Section Office with Shepard * Hanvtt GEO. G. BARRETT, Editor. WENDELL IDAHO, JULY 13. 1911 The Farmer the Mainstay. Wendell is not the largest town in southern Idaho; nor has it gone as far in municipal improvement as some of our neighbors have, dell never has had a boom, but has increased in population with a steady, healthy growth that speaks well for its future. There has not been a fire of any consequence nor a business failure since the town was started; which is saying a great deal considering the amount of speculation that takes place in a new country like this. But whatever credit is due Wen dell, it is not a drop in the bucket to what is due the Wendell farmers. After a thorough investigation into conditions of development all over southern Idaho, by personal inspec tion, we are prepared to say that part of it has reached as high a •state of cultivation, in the same length of time as has the district immediately tributary to Wendell. Although our farmers have had difficulties, serious and various, to contend with in the past, they have made a showing that is simply mar velous. The future southern Idaho towns must be built up and maintained by the farming community that surrounds them. The doctors, Wen no lawyers, shopkeepers and real estate men are all right in their places; but it remains for the farmers to And if Wendell make the town, can continue to get the cream of the farmer population that is com ing to this part of the state, she will continue to have a healthy growth, and in the near future be second to none in this part of the state. The popular representative to the State Legislature, elected from the west end of Lincoln County, seems to have taken very' much to heart the position the people of Wendell have taken in the matter of the Snake river bridge which is to be built between Lincoln and Twin Falls counties. We are unable to see why a legislator who has the in terests of his constituents so much at heart as Mr. Smith has, should oppose a movement to have the people's money spent where it will he of the greatest benefit to the • greatest number of people, and where it can be spent most econo mically. The people of Wendell hold that as long as Lincoln county is sup posed to pay as much of the cost as does Twin Falls county, the bridge should be located where it will be of some benefit to this county, in-' stead of being placed where it will be of use only to our sister city Buhl. Our honorable representative should not attempt to even up any personal scores that he may hold against Wendell by trying to preju dice the minds of the good people of his neighborhood against this town. It is unbecoming to a person who has reached the full estate of manhood to so twist and contort things of a personal nature that they seem to apply to an entire neighborhood instead of to himself alone. The people of Wendell are willing to go more than half way to meet their neighbors on the south west. We are all striving in the common cause of making for our selves homes here in the desert, and the more nearly we can pull togeth er that much quicker will our pur pose be realized. If our neighbors out that way feel that they have been slighted or in any way discrim inated against, we feel sure that everything possible will be done to try to rectify any such mistake, providing such persons will let their injuries be known.

Assistant Engisacr Robinson of, the Oregon Short Line, was in Wen dell last ■week to confer with the business men concerning the loca tion of the depot. He proposes to build a regulation modern depot at this place. It will have two wait ing rooms and two rooms for bag gage freight and express. The railroad will construct a cinder plat form two blocks in length along the track for the accommodation of the public. Mr. Robinson offers to put the passenger station at the foot of Shoshone st., which is the nearest point on the railroad to the busi ness section of the town. The loca tion proposed is regarded as the logical one by the entire body of business men, and it is very fortu nate indeed that we can have the station so located that it will be satisfactory to every one. Robinson also asked that the city obtain control of certain pieces of land which will be turned over to the rail road as soon as all the above improvements are completed.

Weeds as well as domestic crops have made a very proficient growth the past season, and now is the time that every rancher should see that this crop on his respective land is gotten rid of, as they are now in bloom, and the seeds will soon form to be scattered about,pro ducing a much thicker crop another year.
