That the farmers of Ada county or those who propose to engage in farm ing appreciate the value of state lands under the Boise lrrlgatlqn project and the Arrowrock dam was made quite evident today at the state land sale conducted in the house of representa tives at the capitol annex by State Land Commissioner Day. There was 3600 acres of land put up for sale under the hammer or at public auction and 3000 acres was sold under the 40-year payment plan. This leaves but 1000 acres of state land left to be sold to the highest bidder ln this county. The record Is considered a remarkable one. The land department was busy all day checking up the receipts from the sale which ran Into the thousands of dol lars. There was a large crowd of bidders ln attendance and to accomodate them the sale took place ln the house of re presentatives with State Land Com missioner Day presiding, started off lively at the start. The land seemed to be very much in demand and raises on some of the pieces offered for sale came rapidly. The lands sold have been well gone over. That is It was not at all considered the ''cream'' of the state lands In 'this county, much of the more attractive land having been sold before. The land sold today was considered rougher and as not a great many applications had been made It was hardly expected the bidding would be so lively or so much land would be sold. The bidders, however, seemed to be thoroughly familiar with the land they wanted and did not hesi tate to offer their money for It. The highest price per acre bid was 251 and the lowest price, of course. flO the minimum set by law. Another sale of state land takes place at Caldwell Saturday morning. The sale will be held in the county court house commencing at 10:30 o'clock when it will be put up at pub lic auction. As this land is very de sirable it is expected bidding will be lively and prives high.
