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
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.
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. !
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
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

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
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
Fix Harvest Wages

ager of the city free employment of

Kendrick 17, Troy 1
The game last Sunday afternoon on
the local ball grounds between Kond-] "
rick and Troy, was rather a one-sided 1 "f
affair and failed to arouse much en- \
thusiasm from the crowd. The at- j to
tendance was good but the game was i
a slow one and had no sensational I
features. sUy
In the seventh inning the score j
stood 5 to 1 in favor of the locals. At j
the end of the Inning it was 17 to 1. j
At on? time during this inning there
were three Kendrick runners on bases
and all three of them stole home.
Pete Harland and Hagan were the
Troy battery artists, while Walter
Thomas. R. Rensow and G. Carlson
made up the battery for Kendrick.
Thomas pitched three innings, one
run for Troy being made in the first
