FOOTBALL IIBIE NEXT SATURDAY Twin Falls Will Flay Pocatello High School. LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL IN FINE CON DITION FOR GAME. Spy from Pocatello High School At tempts to Get Signals. Basket Ball Game la the Morning. Next Saturday the knights of the gridiron will meet in battle at the ball park, when the Twin Falls high school team will play its second game this season with the Pocatello high school. From the reports that have come down the line, the Gate City lads think they have a cinch and are prepared to walk all over the prostrate frames of the boys here. Coach Pierce has a dif ferent opinion and has been making special effort since the Albion game to strengthen the weak spots in the team work and is pretty confident that his protegies will play all around the visitors. The boys have a light team compared with other high schools, but they have in a large de gree made up for this lack of weight by the speed with which they get into every play. This fact, together with the more open plays of this year, should go a long way toward making them formidable opponents of any team in the league. The game will be called at 2:30 and every rooter in the city should turn out and give the home team good support. There is nothing that puts a team on its mettle like good backing from the rooters. The basket-ball and foot-ball teams are practising very industriously for their games with the Pocatello high school next Saturday. They expect a desperate struggle and are preparing for it with a vim. The basket-ball team has a reputation to sustain and the foot-ball team is working as hard to establish one. The boys are somewhat riled over the fact that a Pocatello youth was on the field Monday evening and procured their signals and a num ber of their pet plays before they were aware of his presence. In the morning the high school girls will play basket ball with the girls from the Pocatello school at the ball park at ten-thirty. The girls have the last year's team for the most part, and have every intention of winning from their rivals by a heavy score. Get out and cheer for them and also help to pay expenses by your two bits. ANOTHER BUILDING FOfi MAIN AVENUE. George Lacy to Build Two-Story Pressed Br<ck Block.

The auditorium was packed last Tuesday evening on the occasion of the first number of the lecture course. Franklyn Pierce Jolly of Joliet, cer tainly was a credit to his name and to the subject "The Jolly Side of Life." Every word of his lecture fell upon appreciative ears and his portrayal of the jolly way showed him not only a master of the art of being jolly, but having the gift of character deliniation down to the same degree of perfection. His marvelous word imageries and mental pictures were fully accentuat ed by his brief transmission to pathos and vivid description of the San Fran cisco disaster. His interpretation of James Whitcomb Riley completely won his audience. The next number, Manager Colles claims, is the star number, and the four musical artists should be greet ed by a magnificent house. It will not be Twin Falls' good fortune to secure many such attractions. The follow ing short sketch of the artists may serve in a way to enlighten the Twin Falls people as the treat which Is in store for them October 22: Forrest Dabney Carr, the eminent basso cantante, late of the Maurice Grau Grand Opera company, is well known throughout the United States as an artist of exceptional ability. Be sides his grand opera experience he has been on tours for the Damrosch and Seidl orchestra, the Clementine De Vere and other concert compan ies. He possesses a voice of remark able compass, powerful and under ad mirable control, and a stage presence at once dignified and graceful, and it has placed him in the foremost ranks of grand opera singers. As a concert singer he is exceptionally fine, and in cludes in his repertoire the best that can be had in ballads as well as the leading bass solos from the famous in in a operas. Florence Gertrude Smith has gen uine dramatic ability as well as a beautiful colorature soprano voice. As prima donna in opera she has sung in almost every city of over 10,000 inhab itants in the United States and Can ada, having appeared in over 1,000 op eratic performances in the last four years; therefore with her experience and that of Mr. Carr, these two artists are able to give duets from scenes in grand and English opera as a promin ent feature of programs. Earl J. Pfouts is one of the most talked about and talented violinists in New York City today. Only four years ago Mr. Pfouts came to New York from Chicago, where he had been studying with Leopold Kramer with splendid success. Upon his arrival in New York he went to Max Bendrix, and afterwards to Michael Banner, oc casionally playing concerts in a mod est way, until one day a famous im pressario heard him play and imme diately engaged him as soloist for the great Duss Festival Concerts, Military Band and Symphony Orchestra Con certs held at Madison Square Garden. After having played a week, so great was his success that he was at once re-engaged for another week. Mr. Ovide Musin, the great Belgian violin ist, was in the city at the time and was so impressed with Mr. Pfouts' playing that he offered him his magnificent Strad. to play on for the farewell con cert. Edwin M. Shonert needs no intro duction to the American music-loving people. As a pianist Mr. Shonert has certainly held his own, having played in many transcontinental tours with many of the great artists of the world. He is one of the few pianists who possess plenty of temperament with a great technic, consequently his suc cess is always Instantaneous. Falls Heir to Fortune. Rumor has it that the news agent on the Minidoka-Twin Falls branch will soon left to him by an uncle in New York City. It is hoped that it will turn out to be the truth, as "Ike," as he is call ed, is a prime favorite with the trav eling public. A law firm of New York City has been tracing him for more than a year, trying to find out if he was living or dead, and through a firm in Salt Lake, finally located the gentlemen on the branch line. The amount coming is something like $50,000, and will fix the gentleman in good shape for the rest of his days. come into a good size fortune, For Rent—A large furnished room with bath and modern conveniences.

TRUSTEE OF DeLONG ESTATE FUL FILLS PROMISE OF CLIENT. Hill & Taylor's Office the Center of Attraction While the Contest Was On. Two years ago M. D. DeLong placed his property adjoining the original townsite on the west, on the market in one-acre tracts and to every pur chaser was given one chance on the remaining property which contained the DeLong home. The house and lot were to be awarded by lot as soon as the whole number of lots, thirty-two in number, were sold. The lots sold rapidly and were disposed of some time ago, but in the meantime Mr. De Long, who had gone to France, died across the seas and the estate passed into the hands of a trustee, Richard Cookingham, of this city. Due to the fact that the property was scattered, a delay was caused in settling the af fairs and so the drawing was not made possible until yesterday, when the holders of the thirty-two numbers were notified to be present at Hill & Taylor's office for the allotment. M. S. Cookingham of New York City, attorney for the estate, conducted the drawing and 6aw to it that the num bers in the box were thoroughly mix Miss Brittomart Wolfe, blindfold ed, then drew out the lucky number, which 19, and was held by A. N. Spra gue, who became possessor of a good house and two acres of property worth $2500. Due to some mistake, it was an nounced at the drawing that C. E. Booth was the holder of the number 19, and it was not until the news came to the ears of Mr. Sprague that the mistake was .discovered, and it was found that Sprague's number was 19 and Booth's number was 9. ed.
