NO. 10 Second Liberty Loan Drive Closed Saturday Kimberly Subseribes Over $40,000.00, Nearly Ten I'er Cent of The Total Bank Deposits. Saturday evening brought to a close the big Liberty Bond drive that for three consecutive days was being push ed forward by local business men and farmers. The call for a drive came too late for Kimberly to accomplish lier allotment hut nevertheless lier teams decided that for the brief time allotted them they would spare no ef forts to make a success of their drive. Kimberly had been apportioned some $50,00« for Hie second Liberty Loan, and had they been notified in time their apportionment and of what they were up against, it is the opinion <>t local leaders that the apportionment would have been reached if not sur passed. As it was, however, the Bank of Kimberly reports the receipt of $33.200 worth of applications for bonds, secur ed shortly before and during the drive by Hie local teams. The Farmers & Merchants National bank, reports the receipt of $7,300, making a total raised in Hie Kimberly precinct of $40,500. Besides this, some twelve thousand dollars worth of bonds were purchas ed in Twin Falls by residents of Hie Kimberly district, but as that was registered with the Twin Falls sales, it cannot well be counted with Hie Kimberly proportlonmcnt. The drive for the bonds commenced early Thursday morning, teams on the job. and continued until Saturday evening. Of course several of the teams completed their terri tories before Friday evening, and then either assisted some other went back to their one work, which was waiting in great need for loss o them. The teams customarily the high water marks, asking nothing lease than five hundred dollars, ex cept in rare cases, where they knew their prospective buyer could not ford so large an investment. Very little argument was needed in the sale of Hie bonds. All were fam iliar with its importance, and all were sympathetic with the cause represent ed by Hie teams. The efforts expend ed was directed In holding the pur chaser up to a worthy mark, and not permitting a buy away below the pur chaser's ability. While Hie teams were somewhat dis appointed in not being able to reach the apportionment .they nevertheless leel as if they did all they could, and are glad it came out as well as it did.

High School Carnival Proves Big Success Clever Duplication of Mardi (iras Kea Knlertaiiimeiit A ffords For t are Kimberly Folk. Perhaps the biggest and most enter taining feat of the high school that will occur this semester, was present ed to Kimberly folks last Friday night in tlie form of carnival. The arrangements for the carnival were made by Hie students and teach ers of Hie two high schools, Hie Jun ior and Hie Senior, in the unfinished basement of the now high school bulld Here plenty of room could be mg. iiad, and Hie bare ground offered many advantages in the way of erecting the poles and constructing tents. There was a large crowd present. Tlie high school auditorium had been filled during the first part of the ev ening by Hie parents and those inter ested in Hie children of tlie grades, to see Hie clever and unique program that was being presented by Hie stu dents of Hie various grades, Imme diately following this first program, nearly the whole crowd hurried down to Hie high school carnival, with the result that the limited room in that section of the school was soon monop olized, and some folks were obliged to leave before obtaining a chance to en joy the features of the carnival. For those who were permitted to remain however, a good time had sure ly been prepared. As they entered the carnival grounds they were greeted first -with a "shoot the shutes." This was a clever arrangement, consisting of a rallier long wooden track erected a forty-five degree angle as compared with Hie level ground, sled with rollers had been provided tc run on this track and for the sum of five cents any one could enjoy Hie privilege of riding this vehicle down Hie chute. Turning to the left at the entrance to the grounds, the visitor was first greeted with a candy booth where home made candy of every description was on sale. This booth evidently did a very prosperous business, for before the completion of the evening its pro prietors had completely sold out their stock. Japanese Then one came to i house, where tea and wafers were be ing served to a throng of customers by real Japanese, so far as the cos tume was concerned. This place of dainty refreshments was provided with small chairs and tables, and a Vie len The merry-go-round, was a novel feature of the program. No carnival is quite complete without one, and so] the managers of this production were careful to supply Hie wants of their customers in this respect. A large plank with cushioned ends was ar ranged on a wagon wheel, which was in turn erected on a pivot and drap ped to conceal Hie motive power of the arrangement. For five cents one could get on one end of this plank, and mysteriously it would begin whirling around. Finally, however Hie motive power became exhausted, with its tre mendous trade, and those standing by saw a couple of huskies crawl out from beneath Hie draperies and go over to the next stand. trola. Then came another clever stunt, the outside of the lent were printed the words, "See your self as others see It. was a marvelous arrange and Hie Or you ment of notions and ideas, picture produced was laughable in the extreme. This next stand was a coffee and ham sandwich booth. It certainly en joyed a prosperous business, and who ever seen one at a carnival that didn't. Egyptian and Hindu fortune tellers were also prominent at the carnival. Their tent was erected just at Hie exit of the "prize baby show." The "baby show'' enjoyed a great patronage by the visitors. There was a negro baby, a trip of triplets, and the biggest baby on earth, and for time a real baby- Just who these babies were is hard to tell, but they weighed all Hie way from forty two hundred pounds. Visitors to the I "baby show" were requested to cast I ballot thus expressing their choice the babies. Some one erected one of those inev itable constituents of every carnival where you pay so much and get many base balls and throw them so many faces, losing so much loose < hange and gaining so little, but fun. in return. Then there was a spin wheel some description upon which was writ ten "Manufactured by N. W. Swearin gen, with a left hand handsaw." The dance of the seven veils was unique combination of world wonders, and an instructive and entertaining of statuary. Here the -visitor be came acquainted with the "Gold Dust Twins." the tallest, and the largest baby on earth, an exhibition of Red Cross hospital work, the fattest lady in the world and a ghostly looking giant with a glove full of ice. In one corner of the tent was a sec ond booth where the statuary was kept. A tiny statue of a fairy with outstretched arms, possessed with quality of absorbing light sufficient to illuminate Itself In the dark. The Hawaiian dancers were a unique feature of the evenings entertainment. Their booth was after the style of native Hawaiian cabin and their cos tumes the same. The dancing voluntary and accompanied by ukelele. A slide for the youngsters on which they could coast to their heart's con tent free of charge, furnished amuse ment for the kiddies. Financially the carnival was a great success, and as an entertainment f the patrons of the school was mensely enjoyed. . 'nlAiCS t'i I n VV. J.

Mr Gambling Den Is Raided Sunday Night Twenty-five Poker Player Taken Up By Deputies At Oregon Short Line j Hunk House. due of the biggest raids Kimberly j lias witnesses since the days when | this land was sagebrush and prairie i grass, with an occasional trading post here and there dotting the broad ex- ! pause and breaking Hie dull monotony i of a lonesome nothingness but barren i area, occurred lust Sunday night, when ! tlie Oregon Short Line bunk house ! was raided by a company of the offi- I cers of the law. It seems that on Saturday night, or some night previous to that, a couple of young men got in touch with what was going on in that particular section of the city, and after a night's indulgence, lost all their money. As a result they reported the place and the conduct of its inhabitants to the county sheriff, with Hie result that John Beck, Lee Williams, and the local marshal, Dan Harrington, got together on Sunday night and visited the place catching Hie occupants in the midst of their revelry. Poker was the fea ture of the evening and twenty-five were evidently making a business o the game. Among the twenty-five, all of which were taken into custody, most; were Mexicans, some were negroes, and a couple were white. Three automobiles were waiting out side Hie bunk house to take the of fenders to Twin Falls, but after some arguing and hesitation all decided to pay their fine of first offense, to the sum of fifteen dollars each. Most of them paid the fine that night, but some of the Mexicans were obliged to wait in custody for the arrival of Mr. Johnson, the sugar factory man, to whom they look for their wages. Marshal Harrington definitely stat ed Tuesday of this week that if those !n trust did not soon pay their fines they would tie taken to Twin Falls and pul in the county jail to await fur ther developments of the case. He also issued a warning to boot leggers, It is definitely known that a good deal of bootlegging lias been going on in Kimberly for some time, but it lias been difficult to get reliable evidence against it. . SEVKBELV NJUKED J. M. Howard,, living six miles south of Kimberly was severely injured late last week when he was thrown from a wagon while crossing an irrigation ditch. He was watching some chil dren that were riding with him, and in his interest over their welfare, that they might not be thrown out of the wagon he forgot to hold on himself, with the result that he was thrown out. Tile wagon run over his head, cutting one ear nearly off. His phy sician fears that it will be impossible to save the ear. However no bones were broken, which was indeed for tunate.
