Situation Thoroughly Gone
Over at Public Meeting—
No Legal Provision for
Change, Says Dr. Sisson.
Meridian, April 6.—After a thorough
discussion of the situation at the school
meeting at this place last night a® to
whether the rural high school should
be returned to the status of a town
high school and explanations and sug
gestions by Commissioner Sisson and
Miss Ivy Wilson, county superintend
ent. It Is practically settled that there
will be no change in the character of
the school. In fact Dr. Sisson took the
position that there is no legal provi
sion for the change. The advocacy for
a change has been consequent to taxes
being high and the discussion of the
meeting developed the fact that the
excessive tax of the past two or three
years was because of a deficit having
been created the flret year of the rural
high school's existence amounting to
about $5000, caused by six of the dis
tricts which had joined In the forma
tion of the schoot withdrawing after
the law was enacted allowing districts
to withdraw from a rural high school
if they desired. It develops that the
deficit is now paid and that, whereas
it was necessary to levy a six-mill tax
last year, a levy of three mills will suf
fice this year. Forty per cent of the
levy this last year paid as tax this
year went for the paymer. of the defi
cit. Even after this great expense,
there wii! be left over fro n the money
raised last year approximately $1000.
The grade school will in all probability
be placed under the supervision of the
principal of the high school and in this
way one teacher can possibly be elim
inated. The rural high school receives
as state aid $200 for each teacher em
ployed and this means assistance to
the amount oi $1300 each year. Last
year the tax levied brought in about
$25,000, all of which went to the pay
ment of the deficit except the $18,000
expended for the maintenance of the
two schools and the $1000 left over as
a balance.
The teachers of the hig.i school will
entertain the Parents-Teachers' asso
ciation Friday and will have a* com
plete exhibit of the work of the dif
ferent departments for the parents that
they may have a knowledge of the

Caldwell, April 5.—The local base
ason will open Friday afternoon
with a game between the fast team
from the Oregon Agricultural college
and the College of Idaho. Two games
will be played, one o« Friday and the
other Saturday. Judging from the ad
vance sale of tickets there will be a
record breaking crowd at the opening
game. Efforts are to be made to close
the stores for the first game. Mayor
Boyes has consented to pitch the first
ball In the general direction of home
plate, where H. J. Zeh, president of the
Commercial club will be stationed in
a receptive attitude. The Oregon Ag
gies have one of the strongest teams
in the Pacific Coast conference and will
be In charge of Dr. Stewart, the fam
ous athletic director. Coach Webb of
the College of Idaho has not decided
upon his line-up as competition Is
keen for several important positions. It
is likely that Alexander will pitch the
opening game. Other available twirl
ers are Turner and Tracy.

Must be Destroyed Before Catarrh It
self Can Be Cured. Wonderful
Results From Breathing
Medicated Air.
Medicine that acts on the blood
alone will never cure catarrh.
neither will the sprays, douches, lo
tions, creams and other temporary re
liefs that
many catarrh victims
make a habit of using. To cure catarrh
so it won't come back you must first
drive from your body the millions of
germs that are flourishing In the in
ner recesses of your nose and throat
and are causing the disease.
There is a preparation used to do
this called Hyomei (pronounced Hlgh
o-me). Hyomei is a germ killing va
porized air formed from the purest oil
of Eucalyptus combined with other
healing and antiseptic ingredients. You
breathe Hyomei through the mouth
and nose by means of a little hard rub
ber inhaler which druggists furnish
avith it This medicated germicidal air
penetrates into every fold and crevice
of the mucous membrane of your nose
and throat, kills the catarrh germs that
lodge there, soothes, reduces and heals
the swollen inflamed membranes,
stops the discharge and opens up the
clogged nose and air passages In a
truly wonderful way. It gives blessed
relief in five minutes from catarrhal
distress of every kind and If you make
a practice of breathing Hyomei for a
few minutes each day for just a few
weeks not aply will all the sym*tlms
of catarrh vanish, but the disease it
self will be a thing of the past No
one need try or buy Hyomei on pure
faith. Joy Drug Stores and many oth
er leading druggists in Boise and vi
cinity sell it with the positive guar
antee that it must cure catarrh or that
the money paid for It will be refunded.
Hyomei ts very inexpensive and with
this protecting guarantee behind your !
purchase there F, absolutely no reason
from Catarrh should
why any suffer
not give it a fat jriai.
