Gains Made Inch By Inch on Desperate Bayonet Fighting. Liquid Gas Used. Paris—Recapture by the French af ter three months of the greater part of Fort Douaumont, wnica was Uuten by the Germans at the outset of their Verdun drive, is received with great elation by the press and public, the more so on account of the effect it is expected to have on neutral opin ion. Gen. Nivelle, the French com mander at Verdun, took advantage of the fact that the Germans recently have been concentrating their atten tion on Dead Man's Hill, on the other side of the river and assembled a large amount of artillery for the at tack on the Douaumont sector. The German resistance at some ; points was stubborn. On the Froide Terre road and at Douaumont, the French had to force back the Ger man infantry inch by inch at the point of the bayonet. As soon as they recovered from thoir surprise the Germans launched a number of tierce counter attacks, hut all failed and by 10 p. m. prep arations had been completed to deal with the serious efforts the Germans are expected to make to recapture the lost positions. The French success is considered by military critics here to have shak en the whole German line at Verdun, Douaumont fort was the most impor tant point captured by the Germans and French gain there is regarded as ' 3 11 II « ./-OS V < W , •=t Goodbye coffee grinder T HE right way to protect good coffee—in vacuum sealed tins—has made grinding at home or at the grocer's unsatisfac tory. ■Rirrtit nffpr ^rhillinfr'g iVlglll tULLi «-Lliiuiilg s Best is roasted, it is care \ fully ground into even . . . . . . , DltS, the Objectionable i rr . i . , i . 1 Chall talcen-OUt, ana the rnffee huvrirdlv narked CÜ11LC niuricuiy paCKLU in vacuum-sealed tins. .......

West of the Meuse Hill 295, the western summit of Dead Man Hill has become a no man's land, like Hart man's Weilerkopf. Once before the French abandoned it temporarily to avoid useless loss, reoccupying It when the opportunity came. Fighting continues with extreme violence on both banks of the Meuse along the Verdun front. Two Ger man counter attacks on French posi tions on Hill 304 failed completely. The French made further gains with in Fort Douauraont. The Germans now hold only a small angle on the northeastern corner of the fort. The battle around Hill 304 was es pecially severe. In attacking French positions on the west side of the hill the Germans used liquid gas, the of ficial statement says, and penetrated one of the French trenches, hut were dislodged at once. On the east side of the hill the Germans attacked af ter intense artillery preparation but were not permitted to reach the French lines. The principal fighting east of the Meuse was in the sector between Thiaumont and Douaumont. The Ger mans attacked in mass formation and are said to have suffered enormous losses. They succeeded in reoccupy ing one of the trenches north of Thiaumont farm which had been cap tured by the French. | j i DEPUTY REP0B1S THAT RABIES STILE EXISTS Coyotes, Sheep, Dogs and Horses »'ere Among Animals Killed That »'ere Affected Willi Disease. Tom Urie, who is employed by the county to assist in the extermination of coyotes and is working in the hills south of Rogerson, reports that there are still a number of rabid animals in I that section. A short time ago a farmer by the name of John Smith, whose ranch is south of Rogerson, was attacked by a rabid coyote. The mad animal attempted to fight the man but was killed with a twenty-two rifle. Two youngsters in the Big Creek dis trict were attacked by a coyote, but escaped to the school house. The coy ote was later heard from at the ranch of Hugh Reed, where it attacked a dog. A horse was killed on Mr. Helsey's place near the Salmon river after having shown symptoms of rabies. The horse was tied in the stable and at tracted attention by gnashing at the manger in a frantic manner. It broke loose and attacked two small lads in the barn yard, who escaped to the barn. The men on the place shot the animal and reported that it was the most ferocious they had ever seen. Some sheep belonging to a man by the name of Miller were attacked by a coyote and several of them badly bit ten before the coyote's attention was diverted by one of the dogs guarding the sheep. The dog has been bitten also and was tied up to await develop ments. Mr. Urie reports that he has- found two sheep in the hills which were af fected by the disease and he and Mr. Hungerford, who was assisting him, have cleaned out several dens of coy otes that were apparently affected.

CARRANZA SENDS 30,00010 BORDER Mexican Government Already Moving Troops AUTOS PBOVE EFFICIENCY »HEN USED TO CAPTCKE OFFICERS. Col. Tulis Cardenas and Two Lieuten ants Killed by American Officers »hen He Attempts Escape, Washington, May 23.—The Carran ordered 30,000 za government has troops into the region south of the border to exterminate bandits, accord ing to information received today at the state department. The new troop movements are already in progress through Chihuahua, the department's advices state. Officials here were inclined today to anticipate a further delay by Gen. Carranza in dispatching his new note regarding the border situation. Of ficial announcement that Col. Sibley's expedition had returned was expected to lead to alterations in the commun ication as demonstrating the purpose of the United States government to be only the policing of the border region. Mustering of the Arizona and New Mexico guardsmen is being delayed, Gen. Funston reports, until the skele ton companies can be recruited to the required standard. Secy. Baker has not decided what action shall be taken regarding the 116 Texas guardsmen who declined to enroll in the federal service. Judge Advocate General Crowder has sub mitted an opinion to Gen. Scott, chief of staff, outlining the war depart ment's authority to courtmartial the recalcitrants. Hia only recommenda tion, however, was that if the court martial were ordered a majority of the members of each court be milita officers, not regulars. Automobiles were put to a new mil itary use in the Villa campaign on May 14 when the bandit leader, Col. Julio Cardenas was killed with two of his lieutenants. Three touring cars from Gen. J. J. Pershing's camp started about raid day for Rancho San Miguel de Rubio, a short run across the mountains, the residence of the Cardenas family and the scene of some pot shooting occa sionally, at American troops. Carde nas' family, all women and children, had remained unmolested notwith standing positive information to the American staff that the bandit fre quently used his ranch for a ren dezvous. Until this Sunday's automobile raid, it has been customary to employ cav alry on night rides after bandits on ranches. The cavalry would sur round the ranch just before going on these searches. The automobiles, with an order to buy corn as the ostensible purpose, buy corn as the ostensible purpose, made a fast run over mountain foot hills to the ranch. Lieut. George S. Patton, Jr., of San Francisco, a mem ber of Gen. Pershing's staff com manded the machines. Within a mile of the ranch the car topped a hill from which for the first time they were visible to the occupants of the ranch and from which the automo biles made a dash toward their objec tive, which would have been impossi ble for cavalry. Running near 60 miles an hour they were within less than 200 yards of the buildings be fore their presence was discovered. A Mexican working in the yard gave the warning, but it was too late. By the time Cardenas and his two men could get on their horses and dash for the ranch gate, the Ameri cans had surrounded the place. Cardenas was the first man to emerge from shelter. He and Lieut. Patton engaged in a pistol duel in which a shot from Patton's weapon broke the bandit's arm and drove him back into the ranch house, later to be finished by the American soldiers when he tried to escape. BUY BOUNTY CLAIMS AT THEIR OWN RISK Hope of Compensation Rests In Ap. propriation by Next Session of Leg islature. BOISE, Ida.—Tliose who purchase claims against the predatory animal fund of Hits state, now exhausted, do so at their own risk. The only hope of compensation they have is that the next legislature will reimburse them through an appropriation. A warning to this effect has been authorized by the state livestock sanitary board. The warning is signed by State Veter inarian Bodle and is sufficient to give notice to those interested that they take claims at their own risk. The predatory animal fund became exhausted some time ago due to the heavy drain made upon it by slayers of predatory animals who have been very active. Since then the state vet erinary department has been receiving the claims and placing them on file. Many have come in and it is now very apparent that the only way the hunt ers can be reimbursed is by a legisla tive appropriation. The state livestock sanitary board was in session for two days tills week hut aside from auditing bills did lit tle else. The rabies and hog cholera situation were discussed informally hut no action was taken. The board realizes that hog cholera is under much better control than it was a year ago and that there Is less of the dis ease. With regard to the rabies mem bers of the board felt that everytliing possible was being done to extermin ate the coyote and stamp out the dis ease.

That there is a market for dande lion roots is the substance of a story going the rounds of the press, in which it is declared that the demand for these roots for medicinal purposes is so great that they bring from four to six sents a pound. Te dandelion is used in making up of liver medicines, and has become scarce and valuable since the breaking out of the Euro pean war. Since 100,000 pounds or more are imported annually into the United States it seems that many a young boy or girl ought to make fairly good wages by collecting and preparing dandelion roots for the drug trade. The root is used medicinally in dis eases of the liver and dyspepsia. Digging up the root for control and also for securing the maximum amount of taaterial for sale Is best ac complished by the use of a spud or stout bladed knife. The plant grows low that the frequent cutting of the lawn with the mower does not seem to have as good effect as with taller weeds. The plants must be des troyed-below the crown of the root in order to kill them and of course it is necessary to go much deeped in order to get most of the root, which is thick, tapering, and sometimes fnlly twenty inches in length. Another method of control is spray ing with iron sulphate. The spraying must be done on bright days and at frequent intervals to be effective. It will prevent them from maturing seed and according to experiments in Da kota and Rhode Island it has been known to remove the pest entirely from the lawns. Except that it is a nuisance in lawns the dandelion is not a bad weed, since Its leaves are eaten by most stock am: form the basis of many a mess of greens for the home table. The leaves are also frequently eaten in salads early in the spring, both in Europe and in this country. Whether a market could he found for these roots it gathered in Twin BO Local druggists say that representatives of outside firms could probably tell if consulted, and that if the roots here grow large enough and a market could be found for them, a neat income could be earned for a time in eradicat ing them. | Falls or not Is a uestion.

AUSTIN, Milli ner, Twin Falls, Idaho. \ SAGEBRUSH ROAD IS LATEST IDEA PATTERSON, Wash—George MacCulloch, of Coolidge, road supervi sor, has invented a machine to shred sagebrush for purposes of road build ing. The machine cuts the sagebrush and spreads it over the road surface. The result is a smooth road built at small cost. The machine consists of knives on a large wheel which revolves against a railroad iron just near enough that the knives do not touch. A hopper is placed on top and the sagebrush is forced by the knives against the rail road iron and cut into small shreds which is hauled to put on the road. Several highways on tire Columbia river have been surfaced with this material recently. Mr. MacCulloch has applied for a patent. N. NOTICE. We hereby notify the public that H. E.
