Official Paper of Bingham County PRICE—$2.00 PER TEAR BLACKFOOT, BINGHAM. COUNTY. IDAHO. FRIDAY. APRIL 22, 1921 VOL.. XV, NO. 31 100 MEN ATTEND BEEBE'S BANQUET To some life insurance men, the placing of a policy is much like the sale oif a load of sand or hay; the IbSgger Ithe load the more one gets for it, but there is no soul, no senti ment, no care what one does witlh his plunder once it's paid for. It's honestly so much of a rarity to find a man wrapped up in the soul of his business, that some ician't quite un derstand it. But everyone of Ithe almost 100 guests who attended Beebe's insur ance banquet, Thursday night, knows that with at least one man the placing of insurance is a real labor of love. Wdith an eye on the pitiful stories that come out of the probate counts where men die with out leaving any protection (for widow and children; qhat come from com missioners' courts, where helpless hnd holpelless families come for the aid that the father should have pro vided for in the way of insurance; with the statistics of the aged men and women who fritter away Itheir years of financial productivity and come down to the portals of old age with no resource, no capital but the 'tolerant «Shari t y of those around them—one could really work up a genuine, humane enthusiasm for the investment feature of insurance that offers a sure and easy road ifior al most every one to provide a compe tence for disaster or old age. Beebe does! The address by Mr. Beebe was a really profound study of the neces sity for saving In youth to provide for tlhe inevitable slowing down of earning powers in later life. The guests were all policyholders, but the avowed purpose of the meeting was to impress yelt more deeply on every •one that It iwas a privilege and a duty and an investment to keep up as (large a policy as possible—and never let dt lapse. H. H. Tennyson, from the com pany head office, assistant manager of Agencies for the whode United States, was introduced and gave a most interesting story of the growth and development of (the insurance idea in Amerioa, especially as it re lated to ihis own company. State General Agent, W. R. Wilkerson, of Boise, also gave a good business pre sentation of the benefits of insur ance as an anchor in times of finan cial stress like the present. Fred Seeger, who on his retqent visit to New York was a guest of the general office of the insurance com pany, gave a remarkably clever apeedh. Ht wasn't all insurance, and there s grave doubt as to whether it was scientific history; but there's no doubt of Its interest. Judge Ander sen also made a hit with one Of his famous after-dinner speeches; which was insurance against ithe Ifcllues, if not against sudden death or accident. A substantial and appetizing lundh was served, to which af most 100 guests sat down. The meeTling kept on, and -on, until after 1:00 o' clock, hut the topic of insurance .was so enthralling that hardly a guest left until the general break up. It was a conspicuously success ful evening, of so different a kind from the ordinary that it ought to be set apart. DEDICATION OF TABERNACLE. ^ President James Duckworth of the Blackfoot stake, states that the beautiful new tabernacle will be for mally dedicated on Saturday and Sunday, May 21st and 22nd, at the time of the stake quarterly confer ence. The ceremony wiV- be con ducted with the assistance of some of the leading church authorities, and some of ithe members of the first presidency will be present. It was planned to dedicate tlhe tab ernacle at* an earlier date, but owing to bad weather conditions and other circumstances, the dedication was de ferred until next month. The (build ing is now completely paid for, as well as all the furnishings. Within the past week the finishing touches have been given the inside, built in seats having taken the place of the chairs which were used temporarily, and now everything has been done that was necessary to make it a com plete edifice.

GOOD YEAR—LET'S ENJOY FT. v What Seeger Says About Optimism and Faith in One's Community. If yon wander into a splendid, columed edifice that you didn't know was in town, it's likely to be the Seeger-Bundlie store, after ithe recent renovation. The bare col umns have been paneled up in most attractive manner; a new office has been built at the rear of the store; Fred Seeger has gotten out bis spring smile and it shines like a six caret diamond on a flannel shirt; and in every way the store fairly reeks of optimism. "You see, we believe in Black foot," said Mr. Seeger. "This is a good town, and the people are good, and this will be a good year—we are spending more in our store, for im provements, than we did even in 1920, when things were up to the peak price and money looked like chaff or white chips of dust that you wished would blow away and begone. Your town is what you believe it is —and that's what WE believe of Blackfoot." SHIPPED SIX LOADS OF HOGS. County Agent E. W. Stephens re ports that the Bingham County Farm Bureau, under co-operative ship ment, during last week and tlhe two previous weeks, shipped and sold in all six car loads of hogs.

"PARK TO PARK" HIGHWAY. At the meeting of 'the Commercial Club Thursday evening of last week, a delegation from the Pocatello Commercial Club was present, In cluding J. Robb Brady and ithe chair man. The visitors' mission was to get ithe DlackfooMbusi.ness men Inter ested In an effort to bring about some changes in tihe rou'te of the pro posed notionafl 'ip&rk to park" high way. It is proposed to build this road from Denver norlh through Wyoming and Washington, down through Cunifornia and beck to Den ver. However, the Pocatello boost ers contend that 1t shorn 1 ,d cross the Snake River Valley in Idaho, and enter the Yellowstone N it-ional Park from the west; that a trip over itlhls rouite would be mure interesting .to tourists than to puss over the barren deserts of Wyoming. If this alter ation 'can be made in 'the plans, it will be a material assistance to Ida ho In the construction of her roads in 'this section, as at least fifty per cent o/f all the funds required would come from the federal government, and at some places us mudh as nine ty per cent. The visitors asked that our Com mercial Club appoint a oummit'ee to consider the matter, and .that, later a delegate be sent to a convention to be he'd at one of the interested points, at which delegates would he elected to the final cnovention whiloh will determine 'lie route over which the highway is to be built. The local club considered the line of argument favorably, and acquiesced in the de sires of 'the Pocatello delegation. PASSED BAD CHECKS.

The check in question was given to the Valley Supply company of Aberdeen, and an Aberdeen officer has five otlior checks of 'the same kind issued by 'the same party, but it is not likely prosecutions will be instituted on the ot'her checks, unless after being released the writer of them persists in issuing more chcrks with insufficient funds in the bank. It is said 'that her husband is now serving time in the n oty Jail at Burley for a similar offense. Th%y have four children, one of whom is a little girl five years old. NOTICE TO ADVERTISERS.
