»nsiderable iiv irrelative to the Elk City ig country and a number wh?> have passed through Cotton J'Bod \vete disappointed because ey had purchased through tifkets to Mt. Idaho. For the benefit of the traveling public WÇ believe it important that the Jay of the country should be thoroughly understood and the facilities for travel well ex* plained. For some years, and in fact, until within the past '•month, thp entire travel has been for.ce.4 to go to Grangeyille and Mt. Idaho in order to obtain a means of having their freight packed to Elk City, thus involv ing additional expense and mak ing from ten to thirteen miles of unnecessary travel. This week two gentlemen stopped over at Cottonwood enroute to Elk City and not Understanding the situa tion or by being misinformed they had purchased their tickets fend sent their baggage through to Mt. Idaho. They were great ly surprised to find that a pack and saddle train left Cottonwood regularly and found by investi gation that by stopping over at Cottonwood instead of going through they would not only have saved thirteen miles of un necessary travel but $14 cash. The pack train from Cotton wood which leaves weekly deliv ers freight at the mines for two cents pgr pound and parties without baggage are charged $6 for saddle horse and can go at any time or with the regular train on Monday of each week. The distance from Cottonwood to the mines is 70 miles while the distance from Cottonwood via Grangeville is 80 miles. To bet ter enable the traveler to under stand the situation ; everyone has to come through Cottonwood to the mines or to the Prairie. Grangeville lays twenty miles south and east of Cottonwood by the present traveled road. Jack son Bridge across Clearwater is situate northeast of Grangeville and almost due east from Cotton wood. All travelers to the mines have to cross this bridge and one can readily understand that the dis tance from Cottonwood via Grangeville to this bridge must be more than the distance direct from Cottonwood. In the past owing to Grange ville being the only town that bad stores to supply the de mands of the mines that town was favorod with the entire trade of the mines, Cottonwood now enters the field not only with the lowest price stores on the Prairie but with excellent packing ac commodations. We say the lowest price stores, thereby know ing that Cottonwood is always able to sell goods lower than any of her sister towns simply be cause she has the advantage of location and freight rates. Cot tonwood can now not only sell you supplies cheaper than any point on the Prairie, but we can offer you good hotel accommoda tions, good treatment, good hors es, and save you time, travel and money in going via Cottonwood. Cottonwood is to have a 200 barrel flouring mill, and the Re port can now feei its efforts have been of some avail.—Juliaetta Advance. of Agricul Bu.letin Nb, I, of the \V either Service, for the week ending May 2nd 1893, Owing to the abnormally cold weather, high winds, frequent rains and snow flurries, the crop season is from four to six weeks late, The snow fall during the' winter was unusually heavy and afforded ample protection to the winter wheat, which looks well and promising. Stock weathered the winter fairly well except in a few localities where a scarcity of forage caused some loss by star vation, The cold, freezing weather during the latter part of April is reported to have seri ously damaged the fruit buds, and it is thought that the fruit crop will be considerably less than that of last year. The weather during the past week was very unfavorable for farm work, especially in the northern part of the state where heavy rains and cold, cloudy w'eather, rendered the soil unfit for tilling. In other sections plowing and seeding progresses slowly, at in : tervals. Refreshing showers during the latter part of the week brought relief to the farmers of the southern counties who are now making considerable head way in plowing and putting in crops, It is the general opinion of correspondents that the acreage of all crops will be greatly in creased this season. Notwith standing the lateness of the seas on, and the delay in seeding oc casioned by unfavorable w'eather conditions, the agricultural out look in Idaho for the coming sea son is quite promising and it is believed that the harvest will be the heaviest in years. J. H. Smith, Observer Weather Bureau Director, Discouraged Farmers. St. Paul, April 27.—Farmers of Minnesota and the Dakotas are pretty nearly discouraged over the outlook for crops. Not an acre of grain has been sown in North Dakota or at any point in Minnesota north of St. Cloud, and there is no prospect that any w'ill be sowp in the next ten days. It began snowing Wednesday and an average of eighteen inch es fell in twenty-four hours. Since that date it has rained al most continually and yesterday morning it again began snowing and fell steady all day all west from St. Paul to Dickinson, N. D, In northern Minnesota, around Crookston, Fisher and many other Red River points, thou sands of acres have been convert ed into lakes by overflowing streams, and all talk of putting in crops is out of the question.— Exchange. Who Was Shot? A most peculiar and perplex ing state of affairs has been noted in an exchange, and it will be w'ell for wide circulation to be given to the occurrence, so that all can judge for themselves as to the real condition of things. The story is this:— A duel was lately fought in Texas by Alexander Shott and John S. Nott. Nott was shot and Shott was not. In this case it is better to be Shott than Nott. There was a rumor that Nott was not shot, and Shot avows that he jljpr - < LEJ-A.I3, SO DO WE THUTK. 1 ' TOlVnJAHO BOUNTY, IDAHO. FRIDAY, MAY 19, 1893. » NUMBER 17. shot Nott, which proves either that the shot Shott shot at Nott was pot shot, or that Nott Tvas shot notwithstanding circum stantial evidence is not always good, It may be made to appear on trial, that the shot Shott shot shot Nott, or, as accidents with firearms are frequent perhaps the shot Shott shot shot Shott him self, when the whole affair would resolve itself into its original el ements, and Shott would be shot and Nott would not. We think, however that the shot Shott shot shot not Shott but Nott; anyway it is hard to tell who was shot. X Tannatt k Hogan's Bargain T y ist. 160 acres unimproved land 4 miles from Cottonw'ood.
