THE PREMIUM LIST
.PREPARED SEVERAL THOUSAND DOLLARS TO BE GIVEN AWAY IN PRIZES AT EXPOSITION. Spokane, WasB., March 13.-The pre limlinry prentmum list for the Jntern& tional t)ry Farming exposition which will be held Octotber 8 to 8 In connec tion with Fifth Dry Farming Congress In .Spokane, prepared by Professor W. II. Olin of Colorado, superintendent of premiums and awards of the exposl lion, provides for premiums afgregIt itng several thousand dollars In. value. A number of hand-Nome trophy Oups will be' awarded in the sweepstakes and special classes and cups and cash prizes in the general classes, which ,o'Ver every fiekl of agriculture In the dry farming regions. Ample provision Is made for' the competitors from countries and provinces outside the United States, as the exposition, like the congress, is international and em brace. every country whede dry farm Ing Is practicable. Thirty-two sweep stakes premiumns in the general exhi bits and special classes alone are of fered fTor international competition. More tihan 200 lots of prodtucts are namned in the classified agricultural Salud horticultural divisions. Exhibitors at the exposition will have ant opportunity to compete for two sets of prenmiulms. The Bpokane Interstate. fair will take place October , to 8 on the same grounds, but in sep alrtse bhildlngs, and dry farmers will be permitted to enter exhibits in.both events. There will be $8,500 In cash premiums offered by the fair associa tion and dry farm exhibltoralmaycom pete for these by bringing double samples,.one to be shown In the ex position and, the other in the fair. Rules governing the Dry Farming exposition are being formulated by braces every country where dry farm Ing expositions, the rule hen been to restrict exhibits to prodttuts grown without irrigation, sub-irrigation or seepage In regions of not more than 20 inches annual precipitation. This rtln has been, found inadequate, as it bars farmers In some regions from participating In the cotpetittldi. There are parts of Oklahoma and other west ern states where the annual preelpl tation Is more than 20 inches, accord ing to the weather hureau records, but which are essentially dry farming dis tricts because the distribution of the rainfall throughout the year, the high rate of evaporation, or other climetic phenomena make dry farming meth ods necessary to the succestful pro ductlon of crops on a commercial scale. Hence a modification of the rules was deemed advisable this year. Professor Olin is working on this problem. It has b efi suggested that the ntet precipitailon available for r~1 ng crops be 'mae the basis in de t tAi ih'ui tsh classlficatTon of dio n trlets as dry or humild.farming terrl tory. To arrive at the net available pre.lpitation, it is necesary to cobnld er the total annual rainfall, its month ly distribution and the rate of evap loration. Professor Olin believes in generally retainitg the 20-inch max Inum precipitaltion In defining dry farming areas, but with such modifi cations that will permit bona fide dry farmers in distinctly dry farming dis trlets to compete on equal terms with the dry farmers In regions most defll elent in annual precipitation. ONE MILLION DOLLARS FOR A GOOD STOMACH THIS OFFER SHOULD SE A WARN ING TO EVERY MAN AND WOMAN. t'he newspaper and medical Journals have had much to say relative to a famous inillionaire's offer of a million dollars for a new stomach. This great multl-millionaire was too busy to worry about the condition of his stomach. He allowed his dys pepsia to run from bad to worse until In the end it became Inourable. His mlsfortune shoulld serve as a warning to others. .iveryone wh4ufflters with dyspepsia for a few yerj will give everything he owns for a ew stotn. ech. Dyspepsia is caused by an abn6rmal state of the gastric Juices. There is one element mlssing.-pepain. The absence ,of this destroys the funotiolo of the gastric fluids. They lolpe their power to digest food. We are now able to supply the pepsin in a form almost identical to that naturally created by the system when in normal health, so that it re . tores, to the gastric Juices their di gestive power, .and thus makes the stomach strong Ahd well. We want everyone troubled with in digestion and dyspepsia, t~itome to our store and obtain a box of Rexall Dyspepsia Tablets. They contain Blsmuth-Hubnitrate and pepsin pre pared by a process which develops their greatest power to overcome digestive disturbance. Rexall Dyspepsia Tablets are very pliasgnt to ot ke.

E. J. Lamb brings definite word of a great ice gorge at the mouth of Burns creek, which has backed the water up for miles and Is apparently forcing the Yellowstone to seek a new channel, fuly a mile to the north of its reglu lar bed. At 6 o'clock last Friday evening the ice broke up, and ineide three-quarters of an hour the water was from i to 16 feet all over the Yeagy bottom. Don Lamb, who was occupying the place Just opposite the schoolhouse, with ICd Corn, had barely time to get to higher ground with his stock, being obliged to swim his team across one draw. His house was flooded, and he has since been camping on the hills. He lost about 25,000 feet of lumber together with a lot of house logs and 1.200 fence posts. 0 David Davis, who occupies the did Yeagy place just under the 'hill, was the 'heaviest loner. He and his wife escaped with only the clothing on their backs. Their hocue Aw shows only about three feet above water. The losses of Mr. Davis incltde three hogs, 12 or 15 youln pigs, $4600 worth of grain, together with clothing and furnishings in the house. Sulnday evening they l}moved up to thie old Noble place. Wren & treenouglh's railroad camp No. 4, located in the "V" of the rail road grade and the ditch, is a total loss, with a large amount of commis sary stores. The occupants of camp No. 2 were warned In time to escape, but they had to swim their mules. The gorge still stands, according to latest report; and may last for weeks. R. S. Stockton, engineer in charge of the government project. Is working to hold the main canal bank intact near the schoolhouse. The water has been working into the railroad grade, and has washed away more than a quarter of a mile of grade trestle. The river presents a sheet ol water a mile and a half wide, and it is feared it will permanently seek a new channel, especially if the gorge stands long. Seven years ago a similar gorge oc curred at the same place, at which time the Stewart school was picked up and carried a mile and a half. It was carted back to its original location by Mr. Lamb, and was then placed above the ditch. OBJECT TO THE SALE OF LIQUOR. INDIANS OF NiZ PERCE TRIBE TAKE STAND AGAINST THE TRAFFIC. Spokane, Wash., March 13.-Indians of the Nes Perce tribe in northern Idaho have taken a stand against open liquor selling and no-called "bootleg ging" that is sure to be a factor in the local option elections. Reports received in Spokane from the Clearwater and Snake river districts says that the church-going Indians have joined the forces at Kamlah to work among their fellows in the fight against liquor and there is every indication that their in fluence will be felt , throughout Nes Perce and Idaho counties. More than 800 red men identified with the Nez Perce Temperance club attended the meet at Kamlah to form plans for the registering of the enfranchised members of the tribe and secure their presence at the eleetiob. The meeting, which lasted until 2 o'clock in the morning of March 6, was addressed by Samuel Cone, special government officer; Rev. James Hayes., pastor of the church, a Car lisle graduate, and other prominent campaigners. Mr. Cone required the services of an Interpreter, but the oth ers spoke in the Nos Perce tongue and a statement by Mr. Hayes, who said that during the recent local option campaign in Idaho county the saloon keepers tried to prevent the registra tion' of Indians, "because they did not have sense enough to vote right," cre ated a sensation. Seventy:persons in the audience were residents of Idaho county, but they promised to remain in Nea Perce coun ty'until after the election to assist in getting out the voters. The most telling speech of the even in$ was made by John Cook, one pf the bldest members of the tribe, whp said that all the troubles between the Indians and the whites, including the Neo Perce war In 1877-78, led by Chief Joseph for the Indians and General O. O. Howard with the United States sol diers, was caused by whiskey supplied to the Indians,. ON HIS WAY BACK. New York, March 13.-Dr. Frederlek A.

SINNY JIM'S WATCH" MAKES TROUBLE THE.AIRIRAKIR STICK AND THE COMBINED TALENT OF FOUR DEPARTMENTS FAIL. "The hose is froe." "No, the release is stu'ikt." "There's something wrong with the lever." "That ain't what's the matter; the piston travel isn't long enough." "Throw on the emergency once and see how she works; she's choked somewhere." These were a few of the suggestions which were offered to "Runny Jim" by the consulting experts .who drop. ptd in to see him the other afternoon at Northern Pacific headquarters and to advise him in relation to the re habilitation of a watch which he had taken apart just to see what made the wheels go around. "Rlunny Jim" was mire that all the parts were there, hilt there was some thing whng with the watch every time he got the parts assembled and he was compelled to tuke. the watch apart again and start all over with its reconstruction. It was a discourag ing Job. If advice had beenl worth anything, the watch would have been running as fast as the North Coast limited by this time., hilt the iquality of the counsel which was doped out to Jim was no good; it didn't help a bit. To go back to the beginning: Jim had a fine, full-Jeweled, sternwinding Waltham watch. Time was hanging heavy on his hands the other after noon and it made him tried to see the hands of the watch so busy ail the time. The spring breezes had made Jim indifferent to work and he became curious to know what it was that made the hands 'If the watnch work so steadily, regardless of weather, snowslldem or washouts. lie began cautiously, taking out one part at a time and replacing it be fore he endeavored to discover the secret another part might conceal. Working in this way, he was able to conceal the watch whenever anybody came into the office. But one day, when he was earnestly engaged-this was after he had found it necessary to take out more than one part at a time-there arrived simultaneously at the offlce delegates from the shops, the road department, the superintendent's offlce, the train service and the wreck. Ing crane. Jim was caught with the goods. He couldn't say a word. There lie sat with the empty case, 437 little wheels, 23 feet of springs and a soft hammer and a jackknife. He looked up helplessly as his friends entered and Invited them to view the remains and see how natural they looked. lie explained that he had been try ing to regulate the piston travel, as he was confident there was something wrong with the air; in the effort to get the adjustment changed, the pack ing, had blown out and when. that had been fixed the engine brakes refuAed to work, although the train line was all right. "Iap the pipe with the soft ham mer," was the suggedtion of the road. master. "That'll start her." "She'll never stop dynamiting until you get her piston travel fixed," was the comment from the wrecking dp partment. "Let me go over and get a sledge." "Blow in it," was the advice of the stenographer, "At first, "Sunny Jim" was disposed to resent this interference as being irrelevant, immaterial and incom patible. But the more he worked over the restoration of the watch, the more he became convinced that he needed help from some source. Cautiously he tried the suggested remedies, but the problem became more grave every minute. Just as he was in the depths of despair the callboy came in. "Aw, send th' dam" thing to Draper," said he, as he viewed the perplexity of the crowd. And so it came about that there was a small box, marked "Valuable," in the eastbound express yesterday, ad dressed to 8. H. Draper, Inspector of Air Brakes, At. Paul, Minn. And a little child shall lead them. SINCERE FRIENDSHIP. Hamburg, March 13.-Addressing the East Asiatic society last evening Prince Henry of Prussia said that as a result of his visit to England he could assure them that Great Britain offered to Germany an honorable and sincere friendship. The idea of aggressive action, he added, was absent from the minds of those in the Britlgh government. That friendship, however, rested on reld procity and nothing must be omitted that might serve to strengthen the confidence of the'two nations in each other. CALHOUN IS MUM.
