Troy News:; Dr. Parr is building
a separator to thresh garden seeds
and beans. The cylinder of the
machine is made from the trunk of
the same fir tree that his nephew,
Dick Parr, of Pullman, made a
violin from that he sold to Patta
Wenskia. the noted Russian Violin
ist, for $250. Dr. Parr is making
the machine to stand the work and
is erecting it so that it will have a
fanning mill to clean the seed as it
comes from the separator.
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

prehensive in the annals of the In

Sale Draws Big Crowd
The auction sale of the Carlson
Hardware stock drew an enormous
crowd to Kendrick on the opening
day. Weather conditions were very
favorable and people came from all
over the surrounding country to be
present at the sale. When the doors
opened Wednesday morning the
crowd fairly seethed into the store
and it wasn't long until standing
room was at a premium. Many
were not able to get into the store
during the morning session. The
sale is under the personal manage
ment of G. T. Gregson of the Greg

Installing Ice Machine
N. B. Long & Sons are installing
an ice machine, received the first
of the week. 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
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

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

Ask Damages For Injury
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

action in the matter.

Hon. Chairman and Board of

Kendrick, Latah Co., Idaho.
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 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

settlement and trusts that she will
not be compelled to seek her dam

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
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
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

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
