FRIDAY, JUNE 16, 1905. Caldwell's flour mill, which was burned down recently, is to be rebuilt, and in addition they 7 are soon to have a new foundry and machine shop. It is announced that engineers are again at work on the long talked of Vale & Malheur Valley railroad. The promoters of this road have been working a num ber of years on the project and we hope to hear of their efforts being finally crowned with suc cess. And now a process has been discovered for making a fine quality of rubber from sage brush. We have always been of the opinion that after Idaho's land had been cleared and the sagebrush burned something would turn up to prove that the material was of great commercial value. _ Vice Presidents Fairbanks, re turning from the Lewis & Clark Exposition, passed through Caldwell one day last week and none of the people of that place, except the usual rounders, were at the depot to receive him. If the vice president of the United States ever goes through Silver City we will guarantee him a warmer reception than that. The P. & I. N. railroad, run ning north from Weiser, is to be extended to Pollock this year and on to Grange ville later. This will connect north and south Idaho by a short route and one that has been needed for years, and one which will make Weiser a junction point of much prom inence, and we will again be made familiar with that phrase, "Watch Weiser Grow." The congressional irrigation party will spend two days in Idaho instead of one, as at first intended. The change is made in order that the party may not only visit the Boise-Payette and Minidoka projects, but also the Twin Falls project and Sho shone falls. On the tour through Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California, the party has been royally entertained by various cities and irrigation interests. Special projects have been visit ed and in all such instances the canal companies or land owners have shown the congressmen about and entertained them. The attention of school trus tees throughout the county is called to the following: A law passed by the last legislature makes it the duty of the board of school trustees to furnish ai report in writing on the first Monday of June of each year, of the financial condition of their respective districts, showing the amount of money expended and in what manner and for what purposes expended, and the amount of money the treasurer of the district has on hand at the date of the report, the said report to show fully the financial condition of the district at the date thereof. Section two makes it the duty of the school trustees of each district to cause the said report to be published in a news paper or posted in three con spicuous places in the district, and to retain a copy of the said report in the office'of the clerk of the school board of said district, where the same may be at all times open to examination and I inspection by any person. The eastern magazines and illustrated papers are filled with the doings of the very rich, in so ciety. There are balls and coach ing parties and rushes to the operas and horse shows; plenty of them have yachts and racing j stables, and the deepest study of one day is what to do the next. And when their pictures are giv en, despite all the efforts ro make j them flattering pictures, many of them have a care-worn look j and not a few show traces of dis- ' sipation. There is the steady work of the poor and their lives are without much change; few 7 outings, not much experience of the great world's wonders. But the poor sleep innocently when night comes and rise up refreshed in the morning ready for another day's work, while those very rich do not retire until almost morn ing, and when they rise to an afternoon breakfast, the food is tasteless. There is a monotony in the lives of the poor, but when the whole round of pleasure and dissipation stales on the rich, then the man with his cabin and garden is happier than they. As a rule when men become million aires, unless they dig their money from the mines, they possess a great deal of what belongs to a ! great many other men, and jus-1 ticeexecutes its revenges. When all excitements and pleasures have been tried, then those peo ple who have the g regt incomes discover that there are a great many things that money cannot buy. They know, too, that at the pace they are plunging the race will be short, and then— what? Poverty and the cares that come of poverty are great tor tures; it is a bitter thought to a poor man that his family cannot have all the comforts of life, but the bitterness does not compare with the abnormally rich man's thoughts when he reflects that he has lost all taste for the sim ple breakfast of old and that very possibly he cannot, with all his wealth, bequeath to his chil dren an honored name. The lesson is, that when a man ob tains an independence, enough to meet all reasonable wants, he is just as rich as he ever can be, that if he gets more it is liable to bring him more sorrow than joy.
