purtuned to do so.

Judge Sulhvan is of the
opinion that cattle die of cornstalk -
stalk disease only when they feed
on stall8 where the corn was
Ih ed and bases his opimon upon
actual experience. He turned a
bunch of cattle into a field where
be ground was plowed and
planted and none died. From
this field into one listt d and they
begun to die , them turned into
another nol listed and he lost
none. 'rhey were taken from
that to another listed field and
again they commenced turning-
their toes to the sky. Since then
he has kept the stock 011t of the
listed corn stocks and there has
been 110 more obituaries , hence
no card 01 thanks which are very
inappropriate for either beast or
man , the custom being a decidly
back number in this day and age
of the world.

Lincoln , Apri116 , 1907.
Broken Bow.
DEAR SIR : Answering yours
relative to the payment of wolf
bounties , permit me to advise
) 'ou that the appropriat\p.1J \ , for
the p3yment of t es la 1ns has
been y to d by tlW governor and
there will be no pa'ment on like
claims until some legislature
makes provision for the same.
Very truly yours ,
E. M. SEAHLU , JR. , Auditor ,
This means just what it says
and there's no rieed , uf bringing
or sending wolf scalps to the
cuunty clerk and eJ pecting a
bo"nty either this veal , " or ne t.
Another session of the legislature
must pass an appropriation which
the governor approves' before any
more bounty w111 be paid , and
there's no necd of writing the
county clerk about it because he
can enl } ' tell ) 'on the facts as
stated in the above letter from
State Auditor earle.

Will be at Broken Bow Chautauqua.
The York Hepublican in its
issue of April 10 , in commenting .
upon the fine program b ing prepared - !
pared for the coming Chautauqua
tn York has the following to say.
"Probably the greatest feature
this year will be the lecture by
Captain Richmond P. Hobson
late of the United States Navy ,
but now Congressman from
Alabama. Captain Hobson has
won for himself a place high up ,
very high in the hearts of the
American people.
We are glad to state that Capt.
Hobson has been secured for an
ddress during the co'ming
Broken Bow Chautauqua. He is I
one of the greatest orators on !
the American platfornl. As a
mem ber of Congress he will be
heard from as he has a mission
in life. A mission for the sake
which he retired from the
Navv. Evcr.ywhcre he goes he
is r eived with enthusiasm and
his address in Broken Bow will
be worth a journey across the
state to hear.
