THE GOPERNUX'S HEALTH.
It Will Continue Good Until Jan
uary, 1897.
Lieutenant Governor Bierbower re
turned to Idaho last week from a trip
through the East, During his absence
the lieutenant governor was a litllo ap
to tho health and well
j )ro hen»ive as
being of Governor McConnell, and took
m-easlon to inquire several times by
I letter if the governor is well. These
| Inquiries were always duly appreciated
| and courteously replied to by His E^
cellency to the effect that the govern
or'* health wan in a normal condition.
When Mr. Bierbower returned to
Idaho he went directly to the capitol
to call upon the governor, but the chief
executive wa» aiment. Later in the day
however, he returned to hi» office, and
upon entering a»ked hi* private secre
tary if any one had called.
"Ye»,', »aid the secretary, "Lieuten
and Governor Bierbower was in a short
time ago."
"1 am sorry I was out," returned the
governor. He wanted to see me partic
ularly, did he not?"
"Yes," replied the secretary, "he in
quired about your health."
"The villian:" exclaimed the govern
'he has done nothing but inquire
about my health ever since he took the
oath of office as lieutenant governor.
Does he suppose I'm holding this office
for my health?"
"I don't know anything about it" 6aid
the secretary.
"You may write him a note," said
the governor, "and tell him my health
is good and will continue so until Jan
uary 1st, 1897."—Boise Sunday Topics,

A Letter From Baltimore,
Baltimore. Md., October 26 1895.—
Dear Mr. Editor:— One of the things
I have noticed in this city is what is
called Mount Vernon Place. This is a
small square in the centre of which is a
tall monument with a statue of George
Washington on top of it. Extending
for a block on each side of this square
are plats down the middle of the streets
laid out in grass with cement walks,
and statues of various subjects, such as
Peace. War and Industry, and also
statues of Chief Justice Taney, and Mr.
Peabody. The Washington monument
is hollow and has a stairway inside and
has a stairway inside, and for ten cents
a person can go up to a platform and
get a fine view of the bay and the sur
rounding country. The day I was up
there a fog hung over the bay so that I
could not far see in that direction, but
to the north could be seen the green
fields and hills of Maryland. This mon
ument was erected by the state of
Maryland.
The statue of George Peabody stands
in front of the library he gave to the
city and which bears his name. People
cannot take books out of this library,
but anyone can go there and read. It
is mostly for students. There is an
other, the Enoch Pratt free library, out
of which you can take books by getting
some good citizen to vouch for you.
This library has six branch libraries in
different parts of the city. There is
one on Broadway, near where I live.
Baltimore's largest park is the Druid
Hill Park on the north side of the city.
There is a lake in it from which the
city gets wa.er. It is a very beautiful
park, especially now while the leaves
on the trees are of all shades of yellow,
red or green, and some are yellow with
red edges, and they make a very beau
tiful picture. On ono of the drives you
can look through the trees and see the
lake beyond. This is another lovely
picture made by nature. It is called a
vista.
There are dromedaries in the park.
They look like camels but have only
one hump. There is ono sea lion there
all alone, just a-wagging his head as if
he was nearly dead of lonesomeness.
The city is very hilly and the boys
have coasting wagons made like small
btickhoard8. with a brake and shafts to
steer with. The boys pile on to these
wagons and rattle down the streets
Hckety scoot!
Down the middle of Broadway arc
plats of green grass with flowerbeds
and winding walks. The children are
not allowed to play on the grass but
they do lt - The >' 00,1 P la F on the Brass
in ( h . park.
' In my next letter I will tell you about
e the markets and my school.
Raymond Givens.

Why can I sell as cheap or cheaper than any
one else in Idaho? I sell large quantities of
goods and I buy large quantities and get lowest
prices. I manage to get my goods in at lowest
possible freight rates.
I stand behind the counter and in that way find
out what the people want I buy only such as
people want and have no dead stock to pay for.
I have no rent to pay. I am content with a
smaller profit than some people.
EFFECT!
People are talking about the big business I am
doing. People are talking about the prices I am
selling at. People are buying where they can
get the most goods for tho least money. My
trade is increasing every day.
