Mr. and Mrs. Still-1 He had been on the inger of Moscow. fighting front for weeks, in the midst of the fiercest fighting during the clos ing days of the war. He had seen his companions shot down at liis side. He sights that made his heart sick, but he continued at his work and fired the last shot at the Huns just as the clock struck 11 on the 11th day of had seen r, when the the 11th month of the Huns laid down their arms and quit. During all of this fighting, when eve ry minute might be his last, be did not write to his parents and friends where he was. Tf he was to die he would die as an American, doing his duty, and would save his parents and friends the worry he knew they would endure had they known of bis peril. When he came through alive and unwounded and the danger was all over, he wrote his par ents and told them where be bad been and what he had seen. "We may go to Germany as part of the army of occupation." he wrote, "but T don't care to go. We are through and I am ready to go home. 1 have seen enough." Isn't that typically American? The Huns could not win against a spirit Eke that—a spirit that thought of-Others first, but did its duty quietly and well and when that duty was done, wished to return to the peaceful pursuits and the quiet life of peace times. It is that spir-I it manifested by 2,O0O,(X)n of the very flower of young American manhood that brought the war to 'an end one year before the English and French be lieved it could he ended. It is the true American spirit. ^ h R) PLAY FAIR. ft has repeatedly come to our atten tion that some organizations are con ducted on a rather peculiar plan so far as their attitude toward the press is con cerned. Before a meeting the notices arc num erous. There seems to be no end to the quantity of free advertising that seems desirable. When the more or less important meeting or other event is over, however, nobody goes an inch out of his way to notify the press of what was done. The free advertising notices are not fol lowed by compensating notices of "what was doing," and tin's system is very un fair. Thc press, which gives freely of its space to boost organization is surely entitled to consideration after the boosting period is deemed past and tbe news period commences. — Kootenai Valley Times. fpr- fen CUT COST OF WHEAT TRANS PORTING. By utilizing a logging railroad to transport wheat the county agent of Wallowa county, Oregon, brought about a saving of between $8000 and $9000 to tbe farmers in one section of tin county. Attention of the state public service commission was called to tin fact that the logging railroad, by han dling (he wheat could save farmers a considerable part of the trouble and ex pense of a 40-mile haul to a railroad station. Upon the recommendation of the commission the logging railway hauled 90,000 bushels of wheat, which was mov ed at about one-half the cost of hauling in the usual way.—Orofino Tribune. Ri Ik h The people of Moscow and a 1 ) of La tah country certainly have a "kick com ing" on the new time card of the Washington, Idaho & Montana railroad. The train now leaves Palouse a short time before the arrival of the first train from the south, and then stops at Potlatch two hours. If one wants to reach Potlatch or Bovill from Moscow, "Genesee, Kendrick. Troy or Jnliaetta one must drive from Palouse to Pot latch or remain in Palouse over night, spending about 23 hours there if one leaves here on the 10:45 train. As a result no one from south of Palouse visits any town on the W., I. & M. rail If the train, road if it can be avoided. spent at Palouse for the would spend part of the two hours in Potlatch waiting north-bound Northern Pa ci ft; train ji would be a great accommodation to Un people of a large part of Latah county.

In the Uni ted States the result of a presidential election is frequently known by mid night following the election, and it is infrequent that the result is in doubt longer than 24 hours after the polls arc closed. Just imagine, if you can, the American people waiting two weeks to learn the result of an election. IB- fe Is Senator Borah deliberately playing the role of the bad boy of the senate in offering a resolution to require the senate to publish the peace treaties im mediately and open wide the doors to all debates upon them?

When the soldier boys, the boys of the glorious Ninety-First, the Idaho boys, return the man who has bought his share of Liberty bonds, war savings and thrift stamps and has contributed his share to tbe Red Cross can meet them and shake hands with them and not feel ashamed. He will know that while the boys have been doing their duty on the battle field or elsewhere, he has done bis. But bow about the man who is a slacker in any one of these? How will he feel when he meets the boys? »m He Kaiser Bill has been ordered out of Holland and refuses to go. He claims no place to go. He is mistaken.
