QUITE A SURPRISE
— "We have the surprise party beautifully planned," said young Mrs. VVesterleigh to the guests, "and Frank doesn't expect a thing* I think he has even for gotten that to-day is his birth day. He will get home'froin the office at about seven o'clock. Then he always goes upstairs to take off his coat and put on his smoking-jacket for the evening. When he is upstairs I will call out suddenly, 'Oh, Frank, the gas is escaping!' down here, unsuspecting, to find the crowd of friends waiting for him." Then he will rush It went off exactly as planned. Westerleigh came home at the regular hour and went direct up stairs. The guests held their breaths while Mrs. Westerleigh called out, excitedly:— "Oh, Frank, come down quick! The gas is escaping in the par lour." Every light had been turned out, and the parlour was in total darkness. There was a rapid rush of feet down the stairway, then a voice said, "1 don't smell any gas. "Better light that jet," Mrs. Westerleigh suggested, tremu lously. There was a splutter, and sud denly the room was flooded with light. Everybody screamed, the hostess faintecj, for there in the centre of the room stood Wester leigh, attired only in his dress shirt, with a pair of trousers carried under his arm! Birthday parties still form a, forbidden subject of conversation at the Westerleighs.' Here's a match." << DONT KNOCK All the world knocks a knocker. This increases the din of the an vil chorus. Don't even knock a knocker; don't listen to him. Where there is no ear, there no sound is. The knocker will not knock long where no appreciation is shown. Knock not, less ye be knocked. We can find something to knock in everyone, and every one can find something to knock in us. Be charitable to others and you will show the truest character toward yourself. Knocking is the sign of envy.

Safety Deposit Boxes for Rent We Solicit Your Patronage The knocker envies his stronger brother, so he takes out his little hammer and futilely, but none the less irritatingly, taps him. Knocking is a bad habit. Break it. Don't lose your friends be couse you have the knocking habit. Don't lose your individu ality by joining the hopeless, dyspeptic ranks of self-confessed failures, the chronic knockers. PERMANENT EXHIBIT OF PRODUCTS To exploit the resources and aid in the development of the American Northwest, the North west Development League will place a permanent exhibit of the prodccts of the soil, lakes, rivers, forests and mines of the various states in a great display room and show them to thousands of people who pass through and visit the city of Saint Paul—the gateway to the northwest terri tory. This state has been invited to occupy several hundred square feet of this space without cost as the St. Paul Association of Com merce has entered iutoacontract with the league to furnish the display rooms in oue of the new buildings of that city rental free, if the league will furnish, light and maintain the display. The offer has been accepted. The plan is simply to show every person who transfers in St. Paul as well as those who visit and live there, a comprehensive exhibit of the products of the following states: Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Idaho, Washington and Oregon. The exhibit will be conducted without prejudice, the league publishing uniform infor mation about each state in at tractive booklets, distributing them and securing the names of all visitors which will be furnished the Commercial Clubs and state immigration officials of each state. A PURITAN SEATTLE The forthcoming city campaign in Seattle promises to develop some bitterness. From the pres ent outlook, an effort will be made to enforce the Blue Laws on Sunday. Not satisfied with having made a closed town, so far as saloons are concerned, the church forces are now after the theatres and all other forms of Sunday amusements. A big howl will go up from the base ball fans, for a large part of the population cannot go on any day but Sunday. Mayor Billing has already stated that he will not be a candidate to succeed himself. State Tax Commis sioner Parish will be a candidate for the office. His resignation from the state board is expected daily. Rumor has it that M. J. Carrigan of Seattle will replace him.

Idaho TAXIDERMIST AND TANNER 1106 Main Street S&.vintf The Sunshine Most true conservationists will . agree with the Secretary of the Interior in his condemnation of those loud talkers who Bpend their energies in discussing the wickedness of waste without at the same time being willing to assist in any prac ticable plan to stop the evils they bo greatly deplore. We suspect, however, that few, even of those good citizens who believe in the wisest use of natural resources and who are sincerely eager to safeguard the public good both now and hereafter, realize how easy' it is to ne glect opportunities for conservation which lie at our door. The coal and forests in Alaska are of vast importance, but the discharge of our duty with re gard to them will not occupy much of our time. A nearer need is to see that we make the best use of uatural resources in our own back yards. How about making "two blades of grass grow where one grew before',? Why isn't that iust as important as keeping the coal or sav ing the streams or doing any of the thousand and oue things that we indi vidualfy can only talk about? Our tru est conservationists are those gardeners and fanners who catch the sunshine and husband the rain and strive intelligently to keep pace in production with the in creaseof the non-agricultural population. The need of conservation of food-sup plying resources is obvious. There are more people in America every year and every year the soil if unreplenished is impoverished. The area of rich land de creases and the cost of living rises. Conservation of the potential power of sun and soil is the only reasonable so lution of the problem of nation-feeding and just here is our opportunity. What is for the nation's good is also for our individual profit. The wise use of the soil means money in our pockets. The very greatest product of land iB derived from "intensive gardening." Through generations of intelligent selec tion and breeding thoroughbred seeds have been developed whose yield far surpasses in quality and quantity (fiat of the ordinary strains.. You can be a true conservationist if you have a suc cessful garden. Be, sure however, to start right by planting thoroughbred seeds. These can be bought of seedruen havingsuffiicient capital and experience to know what they are about and a reputation to maintain. Notiee for Publication (Final Proof.) DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR U.
