Best of treatment accorded to all. W. A. MULLINS. Mkkau's Liniment for Rheumatism. The pain goes so quickly after you apply Sloan's Liniment for rheumatic paine, neuralgia, toothache, lum bago. sprains, and Us so easy to use. It quickly penetrates and soothes without rubbing and is far cleaner and more effective, than mussy plas ter» or ointments. Keep a bottle in the house and prompt relief, not only from nerve-pains but from bruises,strains, sprains, over-axercise and all exter nal ax:hes. At your druggist, 25c, 50c, $1.00. Remember, there is one big differ ence betweeu Meridian and all other (own*: This town is where you live. £ ' MERIDIAN TOWN ITEMS. « The man who lives only for him , of , „ , self will soon lie living alone. In this town. If we got together more, we would get more together. The vtlluge band makes sweet music but ft isnt in It with the village car penter. When you write a letter, tell how well this town ts looking, It la as Im portant as the stamp. This community Is ready to say a good word for the man who la ready to say a good word for the «immunity. Don't think less of this town 1ie The biggest town cause it is small. In the world'* history was Bethlehem. The way to get money out of land get good la to Improve it. The way out of this community is to develop It. You never can enrich your farm by putting the fertilizer on somebody else'» land. You can never build up thia community by sending your money somewhere else. The Nat in im I III.

In us Stute Food Commissioner While say*: "If every household would have one pet pig It would not only solve the garbage collection problem, but would be a means of utilizing this mutts food product to tut excellent financial advantage anil Increase the production of our meat supply very materially." Now the Time* editor wagers a hat that Mr. White has never tried this one-pig proposition It Is not a suc cess, mainly for the reason that the pig Is a sociable being and emphat bally objects to being all alone, The only thing the owner receives Is the squeal, and us we are not , equipped like the big packing house so we can use the hy-prodnet In finding the squeal keeping a pig especially In town, is poor business, .

( tty II. w, Hochbaiimi In view' of the serious labor sliorl age, every thinking farmer Is look ing around for way* and means to cut down the labor Item and yet at the same time to gel a maximum crop this season. Here III the Boise valley we pul up our hay, In spite of entirely different conditions, ulmoet us they do In the central west. The hay Is raked, fus sed over, cocked, lifted by hand onto wagons ]nst as If we were making hay in Ohio. AH we need to com plete the methods of "back east" la to cap the hay wjih cap». U I» real ized that the qutllty 1* »lightly im proved but this at a tremendous cost, all out of proportion to the guln. In the great Twin Fall» section, on hoth sides of the Snake river, nparly ult the farmers with considerable acreage of alfatfu use a slip or sled about eight by 14 feet and a single «ling of rope or light chain. By this method the heavy labor of lifting the hay onto a big load 1» all saved uud the work greatly dispatched, llaudliug Is saved with a resultant saving in foliage and labor, slips hustle to the stack, the loud ts hoisted by a derrick, and In a jlffv the sling released, the load dropped and the »Up Is back for another load. From 25 to 50 per cent of the labor bill is saved In this way. One question, too, whether all the fussing we do In raking and cocking our hay Is realty necessary. Else where it has been dispensed with.The common rake, or the side delivery is used, much fussing prevented, while the hay seems to be cured just as well. At least so they do In Twin Falls,and In Colorado us well. The same methods applied here /would save a big labor bill, and every far mer might well consider this. The l I all Never Neglect a Cold. A chill after bathing, cooling off suddenly after exercise and drafts, give the cold germs a foot hold that may lead to something worse. Safety requires early rteatment. Keep Dr. King's New Discover)' on hand. This pleasant balsam remedy allays in flammation. soothes the cough ami repairs the tissues. Better he safe than sorry. Break up the cold with Dr. King's New Discovery before It is too late. At your druggist, 50c, $ 1 . 00 . CHRISTIAN CHURCH NEWS. W. L. and Mr*. Straub attended the cream social at J. H.
