ISHed Mad Lion
Gunshot in the Eye Resulted in im
mediate Death With no Ap
parent - Suffering
The big lion named Leo that was
with the Wortham shows wintering
at the fairgrounds, was killed last
week by a gunshot in the eye.
Leo was the biggest lion in the
sh-w, and got to thinking he was the
only one worth while. He took
streaks of being cross and vicious,
and the management decided to kill
him before he did any harm. He was
a peculiar beast in being the child of
related parents and he never had
been quite normal and dependable in
Cnief of Police Drew was assigned
the role of executioner, and he went
to borrow a rifle of Osmond
Buchanan, who put in a request to be
allowed to do the shooting. He said
he had always wanted to kill a lion,
and lacking the Roosevelt opportun
ity to kill them in their own jungles
he would kill one ta the circus, since
somebody had to do It.
Cnief Drew is a fatherly kind of
man, so he borrowed both the man
and the rifle and into the hunting
grounds they went, Buchanan taking
the lead. He said he was going to
shoot the lion in the eye, and sure
enough he did. The bullet entered
the brain and did not come out at the
back, so there was no puncture in the
After the animal was skinned Mr.
Drew sent the pelt to Fred Coleman,
the taxidermist at St. Anthony to be
made into a rug.
Leo was born a lion not by any
choice of his, and he became an actor
in shows because that seemed to be
the only vocation open to him. He
never understood the world very
well, and he never could get thru the
bars of his cage to set matters right
with the crowd.
He was burled according to the old
French custom based on the edits of
the church, that actors must not be
buried in the churchyard or on any
consecrated ground. It was all right
to be entertained by an actor or an
actress while they wei;e all alive, but
when the life had gone out It would
not do to have the remains deposited
in the same piece of territory unless
there was an old fence marking a
boundary, between them. Leo was
buried like human actors of that
earlier, period. May he rest in peace.
SCHOOLS WILL CONDENSE WORK
Mrs. Faulconer, county superinten
dent of schools, on her return from
the meeting of the state teachers'
association at Boise, said it was con
sidered best to have the school work
for the rest of the year deal with the
most essential things and try to do
the full year's work in them. Nearly
all the schools have had teachers
on salary and subject to call at any
time, and for this the full pay is al
lowed, so that the funds will be ex
hausted nearly as early as if school
were in session.
The legislative committee will not
ask for much in the way of legisla
tion this year, but an effort will be
made to have a separate reform
school built for girls.

We, your neighbors, speaking thru
the Red Cross, welcome your return.
You have served us and your country
well in the greatest war in history.
Whether you served in this country
or on the battlefields of France, we
are proud of you. In your absence
we pledged ourselves thru the Red

this family interest will not cease.
Our greatest opportunity to be of
service may come while you and your
family are getting back to everyday
life. We may need only to supply
you with information, but that will
be given promtly and accurately.
Whatever we shall have the op
portunity to do, working with you,
we shall gladly do thru the home
service section of the Red Cross.
When You get Home Consult Your
Home Service Section About
Here are some things which you
and your family will wish to know
about when you return and about
which you and they may obtain fur
ther information from the home ser
vice section of the Red Cross chapter
in your home town.
Every Returned Soldier Will Need
Every returned 'soldier and his
family will need information about
his rights under the war risk insur
ance law or the civil relief act or
other legislation or regulations for
the benefit of soldiers and their rela
tives. You and your family will
want to know how to'keep your gov
ernment Insurance from lapsing;
how to file a claim of compensation
if you are Injured in the. service;
what plans the government is per
fecting to roturn discharged soldiers
to industry; how to apply for arrears
of pay; how long the government al
lowance to your family should con
tinue, etc. It Is not necessary for
you 'to writfy to Washington to learn
these things. Washington sends the
latest information on these and many
other points to your home service sec
tion for the use of yourself and youi
family. Take your Inquiries to the

Why You Should Keep up Your Gov
When yon entered the army you
took out government insurance and
allotted a portion oi your monthly
pay to keep up premium payments.
It is of the greatest importance tha
you keep up your government insur
From the home service section ir.
your home town you can learn the
plans which the g ,vernment is now
perfecting by which you can, within
five years after l eace is declared,
change the form of insuiance which
you are now carrying into any of the
ordinary kinds of private insurance.
It will still be government insurance,
however. If your premiums are kept
up you may take advantage of these
plans without medical examination,
even tho you may have suffered some
injury or contracted some illness in
the meantime which would make you
uninsurable in an insurance com
Even if you are sound and healthy,
do not be persuaded to drop your
government insurfChce. You owe it
lo yourself and your family to keep
yourself insured. We believe that
you can best do this by maintaining
your government insurance for the
following reasons: v
Ylou keep your family continually
It helps you to save money me
It gives you an opportunity by
means of an endowment policy (if
you want to change iater to that form
of insurance) tor provide for your
own old age.
The government insurance will
cost you less than otner life insur
ance because there are no charges for
commissions, collections, administra
tive or advertising expenses.
Government insurance is free from

claims of creditors.
There is nothing safer than gov
How to Keep up Your Government
You should be told before leaving
the service the date up to which pre
miums on your policy have been paid
by deduction from your pay. This
is very important. If your officers
do not notify you of this date, ask
them about it.
When this date arrives you should
pay the next premium and continue
to make such payments each month
^hereafter in order to keep your in
surance in force. If you leave the
service without learning this date,
be sure to make your next payment
within thirty-one days after you
Your letter containing the insur
ance payment should be addressed
to "The Bureau of War Risk In
surance, Attention of Insurance Sec
tion, Treasury Department, Washing
ton, D. C." and should state the date
to which premiums on your policy
were paid by deductions from your
pay (if you were so informed when
you were discharged,) together with
the cause of discharge as shown by
discharge papers, your full name and
rank, serial number, and your pre
sent post office address.
If you are unable to give your
serial number, then you should state
the organization to which you were
attached at" the time you took out
the insurance, your home address at
the time of enlistment, the date of
your birth and the date*of discharge.
If you are in doubt as to the
amount, be sure to send enough, tor
any overpayment will be credited aw
advance payment on future -pre
miums. On receipt of your first pay
ment the government will send you
a form to use with your next pay
If you do not mase your insurance
payments within thirty-one days after
they are due your insurance will
lapse and it will be necessary for
you to make a formal application for
reinstatement. If the insurance has
lapsed you should send immediately
to the bureau of war risk insurance
the full amount which you believe
to be due and apply at once to your
home service section for information
and assistance as to how you may
