Hazel, to mourn his death. Speaking ot the tragedy which led up to his death speaks as lollows; O. S. Howell, who lives a mile southeast of town, was shot yester day by L. G. Withers, who used a .38 Colt's revolver, the bullet strik ing in Uie left side near the lower rib, and coming out directly in front. Withers, who is about 28 years old. and has been considered claimed Howell owed him for labor for which he would not settle. Yes terday the two men met in the office the irrigatiouiut " batty," of the lumber yard about 3 o'clock and Withers filled out a check and demanded that Howell sign it. ell told How Withers he had been a "slacker" on the job and that he would not sign the check. Withers drew his gun and told Howell he and pretty Howell ducked behind the would sign the check quick. counter and Withers followed him and fired, with the gun within two feet of his victim. After he fired the shot Withers compelled Howell to sign the check, telling him would shoot again If Howell signed the check he he did not. offered. then Withers marched him up the street to th corner opposite the drug store. Here he asked Howell how he was feeling, very good." sorry I shot you, but I had to do it." Howell went on to Dr. Simonton's office, and Withers erased to the drug store and under pretense of us ing the telephone hid the gun in the prescription room. On coming out he met Dr. M. W. Smith, who took him In custody, placed guards over him at Dr. Simonton's office and not ified the sheriff, who came down and took Withers to the county Jail. Howell's wound was dressed by Dr. Simonton who took him to the Howell said "not Withers said: "I am Gooding hospital. where it was found necessary to operate on him r?move a portion of the brçast bone which the bullet splintered. Withers, who has been considered ■batty," has been about town for some time bat has always seemed quiet and has never made a demon stration that would warrant his ap prehension. However, he has been obsessed with the Idea that the peo ple considered him a slacker and bis expression used to him by How ell, is thought to have upset him and caused him to attempt murder. 1 •- ta ta — ANOTHER ERROR IN CASUALTY REPORT the demonstration al Twin Falls of I On the 11th of last month during ; the signing of Ihe armistice.

Of course the grlef of the mother at this time was ftrota and because of the excitement occasioned by the demonstration the straln wa s most hard on the mother. On last Mtfhdey Mr. M. B.

Harris, who Is -quite well known here, hav ing worked for the canal company for some time and in a letter receiv ed from him he reports that he i» in good health. THE JOB HE LEFT BEHIND HIM. Many expedients have been sug geated as to what is the best thing we can do to make places for return lug soldiers and sailors, Reclaiming land by clearing the slumps. reclamation. Irrigation, druinage, etc., are sought to be made popular undertakings. Allowing for tho restless and un settled frame of mind produced ln many men by war, most of them want to return to their Jobs. Unemployment is a ruthless en emy, and what any man wants first of all who works for a living, Is a job, upon his return to civil life. The first thing for our returning millions of men Is good times with business and industry in a vigorous, Uplooking condition. The worst thing for our boys who are coming home is to find industry slack, business slow and prosperity a minus article. Industries should not be hampered and discouraged by foolish legislat ive experiments, regulations and high taxes. - ta ta - BROWN-KITT.

S. department of agriculture entitled "Delicious Producta of the Dairy". It gives information on the food value of whole milk, buttermilk. Ice cream, cream, cottage cheese, butter and American cheese. It can be distributed to consumers and would no doubt Increase their ap preclatlbn of milk and dairy products and as a result the local consumption of these would be Increased. This bulletin Is published in an attractive form. Inasmuch as the present high prices of dairy products, enforced by the correspondingly high prices of feed and labor have a tendency to decrease the consumption of dairy products, especially among those who do not appreciate the import ance and food value of dairy products in the diet, it behooves all those In terested in the dairy industry to give as great publicity to the facts con tained In this bulletin as possible. These can be supplied from the office of field dairyman at Boise, Ida., and can be sent in packages contain ing not more than four pounds by the government frank, and where larger quantities are desired they can be sent by express collect.. Sincerely yours. Field Dairyman, Boise. FOR IDAHO'S SOIJ> 1ER DEAD.

Pew people not members of farm bureaus understand the real signifi cance of the Farm Bureau organiza tion, It appeared In a recent session of the committee on agricultural pro duction of the state council of de fense which met at the Utah Agricul tural College recently. The discus sions of the committee showed clear ly that the Idea has crept Into the minds of men not closely connected with farm life that the moving Idea behind a farm bureau organization Is price fixing. This idea is entirely wrong, according yo the committee. The modern farm bureau includes not only organized farmers but farm ers' wives whose organizations are part of the farm bureau, and their children, who, In their boys' and girls' clubs, are affiliated with the general organization. Co-operative effort Is the Import ant element In farm bureau organiz ation. For example, grasshopper control and the suppression of ro dent pests are Impossible for individ ual farmers. When, however, there is concerted' action on the part of an entire town or county, much can be accomplished. Nothing shows the far-reaching alms of the organization better than the preamble to the constitution of the State Farm Bureau. This is as follows: "The object of this organization shall be to promote the development of the most profitable and permanent system of agriculture, the most wholesome and satisfactory living conditions, the highest Ideals in home and community life, and a genuine Interest In farm business and rural life on the part of men. women, boys and girls in the community. "The object of this organization shall be effected through the adop tion and promotion of a definite program of work, shall be based upon the results of careful study of the rural problems of the state."
