[National Crop Improvement Service.] I T WAS unfortunate In designing our national escutcheon that the pi ratical eagle was selected, while the real American bird, the hen, was over looked.* Perhaps It would be more socialistic than we could stand for to have her ladyship pnt under govern mental jurisdiction. We believe that next to milk, eggs are the most essen tial food. If milk can be regulated and the price fixed, why not eggs? Therefore, like the sacred cow of the Hindoos,' our pullets should be protected through the almighty force of public opinion. The average flock of hens Is a aide lssne on every farm. Mother makes a Uttle pin money and nothing is charged up against the hen and noth ing credited to her. So In almost every henhouse the main food Is what ever table scraps there may be In some and In others she Is left to' defense and appropriating 35000 there for.

You will have to remember to correct these faults many times before correct carriage will become a habit. But It will become a habit Just as a bad car riage may have become one. An excellent exercise for the carriage Is called ''windmill exercise." In this exercise your feet are never to #e moved from their position moro than can be helped. Stand with your toes and outstretched right hand pointing In front, your left hand outstretched behind you. Begin a circling movement with your right hand, going downward toward your toes, while your left hand goes back and up high aver your head. Continuing, your body Mill turn the other way so that your loft hand turns In tho direction your toes are pointing, while your right hand points as your left hand did when start NOTICE Idaho stands second in the United States for its clean Manhood, ac cording to tho Official Statement from the office of Tbe Adjutant Gen eral In Washington, and why is such the case?

Continue this circling motion very slowly until you.get used to it, then you can Increase the action. Practise this exercise about 10 revolutions at a time. In the next exercise, place your hands on your hips and bend backward as far os you can. Then bend forward aa far as you can. Keeping your hands on your hips, bend first to one side and then to the other. After you have practised these exer cises a few days, try them while stand ing on one foot, letting your free foot swing forward as your body swings backward, and backward as your body swings forward. In like manner let your free foot swing to the side as you bend sideways. Of course you should change the foot on which your weight rests from tlmo to time, in order to give both legs the desired training in balancing your body. This exercise may be performed with better grace if you stand on a thick book or other object, In order to raise your body, so that your free foot may be kept extended without striking the floor. Now stand upright, hands resting on the hips, your feet a couple of inches apart. Stretch your right foot forward as far as possible, your toes being slight ly raised from the ground as you bal ance yourself on the left foot. With the toes of your right foot touching lightly on the floor, describe a full semi-circle as far out as you can reach. Reverse and use the other foot to describe the toe circle. Practise this exercise until you can do It with such perfect balança that your free foot will grace the floor with a light, oven touch. The value of these exercises lies In tho necessary adjustment of the balance on one foot while the other is moved, so that your weight is constantly shifted, insuring flexibility and ease of carriage.

The following casualties are reported by Ahe commanding general of the American expeditionary forces; Killed-in action.................... 12 Died of disease ................... 53 Wounded severely........... 12 Died from wounds ................ 10 Total........... 87 Citizens of Boise In connection with my nomination for Mayor of Boise, it is only proper to state that while I have always been a Republican in politics, partisan politics and political platforms cannot be recognized in our city affairs. On tho other hand it is only fair to the people that eai candidate for their suffrage at the coming city election should state his position with reference to Boise's fu ture. Boise Must Wake Up and Employ Labor For the past several years our beautiful city has been almost devoid of industrial activity; and while it is most fortunately located in the midst of tremendous natural resources, its lethargic attitude toward new industries and railroads has lost entirely too much for its own good. It is surely time for Boise to awake, adopt a constructive policy, employ its labor and do something of itself, for itself and by itself. City Improvements, Irrigation Districts I am, therefore, in favor of Boise making every possible and necessary improvement that can be made at the right price and begin making it right now; and although there are no new railroads in sight, Boise can aid in the building of new truck roads that will enlarge our markets, perhaps, as well. I am also in favor of Boise helping in every moral and legal way to boost the Hillcrest and Mora irrigation districts, which almost adjoin the city. Recent investigations show that there is unused water enough in Boise river for a de velopment of these projects to approximately 1500 farm units, which means ultimately a family to each unit. These districts are as much of an exclusive resource to Boise as are the city foundries or the Barberton mills. Furthc" more, every effort should be made to assist the Black Canyon project to get its water from the Payette river, which would thus leave all the Boise river water for the use of the above projects. Municipal and Other Engineering Experience For the past 28 years I have had a part in the development of Boise and its surrounding country. During that time I was City Engineer of Boise for eight years. While in that office I made plans and specifications for and sup ervised the construction of every type of municipally owned improvement in tlie city. Among other things, I discovered the storage value of Arrowrock reservoir, called it to the attention of the Reclamation engineers and made the first outline plans of the now famous dam, which were followed very closely in construction by the U. S. Reclamation Service. I was also Chief Engineer of the New York Canal (now the U. S. R. S. main canal), when water was di verted from the river and carried upon the land in the year 1900. City Managers Generally Engineers More than three-fourths of the business of every modern city has been found to be engineering in character, and for that reason the great majority of so-called "City Managers" in the United States today were former city engin eers. i Law Enforcement ' / Without doubt everybody, as well as myself, is in favor of an impartial common-sense enforcement of the law, hut no one should allow that belief to minimize the importance of a constructive policy for Boise and its people. Let's wake up, keep awake and double our population In the next five years. Respectfully, ERN. G. EAGLESON, Candidate for Mayor. CAPITAL NEWS PUB.
