County Chairman IT. S. Food Com. In compliance with President's proclamation of July 27, the Idaho Food administration rule: No retail er shall sell flour to exceed one quar ter barrel sack, to any one customer in city, nor to exceed one half barrel to country customers. Before sale every retailer will sat isfy himself that customer 1ms supply of substitute in his possession, or must buy such substitute at time of sale of flour to extent of one part substitute to two parts flour, cxcenl an allowance of five per cent, or five pounds on each twenty-five pounds of substitute in potatoes, must be made at ratio of four to one, for instance, in a sale of one quarter barrel sack of flour, retailer will satisfy himself customer buys or has in his posses sion twenty pounds substitute and twenty pounds potatoes, we deem ii a violation of food control act, or where any customer buys or has in his possession more than a suffici ent quantity of flour for thirty days supply, where bought from one re lailer, or several retailers, is also a violation on part of retailer under food act. to knowingly sell customer more than thirty days supply. Will expect everyone as a patriotic duty to notify this office of violation, either toy retailer or consumer, giving date, name and specific instance. From this date we will deem it a vi olation of food control for any mer c hat to sell to any customer more than one dollar's worth of sugar, or in any case to exceed twenty-five pounds to one purchaser in city or rural district, except hotels, restau rants, boarding houses and similar in stitutions, but in no case must sugar or flour ,sale exceed to any one cus tomer a thirty days supply, except graham and whole wheat flour con taining at least ninety-five per cent of the wtfeat grain, may be sold with ten percent substitute, except, far mers may exchange at flour mills in their vicinity under regular milling terms for a thirty days supply o 1 flour, and no more.

BOISE PAYETTE LUMBER CO. PHONE 301 will find his answer, strange as it may seem, together witli his expla nation and displays of the products of the process, entirely convincing. "Dehydrating," is what the process is called—which is simply a somewhat pedantic way of saying that it is a process of extracting from the fruit or the vegetable treated all the wat t with which nature supplied it—every last little bit of it. This process is said to be as simple as it is wonder ful; and the possibilities for saving waste crops, for cutting transporta tion cost and for very largely bene fitting any community that can and does have abundant yield from the garden, the field and the orchard, can be seen and realized at a glance. The prospectus says: "Our Dehydrators are in every day commercial use and are a demonstrat ed success and we guarantee them to be all we claim for them. Their use gives the growers extra money for their by-products which had been lost to them previously. It enhances tile value of their land by reason of the increased revenue derived from it. It gives employment to the local people, nart.icularly women. It. reduces the -ost of living. It is truly a perfect food product and has never been equaled by any product called "dried" for its natural taste, flavor or color, and it has a very clean and bright appearance, "It is an entirely system of drying green fruits and vegetables and other products by simple meth ods heretofore unused and has ad new vantages that absolutely revolutionize the economy of the farm and or chard." A number of our business men be came greatly interested in the new method as one especially needed on this tract, and Mr. Dean offered to bring a unit of the dehydrating ma chine and set it up right here in or der that assurance as to its practic ability may he made doublv sure. That this would be done seemed quite prob able.

Butter wrapper headquarters is al RAILROAD BILL ATTACKED IN THE SENATE! CUMMINS BACKED BY PRO-; GRESSIVES ASSAIL THE MEASURE Amendment Placates Some Republicans Congress Quits Cussing Adminis tration Work and Decides to Do a Little Work Itself—McAdoo Bill Un, WASHINGTON, Feb. 12— Senat' progressives of botli parties rallied today to the support of the drive launched yesterday by Senator Cum mins of Iowa, against the administra tion railroad bill. Almost to a man, they endorsed Senator Cummins' i amendment which he declared will have the American people from $150. j 000,000 to $200,000,000 a year in guar antees to the railroads. The supporters of the Cummins j program, however, made it clear that they are heartily in accord with the i main purpose of the bill. They he-1 lieve that the president was entirely j justified in taking over the railroads. Senator Cummins contends that it i is grossly unfair to the public to i compensate the railroads upon the 1 basis of their average earnings for 1915, 1916, anti 1917. On this basis [ tlie government will guarantee an an nual return of approximately $950,-1 000,000 to the railroads. He would j give them a return based upon their 1 earnings for last year. Congress yesterday began to prac tice some of its own preaching. Af- i ter two months of clamor for more I speed and cohesion in the adminis -1 tration's conduct of the war. balanced | by considerable lagging on their own j part, botli houses today got down to business with an energy and concert | of purpose heretofore almost wholly j lacking. Both houses took up the railroad j bill today and decided to give their j whole attention to America's trans portation problem. Prophesying var-1 led considerably as to when the men • [ sure would reach a. vote, but it was j generally agreed definite action would be taken within two weeks. Republican opposition to the rail i road bill has been to a large extent | pacified by the amendment, voted in- i to the hill against the administration's j wish, fixing a definite time limit to j the government operation of the, roads. Secretary McAdoo's war finance corporation bill today was assailed as "unsound" before the senate com merce committee. ; Attacks were made on the wide i powers of the bill by Senators Ixidge. j Smoot and Gore. "Under its present form this cor poration could be overwhelmed witli | wildcat schemes," Senator l-odge de dared. "That depends upon the common sense of those who arc running it." answered Senator Williams of Mis- ) sissippi. The senate fight over conduct of the war will re-onen in earnest again this week. Senator Ollie James of Kentucky, an admin istration leader, gave notice today that jje will address the senate on Thursday on "America and lier na tional defense." Senator Weeks of Massachusetts gave notice that he will address the senate on war legislation on Friday, Long debate then followed. America's THE SALMON SEGREGATION REPORT AS TO REDUCE AREA (Continued From Page 1) tude ranging from 4000 to 6000 feet. The "A" canal waters and upper or southern part of the tract, land around Rogerson and Amsterdam, while the main canal takes a northeasterly course from the reservoir and near Hollister divides, the east branch be ing No. 1 canal and the west branch being No. 2 canal, and it is the latter to which Commissioner Tallman re fers as the "west lateral." A very lit tle investigation will quickly convince one that here on the west side under the No. 2 canal would be the first lands to be cut out. The character of the land, lack of settlement, long dis tance, seepage and evaporation makes the operation of this canal uneconoml cal to the system. Before commencing field work, an invitation was extended to Mr. G. M. Hall, representative of the bond hold ers, that his people participate in making this selection but he in their behalf declined to take part al though he assured me that his office »nd its records would be at all times at my service, and for nearly three months while on this tract, Mr. Hall and others of his office. Messrs. Harry Dietrich, Fred Bates, Geo. Grover and J. C. Porterfield extended to me every courtesy and all favors asked of them were quickly and cheerfully given, , Also at the same time a representative meeting of the water users was held In the town of Hollister and an invl tation was extended to them to desig nate one of their number to as.-ist me in this selection and such meeting de dined to do so but on the contrary It was the well nigh unanimous opin Ion that I should proceed alone. I am glad to report that during the time I spent in the field the best treatment was given me by the set tiers. Mr. R. A. Carter, president, and Mr. Ray Beauchamp, secretary, and the other members of the settlers as sociation. accorded me such fair treatment and a universal good will of the people generally has convinced me that they are only asking for a \Qualitv ^OUNÎ 5 GOODS THAT |viAKE lasti Nc OmpressiONS/ =y' •» Seasonable Merchandise at a Marvelous Reduction This is an opportunity you We need not advance a single argument We can give to you the A Dollar Saved Is a Dollar Made, can not afford to miss, as to the wisdom of purchasing now. amount of reductions, but the only way to compare the quality with the price is toVISIT THIS STORE. } y < < ^ = -~ = s E — = s ~ s = E rr = = = E ~ s s: E E = = E E E = E E = = s — ~ E E = = ~ ~ E S = E E = = = E — CORSETS EMBROIDERIES, IX Insertions, Flouncings, Edgings Front and Back Lace V The Season's best merchandise—an opportu nity for you to start your spring sewing at a low priee. 75 cent values at 50 cents 50 cent values at 35 cents 35 cent values at 27 and 19 cents 25 cent values at 19 and 15 cents 20 cent values at 15 and 10 cents Kabo La Camille, P.

Guided by recommendations of the state engineer and those of your hoard, I selected a temporary list of lands and finished ray first examina tion on December 22. On the 15th of January 1918, Mr. C. W. Wells, Carey land agent of the interior department, joined me and we went again over the entire tract. Mr. Wells having had long and varied experience in land matters and the fact that I had pra ceded him for several weeks on this tract, made the last examination quite thorough Indeed, and I therefore, do not hesitate to recommend the list at tached to this report as Carey land to which patent should issue, In the economy of things, I found at times that it was necessary to ex elude good land with fair improve ments while perhaps poorer lands with less improvements were includ ed; but in making such selection, I had in mind the elimination of iat erals, but the proximity of main ca nais, railroad, towns, schools, etc., also the solidarity of land to be re tained, soil condition, rock, and both water anfl air drainage. You will note on the accompanying map that the segregation yet lacks compact ness. The very nature of the land condition here accounts for this. In this upper Snake river land for count less years, the up river winds have carried across the soil from west slopes, south slopes and southwest slopes to the lea side slopes leaving thin soli and exposed rocks on the former and deep soil on the latter. This Is one reason, and the fact that considerable land of the segregation lies above gravity water, is another, why the tract appears so spotted, Since the actual Irrigable acres are to be counted as part of the 35,000, the method herein adopted brings a much larger acreage to patent and at the same time the best land only is watered. Mr. Wells was in full ac cord and In my judgment this will be better for the parties concerned. It is not alone the elimination of a few thousand acres that counts but the fact that we present a system eight miles less in breadth with 28.86 miles of large canal cut out, carrying with it 48.45 miles of laterals or In all 77.3 miles of ditch besides other laterals have been shortened. If this tract can be fixed on lines herein indicated, there is nrf reason why the Twin Falls-Salmon should not be a good place to live and to prosper. Respectfully submitted, C. W. WHIFFIN'. PAN-GERMANS ON AGGRESSIVE IN THE LAND OF KAISER (Continu d from page one) if Austria so desired. The next move, therefore, must be made by the dual empire. Austria must decide whether the demands and desire for peace at home is great enough to defy the German military control. It is expected here that there can be no compromise, at least under present conditions, be tween the United States and the pres ent German imperial government. The kaiser's belligerent message to the burgomaster of Hamburg, cabled last /light in which he said: "He who will not accept peace • • • must be forced to accept peace," is accepted as a proper definition of the present German position, everyone who has analyzed the presi dent's address of yesterday, taken >n connection with his war alma speech And of a month ago. realizes that the United States will never be a party to any conferences which have for their object a made-in-Gennany peace.
