Buys Walsh Land.
Julius Pizer last Saturday purchased
the 240-acre tract of land belonging to
the Walsh estate and lying along the
railroad west of the west line of the
Cody ranch. The price paid was about
$9,000. This tract had been held by
Walsh and his estate for twenty-eight
years, and had been leased for pas
ture by adjoining farmers; not an
acre has been cultivated. Mr. Pizer
intends to have every acre cultivated
with the intention of finally putting tho
entire tract in alfalfa. He has made
arrangement to purchase six forty-
acre water right3 of the North Platte
ditch. A roomy house and barn will
be erected on the land and a large
number of trees set out; in fact Mr.
Pizer in time expects to make it an
alfalfa farm worthy the name. The
sale of the land was made through
Buchanan & Patterson.

Blowing out of wash-out plug of
engine 1822, the morning of July 27th,
1912, at North Platte, Neb.
Board of inquiry convened at North
Platte, Neb., August 3rd, 1912, to in
vestigate the cause of death of boiler
washer, Gust Louis, who was scalded
to death, July 27th, while attempting
to tighten up the belly wash-out plug
of engine 1822, find: Inspection of the
washout plug shows that threads are in
good condition, and it is our belief that
Mr. Louis did not properly tighten the
plug when he applied same in, finishing
the washing of the boiler, which re
sulted in the washout plug blowing out,
when ho attempted to tighten same.

Turkey and its affairs are still occupy
ing quite a prominent placo on the
world's stage. The life of Turkish
women seems so delightfully mysterious
to American women that they have
always been curious about it. Demetra
Vaka (Mrs. Kenneth Brown) is one of
the few women who really know the
home life of Turkish women. She has
described it in a very entertaining
fashion;in "Haremilk." In her fore-
ward she says that some of her readprs
will think some of tho episodes set
down therein are so strange that they
cannot possibly be true but she assures
us that they are. This book is on the

Slavery". The record of this man'
achievments is modestly set forth but
it is full of hope and encouragement
for those wh,o think the negro race
constitutes ono of the serious prob
lems confronting tho United States.
We are all apt to think of history as
a dry-as-dust talo but if wo read "The
Women of the Caesars" we find that
there are some very shining exceptions
to this rule. It sets forth the lives of
those ancient dames in a particularly
attractive manner and at the same
timo is historically correct according to

THE NEW BUICKS.
Advance specifications describe fully the new 1913
Buick line and especial attention is called to the com
pletion of detail and general excellence of equipment.
All of the well known Buick principles of con
struction are maintained and while improvements have
been made, no radical changes have takqn1 place.
The same idea of service and durability is upper
most and effort made to increase the already high
efficiency of each car.
The regular advance edition of the Buick catalog
is being prepared, which will show cuts of each car
and fuller descriptions. This is worth having and will
be gladly sent on request.
