Early Saturday morning the last of three special trains bearing the mem bers and officers of the Second Idaho, were entrained and pulled out for NogaleB, Arizona, where they will be kept in a concentration camp until ordred to the Mexican border or elsewhere. The entraining of the troops at the Entraining the Troops railroad station in Boise on Friday night was the scene of the greatest gathering ever seen in Idaho. The streets for blocks around the station had been jammed with people from a somewhat earlier hour In the even lng. People had come in numbers from as far as Twin Falls and Welser while the population of the Boise valley were apparently all there. It had been expected that the troops would all be entrained by nine o'clock that night. As a matter of fact It was midnight bfore the first battallion pulled out, and the last train did not leave until nearly two o'clock in the morning. Lunclies for tlie Soldiers The providing of lunch baskets for the officers and men of the regiment was taken in charge of by the Y. W. C. A., although the lunches them selves were not provided by the so ciety. As a matter of fact, the lunches came from practically all im aginable sources. Town women and country women were joined in this work of love, and the baskets of food and delicacies came from the rich and poor alike. Many of the lunch baskets, of which there were over 1300, contained cigars and- cigar- ; ettes. The tobacconists of the city on Friday afternoon gathered pack ing cases filled with boxes of cigars, pipes and smoking tobacco, cigar ettes and all the other necessities of the tobaso user, to the train and loadefl into the bag gage cars. ■hich were sent Guard Only Half Paid On the last day of ther stay, the Second Idaho was paid half of the amount due from the state, whole payroll amounted to some thing like $11,500. ered that only $12,000 remained in the state military fund, and rather than disburse the full amount and leave the adjutant general's office to go ahead on credit for the next s:x months, it was decided to pay the boys only half their pay. The It was discov Hopes were held out that the money might be secured from some source the: unknown with which to pay the bal once without waiting for the coming session of the legislature to make an apprropriation. Apparently no one had thought of trying to find the money to finance the adjutant gen eral's office from other sources and ; thus having funds to pay the state's debt to its departing soldiers, Time for Filing Candidacies The time for filing candidacies to he voted on at the primaries In Sep tember began on July 6 and will be completed on August 5 next. #an didacies so far declared are not num erous.

Value of Punctuality. The Woman's World appeals to women generally to follow the ex ample of business women and cultivate the virtue of punctuality. "One of the lessons " it says, "the business and working woman has learned is to Ot prompt. Managers of large establish nients tell us that as a rule wotuei. are more punctual than men. There has been a notable improvement in the punctuality of the home, due mainly to the influence of modern business." Cause for Optimism. When a man yields to the pleading of his v.-ife ami goes to church for the first time in thirty years, he swells up and talks about it as though he had a ticket on the New Jerusalem Limited straight to heaven.

Ketchikan, Alaska, lies right on the water. The mountains, says the Chris tian Herald, rise in green walls be hind it. Their tops are sprinkled with mow, and great rocks show out through the evergreen trees that cover their sides. The houses are built on the rocks. The harbor is in the shape of a half ■noon protected by islands. It has no beach to speak of and the business part of the town rests upon piles. The streets are planked roadways upon posts, and mud, of the freight is car ried about on tmeks and carts pushed by men. There are several drays hauled by horses, but horses are un popular, for their shoes roughen the planks, and they shake the town as : they trot through the streets. Of late automobiles and motor delivery trucks have come in and these will probably be the future traffic conveyancers. The resldet.ee Section of the city is located in th<> sides of the cliff higher up. It is so steep that you have to j climb stairways to reach certain streets, while other streets have wind ing roadways.of boardB upon which slats have been nailed to the planks to keep one from slipping. The Ketchi kaners make you think of the tree dwellers, whs have to climb ladders to get to their homes. I I ■ France Bars Imported Trucks. The French government recently disposed of 740 motor trucks, used In the war since August, 1914, at public auctioh. The trucks were originally fitted with motor-bus bodies and were running in the streets of Paris. At mobillxation they were com mandeered and have been used in transporting meat and other pro visions. New French-made chassis have taken their places and the gov ernment sold the old trucks. Here after all imported trucks will be "run to destruction" and then replaced by domestic product. France announces its intention of using no more import ed trucku in the war. Sherman's Phrase Indorsed. General Sherman's epigram, "Wat Is hell," has an apt paraphrase in a persona) letter recently received from a surgeon of the British forces in Flanders: "This war, as I see it here, In the benches," he says, "may be siftnmed up in three words—mud, blood ana blasphemy." The atmos phere of Flanders, it will be remem bered by readers of "Tristram Shandy," is conducive to. profanity— "Our armies swore terribly in Flan ders," said Uncle Toby.
