THIRTEEN OVER THE TOP Indications Now Point to Idaho Securing Second Place in the Twelfth Federal Reserve Dis trict. Forty-two of the 44 counties In Tdft fio have definitely assured state Vic tory loan headquarters that their quo tas will be raised before the close of the Victory bond drive. Thirteen coun ties have reported themselves official ly over the top. The honor column leads: Payette, Bingham, Bonner, Gem, Butte, Oneida, Teton, Valley, Bannock, Shoshone, Clark, rFemont end Kootenai. Ada county is past the million dollar mark and officially re ports $1,OSS,000 of her $2,260,000 banked find on the. records. County Chair man Newhou.se pledges the balance be fore tomorrow night. MAY GET SECOND PLACE The optimistic tone of reports re ceived last night Indicates that Idaho will in all likelihood grab second, hon ors in the Twelfth Reserve. If all counties report promptly tonight, Chairman Gwinn is confident this hon or will come to the state. District headquarters reported from Ban Francisco the following state to tals late last night: "Total for Twelfth District, $22,432,750. By states: Ari rona, $1,221,050; northern California, $50,863,050; southern California, $20, 318,400; Idaho, $4,702,400: Utah, $4, 224,250; Nevada, $875,750: Oregon, $10,886.200 (full quota); "Washington, $20,040,500; Alaska, $7.800; Hawaii, $53,450." CONGRESSMEN HERE Percentages of principal cities of the Twelfth Reserve: Portland. 70.07; Se attle, 43,25; Oakland, 40.10; Tacoma, 38.72; Salt Lake, 31.11; Los Angeles, 27.50; San Francisco, 27.56. All sections of Idaho are still work ing vigorously and will continue up to the close of tlie drive. Most counties will return some over subscription. Headquarters received word < » f splen did mass meetings at Idaho Falls, Ilex burg and St. Anthony yesterday which w r ere addressed by Captain Albert K. Connor and Congressman Addison T. Smith. Captain Connors left last right for the east to resume duties at Washington, where he is attached to the Advocate General's office. Con gressman Smith is at Rigby today, where the two-man whippet tank is being shown and an over-the-top cele bration Is being held. "We're going to have every county over in every loan drive," Chairman Gwinn said at state headquarters this morning, "I haven't the least doubt of the result. Idaho is the only state in the union that will finish all war ac tivities with that honor. It is some thing worth while. It proves there fire no 'weak spots' in the patriotism of her people. We also expect to regis ter as the second state in the Twelfth reserve to go across in the Victory loan campaign and there, is a fair chance also that one of the four cap tured German cannon will come to this •date as a permanent monument to the conscientious loyalty of our people. A big quick push during tlie next 24 hours and every county in the state can answer 'Here!' to duty performed. We're going to make it."

UNIVERSITY OF IDAHO BIOLOGY DEPARTMENT HAS SNOUT OF MAN KILLING AND EATING SAW FISH The snout of a saw fish that killed one Philipino and seriously injured several more is the latest acquisition of the University of Idaho biology de partment. The specimen was pre sented by J. C. Mueripan who saw the capture while in the Philippine is lands. "The natives had put out the nets to get smaller fish," said Mr. Muer man, "when this monster became en tangled. While pulling in the nets, several of the natives rushed out In deep water to make the nets fast. "The saw fish began slashing and cut one of the fishermen almost in two, causing instant death.

' 1 HOW TO GROW SWEET CORN. Sweet corn is not adapted to grow ing in the extremely small garden be cause of tho limited amount that can be produced on a small area. It is found, however, that most gardeners insist upon growing sweet corn even in a limited \fay. For best results it should he plant ed in a block in one corner of the garden rather than in single rows. For hoe cultivation the hills may be as close as three feet apart in each di rection and three stalks may be giown in each hill. Plant as soon as danger of frost is past. Cover the seed to a depth of about cne and one-half inches and give fre quent cultivation from the start or until the ears have begun to form. Golden Bantam is considered one of the best early varieties. Where there is sufficient land available, a plant ing of Country Gentleman and a later planting of Stowell's Evergreen or Mammoth Evergreen should be made. MAJOR GENERAL HAHN ASSIGNED TO CUSTER Washington, May 9—Major General j William G. llahn, today was ordered I to assume command at Camp Custer, j Mich., and Major General Grote Hutcheson was ordered to take charge at Camp Meade, Md. Brigadier General Clint (\ Hearn was ordered by the war department to go to San Francisco and assume command of tho South Pacific coast artillery district. Brigadier General William It. Smedberg, jr., was ordered to Fort Sam Houston for assignment to the. command or Douglas, Arizona. in order to escape the enraged animal. They succeeded, only after one had lost an arm, another a leg, and several others had been more or less severely wounded. "After an exciting tussel the animal was drawn in and killed. He was found to measure 20 feet from tip to tip. The snout of the fish has been pre sented to the biology department. The animal is said to be one of the most dangerous of man-eating fishes in ex istance. The specimen is in perfect condition and one of the best museum specimens in existence, according to Frof essor J. PL Wodsedalek of the zoology department. VICTORY VANGUARD Women in every state of the Union are proving the value of self denial in this work for the Victory loan. Idaho women, perhaps, are in many cases doing more. They are sacrific ing daily that the debt of honor of the nation may be paid. Sometimes the task seems impossible; but will ing hearts and ready hands find a way and with each woman doing all she can the final result will he sue cessfully attained. Referring to the "impossible," Idaho women, especially those brave, untiring county chair men seem to have .unconsciously the same line of thought as Mrs. C. K. Severance, chairman of tho ninth fed eral district for the national woman's liberty loan committee, who has been touring the Dakotas, Montana, the up 1 er peninsula of Michigan and north ern Wisconsin in organization work for tho Victory liberty loan, and who Las adopted for a slogan this phrase: "The difference between the ac complishment of the difficult and the impossible Is that the impossible takes longer."

Wicks, director o l the bureau of plant Industry of the state department of agriculture. Mr. Wicks has given the Capital News the following statement: May 9, 1919. During the recent cold wave of May 3, 4 and 5, damage was done to the fruit crop of southern Ida ho with varying degrees of sever ity. The Bureau of Plant Indus try, State Department of Agricul ture, has been misrepresented by stating that a 10 per cent crop of fruit Is all the southern and south west Idaho belt will produce this season as a result of the freeze. This statement was not authorized , by the Department as it is very [ unsatisfactory to estimate fruit i loss In percentage at this partie j ular time. The effect of the frost ! is,very freakish as some orchards, section, individual trees and even two prunes on the same spur have been effected differently. The frost damage about Ustick has been misrepresented, and In vestigation indicates that this sec tion came through probably in as good shape as any in the Boise Valley. The prune In all cases appears to be the hardest hit. but at this date no satisfactory determination of tho damage to any of the fruit should be estimated on the per centage basis. The exact condition of the fruit in the state is being studied by those interested in the fruit industry, and reports are showing that the frost damage Is very spotted. W. H.

The district at a previous election hel.lj last year voted $750,000 of bonds commence actual construction work. Roth series of bonds are for 20 years and six per cent. The firm that bought the first bonds is expected to tuy tho bonds just voted. The vote Wednesday was four to one in favor cf the bonds. ' Water for this project is expected to be available by next spring. There: I are now about 100 men at work. Ac tual poring of concrete for the big I rosorvoir dam lias commenced. It i> ! l rlirvcd the dam will be completed next winter. When completed the dam will be 190 I feet long, 100 feet high and will store water sufficient for 40,000 acres. The reservoir capacity is 170,000 acre feet and is sufficient to equalize wet and dry years. There is therefore r.o question about the water supply for the full irrigation season each 111 the future for every acre in the project. The land is all highly pro-I cTuctive. Hundreds of acres of sage brush land between Vale and Ontario i3 being cleared and the land is be 1ng prepared to receive water next spring.

WHEN YOU WAKE UP DRINK GLASS OF HOT WATER Wash the poisons and toxins from system before putting more food Into stomach. 8aya Inside-bathing makes any one look and feel clean, sweet and refreahad. Wash yourself on the Inside befora breakast like you do on the outside. | This is vastly more important be ( ause the skin pores do not absorb ! impurities into the blood, causing ill j ness, while the bowel pores do. For every ounce of food and drink to'taken into the stomach, nearly an ! ounce of waste material must be car j ried out of the body. If this waste ! material is not eliminated day by day I it quickly ferments and generates poi j sons, gases and toxins which are ab j sorbed or sucked Into the blood stream, j through the lymph ducts which should j suck only nourishment to sustain the body. ! A splendid health measure is to ' drink, before breakfast each day, a glus sof real hot water with a tea spoonful of limestone phosphate in it, j which is a harmless way to wash these poisons, gases and toxins from the I stomach, liver, kidneys and bowels; i thus cleansing, sweetening and fresh ening the entire alimentary canal bc fore putting more food into the stom , ach. A quarter pound of limestone phos yeariphate costs hut very little at tho drug store but is sufficient to mako nny one an enthusiast on inside-bathing. ; Men and women who are accustomed i to wake up with a dull, aching head or j have furred tongue, bad taste, nasty I breath, sallow complexion, others who have bilious attacks, acid stom ach or constipation, are assured of pronounced improvement in both health and appearance shortly.—adv.
