ASSISTANT SECRETARY OF AG III -
CULTFRE WILL VISIT MOSCOW

That the people of Latah county may
look forward to a great intellectual
treat during the week of February 4-7
is the statement of W. Kjosness, assist
ant" county agent leader for the ten
north Idaho counties. Mr. Kjosness,
who is actively engaged in promoting
the success of Farmers' and House
keepers' week, says that no more at
tractive feature has ever been arrang
ed for than the appearance of A. J.
Christie, assistant secretary of agri
culture. Mr. Christie has been urgent
ly invited to be the chief speaker on
the program, and there is every expect
ation that the people who attend the
sessions of the farmers' week will have
the opportunity of hearing this famous,'
Mr. Kjosness states that Mr. Christie
is famous throughout the country as a
forceful speaker on agricultural topics.
He has made an enviable reputation
on the Cimutauqua platform, and is a
person of broad thought and plain,
practical common sense ideas.
"I look for a record-breaking attend
ance at the Farmery' and Housekeep
ers' week meetingé," stated Mr. Kjos
"The chief topics under con
eideration will be' the after-the-war
problems of the people who live on i
the farms. In my opinion the most im

Teach the Children How
to Care for Their Teeth
It is an easy matter to impress children with the value of
certain habits '"which have to do with health.

"I think there will be greater dif
ficulty than ever in securing desir
able labor. Paternalism with regard
to the returned soldier Is, I feel sure,
a very serious mistake. Those boys
will be more independent than ever
and will know exactly what they want
to do and the conditions under which
they mean to work. The war has dem
onstrated that we can get along with
less labor on the farm than formerly
without curtailing the amount produc
ed. I think the next few years will
see the soldiers following the callings
to which they are attracted and for
which they are especially fited, and I
think the farmers will be hiring better
labor and less of It. The whole prob
lem is economic. Machinery will have
to replace men, for the benefit of the
race at large, and there will be more
discrimination in getting and giving
jobs than has been known heretofore."
Mr, Kjosness feels that the people
of the county will certainly derive
great benefit and pleasure from attend
ing ttie farmers' .and housekeepers'
week, and he is desirous that every
one should be thoroughly familiar with
the many interesting and useful dis
cussions that will be given a place on
the program during those four days.

Bavarian Capital Changed Little

Munich.—Munich looks much less
changed after four years of war than
those who knew it would have thought
possible. The city appears far livelier
and gayer than thrèe years ago. Part
of this Impression is unquestionably
due to the profusion of Bavarian-Ger
man flags everywhere, emphasized by
the red banners of the socialists.
Although fairly dark in the evening,
because coal must be saved, the streets
are crowded during the early hours.
Restaurants are open and a fairly pal
atable imitation of beer is served.
Many of the larger restaurants and
prominent hotels have paper napkins
and paper tablecloths.
Every postage stamp one licks has
a strange disagreeable taste because
of the use of some substitute. Bicycle
tires have been replaced by coils of
The streets are as clean as ever and
with stores as beautiful, although filled
with articles the prices of which would
have been unbelievable four years
The suffering seems to fall heavily
on the poor people. Food now Is more
plentiful because the signing of the
armistice brought out stocks which
have been held in reserve. The people
are perhaps paler than their wont, but
the street crowds appear to be warmly
The city has resumed dancing, which
has occasioned a terrific editorial out
burst from a portion of the press. For

A Few .Suggestions for the Repre

the Fire of Discontent.
(By a Laboring Man.)
1. Maintain the present wage scale
by stopping the mines and industries
from cutting the wages as they are
doing .now in Idaho,
Keen the mines and manufac
tories running and not let them shut
down for the purpose of a reduction
3. Appoint a commission to in
vesHgate the exhorfaitant prices of
commodities and find the cause, let
the people know and don't pigeon
4. Appropriate a hundred million
dollars for the boys coming home
first to give them assistance until
spring, instead of drugging the mar
ket with surplus labor, as some in
dustries would like to see it.
5. Government regulations of all
rai1-oads and industries and not own
ership, as the government would not
be able to buy their watered stock,
6. Stop all enemy aliens from
working in our industries and turn
their jobs to the boys coming home,
