Dec. 5, 1917 — THE ELECTRIC IRON

The Electric Iron is the practical Christmas Gift.

For the Stay-At-Home: for the regular weekly wash. For the Traveler: for those quick pressings of crumpled frills so necessary when dressing for dinner at the hotel. For the College Girl: for many little treasures she dares not trust to the laundry.

Phone now, and secure an Electric Iron before your dealer’s stock is exhausted by holiday demands. Northern Idaho & Montana Power Co.

NO VOLUNTEERS AFTER DEC. 14

Postmaster Moore, local recruiting officer by reason of his postmastership, has a letter from the U.S. recruiting service at Spokane stating that no person of registration age can volunteer his services to the government after Dec. 14, and no person will be sent from here to Spokane to volunteer after Dec. 10. Young men who want choice of service should act at once if they are contemplating volunteering. Otherwise they will have to wait to be called and will be assigned to such service as the government may determine.
