Clyde MeClain. of Twin Falls. Ida
ho, was here over Sunday visiting
with relatives and old time friends.
Mr. MeClain paid the Courier o trice i
a pleasant call Monday morning and
left two dollars for a year's subscrip
tion to the Courier, which he order

Louisville about fourteen years ago
and settled on a piece of land near
Twin Falls. It was nothing but sage
brush and rattle snakes then but he
saw prospects ahead as there was already-
a movement on foot to irri
gate the land from Snake river,
which has since been accomplished.
When he settled there Twin Falls
was a small hamle.t but today is a
prosperous little city of ten thous
and inhabitants. Land could have
been brought at that time for but a
few dollars per acre which now
rhanires hands at from S250 to
$1,000 per acre.
Mr. MeClain was married after
locating in the west to a Cass coun
ty girl. Miss Bedella Smith, of Platts
mouth. They have a family of three j
children, a boy and two girts, lie
is enthusiastic over the possibilities
of irrigation and says he never has
to worry about rain for he can cause
it to rain on his crops at any time
he thinks they need it.
Mr. MeClain has not visited Iouis-
ville for six years and was pleased
at the evidences of prosperity in the
town of his youth. He returned home
