CHALLIS, CUSTER COUNTY, IDAHO, TUESDAY, AUGUST 28, 1894. NO. 5. "K««p Off the Canh." Lei un gather up the aunbeams Lying all around our path ; Get a trust on wheat and roses ; Give the poor the thorns and chaff; Let us find onr chlefest pleasure Boarding bounties of today. So the poor shall have scant measure And two prices have to pay. Yea, we'll reservoir the rivers. And we'll levy on the lakes. And we'll fix a trifling toll tax On each poor man who partakes; We'll brand his number on him That he'll carry through his life; We'll apprentice all his children. And mortgage bind his wife. We will capture e'en the wind god And confine him in a cave; And then, through our patent process We the atmosphere will save ; Thus we'll squeeze our little brother When he tries his lungs to fill, Put a meter on his windpipe And present our little bill. We will syndicate the starlight, And monopolize the moon ; Claim a royalty on rest-day And proprietary noon; For right-of-way through ocean's spray, We'll charge lust what It's worth ; We'll drive our stakes around the lakes. In fact, we'll own the earth. Composition On Politcoc»». The following composition on politeness was written by little Myrtle Wilkinson, of Challis, a few days ago, and, considering her youth, we publish it in full, as written : POLITENESS. POLITENESS. A young girl got on the car 15 minutes before it was to start during that time I had a good look at her she had a very sweet face and wore the badge of the kings daughter a little while be fore a woman got on with 2 children one just a baby the baby was very cross and wiggled around a good deal and it was all the tired mother could do to hold him finally the young girl notic ed it and said wont you let me take the baby and held out her arms to the baby with an entic ing smile at the same time taking a cooky from her lunch basket the baby in turn held out its arms with a coo the young girl held it awhile and then an old lady came in leaning on her son's arm the car was crowded and she leaned forward touched the old lady on the arm and said you may have my seat the old lad} sank down in the seat with a murmred thank you awhile after news came in that the bridge ahead had gone down some of the passengers had brought lunches the young girl was one of them she shared her lunch with the old lady they had not gone very far before the conduc tor called Denver and the young girl got off and I wondered if she was allways as polite and gentle as she was on that crowded car. it fi Off For Yellow Jacket. [Hailey Tim«#.] Joe Short started six yoke of his work oxen to the Yellow Jacket, last week, and will fol low tomorrow with three teams of work horses, three pack mules, and three saddle ponies. The Yellow Jacket is about 150 miles from Hailey in a north erly direction. Challis is about half way there. Mr. Short has taken a contract to supply the Yellow Jacket company with 100.000 feet of logs, at the rate of 2.000 feet per day. He expects to get through in 50 to 60 days, but may remain in the north, as he is offered steady employment. There are 100 men at work at the Yellow Jacket, and more may be put on. The place is quite inaccessible. Everything has to be packed in as there is no wagon road. Hay sells at $52 by the ton, and $80 a ton by the bale. Oats are 3j cents a pound. The above outfit passed through Challis last Thursday. John Hunter, secretary of the state wagon road commission, has sent about 60 men to Stanley Basip to work on the state wagon road. We suppose they were Fins, and Swedes to compare with most of their employees. Kind Word» From Our Exchange». The Silver Messenger, of Challis, has risen from the ashes and looks as bright as the new silver dollar which it wants at 16 to 1 .—Blackfoot News. The Challis Messenger has risen from the ashes and donned a bright new dress .—Salt Lake Tribune. The Silver Messenger at Challis, destroyed by fire April 25, is again on its feet, bright, and has a substantial ap pearance .— Cœur d'Alene Sun. The Challis Messenger has risen from the ashes and again greets its readers with the Popu list motto ; "Free and unlimited coinage of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1. SENGER !—Nampa Leader. The Challis Messenger is again on deck. It is a very neat looking paper, having an entire new dress of type, is the editor and M. M. Sweet manager. The paper is for free coinage and a strong supporter of the People's Party .—Wood River News-Miner. It is Long live the Mes R. A. Pierce The Challis Messenger has risen from its ashes and donned a bright new dress. The first issue reached our office Thurs day. The paper is replete with local and general news besides able editorials in advocacy of the People's party. The Keystone wishes the Messenger bon voy age on the journalistic sea.— Ketchum Keystone. The Silver Messenger, of Challis, has arisen Phoenix-like from the ashes and again appears on our exchange table. The Messenger plant was consumed by fire on April 25th and after an enforced silence of over three months comes to us again as bright, new, neat and as firm a friend of the Populists as ever. —Idaho Recorder. The Silver Messenger, of Challis, of necessity appears in a new dress, having had all its old clothes burned in the fire of April 25th last. The Messeng er has stood the test, overcom ing for fourteen years the ob stacles that beset the course of Western country journalism, and is entitled to all its former sup port and any that it may acquire. Its appearance is improved. May it live to the end of time .—Lemhi Republic. We are happy to welcome the Challis Silver Messenger again bearing news of returning prosperity to the mining indus try of Custer county. The Mes senger office was destroyed by fire in April, the report reaching the outside world that nothing was saved but a pied form, a fi shing pole and a straw hat. It is now up again wearing a new dress and talking of revival in business. W. A. Clark the great Montana mining man. has been investing in copper properties in that county, and other well known properties are coming to the front.— De La mar Nugget. The Challis Silver Messen ger, the office and material of which was destroyed by fire last April, has again made its appear ance. In a complete new dress it enters upon its fifteenth year, and a glance at its columns show the vigilance, vitality and vim to wrestle with the hard times which are upon us. It indignant ly denies that the only thing saved from the fire was a fishing rod, and asserts that the entire winter wardrobe—a straw hat and linen duster—was not de stroyed.*— Rellevue HeralcL LOCAL CLEANINGS All who want office in Custer county this fall please raise your right hand ?

Governor McConnell's mid night can-can performance at Moscow recently, before a select coterie of political friends, who were in a sort of razzle-dazzle condition themselves, was in tended probably as a burlesque on the bacchanalian scene in Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night" Mac's stage costume, it is said, was somewhat too decollete tobe considered full dress.— Keystone , mg. Bert Wilson and Carl Lane arrived in Challis Friday night, from Yellow Jacket. They will remain in this city a few days before returning, enjoying (?) our pleasant climate.

He reports a pleasant time at the capitol city, and that he helped place a strong ticket in the field —perhaps the w inning one. Mrs. Jennie Dodge, of Challis, explains in the Keystone in regard to the divorce with Dr. Dodge. Being acquainted with both par ties and the circumstances we are satisfied that Mrs. Dodge's statement is correct : • "The Keystone has an article in relation to the divorce of Dr. W. A. Dodge in the issue of the 11th inst., that is quite misleading i its nature, and places the writer in a false light. The Doctor, after using up all the means I had in obtaining an education, to fit him for his profession, at Bel levue Hospital, N, Y. City, de serted me, leaving me penniless. After having deserted me for years he begged me to allow him to get a divorce on the grounds of desertion, and nothing else. This was a false charge, as he ;r, j well knew—he being the desert ûig party- Butas he had left me f means ' " d would not help me any, I con sented to a divorce on that ground; now he claims that I interfered or was too inquisitive about his professional duties, which is equally false with the charge I consented to. submitted the complaint served on me in thisv-case to lawyer an<j^ Mi toac. charge w I have an able this last and and have unn been used to "SÄS name of an innecent party whom he had basely wronged. Had he made any such charge in his complaint he never could have had his divorce. The claim of abandonment was known by all * to be untrue; and the adding of interference was illegally inter polated, evidently, for no other purpose but to soothe a depraved but guilty conscience." good Two Chinamen were lodged in jail at Challis last Saturday after noon. It appears for the past month W illiam Bradbury, who lives at the end of West Main street, has been missing chickens from his poultry yard—one, two and up to five a night. Wednesday night Jack Flem ming secured a shot gun and watched for the chicken thief. He did not have to wait long, however, until he discovered a a man. with cat-like tread, en Last tering Mr. Bradbury's cellar, un doubtedly after provisions. Jack in a true detective style, demand ed of the sneak-thief what he was doing there ? But he did Q °t reply, thereupon Jack seized bis prisoner, who by the way showed fight, but this did not stop Jack from performing his All pleas and urging duty, could not make the chicken-rob ber believe that he should be taken on a visit to see the sheriff, so finally Jack became disgusted and struck him on the head with the butt end of the shot gun (but this was a mistake, have used the other end of the He should gun. thereby saving the county considerable expense), the striking business the captur ed bird (who by the way. proved to be a Chinaman, known as old Crazy Joe), lead first rate, and j ao k took him down to Sheriff After Hicks and Mr. Chinaman was lodged in jail for safe keeping. Another Chinaman, known as , Charlie, something, was implicated in the chicken steal ; ing affair—some of the chickens being found in his possession was arrested. They brought be fore Judge Zeigler's court last Saturday, tried, found guilty, and sent to the county jug for 30 days each to repent of their sins. Thus the path of the wayfarer is hard. This is just what the' wanted. There should be som. kind of a law to sentence them at hard labor—make the rascals pay for their board. als.)
