Much Interest is Being Manifested
The possibilities of scientific drain
age are not largely- appreciated as
yet in Richardson county. In spite
of what is being done along this line
it remains a fact that even the most
hopeful supporters of this work have
an inadequate conception of the
actual results possible when once
the latest and most approved drain
a:;i methods are applied.
1'or this reason, the experiment
now being worked out on the Reav
is farm to the southwest of town is
of peculiar interest and special im
portance. The work is being done
under the direction and supervision
of the university experiment station,
and should consequently embrace
the latest ideas in correct and up-to
The results will he studied with
interest, boeiiuse large Issue* are
at stake. It' this experinint proves
a success, and it is bound to, other
holders ot' low, wet land will feel
ncouraged to go to the necessary
expense for tiling their holding's.
The results in time will be the re
damation of some of the finest and
most productive land in the state.
The cast lias long since solved
the drainage problem both legisla
tively and practically As a conse
quence large sections of Ohio, Indi
ana, Illinois and other states, once
worse than useless are today the
finest farm lands of those states.
This land is all systematically un
derdrained. The tile drains serving
the double purpose of carrying off
tiie surplus water, quickly and with
out harm to the land, and of conserv
ing the moisture and returning it to
the soil in case of drought.
One of the wonders of our day is
the reclamation of these low lands.
It is really no longer an experiment,
but lather a matter of correct engi
neering. (There is probably not an
acre of really waste land in the
bottoms of Richardson county that
cannot be reclaimed and made til
able if the right methods are em
ployed. Ii is not a question of pos
sibility at all. but only one of going
about it in the right way. This, of
course involves heavy expenditure
to make the needed improvements,
but the increased productivity and
consequent increased valuation will
amply justify the outlay.
IJiiderdrainage to b * successful
must have an outlet. The success
of all tiling, therefore, is conting
ent upon the opening up of tiie Ne
maha channel itself. Water will not
freely flow up hill. It must have
fall. This, tiie new channel will!
provide, when the big ditch is once
Letter From our Regular Correspond
ent at Kansas City.
Kansas City, March 22, 3 910.
The combination of a larger demand
for cattle, and a reduced supply last
week, gave the market a good push
upward, and closing prices were
35 to CO cents higher on steers
r'or the week, and 20 to 35 cents
higher on butcher grades and stock
era and feed* r.s. The market is
$1.50 higher than first ot' February
and $1.00 higher than a year ago
Today the run is 12,000 head, and
the market is steady to 10 lower.
Some of the Islmiael heifers were
heir today from Kiowa, Kansas, at
$7.10, and some steers in the sane
shipment sold at thetop, $8.15. And
steers sell at $7.1 o to $7.85, nothing
below $6.50 that Ims any finish at
all, and hardly any self s as low hs
$6.00. Fancy cows sell up to $7.00,
bulk of cows mil heifers at $4.50 to
Homs made a net gain of .16 coins
last week, closing the week :u
utioiii the best point reached, aftei
some reverses Wednesday and Thurs
day. The slim supply of 40,000 hen
arrived last week, and the run to
day is 8,000 lead. While the gen
era! sentiment is bullish, prices have
reached a point where hear maneuv
ers sometimes win, as they did to
day, prices 10 lower, top $10.65,
bulk $10.60. Great Interest is taken
in the new pig crop now being far
rowed, and it is conceded that extra
ordinary care will be given the new
crop, and a larger percentage sav
ed than usual, because it is more
worth saving than heretofore.

Plenty of Birds.
If we allow six inches, the measure
of Hie Knglish sparrow of our streets,
to be the average length of a migra
tory bird, then, this mighty host, if
we could arrange its restless, flitting
members in a quiet, orderly manner,
like soldiers on parade, would make a
line 4,090,909 miles long. This earth
is much too small for such a line. We
migl l arrange our birds in 326 lines
an i each would extend from the
m Ah pole to the south pole along the
whole length of North and South
America, if we arranged the birds at
the equator they would encircle the
globe 163 times —I). Lange, in the At
