Better than Last Year Tb« report for Msrcb, <rf the Boite weather bureau, is as fob In..: Tbs month of March war some, what warmer than usual, and was the driest March on record for Idaho. Very little new suow fell except in the higher mountains. The snow disappeared from the open country and from all but the higher valleys, and waa noticeably reduced in amount in the raount The supply, however, is sins. somewhat greater in most sections than it was at the does of March, lillO. Owing to the fact that dur ing the present season much of the enow was wet when it fell there has been less than the usual amount of drifting. Hildes were unusually frequent in the Wood-Malad river drainage area end in the watershed of Hip Mouth Fork of the Boise river, but were not frequent in other sec tions. Most of tho enow remain ing in the mountains is compact and will melt slowly. The present prospect is for nri average waterfl iw in the Salmon aud Clearwater rivers arid the trib utaries of the upper Columbia, •iigbtly more than the average flow in the upper Snake and Wood-Malad systems and in the • streams having their source in the Owyhee and Seven Devils mount sins, and slightly less than the average flow in the Bear, Boise end Payette rivers. Ir le probable that the late summer flow will be considerably better than that of 1310. ' HOISR KIvEK DBAINAOK. Plug —There were many slides and the enow ie very »olid. Mrs. Jennie Potter.

Because a bank account helps and en courages you to save. Because paying bills by check is the simplest and most convenient, and tbt check becomes a receipt. Because a check book is safer to carry around than a wallet with money in it; if the check book is lost you have lost nothing; with the purse its different. Because a bank account gives you a standing in the community. Because you are building up a val liable asset when you establish your credit at a good bank. IBANK IB! ■r h r.
