Roads Into Kendrick KENDRICK GAZETTE Subscription Price $1.50 In Advance VOLUME 51. KENDRICK. LATAH COUNTY. IDAHO. FRIDAY. OCTOBER 2». 1921 NUMBER 4 5 Care of Winter Vegetables "As cold weather approaches we should plan to care tor the surplus vegetables still tound in the gar dens'', advises Prof. C. C. Vincent, * the horticultura' department, following the directions given below many kinds of vegetables may be kept during the entire win ter:" Cabbage can remain in the garden until hard freezing weather, after which it may be kept sound by several methods. One of the simplest is to dig a shallow trench in a well drained portion of the garden and plaee the cabbage roots up in it, and cover with straw and loose earth. For other vegetables such as potatoes, beets and turnips select a well drained location, make a shallow excavation, about six inches deep, line it with straw or similar material, and place the vegetables in a conical pile on the lining. Cover the vegetables with the lining material and carry it up several inches above the apex of the pile, having it extend thru the dirt covering for ventilation. The top needs to be covered with a piece of tin or board to keep out the rain and snow The pile should be cov ered with 2 or 3 inches of dirt, and the thickness increased with colder weather. These pits are rather inconvenient to get at in winter, and a good plan is to bury several kinds of veget ables together in about the propor tion they will be used on the table, and take them out at the same time. Another good plan with cabbage is to pull them roots and all, and set them side by side in a shallow trench of any width up to 8 or 10 feet, and as long as necessary. Cover the roots with earth. Erect ■a frame of rails, boards or poles about 2 teet high; place poles across, bank the sides with dirt and cover the top with straw or corn fodder. When the heads are cut, leave the roots and they will furnish early greens in the spring. turnips and beets may be left in the field until a freeze sufficient to make light ice, when they should toe taken up and stored in pits or cellars. The same is true of carrots and salsify. Parsnips can stay in the ground all winter and improve with freezing, the only trouble be ing to dig them when needed. It will be found advisable to dig a half peck or peck at a time during the winter. Later potatoes should be left in the ground until the tops die or are killed buy frost, and then dug be fore the ground frezse. they may be stored in pits like those describ ed for root vegetables, or in well ventilated cellars. Drudged a Lifetime For $18 A home convenience survey tne other day discovered a farm wife nearly 70 years of age, who had walked 5,710 miles to and from the household water supply. In the 50 years she had lived on the same farm she had traveled daily to the well, which was 140 feet from the house, and had carried near ly 2,000 tons of water. The survey showed, moreover, that the pipe could be extended from the well to the house and the pump moved in side the kitchen for $18. This happened, according to the official report, in a populous state east of the Mississippi and north of the Ohio river; but similar instances mav come to light anywhere unless certain parties invest promptly in better facilities for their house keepers.—Western Breeders Journal. Worsley Rented Ranch Dick Worsley, who arrived here a few weeks ago from Arcadia, Kansas, rented his Cedar Creek ranch near Crescent to Elmer Hudson and Mr. Quick, for a period of three years. Mr. Quick is from the Big Hole Basin country in Mon tana. Mr. Worsley returned to Kansas the first of the week where he will .continue to make his home.

Genesee News: Last Saturday afternoon between 1 and 2 o'clock, while Lou House and Chas. Oden borg were driving in Mr. House's car in the Blaine section, they hap pened to come up behind Joe Turt ling, who was inspecting culverts in that section. Mr. Turtling had stopped his car on the left-hand side of the road and stepped from the front door just as Mr. House came along, not knowing that Mr. House was following him, and stepped in front of the House car, which knocked him down and passed over him— "and never touched him". Mr. House was very much, alarm ed and stoped his car at once and went to Mr. Turtling, who had got ten up before Mr. House could get to him, to ascertain if he were bad ly injured, and was very much re lieved to find that no more serious damage had been done than that Mr. Turtling's face was somewhat skinned and bruised. No blame was laid upon Mr. House for the accident and Mr. Turtling is none the worse for his experience, although it might have been much worse. Juliaetta Record: It is expected that the Juliaetta cannery will re open soon for canning apples. Lloyd Anderson, who is getting the ma chinery in shape for the work, has no definite knowledge as to the opening date, and will not know until Mr. Mahon comes up from Lewiston. The plant will start as soon as things are ready. Troy News: J. B. Watson made an extended trip to coast points last ween and brought home evidence of the superior quality of the output of the Idaho Fire Brick company here in the form of orders which he captuted against the field of manu facturers by sheer superiority of the goods. These sales which will fill seven cars were made in Everett, Seattle, Tacoma, Centralia and Port land, and were all placed with com panies needing a fine quality tor use in fire boxes of boilers and other places where great heat is used. Mr. Watson was much elated over the orders, as it means steady work at the plant for some time. He stated that he found business on the upward trend all over th coast district and much optimism as to the future. Sheriff Arrests Wild Men ^^heriff John L. Woody, with his deputy, Charles Summerfield, arrest ed a "wild man" at the Jones place on Randall Flats, where he has been living in the woods for the past month.

Harpist and Pianiste Now Heading Own Concert Company Eleanor DeMarco, of DeMarco-Aistrup Entertainer«, Ha» Played Under Baton of Leading Symphony Conductor». » - Before engaging in lyeeutn work Miss Eleanor De Marco was a well known symphony soloist. Her success as harpist with some of the leading symphony orchestras of the country, led her to engage in the bigger field of concert work. She is today one of lyceum's best known and most talented artists. Associated with Miss De Marco Is Lowell Aistrup the well known young American violinist, who is rapidly coming into his own. Mr. Aistrup is a composer of considerable note. The Tie Marco-Aistrup Company features Alec Galloway One of the most largely attended funerals ever held in this commun ity was that of Alec Galloway last Sunday afternoon, on Big Bear ridge. Friends from all over the Potlatch country gathered to pay this last tribute to the memory uf their friend ana neighbor. The church service was conducted in a most impressive manner by Rev. Howard W. Mort, Methodist minister of Kendrick, after which the l.O.O.F. Lodge took charge of the burial service, internment being made in the Wild Rose cemetery. Alexander Galloway was born at Flat Greek, Missouri, in 1864. On July 4, 1888 he was married to Miss Kate Baker, then ot Springfield, Missouri. In 1899 they moved to laaho, locating on Big Bear ridge, where they lived happily until nis death. Mr. Galloway is survived by his wife, two daughters, Mary, and Mrs. Charles Bower; six sons, John, Hir am, Edward, Duey, Andrew and Henry; two sisters, Mrs. Jane Tomp son ot Springfield, Missouri and Mrs. Katherine King of Murtaugh, Idaho; tour brothers, Charles of Co burg, Montana; Nath of Lus An geles, California; Abe of Caw City, Oklahoma, and Jack of Springfield, Missouri. Mr. Galloway was one ot the prominent and successful farmers of the Potlatch country. He was a director in the Kendrick State Bank and was always active in community affairs. For years he was a member of the I. O. O. F_ lodge of Kendritk and was one of its most entnusiastic supporters. On October 4, 1921, Mr. and Mrs. Galloway departed for a visit to their old home in Springfield, Miss ouri. Shortly after their arnval there, Mr. Galloway was taken ill. Following an operation at a Spring field hospital, he passed away on Saturday, October 15, at 1 p. m., at the age of 57 years. Jap Didn't Stay Long Clark, who has been section boss here for some time, and wt1o is well liked by the people of this com munity, was "bumped" this week, ' His place was taken by a Japanese, who had seniority rights. A petition was circulated and liberally signed! i by the business men of Kendrick to i have a white man put in charge of! the section here. ' The Jap arrived on the afternoon; train Tuesday. He was allowed to isee the petition shortly after his arrival and, probably feeling that public sentiment was not very fav orable toward his staying, he left on the night train. Mr. Clark is still ! in charge of the section. Pig Clubs to Spokane The members of the Southwick and Leland pig clubs shipped 14 head of fine Duroe hogs to the Live stock Show in Spokane the first of the week. The five members of each club also went to Spokane where t h ey will be the guests of Armour & Go. tor the week. Last February, througn the efforts of County Agent Skuse, two pi g clubs were formed on Potlatch ridge, consisting of five members in each club. Each boy in his club received a registered Duroc Jersey brood sow from Armour & Co. The sows cost them nothing, but Armour & Co. reserved the right to select the first and third best pig from each litter. These pigs were to be exhibited at the Livestock Show in Spokane in competition tor prizes. After the show they become the property of Armour & Co. The brood sow and tne rest of the litter are tne property of the boy club member. Only 14 hogs were in tne shipment to Spokane, as some of the litters were small and Armour & Co. only took one pig from each of them. Several hogs in the bunch, at the age of six months, weighed 300 pounds. They were splendid types and spoke well of the care given them by the boys. lhe pig clubs have been highly succesful on Potlatch ridge, and will undoubtedly be the means ot stocking that community with a good type of Duroc nogs. The clubs have also stimulated a keen interest on the part of the boys, in the matter of raising better hogs. Circle Card Club One of the pleasant social functions of the season was the banquet and dance Tuesday evening, given by the Circle Card Club. The affair was held in the dining room of the Fraternal Temple, which was fes tive in decorations appropriate to Halloween. The appointments of a long table in the center of the room, were most pleasing, with cut flow ers and Halloween decorations in profusion. Places were laid for twentv-two and to these fortunate people, a delightful four course dinner was served by Miss Rita Leith ana Miss Beulah Long, after which dancing ana cards were in dulged in until a late hour. Guests of the club were Messrs, and Mesdames Deobald,' Hanson, Di I ley and Hill; members ot the club were present as follows: Messrs, and Mesdames Boyd, Rogers, Leith, Kite, McCrery, E. Long and Mac Pherson. Mr. and Mrs. S. P. Callison were Lewiston visitors fast Saturday. Will Arrest Hunters Tribune: The announcement is ex pected soon of the arrest of seven peisons who came, October 8, from the hot springs on the Loehsa river, j a tributary to the Middle Fork of the Clearwater, and came through Orofino, bringing seven Elks' heads, ! but with only about 250 pounds of meat. Deputy Game Warden H. L. Walrath, §f Clearwater county, stop ped the party and made an examina- 1 tion of the outfit. Afterwards, in company with L. G. Hornby, supervisor of the Clear-j water national forest, Warden Wal-| rath went into the Loehsa, where the game was killed, the trip being a difficult one, the place being known as the Jerry Johnson hot springs, a wonderful game country, and found that a great amount of game had been destroyed. This was in Idaho cuirnty, and, on Tuesday, accompanied by W'arden A. R. John son, of Lewiston, Warden Walrath went to Grangeville and swore out warrents for seven men, who are said to be residents of Latah county. Both of these officials express their appreciation of the excellent co operation accorded them by the forestry officials. Noted Cattle Killer Killed j I ! g a Lobo, the wolf, king of the Ari zona cow killers is. dead. After a long and successful career as a cattle bandit on the Arizona plains he has* bitten the dust at the com mand of a Government hunter, who brought him down with one snot from a rifle. And at that the rifle ! had the rear sight missing. For three years, according, to the report received by the Biological i Survey, United States Department j of Agriculture, Lobo has taken toll of purebred Hereford stock near Kingman, eluding all hunters and leading apparently a charmed life. Once in two weeks the old bandit of the plains went over his trail. On one ranch alone 50 fine white faced yearlings have fallen victim to his skill and cunning with in a year. Several other ranches tell similiar stories of Lobo's de predations. Perhaps it was the old wolf's be lief that his luck would last forever; perhaps it was that he was getting old; anyway, he got careless. Wary J of men, the big fellow didn't mind the near approach of an automobile containing the hunter— and fell at the first crack of* the rifle. He weighed 78 pounds after the skin fiom.the shoulders to the head was removed and was the largest wolf ever seen on the range. Cattle and rangers of Arizona are sleeping easier as a result of Lobo's death, and several thousand dollars in stock will be saved annually. to a in Will Run Special Train A special train will leave Moscow at 6:30 p. m., Wednesday, November 9, bound for Boise, to take loyal Idaho rooters to the Wyoming-Idaho football game to be played on Ar mistice day.

Tax Rolls Complete lhe arduous task of computing, extending, recapping, and abstract ing the taxes upon the face of the 1921 real property tax rolls has just been completed in the office of Homer E. Estes, county auditor, says the Star-Mirror. The tax rolls have been turned over to the office of the county treasurer ard tax col lector and the amount of all taxes extended upon said rolls are charg ed up to this official for tax collect ing. Tne total assessed v?luation upon the tax rolls, deducting the amount of all exemptions, is the sum of $20,438,779.00, and the tutal of all taxes to be collected total the sum ot $597,001.39. The distribu tion of this tax and the tunas to which it will be applied, and who will be finally responsible for the careful expenditure cf this tax money is shown below. With this idea in view the county auditor has worked out the following dis tribution showing to just what pro portion this amount is raised, and [expended, by the county and state, 'and the local taxing districts and municipalities: , State of Idaho (all de partments - - $llb,764.56 School Districts $148724.87 General School 85,842.91 Total for School Dist. $234,567.78 Highway and Road Districts $117,106.16 General Road 8,175.52 Total lor Highways $125,281.68 Cities and Villages 69,278.96 County Current Expense 51,0969.6 Rodent Control assessment 11.45 Grand total tax - $597,001.39 Both the onunty and state taxes are materially lower than the taxes for the same funds last year, and while the total tax to be collected frem the real property tax rolls of 1921 totals $27,042.45 more than the total amount collected from the 1920 Tax Rolls, this increase is all, (and mere) made up from the local taxing districts and from taxes that have been voted, or asses sed locally. For instance the special school district taxes are $25,599.14 more this year, the high way district taxes $3,375.77 more, and the City and Village special taxes $10,882.77 more. This tax roll work calls for care ful, and painstaking auaiting and accounting on the part of the county auditor's office, and those in charge of this work as same must be check ed, audited, and balanced, from every angle and phase of the work, have this year been balanced and finished ahead of schedule time, and before the time called for, or re quired by law. The office ot lone 8. Adair, tax collector will now be very busy for several weeks writing up tax notices and receipts, and preparing for the work of collecting this tax, pay ment of which may start witn the fourth Monday of November, or November 28, and can be paid up to and including the fourth Monday of December, or December 26 after which date taxes become delinquent. Hunters Empty Handed e members of the Bear ridge hunting party who returned last week from a trip to Goat Mountain, on the North Fork of the Clear water, failed to get any game. The party was made up ot Gabe Forest, Percy Ware, Harvey and Frank Fairfield, and John Stevens. They i were out about two weeks and while the trip was an enjoyable one, the entire absence of game proved a dis appointment, as the Goat Mountain country is considered a good game j country. The party lost two horses in the mountains. One of them injured ! his leg '*nd hail to be shot while the ■ other made a break for freedom and disappeared in the woods and was never found. The animal had a saddle on and part of the provisions and clothing of the party were tied to the saddle and lost with the horse.
