Boys in Bathing, get Beyond Depth—Mother
Attempts Rescue—Ail Drown
Word readied this point Sunday afternoon of the drowning of Mrs.
Howard Tapper and her two sons, James and Otto, at their borne
near Cameron. The particulars of the awful tragedy appear to be
as follows: The two boys, Otto and James, aged respectively fifteen
and eleven years, had gone to the pond to bathe, taking a tub with
them. After bathing in the tub, the oldest boy decided to take a
plunge in the pond with the result of getting beyond bis depth.
The younger boy, seeing his brother struggling in the water, ran
screaming toward the house where lie was met by his mother,
hastening toward the pond in answer to the terrified scream^ of her
two sons. She had picked up a bucket to which was attached a
rope, and tying this to her wrist, site cast the bucket toward her
drowning son who seized it, dragging her into deep water where
she was soon engaged in a life and death struggle to save her own
and her son's life. The youngest boy, realizing the death struggle
of his mother and brother, attempted their rescue witli the result
that he was drawn down and being' unable to swim, drowned with
the other memberr of his family. A daughter nine years of age
was an eye witness to the awful tragedy which robbed lier of her
entire family, except an older brother who is at present attending
school at Forest Grove, Oregon. Neighbors who arrived on the
scene recovered the bodies from the water.
The Tupper family is
well known here, having resided for several years in the weippe
country. The father, Howard Tupper, died about
and the widow and family have since resided on- the farm
Tupper was an aunt of Mrs. Samson Snyder of this point.

his son, Will, were away working on
the roads and the mother was enroute

some neighbors close by. At the time

and water secured Iron, nearby wells
and used in suppressing the flames,
which had spread to fences and close
by outbuildings and tor a time seriously
threatened the Alleneder, Lakey and
Lester residences. These were saved
only by the heroic efforts of neighbors
and spectators. The Kavanaugh family
lost all their household furniture and
good clothing as well as some money
and valuable papers which cannot he

IS THE BEST
The Idaho State University has recently issued Bulletin No. 72, covering
tests for three years on milling quality of Idaho wheats. The results show
that flours made from Bluestem and Turkey Red wheats are far superior to any
other. Special Stress is laid upon the good quality of Turkey Wheat Florin
On page 62 of bulletin the following summary is made: "The uniformity
of results secured from tlie Turkey Red flours was freely commented on by all
who came to see the assembled loaves. It is not putting it too strongly to say
that if flour that is now milled from Eden, Little Club, Red Russian, White
Winter, Oregon, and varieties of that class, Were replaced by flour milled from
Turkey Red, there would he a sharp decline in the number of complaints that
are now registered against the quality of Idaho wheat and flour.
In making these milling tests the flour was distributed to a number of
private homes for practical baking tests and reports asked for. Among these
reports are the following on Turkey wheat flour:
Sample 177. Dough stiff and Spongy,
slightly yellowish, crust light and soft.
Flour grainy, bread flaky. Color
Excellent in every respect."
Sample 195. Dough very stiff and spongy. Flour grainy. Bread white,
soft, flaky and "excellent in every way. Flour, best I ever used.
Sample 200. Dough very springy and works good. Flavor of bread nutty,
very pleasing. Flour better quality than any secured before in Moscow.
PRINCESS FLOUR is made from Idaho dry farming Turkey wheat und
Bluestem wheat blended to give the best results. You do not get the best flour
unless you get Princess.
