GUARD REGIMENT IS IN EINE TRIM Federal Inspection Shows That Second Infantry Is a More Efficient Organiza tion Than Ever Before. While the attendance for the 191< Inspection of the Idaho National Guard, fell off slightly from the attendance for the 1916 fed eral Inspection, the efficiency ot the regiment this year is said to be higher than It was last and the regiment is in better condition.

The last unit of the regiment will pass through its official inspection to night when the medical corps appears in front of the state capitol building before Captain Charles T.

The above table shows that Company I of Payette carried off the honors for total attendance at the inspection with three officers and 77 enlisted men. Company M of Emmett, the last com pany to be mustered In, had the small est attendance at the inspection or 38. Considering, however, that Company M has had but a short time to prepare for the inspection and was mustered in but a short time ago. officers of the guard consider the showing an excel lent one Indeed. From a military standpoint the regi ment Is in very good condition, it is said, and should a call be issued with the idea of using the regiment in ser vice it could be equipped to full war strength in a comparatively short time.

White, state sanitary Inspector and inspector of public buildings, tested the fire alarm system at the Boise high school today and states that he has never seen better discipline along the fire drill line than Is main tained by Superintendent Rose. "I went into the building nounced," said Commissioner White, "and just 40 seconds from the first tap of the fire gong 869 pupils passed out of the building in perfect order. The people of Boise should feel grateful to Superintendent Rose and his teachers for such careful and efficient service." unun Why Is th* Sun HotT If we could build up*a solid column of ice from the earth to the sun, two miles and a half In diameter, spanning the Intervening distance of 93,000,000 miles, and if the sun should träte his entire power upon it, It would dissolve in a single second, according to a calculation made by Professor Young. The great German physicist Herrn hoitz was the first to explain satiafac torily what keeps the sun hot. The sun is not burning; it is heated to the glowing point, like a piece of white hot Iron. Helmholtz found that if we sup pose the sun to be contracting by only )250 feet a year we would receive our present amount of heat. In other words heat » b «- in * literally squeezed out of the sun. Professor Newcomb estimated concert that when the squeezing process has continued for about seven million years the sun will be one-half Its present size.—Popular Science Monthly. « :EK « V ÏRE'-J REALOfäLP IM KSERDlMG-YlT D c Jbk All over our fair country this national event is being fostered by the leading apparel merchant.

Florence—the Capital of Tuscany, and of all Italy till 1871. r Ui »1 > FIRENZE GAGE &MP Now what has this to do with Firenze Gage ? To jump from art to business, "Firenze" is Italian for Florence, and Florence is the world's market place for Tuscan braid—where the pea sant women bring bundles of straw for plaiting—all of a golden hue— due to Tuscany's peculiar soil—and where the warehouses later sell the cord of Tuscan thread, wound on spools—and woven with the character istic flat straw pattern, as demand dictates. This week we see a typical Tuscan braid (held by the maiden in the drawing, with Giotto's bell-tower In the background) made into an entire brim for FIRENZE GAGE —affording a softening outline, becom ing to all wearers, and uery stylish as well. So much for Florence and Tuscan braid. Next CHEFOO —we see an old seaport town of China, a resort for tourists, and a principal point of export, its wharves crowded with huge bales of piping braid, hand woven, of long strands of clean white wheat straw. So from Chefoo to Chicago, comes our China piping— to go straight into the crown of FIRENZE GAGE. \ We have answered the riddle: FIRENZE GAGE has a Tuscan braid brim, and China piping crown—the new combination In millinery; c,'<»r, Black, the last note from Paris—with smart upstanding bow of Black Moire ribbon. Another answer to the riddle counts with you more: the satisfaction of a fortunate customer who buys FIRENZE GAGE—and comes back, with her friends, to a store that sells the right thing.
