The features of the game were Con ger's quick work in the first, with Lehrbas on first Kirkendahl attempted to bunt, Conger coming in on the run expecting the play, too Kirken dahl's attempted bunt in the air, throwing out Lehrbas at first, mak ing a very pretty double play. Morey's exceptionally fine showing on second was another feature of the game, with nine chance he is credited with one bobble, which was not at all costly, and twice he stabbed balls out of the air with one hand, cutting off several that should have gone for hits. Brewer was the idol of the fans, when in the seventh, after Bell was safe on an error, and Howard had singled, filling both second and third, BLACKFOOT 14; REXBURG O. The locals took into camp Decora tion Day what was supposed to be a fast aggregation of ball players, but poor pitching and poor fielding was the cause of their downfall. Nine walks, six errors and ten hits netted the Blackfoot team fourteen runs. Felt was in the usual good form and held the Rexburg hitters to three run expecting the play, took Kirken-, 0 Heath one. In five of the nine in nings but three men faced him.

Once he was trim as you are, as he follered the dear old plow; but he found a digestion somewhere, and jee miny, look at him now! Moppin' his brow unceasin' till his visage is fiery red,— his ponderous heft increasin' he's big as a feather bed!

AL CARE AND DISEASE CON TROL OF CHILDREN. Dr. Hedger, of thl Elizabeth Me morial Hospital, which is a hospital for children, will t^lk to Bingham County parents on June 13. The place for the meeting will be arranged and advertised in the near future. Dr. Hedger Is a child specialist of special merit, having been in the work for many years. St^e has addressed the mothers of Utah many times, and Idaho is fortunate lhaeed to have the opportunity of hearing her. Black foot is especially favored in securing her visit here and if is only through the perseverance of Miss Alice M. Smith, the District vtome Demonstra tion Agent, that she was induced to come to Blackfoot. Miss Smith has been in Blackfoot to hold several meetings with the Bingham County women and she real izes that Bingham County is wide awake. For this reason she hea brought to us a specialist who can give valuable information in the feed ing. clothing and general care of children, and the control of children's diseases. Anyone interested in seeing their children given an opportunity to be come healthy and Efficient men and women should attend the meeting without fail. Remember, June 13th at 1:30 p. m. This is a time when farmers need life Insurance, but the premium la hard to get at this time of the year. Many times agents travel the country and take notes due in the fall for the premium and many times the farmer cannot meet the n^te. Beebe has a credit system where no notes are giv en and no interest charged. For in stance, suppose a man aged 35 wants $10,000 of life insurance and has not the money now and does not want to give a note or pay any interest, here is what Beebe will do: Suppose the farmer figures that In 100 days he can pay his premium. He pays Beebe $28.28 on a $10,000 policy for 100 days. At the end of the l(j0 days, it he does not want to pay the annual premium he paya $94.20 for 120 more days; other ages and amounts in proportion. If 100 days is not enough he can take any number of dajL (not over 364) and pay cash in advance of $2.83 pet 1 100 days or $.0283 for each day per $1000, There is absolutely no excuse for any man to b«i without life In surance on these terms. Beebe does not tie you up in a note, for if you don't want the insurance he does not want you to have It. After one gets a Beebe policy there Is no excuse for lapsing It.—adv. it AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENT. An automobile accident occurred this morning, when a big Studebaker Six automobile driven by H. J. Bryne of Pocatello, turned turtle, and lay on its side in the middle of the road. Three negro womei^ were In the car at the time of the accident, and were brought In to the Blackfoot hospital, where Dr. Mitchell treated them. Only one of the women was very badly bruised, and several stitches' were taken in one of her ears. The acci dent was very lucky for the people in the car, that nobody lost their life. The car was prettjr badly damaged. Just how the accident happened Mr. Bryne was unable t(> say. but thought it was due to a defect in the steering apparatus. Mrs. Wm.
