ACROSS IDAHO DESERT BY AUTOMOBILE
The following Interesting letter, i
written by Percy F. Megargel, the
autotst who Is now crossing the Amer
ican continent by automobile from
Portland to New York city, hus Just
crowed the desert and lava fields of
central Idaho, and writes the Boise
Capital News from Arco, Idaho, as
follows:
"With the skins of two coyotes,
killed on the lava desert, tacked on
the sides of the car, the Iteo Moun
taineer, of New York, pulled Into Ar
co late last night, having successful
ly withstood the hardships of the 65
mlle desert run, without taking on
water or getting stuck in (he sand
hills. The lava plains of Idaho, just cov
ered by the Reo Mountaineer; extend

luily organized rabbit drives are held
weekly, and thousands, yes, tens of
thousands are killed In these drives,
but ."till they Increase.
A Itahblt Drive.
"When the Reo Mountaineer came
Into sight there were rabbits In front
of rabbits to the right of us, rab
bits scampering In every direction at
the approach of the puffing car. Even
the dreaded coyote Is allowed to roam
free over this section, as ho lives on
rabbit as much as he does on sheep
and, aa one farmer expressed It, 'every
little helps.'
"For a rabbit drive, a long wire
fence is built in the shape of a letter

where men with clubs kill them by
the thousands. The dead rabbits arc
are Inhabited only by wild beasts,
mountain Hons, coyotes, wolves, bear,
antelope, deer, wild cattle and wild
mustangs.
"Three landmarks in the center of
the barren plains are visible for 100
miles. These are three huge piles of
earth and lava known as Big butte,
Middle butte and Little butte. The
trail to Arco runs between Big butte
and Middle butte. and a trail between
Middle butte and Little butte takes
one up to the Lost river region, a sec
tion .of country that abounds in mys
tery, chief among which is the total
disappearance of a large river, which,
after running several hundred miles to
the southwestward to form the mar
velous Thousand Springs that gush
out on the Snake river canyon near
Hagerman.
Tlie Jackrabblt Pest.
"At Moreland, where the American
Motor league tourists put up Monday
night, the entire country is suffering
from the jackrabblt plague a plague
that any one of the plagues of Egypt
would have been small beside, ac
cording to the stories of the Mormons
settled there. No sooner is anything
planted than the jackrabblts eat it up.
Fences are sunk Into the ground to a
depth of three feet, but the rabbits
burrow under them. Dogs are kept
in small herds to hunt them down,
and the country for miles around Is
strewn with pieces of rabbit fur, but
for every one that Is killed a dozen
spring up to take its place. Regu-
fed to the hogs and chickens and also
used as fertilizer. A dance in the
town hall usually follows the drive,
all under the auspices of the settle
ment, of course.
Irftsx In a Snowstorm.
'"Sunday we lost ourselves. It was
not entirely our fault, for we were
misdirected, and, not coming to a
ranch for some 15 miles, naturally
kept on going wrong. When we final
ly came to an Indian encampment we
had difficulty in making ourselves
understood, for neither Fassett nor
myself are very much In Bannock In
dian talk. Finally we were Informed
that we could reach Blackfoot by
striking across country, and we at
tempted It. first running , north to
avoid a rocky mountain peak. . We
kept turning, first one way and then
another, fording stream after stream
and eventually running into an Idaho
snowstorm that stung our faces like
needles. By this time we realized that
we were lost hopelessly lost and
there was neither ranch nor man
within 15 or 20 miles of us. One
thing remained, however, and that
was to follow our own trail back to
Pocatello. This was finally accom
plished. We arrived there, guided by
our searchlight, a little before mid
night, having put In the hardest kind
of a day and having accomplished
nothing."
MOVING TIIE FAIR.
Visitors Continue to Sec the Sights at
tike Exposition.
A cavalcade of drays and vans
moves continually through the boule
vards and ways of the exposition
grounds, bearing away the exhibits
that helped to make the Lewis and
Clark centennial the most successful
world's fair ever held, says the Ore
gon Dally Journal.
Only the oriental and foreign ex
hibits buildings are open to the pub
lic. They will be closed In a day or
so. They are open In order that con
cessionaries may dispose of . their
wares.
Though comparatively there are
few visitors to the grounds, yester
day's receipts at the gate were a sur
prise to the management. There is
an admission price of 25 cents, and
yesterday more than 1800 was taken
In at the gates. The same price of
admission will prevail until the
grounds are abandoned.
The postoffice substation on the
grounds was discontinued yesterday.
However, carriers continue their
rounds of the exposition grounds and
will deliver mails as long as the
buildings are occupied.
It is stated by the management that
a complete and detailed financial
statement will not be given to the
public at the present time. There are
many details that must be completed.
However, a statement Issued by
Auditor J. R. Mackenzie today showed
that the receipts for the closing day
were $15,708.39. The sum of $1372.80
was received Sunday. The statement
also showed that the Lewis and Clark
exposition had $175,618.32 to its credit
yesterday.

WHEAT WILL BE A LOSS.
Snow Falls on VntlireslicU Urulu In
" Poloiiso Country.
The first snow of the season fell
throughout the Palouse country yes
terday. Snow fell In the eastern half
of Whitman county. Wash., and ex
tended Into the Coeur d'Alene moun
tains In Idaho, says a Colfax dispatch.
The snow Is said to have been unusu
ally heavy In the mountains, hut in
the grain belt it did not reach a great
er depth than four inches, although
enough snow fell to make twice that
depth had it not melted as rapidly as
It fell. Some damage was done to
fruit and shade trees by the heavy fall
of wet snow coming while the foliage
was still on the trees, and the com
bined weight broke many of them
down.
This snow, coming after so much
rain, effectually kills all hope of sav
ing a vast amount of unthreshed
grain, and the total loss in Whitman
and adjoining counties Is placed ' as
high as 1.000,000 bushels. Much of
this grain Is standing in the shock and
cannot be saved, even If good weather
should follow, which Is not likely.
The grain has sprouted and Is badly
molded, swollen and bleached. It will
be fit only for feed for livestock and
much of It will not be even good feed.
Here Is the latest word on that most
engrossing of all great political-economical
subjects concentration of the
world's wealth, says the New York
Sunday World.
One hundred men and women, pool
ing their riches, could buy the whole
of New York City at Its present as
sessed valuation.
Beginning with John D. Rockefeller,
with his billion dollars made out of
oil. and ending with Henry Payne,
with his ten millions made out of fi
nancial operations, the total wealth of
these one hundred Individuals amounts
to $6,740,000,000.
The assessed valuution of New York
city's real estate, exclusive of that rep
resented by public parks und other
public Institutions is. In round num
bers, $6,000,000,000, Addition of the
value of the public property of the city
would make the total not more than
the combined wealth of the 100 per
sons named in the list printed on this
page, together with the most reliable
estlmnte of the wealth of each and
mention of the means whereby it was
gained.
In preparing for publication a sim
liar list the Paris Figaro newspaper,'
some weeks ago painstakingly Inter
viewed financial authorities in most of
the leading cities of America and Eur
ope. Its list lately published with
comments on the economical condi
tions Involved In such a concentration
of the world's wealth was fairly ac
curate in the main, but was under the
mark in some notable instances. John
D. Rockefeller, for example, It placed
fifth from the top, quoting him at
"over" $260,000,000.
It will be seen that the four greatest
producers of private fortunes In the
world are oil, diamonds, gold mines,
and Inheritance, In the order named,
as represented respectively by John D.
Rockefeller. Alfred Beit and J. B.
Robinson, of South Africa, and the
Czar of Russia. Three of these Indi
viduals dug out of the earth virtually
$1,000,000,000, $500,000,000 and $400,-
000.000. The fourth, the czar, inherit
ed $307,000,000. The next largest In
herited fortune Is that of William Wal
dorf Astor $200,000,000.
It is Interesting to note that with
the exception of the czar of Russia,
the Austrian emperor, with $685,000,
000. and the Shah of Persia, who In
herited $100,000,000, the crowned
heads of the world today cut rather a
poor figure In this company of the
world's richest 100 individuals.
The German kaiser's $4,000,000
leaves him away beyond its outskirts.
On that basis he cannot enjoy a bow
ing acquaintance with his charming
young subject. Miss Bertha Krupp,
with her $40,000,000, Inherited from
the great gunmaker.
King Edward, with his paltry pri
vate fortune of $1,500,000. Is hopeless
ly out In the cold. It would bankrupt
him to purchase a two-thirds Interest
In the Fifth avenue. New York, resi
dence which cost Andrew Carnegie
$2,270,000.
King Leopold of Belgium, in this
case, does not properly come In the
category of crowned heads, because
much of his private fortune of $100,
000,000 was made In the shrewdest of
financial and commercial operations.
Little Queen Wllhelmina's $26,000,
000 makes her no more thun a "poor
relation" of William Rockefeller,
tenth on the list with $100,000,000.
The Sultan of Turkey Inherited $65,
000,000 but It Is only by the grace
of England that he Is not among the
Paris "kings in exile" and u beggar.
The two richest women In the world
are Mrs. Hetty Green of New York,
and Miss Bertha Krupp. But while
the latter Inherited her vast fortune,
Hetty Green accumulated her $48,
000,000 through her own efforts as a
financier. The world does not furnish
an example approaching hers.
A Regret.
He worked Just seven days a week.
He couldn't work much more.
At night he made a bunk beneath
The counter In the store.
And as he saved his pennies up,
He dreamed of future bliss.
"When I am rich," said he, "I'll have
No hardships such as this."
And when he had attained great
wealth
Men turned to criticise.
The magazines declared that he
Was neither good nor wise.
They showed unpleasant pictures of
His features in the press
And strove In various ways to fill
His life with bitterness.
He viewed the prize whfch he had won
With feelings of dismay.
Men even railed at his attempts
To give the stuff away.
And as through sleepless nights he
tossed
He longed for days of yore,
When he was lost In dreams beneath
The counter In the store.

Held Up Obscene Cards.
The postoffice department has de
clared war on obscene or suggestive
postenrds, says the Boise Statesman,
Postmaster Fenton has received or
dors from the postmaster general to
rigidly enforce section 673 of the pos
tal rules and regulations. Under this
rule every postcard bearing a picture
or Innguage that Is obscene. Indecent
or Improperly suggestive should b
withdrawn from thu postofflco by the
postmaster and sent Immediately tc
the dead letter office. If there Is a
doubt as to whether the card Is Hiif-
flciontly objectionable to warrant Its
exclusion, it should be sent without
delay to the correspondence division
of the postoffice department. Post
master Fenton is ordered to exorcise
nil possible vigilance In ttie enforce
ment of this regulation. Already he
haa captured and withheld a number
of nusty cards, upon which the pic
tures are very objectionable.

Fully Puld Up.
The Lewis and Clark has a smaller
list of delinquent subscriptions for
stock in the corporation than any fair
that has ever been held on a stock
basis. Secretary Henry E. Reed de
clares that at the present time the
delinquencies do not exceed 3 1-2 per
cent of the amount subscribed and es
timates that the percentage will be re
duced to 2 1-4 per cent before the
corporation is finally dissolved, says
the Oregon Daily Journal.
The nearest approach to the record
of the Lewis and Clark exposition was
that of Chicago. delinquencies to
stock subscriptions to the great
world's fair of the Windy City
amounted to 7 per cent. At Omaha,
it is said, the number who failed to
pay their subscriptions was so large
that the percentage of delinquencies
was 18.
The Lewis and Clark fair corpora
tion was capitalized at $500,000. The
sum or $417,612 was subscribed,
principally by citizens of Portland
and railroad companies that were in

It was shown at the hearing that

THE TIME WILL COME. .
Wlien the Advice of Tills Pendleton
Resident Will Help Out.
Very few people are entirely free
from backache. It does not take
much to derange the kidneys. A lit
tle cold, a strain, stooping positions
or hard work, overtaxes those deli
cate organs, and many aches and
pains promptly follow. A Pendleton
citizen tells you how every kidney III
can be relieved and eured. Read
about It:
Mrs. Fred Noble, who lives at Jl
Cosble street, says: "I was troubled
for three or four years with my back
and kidneys, and was oppressed with
a tired feeling; all the time. My back
commenced to ache whenever I did
the least amount of work around ths
house that compelled me to lift any
thing or stoop over. The kidneys
were Irregular and annoyed me, es
pecially If I caught cold. I felt sleepy
or drowsy all the time. I used many
different medicines, soma of which
helped me, and some of which did
not. I saw Doan's Kidney Pills so
highly recommended that I went to
the Brock A McComas drug store and
got a box. They helped me from the
first and did me more good than any
thing of the kind I had ever used. I
am feeling better since the treatment
than I had In a long, long time before,
thanks to Doan's Kidney Pills."
