To the Honorable Board of County Commissioners of Bingham County, Idaho, and the Honorable Board of Commissioners of Aberdeen Highway District Gentlemen : We. the duly appointed, qualified and acting accountants representing the Aberdeen Highway District «and Bing ham County, respectively, come now to render our report on this 11th day of June, 1H21. of financial «aff.airs of Bing ham County, as they relate to Aber deen Highway District of said county. 1. That the Aberdeen Highway Dis trict was organized and designated on March 1, 1921. That for the purpose of this report the balances in the var ious funds are taken from the Audi tor's Financial Renort which is duly verified and of record in the Auditor's office of Bingham County, as well as in the Auditor's office of iho State of Idaho, and is dated January S, 11)21. That the interim from January S, to June 11. 1921. of all funds «accruing, or which have been paid from said funds lias been taken into considera Here's why CAMELS are the quality cigarette llECAUSE we put the utmost quality into this one brand. Camels are as good as it's pos sible for skill, money and lifelong knowledge of fine tobaccos to make a cigarette. Nothing is too good for Camels. And bear this in mind! Everything is done to make Camels the best cigarette it's possible to buy. Nothing is done simply for show. Take the Camel package for instance. It's the most perfect packing science can devise to pro tect cigarettes and keep them fresh. Heavy paper —secure foil wrapping—revenue stamp to seal the fold and make the package air-tight. But there's nothing flashy about it. You'll find no extra wrappers. No frills or furbelows. Such things do not improve the smoke any more than premiums or coupons. And remember—ypu must pay their extra cost or get lowered quality. If you want the smoothest, mellowest, mildest cigarette you can imagine—and one entirely free from cigaretty aftertaste, It's Camels for you. <9> & TURKISH & DOMESTIC 'A ' C i c • S H R. J.

That for the purpose of deter mining Aberdeen Highway District's share of the various funds, or the in debtedness in the various funds of Bingham County, we find that the as sessed valuation of Bingh.am County for the year 1920, as it appears in the Auditor's Financial report of said coun ty, dated January s, 1921, amounts to $17,497,740.39. 3. We find the assessed valuation within the confines of the Aberdeen Highway District for the year 1920, amounts to $1,711,740.60, or 10.222 per cent of the whole amount assessed in the county for the year 1920. The Aberdeen Highway District's share would be 95 per cent of the amount raised, by applying 10.222 per cent to any given amount.

To have the pains and aches of a bad back removed—to be entirely free from annoying, dangerous urin ary disorders, is enough to make any kidney sufferer grateful. The fol lowing alvlce of one who has suffered will prove helpful to hundreds of Rlackfoot readers: Mrs. Jennie Bw'lamy, 74 S. E. Main St., Blackfoot, says: "I have used Doan's Kidney Bills and always been pleased wIBh the results. When I have had any backache and when my kidneys have acted Irregularly, I have used them. I bought Doan's Kidney Bills at Bowers' Pharmacy, and they have always given me the desired relief. They are a splendid remedy." Price 00c, at all dealers. Don't simply ask for a kidney remedy—get Doan's Kidney Bills—the same that Mrs. Bellamy had. Fostor-Mllburn Co., Mfrs.. Buffalo, N. Y.
