C. L. Devore at the present
time engaged by the Madison
Lumber company as auditor for
the concern of their various
branches on the prairie has
been selected by the board of
directors of the Farmers Union
Warehouse Co. to fill the
vacancy caused by the resigna
tion of E. 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
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.
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

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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
