One of the world's great engineering
feats can be found In the construc
tion of the Arrowrock dam, 21 miles
east of the city of Boise. Idaho. Un
like most dams this is not a dam
for irrigation purposes, but merely
safety first proposition. The dam was
constructed at a cost of $5,000,000 by
the government as a reclamation proj
ect and is capable of flooding 250,000
atres of land with one foot of water
during the dry season of one year,
provided the water Is reeded.
The dam, which is the highest In th
world, takes Its name from the rock

around which It Is built. In start
ing the project the engineers exca
vated 90 feet below the river bed and
there they found another river bed ol
Bl Cauldron lu Bed.
In this bed there were huge caul
drons which probably were made by
the river as It churned the big rocks
together, which lay along its course.
The bed of the river 90 feet below
the surface was the same as It wad
many years ago when some volcanli
eruption took place and covered it up.
The dam Is 349 feet high, 190 feet
wide at the bottom. 16 feet wide at
the top and about a quarter of a
mile long. The huge wall is buil.
of rotten granite and cement and is
the first experiment of the govern
ment In using granite In concrete
work instead of sand. The granite
was mined out of a nearby hill. Th".
motive power for the entire work was
electricltly, furnished by a station
about 20 miles down the river.
The huge wall contains in It many
rooms, electrically lighted, in which
la the latest machinery for regulating
the flow of water. This machinery
regulates the flow of the water
through the holes In the Bide of the
dam as no water goes over the top.
There are 10 holes, each four feet and
four Inches In diameter and 150 feet
from the bottom, through which the
normal flow of the river is permitted
to flow. In case of a flood the watfr
will run out of a spillway alongside
of the dam.
nineteen XUea lu Xiength. f
The pond back of the dam averages
one-half mile in width and Is 19 miles
long and although It is not full the
present depth of the water Is 200 feet.
This vast amount of water has accu
mulated from the flow of the river
during the construction period of foiT
The plan used while the dam was
under construction is the one which
i will always be used, as the dam was
not built for irrigation purposes, but
merely as a storehouse for water to be
used when the river runs dry. Except
during; a few weeks of the year the
river carries enough water to lrr(
gate the 240,000 acres now under cultivation.
Another feature of the dam which
has as yet not been developed is the
harnessing of the vast amount of
energy going to waste. The normal
flow of the stream develops 114,000
horse power and if the pond back of
the wall is filled to a greater depth
the horse power will Increase propor
tionately. The recent earthquake in Idaho did
not do any damage to the dam.

International attention Is sketched in
the following from a contributor to
Mrs. Lucy A. Rose Mallory of this
city, began the publication of the
World's Alvance Thought 30 years
ago, and It was the first advanced
thought publication ever started.
Parker Pillsbury. the prophet of the
abolition movement, and William H.
Kimball, the Concord philosopher,
were among Its earliest contributors,
and it was the forum of some of the
most original thinkers and writers
during the close of the last century.
If the poems published by the
World's Advance Thought were put In
book form they would certainly take
the front rank In poetic literature.
James Gowdy Clark wrote one of his
best poems, "Innovation," for its col
umns. Forum for Thinkers.
The advent of the World s Advance
Thought proved to be a decided new
leaven in the literature of the world,
and created quite a commotion amors
tt.e world's thinkers, but especially
was mis eviaeni in England, soon
after its appearance Captain William
.ldon Serjeant, of the British armv.
published a book entitled "Spirit Re
vealed." (a copy of which is in Mrs.
Mallory's possession). which has
proven itself prophetic in character.
It contains, among other matters.
quotations from the World's Advance
Thought. Captain Serjeant was a
close friend of Queen Victoria, and he
made her acquainted with the World's
Advance Thought, and In 1888 Captain
Serjeant sent to Mrs. Mallory a beauti
ful favor made of white baby ribbon.

own hands to show her appreciation
of Mrs. Mallory's efforts for human
W. T. Stead Her Friend.
William T. Stead was a great friend
of the World's Advance Thought from
the start, and it was the cause of his
launching the Review of Reviews
which created a great revolution In
the wordy literature of the old maga
zines. It certainly put advance!

writer, was among the first to con
gfatulate Mrs. Mallory on the advent
of the first number of the World's
Advance Thought, and he remained her
most faithful friend and admirer until
he passed away. Mrs. Mallory has
over 100 letters from him In her
possession. When he published his
International Tolstoy Almanac he in
vited her to write the leading article
for it, and published four volumes of
her "Key Thoughts" In Russian an!
German. lie also published a large
volume in the German language en
titled Fur Alle Tage (For Kvery Day)
which contains the sayings of the
noted thinkers and writers, both an
clent and modern, and Interspersed
these with a number of Mrs. MalIorys
"Key Thoughts." He called her "a
teacher of teachers,' and subscribed
himself her pupil.
Inspired Duchess Fomar.
The Duchess of Pomar, Lady Caith
ness was one of the earliest contribu
tors to the World's Advance Thought,
which inspired her to write the
"Mystery of the Ages," a work replete
with advanced ideas.
In recent times Mrs. Mallory's labor
for humanity's uplift is being recog
nized In all parts of the world. From
India came to her a jeweled medal,
struck In honor of her work; from
Brazil came a beautiful illuminated
parchment, voicing sentiments of grat
itude by the leading men In Brazil.
Not a month passes but she receives
grateful acknowledgements from the
Oxford and Birmingham universities
Among the dozens of appreciative
letters received (and which Mrs. Mal
lory never publishes), a very appre
ciative letter was recently received
from the honorable secretary of
Queen Mary's Needlework Guild, the
Hon. Lady Annie Lawley. The Guild

Elizabeth, queen of Roumania.wa'
one of Mrs. Mallory's most loyal
friends. She never missed an oppor
tunity to speak in commendation of
the World's Advanced Thought, and
uphold the truths it stood for. Queen
Elizabeth was deeply Interested in
providing for schools for the blind in
her dominions, sne once wrote Mrs.
Mallory how happy she would be If
she could persuade some of the rich
men in Roumania to unloose their
Durse-strines and help her provid
more liberally for the unfortunates.
Mrs Mallory has held advanced
thought meetings continuously for
the past 45 years, which are free to
the general public, without collections
or contributions being taken at any
rime: and people, all over the world
who have attended these meetings
have testified in their letters to Mrs.
Mallory how much benefit they have
received from them.
