gress should take hold with the mighty
hand of . the nation and make great res
ervoirs along the larger rivers, to store
the surplus water in-the spring time,
thus minimizing the danger of floods
along the lower - Mississippi and save
the expenui.ure of many millions an
nually for protection only against hign
Store this flood water in the wide
valleys of the Missouri, the Plattes,
Loups, Niobrara, White, vieyenne,
Moreau, Grand, Cannon Ball, Heart,
Little Missouri, Yellowstone, Big Horn,
M'ilk, Musselshell, Gallatin, Madison
and Jefferson to the north of us, and
the Republican, . Solomon, Arkansas,
Cimmaron, Canadian, Red, Pecas and
Rio Grande del Norte rivers to the
south and southwest, and great floods
will disappear; .the water will be held
in the upper regions till later in the
season, when the danger to the lower
Mississippi is passed; and then, after
it 'has ascended to earth as refresh
ing rain, time and again, dispelling the
hot winds and filling plant life with
vigor only obtained from natural irri
gation, much of it will be retained here
permanently. Then the plateaus and
the valleys will sing together a new
song; the god of the harvest will re
ward with a generous hand, those who
have plowed deep and planted early,
and the possibilities of this vast re
gion, 1,000 miles wide and 2,000 long,
cannot be comprehended; but the
grain and meat produced will he suf
ficient to feed 500,000,000 people-, for
nowhere is there such a fine, smooth,
rich surface, free from root and stone,
with an elevation high enough to be
healthful and seasonable. The stout
of limb and quick of intellect will be
developed in such an altitude in such
a climate; and the material wealth of
this great region cannot be estimated.
It will then rain in western Nebraska
and eastern Colorado as often and as
much as it now does in eastern Nebras
ka and western Iowa. To produce these
conditions, it will not require great ef
fort nor the expenditure of as much
money as has been appropriated each
year by congress for river and harbor
purposes. The returns from the latter
are not appreciable, while from the
former, a thousand fold would be re
turned; and we would not build or pro
vide for today, tomorrow or this gen
eration; but for a thousand years.
Now my fellow quill-drivers I am
done. I can only ask your pardon for
presenting this lengthy dissertation on
natural irrigation, dry weather and
hot winds, out of season. It would be
more appropriate on a hot, dry July
day, in the shade, yet this is the time
to prepare for the future, and if I have
entertained you with one new thought,
or if I should succeed in inducing you
to discuss the question in your valua
ble papers, the coming year, my labors
will not be in vain, and the 20th cen
tury will be the better because you and
I have attended the Nebraska state
press meeting. C. J. BOWLBY.

The Peril
Once there was some very swagger
people in an ultra village not far from
the metropolis who decided that no
society yet bunched together was ex
clusive enough for them. Even the
Colonial Dames failed to meet the re
quirements. So they determined to
start a new aggregation that should he
the real thing.
After considerable thought they con
cluded that if they limited member
ship to direct descendants of Fernando
de Soto it would be sufficiently ex
clusive for their fastidious tastes. "A
Society of the Sons' and Daughters of
de Soto" was the outcome. All the
best people in the village proved that
they were eligible and were enrolled
as charter members.
However, there was one man on the
outer fringe whose proof of descent
was not accepted; in short, he was
blackballed. This made him angry,
and he started to investigate the sub
ject. One day he published his findings
in the local newspaper. The principal
fact was this: "F. de Soto died a

Butterflies for the Parks
We called attention some time ago
to an experiment that was to be tried
in the London parks. This was the
stocking of the flower-beds with beau
tiful butterflies raised for the. purpose
from caterpillars. The plan has been
tested in Battersea Park and prom
ises to be a marked success. Some
8,200 caterpillars were placed in a
small building, fourteen feet by ten
feet, . like a greenhouse. They were
reared on f reshcut nettles, and re
cently the winged insects have been
turned loose at the rate of 400 a day.
The greatest trouble that has been
found with the success of the plan is
caused by, the rascally English spar
row, who was quick to take advant
age of this source of food supply. At
first the windows of the hatching-shed
were left open so that the butterflies
would get out as soon as they were
able to fly. The sparrows soon learned
this and waited for them just outside
of the window. But, even in spite of
these bird nuisances, the experiment
is announced as being entirely satis
factory, and next season the hatching
will be tried again. Here is a sugges
tion for some of our park officials, for
no one will question that a large num
ber of beautiful butterflies would do
much to add to the beauty of our pub
lic flower-beds. Boston Herald.
Socialistic Communities
In the last bulletin of the depart
ment of labor, the Rev. Alexander
Kent gives an account of the co-operative
communities of the United Stat
es. 1-e Shakers report seventeen so
cieties, scattered through nine states
Mtount Lebanon and Watervliet, New
York; Hancock, Harvard, and Shirley,
in Massachusetts; Enfield, in Connec
ticut; Canterbury and Enfield, in New
Hampshire; Alfred and New Glou
cester, in Maine; Union Village,
Whitewater, and Watervliet, in Ohio;
Pleasanthill and . : South - Union, In
Kentucky; . Whiteoak, in. Georgia; and
Narcoossee, . in Florida. At one time
the Shakers had 6,000 members, but
now they number less than 1,500. They
hold about 100,000 acres of land, most
of it in a hih state of cultivation.
The "Amana Society," or "Commun
ity of True Inspiration," owns 28,000
acres in Iowa and seven villages, with
1,800 population. Each village has
manufacturing industries as well as
farming, and the society conducts its
own stores. They have saw-mills,
grist-mills, tanneries, soap and starch
factories, as well as shoemaker,- tailor,
and carpenter shops. From 7 to 14
each child is compelled to attend
school the year round. From 14 to 20,
they attend in the winter season.
Children's dispositions are studied and
their natural trend of mind is as
sisted. They believe in the unity of
God, oppose war and ostentatious display-,
and hold property in common.
The latter feature was adopted to bind
the members to their religion, and the
society has steadily increased in num
bers and wealth.
Mr. Kent next speaks of the Zoar
society, whose dissolution was record
ed August 1. Passing on to the Har
mony society, we find that it has been
reduced to a membership of nine per
sons, who pay out yearly $125,000 for
the support of their village, which is
situated on the Ohio river, near Pitts
burg, and is called Economy. Most
of the residents are outsiders who con
duct the business of the community,
but the nine members form the gov
erning bouy. Ae reduction of the
original 1,000 members to nine is due
to the practice of celibacy.
The "Woman's Commonwealth." In
the District of Columbia, is the only
one of its kind in the world. 'It was
founded twenty-five years ago, by
Martha McWhirter in Bolton, Tex. The
original members entertained advanced
ideas in religion and were then de
barred from the churches; later, they
demanded equal rights from their hus
bands, with the result that their hus
bands frowned upon the society. Noth
ing daunted, they turned their atten
tion to making money, and eventually
leased a hotel in Waco, and it paid
well. In" September, 1898, they removed
to Washington, where they have a fine
residence in Mount Pleasant. They
do their own work, raise vegetables
for sale, and keep cows. One of them
is a shoemaker and another a dentist.
They live independently, seem to have
money enough for their needs, and
travel at their pleasure. They are
twenty-four members. Celibacy .is
Stirs up the Old Record
All those who have lived in Nebras
ka when the old gang of republicans
with a 30,000 majority behind them
ran things to suit thieves, wdll read
the following reminiscences printed in
the editorial columns of the Bee with
a good deal of interest. The undis
guised scoundrelism that was prac

held the offices has always been an
astonishment to every honest man who
knew the facts. It was only the invet
erate habit of republicans to always
vote 'er straight that enabled them to
hang on as long as they did, and It
was only by the importation of 20,000
voters that they were able to get back

into power again. That Kennard
swamp land deal was only one out of
a great many of the same sort of
schemes that were worked in those
days. The same old gang is back in
power and Rose water was a very ef
ficient factor in getting them back.
This writer remembers with some dis
tinctness all the villainy that Rose-
water brings to mind and as he says
the same sort of .business has bobbed
up again. While the populists held
the state house no such , dirty, work
was heard of. The Bee says:
"Tom Keanard's .hoary .and bewhisk-
ered claim . against the state of Ne
braska for $13,000. alleged to be due
him as commissions for manipulating
the swamp land and Indian : land
claims has bobbed up again as serenely
as if it had never been laid under the
table by a half dozen legislatures and
the supreme court of Nebraska.
"The Kennard swamp land claim
agency was linked in with the prolific
claim agencies of .the late Patrick O.
Hawes, but, while Hawes managed to
logroll a periodic appropriation
through the legislature by his per
suasive eloquence and percentages,
Kennard's commissions failed to ma
terialize because they were regarded
as altogether too rank. As a matter
of courtesy the legislature referred
the Kennard claims to the state courts
where they could be considered dis
passionately on their merit, but find
ing no merit in them they were re
ferred back to the claimant. But Tom
Kennard is hot a man to be rebuffed
so easily. Having failed in the state
courts, he now seeks to recover the
repudiated commissions in the federal
court, and the attorney general will
be called on to defend the state against
this irrepressible swamp land claimant.
"Incidentally, the revival of this
claim forcibly recalls an interesting
chapter of Nebraska history. Back in
the early '70's congress enacted the
so-called swamp land laws that con
veyed to such states as Arkansas and
Florida all public lands that were cov
ered by swamps.
"In 1873 Thomas P. Kennard log
rolled a bill through the legislature of
Nebraska authorizing the governor to
appoint a land claim agent on such
conditions as might be deemed Just
and equitable. Within a few months
after the passage of the bill Kennard
secured a commission under this act
by the terms of which he was to re
ceive 50 per cent of the claims col
lected. The extravagant terms of this
contract were denounced by thg press",
and the legality of the entire transac-
tion was called in question.
"With this fat commission in his
possession Kennard proceeded .'to or
ganize .the now famous swamp land
ring, which had for its object the con
version of millions of acres of unsold
public lands in Nebraska into swamp
lands and the division of the 50 per
cent commission on the sale of the
lands-among the members of the ring,
which included not only legislative
lobbyists and crooked members of the
legislature, but also members of con
gress and United States senators.
"The plan mapped out by the rihs
was to. secure the passage of an act
by congress donating to the state of
Nebraska all the swamp land, within
its boundaries. These swamp lands
were to be selected and designated by
an agent of the general land office, who
was expected to co-operate with the
ring and share in its profits. There
were. to be millions in this deal, as the
agent was expected to designate as
swamp lands every unsold piece of
land in the state which exhibited the
least sign of dampness on the surface
and have it set apart as such under the
swamp land act.
"Bills proposing to donate to the
state of Nebraska all the swamp lands
within its boundaries were introduced
in both houses of congress and the
Ingenious scheme would doubtless
have succeeded but for the refusal of
congress to enact the swamp land
bills. The failure of the conspiracy
left the swamp land schemers high
and dry and the area or the Nebra&ka
swamp lands suddenly contracted to
insignificant proportions."
