Deary Press: One of our chief reasons for advocating construction of the state highway this fall is to give men work during the fall and winter. The road is going to be built sooner or later—why not go at it now and help the wage-earners out. If all conditions are favor able as to cost ot materials and labor, why put it off? We have the machinery and equipment. We suggest that the board call a mass meeting and discuss the matter with the tax-payers. Troy News: Dr. A. A. Otteraaen and wife, of Spokane, were here on Tuesday and Wednesday looking over the situation with the view of locating when Dr. Stockslager leaves for his new location in Lew iston.

Star-Mirror: An interesting mem ento of the Chief Joseph and Nez Perce Indian war was revealed on the lot at 820 East B. street., sold some time ago by C. L. Tompson to E. McMartm, when contractor A. G. Giese in digging the foundation for a modern bungalow came upon the remains of a stockade. The stumps were just below the depth of the foundation and looked as fresh as when first placed by the sturdy white settlers. The line ot the stockade agreed with the lines established in that section of Moscow as sites where the defenders put up a rugged de fense to the onslaughts of the fol lowers of the old Indian chief. Some few years ago when excavat ing was proceeding opposite to the site of the bungalow, and across the road, remains of a stockade were dicsovered by contractor Giese. There was also a well uncovered showing thaï the water was handy for the defenders. The stumps were left as they would not disturb the work of pro gress. The Indian war occurred in 1877. The outline of a trench was also visible. Potlatch Barn Burned The barn and machine shed on the Archie Mav farm on Potlatch ridge was totally destroyed .by fire Monday afternoon.

Compton, by the use of a pair of automobile pliers removed several thousand porcupine quills, more or less. The operation was entirely successful and the dog is able to be up and around. Pure Grit In the street of Life, walking in the darkness of the shadow,, hungry old Satan was out hunting with his dogs, the little imps of human weak ness. A man came walking through Life's street. Satan said to the little devil with a bitter face: "Go; get him for me.'' Quickly the imp crossed the street silently and lightly hopped to the man's shoulder. Close in his ear he whispered: "You are discouraged." "No," said the man, "I am not discouraged." "You are discouraged." The man replied this time, "I do not think I am." Louder and more decidedly the tell vou, The man dropped his head and replied, "Well, I suppose I am." The imp hopped back to Satan, and said proudly, "I got him! he is dis couraged." Another man passed. Again old Satan said: "Get him for me." The proud little demon of dis couragement repeated his tactics. The first time that he said: "You are discouraged," the man replied emphatically, "No!" The second time, the man replied, "I tell you I am not discouraged." The third time, he said: "I am not discouraged. You lie.!" The man walked down the street hu head up, going toward the light. The imp of discouragement re turned to his master, crestfallen. "I couldn't get him. Three times I told him he was discouraged. The third time he called me a liar, and that discouraged me."— Chicago Examiner. Wheat Growers Meet ! Big Bear Ridge 'Mr. and Mrs. A.

Farmers Fatten Poultry Many farmers are learning that jt pays to fatten poultry for market, J us f as >t pays to finish hogs and cattle. Heavy feeding and close confinement for 2 or 3 weeks adds finish and weight, thereby increas ing pi ice per pound and number of pounds. An excellent fattening ration consists of 2 parts finely ground corn, 2 parts shorts, moist ened with buttermilk or sour milk to a motar-like consistency. Birds will eat it fed 3 times daily.

X Infantile Paralysis department of public welfare of the state of Idano has issued a state ment and warning to the public, calling attention, among otner Owing to the ptevalenee of infan tile paralysis in the northwest states, especially in the state of Washington, where the disease has been especially fatal, or has left the patient permanently disabled, the things, to the fact that a large num ber of cases have been reported in this state, principally in the north ern party The statement follows: At present very Iittle is known of the causative agent, but it is sup posed to be due to some nucro organism, causing a general infec tion first, later on localizing in the spinal cord where it attacks the nerve roots, causing paralysis of the muscles supplied by these nerves, It is a well known tact that it is transmitted from one person to an other, but the manner of transmis sion is not known. The disease starts in the same manner as any fever condition, may stimulate ordinary intestinal mfec i tion which lasts for a day or two, or perhaps only a few very short hours, followed by paralysis, or loss sensa tion, in some part of the body. This may partly clear up and in some instances it clears up~ entirely. Other cases result in paralysis of one or more groups of muscles for life. If there is a paralysis of the respiratory center,* death results, The following precaution should be taken in all cases of children showing symptoms of fever diseases: Hrst. The sick child should be w of charge Lndr K e - put to bed in a quiet darkened room and a physician called to diagnose the case. In the mean time the bowels should be cleaned out with a mild cathartic, the throat gargled with a warm salt water solution of one-half teaspoonful of ordinary table salt to a glass of hot water. This should be done twice a day. All excretions from the body should be disintected or burned especially nandkerchiefs. The patient should be kept as quiet as possible in order to pro tect the neivous system from be coming a focus of the infection. If tne case is diagnosed as "Infantile Paralysis,'' Rosenow's sprum, which is obtained from the Mayo Clinic, may be used at this time. It must be used before the paralysis has developed and even when thus used, too much must not be expected of it, as its value has not been definite ly determined, as yet. This may be obtained from the Department of Public Welfare, Boise, Idaho, Until the cold weather definitely se t s In t b e well children should be kept out of doors . but away Uom public gatherings. Special atten tion should be paid to their bowels and to their foods. The mouth and throat, especially the teeth and ton sjls> should be we || taken care of. a little precaution taken at this time may prevent serious illness or death of your child, Help the health authorities in preventing this disease from be coming epidemic in the state of i da ho. / Southwick News XBorn to Mr. and Mrs. Howard Southwick, Saturday, September a ^oy.
