The city council met iti regular
session last evening, those present
being Mayor Baker,, counciimen
clerk Scharmann. ;
The first business transacte'd was
a motion directing the mayor to
purchase three kegs of spikes for
use in crosswalks
A two dollar claim of the Wild
West hose company was allowed as
was also the bill of W.- R. Morgan
for killing an even dozen dogs. The.
claim ot John Davis for serving
poll tax notices, amounting to $30
was approved. The balance due
the Gutta Percha Mfg. Co., amount
ing to $120, was ordered paid out
of the general fund, and a warrant
for $311 was drawn in favor of the
waterworks company. '
This completed the routine busi
ness and the council then proceeded
to discuss the matter of purchas
ing hose for the fire department.
Ex-chief Evans and assistant chief
Hart were present and reported
that a good part of the hose now in
use was in bad condition. Under
ordinary fire pressure sections of
hose, were liable to burst at any,
time, which in case of a bad fire
might result disastrously. B.oth
these gentlemen recommended pur
chasing 750 feet of hose. There
was also present at the meeting a
Mr. Thompson, representing the
Chicago Fire Hose Co. He had
samples of his goods along, and
offered to sell his best 4-ply brand
at one dollar per foot and accept for
payment a general fund warrant
next July. The members ot the
council expressed themselves in
favor of buying 750 feet of hose, but
they thought one dollar per foot
was too high in price. The hose
purchased eight years ago cost that
figure, and as all other manufac
tured goods had declined in price
during that time they thought it
was possible tftat a reduction had
also taken place in fire hose. In
other words the council did not in
tend accepting Mr. Thompson's
offer until they had received quota
tions from other manufacturers.
The clerk wes subsequently in
structed to write hose manufac
turers asking for prices and samp
les. Final action on this matter
will probably be taken at the next
regular meeting.
A councilman called attention to
the fact that that there was con
siderable gambling going on at
present in several "dens," and he
thought the matter should be
looked up by the police. The latter
will probably make a raid on these
places some time soon.
Councilman Fikes wanted the
saloons to close at 12 o'clock each
night, though 11 o'clock would be
better. He argued that so long as
saloons kept open all night it
afforded a loafing place for young
men who should be at home. Mr.
Fikes' proposition did not elicit
much enthusiasm, and the council

The Elm Creek Irrigation canal
: which was begun last year will be
completed this fall and winter. It
was originally intended to be four
teen miles in length, but owing to
circumstances only twelve miles
were completed. The company is
taking hold . of the matter.afresh
now and propose to make the ca
nal twenjy miles in length. It
taps the river southeast ot Overton
and will run to a point;nea'r Odessa
and will water about 20,000 acres.
On Saturday last the Farmers
and Merchants' Irrigation Co. let
the contract for the construction of
two and a half miles of their main
canal, which runs from the head of
lateral No. 1, toBuffalo-rreek. The
work was "awarded to David Kelly
at prices-ranging from six to eight
cents per cubic yard. Kelly and
his men commenced work on the
contract last Wednesday, If the
weather proves to be favorable the
company expects to complete the
main caual in, tinie to furnish water
for next year's crops,
An irrigation company has been
formed on Wood Jiver valley, with
J. H. Edmisten and others behind
it. who propose to irrigate a part
the fertile and beautiful lands ly
mg along that handsome valley.
The scheme is to construct two
dams, one a.mile and a Iralf above
Eddyville, across tlienort'h fprk of
Wood river, and the other across
the south fork of the river, two
miles south of Ejddyvijle, The first
dam will contain 35,000,000 gallons
of water and the latfer 47,000,000
gallons. It is proposed, to use the
dams as storage basins and catch
all the water that flows in either
fork of the river, and use the same
when needed. Only 4,000 acres
can be irrigated under the pro
posed plan. Surveys have been
made by Robt. Smith, of this city,
and the work of constructing the
dams has commenced1 and. will be
prosecuted until completed.
John Tannahill of Columbus Neb.,
who is a gardener and a fruit f raiser
can tell yoU it pays to water the
garden and fruit trees. The mill
that he uses is of his" own make.
He has two of these mills that pump
into a raservoir and if 'h'e'kept them
going could irrigate eighty acres,
besides he has1 an elevator made
atter the style of Hogeland's eleva
tor that can roll up thewter. The
beets and other vegetables ftfo Tan
nahill raised are fine and the fruits
in the apple orchard is the finest
fruit seen this or any other season
and he did it by pumping water
and wetting his orchard last fall
and winter. It held lie trees back
this spring and the fruit did not
get killed. 1
The new township organization
law recently usheld by the supreme
court, has rusulted in many curious
methods for determinlpg which of
the supervisors shall .release their
offices and which shall retain them.
It is told that in Richardson county
the supervisors decided the matter
by a game of freez-out. The game
continued fox three, hours and a
good old republican .church deacon
came out ahead. In another county
the supervisors settled the matter
by an appeal to.a'gajnojjcraps. In
still another high five was played.
Most ot-the counties.however, drew
lots in the good old-fasioned way.
G.-;W. Chapman.of York has
an apple tree which he claims
has produced four crop of fruits
this year. The first apples ripened
in June, the second crop is now ripe
the third is nearly grown and the
fourth is blossoming out. Recent
frosts, however, will provent the
fourth crop from, maturing.
Thayer county raised six hundred
acres of beets this year and that is
really the only six hundred acres in
the county that has pid them any
thing this year, though they have
to 'carry the beets over to Gran
Eennie's Slaughter Sale.
