Old friends look ask ance and if they talk with her or call on irer they ,unwittingly say something to her about the asylum or her insanity—subjects that should never be mentioned in her presence, and she feels very sensitive about it. The more sensitive she is, the more likely the guest or old friend is to feel the full measure of dif ference severing their old friend ship, and future visits are unlikely. This brings on isolation and its ac companying loneliness and worry and may result in another period of insanity that could have been avoided if the friends and neighbors had possessed proper understanding of the attitude they should take on her reutrn from the first period. Under the new plans of adminis tration, the new patient will not en ter the asylum at all if it can be avoided, but will be kept in the re ceiving hospital and never allowed to see or hear anything that suggests any ideas of a mad house. It will be referred to only as an illness and When she is well enough, friends will call, at the suggestion of the superintendent. strangers summoned from about town, but they will be cheerful and sympathetic and will chat with her about subjects suggested or recom mended by the superintendent, and the length of the call will be guaged by the needs of the case. When she is well enough to go for a drive, some one with a car and driver will take her out for a short drive, and she will be treated as a sick friend who is getting well and soon to go home. By the time she Is well enough to go home, these friends will have learned something of her friends at home, and will communicate with some willing one among them, and arrange for the home-coming and have an understanding among her friends and neighbors that they are to give thoughtful attention to Boclal or friendly calls and never refer to insanity or admit It in any way If it can be passed by as delirium. They vfill have been warned against re garding her with those searching glances that people are apt to give the Insane or one who has been In 0iat condition and In every way pos sible, save her the shock of ever knowing that she was Insane. That is the modern way of treat ing Insanity, and a number of real dents of Blackfoot have been found They may be who will start the service mentioned above, and be .subject to call, like the four-minute men were for speeches during the war. As the work becomes better understood, and its benefits are more generally real ized, more workers may enlist and do this free, voluntary service. Most Physicians from over Friday on legal business. of it can be done in leisure hours at times when people naturally go out for short drives anyhow, and such service will not only help to make the difference between failure and success in curing people, but will reverse several disagreeable features and relations of the asylum and the people of the state. It is hoped and rather expected that such methods and such service will keep the popu lation of the asylum from gaining in numbers much if any for a long time, for many will be cured, and the in curables now in confinement Will pass away as their time comes, and the general condition ampng the in mates will improve. Arrangements are being made for a clinic, or rather a number of clinics at the asylum this winter, when pa tients, one after another, will be ax amined and treatment arranged for with the hope of improving their condition, southern and eastern Idaho have of fered their services free, for two or three days at a time, and will be accepted and made use of under the direction of Dr. Hoover, the medical superintendent, afforded. A clinic is as assembly of doctors to study, examine and diagnose the cases brought to their attention and to attend to the surgery or treatment which their combined skill may ac cept as the best means for cure or relief. There are at present 328 patients in the asylum, and it is thought that a good many can be cured and sent home in the next few months. They are all well fed and very well housed, but there are not as many attend ants as there should be per number of patients kept, and it is thought that by making some changes in the plans of farming and gardening and handling of the herds and flocks, keeping only those animals on the farm that help to feed the people of the institution, cutting out the sum mer herd in the hills and in various ways increasing the production and eatable income of the lands, that it can be made more nearly self-sup porting that it is now. In the re arrangement of the heating plant, some expense has been saved in coal consumption and greater comfort Attorney W. H. Witty and A. E. Fridenstlne were up from Pocatello + Policy Holders makes an interesting piece of history that thoughtful men like to listen to. It used to be that many men became discouraged and allowed life insurance to lapse, and it required constant efforts to hold the business, but owing to the liberality of the modern policies the lapsing is grow ing less and less, and men guard their life insurance as their most valuable property. In the earlier days of life insur ance it was considered that such insurance was only, for men and women of advanced years who were facing the prospect of death, but modern practices have reversed that. It used to be considered a foolish investment for a young person to be paying annual dues to a life insur ance company with prospects of a long life ahead, but there is nothing more certain than death, and insur ance rates have been scientifically adjusted so that the young person pays a low rate and has protection a ll his life from the risk of death and a worthless or embarrassed estate. People have learned that the dues paid in by the young person not only serve to protect him all his life but that it helps to make up the fund from which somebody's widow is being protected and supported every day. There is an old saying that we cannot have our cake and eat it, but life insurance is built up on that very practice, that the young person tak ing life insurance has protection all the time and an estate built up on it that is good at his death or avail able in old age if he chooses to draw It. It used to be that if a man did not pay up on hfs life insurance right on time, Tt lapsed and he lost his policy, but Beebe policies have a loan value and an automatic preserving value that carry them over long per iods of misfortune. Many men have borrowed money on their policies during the present stringency to tide their business over, so that the old risk of lapse in hard times has changed into an asset in hard times.

City Council Hold Meeting Continued from page one way to ask congress for a grant of that amount of land by making amendment to H. R. bill number 5898 and asking for the approval of the secretary of the Interior. The land would be valued at $1.25 acre, and Mr. Smith thinks it ad visable to ask congress to authorize remitting even that charge and make it an absolute grant to the city of Blackfoot for the use of the Boy Scouts and for other public purposes, the city having the responsibility or its government, and guaranteeing that it shall not be used for private purposes, but for public good in pro viding a place of amusement for all proper applicants, adopted a resolution in harmony with Mr. Smith's suggestions and forwarded it. There has been an indiscriminate slashing of timber and natural growth in the canyon and each year sees some of the beauty of the place destroyed. The brush that is trim med off in winter and thrown about promiscuously seems to be thrown into the stream more than any other place, and with the coming of the spring freshets, this gets compressed together and gorges the stream, causing it to tear its banks and wash out the road and make it impassably. Thoughtful men go out and witness this damage and utter some curses and repair the roads, only to see the offenses repeated with each succeed ing season. When these things can be controlled and the roads kept In good repair, the people of the valley for great distances will find a little world of natural beauty in every gulch.

Phone 318J11 Turkey Raising Becomes Profitable (Continued from Page 1) of turkeys that beginning at Christ mas time they sold a total of f5,600 worth of the birds. The chief and his assistant are serving life terms for taking human lives and their work with the turkeys has become in important part of the revenue of the institution. A few years ago a Blackfoot man was warden at the peniteniary and he took to raising flowers on the grounds and pushed that interprise with great interest during his admin istration, the prisoners doing all the work. Some years ago the penitentiary herd of milk cows was found to be turning out a rather unsatisfactory amount of milk and butter and they called the prisoners all together and Inquired if there were any dairymen among them. A man rose and said that he had had quite an extended experience in operating a dairy in Wisconsin and. understood the busi ness quite well. The warden held a conference with mm and it was arranged that he should take the management of the dairy herd in every detail and should be given as much help as he wanted on his plan. He said he would not like to take the management of the herd unless he had absolute control of it and had the backing of the management of the institution in putting the dairy herd into profitable production. He said it would take some time to do that and they should not expect im mediate results. He was given full charge of the dairy herd with; all the help he wanted and gradually Increased the product until they had all the milk they needed for the prisoners, made all the butter that was needed to supply them with butter for break fast, now. they sell- enough butter to supply the soldiers' home. Before they got the dairy herd to producing properly, they supplied syrup on the breakfast table and it took $5 worth of syrup every morning, about $150 worth of syrup for a month. Now the prisoners have butter in thd place of syrup and it is much better and it costs them very little to pro duce the butter. The investment in the dairy herd and the investment In the farm that produces the feed for the herd is about all it costs. The production of the dairy herd from the same number of cows ia said to be about four times what it was before they got the real dairy man to take charge of them and this item ought to be of some value to farmers of Bingham county who are wondering whether their cows are profitable or not. We heard another penitentiary story recently that runs like this. It was costing $1000 a month for coal for the prison and less than a mile away was a saw mill where a great deal of saw dust and waste from the mill were being thrown out. They had plenty of labor about the institution and somebody sug gesed that the prisoners might just as well be hauling saw dust and waste from the mill to use and waste the mill for fuel and save the cost of the coal, ing squad was organized accordingly and they hauled saw dust and wood all summer and fall and stored it in such a way that they could use it for fuel and it lasted well into the winter, saving $1000 a month on the coal bill. Some observing fellow noticed that the electric lights were not turned off when they were out of service or not needed and said .that a great deal of money might be saved on the light bills, gestion was taken and acted upon, they installed meters to measure the consumption of the electric current, lights were turned off whenever they were no longer needed and they re month to about $50 a month. The duced their light bill from $500 a prisoners themselves took a lively interest in reducing the light bill to as low a point as possible.

He says that in these times when society is launching out in so many new ventures, the young folks are also launching out in new ventures that are in many cases no surprise to the officers and often the parents are astounded when they get full information about it. warned all parents against assum ing that their own particular child ren are free from these ventures. He says the circumstances as brought out by the officers in the state con the investigation which he told them about has proved that no homes were too good or too refined to be attacked by the evil he referred to and that the thing to do was to govern their household and know what their young folks are doing when they are out for amusement. He deplored the custom of attending picture shows promis cuously without any idea of what kind of shows they were to see. He charged a great deal of the corrup tion of youth to the poorer classes of picture shows or lack of selection. He says he is in favor of picture shows if they are the right kind. He says that picture shows have a great place in the education of the American public, but that they may also be a source of great harm.
