O. Martin as manager of the concern in this city. Mr. Martin has been with the Farm ers Union for about 2 years and the directors expressed regret in his resignation but his pri vate business affairs required the same. Mr. Devore, the new manage* selected by the warehouse peo ple will take charge about the middle of next month. He at one time was engaged in the grain and elevator business in North Dakota and is highly re commended . Mr. Devore's grain experience dates back as far as 1896. The Devore family have made Cottonwood their home for some time and this week the family will go to Lewiston were they will spend two months af ter which they will again take up their residence in Cotton wood. GRASSHOPPER APPEARING. Many farmers in this locality have been complaining the last few days about grasshoppers which have been making their appearance in large numbers. In order to combat this pest we will gladly publish any recipe that has been successfully used in ex terminating them. Below we reprint a recipe recently given out to the farmers of Lewis county by their county agent. It reads as follows: Mix thoroughly 25 pounds of course bran, 1 pound white arse nic. Then to two gallons of water add one-half gallon of sugar factory molasses, and 6 finely chopped lemons. Stir thoroughly and then pour over the bran and arsenic mixture. Work thoroughly until all lumps are worked out and the bran is all damp.. Scatter where grass hoppers are working a rod or two on either sides as you would sow grass seed broadcast by hand or an end gate seeder might be used where there is considerable area to be covered. From 8 to 25 lbs. of mixture may be applied per acre and if spread evenly will not endanger live stock. The best time to apply this is about 4 or 5 o'clock in the evening and best results will be noticed in about 2 or 3 days. The latter part of the week to the middle of next week is the time to use this. RECEIVES DRESS HEMLETS W. W. Flint this week receiv ed 8 captured German helmets from Montie B. Gwinn, state chairman of the Victory Loan Committee to be distributed to the 8 largest purchasers of Vic tory Bonds. The helmets were dress parade helmets and were to be used by the German army when they entered Paris. The eight largest subscribers, entitled to the souvenirs are the following : First National Bank, Cotton wood. Cottonwood State Bank, Cot tonwood. Bank of Camas Prairie, Grangeville. First Natiopal Bank, Grange ville. August VonBarfcen, Fenn. .T. W. Créa. Fenn. Parker ft Parker, Cottonwood. Anonymous. _ MARTIN SELLS 480 ACRES Bought Land in 1908 for an Average of $36 an Acre. E. O. Martin this week closed a deal with Mr. and Mrs. C. Wensman whereby he disposed of his fine farm 5 miles from the city consisting of 480 acres for which he received $42,500. The deal closed by Mr. Martin is one of the largest real estate transactions that has taken place in this neighborhood for some time. Mr. Martin secur ed this land in 1908 for which he paid on an average of $36 per acre and when he sold he realiz ed $100 an acre for two sections and the remainder bringing him $70 an acre. Mr. Martin's reason for sell ing is due to the fact that he wishes to secure larger holdings and when asked if he intended to leave Camas prairie stated that he plight again invest in land on the prairie if the right layout could be found. Mr. Martin, who for the past two years has been manager of the Farmers Union Warehouse Co. has also resigned his posi tion with this company and C. L. Devore has been named to fill the vacancy. Mr. Martin and his esteemable family will spend the summer in Cottonwood and this fall will remove to a lower altitude. The Martins have many friends in Cottonwood who hope they will re-invest in propety here. Mr. Martin himself is a pro duct of Camas prairie having lived here all his life, being a man of middle age clearly shows what anyone can do on Camas prairie who has the ambition and get-up to get out and rustle. OPEN OFFICES IN THE CITY The Cottonwood Highway District has fitted up a suite of rooms in one of the Simon build ings on main street which are to be used in -the future as perma nent headquarters by the com missioners of the district. The place has recently been re-paint ed and otherwise re-decorated. M. P Pierce, secretary-treas urer of the highway commis sion stated that they were re ceiving many inquiries each day from various bonding companies throughout the country in re gard to the $90,000 worth of bonds that will be offered for sale by this district in the near future. People throughout the country, heretofore have paid little attention to bonds but since the government has offer ed various bonds for sale from time to time during the war many people now realize what good investments bonds really are and the bonding companies have large inquiries for differ ent kinds of bonds. This also has given the bonds a better market value and in many in stances throughout the country they have sold better than par. So perhaps, the Cotton wood district no doubt will re ceive a good price for its bonds. ORGANIZE CLASS MONDAY J. B. Running, leader of the Cowboy band at Grangeville will be in Cottonwood every Monday, beginning with Monday, June 2, for the purpose of giving pri vate lessons on the violin or any band instruments. Mr. Running also expects to organize a band here if enough material can be secured to organize. Anyone interested in a band or who wishes to receive private lessons may make the necessary arran gements at the Cottonwood hotel Monday or by writing to him at Grangeville. TICKET DAY JUNE 7TH The committee in charge of the Chautauqua tickets have set Saturday, June 7th as ticket day and they will have their various ticket sellers out-to urge people to buy tickets. So be ready to buy one when the committee calls on you. The season ticket is $2.50 for adults with a 25c war tax which makes them the same as last year, students tick ets will sell for $1.50 and chil dren for $1.00. Single admis sion to the various sessions amounts to three times the cost of a season ticket. Even though you attend a few numbers it is economy to buy a season ticket. SEASON OPENS SUNDA\. Deputy Game Warden Don C. Fisher of Grangeville was in the city Monday placing fish ing license on the market at the various business houses. The opening day for fishing will be next Sunday and several of the local minrods are already mak ing plans to spend the opening day trying to catch the finny tribe in the various streams tri butary to Cottonwood. The li censes this year will be $1.50 for residents of the state. The fishing season has been open for some time in the larger streams. The posponing of the opening of the season is due to the fact that fishing in North Idaho has been somewhat poor for the past years and the state fish department wished to give the young trout a chance to increase and therefore the law was changed.

Cottonwood won its second victory in the Prairie League Sunday from Grangeville before a large crowd of baseball en thusiasts on the local grounds by a score of 11 to 6. The score by no means indi cates the many exciting mom ents that developed during vari ous stages of the game between the home boys and the county seat aggregation. Up to the sixth inning it looked like most anyone's game. Grangeville took the lead in the second inning by making the first score of the game. In the second half of the second Cot tonwood tied the score and in the third the local team annexed three more runs to its credit. In the sixth Grangeville added three runs to its score and the standing of the two teams was 5 to 4 in favor of Cottonwood. In the seventh and eighth Grangeville made two costly er rors which resulted in Cotton wood running in 6 scores and safely placing the game on ice. The batteries for Cottonw^d were Rustemeyer and Rhoades; Grangeville Kabat and Myers. The following is the score by innings : Cottonwood 0 13 0 0 1 2 4 x—11 Grangeville— 0 10 0 0 3 0 2 0—6 The line up: Cottonwood Grangeville Rhoades c Kabat Rustemeyer P Meyers G. Lange 1st Eimers J.

Tucker, Ada county agricultural agent. Present in dications are that all the wool thus pooled will bring 58 to 57 cents a pound, according to Mr. Tucker, and that this will be materially a higher price than the small growers could obtain by dealing with the buyers indi vidually. The first year of the operation of the pool, he said, growers saved about 7 cents a pound, and last year about 3 cents. M. H. Housed of Portland, one of the biggest grain exporters in the northwest and a member of the Federated Grain corporation was in Lewiston recently. Mr. Houser has maintained an office here for several years, but this was his first visit to the city since assuming his government position. • He predicts that grain prices will hold up during 1920 after the government relin quishes control.
