Tbere beems to be more air. Weed, a noxious plant. It grows on vacant lots and in back yards. Tbe. best way to get rid of weeds is to turn the yard bottom side up and let them grow the other way. Try this scheme and we will guarantee that you will have no more weeds for a week or ten days. The plan has worked success- fully in the east where the question of weed extermination baa received considerable attention during the last three or four hundred years.

HUGE DAM Shoshone Enter'plfise To Hi1 Largest Government Irriga- tion Works in the A quarter of a century ago the home of tbe buffalo, and later a cat- tle and sheep pasture, with an occas- ional ranch boose, the Big Basin in Wyoming is now the scene of a great activity incident lo the building of one of the largest of the government irrigation'works. Some years ago Colonel Cody, better known as Buffalo Bill, made a survey of the ShoHlioue canyon and in connection with General Miles projected a com- pany to construct a dam and irrigate some acres, 'jfbe necessary capital, however, was not forthcom- ing and when tUe national irrigation law was passed, the government took up the proposition and a large party of engineers has since been employed on tbe preliminaries of a great work of desert reclamation. Tbe Shoshooe river dashes down a narrow canyon, with jagged and per- pendicular at ita narrowest point the government has began tbe construction of the highest dam ever built It will cement .together the two' canyon walls for 240 feet above the stream bed and its 'foundation will go below tbe water line 88 feet additional, down to the solid bed rock. The stream, where it passes between .hose granite canyon walls, is bnt 65 feet wide and the dam'-will forma great lake of acres, with a wa- tershed of square miles, and storing enough water to irrigate 150, 000 acres through seven miles of 14 Foot tunnels bored in the solid rock. This will cost about an acre to. ae paid book to the government by tbe settlers ander the bueineea like provisions Tbe land itself is free under too liomestead act and has been reserved liy Secretary Hitchcock from .entry under the desert and other land laws Dot requiring actual residence and tiome building. This Sbosbone canyon and ite sur rounding mountains are one of nat- ure's great handiworks. All bin been cut out by tbe silver streamy rushing in its bed beloW. For conntloKs ages it bits eaten itil way through granite and liraestoue, wearing, wearing, wearing away. For centuries and ages it has flowed, ceaselessly and likewise uselessly on way to join the flood of the Mis- souri; now it is to be harnessed and made to produce for man. A thous- and farmers will make prosperous homed for themselves and and raise an annual product, of a couple or three million The engineering credit for this great project with its great dam, enormous spillways, its mountain road building and its miles of canals and bugh tunnels bored through, tbe solid rock is due lo Jeromia Abern, u government district engineer who, al- most out off from tbe onlside world, has taken up his residence for sever al years in this wild cauyon once a fastness of the Shusbone Indians. For a thousand yearn longer >-hn dam site would likely stand idle before private capita) ironld de- velope it to its magnificent firll cnp noity, for the difficulties in the Wrty of the engineers are many and uu- koownibnt the government will all odntftcles nod overcome them nnd finally turnover to a thousand ers a perfect job of com parable to the great works of fhn IV ruviun Incas, the Egyptian It or engineers of I mi in MI enduring moQameat for nil time to the of the present generation of Americans.
