Mountain Homs people are greatly interested in the visit be ing made this week by a party of nine eastern capitalists, who are taking considerable paius to learn at first hand the results of the several Twin Falls irrigation enterprises with a view to fur undertakings along that line. The party passed through here Monday ou No. 5, eu route to Boise, and returned to Twin Falls yesterday, staying only a few hours in the capital city. When interviewed at Boise, one of the party stated to a States man reporter that they are in Idaho at this time to look into the merits of a new irrigation project for southern Idaho, but lie refused to give any details as to the location or extent of the proposition. Local people, how ever, feel considerably elated over the prospect, for it is a well known fact that the teiritory around Mountaiu Home, com prising thousands of acres of the finest land in the state, has for some time been in the minds J of the Twin Falls promotes* as the next large tract to receive their attention. For some time a there have been more or less per sistent rumors that application for segregation of this tract was already before the stute land boaad and, while no authorita tive confirmation of the report can be obtained, the impression that it is a fact grows stronger daily. The renewed activity of surveying parties this side of the Clover Creek extension of the 1 win Falls-North Bide canal, coupled with the present visit from the representatives of tl eastern bonding have served only to strengtl this impression and it would not surprise anyone here if tl rumored segregation should be made in the near future. e companies ten ie ELECTRIC THEATER OPEN EVERY NIGHT Moving Pictures Being Shown at Hungerford's Hall—Safety of Visitors Is Assured.

HOME INDUSTRY THAT EMPLOYS HOME LABOR r .TO IRRIGATE WITH ARTESIAN WATERS Oklahoma Millionaire Will Put Down Six Inch Weil on Medbury Flat. Ed A. Page, formerly of St. Louis, who with his brother, a millionaire oil producer in Oklahoma, has acquired a con siderable quantity of land in the vicinity of Medbury during the past year, has decided to put down an artesian well on his property, and will commence operations the first of next week. The drilling machine is of the same make as that now in use on the Hein & Chattin ranch at Grandview, and is guaranteed to go down 2,000 feet. * The well will be drilled at a point two miles southwest of the flowing well of the 0. S. L, at Medbury, and at an eleva tion 200 feet higher. Mr. Page ' states that competent engineers have estimated that, judging by the flow of the railroad com pany's well, a six-inch well, like that Mr. Page proposes to drill, will irrigate at least two hun dred acres of land from its con tinuous How during an irriga tion season, and if reservoirs are provided to store the win ter flow, this acreage can be largely increased- If Mr.Page's experiment proves a success, there is no doubt that other Medbury residents will have wells drilled.
