GREETING.
As announced last week, the
Chronicle has been purchased
from Mr. F. S. Wimer by the un
dersigned, who with his two
sons, Howard and Harold, are
now in charge of the business.
We are not entire strangers to
this portion of the country, as
the writer spent more than 30
years in the newspaper business
in the adjoining state of Oregon
—the last ten years at Joseph,
Wallowa county-less than 100
miles southwest of Cottonwood.
For many yèars we had been
hearing about, the wonderfully
rich farming country of Camas
Prairie and that Cottonwood, its
principal trading point, was (for
its size) the most prosperous and
best business town in the entire
northwestern country.
Therefore, when we learned
that Mr. Wimerhad concluded to
sell the Chronicle and retire from
the business, we were not long
in deciding upon buying the pa
per and locating here.
Mr. Wimer has far greater
abili^' as a writer and publisher
than is possessed by the average
country editor, and we fully re
alize that it will be no easy task
to "fill his shoes" in guiding the
Chronicle safely over the sea of
journalism. But we will do our
very^beat to keep the paper up to
its present high standard of ex
cellence-and if possible to im
prove it as we become better ac
quainted and the business justi
fiés improvement.
The Chronicle will remain in
dependent in politics and will en
deavor to giv^ everybody a
square deal, regardless of their
political or religious beliefs.
Our principal aim will be to work
unceasingly for anything and ev
erything that tends for the wel
fare, upbuilding and improve
ment of Cottonwood and the
splendid and magnificent country
tributary to it.
With these few remarks we lay
off our coats and begin the work
of assisting our energetic citizens
in keeping Cottonwood up to its
well-earned reputation of being
the best little town on the map.
Sloan P. S hutt.
It is rather an up-hill job for a
stranger in a strange land to get
out an interesting local newspa
per without the assistance of the
citizens of the town and com
munity. Our readers' knowing
of any item of news of general
interest to the public can render
us a very great favor by report
ing the same by telephoning,
writing or otherwise. We intend
to keep up the Chronicle's repu
tation as one of the best local pa
pers in Idaho, but cannot give
the news without first hearing
aboutit. Give us the news—and
we'll do the rest.
An exchange truthfully says:
"A live bunch draws business to
a town; a dead lot only draws
flies." This reminds us that to
our live and energetic commer
cial club the credit is due for
making Cottonwood the best and
most substantial little business
city in the entire country—east,
west, north or south.

The levy for state and county pur
poses completed by the board of
county commissioners is 13.4 mills as
against 11 mills last year. The in
crease is due to larger demands from
the state and the new law which has
required raising $15 per capita for the
school children of the county. The
state is asking this year in round num
bers $28,000 as against $20,000 for
1916. The county current expense
fund is less than last year but the in
crease of the county general school
ftind will bring the money to be raised
lor county purposes, about the same as
for 1916. The assessed value of the
county is approximately $12,000,000.
The principal reason that Cot
tonwood is the most substantial
and prosperous town (for its size)
in the United States is because it
is surrounded by thaj-ichest farm
ing country in the TJ. S. and is
the trading point for more than
a thousand of the most energetk,
successful and prosperous farm
ers and stockmen to be found in
the entire country. Wherever you
find farmers and stockmen pros
perous, everybody else is prosper
ous also._
F. S. Wimer this week sold the
Cottonwood Chronicle to S. P.
Shutt, of Joseph, Ore. Brother
Wimer is one of our most highly
esteemed contemporaries and a
good newspaper man, but he is
going back to the soil—400 acres
of it—and we don't blame him.
If we had half that much we'd
follow suit. We extend the wel
come hand to Brother Shutt.—
Ntzperce Herald.
A friend was wishing one of
our departing soldier boys the
best of luck and a safe delivery
from enemy bullets, to which the
young man cleverly replied:
"Well, I only hope I'll be as
much missed on the firing line as
I think I will be at home."
There will be more fire extin
guishers in the threshing ma
chines on the prairie next year
than there were this. Experi
ence is a dear teacher, but it
seems to be necessary.
We desire to thank our ex
changes for their kindly words
of welcome and encouragement
in their reference to our entry
into our new field of newspaper
I work.
