Walter Kline was taken to the Latah county poor farm by Sheriff Woody, Wednesday of this week. This is a sad ending to the life of one of the old pioneer prospectors of this locality [Kendrick]. For many years Walter spent his time in the hills of the Clearwater, always with the vision of wealth as a reward for his efforts. During the winter he would come to Kendrick and work around the hotels for a living In the spring as soon as the weather was favorable he made preparations for another good-seeking [sic] expedition away back in the hills. Often his friends would "grub stake" him, with the understanding that if he struck it rich they would share in his good fortune. But Walter never reached the end of the rainbow.

During the last few years he has become totally blind and is quite feeble. He has always had a dread of having to go to the poor farm, so it is probable that he has not many more years to live.

Good old Joe Ivy has taken care of him for the past three years. He furnished him clothing, food and a home at the hotel and Mrs. Ivy took care of him as she would one of her own family. These good people did what few people would do and their kindness to poor old Walter is no doubt one of the brightest periods of his life. As the Ivy family sold out the hotel and expect to leave soon for the coast it was impossible for them to look after him longer, as their plans are still indefinite.
