OFFICIAL COUNTY PAPER. BEST ADVERTISING MEDIUM Devoted to tlie IsÆining a,n.cL -A-griouLlt-uLraJ Interests of* Owyhee County SILVER CITY, OWYHEE COUNTY, IDAHO, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 1910. VOLUME XX. NUMBER 19 Local Happenings Tliree cats and two dogs were billed out on the stage the other morning. Hon. Dow Dunning, of Wickahoney, was in town a few days of the last week, returning home Monday of this week. The younger set of our town are going to give a dance at lower Masonic hall, to morrow evening. Everybody invited. Roy Maxon, son of our former night watchman, S. D. Maxon, of DeLamar, will attend the public school here this winter. Mr. John C. Connors, our hotel man, left here this morning on a trip to Boise and other points. He will be gone a week or ten days. • Mrs. Jennie Farrer Avery returned this week from Boise, where she attended the teachers' institute, which was in session there last week. James Inglis, for a number of years master mechanic for the Trade Dollar company, took his departure from here the first of the week for Boise, where he will spend the winter. Ethel Strode, who has spent the sum mer here with her mother and sister, took her departure from here yesterday morn ing for Gooding, Idaho, where she will attend the deaf and dumb school this ' winter. Ednetta St Clair left here yesterday for Caldwell, to attend school there this win ter. She was accompanied by Mr. John S. St Clair, who goes for a visit there with acquaintances and at the same time will visit in Boise and other points before re turning to his duties here. The little infant son of Mr. and Mrs. M. Brennan, of Dewey, died Tuesday morning and was buried up here yester day. The little child was born on Aug ust 10th, last, and was not at all well to the time of its death. The heartfelt sympathy of this entire community goes out to the grieving parents. Now that the county commissioners have been in session and canvassed the votes cast at the primary election and made known who the different up nominees for the different county offices are, would ! it not be well for you to consider the ad visability of placing an announcement of your candidacy in The Nugget. On last Friday Governor Brady filed a sworn statement of his personal expense account with the secretary of state and shows that the governor expended a total of $616.25, or that he is on the safe side by a margin of $133.75. The expense count, which is in detail, covers a period from February 28, 1910, to the present date. ac In more than forty Kansas counties women hold the office of superintendent of schools, and in twenty-four other counties there are women candidates for the office. Enough of these are likely to be elected in November to place the schools, in a majority of the counties, under the direction of women. If any one should then ask the famous question, "What is the matter with Kansas?" the women teachers of the nation would answer with one voice, "She is all right!"—Ex. School opened at Silver City Monday, Sept. 12th, with two instructors and thirty three pupils. Prof. A. D. Brad field has charge of the higher grades and Miss Eva L. White is teacher lor the lower grades. Miss White is a primary teacher of thorough training and highly successful experience and Silver City is fortunate in securing her services. The primary class of ten pupils just entering school this year is the largest class of be ginners our school has had for years. Their first lessons show them to be as eager and intelligent a lot of youngsters «s ew went to school and their teacher is very highly pleased with their first efforts. Mattie Heer and Clifford Weston left here to attend the University of Idaho at Moscom, and Verna Frye, Ray, Karl and Ned Williams for the Albion State Nor mal School, at Albion, the two former leaving here this week and the latter last week. All of these are bright and well brought up young people, so well ad vanced in school studies that their par ents have thought it desirable to send them to higher schools for further ad vancement, and we hope to hear of ex cellent reports from one and all of them. Let them remember that knowledge is power, and that. education is a friend which no enemy can alienate, no prison can bar from one. At home it is a friend; abroad, an introduction; in com pany, a comfort, and in solitude, a solace, and that the days industriously employed in acquiring it are days spent in gather ing treasures, of which one can never be robbed. Mr. Asher A. Getchell, our postmaster and druggist, informs us that he has made application to the postoflice depart ment to start a postal savings bank here, an idea which we heartily approve of and hope he will be successful in landing. While we ourselves may not be fortunate enough to possess a little surplus cash to deposit with him in Uncle Sam's bank, we have a class of people in our commun ity whom we know to send their money to foreign countries to be deposited, be cause they are afraid of our. banks. But with a bank in our midst, with Uncle Sam as president, ought to be sufficient guarantee of the safety of your deposit and worthy of patronage. Look into this matter thoroughly before you send your money abroad and satisfy yourself. All information regarding this new postal bank, and how to make your deposits etc., will be cheerfully given by our post master. Joe Hutchinson's Good Luck A Salt Lake special dated the 3rd : ! Au ' onft those Watered at the Cullen ho tel from Boise is J. H. Hutchinson, lieu tenant governor of Idaho under Governor Steunenberg and candidate for Congress on the democratic ticket in 1902. ceived today from Carson City, Nev., a telegram stating that the supreme court of Nevada had affirmed the decision of the lower court, which gives him the credit for originating the idea of what is now known as the Consolidated Mines He re com pany and 30,000 shares of stock worth to day $8.25 a share, and upon which there has accumulated $100,000 in dividends. Later we learn that this case has been, or will be, taken to the United States supreme court. This gentleman is well and favorably known in Silver City, he being a son-in-law of our townspeople, Mr. and Mrs. C. M. Hayes, and at one time manager of the famous Trade Dollar of this place. Card of Thinks To the many kind friends of Dewey and Silver City and vicinity, who so kindly assisted us with act of kindness and sympathy in onr sad hour of bereav ment—the death and burial of our dar ling baby boy—we wish to extend our sincere thanks. Mr. and Mrs. M. Brennan. Geo. R. Sweeney has just received and now has on display a full and complete line of samples of the latest fall and win ter clothing. Go and see him for a good tailor-made ready-to-wear suit. THE BANNER. The beginning of work again in the up per workings of the company's property has revealed some very rich ore in the 100 which is improving as work progresses. There is every reason to believe that very favorable results will lie accomplished when the new compressor arrives and is installed and men put at work to tap this ore shoot, in the mill level tunnel, which has been encountered in the upper work ings. When this ore shoot isencountered in the mill level tunnel, the workings will be deep enough to permit of its extrac tion without much loss of time and will be of easy access to the mill. If the man agement is a little slow about listing the | stock and putting it on the market it is merely because they want the public to be thoroughly convinced that the recent strike is all it has been represented to be. Notice of Teacher's ExaLmina.tlon. There will be an examination for teach ers Sept. 22nd 23rd, and 24th. tions will be issued for second and tiiird grade certificates. Ques Jennie Färber Avery. County Superintendent of Public Instruction. Silver City, Idaho, Sept. 14, 1910. Three Great Plants, One Bird. When Columbus discovered America, he not only opened a new world to the children of men; but it was found that this new world possessed three plants which have since become necessities to mankind. The potato, Indian corn and tobacco came to the world with that dis covery. What would the world do with out them now? The potato is most gen erally used, but we believe that com in its manifold uses is the most important plant in the world, while tobacco has be come a real necessity to the civilized and semi-civilized people of the whole earth. Take it from armies and navies of the most progressive nations and there would be a general mutiny; take it from the printing office and before a week there would not be a newspaper worth reading in the world. A failure of a corncrop in the United States for a single year would be an over whelming disaster, a failure of a corn crop in the United States and Mexido, the same year would cause thousands of people in the latter country to starve. We all know what formerly followed when the potato crop in Ireland was a failure. Besides, the three plants mentioned above, the New World gave to the child ren of men the noblest of birds, the The image of the eagle on turkey. Roman standards led the way for the conquering of the world ; our own Ameri can eagle has been an inspiration from the first; but could not an American; soldier fight better with a section of a turkey in his stomach and no standard, than with nothing in his stomach and an eagle on his flag? No corn, no potato, no tobacco, no turkey, no wonder the world had begun to degenerate.-Good win's Weekly. I THE SCHOOL AGE ■ With every year that passes more and more thought is being given to the sub-i ject of the phpsieal care of children. Attention is especially turnhig to that class of children whose parents are either too ignorant or too careless to pay proper regard to their bodily welfare, and es pecially is the state growing to a sense of its duty in regard to the children in its The schools are no longer looked upon schools. as dumps, where children are to be placed and kept without discrimination as to age, capacity or physical condition. Par ents as well as pedagogists are growing more and more awakened to the absolute loss of time involved in sending little child ren to the public schools who have no right to be there. A sick child has no place in the school at all, a defective child has no place among children who are normal, and all children below ten years of age are being treated with noth ing short of cruelty when the full comple ment of hours is exacted from them. There was never yet seen a normal child who was fitted to sit still indoor B from nine o'clock until four, with a break of only one hour at noon. Such an ar ran f?ement means in the winter no day light playtime at all. The child is kept at an unnatural tension when attention is demanded of him for hours atastretch, and study is made odious to him, so that lessons become associated in his mind with all that is wearisome and to be avoided. Many a poor little boy plays truant and takes his punishment again and again. He knows that retribution is in evitable, aud yet he faces it because, al though he could not express it, the alter native—that of spending the long day at the school desk—is intolerable. He is not a natural criminal, he is not a poten tial tramp, although he may become one under the system. He is simply a natur al, healthy little boy, able to attend to hto teacher up to a certain point, and then able no longer, do what he or his teacher will. If truancy and backwardness and in attention result from some physical de fect, such as imperfect eyes or deafness, the case is even more cruel, and natural mental development is a physical impossi bility until the defects are remedied. Much good work has already been done in the direction of physical examination of defective children, and much has also been done to remedy the partial or actual starvation which is the piteous state of so many children of the poorer classes; but much remains to be done, and especially in the matter of the number of hours in school demanded of children under ten years of age.—Youth's Companion. Government timber that was killed by the recent forest fires that swept over large areas in Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana, is to be sold as speedily as possible by the forest service, provided purchasers can be found.
