Brazil, who is shown in the small picture, runs the largest snake farm in the world and is the world's greatest authority on snakebites and their cure. Brazil is infested with venomous snakes which yearly cause the loss of many lives. Doctor Brasil has made a long study of the poison of snakes and has been placed in charge by his government of the farm shown here, where all sorts of snakes are bred. Their venom Is extracted and is injected in small doses into the veins of mules. When the blood of the animal is charged with the poison the mule is killed and from (he blood a serum is made In this way Doctor Brasil has evolved a cure for almost every one of the many varieties of poisonous snakes known to South American countries. ( | | * •* ! j V-* « Public Forum The Boy Scouts. The regular meeting on Friday night will be in charge of Assistant Scout master MacVicar. About sixty tioys are now members, every one of whom is seeking to obey the scout laws and to do "a good turn daily." The scout oath reuircs the boy "to do his duty to God and his country, to obey the scout laws and to help other people at all times." The scout laws which he is to obey are: "Trustworthiness—-Any scout em ployed to distribute bills who will throw them into an alley and report his work done would be suspended. He must be truthful and trustful. "Loyalty—He is loyal to what he believes right. "Helpful—it is bis aim to help other people at all limes. "Friendly—Ho is a friend to all, es pecially to those who need friendship. "Kind—Ho is kind to animals and those who know the least of kindness (it is a humane society), "Cheerful—He finds the bright side of every cloud and brings sunshine with his whistles and cheerful greet ing. "Thrift—-He earns his own money and lakes no tips. The plan for rais ing beets is only one of many which will engage their attention in summer vacation, "Obedient—He is obedient to par en t 8i j aw an d a n proper authority; obedience Is the sum of Christian graces. "Braver—To stand for the right and not be tempted or laughed out of it. "Clvan—He utters no vulgar word, keeps his body, mind and soul clean, and goes with clean boys. "Reverent—He revers the aged, womankind, sacred institutions and the name and person of God." Seventeen of the boys have definitely confessed Christ in the meetings, due in no small measure to the touch of the life of the scoutmaster and tiie assistant scoutmaster. 1 can not speak too highly of the efficiency and work of Mr. MacVicar, assistant scoutmas ter, who has done most of the splen did work this year, tiie scoutmaster being otherwise engaged. Neither can I be too grateful for the kind words coming from parents, teachers and principals of schools as to the value for clean, noble boyhood being wrought out. Some may misunderstand, others may wilfully misrepresent the work, but its worth is known. Assertions un supported by evidence affects only tiie character of him that utters them. Mr. MacVicar needs assistance. Who will help to make men worth while by di recting their energies into helpful, clean, reverent lines of life? J. F. SHEPHERD, Ph. D„ D.D., Scoutmaster. Concerning ' Preparedness." It did me good to read the recent article in THE TIMES on the building outlook for 1916, The cheery way the Old Times looks at "Preparedness" is certainly refreshing. Perhaps some of us are taking this question *f "pre paredness" too seriously. I only wish our government could see further than armor plate and war munitions, and see tiie need of building up homes in stead of robbing them to satisfy the war lords. President Wilson has been touring the east singing his militant song—"We must be prepared." Mil lions of dollars will be spent for arma ment. People have become panic stricken over the European war and Insist on all kinds of preparedness. We need not fear an invasion as much as we need fear the war trusta and Navy League. The foe is within our own border, and if we let our mili tant brothers have their way In this business of preparedness, they will take our baby boy from the home and send him to a military kindergarten. I feel that the mothers should Imi giv en an opportunity to tell what they think of war. Let them give our brave (?) brothers some good reasons why we should have "Peace-at-any-price." It is the women and children that suf fer most from militarism. Some of us would rather be at the front and the first to fall in battle, than be left to protect our young from the ravage of war and from the beast of prey. It is not always a sign of bravery to go to the front Patriotism does not merely consist in dying for one's country, but rather in living and let live. Pray tell me where we. find in tbe sacred say ings of Him who died that we might live, for preparedness in a military way? We do f'nd however, to "Pre pare to meet thy God," and "Prepare the way of the Lord." (not v <r iotas.• A civilization that trusta in tbe sword can never survive. "He that taketh I the sword shall perish with the sword.'' The old world is on fire with mili tarism. Its spirit is manifesting Its seif on every hand. Even the Boy Scout movement has a military pro I gram which makes it a menace to our homes, and it should not be encour aged by any one, much less a mother, Militarism will soon take the place of manual training and garden plots will become a place for rifle practice. Our schools will be converted into mil itary clubs, our homes into hospitals and our churches into morgues. Yet oar church people have had it in their power to put a stop to tills kind of preparedness. Bibles are not welcome in our schools, but militarism is sought after. Is it not time we wake out of sleep, and look into these tilings while it is day? "For the night cometh when no man can work." When the sword comes upon the land it will be too late. If our schools are thinking of forming rifle clubs we should know it. We have not voted for these things and we are not willing to pay taxes to sup port military schools. Do you men, you fathers, not realize that you are sowing<to the wind and must reap the whirlwind. We are fast drifting into war by all this military preparedness. Had Germany been less prepared she would not have rushed into war. These people that clamor for pre paredness clamor for more, men to go down into death unprepared. Wien a man becomes a good soldier he sacri fices all that is best in his life, and he becomes a machine to destroy and be destroyed. "Billy" Sunday was asked if he be lieved In preparedness. "Sure," he an swered. Then he was asked if he , would pray that the war cease in En | j I I rope. 'No, for I do not know God's will over there." Strange, indeed, that vre should prepare for defense ^gainst a "hypothetical" enemy it God's will is for war. No, Billy should not blow his trumpet in that key of prepared ness unless ho wants to cater to the war lords. Perhaps Rev. Sunday hopes to become a chaplain in the army in order to preach peace on one hand and war on the other. Ministers of the gospel should be preaching the good news: "Peace on Earth." Why set a day for special prayer that war may cease while a ship load of ammunition is on its way to Europe? President Hibben of Princeton University, Taft, Roosevelt and others of like calibre have thought to sound the war cry on the foolish sentiment; "If we sacri fice honor in order to secure peace, the peace thus sought becomes for us the veriest torment ot a living hell." Not so my fine gentlemen, this is false honor you are talking about. It is of the devil and to protect this false honor is sure to lead us into the dev il's corral. War is hell the soldier tells us, and we have only to read the account of the people in Europe to believe it true. Why should the U. S. sacrifice men, women and children in order to keep this false honor alive? The present conflict in Europe should be a lesson to us. Millions have fallen over there and many more will fall. For what? To avenge the death of two people at first, and now to avenge the death of many. Yet vengeance be longoth to God. Still those foolish Austrians thought it a sign of "native honor" to avenge the death of their king and queen. Odd any nation or people think it worth while to avenge the death of the Son of man, and the Lord and King of Kings? Does any sane man or wo man think the U. S. is called upon to avenge the death of those foelish Americans that risk their lives in war zones? The people of the U. S. should come boldly to the front, and refuse to be dominated by the war lords. Standing armies and efficient navies have not been able to assure peace and protection to Europe, because she put her trust in armament and not in God. She listened to the loud bugle call and not to the "still small voice." Wholesale murder' has been commit ted in the name of patriotism. Mil lions have died for the colors. Is it any wonder that the mother looks with contempt upon militarism? If we ever hope to be considered a civilized na tion we must give up armament and "learn war no more." Otherwise we will drift back to the Red Man period, or to the cannibal state. We will be come as cruel as the Turk of Asia and become as uncivilized as educated Eu ropeans. Let me be called a pacificist or poltroon, I do not find that they will be barred from heaven. The mur derer "should worry." Let the heathen rage, and Imagine vain things (such as an Invasion) but let us "Love the Lord with fear." —AiVv. MRS. FRED SNOW. Twin Falls, Ida. MARRIAGE LICENSES. Harry E.

And there was never a story written by anyone that offered greater possibili ties to film-drama. A beautiful girl—running away from the unwelcome attentions of the owner of the yacht on which she was a guest—cast upon a tropical island in the Southern Pacific; the sole in habitant, a man who had lived alone there since early childhood: his only remembrance of language the "Now I lay me" taught him twenty years be fore by ids mother.

"THE BIRTH OF A NATION" COMING TO TWIN FALLS Arrangements have been concluded by the Layering theatre for the pre sentation of what lias Keen called the "world's film masterpiece," The Birtli of a Nation, which is now at the Sait Lake theatre in Salt 1-ake City. The production carries a company of thirty people, twenty of whom com prise a special orchestra, the remain ing ten assisting in the production of the film, handling the special lighting effects and other paraphenalia used in a careful and expensive undertaking by the well known producer, Griffith; there are twelve reels in all; the per formance lasting three hours. The pictures are shown in three sections, the intermissions being filled by spe cial selections by the orchestra, giving the audience an opportunity to rest their eyes and to hear the splendid orchestra. These films have a national reputation and their coming to Twin Falls is an event of no little import ance, as they are being shown at only the larger cities. The expense of the production and the company carried with the pictures prevents their being shdwn in most cities the size of Twin Falls. ' The birth of a Nation will be shown in Twin Falls three evenings, April 3rd, 4th and 6th. Prices and seat sale will be announced later. Speaking of the performances in Sait I.ake City, the Tribune says; "It is what they said is was—'The Birth of a Nation' is certainly the world's film masterpiece. The south at peace before the war; the assassin ation of Lincoln; the war with realism that makes one constantly think of what is happening today at Verdun; the horrible days of reconstruction in the south, when dishonest 'white trash' from the north played politics with the negroes for selfish purposes; the Ku Klux Klan, which solved the problem for the south; all these are wonder fully pictured. An orchestra of thirty three, with the general director, Mr. Koehler, himself, here from New York for this engagement, accompanies with a musical program that is nothing less than a symphony concert itself. The attraction starts promptly at 8:15 and at 2:15. One is cheating himself by arriving late. Certainly nothing shown locally on the screen has ever ap proached 'The Birth of a Nation." !

The Id love that Dick DOCTORS MAKE A FORMAL STATEMI (Continued from page 1.) the inicdental benefits for the doctors He pointed out that there was fow public hospital in which a physi cian could be sure of securing ac commodation for a patient, and re newed the proposition previously made that the physicians take care in turn of the poor, thus effecting a saving to the county. This would not abolish the office of county physician, as (here will be a class of work tor which there must be a county official, but it would be possible to make a great saving in expenses, as the sev eral physicians could take care of cer tain cases found by them now roQUtr ing the services of the county physi cian at their homes, as well as those in the hospital. Commissioner Albce suggested that the measure of success of the plan would largely depend on the confi dence of the physicians in one a» other, in the lack of jealousy and tn the tact and judgment of the super intendent and matron. Many people who suddenly get sick do not which physician they want and \lS; pend on the suggestion of others, in this sort of case the matron oî\ superintendent would have to use ex treme care so as not to discriminate v He said that he heartily favored the plan and believed that all the board did, the only question being the legality of the project, which would have to be worked out if possible In such manner that an injunction suit might not be successfully maintained He said that in his opinion a great public benefit would be derived by the public in providing a place where operations could be performed on cbll ^ren whose parents could not attorv t 0 pay the cost total incidental fa operations. The providing of a pJAce f or sue h operations and others fit a similar nature would be a great public benefit, Eleven physicians, representing a majority of the medical frate.rnity of Twin Falls county, presented a plea through their chairman. Dr. John F Coughlin, for the construction of a county hospital large enough to serve a s a general hospital, along the lines previously outlined by former delega tiens at meetings last month, and at the close of the presentation of the arguments, appointed a committee of seven, consisting of pike. Alexander and Morgan of Twin Falls; Dr. Wetherbee of Buhl, and Dr Dwight of Filer, to act as a standing committee to assist the cmmty board no Know 1 Drs. Coughlin, in forming plans fof .the inauguration of the project. This committee met the board yes terday afternoon to further discuss the proposition. At the request of Chairman Carlson, Mr. Hodgson described conditions in Greeley. He said that they had found it necessary within the past year to build a $21.000 addition to the county hospital. There were two buildings, one for the county poor and the. other for the patients who paid. Hoover, all patients in the poor department requiring operations were move« the pay hospital. This more than up the profits of the other, as half fees were allowed for all operations on county charges. The hospital ran behind $2500 last year on this ac count, but tiie pay department would have been self-sustaining except for the charges for the county patients He said that the plan proposed here would make a vast difference on the cost of the institution, in which the physicians would take turns giving free operations, clinics, etc. Commissioner Moore suggested that ^ a committee be appointed to co-operah-'' with the board, which was done, A stated above. Dr. Coughlin said V the physicians in all parts of county favored the plan. AUK Buhl was not represented at the n ing, assurances had been received t doctors there that they favored special mention being made of l Wetherbee and Dr. Murphy.
