Genesee News: The Sportsmens' and Tourists' fair held at Spokane last week proved to be as great a success as the most optimistic hoped. Many sections of the Inland Empire entered exhibits with a view to at tracting business and great crowds thronged the show. The consensus of opinion was that the exibition afforded a remarkable opportunity for constructive publicity and that the sections represented in the show would profit very substantially as a result of their enterprise. The ex hibit of game fish was the most com prehensive in the annals of the In land Empire.

The Only Way a if you toot your little tooter And lay awav your horn, Within a week there's not a soul Will knew that you were born. The man who tries to advertise By short and sudden jerks.

The machine is one of the latest types and will be the means of keeping frosted pipes in the refrigerator of the meat market during the hot weather, thus doing away with the inconvenience of handling ice. The machine is operated by an electric motor. It isn't much larg er than an ordinary cream separator but atttachments can be put on making it possible to manufacture blocks of ice in large quantities. The local.firm, however, will use it only for refrigerating purposes. With this machine installed they will be able to put frosted pipes in any of their show cases if they so desire. It is estimated that the cost of opeiating a machine of this size is approximately $20 a month School Election Last Monday Very little interest was manifest ed at the school election last Mon day. M. B. McConnell was nomin ated to succeed N. E. Walker, whose term expired. As there was no opposition, but few votes were cast, only seven in all.

Ibe funeral will be held Thursday morning at 10 o'clock from the Do Hens Pay? Nez Perce County Farm Bureau N ews: The country is full of aban doned poultry houses, yet many farmers who give their poultry the proper care and attention tind it among the most profitable sources of income. It is very often the case that under conditions that the poultry is handled a farmer has to spend as much time taking care of 50 hens as he would 300 under a labor saving plan of operation. Mr Pren Moore, the poultry specialist of the Extension Division, says that the four things that must be given proper attention in handling poul try are feeding, breeding, housing and culling. The neglect of any one of these would mean practical failure. The following from the Sherman county, Oregon, Farm Bureau News, shows what a wheat farmer thinks about poultry: "Fred Cox, of Grass Valley, finds at the close of the year that his White Leghorn hens paid him $4.07è each abuve the cost of feed purchas ed for them. Fred says they paid his store bill throughout the.year and besides be purchased some gas at this store on the same account. "Mr. Cox has a good hen house and sees to it that the hens are com fortable, are kept busy, and have proper feed and in return they shell out commodity that keeps Fred on Easy street while the wheat market sags." According to the records of the Latah county assessor's office, 600 owners of automobiles have not taken out licenses for 1921. Last year there were 2,160 auto licenses sold against 1,560 so far this year. Ask Damages For Injury of the At an adjourned meeting Village Board, held Tuesday even-, ing, a communication from H. P. Hull was read. The communication i asks damages from the Village of Kendrick to the extent of $250 for injuries received by Mrs. Hull last winter. The board will take no action in the matter. Following is a copy of the com munication: Kendrick, Idaho, April 18, 1921 Hon. Chairman and Board of trustees of the Village of Kendrick, Latah Co., Idaho. Genlemen: as On January 16h, 1921. my wife, Mrs. H. P. Hull, while return ing from church, fell on the side ! walk on the west side of 9th street at the alley between Main and A Streets, badly spraining her arm, j tearing the ligaments loose and was \ unable to use said arm for over six I weeks, and is still able to use it only partially. She has suffered great pain ever since and her arm will ; never be in condition it was before the fall. The fall was caused by water over flowing from tne Village reservoii and being allowed to flow,down said sidewalk, also by allowing children to slide with their sleds on the ice formed from said water. I am informed by their negligence as above, the Village of Kendrick is responsible for said fall. Mrs. Hull has been to consider able expense in having her arm at tended to and has suffered from loss of work and great pain by said fall, and notifiies you she holds said Village responsible for her dam ages. That if said claim is paid at once she will take $250.00 in full settlement and trusts that she will not be compelled to seek her dam ages through the courts. Yours respectfully, H. P. Hull. Acting for my wife Mrs. H. P. Hull. Baseball Benefit April 29 Plans have been outlined for the baseball benefit basket social and dance, to be held at the Fraternal Temple, Friday night, April 29, which is a week from today. All of the net proceeds from the dance and sale of baskets will be turned into the baseball fund. As much of the Success of the dance depends upon the ladies bringing well hi led baskets, it might be well to plan on fixing up baskets that will bring about fifteen dollars apiece. The management is advertising the proposition that any basket that is bid up to $15, half ot the amount, or $7.50 will be refunded to the lady who brought the basket, so you see, it will be a money-making scheme both ways. The baskets will be auctioned at 11 o'clock, during an intermission of the dance. Another feature that will prove attractive is thac N. Brocke will serve coffee and it will be free. The baseball management has se cured the U. ot 1. Jazz Hounds to furnish music for the dance. Four games have been scheduled this season as follows: Kendrick at Juliaetta, April 24. Bovill at Kendrick, May 1. Juliaetta at Kendrick, May 8. Kendrick at Lewiston, May 15. Rock Crusher Delayed The rock crusher, ordered by the Kendrick Highway District, has tieen delayed in transit. Mr. Davis, representative of the company, phoned from Lewiston last week that a carload of crusher sshipped out ot Portland had been in a wreck and the one billed tor Kendrick had been damaged to some extent. He said it was optional with the com- i missioners here whether he should j send this crusher or return it to the j factory and have a new one shipped | to Kendrick. As the commissioners | will not be ready for several weeks ; to begin crushing rock, they chose to have a new machine shipped out of Portland. It ought to be here most any time. Club Met Tuesday Evening Last Tuesday evening the Get-To Gether Club met at the Electric Cafe during the dinner hour to dis cuss matters of importance to the town. Owing to very poor weather conditions the attendance was not as large as usual, but those who were present enjoyed a splendid dinner prepared by the management for the occasion. The feast i*as most ample and well served and those whose places were vacant missed a real treat. The first business of the evening was a report of the Sportsmen's and Tourists' Fair, which was held at Spokane last week. S. P. Callison gave a brief outline of the features of the fair and stated that the ex hibit sent from Kendrick was unique, in that it was ot a more j general nature than from any other \ locality. Most of the exhibits were I sportsmen's trophies entirely, while the one from Kendrick included agricultural displays, medals, cups, ; prizes, etc., as well as a fine display of mounted heads ot deer, elk, mountain goat and specimens of stuffed birds and other interesting trophies. Mr. Callison stated that the Kendrick exhibit drew tortn many favorable comments The Club thanked Mr. Callison and Mr. Thomas for the interest they had taken in the matter. Attention was then directed to the appointment of a comu'ittee from the Club to work with a committee from the American Legion to put on a celebration in Kendrick, July 4. Following was the committee named: Ralph B. Knepper, A. V. Dunkle, M. O. Baby, N. E. Walker and Edgar Long. The committee was instructed to meet with the ex ecutive committee from the Amer ican Legion and formulate plans for the coming celebration. Harry Stanton member of the local school board gave a short talk gave a stating that unless there was some other means ot raising money to run the school than the regular and special levy allowed by law there would have to be some retrenching done next year a3 it was impossible to get sufficient funds to keep the school going at its present standard. He suggested that it would be a good idea for everyone present to think over the proposition of form ing an independent school district. This would necessitate the electiorf of five trustees instead of three. The trustees would handle all school funds but ho special afeT* could be received from the county— Good and bad points regarding the new plan were brought up. A communication from the Ellison White Chautauqua Company was read hy Chairman McKeever. The letter stated that the dates tor the Kendrick Chatauqua would be June 15-19 inclusive. It was decided to have a general meeting of the guar antors Saturday evening, May 7, at which time plans will be laid for the best method of handling the Chautauqua this year. There was nothing further of interest brought up, and as the hour was late a motion to adjourn was unanimously carried. Uppers vy Lowery A most thrilling baseball game was played on the local diamond last Saturday afternoon when the upper end ol town boys played the lower end boys. The dividing line be tween the contesting teams was the city park. When the whistle blew for the contest to start there were only five men on each side. How ever, as the shortage of four players on each team was mutual, the game proceeded without any apparent in convenience from the scarcity of players. The score at the end of the game was 12 to 1 in favor of the Following is the lineup: Wilson Rogers, Wallace i Uppers, j Uppers: j Bramer, Robert Dammarell, How | ard Dammarell, Wesley Austin*, | Lowers: De I bet t Turner, Tony Huff ; man, Car Sparber, Harry Flaig, Walter Brocke.
