Steifen, ft local druggist, recently found a neck lace of elk teetli on LaBonte creek, twenty miles southwest of town. It is supposed to have been washed from the grave of some noted Indian chief lo cated somewhere in that neighborhood. Tue string contains 132 teeth in an ex cellent state of preservation. Steffen has been offered $850 for the necklace, but refused, expecting to obtain a much better price. It has not been known that elk teeth were buried with the In dians who formerly inhabited this sec tion, and Steffen's discovery has caused a number of hunters to make prepara tions to systematically search Indian graves.

Announcement, has just been made of the opening to settlement of the first tract,ot land under the great irrigation «y- bun of the Twin Falls Land & Water company in Idaho. General Manager Walter G Filer of the com pany lias been advised that the State Band Board of Idaho had decided to throw open (ill.000 acres under the com pany's canals and would make an offi cial announcement right away. HOW TO SKcntt; lands. The lands will be made available for public entn under the terms of the Carey act on and after July 1st next. The 00,000 acres are located along the Snake river in Linroin and Cassia coun ties. Idaho, and tracts not to exceed 100 each may be secured by settlers. Al though entries cannot be made prior to July 1, t lie selection may be made by the intending set tlers in advance of the opening, subject to the approval of the Idaho land hoard The method of entry will doubtless be that usually followed in such eases, namely, a rush to the land office, and the first man in lino in the Shoshone land office on the morning of July 1 will get the first selection, the second man will get the second choice and soon. It is expected that the rail roads will announce special excursions on the occasion of the opening. Tln> (ill,000 acres come within the vast area to lie watered by the Twin Falls Laud & Water company, and set tlers who secure claims will begin to receive irrigation water next spring. COST OF LAND AND WATER. To locate the lands will require a cash payment of $3.25 per acre. The fee to the state of Idaho is 50 cents, of which one-half must be paid down. The irrigation company's initial foe is $3. the balance of $22 per acre to lie paid at certain intervals during the next ten years. A fter .-.'5 has been paid the settler owns a perpetual right to the water. The settlers are given the sole control of the canal after one-half the water rights have been purchased by the consumers. It is estimated that after the canal is completed and all the lands are under cultivation the "main tenance fee" will lie not to exceed 20 cents annually, while elsewhere in Ida ho and Utah today the average is said to he $1 per annum for maintenance. GIGANTb UNDERTAKING. This is regarded as the biggest under taking of like nature ever incepted in the United States, and can scarcely fail to appeal seriously to the govern ment ( llieials and the great multitude of agriculturists in the west now ap plying th'-mselves tu the study of irri gatiiin as it is exemplified in this region. There are two main canals in the sys tem ot the Twin Falls Land & Water company for the reclamation and pen pling of the vast empire under its sys tem which embraces 270,000 acres. One of these canals has a width of eighty feet and a depth of ten feet. The other is twenty six feel wide and six feet deep. The system when completed will comprise neai ly loot) miles of canals and laterals. MEANS MUCH TO UTAH. The opening of this land to entry means much, not to Idaho alone, bnl for Idaho's neighbors, more particular ly Utah. The sel f lenient of the 00,000 acres means thousands of new citizens for Idaho will) a corresponding gain in wealth and importance for the state Salt Lake is now regarded as the great distributing point for Idaho, and Salt Lake and Utah ran therefore he regard ed ns certain to profit by the access of people made possible in the adjoining state l>\ tlm gigantic undertaking of the Twin Falls Land A Water com puny.
