C. , June 27. 1900. Registers and Receivers , Unit ed States Land Offices. Gentlemen : Your attention is called to the provisions of sections 2 and 3 ol the act of congress , entitled "An act for the relief of the Colorado Cooperative Colony ; to permit second homesteads in certain cases , and for other purposes , approved June 5 , 1900 ( Puhlic No. 148) ) , a copy of which sections is hereto at tached. Section 2 provides that any person who has theretofore made a homestead entry and commuted same under section 2301 , Revised Statutes , and the amend T ments thereto , shall be entitled to the benefits of the homestead laws as though such former entry had not been made , but commutation under section 2301 , Revised Statutes , shall not be allowed of an entry made under this section. Section 3 provides that any person who , prior to the passage of this act , has made a homestead entry , but from any cause has lost or forfeited the same , shall be entitled to the benefits of the homestead law as though such former entry had not been made. Therefore , you will not hereafter reject a homestead application on the ground that the ap plicant can not take the prescribed oath that he has not previously made such an entry , or because he has perfected title under section 2301 , Revised Statutes , to land entered under the homestead law ; but he will be required to show by affi davit designating the entry formerly made by description of the land , number and date of entry , or other sufficient data , to enable me to identify the same on the records of this office , and that it was forfeited or commuted , as the case may be , prior to the passage of the act. In any case where the former entry was made subsequent to the date of the act , the rule given on page 19 , circular of July ir , 1899 , remains unchanged. It will be observed that an entry made under section 2 can not be perfected 03 * commutation under section 2301 , Re vised Statutes. The fact that applicants have purchased , under the provisions of the act of March 2 , 1889 (25 Stat. , 871) ) , lands patented to the Flathead Indians in Montana shall not be held to have impaired or exhausted their homestead rights by or on account of any such pur chase. Very respectfully , BINGER HERMANN , Commissioner. Approved , June 27 , 1900. E. A. HITCHCOCK , Secretary. Died in New York. A private word from George Hanlein of Bar Harbor , Washington , announces the sudden death of his brother John te Haulein in New York city. The de ceased visited the Hanleins on the farm ueai this city in 1892 , and at that time became acquainted with quite a number > of our readers , who will be pained to learn of his early taking off. He was 38 years old , unmarried , a steam-fitter by trade , and since 1886 has lived in New York city. Too Much Sugar. The report circulated in the daily press , recently , that the Nebraska Bri gade band of McCook is a candidate for the position of regimental band of the First Nebraska , is emphatically denied by officers of the band. There is lots of honor in the position , of course , but too much sugar for a penny ; men like the Nebraska Brigade band is composed of cannot afford the luxury of leaving their businesses and official positions for the munfiicent per diem of $ r.oo. Base-Ball Tournament. Oxford has arranged to hold a base ball tournament , August 8th , 9th , loth and nth. Prizes aggregating $300 are offered , $150 to the team winning first money ; $100 to the second ; $50 to "the third.

To Those Persons Interested in the Pres ervation of Game Birds in Nebraska : The state law provides that prairie chickens and grouse may be legally killed only during the months of Sep tember , October , November and De cember ; quail during the months of November and December ; geese and all kinds of wild ducks from the first day of September to the thirtieth day of April inclusive. None of the above mentioned game birds may be ensnared , trapped , or netted at any time. Any person or persons violating the provisions of the law is deemed guilty of a misdemeanor , and on conviction subject to a fine of five dollars for each bird so killed. The law further prohibits the sale , ex posure for sale , or having in possession during the closed season any of the aforementioned game birds , by any cor poration , company , association , person , or persons , and provides a penalty of five dollars for each bird so sold , exposed for sale , or had in possession , possession being prima facie evidence of guilt. For years the provisions of the game and fish laws have been persistently and wantonly violated in many sections of the state. The illegal slaughter of Drairie chickens and grouse , scarcely old enough to fly , has already begun ; market hunters , and others calling them selves sportsmen , in open violation of the law and disregard of the rights of those who respect and obey the law , are seeking profit and diversion by slaught ering with guns birds so young and small that they might be successfully hunted with a buggy whip. The Nebraska Fish and Game Pro- ective association was formed for the mrpose of assisting in securing the en forcement of the game and fish laws of this state , by setting the example of strict compliance on the part of its members with the provisions of the law , and to aid in the detection and convic tion of those who violate it. In futher- ance of the latter purpose this associa tion will pay a reward of twenty-five dollars for the detection and conviction of any one for killing prairie chickens , grouse , or quail during the closed season on those birds , such reward to be paid to the person or persons supplying the evidence and making the complaint up on which the conviction is secured , the reward to be paid at the office of the secretary of this association in the city of Lincoln , Nebraska. This association futhermore proposes to use every legitimate means at its command to secure evidence against , and prosecute to the extreme limit of the law , any or all persons who engage in the illegal killing , sale , or use of the game birds of the state.

"The Right Place" to call up is No. 12. You are sure of getting just as choice meats by phone as by personal inspec tion. You know it ! Everist , Marsh & Co. are at the head of the procession when good meats are on parade. Try their market. W. R. Starr is excusably elevated over the fact that one of his apple trees has this season produced a number of fine , well-matured apples. The tree has not been sprayed. Howe Smith lays claim to being some thing of a "scorcher" himself : Last * Saturday , in the teeth of a pretty stiff breeze , he rode his bike home from out beyond Atwood , Kansas , a distance of 55 miles. Minden defeated Arapahoe , Thursday , on the Arapahoe grounds to the tune of 9 to 2. Arapahoe is on the tobog gan sure. McCook was well represent ed at the game. It is not a debatable question but one of privilege to patronize Everist , Marsh & Co. , when in quest of the best the market affords in the meat line. They are prompt and accommodating in the bargain. Phone 12. During the storm of last Friday night , LS. . Watson's cow was stunned by a stroke of lightning and lost the sight of Dne eye. Mrs. Ella Irwin's cow was also stunned. Lightning struck the wire fence of the pasture in which the animals were confined , shattering a number of posts. In another column will be fouud an of fer of $25 reward for detection and con- iriction of any one killing prairie chick ens , grouse , or quail during the closed season on those birds. Fred Montmor- ency of McCook is xice-president of the association , and complaint may be filed with him. It is a most difficult task to raise fruit in this section , but it is not comparable with the difficulty people seem to have to preserve the fruit they raise from the depredations of the boys , judging from the numerous complaints filed at this affice. It is a burning shame that re spectable children should engage in this miserable pilfering business. The intentional opening of mail ad- Jressed to another is a misdemeanor , with heavy penalty attached. Persons getting mail belonging to others should be certain they are "MISTAKEN" before jpeuing the same. Carelessness in this respect is no excuse. The habit some people have of opening all mail given hem by mistake is liable to be product- ve of trouble. Preserving Jellies and Fruits.
