PHELPS, and Family. use THE DAIL> STAR MIRROR MOSCOW IDAHO, THURSDAY. OCTOBER 24, I That the arrangement by which Adrian Nelson has acted as probate judge and clerk of the district court since April, , , , , . , 1917, by which the salary of one official was saved to the tax payers of the coun ty will be continued, is assured by the statement of the republican county plat form to which both Judge Nelson and I Homer Estes, county auditor and clerk of the district court have subscribed, I The following plank from the republican I platform is here reproduced. "We heartily commend the action of the board of county commissioners of Latah county in appointing Adrian Nel son to the office of probate judge and thereby consolidating the office of the carry out its provisions. I One of the most scathing letters writ ten by a democrat against the democratic candidate for congress in this district, who is opposing Burton L. French, of Moscow, is that written by Frank liar ris, a pioneer attorney and leading demo crat of Weiser, the home of I. 1. Purcell, nonpartizan candidate for congress on the democratic ticket. From the Weiser American, a real newspaper, printed in Mr. Purcell's home town, we take the following which should be read by every voter of Latah county. The article foi lows : j "A number of local democrats with a : history for being democrats recently re ceived letters from the democratic con gressional committee asking them to form a Purcell club in Weiser. So far as known they all respectfully declined stating their reasons. Some of these rea sons are quite plainly stated in a letter written to the chairman of the commit tee by Frank Harris, Weiser's well known citizen and pioneer attorney. The letter follows ; "Hon. Scott Ferris, ■'Washington, D. C. "Dear Sir ; I, have your surprising request of the 25th of last month, by which I am requested to assist in the organization of a 'Purcell for Congress Club.' To me this is an astounding 1 proposition. T know Purcell. He lives I here in Weiser, where he has been rttn ; ». in f a republican newspaper for the last eight years and at the last two elections I was a defeated republican candidate for state senator. He was up to two weeks prior to his nomination as a democratic candidate, a member of the republican platform committee, and helped write the platform the republican candidates of this state stand on in this election. "He is a sorehead, because of his de feat above mentioned, and thinking that he saw a chance to get into office by following that socialist, Townley. and securing a nomination through fraud, he for the time quit his old alliance and is now styling himself a 'Wilson democrat.' "He is certainly a fine specimen to ask an old line democrat who has stood by the party through all the years of adversity and defeat,, to support. No. you have another guess coming. The first one you missed a mile when you guessed that I or any other loyal friend of the President and our great party would be instrumental in electing a man to congress whose nomination was se cured through fraud. I "This man Purcell is a follower of Townley, who is no better friend to our great government than is Lenine or T rotsky to poor distracted Russia. Townley is a socialist, a supporter of the principles expressed in the last plat form of his party, which, as you know, is treason, pure and simple. Arthur LeSeuer, an associate and friend of Debs and Haywood, is the secretary of the non-partisan league, and if the lead ers in that unpatriotic organization were not against this government and heart LATAH SHOWS LABOR SHORTAGE That there is a great shortage of labor for farm work in Latah county is shown by the survey of conditions in this county made by O.* S. Fletcher, county agent, working with the coun Mr. Fletcher has ty farm bureau, made his report which shows all con ditions concerning the crop nroduc ticn problem in tins county. It fol lows: The Latah County Farm Bureau has completed the fai m labor survey of this county which was started some time ago. O. S. Fletcher, county ag ricultural agent, has just finished tab ulating the results of the survey. Practically every community in the county has been covered- However, not all farms are included. This is due either to the fact that the local committeemen of the farm bureau did not get time to call on every farmer in their districts, or to the farmers not being at home when the commit teemen called. The survey covered 675 farms, with a total of 154,325 acres. Of this land, 120,918 acres are in cultivation. Crop Situation. The total acreage in crops this year was 103,325 acres. Of this land, 12,831 acres were in alfalfa, timothy, or other similar crop cut for hay. Next year it is expected that 99,203 of probate judge at a saving to the tax payers of more than one thousand dol £ rs P er anm, ™>. an<1 if f.' ected > Corner h, Estes. republican candidate for clerk 0 f fli s t r j c t court and ex-officio au ditor and recorder pledges himself in the event of Adrian Nelson's election to the office of probate judge to reappoint him to the office of deputy clerk of the district court in order that the same eco nomical administration may be continued as that which now exists, and if elected, Adrian Nelson, republican candidate for probate judge, pledges himself that he will continue to perform the duties of the two offices for the next two years." To the foregoing statement we give our full approval and pledge ourselves and soul with Debs and Haywood in their unprincipled propaganda in this, the saddest hour of our nation's life, they would not associate with this arch traitor for a second, "I have lived in Idaho for nearly forty years and know the history of Haywood and his bloody gang. I knew the late Governor Steunenberg, whom Hay wood's organization murdered, and know that there was a miscarriage of justice when this demon was not hanged for the crime when he was tried here a few years ago. Now comes the pitiable spectacle, here in Idaho, where the blood of Governor Steunenberg was spilled, of an organiza tion created and officered by the friends and apologists of his*murderers, stealing the machinery of the party of our great president, setting up candidates, not democrats, and asking the support of decent people. These are the facts and damned be the man or men who will dispute them. "I am now growing old, and .as the years creep on f become the more soli eitons for our country's good, and cast my vote accordingly, hence my reason for declining your astounding proposi tion. .Why is it that you say nothing about the organization of a 'Moore for Senator Club?' Hon. Frank Moore, of Moscow, is the regular democratic can didate for senator against W. E. Borah, who has the indorcement of the Idaho Bolshevik! who manipulated the nomina tion of the man Purcell, of whom you speak. All the followers of Townley, LeSeuer & Co., including Purcell and his fellow Bolsheviki candidates are going to support Borah and knife the patriotic democratic Moore. A fine com himUion to contemplate is this. "Dr. W. R. Hamilton, of this place, late chairman of the state democratic central committee, informs me that lie got a letter of the same import as that I am now answering, and informs me that his answer thereto, will not encour age you much in the organization of 'Purcell for Congress Clubs,' and Lean assure you that he speaks the sentiments of thousands of loyal democrats who intend to work and vote for Gooding, republican, and Moore, democrat, for senators, and French for representative. "I have two boys over in France, of whom I am intensely proud. They both volunteered within a month after the declaration of war, and I will not assist any candidate put forth by an organiza tion who would see them murdered for doing their patriotic duty. "I take it that you are not fully in formed as to conditions in Idaho, else you 'would not he making such an ap peal to democrats, and I hope that you will seek and receive information that will put j'ou right to the end that the efforts of your committee to elect Pur cell or any other Townleyite to coll gress may cease. "Truly yours, "FRANK HARRIS. acres will be in crop, 11,425 acres of j which will be hay crops. (These fig ures do not include grains cut for I hay.) This year 17,593 acres were ! summer-fallowed, while it is expected , that 21,715 acres will be summer-fal lowed next year. Labor Situation. On the farms covered by the survey there are 570 able-bodied men of draft age, and 286 able-bodied men or boys over sixteen years of age, and not of draft age. This gives a total of 866 able-bodied men and boys liv ing on these farms. The survey shows that a total of 861 men are ordinarily used the year around- on these farms, and that 924 year around men are necessary to keep the farms up to maximum production. These figures show that there is a shortage of year around men at present. These figures do not consider the extra men needed for the planting and harvesting sea sons. The number of these extra men that are needed is as follows: 23 dur ing March, 193 during April, 171 dur ing May, 139 during June, 410 during July, 808 during August, 533 during September, 74 during October, and a few during November. Only two men reported land as idle | the present year for lack of farm j help.

It attacks all classes, re gardless of age, sex or conditions. A majority of the ills afflicting people today can be traced back to the kidney trouble.

Kidney disease is usually indicated by weariness, sleeplessness, nervous ness, despondency, backache, stomach trouble, difficulty when urinating, pain in loins and lower abdomen, gall stones, gravel, rheumatism, sciatica and lumbago.
