The people who have boon talking of
the bonodtrt of irrigation know it would
bo a pplondid Improvement for the fitnto
nml country but somotiuioH lack the
facts in proof of their contention.
Down in Platte county , where the need
of irrigation is not of the greatoHt , they
-Imvo Hoonrod some practical roHults that
should emphasize the importance of the
movement. A plot of ID acroH of land
uoar Monroe under irrigation IH owned
by n GolumbuH man who routed it laRt
yonr for one third of the crop. Quo and
half ucro of the land could not be
reached by the irrigation pystom and
produced nothing to speak of. Ou the
balance was produced n crop of potatocH
valued nt $ lGOt ( ) the renter's share being
$1000 and the owner's ? r > 00. The tract
thus produced at the rate of $100 nn
ncro. Last yonr was nu exceptional
season and the price of potatoes has been
exceptionally highbut these exceptional
years are the ones that prove exception-
nlly bonolloial to the owner of nu irri
gated farm or tract of land , while in ordinary -
dinary seasons ho ia certain of a full
share of the gouoral prosperity. A crop
at $100 nn ucrj is worth more than the
Avonigo Iniid and would certainly pay u
largo part of the cost of irrigating.

The appointment of Judge J.B.Bamos
of this city to the position of supreme
.court commissioner , to fill the vacancy
caused by the resignation of Judge
Bedgwick , who assumes the supreme
jndgeship to which ho was elected last
fall , is n rocoguitiou of ability
aa a jurist that is very gratifying to the
people of Norfolk nud North Nebraska
where he is best known , and they will
sail uuito in oxtoudiug congratulations to
the appointee , nud to the court for the
wise discretion shown in their selection
As commissioner Judge Barnes' frioml
inow that by faithful service and able
decisions ho will prove to the people of
the state that the honors have not been
Judge Barnes acquired the title of
judge while serving in that capacity for
the old Sixth judicial district , from,1870
to 1884 , which during the first four years
.consisted of 16 counties and the unor-
ganized territory on the west , including
practically all the state north of the
IPlatte river. 'Previous to that he hnd
served the Sixth as district attorney for
Jonr years. He was appointed to the
position of judge by Governor Nanco ,
/under which tenure ho served ono year ,
nnd was then re-elected and served four
years more , at the end of which time he
voluntarily retired to continno the prac
tice of his profession. For the past 13
Drears he has been a resident of Norfolk ,
Tuoviug here from Poncn , where he had
.resided as many years before.
For years he has been counted ono of
the abltst practitioners in the northern
part of the state and has a professional
acquaintance extending throughout the
.length and breadth of Nebraska. His
practice has been chiefly among the
more important cases , where his ability
and services have boon in active demand ,
and there is probably no county in the
northern part of the state in which ho
baa not appeared in district court in the
capacity of export legal counsel.
itf He brings to the position of supreme
I court commissioner a comprehensive
legal knowledge , based upon extended
experience both as judge and practi
tioner , backed by a broad judicial mind
and every case submitted for his opinion
wfll receive the benefit of a legal acumen
that will deal fairly and justly with

Probably no stronger commendation
wiw ever given to a public ofllolal by the
Omaha Boo than was contained in an
ulitorlalin that paper this morning
ioucoriiiiiR the appointment of Judge
Uarues , which was OH follows :
The selection of Judge J. B , Barnou to
,111 the place on the supreme court commission -
mission made vacant by the promotion
if Judge Sodgwlolc to a position on the
tipreuio court bench will bo heartily
ratified by all who nro Interested in
maintaining the strength nnd high
Htnndard of the commission. Judge
Barnes was ono of the prominent candl-
iluteH favorably considered nt the time
, ho original membership of the commls-
lion was agreed upon , nnd WOH again n
loading candidate for the noimnntlou
for supreme judge before the republican
tate convention which wont to Judge
Sodgwiok. His attainments n n lawyer
mvo boon amply attested by long pnxc
( lee at the bar and his judicial qualillca
dons demonstrated by service upon the
district bench. It can bo said , therefore ,
without fear of disappointment that this
addition to the working foroo of the
court may bo rolled on to maintain Its
oillolonoy ns well as to inspire popular
ocntldonco in its ability to moot nil de
mands made upon it.
TRICKS OF THE TRADE.

"What becomes of all the old flhav
Ing iniiKH ? " WIIH the question asked the
"What becomes of the owners ? " wns
Neither side spcnu-d disposed to an
swer the query , and there was an awk
ward sllonei' . The barber slapped hla
razor on tlio strop , smeared some oxtrn
lather on the victim's mouth BO he
wouldn't be Inclined to Interrupt am
said In n stage whisper :
"Now , I'll tell you , but I don't wan

use the mugs again. "
lie paused and sighed as he tosset
the questioner's head the other way.
"You , " he continued , "we use them
again.Vo don't llku to lose custom
ers ; but. If wo must lose thorn , why , wo
don't mind If they leave their cups ,
etc. , behind. It's surprising how many
do ; but , then , barbers do mostly n
'shifting trade. ' It's no secret that wo
urge customers to have their own cup ,
Most of them are satlslled If they have
ii nrtviitn IMID. brush and snoncc. We
supply them with the man's name on
the cup for $ ! . & ( ) , and our prollt on the
transaction Is RO cents. When a man
lias a razor nnd comb and brush be
sides the other tools , ho generally takes
the whole lot away when he's leaving ,
but countless cups , brushes and
sponges are left behind In every barber
"Tho cups are always good. Many of
them contain such common names as
John Smith , William Jones , etc. , and
when some other John Smith or Wil
liam Jones orders n cup wo simply sup
ply him with the cast olt ono. Some
times they need a HUllo touching up
with gliding ; but , on the whole , It's
"The brushes and sponges ? Oh , wo
use them on the transients. " Now
Ducks nnd gecso need no grain when
they have plenty of grass.
Chicken fatten faster ou cooked food
than ou raw because It Is more easily
When soft feed la given to either
young or old fowls. It should never be
thrown on the ground.
When closely confined , the loose grain
fed to fowls should bo scattered among
litter of some kind , so that they can
scratch It out.
There Is nothing so bad for the health
and well being of poultry ns confining
them In close quarters and preventing
them from taking needed exercise.
Ono of the most Important Items to
Insure success In the hatching of chick
ens In winter Is to got tlio eggs from a
flock of healthy nnd vigorous Jowls.
There Is better health among roving
fowls because they got the food that la
best for digestion and get the necessary
grit to help the gizzard do its work ; '
When necessary to administer modi-

ter , keep the birds from drink for sev
eral hours. They are then thirsty and
more apt to got a good swallow *

Honors at the Board.
Don Molncu , Jan. 10. Governor Les
lie M. Shaw Atns given a public recep
tion Inrit night by the Grant club In
onor of his elevation to the flocro-
arynhlp of the United States troUa-
ry. The reception was held nt the
lavcry house and wns followed by n
anquot , nt which covers wore laid
or 350 Bucstfl , which Included nearly
.11 the loading Republicans In the
tate and city. Governor-elect A. B.
Cummins presided and delivered a
rlef but eloquent address In honor of
Is distinguished predecessor. Sena-
orn Allison and Dolllver were unable
0 bo present.

Governor Shaw's Response.
Governor Shaw expressed profound
gratitude for the many kind and gnv
lotifl things said of and to him anil
for the kindness beyond measure of
the people of Iowa.
As to his now position in the cabInet -
Inot , he said , In part : "I think I need
not sny that the responsibilities which
1 am about to assume came unsought
nnd unexpected. I had planned and
hoped to return to my home and to
pursuits to mo far more congenial
than public aorrlco. When In obedience
to the summons received through the
courtesy of Senator Allison I loft for
Dubuque on the evening of Dec. 23 , It
wns with the fixed understanding with
Mrs. Shaw that I would decline. The
sequel Is but nu Illustration of how
little wo know of what we will do in
n given" emergency. When a father
tolls his son to stand In the gap while
ho drives the herd past , filial loyalty
demands obodlcnco without "question1
Ing the wisdom of the order and when
the president of the United States
nmliOB n similar request there should
be no alternative.
"Concerning policy , I have nothing
to say. Concerning the duties of the
treasury department , I might say
much. At this time 1 shall content
myself , however , and content you , by
saying little. Theoretically , I am told ,
there is little for the secretary of the
treasury to do. The work Is so systemized -
temized as to bo mostly performed by
subordinates. Unfortunately , how
ever , almost anything Is liable to come
before him for ultlmnto determina
tion , nnd In practice he has many and
as diversified questions to decide as
the average man cares to consider.
In other words the treasury depart
ment Is the 'bloody angle of an ad
ministration. ' All I can crave Is the
same indulgence from the people
whom I love as has been shown mo In
the past. "
TO MAINTAIN THE PARITY.
Increase of Subsidiary Silver Approved
by House Committee.
Washington , Jan. 10. The first
financial measure of Importance to be
reported to the house Is that agreed
upon by the commlttoo on coinage ,
weights and measures , providing for
the maintenance of itho legal tender
silver dollar at a parity with gold and
for an Increase of the subsidiary sil
ver coinage. The measure was intro
duced by Representative Hill ( Conni ) .
It was considered list year In con
gress and attracted widespread atten
tion among bankers and financial au
thorities. . t
'Mr. Hill'urged ' Immediate action in
order that the bill might be brought
before the house at an early day. Tola
was opposed by the Democratic members -
bers , who wore against the bill on Us
merits and protested against what
they alleged to bo undue haste. Mr.
Sbnfroth of Colorado sought to have
the vote deferred ono week In order
that Alexander Delmar , a writer bn
economic subjects , might bo beard.
This was voted down , aa vrero all oth
er motions to defer action , and the
committee , by a party vote , ordered
the bill reported. It authorizes the
coinage of subsidiary silver coin
without regard to limit and aa public
necessity may requlro.
The roost Important feature of the
bill for the parjty of gold and illvor
dollars is aa follows : " -The/secretary
nf thp trpflfmi-r IK tinrnhv illr ntail tn
maintain at all times at a parity , with
gold the legal tender silver dollars re
maining outstanding and to that end
ho Is hereby directed to exchange gold
for legal tender silver dollars .when
presented to the treasury in the sum
of | 5 or any multiple thereof. "

In , going direct to the drift where the
bodies of the workmen were covered.
The blacksmith shop west of the open
ing went down last night and from
present indications the dry house west
of the opening will go down. It la
now problematical when the bodies
of the burled miners will bo recovered ,
as wun water pouring in nnu the sur
