I got it from the government agent, Brunkow, during his recent vis it. here. He quoted figures at the same time on alslke and red clover, and on checking up we found that these agreed with quotations which we received. We are not getting white clover quotations, but I sup posed that as the other prices named by him were correct, the white clover prices were also correct. I do not knowr personally that they were not right, but am assured by seed buyers that they are too high, and that may be true."

It stopped sud denly and Herbert was projected through the air for a spell and then landed hard- It looked like it was all over with Herbert, but the lad fought gamely. When the bull charg ed he rammed his little hands into to animal's nostrils and gripped tight. The bull sank to its knees and Her bert took a chance and raced for the fence, made it, and vaulted lightly ov er it to safety. Herbert breathlessly told the story of the fight to his fath er. The elder Hosmer seized a shot gun and killed the bull. .1 FARMERS TOIL; WIVES TAKE FOOD TO MARKET (International News Service) CANTON, O., Aug. 21—Farmers' wives are bringing their produce to the Canton war market and allow ing their husbands to continue their labors in the fields.

Musical Festival People Entertained The Singers Accept Invitation of Mr. and Mrs. Butler—Some Business and Much Sociability—A Financial Statement. The invitation of Mr. and Mrs. But for last Friday evening was ac cepted by a large representation of the singers who participated in the Coun Musical Festival which was not only the event of last week, but the greatest musical event in the history the Twin Falls country. The in tention had been to hold the meeting the lawn for which lights and dec orations had been arranged. This is generally a safe proposition at this time of year, but did not prove so in this instance, as just enough rain fell make the grass wet and drive the company in doors, where it was some what crowded but wholly cheerful. Premising that it was proper and desirable that the public know all the facts in connection with the finances the festival, the chairman of the committee having thorn in charge read the following statement: Receipts August 9th August 10th $466.50 . 322.12 $787.62 $ 40.00 Music books sold, about— $827.62 Expenses Rent on lumber and spoilage- -$ 99.79 Erecting and taking down plat form 55.00 Labor, moving chairs from schools, churches and halls 24.75 Transfer, moving piano and chairs .

He was convinced such a thing was en tirely feasible: indeed, that its read ability was fully demonstrated by the Festival just held. His idea was that such an organization could profitably give at least two public entertain ments annually—one Indoors in mid winter, and another each fall, on the order of the Festival. It does not ap pear that Mr. Butler said this : but It is certain, just the same, that if the singers of the county have enough public spirit and interest in music, to effect such an organization, they can secure his leadership, if desired. The major part of the evening was of a social character. Light refresh ments were served, several musical numbers were given and Mr. Butler was called upon for some darkey stories which he gave in his inimita ble manner. A genuine Carolina "NIggah" would say. "Dat you Kph?" if he heard Mr. B. without seeing him. "THE BATTLE OF THE ANCRE" AT THE OPHEUM THIS WEEK As thrll Racked on thrill—it was just as if one were actually there—a few definite impressions came into the ascendancy. It all was so clear, so close, so tremendously real! A great gray tank, filled with sol diers, spitting gasoline fumes driven from a giant motor—you can almost hear the ear-splitting noise of the ex haust as it moves out, like a ponder ous ant, toward the enemy line That was a vivid impression. A company of Morvlans is waiting "to go over the top." You can see them nervoqsly playing with their bayonets—it is the hardest period In the whole day's w'ork, they say, the waiting—and joking eacli other. Men and guns, guns and men, guns, guns, guns. There is am impression that presses deep into the watching brain. The guns, the guns! Great massive brutes of steel . . . there's a battery now, con cealed under an artificial covering to cheat the airplane scout. It's going into action! Smoothly, rapidly. Not a motion lost. A huge shell snatched from a pile on the ground, is shoved into the breach. All hands back! A little chap pulls a string, the great gun recoils a dozen feet, a lit tle smoke curling from the reopened breech, a quick swab, another shell, another pull. Through one's head that silly little nursery jingle is running; "All that goes up must come down." What's happening where those shells are falling? Such is the impression of the guns. There are five reels of that kind of thing in the British war pictures Nothing like it has come out of the war. Most of the picture was taken while the battle of the Ancre was actually in progress. You should not miss this amazing war picture. Shown at the Orpheum theatre on Thursday and Friday. GUARDSMEN TO HAVE MODEL ( AMP ON COAST (International News Service) SAN FRANCISCO.
