iX\ Some Facts About Piano Quality We all know that among the makers of the best piano's there is a very keen rivalry, each maker desiring that the world should know his make of piano to be the best. But not being able to make the public believe each of their different plea's and arguments, it is up to them to, in some way, prove that their particular make of in strument is the leader. So, every tour years, each ot these makers of our highest grade pianos, takes one ot his instruments and places it on exhibition at our world's fairs, and each is sure that the good judges will award him the grand prize. • Now, my interest in telling you these facts is this: 1 am the factory representative, for this territory, for the make of piano which won The Grand Prize and Gold Medal in the year 1900 at our worlds fair, and this same piano maker has taken first place at every worlds fair since that time. Of course this piano maker has had competition such as "the Steinway," "Chickering," "Emerson," "Haines," "Cable" "Mason & Hamlin" and others, but the MATCHLESS ,Grand Pri\fPdrrm 1900. have been awarded first place, and it seems they are going to main tain it, because for the last eighteen years, the most competent of music critics have to say, "The Baldwin is Supreme." Before I began handling pianos and player pianos, I spent about one year finding out for sure what make I could absolutely depend upon, both for tone and for durability. I wasn't willing to take the piano maker's word for it, nor was I satisfied with the opinion 1 might get from various great musicians who are able to judge piano quality. So finally I took the matter up with the proper author ities at Washington, D. C. and asked for a candid and unbiased opinion on several makes of high grade pianos. It was after receiving this information direct from Washington, D. C. that I knew positively w'hat make of piano to handle— THE BALDWIN PIANO BUT LISTEN! H re is another fact that is surprising. I sell the famous Baldwin piano for much less money than is being charged for these other makes which had to be contented with second and third prize honors—and I will tell you why. The Baldwin Piano Co. is the largest piano company in the world outside of the American piano trust. This trust makes what we call "get rich quick" pianos. And with the vast resources and manufacturing facilities the Baldwin Company, is able to produce pianos at much less expense than other companies with smaller capital and factories. This is one reason for the low price on this wonderfully high grade instrument. The second reason, and to my notion a very important one too, is the fact that I sell pianos on the same principle that I sell tables, rocking chairs and beds—small profit and many sales. I do not spend weeks of my time traveling around to make a piano sale, but instead, I buy my instruments from a company who, by their great economy of manufacture are able to sell to their direct representatives at a very low price. Then I place these pianos and players in my store and mark them at a very small profit. You can see at a glance why I am able to sell you a piano for much less money than you would pav to any other agent for an inferior make. And say, now that we've got the kaiser licked a good and plenty and your troubles are over, whv not treat the family to one of these wonderful Baldwin pianos. A lifetime guarantee of musical pleasure for as low a price as $250.00 if you wish. We will give as liberal terms as any legitimate house can give and assure you a big saving in price. Step in at any time and let's talk it over. Kendrick Furniture Company The KENDRICK GAZETTE PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY BY RALPH B. KNEPPER. Subscription $1.50 a Year.

WE NEED BETTER ROADS One of the great problems con fronting the American people now is to get back to normal conditions after having been on a war basis so long and so thoroughly. From five to ten million men will be released from the employment they have had, soldiering, ship-building, mak ing guns or ammunition, building air planes and other work that be longs exclusively to war. These men must have employment in other lines. We cannot afford to have several million idle men in the* United States. We must keep them busy for "Satan finds some mischief still for idle hands to do." If these men are r.ot given profit able employment by which they can earn a livelihood we may look for such scenes as are being enacted in Europe where soldiers return to their homes to find no employment and no food and they start revolu tionary movements. The federal government is urging the states, countries and common wealths everywhere to start some kind of work that will furnish em ployment for these men. In the west the building of roads is being advoated. It shoud become popular. If Idaho would raise by popular subscription as much money as she has given to the Red Cross and other organizations for the relief of the soldiers and invest it in good roads, employing men thrown out of employment by the ending of the war to do the work, it would be one of the best investments the state ever made. If Latah county were to raise as much money for road building as she has raised for the organizations mentioned and expend it wisely, it would mean much to the county and every town in it. Let us give this matter careful consideration. There must be work for all who want it.—Star-Mirror. How many farmers know how much an average working day, fig ured in dollars and cents, is worth to him and how much he earns On the average by his own individ ual efforts each working day during the year? It would be interesting to figure the value of a day as a part of the overhead expense of your farming operations. It would nec essitate keeping rather an exact ac count of the year's farming oper ations and a segregation of the pro fits and loss columns. It would no doubt be very surprising to the average farmer to know how valu able his time really is. It ought to start him to thinking about the many valuable days of lost time used up hauling his grain and farm products over the present system of roads in the Potlatch. The sav ing in time alone during the fall of the -year when time is so very valu able, would go a long way toward minimizing the cost of building roads fit to travel over. You can soon arrive at a rough estimate of what a day is worth to your farm ing operations. Then multiply this amount by the days lost on account of bad roads and you will find there is a big leakage in your buisness operations on the farm.

It is amusing, though, how much printed figures can lead the imagina tion astray. One good lady came to sell a quite modern coffee pot, with the catalogue number, 1431, stamped on the bottom. Now, it might have been worth, perhaps, a dollar and a half, and she asked five hundred for it be cause it was made "before Columbus discovered America."—Alice Van Leer Garrick, in the House Beautiful.

Rubert Booke, exposing the folly of those complaining that the Elizabethan drama is coarse, remarked : "Their wail that its realism is mingled with indecency is more than thrice repeated.

HELP SUPPLY OF HEAT AID SUM» Live Stock and Sugar Beets Make Most Profitable Com bination for Farmer. INCREASE GROWERS'PROFITS Animals Utilize Tops and Pulp to Best Advantage—Manure Can Be Used to Enrich Soil—Other Feeds Are Necessary. ^Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) Swear-beet growers should utilize more live stock. The stock utilizes by-products of sugar-beet growing— the tops and pulp—and increases the growers' profits, but there is another renson-the nation needs more meat as well ns sugar. The combination of stock raising and sugar-beet growing, while beneficial to farmers will also benefit the nation. Live stock on tjtf* sugar-beet farm constitutes an Impor tant factor in success of beet-grow ing from two standpoints: (1) The utilization of beet tops and pulp to the best advantage, and (2) the pro duction of stable or barnyard manure, which can be used to enrich the soil. The feeding operations should be lo cated on the farms where the best tops are produced. M hen practicable, the pulp should be bandied with frame and fed. There should be available labor for handling the stock, and oth er feeding stuffs used in combination with the pulp and tops should be ob tainable. Good Feed for Stock. Sugar-beet tops and pulp are good feed for many kinds of live stock in cluding chickens, bogs, sheep, cattle, and, to some extent, horses. Gener ally, the tops and pulp are fed to sheep and cattle. They may be pas tured off. n process which consists in turning the live stock into the beet field after the beets have been har vested and the roots removed. The tops are left scattered over the ground, and this method of feeding results in the ground being more or less trampled. Sheep especially are in clined to travel more generally In paths, thereby trampling the ground unevenly. In no case should the pas turing of the tops ho permitted when the ground Is wet, since the ground itself would he seriously injured by trampling in that condition and many of the tops would lie wasted by being trampled into the ground. While live stock thrives on beet tops and pulp, other feed must he used in finishing the animals for the market. Beet tops, especially tin* crowns, contain considerable mineral matter, which is beneficial to live stock, but it should^ not be fed in too large quantities. Aside from pasturing the tops, they are sometimes allowed to cure partly and are then gathered into piles. 1 h "«led to the feed yard and fed in racks. This is a much more economi : cnl motliod than pasturing, but It in volves the additional expense of gath ering and hauling. The tops may also he used as ensilage. When chopped with straw, cornstalks or other rough age excellent silage is produced. Both the tops and the pulp are excellent for Simple But Satisfactory Trough. Feeding dairy cows, since they act as a tonic upon the animals as well as a food, and increase the flow of milk. Pulp is either used fresh or dried. It is dried artificially, either by itself or In combination with molasses. The ob ject in drying the pulp is to make It easier to handle. About 80 per cent of the weight is lost In drying. The dried pulp should he soaked for sev eral hours before it is fed to stock. Helps Milk Flow. Animals cannot be finished for the market on the beet by-products alone, and unless other feed is available It " 91 not be advisable to purchase ani mals for feeding purposes with a view to turning them on the market later. If the farmer is provided with dairy cows, it is advisable to furnish them with one or two feeds of tops or pulp each day. The tops, when cured or pitted, will keep for several months;: the pulp, when left in a large pile, xCill not spoil for feeding purposes, ex cept a thin layer on the surface. If the tops or the pulp are fed heavily to dairy cows, a distinct Increase In the flow of milk marks the top and pulp-feeding period, and there will generally be a distinct falling off la the flow of milk when this feed is dis continued. If the supply of tops and P U " ited ' U is better to con tinue the feeding over a longer period, fnVm g tf ® m ." Uer "mount to each of the animals daily.
