Durijig the fiscal year which ended June 30, 1918, 3,187 cattle and horses, worth $209, 000 and 40,228 sheep, worth $523, 000 were lost thru predatory ani mals, disease, poisonous plants and other miscellaneous causes within the national forests of the inter mountain district. The fact that this loss, amounting to three quarters of a million dollars in a single year oc curred upon grazing lands which are admittedly superior to those com prising the open public ranges, gives some conception of the hazards at tending the production of livestock in the west. Predatory animals took the heavi est toll from the range flocks and herds, killing 273 cattle and horses, worth $13,650, and 21,813 sheep, ■worth $283,b69. The next most de structive agency was the poisonous plant, which killed 2139 cattle and AFTER THE FLU U If you have had the "flu," you need ad- justing for after-effects.

Good road volunteers are many. Among the foremost are the Eccles Hotel, the City, National and Stand rod banks, Seeger-Bundlie's store, the Bingham county farm bureau and the Blackfoot papers. ! These volunteers are enlisted to do their all, and have already opened their purses to get the people inter ested in their own business affairs; to awaken to the opportunity now at the door. Mr. Taxpayer put a few dollars into a good, safe, profit sharing in vestment which pays dividends daily. This isn't a "get rich quick" scheme. You always have the value for.money invested. Surely every citizen favors better roads. If you haven't given this question any thought, if you are a tight-wad and are afraid of the risk, or U you are a "good roads slacker,, i;ead a few facts concerning this matter. Had we failed when called to do our all when our country was afwar with Germany the kaiser would now be at the helm. Will we fail is ripe to reap the benefits of good roads? Namely saving money, in creased valuation of property, saving of lives lost yearly thru bad roads, saving of time and energy of men and beasts, saving wear and tear on autos, buggies, wagons and harness, the pleasure of being able to go any where in the county with out getting stuck every few miles, as many have this spring. Its sure fun to be an on-looker when this happens. Ask someone who has been stuck in the Groveland streets the name they called it, it won't sound life "fun." The greatest benefit is Uncle Sam wil lhelp us with a generous sack of coin. It we bond for $50,000 we will get $25,000 from Uncle Sam and we can get not to exceed $75,000 providing we send men with plenty of pull to put in our claim and ex plain our needs. Will we let this opportunity pass? Show your color, when your chance comes. Vote bonds for good roads. Mr. Slacker if you refuse to be interested now and refuse to work for the betterment of your town and county, when there are acci dents caused by bad roads, say to yourself I'm to blame for that. When you see autos, wagons and buggies broken down or stuck in the mud for hours, when people re fuse to make their home in a county so far* behind the times that peo ple have to stay home a good part of the year and when Garfield Bond loses $1350 and many others large sums of money yearly by being un able to get to markets, don't try to shift the blame on your wife or neighbor just, say "I am the cause of this. Our first duty, vote the bonds. Second, see that ewery dollar ap propriated for road improvement is used on Bingham county highways and is expended under such close supervision by taxapyers that waste and graft be wholly eliminated. MRS. S. E. ROUNDY, Blackfoot, R. F. D. 1 1 a The value of good roads has been recognized at least since the time when all roads led to Rome and the Romans built such good roads that some are still in use after all these centuries. Their construction con tributed largely, If not mainly, to the wealth and prosperity of the na tion. So it will be with Bingham county, when good roads are «» tablished—wealth and prosperity will naturally follow. Bad wagon roads is synonymous with poorest marketing facilities, and what does it avail the farmer to produce big crops if he is unable to convert them into cash or market them at a pro fit? The old truism "Time is money" applies especially to the farmer and his desire for road improvement for by saving time in marketing his crops, he has more time for lucra tive farming, as well as for recrea tion for himself and family! Not the farmer alone, but the whole community shares in the bene fits of good roads. This is, preem inently a community of parents am bitious for the interests of their children, and little argument should be necessary to convince them that these Interests demand better roads. Good roads, making the nearby towns and cities easily accessible at all seasons, would help to make the whole community content and pros perous. The farsighted man sees beyond today and builds for the future so one is forced to the conclusion that the men whose judgment and fore sight led them Into this fertile val ley when it was yet a wilderness, will see the necessity of good roads and realize that now is the accepted time to secure them. Population m^kes the value of real property and good roads are an important factor in attracting people to a locality and holding them as permanent settlers. The growth as well as the prosperity of our county, demands the construc tion of better highways and means of intercommunication. a t a as is at and L. E. SPALDING. Springfield, Idaho April 2, 1919 Living as I do by an ungraded county road, each day convinces me more clearly of our need of good roads. Each community in the county has a rural center, to which good roads would bring additional trade, crease in trade would keep more money circulating at home and nomic, educational and social facil ities would gradually develop for our benefit. The transcient travel thru . our county Is not to be discounted. News of our good roads would encourage new home seekers to try their luck with us and assist them in winning their way to success. A As our county is the home of ■$any sheep men during Bpring and winter months, we should realize that our produce would sell to them at better prices could they curtail Dr. tend day, the In eco W. tion tist the heavy expense occasioned by hauling over poor roads. Our own produce would bring us higher pro fit thru increased marketing facil ities and a decrease in loss from de preciation in the value of machinery and live stock on poor roads. The cut in garage bills and the saving of time on good reads are valuable items. The wrong of unmarketable crops when the world needs food, '.ies often at the door of bad roads. The county business centers in the banks at the county seat. Mis understandings often arise from business transacted by mall. A good road, permitting farmers to get in touch with their bankers thruout the year would do away with many delays and losses to depositor and banker. Then the explanation of the beaut ies and resources of our own home county would be facilitated by good roads. Leaving the economic value of good roads we find the social value even greater. Good roads would en rich our lives thru greater social intercourse with our neighbors. Con. tact with larger centers would per mit us to see and hear better eater* tainments. This would open up new fields of thought and endeavor by putting us in touch with the cur rent of world progress. No individ ual Is improved without leaving some mark upon the community. Inasmuch as isolation breeds narrow, mindedness and bigotry, contact the world develops broad-mindedness and humanitarianlsm. Good roads lead us to better thoughts, more re laxation and enjoyment and finally to better citizenship. The education of our children is seriously hindered by poor roads. Their health is often endangered. To build good roads Would be to build a better future for our posterity. As a country woman I have ap proached this from a country stand point, keeping in mind the knowl edge that what benefits the farmer benefits the city man in inverse ratio, for one is dependent upon the other. Perhaps the best a good road could do, would be to more closely relate the lives of the two, develop sympathy and harmony between them and obliterate unnecessary and unjust class prejudices. MRS. H. V. CHANDLER. to at in you a do now in on any it we ex be to in of or is it? 1 Sterling, Idaho, April 1, 19.19 I presume most of the taxpayers know the benefits to be derived from a good road, that do not realize, would like to quote the following from my observation. Land values do no where exist without the good roads being there. It cost money to build the Multnomah highway in Oregon. The' roads in some parts of Cali That's There may be some For those I to at in fornia too, were costly, where you find alfalfa land at $500 per acre. Don't you think our land is just as good and when really it comes to hay it would make thetr's look sick in comparison. What put Pershing to the front? Wasn't it good roads and plenty of grit. Im agine Pershing going to the front by way of the alkalies near here. That would be great. I think not, wouldn't The man who said we have the land, but we are way behind with our roads is right, and whatever we do let us build them and build them good, as in that way cost of main tanance will soon make up for the extra cost of a good road. I presume we all want to give Bingham county as well as the state a place on the map. So let us all work for good roads, better towns and communities and a better Idaho. MRS. L. G. FISHER. Blackfoot, Idaho, April 2, 1919 Good roads are the greatest as sets a farming community can have because they are economical, profit able, indispensible. They enable the farmer to deliver at the proper sea son his products with the minimum of time and expense with either horse or motor power and with the least wear on either. Tourists and homeseekers con sider roads with the development of a country which either encourages them to stay and invite their friends t oa good thing or to get out taking a bad Impression of the community with them for they usually desire thrifty looking places. Good roads increase the value of the land near it as does a 'paved street in the city, they induce the younger folks to seriously consider the farm as they rely principally on modern conveniences for their fu ture and good roads are a modern convenience which any progressive community requires, need less repair than bad ones, such as we now have, thereby lessening the taxes. The state's proposal to help build good roads is proof enough to con vince one that we should maintain no other kind wh$re the traffic is great est. Not only are the farmers bene fited, but it makes all industry pay better. Everyone receives better ser vice, merchants, bankers, railroads, lumber, electric and telephone com panies, in fact the only drawback is in the building and this Is soon overcome by the many advantages. Good roads are as essential to man at this day and age as was the bow and arrow to the red man. MRS. J. V. McKERCHER. Blackfoot, R. F. D. 1. Continued in next issue Good roads * MRS, FRANK T.

THEY WANT TO KNOW' A good many people want to know what is the use of putting up 9600, 000 for road building, when we have so little to show for the $74,000 that was expended last year for roads. They ask if it is not likely the larger sum will also be spent and still have nothing to show for it. Their point is well taken if it were the intention to expend this large sum grading earth roads and dragging them with all sorts of out fits in all sorts o^ weather, wet, dry, dusty or whatever it might be the day the road man had some teams he wanted to hire out o nroad work regardless of whether they would accomplish any good. But that is not the plpnf All the plans for the expenditure of this bond money contemplate the con struction of roads with a cfown-with a wearing surface that will neither blow away nor wash away, nor yet soak up and tramp flown flat. We never yet have had anough money to go ahead and equip for handling the materials for crowning roads, nor have we ever adapted the sys tem that would get the work done by the new system. - # It is as if a merchant were doing., business in a tent apd it took his profits each year to mend the tent and fight the dust and rain water that found its way into his goodB. S 3 might better bond and build a rmanent shelter for his goods and stop the loss and waste, and the dam. age on the goods. It is as if a man were raising grain and had not enough money to buy a binder or header and went ahead harvesting it with a mower, losing a large percentage of the crop, and having it sprout and grow the next year, where he did not want it, and yet not have enough of it to make it profitable to stand back and let it mature.as volunteer grain, would simply make a failure of farming, whereas, he might go in debt, (bond) for the price of binder, stop the waste and ""begin making money. It is difficult to comprehend this road bond question because it into larger sums than most of are accustomed to deal with, but it is feasible to build lasting roads, stop the waste, get better service and stop the waste and loss on roads, cars, tires and time.

Professor W. S. Mills, who conducted the trial, submitted a list of ten words. The best record was seven of the ten words spelled correctly. Next year the niety students who were given the examination expect to teach school. Since seven of the words correctly spelled was the best mark, it is inferred that many of the other attempts fell below that. The words selected were In, no sense "trick" word|. They were words in common use, and words which are foun din almost every column of every daily newspaper.
