CURRENT COMMENT ABOUT PEO
PLE AND THE THINGS THEY
ARE DOING HEltE.
There aro moro men listed nt tlio
Lincoln County Farm Bureau for work
than can bo supplied with a Job. This
is unusual at tho harvest time and
shows something of the unusual con
ditions which prevail this year. How
ever the number of unemployed Is los3
than It waB a few months ago and
really Is confined largely to young
men and transients.
County Agent Kellogg is to glvo a
culling demonstration at tho Grant
McNeil farm this afternoon. Those
demonstrations have proven so valu
able to poultry raisers that there is a
domand for them from all parts of tho
county. Mr. Kellogg Is glad to go to
any part of tho county whero tho
farmers want him for demonstration
purposes. Of course ho has to ar
rango his dates so as not to conflict
with other engagements.
J. W. McMichael, tho south Dewey
street grocer is building an 18 by CO
foot concreto block addition to his

Mr. MoMichaol rccontly opened :t
branch storo at tho south-cast corner

the start. '
Thro have been some good rains in
Lincoln county within tho past few
weeku. but they have been local and
WVrellofc from tho-drputh to ,somo
sections while others have had no
rain to speak of. This is shown in. tho
wheat crop which has Just been har-j
vested. Tho yields varied In the same
precinct from nothing to eighteen
bushels an ucro and tho main reason
is lack of moisture. With corn it is
flomowhnt different. Good cultivation
will carry a field of cornia long ways
further than whero tho cultivation
has been poor. Somo fields are in
good shape now while others are
gone and they have had tho same rain
fall. Composition of tho soil and cul
tivation aro importanUfactors in re
taining tho moisture

According to tho prosont plans, Just
one-half of tho brldgo ovor tho south

bo used for a while but it was not

It Is planned to take off tho concreto
railing, widen tho floor eighteen inches

a twenty-foot width brldgo. If thoy

The Municipal Bathing Beach is a
reality. Hundreds of people aro tak
ing a plungo there ovcry day. It may
bo some time before people get over
calling it tho North Side Swimming
Hole tut tho fact that it is an attempt
by tho city to provide safe amusomont
for tho peoplo should lead everyone
to appreciate this effort and glvo tho
Park Board credit for tho result.
Messors Thoolccke, Bare and Elliott
woro tho members of tho Park Board
when tho matter was first brought
up. Thoy conslderqd It from every
angle. Thoy had jomo funds In tho park
treasury and they had been saving
those funds to do somo needed work
on Memorial and City parks. Tho de
mand for thi. bathing beach became
stronger and stronger. Different plans
were offered. At last after many mis
givings and doubts, but upon assur
ances from the city engineer and
others of its success, thoy contracted
for tho work on the bathing beach
citizens called it ft mud noie. utnors
said it was poorly located. Others
complained of this and that and pre
dicted failure in the end. Tho water
would "'I seep away. Tho irrigation
ditch would not carry the wator and
so on nnd so on. The men gave their
consent to the project but none ot
them remained on tho Board to see
"It completed. Now that It has proven
a success, somo of tho peoplo who
wero unfavorable at first aro enthu
siastic in its praise. There aro diffi
culties to be overcome but thoy aro
those whose solution Is in sight. As
the years go by tho Municipal Beach
will bo improved and increasingly bo
come ono of tho chief attractions of
the city and thousands will enjoy tho
luxury of a place to enjoy tho water
