M . -+ Two are Arrested ■ for Leaving Fire Burning in Forest BOISE, Idaho.—That the forest service officials are determined to make an example of careless campers who cause fires In the forests is evi dent from the fact that they caused the arrest of J. A. Clayville and Melvin Hurst both of Boise and had them bound over for trial in the fed eral court. They were given a preliminary hearing before United States Com missioner John Jackson. They built a fire alongside of a tree-stump and after putting it, as they thought, left the camp. It seems the fire ran down into the stump and later burst out, but the flames were discovered by rangers before material damage was done. The forest officials, how ever, have repeatedly warned aginst not putting out camp fires, and be lieve that the time has come to make an example of those guilty. * Dutch Boy's Record is Equaled by "A Game Little Kid NEW YORK.—The Dutch boy who plugged up a hole in the dike with his hand and saved all Holland is a prototype of five-year-old Davey McCluskey of Harlem. Davey's arm got stuck in a fire hydrant for half an hour before six firemen took the hydrant apart and freed him. Davey and some chums found the cap of the hydrant loose and un screwed it. Davey shoved his left arm in up to the shoulder. When he tried to withdraw it, he couldn't, because of the suction. He didn't even whimper, while being rescued and the firemen shook hands with him and called him a "game little kid." But McCluskey Sr. happened along and Davey's reward was dif ferent than the Dutch boy's. + DANCING PARTY Complimenting their daughter Annis, Mr. and .Mrs. T. H.

CONGRESS TO HEAR VIEWS OF FARMERS Ageratum.r achitrave, Borneo) crashed beneath the tread of some heavy animal—a rhi noeerfts perhaps or possibly an orang utan. I might add, parenthetically. that orang-utan means. In the Malay language, man of the forest, while orang-outang, the name which we care lessly apply to the great authroimld. means ''man in debt."—E. Alexander Powell In Scribner's Magazine I I T of tile old town bnnd «ho after si these years hasn't completely lost his tpehnlque Is the Imss drummer Meeting Will be Held Under Direction of County Agents The American farm bureau feder ation has requested that an agricul tural hearing be held in every county in the United States. The county agent is to take charge of these hear ings and is asked to assume the role of prosecuting attorney and question farmers representing each kind of crops produced in order to draw from the farmer his opinion as to causes for existing conditions. The facts brought out by these hearings will be presented by the American farm bureau federation to a joint commission of agriculture in quiry made up of five senators and five representatives, now being held in Washington, D. C. By act of con gress said commission was created to investigate and report to Congress upon the following subjects; - First, the cause of the present condition of agriculture; second, the cause of the difference between the prices of agricultural products paid to the producer and the ultimate cost to the consumer; third, the compara tive condition of industries other than agriculture; fourth, the rela tion of price of commodities other than agricultural products, to such products; fifth, the banking and financial resources and credits of the country, especially as effecting agri cultural credit; sixth, marketing and transportation of facilities of the county. The commission is to include in its report recommendations for leg islation which in its opinion will tend to remedy existing conditions and shall specifically report upon the limitations of the powers of congress in enacting relief legislation. The commission is composed of the following: Sydna Anderson of Minnesota, chair man; Frank H. Funk of Illinois, Ogden L. Mills of New York, Peter G. TenEyck o$ New York, Hatton W. Summers of Texas and Senators Irvine L. Lenroot of Wisconsin, Arthur Capper of Kansas, Charles L. McNary of Oregon, Joseph T. Robin son of Arkansas and Pat Harrison of Missouri. Secretary Ross of the Idaho farm bureau federation says these reports are arriving dally and the outstand ing problems in this intermountain country developed by these hearings, are high freight rates, bad distribu tion, finance, failure of the retail trade to reduce their price below war period, which is the cause of the ap parent buyers strike. As a result all the* sacrifice made by the farmer in producing his crops at a loss, simply goes to swell the profits of the re . taller, and pay the increase in freight rates of the railroads, molly coddled by the government. Representatives + Shell Shock Victim is Found to he a New Mental Wizard Michael Nolan, the 'newly-dis covered mental wizard, who made a perfect score of 212 in thirteen min utes in the army alpha test, is a charter member of the Rainier Noble post of the American Legion at Seattle, Wash.

J.—The ancient and honorable game of golf is "corespon dent" in a divorce suit filed by Mrs. Rachel B. Hayward of Montclair, against Sterling P. Hayward. In affidavits filed with Vice Chan cellor Fielder Thursday, Mrs. Hay ward declared the game took so much of her husband's leisure that she scarcely ever saw him. Mr. Hayward's answer denies golf is responsible for their marital dif ficulties, which he attributes to dif ficulties with Mrs. Hayward's rela tives and to her discovery that he was not as wealthy as she had be lieved.

Occasionally tlie underbrush (south eastern -f He Never Loses It All Events Staged Within Fair Grounds Continued from page one leave no holes and borrow pits. The earth for all of these fills was taken from the high ground on the north ern side of the track, and a fine road way was graded from the tracks to wards the entrance to the stables, this being a part of the job of grad ing the whole plat so it will irrigate and make no puddles. The total cost of all improvements made on the fair grounds this season is about $2500 or will be by the time the grading and seeding is done and the fence finished. The total amount of donations made by stockholders to apply on this expense was $1640 up to Thursday morning, and $200 or $300 have been tendered since that, so it will be necessary to find $600 or $700 more to clear up the obligations that have been made. Not all of this expense has gone into im provements, for some of it is really maintenance such as clearing off the weeds and putting the track in con dition, expenses which the fair board Would have to meet 'just be fore fair time if it had not been done during the summer by this other plan. Last year they expended sev eral hundred dollars in clearing off weeds and putting the track in shape and this year at fair time it will be all done and done better than ever before. The improvement committee of the city council has decided to re build so much of the old ditches at the border of the park and the fair grounds as is necessary to get them into one system and that a straight one, lying right up against the new steel fence. Where the ditch runs under the road connecting the two parks they will put in a siphon of steel and concrete so there will be no rise at the crossing. In grading the ditch along the fence there will be suitable elevations left for the lo cation of shower bathp to drain into the ditch, so that when the town is ready to install them for the tourist camp all will be ready. The same committee thinks it best to remove the sod from that part of the park where the cook house is and grade it, fertilize , and pulverize it deep and relay the sod so it will water per fectly. It is now rough and after a watering it consists of alternate patches of dry ground and puddles. improvement committee wants to erect the concrete pillars at the east entrance of the park and place a steel archway over it about twenty-five feet wide and then let somebody plant Virginia creepers or Engleman's ivy to climb all over it. The committee is having the city water works extended to the cook house right away so it will be in use for tourists and fair visitors, and they express their approval of re setting some of the places where flowers and shrubs have been al lowed to : die and to undertake to keep them well tilled and protected hereafter. This part of the park management is given in connection with the fair because the two institu tions are so closely related they need joint management to some extent. The secretary and directors of the fair have decided that hereafter they will undertake to make the opening day of the fair the biggest and best day if there is any best day. They have a number of matters under con sideration which they hope to ma turo that will add greatly to the fun of the occasion, but we are not at liberty to make any announcements until positive engagements are com pleted. Editor Trego asked for the use of a booth or space at the exhibits hall from which to distribute the plants of the perennial pea, and this was granted without any charge since he was planning to give away something for public good which costs him some money to raise and pack and wrap ready to place in the hands of those receiving the plants. The board takes the view that the fair is con- ducted to advance the interests of the agricultural classes and to make better farms and better homes, and that anyone placing valuable plants free of charge in the hands of the people who have farms and homes, and teaching them how to make the plants grow into bowers of beauty that make homes more attractive and more beautiful was doing a ser- vice which they wanted to encourage for public good and for these reasons no charge is to be made for the space which Mr. Trego uses to store his crates of plants and for the workers to stay in while they do their work. Mr. Trego's offer to furnish the plants free and to advertise the plans of distribution methods of planting and raising the flowers was accepted with thankB. -Supt. L. C. Alcher of the experi mental farm at Aberdeen was pres ent, after havlhg missed a couple of meetings and he said it wap not due to any lack of Interest on his part or of his people in the south end of the county. He said the people were interested in receiving thd premium list so they could begin to plan for the exhibits and the contests and that Aberdeen is going to do ite-part to make a good fair. T. P. Fackrell was present after having missed one meeting and he predicts a hearty support from the people of Tholbas and Rockford. He says people are making a closer study than ever before of the things that make for successful farming and better products of all kinds. If anything new is introduced that ^jnakes a better product of the farm or yntd or feed lot than they have ^ een ** le . habit of raising they °l tff p^oiucL aJdley will examine tb e exhibits with keener interest to see w hat new things they can find and adopt that will add comfort or convenience to the farm and home. The board adjourned to meet next Friday at the probate court room at 10.30 in the morning, and anyone »K u rj* F r e i dgted at the farm bureau offlce H0W or attend the d i rec tors' meet The and the ing.
