Secretary Miller of the Cass
County Agricultural society re
ceived the following communica
tion from K. W. Furnas in relation
to a Cass county exhibit at the
state fair. The society will have a
meeting in a short time and will
then take action in the matter, and
from the present outlook Cass
county will have a fine exhibit at
the state fair:
Dear Sir: The management of
the Nebraska state board -of agri
culture realizes that at our annual
expositions, in so far as a presenta
tion of the products of the soil
direct is concerned, results depend
largely on county collective ex
hibits. To encourage to this end,
more money has been added to that
class, and the number of premiums
increased from ten last year to
seventeen for the fair held in Lin
coln this year, September 2 to 0.
Ah heretofore, we pledge every
effort to make an exhibit of this
characterof benefit to all concerned.
I trust you will see the importance
of this medium of presenting to the
public the products of your local
ity. The coming fair will surpass
any of its predecessors. Come to
the front with a collective exhibit
that will aid your county.
l'lease signify to me as earl, as
possible your determination in the
matter, and the approximate space
you wish, that provision may be
made. In this we must be advised
at least three weeks before the fair
opens, in order to provide satisfac
tory accommodations, tend your
application for space to the sccre-

LARGE STOCK OF
A BRIGHT IDEA.
A Kearney Man Who Would Utilize
the Waters of the Platte.
Front Fridays Dally.
The greatest scheme of the centu
ry for the development of Nebraska,
Colorado and Wyoming is now be
ing discussed in Kearney, North
I'latte and other cities along the
Platte river. It originated in the
nundofold Colonel Patterson of
Kearney, who first figured out how
to make Kearney a manufacturing
city by giving her the water power
she now has. Patterson was called
a crank, whose brain was tilled
with wild fanatic schemes which
could never be made practical real
ities. Hut having solved the prob
lem of water power for Kearney, the
colonel has now tinned his atten
tion to the matter of obtaining wa
ter power for the states tif Nebras
ka, Wyoming and Colorado. His
scheme is to commence near the
mouth of the Platte river, whence
the stream empties into the Missou
ri river and build a canal along the
valley of the Platte, wide enough
and deep enough for heavy freight
boats, extending it along the full
length of the main river to this city
and from here extend one branch
up the South Platte to Denver and
another up the North Platte into
Wyoming. The heads of both riv
ers are not far apart in Colorado,
and the scheme is to connect them
together with the canal, so as to
form a circuit front this city through
Wyoming and Colorado. Then the
idea is to build waterworks similar
to those at Kearney whenever nr
ccssary and convenient along
the line, so as to obtain
electricity for manufacturing, heat
ing and lighting purposes and to
run the canal boats and electric
passenger cars. The members of
congress from the northwestern
states will be asked to obtain uu ap
propriation by the government of
about flUO.lX for a preliminary sur
vey, audit is thought that a com
pany can be organized, which, with
the aid of bonds to be voted by the
counties, precincts and cities inter
ested, will push the canal through
to completion in about three years.
The proje:t is a great one for
Nebraska it it can be worked, and
to those who understand tne fact
that a few feet underground all
along the Platte valley there is a
strong current of water continually
flowing through the sand it seems
practicable to build such a canal
with plenty of water in it at all times.
A waterway of that character, with
the electric power which could be
made by it at frequent intervals
along the route, would be a wealth
producer that would far eclipse
anything ever heard of in the
history of the world. It would
build up Western Nebraska with
factories and farms side by side; it
would bring home markets to the
farmer and solve the transportation
question. There are billions in it if
capitalists will take hold of it and
spend millions to get it out. Lin
Observance of Columbus Dav.
Tin-; Hkkai.1) believes every pupil
in the state public schools will wish
to participate in the uniform cele
bration of America's birth into the
re. dm of civilization. Is it not an
inspiring thought that on October 12
f'om Plymouth Rock to the Golden
Gate, pupils will be engaged in un
furling and cheering the starry em-1
idem, singing the same songs, and
delivering the same orations? In
doing this they will not only learn
valuable truths of history, but inci
dentally bring to the thought of
every intelligent citinn what Amer
ica owes to free education.
Teachers should begin at once to
make preparations for exercises
worthy of the tlay. They should in
struct their pupils to watch the pa
pers and clip from their columns
all articles relating to the celebra
tion. The official program, which will
be announced by the executive
committee on or before September
l.will embrace an ode, a national
song, a recitation and a brief ora
tion. Raising and saluting the
school-house flag will also be a
part of the morning exercises.
These will be uniform features of
the local observances throughout
the country. Nearly all schools
will elaborate the program in vari
ous ways, and doubtless some very
unique ideas will be brought out.

The Herai.I) is in receipt of the
annual report of the Nebraska state
board of agriculture for m, with
the compliment, of Robert W
Secretary Rusk's Views.
From Saturday' puiy
Secretary Rusk said to-day: "Mr.
Harrison's nomination is only the
logical coiu lu.-i..n of the unanimous
verdict of approval passed upon
his administration. The short term
of four years justifies a renomina
tion by his party, whenever a prcsi
dent's administration receives the
country's unqualified endorsement.
Moreover, stability ol public affairs
is essential to the hut-mess interests
ot the country which always sulTcr
from frequent changes"!
A report which gained general
circulation that Secretary Mlaine
bad placed his resignation in Un
hands of the president is officially
contradicted. It was followed soon
after by another that if be had not
done so already he certainly would
do so before the convention meets.
All sorts of rumors are being cir
culated. One of the latest of which
the president is a victim is to the
cited (hat it by Saturday night Mr.
Mlaine has not written a letter de
clining to have his name used at
Minneapolis, Mr. Harrison will
recognize him as a candidate and
withdraw his own candidacy. At
the white house this was said to be
too absud to be considered, much
less denied. Another story, which
received mon credence for a time,
has it that Cliauucey M. Depew has
sent a telegram to some of the
leading republicans, the purport of
which is that the conservative men
of the party at Minneapolis are
seriously concerned at Hie grave
possibility of dissension in the party
unless a change is made in the tac
tics of Mr. illaine's friends. The
plan of action proposed is to haven
mutual friend of Mr. Mlaine ami Mr.
Harrison call tipt'it Mr. 1 Uaiac to-day
and urge him to use the same frank
ness and candor now that he dis
played in 1SSM. This story cannot
be traced to any authoritative
source, nor can it be learned that
any conference of republican lead
ers to take action in this direction
has been called, and the story is

Charles Meyer, a farmer living
