Boost For Better Roads Into KencMck KENDRICK GAZETTE Subscription Price $1.50 In Advance VOLUME 31. KENDRICK. LATAH COUNTY. IDAHO. FRIDAY. FEBRUARY 4. 192 1 NUMBER 5 Over The County Deary Press: All of the Potlatch Lumber company's logging camps in this vicinity, as well as the Pot latch mill, were closed down this week. Camp 2 at Princeton, cut ting timber on state land will con tinue to operate, as the company's contract witn the state requires that timber on state land be remov ed within a specified time. The shut down was brought about mainly by the present market con ditions, it is said. The company has an immense supply of lumber in its yards at Potlatch, movement of which for months has been very slow. High freight rates to the eastern markets and scarcity of cars have been factors that have also in terfered with the ready marketing of western lumber, of which this 'company is the largest single pro ducer.

It is a sound that is seldom heard except wnen a stag has Leen temporarily deserted by his mate. In this par ticular instance the call came from Art Rognstad and those who were versed in the language, knew that there was to be a rendezvous of all the stags from the highest cliffs to the lowest vales of Bear ridge. A band of thirty-four answered the summons and on the evening of January 19, began gathering at the Rognstad stamping grounds. At the entrance cunningly concealed wires formed pitfalls that caused the downfall of many a young stag whose head was too high in the air. There was a second surprise, how ever, that was of a still more startl ing nature. It was generally understood that this particular party was to be for gtagg on)y u wag also definitely Rnown that the wife of the host was supposed tQ be there . JudKe then the surpnse of those who timid , knocked at the door - when they were met by a handsome young lady, and a strange one at that, This was indeed a shock to the f friends of Mr Rognstad as he was suposed to have nothing but gentle men friends in the house. However the shock was no greater than the disappointment when it was learned that the handsome female was none other than Ingvald Aas, dressed in the latest Parisian costume import ed for the occaison from some young lady's wardrobe. The festivities began with a most interesting program, presided over ny N. E. Ware, who was appointed for the evening to be the man with the Big Stick. The first number was a selection by the Bear Ridge Orchestra, which was repeatedly encored. This was followed by a reading by Mr. Ware, entitled "A Dream". The next number was a very pathetic account of "A Sick Jew" given bj. Milo Slind. D. Galloway then gave a reading "A Border on His Way", and Percy Ware brought tears of anguish to the eyes of the crowd by his account of "Mutt Going to the Country", "Miss" Ingvald Aas told about "The Shipwrecked Swede", and a double quartet sang "The Gang's All Here". | 0ne of the athletic features of the evening was the pie eating contest between stag B engs and stag Hecht. The hands of the two contestants were tied behind them and the pies p)ancd on tbe table. The former . won the contest and demonstrated in a most satisfactory manner his superior gastronomic ability. It is said that the pies were of the choco late variety, which made it still more interesting. Cards and other games served to pass away the evenng all too soon The finale was a most pleasing sur at prise. The host was relagated to the discard and was replaced by the a hostess, Mrs. Rognstad, who was assisted by Miss Suppiger and Miss ice Aas in serving a delightful supper, It was truly a most satisfying "feed" that delighted every mas culine heart and the unanimous vote of thanks to the three ladies was but a feeble attempt on the part of the guests, to express their appreciation. Aside from a delightful time, the evening was productive of the form : a tj on of a Stag Club with Ingvald Aas, president; T. Nelson, vice president; D. Jones, sec-treas. Through the united efforts of this band of stags some big times are said to be in store for the young * i people of Bear ridge.
