Few people knew that yesterday was
a legal holiday in Idaho. Governor
Alexander issued a proclamation de
claring it such, as soon as he learned
that the armistice had been signed and
the .war was over, but the te|egram
announcing the proclamation did not
. reach Moscow until late yesterday even
ing after The Star-Mirror had gone to
press and it was not made known until
today. But Moscow people made it a
holiday, whether legal or illegal, and they
certainly epjoyed it, even though they
had only half a holiday when they might
hav* had a full day. But they had part
of aMioliday last week when the United
S' fake report of the signing of the
armiahe was received, and are not com
The Ada county council 'showed its
determination to publicly denounce
Liberty loan slackers when it directed
publication of its citation and find
ings with regard to one A. F. Montan
don, a prominent and wealthy retired
business man of Boise. He has $1000
in all in Liberty bonds, taking $600 j
worth on the fourth issue The court- j
cil thought he should have taken $5000
worth and requested him to do so.
Montandon declined and refused to
appear before the council. 4 Instead he
wrote a letter in which he claimed the
right to take the amount of bonds his
own judgment dictated. The council
found him to be worth $132,750, with
an annual income of $12,000. Other
publications are to follow. Montan
don intimated to the council that the
war would be over some time and that
"he who laughs last laughs best." The
conclusions of the council are as fol
lows: "As a result of the foregoing
findings of fact, we conclude that
this citizen has not done his duty as
a citizen of this country, which has
permitted him to accumulate and pro
tected him in the accumulation of his
large fortune, and further find that he
should subscribe for the fourth Lib
erty loan bonds in the sum of $5000,
in addition to the $600 subscription
heretofore made by him, in order to
be on a par with the subscriptions of
the average citizen."
Charged with not doing his full
duty in support of war activities,
Henry Book was cited to appear be
fore the Idaho county council of de
fense. He is a native of Germany.
When questioned he said he did not
know the cause of the war and would
not encourage it. W'hen asked which
side would win, he replied the side
that was right. Most of his answers
were evasive. He said he doubted
whether the United States would be
able to redeem the Liberty bonds and
savings stamps. He was referred to
the federal authorities.
The big drive for Our Boys is on.
The people are responding to the call in
fine spirit. A large number of subscrip

tions are being received at the office of
the defense council on Second street, at
the office of Fred Veatch and at Max
Griffith's office in the Masonic temple
on South Main street. Subscriptions
will be received from anyone at any of
these places, but the public is asked to
subscribe as far as possible at the place
designated for the residents of each
voting precinct, which are as follows :
North and East Moscow, office of de
fense council.
West and Southwest Moscow, office of
Fred Veatch.
Southeast Moscow, office of Max

JULIAETTA.—The people of Juli
aetta gave vent to their joy in the
news of peace yesterday, by a most
enthusiastic demonstration. All the
bells of the town rang continuously
for six hours. Business houses were
closed. A parade was formed, and
speeches were made by prominent
citizens. All day the people were
finding new ways to express their
patriotism and joy. In the evening
a huge bonfire was built, around
which gathered several hundred citi
zens and people from the surrounding
country. Under the flags of the al
lied nations, an impromptu program
was rendered. The Reverend Mr.
Nelson, Mr. Columbus Clark, Mr. Earl
Crum, and Mr. E. W. Porter were the
principal speakers. The crowd joined
in singing patriotic songs. The
demonstration lasted far into the

Guy Penwell, the 16-year-old son of
Mr. and Mrs. R. G. Penwell, of South
Jackson street was severely burred
about the face and eyes last evening
about 9 o'clock by an explosion of
gun powder. A number of boys were
celebrating by-ramming charges in
piece of lead pips. When throwing
the match down some powder flared
up that bad been spilled on the pave
ment, the fuse caught fire and the ex
plosion happened while in the lad's
hands. The extent of the injury is
not yet known. Dr. Gritman treated
the burns. An eye specialist was sent

BOISE, Idaho, Nov. 12.—(Special
to The Star-Mirror.)—Cassia county,
in the southern district United War
Work Campaign, is the honor county
of Idaho—the first county across with
its quota and still going. Burley, with
a quota of sixty-five hundred raised
ten thousand the first day. Eleven
counties reported a total of forty-four
thousand for Monday's drive. State
Campaign Manager Richard E. Ran
dall urges workei'S throughout the
state to speed up. Idaho must be one
of the first states across. Don't let
the boys ''over there" think we have
forgotten them the instant they nave
won a glorious victory. Their need
of help is greater than ever. Keep
going. It is not over until they are
over here.

Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
Do not imagine that because other
cough medicines failed to give you
relief that it will be the same with
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. Bear
in mind that from a small beginning
this remedy has gained a world wide
reputation and immense sale,
medicine must have exceptional merit
to win esteem wherever it becomes
Shortage of Draft Horses.
There is a shortage of draft horses;
the real lack of good, heavy teams was
never so great as at the present time.
The eastern and southern states do not
produce enough draft horses to supply
their own demands, and the same is
true of the spates west of Nebraska. The
shortage of farm labor makes necessary
the use of heavier horses in order that
more work may be accomplished per
day with fewer men. On every well
managed farm enough colts should be
bred and reared to keep up the farm
stock so that one or more good teams
could be sold each year. Those who are
aware of the true situation and breed
their mares to the best stallions are
certain to profit greatly by producing
all the good draft horses they can.
Drafters of quality sold on the Chi
cago market recently at from $250 to
$325 each, but they must have quality.
*piiere never was a time when quality in
'draft horses was so essential.—Wm.

ducted in the interests of the seven
organizations approved by the war
department commission on training
camp activities. One of these is the
National Catholic War Council, repre
senting the Knights of Columbus.
"The purpose of this campaign is to
raise $170,500,000 in order to provide
adequate funds for the recreational
and moral welfare of our boys in the
service. It is vitally important that
all Catholics take an active part in
this United War Work campaign.
"Let us again remind you that men
and money are necessary to win the
war. In a way we are on the firing
line. It would be treason for any
Catholic to be inactive or indifferent
at this critical time. The souls of
our departed soldier hoys are appeal
ing to us, inviting our hearty coopera
tion. Their duty was no greater than
ours, yet thousands of them have
made the supreme sacrifice. All that
our government asks of us in the
present drive for the several organi
zations is that we 'lend as they fight.'
"This is not an appeal for Catholic
boys alone or for Catholic interests,
but R j s an appeal for all our brave
men fighting for peace and justice.
"Dear Brethren, I am calling your
attention, thru the clergy ' of the
diocese, to this approaching appeal

be prepared to give it your enthusi
