Boise, May 6.— Postmaster Gener al Albert S. Burleson is cited to ap pear in person or through counsel, together wih the Mountain StateB Telephone & Telegraph company, be fore the Third judicial district court of this state, to show cause why a permanent injunction should not be issued against them to prohibit the order of the postmaster general to increase telephone rates for that com pany in southern Idaho from going into effect. Judges Charles P. McCarthy and Charles F. Reddoch issued a tempo rary Injunction against them Satur day afternoon on application of tbe public utilities commission of Idaho. Tbe order was made returnable on May 22 when argument will be heard on the merits of the case. Commission Not Consulted. Without consulting the commis sion Postmaster General Burleson authorized an Increase in telephone rates of approximately. 50 cents per month for all subscribers.

It is the one great success in a light-weight eight-cylinder car at a moderate price. And this means saving on tires, saving on gasoline and longer life to the car. Î. A Great Economy Feature—Two-Phase Power. The remarkable two-phase power feature of the 58 H. P. motor means still further saving. In the first power phase, you travel at any moderate pace, one or two to twenty miles an hour on a lean mix ture, conserving fuel—taking you quickly and easily abouj town, through traffic, up hill and down.- And then when speed and power are needed (second phase), step on the accelerator. You will be amased at the showing of speed and power. We will gladly demonstrate this ear at any time or t . plaee. Paris Novelty Works Phone 54 The ac went into effect on May 1. tion' taken in tbe district court tern porarily restrains the order from becoming effective. The commission directly attacks the Jurisdiction of Postmaster Gener al Burleson in overriding the com mission in .the matter of regulating rates of the public utility within its Jurisdiction. Bay It Is Illegal. It is charged by the public utilities commission that the defendants "il legally and unlawfully and without authority of law, contrary to the act of congress and the proclamation of President Wilson and contrary to the constitution of the United States, an nounced the increase in rates." The contention is further made by the commission in Its complaint that the defendants have never at any time presented a petition to the com mission seeking that the increase be allowed and for that reason is in vio lation of section 153, chapter 106 of the compiled laws of Idaho, further conended that the putting in to effect of the increased rates will result in "continuous and Irreparable It i» damage nad Injury to the people of the state of Idaho, unless the said defendants are restrained from so doing." G1KLS, HERE'S A CHANGÉ TO CAPTURE A PRIZE. The following letter, received by Mrs. Jell Davis, chairman of the local Red Cross from private C. C. Lind say of McCue, Wash., is self explan atory.: To tbe dear ladies of the Montpel ier Red Cross: Since arriving home from overseas 1 feel it my personal duty to express my appreciation and thanks to you individually and col lectively for the kindness shown one of America's soldiers. A brief histo ry of myself may be of interest to some'of you—1 am 38 years old and full of pep, and a farmer and proud of it. 1 own 160 acres of Washing ton wheat land and am 1000 per cent American—no German in my family or ever will be! I am single but France taught me one thing by ber love for a home and all its meaning. I intend to follow her example pnd get that necessary decoration for my home as the French say "Voo compre madamoselle.' Wishing you God's most choice blessing, and if . It does not offend I would be pleased to hear from some young Montpelier lady." TO MAKE IMPROVEMENTS ON CARIBOU RESERVE A crew of six men left Montpelier Tuesday to put in tbe summer on the Caribou forest reserve doing repair and construction work. Their first work will be repairidy tbe fences on the Montpelier water shed, in order to keep stock from tbe creek. The men wHl also repair telephone lines, construct several miles of new line and repair roads within the forest. One Important piece of work to be done this spring is the grubbing out of 40 acres of larkspur in Caribou basin, near Gray's lake. This plant, as all know, is a deadly poison to cat tle, and the eating of it has taken si heavy toll of cattle In years past. l Last year 80 acres of this poisonous plant were grubbed up on the Carl-| bou forest. In that area the men ■ found the carcasses of thlreen an imals that had been poisoned the | year before. A special tool is used I in the work, and it is not a very dif- j licult task to grub the plant up by the roots. In the Dry valley section several ! sprjngs will be fenced in and the j water from them piped into troughs : for tho convenience of stock grazing on the reserve. Out of evil comes good.

The bull association sounds their death .tnell, but it replaces them with nulls of better breeding. Last June there were 44 dairy bull associations and several have been organised since then. They are doing excellent a A1 l rec f rds • e ? t A i®i^, e United States Department of Agricul ture indicate success. Without ex ception they sbow an increased in come without an increased cost. The New Windsor (Maryland) Bull Association has furnished production records of dams and daughters for threo successive years. Each year the daughters have produced more i milk and butter fat than their dams. which demonstrates that the bulls were well selected. Of the 21 daugh ters of association bulls for which the 1918 records are* available, 16 ex celled their dams In butter fat pro duction of both milk and butter fat. The average yearly production of I he dams was 5,560 pounds of milk and 219 pounds of butter tat. The average yearly production of the 21 ilaugbters was 6,523 pounds of milk md 263 pounds of butter fat. In milk production, the daughters excel led their dams by 963 pounds or 17 per cent, and In butter fat production by 44 pounds, or 20 per cent. These ire not as large gains as some other bull associations have given, but are well worth while, as they are made without additional cost. Because of cooperative ownership the bulls cost tbe farmers no more than would have, been paid for scrubs, it cost much less to feed the bulls because there were not so many of them. The increased production, herefore, was all net profit. WHAT THE FORD OO.
