It seems we are having imposed upon
us a something in the nature df a saloon
which is owned and operated just across
the line in Red Willow county. The
party who is running it probably thinks
the fact that he is in another county will
prevent the people of the town from do
ing anything to interfere with his busi
ness. But the supreme court has recent
ly decided that question in the negative.
He is just as much exposed there as if in
Furnas county.—Cambridge Kaleido
It is not often you find a railroad-agent
able to perform the duties of a minister
of the gospel, but Mr. E. L. Brown, who
has filled that position so acceptably to
the B. & M. railroad for several years, is
an exception. He preached at the M.E.
church on last Sunday evening, and al
though it was his first sermon in about
five years, yet he delivered a very able
discourse, which was listened to by a
large and appreciative audience. Mr.
Brown is a Dunkard and may at no dis
tant day quit railroading and enter the
ministry. He will occupy the pulpit at
the M. E. church again on next Sunday

The railway interest is the largest int
erest, from a business point of view, in
the world. One-tenth of the labor em
ployed in America is on the pay rolls of
the railway companies and another tenth
on the pay rolls of the manufacturers
and producers of articles used only or
chiefly by railways. So that one-fifth of
the population of the American conti
nent is sustained and maintained by an
interest not yet sixty years old. Pile in
one heap all of the railway stocks and
bonds and in another all of the money
in the country and the money would not
buy the other heap. The gross receipts
of American railways in a year amount
to $10,000,000,000 and their gross earn
ings are 10 per cent of that amount. The
amount paid to labor is $750,000,000.
The public meeting called for the pur
pose of discussing and considering the
subject of irrigation, was organized by
electing H. H. Berry, chairman, and J.
S. LeHew, secretary.
Judge H. H. Benson, of Haigler, was
present and addressed the meeting on
the subject of irrigation, and the need of
increased acreage of land under water.
J. S. LeHew spoke on the subject of ap
plied irrigation, and intensive farming.
It was decided to hold a two days con
vention in this city on the 2d and 3d of
May, for the purpose of organizing a
district association. A committe was
selected with power to make all neces
sary arrangements, viz: J. S. LeHew, C.
J. Ryan, H. H. Benson, A. F. Moore
and H. H. Berry.
After the adjournment of the meeting,
the committee organized, by electing C.
J. Ryan, chairman, J. S. LeHew, secre
tary and A. F. Moore, treasurer.
It is the object of the convention to
educate the agriculturist as to how to ir
rigate the land, and the advantages of
intensive farming, and to see what can
be done in the way of locating lakes and
storm basins in which to gather and pre
serve storm water for irrigation. There
will be experienced men present, to give
lessons in applied irrigation, and civil
engineers and other scientific persons
who will make the convention not only
interesting, but profitable.
J. S. LeHew, H. H. Berry,
The following from an eastern ex
change is eminently correct: “It is an
admitted fact that during the recent flur
ry in financial affairs no agency did more
potent work to maintain confidence
among the people in the money institu
tions than the country newspapers.
They all swore by their towns and their
banks, boosted them up as the safest in
in the land, managed by able financiers
and equal to any emergency. In some
towns we know of, had the local papers
just dropped a hint of one line that
things were not exactly safe there would
have been such runs on the banks that
would have “busted them into smither
eens.” It’s the local paper that keeps
down excitement in perilous times,
throws oil on the troubled waters, and
makes all men better by its being pub
lished in the commuity. It deserves
all the support good citizens can give it.' ’
The county commissioners were
called in special session by County Clerk
Roper, yesterday, for the purpose of ap
pointing a successor to A. H. Barnes,
county treasurer, deceased. Naturally
large interest attaches to this appoint
ment, and the politicians and monied
interests of the county have been ener
getic and eager in the behalf of their
favorites. No choice was arrived at yes
terday, but it is expected that the ap
pointment will be made today, and this
exciting incident closed. The appointee’s
term will last until coming January.
Large delegations from here, and many
in fact from all over the county have
been in attendance upon the meetings.
The treatment of grain seeds with hot
water for the prevention of smuts has
shown itself efficacious,not in this manner
only, but also in the more perfect germi
nation of the seed so treated. This is a
result wholly reasonable, and which
might have been predicted. A large
portion of the seed placed in the ground
ordinarily fails to germinate, although
the seed may be good, but if there is not
sufficient moisture the germ often shriv
els and dies before it can penetrate the
epidermis. By the hot water treatment
the.shell or husk is softened, and the
plants start into growth more quickly
and with much greater uniformity than
they otherwise would.
The Easter edition of the McCook
Tribune presented a handsome appear

mell is keeping fully abreast of the
times and his journal is second to none,

of news.—Indianola Courier.
