PAYEHE GIVEN NEW
Wille SUPPLY; FINE ; VEIN IS UNEARTHED First Class Pumping Station Installed to Fill City Reser voir; Strike Splendid Water at Depth of 47 Feet. Payette, April 10—Payett© la ex ceedingly fortunate In that an ample supply of water, chemically pure, was found at a depth of only 47 feet. Two wells to this depth were dug and a first class pumping station at each well has recentl.vy been installed at a total Cost of only $8650. The two wells and pumping plants frre to bo given a public inspection by the citizens of Payette next Sunday, April 13. A pleasant surprise is in ■tore for them. They will be surprised to see what a fine piece of work has been done, considering the low cost. In past years Payette was unfortu nate in its attempts to secure good wa ter for drinking ami cooking purposes. The water was'so bad the state board of health last year condemned Its use. LESS POWER NEEDED. The old pumning plant near the Pay ot te river was installed at a cost of $33,000, and pumped 125 gallons per minute from the Payette river into the city reservoir which is located •ast of the city. A 19-horse power mo tor was required to pump the water from the river to the reservoir through a system of pipes containing eight el bows. The two present pumping plants furnish an equal amount of water as the old plant and only seven horse power is required to pump the water through only two elbow , into the reservoir. Now Payette has an abundance of pure, good-tasting water for all do mestic purposes, and ample for fire protection. The reservoir is high, giv itng pressure enough to throw water over the tallest buildings in town. CLOSE TO RESERVOIR. The two wells are located east of the City, not far from the reservoir. The wells are about 100 yards apart. In digging them a spring formation of R'ery coarse gravel was struck. The wells were put down through 14 feet of coarse gravel. This is w hat insures the permanency of the purity of the water. Inexhaustible springs of water Were tapped at a depth of 47 feet.

What is considered to be one of the several preliminary movements on the part of the government for the irri gation of the .vast tract of fertile land between Boise and Mountain Home, is the order withdrawing for location, fil ing or settlement all this land still held by the government. The order, signed by Franklin K. Lane, was received at the Boise United States land offico Wednesday evening. The action was based upon the rec ommendation of the geological survey that the lands could be irrigated from the Snako river, water being diverted from the Milner dam. The geological survey made a preliminary survey of the land and found its irrigation feas ible and that the land was as fine a tract for farming as could he found anywhere in the world. The reclamation of this land to make homos for returned soldiers and others, is a part of the government re construction program, which calls for the bringing under irrigation 1,000,000 acres in Idaho.

Alexander, the prince of entertainers, held a capacity audience at the Pinney theater Wednesday night ufitil 11 o'clock. His entertainment was a lit tle more novel than any previously put on. The crowd marveled at his won derful mystic feats, applauded his brilliant remarks and were puzzled at the mysterious way in which he j j I ! j j If You Need a Medicine You Should Have the Best Have you ever stopped to reason why it is that so many products that are ex tensively advertised, all at once drop out of sight and are soon forgotten? The reason is plain—the article did not fulfil the promises of the manufacturer. This applies more particularly to a medicine. A medical preparation that has real curative valuo almost sells itself, as like an endless chain system the remedy is recommended by those who have been benefited, to those who are in need of it. A prominent druggist says "Take for example Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, a preparation I have sold for many years and never hesitate to recommend, for In almost every case it shows excellent results, as many of my customers testify. No other kidney remedy has so large a sale." According to sworn statements and verified testimony of thousands who have used the preparation, the success of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root is due to the fact, so many people claim, that it fulfils almost every wish in overcom" ing kidney, liver and bladder ailments, corrects urinary troubles and neutral izes the uric acid which causes rheu matism.

For more than an hour he reeled off name after name, announcing the ques tlons written giving the name oi writer and an answer which pr satisfactory in every instance. More than 500 questions were submitted of t l 10 which 250 were answered in rapid fire succession. Alexander was not fooling. One young lady in the audience found that j out to her own satisfaction. After writ j ing a question, the bashful maiden who I occupied a near front seat, did not ! raise her hand when her name was j called. Slto wanted to know whether j to engage In business or get married, Both opportunities were open. Leav ing the stage, the man of mystery, pointed out the young lady, told her question, advised that she marry. Further, he told her the young man who was with her at the performance had already proposed. She was not inclined to admit It until Alexander Informed her if she did not he- would tell the house just what the young man had said to her when he proposed. She prevented further revelations by answering "Yes, yes, that is right." Several in the audience who had j r F .

Being attached to the flash and sound organization of which only a small body of picked men were re. cruited, there was no relief squads to take their place and consequently they hud to be kept within the firing zone as their service wap found to be in valuable. Leo F. Kelly enlisted in the old Sec ond Idaho before it left Boise and sailed to France with them. Shortly after their arrival, men were selected from the different regiments for schooling in an organization known ns the flash und sound brigade. Forty men were selected, given five weeks' schooling and sent to the front. Mr. Kelly explained that similar organ izations were used by the British and French, the former being called the "Bull and Tucker" and the latter, the "T. M. system." After a few week at the front he states the -Hi men in the American or ganization had worked out so complete system that as soon as one of tho poke out it could be After that, he : states, tt did not 1ako the American ! gunners long to silence it. This sys j tern, lie states, was a try-out, but was , so efficient that more men were re j cruited, given schooling nnd sent to j various parts of the front, but there ] was never enough furnished for re [ lief work. j While nerve racking at times, he j stated, it was, in his opinon, the most asked questions concerning lovo af fairs, did not raise their hands until the mystery man announced he would como down and not only point them out but tell everything he knew about them. From the lifting of tho curtain until the close of the entertainment there was not a dull moment. His audience left mystified but satisfied, and .many expressed themselves as intending to see every performance during the re mainder of- the week. _ AN ENDLESS CHAIN.
