MAKE BIG HIT
GRANGEVILLE BOYS STAGE
PLAY HERE BEFORE
A packed house greeted
Orangeville Post No. 37 of the
American Legion, at the Or
pheum theatie, Tuesday evening
when they presented under the
auspices of Cottonwood Post No.
40, a musical farce comedy, en
titled, "Sitten' Pretty."
The two principal characters
of the evening. Jack Edwards
and Leon Cone kept the house in
a continual uproar. Leon Cone,
impersonating Countess de Mon
tozon, had the audience guessing
throughout the entire evening's
entertainment and many folks in
Cottonwood were overworking
their brains to identify the wo
man. One man, whose name we ■
do not wish to make public re
marked, "It must be Miss Mc
Grath taking the part of the
countess," to which he received j
the prompt reply : "She is not !
that large." After which he
again named over several other
women residing in Orangeville
whom he thought fitted with the
features of the countess.
Other members of the cast al
so played their parts to perfec
tion and we can, we believe,
honestly say that Cottonwood
enjoyed the play immensely.
From a standpoint of attend
ance, it could have been no bet
ter for the hall was comfortably
crowded, the receipts running
near the $100 mark.
The legion boys from Grange
ville have asked us to extend
their sincerest of thanks to the
people of Cottonwood for the
splendid turn out. They also
wish to especially thank the local
post for their assistance, which
they realize had much to do with
the success of their play.
In the words of our friend.
John Nash: "It sure is awful
these days when a man can't tell
a woman from a man." Mr. Nash
w r as not fully convinced until the
wig was taken from the head of
the countess and then it was
hard for him to believe that the
part was played by a man, Leon
Cone, an oversea veteran.
NEW COUNTY AGENT.
Carl M. Grayson, county agri
cultural agent, recently appoint
ed, arrived in Idaho county last
Saturday. He will have an of
fice down town , in Grangeville,
next to the Sweet and Hanull
market. The office has previ
ously been at the court house
but it was felt that an office
down town would be more ad
vantageous to the farmers.
Mr. Grayson will hold the of
fice for three months, on trial,
the expenses of which will be
paid out of the appropriation
still remaining under the old
Pavey administration. Should
the now agent prove satisfactory
it is said, the county commis
sioners no doubt will make
The name of Charles A. Johns
ton was sent to the senate last
Friday by President Harding to
be confirmed for the position of
postmaster in Cottonwood. There
is no question but what the sen
ate will confirm the appointment
and it is thought that Mr. Johns
ton will take up his new duties
within the next thirty days. Mr.
Johnston is at the present time
visiting with relatives in Wiscon
sin, having l>cen called there by
the serious illness of his mother.
It was his good fortune to arrive
home in time to see his mother
alive. Mr. Johnston's mother is
in a critical condition.

by the Knights of Columbus,
Monday evening, for members of

The Cottonwood high school
basket ball team accompanied by
Principal Bossinger, their coach,
departed Thursday morning for
Lewiston to enter the basket ball
tournament which will be held
in the Lewiston state normal
gymnasium on Thursday, Friday
and Saturday to decide the high
school championship of this dis
trict of Idaho. The winners will
go to Moscow in March to com
pete for state honors. *
The teams to compete in the
tournament are: Grangeville,
Nezpf rce, Kooskia, Lapwei, Lew
iston, Gifford and Cottonwood.
Each of these teams has made a
good record during the season
and are invited to participate on
the basis of the number of games
won and lost.
Cottonwood had been invited
to take part in the games but a
protest was entered by Kamiah
stating that they were entitled
to the place, giving as their
grounds that they had won moie
games than Cottonwood. In
order to satisfy the contention of
Kamiah a game was ordered
played between Kamiah and Cot
tonwood on a neutral floor, by
officials of the organization,
Wednesday evening. Grangeville
was selected as the place for the
contest, with the condition that
the winning team w r ould be eligi
ble to enter the contest at Lewis
ton. Kamiah proved an easy
victim for Cottonwood, the local
hoys having defeated the river
boys by a score of 21 to 34. It is
hoped that Cottonwood will
make as good a showing at the
tournament in Lewiston as they
did against the Kamiah boys.
The team will return 'Sunday
The boys making the trip are:
Kenneth Miller, Francis Homar,
Karsten Schroeder, Raymond
Tacke, George Mitchell, Glenn
Rink, Raymond Nims, James
Nash and Delbert Hale.
MUST DECLARE VALUE.
George Poler, Monday of this
week received notice from the
general baggage agent that ef
fective March 1 all baggage
checked must bear a valuation
made by the owner. Heretofore
the valuation placed on trunks
has l>een $100, which was all
that could be recovered by the
owner in case of loss. The in
novation will prove very helpful
to persons checking valuable
l>aggage. A charge of 10 cents
per hundred over $100 will be
made on valuation.
Tli is new rule has been in
vogue in the east for several
years and passengers having
baggage to check have been
eager to take advantage of this

SERIES OF SOCIAL EVENTS SCATTER
DULL CARE AND SCORE DIG
HIT IN THIS SECTION
During the past week things
have been very much alive in
this section, socially speaking,
and most of us have greeted the
wee sma' hours with a regularity
that has became almost a cus
19th Wedding Anniversary.
Some 60 friends and neighbors
gathered at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. August Kopczynski, Wed
nesday evening, to assist them
in celebrating thqjr 19th wed
ding anniversary. The affair
was planned by their friends and
not until they took possession
of the home did they have any
idea that such an event had ever
been planned. The game of
"500" occupied the visitors at
tention until 11 o'clock after
which a fine luncheon was serv
ed, the "eats" having been
brought by the visitors. After
the luncheon dancing became the
chief amusement, not the "jazz"
kind but the old fashioned ones
which some of the folks are still
able to dance in a manner that
would entitle them to first prize.
The winners at cards were: Mrs.
John lloene and Barney Seubert.
Mr. Kopczynski says that he
had some inkling of the affair
but his friends insist that he
did't, for had he, more wood
would have been piled in the
Birthday Surprise Party.
The home of Mr. and Mrs. Mat
Duclos last night was the scene
of a jolly birthday party, plann
ed by Mrs. Duclos and her child
ren in honor of her husband.
As soon as the guests arrived no
time was lost in placing the
tables, 11 in all, for "500". At
the conclusion of the card games
refreshments were served after
which dancing was indulged in.
The first dance of the evening
was danced by Mr. and Mrs.
Duclos, who although past the
prime of life still were able to
make some of the younger folks
set up and take notice. Only old
time dances were danced.
The winners at cards were:
Wm. Ruhoff, playing as a lady,
first; Mrs. Joseph Koll>eck, con
solation; Marcus Lies, first and
Alois Holthaus, consolation.
Now folks if Mat was a little
late in delivei ing your morning's
milk, forgive and forget, or if he
failed to bring you any cream,
remember there were folks at
the party who might have hit

The dance given Wednesday

All concerned are doing nicely.
Edwin Nelson, of Fenn, has
addressed a communication to
the director of agriculture of
north Idaho, in Lewiston, B. F.
Savage, in which he suggests
the organization of an associa
tion of registered livestock to be
confined to the region surround
ing Lewiston. In his communi
cation, Mr. Nelson says:
"A number of pure-bred
breeders on the prairie are talk
ing of organizing a pure-bred
breeder's association, compris
ing all pure-bred stock including
horses, cattle, hogs and she; p.
This association could hold one
good annual sale every year and
have a little show at the same
time, and Lewiston is the logical
place for holding such a sale, l>e
ing that you have the barns and
everything for such a purpose.
"I would like to have your
opinion regarding this matter
and to have you take it up with
the breeders in your locality,
If we could get organized this
spring or early summer, we could
have a good sale next winter.,
These are o n 1 y suggestions
which 1 mention. If you have
any better suggestions, I would
like to hear them."
A number of prominent farm
ers have already written Mr.
Savage urging him to take steps
to organize such an organization,
