XV. NO. 38 LOCAL ARTISTS ATTRACT NOTICE Several Students of Blackfoot Schools Rank High in Anti-Tuberculosis Drawing Contest The hundreds of splendid health ■posters from all over the state pre sented quite a problem for the judges ■who "were selected to choose the winners in the health poster contest iconducted by the Idaho Anti-Tutoer culosis association. These posters were on exhibit in windows ot' the Mode stare, Boise, for a week, and drew much favorable comment. The stiate parent-teacher meeting at Nampa also had an opportunity of viewing many of the posters, and great surprise was expressed at the work of the Idaho children in the disiplay -of artistic ability, original ity of design, and application of health ideas. Many beautiful draw ings and paintings were received which did not conform strictly to the poster qualifications. Beside the winners, those attracting much at tention were a pen drawing by Kath ryn L. Healy of Roberts, splendid crayon work by the pupils of the deaf and blind school at Gooding, and an unusual freehand cutting .by little Miss Cleo Wilson, age 8, of Blackfoot. A freehand drawing of "The Six Best Doctors," executed by Miss Mabel Bennett of Blackfoot high school, has, by urgent request, become the property of Dr. Almond, medical adviser of the state depart ment of Public Welfare and will be seen framed, on the wall of Dr. Al mond's office at the state house..

TWINS ER VICTORY Last Sunday's Game With Rigby Places Blackfoot One Notch Near er League Championship. Blackfoot people are indeed be coming proud of their 1921 base ball team, as out of the seven games they have played they have won six. Last Sunday's game with Rigby added one more count to their score, and placed them a little nearer the final cham pionship of the Idaho Independent League for the season. Rigby failed to score once in any of the nine inn ings. while Blackfoot had five men who scored—lThor,sten|berg, Owens, Conger, Thompson and Eppling. Fol ey pitched for Blackfoot, Vaught having left the team, and Garvin umpired the game. There was a good attendance of local people, and a number came from Rigby with their team.

The average citizen has some knowledge of lyceums and chautau quas, but he little realizes what they amount to in the life of thiä nation. Officially collected figures for the year 1920 present an astonishing to tal of effort put forth by these forces of popular education. There is no state in the Union without lyceums and chautauquas. Between 10,000 and 15,000 lyceums were in being the last year, with an aggregate attend ance of over ten millions, and 8,581 chautauquas were reported, with an aggregate attendance of 35,449,750. About one-thinrd of the aggregate attendance in each case is said to represent different Individuals. An Invariable increase In business dur ing 1920 Is reported, and a greater increase in sight for the coming year. And what is of equal import ance are reports of a steady demand to keep up and improve the quality of the instruction or edification giv en. One of the hopeful things in life is that if you can get to know people you generally like them. Chautau qua in a great degree, apd the ly ceum in a lesser, brings people to know other people. Especially does Chautauqua gain a harvest in this way by having Chautauquas for chil dren—a wise provision for a better America by and by. Another hopo ful thing is the avid way students at lyceums and chautauquas absorb and revel in the expert explanation of an unfamiliar subject. The war, with its flood of lectures explaining what we had to do for our country and what other countries were do ing to us. has left its influence on our people and enlarged the view of the average woman and man, so as to include the world and its problems and people beyond our waters. The Lyceum-Chautauqua, or pop ular lecture, is an American institu tion. It is the university of the .peo ple. TAKEN TO PENITENTIARY Last Saturday a sentence of from one to three years was imposed upon Louis Sayko, who was convicted of marrying another man's wife. On Sunday, he with two other convicts, were taken to the state penitentiary at Boise, by a deputy warden of that institution. The other two convicts were Frank Harris, sentenced to from one to fourteen years for grand larceny, and John Lyons, sentenced to from one to fifteen years for burglary. A pretty home wedding took place Saturday evening at eight o'clock at the home of Mr. and Mrs. George Jolley, when their daughter, Eva, became the wife of Leslie Andrew, of Rose, Bishop Jeppson of the first ward performing the ceremony. On ly the family and a few friends were present, and George Waring and Margaret Andrew, sister of the groom, were best man and lady. Af ter the ceremony dinner was served. i J j j ! j I ; ; 1 cc Only One Ada Roach This Is Familiar Saying About Noted Entertainer Who Comes to Chautauqua With Ruth Freeman 99 r> "Only one Ada Roach" has grown to be n familiar saying in the Chau tauqua world. This inimitable entertainer has truly reached the top round In her profession. When Ada Ronch smiles, every one smiles with her; when she sings, every heart sings with her ; her stories and Impersonations have the sparkle of true genius. Ruth Freeman, "running mate" with Ada Roach for years, is abundantly able to present n complete program alone. She combines real talent as a violinist with exceptional ability and as an unusual artist In mimicry and dialect numbers.

YEARLINGS AND CATTLE STEADY—HOGS SHADE HIGHER Good to choice yearlings medium and handy weight killing cattle were steady and there was a slightly im proved tone in tthe better classes of stockers and feeders. Plain killing and heavy steers were 15 to 25 cents lower. Hogs were in active demand at strong to 10 cents higher prices. Lambs were strong to 25 cents high er, and sheep steady to strong. Today's Receipts Receipts today were 12,000 cattle. 12,500 hogs, 9000 sheep, compared with 7500 cattle, 7000 hogs, and 7, 000 sheep a week ago, and 10,600 ■cattle, 11,100 hogs and 7250 sheep a year ago. Beef Cattle Killers continued to show a prefer ence for the good to choice yearlings, handy and medium weight steers at steady prices. Heavy, especially rough, heavy grades, sold slowly at 15 to 25 cenös lower prices. Some prime handy weight steers brought $8.75, the top price for the day.

Trade was active and an early clearance GETTING INTO A PROFITABLE GAME An Alaskan gold mining company is engaged in remodeling its plant for tlie purpose of manufacturing wood pulp for paper. Profits in gold production are too meagre. On ore the .possible profit is less than a dollar the ton. Profits in paper have risen to as high as $80 a ton. Take a pretty smart gold mine to beat that. Times change. The paper indus try was developed to supply the printing and publishing industry. Along with it grew the modest wrapping paper industry, an admit ted necessity. Wrapping paper was largely made from waste and re-use materials, straw, etc. The use of paper in other lines has increased until now It is said there are 1500 distinct articles manufactured in this country from paper. Of this great output three-fourths of the raw material must come from the same source as that of the newspapers. Box and earton manufacturers use three times the material required for the newspapers. Some genius a few years ago dis covered that there was enough In dian left In the majority of us to pay three prices for our food, drugs, etc., if they were packed in gaudy, ex pensive looking packages. So the .paper situation has conn to be controlled by this big demand, which cares little about the price. While the newspapers struggle fol their very lives, under present prices, tlie consumer continues to buy waste ful packages, and growl about the high cost of living. Cheap paper built this well-known republic—nothing else could have done it. It is dangerous to tamper with the only raw material possible for the printing and publishing in terests. And when we are both murdering the press and paying needlessly high prices for the foolish decoration, it would seem that the fool-killer is overdue. was reported. The top price was $7.60 and bulk of sales $7.25 to j $7.55. The price spread was the] narrowest of the season. Pigs were I quoted steady with sales at $8.00 to' $8.50. Rather plain quality predom inated. More eastern markets were lower, with demand slow. Sheep and Lambs Sheep sold at firm prices and lambs were strong to 25 cents higher. | Most of the offerings were southwest j sheep, and native spring lambs.] Clipped Texas wethers sold at $4.00 , to $4.25 and clipped ewes $3.50 to' $3.75. Spring lambs are quoted at $9.00 to $12.75. Horses and Males Demand for horses and mules re mains quiet with prices unchanged. Receipts are small. CHARLES M. PIPKIN, ! Market Correspondent. The Wednesday game of base ball between Blackfoot and Idaho Falls resulted in a score of 23 to 6 in favor of Idaho Falls. The game is said to have been poorly played by both sides. REVENUE Congressman From Minnesota Makes Distinction Between "Earned" and "Unearned" Incomes. Congressman Oscar E. Keller of the fourth district of Minnesota has introduced into the house four reve nue bills. The first bill repeals all existing transportation and sales taxes ex cept those of tobacco, distilled spir its, oleomarg trine, habit forming drugs and products of child labor. The bill also repeals the excess profit tax and the ten per cent tax on the incomes of t orporations. The second hill amends the income tax law so as to distinguish bet'ween "earned" and "unearned" income. Tlie tax on "unearned" income to gether with the super taxes is retain ed, but the tax on "earned" incomes is cut in two. ''Earned ' income is defined as in come derived from personal services or from business personally conduct ed. "Unearned" income is defined as income derived from rents of land or other property, interest on motgages, notes or bonds, dividends on shares of stock whether in the form of mon ey or stock dividends, and from any source other than from the labor, skill or business or industry person ally conducted by the person receiv ing the income. The third bill amends the inheri tance tax. Beginning with esflates of $20,1)00 to $35,000 there is a tax ot one per cent; $35,000 to $50,000 two per cent; $50,000 to $150,000 four per cent; $150,000 to $250,000 six per cent. Tlie taxes then gradu ate on an increasing scale until the point of $100,000,000 is reached, af ter which the tax is 90 per cent. Tlie fourth bill provides for a tax of one per cent on land values in ex cess of $10,000, after exempting buildings and improvements, and in the case of farms, eost of clearing, and draining and maintenance of fertility. This bill aims to tax monopoly holders of natural resourc es, valuable "sites" in cities and the holding of land out of use. The ex emptions are so applied to farms as to exempt from taxation, according to Mr. Keller's estimate, approxi mately 98 per cent of all actual farmers. The four bills are sponsored by the Committee of Manufacturers and Merchants on Federal Taxation, a national association of business men of which Otto Cullman, 1346 Ait geld Street, Chicago, is chairman; and by the Farmers' Federal Tax League of which Lieut. Gov. George F. Cummings of Madison, Wisconsin, is President. Accompanying the bills Mr. Keller presents a detailed estimate showing that the three bills together with ■customs and other miscellaneous rev enue, would raise funds sufficient to meet the government budget, and in addition, provide a sinking fund which would pay off the government debt in thirty years. In a statement to the press Mr. Keller says, "My revenue program will relieve producing business of $1,730,000,000 annually and the people of from three to five times this amount in inflated living costs." "I am in favor," says Mr. Keller, of the removal of all taxes on busi ness and industry, including the ex cess profit tax and the corporation income tax. but only on condition that my revenue program is accepted in its entirety. If my new revenue bills are rejected 1 will withdraw my amendments repealing the corpora tion taxes."

ASYLUM PATIENT Woman About to be Paroled Drinks Denatured Alcohol With Fatal Results Mrs. Ruby Bridges, aged thirty two, who was committed to the Blackfoot asylum on March 7th this year, being brought from Canyon county, died Tuesday morning from drinking denatured alcohol at noon Monday. The unfortunate woman was thought to be almost recovered, and the management of the asylum was seriously considering the matter of her parole. She was doing house work at the home of Dr. Hoover, and Ln tlie course of her duties she ran across some of the fatal liquid which had been concealed and forgotten by the household. She was ambitious and was allowed to work around at neighbors' houses to earn money. Her husband, who is dying with consumption in New Mexico, kept sending her telegrams to come down there, and it is thought the nature and frequency of his telegrams had greatly delayed her recovery and perhaps worked her up into such a nervous state that she committed suicide. She was the mother of sev eral small children. She found the alcohol In the house and took the bottle to the orchard, where she drank part of its contents. Her moaning aroused the household, und upon approaching tier she asked to he left alone to die. She was taken into the cottage, thence into the asylum and every attention was giv en but without results, and she did nut recover consciousness after ask ing to lie left alone. A pathetic let ter ito a friend was found in tier ap ron pocket, asking lier to come for the children. Mrs. Bridges is origin ally from Kansas. In Caldwell she made three effort« at suicide; by I poison, drowning and by railroad j train. The jury viewed the remains and j heard the testimony of Doctors I Hoover and Eaton. Mrs. Hoover and I Mrs. Saunders, the hospital matron, j read the commitment papers, letters I and itelegrams, and t>he finding of the jury was suicide. Following are the names of the Jurors: Ray Crab tree, Paul L. Kreft. O. L. Rider. Ir win Carter, Jr., H. Dahlstrom, Leroy Black, Sam iLoyd, H. F. Hoffman, W. H. Cherry and J. H. Early. PREVENT FOREST FIRES. Forest fires ln the United States annually destroy more than two bil lion feet of timber, or material enough to build a 5-room house ev ery 100 feet on both sides of a road extending from New York to Chi cago, according to the Forest Service, United States Department of Agri culture. With four people to a house, these 100,000 or more build ings would provide a home for nearly one-fourth our yearly Increase in population—a number sufficient to populate a new city each year the size of Cincinnati, New Orleans, Min neapolis, Kansas City, Mo., or Seattle. More than 160,000 forest fires have occurred in the United States dur ing the past five years, 80 per cent of which were due to human agen cies and therefore preventable. These conflagrations burned over 56,488, 000 acres—an area greater than that included within the States of Ohio and Pennsylvania—and destroyed $85,700,000 worth of timber and property. If this needless waste were stopped and the material thus saved put into houses, the various business interests concerned in build ing construction, such as lumber dealers, carpenters, masons, and sup ply houses, would, it is estimated, ibenefit to the extent of more than $400,000,000 annually. Bankers and real estate dealers wduld also profit through the sale of lands and by loans on homes to the extent of an additional $300,000,000. Tires' (1res are therefore of vital concern to not only the everyday citizens but to ev ery business man and laborer. Forest protection goes hand in hand with national prosperity. Next to food and clothing, wood is the most indispensable product of nature. Without wood there can be no ag riculture. no manufacture, no com merce. Forest fires destroy life and property, impoverish the soil, drive away animal life, cause floods and drought, and make waste the play grounds of the people. Cavalry Troop B will leave Sun day for Boise, with their hrses. sad dles., and boots, for the two weeks encampment. At Pccatello they will be joined by the l:;..p of that place.
