Tonpiu/is CHEER THE IDAHO BOYS State -Campaign Manager Richard E. Randall of the united waf work campaign headquarters issues the following special message to the workers in the united war work cam paign drive ,and to the people of Idaho, as a result of the armistice: "Go harder, the need is greater than ever. Don't slacken anywhere along the line. The war is ended, hut its horrors have not. Don't be misled by the idea that there is no further need of welfare work among the soldiers. Now, more than ever before, do our heroic boys need the helping hand, the friendly service, of the seven welfare organizations. The united war work campaign must be finished. Make Idaho the first across the top, with her quota a Thanksgiving offering that peace is about to come once more to the world." Imagine if you can, a division of American and allied troops, Ameri can, English, French and Italian in the front line trench. Out there across that desolate hell known as "'No Man's Land," the Huns are waiting. It is the "zero hour"—in a few moments a whistle will sound along the line, and at that signal, the division of allied troops are to leap from their trenches and chive the Bocne brutes back. The barrage has been laid down, anlndescriable deluge of .-tnel an I schrapnel, exploding shells rain down from the heavens. The whistle sounds, the barrage moves on, the allied soldiers start—Would it break your heart if the Americans were the last out of the trenches? Wouldn't it make you sick to the depths of your soul if in that division of allied soldiers, our own lads from Idaho hung back and hesitated and had to be coaxed to go across? You know it would. You konw they do not have to be urged to leap out into that hell and give their lives If need be for victory, for humanity. You know that the first over the top line are those our own lads we have sent from the farms and the homes in the cities of our own Idaho. They are hungry for the opportunity to make good and prove their devotion to the ideals of tjiis government—our own government. Because they are, we are proud of them. Because they are true to tliclr duty, we love them. At home, the nation is drawn up, MITCHELL AND MAXWELL CARS Call and See Us HENDRIE IMPLEMENT COMPANY South Broadway Phone 10 Blackloot waiting for the signal to do some thing for civilization. Every state In the Union is in the trenches, the barrage has been laid down, the ob jective, the goal is out yonder. Monday morning, Nov, 11, the whistle sounded, the state leaped out of the trenches and started to ward the objective of their quota In the great united war work cam paign for funds—for funds to bring comfort to those heroic lads over there. Wouldn't it break cue hearts of our Idaho boys If Idaho, their dear state, were to hang back? Wouldn't it make them rirk with shame If Idaho, the Idaho they lo>'e shot 1<1 hesitate and hold back in this great opportunity to prove her Iovfj for them. The thought is unbearable. Listen! I know Uiose boys, a.d the greatest inspiration of their Ines the one sublime inspiration to them to carry on thru ail the hardships and horrors, the agonies and the pain of the months to come ,is the belief that the people at home have faith in them and love them anil will hack the '' up, will glj v with them in their triumphs an 1 will suffer with them if it so happens that the for tunes of war tear their bodies into mangled, quivering, pitiable wrecks on the battlefield. That is the heart of the boya.over there. What is the heart of we at home? Are we go ing to be true to that faith they have in us? Is Idaho going to put her foot up the ladder these mornings and take an oath in her heart be fore God and man that she will be first to reach her goal, of all the states lined up? Will she prove worthy of the pride her sons in France feel in her? That is the message I want t.i get to the heart of every person in the state. Don't break the spirit of our toys by being next to last, by being fortieth, twentieth, fifteenth, tenth or even second, but lift them up so that they can look the world in the face and be proud that they are of Idaho, because Idaho, of all the states is first in the united war work campaign, as her sou over there are first out of the trenches, into the flame of battle against the Hun. $200,000 WORTH OF CANDY ORDERED FOR CAMP LEWIS That the government recognizes the value of candy in the diet of its soldlere is shown by the order for 9200,000 worth of candy, which was placed during July for the men at Camp Lewis. This is among the larg est orders for candy ever placed by the government for its soldiers. It is estimated that it will take three months to fill the order which was placed with two northwestern manufacturers, and that the supply will be sufficient to last the five ex changes at Camp Lewis for a period of three to four months. This war has done more than any thing else to demonstrate that.candy possesses Immense food value. A soldier, after a hard day's work, needs candy. His system craves it. Likewise, shipyard workers* loggers, men and women doing all kinds of heavy work, crave candy, because it supplies the need for something sweet to supply fuel for the body. Crowing children require the sugar in candy to supply them with energy. All candy being manufactured to day is made with the sugar author ized for this purpose by the national food administration. You can patrio tically eat the candy which you now see on sale. - If you wish to forego it, you may send it to a soldier. A comparison of the food value of candy with other articles of diet tells an interesting story, creams have a value of 2092 calories per pound. Compared with this: Whole milk Cream. Whole eggs Beefsteak ... Corn . Rice . White berad Corn bread Many people used to wonder what would be the substitute for liquors to supply heat for the system. They have found that sugar is the real source of body fuel; it supplies the carbohydrates which are necessary to every healthful person. Sugar is enjoyed most when made up into a food product, mixed with fruit, nuts, etc., all of which are high in food value. We recognize sugar as a food pro duct, milk as food product, cocoa as a food product, nuts .fruits and raisins as food products. These are the chief ingredients of candy. Logi cally, then, the combination of all these products is bound to be a wholesome, nutritious food.

ALMOST WILLING TO GIVE Ur Mr. Gap Johnson Is Beginning to Fes He Never Will Really Under stand Women. "Women is funny, folks, 'most any way you take 'em," philosophically ad mitted Mr. Gap Johnson of Rumpus Ridge. "The oldest man In America can't tell what a lady will do next, and if he could, she wouldn't do It. Day before yesterday while we was setting around the dinner table wife slapped a few of the children Into shape and then sorter casually asked me if I knowed what day It was. "'Why, Wednesday or Thursday, I reckon,' says I. 'I haln't paid much attention lately, but it's some'rs along there.' " 'It Is Tuesday, the 10th,' says she, kind o' sternly. 'Do you know what happened 15 years ago today?' " 'Hum, now! L'ez see,' says I. Oh, yes!—that was the day a tree fell on me and busted me up considerable. I forgot— "'No, It wasn't!' she snapped. 'We were married 15 years ago today.' "'Is that so?' says I. "Well, I knowed something happened to me, but I sorter disrecollected what. Aw-hum! I—' "And then I'll be switched If wife didn't rise up like a queen and sling mighty nigh every dish on the place at my head—dishes that cost me good money, too!

There are few nations that can point to a brighter recqrd of culture than this little nation of one hundred thousand people (Iceland), practically isolated on their arctic island for nearly one thousand years. Why did they not revert to barbarism, as has been the fate of many white groups out of touch with outside civilization? There Is but one answer: The Prome thean flame which kindled the genius of the old, now nameless, monks—the saga authors—has never died In Ice land. It could not die so long as the sagas lived, firing the spiritual life of the nation. Each period of national prosperity since the saga age has seen a revival of literary activity. Now Iceland is more prosperous in a material way than ever in Its history, and behold there Is a pen scratching in every cot tage; there is a poet apostrophizing every waterfall, dedicating the sum mer crop of popples and daffodils, t-d charming, or at least trying to charm, the Innumerable host of fays and light elves, trolls and water sprites and "landvaettir" which have endowed the bleak hills and mountains of Iceland with an Immortal soul.—From the Dial. Fewer Works of Art Imported. According to a compilation by the National City bank, the value of art works imported In 1918 is about $11, 000,000, as against $23,000,000 in 1917 and $35,000,000 in 1914. In automobiles the value In 1918 was about $50,000, against nearly $2, 000,000 in 1913 and more than $2,000, 000 in 1912, while the average value per machine Imported In 1918 was less than one-half that before the war. Decorated chlnaware Imported In 1018 was about $3,500,000 in value, against $8,000,000 In 1914. Almost the same ra tio was shown in decreases of precious stones and jewel Importations. - Americans Should Eat Fish. Americans are deficient as fish eat ers, compared with inhabitants of for eign countries. Less than two pounds per head is the yearly consumption of salt and smoked fish In this country. For the winter's supply, salt fish can be laid in and, pound for pound, fur nish much more nutriment than fresh fish.
