If all the land used by six Nebras a railroads for right of way pur poses were put into a single strip one mile wide, it would reach from Lin coln to Omaha in one direction and rom Lincoln to Hastings in the other, a total distance of 1G5 miles. This would make 1.C00 farms of 00 acres each and have enough left over for half a dozen big ranches, it it were all farmed to wheat and th' average production were 25 bushels to an acre, it would yield enough of that cereal to fill 2,040 freight cars with a capacity of 1,000 bushels each. If alfalfa were raised on this acre age devoted to right of way purposes, it would produce, at the rate of three tons per acre, a yearly crop of 310,000 tons. Two contending armies using all the modern paraphernalia of war could maintain trench systems ex tending for a distance of over 100 miles and keep several' millian soldiers busy within the area which represents the total right of way acreage of the six railroad companies referred to. These ideas are suggested by fig ures in the possession of Secretary Bernacker of the state board of equal ization, taken from reports filed by the Burlington, Union Pacific, North western, M. & O., Rock Island and Grand Island roads. The Missouri Pa cific is not included because its fig ures are not complete. Altogether, the right of way area for the six roads amounts to 105.591 acres, or approximately ICS square miles. This is equal to one-half the total area of Sarpy county and about 29 per cent of the acreage of Lancas ter county. It is divided as follows: Burlington, 45.976 acres; Union Pa cific, 30,544; Northwestern, 19,210; M. & O., 4,191; Rock Island, 3,r10; Grand Island, 2,054. The figures were secured from the railroads in order to compare them with reports furnished by county as sessors in making up the railroad tax valuations for the current year. nsiirance Farm Loans uick -Deal Office and Salesroom SLEY SLOCK Tel.

The fol lowing statement by General Gavira, who claims it i3 a telegram fr om Ltir ranza, confirms the report that Villa has been injured. "I have confirmed from witnesses, among others, one of my own soldiers who was made prisoner at Namiquipa, that the bandit. Villa, was wounded in the knee so that he was unable to mount his horse." Another message to Gavira from Luis Gutierrez, Carranza's field com mander, says: "Villa is fleeing, seri ously wounded, and he has divided his main body into several small bands."

This brush which is 9 inches in length is located between and operated by four small rub ber tired driving wheels and is equipped with an automatic spring, made of gen uine piano wire. This spring tension on the brush, which is entirely independent of the four driving wheels, gently holds the brush in position for perfect sweep ing on long, short or medium nap rugs or carpets. This brush movement is en tirely automatic and there are no levers to be moved or adjustments to be made on any part of the machine to do perfect sweeping. This is positively the only combination vacuum sweeper ever invented having a brush which automatically adjusts itself to sweep perfectly on all kinds of floor coverings.
