“On Aug. 9 the drawing will begin
for the different reservations at Couer
d’Alene. No particular tract of land
will be assigned to any person, but the
person who draws No. 1 will have first
choice of all the lands in the reserva
tion' for which he draws. No. 2 will
have second choice, and so on. The
plan of the drawing is an absolutely
fair one. After applications for reserva
tion have been sworn to they will be
enclosed and sealed in an envelope bear
ing the printed address of the superin
tendent. There will be nothing on the
envelope to indicate the name of the
applicant. Each envelope presented
will look exactly like every other en
velope. At the time of the drawing
these envelopes will be thoroughly
mixed before the public and then se
lected indiscriminately one at a time,
and the application* contained in the
selected envelopes will be numbered in
the order in which they are selected.
These numbers will control the order
in which the lands may be chosen.
“Notices will at once be mailed to
the successful applicants, informing
them of some date after April 1, 1910,
on which they may select and enter
their land. All these lands will be
classified and appraised, and must be
paid for at the appraised value. One

E. H. Harriman, the railroad king,

It will be a sun parlor overlooking
Central Park, and is expected to prove
one of the most unique of the palatial

Regarding the project the Now York
Herald says:
“Plans are being prepared for a so-]
larium to replace the fifth story of the;
David Dows mansion at the northeast ,
corner of Fifth avenue and Sixty-ninth I
street, recently reported sold by Mrs. j
Dows for about $1,000,000.
“Although the identity of the pur
chaser has never been officially an
nounced by any of the parties to the
transaction, it is understood that E. ]
H. Harriman is responsible for the pro-1
posed alteration and many others, and
will move from his present home at
No. 874 Fifth avenue and into his new i
mansion about December I.’’
In the effort to provide better care
for female prisoners a bill will prob
ably be introduced in the next legisla
ture by Bexar county members giving
the power to commissioners’ courts in
thickly populated counties to employ
matrons for county jails.
Judge Phil Shook is greatly interest
ed in such a measure and made an ef
fort to secure its passage at the last
session. The need of a matron has
often been felt at the Bexar county
jail, but from lack of authority to do
so none has ever been appointed by
the commissioners. Many women pa
tients are confined there fsgm time to
time. Some arc insane, are unable to
care for themselves, even to putting
on their own clothes and must be look
ed after by male guards. The same is
true in most counties.
Conditions with regard to the-care
of insane and sick patients at the coun
ty jail and county poor farm will be
greatly helped by the additions which

to is just completing a gin that any
town in the state could well be proud
of. This gin is situated near the rail
road, is equipped with the most mod
ern machinery, and* offers facilities to
the farmers that very few places have.
The managers of this gin are Messrs.
E. N. Green, manager, and H. A. Paine,
assistant manager. Mr. Paine is the
eon of the well known hardware and
machinery man of Houston, H. A.
Paine, Sr. and as far as machinery
goes, they are right there with the
‘ ‘ goods. ’ ’
In speaking to yonr reporter this
morning Mr. Paine said: I believe for
its size there is no other gin in the
state that can compare with it. It is
fitted up with the most modern machin
ery, and we will be in position by July
1 to do business. The gin is also pro
vided with a fine storm proof house,
with individual cotton rooms. Some
farmers are somewhat reluctant about
disposing of their cotton, when they
are so far removed from a large town
that, they eannot get the market re
ports, believing that they lose some
thing in the price, and for this reason
we have arranged with the Houston Cot
ton Exchange to give us three market
quotations each day, during the period
that wo arc running, so that the far
mers will have the advantage of know
ing the stati of the market just as if
they were in elose proximity to a large
cotton market.’’
