The Largest Irrigated Tract in fhe
America has now triumphed
over Egypt and India in holding
what will soon be the largest ir- j
rigated tract of desert land in j
the world. This is what is known j
as the Twin Falls country, in
the still new and young but ar
dently enthusiastic state of
Idaho. The Idaho men "mean
business," and the story ofv the
Twin Falls country is worth
If the reader hasj never seen a
tract of western .idesert" counr
try a brown, dry, treeless, arid
stretch of land, overgrown
sparsely with sage-brush, he has
missed one of the most discour
aging and dflsconsolate sights in.
nature. This was the desolate
appearance presented early in
1903 by the land which now oc
cupies the distinction already
mentioned. Now the women are
playing bridge in the very places
where five years ago the sage
brush mournfully sprouted. Such
is modern progress in the west.
But think what it means. The
game of bridge requires not only
tables, chairs ane packs of cards,
but houses not only houses, but
homes, and a more or less estab
lished and well-organized society
and all this you will find in the
town of Twin Falls, with its 4000
inhabitants, an infant town three
years old, but a most precocions
infant, and one of the miracles
of modern American life. Three
years is a short time in which to
enable men and women, however
determined and capable, to build
and inhabit a town with water
works, a fine schoolhouse cost
ing 54,000, the telephone, tele
graph add electric railway of
every city, hospitals aed hotels,
many rows of young trees and a
park laid out for future embel
lishment. The Egyptians and
Indians, who have had rather a
good start of us in the matter of
time and learning, would marvel
somewhat at this useful city.
What Could He Say?
It was not surprising that sus
picion fell on him. He was trav
eling to town, and in a fit of ab
sence of mind took a fellow trav
eler's umbrella. Much annoyed
by his lapse, he apologized pro
fusely. On his way home at night he
called for three umbrellas which
his wife had left at a shop to be
repaired. Fate decreed that he
should travel in the same car
riage as the man whose umbrel
la he had taken by accident.
This man, seeing that he had
three umbrellas in his hand, re
marked sarcastically: "I see yon
have had a successful day."
What could the poor man re
ply under the circumstances?"
An Unexpected Gift.
As the brisk philanthropist
thrust her fare into the c&b dri
ver's band, she saw that he was
web and apparently cold after
the half hour of pouring rain.
"Do you ever take anything
when you get soaked through?"
'Yes, ma'am," said the cab
man, with humility, "I generally
"Wait here in the vestibule,"
commanded the philanthropist.
She inserted her house key in
the lock, opened the door and
vanished, to reappear a moment
"Here," she said, putting a
small envelope in the man's out
stretched hand. "These are two
grain quinine pills; you take two
of them now and two more in
half an hour."
In our town these days we see
faces that are strange to us;
faces not familiar in our town.
People from far distant parts
of the United States, many of
these strangers are, who have
come to view the country and
perhaps to invest in property

Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
Is the best of all medicines for the cure of diseases,
disorders and weaknesses peculiar to women. It is the
only preparation of its kind devised by a regularly gradu
ated physician an experienced and skilled specialist in
the diseases of women.
It is a safe medicine in any condition of the system.
THE ONE REMEDY which contains no alcohol
and no injurious habit-forming drugs and which
creates no craving for such stimulants.
THE ONE REMEDY so good that its makers
are not jafraid to print its every ingredient on
each outside bottle -wrapper and attest to the
truthfulness of the same under oath.
It is sold by medicine dealers everywhere, and any dealer who hasnt it can
get it. Don't take a substitute of unknown composition for this medicine of
known composition. No counterfeit is as good as the genuine and the druggist
who says something else is "just as good as Dr. Pierce's" is either mistaken
or is trying to deceive you for his own selfish benefit. Such a man is not to db
trusted. He is trifling with your most priceless possession your health

Kansas Girls as Campaigners.
William Allen White says the girl
candidate in Kansas is a success. He
thus describes the campaign methods
of one who was a candidate in Uk
county, Kansas, for Register of Deeds:
"She advertised the fact that she
was a candidate and set forth her qual
ifications in chaste English in the pub
lic prints, and oalle'd upon the voters to
rally to her support; but she bored no
body with personal importunities; her
reticule wasn't loaded with explosive
cigars; 6he didn't call people by their
first names and pretend that it would
be a privilege to die in their woodshed;
she didn't loaf around the grocery
stores telling people what an all-fired
pood girl she was; she didn't carry
around a smile that made har face
ache, she didn't break into country
school houses to rant for a few hours
She retained her customary dignity
and womanliness from the beginning,
reasoning that the people knew she
wanted their votes; if they would not
vote for her they could go to thunder.
Yet she did not maintain too frigid a
reserve. Upon the occasion of a repub
lican rally at Howard she took a hand
in the festivities and passed around red
lemonate that, complied with the pure
food htws, and led the singing "Rally
Round the Flag, Boys," and when she
saw voters gnawing the bark off the
trees she told them where they could
get a sandwich, and she made a thous
and friends without boring anybody.
"The girl candidate is a success in
Kansas, and it is impossible for her to
become too numerous."

. . Joseph H. Godfrey,
The San Diego Sun says: Con
strnr.tinn is to be started on a
large scale shortly after the first
of the yoar on the line, which
John D. Spreckels is building
between San Diego unci Yuma.
Two routes have .been survey
ed, but it is understood the one
selector dips into Mexican terri
tory and runs parallel with the
border between the United States
and Mexico for about fifty miles.
This route was chosen because
it affords a better grade. John
D. Spreckels made a personal
trip to Mexico several montns
ajro and secured the concession
for the portion of the line which
is to be built through that coun
try, and at that time stated his
preference for the lower route.
It is apparently settled that
this line is now to be built and
some speculation is rife as to its
ultimate destiny. It has been
rumored that it will be taken
over, when completed, by Harri-
man, who has at present no eng
try into San Diego. It is said
that there has existed in the past
an agreement between the South
ern Pacific and the Santa Fe, by
the terms of which neither was
to invade the territory of the
The Santa Fe already has a
line into San Diego, and if the
agreement which is said to have
existed is still in force, the South
ern Pacific would be precluded
thereunder from building into
San Diego. There would be
uothing in the way, however, qf
its buying an independent line,
such as the Spreckels road when
comDleted. if it so desired. It
will be remembered that the San
Joaquin Valley division of the
Santa Fe was originally intended
to be an independent line, and,
as such, farmers, merchants and
others subscribed, largely to its
stock. When completed, how
ever, this line was turned over
to the Santa Fe.
The Spreckels road will aid in
the development of the extension
of the Imperial valley in Mexico,
which constitutes a principality
that,- properly developed, is the
richest land on the continent. Its
continuation in the United States
shows what the valley is capable
of when watered.
Justice For Women Teachers.
The movement to equalize the
payment of salaries to men and
women teachers for equal work
has become so widespread that
it demands serious attention.
Such N a principle has already
been established in Buffalo and
Chicago, and itjs being consid
ered in New York and Philadel
phia. It appears that we can
look forward to a not very dis
tant time when women teachers
will no longer suffer from unfair
The wonder is, not that this
movement is coming, but that it
has been so lone on the way. If
the present system is based upon
the alleged superiority of meu as
teachers, it hasn't a very long
life ahead of it. There are un
doubtedly some school situations
that are handled better by men
but there are more where women
are superior and there are many
in which men are of no more use
than they would be at making
dollies. The idea that it costs
men more to live than women is
probably a survival of the old
theory that man is the natural
provider and woman the idle re
cipientof all material blessings
Since teachers, are self-support
ing, and often family -supportin
there isn't a great deal in that
contention. The only argument
that cannot be answered is the
very practical one that the mas
culine teacher votes and the fern
inine does not, and it is the vot
ers who fix salaries.
It will be a bright day for edu
cation when the women teacher
get as much pay as the men and
the men get as much as they de
serve. If we were more ideal
istic and less practical we would
express the hope that all teach
ers' salaries will be raised until
the molders of the character of
the coming generation are as
well paid as the layers of brick
