Will it pay any citizen of the district to do it? apless you believe that public schools are a detriment and would have a drive people out of the community. But, you know better than to school in an jless cedency to You know that public schools are the first thing a father considers when ■doting for a location, and that any desirable citizen will prefer a farm in a dis Kctwith first-class public schools. Now, don't permit a few dirty old dollars additional taxes to scare you into voting against the most important improve proposed in this community. Vote for bonds. See that your does the same thing. Make it your business to see that the bonds it. lent ever eighbor Don't be a knocker. L.P. Wallner: "We pay some $400 I year in taxes, and regaidless of any Lease I want to see the district vote Lt bonds It will increase the pop ilationof the town, make property, L ;own and farms, more valuable, y provide the children of the district L suitable educational advantages. I cannot see how anyone can vote Lainst bonds. '" "While I Uncle Josh Lanphear: ve no : the best school we can have.

They provide for a six room building, two stories with a basement, so arraged that at any lime, with out loss or damage, two ad ditional rooms can be added. The plan provides for wide halls, large stairs, cloak rooms, and library; also used as a principal's room, and four rooms 27x32 and two rooms 24x32 This will accommodate 336 pupils. Front and rear entrances are provided, and a very comfortable and pretty building planned. The estimated cost is placed at between $9000 and $9500, with $1400 for a heating plant, which can be installed at any time. During' the past year the district has been compelled to provide room out side the school house, paying $10 a month for the Christian church, and as much more for a janitor. As the pop ulation is sure to grow, even this arrangement will not meet the require ments of the district long. This ought to be considered and have some weight. It is proof that the time is near when a larger and better house will have to be built regardless of what some may like or desire. We may postpone but we cannot long evade the necessity. Why not, then, do it now? » The News would call attention to at least one fact that every resident of the district ought to consider before voting against bonds tomorrow. It will have to be admitted that the present build ing regardless of what we may do, will soon have to be rebuilt. It may serve a year or two, but it can serve as a school house very little longer. Rick ety as it is, time and storm will not be long in forcing the district to build re gardless of what anyone may think. A good hard wind would forever settle the question. And if the district must soon build why not do it now. Why not do something before fire or wind compels us to act? Another fact to consider is the in fluence a new school house would have upon property values. One prominent citizen of the district said; "A good school house would increase the value In case I should want of my home, to sell the matter of a good public school would make it easier to find buyer. I want to see the district put decent building." up a —O The News has not room to quote the many prominent citizens who have ex pressed a desire favorable to the bond , but suffice it to say that there practically no opposition, outside the extreme south end of the district. ; issue Good schools will not only increase the town every piece of property in I and district but increase the popula It will therefore help It will tion of Troy. 1 every business in the town, j mean more customers for our merchants, for the butcher, and for the products This is more patrons more consumers the farms adjoining town, hot air.

Heyburn Tells Why He Excluded Idaho. Washington, D. C., Mar. 23.—"Why did you move to amend the Smoot en- i larged homestead bill by striking Idaho from the prevision?" inquired a cor- ; respondent of Senator Heyburn. "For several reasons," replied the [ Idaho Senator. "In the first place, 1 1 do not favor the holding of 320 acres ! by one homesteader when lands so taken up may in the future be avail able for settlement under the Carey act. Then, I had secured the segre gation of 1,000,000 acres uÄder that act at this session and have secured another 1,000,000 acres under the ! same act. Then, again Idaho has 1 1.000,000 gallons of water available; for irrigation purposes when some of the other states in the arid region ( have it only by the cupful and then | not all the time, and, above all, I don't believe in being hasty in enacting legislation fqr the disposition of public j lands. If we had given such legisla- • lion more consideration in the pa$t, we would not how Iftive so much cause } for regret and many unpleasant things I would have been avoided." We are glad to see that Idaho has a j man at our national capitol that is ! actuated more for the good of the j public than for his individual cam paign forces. ! Advertised Letters. The following letters remain un- 1 claimed at Troy P. O., April 1, 1908: Mrs. Mattie Lee, Chas. Warneke, J. 1 T. Puckeff, Mrs. Minnie Davis, Mary 1 M. Best, John Budine, Mrs. David Hawkins, Prof. J. N. Helger (2), ' Johan J. Bakken (foreign). Say "ad vertised" when calling for same. Olof Olson, P. M. Postmaster Olson desires to call at- ! tention to the practice of some patrons of rural free delivery of placing loose coins in their boxes each time they de sire to dispatch letters instead of sup-, plying themselves with postage in ad ; vance of their needs. This practice imposes undue hardship on rural car riers in removing loose coins from boxes and delays them on the service 1 of their routes. The postmaster, there fore urgently requests that patrons of rural delivery provide themselves and keep onjhand a supply consistent with and in advance of their needs. Mr. Olson also keeps a supoly of stamped envelopes with the return card printed for each route. It is also very desirable j that rural patrons place in their mail boxes small detachable cups of wood or tin in which to place coins, when in purchasing supplies of I necessary, stamps.
