"Warm congratulations to the
members of the Idaho senate and
house of representatives on the
splendid showing Idaho has made In

in the light of the following re
markable letter, written by a Prus

to a French teacher friend in Switz

Clearwater Republican by a lady

is but one race worthy of ruling
the wbrld and which has already
attained the highest degree of civi

Prussians, for though we Germans
in general are the lords of the
world, the Prussian is undoubtedly
the lord par excellence among the

of Clearwater River Section—
Will Tap Big Territory

Reports from different sections
tributary to the South Fork of the
Clearwater river seem to favor a
highway along that stream to con
nect with the North and South high
way at Grangeville and the Lewis
and Clark highway at Kooskia.
The proposed highway would fol
low the South Fork from Kooskia
to Stites and Harpster, then to the
lorest reserve line thence to Grange
ville and give an outlet to a large
territory over a good road. Tin
highway as a connecting link
tween the two great highways
would also give the traveler an op
portunity of using a river road and
escape several high mountains dur
ing the winter months.
