For once, boys were far in majority, and it is feared that brothers and male friends of the club members had dif ficulty in locating portions of their wardrobes next day. The evening's program pop stated of "pig", fortunes, and games—with variations, and S dainty refreshments were heartily M enjoyed by all present, though it Jf necessitated the forfeiture of one or two moustaches. a Methodist Church News. Sunday School attendance was away ahove par last Sunday, 175 being present. Would not that be fine for the regular record? We will gladly welcome you to our reg ular ranks. The theme for the Centenary Ser mon next Sunday is "Life Service." How the war opened the eyes or this country to the fact that unself ish service is the way to true great ness. Jesus said, "Whoever will be greatest among you let him be ser vant of all," and "I am among you as him that serveth." We want young people, especially, at this meeting, and we may help you to choose a life work that will pay In greater values than money. F. L.

Portfors sold his Stude baker car to Mrs. Phillips, of Fraser and left for Lewiston Monday morn ing, to bring in another car of this make. The Studebaker is one of the best autos on the market. it has graceful lines and its mechanism is the acme of simplicity and power.

Orofino had the best of the game until the seventh inning when Fraser scored two runs, having al ready scored two each in tne first and sixth, making the score 6 to 5, a decided advantage for the visitors. Orofino scored one, three and one runs in the first, third and fourth innings respectively, and was shut out until the ninth. The next game will be played here Sunday.

The local nine, how ever, is in first class shape, and con fident of a victory. tli Local Red Cross Work: a The work at Red Cross Rooms is rapidly drawing to a close. The ladies of the community nave re sponded nobly in finishing up the work. In this, no one has been more faithful than Grandma Moore, mother of Rev. Moore, of this place, she having turned out more gar ments In proportion to those many years younger. It is wonderful to note the neatness and exactness of her stitches. We thank the ladies one and all for faithful service.

Charlie Chaplin and Mary Bickford is expected to arrive in Kamiah celved last evening by F. II. Reb berg from Mr. Stanton editor of managing the Lewiston Tribune. Mr. Melford has been In Lewiston looking for the right kind of a lo cation for tiis picture and Mr. Stan ton recommended Kamiah to hint as the ideal place. He will be received by a delegation of our best boosters and given ample opportunity to get a good view of the Kamiah valley from all angles. And we miss our guess if, after he has seen It, he does not pronounce It as beautiful a spot as lie has found In the West. What the concern wants for its picture are the following: a small town, a wide and prettily located valley, high mountains, running water in both large and small streams, rough country, crags, cliffs, lots of pines, cowboys, Indians and all the local color that goes with these. And Kamiah has them all. If this place is selected. Mr. Melford will bring here a company of about twenty-two people, included la which will be many of his biggest stars. They will arrive in about a week or ten days and it will re quire about two months to make the picture Further than this, it one picture is made here and all goes satisfactorily, it may mean that this valley mav become the background for many pf the best productions of the great Paramount corporations and Kamiah scenery will be thrown on hnudrels of screens over the whole world. The Paramount people are recognized in motion picturedom as the leading makers of films and they spare no expense to get just what they want for their pictures. So, even their coming to look at Kamiah is a compliment to the rep Nation of our valley, but we have I mean much more than this.— Kam ia» Progress. April 24.
