The following weather and crop re-
pott Issued by Forecaster Loveland ,
has been received for ( he week :
Low temperatures continued dur
ing the week , averaging from 7 de
grees to 10 degrees below the normal
throughout I bo stato.
The rainfall for the week was the
heaviest for the year , and ranged
from about 0.2. of an Inch in the
northwest part of the stato' to over
1.00 Indies in some southeastern
counties. In the southwestern sec
tion , whore dry conditions have prevailed -
vailed for many weeks , the rainfall

The fine rains of the week will
prove of much benefit to winter and

southwestern counties. In the south

spring wheat are beginning ( o grow.

POSSIBILITIES OF KINKAID LAW
People are Attracted by the Offerings
that Will be Available for Farming -
ing and Ranching Purposes.
Many people are being favorably
attracted by the possibilities of se
curing a section farm through the op
erations of the Klnkald homestead
law , and it Is probable ( hat a num
ber of Norfolk people will try for
such a possession , having figured it
out that while they could not afford
to take a quarter section as contem
plated under the old law , and of the
property affected , they will llnd It
profitable to try for a section under
the Kinkaid revision.
It is said that , under the now law
there are splendid possibilities for
prospective settlers. Much of the
land Is good for farm and meadow
use , while that which cannot bo em
ployed in this manner will make splen
did range for horses and cattle. On
a quarter there may not be sufficient
farm and meadow land or range to
make it profitable to the homestead
er , but by combining four quarters
the bomeseekcr may choose and use
the best for tbe farm and the meadow
and fence the balance and convert it
Into pasture , making a good and pay
ing property of land that in quarter
sections would fall to attract the
liomestoador. Where there Is a fam
ily of several adult children , all hav
ing homestead rights , there Is a pos
sibility of getting the land In such a
body as to make a very valuable (
ranch under the control of one family :
All of it is good for grazing purposes ,
but the cattle that a quarter section
would maintain would not prove a
profitable Income , and the now law
will very decidedly make a change
that will hold attractive possibilities.
The same conditions that will appeal
to n family will make it possible for
the organization of companies , each
to take a section adjoining and turn
the whole Into a ranch that would be
