The Idaho Publishing Co IDAHO BLACKFOOT Carlyle and Jenny Lind. An audience of some three thousand •*' expensive looking fools, male and fe male, came to see this Swedish night ingale "hop the I wig," as I phrased it. Nothing could exceed my ennui. It was. 1 o'clock when we got home. On the whole I do not desire to hear Lind again, it would not bring me six pence worth of benefit. I think, to hear her sing six months in that kind of material.— From Forster's Reminis cences. To Mend Broken Glass. If you happen to break a glass or valuable glass ornament ft can be ef fectually and easily mended in the fol lowing way: Melt a little isinglass in spirits of wine, add a small quantity of water; warm the mixture gently over a moderate fire. When mixed by thoroughly melting it will form a perfectly transparent glue, which will unite glass so nicely and tirmly that the joint will be scarcely noticed by the most critical eve.

I our When . i Trego's newspaper plant is be ing installed in the new building south of the opera house.— Mail. That Blackfoot is to get another paper is an assured fact. Mr. Trego, of the Mackay Telegraph, is on the ground with his plant and is scheduled to issue the first number of the Idaho Republican on July 22nd. While Mr. Trego I is not an experienced newspaper man, either from a journalistic or mechanical standpoint, he is an enthusustie hustler and a consis tent Republican and will probably makegood in zeal wbat he lacks in experience. | While we are of the opinion that Blackfoot offers no great bonanza for newspapers, an opin ion which is founded largely on our own hard scrabbling to keep our head above water, it may be that our system is at fault, in any case we welcome the "Idaho Re publican" and promise it the best we have in our poor shop. There is much that must be said in favor of the new paper; they certainly propose to stand ou their merrits for patronage, for under a recent law they cannot become a legal paper until they have been published one-year, therefore no service of legal notices can be had through their columns for at least a year, which is a large part |of the patronage of a country | paper. — Democrat.

When the daily train was put on the Mackay branch, represent atives of daily papers scoured the country tributary to the branch and secured many subscribers to their publications, and now people who formerly read news a week old, are reading the news much sooner. When people read more they write more letters, and when they write more letters they tran sact more business. Mr. Robert son, the railway mail clerk, who was on the tri-weekly run is still handling half of the mails on the Mackay branch, and reports that he handles about the sameamonnt of matter that he did before the change. Then too, this is the season of lightest mails from the postal clerk's point of view; it is too late to be handling and spring catalogues, too early for fall cata logues, and a long time till the holiday trade. Next month the mail pouches will be getting heavy with fall catalogues and circulars; the mails will increase in weight till at Christmas time there will be a flood of literature and merchandise going in every direction. Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Sanger of Butte, are two new arrivals in Blackfoot. Mr. Sanger .is pre siding at the express office during the absence of F- R. Jackman at Loon Creek. Mrs. Sanger will be remembered by many people here as Miss Clara Moore, who used to live on the West side. Need for Herb Farms. Medicinal herb farms will become a necessity in the United States. Spi gelia (pirk root), serpentaria and (the two varieties of snake sanega root) which were formerly found in abundance wild in Maryland and other Atlantic States are becoming scarce. Senna, dolocynth, gentian and the poppy have been grown to some extent, and digitalis purpurea (fox glove), atropia, belladonna (deadly night-shade), sanguinaria canadensis (blood-root). and ctinicifuga racemosa (black cobosh l. have been grown ex perimentally.

There are nearly 250 clocks at Windsor castle, and about 170 in Buckingham palace. One of the most, interesting of those ai Windsor is in a gilt metal case given by Henry III. to Anne Boleyn on the morning of their weddi. g. It is ten inches high and is engraved yith the royal arms of England quartered with those of France. The lead weintits are en graved with true-lovers' knots and "H. A.. Dieu et Mon Droit," at the base. This clock, which at oue time became the property of Horace Wai IKile was bought by Queen Victoria. It has survived four centuries, but four years only marked the duration of the royal love of Henry and Anne Boleyn. Prefer Shoes of Wood. eii shoe." said A. Ouuer liisb of Hoil.-'inl.
