Twin Falls Baseball Team on Home
Diamond Proves Boise Visitors to be
(Sbam)rocks of Invincibility.

The heavy dow^n-pour on Saturday
threatened to entirely end any chance
of a game unless it could be water
polo, but the grounds by Sunday after
noon were found to be in a passable
condition, although by no means fast
The visitors, held down by Pitcher
Murphy's hot shoots, were unable to

boys as they did at Boise, and the way

derful. Long, the pitcher for Boise,
proved so easy that a new pitcher,
Kid Wells, entered the box for
the latter part of the game, and saved
Boise from a worse defeat. Seven to two
in favor of the locals was the way the
score board looked tor the first game.
Mbnday morning proved a disap
pointment in every way. The home
team were not up to standard, and the
small crowd of fans failed to liven up
a bit. Costly errors on the part of the
locals gave the visitors five runs, only
two of which were earned. Bliss pitched
in championship form and had the
support been up to standard, would
have won easily. The feature of the
game was. Case's home run over left
field fence, a hit that has only been
duplicated once this season.
A better crowd with lots of vim
cheered the home team in the after
noon and at the critical times gave the
team a hearty support. Murphy with
his perfect control, went in for the lo
cals, while the renowned "Hetty"
Green tossed them over for Boise, and,
by the way, Mr. Green's only claim to
a profesisonal name exists in the Boise
Statesman, unless It can be for the
wonderful record made for kicking on
every decision of the umpire. Errors
were bountiful on both sides and from
the viewpoint of baseball was very
bum, yet every fan was keyed up to
the highest pitch during the game.
Four scores In the first inning made
the game look like a cinch for the vis
itors and that impression was gaining
ground during the first six innings
while Boise pounded out eight runs,
and Twin Falls gathered In only five.
In the seventh by straight stick work,
assisted by an occasional error, the
locals increased their score to ten and
settled the game. Too much credit
cannot be given to Murphy for the
manner in which he pulled an up-hill
game out of the hole and to Kinney
for his fast fielding and heavy stick
work.

HIGHEST PRICED CORNER IN CITY.
Perrine & Burton Sell to Twin Fulls
Hank & Trust Company.
A deal that has surprised any thing
yet p tiled off In the way of real estate
sales, was consumated this week when
the Twin Falls Bank & Trust com
pany nurchased from the pioneer mer
chants, Perrine & Burton, their two
lots and store buildings on the cornor
of Mein and Shoshone. The amount
paid, while not authentically given, is
said to be $23,000 or $460 a front foot,
and judging by the way that real es
tate has been selling is not a high
price for the best corner in the city.
The former owners four years ago
purchased the lots for $1,750.
The lots in question will without a
doubt be graced with one of the finest
buildings in the city, as being too val
uable to remain unused to the fullest
extent.
The Ladies' Circle of the Baptist
church will meet at the home of Mrs.
McKee, on Thursday, October 15th, at
2 p. m. Every lady interested in this
good work should make it a point to
be present as we need you.

Due to effective work of the court

way beyond the expectation of every

only 2 against. In Ward 4, occupied to
a large extent by business houses,
came down the line with a vote of 274
for and only 11 against. Only one
man in Ward 2 voted against the issue
and the voters of that district are of
the opinion that that one was a mis
take.
Buhl, with the busy, bustling oppo

to that expectation and cast 167 votes
against public improvements and pro

radical, and only cast two-thirds

\
a
Plans are nearly completed this
week at the office of Ball Brothers for
a camera-phone opera house for this
city. The building as planned by the
architects, will be fifty by one hun
dred and twenty-five feet, and will be
fixed up in first-class style with raised
seats and ventilating shafts and a full
stage in order that it can be used for
putting on theatricals also. The ma
terial used will be concrete blocks,
and it is the intention of the com
pany to make the building a credit to
the city.
The camera-phone is a combination
of the motion pictures and phone
graphs in a single machine, which as
the pictures are shown endows them
with «-peech and in a large measure
takes the place of the drama. Only a
few of the machines aAe in use at pres

BASKET BALL TEAM PROVES TOO
STRONG FOR ALBION.
Games Played In Snow In Which Al
bion's Superior Weight Aided In
Football Victory.
Sunday the high school basket ball
and foot ball teams returned from Al
bion, where they played the first games
of the season.
The basket ball game was set for
10:30 a. m., Saturday, and in spite of
the fact that over an inch of rain had
fallen the previous night, and that it
was snowing, the game was pulled off
as scheduled,
the high school team fell a little short
in team work. The frame of the bas
ket at which the Twin Falls forwards
During the first half
were throwing was broken, making it
very hard to throw a goal. Neverthe
less at the end of the half the score
stood three to two in the high school's
favor. The teams changed goals at
the beginning of the second half, and
the Twin Falls girls began playing in
old form. Although the normal girls
continued their fine team-work, they
were unable to keep the ball from Ida
Cryder and Dinah Durkee, the high
school forwards, who were always in
good position, cool and deliberate, and
never failed in placing it in the bas
ket. In this half the Twin Falls
guards, Hazel Shields and Bertha Mc
Dougal, played the game so well that
the Albion forwards were able to score
Phoebe Durkee played a
hut once.
good game at center. She was quick
and accurate, and soon learned her
opponent's tactics. At the close of the
game the score stood sixteen to five In
Twin Falls' favor.
The foot ball game was played Sat
urday afternoon. The rain and snow
storm was still in progress, and the
field was very muddy. This placed the
Twin Falls boys, who were much light
er than the Albion boys, at a great dis
advantage. Besides this, only one or
two of the high school had ever played
In a game, while many of the normal
are old players, having been with their
team several years.
Falls boys appeared on the field with
little Harry Benoit for quarterback the
Albion boys were heard to laugh and
say they hated to spoil the "kids' '' new
suits in that mud. However, as soon
as the game started, Albion saw it was
joke and at the end they said
"That Is the nerviest bunch of kids we
ever meet."
Albion kicked off to Twin Falls ana
the 'ball was fumbled, Albion securing
the pii skin near the Twin Falls goal.
By a se» les of line rushes and end runs
coupled \vith the forward pass, Albion
was successful in carrying the oval
across Twin Falls' goal line,
failed to kick goal. Albion again kick
ed off to Twin Falls and Captain Old
ham made an excellent catch- and ran
the ball back for a good gain. Line
plunges did not give the blue and gray
the yardage necessary and they were
forced to punt. Albion secured the
ball and made some good gains,
sending fullback through right guard.
Albion failed to make her yaidage on
the two downs and punted well into
Twin Falls territory. Twin Falls re
turned the punt and Captain Mahnken
the ball back about 15 yards. Al
bion again resorted to line plunges and
end runs and gradually pushed Twin
Falls across her goal line, thus secur
ing a second touch down. Albion again
failed to kick goal. At the beginning
of the second half Twin Falls kicked

far down toward the opponent's goal.
The ball charged back and forth, both
sides doing considerable punting. Twin
Falls used a double pass play and
Shields got away for a good gain. Twin
Falls and Albion both failed to com
plete the forward pass. With but two
minutes to play, Albion sent fullback
through Twin Falls' line for a good
long gain and then sent Mahnken
around the end for a touch down. Al
bion again failed to kick goal. The
game ended with a score of 15 to 0 in
favor of Albion. The Twin Falls boys
although most of them were new men
on the gridiron, fought like heroes.
The backs and ends did some sensa
tional tackling and the line men proved
themselves invincible at times.

Boosts for twin falls.
Prof. P. G. Holden of Ames, Iowa,
who is responsible for the develop
ment of corn raising from the old style
to modern scientific methods, has been
making a trip through Idaho. He has
just returne 1 from a visit through the
southern part of this state, where be
has been looking especially over the
West End Twin Falls project. He then
returned to Towa.
During his stay here, Prof. Holden
suggested to Governor Gooding that a
new agricultural college should be es
tablished in southern Idaho.
"Southern Idaho, especially the Twin
Falls district and the country around
the west end, is bound to he one of the
fertile spots in America," said Prof.
Holden in an interview yesterday.
"The soil, climate and irrigation
possibilities are unequalled anywhere
in the country," he continued. "Com
will be a great source of revenue with
you. It is simply a question of a fen
seasons until you get the corn beet
suited to your country.
"Your soil in the great sage brush
plains awaits the magic touch of water
to make the so-called desert blossom
with everything that can be raised in
the temperate zone.
"The great Snake valley, the Sal
mon valley, the Cedar creek country,
and all the territory south and west of
Buhl, has great possibilities. I expect
within the very near future to see a
great, happy and prosperous commun
ity In those places.
"I am loyal to Iowa of course, but
Iowa Is, so to speak, already here, and
Idaho is yet to arirve. You have only
started. You are in your infancy. I
shall watch the great country west of
Twin Falls with much interest, now
that I have seen it in its primitive
state and know of the plans on foot to
develop It."—Statesman.

L. I. Benoit, has been purchased by
Messrs. A. C. Jenner and W. J. Landln,
the change taking effect October 1st.
Mr. Jennes is an energetic young man
formerly of Minnesota, who arrived
during the opening.
Mr. Landin has arrived lately from

COLLECI GRAIN
FROM TRACT
East to Be Invaded With Twin
falls Displays.
I. B. PERR1NE WILL MAKE ADVER
TISING TRIP WITH PROOFS
OF HARVEST.
Farmers Are Asked to Bring In the
Best of the Agricultural'Products In
Order that Twin Falls May be
Boosted.
Through the efforts of I. B. Perrine,
two cars have been secured from the
Oregon Short line to transport free of
charge to Chicago and Pittsburg, a
sample of everything that is grown on
the Twin Falls tract. The farmers are
earnestly requested to take this matter
up and bring samples of their products
to A. McPherson at the Irrigated
Lands office, who will see that it is
properly taken care of.
They want samples of grains, grasses
vegetables, fruit and in fact everything
that Is grown on the tract and not in
less quantities than a bushel each, so
that it can be divided up and sent to
both cities. The product that comes in
sacks should have a card inside with
the doner's name and address on, so
that the farmer who raised it can get
proper credit for the same.
The object is to put these products
on exhibition in the above named cit
ies to show those who are not familiar
with Southern Idaho and more espec
ially the Twin Falls tract, what can
be grown in this wonderful country.
It is hoped that this matter will be
taken up with a vim and the two cars ■
filled by the 14th of this month, as
they are due to leave here on the 15th,
without fail.
I. B. Perrine offers $10.00 in cash to
the farmer who will bring in the best
bushel of potatoes raised on the tract
and $5.00 for the second best. For the
best one-half bushel of wheat, $5.00,
quality and yield taken Into considera
tion, and for the second best $2.50. The
same amount will be payed for the
same amount of oats. Remember all
must be in by the 14th of this month as
the cars leave on the 15th.
