Mark the dam Ri Election TURNING THE NEW LEAF "1 haue not found today so vain Nor yesterday so fair and good That I would have iny life again And live it over if I could." ■HUE first conclusion that a man arrives at when he thinks of the new year is ,lial will tarn over a new leaf, observes Laura .lean Libbey. If lie's single lie resolves that he'll cut loose from the companions be lias had—tiie jolly fellows who are not Just wiiat they ought to be. He makes up his mind that lie'll quit turning night into (lay, lurking around until the wee sma iiours and attempting to work the next day. He makes up his mind he'll save money. Instead of going out with the boys he'll hunt up the nice girls whom he knows and spend his eve nings with them. From the many he will choose one girl who shall be nearer and dearer yet than all others. He thinks he has had quite enough of bachelor life—in fact that he'll marry and settle down. The married man's thoughts are along quite a different line. He makes up his mind to cut down the number of clubs :o which he belongs aud give bis wife the new cloak she has been pining for. He will forego the stag rackets that he has been accustomed to join in, telling his wife that he's been to a prayer meeting. He con cludes to give his wife a little more pleasure in the way of outings, and to pay her pretty compliments to keep her heart from withering alto gether. He'll cease sneering when she speaks of her relatives and refrain from treating tltem shabbily when they pay her a visit. The father-in-law's thoughts take a different turn. After long and serious thought on the subject, he concludes that he will shut his eyes to his son in-law's peccadilloes, give him a help ing hand instead of grumbling at the manner in which he Is keeping hie daughter ; that he'll not take aides with either when a family row la on. The free lance concludes to cross off all the married from his calling list, and ta turn his attention to the women who art heart whole sad fancy free. 1 mW the to : - ; V?

The rounder who depends on the lunch counter for his daily fare con cludes that he will accept a Job from any man who is inclined to give him a square deal. The gambler thinks he will turn his attention from the tricks of his trade because gambling is pro hibited in ids state. He thinks he may pick up a nimble penny by becoming a rousing revivalist—chasing the de'il 'round the stump. The milkman con cludes not to stop at the town pump for a drink, the dashing chauffeur con cludes to put his name and address in his Identification book when be goes Joy siding. But do you think that these men will keep these resolves? It is a good thing to hope. To to a the hie the for "THE DEVIL" DRESSED UP The Devil, you say! Yes, "The Devil,'' in the person of Mr. George Arliss, 1» due at the Rex Theatre, the first screen ap pearance of this celebrated stage star. One would scarcely expect the devil of tradition to appear in a glove fitting drese suit, black patent leather shoes, wearing a monocle and displaying the well-groomed ap pearance and exquisite manners of those who have lived) and moved and had their being In the select circles of European society. Yet, that la the way "The Devil'' Is to appear at the Rex Theatre tn the Aaeoclatad Exhibitors' feature, directed by James Young from Ed mund Gouldlng'a story, with an alt star cast tn support of Mr. Arliss I that Includes Sylvia Breamer, Lucy I Cotton, Mrs. Arliss, Roland Bot tomley and Edmund Lowe. SHORT COURSE to ly To Teach Practical Farming to Men and Young Men at State Col lege at Moscow. The School of Practical Agricul ture, U. of I., Moscow, is exactly what its name implies-—a school for training piactical farmers. The entire curriculum has been devel in I I men to be-1 oped with this one end in view, to train men and young come better farmers and better citl-1 sens, to teach them to produce more and better farm products and) to get a greater amount of joy out of farm life. In order that the school may be of greatest service to the men on the farm, the school year Is divided into two ten week terms, both of »which come at the slack season for farmers. The fall term is now in session, but the winter term doe not begin until January 4, 192Î. At that time many new courses will be started. | so tht a boy who was not there for the fall term may come in at that time and get Instruction in almost any phase of agriculture he may Some of the new courses a ap of tn Ed alt Bot desire. beginning at that time are soils, grain crops, irrigation, farm motors, farm tractors, horticulture, vege table gardening, poultry production, milk production, live stook manage ment. farm management, and farm records. Expenses of the School are very reasonable. No tuition is charged, and room and) board may be had for from seven to ten dollars per week. Exclusive penses at the school for the ten weeks winter course should not ex ceed »125.00 It is very desirable that n stu dent entering the sehool he sixteen of transportation, ex HARLAN CORRECTS MINOR ERRORS IN HISTORY STORY I have tried hard to relate the with historical facts connected events of the Lolo trail, novice in ouch work I find I have Being a two mistakes, some made one or mistakes hardly worth mentioning. The major mistake has been called to my attention by Mr. Miles Can of Boise, to whom I feel great ly Indebted. When Lewis and Clarfc first came into what is now Idaho river non in the Lemhi andl Salmon country, I said they came thru the Mr. Cannon says Beaverhead pass. I should have said the Lemhi pass. I had in mind the same pass for I have heard the pass spoken of as He then directs attention to where I said "They doubled back on the route they had traveled coming Into Idaho, return the Beaverhead, Is me my ing to the Jefferson, thence across to the head of the Bitter Root river." This is an unwarranted mistake by which I madfe by a bit of care less reading, but I was hurrying td the Lolo trail where I expected my real story to begin. Lewis and Clark when they left Lemhi valley went by way ot | cree ^ > no w known as the North Fork of the Salmon river, past what Is now Glbbonsvllle and thru the Crowfoot pass to the head of Publishers the Bitter Root river, please correct. Mr Cannon tells me that Sacajawea "lived to a ripe old age and was burled at Fort Washakie. In the Shoshont Indian Reservation north of Lander Wyoming." I hope this m tiue. but I have authority fo- writ ing what I did about her, anJ until I make further Investigation I will for ten ex stu pass It. As a whole the students of his tory can depend* on the facta as set forth ; later I shall revamp, rearmngo and correct all discrepancies and add mors data and many Interesting sidelights that In my hurry to keep ahead of the press. I have been com pelled to leave out, and other facts that have come to me since I started the series of article*. I am Indebted to the Net Perce* themselves for much „f the data I have given about them. They have taken great Interest In It, and encourage me to go on. found) the moot of them very truth ful and all Intend to be, but get n little mixed on time ot events. Th* Lewis and Clark event was one well remembered by them, and nearly nil tell the same story about It. ex I have The motive in writing the articles for the purpose of awakening was a sentiment In the minds of the people, particularly Idahoans, that this trail has a history as much re nowned as any trail to the Pacifie coast, and Is as worthy of remem brance as any trail on the continent and should be properly marked as te ! the camping places of Lewis and This I have : Clark thru our state. done on th* Lolo trail with the *» ceptlon of the Fish creek basin be fore mentioned, also other places ef marked or will be Interest are marked. The State Historical So ciety has proffered aid. years of age or older and that he have an eighth grade certificate, but these requirements nre not rig idly adhered to. If the boy to eld enough and ean show that he wSl profit by th* work offered, he wBI be admitted. .
