THIRTEEN OVER THE TOP
Indications Now Point to Idaho
Securing Second Place in the
Twelfth Federal Reserve Dis
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,
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."

HOW TO GROW
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.

The damage to fruit in south Idaho
ns the result of recent frosts has been
misrepresented, according to W. H.
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
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
