He will loee his profit just as the countries lost lines and land, because he cannot get his produce to the place where they are needed at the right time. If the roads were in proper shape he would most likely make more money be cause he could bring his produce to market when the prices were the beet, regardless of weather condi tions.

Not unlike the effort put forth by those patriots of '76 that made the Fourth of July famous, is the effort being put forth by J. Robb Brady and other business men of Pocatello and the intermountain west to bring to this country the greatest influx of new people and capital in the shortest possible time that such a gigantic proposition could be effected. Plans which were given birth at a meeting held recently in Pocatello and attended by over 100 business men of the intermountain country, are rapidly being materialized and the raising of the necessary guar antee money was the first step in the program of events which when fully completed will startle the United States into realizing that this coun try, while the newest, is wider awake to its opportunities than any other country in the nation. The second step which, at the present time, is about accomplished 'rill be the raising of $5000 to send a delegation of men east to confer with Rickard and make a personal attempt to secure the match. This delegation will be headed by J. Robb Brady, president of the Pocatello Athletic club and chief backer of the campaign now on, while the personal will be made up of influential busi ness men from the intermountain country. C. J. Read, business manager of the Daily Post at Idaho Falls, ar rived in Pocatello today, where he will assume the duties of secretary of the executive committee which is managing the details of the cam paign. Mr. Read will also direct the publicity. 4* THE MYSTERIOUS WOMAN All the travelers and the waiters in the O. S.

This happened on Friday, and the next day was Saturday. A consensus of opinion points to the probability that the personage was not a woman; at least "she" was not of the sort of woman ever beheld by the witnesses. Clothes; An old blue skirt, a black jacket, an auto hat and black veil, all giving an appearance of shabbiness.

HOW BOOKS ARE STERILIZED Simple Apparatus Used by French Sci entists In Conducting Their Deadly Gas Attack. Almost the first thing to meet the eyes of French hygienists In their war time campaign for protecting the younger generation was their old en emy, the circulating book, well known as a carrier of disease. The many ob vious solutions of the problem shared one disadvantage while killing the germs they destroyed the book also. For the method perfected by Doctor Mursoulan, and now practiced In the Institute for Wounded and Infirm Workmen at Montreuil, It Is claimed that for one-fourth of a cent for each book, and with safety to operators, books cun be sterilized without the slightest Injury. Two pieces of very - simple apparatus are used, a beater and a disinfector. The boater is a long box open at one end and communicating at the other with un ordinary stove. Inside of the beater are wooden rods so arranged that the turning of a handle will cause them to strike on the books placed on a sliding frame. As the rods beat the books, the heavier particles of duBt fall out into a tray of disinfectant be low, and the lighter are carried by an exhaust fan to a stove, where they are burned. The books are hung, open, by spring clips from a skeleton framework, and wheeled Into the disinfecting chamber, which is equipped with a tank contain ing a solution of formaldehyde. The temperature is raised to 120 degrees Fahrenheit, the formaldehyde kills the germs, and the fumes are carried off by a funnel,—Popular Mechanics Mag azine. NOTE INCREASE OF RABIES Recrudescence of Dread Disease De clared to Be a Direct Result of the War. Among the plagues to follow the great war, rabies must be reckoned with. Already it has reappeared in England, while from the very begin ning an increase was apparent in France. Before the struggle began Belgium and the districts doomed to be occupied In northern France swarmed with dogs, and rabies was Sufficiently common. This abundance was due In part to the extensive use of the dog as a draught animal in those localities. After the Invasion these animals moved westward in large num bers. They appeared to breed as usual and were under little or no police su pervision, although conditions for sup pressing the danger were most favor able. Rabies showed an Increase from the North sea to Switzerland, and was carried far into fhe interior of France. Here police protection was as good as absent. The type too is virulent, as shown by the short incubation period. Lenoir, who writes to the above effect in a health bulletin abstracted in the Journal de Medecine et de Chlrurgie Pratique, was The officer in charge of an anti-rabies campaign, which sup pressed the disease in South Africa In 1902. Hard to Find Good In Crow, About as omnivorous as anything could well be, crows eat dead animals jyid are dreaded agents in the spread ing of diseases such as hog cholera, foot-and-mouth disease and glanders. Insatiable egg eaters, they scour the fields, hedge rows, thickets and or chards for nests of birds and even for eggs of the barnyard fowls. They dis played, I well remember, almost human Intelligence in watching our turkey hens to their nests, and then waiting on some nearby fenee stake or dead tree top for the eggs. They follow the wild ducks to their nesting grounds in the far north to feast on the eggs and young. Prairie chickens suffer severe ly from their depredations and the pheasant preserves are the frequent victims of their marauding habits.— Exchange. Butter From Coconut Milk. Butter is churned from coconut milk as from cow's milk. According to a British patent of late data the milk is completely extracted by crash ing the fresh kernel of the coconut to s paste with the addition of skimmed coconut milk from a later stage. The cellulose is then separated in a filter press, and the resinous mat ter Is removed in a centrifugal sepa rator. The cream la then collected from the purified milk In a centrifugal cream separator. The separated cream Is pasteurised, subjected to a lactic fermentatloa, churned Into butter, and this is washed with water. Albumen or vegetable casein is precipitated from the skimmed coconnt milk by heat and powdered gypsum, and is col lected, washed, pressed and dried. 8a pp hi re Is New Fashion Gam. That person who wishes to be In It, to nse the English equivalent for the French phrase, will wear sapphires. Such is the edict of fashion. One rea son for this is that it has been com paratively easy to Imitate the ruby, hitherto enthroned as the show gem. Another probably is that the sapphire has been somewhat neglected and it is prndent to get rid of accumulated stock. 8mall Coinage Doubles During last year the coinage of pieces under $1 in value was 714,000, 000, or nearly double the coinage of 1917, and approximately five times the coinage of 1910.

LET US SHOW YOU Aridren Auto Company Idaho Blackfoot South Main Street Ji Bit of prance : and prench : The French people are just a lit tle different in character than any body else in the world. The Ger mans are not different; their kind is present everywhere. The American people can not be catalogued; they are only to be described by their national deeds, and that's all we should ask, because it is enough. The French people hold together because they are of a kind; their whole life and their ideals are shared in common thruout the land. The German people Held together be cause they had a definite purpose of self aggrandizement in the world. The American people hold together because they wish to uphold and <erpefnate the idea of free popular government. The French folks are this way: f you talk with them they will ask vou all about yourself, your home, how long you have been away, whether you are married, or have father and mother living; they ask how you like "vin ordinaire," and if they dance much in America. If you speak of books they want to know what authors you like. If you say anything about music, they want you to sing or play. If you are in terested in French, they will spend long hours teaching you the words After some time it dawns on one that the French are different. They are interested in other folks. To them the world is full of interesting persons and things. To the German mind, itself is the most interesting thing in the world. German philos ophers worked on one theory more than any other, that is, the one which says: "The explanation of all things may be found in one's own mind." And so t hinking, they lost interest in others and made the great mistake. The German idea is not foolish; it is merely inhuman. They called it superhuman, for if you can learn the actual theory of life and the mainspring of Intellect in one single human instance they said, you will understand all creation. And so they developed themselves in every Garden Took Rakes, Shovels Hoes i People used to stir their soil with a hooked limb and rake their gardens with brush, but that is all out date now.

Anderson Lumber Co. "One Foot or a Million" Blackfoot Nyrth Main way they could; they built up philosophies without end, and they carried science to remarkable lengths. The very reason their musicians wrote some of the world's greatest music is that composition comes from a great concentration within oneself upon all sound im pressions. Self concentration be came their national creed. The French are curious about others .and have but little time to think about themselvej. That is the reason they stood the war suf ferings so lightly. Their papers never published the casualty lists at all during the fighting. The people kept their cheer because they were 'hot morbidly absorbed in them selves and their troubles. The light wines they make and use for the table, instead of water, have a mildly jovial influence upon them; they never thing of drinking until they are tipsy. The French people say that their English allies are cold and not in clined to be gay, and praise the Americans because they like to be happy and congenial, wherever they are. Socially the French are rather formal, but always at ease, for courtesy is their middle name. With their interest in others it is natural for them to see things from the other fellow's point of view, and therefrom springs that national politeness. They practise the golden rule in manners.—F.
