Section No. Two, with a scattering representation from Central Idaho, got In at 4:16, and at 6 o'clock the third section, carrying the artillery and South Idaho companies, pulled In. Over 200 Idahoans waited pa tiently at the atatlon all afternoon to give the boys a rousing reception, and I counted nearly 50 Bear Lake faces In the bunch. The Bear Lake boys, with the exception of John Thomaa Wamsley, are in Company B with Nampa. Wamaley Is In the machine gun company and was the only of our boys on the sick list. Unused to steady marching, his kies gave way at Boise and were an swollen so that he was unable to The boys were all looking fine—bronzed and their faces full of color, they looked like a mighty fit walk bunch to rub up against the "greas ers." They all had sore arms as they had been vaccinated in Boise and the second given them here. InnoculaDon waa Rev. F, M. Johnson Is the the First Sergent of Company B, and Hugh squad. The hoys like their officer# very well, but say that they are the strictest In the regiment. Sam Lewis' cherubic and rotund delivery boy, Eddie Kleber, waa scattering Joy germs promiscuously and keeping the hoys In good humor. Bob Beckwith hus grown a little tooth-brush mustache on his upper lip. He and "Little Kva" Sorenson are In the first squad with the six footers. McIntosh Is corporal of a Eddie O'Conner and "Te*" Smith are in McIntosh's squad. Bowen, Bill Harding, Don Had dock, Everett Herman, Elmo Brows, Ed Hansen.

However, a number of home girls were seen hanging around a short time before. The first section pulled out at 9 o clock and the other two sections followed soon after. Their destins tlon was supposed to be Nogales, J Arizona, one of the hottest places on our little planet. Most of the boys , had sore feet and they said th • heat j In Boise had been fierce, but Edd.e • Keiber said, "Fudge, wait till you K« to Mexico before you kick about I the heat—war is sure bell,' | John Barrett, manager of M«ss »tore at Logan, visited with his parents and old friends over Sun n * c « busin ..... ■ « . - John say. that he Is doing a at Logan, but Montpe ; "er still looks better to him than Logan.

If a candidate fails to ' lo t,,,H auditor cannot place ,lt8 ,,Bme upon the primary ballot Th «se facts should he home In mind l,y tho,e who have political bee# buzzing in their bonnets.

It is not known whether either one of the present hoard of commissioner, will be candidate« for re nomination Mr Howell Is serving his second term, and as the Democrats or not consider him one of the strongest men In that district, they will prob ably prevail upon him lo make the race for a third term We haven't heard of any pro# partly#» randldat« for rommlaalon«r in the aerond il tat rift, Republican either In the Democratic ranks Ezra Budge, the present Incumbent from tftat renomfnatlon. or district.

As usual, candidates for the leg Islnture are scarce and It Is probable will have to be "draft running for senator and rep resentatives on the Republican tlck The Democrat« 'will no doubt put Henator I'ugmlre's name on the ticket again and force him to run. as they did two years ago.
