Subscription price * |3.00 per Year IDAHO WRITER WINS Earl Wayland Bowman, Idaho author and journalist has "arrived" in the circle of American letters. His articles and stories are commenc ing to appear in national magazines. The story of the road-runner in Feb ruary American magazine, entitled. "Blunt Nose," will be a winning opener. It was to that story that an advertisement of the Central Meat Market referred recently, and which brought from Mr. Bowman the characteristic letter published in this issue of The Republican. Mr. Bowman was a newspaper worker in the middle west for mans years, then his health collapsed, and lie was ordered farther west. He came to Idaho, to the Payette and Emmett region, and went to home steading. He helped develpp that wonderful fruit country and per formed several coups-d'etat in pub licity, getting up exhibits and taking them to big fairs of national im portance. We all wish Mr. Bowman the sue cess he deserves and if our judg ment is sound he is on the high-road, The story "Blunt Nose" is splendidly told. In fact, the American maga zine is noted for choosing that kind of literature, and its recognition means a smoother way to any toiling writer, the best in the land not I barred—F. C. K.

Farms Located in Death Valley Death valley—the most horrible desert on the face of the earth, source of weird mysteries and in numerable tragedies—has yielded to the hand of man to make a garden therein. Furnace Creefi ranch, as the Death valley farm is known, enjoys many distinctions. Its sixty-five acres of cultivated land constitutes the most isolated farm in the world, produc ing food in the midst of a desert in ferno, where temperature and at mospheric pressure are almost be yond the limits of plant and animal endurance. Obviously the introduction of an abundant water supply was the prime requisite to make the ranch possible. This is obtained from two large springs far back in the Funeral mountains, which pour their streams upon the burned-out Dealth valley soil thru two great aqueducts, one of steel and one of masonry. White men cannot live long in the withering heat. Consequently all the work about the ranch is done by Indians of the Piute and Shoshone tribes under the direction of an edu cated foreman. The average life of a white man in Death valley is very short. Three white foreman em ployed on the rancn lasted two sum mers each, and perished during the third. Two others went insane, and attempted to flee out of the valley on foot. Neither of them lived to get out of the maze of Funeral mountain canons. The present fore man has survived seven summers, and is soon entering upon his eighth, He attributes his ability to resist the heat to his superb constitutioh, tem perate habits and hygienic living, He lias attained a degree of comfort I hy constructing a large fan driven by water power. During the hottest days of the summer lie makes his bed in front of the fan after sprinkl ing the floor and wetting his blankets. For all work is then done I a J n *Sht, when the temperature over valley floor descends to about * , degrees. , In addition to being a Sort of mira c e ^ arm ' Furnace Creek Ranch is also a traveler s relief station, serv ing the barren blazen wastes of Death valley and the Funeral mount ain country much the same as £t. Beranard hospice does the high Alps of Switzerland. Its very existence lias saved the life of many a lost traveler or prospector who staggered within its boundaries with parched throat and speechless swollen tongue. Assistance under such cir cumstances is never refused. If the victim of the desert lias money with whicli to pay for his rescue, well and good; if not, he receives it gratis, on a hill just back of the ranch are a number of mounds—the graves of thirst-tortured souls who tottered into the ranch too late to be saved by water. * Small I nriiftf Rrnnrl omau L-OCUSI 01*00(1 -* Due This Year IS This is another "seventeen-year locust year," but in a small section I of the country—mainly the valley of the Connecticut river in Massachu I setts and Connecticut, with a sep I arate d colony near Fall River, Mass.

As there illus trated, the big matching machine resembles a retailer's refrigerator, and is complete in itself. Two large oil heaters are installed at the rear, and a partitioned cross chamber is lined with hot-water pipes, with electric fans at the top. The air is forced down around the pipes and up thru the egg chambers, adjusted ventilators at the top keep ing evaporation at a minimum. By a special arrangement, all the eggs can be turned in five minutes. A smaller model, of 2440-egg capacity, is also made in similar form. a + WHOSE BUCK IS THIS?

Bower, Blackfoot, K. 4, box 105A. adv. 27a The peak of high prices looks more like a tableland.—Boston Herald, HOOK'! ' f ! More Bachelors for Your Approval—Faint Heart Ne' er Won a Man LOOK THEM OVER Cupid's Assistant Gives More Information on How to do It , This is a funny world, the more in formation you put out the more they want and the more they get the more dissatisfied they are and the more dissatisfied they are the more in formation they want and here we are back at the beginning again. But the reason for all this is a letter which came to The Republican of fice. This particular sister wanted a little red hot dope on how she could tell when she fell in love and how It effected her. She insisted .hat she couldn't ask a man to look at her every morning during the rest of her life unless she loved him and she didn't know anything about how this love came. It was a real nice letter, but because it was a little con fidential in parts and extremely per sonal in some other parts, our mod esty forbids our printing it. How l/ive Comes How love comes is a perfectly simple question to answer. W'e read an article by a young lady not long ago who has had several tries at this true love stuff and she puts it like this. "Love comes like the dawn. Timidly he casts the first rays of his wondrous brilliance across the maid en's path. And then like the rising sun that lifts like a fiery ball in the east, bit by bit, he comes into full view, beautiful and wonderful to be hold. He dazzles a maiden by his glory and holds her enraptured by his splendor—he lights anew the path her feet may tread, no longer weary—a royal road to happiness. A wondrous thing for any maid it is—the dawn of love." Oh boy, pretty swell, this dawn of love. You tellum. The Right Man This choosing the right man to buy your silk stockings and $18.00 shoes is a serious proposition. None of us are exactly perfect altho per haps one or two of us come pretty close to it, but you can't get away from the fact that we'll say gosh dingit now and then, smoke a cigarette, a pipe or a cigar .shoot a game of pool, play a little pinochle, stay out late when we get a chance; there are a lot of things we'll do that could be improved, but there are also a lot of things we don't do. Fr'instance. None of us drink as much as we used to and a good many of us have quit altogether, so there isn't much chance of your grabbing a drunkard. sep The Habits of Men Back in 1916, Mr. Trego, in refer ence to the habits of a man said, "There is something about a man you have got to accept along with the rest, and make the best of it. If it is booze you had better pass him up. If it is billiards, or baseball or horse races, or long sitting with other men talking of sports, it isn't necessary that you try to make him over. Not many men are as com panionable with their wives as their wives would like to have them. A man has a certain amount of the dickens in him and when he is made perfect he immediately becomes an angel, and then you don't have any chace to propose to him. If you de cide to marry a man take him as he is and make the most of his good traits and humor him in the least offensive of his bad ones. If he smokes don't try to stop him for it will only'make trouble because he won't stay put. Better have a soft cushfon in his smoking chair, be* deck the floor with a foot stool, a pair of slippers and a cuspidor and help him to the feeling that this is the best place on earth to smoke. We still have a number of eligble bachelors for your aproval. Look them over, pick one of them out, and lay your plans for the battle. A Bachelor Rancher We have with us today, ladies, women and girls. Mr. Dick Stevens for your approval. Back four years ago he was a bachelor and he still is. In the files of ihe Republican we find that he was a rancher and had had experience in a number of varied businesses from a banker to a re porter, so he is a good prospect. We find Dick Is cheerful and light hearted by nature and you girls will need a man who can smile when you spring a new spring hat bill on him. Dick prefers blondes, we can prove it by a letter he wrote, and he says he can be serious for a long time if he thought it would win him a woman. He has a telephone and its the same number that was given four years ago, 264R1. If a fellow can keep the same telephone num ber for four years, he's stable and almost settled down. Think It over, girls, and call him up. be as S Athelelic Bill If you like them tall, light haired, give William Parkinson the He's a draughtsman, you know, one of those birds that draw a lot of lines on a piece of paper and no one but themselves can figure out what they mean. And not only that, he's an athlete ,got a trunk full of decorations he got In. Provo, you could use them to decorate the house. No, you're wrong, not the place you're thinking about, It was the B. Y. U. he attended in Provo. And besides all that, he was an of once over. there were a lot of os in the army that couldn't, get to be.* shavetail., Bill ia a good looking guy too, wean a pompadour most of the time and would sure look irell. across the breakfast table every morning. Mark Tnohy One of our ibost promising! young business men, as they say in the society columns, is Mark Tuohy. Mark is with the Rowles-Mack com pany. .tegular business man Mark, always dresses well and a good looking fellow. The only thing there is wrong about him Is that not long ago he started a mustache. He didn't keep it long because it didn't live up to his expectations, but ought to always be held against him. And besides that he was quite an actor in formed days, no amatuer preformance was complete' without him, but of late he has given it up and sticking to business. Mark wanted to be one of the first to fight in our late war and joined the ma rines, but they railroaded him to Cuba and there he stayed. Look him over closely, women, he'll bear investigation. Busy Fremont The busiest man in- town Is Fre mont Kutnewsky, advertising man ager for The Republican. A number of years ago Fremont was the enter prising young reporter on the paper, but not any more, he has a much higher rank than that. Rather shy young fellow, but down in his heart he thinks all women are* beautiful, and especially blondes, and one of these days, unless you beat him to it, he's going to step out aud grab off one of these beautiful women. Back in 1916 it was said "he is a brunette, wears glasses and when he smiles he shows a good set of teeth with a little gold in >hem. If you want to identify him yon can provoke a smile and look for the gold fillings." He still smiles and the best way to get a smile from him is to step up and declare that you are the woman he has been looking for all his life. He'll give you a look at his gold teeth and then call your bluff. Try it. And Lastly There is another fellow In The Re-' publican office with a smile that is Continued next issue * Financing for Wool Growers Made Easy The licensing of wool warehouses under the United States warehouse act gives to wool growers facilities for credit which approach those en joyed .by other business men, accord ing to a statement issued by the bureau of markets, United States de partment of agriculture. The purpose of the act, says the bureau, is to make It possible to Is sue a receipt of such Integrity for wool stored in a licensed warehouse that it can be easily negotiated and widely used by the grower, ware houseman, manufacturer or other depositor owning it in financing the storafe and marketing of wool. The value of licensed warehouse receipt is based on the following points; (1) It is issued by a ware houseman licensed by and bonded to the United States, who operates under government supervision, a warehouse which has been examined and found to be a. suitable place for the storage of wool by a federal in spector; (2) the conditions under which the receipt is issued make it reliable evidence of the ownership, quality, quantity and other condtions of the wool for which it is issued.

Special Ruling on Government Insurance Tinder a new and very liberal rul ing of far-reaching importance to millions of former service men, is sued by Director R. G. Cholmeley Jones of the bureau of war risk in surance with the approval of secre tary of the treaturer, Carter Glass, war risk (term) insurance, regard less of how long it may have been lapsed or canceled, and regardless of how long the former service man may have been discharged, may be reinstated any time before July 1, 1920.

It consists of a hand-operated air pump, provided with an outlet pipe that can be screwed into spark plug hole, and equipped with a dial pressure gauge, Loose pistons and leaky intake or exhaust valves can be detected by adjusting the engine to different positions, and forcing air into the cylinders with the device. Compression can be investigated by cranking the motor and observing the gauge, whicli indicates the pres sure in the cylinder. NEW BARROW HAS TWO WHEELS ACTING AS ONE Greatly increased weight-carrying capacity and ease of operation are advantages claimed for a novel wheel barrow illustrated in the March Popular Mechanics Magazine. Instead of being equipped with a single wheel, placed in front of the body in the customary manner the new device is provided with two ex tr t a large weels, cambered to such extent that their rims nearly touch at a point directly under the bent axle on which they revolve. Prac tically all of the load Is borne by the wheels.
