4 . COTTONWOOD, IDAHO, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 1923 VOLUME 31. NO. 8 $2.00 PER YEAR ASSOCIATION BOLLS ARRIVE WIMER RETURNS MONDAY WITH THOROUGHBRED CATTLE FROM COAST The Guernsey bulls bought re cently in Washington by Fraqk Wimer of this city for the Idaho County Bull Association arrived j in the county Monday and were distributed to their respective] blocks. They are the finest specimen of dairy animals that have ever been seen in the county and it would do any dairy fancier good to see these splendid bulls. They range in age from ten to fifteen months old, it being nec essary to buy younger animals than they expected, to get indi fidual breeding and heavy back ing of butterfat production. Mr. Gabby of the University of Ida ho, who assisted in selecting the bulls said that they were as fine a lot of individuals as it had ever been his pleasure to view. They are good enough that they can well afford to limit their service for the next few months and give them an opportunity to develop. Each animal is an out standing representative of the Guernsey breed and is backed by the best of breeding and heavy production. Francesca's Leader of Hill View Farm was placed in the Cottonwood block. His d?m made a record of 710 pounds of! butterfat on farm care. Fran- j cesca's Butternut his half broth-1 er on his sires side was placed in . the Orangeville block. His dam i who is a half sister of the 710 i pound dam of the first men tioned bull has a record of 604 pounds of butterfat on ordinary farm feeding and handling. Fir crest Robert Bay whose dam produced 592 pounds as a junior three year old was placed in the Greencreek block. His dam as a mature cow should be well up to ri wards the 700 pound mark. Bak er View Silver Tip went to the Ferdinand block. This bull took second place at the Whatcomb county, Washington fair in a very strong field. His dam pro duced 600 pounds of fat on ordi nary fana handling, bulls have been well raised and are grow thy type fellows and will undoubtedly grow into won derful sires to head the blocks. One hundred and twenty cows are signed up at present in the four blocks and it is expected, that now the bulls are on the I ground a good many men who 1 have previously expressed a de sire to join will become members ! of the association. A maximum ] These limit of 60 cows was placed on each block and when the demand for service exceeds this num ber other blocks will be added. No one but members of the asso ciation will be allowed the ser vices of the bulls. If you have a good cow you can not afford to not make use of this excellent breeding. It costs you $10 per cow to join which gives you breeding for ten years or as long as the bulls continue to be ser viceable. In addition to the importation of the bulls three bred heifers and two registered Guernsey calves were brought in. C. O. Vincent getting a Guernsey bred heifer which is a beautiful type of that breed and comes with a production record behind her of about 500 pounds of butterfat. She has all promises of develop mg into a high producing cow. William Spencer of Fenn also bought two Holstein heifers but when he received them from the train he had three, one of the heifers bringing a heifer calf in These heifers c~me transit. with production of about 600 pounds of butterfat. The first mail to be taken to the new Rice Creek post reestablished by the post office department will leave the local office Saturday. A three times a week schedule will be main tained between the new office and Cottonwood, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Jean Abercrombie has been named as the carrier. MAIL TO RICE CREEK.

Passage of the direct primary bill by the house of representa tives of the present Idaho legis lature, was not a surprise, al though the vote for the measure was larger than the advocates of the bill anticipated. The action of the house, however, has brought the primary issue into prominence, until it looms as one of the most paramount before the present session. A bitter fight is expected to be waged by the champions and the oppon- j ents of the measure. The bat tleground will be the senate. A majority of the members of that body are pledged to the passage of the measure. If the bill is passed by the senate, it will then l e for Governor Moore to decide whether or not Idaho is to con tinue to nominate its congres sional and state officials direct ly by the people or by conven tion. Moore said in one of his addresses during the ( campaign that he would sign a Republican primary bill but he would not sign a mugwump measure, which has been inter preted to mean he would approve a measure drafted by Republic ans but not one the product of a combination of political party Other Legislative News.
