Ralph B. Knepper, Publisher Entered as second class matter 1892 at Kendrick, Idaho, under the Act of Congress of March, 1879. Subscription $1.50 a year. United action on the part of the people of Potlatch ridge, the citizens of Kendrick and the Kendrick high way commissioners would very shortly result in accomplishing the building of a crushed rock highway from Southwick to Leland, Cam eron, Kendrick, Juilaetta and Lew iston. With the selling of the $400, 000 bond issue in Nez Perce county it ought to be comparatively easy to finance the read from the county line below Juliaetta to Lewiston. The building of this road wou'd be the biggest blessing that ever came to the Potlatch. Interest centers to a considerable degree as to the effect the low price of grain will have on land values. Foitunately land values have never been inflated in the Potlatch country. The land here is worth the highest price paid for it and will no doubt continue to increase in value. In the central states where prices went to $600 an acre for entire farms, they are already experiencing disaster, as the ex tremely low price of corn is grossly out of proportion to inflated land values. Nebraska City Press announces that it will be but a short time un til Santa Clause will be in their city to again till the stockings. "If he can fill 'em any better than some of those we've seen this summer he'll have'to go some," says the sporting editor of that sheet. Potlatchers are sitting on top of the world compared to farmers in the corn belt. Wheat prices are not what they ought to be, but not so bad £s 18 cent corn on $600 land. . We read the other day that there are two kinds of men—those who do what their wives tell them and those who never marry. One of the pleasant phases of the month of November is that it has a holiday even for the bankers According to a Boise dispatch sent out to the newspapers, the North Dakota recall election was a severe blow to the nonpartisans in this state, but they are beginning to re vive from the shock and are threat ening to tighten their lines and get into the fray next year. Someway have a feeling that nonpartisan ship will never again get as far in Idaho as it did a couple of years ago. And that wasn't so very far, when we come to think of it. —Star Mirror. Wnen it comes to cave women, the hand painted club will have to be awarded to a Dallas, Texas woman. Having killed her husband, she re marked peevishly to officers that "she didn't understand why she couldn't shoot her own husband if she wanted to." Yeggmen in the last 12 months burglarized 240 banks, saysthe Amer ican Bankers Association. Total loot was only $239,087.95, an average haul tor each "job" of $996. Usual ly it has to be divided among a gang. And for every 166 successful bank burglaries, 74 failed entirely. Does crime pay? Not even in dol lars and cents. The lowly bean will yet come into ils own in the Potlatch. Those who got a fair crop of beans in the Pot latch this fall will make more money than the wheat raisers. Most of the deer hunters who re turn from the woods this fall re fuse to be interviewed. They get back—and that's about all. A man who has much time to spend thinking of his troubles, ought to get busy. It must be a comfort to strangers to stop at the Kendrick garages. There isn't a grouch in eit 1 er gar age here, which is something out of the ordinary in that line of busi ness. Ihe boys here believe in treat ing people like real human beings and that's why they get a large a xnount of transient business. Sure They Know. There is a merchant in our town Who thinks he's wondrous wise; He scoffs at those who spend hard cash Their goods to advertise. He mocks the ad man to his face.' "You're talking through your hat, 'Cause everybodv everywhere Knows where my store is at!" Of course most people vaguely know That Jones conducts a store— Out of the beaten path where goes The cream of trade no more. But what he sells in his small place, What goods he has on shelf They cannot sav, because old Jones Keeps that all to himself; And that is why the blinded man Has troubles how, and woe, And^whv his sales are less tnan they were Some few short years ago. Sure everybody knows where Jones Sits glum in his easy chair. They also know where the grave yard is, But they are not flocking there! —Swiped.

A Timely Suggestion This is the season of the year when the prudent and careful house wife replenishes her supply of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. It-is almost certain to be needed before the winter is over and results are much more prompt and satisfactory when it is kept at hand and given as soon as the first indication of a cold appears and before it has become settled m the system. There is no danger in giving it to children as it contains no opium or other harm ful drug.—Adv. DAIRY HINTS FEW OPPOSE TB ERADICATION Cattle Dealers Who Do Not Favor Measures Are Influenced by Selfish Motives. (Prepared by the United States Department of Agriculture.) Only a few people are opposed to regulating traffic in tuberculous live stock, but their opposition is some times effective, and several cases of the kind have been traced by the United States Department of Agricul ture. However, the department be lieves that cattle dealers who do not favor tuberculosis eradication are in fluenced by selfish motives and do not represent the true spirit of live-stock owners and others interested in health ier and better domestic animals on American farms. Although many states have suitable laws to protect farmers and other live stock owners against traffic in tnherou Sjgg . I Dairy Herd Free of Tuberculosis. lous animals, the paractlce continues in some localities. Here is an in stance: In Massachusetts a purebred Holstein cow, valued at $100. was disposed of as a reactor ; but in stead of being slaughtered or segrega ted she was later sold to a state institution for $300. The herd at this Institution had previously been free of tuberculosis. It was being im proved by the purchase of new ani nmlif and every available precaution was taken to see that they were healthy. Recently this herd was re tested and three reactors were found, one of which was the cow in ques tion. All showed well-marked lesions of tuberculosis on post-mortem ex amination. There is no law or regulation In Massachusetts preventing the sale or requiring the segregation of reactors. A few cattle dealers led the opposi tion to a hill before the last general court providing for the control and sale of animals reacting to the tuber culin test. Owing to the importance of eradicating tuberculosis from live stock, tlie Department of Agriculture is furnishing to the public full in formation regarding the unture of the disease ami the way to get rid "f It. , I ACCREDITED-HERD CAMPAIGN Illustration of Manner In Which Own ers Are Given Protect on Against Tuberculosis.

LIVE s u ©one SHOOT SHEEP-KILLING DOGS No Consideration Should Be Given Such Animals and Should Be Destroyed at Once. Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture. The sheep-killing dog constitutes one of the greatest menaces to the sheep Industry. Such dogs not only kill , sheep, but keep out of the sheep busi ness men who are otherwise Inclined to go into it, say specialists of the United States Department of Agricul ture. Slieep-killlng dogs work both singly and in groups, hut usually in twos or threes. They do not limit their at tacks to the flocks of the immediate I vicinity in which they are kept, but travel for miles in all directions, spreading destruction in the flocks with which they comeTn contact. Be cause their work is so often done un der the cover of darkness it is almost Impossible to catch them in the act of worrying sheep. After a dog has once formed the habit of killing sheep it seemingly be comes a mania with him and he is sel dom if ever broken of it. lie not only A Highland Collie, One Year Old. destroys sheep himself but leads other dogs to the work. No consideration should be given such dogs ; and if ad ditional losses from this source are to be avoided, they should be killed as soon ns their habits are kn#\fn.

Long & Sons WORK HORSES REQUIRE CARE Animals That Have Had Their Teeth Looked After Are Usually Most Efficient. Horses working in the fields not only require good care and feed but they will eat better. Horses that have had their teeth looked after are usually more efficient workers than tl\ose which have not, especially horses with some age! Horses with poor teeth oannnf digest their feed efficiently, a little time si>eut in rasping the teeth down level Is often well spent. HIGH-PRODUCING DAIRY COWS To increase Productiveness of Herd It Is Necessary to Begin With Individuals. Increasing the productiveness of a dnlry herd through selection must be gin with the .individual as a unit. Cows with th-' liest performance rec unis are mated to a hull hacke I by n line of high-producing am - !>rs. Even this will not guarantee offspring eetual to their parents in productive ness, since the law of cHjju'o operates to make resells uncertain. However, the average will he as good ns tbelr parents' and some wii; exceed their dam's record. The best producers uro further I.red for further Improvement PUREBREDS REPLACE SCRUBS Nothing but Registered Sires Being Used at the Louisiana State Normal School.
