McDonald, manager of the Potlatch Mercantile company's big department store Potlatch. This is one of the largest department stores in the west, carry ing an enormous stock of everything from needles to threshing machines, and saw mill supplies, and handles all of the supplies and provisions for the Potlatch Lumber company's big lumber interests, including two saw mills, among the largest in the west. But Mr. McDonald finds, or takes time to run a 320 acre ranch, and with the aid of Mrs. McDonald, milks 15 cows and feeds 100 head of hogs. His ranch is six miles from Potlatch and they arise early enough in the morning to milk the cows, separate the milk, feed the hogs apd do the other "chores" and get breakfast in time for him to get to the store, six miles* away, by 7:45 o'clock. He re mains at the store until closing time in. the evening, then drives the six miles to the ranch, milks the cows, separates the milk, feeds the hogs and looks after the other work on the ranch, then "calls it a full day" and retires for a few hours sleep. The skimmed milk is fed to the hogs and the cream is sold and brings in a nice check every month. Mr. and Mrs. McDonald are striv ing to do their part to produce more food stuffs rather than to make prof its and want to establish a fine dairy and stock farm. They call their farm the Glengarry Farm, which, with the name, certainly gives the impression that they are Scotch. But if there were any doubt left it would be re moved by inquiry into tne breeds of stock they keep. They will do their farm work with Shire horses. The fence corners and fields will be kept clean of weeds and foul growth by Shropshire sheep. They are laying the foundation for a fine herd of purebred Berkshire hogs, having 10 registered sows and a reg istered boar, and they have a fine herd of purebred, registered Guern sey cows.

Corner Drug Store Where Quality Counts BOLLES & LINDQUIST, Props. and there is such a demand for pork and dairy products, the work that Mr. and Mrs. McDonald are doing is of great value as a war measure. Mr. McDonald says they can keep 100 r «SSpf* r 3 I head of hogs with their 15 cows and the separated milk goes a long way toward feeding the swine. It requires an enormous amount of work to con duct this farm and look after the big store, but Mr. McDonald has the strength, the energy and the ambition to do it and is setting a fine example for others to follow.

PRESS PIUISES PRESIDENT U NEWSPAPERS OF AMERICA LAUD REPLY OF PRESIDENT TO GERMAN PEACE NOTE I Never has a president of the United States struck a more popular chord than did President Wilson by his dig nified yet firm rejection of Germany's offer to accept his terms for ending the war. Following are a few edi toriai comments from leading news papers on the president's reply: New York Tribune—Why in growing correspondence with Ger many is the word surrender tabooed Why is it that we can not talk as fight? * * * We are negotiating! with Germany toward an armistice— Does the American toward peace, government know the heart of the American people, and how it sinks each further expectation is so vaguely disappointed ? New York Herald (German)—The principal point in Mr. Wilson's note is * * * that part in which insists on a change of government Germany. * • * military party thinks to win by cam ouflage they are hopelessly mistaken. Washington Post —Humanity can not fail to applaud the decision taken by President Wilson in behalf of the United States and the allies and con veyed to the German government in manner that gains terrible signifi cance and finality by the restraint of the language employed. The note nothing less than a sentence of death upon the Hohenzollem military sys tem, pronounced by the spokesman of the civilized world, now in arms and actually executing the sentence. Voice of America. Now York Herald —The reply sent yesterday is the best possible proof that the* interlude, consisting of the president's questioning of the German impérial chancellor and that function ary's reply, was as unnecessary as it was futile. * * * If in any respect the president's reply seems inadequate to the American people it will be in the absence from it of any mention of reparation and punishment. Louisville Courier-Journal —Again the president has spoken with the voice of America and for the civilized nations of the earth. * answer of the president is an ultima tum to a defeated power. Its terms are so clear that only two courses lie open to the Germans—submission, which means present surrender; or resistance which means ultimate de struction. Chicago Tribune—The president's response to the German proposals rises inevitably from the logic of those noteworthy communications and addresses which have marked our controversy with the imperial German government. It expresses with force and unequivocally the conviction and purpose of the American people in this war, and will receive their un hesitating, undivided and enthusiastic approval. * If the German ♦ ♦ The Call of Patriots. Omaha Bee—President Wilson's re ply to the latest note from Berlin refers the question of armistice to the military authorities. While this probably means the war will go on, no doubt is left as to the sentiment of the American people. It is over whelming for unconditional surren der. The timid voice of the pro-Ger man pacifists, who favor accepting the proffer from the kaiser, is lost in the responding call of devoted pa triots for the prosecution of the war to a finish. Rocky Mountain News (Denver)— The nation will feel immensely re lieved that it has been freed for the time being of any association with the barbarian and if the people had their way they would much prefer that the allied governments have nothing to do with him until he is beaten down to his knees by force of arms. And now let the notes be as few as possible. Memphis (Tenn.) Commercial Ap peal— The German empire * * ♦ was born and it must die in the life time of William the Second. Presi dent Wilson has pronounced its death sentence. Buffalo (N.Y.) Courier—Once more President Wilson has shown diplo macy of the highest order. Baltimore Sun—The president's an swer leaves the door open to the German people, if they will kick out the kaiser, cease their atrocities and then accept such terms as the allied governments will grant. It invites peace, but only on those conditions. I I FREAK CALF RAISES MONEY FOR THE RED CROSS The double-headed twin calf born to a Jersey cow owned by E. J. Armbruster of Moscow is still alive. It sucks the cow with both mouths, taking two teats at a time, bawls with both mouths and sees with each of its four eyes. Mr. Armbruster has the calf in the barn at the family home in the outskirts of town and charges 25 cents admission to see it and gives the money to the Red Cross. He took in more than $5 yesterday. The calf seems to be grow ing weaker, and if dies it will be mounted and presented to the Red Cross, which will place it on exhibition at 25 cents for adults and 10 cents for school chil dren. ***************** * ♦ CONTRIBUTION BOX ♦ Editor Star-Mirror: It is not my purpose to discuss the method which the council of defense has used to get some of our citizens to take their quota of Liberty bonds. I simplv rise to say that inasmuch as that method has been used on some of our citizens, every fair-minded man will feel that the same method should be used with others j who have been as guilty or more so than, the parties who have already come into the lime light. A man with a half mil lion dollars who does not do his duty is even more guilty than a man with a few thousand. We will watch with interest developments of the next few days, H.

The day had been a most beautiful autumn day, with no indications of a storm brewing. About seven o'clock the thunder and lightning begun and increased in fury, with little rain, un til near 10 o'clock, when the storm reached its height. Hail preceded the heavy downpour of rain, which lasted for some time, with occasional showers until seven o'clock Monday morning. One might well have im agined the world had turned around and that Juliaetta was on the western front, that the constant rumbling of the thunder was the roar of the "great guns" and that the lightning was the "liquid fire," so constant was the rolling of the thunder and in cessant the flashing of the lightning for more than one hour. Today is so warm, sunny and calm, as to almost make one believe that the storm was only a dream, until a look at the muddy streets makes one know that the storm was a reality. Juliaetta Notes. All public gatherings except the public schools have been closed, but so far no cases of the influenza have been reported in Juliaetta.
