The disciples of Terpsichore hAd
much cause for rejoicing on last Mon
day evening. Why? Well, because on
that evening the Firemen gave their
Annual ball, and it proved to bo one of
the most successful n Hairs of its kind
which has been licit in tho city for ti
long time. A large number of tickets
had been sold during tho day by hustl
ing members of tho department. Of
course nearly all those who bought
tickets attended the dance nud henco n
largo crowd and a good time. The ac
tive membors of the department,
dressed in fire-fighting attire, preceded
by Chief W. O. Barnes nnd wife led
the grand march. A feature of tho
ball was tho distribution of favors to
tho dancers, who in turn gave them to
the parties with whom they wished to
dance. The favors for tho ladies being
minature fire-bells, while the gentlemen
were presented with "little" hatchets.
When the last strains of Homo Sweet
Home had died away nearly all those
present repaired to tho North West
cafe, where artistically decorated tables
laden with good tilings awaited the
fire-boys and their friends. Competent
service and the following menu brought
forth many complimentary expression's
for Proprietor Barnes and Mnuager
Chilled Tomatoes Olives
Spriug Chicken Supreme
French Peas in Cases
Shrimp Salad Mayonnaise Dressing
Cold Sliced Ham
Neapolitan Ice Cream
After a flash light picture had been
taken of the merry diners they departed
for their respective homes, but not
without much praise for the flro boys,
and with a solemn declaration that
they would bo sure to attend the next
Firemen's Annual Ball.

Well, I hnvor becomo a farmer for

I thought there wns money in It, so
do not know how long" 1 will keep It.
Land Is selling at all kinds of prices,
from ?2G to $1000 per acre. Somo of
theso flno fruit farms bring any kind
of a price. This In tho greatest fruit
country I have over seen, and tho
orchards look flno now, all In blobm.
They depend on Irrigation hero, havo
plenty of wnter and enn turn on the
water Just when they feel Hko It.
They do not rnlso any corn hero, nB
they can mako more money out of
other crops. TIiIb Is a great alfalfa,
timothy and clover country, and lots
of bluo grass, which makes up the
most of tho pastures. Thoro Is always
good sale for hay of all kinds.
I am staying with Mr. Jones, thd
man I bought tho farm from, nB
there is a crop of oats on tho plnco
this season so I can not mako any
use of it now. However I expect to
spend most of my tlmo In Boiso af
ter I get things in running order.
This Is tho finest country I over
saw, nnd after tho government- got
in their now Irrigation ditches, all
this country will bo filled up with
good fruit orchards or farmB. There
