Only 93 cull apples out of 511
boxes of Jonathans picked from
the Mona Lisa orchard at New
Plymouth owned by P. Monroe
Smock, sets a new record for
high grade apples raised In tlio
New Plymouth country. The
apples were packed at the Union
packing house at New Plymouth
under direction of *he superin
tendent, J. VV. Phillips, who fig
ures that only one apple out of a
thousand showed any effects
whatever" of the codlln moth.
The apples comprised the first
car shipped out of the valley
and they ewre consigned to Co
lumbus, Neb.
Mr. Smock, who Is president
of the New Plymouth Fruit
Growers' union, states that the
anplo crop In the Payette and
New Plymouth country Is of
high quality this season and he
believes that section will fur
nish the finest apples sent to

The supreme court today handed
down an opinion in one of the most
peculiar cases that lias come before
that high tribunal-action to recover
judgment for a sum paid under duress—
represented ltt the case of M. D. Wil
bur versus Bay M. Blanchard, ap
pealed from the Judgment given Wilbur
ing the Fourth Judicial district court
for Elmore county, Edward A. Walters
presiding, which Judgment is affirmed
by tlio supreme court. The opinion Is
written by Justice James F. Allshle
and concurred In by Chief Justice
Stewart and Justice Sullivan.
This action was instituted by the
plaintiff for the purpose of obtaining a
Judgment for $2170, charging the de
fendant with the extortion of this sum
from him on two several dates, the
sum of $1700 on tlie 26th day of Nov
ember, 1908, and $670 on the 16th day
of January, 1909. It was alleged that
the foregoing sums were extorted from
tlio respondent by threatening to
prosecute him for the commission of
the crime of larceny. It wup admit
ted by the answer that the plaintiff
had paid the defendant the sum of
$2150, but defendant denied tliat th
payment had been procured unlaw
fully or unjustly. The case was
tried before tbo court with a jury
and a verdict was returned and Judg
i ment entered against the defendant
the sum of $2000, being $150 less
than the sum which It was admitted
had been paid. The defendant appealed
from the Judgment.

If you ooukl take out a policy of insurance which
guaranteed ÿou certain dividends from your store,
or business enterprise, securing against losses, you
would be glad to lose a little sleep in securing such a
form of insurance—wouldn't you?
And yet, in any business under the sun, what
amounts to such a policy of insurance is embraced in
an intelligent advertising campaign.
No advertising campaign
that was well devised and carried
out with unflinching persistence

The cost of this sort of insurance for a store or
