NO. 28. MERIDIAN', ADA COUNTY, IDAHO, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 1919. VOLUME XI. GETS $8,000 FOR KEEPING LAND FOR SIX MONTHS will vert Mr and Mrs Frank E. Shay, who came out last spring from Pennsyl vania ana bought the James Robison 80 acres two miles south of Pfost station, left this week for the coast. They will later go to Los Angeles.but will probably return to Idaho next spring. Mr. Shay bought the Robison farm for $10,000 and sold for $16,000 with crop. As the crop was valued at $2,000 he cleaned up at least $3,000 for his summer's invest ment. This is pretty good, but is the same as many have done this season. We in air! d cept UNIQUE EQUIPMENT USED IN BIG PLAY low of a America's leading player—Guy Bates Post; the most celebrated play of the decade "The Masquerader"— these comprise a combination never before equalled in theatricals in Boise. The engagement will begin Monday, Nov. 17th, and last two days at the Plnney theatre. This much talked about season's best offering— with the original cast and production, revolving stages, triple electrical equipment, thematic music, and nine ponderous, pulsating scenes, is commented on by a leading critic of Boston to the extent of two columns. Among other things he says:- "Guy Bates Post kept a capacity audience thrilling in response to the clever un folding of the story of the substitu tion of John Loder for his cousin, the dissolute John Chilcote, at a time when England stood sorely in neec of the brilliant statesman, who had become a hopeless drug addict. The duel role of Mr. Post presents the best character study ever seen, on a Boston stage." » the ed ber. in a In MERIDIAN M. K.
