PACKING PLANT AT POCATELLO VERY SOON Former Buhl Mayor Tells of What is Proposed in the New Enterprise in This State, "Bids for a modern packing plant are being opened by our people in Pocatello today," said E. W. Byrne, former mayor of Buhl, who was here Saturday in the interest of the Fales Huston Packing company, of which he is the purchasing agent, tention is to furnish a market for the surplus hogs that now go to Los Angeles and Omaha," he continued, "paying a .better price and saving time for the shipper. It takes from a week to ten days to take a carload of hogs to Los Angeles, and get back, while it is possible to go to Pocatel lo with a load one day and return the next. If we get what we want we can pay more for them, on account of the closeness of the market. Hogs are now shipped to Los Angeles or "Our in Omaha and the product is shipped back. This extra freight charge both ways can be saved. "It is possible for farmers to get their hogs on the market in from six to eight months. Feeding them on al falfa with a little grain of any kind, they can be kept fat at slight cost and placed on the market early with a very large profit. In my opinion, however, and investigation by experts confirms this opinion, the gest ham and bacon is produced by a mixture of peas and barley. The product of this feed is superior to that produced by corn or by any other food. "There are small packing plants over the Twin Falls tract in this city, Buhl and other places. It is our in tention to co-operation with them in such a manner as will be mutually benilioial. The packing industry in this country is in its infancy and the Pocatello plant will till a long telt want by taking care of the surplus which has been heretofore shipped away. Many farmers have taken stock in the company after the most searching investigation, and others are yet subscribing but whether they are interested in that feature of the busi ness or not we want them to investi gate our plan and find out what we want so that we may supply it. I shall be purchasing agent and expect to meet the people, but we would be glad to answer any questions sent to us at Pocatello. The new plant will be finished and in operation by June 1st' NEW FILER THEATRE IS OPENED TONIGHT Structure is Credit to the Town. Old Theatre to be Changed to Up-to-Date Banc« Hall. FILER—The New Gem theatre will open this evening at 8 o'clock with a Mutual masterpiece of five reels and a Keystone comic production. The prices for the opening night have been placed at 26 cents and 16 cents. Show night hereafter will be on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. The new theatre is generally conceded to be ahead of the town at present, but buildings ahead of the town tend to induce the town to move to catch up. It is certainly a fine building and one that reflects credit on J. W. Tanner, its owner. The movie shows are put on by Chas. J. Kalina, who has charge of the Rex theatre at Buhl. The last show in the old theatre was given Saturday night and work has already begun on changing it Into a dance hall.

Coleman missed considerable business for the Home laundry and allowed the Impression to get abroad that he was out of busi ness.

Olson was present to ask that the part of the city laws forbidding streamers to be strung across the streets be amended to except road shows are announced for local the atres at times when there Is no op portunity to advertise In the newspa pers.

Harry Dinkelacker STEALING FROM AUTOS The advertisement in the classified columns of this issue with reference to the stealing of a robe from a car on the Kimberly road Saturday after noon and the recognition of the thief by a person who saw the act and later reported to the owner calls attention to the prevalence of that form of petty stealing In and around Twin Falls. Many of those who have suf fered have failed to report to the po lice and are bearing their losses in silence. In a few instances where the thief was recognized the articles are reported to have ben rturnd. Many are growing tired of lenient treatment to the pilferers and some drastic i c tlon Is promised soon unless the prac tice stops.

GLOVER EUEOGIZES ROTATION OE CROPS Associate Editor of Hoard's Dairyman, Says That Dairy Cow is Great Help in Rotating:. Numerous examples from experience of the utility of the dairy cow as a means of securing the crop rotation and fertilization necessary to pre vent the wearing out of the soil were cited by A. J. Glover, association edi tor of Hoard's Dairyman in his address at the high school auditorium Friday afternoon in an address similar in its outlines to the one delivered at the Commercial club the night before. Introduced in a happy speech by Gustav Kunze of Buhl, president of the Idaho State Dairymen's associa tion and owner of the factory that made the cheese that made the Gem state famous at the San Francisco ex position, Mr. Glover began by a brief but eloquent enconium on the Twin Falls tract, after which he turned to the deleterious effect of the one crop system. On the other hand he showed how by crop rotation, following the introduction of dairying the farms in his native state of Wisconsin and in the neighboring state of Minnesota had "come back and were now producing much larger yields of the crops once supposed to have played out, than they did in the early days when the states were first settled. He told of how the pine stump land of northern Wiscon sin, once supposed to be useless had been converted into farms of great productiveness by farmers who came from Bohemia and other European countries, borrowed money to buy cows and paid it back on installments with the products of purchased cows. His description of the live stock exhibits at the fairs in that part of the country when these people would bring in their stock decked in ribbons of brightest hues was both amusing and Inspiring. The Buhl meeting on Thursday af ternoon which was attended by J. H. Van Tassell, Willet Hance, W. N. Birch and J. H. Bradley of this city, is said to have been a very successful affair. Following a luncheon there was a meeting at the rooms of the Buhl Com mercial club which was addressed by Mr. Glover and others. The Buhl citi zens were full of enthusiasm on ac count of the return on that day of Gustav Kunze, in whose honor the pro vision In the by-laws of the State Dairymen's association forbidding a third presidential term, had been re pealed at the Boise meeting, in order to confer that distinction on him. Mr. Kunze was as happy and modest as ever. INSTALLATION WAS PLEASTANT OCCASION Odd Fellows and Rebokahs Hold Joint Meeting and Banquet at Hall on Last Friday.

Number of Receipts Greater. Although there has been a material increase in the number of tax receipts issued by the county treasurer this year over last, the amount collected is almost $50,000 below the tax col lected last year, obviously on account of the fact that there Is no penalty at tached to the last half of the taxes If not paid until June.
