Under the ordinance which the charges against the men were brought, playing cards for cigars, drinks or any thing of value is gambling and must be stopped in Boise as the detectives have orders t ostop gambling, and the 'hlnkey" games, as they are known, where cards are played for cigars and drinks, come under that head, accord ing to section 1003 of the ordinances of Boise City, which reads as follows: "Sec. 1003—Every person who deals, plays or carries on, opens or causes to be opened, or who conducts, either os owner, employe or lessee, whether for hire or not. any game of faro, monte, roulette, lansequenet, rougo et noir, rondo, or any game played with cards, dice o rally other device, for money, checks, credit, or any other representa tive of values, is guilty of a misde meanor, and Is punishable by a fine not less than $40 nor more than $200, or by imprisonment in the city jail not ex ceeding 60 days or by both such tine and imprisonment." Most of the men arrested pleaded guilty to playing cards for drinks and when the ordinance was read to them announced that they did not know they were gambling. Thus far the only fine paid was that of J. Arkus, of Nampa, who was released on a $10 bond to ap pear this morning, which he did and was fined $40. Dan Powers was the only one pleading not guilty. He de clared he did not know what consti tuted gambling, that he was Ignorant of the law and while he was In the game he had not paid any money to get In and did not think h ewns guilty. William Kettan and Henry Klnslnger forfeited tlielr bonds and It Is likely that the $40 fine given J. McGinnis, an old man, will be refunded. The case was in the nature of a test case to find out If the "hlnkey games," which always have been played here, constitute gambling nnd now that the matter has been determined, all such games must stop or ether arrests will follow.

Twenty-one farmers In the state have found large profits in the produc tion of clover, pea and beans for seed. Investigations conducted by Don H. Bark, government engineer in charge of the Irrigation investigations In this state, have shown a profit of $43.39 net on every acre that has been sowed to clover, and from $106 to $90 net on beans and peas. Most of the investigations by the de partment were conducted on the south sire of Twin Falls tract. Not only do the farmers make profits In selling their seed to the markets of the east at reduced freight rates, but the bene fit that their soli derives from the ni trogen of the plants Is a valuable as set that they have to consider In se lecting their land for the production of the crop. The experts do not advise tho farm ers to plant their entire acreage -o either of these crops, but they believe that a small acreage planted every year would reap great benefits in the increased productiveness of the soil, and the fact that the seed may he sold for cash at the time tliat it Is har vested. Most clover seed sells In the western markets at 14 cents a pound, requires little attention, brings cash, and fertilizes the soil In which it grows.
