Sa;4C Brush Rubber. yt Denver, Colorado, a factory been started to manufacture lbbcr out of sage brush. It is laitned that the commercial rubber be made from it. If so, it - 0 uhl appear that Nevada is to msper like a Standard Oil mag at e, for the demand for rubber is jniitless, while Nevada certainly as enough sage brush and some ■,spare. The report recalls the emark of Thomas Edison when he •isited that state some years ago. booking out over the vast expanse [gebrush lie said: "God never vet made anything in nature that aot of value, and I believe some day that this sagebrush will be put to commercial use." Edison «■as always a good guesser, and it av be that the sage brush that encouraged will one day solve the problem of rubber tires for the three hundred dollar automobile. A LITTLE FUN. A Little Rock girl refused to marry a telephone repairer three imes giving as a reason that he was too much of a wanderer, that he roamed from piole to pole, from clime to clime, and that if he did ■ome home he'd he in-su-late that the neighbors would be sure to talk. When you are criticising your neighbor, don't give way to your conscience and think of your own faults, for you would soon come to the conclusion that your mind was getting weak. The illusions of courtship are generally more pleasing than the realities of matrimony, hut the latter is more realistic. An editor naturally gets infer nally tired jotting down praises for people who would enjoy the op portunity of attending his funeral. How about that little bill?" asked the doctor. j 'Why, doctor," was the reply, ! "only a little while before you sent it m you told me not to let anything I haven't.

At a meet "1" u lu toda N the state land hoard, a.k' receiving the report of the • kite Engineer, Wayne DarlinSton, l ! P0U the sul) jeet, adopted a resolu tion denying the application of the I aiokicci Improvement company o! permission to construct booms and holding works on the Clear water river. The application was bled some months ago by Francis Jenkins, B. F. O'Neil, G. G. Pick ett and others. After detailing the results of his inspection of the stream and the lo cations for the proposed works, which was very thorough, the Stute Engineer concludes hi follows: 1 lie proposed improvements would be of no benefit to the raft ing of logs, hut would he of limit ed advantage in driving single timbers, it would' keep them from lodging on the bars unprotected and would extend the season of driving beyond the time when driving is possible without improvement. " 1 lie sorting works would cause unnecessary work expense and de lay to rafts destined for points on the main river beyond, for which owners would receive no compensat ing advantage. "Comparing the estimated cost of these proposed improvements, $. r >000- which is a liberal figure— with the enormous volume of tim ber which can only find its way to market through this waterway, it appears that this franchise would yield a revenue for which no com pensating cost is involved nor com pensating benefits obtained by the individual citizen or the state of Idaho at large. "I do not consider the granting of this franchise as asked for, on the plans and specifications, a necessity of the developement of the lumber industry in that region; nor j '" ,1USU > 111 " laL > » ur ! will the refusal to grant it im P« le the development of the conn Tv* ln any way. The company asking for this franchise came into existence last winter at the time of the fight in the legislature over the Lewiston boom hill. That hill was defeated, and some of its bitterest opponents in and out of the legislature became interested in the new company that j aftenvar(1 s0U S ht Le franchise that ; i has now been denied.

Boise, Jan. 11. — A remarkable case of a woman masquerading as a man has just come to light near Rockville, in the western part of this state, near the Oregon line. A few days ago, Joe Monoghan, a w'ell know'll cowboy died sudden 1\ ;i ). f be residence of Barney Malloy, on Succor creek, in Oregon. When the body was being prepared for burial it was fuond that the deceas ed was a woman. She had ridden the ranges of eastern Oregon for twenty-five years and was widely known as an expert, faithful .untir ing cow boy. She worked for the cattlemen during the summer and winter and looked after stock of her own, of which she possessed quite a herd* The woman was small of stature, but very active a » d strong. She was an expert with revolver and rifle. Her home was in a dugout near Rockville. She was well liked by all who knew her well, but she avoided people except as she came in con tact with them in her work. De ceased was alxnit 54 years of age. Nothing is known of her antece dents. She served on juries in Oregon and voted at all elections. ( i jmn * to WorId ' s F " ir M. S. Idaho I making sociation Barker, secretary of the ress Association, is now arrangements for the as make a trip to the St. Louis exposition about May 15, which time a meeting of the Na t'.onal Press association will be held there. He is planning the trip '>» conjunction with the secretary of the 1 tab association, and the two organizations will make the trip together, each having a .spec ial car for the association. The association will be royally entertained along the route and at St. Louis and nothing will be left undone by the officers to make the occasion a happy and memorable one in every particular. A shor meeting of the association will be held in the Idaho building at St. Louis, an invitation to do so hav ing been extended the association by Commissioner Reid at the meet ing in Coeur d' Alene last fall. Secretary Parker will soon issue a circular letter to the state press giving details of the trip, the con ditions under which it may be made, etc. It is sincerely hoped that every member of the state press association will avail himself of this great opportunity to attend the World's Fair and have a grand time. It is seldom in the life of the average victim of journalism or the printers' art that such an oppor tunity is within his grasp, and it behooves him to plan to join the disciples of printcraft when they start for the City of Nations in old Missouri. There should be no difficulty in getting these who went to Coeurd'Alene to go to St. Louis, in view of the fact that such a de lightful time was had at the former place. The expenses of the trip will be very low, in fact, that no one need remain at home because of what it will cost to go to St. Louis. Quick response should be made to the secretary's letters so that the necessary arrangements for the trip can be made, as the time in which to do so is none too Ions*. WORLD'S FAIR NOTES. Idaho day at the World's Fair will he September 0. Indiana's poultry exhibit at the World's Fair will consist of 1000 birds. A prize of $100 has been offered by Director of Works Taylor to the one who suggests the best point of; vantage from which to view glories of the World's Fair. The competition is open to the world and will close June 15, 1904. Communications should be address ed to the secretary of the Exposition IDAHO NEWS. Idaho has occupied a position pretty well to the front of the Washington stage during the last few weeks in one way and another. The Wooley case for one thing has been rather prominently before the public, notwithstanding the fact that the office in question is not a big one. Wooley's frank and j engaging manners won the Presi-1 dent's kindly regard, and his ! eagerness to meet boldly and un equivocally every charge went far towards dispelling doubts of his : integrity. The department has 1 moved along with great caution and deliberation, and its decision ' cannot be foretold. The fact that | his commission expired at the close of the session is not in any sense to ! his discredit, nor is it a reflection on his character. 1 he law is most clear on the question of recess appointments which are not confirm-i ed during the session following.

Farewell to Wool : v (,j* 7\ ashington, Jan. 12. -It is un derstood that the President vill not reappoint H. Smith Woole as j assayer for the Boise City. Idaho. ot ; office. Wooley was named bv I President for the Boise 1 tue -a \ ership September, a recess appoint ; nient. Subsequent to the time of j this appointment charges were filed against him by two editors of the 1 Boise newspapers. The charges were brought to the President's attention and as they were of such a nature and from such a soure to demand consideration he dire tad an investigation of them. That investigation was completed today. A brief was made of the case by the treasury officers and presented to the President. It is understood that while the brief does not con tain a specific recommendation it practically sustains the cha ges made against Wooley. No action will be taken by the President in the case except that of a negative character. This will he in the nature of sending the nomination to the senate of another man for the assayership at Boise. What is the matter with the peo ple here digging a town well in some public place.
