Although the result of the game stood 9 to 7 in favor of Black foot, the teams were evenly matched and until Mervin Thomas made a drop kick as a final play, the game had scored for Idaho Falls. There were several minor acidents, Tom Bucklin of Idaho Falls carrying home the most serious, a bad back. After dinner at the hotel the two High Schools were the guests of Miss Margaret Dubois at her home on South Main. Two hundred and fifty guests soon drew around the huge bonfire and the order of the day was "Yell." This they proceeded to do as only high school boys and girls know how. They were then invited to cool their parched throats at the punch bowls in the dining room and library. Mrs. Vincent, assisted by the Idaho Falls girls, and Mrs. P. Powers assisted by Blackfoot boys, presided. Cake, popcorn and apples disappeared like dew. Miss Barron at the piano fur nished music for dancing and the fun and frolic lasted until train time, when the merry kindly feeling of .fel lowship ended in farewell yells.

The First National Bank, Blackfoot, Idaho IDAHO FALLS LOSES GAME TO BLACKFOOT The sun had set beftind the distant mountains and lamplighters were busy lighting their lamps. A long shrill whistle was heard on the grid iron, a momentary silence from a great throng; faintly, in the far approaching darkness twenty-two dusky individuals could be seen to cease their struggles, they parted, eleven going to friends on one side of the field and eleven to friends on the other side. The whis tle was sounding the knell of the end of the Idaho Falls-Blackfoot football game and the two teams of eleven making their way to friends were the victor and vanquished. Hardly were the echoes of that W'his tle stilled when 300 wearers of the red and white burst forth in a frenzy of joy. Their team had won. Defeated but not discouraged or down-hearted the great throng of Idaho Falls rooters rallied around their team and cheered them as loudly as if they had won. It was a remarkable exhibition of loyalty and such that even Blackfoot wondered at it. The orange and black had been defeated it was true, but out-played. It is a sad story to re late. Hardly had the game started when Dame Fortune, viewing the contest from her throne on high, cast her for tunes with Blackfoot. Capt. Bloin quist of Blackfoot won the toss and chose to defend the south goal with the advantage of having a blinding sun at his back. The kick off went to the goal line and Wackerli was downed on his ten yard line. A mix up in signals and the ball was thrown behind the goal line. Big Stephens (Bacon) of Blackfoot spied it lying there and without waiting for orders pounced upon the oral as though it were a gold nugget. Slowly Idaho A touchdown and six points had been given to Blackfoot. The -try at goal was missed. Not discouraged by this bit of mis fortune the local team came back fighting harder than- ever. From the great crowd of rooters came the plea to fight to win, to beat Blackfoot. And the team did play hard to win for they knew that to score a touchdown and then to kick a goal would mean vic tory for them. But Blackfoot was equally determined not to let the Falls beat them and used every means to keep safe the margin they had received from the Idaho Falls team. But there was more misfortune in store for the orange and black. Out of the tangle of players came "Tommy" Bucklin, sturdy right end for Idaho Falls, lioss de-combat. Eddy went in for Buck lin. The teams see-sawed up and down and across the field and wlieu the half was up the score was Blackfoot 6; Idaho Falls 0. During the halves the rival rooters UNOFFICIAL PARTIAL ELECTION RETURNS that he had a majority of about 800. The largest vote cast in Bingham county since division gave Davis, the Republican candidate for governor a majority of about 160, and the Republi can candidates and state ticket gen erally a majority of between 160 and 500. Wilson got a majority of about 200. Senator Thomas was re-elected by about 170 majority, and Representa tive Peter G. Johnson got a majority of about 140. Wilford N. Christensen, Republican, and W. C. Sollenberger, Democrat, for commissioner, were elected by good majorities, and the vote is so close betw-een Jed Taylor and F. T. Halverson for commissioner that the winner will not be known until the official count, which is now progress ing, shall have been completed. B. Harvey Allred, H. Andrew Benson and James Young, Democratic candidates for representative, assessor and survey or, received majority votes. Grace Faulconer, Republican, for school su perintendent, got a majority of about exchanged songs and yells. There was determination in every member of the Idaho Falls eleven as they took the field for the second half. Imagine the joy in the hearts of the orange and black rooters when Wackerli took one of Blackfoot's punts and ran for a touchdown. It was a wonderful run that "Wack" made, sixty-five yards, through, the whole Blackfoot team. This tied the score and everyone held their breath while Payne -set # the ball in Capt. Shuttle worth's hands for the try at goal. The angle was a difficult one to kick from, although the ball had been ' ' kicked out for a better position to try for the goal. True as a die the ball sailed between the uprights. The Idaho Falls crowd run riot on the field, dancing, yelling and cheering. Score, Blackfoot 6; Idaho Falls 7. With this one point margin the local eleven played safe, but in the last quarter, quarter back Thomas of Blackfoot, dropped back on the twenty five yard line and. drop-kicked the ball over the goal for three points. This made the score Blaekfoot. 9; Ida ho Falls 7. There was still a ehance for the locals, they had not "opened up" any of their trick plays and with five minutes yet to play every mem l)e1, of the team put forth his best ef ORPHE UM THEATRE MONDAY AND TUESDAY November 13 and 14 VICE AT YOUR VERY DOOR STEP.

At 1 oc'clock the commissioners had canvassed the county vote with the exceptions of Shelley, Rich and Basalt precincts, which had not yet arrived. From present indications Halverson has beaten Taylor for commissioner, which makes two Democratic solons. The Democrats have also elected a rep resentative, the assessor and surveyor. * Up to the time of going to press the election of Hughes was very dubious, as was alBO the election of the govern or, but Davis this morning sent word forts. In four downs the ball was car ried to the Blackfoot twenty-five yard line. It was getting dark fast. Wack erli was called back for a try at goal from drop kick formation. It was a hard kick, the ball never rising from the ground. The last chance to de feat Blackfoot was gone. Time was called shortly after with Blackfoot in possession of the ball on their twenty yard line. During the last quarter of the second half "Percy" Finley was slightly in jured and "Red" Randall took his place. The line up was as follows: Idaho Falls—Bucklin and Eddy right end; Shuttleworth (capt.) right tackle; Jeffry, right guard; Thomas, center; left tackle; Payne, left end; Sauter, quarter back; Wackerli, full back; Hutchinson, left half back; Anderson, right half back.

RICH, NOFEAR DAVIS, . Stake Presidency YORK OAR CAPSIZES Last Sunday afternoon the Brice York family met with a most terrify ing experience, yet all escaped without injury. A party of six ,three grown persons and three children were on their way from Blackfoot to their ranch here. The roads were a little slippery and in making the turn to go onto the bridge over the big canal near Alex Vaughn's, struck a little high, then swung back and went over the lowerside of the bridge with atl its passengers. Fortunately there was only about a foot of water in the canal and as the car lay peacefully on its side all were able to wade to safety. That particular bridge has been a menace to every motorist in this lo cality, being a long span and a bad angle, and some day some one is going over it for the last time, that is, over the soutfi edge of it. BAZAAR On the Saturday of stake conference a scrap bag bazaar will be conducted by the stake board members of the Y. L. M. T. A. in the north rooms of the Blackfoot First Ward Meeting House from 10 a. m. to 5 p. m. There will be no sales during the time of meetings.

The game was replete with thrills and exciting incidents. Blackfoot scored first by intercepting a fumble from the Idaho Falls full back. Capt. Steph ens with his usual faculty of being in the right place scooped up the ball and ran through a broken field for the first score. Thomas missed the goal. It looked like the 6 to 0 would stand as the final score, but luck took a turn and the Tdaho Falls player re ceived a punt and ran 50 vnrds for a touchdown. Wakerlii kicked the goal, making the score 6 to 7 against the home team. Time was drawing near to a close and desperate offensive work on the part of Blackfoot characterized the remainder of the play, while de fensive work of no less desperation the order of the Idaho Falls captain. The ball see-sawed back and forth for several minutes, often Blackfoot would almost reach the coveted goal, only to bo held for downs. Just before the crowd began to move away with a de jected feeling, the ball was worked down to the Idaho Falls thirty yard line and Thomas fell back for a drop kick. It was a last effort and th« game depended upon it. True as an arrow the ball sailed over the bar for the count of three and the game was won. Idaho Falls had fought a game battle, but could not overcome the lead in the few moments left. Thom as, Louis Stephens and Taylor played star games for Blackfoot while Waker lii was half the Idaho Falls team both on offensive and defense. Overineyer and Marlowe officiated in fine shape. Blackfoot now has the chance to play Twin Falls for the championship of Southern Idaho. This game will be Nov. 17th, at Twin Falls.
