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. Mr. Tanner Has attended
every fair given by the association and
has confidence in the success of the

made the Mon.ana circuit and came

F. Rinehart is here again. He is well

fair and can he counted on to land
some of the good money in the asso

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. Is from the
man whom the translators of the au
thorized version of our Bible described
us tlu< "sun in bis strength." as on ■
who was "enriched with so many sin
gultt;• and txtraoi lit.,'try graces as to
be the wonder of t.Uc world in this lat

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
totals $16,191.83.6, and is being
stantly increased by the sale of la,

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
