Idaho county again went over
the top in its war work this
week subscribing its quota of
$340,000. Last Saturday even
ing the county was behind
$110,000, Cottonwood being the
only city in the county over the
top but with the closing of the
Victory bond subscription books
Wednesday evening the county
had subscribed its quota. Much
of the honor in Idaho county go
ing over the top is due to tne
hai'd work of Chairman Flint
who worked for the subscrip
tion since its being placed on
' the market from early day to
late at night and for the past
four weeks has sacrificed his
personâl business in order to
ho'd the county in the honor
roll. The Victory loan, the last
one to be put on by the govern
ment was subscribed in Idaho
county by volunteer subscrip
tion no one being forced to buy
bonds as was done in some of
the former drives.
Cottonwod Oversubscribed.
Cottonwood is the only city in
the countv to oversubscribe its
quota and went over the top
with 83 1-3 percent to the good,
its quota being $72,000 and the
subscription received here being
$96,000. Grangeville, Ferdinand
and Stites reach their quota.
Whitebird and Kooskia are far
behind in subscribing its quota.
Whitebird having less than 50
percent of its quota and Koos
kia being a little more than 50
Idaho county in the future
can always look back with great
pride to the war record it has
attained in the Great War, sub
scribing its quota at each and
every one of the bond drives as
well as doing its share in other
war work. Cottonwood and
vicinity especially have cause
for great joy and pride in the
last drive in making the splen

The resu't of the election
Monday clerrly shows that the
people of this vicinity want
good roads ard are willing to do
everything in their power to
show state officials that the
community wants the North and
South highway to pass through
Cottonwood which route has al
ready been designated by the
state highway board and all,
that was wanted was money to
help byiild the state highway
through the Cottonwood dis
trict. Cottonwood, now with
out a doubt will be on the main
line of the new state highway,
as well as having money left,
when the bonds are sold to do
considerable work in other sec
tins of the district.
The good road boosters of
Cottonwood and vicinity are
highly elated over the splendid
vote recorded in favor of the

A preleminaby hearing was
held in Justice B. L. Iiussman's
court Wednesday, Rufus Walker
answering a charge of assault
with a deadly weapon preferred
against him by-John Nuttman
also of Keuterville.
It is stated trouble arose over
the right of Walker to drive cat
tle across land owned by Nutt
man on Salmon river in order
to reach a piece of pasture land
Walker had leased lying just be
yond the Nuttman holdings,
and which could not easily be
reached by any other route than
by way of an old trail through
Mr. Nuttman's holdings. Walter
is supposed to have broken the
locks on the gates and when
Nuttman remonstrated an argu
ment and bad words ensued
with the result, it is stated
that Walker pulled a six. shoot
er and held it on Nuttman.
Walker claimed self defense.
The result of the trial was that
Walker was bound over to the
district court although both
parties in the controversy show
ed a disposition to arbitrate
their troubles no doubt both
feeling that the blame was
about evenly divided.

Cottonwood lost its second
game of the Prairie League last
Sunday afternoon before a
crowd of several hundred per
sons and in a drizzling rain.
The game was called at 3:30
with Carl Hermist in the box
for Cottonwood. In the fifth
inning Albers was substituted
for Hermist and in the eighth
faithful old George Rustemeyei
was sent to the box to finish the
game. The game was slow from
start to finish owing to the
grounds being in bad shape and
the weather also took much of
the pep out of the boys as well
as the crowd. The long fly hit
made by a Kamiah batter in the
third inning and' caught by Hat
trup was the only feature of the
game. Hattrup made a long run
for the ball and made an excel
lent catch.
Bob Johnson of Kamiah um
pired the game and his deci
sions were satisfactory to both
teams. Bob being fair and im
partial on every decision made
by- him throughout the game.
The new grounds are yet in
bad shape but the base ball club
hopes to have it in better shape
when the next game is played
Owing to a heavy downpour
of rain immediately after the
game several of the Kamiah
boys did not return home until
the following day.
The Ferdinand baseball team
defeated Grangeville at Ferdi
nand in a very exciting game.
According to reports it was a
splendid exhibition of the
national game, the score being 3
to-3 in the eighth inning. The
Grangeville^ team was accom
nanied to Ferdinand by the
Cowboy band and a large dele
gation of fans. The batteries
for Grangeville were Meyer,
Hartnot and Kabot; Atkinson
and Fry performed for Ferdi
In a drizzling rain Nezperce
defeated Ilo-Vollmer by a score
of 5 to 0. Owing to threatening
weather many of the Nezperce
baseball enthusiasts were kept
away from attending the game.
