WE NOW HAVE BETTER LONG
DISTANCE SERVICE.
A decided protest went in to head
quarters against the rule that no
party to party calls could be made to
Boise over the long distance phone.
A change in the ruling has been
made, so that now you can talk to
any person in Boise for 15c. or 10c
for number calls. This is the same
as before and is satisfactory to the
public.
The rate to Nampa and
Kuna is reduced to the same as the
Boise call.

ELECTION OE DIRECTORS
A meeting was held in Meridian
Monday to plan a "protest" against
the removal of the Nampa & Merid
ian district office to Nampa. Only a
preliminary discussion was had at
this meeting An effort will be made
to secure'legislation so that one dis
tict may select and vote for their own
member on the board of directors.
As it is now Meridian can select a
representative to look after our inter
ests but Nampa and other parts of
the district could elect some one else.

HOME FROM NAVY SERVICE.
George Hardin, one of the directors
of the First National Bank of Merid
ian, has arrived home after several
months service In the coast guard
navy service as a yeoman. He joined
at Seattle. Going on the last trip, a
cargo was taken from a California
port through the Panama canal and
central America' and around to the
Norfolk navy yard, where he secured
his release from Uncle Sam's service.
The war being over Mr. Hardin was
naturally anxious to get back tq Idi
aho. He was employed as a yeoman,
with clerical duties and was assigned
for duty as clerk to the captain of the
new steel cargo transport, the "West
• CresSey." He talks entertainingly of
his work, one of the items of the
day's routine ,was preparing two cop
ies of the shiji's "log."This minutely
describes everything that happens on
board ship, including a statement of
the condition of the weather, the way
tiie engine, propeller, shaft, and each
part of the machinery is working, etc.
also any sickness among officers or
men—in fac.t a complete history of
fhe day is written out, and ends with
the number of miles travelled and
position of ship. One copy is for
warded when a port is reached, to
the chief navigation officer at Wash
ington, D. C., and the other is care
fully preserved in personal charge of
the captain
Mr. Hardin says the volunteers in the
navy are, most of them, ready to go
back to civilian life,
young boys, however, some with the
spirit of adventure not yet satisfied,
are recruiting for four years more.

CLEOPATRA SWEEPS COUNTRY!
Colossal Theda Kara Super-Product •
iou Is Turning Thousands iront
Crowded Theatres.
Gleopatra, in the person of Theda
Bara, presented in the sumptuous
film spectacle produced by William
Fox,continues her conquering career.
More than a million persons paid to
see "Cleopatra" during the long runs
of this Theda Bara Super-Production
in New York.
Reports from the road establish the
fact that "Cleopatra" is without peer
as a record-breaking business getter
in all communities and under all
kinds of conditions, and that it is act
ually turning thousands away. The
ope prime reason is that no other
woman in history or fiction is so cel
ebrated around the world. Hers was
the greatest, the most sensational
love story of all time. Another reason
is that this picture as it has been
truly called, is the "most sumptuous
production on earth.'"
Combine the name of Cleopatra
with the world-wide fame of .Theda
Bara as a screen creator of famous
characters, especially of the romantic
type and you have a double drawing
power guaranteed to fill any theatre.
The pomp and circumstance of
Egypt's Golden Age and "the grand
eur that was Rome"are pictured with
prodigal disegard of 'expense in
mounting and costuming the elabo
rate Beenes. Beyond compare is the
awe-inspiring portrayal of historic
incidents like the World's first naval
battle,the assassination of Caesar and
the deaths of Antony and Cleopatra.
No history drama in the annals of
pictures compares with "Cleopatra".

ANTONY* HAMMELRATH
RETURNS FROM CAMP LEWIS
Antony Hammelrath, of Meridian,
has returned from Camp Lewis.. He
says he would not take a great deal
for the experience and instruction re
ceived at the training camp. He says
it will make a man of anybody if there
is material to work on, as no boy can
stay at Camp Lewis, with such good
influence, without receiving great
benefit. He says many of the boys
were disappointed in not having the
chance to go over, and most of them
wnted the experience of actual war
fare after being trained as soldiers.
