Medium Sized Hats
Are Now in Demand
This is as we predicted in our Easter an

So we advised our customers accordingly,

compliment us upon our good judgment.
For Saturday Over three hundred beautiful
Hats are displayed, priced from

Sonata file 423 provides for the publlu
control and conservation of the water
powers of the elate to the Interests of
tho people of the state. Any number of
electors, not less than 100, may file a.
petition with the State Board of Irriga
tion to pass upon the feasibility and en
gineering problem of any power site for
the proposed district. It the state engi
neer reports favorably on the proposition
then a petition Is tiled calling for an eleo-
tlon nnd organisation of the district. A
board of directors manages the district,
but the control of the district is In the
hands of the voters of the district. The
district will oontaln all of the territory
deemed feasible to be served. If after
the district Is formed It Is found that
there Is power enough to furnish outside
the district the district may be enlarged
to take In that territory. The water
power district may tile upon any power
site In the state not already appropriated
under the law existing and that their
rights shall date from the filing.
