BURRELL <S* THIEL TELEPHONE NO. 133. MONTPELIER IDAHO. EXCLUSIVE AGENTS BEAR LAKE COUNTY—STAR VALLEY AND OOKEVILLE forest service is IN NEED OF MEN. Many ef the permanent employees of the forest service In Idaho and Utah, as well as a great many of the most capable and dependable local who In the paBt have made up > men the summer forces on the forests, have entered the military service. Owing to labor conditions In gener al, the forest service is finding it difficult*to obtain men of the proper qualifications to fill these vacancies. Last year's civil service eligible list was exhausted early and an excep tionally small number of men took the ranger's examination this year. In order that the service will not be found short-handed and badly handi capped by want of men at the begin ning of the summer field season, an effort is being made now to get a line-up of available material. Men are preferred who can give reasonable assurance that they will not be subject to military call during the coming season. They must be In good physical condition, possess a fair education, have experience in handling stock, be able to care for «themselves in the mountains, and deal with all classes of people. Even though a person does not desire to continue in this work indefinitely, two or three years spent in the gov ernment service is an excellent train ing for many lines of business. Any one interested should call at the lo cal office for further information. -ws URSES ARR BRAVE LOT OF GIRLS.

"The Red Cross nurses don't have any snap, but they sure are a brave lot of girls. I was in the hospital for Borne time with pneumonia so I know how the nurse« have to work. "We are stationed near an Ameri can base hospital, and our camp is sure fine. It is spring here now., France is sure beautiful; much more so than England. I have said about all Ï ean, so will close. Write often." -,—was NEW MARSHAL WILL BB NAMED IN IDAHO. Boise, March 9.—The dispensing of some of Idaho's federal patronage during the current month is antici pated by democratic leaders. They expect to Bee Leroy C. Jones, present state game warden, appointed to suc ceed Thomas B. Martin, whose term expires as United' States marshal. It is said by party leaders who are pre sumed to know, that the incumbent does Apt expect to be reappointed. It is believed by the friends of the state game warden he will be named. W. H. Thorpe, present chief deputy of the fish and game department, will probably fall heir to the game war denship If Jones is advanced to the more important office of marshal. This change, when it takes place, will conclude one of the most interesting chapters In democratic politics in the state. The forecast is freely made that it will come about because of the break that occurred between U. S. Senator John F. Nugent and Na tional Committeeman Robert H. El der, who is alleged to have indorsed Oeorge H. Fisher, chairman of the workman's compensation commission and deserted Jones.who had been one of his staunchest supporters, and. with others had been active in sav ing him from defeat at the last dem aorctic state convention. An appointment which the gover nor has had under consideration is a successor to E. A. Van SickNn of Weiser, former member of the state* highway commission. Mr. Van Sick lln's coommission expired early this year. WESTERN UNION MAKES RATE TO SOLDIERS. The Western Union Telegraph has recently made a rate for messages to soldiers In France that will prove of great advantage, and a move that will be much appreciated. For this patriotic service only one-fourth the regular rate will be charged. The messages can only be sent to London and from there will be forwarded by mail. The regular rate from Montpelier to London is 37 cents per word, but hereafter mes sages to soldiers may be sent from Montpelier at nine cents per word. Thus a ten-word message may be sent for 90 cents. However, there are no free words In the messages, except the name of the town from - which it is sent. The name of the person to whom the message is sent, as well as the name of the sender, are charged. Full directions as to how a mes sage should be addressed will be giv en at the telegraph office. —— --wss LIBERTY LOAN BONDS ARE SAFE SECURITY. The credit of the United States wsb so high and unquestionable that In 1900 two years after the Spanish war, 2 per cent bonds were offered at par and oversubscribed.; This is a fin an cial performance no other nation has ever equaled. United States 4 per cent bonds in 1888 sold as high a« 130 and in 1901 brought 139% on the stock market. The United States lias never defaulted on any of its bonds. Not one of the bond holders has ever lost a cent of principal ffijd interest except those who voluntarily have taken losses by selling their bonds In a period of temporary price depression. One hundred cents on the dollar, principal and interest, has the United States always paid.
