A. COUNTY BUILDING. I 1 I I CUSTER COUNTY JAIL. The above is a true picture of Custer County's Jail, taken from This impos-j : ing structure made of rough lumber, was built thirty years ago, ! and has been in service ever since. We print this picture to show : the people of the county what kind of a county jail Custer county j ! has. Words cannot describe it, while a picture may. We do not ! believe one-fourth the people ever had the pleasure of seeing Cus-1 ter county's jail. Most counties point with pride to their county buildings. Wonder if Custer county can point with pride to its I county jail and court house ? The above jail is relic of ancient days. For thirty years, A. D., I it has stood in an old alkili swamp, where it stands today, in the ia erood photograph made by B. S. Brown of Challis. west end of town. You can note by the picture how the boards at the bottom have rotted off, and see the high board fence leaning ! and about to fall down. Also note again the two little 6x8 inch windows to let in light and ventilation. It is damp and musty,and a person's life is in danger from fever if they are unfortunate to be penned in this hog pen. It is a standing advertisement for ! criminals, for they know that a ten year old boy with a toothpick can break eut. The last two prisoners coafined ia this old got out without any trouble. This jail is unsafe and unhealthy, j and alive with bed-bugs. Talk about the horror of the Russian prisons, they are places compared with the Custer county jail. j Over in Ada county the other day the grand jury reported their $60,000 court house and jail damp and unhealthy, and the Court j ordered it repaired or torn down at once. What would the Court j j do should the judge examine the sanitary conditions of this jail. i Yet the above is a true picture of Custer county's prison- This 'jail was condemned by a grand jury twenty years ago. Custer ! county is now financially able to have some decent county ouild s—some protection to the county records from fire—and the . people demand that the Commissioners take some action this mat- ; iter. Last month for economy sake, wa suppose, our Board order sills , , , , , , The work has been performed and it will cost the county $170.00. This may be economy, but is it ? The old shack would not bring $25 today, unless some rancher wanted it for a hog pen, then it would be unsafe for they could county ; ■ ln g. A new floor was laid and new 1 ed the county jail repaired. • put under the building, etc. root their way to liberty. Next week we will publish a picture of Custer county's court house. We will make postal cards as relics from the buildings, and sell two of them for 5 cents ! ' i i • DIPHTHERIA. ! Challis is now under quarantine for diptheria. and no person is ', 'allowed to enter or depart from Challis without permission of the j J Board of Health. The mails each are fumigated at postoffice be ! I° re sen ^ n E out. On Saturday. 30th, Frank Drake and William Barselow were taken down with it, and Tuesday evening Frank Drake died. Drs. Wright and Murphy of Salmon, were called and! arrived Monday night, Feb. 1st to assist Dr. Lynn. 1 day Dr. Wright went home. Dr. Murphy left for home Saturday jon a urgent call, but will return if needed. The citizens $250 for Dr. Murphy to remain 10 days and assist Dr. Lynn, as On Wednes raised j there was more work than one physician could attend to. Nearly . every child in toan hate been taecinated t\ith anti-toxine, and 'the doctors think they have about checked the spread of the dis ease. Those reported down with diphtheria, although a very mild form, except Will Barselow, and he is improving, are : Two of the line^on children: Mrs. John Bralbury and two child-, ren, and Leonard Holzle- The schools are closed, and no public gatherings of any kind are allowed. . .... ,1 ; death of traisIv drakl Frank Drake is dead. He died on Tuesday night, Feb. 2nd, 1909, at 8 o'clock, when the Curfew bell was ringing, from diphtheria. Wherever it bereaved ones were many and from the heart. ! Bright, happy and cheerful, Frank carried sunshine with him j Wherever he went. He had always a smile and a pleasant word i for his friends. His death comes as a dark shadow to friends and to his relatives who loved him so dearly. ! j The funeral was held on Wednesday 'afternoon, the 3rd, and on account of the contagious disease from which he died, only his 1 parents were allowed to attend. Frank was born at Malad j years 6 months and days ago, and is the eldest son of Mr. and 1 Mrs. David B. Drake of Challis, Idaho. i j Death is a hard master. He would take from us of our bright-1 est and best, but he cannot ever mar memory. It will serve as a I balm to the wounded hearts. Frank leaves behind a father and ; j mother, two sisters, and one younger brother, besides many rela- J tives and a host of young friends to mourn his loss.
