Roads Into Kendrick KENDRICK GAZETTE Subscription Price $ 1.50 In Advance VOLUME 31. KENDRICK. LATAH COUNTY. IDAHO. FRIDAY. JUNE 24,1921 NUMBER 23 Over The County Deary Press—Some people who have money in the bank are wander ing where they would get off if thieves were to break In and steal it, There is no cause for worry on that «core. Banks «re fully insured against as Joss from holdups, burglary or theft, ' a and when money is stolen from them j the insurance company makes good i the amount taken. So you see your rtioney is much safer in the bank than it is in your pocket or.hidden away in the cracked sugar bowl. More over, the insurance folks maintain the best detective service in the world and Immediately after a bank has been robbed, sets its keenest sleuths upon the trail of the robbers. It nearly always catches them. If the editor 'had any money, and knew he had to have it stolen, he'd make every effort to have it stolen from the bank -—because then he'd get every cent of it back. j Juliaetta Record—W. ,T. Harris, j who resides a short distance up the j a creek, states that he will have lots of j apricots this season, quite a few nec-j larines, but very few peaches. He j has some walnut trees pretty heavily loaded and the indications are that j he will get a good yield this year. Mr. Harris has recently purchased a drag j saw which will cut about 12 cords of wood per day on good ground and cutting wood on the place he pur- j chased some time ago adjoining his j home place. He expects to cut about [ 5o cords now and this winter intends j to cut 100 cords more. There are j about 300 eords of wood on the place, j he says, including large and small i timber. It is mostly yellow pine and j fir. ! | | j | j l j | Troy News—As a result of the playground movement started during the Chautauqua a swimming pool is to be buili for the boys and girls. On Wednesday forenoon a meeting of in terested citizens was held in the tent and a committee went from there to select a site. The boys stand ready to do as much of the work as they can and from the enthusiasm shown by both young and older workers the coveted pool will be a fact in a short time. Details for handling the move ment will be worked out by. the older ■workers and when it is opened the pool will be in charge of older men or women on the days alloted to boys and girls separately. One of the plans suggested is for a bath house where suits can be changed and a dam will be built to store the water during the season when the creek is low. The site chosen by the com mittee was a place in the creek ad jacent to the Troy Lumber Com pany's plant and if the use of the spot can be obtained from the company work on the pian will be begun at once. ! | j j I ; j I j j I j j I Gravel surfacing of the Rimrock | highway is in, progress and some j three-quarters of a mile has already j been finished It is estimated that about a mile end a half will be sur faced this season. When completed I it will give the people of that section j hard road outlet to both Genesee and Lewiston as it connects with the North and South state road at the Jngle school house. Building New Road X - The highway district machinery was taken to American ridge the | first of the week and work com menced on the new stretch of road from the corner near the Wade Keene place to the old Russell prune drier. The building of this stretch of road has been, 1 contemplated for a good many years. Its completion will mark a wonderful improvement on American ridge. The present road bed follows . , around and over a number of steep WJ1 ,_ T . __,______ ___ ^____ hills. It also has some very danger cus curves. The new location for the road practically eliminates all of the hills and will make a splendid stretch of road which is favorably located for a permanent highway. Practically all of the work to be done can be handled with the tractor and grader as it is all dirt work. It may be found necessary to make one small fill but the expense attached to it will not be large. The Horse Heaven country is ex pecting the largest wheat crop in years. Many fields are estimated at 30 bushels to the acre, which is a large yield for that district. Return from California A L. A. Grjnolds, better known heré as "Jake," arrived Tuesday from Lew iston. He and his family returned recently from a tour of California in their Dodge car. They spent twelve weeks on the trip, carrying with them a camping outfit. They saw a great deal of beautiful country but. liked Idaho better so on their return they purchased 10 acres of land in the Lewiston Orchards, where they will make their home. The land has no improvements but they expect to build seen. \ Fix Harvest Wages the According to O. E.

Idaho Produces Wood Oils Star-Mirror—Idaho can produce its j .ai wood oils for the concentration I tt " "f lead, zinc and copt flotation process, rather than having i to send to the south or to the Great I is or the eastern states, says a th the Whit Lakes < bulletin Just published by tlie l nlver sUy of Idaho. The flotation process extensively used in the eoncentra tl,,u of these ores in Idaho and other «"stern states. It is estimated that there will be 100 million cords of wood waste available in Idaho Forests for the manufacture of by-products The report embodies the results of investigations made Jointly by the school of forestry and the school of mines of the "university, in cooperation with the state bureau of mines and The bulletin is the work of 1. VV. Cook and Henry Schmitz of the school of forestry and Louis A. Grant of the state bureau of mines and ge ology. "The net result of the investiga- tion," says the bulletin, "shows that v certain of the oils are well adapted " i large tee r that flotation use, and the conclusion is reached that persons contemplating the manufacture of forest by products would do well to consider the advisability of producing thus fractions which are demonstrated a having a flotation value. The total stand of merchantable timber in the state of Idaho has been variously estimated at from 98 to 130 billion feet, board mieasure. Eaieh billion feet of lumber manufacture entails a waste through logging and milling of a volume equivalent to from one to one and a half billion feet, board measure. If the lower figure is taken in each instance it is evident that in the manufacture of thq (nerchamtalble timber of Idaho there will be a waste of approximate ly 9 8 billion feet, board measure, equivalent to eight billion cubic feet or 109 million cords. It is evident then that the supply of raw material j for any industry utilizing wood waste enormous A large percentage of wood oils | row produced* and used in the flota to Dr. son, A. cox, A. A. G.

Band Prospects Bright l A -- With the arrival of Walter and KaroI(3 Thom as last week local band Oils produced by the destructive distillation of western red cedar, yel low pine and white fir were classed as fair flotation agents, compared to the standard oils used. The bulletin contains many columns of figures showing in detail the re sults of the experiments, both in the distillation of the oils and in their use in the flotation process. stock v^ent to par.

Juliaetta Wins Again | errors, the game was so close it kept | the enthusiasm of the crowd at fever heat. -- ; Juliaetta won her fourth straight victory from Kendrick in a hotly con tested game at Juliaetta last Monday ; afternoon. It was a hard fought bat-j tie, the distinguishing tenure of the ; game being the consistent hitting by ! both teams. The final score was 15 ; to 14, the deciding run being made in I the ninth inning by Juliaetta. ; Kendrick pitched AIcCrery, Densow i and Thomas while Ross did the pitch-! ing for Juliaetta. ' At one stage of the game Kendrick bad a six-run lead but hard hitting by Juliaetta and a number of errors cn the part of Kendrick overcame the lead. While both teams made numerous Lumbering Here An average of two carloads of lum ber a day have been shipped from Kendrick since early in the spring Big auto trucks have been hauling the lumber from the Cedar Creek mills faster than cars could be obtain ed to handle it at this end of the line. Most of the lumber will have been hauled frorp the mills by the end of this week. There is an enormous pile near the Vollmer Clearwater Com pany's warehouses at the east end of town that is awaiting shipment. The auto trucks cleaned up the output of the Cedar Creek mills in a few weeks time. With teams and wagons it or dinarily took all summer to get the lumber to Kendrick.

Considerable publicity has been glv iii to the idea that there was no small po\ in tin; house, several daily papers publishing this as a fact. Dr. Kelly made the following affidavit before H. P.
