SIGHTS OF THE FAIR IN EXHIBITION HALL Horticultural and Agricultural Display, Art hibits, Local Industrial and Mercantile Displays all Neatly Arranged Ex X' The big fair opened this morning and it is a source of satisfaction and gratification to the management to have the exhibit in the several de partments in as good shape as it is. There has been good work done by the exhibitors and the fair on its first day Is far removed from the usual rush and litter, apd air of incompleteness that generally marks the opening day. The several displays are not yet- com plete but they have taken on form and finish enough to verify the prediction that this will be the»bçst display of the resource* and industries of the Lewis ton, country ever ttt.nl» by the associa tion. Even a enrsarv ,rip through the main exhibition*hail - ill show to the observer the truth of the above asser tions.

Among the Racing Stables The meeting: opens with more than 150 horses in the racing stables and among them some of rite swiftest track and harness horses in the northwest circuit. Many noted stables cut Boise and Walla Walla to get in shape for I the Lewiston meeting, and if the weather continues favorable they favor extending the race meeting a week to ten days longer than advertised as this j is the last meet of the circuit ana-many of the horses will be wintered here. Several of the large stables were here last year, were well pleased with the management then and are anticipating a highly successful meet at this fair. The following are among the num ber present to attend the meeting, with complete stables and strings of racers: C. F. Tanner of Boise, with a stable of three fleet ones—Dr. Long, Come Again and Caligula, all thoroughbreds. Mr. Tanner has attended five fairs dur ing the season and will will take his string to California for the winter, where, among other races, he has en tered Dr. Long for the *10,000 Burns handicap.

King James on Sunday (lames. What will the -modern objectors to reasonable recreation on Sundays find more stirring than King James' "Book of Sports." published In 1018, wherein he laments the attempts of churlish fanatics to repress amusements Pit the first day of the week und says. "Our pleasure likewise is that after the end of divine service our good people be not disturbed, letted or discouraged from any lawful recreation, such as dancing (either men or womeni. arch ery for men, leaping, vaulting or any other such harmless recreations, no: from having of May games, Whitsun ales and Morris dances, and the setting up to Maypoles and other sports there with used, so as the same be had >:i due and convenient time without im pediment or neglect of divine service." And this, be It remembered.

SOME IMPRESSIONS ALONG THE WA The bold spirit of the '49-ers who braved danger and privation a half century ago to penetrate this inter mountain country stands out all along the way in vivid contrast with the journey of today in luxurious train. Four months then of footsore travel— four days now in a traveling home. A burden of detail is uninteresting. You have made the trip, and caught the changing shadows and sunshine of particular spot along the river and through boulder-bound Colorado. You appreciate that changes have been rung in hackneyed phrase of every charming bit of scenery from the land of the chink to the scene of the famous tea party. The music that charmed was heard only by yourself, and the picture the fairest was framed by the eye out of distant rock and fern and pine and shadow, and vanished before the attention of another could be called to its beauties. There granite I boulders hover dangeroüsly near the : track, balancing on toe or heel. Fancy i assists some queer prank of Nature j in the outline of a fisherman high up on the mountain, but the only bites he receives are the nips given him by Time, causing the granite to crumble into dust. Here and there imagination traces faces a_s well as forms—all very interesting to the observer, but lack mg ip personal concern when re counted at length. Changing the delights of the Rockies for thV Stiftung dust of the desert, the greatest irfigation problem the world can ever know compels one to a con templation of the wonderful benefits rcsulant from its solution. Home day Uncle Sam will drive his water wagon «ver- the 600,0*0 acres of vacant public lands of the United States, over one half of which, at the present time, is adapted for grazing purposes only. Wafer sufficient to irrigate 75,000,000 acres is now running to waste in the mountains of the West. One acre of irrigated land will support one person, and taking the average of five persons to a family, the question of what shall we do with our rapidly increasing population finds a ready answer. Arid lands in sixteen states to the acreage above mentioned are not worth one dollar per acre. An acre of irrigated land in any state can not be bought for less than fifty dollars, and in many states this same land under a per fected scheme of irrigation is selling at a much higher figure. The national irrigation fund now ! ! ' ! : • j j totals $16,191.83.6, and is being stantly increased by the sale of la, in the states entitled to such proce , for individual water developm« I Idaho has contributed $1,149,667. ! this sum $642.218 was added dur! j the past twelve mouths. The law p i vides, that 51 per cent, of the contril tion of each state shall be expend d within the state, and 49 per cent, sh 11 pass to the general irrigation fund. This great scheme of national ii gation is being worked out. Some d y happy homes will dot the desert. T e sand dune will disappear. City ai ï farm and school house from coast '-oast is not a fancy, but a possibili of the not very distant future. There is a "boom" time in the his ory of every town—a time when it peopled in a night, as it were, and ei periences a decline as A bubble pricke i by a pin. Lewiston is indeed fortun ate In having had its period of ' boom in the long ago. and fully recoverin therefrom before the stable foundatio of a permanent city was placed. Th wealth of mine and field and orchard will make Lewiston a city. Its prog. resslve merchants and monied titer will boost it. Its contented people wll advertise it by letter and drawn dealt*. jaiile people here. The climatic con* ditions will entice Jiere the whose life-work has Wen completed, and whose tendencies now are for peace and content in a city where life! is pleasant and its comforts and con- 1 venlences can be obtained. Lewiston is especially attractive the young man with a future to cat from his industry and ability. 3 city presents as many opportunit for success as in the days when I town had but a few hundred inha tants. A remarkable fact is that commercial failure is found In l history of the city. And the openir for new ventures are numerous tod Many lines are not overcrowded, a the man,-who reaches for success lijdustrioi^s habit and fair dealing v find Lewiston a splendid place for 1 capital and his abilities. Meanwhile the city is building : permanency. Paving and street ci and gas are conveniences but a shi time in the future. Capital is net very far behind Opportunity, and appropriate municipal motto for t city is suggested* In these . wore 'Watch Lewiston grow - ."
