The recital given by some of Joseph
B. Tueller's pupils at the opera house
last Saturday night, was a decided
success. The pupils did splendid
work and showed excellent training.
They all played their selections from
memory, except the four hand pieces.
The concerto in G minor by Mendels
shon, played by Miss Lilias Crane
and accompanied by the string quar
>ette, was ably rendered. The mem
orizing and playing of such a com
position shows rare training. The
class of music was of a high standard
and was appreciated by the large
audience that greeted the pupils.

In stating bis reasons for request
ing the passage of this resolution,
Mr Glenn said that at recent meet
ing of the county attorneys, which
was held'in Boise, this matter was
gone into thoroughly and It was the
unanimous opinion of tlie attorneys
iresent that it was the intent of the
aw tiiat cities should receive 75 per
cent of the bridge tax. as well as tlie
road tax, collected within the cities,
since tlie law in question went into
effect in 1812
There is a Real Difference
Cream of tartar, derived from grapes,
is used in Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder
beca u se it is the best and most healthful in
gredient known for the purpose.
Phosphate and alum, wfrich are de
rived from mineral sources, are used in
some baking powders, instead of cream of
tartar, because they are cheaper.
If you have been induced to use baking
powders made from alum or phosphate,
use Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder in
stead. You will be pleased with the results
and the difference in the quality of the food.
