WILLIAMSON'S ARE BUSY!
AND NO WONDER
For a total disregard for cost or value the great Store assumes and is doing. 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.

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.

he took off again under black clouds
which hung as low as 600 feet and
with a strong south wind along the
ground. He climbed to 300 feet and
there found clear air and a brisk
north wind. Corn husks blown from
the ground followed him and birds
carried by this wind flew above him
at 5000 feet, an unusual altitude for
them. He finished his 1700 mile flight
at 3:30 in the afternoon, it having
taken him since 6:30 in the morning
to fly from Fort Worth, a distance
of some 295 miles.
