The Orofino-Portland Cement Company filed deeds this week to the 160 acre tract, known as the J. M. Bart lett place, together with the 40 acres recently purchased from the Improvement Company. Twenty-three acres belonging to Ellis Small was taken over and the deeds placed in escrow. This purchase of property is the first step in this gigantic undertaking, which, when com pleted and in operation, will revolutionize our little com munity by changing a straggling village into a prosper ous little city. We expect to have something more along this line in the near future. The College Chap CHARACTERS.

Taylor & Tucker, havlng tbe contract for the 7th mile of the Whiskey creek road, completed the same last Friday. This mile is built on an eight per cent grade and cost $990. Those knowing the character of the work done by Messrs Taylor and Tucker are loud in their praise of the same. There are five miles yet to be built before this road will be ready for travel and it is the wish of all citizens that this gap be closed as soon as possible and the road opened to the public. The commis sioners have called for bids for the construction of the sixth mile. be to to to Has Killed 36 Cougars. Walter Sewell brought down from his ranch on the North Fork, a cougar hide which measured ten feet from tip to tip. Mr. Sewell has killed thirteen cougars during the past year and thirty six since his occupancy of his present ranch on the north fork of the Clear water. Mr. Sewell says an adult cougar will kill two deer a week the year .round. He states that when he went into the section where he resides the deer were almost exterminated, but that now they are more plentiful than in any pnrt of the interior country. Mr.|Sewell is of the opinion that a larger bounty would result in the ex termination of the cougar family here. of Good Fishing The opening of the trout season Wednesday was marked by a large number of fair catches, ten or twelve pounds being the usual string. Most of the fish were taken in the log pond within a mile of town. As the water is slightly muddy bait proved a better lure than flies. The only novelty in trout taking was devised by City Attorney Smith. His method is to step lightly on a short peeled cedar pole and birl it swiftly and gracefully with smooth shoes. Then, when enough fish have gathered to ad mire the performance, he makes a sud den dive, grabbing three or four beauties in each hand.—Elk River Sentinel. on be at t0 Fire Department Meets. by the The regular monthly session of the members of the Orofino Fire depart ment was held in the store room of p - Orofino, Idaho, March 16th, 1912.

Now Mr. Shaw you are in the position of the fellow in the song, the chorus of which is to the effect, "THAT SOMEBODY LIED TO ML" Do you wish to straighten out this matter Mr. Shaw or do you wish the Publishing Company to take other action? Wellinan-McRoberts last Monday night. After the regular routine business was disposed of the question of providing the town with an adequate fire alarm all service was taken up and discussed, After a thorough sifting of the question all present seemed of the opinion that the most useful and practical instru- to ment was an electric siren. A commit- j tee was then appointed to provide ways | and means to procure and install the proposed alarm. This is a move in the right direction, as should a fire occur at night there is no means at hand at the present time to notify the public of danger. Clearwater Livery Changes Hands The Clearwater Livery Feed & Sale stable was sold Monday to Ike Dunlap and Clarence and King Mooers. The sale includes all stock and feed now on hand. The barn and reaiestate is owned by Louis Soderberg and is rented by tile present proprietors. The new firm, Dunlap & Mooers Brothers, is well known, the boys having grown up in this locality. It is the intention of the management to keep the livery up to the high standard maintained by Kinne and Hamilton, the former own ers. We learn from Mr. Kinne that he will remain in Orofino, where he is considering other investments. We have not learned the intentions of Mr. Hamilton, but understand he will re main here during the summer. Indian Fighters Get Discharges At last the old pioneers who took part in the Nezperce Indian war are to be recognized by the state and given honorable discharges by the adjutant general, a bill carrying this provision having been passed by the. tenth ses sion, and any who have participated can secure their discharge by writing to the adjutant general at Boise. These citizen soldiers have a fine record for bravery and valor during the Nezperce campnign nnd while the state has been tardy in recognizing them, justice is to be done at last. In looking over the lists of the two companies formed, it will be noticed that many of these hardy pioneers have long since crossed the river and gone to their reward.—Free Press. a May Day Exercises The children of the public school celebrated May Day Wednesday with appropriate ceremonies. The exer cises were held just east of the Nygard residence. The program was opened by the crowning of the May queen, Miss Helen Kinne, by her associates. The cere- ; mony was strictly in accord with old ; time customs and the handsome little queen played her part well. Her little maids of honor were Eunice Crisp, Helen Bonney, Millie McCollum and | Minnie Brown. i. The program then opened with a! grand March participated in by all. ; Then came songs, flower drills, races ; and exercises, participated in by the ! pupils of the various grades. The exercises were concluded by the May i pole dance, a spectacular affair, by ; students of the 7th and 8th grades. ; Many patrons of the school witnessed the exercises and all thoroughly enjoyed the occassion.

First Class Undertaking Establish ment Here. Business is business and the occupa tion of an undertaker is perhaps as es sential to the human family as a doctor. That a first class establishment of this kind is located * here, is a fact that should be proclaimed to the surround ing country. This establishment is owned by and under the direction of W. E. Stoddard, a licensed undertaker, of both Idaho and Washington, with headquarters at Gifford, on the reser vation. Everything necessary in a business of this kind is found in stock here at Orofino. A complete lin» of caskets such as are carried in the larger cities is at hand. All parapher- , nalia necessary to the profession, such i as suits, robes, dresses, steel vaults of enameled aluminum and sanitary morgue tables as well as a complete outfit for embalming.
