New York, March —.
Paris anil New York are both at the

many weeks back, in the midst of the
Spring opening liubbuu. We are not
quite sure as yet whether coats are to
be short or three-quarter length, whet
Vher sleeves are to be tight or loose,
■whether blond or brunette will be the
fashion this season.
It is quite safe to predict, however,

Here and There the Tapering Waist
Quite often one notices in the new
importations a tendency to the slender,
tapering waist; and this, of course,
means the well-corseted figure. It is not
probable that the hour-glass figure will
be countenanced for a moment, but a
trifle more trimness,, conducted by a
well-fitting modern corset, is necessary
to meet the requirements of the
Spring suit, with its hint or a curve at
the waistline, its graceful flaring skirt
and coat-skirt. A carefully selected
and properly fitted corset is necessary
and always has been to a smart, well
groomed appearance. Rather than in
jurious, the right corset tends toward
health.
Several of the Paris houses are ad
vocating the three-quarter-length coat,
and now and then one sees a polonaise
effect. These coats are made with well
fitted shoulders and rounded waistline.
It is quite remarkable that this should
be so just now, when we are massing
so much fulness in the -nkirts between
the belt and the knees, but it only
goes to show the wi.te variety we are
to enjoy this Spring and Summer.
A Word on Skirts
Skirts continue short and full. Many
of the houses are emphasizing the favor .
shown by them for the crinoline since
the first whisper of full skirts began
to circulate, and many are using inter
esting methods of extending the skirts,
among these are reeds, featherbone, and
even hair-cloth stiffenings. In many
instances the reeds are graceful and
becoming, but as a rule, the effect is
extremely awkward, as there is no pre
tense whatever of concealing the medi
ums, and they often protrude at un
expected angles, giving a curious, un
beautiful result.
In the regulation Summer frock and
the dance dress of net, organdy, or
other of the sheer, dainty fabrics this
year, the fulness of the skirt is made
decidedly graceful and youthful by
tucks, ribbons, and bias bands of the
lame, 01 a contrasting material. Often
net are attached *
folds of chiffon
to the inside of the skirt of the dance :

illustrations this week the skirt is of
taffeta and the effect of the deep tuck
is well brought out. The first dress
has an underbodice of shadow lace and

short sleeve cap, while it concedes to
Fashion's sleeveless demand, also mak
es a concession to modesty. The second
frock shows the combination of net and
taffeta, Aside from being especially
pretty, this combination is practical, as
net wears particularly well and lends
itself to almost any fashion of draping.

Floatings and ruchings of all widths
and fashions are still favored trimmings
for both street and house frocks. Nar

can scarcely be brought about by ma
chine-made trimmings. It is quite in
teresting to see a little blue serge

is effective on both silk and wool ma

WHY IT SUCCEEDS
Because It's for One Thing Only, and
Blackfoot People Appreciate This
Nothing can be good for everything.
Doing one thing well brings suc
cess.
Doan 's Kidney Pills are for one thing
only.
For weak or disorder kidneys.
Here is reliable evidence of their
worth.
Mrs. John C. Link, Box No. 6.12,
American Falls, Idaho, says: "I was
annoyed by backache and weakness
across my loins. I was nervous, could
n't rest well and the kidney action was
irregular and bothered me. The doctor
prescribed Doan's Kidney Pills and
they gave relief at once. The back
ache left, my kidneys were strengthen
ed anil I felt better in every way."
Price 50c at all dealers. Don't
simply ask for a kidney remedy—get
Doan's Kidney Pills—the same that

PROHIBITION FOR THE DISTRICT
OF COLUMBIA
It having been proved that regula
tion does not regulate in the District
of Columbia, there is now demand
that Uncle Sam give it prohibition.
Those opposed to it are asking that the
matter be referred to a vote of the
male residents of the District. ' ' This
is the one place in the United States
where the liquor crowd desire to have
the people settle the question," remarks
a prohibition journal. "In the states
they fight the people's rule to the last
ditch. ' '

Shepard, "is it suggested that on the

THE TWO KINGDOMS
Each man a kingdom may possess;
May play the monarch's role;
And his the. kingdom is no less
Than that of mind and soul;
Each man, of course, must make his
own,
And therein must live, too.
And by his kingdom he is known—
What kind, good sir, have von?
A poor man's kingdom rich may be;
A rieh man's kingdom, poor;
And even through eternity
Some kingdoms may endure;
Their subjects are kind acts and deeds,
Good words, and heart-thoughts true—
What monarch better subjects needs?
What kind, good sir, have you ?
Some kingdoms which more pompous
are,
And full of brazen show.
Are emptier and poorer far
Thau those that kindness know;
At last to dead-sea fruit they turn;
Become as bitter rue,
Dead ashes in ttie funeral urn—
What kind, good sir, have you 1
Rank Foolishness.
You occassionally see it stated that
colds do not result from cold weather.
That is rank foolishness. Were it true
colds would be as prevalent in mid
summer as in mid-winter. The microbe
that causes colds flourishes in damp,
cold weather. To get rid of a cold
take Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. It
is effectual and is highly recommend
ed by people who have used it for many
years as occasion required, and know
its real value. Obtainable everywhere.
RECIPE FOR GRAY HAIR.
To half pint of water add 1 oz. Bay
Rum, a small box of Barbo Compound,
and Vi oz. of glycerine. Apply to the hair
twice a week until it becomes the desired
shade. Any druggist can put this up or
you can mix It at home at very little cost.
Full directions for making and use come
in each box of Barbo Compound. It will
gradually darken streaked, faded gray
hair, and removes dandruff. It Is excel
lent for falling hair and will make harsh
hair soft and glossy. It will not color the
scalp, is not sticky or greasy, and does not
rub off.

NOW IS BEET SUGAR'S HOUR
{12 in California and one in Montana;
Sixty-five beet sugar factories in vari
ous parts of the United States in 1914
produced $62,605,209 worth of sugar
and byproducts. Four of these plants
were located in Idaho, seven in Utah,
Cnnunei
but none in Washington or Oregon,
according to the census bureau's sum
mary of the report of the department
of commerce, Washington, 1). C., which
has just been issued.
The industrial und agricultural com
mittees of the Spokane Chamber of |
' trying to interest capital ;
in reopening the old Corbin factory for
the manufacture of licet sugar at
Waverly, Wash., which closed several
years ago on account of lack of beets.
This"Tiicjftidn, it is argued, is ideal
for the industry. Waldo G. Paine of
the Inland Empire railway, has assur
ed the committees that rates of the
utmost reasonableness can be promised
growers of beets from all points with
in a radius of at least 200 miles. Mr.
Paine also calls attention to the fact
that large quantities of dried beet pulp
are shipped into this territory from
points as far away as Colorado and
that use of it as food for stock in
creases all the time. Such pulp would
be one of the principal productions
of a beet sugar factory.
The beauty of growing beets is that
land may be used at high profit that
is unavailable for almost anything
else. This use would throw open a
new field to farmers who now raise
wheat only. Orchard growers would
also be vitally interested, as sugar
beets would be a fine opportunity to
use every inch of ground uot taken
up by trees and would add to rather
than detract from the fertility of the
soil for apple growing.
President Wilson appears to have
ommitted himself to a scientific tariff
and a reasonable protection of from
$15 to $20 a ton on sugar. It would
appear that on account of the present
high prices the present is an oppor
tune time for a beet sugar manufac
turer.
WHO'S MAYOR?
The supreme court of the state of
Idaho will be called upon to decide
who is mayor of Idaho Falls and just
whether Edgiugtou or Clark is entit
led to that honor. The suit before the
highest court of the state is the appeal
taken from the district court, the case
being entitled W. W. Huffaker vs.
George W. Edgington.
Attorney W. P. Hanson of Idaho
Falls, attorney for the Citizens' party
of which Mr. Huffaker was and is
chairman, is the attorney representing
the Citizens' party, of which Clark
was the candidate for mayor. The
brief filed with the court will bo to
the effect that Edgington is not entitled
to the nine votes which he received in
excess of the votes cast for Clark for
the reason that in the first ward a
number of illegal votes were cast.

LAND BOARD AND STOCKMEN

The land board, sheep and stockmen

law and the use of stock range for

I of the conference and James E. Clin

on their respective demands and so re
ported to the land board.
Will Make No Leases
After hearing the report the board
passed a resolution to the effect that
between now and April 22 no leases
will be entered into for state land with
either the sheep or stockmen. By tak
ing this action neither side is given an
advantage and the issue can rest until
the next conference takes place. Aside
from the conflict as outlined there is
no other serious conflict with regard
to the proposed rules which the land
board proposes to adopt ami put into
effect.
Prior to the next conference with the
land board the leasing issue will be
discussed fully by all sheep and stock -
men. At the conference yesterday
when it was suggested that the sheep
and stockmen get together and arbi
trate, there was Considerable good na
turell feeling exhibited, but it was
plainly evident that both would stand
on what they consider their rights in
the matter of using the state lands for
grazing purposes. The sheepmen
seemed to recognize that in time they
are doomed to be shut off the range
they held for so many years due to the
rapidly settling of the dry farm lands.
In fact Governor Alexander pointed
this out to the sheepmen when he urg
ed that they get together as citizens,
representative of all the state, and not
' as representing their own individual
interests, so that an agreement satis
factory to all could be reached.
Are Against Two Mile Limit
The sheepmen pointed out that the
two mile limit law is working out as
an injustice to their industry because
of the settlement of even the remote
dry farms hero and there over the
former open range, shutting it oft' from
them because they cannot approach
within two miles of such farm lands to
graze their sheep but must keep them
moving. They are for the repeal of
the two mile limit law. The stockmen
demonstrated in their argument they
are just as determined the statute shall
remain in force.
The small stockmen made a showing
to the board they were entitled to some
rights and that the range should not
be shut off from them altogether. They
argued that unless there are rigid rules
put in effect by the land board this
will be the case. At the conference of
the sheep and stockmen the issues of
all concerned were discussed at length
but it was evident after the discussion
had gone on some time there was no
prospect of an agreement being reach
'd.'—Capital News.
