Troy News: A feature of the par ade which formed to meet Com mander Leeper on his arrival from Lewiston, was three generations of fighting men. In the lead was Sam uel Weaver, veteran of the civil war, where he participated in 54 battles. He carried the big flag and by his side were others of the Grand Army men. Among those marcning. in civilian dress, were veterans of the Spanish-American war, citizens now, but none the less men ot service, and the young men of the Legion, who are destined to earry on the work soon to be laid down by the men of the Grand Armv. A goodly number of citizens and a large dele gation of school students also were in line and greeted the visiter at the station when he arrived, with schoul yells. Star-Mirroi: Alleging negligence and unskillfulness suit was brought Saturday in the district court a gainst Dr. F. C. Faust of Deary by Roaney P. Drury, a minor, and his father George E. Drury as guardian, in which the plaintiff seeks recovery of $26,300. Rodney Drury who is 18 years of age claims that the al leged malpractice of Dr. Faust necessitated the amputation of his left leg at a point six inches below the hip joint. As Drury is a minor a petition was filed and granted by Judge E. C. Steele, appointing the fathre. Geo. E. Drurv, guardian for the purpose of bringing the action. On March 2, 1921, young Drury injured his lefl foot wnen a log fell upon it according to the complaint. The complaint alleges that: "The defendant so negligently and unskillfully conducted himself in reducing the fracture of the broken bones, and in treating or at tempting to treat the injury to plaintiff's foo\ as to bring on an excessive inflammation and necrosis of the flesh of the left toot and leg of Kodnev P. Drury to such an ex tent that it became and was neces sary, to have his left leg amputated at a point six inches below the hip." The complaint further alleges that the plaintiff has suffered great physical pain and mental anguish and that he has expended $300 in hospital fees. In seeking damages of $26,300 the complaint sets out that Drury was a woodsman capable of earning $150 a month, that his earning power now will not exceed $50 a month, and tnat his life expectancy is 43 years On a basis of $100 a month for 43 years the plaintiff is entitled to tne aggregate amount of $25,000, $1,000 lor pair, and suffering, and $300 hos pital fees or a total award of $26, 300, accoridng to the complaint. Farnk L. Moore of Moscow is at torney fur the plaintiff. Deary Press: The creamery meet ing Held here Saturday had encour aging results, according to the shareholders with whom we have conversed. A plan is being worked out whereby the sale of additional stock can be made to care for pres ent financial needs and it is hoped that the plant can soon be started again. It is little short ot shameful that in a community such as this, a well appointed creamery plant like the one here cannot be kept running the year round. Plants in other towns are operating apparently at a protit, with market conditions but little if any different from ours. The main essential, of course, is cream. No matter how well equip-j ped a creamery may be it cannot Destroy Predatory Animals y 'According to information sent out by the state department of agri culture, Idaho has paid to the fed eral government during the past fiscal year, through the Bureau of Internal Revenue, the sum of $4, 963,000. It is estimated that the war tax paid by the government on carload shipments of. farm pro ducts from this state will aggregate not' less than $250,000. The state has also paid the ferle rat government for tne use of our forest reserve for the past year, half a mll<>n ^dol lars. The total of these three pay ments being $5,713,000. In giving these estimates the state department ot agriculture mentions that a part of these large sums is used to maintain 400 men who de vote their, time to exterminating predatory animals. A force of these hunters is kept constantly in the field for tne purpose of wiping out these varmints. The bureau ot biological survey states that the average destruction by predatory animals is estimated to be for each' wolf and mountain lion, $1,000 worth ot stock annually, eacn covote'and bobcat, $50 worth; and each stock-killing bear, $500 worth. The bureau also gives in stances where "one wolf took a toll of nearly $3,000 worth of cattle in one year" and again 2 ' wolves killed 72 sheep," but the bureau dfd not tell just how they arrived at these facts.# The bureau goes on to report that during the past five years the fed eral government estimates the cost of this five year campaign at six million dollars. From the stand point of the biological survey they would credit on this amount the proceeds for the furs taken, which is set,down at $240,423.63. Accord ing to these general estimates it has cost the federal government $46.00 tor each animal killed. During the same period under the bounty system at a cost of some thing less than $3.00 per head, a total of 113,518 animals have been destroyed in the state. Would You Believe It? Seven years ago an Iowa farmer hung up his vest on a fence in the barnyard. A calf chewed up a pocket of the garment in which was a gold watch. Last week the animal, a staid old milch cow, was butchered for beef, and the timepiece was found in such position between the lungs of the cow that the respiration—-the clos ing in and filling of the lungs -kept the stem-winder wound up, and the watch had lost four minutes in seven years.—Swiped. Green-Fox Mrs. Josie Green was married last Thursday afternoon to Frank Fox of Wenatchee, Wash. The wedding took place at Moscow. Mr. and Mrs. Fox expect to make their home near Wenatchee, where Mr. Fox owns an orchard tract. manufacture butter out of anything but cream. The production of cream brings the farmer cash twice a month, which in these credit days and a loss in other lints of farming, is pretty handy. This creamery ought to be work ing, and if it is to succeed it must have the support of the farmers. If it fails for lack of support and goes out of business for tnat reason, it will become nothing more than an embarrasing reminder of the mis taken enthusiasm of its promoters. We hope the day will soon come when every farm in this community will have its silo and its herd of dairy cows and be sending its quota of cream to the creamery. This would beat owning stock in the concern and then not helping to furnish the material it must have to work on. Then if the plant does not run at ja profit, or at least pay its way, the cause will be some other besides the lack of raw material. u Or John B.

Idaho Sheep to Chicago The University of Idaho college of agriculture nas entered the grand champion yearling Southdown weth er and the grand champion steer, "Idaho Sensation," a purebred Here ford, in the International Livestock show at Chicago, November 26 to December 3, according to announce ment Monday by C. W. Hickman, protessor ot animal husbandry. The Idaho wether was grand champion at the Western Royal Livestock show at Spokane and also won the grand championship at the Pacific Inter national Livestock show at Port land. "Idaho Sensation" won the grand championships at both the Portland and the Spokane shows. Another wether of the university farm, win ner of the reserve grand champion ships at both shows or next to the Idaho grand champion wether, is al so to be entered in the Chicago show. Fred Bayliss, university beef cattle herdsman, has gone back with the steer which was shipped from Portland following the close of the Pacific International show. "Idaho Sensation" was shipped back to Chicago through the courtesy of Congdon and Battles of Yakima, Wash., in a carload of exhibition stock owned by the Yakima firm. Sam Stoddard, university shep herd will be in charge of the Idaho wethers. He will give an ex hibition at the Chicago show with his three fine Scotch sheep dogs. Last year he gave an exhibition and officials of the Chicago show, the largest and most important live stock show in the United States, have made plans for an exhibition this year. " We look to 'Idaho Sensation' and tne Idaho wethers to do something back at Chicago or they would not have been sent," said Professor Hickman. "The animals were the best of the Western Royal and Pacific International shows and we believe that their entrance at the Chicago show will be well worth while." Beef cattle of the university's purebred herd are being taken care of in the barns at the Latah county, fairgrounds while other stock is being taken care of in enclosures on the univeristy farm, accoiding to Professor Hickman. The temporary winter quarters will be maintained until spring or until a new beef cattle barn is constructed. The cattle were bumed out of their tegular quarters by the destruction by fire of the beef cattle ham. "Investiagtion shows that the uni versity lost only one animal as a result of the fire," said Professor Hickman. "This animal was an aged bull which broke wav after being lead to safety and rushed back into the flames. The entire 36 head of purebred cattle would have been lost had it not been lor the tine work of Harry Morgan." —Star Mirror. K Rev. Mort Will Leave Rev. Howard W. Mort was tend ered the pastorate ot the First Methodist Church at Oakesdale, Wash., last week by the district superintendent. The offer was ac cepted by Mr. Mort, as he believed the new position presented greater possibilities for advancement both for himself and his work. The offer of the Oakesdale church came to Mr. Mort entirely unsolicited and may be taken as a compliment for the splendid work he has done here during the past year. Mr. Mort expects to leave R'ênïï" rick about the middle of next week to take up the work in his newffield. Mrs. Mort will probably remain at least until after the holidays, to finish her term as teacher of the 7th and 8th grades in the local schools. Mr. and Mrs. Mort have made a host of warm friends in Kendrick during their short stay here, and while they will be extremely sorry to see them leave Kendrick, their friendship and best wishes will fol low them in their work at Oakes dale.
