October 24, and the Idaho Post of

Mr. Estes agrees to reappoint Mr.

! cept the appointment, was evidently
| calculated to create the impression
among voters that the election of the
'republican candidates for auditor and
probate judge would mean a greater
i saving of money tothe county than!
i would result from the election of the
democratic candidates for thess of-j
fices, I deem it proper to make the
1 following statement;
I agree that if elected probate judge
at the coming election I shall be ready
and willing to perform the duties of
deputy clerk of the district court in
addition. Mr. W. E Heard, demo
cratic candidate for auditor and clerk
of the district court has agreed that
if he also is elected he will appoint
me deputy clerk of the district court.'
If Mr. Estes and I are elected it Wili
be up to him whether he will appointl
me and continue the saving.
The fact that I have been a public
school principal for years and have
been admitted to practice law in the
supreme court of the state of Idaho,
I offer as evidence of my ability to
[perform the duties of clerk of^the
court as well as those of probate
judge.
I shall claim no particular merit
for accepting both offices if elected.
Since one man can do the work, why
pay two for it? I believe any patri
otic citizen, either democratic
publican, would do the same as
ter of course. Furthermore, if elect
ed, I shall not fill the newspapers
with glowing accounts of the great
saving I am making for the taxpayers.
If any credit is due for the consoli
Ration of the two offices, it is to the
board of county commissioners, and
not to the present probate judge. In
hls case R is merely a matter of per
forming the duties of two offices for
more pay than he got as deputy clerk

Camp Wadsworth, Spartanburg, S.
I 0.—Among the Maryland draft men
sent here some weeks ago was a chap
from Baltimore who claimed exemp
tion from military service on the
' ground that he was a conscientious ob
jector of war. His name will not be
made public, for It has developed that
he belongs to a good family. He was
placed in the casual detachment for ob
servation, and the machinery of the In
telligence department was put to work
to learn something as to his antece
dents.
, . . , , , ,, , .
A few days later a tall, grim-look

where the conscientious objector could

He was directed to the

Scientist in His Home at

Paris.—Dr. Alexis Carrel of the
Rockefeller Institute for Medical Re
search of New York was recently seek
ing a building at Saint Cloud suitable
for a laboratory and workshop near
certain hospital centers. He found' the
house he wanted In a park full of
splendid trees. The "Verger" (Or
chard), as the property was called, be
longed to Andre Bernheim, who had
refused the most tempting offers to
rent it on account of the family sou
venirs it contained and the art treas
ures.
When Mr. Bemhelm heard of Doc
tor Carrel's wish to lease his house he
said: "Tell Doctor Caryel that-1 am
greatly flattered at his choice and that
the Verger and its surroundings are at
his service."
When the question of rent was
raised Mr. Bernheim exclaimed: "No,
no, a scientist owes nothing to any
body. It is I who am honored."

Paris.—Stenographers may win the
war. At least the last battle of the
Marne which turned the tide against
Germany was won by stenographers,
reasoning along the same lines as were
made famous by the celebrated reci
tal to the effect that "a throne was lost
all for the lack of a horseshoe nail."
For if the French say the American
soldiers saved Paris, and the Ameri
can soldiers say the big war welfare
organizations saved them with hot
chocolate and other supplies when the
commissary couldn't keep up with the
moving troops, the welfare organiza
tions have said more than once that
the girl clerical workers have more
than once saved the situation.
"I sometlmeu think that this war Is
going to be won by the stenographers,"
is the view of Miss McCook, head of
the women's department In Paris.

used as shields behind which German
machine gunners opposed the Ameri

"They got behind these old up*
turned tanks, a number of which I
saw, and tried to hold us up after we
ciossed the Vesle," $aid Thurver.
"But, of course, it was only a ques
tion of time until we worked our way
around them and then the German
machine gunners decided they were
through with the war. They invaria
bly surrendered."
Thurver was shot in the chest and
arm from a machine gun behind one
of the tanks.
