Gets A Farm
Government Land With Perpet
ual Water Rights, Good Soil
and Fine Markets.
The great agricultural development
now going on in the West is attracting
widespread attention, and every "land
opening" calls out thousands of letters
of inquiry concerning the opportunity
for settlers. Just now unusual interest
centers in the Truckee-Carson irriga
tion project in Nevada, where a thou
sand farms offered to homeseekera by
the Government open alluring possi
bilities. These lands are free to every bona
fide homeseeker, the only expense,
with the exception of the nominal filing
fee, being the prorata share of the
cost of building the irrigation system.
This charge amounts to $30 per acre,
payable in ten ' annual installments,
without interest. There is no drawing
or any element of chance in applying
for one of these farms. It is only
necessary to make a homestead entry

the office of the Land Commissioner at

Runaway Accident '
Will Rummel and his son, living
about three miles Bouthwest of the city
figured in a runaway accident last Fri
day which might easily have proven
much more serious than it did. They
were out in the field with u young team
hitched to a wagon. In returning to
the barn it was necessary to cross a
narrow, deep ditch, and when the front
wheels of the wagon hit the ditch one
of the neckyoke straps broke. When
the tongue came down, Mr. Rummel
and the boy were thrown violently to
to the ground and the team started to
to run. Mr. Rummel alighted on his
head and rhoulders and for a time seri
ous internal injuries were feared,
though he was in town Saturday and
was of the opinion that perhaps he
would experience no bad after effects.
The boy was uninjured.

Omaha's Street Car System in
a Difficulty which Promises
to Become Serious.
Omaha is indulging in the metropol
itan novelty of a street car strike. A
few cars are still running on a limited

these will be tied up in a few hours.
President Wattles, however, claims
that by Tuesday morning all cars will
be running, on schedule time, that men
have been offered from other cities
experienced motor men and conductors
-offered from different cities in the
east. On the contrary, the strike lead
ers claim that but little service will be
given today and tomorrow.and that the
company will soon lose the fight.
In the meantime, at a meeting of
business men yesterday, 250 prominent
men-bankers, merchants, lawyers and
others-pledged themselves as deputies
to suppress violence. The crowds yes
terday were in the main quiet and or
derly, though in several localities riots
were narrowly averted and in a few
instances trolley wires were cut and
cars intercepted. A feature of the
day was a parade of the strikers in
which over 500 men were in line. ' Of
the arrests made none were strikers.
