eight feet in height. The statue of the
young soldier, "at rest," will be six
feet high and will be made of the best

of 15 feet. The monument will weigh
two and one-half tons. Situated at

Herrington Inquires About
Attorneys Appearing in
Sunday Theater Case.
Councilman Herrington and Davis
had a short but sharp tilt at a meet

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]

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

Every customer receiving these trees is surprised at the unusually large fine straight trees and

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

bushels per tree. Others are about 22 years old and vielding

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

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.

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.
