Deary Press:; If the crops in this
section keep growing as they have
started and reach maturity without
mishap, there will be some great
yields to brag about this fall. Re
minds us of four years ago, when
there was so much rainy weather
that the farmers were away late
with their seeding and Deary folks
were still making garden along in
June, and between showers at that.
There was an enormous crop that
year. The fields fairly bulged. It is
starting off the same way this time.
If we have the same yields we had
that year and the farmers can get
a dollar or thereabouts for their
wheat, there'll be heaps of good
times in the Potlatch country. We
shall all forget the past lean years
and hair that has turned gray from
worry over high costs and low
prices during these laHer! months
will speedily resume its natural
sorrel or other original hue.
Ttoy News: Troy fishermen met
with^ a brief, bad scare on Wednes
day when the Spokesman-Review
, correspondent in Moscow announc
ed that State Warden Otto Jones
was closing the streams in Latah
county against fishing. Investiga
tion showed, however, that the por
tions closed were the tributaries to
the Potlatch river above Helmer,
and the upper reaches of the Pal
ouse river above Grizzly Camp.
Old sportsmen state that there is
plenty of open water left so that
local fishermen will get their fill of
sport with the finny tribe.
Genesee News: The work of com
pleting the surfacing and curbing
of the streets that have recently
been graveled m Genesee is being

be done but it is expected that
many improvements will be made
before fall.

are in place the speed ordinance

tact that Kendrick is going to have

'Eulightening The Lambs"
Ait Rognstad of Big Bear ridge
still contends that wheat is going
to reach a high mark. To sub
stantiate his claim he sent in the
following clipping which was writ
ten by an independent crop statis
tician. Wnether it has merit or
not willl be demonstrated within
the next two months.
"Any farmer who sells the
mainder of his grain crop below the |
cost of production will be a fit can
didate for a lunatic asylum. The
unbounded generosity of the Amer
iean farmer has brought us face to
face with a wheat famine. 800
million bushels ol wheat have al-;
ready lett the country and another j
100 million bushels have been sold i
for exportation. There never was
a time when future - needs were as
recklessly disregarded as now. The
visible supply all sold and farm re
serves dwindling away. Bakers and
grocers without reserve stocks of
flour and milleis without wheat.
Everybody living in blissful ignor
ance of the dangerous shortage of
breadstuff or seemingly bent on
ignoring true conditions. The ,
trade holding off in a vain endeav- \
or to cajoje the farmer into giving
away the remainder of Ins pro
ducts after having already sacrificed
the bulk of his crop to meet
world's cry for food.
"It needs no prophetic power to
foresee the awakening which is !
shortly coming to the innocent!
lambs who have" sold 'the crop on
Apr il scenery and enabled the cash
interests to cover their foreign
committments. They are now hold
ing the bag and when the farmer 1
discontinues his charitable dis
tribution of foodstuffs, where will I
they get off? He must do so ini
order to continue farming. His
wheat crop cost him $2.77 a bushel
to raise and the corn crop cost him
$1.25 a bushel. No red-blooded
American will expect the man who
feeds us to make further sacrifices.
If the price is too high, let the;
,, « —,
Government nil the gap, as Europ-:
. . .
ean governments have done, and not
take it all away from the farmer.
Americans are not seeking charity.
They are ready to pay the cost of
production for anytning they need
and foreign buyers will have to do
the same.
"If the foreign buyers succeed in
getting the wneat which they have
already purchased out of the
country the situation will be alarm
ing. They own all the visible sup
ply and have contracted for the best
part of the remaining farm re
serves. Every bushel of grain in
consumption before the next crop ot
wheat is available.
"The first part of the new crop
will sell even higher than the old
crop. With no carry-! ver stocks
on hand in any part of the world,
exporters will be in tierce com
petition with millers during July
and August and the price will be a
secondary consideration.

Charles Sattler Leaves
hereinabove speeilied for the service
! mentioned.
Charles Sattler left yesterday for
the Oddfellows' Home at Caldwell,
Idaho, where he will probably spend
ihe rest of his days. His departure
marks the loss of one ot the three
oldest pioneers of Kendrick. Over
thirty years ago he came here anb
Dr. Rothwell and Wm. Meyers are
the only two left who were in
Kendrick at that time.
Over twenty years ago he owned
a tannery located close to the Pot
latch creek bottom near the lower
, .. , u . -,
'.lend ot town. He was doing quite
a flourishing business as he was an
expert tanner and had a wide repu
tation as a ranner of furs. Hunt
ers from all over the country sent
hides to him to be tanned for rugs.
In January 1900 the flood washed
away his tannery and hundreds of
green hides which he had in stor
age. All he was able to salvage
from the disaster was $6.00 worth
of partly spoiled hides which were
washed up on the creek banks.
in later years he has made his
living from a small flock of chick
ens ' lhi f source of income - how *
ever, finally became inadequate and
owing to his advanced age he was
finding it impossible to make a liv-1
ing. The members ot the local I. O.
O. F. Lodge hnaily prevailed upon
him to go to the lodge home, an in
stitution which was recently built
at Caldwell. After he had made up
his mind to go he locked forward
with pleasure to the change of
environment and felt satisfied that
for the rest of his days he would be
well cared for.

Wôn Game by Close Margin
of 5 to 4
The best game of the season was
played last Sunday on the local dia
mond between Kendrick and Ore
flno. The two teams were very
evenly matched as the score would
indicate. Until the last of the
eighth inning the visiting team was
in the lead, but a batting raliy on
the part of the locals brought in
two scores which gave them the
Kendrick bad a good lineup Sun
day. Every man on the team was a
ball player of experience, altho the
long string ot errors recorded dur
ing the game indicates that
practice is sally needed to bring
the team up to consistent playing
McCrery pitched a great game.
In spite of the tact that 11 errors
were made hy his team he held the
visitors to 4 hits and 4 runs. Mac
always pitches the best ball when
he is in a tight place, which is a
valuable asset to a pitcher and to
the team.
One of the features of the game
was the fact that three times the
three Carlson brothers were all
on bases, hast playing on the part
of the Orofino team was all that
saved a goodly number of runs for
Kendrick secured 5 hits, 4 of
them being for 2 bases. Orofino
got 4 hits. Bulflnch and Bolon each
got a 2 bagger and McCall knocked
2 clean twu-base hits. Kendrick
made 11 errors and Orofino 5. Mc
Crery struck out 11 men and Oro
fino pitcher 6. _
Kendrick's outfield had little to
do, most of the batted balls going
to the infield.
The return game to be played at
Orofino next Sunday promises to be
a fast one.
Low Cost of Advertising
! Few advertising men know that
j advertising space in newspapers is
! foy f ar t( ie most economical way to
rea ch the consumer. It is a fact
anc j the only reason that advertising
j was ever created was because wise
an( j shrewd business men learned
La- [ that they could buy white space in
publications at a minimum cost and
because of the message they would
put j n t 0 that space they could make
a profit on the transaction and make
the advertising a real investment,
in production of sales and good-will.
In these days of high cost of white
paper and printing the advertiser
j could not print a full page adver
tisement and buy the white paper
at the small cost that the newspaper
charges him for the complete page
delivered into the homes by invita
tion. That is to say, the readers of
this newspaper buy a paper because
the ! they want to read it and because
Is ; they know they get more tor their
mo * ev at 2 or 8 cents than any
thing else they could buy at that
p nce That is what makes the ad
vertising so valuable to the adver
tiser, provided they have the right
message , the right illustration and
the right merchandising plan back
of the advertising. Newspaper ad
D. vertising is by far the most econom
ic! method to reach the consumer.—
