Lincoln county has 25,000 acres of
land under irrigation ; and when Keith
county finishes the work underprogress
she will irrigate 300,000 acres. While
crops are very light in the western

irrigated land raised good crops and are
in great luck. A number of the farm

It has been discovered by an Austrian
physician that people subject to rheum
atism can secure immunity from the
disease by being stung by bees. This
gives now hope to the unfortunates who
suffer from the painful twinges which
interfere with locomotion and other
wise render life miserable. But it will
require more or less courage to try the
new medicine. Compared with a bee
sting a rheumatic pain is a soothing
sensation. The really intense effects of
a bee sting , however , last only a short
time , while it is claimed that a sufficient
number of stings will counteract rheum
atism for six. months. That is where
the stings have the advantage. Owing
to a natural hesitancy about testing
this new medical discovery it will proba
bly not come into general use for some
time , yet it is likely that somewhere in
the future physicians willbe going about
with bee hives under their arms and
that the tiny but effective sting will
become an important surgical instru
ment. The lines , "How doth the little
busy bee improve the shining hour , '
will have a new significance when itbe =
comes the proper thing for the indus
trious insects to go about stinging
A WESTERN NIAGARA FALLS.
An Eastern Endorsement of the Project
ed Canal at Culbertson.
On. August 12th , 18911 , a contract
was consummated for the completion
of a canal for irrigation and water pow
er from a point near Palisade to the
city of Culbertson , Neb. , and thence
to the boundary line of Red Willow
eounty. The construction of this wat
erway will be made by C. J. Jones
( known as Buffalo Jones ) , of Garden
City , Kans. , a man who has built seven
hundred miles of irrigation ditches in
the last ten years. Mr. Jones agrees
to complete the canal , including a dam
for water power at Culbertson , by June
1st , 1891 , and has given his bond for
the faithful performance of this im
portant undertaking. The Frenchman
river at a point near Palisade , Neb. ,
will supply the water for this canal
which will he fifty miles in length. The
water will flow into the canal in great
abundance since it is estimated that
the volume of water in the Frenchman
river is 300 cubic feet per second and
its source is practically inexhaustible ,
for the river is supplied by subterran
ean basins which years of drought
could not diminish , and in the driest
season it has not been known to suffer
an appreciable loss in the volume of its
water. A dam will be constructed in
a canyon one-quarter of a mile from
Culbertson where there is a natural re
servoir for a lake. This will create one
of the most beautiful sheets of water
in the state and take a foremost place
in the estimation of tourists as a sum
mer resort. At the same time , its most
attractive feature and one which will
give it distinction throughout the west ,
will be a fall of sixty feet , spleudid in
volume and incalculable in power.
The water rushing from the base of the
fall will furnish power for a beet sugar
factory , electric light plant and manu
factories of all kinds which will naturally
seek this locality.
The city of Culbertson possesses abso
lute control of this power and will be
apportioned to whatever industrial and
manufacturing enterprises may desire
to take advantage of it. The prospect
has given new life to the commercial in
terests of the town , stimulated activity
in all directions , encouraged immigration
to this point and caused an appreciation
of real estate values. Culbertson is the
natural metropolis of that section of the
state. It stands at the junction of the
Republican and Frenchman rivers and
Black wood creek. It is situated on the
* main line of the B. & M. railroad from
Chicago to Denver , and is 250 miles
from Lincoln and 240- from Denver.
The railroad from Culbertson to Chey
enne , Wyo. , up Frenchman valley , is
now graded and the iron down for the
greater portion of the route , while the
Pueblo & Duluth Railroad company
has made a survey through Culbertson.
With this radiant outlook the citizens
of Culbertson have nothing to fear for
the solidity of their city's growth , and
capital from every section , especially
the east , will flow in her direction and
make her future secure. American
