This leaves a splendid opening for a dentist who likes a small town and is willing to work up a good business. There is more' work in this territory than one man can take care of—if he gets the business. From a business stand point there are few better locations in tbis part of the country.

The two men, accompanied by their wives, were out for a pleasure trip Sunday, and ran into a bunch of the pheasants, which proved too much of a tempta tion. Meek was charged with vio lating the China pheasant law and Dallas, as deputy, for permitting him to do so.—Star-Mirror. Always Got a Good Seat ''Sir," said a poor woman to a min ister in the south who was by no means a popular preacher, "well do I like the day when you give us the sermon." "Indeed," said the minister, flushing with pleasure.

Big Hunt at Three Links Creek Party of Thtee Hunters Bring Back Limit of Elk From the Heart of the Bitterroot Mountains of, --- j Martin Thomas returned last Sun-: ; (j a y f rom hj s annual big hunt and, as usual, got his elk. He kept a diary which he has kindly allowed us to use for an account of the trip Three men made up the party; John Stevens and Jim Langdon of Juliaetta and Martin Thomas ot Kendrick. Mr. Langdon and Mr. Thomas are seasoned sour dough hunters with years of experience in the woods, back cf then*., but for Mr. Stevens, it was his first big hunt. The party left Kendrick Septem ber 24 with a hack and 7 pack horses. At the John Thomas place near Peck, thev picked up two more norses so that each of the party might have a saddle horse and two pack horses. The first stop was made at the John Thomas place. The second day camp was pitched 6 miles beyond Kamiah. That night a train stampeded 6 of the horses 2 nd it required the better part of the following day[to get]tliem together again. On the 27th it was decided to remain in camp as it was raining, which would make travel disagreeable. The next day packs were put on the horses and the journey resumed as far as the Ross Hoffman place at the forks of a L. of at at Hoff the Lochsa and Selway. Mr man is carrying the mail from | Kooskia tc Lowell. He is also quite , a hunter, so it is sate to say there were some great yarns told around the tire that night. On the 29th the party crossed the river, taking the trail over the divide between the Lochsa and Sel way. This was. a hard day as the trail was an up-hill climb for 12 miles over a very rough country. Camp was made beyond Cool Water Station. The next day found them at Three Links Greek, wnich is the place where A1 Roberts, Jim Lang don, trank Lyons and Wesley Thomas were snowed in two years ago and had to wade snow 3 teet deep for 13 days before reaching the river again. That was a harrow ing experience, but is another story. At Three Links creek it was decid j ed 'to stop for a while and explore in j the country, so on October 1, the opening of the big game season, the j party started south over the moun a f _ in < nr „ hnnt . I * * lay s hunt, i covered the same territory .while Martin Thomas went down the creek to hunt a more favorable - camping place on lower ground. I He found good camp and plenty of an | e lk sign but on his discovered found itbat the mighty bunters had bagged A coyote and deer were seen and the whistle of Ian elk heard, but no meat to show for the day. Next day twe hunters two elk, so it was unanimously de eided to leave well enough alone ' and establish camp permanently. On the 3rd all members of the party started after the elk meat, which is usaslly the hardest work ot a big hunt. After skinning the two elk and packing the meat, the hunters began the return journey and before thev reached camp, Martin Thomas shot his elk. The next few days were devoted to the work of salting and smoking I the meat. This required the build ing ot a smoke house, which was j soon accomplished. On the night of the 5th camp was raided by a party ot game wardens and two Moscow hunters, who were out tor a tour of inspection and in cidentally a hunting trip as a side issue. The party was cobiposed ot the U. S. Deputy Game Warden of New York, the state game warden ot Kansas, State Game Warden Jones of Idaho, Deputy State Game Warden Kjort of Kooskia; C. J. Hugo and Mr. Renfrew ot Moscow | round over the crags and the Devil's , Ladder. and a Mr. Wagner, who was horse wrangler and cook. The party had a movie camera and took a number of reels of the pack train, which consisted of 20 horses and mules, as it wag climoing over the rough and lugged trail which wound a 12 of of Or. the 6th Messrs. Langdon and Stevens went goat hunting but had no luck. On the following day the creek was whipped for trout, but no tish. On the 8tb the goat hunters again tried their luck but didn't get their goat. That evening three Indians, Tom Hill and his son-in law, both of Kooskia, and Henry Elk of Lapwai, made camp across the creek. Bhortly after their ar rival thev shot a black bear in plain sight of the camp. On the 9th Jim went after his goat, Martin remained to smoke meat and John stayed in camp, slightly under the weather. On the 10th packs were put on and the pack train neaded for home. Louse Lake was reached after 4J houis hard travel. A stop was made for a day to hunt deer, but it prov ed a fruitless hunt. The following day Hoffman's place was reached, then to Kooskia on the 13th, where the meat was sent home by express, and to Kamiah that evening where the hack was made ready and the journey resumed the next morning, the arrival home being on the 15th. Mr. Thomas, who knows the mountains of the upper Clearwater country probably as well as any man in the state, says that the, country covered by this trip is the Money in Clover Seed de the the the E. C. Gertje, of Southwick, has demontsrated over a period of years that clover seed can be profitably grown In the Potlatch. He has been producing seed for market for a good many years and has found that it pays him a very good profit. This year from 43 acres he threshed an average of 115 pounds to the acre. This was a light crop as his average is about 300 pounds. A sack weighs about 130 pounds and he sold his surplus seed to Washburn & Wilson at Moscow for $23.50 per sack, in the dirt. It is a very encouraging sympton that this summer he sold a large amount of seed to h's neighbors, so It is safe to say that the clover acreage around Southwick will be largely increased next year. Mr. Gertje harvests three crops of seed from a field and then 1 plow« it up, as the ground gets too foul if left to the same crop longer than that length of time. The land after a rest of several years and. having a renewed stock of humus, is In condi tion to raise splendid grain crops. The clover straw is good winter feed for stock and is a valuable by product. Mr. Gertje says that because of the fact for three successive crops it Is not necessary to plow or seed the ground, the amount received for a clover seed crop represents prac tically clear profit, after deducting the cost of harvesting and threshing. He has been at the business for the past seven years and after trying out this crop over that period of time, he is in a position to know that it can I be made to pay. Ernest Schmidt, of Leland, seeded 24 acres to clover several years ago. Last year he got 55 sacks, and this year 53 sacks from the patch. This year he cleared $960 on the one crop. The railroad strike hampered lumber shipments but still the in dustry makes a record movement of products. In April, 1922, building contracts awarded in the 27 Northeastern states reached the unprecedented sum of $353,192,000. The April record was 20% higher than that of the pre ceding month, and 60% ahead of was j April. 1921 | Contracts for first four months of was year amounted to slightly less than a billion dojlars. j May an< ^ June of this year carried in- building boom even higher, and side ^ J°„^ he .,t x ^ ec ! ation that , t , he ot of J. for 1922 will be far greater than that of any other year. About 40% of all building is for residental purposes. About 15% is for business, and about 8% is for In dustrial purposes. Lumber is the great American [building material for the man of moderate means and is Indispensable had j in our great industrial building pro srams which require lumber in mak ing f orms f° r concrete, etc. Helton Has Fox Farm Mr. and Mrs. Walker Helton, and Mrs. Helton's mother, Mrs. Zigler, of the Potlatch ridge near Juliaetta, were visitors here this week says the Lewiston Tribune. They have sold their ranch in that section and are preparing to start a fox farm at Pierce City. The arrangements for the project, to be located on the farm of Frank Eller, have been made, and Mr. Helton will be caretaker. It is said that enough stock has been taken to launch the work in good style, and j that they 8tart wlth ^out nine or ten pa j r t he -va.Iua.l>le animals, The location of the farm adjoining Pierce City is considered to be ideal, a line hill being on the farm and the 1,eBt of spring water j r0UKhes t that he has ever seen in ttie Bit err00 t Mountains.

Albright is a candidate for sheriff of Nez Perce county on the Progressive ticket. Mr. Albright made this fact known last week after his friends had pursuaded him to make the race against the republican and democratic nominees. Mr. Al bright is an energetic and enter prising citizen and no doubt would fill the position most satisfactory If elected. He is well known over Nez Perce county and the prospects are good that he will have liberal sup port from the voters in hts candidacy. —Juliaetta Record.

They are saddling their loss onto the public in the shape of enormously Increased prices of. coal, and are profiteering Ip a con scienceless and shameless manner.

The highway board, at a special meeting held last Monday, cleaned up some matters regarding the right-of-way east of Deary, which gives them an opportunity to begin work. It is the intention of the board to complete the road from Hel mer to Deary this fall. Mrs. Olive St. Michell, whose opposition to the right-of-way across her farm, has been the source of considerable dis cussion, met with the board Monday and closed up a compromise arrange ment. She accepted $200 as liquidated damages and signed a right-of-way deed. This week the Commissioners made some improvements on the Pine Creek road near the Harten place, using the tractor and grader. The work had been left uncom pleted last spring.—Deary Press. ^George Moody of Potlatch has been appointed deputy in the Latah county sheriff's office by John L.
