County Treasurer A. N. Durbin has
just issued tho statement of the
J amount contributed to the stnte funds
from Lincoln county for tho year be
ginning Jnnunry 1, 1913, and ending
December 31, 1913, showing a total of
$46,950.50 that was collected bv that
office for the state. This fund is for
all taxes due tho state at tho close of
year ending Dec. 31, 1913. Tho first
payment of this amount was made last
Juno and nmounted to $14,305 and the
remainder of the amount, amounting to
$32,645.50, was paid on Feb. 10, of this
This amount will be applied as fol
lows: state general fund, $23,211.15;
state normal fund, $2,082.70; state uni
versity fund, $5,264.03; state aid bridge
fund, $1,038.92; state special university
building fund $1,837.69; state school
land principal, $2,035.44; Btato school
land interest, $6,206.36; state school
land lease, $5,274.10, totalling $46,
950.50. From this it can be seen that of the
enormous tax that is paid in Lincoln
county, the state gets a good slice; and
a great deal of it is for the county ben
efit while nearly half of tho amount
goes to the gonoral fund, a largo
amount goes o the state aid bridge
fund, and in case the bridge should bo
built across tho river on the proposed
Lincoln highway, the county would re
ceive about $25,000 from tho state to
help construct tho bridge. Of this also
a large amount goes to tho university
fund and to tho school fund from which
the county receives much of the

A hog feeding experiment has re

ground and moistened 425 pounds pro
duced 100 pounds of gain on tho hogs at
a tho rate of 1.30 pounds per hog daily.
Tho hogs woighod about 100 pounds
each when they wero put into tho fat
tening pen nnd 240 pounds each when
sold. Tho selling price wns 8 conta per
pound. If fcho cost prico had been tho
same, 8 cents per pound, tho pigs
would have paid $1.18.for each bushel
of wheat eaten.
Hogs wero worth probably not ovor
6J cents jwr pound when they were
put into the feeding lot as many hogs
thruout the country wore sold at less
than this prico. If they had been bought
at this price, thoy would have paid
$1.28 for each bushel of wheat eaten.
This is just about twice the prico paid
for wheat In North Platto and other
points in Lincoln County this winter.
If these hogs has cost 8 cents when
put into the feeding lot and the wheat
fed thon valued at 65 cents per bushel,
they would have returned a not profit
per pig of $4.76 considering tho selling
price at 8 cents, or if they had cost 6
cents per pound tho not profit per pig
would havo been $6.26 valuing wheat at
65 cents per bushel nnd tho selling price
of hogs at 8 cents per pound.
Of course there was some labor in
feeding tho pigs but not many of our
farmers havo been overworked this
