Roads Into Kendrick KENDRICK GAZETTE Subscription Price $1.50 In Advance VOLUME 31. KENDRICK. LATAH COUNTY. IDAHO. FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 30. 1921 NUMBER 39 Over The County Juliaetta Record: W. H. Mahon is here this week making preparations to start the canning plant about the first of the week. There has been a little delay in starting the plant owing to pears coming on a little later than was expected. However, they are about ready and Mr. Mahon expects to get the work started. He expects to can some apples and a lew prunes in addition to pears and will employ about 20 people if he can get them. Troy News: The taxes for this municipality are the highest of any in Latah county this year, with Bovill, Deary and Moscow following in the order named. Juliaetta has the lowest assessment. The matter of interest, however, is the dis position of the money. The total tax per $100 for Trov is $6.48, and $3.50 of this is for village expenses, $1.72 for school tax, 64 cents for highway tax, 57 cent» for state and 25 cents for county taxes. The municipal expense item is the high est of any town in'the county, while Moscow, Genesee, Kendrick and Deary have a higher item of school tax. The highway tax for this village is among the lowest in the countv. Deary Press: A. Wilmot of Kend rick proprietor of the lines which supply electric enegy to the towns of Troy, Kendrick and Juliaetta, was in Deary, Wednesday, looking over the town with the view of lay ing before the citizens a proposition to run his light and power wires a from Trov, a distance of 13 miles, I to this place. He was favorably impressed with the prospect for business here and outlined his proposition to the village council at an informal meeting called for the purpose. Within a few days it is expected that the matter will nave assumed tangible shape, and that some defin ite statement concerning it can be made. Mr. Wilmot's activities in the towns mentioned have been successful. He is rendering good service at a very reasonable rate. Genesee News: There is still much agitation going on for an "All Idaho" road from Genesee to Lewis ton which will eliminate the half mile section over in Washington. This is as it should be. It the road is built it should be built within the state. Washington has no in terest in this small piece of road and it is hardly probable that they will ever build it regardless of the fact that repeated promises to do so have been made. An ail Idaho road have would guarantee a great deal more travel over the north and south road throuh Genesee, Moscow and on to the north, thence to Spokane. It would give the tourist much finer scenery and would save them sev eral miles travel — consequently much tune and gas. The ruad, as proposed, can very easily be built, and while it would cost a few dollars more, the fact that the road is to be built in Idaho makes it worth the price —especial ly since the Washington people do not seem to care whether the Idaho travelers come their way or not. Let's all boost for an "All Idaho" road— north and south—and there by allow Idaho travelers to travel in a state that reallv appreciates them and wants them. Let's go! Since the above was put in type word has been received from Lewis ton to the effect that they were ready to begin work on putting the "missing link" in a passable con dition for this winter by putting some 500 vards of rock on it and that Genesee and Rimrock districts are asked to raise $400 as their share of the expense. < Philips-Baker Mr. J. M. Baker of Cottonwood formerly of Kendrick and Miss Venia Philips were married in Lew iston, Wednesday, October 28. They came to Kendrick to visit with Mr. and Mrs. Henry Baker, who are now 'Visiting at the Fred Crocker home. X A Bad Accident Little Eveiyti Housley, 4-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Housely of this place, narrowly escaped death Wednesday afternoon when she was struck by a Ford car driven by A. E. Gisness of Spok'ane. As it was, she suffered a broken leg just above the ankle, was badly bruised and had four teeth knocked out. The accident was unavoidable and no blame whatever was attach^ ed to the driver of the car.(The story of the accident follows: Evelyn was standing on the run ning board of Elmer Bechtol's car, which was parked near the curb in front of his residence. A puppy had crawled into the seat cf the car and she was busily engaged playing with him. Suddenly she jumped for the running board and started to run across the street, passing just in front of the Ford car which was being driven at a very moderate speed. She had al most passed the car when the left fender struck her shoulder and knocked her down. Mr. Bechtol and Otto Schupfer saw it happen but it was over before anything could possibly have been done to prevent it. It is not Known wheth er she was run over by a wheel of the car or not, but the fact that one leg was broken, would indicate that a wheel passed over her. Tne sun was shining on the wind shield of the ear so that the driver didn't see the little girl until after the car struck her Mr. Bechtol and Mr. Schupfer both stated that the I car was not going over ten or as is be in in the so road twelve mi les an hour when the ac cident happened. Evelyn was rushed to Dr. Kelley's office where she was given first aid. Dr, Carsow of Lewiston was also called on the case, making the trip from Lewiston in an hour and ten minutes. While tne danger is probably not entirely passed, the latest reports from the little girl's condition are to the effect that she is getting alung very nicely and if no com plications set in she will recover. She is now at the home of Dr. Kelley, wnere she is under the care of Mrs. Kelley, a trained nurse. Injured in Runaway Accident Mrs. O. C. Aiken was quite ser iously injured last Sunday morning while driving up to the gate of her home with a horse and buggy. As she started to get out of the buggy the horse whirled, cramping the wheels and tipping the buggy over. Mrs. Aiken was thrown out and bad Mrs. Aiken was thrown out and bad ly shaken up and bruised. It will probably require considerable time for her to recover from her in juries. Light in The Wilderness A note of optimism is sounded by a prominent bulletin service in a recent announcement. The bulletin said: A gentleman in the inner councils of the nation's financial direction says to us substantially: "We warned the optimists a year ago of what was coming and they would not listen. Any student of our announcements can see that we are warning the pessimists now. "Do not be blind to the fact that credit could be extended twenty billions without bringing the legal reserve to the danger point. "Remember that there is under production in almost every basic commodity the world over. "Government may direct, but can not control economic law. and there is approaching a conjunction of fac tors the result of which must be a gradual rising price scale and a re vival of markets." --I The sale of logging horses at Camp 6 last week, attracted many prospective purchasers, says the Deary Press. George Drury bought three head and others one to two animals each. The big horses were sold at $50 each— you took your choice and paid your money. in a al to of the or Bought Kendrick Residence X T---' E. A. Deobald purchased the El mer Bechtol residence this week.

Mr. and Mrs. Bechtol expect to improve the place to which they are moving. The bungalow is one which they built several years ago and will make a desirable home. Shipping Prunes C. G. Compton has this week been shipping prunes in carload lots to Montana points. He shipped the second car Tuesday. Mr. Compton says that with favorable weather conditions he will probably ship from five to seven carloads from this territory. The prunes are being "shuffle packed" in 18 pound boxes. They bring the producer about 30 cents a box. Mr. Compton stated the first of the week that the crop this year is of exceptionally good quality as there is practically no scale or scab The greatest difficulty has been to get pickers. Since writing the above a heavy wind storm "picked" the prunes. They now form a purple carpet un der the trees in the orchards and are fit only for drving. ac aid. also trip ten not are Dr. care X Bought Cedar Creek Farm ser W. H.

Order Your Picric Acid County Agent Skuse of Nez Perce County, has charge of the assembing ot orders for a possible carload ship ment of picric acid t< Lewiston, says the Tribune. This picric acid is a salvaged war material and has been turned over by the war de partment to the department of agri culture. The picric acid is given away, to stimulate interest in land clearing, the only cost to the farm er being that for cartridging, pack ing and shipping. Noonefaimer can secure more than 1.000 pounds. The need for this explosive in this part ot north Idaho is comparative Iv limited, so it is necessary to pool orders coming from farmers living in the southern part of Latah, Nez Perce, Clearwater, Lewis and Idano counties, with the idea of getting a total supply ot 24,000 pounds, which would be a minimum carload, The supply is located in Wiscon sin and New Mexico, and as there is . _ u , . .. .. „ county. The final cost ot the ex are 12,5011,000 pounds in.all, it is expected that it will soon all be taken and no more will beavailable. As near as it is possible to esti mate, it will cost a little more than halt as much laid down here as the ordinary powder. The plan is that each prospective purchaser will de posit with Mr. Skuse at the rate ot 6 cents a pound, which is the cost of cartridging and packing, up to an amount not exceeding 1,000 pounds. If it is possible to secure enough orders to make at least 2,000 pounds, a carload will be ship ped to Lewiston and reshipped by local freight to the purchasers. If not enough orders are secured, the deposits will be returned. The first carload to come to the northwest has recently arrived in Sandpoint; the second carload went I to the Potlatch country in Latah a P. lni ~ L. P. W. & plosive laid down at Sandpoint wa3 $12.15 per box ot 124 pounds, gross weight, so it is expected that the costs would be a little greater here. County Agent U. S. Fletcher of Latah county, County Agent C. H. Behkne of Lewis county, County Agent R. M. Pavey of Idaho county and C. H. Ede of the bank of Oro '. j fino. are co-operating in the assembl of orders for their respective counties, and so far as possi le or ders should be handled through them. Those who find it incon venient to deal through these agen cies can send their orders direct to Agent W. VV. Skuse at Lewiston. A Great Liquidator You must hand it to the great 1 American dairy cow when it comes to keeping a community in a liquid condition. She is a regular Wall Sheet as a wealth producer and she : never needs any deflation and when she endorses a farmers note it is universally regarded as good P a P er - She is one grand little liquidator. Go out among Go out among the country banks where the dairy cow reigns supreme and you will not hear of "frozen credits." This is an industry with a pro duction around a billion dollars a year. Can you grasp it? The pro duction ot milk in this country is «bout ten billion gallons, ot.ebil lion and a balf P° unda üt butt f and ei * ht hundred milllon P° unds °* cheese. Some figures, but then .the prodcution does not equal the j demand. The University ot Missouri prov ed that, in a single season, one ot its cows produced food equivalent to that in the carcasses of tour 1250 P™" d äteers - " h,le these 3teers could furnish this food out once, the I cow would be ready the next season to duplicate her teat or better it.
