Menutrial Day.
Blackfoot wan true to the observ
ant* of Decoration Day. May it ever
be true to the day as long aa grati
tude endures and flower»» bloom. The
touchiug service in commemoration of
dead aoidiera had its birth at Rich
mond Virginia. It was taken up by
the North, the East and the Weet and
to »lay, everywhere in our broad land
it ia a day of like observance to ail.
The dead who sleep in the National
cemeteries at Gettysburg, Arlington,
Winchester, Fredicksburg and Holly
wood Richmond, where a monument
built after the style of the pyramids
of Egypt, from whose heights centu
ries look down on the valley of the
Nile and dedicated to the "Unknown
Dead" are all remembered and their
graves are strewn with roses, lilies
and heliotropes.
The Grand Army post of Blackfoot
held appropriate services in the opera
bouse and after patriotic speeches
ami songs a procession led by a band
of veterans visited the cemetery and
strewed the graves with flowers
Every year the graves grow
numerous, every year the number of
old soldiers grows less and less, but
may the last one, the last survivor,
have the satisfaction of seeing the day
as patriotically observed as when the
ranks were fall and hosts fell into
line at beat of drum.
An Cgly Kick.
Tuesday morning when Ed Watson
was hitching up his wagon team, a
team that he had l»een driving for
yeaia and years, and which he con
sidered as gentle as old dog Tray, one
of the horses began kicking him most
viciously and before Mr. Watson could
get out of danger he was kicked on
the leg fracturing the bone, and also
on the head, causing an ugly wound
ovei the eye No reason can be
signed for the kicking, the horse has
always been considered one of the gen
tlest in town.
Big Failure at Pocatello.
The Pocatello Furniture and Hard
ware Co., L. A. West, manager, was
attached for about $14,000 Monday
afternoon. The liabilities of the firm
are placed at over $20.000; assets
about $25,000. The friends of the
company regret that after so many
years business at Pocatello, they
should have been force»! to the wall
under the squeeze of tight money mat
Beturnett Kith Yidorions Eagles.
Blackfoot'* base ball boys returned
from Idaho Falla Tuesday evening
with victorious eagles. They met the
Idaho Falls nine upon their own
grounds and conquered them. They
wont, they played, they won. The
Saturday before, the Pocatello nine
came np to Blackfoot and played our
boys. They returned home as
sengers ot the tidings : "We were uot
in It."
The two victories make the Black
foot boys the champions in the great
Snake river valley. Hurrah for our
victorious nine! Long may they wear
the honors won; long may they be
tho champions of the field!
Deputy Sheriff Dcvlnnoy captured
tbreo freight car robbers Saturday
and landed them safe in jail. They
had entered the car at Ogden and
during their ride Vo Blackflmt had
opened boxes and selected such goods
as tbelr fonoy led them to take. On
reaching Blackfoot they began ped
dling teas. Khoriil Woodiu placed
his do|Mity on their track and they
were soou captured and taken lu. Mon
day they had a preliminary hearing
before Judge Stevens and pleaded
guilty to the charges made. They will
remain in jail unl.il the fall term of
the district court and then go
the road to the pen.

Excitement in Boite.

Boise City, June 1 _There was
great excitement here this afternoon.
A fisticuff between General Pride and
Cobb of the Statesman, and later be
tween Pride and Balderston of same
paper. Pride was victor. Public
sentiment seems to be with Pride.
Difficulty grew out of an article in
Statesman reflecting on Pride as ora
tor Decoration Day.
The Election of School Trustees.
The election for school trustees for
the Blackfoot district next Monday
is a most important one. There are
several reasons which make it so.
The first duty ot the board to be elect
ed will be to superintend the building
of the new brick school house now
under contract This building if con
structed in accordance with the plans
and specifications, will be the pride
of every citizen of the district Great
care should then be takeu in the build
ing and if possible, it should be made
ready for the opening of the fall term
of school September 1st
Upon the new board will devolve
the election of teachers for the next
scholastic year. An extra good corps
should be employed for this term.
Blackfoot bas some apt sprightly
children, quick to learn and eager to
learn. With the advantages and com
fort« of the new building and with a
good corps of teachers the advanced
pupils particularly can accomplish
much in the next year or two of the
school life allotted to them.
Blackfoot must be made an educa
tional center. It mast be made the
beat educational point in the great
Snake river valley and along the line
of railroad from Ogden to Montana.
Let our poople then who arc voters,
freeholders and beads of families'
have an eye to this and turn out next
Monday and vote for a number one
board of trustees.

Want of money with which to
force the Geary Chinese exclusion law
has left that act in a state of suspend
ed animation. At the same time an
effort will be made by the Treasury
Dcpartiucut to eu force some of the
provisions of tho law. This is indi
cated in a letter addressed to tho Col
lector of Customs at New York by
Secretary Carlisle this week. In this
letter the Secretary recalling the pro
visions of his late circular instructing
officers ot tho department to refrain
from making arrests under the pro
visions of the exclusion law until
otherwise directed, declares that that
order remains in force as far as it ap
plies to Chinese persons who have
failed to obtain certificates of resi
diurne under the provisions of the
sixth suction of the act., but who other
wise would have a right to remain in
tho United States.—Brudatrcct's.

Advice to Young Men .
President Porter, of Vale, gave the
following advice to the students of
that institution:
"Young men, you are the architects
of your own fortunes. Rely upon
your own strength of body and soul.
Take for your stars self-defence faith,
honesty and industry. Inscribe on
your banner, 'Luck is a fool, Pluck is
a hero.' Don't take too much advice
—keep at your helm and steer your
own ship, and remember that the
great art of commanding is to take a
fair share of the work. Don't prac
tice too much humanity. Think well
of yourself. Strike out Assume your
own position. Put potatoes in a
cart, over a rough read, and the small
ones go to the bottom. Rise above
the envious and jealous. Fire above
the mark you intend to hit Energy,
invincible determination with a mo
tive, are the levers that move the
world. Don't drink. Don't chew.
Don't smoke. Don't swear. Don't
deceive. Don't read novels. Don't,
marry until you can support a wife.
Be earnest Be self-reliant Be gen
erous. Be civil. Read the papers.
Advertise your business. Make mon
ey and do good with it Love your
God and fellow men. Love your
country and obey its laws."
Silk mitts and gloves a specialty.
Mrs. Holbrook.
Hero is one of the biggest old fools
we have yet heard of. We are told,
however, that hit children have inter
fered to prevent him from carrying
out his idiotic whim. Jonathan Stan
hope, a wealthy and eccentric, widow
er 84 years old in Wayne county, ap
plied to the postmaster at Richmond
last week, for $3,800 worth of one,
two and five cent Columbian postage
stamps, to paper his parlor with. He
was determined to have them and de
posited the money for their purchase.

C. Bunting A Co.
Mrs. F -was a happy mother,
who had been blest with a half-dozen
boys, more or less, of whom she was
justly, very proud; but there was no
daughter in the house. On one oc-
casion, when the minister called to
sec lier, he praised her thriving fami-
ly, but added : "It's a pity, Mrs.
-, that oue of them wasn't a
girl." Little Lute, one of the younger
ones, sitting by in his little rocking
chair, looked up with a frown, and
surprised the clergyman bj saying :
"I don't know who'd 'a' been her.
Frank wouldn't 'a' been her, and
George wouldn't 'a' been her, and I
wouldn't 'a' been her, and I don't
know who would a" been her."
Just received a new line of black
lawus aud black sateens.
Mrs. Holbrook.
Mamma, may we play at keeping a
