AIRPLANES MAY DO
TiEII
E
War Department to Send 11
Planes to Participate in Re
turned Soldiers Celebration
in April..
GERMAN FOKKERS COMING
To Furnish One Day's Exhibit in
Interest « of Liberty Loan
Campaign Also; Committee
to Take Matter Up.
Provided the celebrations committee
Of the Boise Commercial club can ar
range to stage Its demonstration In
honor of returned service men from
the army, navy and marine corps the
latter part of April, the war depart
ment has consented to send 11 air
planes to Boise to participate In the
festivities and give demonstrations of
the art of battle flying over the city
and heads of the thousands who will
gather to welcome the returning sol
diers.
A telegram to that effect was receiv
ed by Secretary Hyatt of the club in
response to one sent by him to Con
gressman Addison T. Smith at Wash
ington, asking the loan of a few air
planes to help welcome the boys of the
Second Idaho, now the 116th engi
neers.
It reads as follows:
"Making further acknowledg
ment of your wire requesting that
airplanes be sent to Boise for de
monstrations in connection with
celebration in honor of returning
soldiers, war department planning
to furnish for one day's exhibit 11
airplanes, consisting of two Fok
kers, four American scouts and five
Curtiss planes latter part of April
In interest of liberty loan cam
paign. Hope demonstrations In
honor of soldiers may be arranged
at that time in order to avoid ex
pense of sending planes at any
other date."
The Fokkerg mentioned In the tele
gram are captured German planes, and
would prove of much interest to every
body who has been following the war
aqd reading of the wonderful work
done in the air by all fliers. The Amer
ican scouts are De Haviland fours with
liberty engines, and the Curtiss ma
chines the regular army stock equip
ment, for bombing and observation
work.
The celebrations committee will take
the matter up and probably make planB
for the celebration to be held as sug
gested in order that the planes may be
seen in this city.
Prohibition and Suffrage Legis
lation in New Congress Will
Have Smooth Sailing.
Washington, March 11.—The prohi
bition and woman suffrag« legislation
will be in the hands of its friends In
the next house of representatives. This
was insured today by the flat an
nouncement from Repifblican Leader
Mann that no antl-suffragists would be
made chairman of the house woman
suffrage committee.
Representative Volstead of Minneso
ta. a known "dry," has already been
chosen chairman of the house judiciary
committee which .will handle the legis
lation to enforce constitutional prohi
bition.
The chairman of the suffrage com
mittee will not be chosen until late tef
day or tomorrow, but since Mann's
wishes as to committee choices have
prevailed so far there Is little doubt
that he will be able to select a suf
fragist as chairman.
WILLIAM J. BRYAN BETTER.
Washington, March XI.—The condi
tion of William Jennings Bryan was
much Improved today and his phy
sician expects him to be able to re
sume his work, in a few days. He has
erysipelas.

Edison Claims
Are Proven!
I N selecting a phonograph, don't depend upon
unsupported claims, seek actual evidence.
There are many devices for sound reproduction
offered and strong claims are made for all of them.
But there is but one instrument, the makers of
which have ever submitted proof of the asser
tions made about it That instrument is
"The Phonograph with a Soul "
Just what is claimed for this instrument? Merely this:
that a Re-Creation of an artist's voice or instrument
upon the New Edison is so flawlessly perfect that no hu
man ear can distinguish between the interpretation of the
living, breathing artist and that of the New Edison. Nor
is this a mere assertion. More than 2000 public tons
tests in which the artists sang or played in direct com
parison with the instrument have been held. More than
2,000,000 people have attended them. And out of this
vast assemblage not one person has been able to say
when it was the living artist he heard and when the
New Edison. No other instrument has ever been sub
jected to the searching tone test. No other instrument
could sustain such a test.
Moke it, a point to drop in tomorrow and hear a
demonstration of the New Edison.

Seo. Lane Announces More

Washington, March 11.—More than
1,000,000 acres more of land valuable
for grazing and raising of stock has
been added during February to land
now ready for use of returning soldiers
under the enlarged homestead and
stock raising homestead acts, Secretary
of the Interior Lane announced today.

stated. The new lands are divided by
states as follows: Colorado, 87,540
acres; Idaho, 46,215 acres; Montana,
390,791 acres; Oregon, 92,686 acres:
Wyoming, 625,662 acres. These addi

increased 180 per cent. Efforts will be
made to bring all down to a fair level.
FOOD UP 105 PER CENT
The steel outlook would be brighter
If congress had voted the 1750,000,000
fund to the railroads, Chairman Peek
said today. Thirty-five per cent of all
steel production is normally taken over
by the railroads. He believes, however,
money can be obtained to make a large
portion of these purchases, through the
plans of Director General Hines.
Complete cooperation between the
board and the railroad administration
has been promised and this may mean
that some of the high freight rates
will be lowered, particularly in build
ing and road materials, as requested
by the recent conference of governors
and mayors.
Tables of the board show that food
has gone up 105 per cent over the pre
war figure, with milk and eggs show
ing the highest Increase. Building ma
terials averaged a 100 per cent Increase.

ANARCHISTIC POSTERS
Major Humes today put into the rec
ord of the investigating committee a
large number of documents bearing on
Bolshevik activities In the United
States. One of them was an anarchist
poster which appeased all over New
England and which said:
The senile fossils ruling the United
States see red. Smelling their destruc
tion they have decided to check the
storm by passing the deportation law
affecting all foreign radicals. We, the
American anarchists, do not protest, for
it Is futile to waste any energy on
feeble minded creatures led by His

Deportation will not stop the storm

they are against all forms of govern

INFLUENZA GERMS
BY VALENTINE MOT* FIERCE, U. D.
Influenza is propuced by a
bacillus or germ coming: chiefly
from discharges from the nose,
throat and lungs of the person
who coughs, sneezes, or spits.
The person attacked feels chilly,
develops a high temperature —
usually accompanied by headache
and "ache all over" as it is
usually described. If you have
the above symptoms get into bed
as quickly as possible, after a hot
mustard foot-bath. Take a good
laxative, such as castor oil or one
made up of May-apple, leaves of
aloe, root of jalap, and sold in every drug store as Doctor Pierce's
Pleasant Pellets. Then surround yourself with hot water bottles. It
is a fact mentioned by physicians of the largest experience that the
effort on the part of nature to throw off the poisons results sometimes
in inflammation of the kidneys. It is therefore very important to
assist nature in eliminating the toxins (poisons) from the body thru the
bowels, skin and kidneys. Drink a great deal of water, and hot-water,
before meals. A new kidney remedy called "Anuric" (anti-uric-add)
can be obtained of. the druggist. This "Anuric" flushes the bladder
and kidneys and throws off the toxins (poisons), and should be taken
with hot water or hot lemonade. Clear the nose with some good
antiseptic spray or Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy. It is, of course,
unnecessary for me to emphasize this, keep strong and healthy,
fear neither germ nor German, and observe the three C *81 A
