American Falls, Idaho, with its popu

new site higher than its present loca

months by engineers working on ' a
huge irrigation, project.
Waters of the Snake River, on whtch
American Falls Is located, are to be
dammed, according to present plans,
and will be used to reclaim some 3000,
000 or more acres of arid land now
given over to the sage brush.
Engineers say tne project In one of
the largest ever attempted. The big
dam Itself will have an nbutment of
one mile in lensth, will be sixty feet
high and will have a base sufficiently
strong to stand an additional thirty
feet should it ever bo deemed neces
sary to add to Its height.

Dr. Peebles, 90 Years of Age
Writes Book Telling How to
Grow Old Gracefully.
LOS ANGELES. Calif.. June 2. (A.
P. Dr. James Martin Teebles, phy
sician and author. Who not long ago
celebrated his 99th. birthday adver
sary and w ho write a book on "How to
Live a Century and Grow old Grace
fully," ascribos his long life in large
measure to abstinence from eating ani
mal flesh. Dr. Peebles stopped eating
meat when he was 3S years old. He
wrote his book on the rules of living
when he was 62.
Asked what he considered the
greatest contributory cause to his long
life he instantly replied:
"One cannot strengthen life by liv
ing on death. I cannot bear the idea
of eating dead cows and dead hogs:
and it is -not necessary. See how
strong are horses and oxen: they do
not live on dead flesh." Other rules
he made for himself and which he
said he believed had helped him to
reach his advanced yeara included:
"Got to bed every night at 8;30, Out
of bed every morning at six. Never use
tobacco. Never use Intoxicating liqu
ors. Never complain.
"Avoid all worry and keep an har
monious mind. Worry is among the
worst things in the world. Have a
strong will-power. Always look for
the new. Keep clean." ,
On his 99th birtiiday. Dr. Peebles
walked erect only occasionally using a
cane; his sight was good although he
tised spectacles for reading; his hear
ing "as Brood am pver " anH hla ann.
tite and digestion he declared excel
lent. His long white beard and hair
gave him a truly venerable appear
ABked what his nlans for iho futur
were he replied:
"To live a number of vMrs mnrw
and to write at least another book.
This will be on the progress of Chris
tianity as It it preached, shelving how
preachers are leaving hell fire, brim
tlm dogmas behind.
What a variety of mighty changes
slnw my birth:" he exclaimed. "Na
