' Says Lands In Irrigation Reservations
1 Are Only Temporarily Withdrawn-
Government Is Simply Prospecting
for Sites and May Abandon All
The secretary of ,tho Interior has
issued a circular letter warning set
tlers from undue haste In locating
upon government lands upon which
preliminary Irrigation surveys may be
The Idea prevails to a largo extent,
that the beginning of preliminary
work upon Irrigation schemes In the
West, is evidence that the govern
ment will complete the reclamation
of that tract of Irnul or reservation
included in the withdrawal. Such is
not the case.
The government is simply pros
pecting and for a number of reasons
may abandon any sites upon which
surveys hnve been made.
There must he something more
than preliminary work, more than
prospecting, to Insure settlers that
the lands located near a proposed
scheme of Irrigation will bo reclaim
ed. Recognizing the need of protection
for settlers from unscrupulous locat
ors and Irrigation "boomers," the in
terior department has issued the plain
circular for the benefit of Innocent
The circular Is addressed to the
leglsters of land offices and Is as fol
lows: "You are hereby directed In addi
tion to the Instructions contained In
office circular of September 0, 1902.

SLEEPING TO DEATH.
Strange Case of a Young Woman In
a Utah Hospital.
Salt t-ake, March 31. Physicians
or this cltv, more particularly those
nttached to the staff or the Holy
Cross hospital, are at a loss to account
for tho condition of Miss Bessie
Knecht, 22 years or nge. who for the
past 28 days has been asleep. During
that time the young lady has not
spoken n word, nor had, to all nppear
ances, a waking moment.
After the first week of her long
slumber, she was taken from the home
r,r i,nr tinmnts in this cltv and re
moved to the hospital, where, despite
numerous efforts on the part of the
physicians to arouse her. her condi
tion remains unchanged. She lies
with closed eyes, breathing naturally
day after clay and night arter night.
At long Intervals she raises her eye
lids a little but never opens them.
When tapped on tho rorehend she Is
seemingly annoyed, but gives no other
evidence or consciousness.
She Is fed at Intervals with linuhl
food, which she swallows nutomutlc
nlly. when It Is poured down her
throat, but In spite of this nourish
ment she is gradually wasting away,
and the physicians believe that should
her present condition continue, she
will pass from sleep to death through
the exhaustion of the vital forces
