Work performed on tlto roads in
the spring of the year Ih worth twice
as much as work dono in the fall.
Our streets neod attention and we
trust that the city council will .seo the
wisdom of putting thorn in condition
this spring Wc ought not to have
poorer roads in the city than they
liavo in the country.
As an Instance of "class legislation,"
noto the now law which provides that
it is now an olTonso against poace and
dignity of tho stato of Nebraska to
camp on tho public highway within 10
rods of any man's houso without tho
6wncrs permission. And just to
think tho men who came here in
"covered wagons" literally mado the
state. Such a law smacks of the in
gratitude displayed by tho young cad
who, grown snobbish amid city sur
roundings, is ashamed of his father
and mother from the country. Camp
The sentiment for tho Maurer
springs seems to be crystalizing into
something dolinito. This city will
never be satisfied until thoso springs
arc connected with our wator plant
and unless the city takes tho initiative
the Burlington will acquire title to
the wator. Tho plan that meets with
the most approval at present is to pe
tition the council to call an election
for the purpose of issuing bonds to the
amount or ten thousand dollars.
Six thousand to be used in gotting
the wator, two thousand to bo used for
placing mains in the south ward and
two thousand in the north ward. The
amount in tho north ward to be equal
ly divided between tho northeastern
and northwestern portions of, the city
This plan will be really better than
tho one proposed ut tho last election
in that it will place our system upon

lioust: that Would have the water if it
woio good and if the distance lo the
mains were not so great. The city is
larger limn it wan when litis plant
was Installed and It docs not nearly
meet present requirements.
lillo wo are on this subject we
might cay that before any proposition
Is submitted to the voters It would be
well furjiuy person not thoroly In
fortnod from llrat hand Information to
visit tho power plant anil sco tho con
ditions an they are. IIo will then
know how to act to his best ndvant
age. We used to be fairly content
when wo wero told that the south
well furnished vpraolicHlly all tho
wator which was pumped. We now
know that was far' from trtio. Wc
now know that after the south well
has been allowed ,U remain idle for
llvo or six hours that it takes but
forty minutes to drain It dry. We
now know tlintwc have used the creek
for years at all seasons of the year
and we now know that the records
show this to be a fact. Ask any oagi
neer who has ever worked hi our plant
ami he will tell you that the crock
has furnished more water than the
well ever did It is time lo yet down
to business and if thero are any state
merits made as to tho conditionseither
past or present let them bo of such a
nature that they may be made in u
public meeting whoro they can be
veiillud or disproved. Now for the
spring water in earnest.
Location for the Western Nebraska
Now that thero is to bo S 100,000
spent in establishing an agricultural
school in southwestern Nebraska, all
the towns in that district aio making
a scramble for tho institution. It
seems to us that a few honest ques
tions should be asked, and answered
honestly. In tho llrst place, who foots
tho bill? Most assuredly, the entire
state. What is tho purpose of this
school'. Professedly to teach the ris
ing generation how to farm. Who
gets the benelltV The stato.
Now, theie may bo some question as
to whether ostablishinganothor school
of this character was wise or other
wise. It may bo a rich plum for the
city that secures the location, but
thero can be no honest debate over its
location. Wo already have one very
ofllciont school located in Lincoln,
which accommodates all students in
central and eastern Nebraska. It also
accommodates students from western
Nebraska, but naturally its activities
arc mainly directed toward increasing
the elllciency of farmers located in a
region which resembles Iowa and Illi
Now, everyone who knows anything
about this state of oars is well aware
of tho fact that western Nebraska is
as dill'oront from eastern Nebraska as
if the two regions were not of one po
litical division. The soil is different,
tho atmosphere is different, tho rain
fall is different. Instead of studying
how to mako two blades of grass grow
where one grow before, tho problem is
to make one blado grow where there
never was one bofore. With all duo

J. C. MITCHELL,
respect to our present Instructors at
the Stato Agricultural college, we are
of the opinion that if they were
planked down on ti farm in westorn
Nebraska and wore told to "exercise
their probscis or forever cease to ex
1st," thoy would not be able to raise
more than a storm of indignation. No,
sir! This school will not bo of any
benefit to the taxpayers of this state
unless It is located right in the heart
of this laud and climate which is so
To place tills school In Holdredgo,
Hastings or Ked Cloud would be a
waste of money. It would be but du
plicating the school at Lincoln, and
what would be saved In car faro would
be lost in ofllcicuoy.
In our opinion, this school should
not bo located farther east than Cam
bridge or McCook. Heie conditions
arooutirely different than they are
"back east." and one must know his
business if he makes a living out or
the soil. People do make a living
there and those who know -the kinks
are as wealthy as many of their east
ern brothreti. Hut it takes ability to
learn tho country and to do things
differently from what they do in mud
ridden Illinois or Indiana.
We do not care a fig which town
will ultimately crow because It has
been successful in getting this school,
but we do care a littlo whether It will
prove to be what it is designed to be
or whether it serves only to promote
political itspitations or pay political
debts. Service is demanded, and in
order to be of service this school must
be where it can help western Ne
braska solve the problem of making
that section blossom as tho rose.
