of the Cattle Growers' association ot Ne-
braska, who has been in Washington for
the past ten days days looking after the in-
terests of the cattlemen, so far as national
- legislation is concerned, left for Coronado,
Cal., this afternoon Before leaving for
the"vestMr. Richards said:
"I am greatly encouraged in believihg
we will secure some sort of legislation per
mitting the leasing of public lands during
the present session of congress. I have
outlined a bill, which was submitted to the
Nebraska delegation last night, and to a
representative of the government, and I
have reason lo believe that the president
and secretary onheTnlerlor will give' the
measures their support I anticipate that
' there will be a unitedtfelcgatlon from Ne
braska in Us favor, and I am. confident that
Chairman Lacey, of the public land com
mittee of the house, will also lend his as
sistance. The states contiguous to Ne
braska are interested in the scheme of
making the bill apply only to Nebraska,
and they watch with much interest the
manner of Its working out. ? Of course, I
do not pretend ib say that the scheme as
Dronosed is the best that can be deyi

Important Decision.
, The Supreme court gave a decision of
Importance, Wednesday, relating to fore
clpsure of taxes'qn land by counties. The
case of Logan county against Carnahan is
reversed, Chief Justice Sullivan writing
the opinion. In this case It is held that a
.court cannot foreclose for taxes withbut
first securing a tax deed of certificate, and
that when a tax deed ot certificate Is se
cured the purchaser would take the land
subject to the owuer's constitutional right
to redeem withtn two years. Judge Grimes
of the district bench has been holding to
, the conjract, and many counties in the
western part of the siate have been fore
closing, sometimes on land when only a
small amount of taxes is due. The law
.firm of Hoagland & Hoagkad of North
Platte has been fighting the matter, and
lias now secured a reversal by the supreme
court. wwwww '
Robert Graham is doing very active and,
judging from the nature of it, very effective
'Work for tbe cattlemen 'of northwestern
Nebraska at present. In our last issue we
published a petition to congress asking for
Use enactment of a law providing for the
leasine of crazing lands, an excerpt of
which was also published: Mr. Graham
has been busily engaged circulating' Hits'
petition among the stockmen throughout
the' country along the Burlington as far
east as Thedford. Monday he went west
and after working the territory along that
line he will work eastward on the North
western and will have a sufficiently large
number of 'signers that it cannot fail to
commend tne petition to. me attention 01

sity for such legislation,

and misquoted. Inasmuch as
Prof. Scott Is :a cousin of our townsman,
George W. Clark, we believe an epitome of
the professor's speech will be not without
interest to our readers, and in itself it
should b, an (he question is a'vitat on

practical, broadmlnded manner.
He has been misquoted as having said
an unskilled American laborer can (mpport
a family and save money on a salary of
$300 a year. His address was a reply to
the statemant made Gefb'ro the cfasathaf

It is possible for the ordinary unskilled
able-bodied man or woman, eighteen years
of age, in this country to earn 5300 a'year.
It is possible for a single man
or woman to live in health and to dress
decently for $200 a year, even In our Urge
cities. It is therefore possible for the ordi
nary unskilled wage-worker to save at
least ioo a year. If, therefore, one be
gins to save at this rate at the age of
eighteen, he or she will have savings
amounting to $1,000 at the age 'of twenty
eight. If a man at the age of Hwenty'
eight marries a woman who is able to work
and save, and if both are reasoriably pru
dent thereafter they will need to fear no
"deadline" at 45. In other words 'they
will be able to "provide for the years when
they shall be unable to work.

Herbert Bottenberg, formerly editor of
the Northwest News, arrived from Alli
ance Monday, and blew into our office with
a most gepfaf smile and greeting like a long
lost brother The Ragged Top News is
no more, but it is good to see os? of the
main threads, and Brother Bottenberg was
heartily welcomed. The last time we saw
Herbert was in Gordon, when we lay on a
bed of sickness from which we never ex
pected td rise. Since then he ' has seen
many of those ups and downs which, often
fall (o the lot of the newspaperman. Mr,
Bottenberg has been working on the Alli
ance Herald one of the best printed pa
pers in the Northwest, and he comes to
Rushville to visit his wife and boy who re
cently arrived from Arlington, on a visit to
her father and brother, Mr. Nelson.

1'b.o ir6posa,l was not. at nl agreeable

Inevitable, ho wrote at tinco to Horace
Walpole explaining the 'circumstance
and asking: hint to get Dodaley to print
It immediately, but without tho au

poem to DodslOy on Feb. 32, 1751, and
011 tho 'iOth a copy was In Gray's hands
at Cambridge, so that It was probably
published In Iondpu on the 18tl or
10th. 1'hc Magufelno of Magatinea for

Npxt t? the dtfUqujty of comprehend
ing tbe wonderful senses of the deer ia
that of, understanding how1 dne looks in
the "woods., Your ideas are necessarily
taken from pictures or from stuffed
deer or tame ones in a park. You are
almost certain to be looking for a deer.
whereas you might better' be looking
for ntaythilig else, In tho woods you
fceldem see halt of a deer and generally
much less, often only a port of the
shoulder, or only ad ear over a log or a
leg tinder it, a bit of rUmp projecting
from a bUsh or a head and bit of tho
Beck reaching up for Jeuves. The ar
cade of maplo lit up by the scarlet1 of
the ginseng and bush cranberry, tho
little arbor where the wild hop is yel
lawlflg oyer tho thorn apples on which
half a doea ruffed grouse are taking

where tbe trout flashes through jthe
water, over which, tho chclone is atill
nodding, or the darksome glade where
tbe golden peJiiMi of the witch hazel
are closing the floral march pf the year
would all make lovely frames for that
charming artist's deer with individual
hair all glistening, tbe dark dew
claws shining, and even tbe split in tho
hoof, flashing artistic light from its
edges, But the glittering tines, he
orqud neck of the sculptured war
horse, the shaggy chest and bulging
rump with tall full of shining haira

.when you may rout an old fool ouof

Johnnie McCraw was a bit of a char
acter in a country village In the north
f Scotland, He lived on the charity
of jjie ylllagcrs, but sometimes found
it particularly hard work to do so.
On? day, when the springs of sym
pathy, seemed to have dried up, John
nie made his way to the house of ibe
local doctor and said:
"I've come to get a' my teeth taken
oot, doctor."
"Dear me!" said the medical man.
"What's wrung wj' them?" -
"Oh, they're a rlcht. but 1'vq'nae

In tbe Japanese capital there Is a 'gi
gantic image of a woman made of
wood, iron and plaster. The time of Its
erection and the name of Its deslguer

been dedicated to Ilacblmaii, ;tbe,god

four feet, tho head alone, wblpbvis
reached by a winding stairway in the
Interior of tho figure, being capable, ot
