LAND IN DAKOTA.
the Government's Free Lands
May Be 8ocurod.
Eatriee Fader the Hokmeetead, Pre
raapUoa mad Timber Coltore
ralnud" In The Inter-Ocean. '
There la alwaya a claae of piODocra who are
Dolther pracUoti farmera nor provident mou,
read to more oa or oat about tbo time of prov
ing tip. These pre-emptore without a pur
pose, and homateadera without a hope, after
going through more or lees hardships in com
plying In a manner with the provisions of tho
law, are willing to sell out for a song. By im
proving their opportunities of this kind, per
sons who are either in Dakota to atay, or to
make a comfortable Investment, can easily and
at littlo expense obtain what they want
The great rush is, however, for tho free
lands of the government, and as long as the
best lands are to be secured under the benefi
cent laws of congress, pooplo who road for in
formation about Dakota will wish to know
more concerning them and the methods of ac
quiring them than to be put on the track of
bargains in deedod real on la to.
80 many inquiries h.tvo been sont me, for
the pcrposo of obtaining exp icitldirections as to
just what the laws are in relaxation to the
three rights of tho American citizen to help
himself to a farm at Undo Ham's expense, that
I thought I would incorporate in this letter
a clear and concise statement of the United
States land laws, for which I am indebted to
several sources of information.
Tbo free lands of tho United States govern
ment are ouiamou unaor me iiomcstcau, pre
emption and timber-culture acts.
To obtain a homestead tltp party must, on
making his application or filing, make an
affidavit that he is over the age of 21, aud
stato whether ho is the head of a family; that
ho id a citizen of the United States, or has de
clared bis intention to become such, an d that
the entry is made for his own use and bene
fit, and for purposes of actual settlement and
cultivation. Ho is roquired to pay a total fee
of $14 at the land oflioo.
After having rcuidc-d upon and cultivated
this land for a continuous period of five years,
during which ho must not lu been absent
from t!ie land for a longer interval than six
m.mths at any one time, the homosteador is ro-
a uired to make fi:ikl proof of the same before
10 proper laud ollicors, or a constituted judi
cial oilicer in his district, and on payment of a
further foo of $t will be given a final receipt
for h s land, which serves all legal purposes of
a deed uu.il his regular patent is issued in duo
course of time.
Tho honisUiader may, if he so electa, com
mute his entry after a bona tide residence upon
and cultivation of the land for six months, and
prove up, oy paying me government price,
which is ordinarily $1.2o an acre, or, if the
laud Los within a railroad grant, $2.50 an
Soltaers and sailors who served during th i
lafe war of tho rebellion may deduct the time
of ench service (not to exceed four years) from
the five years' ruaidoDee required of the others ;
thus a man who served three vears will have
to reside on his homestead but two years in
order to secure a patent This benefit is ex
tended to widows or minor orphan children of
such persons aa would have been entitlod to
Soldiers or sailors, as above, may filo their
claims for a tract of land through an agent,
artvr which they have six months in which to
make resilience upon the land. Thus a soldier
who wan'B to secure an immediate selection,
and cannot come on at once to do it, can send a
power of attorney to an agent here, who can
select the land and file upon it, and the Boldier
so sending can wait six months before coming
All others, except tho class last mentioned,
are obliged to make their application in person.
All lands obtained under the homestead laws
are exempt from liabilities for debts contracted
prior to issuing patent therefor.
Under the pre-emption laws the government,
in consideration of residence and cultivation
on the part of the pre-emptor, virtuallv agrees
to convey 1SJ acres of land, after the provisions
of the law have been complied with, on pay
ment of $1.25 per acre for tho land, except
where the land lies within thelimits of a rail
road grant, when $2.50 an acre double min
imum is charged for it
To secure a pre-emption the party must
rst make settlement by the erection of a claim
nnaniy or snacic or otherwise, and afterward
file his declaratory statement at any time within
three months after the date of such settlement,
for which a fee of $2 is charged at the land
office. Final proof may be made at any time
after six months, or within thirty months, on
the. pnyuient of tho prico of the land as above
Parties owning 320 acres of land in any Btate
or 'territory, or who would leave their own land
in the same state or territory in order to move
on to government band, are prohibited the ex
ercise of the pro- emption right
The cultivation both of a pre-emption and of
a homestead consists in breaking and cultivat
ing a ny where from a f o w to ten acres of ground,
according to the character of claimant's com
pliance witn the letter and spirit of laws,
which are certainly liberal enough to be fairly
carried out, and residence is taken to mean the
establishment of a home from which a person's
absence should largely depend on thenecessitv
therofor in the maintenance of a livelihood. "
Under the timber culture act, 1G0 acres of
land may bo obtained bv porsonB who are over
31 years old or heads oi families, and are cit
izens of tho United States or have declared
their iuhrntiou to become such.
The party making an entry of 1G0 acres un
der the provisions of this act is roquired to
break or plow five acres the first year and five
or more the second year.
The five acres bioken the first year he is re
quired to cultivate during the eecend year, and
to plant in timber seeds or cuttings during
tha third year. The live acres broken the
second year he is required to cultivate during
tho third year, and to plant timber seeds or
-atriums duriug tho fourth year.
Not leas than 2,7C0 trees, Reeds, or cuttings
must le planted on each acre, and at tho time
of making final proof there shall be growing

The fiuel proof can be made and patent ob

CHILOATS AND H00-0HE-H00.
The Aeltatlou of tlie 1'resideiit anil
tlie Neeretary or the Xnvy.
Washington Letter in N. Y. World.
One morning last week Secretary Chandler
was observed to rush down the steps of tho
navy department and make a bee line for the
White House, holding a telegram in his hand.
The president, who was having the finishintr
curl put to his whiskers, observed him coming,
and knowing that something had happened,
proceeded with as much haste as presidential
dignity permits down stairs. Secretary Chand
ler met him at tho door and rushed into the
Blue room followed by the president "What
do you think of that, Mr. President?" he
gasped as he handed the yellow slip to him.
Tho president read .it with a darkening brow
and a blanching check. It was from Com
mander Merriman, of tho Adams, now iu
Alaska. It read thus: "The Chiluats are in
dignant and r of uso to make any hoc-che-uoo. "
"Ilefuse to make any hoo-che-noo, do they':"
howled the secretary, charging around. "I'm
blanked if I kiiow who the Chilcuts
are or what hoo-che-ujo is, but blanked
f they shan't m:iko it, as sure as
my name is William E. Chandler. Be.,' your
pardon, Mr. President " But what are vou
going to do about it, Sir. Secretary?" aaked'tho
president ""Shall I issue an executive procla
mation commanding all good citizens in Alaska
to make hoo-che-noo right away? Or I'll send
the Tallapoosa down there to get aground and
make them pull her ofT, or tho Alarm with her
$100,000 steam steering gear that won't work."
"The Alarm can't go," gloomilv responded tho
secretary, "because she wants a liver-pad on
her condenser and a porous-plaster on her
donkey engine, to say nothing of tho shin
plasters she neods all tlie time. Besides, sho
turned bottom upward the other day when her
steam steering gear got to work and all the
officers' clothes have got to be washed. But
the blanked hoo-che-noo! I'll find out hoo-chee-noo
before she knows it herself." "And
the Chilcats?" murmured the president "Oh,
that's easy enough," responded SvUliam. "I
have just got to go down to the ethnological
bureau of the anthropological society and they
have dead loads of Chilcats down there. It's
a furbearing animal."
"But I thought yon said," meekly interposed
the president, "that you were not going to bo
fur-bearing with them.
"I don't know what I Baid, Mr. President,"
snapped Chandler, highly irritated," but I mean
to get at the bottom of this hoo-che-noo busi
ness if it costs me my portfolio."
" Let's got the dictionary, " sug
gested the president Four liveried flunkies
entered with an armful of dictionaries. "You
take Worcester and I'll take Webster," proposed
the president, to which Chandler agreed.
No hiK-che-noo was to lie found, but Chilcat
was. It was a tnbo of Indians in Alaska.
"Ton said they wore fnr-bearing animals,"
reproachfully remarked the president
"Well, so I did," said Chandler, looking rather
sheepish, ''but it seems to me that that highly
nguiauvo tesiioiu me so.
"If I were you I shouldn't believe all Senator
Vest's yarns. Vest, yon see, is subject to hal
lucinations about fish he has caught, and bo
on, and ho has several times told me things
that I wouldn't I wouldn't have believed if
anybody elso but Vest had told me. But hoo-che-noo
suppose you inquire if there is a
hoo-che-noo at tho patent office?" Accordingly
the secretary trotted off to the patent office, the
tiostofiice and tho pension office, all to no avail,
ut when ho reached tho navy department,
weariod and discouraged, there, from the verv
first point of observation, the solution was hail
Tito Chilcats are dwellers in Alaska and hoo-chee-uoo
is a liquid possessing some of the
charms of Kentucky bourbon, and the Chilcats
hnd notified Commander Merriam that if he
did not do something or other they would con
tinue to hold the hoo-che-noo in bond until
somebody arrived or something happened.
Tho President who expected to toss on his
sleepless oouch tortured with the mystery
of hoo-cho-noo, did not lose ono wink of Bleep.
San Francisco Call,
The mind eats an idea. The image absorbed
must bo either retained and digested or it
must be vomited back into forgetfuluess. This
theory alone explains the fact that the rural
bred boy so uniformly excels in strong com
mon sonse the crammed occupant of our city
schools. Constant retching destroys tho vigor
af thcstomach ; so, the perpetual cram of
matter which nobody expects will be retained
is making our school children dyspeptics.
Readers of the biographies of sclf-mado men
note the fact that these self-builders have had
a very limited supply of printed mat
ter; therefore such as they had was
well digested. I have - mado tins matter a
subject of thought for several years. The
Sro.essiou of pedagogy can never obtain its
ue recognition until tne mind's state is known
beyond caviL As a preliminary step to this
desiduratnm I am perfecting an apparatus by
means of which tho operations of cha mind,
may be noted aud timed. 1 uso a stop watch,
to tike the timo consumed in the absorption of
an im.ige l y the braiu through the ear and
through tho eye. By deducting tho time em
ployed in a incre mechanical repetition of tho
names of the images employed, I get the period
actually consumed in the process of mental di
gestion. Tho difference of time required
amoug a class of pupils to receive and to re
turn an iiuae of the mind" is really astonish
ing. ' It must be borne in nond that when an
intelligible sound enters tho brain through the
ear, tlie braiu must rapidly seiz-i upon some
standard object of the kind and luild up a
brain counterpart before tho 6onnd becomes
livo enough to return aaiu to the teacher.
Thus, if 1 call out "pig," tlie ptrpd seizes upon
Borne mental picture of an animal familiar to
all; it is elected in the brain structure and is
then ready for reiteration. By going about a
class of forty pupils, giving every one a word
in rapid succession, I get the exact time of the
exorcise. By repeating to uivself, in the same
common time, the words used, I am enabled to
get the difference of time between the receipt
and delivery and . the mere delivery. Tins
time represents the period of mental digestion.
I think the process can and will be reduced to
a scientific basis. I think, too, that in the
hereafter the services of a teacher will be
measured in part by scientific calculation, such
as here outlined. When this can be done there
will be a new era for professional school
teachers aud a licaira fir mere ochoolkeeners.

At daybreak tho river front was vocal with
canine warblihgs, and the bickerings and im

flo-ked from every quarter of tho city dragging
every variety of dog in the fancier's catalogue,
as well as out of it. The ofticars of tbo Ma

on deck to find tho deck a conglomerate mass
of curs and street arabs. A few inquiries
were made, and a brief counsel was held to de

and one of the officers appointed to buy up tho

from five ce-its to a quarter, and as rapidly as
the sales were consummated the miserablo

This scheme worked satisfactorily until it was
discovered that tho demand increased faster
than it diminished, and aa both tho pool and
destruction committeos wore about exhausled,
tho measure of last resort was determined on,
and tho poltee were called to tho rescue. A
squad of blue-coats finally succeeded in clear

joker was probably satisfied.
Hotels on t ie European Plan.

A New York hotel man, speaking of tho
European plan, said its results had been won
derful, and there was no likelihood of a chango
back to tho American. His house, he added
fed five times as many persons as it supplied
with apartments. Business men in the vicinity
had no time to go home for lunch, and they
came to the house to satisfy their appetites
He know of several families who ha l given up
their own table owing to tho excellence of tho
cuisine of the hotel, and were regular patrons
of tho house. Tho variety was large and tl-ey
could always get what they wanted. Tins was
a feature of tho hotel business that had become
marked in a short time and promis ed to grow
io greair proportions. aaKiug meals in tins
way would be found less expensive to tho.-se
who Knew now to order. .Large dishes wore
served. In most instances one order answered
for two, except individual dishes. In no
American city was tho European plan so gen
erally in voguo as in New York, but tho hotels
of the other large cities, the speaker said, would
soon navo to adopt it. li nests were better
satisfied, and would demand, it. Thero were
hotels that still adhered to tbo American clan.
but they enjoyed what might almost be termed
exclusive cIhsscs of patronage and occupied
positions peculiarly meir own.

A. German chemist has invented a new kind

general uso, greatly diminish, if not altogether
remove, the horrors of war. The bullet is of

aimed. It- contains a powerful anesthetic,
producing instantaneously complete insensi

that the action of the heart continues, is not to

where these bullets are used will in a short
