THE IDAHO REPUBLICAN SEVEN SS THE BLACKFOOT HARNESS SHOPS SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT / AT THE CLOSING OF THE YEAR AND AT THE CLOSING OF THE WAR THE BLACKFOOT HARNESS SHOP IS STILL, AS BE FORE, THE HEADQUARTERS FOR LEATHER GOODS AND ASSOCIATED LINES. STARTING IN BUSINESS ON THE "CASH AND CARRY" BASIS FOURTEEN YEARS AGO, WE HAVE KEPT STEADILY TO OUR PURPOSE THRU ALL THE YEARS, THE GOOD TIMES, THE HARD TIMES, THE WAR AND THE COMING OF PEACE. AND ALL THE TIME, OUR PURPOSE HAS BEEN TO DO OUR VERY BEST, GUARANTEE OUR WORK AND GOODS, SELL AT REASONABLE PRICES FOR CASH, AND HAVE OUR SHOP ALWAYS STOCKED WITH THE GOODS WE ADVERTISE. | WE HAVE LESS EXPENSE better. An old shoe is better because it is fitted to the foot, and keeps you in ease and comfort, while a new shoe has to be broken in. But breaking the shoe iin is only part of the problem; the new shoe breaks your *poc! etbook in as well. Our repair man lets you off easy. hand you the collar he needs. Horses used to have to suf fer a great deal from ill-fitting collars, but this is no longer necessary if you buy of us. We keep no bookkeepers, no collectors, no lawyers, no printed matter but a check book; we collect as we go and pay as we go, and we give our customers the benefit of this simple inexpensive way of doing business. OUR BUSINESS HAS GROWN, and with it circle of friends has increased. In our large new- store with its roomy basement we carry more goods than peo ple suppose we do, and with our efficient workmen we handle more work than people suppose. We know this be cause patrons keep telling us this when they come in and look around. COLLAR PADS AND CLIPS Besides having collars that are made right, we have STORM ROBES AND HORSE BLANKETS the collar pads of all kinds. Besides the filled ones we have the felt pads, and all of them have the durable clips to hold them in place. You used to break the clips off and then have to use baling wire or binder twine, but you don't have to do that now. Come in and look at our stacks of collar pads of different shapes, colors and kinds and you will enjoy the show. Then when you look over your horses and harnesses you will see how well we have prepared goods to meet your needs. our We have a stock of robes for automobiles, fine, soft and serviceable. They were bought months ago and could not now be replaced at'the same price. We are selling them at the prices we would have sold them at if they could have been made and delivered at the time we first wanted them. To see them is to know that they are a bargain. To get your hands in their folds is to have the proof of value. Wrap your folks in them for long drives and keep them safe from flu. Ir our WE HAVE GOOD HELP For months we have been seeking more help to handle the ever-increasing business, and now we have good help and plenty of it. We have good goods and plenty of them. We have just received some large shipments of standard goods and have more on the road. We invite you to come in and look at our stock and our shop and repair facilities. OUR REPAIRING SERVICE Our storm robes for horses are generally called horse • blankets. A horse might prefer (to callit his bath robe his kimom, but whatever it is called, it is that close, heavy canvas on the storm side and fine, soft, heat-holding goods on the inside—just what the horse needs to hold the warmth and protect him from the flu and pneumonia. The humane man protects his horse because he is humane, and the poor man protects his horse because he cannot afford to take the risk of losing him. The "close" man protects his horse because he doesn't want to lose him. If yyou have not reached conclusions as to what you will do about it, pro tect your horse for all these reasons. Be humane, be care ful and be close. It If your harnesses are getting worn'out and you have •been thinking of buying some new sets, come in and see our new harnesses and also look at our facilities for mak ing old harness into good ones again at a small cost. Our repair men make old harness over, repair the weak places, oil them in season and start you off in the spring with good outfits at small cost. or SHOEMAKERS IN THE LIGHT At both ends of our store we have shoemakers and hamessmakers at work. It may not look inviting to see shoe makers in the front windows, but we have them there account of the light, and to be at the service of the stream of customers wanting shoes repaired. It is an important matter to keep people well shod, and our superb service in the big windows does it. If you have shoes with good uppers going to ruin just because the soles are thin, bring them to us. We make short work of making them good. If there are wrinkles at the sides that are going to be cracks soon and holes later, just because the sole is worn out, leaving all the bend in one spot, or if you have broken stitches or sloping heels or anything else wrong with youi shoes, bring them to us and let us make them like new, only WHY WE DO GOOD WORK We like to work on leather goods. You may not like the smell. We do. Did you ever know a good printer that could stay away from the odor of printers' ink, or a good blacksmith that' could stay away from the ringing of the anvil? We are like that. We can't be happy unless we are reveling in leather goods. We' find a song in every great variety of other stifcch. A joy in every dive of the leather punch. Security things tor horses. Besides all kinds of harnesses used in in every drop of wax and oil. We build our leather goods this locality, we have horse collars of the patterns that give for strength, for service, for satisfaction to the user and comfort and good working conditions to horses with that brings joy to us. If you have dealt with us, you know shoulders of peculiar shape. If you have had trouble fit- that this is true; if you have not dealt with us you have ting your horse with a collar, bring him to us and we will missed a satisfaction you are entitled to. on pays. OUR MODERN HORSE COLLARS We have a big supply and a The BLACKFOOT HARNESS SHOP Henesh Building BLACKFOOT SOLDIERS' LETTERS Let's all write to them, no matter whether we are personally ac quainted with them or not.

This day's news contains a submissive reply fnMh President Wilson's umi cernlng an armistice, and the boys are one moment telling how they will start down the "main drag'' back home in a new civilian suit, hands In rockets, and the next, pessimls 'tlcally fordastlng how they may ba assigned to duty in France for six i month or a year, after the war.' For the most part I think we unami mously hope this school will con tlnue unchanged until our course Is finished, and of course I think It ; win. Berlin to m&tum con Then there are chances against Immediate peace. But its really all K e same to us. We only have Sun ys and meal times to bother about deciding such international ques tions. Well, we've had another week of finding out the tremendous know ledge a lieutenant has to have about artillery. I overheard one of the boys saying, "I never knew a lieuten ant had to know this .much before." We get up at daylight, always an hour or so before the sun—some times several days before it—and our last class often carries us into the dusk of evening. Something doing all the time. We are kept busy and interested. I never saw a lot of men so ambitious to learn, so energetic in studying. Its a good thlng we have the "femmes de chambre" for we'd never have time to sweep out our barracks or wash i clothes. They even make up our beds and fill our canteen with that rare stuff, drinking water. Next week we undertake directing practice fire on the range, and that is really the object' of all our study. There seems to be a million con siderations entering Into the firing of one shot—and one thing lacking— time to think. i lie last letters I have from over there are dated the first week In September. I haven't had a Sage , hurst letter since coming to Saumur. I am going to send you my Xinas package card, and ask you to send me whatever of knitted sox you have, or my thing of that sort. We can buy cigars and sweets. , Sincerely, HSR FREMONT. OPEN LOST RIVER LANDS Water. Will be Ready for 20,000 Acres in This State Next Spring OGDEN, Utah.

One day the haby was being weighed and Maggie asked what that was for. "Oh," said her father, "Uncle George has taken a great fancy to baby ,and nes offered to buy him for a shilling an ounce." Maggie looked startled. "You're not going to sell him, are. you daddy?" "Of course not, precious," an swered daddy, proud to see his little girl loved her brevier so. "No. Kee|) him till he gets a bit bigger," the child went on; "he'll fetch more money then."—Tit-Bits.

DISLIKED ASSENT TREATMENT "Even the field-hospitals close up the firing-line In France find time for an occasional laugh," writes Mal colm Adams, of the Red Cross. ' A party of wounded marines were being taken to a base-hospital on a much over-crowded motor-truck, -he nurse accompanying them became an xious about their wounds. "I hope I am not hurting any of you," she said. "You're hurting me a lot," re plied one of the soldlerB. "But I am nowhere near you," ex claimed the nurse indignantly. "That's what's hurting me," was the calm reply.—Washington Star. * LEGAL NOTICES + ^^J<XH^FOR l PlfBMCATro5?** + Department of the Interior, U. S. land office at Blackfoot, Idaho, Oct. 19, 1918.
