A Meridian man says they may talk
a good deal about Job and his pat

having a prune orchard that failed
for three years in succession.
The fate of the country is now in
the hands of a republican congress
after eight years of democratic effort
to run the nation in a democratic
party way when the sentiment of the
nation is normally republican.
President Wilson recommends to
congress that the railroads be re
turned to private management. But
it is hinted that the president was
aware that congress would take the
action anyway, whether it was sug
gested by him or not.
The Centenary campaign for funds,
for extension work at home and
abroad, of the M. E. church, comes
to a close Saturday. The Meridian
church has raised her full quota and
a good healthy margin to spare and
is therefore on the honor roll.

A great effort was made this week
to cross the ocean with aeroplanes.
Three of the American machines met
with misfortune but the N-C 4 will
try a start to-day on the last part of
the trip—from the Azores to Spain,
then to England. A British plane
met a tragic fate after leaving New
foundland and the airman and pilot
were probably drowned.
Anyone needing help on the farm
should telephone E. H. Hasbrouck,
examiner, U. S. Department of Labor
employment service, telephone 1463,
or call at 801 Bannock street, Boise.
A number of returned soldier boys
are on the list.
President Wilson recommends in a
message to the new (republican)
congress that the war time prohibi
tion of the manufacture of wine and
beer be repealed. The message is
cabled from Paris. Temperance
people are not pleased with his rec
ommendation and it is said that con
gress will not comply. William J.
Bryan, says this is practically mak
ing the democratic party the cham
pion of the saloon in its last hours.
We don't know which Mr. Bryan re
fers to in speaking of "last hours"
but suppose he refers to the saloon
and not-the democratic party.
