Senator Wayman is in Town.
He talks interestingly about Twin Falls and other large enterprises. Senator W. M. Wayman, of New Plymouth, was a caller on Monday. He has rented his farm and is now de voting his time to the interests of the Northwestern Investment Co., of which he is vice president and land examiner. The company has large interests in the Twin Falls town site, and are tak ing an important part in pushing to the front that city of destiny. Mr, Wayman spoke in glowing terms of the development that is now under way at Twin Falls, and the surround ing country, and especially praised the enterprise of the farmers in taking hold so resolutely under conditions so entirely new to most of them. He highly complimented Superintendent A. McPherson, who is directing agri cultural operations for the land and irrigation company, and said his ser vices were proving immensely valu able to the farmers there. Quite an acreage was put in this season, not withstanding the lateness of the date in getting the land in shape, and the irrigation ditches constructed, and he said that the rains during the season had been a great help to the new farmers. ' Mr. Wayman's company has large landed interests at various points both in and out of the state. On Wood River, near Bellevue, they have a 400 acre stock and hay farm, where they expect to cut 1100 tons of hay this season. This will be fed to stock the coming winter and spring. They have also a section of land in North Dakota, and a quarter section in the Boise Valley near Beatty. The senator said he had just closed the contract for clearing a half sec tion of land on the Emmett bench, which is to be watered by the Canyon County canal. His company contem plates testing the virtues of alfalfa on range lambs, by feeding a bunch of perhaps 10,000 next winter at New Ply mouth. In speaking of a recent trip by wag on, of nearly 800 miles through the Burns region, of Oregon, Mr. Way notorious, jus, the same, and when he got back to New Plymouth, the grass " looked greener, the leaves on the trees . , bigger and glossier, and even the sage brush smelt better. Mr. Wayman is a thorough believer in Idaho, and is a valuable man to have engaged in helping to develop man said he made an average of 45 miles a day, and saw a big stretch of range country, but it got a little mo Its manifold resources.

Paris green, arsenate of lead and all other materials that kill by being eaten are of abso lutely no use against these little suck ing pests. They can be reached only by contact poisons, which act through the spiracles, or breathing pores, at the aides of the body. There are two kinds of contact poi sons—those that act mechanically by clogging the pores and those that pen etrate Into the body and poison direct ly. Soaps are clogging In character, and so are oils In general, but the pe troleum oils are Internal Insecticides T 1 * wr :> 4 : . a k$ IW' ï U m mm ■jj ■■'.V :}y, ib: I » V:l IV m m ■jfS m f/.ftSVi W; ■/. v ■ 73 •ÿÇy ;ÿiS 1 ''fl & ■/...
