State Assessment Hoard Will Increase
the Sum About Million and
a Half Dollars.
Lincoln. Neb., May 21. A valua
tion aggregating l,r00.000 will likely
be atached to the railroad end of the
state tax roll this year as a re?ult of j
the deliberation of the state as.-es-ment
The increase will be on main line
mileage and not upon branch lines.
It will be moderate, in the eyes of
the board, and will not operate to
the serious disadvantage of any of
the carriers. At the tame time the
land value increase in the state at
large will be not less than that
amount, in all likelihood, according: to
Auditor Smith, with Secretary of
State Tool, favored the increase from
its first proposal today.
Figures collected by the board from
twenty-one counties show an increase
of valuation of lands about 23 per
cent in the past tix years and an
increase of 45 per cent in taxes. The
same tables show a total tax increase
of S3 per cent for the Union Pacific i
and 23 per cent for tha Burlington

Won by a Bluff.
Wlion the armies of Xapoleou were
jverpjiining Europe, General Massena,
with Is.(kx) men, suddenly appeared
before the Austrian town of Feld
kiivh and demanded its surrender. In
stead of complying, the burgomaster
issued orders that the church bells
wore to be set ringing and that the
burghers, their wives and daughters,
clad In holiday attire, were to assem
ble in the market square and there
The result was exactly what he had
hoped for. Massena heard the sounds
of rejoicing, watched from the heights
overlooking the town the gathering
throngs in the streets and came to the

formed no part of Napoleon's general
plan of action, Massena ordered a re
treat. Feldkirch was saved, and by a
bluff, for as a matter of fact no reliev

the Almanack printed was sent to
Colonel Markham, Fenn's deputy, who
reported to the council that the book
had erroneously declared Pennsylva

a high sounding title and directed the
author and printer (William Brad
