Highway Defeats Bonds. The proposition to bond the North Highw'ay district in this county in the sum of $100,000 for the improvement of the roads of that district fell ten votes short of the required two-thirds major ity, in the election held last Tuesday. The voting took place at the Steele and at the Sunset school houses, the form er precinct showing 50 for and 2 against the proposition, and the latter 64 for and 69 against—a total of 114 for bonds and 71 opposed thereto. The large vote polled was indicative of the general interest in the matter of im proved highways in the district, and the failure of the bonds to carry is largely attributed to the fact that no definite plan of improvement or con struction had been agreed upon.

NEZPERCE TAKES FAST ONE FROM FERDINAND -4-2. The fans certainly got their money's worth at Ferdinand Sunday in the League game between the nine of that live little burg and the Nezperce buiuh. Though the weather was a trifle threatening for base ball, it held up disagreeable interference seemingly in respectful consideration for the close, fast game in progress there. It was largely a pitcher's battle, though the in and out field now and then got a chance to how its qualify or weak spots. Possibly the prairies never wit nessed a diamond contest freer from 1 anything of a marring nature—'the misfortune of Moser, the Nezperce first-baseman, in badly spraining his ankle in an attempt to steal second, being about the only thing to disrupt the even tenor of the day 's sport. Hollen's clever work in the box for Nezperce was again the feature of the game, the Ferdinanders only getting three hits off of him up to the ninth inning. Then the big climax came. In the last half of the ninth, Ferdinand sent one man around and filled the buses, with only one out. The score was 2 to 4. It was one of those tense moments when the crowd grows noise less and everyone stands on the tip toe of expectancy. Hollen tightened, and the next two batters never found the leather. Another feature worthy of special mention was the butting of Hugo Med ved for Nezperce, he taking two doub les and a single for his share, Nezperce sent over a dozen cars of rooters with her team, and there w mid have been that many more, but. for Ihe rainy prospect.

Comfort, Alpine and at the Geo. Rowe ranch in the Mt. Vale district during the past week be sides giving seven demonstrations to individual farmers. The advantage of working cooperatively in this w'ork is seen when it is noted that over 80 farmers were served by the five public demonstrations while only 10 farmers were served in the seven private demonstrations given. If you have hoppers better arange for a community hoppers better arrange for a commun ity mixing bee. Mr. and Mrs. AV. K.

Commander Read and Crew Safely Pilot Naval Sea-Plane from Long Island, N. Y., to Lisbon, Portugal. Washington, May 27.—Blazing the way of the first air trail from the western to the eastern hemisphere, the United States navy seaplane NC-4, under Lieutenant. Commander Albert Cushing Read, swept into the harbor of Lisbon, Portugal, today, the first airship of any kind to have c .ossed the Atlantic ocean under its own power and through its natural element. Taking the air at Ponta del Oada, Azores, nt 6:18 a. m., Washington time, on the Inst leg of the transoceanic portion of the voyage from Rockaway Bench, Long Island, to Plymouth, England, the NC-4 covered the 800 miles in 9 hours, 43 minutes, maintain ing an average speed of better thur. 8Q knots an hour. The total elapse« flying time from New Foundland to Lisbon was 26 hours and 41 minutes. At) he first opportunity the big plane will continue to Plymouth, 775 nautical miles to the north. Possibly Commander Read can start tomorrow. To Ihe navy department, however, it. makes little difference when he com pletes the journey. The great object of all the effort lavished on the under taking—(navigation of a seaplane across the Atlantic through the air— has been accomplished. Twentieth century transportation has reached a new pinnacle and the United States navy has led the way. Naval officials emphasized that the long delay at the Azores was owing to the weather and to ho weakness of the machine or its daring crew, nor to any failure of the carefully laid plans of the department to guide the fliers to their dcstinnlponi, The fourteen de stroyers strung from Ponta del Oada to Lisbon reported with machine-like precision today ns the flight, progress ed. The plane was never off its course and there was no moment when offic ials in Washington did not know within a few miles whore it was in the air. Commander Read had with him cn the flight to Lisbon the same crew as left Now Foundland on the NC-4 May 16. Lieutenants E. F. Stone, of the. const guard, and W. K. Hinton were the pilots with Ensign R. C. Rodd as radio operator, and Chief Machinists' Mate E. S. Rhodes as reserve engineer. Enthusiasm in Portugal. Lisbon, May 27.—The achievement of the first trans-Atlantic air flight, with Lisbon as the first European stopping point, has aroused the en thusiasm of the Portuguese ns no event has stirred them for many years. When the • American seaplane came over the Tagus river this even ing the populace, crowding all places of vantage, gave full expression to this enthusiasm by cheers of welcome, the booming of guns and fhç ringing of bolls. Early in the day word was flushed that the NC-4 had started and nt in tervals there were bulletins of the progress made. The whole city was en fete and during the latter hours vir tually all business was abandoned by those who crowded everywhere to wit ness the arrival. Guided by skillful hands the Ameri can plane, which had covered the dis tance between the protecting destroy ers along thq route wi((h .clock-like regularity, swept in over Lisbon and settled down gracefully near the cruis er Rochester. It was not forgotten by many of those who witnessed the triumph that another man equally stout hearted, the Australian, Hawker, was being welcomed in England oit his return, from a wonderful trans-Atlantic flight, more spectacular, but not so success ful, and there was praise for both. NC-4 City Council Reorganizes. Charles T. Berry is now mayor of our little city, he having been elected to this position at a recent meeting of the city fathers. At the same time Chas. H. Nugent was reappointed city clerk, A. AV. Mitchell city treasurer and Alanson Farmer city marshal, and the latter's salary was fixed at $100 per month. Ex-Mayor Stoufer having foiled ;o qualify after having been re-elected as a member of the board, Nick Luier was appointed to fill the vacancy. Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Moreland, of the Saskatchewan, Can., country, ar rived here Saturday for a visit at tho home of his brother, J. AA r . Moreland, of this vicinity, and to look over the prairie with a view of probably locat ing here. Mrs. Henry Brallier, of Sunnyside, AVash., came in last week for a visit with Nezperce friends.
