Girls, here's your chance—a real,
live chance—and the mail in the ease
realizing that leap year is about half
over with and no one having taken
recognition of his lonesome condition,
frankly asks that some one help him
out in the matter, and he lias made an
appeal to Carroll 8. Jones, formerly of
Idaho Falls, now of Swan Valley, to
help him out. Mr. Jones lias in turn
appealed to the Register to give notice
to any interested of the condition of
the man, who admits frankly tlint he
wants a wife and needs a wife, and did
lie have a wife lie would he good to
her.
He is frank also in his statement
that one of the reasons tlmt he wants a
wife is that he needs a cook and is
finding it hard to get along without
one. He lives on a dry farm and is
lonesome, and says that lie is willing
to put up with even the cooking of even
an Idaho Falls high school graduate
of the domestic science department, say
ing that would he preferable to having I
to listen all by himself to the lonesome i
howl of the desolnte coyote, which may {
itself be a bachelor coyote.
He is willing that his wife which ho j
hopes to have should own one-half the I
homestead claim and all of the livestock j
which he has worked so hard to ae.eu- I
ululate.
Any interested may notify Carroll S. J
Jones, Swan Valley Commissary, Irwin,'
