Pearl unknowingly was entered into the Miss Idaho contest and she won--1906. This was part of the Fourth of July Celebration in Juliaetta that year.
"I never dreamed I would ever be in this for I was just a common country girl. They were to choose who would be Miss Idaho an lead the parade. The way she was chosen was when you made a purchase at the store every cent you spent ment a vote for the girl of your choice, or as they said, what you thought the most popular girl.
"I dident even know they were running my name when one day I got a phone call saying I had won and was to be Miss Idaho. What a surprise! How I brushed and curried my pony, trimed her main an tail so she would look the best, all the while feeling it must be a mistake. I just knew I was the only girl in the country that was ou in the field pitchding hay, riding a pony over the hills, and building watering troughs. No, it just couldent be true! But, when my dad went into town that week the merchants were all congratulating him on his daughter's winning. I had often played an also sang at many funerals in the town, so folk knew my only talent wasent pitching hay."
