Miss Nannie Watson departed for Kansas last Tuesday morn ing to attend school. Thanksgiving services will be held at the church on Thanks giving evening. Mr. J. C. Rogers, Populist, is undoubtedly elected District At torney for this district. Lodging. —Mrs. Jose has fix ed up three elegant rooms in her dwelling house for lodgers. The large 30-stamp mill at the Yellow Jacket is nearly complet The machinery is being taken in at a rapid rate. If you are in need of a first class pair of boots or shoes, call M. O. Donohue, the old relia ble shoemaker, of Challis. 's George Hosford is very suc cessful in polities. Two years ago he was the only Republican elected in Custer county. He was elected Assessor by 12 maj ority, and this fall was elected Sheriff by 12 majority. y ed. on Ycu may talk about your dancing And the music that's entrancing And a-sailing in the wiki, delicious whirl.

Mr. Monk has been Indian Agent at the Lemhi Agency for the past t vo years. J. F. Wilkinson, and gentle man from Colorado, located a jold quartz claim, about three ni es North of Challis. last Sun ay. The quartz looks well, am. e hope the boys have struck a bonanza. It is said that it costs about 90 cents to get $1 to a "heathen," and then it is doubtful if the 10 cents is of any benefit to him. Yet millions are given to foreign missionary work, while our own poor go hungry. Notice. —Notice is hereby given that the partnership here i tofore existing between E;.ra ! Ora and Scott Frost is dissolved by mutual consent. Mr. Oin gives public notice that he will settle no debts contracted by said Frost. The Idaho legislature stands as follows: Senate-11 Republicans, 2 Dem ocrats and 5 Populists. House—Rcpubli ;ans 26, Dem ocrats 1 and Populists 9. On joint ballot the Republicans will have 37, Democrats 3 and the Populists 14. ' 'Are you judge of reprobates?' ' said an old lady as she walked into the judge's office. "I am the judge of probate," was the reply. "Well, that's it, I expect,"growl ed the old lady. "You see. my husband died detested, and left me several little infidels, and I want to be their executioner." Two runaway convicts took refuge in a church which was having an experience meeting. They listened to the stories told by several of the regenerated, until one of the fellows exclaim ed in a whisper to the other : Come, Jim, let's get out of this ! It's a lough crowd, and no man's life is worth a copper ! And out they lit. Commissioners Dudley and Kinney met in Challis last Fri day to canvass the votes. They also transacted other county business, among which was re ceiving the bridge across Sal mon river, at Watson's ranch, recently constructed by O. E.

The viewers appointed by Gov. McConnell to inspect the Boise county-Lemhi division of the state wagon road have reported. The viewers recommended that these divisions do not be accept ed until certain repairs, enumer ated in the reports, shall have been made in accordance with the specifications. On the Boise county division it is estimated there is still work amounting to $1350 to be done, including turn outs. drains, etc. In some plac es the grade is reported to ex ceed the 10 per cent, maximum provided by law. Reports from two Salmon river divisions show a similar state of affairs. Governor McConnell said yes terday he would not accept any division of the road until it was completed according to the spec ifications. "The state wagon roal com mission." continue l the gever nor.

The contractors were paid in full, but unless they complete their work, the state will sue them on their bonds."—Boise Statesman. to is The following from the Boise Statesman will be of interest to the many friends cf the Steen brothers : A dispatch in the SanFranciseo Examiner from Portland states that by the provisions of the will of William McKay, deceased, a number of western people are heirs to an estate in South Afri ca, the appi-aisement of which is said to be $15,090,000. McKay was a Scotchman of an adventurous turn of mind, went to the Kimberly diamond fields and amhssed a large for He tune, which he bequeathed to his brothers and sisters, eight in j number, whose progeny are scat tered almost to the four corners of the earth. They are well rep resented in the W est. The dis patch says the Steen family are in the direct line of the heirs, as is also Robert M. Campbell, who is at the Yellow Jacket. There are other heirs in Portland, Oak (land, SanFranciseo and Colfax, ****JOB DEPARTMENT.#### * 17.00 Letter Heads, per 1.000, Letter Heads, per 500.

Miss S°P hie M - Campbell to a reporter. She told the story re luctantly, because she is not yet convinced it is not a myth. She is in possession of a copy of the will which she had but recently received from the son of the ex ecutor now residing in Scotland. It is drawn up in business-like form and from its wording would indicate that the maker, antici pating death, hai settled up the estate that the executor might have as little to do as possible. "There are now living eleven direct heirs, each of whom is to receive an equal share of the es tate. Evidently the aged mil lionaire had not forgotten his old home, for he sets aside $1,000, 000 for the poor of his parish in England. A person whom he designated as "Old Andrew" is provided for by a legacy of $250, 000, and $500,000 is bequeathed to neice, now residing in Ohio. The executor is reimbursed for services by a legacy of $1,000, 000 and $50,000 is set aside to pay attorney's fees, everj thing is paid there will be enough left to make the legatees millionaires—that is if the estate is worth $15,000,000 as claimed..''
