Aug. 15.—The Statesman says C p Thomas, of Tu in Falls, for merly of Nez Perce eountj, the sptci U Agent of the state land department at ^ ^ the Cassia county town, arrived In th* ^ clty yesterday afternoon to report upon i the sale of school land held on Mon dav and to cohsuit regarding state a land matters with the officiais here for , a few days He will likely return to , Twin Falls before the end of the week. Mr Thomas reports the sale to the promoter* of the proposed Buhl town site. about 12 miles west of Twin Falls, on the day of the celebration, but the people were generally too busy to at tend the sale of lands, and practically nothing was sold except the tract of school lands to be vised as the town site. Messrs. Pickel. Crltehlow. DeLong and others of the Twin Falls com panv, are the men behind the new fownsite. so Mr. Thomas states, and I are the ones who hid in the land. Con sidering the slight attention given the; sale, the land brought good prices. | some pieces bringing »' high as $45 per acre for sagnhrush land with an additional $15 per acre to be paid for water right. None of the land sold for less than $20 per acre, the average he- ( tng between $!5 and $3'V | Mr. Thomas states there was a big crowd at the railroad celebration at Twin Falls, and that a fine time was had. Speeches were delivered by Senator Heyhnrn. Congressman French. Attorney Crltehlow and Major Reed, those bv the two representatives in congress being especially able and brilliant. In driving from Twin Falls to Sho-i shone after the celebration Monday evening. Mr Thomas and the other travelers who made the trip overland I with him. witnessed the novel sight of , the stream going over Shoshone falls bridged by a plank. The water In the river, he states,Is exceptionally low, there having been nothing like it with in the memory of white men familiar with the region. The entire water goes over the falls from a channel perhaps 10 feet wide and eight or nine feet deep A short distance up the river, where the ferry is located, the stream is quite broad, as well as deep, forming a pond from which the outlet leads to the falls. Notwithstanding the extreme low water. Mr. Thomas says there is an abundance of water In the mammoth canals of the Twin trails company. There Is perhaps five feet of water in the big ditch across Ils entire width, and there is water to run It to feet deep if that much were required t.v farm ers. or it was deemed advisable to run the ditch bank full before it gets thor oughly settled. The entire country is prosperous, .and is fast being reclaimed bv the energetic citizens who have gone there to make their homes. Within a year or two there will he no trace rf sage brush and trees and shrubbery of every description will he abundant.

Throughout the week the tempera ture remained high in all parts of the vl . lte an( j precipitation was confined to ^ j ew j oca i showers, only in a very few instances heavy enough to be of ma ter j a j benefit to vegetation. Some high w j n( j s occurred, doing slight local dam a ^ e to fruit and shade trees. Water con tinues to fall, the present stage of ^ an y streams being the lowest ever known Crops. Fruit—Excessive hot weather, to gether with shortage of water for ir rigation in some localities, is having an adverse effect, arid will probably re duce the general yield somewhat; in dividual orchards, however, where pro per care has been given, promise fair to good yields. Blackberries are not so plentiful in the warmer valleys as they were a week ago. while peaches, peach plums and apples are becoming more abundant; packing for shipment w toon become active, Grain—Rapid ripening of small grain | s resulting from the hot weather in sections where the crop is not already mature, and harvest is progressing as Vapidly as possible; this rapid ripening will cause some reduction of the yield ( n many localities, but the total crop will probably exceed the average; thh j« especially true In many eastern lo calities, and of fall wheat In the north ern portion of the state; threshing Is making good progress In the northern and southwestern grain growing dis tricts. Hot weather is of great benefit to eorn. which is earing well. Grass—Water Is falling, so rapidly that there w 11 he very little third crop alfalfa harvested, and the yield from the second cutting in many instances Is considerably reduced. though In fields where water has been abundant a good yield is secured Only a small acreage of second crop clover w ill corne to maturity. There Is still fair to good feed In the higher mountains, hut grass has become so short on the lower range that in some instances stock is suf fering. Vegetables and Melons—Favorable reports continue to be received relative to the condition of sugar beets, there being few exceptions to theh general rule. An effort Is being made to save save water for late notatoes and gar den vegetables, and these crops will probably not suffer greatly in irrigated sections.

Moscow Official Must Answer the Alleged Charge of Receiving Money Moscow. Idaho, Aug. 16.—At the council chambers here last evening before the mayor and council. City Clerk W. G. Barge, on behalf of Charley Lindermann, formerly an engineer at the city water works preferred charges of bribery against H. N. Ziegler, for merly an engineer at the same plant. Neither party is now connected with the plant, Mr. Llndermann having re cently resigned and Mr. Ziegler having been discharged a little over a morjth ago. The bribe Is charged to have been taken by Ziegler fu m Lee Guy. a wood dealer, who for the past years been furnishing the city with vend, upon the consideration that the for should so fraudulently measure the wood sold by Guy to the city that ■would secure a credit for a larger amount than that delivered and sold. Mr. Barge made a long statement relating to the affair. The .announcement came like a thun derbolt from a clear sky to the city council and the were of the unanimous opinion that an Investigation should Immediately be made and steps are now being taken In that dlrec'ioa. The results of the investigation are °ageilv awaited by the citizens here for both parties are well known and more or less prominent. Mr. Ziegler is a resident of the city and NTr.

I I A DEEP SEA GLUTTON. nil Marla* Wlaard Can Swallow • ri»h Twlca Its Own Sis*. •That one animal can devour another twice Its own size at a single swallow la a statement that may seem as In credible as any fish story ever invent ed," writes Dr. Sanderson t'hristlson. "Nevertheless It la true of oert^i fish es. So far as known such fishes are In habitants of the deep seas, where utter darkness perpetually prevails, with an unvarying temperature almost as cold aa Ice and a pressure ranging, accord ing to depth, from a quarter to three or four tons upon every square Inch of fhelr body surface. The deep sea la commonly regarded as commencing where the rays of sunlight cease to penetrate, which is estimated to be less than 1,200 feet below the surface, and may extend to twenty times that dis tance or even much more, down to the bottom of the ocean. Fishes have been dredged from below 12,000 feet. "A deep sea fish, the Chlasmodus nl gar, six and five-eighths of an Inch long, has been found to have swal lowed another fish ten and a half Inch es long. The stomach of the devourer la stretched as thin as gold beater's skin. It has sharp, hooked teeth, which cross each other from opposite sides of the mouth and usually point backward. According to Gunther, the fish after having seized Its victim with Its capa cious and very movable Jaws partly presses it down as a snake would do and partly draws Itself over It. The prey is received into an esophagus and stomach the membranes of which are as extensible as an India rubber pouch, The stomach when empty Is contracted and folded up and projects but little below the abdomen. "When a deep sea fish is brought to the surface, how gradually and careful i soever, its bones are often like so much ■ touchwood and Its muscles like rotten pulp, while Its eyes are burst from its sockets and its viscera are often blowu out of the body cavity by the expan sion of the air bladder. It frequently happens that deep sea fishes are found floating helplessly on the surface of the ocean with large prey In their stomachs. Their appearance under these circumstances is accounted for by the efforts of their struggling vic tims to escape from their jaws, caus ing them to ascend beyond ibe horizon tal zone which they usually inhabit. "Deep sea fishes are commonly black or dark brown. Rut, although It Is claimed that light Is essential to the formation of colors, some deep sea fishes are scarlet in parts or uniform red or rosy. Others are silvery white, while, according to Alcoek, the ueo eopelus Is 'one dazzling sheen of pur ple and silver aud burnished gold, amid which Is a sparkling constellation of luminous organs.' " Whom the Gods Lot«. There are two standards of measure ment of human life—the one by years, the other by achievement. Measured by years. Sidney Lanier's life of less than twoscore was a brokep column; meas ured b*- achievement, hw life Is not yet ended—he Is immortal. Robert Burns died at thirty-seven, Byron at thlrty ■lx, Poe at forty, Raphael at thirty-sis, Lanier at thirty-nine. It Is whom the gods love die young. And yet who shall say that the Scottish plow boy, or the author of "Cbllde Harold," or he who sang of the "Raven," or the paint er of the "Transfiguration," or the com poser of "Centeunial Cantata," do not, one and all, still speak to us in voices whose echoes will command enraptur ed listeners away down the centuries? — Lippincott'». I i lauste Perverseness. The neighbors were discussing the peculiarities of an eccentric old resi dent. "I do think," remarked Mrs. Higgins, "that old Mr. Tlghtun Is the contrariest man on the face of the earth." "What's he doing now?" asked Mrs. Jogglps. "Doing? You remember he used to say that when he had accumulated $50.000 he was going to quit saving money—the old skinflint!—and aettle down to the enjoyment of It?" "Yes." "Well, he's actually done It!" Glass Bad Sunlight. Common clear glass left exposed In certain desert regions of the earth soon changes greatly In appearance and ac quires color, sometimes rose purple and sometimes amethyst. This change has been attributed by some observers to alkaline soils, but others maintain that such changes occur where there la no alkali and that It must be due to the great activity of the actinic raya of the atm where the atmosphere la very clear.
