At recess we took the potatoes that Miss Brown asked us to bring and put them way down In the ashes under the fire. Then when noon came we took a stick and dug them all out. They were all brown and we ate them with the butler and salt we had brought. Oh, they were good." Yes, and we had cocoa, too, that Miss Brown let the big girls make. Here comes Margaret, she'll tell you about that. And Mother, I didn't feel so tired and ^Apiÿ this aft^n.*^ ! I guess Miss Thrown was right. She said we could study better if we had [® something hot at noon. Hope wel have It every day." j Then Margaret, a tall, quiet girl of 14, told her story of the hot lunch. "This morning Miss Brown gave us ! each a little book—bulletin, she call-i ed it—about Rural School Lunches, ! 18 and fet us read it at reading time. It ' has a lot oi interesting things in it . about making food, the making of f hot dishes, and the equipment need-i: ed. In the back are recipes for good school .lunches. We made cocoa to day by the recipe that we found on ! page 13, and it tasted so good with our cold lunch." "Miss Brown let us big girls put on our aprons a little while before the noon bell rang, and put the milk on and get the cocoa apd sugar ready, We had to serve the cocoa and clean ; up the dishes and pans afterward." "So that is why she wanted you to : in bring aprons and towels? , | "Yes, and we are to have regular j cooking lessons that way. The boys will help too. They wiped the dishes and swept the goor today. The bulle tin came from the Extension Depart ment. University of Idaho, which is at Boise, and anyone can have one \ who writes for it. Miss Brown says that they publish many other bulle tins, and that we can learn so many j things from the specialists there about food, clothing, poultry,—and J good health. "The new clothing bulletin will tell just the proper clothbs for children , to wear, and will give suggestions for cleaning and making 'over dresses and suits. You can send your name in and they will send their new bul- , lctins as they come out and any already printed. Perhaps we can find out a way to make over that green I dress of mine that I hate so the way it is. ! "Do send for them, Mother, so I can be the first one of the girls to have them. You said you were going to make an early garden this year, too. Miss Brown said that the garden bulletin was fine. I hope I can go to thte University some day and learn to it, write things like that." ;that , Amonson-Tage Case Dismissed. In a long hearing, which Vegan, Wednesday and ended Thursday, be-1 fore Probate Judge Cronkrite, the charge against A. F. and Charles, Tage, brought for the alleged wrong ful taking of three head of cattle be- ty. longing to Mrs. Amonson, was dis missed without testimony on the ent part of the defense. Three witnesses, Messrs. Anker and Oscar Amonson and Morris H. Cottoin, had testified, when the motion to dismiss was granted. t r The charge was brought and prase cuted by County Attorney Casterlin on the affidavit of Anker Amonson. Quarles & Cherry conducted the de- Q f fense. A feature of the caste that was f Un considered somewhat unusual was the issuance of a writ duces tecum intended to fetch into court a num- ln ber of live animals of the herds in- a g volved in the hearing. The writ did that thing at least to producing car them_on time though it required a t jj two-day drive to cover the fifty-mile journey afoot. < The court order confirmed the own tership of three of tba cattle in con- a troversy in Mrs. Amonson. while one of them had already been admitted M to belong to the Tages. ;Xhi . . .. . . . . „ iLire I. » dred or two hundred pouiis of coal The from Moose cretek. where Johnny Mullen own* vast deposits of this P* 11 fuel.

J Thte Spokesman-Review has long been convinced that cooperation is the best and readiest means of bet , tering farm conditions In this coqn try. The very obstacles that have made farm cooperation difficult— the comparative isolation of the , farmer from other farmers In number —make It all the more impérative that he should have cooperation, I Alone he can accomplish little for the betterment of farm life in the ! state and the nation. No matter how grteat the effort that is required, the farmer should strive for ever-lncreas ing growth and improvement of hls cooperative organizations. He should not be discouraged if, at times, pro gress is not as rapid as he would like it, but rathter reflect upon the truth ;that without cooperation his voîcë i , would be feeble and his Influence ^ perceptible. _ Shipping Association Successful. The cooperative shipping associa tion, formed in August, 1918, by mem tfers of the farm bureau of Linn coun ty. Ore., has shipped 26 carloads of livestock from six towns. The pres ent membership is 177 fanners. The association, managed by an execu tive com mittete, employs a shipping manager who gets 10 cents a hun dred pounds and his expenses on t r | p „ t0 market. The association ships for anyone, but retains 50 rents from non-members' first shipment as membership fees. Damages and loss f° Q f stock are paid frcm an insurance in f Un <j kept up by an assessment of 5 ctents a head on sheep, 10 rents on nogs and 15 cents on cattle. Shipper* IO ln ^ach car apportion freight, yard a g ei commission, feed ar.J yard in surance charge* on that particular car among themselves, according to t jj e weights in their stocks. - _ y^e Home of Good Printing. y he Recorder office has turned out w a j ot D f general printing of latte to dp jjg capacity for variety as well M for skill ln fh „ art preservative." ;Xhi g work haa had thf , range from an ordinary every day -------- every day poster to the Pamphlet and intricate rul«i blank, ty The «»aipraent of the office is main talned in ,biR Mature to give its out P* 11 a distinction of. its own.

Pnfvate Warren Doak, son of Ed Doak of Salmon, writes hls last let ter from Bit burg, Germany, where he is with the 814th engineers. War ren says he is anxious to get home.

SELECT YOUR EGOS FOR HATCHING CAREFULLY One of the most important Items in poultry production is the careful se lection of eggs for hatching accord ing to J. W. Sanborn, extension poul try bush I ml um n of thte Ft ah Agricul tural college. Mr. Sanborn baa drawn ..... up th- following suggestions regard ing egg selection for the benefit or poultry production. Set only good sized eggs uniform ,n ,1,e Set only good colored eggs uniform in color. Eggs weighing less tlmtT two ounces should not be used for hatch ing. Larger eggs hutch larger chicks. Larger chicks grow faster than the smaller they are marketable as broil trs earlier, they mature younger and they begin .laying sooner. These facts apply to all breeds. Tho comparison are made between small and large chicks in the same breed. Careful selection of eggs for hatching pays. Don't neglect It.

The Salmon agency of Mrs. String fellow for leading magazine period icals, Including tho Country Gtentle man, Saturday Evening Post and La dles Home Journal, is an example of of one woman's success In business, for subscriptions are pouring in up on ,Jjer. Somebody asked the little lady the oth'er day what she was go ing to do with all the money she Is making from this enterprise, which she started not long ago In Salmon and which is already paying as much as some hundreds a year. "Well," she replied, "we have four lllvtely boys to clothe and feed and educate the best we can. In this work I am enabled to help out, for you know the salary of my husband, who is a minister of the gospel, does not go a long ways toward meeting ail the de mands upon us in these times. And .so I took It upon myself to do some thnK in a mUe wrltlnK for tha nows . papers and sometimes for an occas ional magazine and also this sub scription parf of tny work." Thte Recorder Is glad to call atten tion to the line work Mrs. String fellow Is doing and to commend It to the public as worthy ail praise and the fullest support. Osborn-Crandall Card Party. Mr*.

'eral in se SHARP RETORT FOR SENATOR WHITCOMB The action of Senator Wuitcomb In denying the right of the Pahalmvr. 'ot section of Custer county f» r Air or 1 determination in their effort s vor. on the quesUon of annexation o Lemhi county, together with the rv lvtrp <' back-up action attempted to be put upon thte same mat ter'by the Business Men's association of Sal mon, has caused seme bad feeling, it is said, in tfc* southern half o! the great little valley. Threats are heard thctV and elsewhere In the locality against Salmon business n Kni nHi common business Internal, for the part the association took "- ■■ °°' 1 ' for in in ln the as All are 8. ex ap of Is a a . Roy Herndon, who with Valentine Maeisar and other prominent resi dents and business men of the valley took an active part tn tho enterprise' says: ' "When we saw. there was no show for the annexation bill we tried for th,* ntext best thing, and succeeded In getting a bill Introduce! providing for joint highway districts' and 1/ It passes it will help out such communi ties aa the Pahsimaroi valley, and they all promised to pass It. "Tne proposition of tUs annexa tion bill was (all up to Senator Whit comb. There was not very much op position from Cust'er county. Baker was 'luke warm' but be would have been for It if Whitcomb had come out for It. "There waa a petition, and atroa* letters to Senator Baker from Cuater county cltlfena, asking that be vote for thte bill, and while he had a tnae sage from Challlt saying they were circulating a petition against It. The petition had not reached Bolae when I left, and only a few letter* from Cuater county citlsens against It, so you ifee that tf Senator Whitcomb had been for It, It would bare gone through In a few days, without any delay at all. But be Juat says, 'You can't ccm« in. I won't let you.' Now the question comes to us, in view of the action of the last Business Men's association , 'Dotes Lemhi county wunt the l'ahsltnarol r "1 will be in Salmon some of these days, and will tell you all about It." Mr. Herndon worked zealously for the annexation measure as affording releif for the inconvenience of divid ed school and road and taxation dis tricts. Hls endeavors were so Impor tant that the Boise papers gave them large notice. , But the pteople of the Pahs bn a rot should by no means hold the whole town of Halrnon responsible for the action of a few of its business men nor for what Henatur Whitcomb re fused to do. A vast majority of the business men of Salmon, with no ul terior motives to guide them and tell them what to do or what not to do, stand for what commends Itself as right and are not bewildered by the altruistic benevolence of the politic ians. On this score Mr. Herndon re ters to the statement of the senator wherein he charged that "there la a nigger in the woodpile," saying: "Yes, there is, and Whit la the nigger and two or three of hls little puppy dogs are also ln evidence." Only Fifty Per Cent of Snow Compilations made by the forest officers throughout thib part of the interniountain country show that thte snow fall has been far from normal or satisfactory, that Is prior to the report, which was made last week. Since then snow nas bee- falling pretty gentrally. The foret-t mten say there is ample time yet for snw In the high muntains, hnwevere, and this may be expected David 1-alng reports 50 per cent of the average on |fh e Challls ranges, while the forest .supesvlsor at Salmon. 8. C. ''crlbner, says the average here Is only about 4o per cent of normal, or rather was at the time tef hls report. Leesburg Mahoneys On Visit. Mr a~d Mrs. Georgs K. Mahootey, who had been over from Leesburg [since Isst week, left Salmon yester day by train for the east and south, expecting to be away from home on a long visit to their old homes and rel alive* In Oklahoma, Texas. Iowa. Missouri and Wisconsin. It may be the tall of the year before their home friends here will see their pleasing (faces again. Then they will come home by auto. This visit is undertak '*n as their bridal trip, deferred since *ast fail. Now they find it may be made with more satisfaction in the fact that th-ir I^esburg business af fairs are left In the hands of Mrs. « Walters, the # daughter of Mr. Mahon ey, and who comte over from Twin .Fall* last week. Mrs. Mahoney lias not been back home for mort« than 30 years. / - Electricity for Stock Farm.
