he still has unbounded faith in the
Christian religion, but thinks he will not

We find tbe following in the Ansley
Chronicle, to which we call the special
attention of the farmers of this county.
Supervisor Daily was giving the edi
tor some pointers, the other day, on the
value of alfalfa. John is given to exper
imental farming in his leisure moments
with his spare cash, and he finds many a
valuable lesson by experience. It was
while in one of these moods that he
sowed an acre to alfalfa in 1891 to
what it whs worth. It came up quickly,
and he pastured it until late in the fall.
The next summer he cut three crops of
alfalfa from the patch, but that was a
good year. In 1893 it was dry, but it had
little or no effect on this forage plant and
he cut three crops. This convinced him
that it was a good thing to have on the
farm, and last spring he sowed five acres
more. Notwithstanding the hot winds
and drouth it grew nicely, and he past
ured it late in the summer. The old
piece grew finely and he cut three crops
from it, yielding a total of three tons. To
test its vitality he cut the second crop in
the hot days in the middle of last July,
and just six weeks later-he cut the third
crop, which was standing twelve to four
teen inches high. Now, this early, his
alfalfa field is putting forth green shoots,
and with the first few weeks of warm
weather he expects to have good pasture
age. As a feed for stock Mr. Daily
thinks it is superior to our prairie hay,
keeping the stock in better condition.
Hogs eat it as readily as cattle, snd they
fatten and thrive on half the usual
amount of corn. Mr. Daily has so much
faith in alfalfa as a crop for this country
that he expects to plant seventy acres
during the next yearor two. The alfalfa
he now has planted is not on valley land,
but on the top and side of a bill, or high
as tbe average hill in this section, snd he
;-3f. ,- - ; '
sowed itoa a clean corn-field stubble in
the early spring, and cultivated it in with
a disk harrow. Some have said alfalfa
would not do -well in a wet season, but to
this Mr. Daily recalls his experience in
the. wet spring and summer of 1891, the
first year he planted it, when he walked Irrigation is our only hope; let the good
into the patch in the middle of the sum
mer and could just oonveaieutly stretch
out his arms over the top of the alfalfa.
So strong is Mr. Daily's faith in the
strength and vitality of alfalfa that he
believes all our hill lands that are now
idle and wasted could be covered witfi a
rank growth of this forage plant, and in
years to come would be the most valu
able part of the farm. Mr. Daily is not
given to visionary schemes, but4 is a
practical, successful farmer, and the
farmers of Lincoln county could not do
better than heed his advice, and profit
by his experience.
Chas. Rose, of North Platte, was in the
city last Tuesday, and, we understand, ia

survey for the Dawson and Lincoln

Bus Couch will put in an irrigation
ptrmn to be run bra thirteen foot seared
steel windmill. His well will be about
fifty feet deep.... j S-M. G. Bradley and
son will soon erect a big-jumbo windmill
eighteen feet long by Bixteen feet high,
for irrigation purposes and to help sup
ply their fish pond with water. It will
also be erected so that a cable can be
run from the wheel to a building in
which will be a feed cutter and some
other useful kinds of feed machinery.
They expect to go into" the hog raising
business principally, and steam the
alfalfa hay before feeding. Their well
laid plans, successfully carried out will
doubtless make good profits L. B.
Rector has his irrigation plant now about
completed. He first put down a well
sixteen inches in diamater, using com
mon wood casing. He then ordered of
Axel Nelson one of his galvanized iron
pumps thirty-eight feet long, his well
being thirty-four feet deed'. This pump
was pnt up and a ten foot Dandy wind
mill hitched to it and turned loose. In
an ordinary wind it dischargee forth
four gallons per minute on a seven and a
half inch stroke. Mr. Rector has a large
earth reservoir and ia now prepared to
do considerable farming under pump
irrigation. These pumps which Mr.
Nelson build are made of No. 20 galva
nized iron, riveted and soldered into a
pipe about one-half inch larger in di
ameter than the cylinder. Being thus
larger than the cylinder permits the
plunger to be withdrawn without tak
ing up the pump. The cylinder is of
twenty inch cast iron and may bo had
from six to twelve inches in diameter,
and a stroke of sixteen inches can be
had. The plunger rod is made of two
inch oak. 31 r. Nelson now has two of
these pumps in operation, both giving
satisfaction. C. F. Searle has the second
one built which is twenty eight feet long.
To it he has hitched his big jumbo mill
at a twelve inch stroke. Mr. Nelson haa
received an order from J. J. Sneddecker
of Brule, for a six inch pump sixteen feet
long; also an order from Ilus Couch for
one that will be nearly fifty feet long.

We clip the following from the Irriga
tion Farmer published at Salina, Kan
sas, we claim, however, that it win .
never bar necessary for us- to deed back
this country to its former condition if
irrigation is adopted and utilized in
every way possible. It may be, 'perhaps,
that our table lands cannot be all used
in this way, but that portion which can
no't, can be made a free range or in Eome
other way pastured. Still an immense
body of land, enough to support thous
ands of people, can be watered. The
article referred to reads as follows: "It
is humiliating to the people of Kansas
and Nebraska to have carloads of provi
sions and old second-hand clothes
shipped from eastern states to what are
called the western sufferers. It will be
a happy day to Kansas people when that
term becomes obsolete. We would
rather have no western settlers than to
have the term western sufferers retained
in the American vocabulary. Give us
the coyote, the antelope, the prairie dog
the cowboy and the long horned Texas
herds, but never let us have western
A good local paper aids in building up

adds to the value of property a thous

have received from the vicinity.
Strangers receive their first impression
of a city or town from the local paper.
A home paper sent abroad to friends,
neat, attractive and apparently prosper

the home paper. which has made and is
making the town known to the world as
a point for trade and business, and the
resident who does not appreciate it is
simply engaged in commiting business
suicide. Name the prosperous towns in
