Watch Inspector when divided by THE EILO A NECESSITY How shall we make our high priced land pay a good interest on the money invested? This is the problem that con fronts many of the farmers of Idaho 'and the solution must be found in in tensified farming, soil improvement and a study of feeds and feeding. The silo makes intensified farming possible through the fact that more live stock can lie raised and fed, and the soil enriched, through the list* of ma nure. The silo not only increases the farm income, but decreases farm labor. In those sections of southern Idaho where sand and gravel can be had for the hauling, it seems that the concrete silo is the most practical. It is" air tight, permanent, durable, wind and fire proof. Concrete grows tougher with age, outlasting almost every other known material. The first cost is the one big thing that stands before the prospective silo builder; however, the silo has proven the best investment tlmt a farmer, can make. The cost is small the number of years that the silo will do service and in many eases, it pays for itself the first year. The silo is no longer an experiment That silage is one of the best feeds that can be had, is a conceded fact. The addition of silage makes a better balanced ration,* insures better health, a larger milk flow, and in beef cattle a more rapid increase in weight. It lowers the cost of butter fat from 5 to S cents per pound, and beef production from $1.00 to $1.50 per one hundred pounds. It enables the farmer to pro duce a larger tonnage at a smaller cost, economizes on labor and storage space, and makes possible the maintenance of a larger herd for the number of acres. F. L. WILLIAMS, County Agent of Ada County. FUGATE SHOULD BE RE NOMINATED AND ELECTED Whether or not Col. M. A. Fugate shall continue to serve the people of the south end of the county in the capacity of a member of the board of county commissioners for the next two years will largely depend upon the support given him in the primary election to be held on Tuesday, September 5. For this reason it behooves the col onel's friends in the lower end of the county to make every effort in his be half in the interval before the primary Every voter entitled to cast a ballot in the republiean primary should make sure of his registration at once and make use of his privilege on that date. All registration books will close Saturday, August 5, and only ten days remain. Opposition to the nomination of Col. Fugate is strong among the leaders of his party in the upper end of the dis trict and his friends in Rich, Spring field, Sterling and Aberdeen precincts must cast every available vote to se cure his nomination. That Col. Fugate has been an efficient member of the county board and that the lower end of his district has been properly cared for everyone who is fa miliar with the situation will agree nnd li nt he should be renominated and reelected is the urgent demand of the Miters of all parties in this end of the district. Democrats and progressives in the precincts above named will vote for him in the general election but of course Ibcv have no voice in the primary. This is the reason wiry every republican should make sure of bis registration and cast his vote at the primary. The eol oncl will need every vote he can get on this occasion. All of his friends should get busy and keep it up until September 5.—Aberdeen Times. SPEAK A GOOD WORD When the stranger enters your gate, speak a good word for your town, for your neighbors, for the community. I* It is but little for you to do, but it ! is rich in the fruits of after years, i A community is judged by the words and the acts of its people, and we of ! this community arc judged by others j in like manner. ' If the hearts of our people are warin | ed by the fires of comradeship and of I brotherly love our nets will be in aeeord ' with our feelings, and the world will know us as a community of honor und ! integrity, as a people with a soul, as I a place worthy of a future. But if we loose the floodgates of 1 criticism and abuse and lielittle the community and its people, then in time we will descend to a level which we crcntc for ourselves, and the world will know us ns a people whom it is well to lot alone. ; Every day vve are adding new rungs I to the community ladder, but are they going up—OR DOWN ! &peak a good word, brother—speak a good word!

The managers of the railroads, as trustees for the public, have no right to place this burden on the cost of transportation to you without a clear mandate from a public tri bunal speaking for you. The railroads have proposed the settle ment of this controversy either under the existing national arbitration law, or by refer ence to the Interstate Commerce Commis sion. This offer has been refused by the employes' representatives. Shall a nation-wide strike or an investigation under the Gov ernment determine this issue?

STILL TONGUES AMD OTHERS There is an old saying that a still tongue makes a wise head, but there are times when the tongue should work for the public good. Candidates no- oubli,- «(>*•■•* some times imagine that a sphyux-like atti tude inspires public confidence. It does not. The people have a right to know where every candidate stands on every question upon which he can exert the slightest influence while in public office. Sonic candidates understand this and are quick to explain their attitudes to the voters. Usually they are successful nt the polls, if their views an* in liar- | nionv with the welfare of the voters of their districts. j Others are-"mum as an oyster," dur ing the campaign, on all vital subjects, but tnlk loudly about nothing, and ex- j pent the voters to support them on faith or friendship alone. They deserve to hold the bag, and they usually do. The American voter of today goes through life on his own brain, and he! isn't giving the fruits of that brain for j the benefit of nnv candidate who fears to take him into hi- confidence on pub- | lie matters. Let the candidate- speak. The public . is readv to listen. (letting married is the easiest thing in the world. All that is required is a : girl, a man, a preacher, a license and a little nerve.

Utah-Idaho Sugar ABSOLUTELY PURE We have been reading a lot about those man eating sharks that suddenly appeared along the Atlantic coast and frightened the bathers from the water. But we note, without surprise, that not a chirp was vouchsafed regarding the two-legged sharks that infest bathing beaches and devour the young girls who daily fall into their clutches. But, then, the two-legged shark is socially, politic ally and financially powerful and it would be extremely discourteous and unwise to disturb him in the enjoyment of his 'innocent pastime." A shark is a shark, but his status is qualified by the breed. A few months ago we were peeved at the cold weather and were wishing that summer would hurry along.
