It is almost definitely settled that

Fork will be installed. From the re

vey, $2,000,000 acres can bo irrigated
from this dam when it is completed.
The Bull's Head dam will be built,

Under a late ruling of the interior
department it is explained that the
government has withdrawn all lands
in the Salt river and Colorado river
valleys and no entry of these lands
can be made in the land offices.
Mining claims located on the lands
proposed to be used as a storage ba
sin will not' be recognized by the gov
ernment. In the valley of the Colo
rado river many sections of land have
been taken up by people who have
been making preten.te of homestead
ing the same and it is these people
that the government has been striking
at in the sweeping order withdrawing
the lands from entry. No interference
with the work of reclamation will be
brooked by Uncle Sam. Mohave Mi

Where there used to bo a feeling of
uneasiness and worry in the house
hold when a child showed symptons
of croup, there is now perfect con
fidence. This, is owing to the uniform
success of Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy in the treatment of that disease.
Mrs. M. I. Basford, of Poolesville,
Md., in speaking of her experience in
the use of that remedy says: "I have
a world of conlidenco in Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy for I have used
it with perfect success. My child Gar
land is subject to severe attacks of
croup and it always gives him prompt
relief." For salo by all druggists.
