Sheriff Sues a County.
The case of P. A. Warner, sheriff,
appellant vs. Fremont county, has been
filed in the supreme court. It raises
the question of sheriff » fees. Accord
ing to the law a sheriff 1* entitled to 35
cents a mile, in going only, for serving
■ warrant. The law also says he shall
receive 35 cents a mile, for going only,
arrest to the magistrate or to jail.
sheriff Warner made an arrest and
brought the prisoner to the magistrate.
He put in his bill for 35 cents a mile,
way for making the arrest, and also
for 35 cents a mile, one way, for bring
ing the prisoner from the place of
arrest to the magistrate. The commis
sioners allowed the former but rejected
the latter, claiming to allow both would
be equivalent to paving the sheriff 35
cents a mile each way for making an

Nearly a Tragedy.
A short time ago Dr. L. T. Mitchell
took a prescription to the drug store
of Dr. A. L. James and requested the
latter to compound it, which was done
and the former departed.
A short time afterward Dr. Mitchell
exhibiting in various places about
town two bottles containing mixtures;
one of which he said wits the one put
up for him by Dr. James, while the
other was obt ain ed at the city drug
He stated that the two mlx
the result of exactly the
prescription, and he called the
attention of his hearers to the differ
in color, taste, etc., of tho contents
turcs were
of the two bottles, and adding that, the
one put up by Dr. James was erroneous
and not in accordance with tho written
prescription given him. He also
dulged in other remarks not at all com
plimentary to the druggist.
Dr. James said he had the two pre
scriptions written by Dr. Mitchell, tho
one given to him and the one given
tho city drug store and that they dif
fered materially. He said the job was
put up by Mitchell to injure him -that
Mitchell and ho were not on friendly
and tho doctor took every
portunity to injure him. He added
that he was tired of this kind of work
on the part of Mitchell and that he
would whip him if he was able to, the
first time he met him.
On Friday last the opportunity of Dr.
James presented itself. He observed
the man who he considered had lied
about him, on the sidewalk in front of
his store. He quickly went to him and
demanded why he had lied about him.
Mitchell denied that he had done so.
James said, "I promised to thrash you
and I am going to do it now," at the
same time striking him and knocking
him down, not, however, until the doc
tor had struck at him with a murder
ous-looking clasp knife, which Dr.
James said he must have had open in
his pocket with his hand upon it. The
blade, which was about four inches
long, fortunately struck a rib directly
over the heart and failed to penetrate
the chest, otherwise it would undoubt
edly have proven fatal.
Dr. Mitchell is confined to the house
in consequence of his injuries, while
Dr. James' wound is not serious.
It is said Dr. Mitchell will be arrest
ed soon as he is able to be around.—

The Valuable Citizen.
The citizen who is of the most value
to a community, town or city, is not al
ways the man who possesses the most
wealth, the highest intelligence or the
most aristocratic lineage. Of course
the two former will increase a man's
usefulness if he will but exert them in
the proper direction. But the valuable
citizen par excellence is the man who
believes thoroughly in his town, its
people and its business and professional
men. He does not make it his business
to decry the honesty of his local banker
or merchant or the ability of the resi
dent lawyer or physician. But instead
he is an enthusiastic advocate of all
things that pertain to the welfare of
his own locality. He has the interest
of Its schools, churches, societies and
people at heart and exploits their ex
cellence abroad.
We need this trait of character, more
than any other, developed among the
people of this community. What we
need is public spirit to make this coun
ty second to none in the new State for
wealth and enterprise. The water pow
er, the soil, timber, grasses, minerals
and everything necessary to a large
l>ay roll is here—everything but the
necessary public spirit.
Wherever men have shown a disposi
tion to adorn, bniid-up and enhance
the value of the town the community
t croaker has been heard disparaging the
efforts and impugning the motives of
builders and promoters of business
houses, public halls and other monu
ments of industry. It is enough to dis
courage men, and has been the cause
of some timidity on the part of public
spirited citizens in pushing work they
have felt disposed to do.-Logan Journal.

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
trices. 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 do my business with the least possible expense.
I have no rent to pay. I am content with a
smaller profit than some people.
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 the least money. My
trade is increasing every day.
