Yes, Indeed, Seighbor
Wo can soil you land in tbo Wostorn part of Nebrasko
or Kansas that is lino for grazing purposes, and can soil it
But for general farming wo would recommend buying
either hern or somo locality whoro one would bo equally as
stiro, at least, of raising a good crop each yoar. If ono has
tho necessary capital to buy a farm hero wo would be glad
to sell him ono, and have a number listed that are cheap.
But if not, wo have a choice proposition in tho way of irri
gated lauds iu tho famoue Arkansas Valloy in Southeastern
Colorado, in tho neighborhood of tho woll known Rocky
ford country, that can bo sold on easy terms of 10 por cent
cash at time of purchase and the balance divided into sovon
annual payments at 6 por cent interest. The land and
wator are sold together, tho water being sold as a perpetual
The soil is rich and deep, climato mild, drinking wator
soft and pure, market for ovorythinggood,oxcollent schools
and churches, and a fine now beet sugar factory already
erected, besides another now railroad and sugar faotory
will be erected this year. Tho one just finished cost u mil
lion and a quarter dollars.
The first thing to be considered in deciding on a loca
tion in an irrigated country is tho wator supply. Tbo Amity
and Buffalo canals are among tho earliest priorities on the
Arkansas river. The Amity Land Co. has spent millions of
dollars.in rebuilding and strengthening these canals and
placing at all points of dungor indestructible concrete
structures, and also in construoting'rosorvoirs of enormous
size to supplement iheir flow of water. This has been done,
not'only as an insurance that tho wator supply cannot fail,
but in order to make absolutely certain a supply of water
at such times as tho crops may demand. These reservoirs
contain enough water to irrigate all of tho lands under tho
Amity canal with no rainfall and supposing that the water
supply from tho river failed entirely. The priority of a
canal gives it its wator without rospoct to its location on
the river, and there aro proper state ollicials who divide the
wator iu the river according to tho priority rights which
each caual has.
Every man wo havo taken out to view this proposition
thinks it is a good one: talk to them. Remember, wo havo
viewed the reservoirs ourselves and find there is absolutely
no question but that the water system is tho best in the
United States and that if you buy any of this land under
tho ditch you will got all the water needed to mature the
crops. Come in and wo will exglain further.
Our special car from Suporior out and return on thoGth

The reduced faro will bo 810 for tho round trip for these
two trips, but after that dato will moro than likely be
higher. Remembor, if you mako tho trip with us and feel
we havo misrepresented tho conditions and you aro not
satisfied it is as advertised, wo will refund your fare.

additional difficulty of tho school

Editor Chief I have finally found
a place that suits mo very well and
havo bought a homo. It is a now
town on tho oloctrio car lino is not far
from Los Angeles. It is building up
very fast aud as tho lots each contain
a half acre we will never bo crowded.
It is a very pleasant place and sooms
to be quite healthful. Aftor tho cold
of last winter in Nebraska wo enjoy
the 'climate horo very much, although
the "oldest inhabitants" say that it is
tho coldest winter thoy havo had in
many years. There has boon frost a
good many nights, und ono or two
quite hard freezes, sd that it has hurt
tho young orange trees. Tho birds
aro here; thoy camo horo from tho
north and thoro aro moro horo now
thun in the summer. Oranges com
menced to get ripe a month ago. They
are brought right to our door, and wo
got them for 8 cents a dozen, large,
fine navel oranges. Thoy will bo
cheaper later on.
Tho Chinese gardonor brings us
young onions, cauliflower, spinach,
pie plant and several othor vegetables,
fresh from his garden, but no greon
peas this winter tho frost was too
much for them. Wo have nice, sunny
weathor all tho timo, and occasionally
a cloudy day. There has been very
little rain, but wo hopo thoro will bo
more, or wo'H havo to depend upon

tho water is piped to tho houso, all wo
want for houso uso and irrigation pur

largo audience at tho opera house
Wednesday night. Thoro was hardly
a redeeming feature about tho entire
purformanco, though tho audience was
at times compelled to laugh at the
grotesque attempts of the alleged
actors to carry tho parts thoy woro
representing. Tho heavy villain,
"Hank Jarvis." reminded ono of a
hollowing bull turned loose on tho
strot'ts. It seemed impossible for him
to lower his volco oven in tho most
aireoting scenes. "Frank Hartwoll,"

moved like an automaton, having tho
appearance of being wound up and
moved by clock-work. Tho loss said
about tho heroine, tho bettor. Tho
specialties by tho negro "Kph" woro
absolutely rotten. It is but just to
tho managomont of tho opera houso to
say that thoy wero takou in along with
tho rest of us, and refused tho com-
