This announcement was author ized by the committee which has suc ceeded in closing a contract with the Patterson aviators. There will be aero plane battles in the air, and exhibition flights of aeroplane mall delivery, an aeroplane race and standard tions. The aeroplane battle, featuring aero planes, is as nearly as possible an exact reprod. tien of actual encounters that have taken place in the Eur. pean war. In announcing it the aeroplane man agement says: "The crowds are told by megaphone that a hostile aeroplane has been sight- ed app oaching . nd that a machine will ascend from the grounds to defend against attack.

The proposed monument to deceased ur.ion soldiers of Idaho for the Silent Camp section of Morris Hill cemetery, for which funds are now being; raised, is in charge of the Women's Relief Corps, the auxiliary to the local post of the Grand Army of the Republic. That body of patriotic women plans to expend a sum not exceeding $1500 for this monument. Of that amount the corps has contributed $100 from its own fund. The base of the monument, is to be constructed of first class Penn sylvania granite and will be about eight feet in height. The statue of the young soldier, "at rest," will be six feet high and will be made of the best Vermont marble. The concrete base will raise the monument to a height of 15 feet. The monument will weigh two and one-half tons. Situated at the highest point in the cemetery, the soldiers' monument will be most con spicuous. At the foot of the monument are the graves of 42 deceased soldiers. Across the drive are the graves of 88 other soldiers, which include such honored names as Joseph C. Thrailkill, Alfred Eoff, Dr. A.

I HAVE SHARP TILT Herrington Inquires About Attorneys Appearing in Sunday Theater Case. Councilman Herrington and Davis had a short but sharp tilt at a meet ing of the city council Saturday aft ernoon when Mr. Herrington wanted to know why the city was in the case concerning the Sunday opening of the motion picture shows and declared that] it was only a matter between Harry S Kessler and the motion picture peo ple J. P. Pope, city attorney, in formed him that the case had been brought against the mayor and coun cilmen upon a writ of prohibition and he. as city attorney, defended the case. Mr. Herrington contended the case would not have been brought had the referendum petition not been filed and wanted to know who authorized the other attorneys to act. Councilman Davis explained that the men had never been authorized to act and had upon their own initiative en tered the case as friends of the court. Councilman Herrington contended that there should be some guarantee from them that they would not present a bill io the city, whereupon Council man Davis declared that the commis sioner of public finance was trying to make a mountain out of a mole hill and should know that the men had not been engaged to act as attorneys and therefore could not collect pay, hut that they hod entered the case as friends of the court, as men who were interested in the outcome of a public question. He added that Mr. Her rington did not seem .versed in the law. Mr. Herrington 'etorted that per haps he was not as he had not hung around the court house as much as Mr. Davis. The dispute was ended by the mayor calling for a motion to ad journ.

M10 YOUR LAST CHANCE To Get Very Large, Grafted, Hardy ENGLISH WALNUT TREES At the Price of Ordinary Shade Trees . THIS OPPORTUNITY IS AFFORDED YOU BECAUSE A PROMOTER ORDERED THESE TREES to plant a twenty-acre commercial nut orchard and when the trees arrived (for which he was to pay cas[h) endeavored to get the trees on tune and have me promote his enterprise at my expense as he has ingeniously had others do for him at their expense. I have a limited number of these trees left to offer you and I am keeping them especially dormant and they are i cellent condition for planting. Every customer receiving these trees is surprised at the unusually large fine straight trees and have been received froip practically all points in southern Idaho and this season will mark the wide high grade hardy grafted trees in our state and which should have been done You have been interested in my articles about the many English Walnut Trees thriving in Idaho and my endeavor to encourage this a« a valuable industry for Idaho. I have mentioned at other times the many places where the trees growing in southern Idaho and the commercial acreage now being planted as a result of these efforts. But a re view of some of the facts will be of interest. Some of the English walnuts growing here in Boise i about 50 years old and producing yields of about fifteen bushels per tree. Others are about 22 years old and vielding about ten bushels per tree last bushel). These grafted trees I am now offering will bear in four years, but the seedling trees that are usually sold do not hear till they are very much older than this, and some not until fifteen years of age. in ex large roots. Orders distribution of these years ago. My ten-acre tract of English walnuts bore some the sec ond year after planting. I mention this merely to show how early the high grade grafted trees begin to bear. For commercial planting the trees feet apart and this makes 27 trees to the acre, yields 1 have mentioned per tree and those nuts selling at wholesale at 15c per pound, you can e|asilv figure what this means in revenue per acre as compared with other farm and fruit crops. I am going to sell these trees at practically the cost of ordinary shade trees and this will bé the first time that Idaho planters are afforded an opportunity to get such high grade nut trees so cheap. The eastern nurseries charge from $2.00 to $3.00 each for grafted trees on a root that makes a slow growing tree and send you a walnut tree that is about two to three feet tall, while the trees I am now offering are eight feet tall and on a root that makes a rap idly growing tree and the price is less than half of what the eastern nurseries charge for grafted trees and less than many charge for small seedling trees. If you are interested in getting a go 3d shade, ornamental and utility tree and one that requires no care here as to spraying and which fruit is easily kept and contains three times more nourishment than a beefsteak considering the equal weight of each, then select an English walnut tree and grow some of the meat you eat. should be at least 40 With the are : I e (30 pounds per season. As a shade and ornamental tree there is no better. It is a rapid growing tree after the first year and one tree I know made a growth of 30 feet tall and 30 feet spread at the eighth season, and the same season bore two bushels of nuts of the very best quality. The special root on which these trees are grafted causes them to make a rapid growth, hut many grafted tree on a root that makes a slowly growing tree. The trees I am offering are very hardy and will stand a temperature of 30 degrees below zero. The special advan tage of this variety I am offering is that it is the latest of all the walnuts to bloom in the spring and much later than all of our deciduous fruit trees and hence escapes the late spring frosts and will bear annually. September 15th and drops out of the burr by October 1st. This variety should be tested out in the higher altitudes of Idaho. In Utah the English walnut has been s arc THE SCHEDULE OF PRICES IS AS FOLLOWS: $1.25 each $1.10 each $1.00 each At these prices I cannot spend tirric in correspondence unless for large orders, and 1 have stated all the necessary facts in this ad. For this reason I suggest that you till out the attached coupon and mail to me at once. One tree. Lots of 10 trees.. Lots of 25 and up The nut is mature bv growing for some years and at higher altitudes than much of the agricultural sections of Idaho. These walnuts I am offering are of the soft shell variety and that bears a very large nut of the very best quality. The leaves haaig well to the tree till the first frost and then all of them drop at practically the same time, hence the advantage of being able to clean up the leaves at one operation instead of the numerous operations to clean up the fallen leaves of most of the shade trees. The leaves fall ing all at one time is an advantage to the fruit in that all of the energy of the tree goes to the rapid maturing of the nuts. Many have the mysterious notion that the growing of the English walnut requires a citrus climate, and this is true of some varieties, but even in California the tender varieties are being discarded for the hardy and better type of tree, and which kind I am now offering.
