XIV, NO. 49 mom people CELEBRITE IN BLACKFOOT AND ENJOY THE THE PLEASURES OFFERED THE MANY VISITORS. LAR6EST CROWD IN HISTORY AT A CELEBRATION OF ANY KIND IN THE CITY OF BLACKFOOT. Fully 10,000 people celebrated the Fourth of July in Blackfoot, and the celebration will go down in history as the largest, best organized and the most orderly ever held in this city. The morning sun was quite hot but nevertheless a large crowd gathered to witness one of the best Fourth of J.iily parades ever witnessed, both in numbers and for beauty. The prizes were awarded as follows by the committee composed of Rev. J. D. Gillilan, President James Duck worth and Rev. R. S. Stringfellow: Merchants Floats- First National Bank, first; Neil F. Boyle Hardware Co., second; Nugent Metal Works, third. Lodge Floats—Elk's first; W. O. W. second; Royal Neighbors, third. Best dressed Float—War Mothers, Boy Scouts, M. I. A. Troup L. E. Woodruff Scoutmaster $10. Troop No. 4 LeRoy Jones, Scoutmaster, $10. Campfire Girls, Mrs. E. W. Whit comb, Guardian, $10. Beehive Girls, Direction of Mrs. John Bitton, Riverside, $5. Mrs. Morris, cow girl, $5 Seven Indians, in full war regalia $3 each. The First National Bank float was one of the very prettiest ever seen, as well as the most appropriate for the occasion, being built like a bell to represent the Liberty bell, with a minute man in the person of Mrs. E. E. Kotke riding in front and George and Martha Washington riding on the back impersonated by Miss Eliz abeth Kennedy and Barbara Webb. The liberty bell was rung as the float moved through the streets in the parade. The awarding of first prize for the best decorated float to the War Mo thers,met with the general favor and sentiment of the public who were very high in their praise of this float. The float was designed by Mrs. Frank DeKay, State War Mo ther, who was assisted in decorating by Mrs. M. N. Austin and Mrs. Jas. Young. The car had a large gold star for each ex-service man who paid the supreme sacrifice. The dove of peace hovered protectingly on the canopy over the four Gold Star Mo thers who rode on the float. These four Gold Star Mothers were: Mrs. John Firth, of Firth, who represent ed the north end of the county, Mrs. Walters, of Thomas who repre sented the west end of the county, Mrs. Bible who represented the un known Dead and Mrs. George Davis of Blackfoot who sent three sons to France one of whom paid the su preme sacrifice. Space does not permit us to take up each individual float separately, but altogether it was a wonderful parade, due to Chairman L. B. White and his corp of assistants. Following the parade, exercises were held at the Tabernacle, with Cecil Clarke as chairman. Rev. Gillilan gave the benediction. Mrs. \;Tames Ryan was chairman of the Music Committee which consisted of Community singing under the direc tion of Miss Anna Burgraff; singing by the Boy Scout chorus, vocal solo bÿ C. E. Jackson and a song by the Shelley quartette. At one o'clock the sports Commit tee headed by E. L. Anderson opened their program in front of the grand stand at the Fair Grounds, which in cluded races of all kinds, after which the ball game between the Pocatello Indians and Blackfoot was played which resulted in a 4 to 2 score for Pocatello. This was in turn follow ed by the horse races of which the one that caused the most fun was the slow race. The fireworks at night drew an ex tra large crowd who were very en thusiastic in their praise of the bea utiful display. Dancing on the pavement on Main street started early in the evening, and was adjourned to the American Legion hall, where the Pocatello band furnished excellent music.

SAY FARMERS IRRIGATION ASSN SECRETARY WISHES TO GET IN TOUt H W ITH CANAL COMPAN IES WISHING WATER. Idaho Falls, June 17th, 1922. Arthur Manwaring. Director, Blackfoot. Idaho. Dear Sir:— At a special meeting of the direc tors of the Farmers Irrigation Asso ciation, held on the above date, the following recommendations were made to Canal Companies desiring storage in the American Falls Reser vior : After making a thorough investiga tion and getting the advice from sev eral attorneys, we have decided that it Is not a safe proposition to join the proposed large Irrigation Dis trict, including the Twin Falls coun try and all the Canal Companies In the Upper Snake River Valley desir ing stored water. We advise Canal Companies desir ing stored water to secure it now in the American Falls Reservoir and ex change it tor water In Jackson Lake, as that seems to be the only way at the present time to secure storage, and those securing water in Jackson Lake will have the best water right on the river. We thtnk Canal Companies not now in an Irrigation District, desiring water In the American Falls Reser voir, can secure the money to finance them in several ways without Join ing the large Irrigation District. First by direct taxation; Second by mortgaging their Canal Systems; Third by forming an Irrigation Dis trict out of their Canal, and fourth by forming a large Irrigation Dis trict made up of all the canals from Blackfoot up the valley. Please write to the Secretary and state the plan you propose to use, so that the Association can help you if necessary In your work. JOHN LEE, Secretary, Farmers Protective Ir rigation Association, Idaho Falla, Idaho. Prshiatorle Cemeteries. Warren K. Moorehend, archeologist of Phillips academy, Andover, Mas*., has unearthed three- cemeteries, 92 skeletons, 23 funeral urns end count less small art object* of prehistoric residents of that section in the Caho kia mounds near Bust St. Louis, 111. Professor Mooreheed is doing research work under the direction of the Uni versity of minois. This discovery tends to substantiate the theory that the mounds are of hu man construction, rather titan natural hills, it was said, At the base of one mound a large altar was found, and Professor Moorehead explained it was customary for the "mound builders'' in other sections of the Mississippi valley to cover over the altars, after they had served their usefulness, to greut heights—hence the mounds. Indications of an effort to smelt lead were found In one mound, the pro fessor explained. A smelter of baked day, In the form of a semi-circle, was discovered, and beside it chunks of lead. Near it was a vessel in the shape of a modern chemist's crucible. Going to Try It Again. Five-year-old Mary Jane had a pet bantam hen. Recently the latter hutched six little chickens, but she proved herself to be an unnatural mother and wouldn't take care of them. The family was provoked and Mary Jane's father threatened to sell the hen If she didn't take care of the chickens. That brought Mary Jane t* strategy. That evening when her fa ther came home she was waiting for him. "Where's your hen?" he demanded. "Is she caring for her chickens?*' "Oh, no." Mary Jane was very seri ous. "She's in the hen coop getting ready to lay some more eggs to hatch some more chickens." Compared to the universe, we are a lot of germs living on an atom. Whjr not behave?
