Miss Maud Hanly recited an Easter poem in a pleasing manner. Edward Mason and Neil Mallison each read selec tions.

The flower committee distributed pack ages of flower seeds to be planted, the flowers to Ik? given sick juniors and also gather them for decorating the church.

I he n There is no longer any reason able doubt that Admiral Dewey is being pushed for the Presidency by that w ing of the Democraric party that is opposed to Bryan, and will do anything within its power to prevent his nomination. The fact that goldbug papers in Ohio, Texas and New York have pronounced for him, is accepted as evidence of this fact. It seems probable that the Admiral made his announce ment without giving notice to any one, hut it is more evident that his cause has been taken up by the gold men. There is something curi ously impractical about his candi ture. There is related as a fact that he and Mrs. Dewey both sup posed at first that all that was nec essary was to distribute ballots with the Admiral's name on them on election day, and that the people would do the rest. Afterwards, when convinced that a more elabo rate plan was nectssary, he pro posed to form a committee, compris ing men of both political parties who would organize his campaign on a free trade, gold, Democratic platform with Theodore Roosevelt as a running mate. Meanwhile, he and M rs. Dewey are having a lovely time. The editor and the photographer are alike in one respect.

P- AKE. • • Proprietor Wonderful Idaho. lier the Tne following is one of a series of letters now being published in 2720 weekly and semi-weekly newspapers in the Mississippi valley states under the direction of the Oregon Short Line Railroad. It is an excellent descrip tion of the resources of Idaho in a few words. The railrosd company is do ing more extensive advertising for Idaho than the people here are gener ally aware of : Criticise the Mormons as you will, they mnst be credited with the wonder ful system of irrigation by which the wastes of the western states have been redeemed. On July 24,1847, Brigham Young and his little band of pioneers began the construction of tne first ir rigation canal ever built in the United States. Irrigation made of Utah's desert wilderness the garden spot of America. It is doing as much for Idaho where the mountains are so located that am ple valleys and plains of millions of acres may be easily and economically watered. On the Nile, in Italy, Spain and elsewhere in Europe, irriga lion has prevailed for centuries. Indeed, 60 per cent of the world's bread-stuffs and cereals are grown by irrigation. Where "the vine-clad hill and cit ron groves" around Vesuvius in sunny Italy are found, a great population has been sustained for many thousand years—and the 'and has never worn out—its wonderful vitality being due to underlying strata of lava which by some curious chemistry renders the soil immortal. Idaho's wonderfully productive soil covers lava strata deposited by volca noes long ago extinct. The rejuvena tion of the land results not alone from this lava, but from rich fertilizers annually brought to it by the irriga tion waters. It is almost an aphorism, land is good wnere sage brush grows. Wheat, corn, oats, barley, alfalfa, tim othy, rye, flax, tobacco, broom corn, sorghum, sweet and Irish potatoes, beets, cabbage, hops and fruits, such as prunes, apples, pears, plums, pea ehes, cherries, apr cots, nectarines, grapes and all of the small bush products grow profusely. Particular ly do the apple, pear and prune at tain to perfection in size and flavor. Alex McPherson of Boise City, re alized $600 per acre from apples. Geo. P. Hall of Mountain Home sold $800 worth of peaches from one acre. T. J. Phifer of Boise City, realized $900 from two acres of Italian prunes. In stances like these can be multiplied ad infinitum. But Idaho does not depend entirely u on agriculture. Its mountains are filled with mining camps which fur ii sh a home market for far more agri cult, urd products than the state is now aide to produce. Snake river valley contains about 3,000,000 seres and some of the finest pastoral scenes there presented are in the midst of gold placer mining opera tions. Many fanners there realize handsomely for work during spare honrs—washing shining powdered gold from the river's bed. In a state having so many product ive portions to select from it is hard to suggest particular locations but set tiers will find room for any number of new Domes. Different slate and private agencies are sending out printed information about Idaho. Perhaps the most con servatively prepared matter is that now eniRnat ng from the general passenger agent of the Oregon Short Line at Salt Luke City, Utah. This railroad permeates almost every agricultural region in the state and stands ready to furnish to homeseekers every courtesy in the power of fts officers At the present rule Idaho will soon be as tnickly populated as Utah. It is in the same latitude as France, Switz erland, Portugal, Spain and Italy, and its climate is incomparable. Vast timber areas furnish lumber of excellent quality. Cyclones and destructive storms never occur. The winters are short and people work out doors all the year. The annual death rate is the lowest of any state in the Uuion. Verily Idaho is a wonderful state and destined to become the home place of many times its present population. no she in one an an at in F.

The democrats are enjoying the predicament of the Republicans in regard to the report of Judge Magoon, law officer of the War Department. For the past month, the Repub licans have been quoting from the "masterly, scholarly and learned'' opinion submitted by Judge Magoon, declaring that Congress possesses plenary power over the new jiosses sions, the Constitution to the contrary notwithstanhing. Now it appears that Judge Magoon had prepared an ear lier opinion (which was accepted by the War Department and by the Pres ident when he wrote his "plain duty" message), alleging in equally learned, equally scholarly, equally masterly language, that the Constitution ex tends by its own vigor to the islands and that they were parts of the United States.
