The program was a long one. and very entertaining, mid the room was fairly crowded with people. The most amusing part of the exer cises was the original poem entitled The Yellow Dog," written by Geo. Clark, and after being4read it the beginning of the meeting, by re quest was re-read just before the meeting closed. Miss Dolan's essay on "Tobacco Smoking" was very instructive, while an original., poem by Miss Auna Snyder entitled "The Maxwell Picnic Party" won the ap plause of all present. Xext Satur day evening a change will be made in the program, and instead of a debate there will be a "mock trial" in which the literary brings charges against G. Clark for mistreatment of "the yellow dog.'' A good time is being anticipated by all, and a large attendance is expected. Clytie. There is talk that the people.of Lincoln county ma- send Rev. J. H.

During the past year our distin guished townsman, Col. I. A. Fort, has made a great many speeches on irrigation. His talk has awakened marked interest in the subject, and to-day western Nebraska is on a wave of prosperity that will prob ably make somebody seasick. The secret of Col. Fort's success lies in his earnest way of telling the plain, unfrilled truth. Grown men have been seen shedding tears of joy as he told in simple, touching words the story of happy homes and bountiful harvests that arc the "inevitable consequence of irriga tion, and little children have looked with hungry eyes as he has spoken of his last year's crop of vegetable, oysters and pumpkin pies. He never exaggerates. Exaggeration is unnecessary and Col. Fort knows it as well as any man. The plain narrative of the prosperity of Lin coln county farmers who irrigate is enough, and so he tells the tale to ttle barbarians outside the pale of Lincoln county civilization in a pleasant, unassuming way that is remarkably convincing. A few re marks taken at random from one of his speeches will indicate his happy and effective style. Out in Keith county the other day he said: "My friends, back in my county we have irrigated for nearly two hundred years, and to-day we are reaping the benefit. On my home ranch I can raise anything. My cranberry patch joins my wheat held on the north, and on almost any day, ex cepting a few of the coldest days in winter.
