ISSUED EVERY FRIDAY Entered at the Postoffice at Cottonwood. Idaho for transportation through the mail as second class matter Subscription one year. Six months........... .f 1.00 Independent in Politics Copy for change of ad. must be banded in by Wednesday noon to insure a change FRIDAY, SEPT. 21, 1917 NAME OF PAPER CHANGED The name of this paper has been changed from Camas Prairie to Cot tonwood Chronicle, which name it will be known by hereafter. We believe tliat 99 percent of our readers will fa vor this change, as it is shorter, easier to say and besides, the principal rea son is that it proves a better adver tisement for the town and community. Unless a paper takes the name of the town in which it is published, nearly everybody—except those well ac quainted—must inquire where the pa per is published. Very few papers can be found any more that do not carry the name of the town in their head, and in fact the citizens of a town and patrons generally insist upon this rule. Another proof of Cottonwood's pros perity is tliat it is next to impossible to find a vacant bouse for rent—es pecially during the fall and winter months, when many farmers move to town for our excellent school advan tages. Wherever you fiud a town with plenty of vacant buildings you are sure to find a poor business town that has'been the victim of fake boom ers a<W mushroom growth. However, at least 50 more dwelling houses could be rented here readily at a rent that would pay better than ten percent in terest, and the wonder is that some of our capitalists do not put up a num ber of houses for rent. Lack of hous es here for rent forces many people to move to other towns during the school months. Every business house in any town should be represented in the adver tising columns of the local paper—not alone for the benefit derived from ad vertising—and that the publisher needs the money—but for the benefit of the town and community in general. A country towu is always judged from the appearance of its newspaper. If the paper is well patronized and looks prosperous, homeseekers and investors know that the town is a good place in which to iiyest and locate. If the paper has a starved appearance they know the towu is no good, and pass it up and go to a more enterprising place. An exchange suggests that since pur laws or nothing else in the United States suit the I. W. W's they should all be taken out into the ocean and an island found for them to govern to suit themselves. Wrong again. They should be taken out and dumped into the middle of some ocean and let them hunt their own island. It's a sure thing they would not be satisfied with an island that anybody else would select for them. Cottonwood is perhaps the largest and best town in the United States without a lawyer—which is sure evi dence that we are a law-abiding peo ple. Chas. W. (Ireenough, who prac ticed law here for several years, left here last June and is now practicing at Spokane in partnership with his father-in-law. "I never saw finer fall grown any- ( where in my life than they have this | year on Camas Prairie—although only a partial crop." This is the re port Dr. H. J. Smith brings back aft er an extensive business and pleasure trip through that section.—Moscow Star-Mirror. Don't destroy the Chronicle after reading it. Send it to some friend or relative. It will save you the trouble of writing—besides help to advertise this favored portion of the country. 33 years have taught the pro ducers of Gol den West cof fee something about the sel ecting. blend ing and roast ing of coffee.

Camas Prairie is noted for its big yields of fine potatoes as well as ev erything else that grows in the ground or on top of it. In all of our stores may be seen samples of spuds brought in by the farmers that would be sure prize-winners at any county or state fair. Some of them would fill a gun ny-sack—that is, enough of them would fill a sack. Have you noticed the fact that there has not been an explosion of a threshing machine in Latah county thus far this season? Some attribute this to the lack of smut in the grain. Others, and they are in a large ma jority, attribute it to the lack of I. W. \\"s. in the harvest fields.—Nez perce Herald. Something is radically wrong with the mail service when it takes a letter two or three days to go or come from here to Spokane or Portland. There is no reason why a letter leaving here in the morning should not reach Spo kane the same day and Portland the next morning. Russia comprises one-sixth of the earth's land surface and has a popu lation of 182,000,000 people, repre senting 64 racial and tribal divisions and speaking more thau 150 tongues. No wonder that it is impossible to find telephone wires in that country strong enough to stand the strain. The published statements of our two banks in this issue indicate the splendid prosperity of the town and surrounding country. No banks in the state are in better financial condi tion. ^UiUiMituuuiiainuutiiuiaiiiiiflHiiniiiiniiiuupuiiiiiiiaimiiiiiiiuiiiimtiiiiiNmiiuiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiHiiiiiimiumiiiiiuiui TRADE Where you can make your money go farthest.
