FORFEITING SCHOOL LEASES.
Interest Delinquent on About One
Hundred Thousand Acres.
LINCOLN Two thonsand notices
of forfeiture of school land leaseB
have been sent out by Land Commis
sioner Follmer. Nearly 100,000 acres
of land will bo affected and tho de
faulted Interest will run up into the
thousands. The exact amount Is not
attainable now, and will not be known
until the balancing of the books takes
place. It Is estimated that it will not
fall below $25,000. This represents
bIx months default, and under the law
the lessees have ninety days In which
to pay up. If they do not do so they
can only get the lease renewed by
paying up and In addition a lease fco
of 50 cents for each forty acres.
The usual practice heretoforo has
been to wait until actual delinquency
occurs before starting In on tho prep
aration of the notices. Deputy Eaton
has changed this and had tho notlceB
prepared in advance so that the state
will lose no Interest. Mr. Follmer has
been pushing collections vigorously.
In the old days delinquents were giv
en all tho time they desired, and in
the end a good many fo them duped
the state. In one case, when Mr. Foll
mer took hold, the delinquency cov
ered a period of thirteen years. His
practice has been to forfeit all leases
Just as soon as the law will permit,
where the holders do not comply with
the terms of their agreement.

Weiseman, but received no response.
On pushing the door open he discover
ed the man lying on the bed with a
revolver in his hand. Coroner Wil
liams was summoned and it was found
that the man had been dead some
tlfno and that death must have 'been
instantaneous, as there was no evi
dence of a struggle and his hand
grasped the revolver, by hfs side as ho"
lay on the bed. V

A Dreadful Change.
The Now York Rialto Is laughing
over a story told ,on Will Carelton,
the poet, who is also a publisher. The '
other day he appeared at his office
In a new coat, which ho hung up. It
fell to the dusty floor. The office boy
picked the garment up without brush-"
lng it and helped Mr. Carleton put it
on. Catching a glimpse of his own
disreputable appearance in a mirror
tho poet thundered: "Boy! What do
you mean by thl3? I come In hero
looking like n publisher and you send
me out looking like an author!"
It is pointed out that tho cost ot
feeding the militia which went to St.
Louis was 60 cents per man per day.
The cost of feeding tho regulars was
17 cents. Here Is a typical program
for ono day: Breakfast Oatmeal and
milk, pork sausage, potatoes, bread
and coffee. Dinner Bread and coffee,
baked beans, pork, catsup. Supper
Bean soup, cold corned beef, potatoes,
bread and coffee. This was varied
from day to day in the way of bacon,
ham, fresh beef, canned beef, peas,
onions and other vegetables. Tho
regulars were better fed at 17 cents
per day than tho militia at 60 cents.
