MERIDIAN, ADA COUNTY, ID AMO, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 22. 1912. NUMBER 28 VOLUME 4. New» From Kuna. As Kuna contributes about $25, 000 a year in freight and passen ger business, the citizens are nat urally indignant that the Short Line after building a depot should allow it to remain vacant. The de pot was completed six months ago, but has never been opened to the public. J. G. Landsburg is building a new residence on his farm, and will vacate his Kuna property, turning the restaurant business over to Sebert Young. Under new and favorable laws, many are proving up around Kuna. Before a patent could not be se cured until water was all paid for, but now the patent is issued soon after proof is made. Now those who are hard-up can get a loan, or sell part to improve the rest. Sen ator Borah is given credit for the improved conditions. A new independendent high way district has been petitioned for, to be bounded as follows: The north line to be about half way between Kuna ahd Meridian, the south line to be the Snake river. East and west it will extend from the boundary of the new Mora independent district west to the Canyon county line. The assessed value of the property in ihe dist trict is about $1,500,000, and under the new law the district would have)all the road fund (except 5 per cent) to use in their own way. One of the active workers for the new proposed district stated this week that the election of a new county commissioner near Boise lessened their chances for much of an expenditure from the coun ty on the roads in the Kuna coun try, and this was one of the prin cipal reasons for getting up the new district. They cite the fact that Nampa on the west and Mora on the east each have organized under the new law and* wiuld not go back to the old system, same party stated that, the Kuna people had no complaint to make against Commissioner Crawford and that, the 17 miles of road that Crawford had put in good order during the past two years in the Kuna country was "more than former comissioners had done all together." D. R. Hubbnrd expects to locate soon with his family on one of his fine ranches near Kuna. Last week he sent a oar of fat hogs to Portland for which he intends to get 8c. He expects to market 20 car loads during the season. They are all Duroc Jerseys. Earl D. Painter and wife expect to leave soou for Pasadena, Calif., to spend the winter. They have rented their farm to A. W. Webb, of Wallace, Neb. A Thanksgiving ball is billed for Mathews hall next Thursday night. Kuna is now practically with out telephone service, as the ma jority have dropped the Bell phone.

I hav Beautifying the Country Schools. Boise Capital News: Love of flowers and attractive play-grounds made little 10-year old Lily Morrison, of district No. 44, near Kuna, carry a bucket, of water over three-quarters of a mile of desert every morning and care for the plants in the school house and yard with her own hands that they might be ready when the children gathered for another ses sion in the fall. All through the summer months and on every Saturday and Sun day morning after the opening of school she has trudged across the dusty roads and sage brush desert with her little bucket of water to care for the plants that bloom in tde school house and yard in a small district beyond the Kuna building. The little girl's love for flowers and an attractive school house is intense and she holds the record for her efforts to make it the prettiest country school house in the county. Attractive school houses and play grounds are all the rage in this county now. Almost every district has fallen in with the pro cession and has arranged enter tainments to raise the money for playground improvements. Many of the districts are taking adjoin ing lots for playground purposes under arrangements with the own ers and are beautifying the grounds for the benefit of the children of the schools. Swings, "teeter boards,''trapezes, and other things for the boys and basketball courts for the girls are being installed in nearly every sohool district of the county. Flowers and shrubbery are also forming a large part in the decor ation of the buildings and grounds of the districts. The school is be coming rapidly more of a social Q center for the community and the community is making it a more attractive and better place to meet. Some of the schools are spend ing money for pictures for their rooms arid several entertainments have already been given to raise money for more pictures. District No. 44 is one of these. An enter tainment has been planned for the evening of Thanksgiving and the money will be spent for the pur chase of decorations for the walls of the school rooms District No. 15 has raised $25 and Fairbank has «mise $7 for pictures iu its buildings. Prizes were awarded at the Inter-Mountain fair totaling $100 and many of the schools will use this money for pluyground beautification. Green Meadow won a $20 prize iu the graiua and grasses and has decided to apply this on the pur chase of swiugs and other play ground apparatus, The children of the school threshed the grains out by hand and put up an excel lent exhibit that captured a prize for the district. Those who did the work are Daniel and Harold Roberts, Earl Bartlett, Charles and Harry Brandel and Clayton Pierce. The exhibit was prepared under the direction of Miss Ethel Blev ; ns, their teacher. An oil stove in the school room is the apparatus with which the girls of district No. 15 are taught domestic science. The demands for cooking lessons have come in steadily from all parts of the coun ty and the districts are taking methods to give the girls the in struction they want. The classes that are being taught by the mothers who are particularly ef ficient in some feature of cookery are rapidly growing and almost all of the girls of the districts in which they have been started have joined them already.

Meridian, ■v »à Telling The Truth Pays The simple truth, in black and white, is that when you buy lumber or building material from us, you can throw all uncer tainly to the four winds. Does that sink in? Goods of inferior quality may coat little, but they may not be WORTH anything. No matter how little you pay for an article it is not really cheap unless it will satisfactorily fulfil the purpose for which it is intended. Our lumber and building material is made good enough for the White House, but is sold to those people who want "the best you've got." If you're that ktnd of a buyer, we car. please you.
