Winter Goods
at Reduced Prices
The year just closed has been one the like of which this na
tion never before experienced. The war brought on unusual con
ditions in every line of business. Just as the war clouds were
beginning to break and everybody was looking forward to
Merry and Prosperous Yuletide, the epidemic of influenza swept
over the country and checked business from one end of the land
to the other.
The result is that merchants generally now And their
shelves overstocked with winter merchandise, much of which
will be out of date next season. There is yet two months of win
ter and people are actually in need of Heavy Wearing apparel.
In order to reduce our unusually heavy stock at this season
of the year, we are offering Men's Suits, Overcoats, Underwear,

one of the finest exhibitions of loyal

racy. Now that the war 1*. all over

emergencies. The people of the coun
try expect that prices will fall, but It
is hardly a tribute to human nature
to observe that most producers want
the reductions to descend on some
other thati themselves. In these col

In the story and take into account the
problem of labor considered in con
nection with the policies adopted by
the Government.
Under date of January 18, 191»,
the Director General of Railroads ap
pointed a Railway Wage Commission,
and acting upon their recommenda
tlon the recognition of the baklo
eight hour day followed, and a gen
eral advance of wages was approved,
amounting in stftne cases to 43 per
cent, and this Increase was made ret
rotractive to January 1, 1918. By
further orders the wages of all per
sons employed in the service under
the Railroad Administration were ad
vanced. Mr. McAdoo, in promulgat
ing his order, declared that farther
steps would be employed In order to
do "practical Justice to the 2,000,000
railroad employes of the country."
To this he added the "earnest hope
that railroad officials and railroad
employes will realize that their rela
tions under Federal control are not
baaejl upon the old conditions of pri
vate management."
The Federal Trade Commission es
timates that 20,000,000 people be
came engaged in war work,
cally all of them, outside railroad,
express and wire employment are
now shifting for themselves; read
justing their own affairs. They
have returned to what Mr. McAdoo
condemns as "the old conditions of
private management." But It will
be readily recognized that the broth
erhoods engaged In railroad employ
ment have fastened their war emer
gency methods very firmly upon the
railroads in peace times, and that
wholly through the intervention of
the government In their behalf.
Even with the dissolving war
clouds there is no let-up on the pres
sure being brought upon Washington
to recognize labor in organised
groups wherever the Interests of en
, terprlses or Industries can be made
to appear as being connected with
the conduct of public business. Thus
it appears that railway employes, tel
egraph, -telephone and express em
ployes have already acquired the hab
it of making a bee-line for Uncle
Sam to settle all of their wage con
troversies. This same condition exist
ed with reference to all of the differ
ent line of employment connected
with war work up to the time of the
cessation of hostilities. Apparently
the Institutions that have coupled up
with the Government expect the fed
eral machinery to keep thoir salaries
at the top noteh no matter what hap
pens to the rest of t»at grand class of
citizens who call themselves "work

during the year, was less by more

particularly the smaller ones," were
handicapped on account of the scar
city of labor, and even the larger
mines were at a great expenae on ac
count of the increase in cost of
freight, treatment, and supplies.
The mine production of gold in Ida

to about »867,000 in 1918. Th^most
Important gold production came from
the Sherman and Corpora^ property,
in Idaho county. Close to this was
the output of the Gold Hill and Idwa
mines, in Boise county. A considera

the copper ore from Mackay, in Cus

Idaho dredge at Idaho City was op

the total gold from dredging opera

The plant of the Kirtley Creek Co.,
in Lemhi county, made only a small
production previous to being dis

The mine output of silver de

They Lie in France Where Lilies
In the New York Time*
They lie in France
Where lilies bloom;
Those flowers pale
That guard each tomb
Are saintly souls
That smiling stand
Close by them in
That martyred land.
And mutely there the long night shadows creep
From quiet hills to mourn for them who sleep
While o'er them through the dusk go silently
The grieving clouds that Blowly drift to sea,
And lately round them moaned the Winter wind
Whose voice, lamenting, sounds so coldly kind.
Yet in their faith those waiting hearts abide
The time when turns forever that false tide.
In France they lie
Where lilies bloom,
Those flowers fair
For them made room.
Not vainly placed
The crosses stand
Within that brave
And stricken land;
Their honor lives,
Their love endures.
Their noble death
The right assures
For they shall have their hearts' desire
They who, unflinching, braved the Are,
Across' the fields their eyes at last now see
Through clouds and mist the hosts of victory. ,
According to statistics recently
published by the United 8tates public
health service, compiled from army
records, of the traces of veneral dis
ease found In drafted men from each
state in the Union, Idaho men show
! od remarkable freedom—Oregon
standing first and the Gem state sec
ond—Oregon's percentage being 0.59
and Idaho's 0.76. This constitutes
an excellent record fqr both western
states, as compared with New York,
1.82 per cent; Missouri, 3.52 per
I cent, and Florida 8.90 'per cent.
The figures were taken from exam
inations of 10,000 men from each
state. ■ The percentage may be easily
i arrived at by taking the percentage of

What to De.
In his statement to the public Sur
geon General Blue points but how
those who have had Influenza should
protect themselves against tuberculo
sis. "All who have recovered from in
fluenza," says the Surgeon General,
"should have their lungs carefully ex
amined by a competent physician. In
fact, it Is desirable to have several ex
aminations made a month apart. Such
examinations cannot be made through
the clothing nor can they be carried
out in two or three minutes. If the
lungs are found to be free from tuber
culosis every effort should be made to
keep them so. This can be done by
right living, good food and plenty of
fresh air."
Danger Signa.
The Surgeon General warned espe
cially against certain danger signs,
such as "decline" and "colds which
hang on."
These, he explained, were often the
beginning of tuberculosis. "If you do
