Latah County Weed District Over the County Weeds Must go. -— County Commissioners Wage War on Noxious Weeds all ~ June 4th, 1919. Comes now the Board of County Commissioners of Latah County, State of Idaho, and makes the fol lowing order: It is hereby ordered by the Board of County Commissioners that La tah County, State of Idaho, is, and is hereby declared to be a weed dis trict in compliance with section 1942g. to, and including 1942p. of the Revised Codes of Idaho, as a mended by Chapter 112 of the 1919 Session Laws. It is further ordered that the fol lowing named weeds, to-wit: "Jim Hill" Mustard, and wild mustard, Canadian thistle. Burdock, Wild Morning Glory (or Bind Weed) and Fen (or French) weed are detri mental and destructive to agricul tural crops in Latah County, and all such noxious weeds growing within Latah County, Idaho, are hereby ordered destroyed or exter minated as hereinafer described, and all of said work must be com pleted not later than July 1, 1919. Notice is hereby served on all owners and occupants of land in Latah County, Idaho, that said noxious weeds must be exterminat ed upon their premises, which ex tends to the center of the public highway joining the premises of i each land owner. j BURDOCK eradication is to be conducted as follows: I Burdock in small patches should be eradicated by systematic and con tinued hoeing. In fields it should j be controlled by thoro and frequent | cultivation with a tool that will , cut off the roots of the plants. "JIM HILL" MUSTARD eradica tion: I "Jim Hill" Mustard that isjustjed coming up in late sowed spring grain should be destroyed by bar- ! rowing when the grain is up a few i inches. Any msustard that is past ! this stage should be hand pulled! when the plant is coming into' bloom. Plants that have passed the blooming stage should be pul led and burned. WILD MORNING GLORY erad ication: If a patch of this weed appears for the first time, plow up the patch at once before it has time to mature seed, then thoroly harrow it with a spring-tooth harrow if one is a-; vailable. The spring-tooth harrow is perferable because it can be set so as to dig down and bring to the surface the deep net-work of roots. The root-stocks thus brought to the sruface should be raked off and destroyed, for each severed root that becomes covered witi a little soil will give rise to a new plant. Since this weed also propagates itself by seeds as well as by creep ing root-stocks, it is doubly import ant that not a single weed be left in the field. Unless a close watch is kept over the affected spots it is impossible to eradicate this weed the first vear of its appearance. If you have had this weed on your land for some years, drop grains out of the rotation and put in crops demanding extensive cultivation, perferably a hoed crop. Continue the growing of cultivated cropsjof from year to year until the field is entirely cleaned. Prepare infested ground for cultivated crop by early fall plowing. Cultivate frequently and rake up and destroy all the rootstocks brought to the surface, Continue the cultivation as late as the weather will permit. In the spring cultivate until it'is time to plant the cultivated crop. CANADIAN THISTLE eradica tion: In case of small patches one of the following three methods may be used, but must be thoroly and per sistently carried out: (1) Keep the thistle thoroly cut with a hoe, every few days through out the growing season. It may take two seasons to complete the work, but if properly done there will be little further trouble. (2) Thoroughly grub out and re move all underground rootstocks with a spade or shovel. One or , two .operations iê usually sufficient, Keep watch for straggling plants at intervals and treat them in the same w&y. (3) lo smother by placing good, strong tar-paper over them. In us ing this method the paper should overlap well, and be held down by stones, dry soil, or pieces of timber, In cases where whole fields.are infested, the above mentioned methods are impracticable. The eradication of this weed then means that its underground roots must either be grubbed out and gathered, or such surface cultivation employ ed as will result in the starvation of the roots. With this object in view the following two methods are given: ; (1) To plow shallow immediately after harvest. Work with the wide sheer cultivator at intervals until in the fall, then plow deep, turning as many of the roots up as possible, which should be left in this state over winter, whereby they will he killed by the hard frosts. In the In the spring continue this cultivation with the same implement until June, then plow again deep, work 1 * we ll and seed thickly to barley. If this system of cultivation is carried 0 ut thoroly for two years it will practially eliminate this pest. (2) To cultivate early for sum mer-fallow with the wide-sheer spring tooth cultivator, and then p i ow shallow. Continue cultivation. unt jl July, when it should be plow jed deeply. At this time of the year ' the sun is hottest, therefore roots! brought to the surface will be kill by the heat. It can then be either cultivated during the re mainder of the season or prepared extra wel I and then seeded to win ter wheat. j FAN WEED eradication: ; 'in cases where the weed is only growing by stray plants over the farm, hand-pulling, gathering and burning is most effective, and the most sure way of keeping it in check. Where it is found in small patches as the case generally is, some hoe crops should be grown, such as corn, turnips or potatoes. This means the continous cultiva tion of the soil, besides producing reasonable returns from the work. may germintate. In it may be necessary to again before the winter sets in. The following spring plow shallow . On land that is^so badly „ infested that liand-ptflling'is impossible, one of the following methods of cultiva tion may be employed: (a) Cultivate immediately after harvest, so that the surface seed wet sea cultivate and work down each day that which is plowed. Let this stand until more seeds germinate, then culti vate well and seed thickly to oats or barley. Harrow the grain when two inches high, from one to three times at intervals. This will des trov the young weeds and also re duce the grain crop to a proper stand. Barley in this instance is much perferred, as the broad leaf the barley has greater effect in smûothering than oats have. If there is still considerable Stink weed in the crop, it can be cut early for green feed. This system of cul tivation can be carried out for three years, except that the land should be seeded to oats the second year and to spring wheat the third. When seeding the wheat sow reason aly thin and seed down to red clover and timothy or alfalfa. Leave in hay or pasture for a period of years, (b) Start cultivation early as above mentioned, but plow shallow late in the fall if possible and work down. The following spring after weeds are wel I started, plow slight} ly deeper than at the previous plow ing, work down to a fine surface, allow it to remain until more weeds germinate, then plow again, still deeper, bring up more seeds to be Award su ' 000 D, ' ma * c5 The case of Mr. and Mrs. W.

Cut this crop for green feed if there «re any matured Stink weeds. By order of the Board of County Commissioners this 4th day of June, 1919, JONH CONE COLUMBUS CLARK ELMER M. PAULSON Kendrick Defeated Orofino The Kendrick ball team won a twelve-inning game from Orofino last Sudnday, played at Orofino. It was one of the most exciting games played by the Kendrick team this season. Errors were numerous on both sides but these were redeemed by brilliant plays that more than off-set them. In the first of the ninth inning the score stood 10 to 7 in favor of Kendrick. A combination of errors and hits allowed three runs for Oro fino in the last of the ninth, tyir.g the score. In the last of the tenth inning Densow took first base and gave Brown the box. There was a man on second and third and onlv one man down. Brown throws a "rock ball" that is almost impossible to hit out of the diamond. He got the next two Orofino players, fan ning one and retiring the other at first on an infield grounder to the pitcher's box. In the eleventh inning Forest and Carrol! each made a run. Orofino failed to score and lost the game. Forest and Densow were the bat tery for nine innings and Brown finished the game in the box. All three of theseïp layers did splendid work for Kendrick. Densow and Brown are both first class pitchers and make a good combination as they throw a widely different ball. Densow has lots of speed and a wicked curve, while Brown uses less speed and depends mainly on his spit ball. Forest always plavs his position and is the most depend able plaver on the team. He made four out of twelve scores. Jewell and Johnson made up the battery for Orofino and later in the game Rugg took Jewell's place in the box. At the end of the game the score stood 12 to 10 in favor of Kendrick. The same teams will play on the Kendrick diamond Sunday after noon, immediately after the Chau tauqua program. The Bill Collector When living seems a pleasant task, our spuds and things are sprouting, and when we sit and grandly bask and dream about that outing, our happiness is brush ed aside as by a chilly specter. We pull the shutters down and hide. Alas, the bill collector! He's not a bit inclined to fun, he's not a jolly neighbor. Although his work is always "dun," he's al ways at his labor. His heart is hard as polished brick, he's very far from chummy; the way he hounds me makes me sick, he swears he'll get it from me. His faith in humankind is low, his manner is forbidding, and when 1 spring my tale of woe he grumbles, "Quit your kidding." No sympathy is in Ins soul, no milk of human kindness; excepting when J flash a roll, he suffers color blindness. He's blind to all my scalding tears and deaf to all my pleading. 1 wish they'd give him thirty years, the news would make good reading. He robs our daily life ot cheer and adds unto our onus; each time we walk down street we fear he'll chase us down and bone us. How often he has played the fiy and spoil ed our cup of nectar, for when our goose is honking high, we meet the bill collector. He gives our sunny hearts a chill and turns our joy to sorrow; he says "You'll either pay this bill or suit will start tomorrow." Attempts to joke are out of place, our shafts of wit are blunted; we rue the day we ran our face, which now looks drawn and haunted. And when at last they tack some wings upon our dorsal sector, we'll bid good-bye to earthly things and foil the bill collector.—Ex. The Deary Creamery churned three tons of butter last month.
