•'Call for Mrs. White!" "Call for Mrs. White!" It seemed as If the call ran? through the lobby of the Owyhee about every four seconds Friday night; presumably, because I wanted to have a little visit with Mrs. Carrie Harper White, the lady representative from Twin Falls, and learn, If possibJie, what her real legislative ambition was. Finally, Mrs. White consulted her list, found that l was 'Next!" and, coming over to me with i smile that was simply irreslstable, sat down to hear my first question: "What is your legislative ambition, Mrs. WhiteV" Then she told me—and it is a laud able one; an ambition to do r. r others, to make the world a brighter, happier place to live in, and to help humanity which suffers from tuberculosis. The story is perhaps better told if I lead up by an introduction. Her husband, Dr. White, is one of the eight men in the country who have devoted their lives to the prevention find cure of tuberculosis. For years, lie practiced in White Haven, Fa., then pulled up stakes and • •ame to Colo mdo Springs, Colo. I>r. and Mr*. ''White then erected a fim* tuberculose finnitnrium at that point, and speedily, warn a reputation that was world \v ids. As the country saw their Institu tion e o\v, and learned of the wonder ful -u • they wore doing, it realized the nr-■easily of having similar sani tariums ali over. Accordingly, on day a committee from the Modern Wood men of the World, visited Dr. and Mrs. White, inspected their sanitarium and wt nt away. DESIGNS BIG SANITARIUM. The next day, they returned asked the Whites to build them tuberculosis sanitarium like their own; to design it as they saw fit, and to equip it. with the latest and host de vices obtainable as it was their de fire to give their lodg<- members a haven of cure for the dn ad disease, end in all their travels and inspections' they had never seen a sanitarium so complete and well systematized, or a method of cure so excelb nt as that of the Whites. And Mrs. White the same jolly, smiling, «vivacious little woman you nee on the floor of the house every day designed that edifice with her big own hands, using her own ideas for cutting of! steps and labor, and the Whites built It- at the same time, lak ing care of s.»0 patients in their own institution And when it was finished, it was a model of ingenuity, comfort end completeness. Then, through close association with tuberculosis, their two little ones were; found to be affected with the dread germ, *F-v sold their a, 11 and moved i T1ÏPJ BAYBIOIIT GARMENT STORK.

She knows that Idaho needs and must have tuberculosis sanitariums. She knows that this climate is the most wonderful in the world for the euro of the disease for she has proven it and seen it proved. She is also aware that 250 men from this state were sent back from the army with tuber culosis, and knows that when the boys return from France, that there will be more cases develop. And she is going to help those mortals so sorely af flicted if possible, for Monday she in troduces a bill in the legislature ask ing that, the state appropriate a suffi cient sum of money to build two tuberculosis sanitariums—one in the north and one in the south—where Idaho's sufferers can be cured and ade happy and well.

The next day Colonel Ross of Caldwell was sent back to find me and did. Finally !1 joined the trucks, leaving the motor cycles in Ross' care. No gasoline there, so 1 went to Clermont. DOES SOME TRAVELING. "I was 'in good' with the railroad office at Vadolaincourt, so drew sev eral days' rations for the detail at. that place. We loaded up with gaso line at Clermont and started for the regiment, reaching it at Kseh. The next day the convoy passed through Luxemburg, ami spent tho night and the next five days across and up the river from Trier or Trieves. I had to go to Trieves after gasoline for tho regiment to finish the convoy with. Another day's traveling put ua in liit burg. The second day ended with us billetted near Drum. So here we are. One of the lieutenants and myself, with a small convoy of 12 trucks, had to go to Treves again for gasoline, traveling a day and a night.
