Reports Prices High
at Eastern Points
F. E. Seeger Returns From Bu>1ng
Trip to Markets of the
the East—Price
Advance is Dae
A GOOD YEAR IS EXPECTED
Easterners Are Optimistic Over
Prospects for Business
During 1920
F. E. Seeger has returned from
the eastern markets, where he has
been on a buying trip for his firm.
He reports merchandise very high in
the east and hard for the retailer to
secure altho he obtained a consider
able supply for his company.
Retail prices in the east are much
higher than in the west according to
Mr. Seeger, principally because of the
fact that the eastern retainl stores
are so close to the markets that they
do not buy in quantities sufficient
to take advantage of the raise in
prices. It is the opinion in.the east
said Mr. Seeger that high prices will
continue thruout this year and pos-
sibly next year and that this country
will never return to the low prices
of former years. Eastern business
men predict the year of 1920 to be
one of the best for business in the
history of the country notwithstand-
ing unsettled conditions.

the Idaho state farm bureau, at its
annual meeting, to join the Ameri
can Federation of Farm Bureaus,
the following warning against con
tributing to agents claiming that
they represent the state or national

bureau has been called to the activity
of certain individuals in the state
purporting to represent the National
..eration of i arm Bureaus in the
"er of soliciting memberships and
charging a fee of $5.00.
This is to certify that such per
son or persons have not been author
ized to act, by either the state farm
bureau of Idaho or by the national
farm bureau federation to solicit any
memberships for either of these or
ganizations. All representations con
trary to the above notice are fraudu
lent and the state farm bureau of
Idaho wishes to warn farmers not to
make contributions to agents claim
ing to represent either the state farm
bureau or the national farm bureau
federation.''

Clean the Slate; Make
a New Start
There's an advantage in being fresh in any race.
When you are using borrowed money you are in a race toward
the end of making more out of that cash than you have to pay
in interest to the banker.
It is the right banking practice for a borrower to clean off the
slate once a year, and be absolutely out of debt, if it is only for
a minute. (
This gives you a fresh foothold. Your credit is improved. You
have showmtfhat you know how to clean up. And the object of
all money transactions is to clean up.
Try it. It wins.

Their Services
•:S
The executive board of the Bing
ham county chapter of the American
Red Cross met on February 10, 1920
to consider the future program of
the local chapter.
Miss Dorothy E. Wysor, field
representative for Idaho, was present
and outlined the possible activites of
the chapter under the Natonal Red
Cross peace program aq follows:
"The future work of the Red Cross
in addition to disaster and emer
gency relief both at home and abroad
will be along the lines of social ser
vice, educational work and public
health. This is in harmony with the
Internatonal league of Red Cross
societies ,the object of which is to
promote hiunan happiness and wel
fare all over the world and reduce
the sum of preventable poverty and
misery.
The most important work now be
ing done by many chapters in Idaho
is the extension of their war home
service work to civilian relief.
In every communty there are fam
ilies and individuals who have fallen
into distress. The home service of
the Red Cross plans to offer con
structive help, service, information
and advice to all who desire it and
are in need of it. It aims to make
its work of the type that will really
help people out of their difficulties
and restore them to independence
and self-support instead of pushing
therii further down into dependency.
Home service is not intended to be
primarily a relife work, but it will

Against Those Guilty of Pass*
Ing Worthless Paper on

PRACTICE MUST BE STOPPED
Numerous Instances in Past Few
Days of Forgers in
This Vicinity
A tkoro campaign has been in
stituted against check artists, who
have been operating in this vicinity
by Prosecuting Attorney R. W.
Adair. Warrants will be issued for
their arrest and county officials are
determined that the passing of
checks without sufficient funds in
the bank to cover them must be
stopped.
There has been numerous in
stances of this recently. Checks
have been written and cashed by
local business men when the writer
possessed no money in the banks
upon which they were drawn. Others
have forged checks in the name of
prominent men.
strangers and forgers who make
their living by this means have been
guilty but local people have been
getting into the habit of passing bad
checks. Prosecuter Adair is insist
ent that this practice be stopped and
he is invoking all of the machinery
of the law to aid him.
And not only
N. P. L. Paper is
in Bad Condition
Reports received from Nampa in
dicate that the Free Press, official
paper for the Non-partisan league is
a financial loss. The report states
that large sums of money have been
put in the Free Press by the national
Non-partisan league and that it has
been unable to get any accounting
from the management of the paper
is the substance of an auditing report
of the paper's business recently
made by D. A. Frost, Non-partisan
league auditor, which has just been
given publicity. The report of Frost
further emphasizes that the league
has been unable to secure any in
formation of the paper's financial
condition. It practically* embodies
the charge that the paper has sold
out the league thru not having con
ducted an aggressive league news
paper. It is also charged that the
paper has lost over $14,000 for its
stockholders and that it is in a bad
financial condition.

Findings to be Given to
Heads of School
District
School districts of the county are
planning on a more nearly equal sal
ary schedule for teachers this com
ing term and a meeting is to be held
in the near future to devise plans
whereby definite action can be taken.
A committee consisting of four
teachers, one clerk of school board,
of chairman of school board and one
layman will meet with Mrs. Grace
Faulconer, county superintendent of
schools to formulate the plan.
Salaries of teachers employed in
the county vary greatly and the com
mittee feels that in order to hold
teachers here and to acquire other
teachers the salary will have to be
raised and placed on a more qual
basis. The action of the Blackfoot
school board in giving a bonus for
the year/s work and the forming of a
new schedule of salaries for the new
year will also be discussed at the
meeting. '
Results of the committee's meet
ing will be presented to the meeting
of school trustees and an effort made
to have them adopt the findings.
