$25,000 BOND ISSUE
County Commissioners Call for
Election to Approve Bonds
to Repair Bridges
A bond issue of $25,000 is to be
submitted to the voters of Gem Coun
ty on September 16th, the proceeds of
which are to be used to build and re
pair the bridges of Gem County.
Such was decided at an adjourned
meeting of the County commissioners
held Monday at the court house, when
an election was called for September
16th, at which time the question will
be submitted to the voters. If the
bond issue carries it means that
$25,000 will «be expended to build
new bridges across the Seven Mile
slough at Letha and Vanderdasson
and at Ola and the bridges across the
Payette river at Letha and Emmett
In fixing the bond issue at $25,000
the board of commissioners practically
accepted the report of R. J. Newell
of Ola, a bridge expert who has made
a complete investigation of the
Mr. Newell's report estimates the
cost of the bridges as follows:
Seven-Mile Slough, Letha
Seven-Mile Slough, Vanderdas
son ...—.
Ola .
Letha river bridge.
Emmett .:..
$ 1,460
The estimate of the bridge across
the river at Letha includes changing
the course of the river back to the old
bed, the building of dykes to protect
the banks and the building of ap
proaches to the bridge that now stands
in the middle of the river.
Improvements to be made on the
Emmett bridge include replacing
some rotten timbers, tightening of
draw bars, etc., with which it is thot
the present bridge will last for sev
eral years.
The complete notice of election is
published elsewhere in this paper.

the development of the dairy in
dustry in Gem County are urged to
be present at this meeting.
There is a great need for increasing
the production of the dairy cows in
this section. This can best be brought
about through the use of bulls back
ed by good production. The Iowa '
State College conducted a demonstra-j
ti°n m which they selected a scrub
cow which gave 3,875 lbs. of milk
and 193 lbs. of butterfat. Her daugh- ■
ter, which was sired by a good bull,
made an average yearly production
of 6,956 lbs. of milk and 266 lbs 01
butterfat. Her daughter in turn,
which was also sired by a good pure
bred bull, made an average yearly pro
duction of 12,808 lbs. of milk and 483
lbs. of butter fat. Thus in two gen
erations the milk production was in
creased 8,929 lbs. and butterfat 290

The average cow in Gem County is
producing less butterfat than the
scrub cow used in this demonstration.
Let's get behind the good bull cam

our dairy herds.

Workman Struck by Ax.
Mike Spinnich, a workman employ
ed by the Boise Payette Lumber com
paIly in the woods near Cascade, near
] y l ost his life last week through a,
peculiar accident. Spinnich had built
a ] 0 g chute for the company and had
' ] e ft a keen bladed ax in the structure
The first log sent down struck the
ax , the blade striking Spinnich in the
temple and cutting the artery. The
■ f act that Dr. Rutledge of Cascade
happened to be within reach was the
only thing that saved his life, as ef
forts of bystanders to compress the
artery had proved futile and the man
was fast bleeding to death when the
physician arrived. Five stitches were
required to close the wound, and :
Spinnich is now on the way to recov

weighed 35 pounds. Salmon are run

the contract to deliver the mail to

from the Cabin Creek summit, many
of the pine trees along the road are

This, we were told by "Hank," the

Our camp was made about half a

Sunday school picnic. At times they
would rush into the tent and grab a
lock of Tom's hair with which to line
their nests. One, that I guessed was
a big wood rat, had a surprise when
he ran across my face and got his
feet filled full of splinters from my
stubby beard. The pesky things were

Emmett Ice Co. Completing Re
frigeration Plant—Capacity
Twentyfive Carloads
The Emmett Ice Company is busy
completing the cold storage depart
ment in their big ice plant, which will
cost in the neighborhood of $10,000.
When completed the storage depart
ment will consist of a meat chilling
room, a sharp freezer for freezing
meats, a merchandise room for the
storage of perishable merchandise
and the cold storage room, with a
capacity for about 25 carloads.
Dr. A. N. Gaebler has leased the
entire cold storage room and will
use it this fall for the storage of a
large portion of his apple crop from
his orchads on the bench. The room
has a capacity of from 20,000 to 30,
000 boxes of apples.
Other Fruit Notes
Usually the peach crop has ripened
been packed and shipped away before
the prunes are ready for market, but
this year things will be different ow
ing to the backward season this
spring. The packing houses will pro
bably start packing prunes first and
when the peaches start the prune
harvest will be on in full blast. This
will raise havoc, a3 usually the pack
ing houses are crowded to capacity
to take care of the normal prune crop.
While most of the peaches will be
pecked on the farms, loading and
shipping facilities will be crowded
with both crops.
J. R. Fields has leased the pack
ing house belonging to the Co-op Ex
change, on the rear of their pro
perty and will pack the produce of his
orchards at that place. Packing at
all the houses will start about Sept.5.
