TO ffi TAKEN UP niKKIEWüW Homestead Act Permitting Filing on 640-Acre Tracts Now Before the President for His Signature. Idaho is one of the western states that will be greatly affected by the 640-ncre homestead act. which has been passed by the present congress and Is now before the president for his signature. The measure will probably be signed the latter part of this week. Many people in Idaho are anxiously awaiting the time when the terms of the new law go Into effect, for they are prepared to file on tracts of land. Included in the list are nan/ who de sire to go into the sheep and cattle business, for the large area of land allowed under an entry will make the lands valuable for grazing purposes. There seems to be a difference of opinion here among those who watched ,the progress of the bill and are more or less familiar with its terms to whether residence on the land To make an entry only the payment of a fee Is necessary. Some say that continuous residence for three years is necessary. Others as \ sert that residence only r' intervals Us required. Much of the land that can he filed upon is more or less Isolated It has for have as is required. om % present settlement. been used by sheep and »any years ■Kjckmen as public range, is without Water und will therefore be ifficult tb'live upon. ^INCREASE STATE'S REVENUE.

Modern high-heeled footwear buckles the toes und produces corns, and many of the thousands of hospital cases of Infection and lockjaw are the result of . Oman's suicidal habit of trying to cut away these painful pests. For little cost there can be obtained at any ph rmacy a quarter of an ounce of a drug called freezone, which is sufficient to rid one's feet of every hard or soft corn or callus without the slightest danger or inconvenience. A few drops applied directly upon the tender, aching corn stops the sore ness and shortly the entire corn, root and all, lifts right out. It is sticky substance, which dries the moment it is applied, and thousands of men and women use it because the corn shrivels up and comes out without inflaming or even irritating the surrounding tis sue or skin.
