Dunlap, Justice of the Peace. The KENDRICK GAZETTE PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY BY RALPH B. KNEPPER. Subscription $1.50 a Year. Payable In Advance Entered at Kendrick, Idaho, 1892, as 2nd Class Matter, under Act of Congress of March 3. 1879. Advertising Rates furnished upon request. The Potlatch country could fur nish some splendid farm products for an agricultural exhibit this sea son. Potatoes and nearly all late vegetables are above the ordinary, both in size and quality. The writer has never seen or heard of a country where such a large variety of vege tables, fruits, grasses and grains can be grown as right here in the Potlatch. The editor of the Latah County Press is even boosting the raising of sugar beets in that local ity, Of course they can be grown here successfully and the same can be said of almost everything else that grows. to of This wonderfully rich farming country is gradually falling farther behind every other progressive com munity in the land in the matter of permanent road building. There is no other country that needs good roads any more than this. The •grades that have been used for the past twenty-five years were all right twenty-five years ago but it would seem tnat where everything else has progressed in such a splendid man ner, roads, the most needed im provement of all, should be rebuilt and made to conform to the require ments of these modern times. Leland and Cameron started a fine thing when they almost unanimous ly voted to form a good roads dis trict. Their further progress will be watched with considerable in terest. If the progressive people on the Potlatch ridge bond the district and build a hard surfaced road to Kendrick, their nearest railroad centre, it will be the beginning of one of the greatest boosts this sec tion of the country has ever exper ienced. Othqr ridges will fall in line and build permanent roads as soon as the "ice is broken." Good roads districts seem to be the only solution to permanent road build ing and the natural topography of the country would indicate that each ridge will have to solve its own problem. The resources of the various ridges are more than" suffic ient to warrant permanent road con struction and it is only a question of a short time until farmers will demand the organization of good roads districts. to of in as of its An exchange says: A nun.ber of our exchanges have been speculat ing cn what would happen if the government took over the news papers. Well, the first thing the subscription price would be raised about 50 per cent and the sheriff would be kept busy chasing delin quents. The next step would be to raise wages 25 per cent and the editors who hadn't had a cent in six months they could call their own, would be placed on a salary The merchants who fail to get their ad copy in until press day would be hauled up before the council of de fense and our linotype man who hired out for two weeks and quit his job in a week would be sent to Leavenworth for about ten years as a deserter. It looks like a good proposition and we are for it. The location of Kendrick is a nat ural beauty spot. The town itself, could be made a very sightly place if every property owner would take pride in putting his place in a pre sentable condition. There are a number of old sheds around town that ought by all means to be torn down. Thev give the town a "poor white trash" appearance that cannot be remedied by the few individuals who try to keep their proprety up to standard. A little cleaning up and a coat of paint will do won dres tor a place. Sermon by Dr Smith Fleeing From Man—Finding God. Text—"And Jacob went out from Beersheba and Jacob awoke out of his sleep and he said 'surely the Lord is in this place." Gen. 28: 10 and 16. Jacob was a failure and later be came a success. It is almost as difficult to be a real failure as it is to become a real success. Jacob's adviser, his mother, was a very selfish unscrupulous person. Had little or no regard for truth or honesty, simply assuming that any means justified the desire. Lishonor, lying, deceiving, steal ing all 0. K with her only that she win. Jacob thus in the hands of even his mother became a wretched failure, an outcast and a fugative from justice. Thus many men and women in their hour of temptation become loosers and must flee for their lives —yes flee—but where? From jus tice, being pinched, being haunted and scarce know where to go or to whom to go, they just aimlessly go out into a friendless world, hop ing against hope, at last weary, worn, sad and hungry lay down any where to rest. Then if God ever was believed in, it ever prayed to, for success or ever asked for mercy, then prayer, yes heart yearning prayer goes up to God and even then, God a mer ciful God hears and offers a way for help; I. Man Fleeing From Man. There are no beasts so savage and revengeful as a wronged brother by a brother. There seems to be no limit to his revenge. Esau even said "after th'e days of mourning of my father then will I slay my brother (twin brother) Jacob." What a flight, what a failure in life. It is no disgrace to be a simple failure if honestly come to. Abraham Lin coln made a failure as an officer in the militia, he made a failure as a merchant, as a blacksmith ,as a car penter, but finally he became a law yer and succeeded. Grenfield, one of the famous missionaries was a failure as a minister, and later be came a renowned evangelist. J. B. Gough, John Bunyon, Gipsy Smith and hosts of men were fail ures both morally and spiritually and fled from men because of it. The best resolve a man under any circumstances can make is to seek truth and right first, then their bearing and go ahead. Have a pur pose true, keep to the right ever to the right. Be sure you are going to a goal and then unfurl all your sails to the wind. Remember you can steer a a up up of the 10 be as is a she of ship only when she is under steam. She may for a while be coursed out pf line, but she can be ruddered into a safe harbor. But a steamless ship can only be tossed by the waves and at last cast upon the rock to perish. So is it with a man without moral and spiritual purpose and energy tieeing, not knowing where. Everybody loves a man with a purpose; oh friend, be a man, a man impelled by pure and right motives. Heed not to any plan to defraud your brother, your home, your church and your God. Let not your better judgement be overcome with evil and you will never have to flee from man. II. Finding God. God is a consumihg fire to sin, a redeeming spirit to a broken and a contrite heart. He never passes a ~ penitent sinner who is alone, for saken in the world without extend ing a vision to him. His word is come to me with all your sins, come with all your failures, come with all your discouragements, come just as you find yourself out in the dark on the mountain, with only the stars as your companions, come. Seek me, call upon me, knock for meandlwiM be found. I will dir ect you, I will make your life a suc cess. This is God's way of dealing with men who have failed. He saved Lincoln, Grenfield, Gough, Bunyon, Gipsy Smith and Moody and He will save you, dear friend. But lest I forget, let us look for a minute at this Jew, Jacob, who found God. The very first thing he wanted to do was to give God a trade, one-tenth tithe for the bless ing. This was as it should be, give back to God of his own, over which He has made you Steward. He was a generous giver. There are three kinds of givers, the flint, the sponge and the honeycomb. The flint must be hammered and then only gives chips and a spark. The sponge must be squeezed and then gives gener ously just as you squeeze, hard or light. The honeycomb gives over flowing with sweetness and gives al ways cheerfully. When we find God may we, Jacob like, covenant to give God his share. It is true his is a day and time of giving, with the seven great war causes, oh how we have been giving, but do not forget the God of heaven who gives you so bounti fully to give, give Him his tithe and you will have enough left to pay all your debts and obligations too. Find God, find Him now and to day covenant with him like Jcob did. Do it now. Let not the price of labor or pro ducts cause you to take away from God that which is his own and you will prosper and be happy. in to in, or up for and by no said my a It Lin in a car law one a be fail any seek their pur to goal the a Letter From Californin The following letter was written to Guy Lewis from H. A. Walker, who drove by car from here: Los Angeles, Nov. 13. "Well" we have finally reached our destination, which is in southern California in the suburbs of Los Angeles. Am working for an Over land dealer. My car now registers on the speedometer 61%) jpiiles and was 3400 whenJ îéKnome. Have been gone 36 days. Car worked just fine all the way—no trouble at all. Used 2 gallons of oil for the trip and while touring I averaged 26 and nine-tenths miles to the gal lon of gas. We took in on our trip Portland, Frisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Long Beach, Seal Beach, Venice, Santa Monica and other places. At all of the beaches you can see any amount of bathers and they stay all winter. We go to some beach every Sunday. I have a fair job and get 70 cents an hour for 9 hours. Living here I think is a little cheaper. House rent, with .furniture, costs us $30 per month. Say, talk about roads, you ought to see them. From Frisco to San Diego, nearly 500 miles, all pave ment and just think of it—30 miles speed limit! Over that means the jug for from 30 days to 6 months— Awful. And believe me they know how fast you are running too. We are living in an orange country, in fact the prettiest part of Cailfornia and we traveled the whole length of the state.
