TWIN FALLS BANK & TRUST COMPANY aim SUPPLY SHORE MORE SHEEP ARE SOLD Yery Few Hogs Going Into Portland— Prices Steady All Along the Line. The supply of cattle has been any thing but liberal since Monday, says the Portland Live Stock Reporter of Thursday. Fat cattle in the short re ceipts have been few. The cow re ceipts which drew the bulk of the sup plies got in on a fairly steady market. The market, while showing no parti cular change, is in quite a bit better shape than for some ten days past. There has been a dearth of steers since Monday. The few sales report ed are tail-ends from Monday's mar ket, that were weighed late. No change is indicated in the steer divi sion from Monday's fairly good mar ket. No change in the situation developed yesterday in the wool district. Trad ing was of a moderate character and generally for small lots of wool, al though manufacturers, as has been . true all along ot late, were ready to dicker on good lots of wool, even of large proportions, if they were able to find them. Good wool still finds a ready market, especially on the higher and lower ends of the market. Three eighths grades, especially in cross breds, seem to have been comparative ly quiet but otherwise good wool and even average quality fleece has been readily absorbed at full recent prices. This week has shown the lightest run of hogs for months. Despite very good prices with a nominal top ot $9.10 for the best the supply has been anything but adequate. The supply was from valley points almost entire ly, and was of fairly good quality. Telegraphic reports have shown a rather spotted market in the east all week. Sheep buyers took on a little hope this week in the sheep house.

EXCITING RUNAWAY THURSDAY. While Mrs. A. S. Gibbs and Miss Jes ter were driving home from this city Thursday afternoon, their horse be came frightened about a mile west of town and ran away. He charged into a telegraph pole, throwing Mrs. Gibbs out and bruising her somewhat, and then, tearing the harness loose, ran off into an adjoining field. When his alarm subsided he returned to the wo men. Mrs. Gibbs' injuries were not serious and Miss Jester escaped unin jured. The buggy was badly broken. PIONEER Will GO TO TAMPA, flORIDA S. C. Sexton of Curry, Sells Out to Move South. IS PAST EIGHTY AND STILL ABLE TO DO WORK. Made Big Money Every Year Here But Heart Weakens and He Will Take Rest. "Yes, I have sold my land, 320 acres in all, today. I have been here 11 years and made a little better than a thousand dollars a year, which is do ing pretty well for an old lumber jack who was 70 years old when he begun, and I am going to Tampa, Floria, to spend the rest of my days sitting in the shade and fishing," said S. C. Sex ton, of Curry, as he boarded a train for that town Saturday. "I sold my farm on Big creek to Murray and Case and my farm near Curry to Coghill and Smith. My wife will leave in a few days for Florida, going by way of Chicago, while I will go in a car with a couple of horses and our household goods. I have always had excellent health here until the last year, and made more money than I ever did in my life before, but you see I am past 80 years of age, the baby ot the fam ily has grandchildren going to school, and while I can get around all right and do my work, my heart hasn't been as strong as it used to be for the past year, so I guess that it would be bet ter for me to seek a lower altitude. But I am always a booster for the Twin Falls tract and as I like it bet ter than any place I ever was before, I never would leave only for the fail ure of my heart to work right in this country since I was 80. "I came to this country from the state of Washington, to which state I came from Wisconsin. But I think that the climate of Florida will be bet ter for we now. I have been there to see and I believe that it will suit." -•* Filer Items ». — (From The Filer Jonrnal.) Walter Bros., sold their gray Per cheon stallion, Orlin, one of the strongest and brilliant bred stallions in this section of the country, to J. W. Hollihan, northest of Filer. Lyman Stewart left Thursday even ing for Portland, Ore., where he lias accepted a position in a creamery. Mrs. Stewart will remain here until they can dispose of their property on North street. Dale Chipman was taken to the hos pital in Twin Falls Sunday night suf fering with blood poison. He injured his ankle and wearing black stocking infected the wound, causing a serious case ot poison. Remember next Saturday afternoon at the Davis Bros.' sale, H. G. Mun yon, the auctioneer, will sell the buildings and fence around the 40 at the east end of Main street that has been purchased for a fair ground. H. H. Schildman and Anderson & Case have purchased about three acres adjoining the railroad yards and are building an up-to-date stock yard to take care of their stock business. They have sunk a well 122 feet deep and have lots of water. They are installing an electric pump and aim to have everything in first-class shape for their business. In talking with Judge Lennard Tuesday he informed us that he was going either to sell his farm or rent it another year. He is going to Cali fornia for the winter on account of his wife's health. Davis Bros, will have a public sale of horses at their barn Saturday of this week. The fair ground lumber, sheds and fencing will also be sold. Munyon & Son, auctioneers, and Guy Shearer, clerk. Now that the county fair project is over, the next thing is the rural high school. H. G. Munyon stated to the Journal Tuesday he was ready to start with the others whenever the word is given. Soon the schools will be out for the summer, and it is his idea to go out with our meetings and peti tions while yet the schools are in ses sion. The Journal hopes to be able to announce in its next issue that work has started. Joseph Fitzsimmons, assistant game warden, will be in Filer Saturday af ternoon and evening, bringing with him a number of slides showing the herd of Elk he brought down out of the Yellowstone and placed in the Rock Creek country. He will try and be here personally and give the folks a talk who attend the Gem theatre at the performance in the afternoon and evening. This will be a treat and costs you nothing.

Mr. Courtney had a large bunch of cattle belonging to ranchers in this vicinity in the hills for pasture and it was reported that there was no grass and the stock was dying off. These gentlemen report that Mr Courtney has just moved onto another range with the cattle and that they are beginning to look well now. It L true that the sheep had been over th! former range and picking was not very good for the stock but they are now on an excellent bunch of grass. TWIN FALIS WOMAN HONORED IN EAST Ladies Heme Journal Pays Tribute to Memory of Mrs. McCollum, the Pio neer Helper. The contrast between the old Twin Falls of the sage brush period and the modern city which has taken its place has attracted )the attention of the world and writers in the best maga zines everywhere are calling atten tion to the transformation as some thing marvelous, and the fame of the woman who cheered the pioneers goes with that of the town. In its current issue, under the heading "The Woman Who Saved a Town," the Ladies Home Journal says editorially: Out In Idaho there is now the rap idly growing city of Twin Falls. But eleven years ago it was a rolling sea of purple sage, dotted by the tents and shacks of some thirty pioneers. The streets were lanes cut through the giant sage. Not a tree was in sight. The sun beat down with tropical fierceness. Everywhere was dust near ly a foot deep. Winds scorched by the desert-heat beat day and night almost unceasingly. All the discomforts and hardships merged into a wave of homesickness that swelled as it rolled along. The men who, in their efforts to conquer the wilderness, had left loved ones in a far-off civilization all but succumbed to it. It grew until it threatened to be as demoralizing to the life of the embryo city as a band of murderous redskins. There came a time when the situation became acute, and depopulation stared the so-called town in its dusty little face. But there was one woman who "saw." "It's a home these men need," she told her husband. "It will save them and save the town; and, as ours is going to be the only real home within miles, we must throw it open to them." She did so. Before the plastering was dry she held a housewarming. And every week the men gathered there and enjoyed good music, entertain ment, good things to eat and the spirit of a real home. Recently this woman passed away, and the sorrow that her going brought to many was more gen uine to the "Homeless Twenty" that organized themselves under that name that first night than to any others. They have erected to their "foster mother" an enduring monument of granite and bronze, but it is in the larger and deeper sense that the town itself is her more enduring monument. To tew women perhaps is given the opportunity so conspicuously to serve the needs of a community with the richness of their home life as did Mrs. McCollum, of Twin Falls. But to all is possible this greater vision and ideal of home as a community factor; and where vision is, opportunity knocks in various guises. To few, perhaps, will be given the monument, but we all can have a working ideal of a citizen ship that carries with it its own re ward. TALKS ON THRIFT * DISCOUNTING A NOTE. It so happens in business that all payments cannot be made in cash, for most of the business is done on credit in one form or another. Small pur chases and many ot the daily expendi tures are cash transactions; but busi ness as a whole moves on credit, the form depending upon the customs characteristic of that peculiar busi ness. The most common form ot credit is the book account, where goods are sold and "charged" to the purchaser. When you go into the grocer's and tell him to "charge it," you are opening a credit with him in the form of a book account. This is common to all retailing transactions. But in the larger dealings, the credit WARM ONE UP AND SEE ! OLD JIM SPINKS SAYS YOU CANT ALWAYS PICK THE WINNER BY WATCHING A "TRY OUT.

IT MEANS MONEY TO YOU l Wilbur S. Hill i Real Estate, Rentals and Insurance 137 Shoshone St. North i « is in the form of a promissory note, i which is merely a written promise to pay a certain sum, in money, to a designated person, firm or corpora- ' Hundreds tion, at a stipulated time, of thousands of these notes are made every day. They are given, merchant to merchant, in payment of debts re sulting from the sale of goods, and while they settle the debt must them selves be paid in money, in order that the obligation may be finally ditA charged, for a promise never liqui dates a debt. If these promises could be treated as money and passed from hand to hand, they might answer very well, but they are of non-uniform denomi nation, their goodness is a matter not commonly known, and even though the maker might be "as good as the government," few know it and few would take the risk. And if the holder could wait until maturity, he would get cash from the promiser. But he does not want to wait that long—he wants to turn his evidence of debt into money at once; for with money—real money—he can get better terms, and for certain pur poses, such as paying laborers, he must use cash. There must, therefore, be some medium through which he can turn this promise into money be fore it is due—for a price—and that, medium is the bank. The process of doing this is called discounting, which in other words means buying the pa per. A simple illustration will ex plain. Suppose A sells B a bill of goods on three months' credit. A does not want to wait while B sells the goods and gets the money to pay him, and there fore offers to take B's note for the amount. But the note is not money and if A would use the money, he must find someone who will give him money for it. He might find someone who, for the hope of gain, would ad vance the money; but the logical place to get this done is the bank, for the bank always has money. It knows men and their ability to keep their promises, and can judge the quality of the risk. A therefore offers the note to his banker, who says in substance: "I think B is good for this amount. If you will indorse—promise to pay if he does not—I will buy that paper evidence of debt from you." Let us say it is for $100, due in three months. The banker knows that at the end of three mouths he will get the $100. and so gives A $98.50 for it, the $1.50 being interest on the money for that time at 6 per cent. Ordinarily the banker would not give A the cash, but credit his account, with the privilege of checking against it, which is vir tually the same thing. Now, what is the result? A sold his goods and got his money at once. B had three months to sell the goods to get the money to pay the note when the banker presented it at maturity. A could use the $98.50 to buy more goods to sell to C, and the bank has made a profit of $1.50 for taking the risk. That is what banks are for—to take risks, to know men. to help business and make profits for Itself. And this It does to a very marked degree. We could not do business very well with out tills help. It is one of the indis pensable adjuncts ol business. The promises of business men held in the national banks of the country alone amount to over three billion dollars. ! j COPY' OF MINI TES OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF TWIN FALLS CANAL COMPANY March 14th, 1916—Board met in regular session.
