A party of twenty-one Chicagoans, ladies and gentleman, spent Wednes day in Blackfoot. During the day eight of them made desert filings In the local land office, covering over 2,000 acres of land at American Falls. These parties will settle at the Falls and begin preparations at once for the enterprises they have under considera tion.

Evans, of Malad, Asylum Directors for his two years term. Mr. Costln was oue of tho first direc tors of that institution; ho always man ifested great pride In its management and succoas. and wilt, doubtless, give it alt tho personal attention it may de mand at his hands. Messrs J. M. Bennett and D. L. Ev hoth successful business men in a ans are their respective lines, woll known in tbe State, and their appointment, to gether with Mr. Costln, assures a thorough business administration for tho institution during their term of office. The Slate may congratulate the Gov on his excellent selection. by ernor How H r e Arc Taxed. The rate of taxation In Blalno coun ty outside of Hailey school district for the year 1896 was $7.40 on tho $100 val uation. In Halley It Is $7.90. According to the last census the total assessed valuation of all the property in tho United States Is slxty-flvo thou sand millions of dollar*. If the United States should levy a tax all ovor the country at tho sarno rate which is Imposed on Blaine county, the would be four To no of revenue for one year thousand, eight hundred and thirty millions of dollars—or ten times as much as tho present revenuo of the United Suites, and as much as tho on of tho civil war and about tiro cost double tho amount of tho national debt at the cose of the war! great United States has been to pay off that is to of and vlo to The trying for thirty years debt, and so far has only succeeded in paying alraut half of it, and yet most of our people work themselves Into paroxysms overy four years, or offener, over the question of federal taxai on. Still there are people who think it, unreasonable for the citizens of Blalno county to grumble about tholr tuxos.— llniley Times. Oregon Senatorehip. Salem, Oro., Jan. 27.~The only de velopment today in the legislative dead lock was the withdrawal of Misner, Democrat, from the Benson house. This leaves only 30 members in that house, one short of a majority. Misner's withdrawal came as a surprise to the Benson men, who are forced from the position that 31 members could organ ize and do business. There are other evidences of defec tion in the Benson house, and the pre diction is made that it will only live a few days longer. The final card was played to-day by its member when they passed a resolutions instructing the sergeant-at-arms to notify members com [»sing the organization to appear before the bar of the house to-morrow. These notifications were served to-night but they were treated lightly by mem bers, who say the Benson house has no way to bring them in for the reason they never qualified. It is doubtless the intention of the Benson men in the event the members do not appear to de clare their seats vacant. They will then bo confronted with the fact that the seats can be declared vacant only by the constitutional qtirorum of 40 members. In the present expectation of the Ben son house breaking down it ts the plan of the opposition to come in afterwards and effect their tempoary organization. It U hard to tell what effect this will have on Mitchell's candidacy. Those opposed say it will result in his defeat. On the other hand Senator Mitchell professes tobe very confident of re-elec tion. _ Friend iu Louelincaa und Trouble. of of Under the depot platform at Black foot is the lonely home and hiding place of two strange doge—one a beautiful white and brown Pointer, once some body's pet and the other a black and white specimen of the collie breed. For months past they have been the sole occupants of that dark hiding place and close companions in their loneli ness and trouble. Tbe Pointer Is re puted lobe a fine bunting dog, but is timid and cowardly now and refuses to hunt. Last year he was owned and pet ted by an old man, a deaf stranger in the country, who in the early summer was run down and killed by a switch engine at Pocatello. After the death of his master this Pointer returned to Blackfoot and made his home under the platform. His companion was tho property of a party traveling through tbe town and becoming lost from bis owner made the acquaintance of tho bereaved and heart broken Pointer and for months has been his only companion. These dogs arc in tbe deepest trouble and will not be comforted. Every ef fort to make their acquaintance or to pet them is denied and no temptation will induce them to follow any one away from their hiding place. During bright sunny days they come out and sleep in the sun and will not run from strangers but If approached and petted they will quickly retire to their hiding place. They positively decline to form any new acquaintances. Both dogs are fat and slick and show ability to care for themselves at un hours, but both are suffering it in seen from fright, nervous trouble and grief from which they will never recover. That was a graceful and magnani mous act of Mr. McKinley in discoun tenancing the proposed lstrap and dis play and reckless expenditure of money at the inauguration ball. Read bis let ter In another column. Notices have been posted at the Do Laraar mines, Owyhee county, giving information of a reduction of wages of miners, to go into effect the 11th of February. A feeling of uneasiness is manifested in the camp and a strike is feared. "Aren't you lato In getting home from Sunday school, Bobby?'' "Well, in a of for I guess!

Golden, Colo., Jan. 24.—As the train bearing a merry party that had attended the school of mines' dance, reached the outskirts of the city, at 1:30 o'clock this morning, it came to a standstill. The wheels went around, but the train did not move. All kinds of sand was poured on the track, but the velocity of the train was at the true zero mark. The engineer swore, the fireman cursed, but the train did not budge. A thick coating of grease had been applied to the rails for a dis tance of half a mile, and it was found necessary to wipe the track with waste, for the desert of Sahara did not con tain enough sand to permit progress. The train was an hour crawling over the slippery distance, and all day to day trains have been delayed on that section of the Lakewood. Who the practical jokers are, is not known. A Few Don'ts. Don't find fault. Don't believe all the evil you hear. Don't jeer at everybody's religious beliefs. Don't be rude to your inferiors in social position. Don't repeat gossip, even if it does interest a crowd. Don't underrate anything because you don't possess it. Don't go untidy on the plea that every body knows you. Don't contradict people, even If yon are sure you are right. Don't conclude that you have never had any opportunities in life. Don't believe that every one else in the world is happier than you. Don't be inquisitive about tbe affairs of even vour most intimate friends. Don't get into tbe habit of vulgariz ing life by making light of the senti ment of it. Don't express a positive opinion un less you perfectly understand what you arc talking about.—New York Ledger. Balloting For U. S. Senator.

An old postoffleo inspector says: "Money never should be inclosed in letters for transmission through the mails. In tho first place, It is unneces sary to do so, because money orders are so cheap, and, In tho second place, money in a letter offers a constant temptation to those who handle mail. It Is practically impossible to place money In a letter so that tho postal clerk into whoso hands the letter falls will not Instantly detect It. Paper money lias a peculiar odor unlike any thing else on earth, and tho clerk who is dishonest uses his sense of smell in spotting valuable letters rather than the sense of touch."
