To be sure who but an ignoramus
performing improper editorial func

that military discipline is a science.
It is the science of murder not mur

that treats of the most expeditious
and economical method of making
men into angels. Hence a ""Very
laudable science indeed. Who

reduce to an unrecognizable mass,
unless we have cadets to shoot or be

Sjj&JSjLOCK, OPPOSITE THE UNION PACIFIC DEPOT
CUT PBOM THE PAY ROLL.
J. H. McConnell, superintendent
of motive power of the Union Paci
fic said this morning that since Jan.
1. 900 men had been let out of the
shops along the line of the Union
Pacific, a saving in pay roll of $38,
000 per month. He further said
ihat there were 1,600 less men em
ployed in the shops of the system
on the first day of January 1895
than in January, 1894, a saving to
the company of many thousands of
dollars. "But the reduction did
not stop with the shops. Train
crews have been laid off, section
ings reduced, and wherever a
man coma oe spared he was in
formed that the condition of the
company's finances would not war
rant his continuance on the pay
roll. On the seventh district alone,
between Rawlins and Green River,
busiest district on the system dur
ing the fall, all the coal from Rock
Springs being handled between the
the points named, twenty-two
crews were formerly necessary tp
do the work. Now, ten crews are
all that regain. Every branch of
the system has been subjected to
the paring knife, but unless the
Short lano goes, I imagine we have
about reached the end of reductions.
Should a separate receiver be ap
pointed for the Short lane it would
let out a great many clerks from
headquarters, but I am greatly in
hopes that the Short Line will re
main a part of the Union Pacific.
(I regard the different postpone
ment as favorable to the theory that
a seperate receiver will not be ap
pointed. It may be also that the
postponement has been made with
hope that congress will do some
thing toward a funding bill, and I
am inclined to believe that some
legislation will be accomplished at
the present session, although the
financial situation seems to concern
congress most at this time." Bee.

with a horrible death by the explo
sion of a steam-engine in a distillery
near that city the day before. The
building was badly wrecked. An
other telegram was received Monday
stating that the debris was rapidly
being cleared away but his body had
not been found at that time. He
was a brother of Miss Anna Bar

Monson of Sedgwick count',
in the Irriaration Aire, thus
gives his experience with windmill
irrigation: "During the extreme
drouth of three years ago an idea
struck me to costruct a reservoir
and use windmills and pumps to
fill it. I'selected the only, suitable
place on the farm to build the reser
voir, which was sandy or rather
gravelly, and it was necessary to
build it of stone and cement it in
side. It was made 80 feet in
diameter with oV feet walls banked
up all around on the out side.
dug two wells as near the reservoir
as-possible. I had to go 20. feet for
water, so erected two 21-foot wind
mills. One of them, operates a 4
inch double acting cylinder and
throws a 2-inch steady stream; the
other mill operates a 4-iuch single
acting cylinder which does not
pump so mueh as the other. With
this arrangement I can irrig;
about ten acres of land. I have
raised garden stuff, mostly onions,
celery, potatoes, and have begun
to plant fruit trees and small fruit
and it has thus far paid fairly well
on the investment considering my
experience in irrigation. I feel
thoroughly satisfied that with ex
perience and good attendance it
will be a paying investment."
The great drought of 1894 has in
creased the interest felt in this ques
tion in Kansas, Nebraska and other
trans-Missouri regions. Professor
Georgeson of the Knnsas experi
ment station gives very high praise
to the Red Kaffir corn as a substi
tute for corn in central Kansas.
This is one of the many nonsaccha-
hums. He gives it the
preference over others of the class,
such as the White- Kaffir, Millo
maize, Jerusalem corn, etc At the
College farm at Manhattan, in
northern Kansas; this variety has
given larger yields of both seed and
stalks than has corn. In a favor
able year a crop of 71 bushels of
seed and nine tons of dry fodder
were harvested per acre. In this.
extremely dry year, where corn
failed almost entirely, this Red
Kaffir sorghum gave a yield of over
three tons of dry fodder. The
seeds are 'small and should te
ground before being fed. If this is
done, Professor Georgeson thinks
them equal to corn as food for farm
animals. The stalks have more
leaves than do corn, and also have
the peculiarity of having the leaves
remain green after the seed has
matured. It is recommended to
plant in rows about three feet apart
with the stalks from 4 to 8 inches
apart and to cultivate as with corn.
It ripens at Manhattan about Oct.
The legislative committee of the
Kansas Irrigation association met
at Topeka recently and formulated
the following bill, and directed its
subcommittee to have it introduced
at the next session of the legisla
ture: "Be it enacted by the legisla
ture of the state of Kansas: That
the sum of $10,000 be appropriated
out of a,ny funds not otherwise ap
propriated for the unexpired bal
ance of the year ending June 30,
1895, and the sum of $45,000 for the
year ending June 30, 18, "and $15,
000 for the year ending June 30,
1897, to be expended by the state
board of agriculture in behalf of
developing the irrigation interests
of the state by the collection and
dissemination of information and
in making any surveys, practical
tests and experients which may be
judiciously undertaken by said
board provided that- -noet of"sdS"
money shall be expended, ia the
purchase of land."
The Farmer's Mutual Irrigation
company have been, pushing their
work right along and the cold
weather has not hindered then
Lmaterially.-. JThe company works-

pended over 58 so far on machinery.

and feel confident of being able to

The extent to which this coun
try is exporting silver indicates a
faith abroad in future advance in
the value of the- metal. In 1891
the net export of silver was $9,000,
000, in 1892 the amount was $14,
250,000, in 1893 the export balance
rose to $28,000,000, and in 1894 to
$36,540,000. There is a future for
silver in spite of its wild, pretended
and fool friends.
