The Omaha World-Herald: Hear
gjr9.—As to the Encyclopedia Britan
nica, I regard it as a monumental work,
one of the finest achievements in the
world of letters which the world has
ever seen. It is at the head of books
of reference. It is an indispensable
work. Its use is constant. Though
bound in the most substantial form,
its price is phenomenally cheap.
Respectfully Yours,
Geo. L. Miller.
The burning question with house
wives of all lands, all creeds, and all
ages is: “Which is the best Cooking
Stove?” S. M. Cochran & Co. answer
this question today by proclaiming the
“Charter Oak Stoves” to be the
best in every conceivable shape.

Tall oaks from little acorns
grow. A man who wanted to bor
row some money of the Nebraska
Savings bank, it is rumored, was
refused the loan. To get even for
his disappointment he went to a
school ma’am of his acquaintance
and told her that the bank was
about to fail, that it couldn’t loan
ten cents to save its soul, and that
if she wanted to protect her inno
cent school children who were de
positors,she should tell ’em to with
draw their deposits at once. The
school ma’am became greatly ex
cited over the disclosure and the
next day public announced in her
school room that the scholars who
were depositors in the bank must
get their money out right away or
they would lose it. Then came the
run, a little one at first, but spread
ing and gathering strength until O
street was hardly wide enough to
hold the clamoring depositors. The
man who couldn’t borrow at that
bank was avenged.—Journal.
Irrigation has reclaimed 3,631,
381 acres of arid land at a cost of
$26,611,000 and given it a value of
$84,611,000. There are estimated
to be 542,000,000 acres of arid and
worthless land in the country cap
able of reclamation by irrigation.
The value of irrigated land ranges
from $31 in Wyoming to $150
per acre in California. The au
nual value of the irrigated product
varies from $8.25 in Wyoming to
$19 in California. The average
first cost of bringing water to the
arid land is $8.25, and the subse
quent cost is $1.07 a year, the
water right thus created being
valued at $26 per acre. As less
than one per cent of the reclaima
ble land has thus far received wa
ter, it is apparent that irrigation
in this country has a large future.
Taylor’s Evening Performance.
Saturday was, surely Taylor’s day in
(Jreston. In the evening the tents of
Creston’sShowman was crowded to their
utmost capacity, as they were in the af
ternoon, and before half those who ap
peared at the ticket wagon had been
supplied the sale of tickets had to be
discontinued so great was the jam inside
the tents. The people took the situation
good naturedly, however, and after every
seat had become occupied hay was spread
npon the ground around the ring, and
men, women and children sat down on
it and ‘‘let their feet hang down,” with
out a murn.U '.
The performance was excellent and
gave perfect satisfaction to everyone.
The riding, tumbling, jumping, trapeze
performance, juggling, bare-back riding
as well as all other features of the show,
were excellent and never was surpassed
here before.
Mr. Taylor has surelygot a show which
will take with the people.—(Jreston Ga
