as a guarantee of good faith.
For the first time the Report
conies liefere its readers and for
the first time the people of Camas
Prairie are aide to tell the world
at large, their hopes and sorrows,
advantages and disadvantages,
past and future, through a paper
published in Cottonwood. We
to-day greet you, one and all, m t
as a stranger would, but trust
you will receive us as a friend,
and that the Report may ever
prove its staunch friendship to
the people of the county in assis
ting their progress and further
ing their interests.
Although the Report expects
to handle all matter of public in
terest that may come before it;
at the same time it will ever keep
in view that, "as we read, so do
we think," and we shall zealously
keep our columns free of all per
sonalities or matter that does not
tend to benefit and improve. In
other words, we intend to so pub
lish the Report, that any father
and mother can safely have it at
their fireside and know that it
contains nothing to injure or mis
lead. Politically we stand neu
tral to all parties, and shall en
deavor to make the Report, a
true reporter of all matters of
We are anxious to honestly re

the liberal patronage of the peo
ple of Idaho and is satisfied that
each subscriber will receive, di
rectly or indirectly, many times
the value of the subscription
To the people of Cottonwood
and vacinity the Report extends
its siecerest thanks. But a short
time since we arrived among you
and we were met with a frieddly
hand and a pleasant welcome.
When the first word was spo
ken about the locating of a paper
in your midst, we received noth
ing but encouragement and when
the time came, the people sprang
to our assistance nobly; where we
asked for one subscriber, we îe
ceived three. To day the Report
appears with a subscription list
beyond our most sanguine ex
At first we had thought of issu
ing part of our paper with Port
land print, but owing to the sup
port we received, we have decided
to print all at home. To the
people, again we would extend
our thanks, and trust that the
Report will always lie so edited
as to continue as we start, wel
comed by all,

One of the greatest curiosities
of the day was brought to light
in Vancowver, B. C. recently in
the shape of a bible bearing the
date 152(1, printed in Latin and
German text. The book contains
800 closely printed pages, is
bound in the thick wood and
sheepskin parchment , in use in
the days when the book was is
sued. Typographically the work
is remarkably clear and distinct
the pages being divided by a ver
tical line through the middle,
forming two separate columns,
each about two inches wide.
Another remarkable feature
about the book is that in many
places throughout the words are
printed in red, presenting an un
ique appearance. The volume is
about 4x6 inches, and is in a re
markably good state of preser
vation, The discovery of this
book gives denial to the general
ly conceeded opinion that the
first bible was printed in 1533.

In all that has been said about
the depleted condition of the U.
