The Times prints butterwrapperr Kimberly Students Celebrate April 1 ■All Fools Hay" Occasion for Reunion on Shale Shoals of Roek Creek On April 1 It became a prevailing idea that the school people of Kim berly should have a vacation from their studies. Hut the hoard some how did not see fit to grant such a whim. However, seniors are not to be de nied anything on which they have set their hearts. So. one of the young men was appointed to explain the idea to the session room teacher— which he did. j About nine o'clock a. m. one could see a crowd of young people gather ing near the Gill garage. One of the number, a young fellow more cour ageous than the rest, stepped up to the senior session room. There in great bold letters he wrote the motto "April Fool." Then, with the aid of one junior, who happened to be driving a Ford, they made their way to Rock creek, where they enjoyed the day. Hut, "one must always pay the fid dler," as the saying goes. Now, all of the twelve young people who would have their way, are staying in at re cess time to make up time. But still they say they don't mind, since the day was fine, and they had enough fun 'to make up for any grief now. But the most peculiar point of it all is that tlie "idea" seemed to be catch ing. The correspondent has it that the grades even down as far as the seventh and eighth or Junior high school also took it upon themselves to have a holiday, with practically the same results.

LYMAN A. SUTMILLER HOME Lyman A. Sutmilier, son of H. C. Sutmiller of Hansen, and a member of 100 Co., 8th Regt,, U. S. M. C„ is now at home on a furlough. Mr. Sut The Kimberly Advance Published Every Thursday as a Department of The Twice-A-Week Twin Falls Times Carrie F. Bookman, Editer the six forty acre HOMESTEAD TRACT That article, "How Shall We Have Meat?" by George Frederic Stratton, in The Country Gentleman of March 9 is simply brim full of facts. Facts that need to be known too. Facts that are vital to industry, vital to the comfort and happiness of millions, vital to warfare and to government. It starts something as follows: "It is fairly well known that the second crop of alfalfa Is under nor mal conditions, of considerably more value than the first. And that pecul iarity is also seen in many conven tions—political, religious, or cow." Well the scene of Mr. Stratton's story was laid at a cow convention, that is, the recent great live stock convention in Salt Lake City; and it has to do with such interesting and intensely patriotic subjects as cows, calves, pork, mutton, beef, wool, and the six hundred forty acre stock homestead law. throwing open more than *0,000,000 acres of land to entry and providing $150,000 appropriation for this purpose. Already 46,000 ap plications are In for such homestead entries. This matter particularly interests us, for it means many things and its effects are numerous. There is a lot of land in the western states ly ing idle and most of the particular kind of land open for entry under the 040-acre law is practically useless for any other purpose than grazing. The government, hoping to facilitate the production of meat, decided that if this land was taken in large enough quantities to be serviceable for graz ing many men, inclined toward the cattle business, but obliged to work on a small scale, would be let into tlie game. As matters stand today, many men of lesser means, would enjoy raising cattle, if they had the range to raise a sufficient quantity to justify them in going into the business. They hardly see where it pays, when they must pay heavy rent for pasture and high prices for hay. Therefore, tlie government would open a way to accommodate their am bitious. They throw open large tracts of grazing land to be dished off In considerable quantities to enable their utilization for stock raising by little cattleman. But what do they do. to the big cat tleman, who has been depending up on this waste land for grazing his largo herds? ( Only two things are left for him to choose from. He must take one or I the other. Either he must go out of the cattle business on a large scale can the or tie must follow the plan laid down by a cattleman of Portland, Oregon. Here are his statements made at the live-stock convention at Salt City, according to Mr. Stratton's story, "I'll tell you how it Is hitting me, right now'! I've got 14,000 acres, full title or lease, running cows, horses, and sheep. Last spring soon after that stock homestead law passed, fellow came to me and told me he was going to enter a section just north of my line. I knew the section well. He can't raise a ton of hay to the acre on it and I told him I was sorry for him, hut he only grinned and said, 'I'd like to get a job from you, herd ing.' "What's the game?" 1 asked. "I'll herd for you—regular pay," he came back, 'aand clean that section and raise what grass I can for you. Then when I prove up I'll sell you tlie section." "Well I made the deal with him. fixing a price right then, and done the same thing with threg other fellows alongside of him. the land 1 can get and I can't buy tenth of an acre from the government, or lease it. so I took those fellows up. Just had to. That's what the 640-acre law is going to do. and about all It will do." Lake a up some on I've I want all a Well, there are two sides to this question. There is an advantage for the little man and a disadvantage for the big man. which he can, evidently, get around if he is willing to pay the price. miller enlisted July 7, 1916. He says he enjoys the marine life fine. He has made several fine trips. Among these are, through the Pana ma canal, Cuba, Haiti, and to Vir ginia. He is now located at Galves ton, Texas. He says that in going from San Francisco to Quantico, Vir ginia, through the Panama canal took about 22 days. He also says to the home folks that all the boys, and most of the "boys" of that regiment are from Montana, Idaho and California, desire to thank them for their undivided loyalty and support. "I'll tell you it Is fine,'' he said. Their quarters are comfortable and their meals are first rate. His only regret is that though tlie marines are first in war to fight, he may not get a cha nce at those kalse rites. CHANGES POSITIONS Garl Ridgeway, who has been act ing as cashier for tlie Bank of Kim berly for a long time, resigned his position the first part of the week. Mr. Ridgeway immediately accepted position as the assistant cashier for tlie First National Bank. Mr. Denham of Montana was called to fill the vacancy thus made. Denham was formerly of Kimberly, having owned Jointly the Turner Ad dition with Mr. Turner.
