Not long ago A. A. Richards wrote
to the Hecretary of the Boise Com

travel does not come through the Pay

Payette valley roads were in such bad
condition that travelers were routed
another way. He added that when
ever the roads were made good much
travel would come this way, as this
route was preferred on account of its
picturesqueness. Lack of space pre

On account of the increase of in

The church will be open from 11
to 12 a. m. Sunday morning, at which
time Sunday school papers and quart
erlies may be secured at the front
door. An opportunity to contribute
for the Sunday school work will be
given . The purchase of our supplies
for the next quarter depends upon the
free will offerings.
On Friday we make our semi-annual
payment on the church debt. We hope
to have $400 to pay at that time. Pay

Closing Out Rug{
We have determined to close out our Rug Department. Want tl
space it occupies for other lines of merchandise, so shall sell the rugs ol
as quickly as possible.
We are naming prices on them that can't but appeal to buyers. For
tunately, we are able to do this to a degree that is very unusual. Our
Rugs were bought more than a year ago, at prices far lower than they
are now, so can sell them at less than present wholesale cost.
It's a conceded fact that our nig stock is the most complete in the
county. With many beautiful floral and Oriental designs to choose
from, and prices far below their worth, we are likely to sell them out
quickly. So it won't pay to delay if you want one.
