E. A. Olden, su perintendent of the park, was laid off for the winter, was laid off, and also one of the street sprinklers. be done by the city to make the penses conform to the revenue. Mark Murtaugh, who has been One night watchman Everything possible will ex very active and efficient in the superintend ency of the sewer system, tendered his resignation from the commission. The resignation was accepted and the ancy was filed by the appointment of Attorney W. P.. Guthrie. In compliance with the demand for fire protection the city ordered twenty five JCddy fire hydrants which will cost $36.75 each, laid down in this city. These plugs will he placed about the city in a manner to cover nearly all of the residence portion. The Reiss Carnival company having asked for permission to use the streets for next week were charged a license of $100. Owing to the many objections about having livery stables on the main thor oughfares the council deemed it essary to pass an ordinance forbid ding any livery stable or other busi ness of similar nature anywhere Main avenue or in any district north of 4th avenue south. One year was given all livery stables to comply with ordinance.

The council passed upon and allow ed the usual number of bills and ad journed to meet at call of Mayor Voigt. vac nec on on V. A. Marshall, F. W. Wright, Geo.

Marshall for that camp, where they expect to spend several weeks looking over their pro perties and prospecting. The gentle men have great faith in that camp and think it will be one of the best in the west as soon as a railroad reaches there. a THE BIG CARNIVAL. Perhaps one of the best-known and most popular showmen on the Ameri can continent at the present time is Nat Reiss, the carnival king of the west, who will supply the amusement of the street fair and agricultural hibit in Twin Falls next week. Judging from the press of Salt Lake and Ogden, where the ex „ company sup plied the amusements for the State Fair and Big 4 county fair, respec tively, Nat Reiss has this season the largest aggregation of carnival fea tures that have ever appeared In the west. There are in excess of three hun dred people with the company, and it requires a special train to transport them from town to town. Judging from the interest displayed by the people of this vicinity in the street fair and agricultural exhibition, it will be the biggest affair of Its kind that has ever taken place in this city. There are fifteen shows with the company this year In addition to the old fashioned one ring circus, and the free attractions are of the dare devil sensational, death defying order. Chief among the free act that will be presented on the street twice a day will be the double high dive by a cou ple of small dogs. These little can ines climb to the top of a seventy five foot ladder and at the crack of the pistol in the hands of their mas ter they dive into the net below. But without a doubt the premier Act of the company is Volo in his sensational bicycle act. This exhibition is of the death defy ing order and every time that Dare Devil Volo makes this ride he virtually takes his life in his hands. Among the many shows with the company this year might be mentioned the Merry Widow girls, introducing a bevy of handsome young ladies in musical comedy, Wallace the man eating Hon, The Minstrels or the Sunny South be .v.*:*: .•/«•;•: ttfn > fore the war. Lunette the lady who flies, floats and dances in mid-air. It is said of this show that the manager has to attach weights to this young lady during the time the exhibition is not in progress in order to hold her to terra flrma. This is one of the most mystifying, as well as one of the most attractive on the entire midway. There will also be seen Salome, dancing before the head of John the Baptist, Pickinauny, the little pony with the human brains, who does everything but actually talk. This lit tle fellow is the pet of the children wherever the company shows, and they attend his performance time an again. One of the features of the car nival this year will be the carry-us us-all. This amusement divice is built on the nature of the old fashioned merry-go-round, but for fun, sport and amusement, head and shoulders above the old design. Instead of the horses on the carry us.all being stationary as in ^ie old time riding device, they are all of the jumping variety, and are a distinct novelty in every way. It is a certainty that when the im mense tented city is set up in Twin Falls, the people of this locality will experience something in the amuse ment line the like of which they have never seen before, and it is a fore-gone conclusion that the largest number of people ever seen in the city at one time will be on the streets during the stay of the carnival company. Rates of one fare for the round trip will be in effect on the railway for the Mini doka branch, and the slogan for the entire week will be (Fun for every body.)
