Official Paper Official Paper of of Gem County Gem County PUBLISHED IN THE GARDEN VALLEY OF IDAHO EMMETT, GEM COUNTY, IDAHO, THURSDAY, JUNE 1, 1922. TWENTY-EIGHTH YEAR. NO. 65 END OF LIFE OF NOBLE YOUNG WOMAN This Entire Community Grieves Over Passing of Miss Pearl Patison. The death of Pearl Agnes Patison last Friday evening overwhelmed the entire community with sorrow. On the Saturday previous she was stricken with an attack of appendici tis while at her work in the Golden Rule store. An operation was per formed on Sunday afternoon, which for a time gave promise of a success ful outcome. But peritonitis develop ed and after a heroic struggle of sev eral days Miss Patison passed away. She was conscious to within fifteen minutes of her death. Miss Patison was bom at Napton, Mo., June 21, 1888. When 9 years of age she came with her parents to Emmett, where she has since lived. On December 20, 1903, she was bap tized into the fellowship of the Em mett Raptist church, where she has been an active and influential mem ber. She has served the church in various official positions and at the time of her death was a primary teacher, a young People's leader and a member of the church choir. Her influence was felt not only in the church of her choice, but in all the churches and in the entire community, and through Southern Idaho, was a well known business woman and for the past 10 years has been one of the force of the Golden Rule Store. In her work here she came into con tact with hundreds of homes and many people who came to esteem and love on She her. She was a member of the sec ond graduating class of the Emmett High school, being one of six to grad uate at that time. Her funeral was held on Sunday afternoon at 3 p. m. in the Baptist church, conducted by her pastor, A. C. Lathrop, assisted by Rev. Elmer Grant Keith of the Methodist church, Rev. Milier of the Dunker church, and Rev. C. H. Blom of the Ontario, Ore gon, Baptist church. It was one of the largest attended funerals ever held in Emmett. Fully 800 people looked upon her beautiful face for the last time here on earth and many eyes were moist with tears as they thought of her lovely life. Pastqr Lathrop stressed as the secret of her successful life: (1) Her personal rea lization of the presence of Jesus Christ, (2) her faithful witnessing, and ( 3 ) her life of devoted service to God, home, church, bbsiness and com munity. The floral tributes were beautiful and touching. Her girl as sociates in the Golden Rule store act ed as honoray pallbearers. She was laid to rest in Riverside Cemetery, mourned by the entire community. She is survived by her aged parents, Mr. and Mrs. M. A. Patison, three sisters, Mrs. Lillie Bsch and Mrs. Mary Nichols, both of Nyssa, and Mrs. Annie Pollard of Palo Alto, Calif and one brother, Franklin of Home dale, Oregon. All were present at the funeral. To have lived such a life as to call for such spontaneous tribute; to pass on and leave behind such a heritage of love, and yet to have walked only the quiet path of the great majority of "just folks," is an illuminating lea son for those of us who are treading the same path. Central Mesa Graduates Seven. On the evening of May 19th occurr ed the closing exercises of the Eighth Grade class of seven of Central Meaa. H. O. Vernon and wife had taught the school the past year.

Jokes of the class and teach ers were read by the class and re turn of experiences and object les sons given by the teachers. All the class did well. The teacher expects to bear from the class in after life and with sorrow we sepatate from child ren and all. We aspire for that which is high and noble in life. H. O.

ORCHARD NOTES The time we have determined on for applying the second codling moth spray is here—June 1 to June 8 in clusive—and we believe that every apple or pear grower will do well to make every effort to complete this application during these eight days. The same proportions of strength of poison should be used as for the first spray. This second spray is what is called the first cover spray and care should be exercised to cover apples and leaves alike with a fine mist rather than a heavy course spray, the object being to give an even coating over all instead of a heavy drenching; and be sure to use the spreader nico tine and lime sulphur combination as for the first. Our Fruit prospects have improved very much during the past 10 days, so that from present in dications we can look for a record year.
