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.

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
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
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.

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
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
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.
