Williamson will not linger; he will not haggle over lucre. Close this insti tution at the earliest possible moment—cost what it may. He can sell in bulk to be shipped out of town any minute. He has given you a final warning that December 15th is the last day for you to fill your present and future wants—in other words, his letter to you of November 12th promised you he would not sell these stocks in bulk before December 15th. We appreciate where you who have winter needs would be placed should this Store with these still great stocks of merchandise close its doors on you in a minute's warning. We may not on December 15th close to you; but, understand and mark our words, that*on that day Williamson's conscience will be clear to do what he thinks best. This Store in its entirety has issued new price lists throughout, and still further general reductions on everything. You are offered a chance, but bear in mind Williamson never did beg you to buy of him. You can save a lot of money if you take his advise.

BELIEVE LATAH COUNTY HAS QUOTA TROY FELL DOWN HARD BUT OTHER DISTRICTS OVERSUB SCRIBED THEIR SHARE It is 'believed that Latah county's quota of $22,000 for the united war fund has been raised. All of the figures are not in yet, but enough precincts have reported to make it quite certain that the full share for this couhty has been subscribed. It is said that Troy only gave about $700 of her quota of $2,000 but sev eral other points in the county gave more than their quota. Moscow was "over the top" last night, but just how much is not known. Moscow had a quota of about $10,000, or nearly as much as all of the remainder of the county. It is believed that the total fixed for the nation, $170,500,000, has been over subscribed. It was hoped the sub scriptions would reach $250,000,000 and this vast sum may be reached. Genesee. Moscow and Potlatch are known to have oversubscribed their quotas. Troy is badly handicapped by an epidemic of the "flu" and a meeting of the business men is to be held to take action to raise the amount assessed against the town. Every precinct that has not raised its full quota is urged to continue work until the amount is raised. I SAN FRANCISCO.—Typical of the experiences of United States aviators, whose field-to-field flights in the central and eastern part of the country are expected to make up an interesting chapter in the history of American aviation, is that of Captain F. M. Bartlett who flew from Fort Scott, Ill., to Kelly Field, Texas, 1700 New Books at the Library. Here is a list of some new books that are now placed in our public library: "Rebirth of Russia," by Marcos son; "Best Russian Short Stories," by Seltzer; "Pillars of Society," by Gar diner; "Days Out," by Woodbridge; "Christine," by Choemondley; "Non sense Books," by Lear; "Camp-fire Girls," (last edition) by Paper; "In Sunny Spain," by Bates; " Age," by Grahame; "Lisbeth Long frock," by Aanrud.

BART LETT FROM FORT SCOTT TO KELLY FIELD army miles, through sunshine and storm. This story of Captain Bartlett's difficult flight is given by the United States committee on public informa tion: "He covered the 341 miles between Bellville and Clark field, Memphis, •Tenessee, in 3 hours and 5 minutes at an average speed of 110 miles an hour favored by a stiff wind from the Great Lakes and at an altitude of between 7000 and 9000 feet. On the second leg of the trip between Memphis, Ten nessee, and Payne Field, West Point, Mississippi, wishing to stop for lunch, he descended and was close to the ground over an abandoned race track when he suÏÏdenly found the air so thin he knew he could not get off this ground once he landed. He had difficulty in getting back to the up per currents again but by following a flock of birds which flew in an as cending circle, he secured enough alti tude to continue. Approaching West Point fine air was again encountered but over this town he ran into an electrical storm and was forced to descend. With clear weather the next day he made 230 miles between West Point and Lonoke, Arkansas, without a stop though his gasoline gave out just as he arrived over Eberts Field, near this point, and Little Rock, Arkansas. Here bad weather held him up four days. Four hundred and fifty miles of the next ! 'g between Eberts Field and Post F!

From the Falls Cap tain Bartlett again failed to make Fort Worth on the day following, running into a stiff gale which held his ground speed down to 25 miles an hour and he landed in the dust at Bridgeport, just short of his destina tion. The next day he made Fort Worth without trouble but, leaving this post at 6:30 a. m., he encountered a heavy storm and was again forced to land at Waco. Waiting for the storm to pass PUBLIC SALE!

He climbed to 300 feet and there found clear air and a brisk north wind.
