HEAD OF STATE ASSOCIATION.
MADISON COUNTY IS HONORED
Dr. Long Has Been a Practitioner in
This County for Nearly a Quarter
of a Century and Stands High In His
The board of councillors of the No-
hruskn State Medical association bold
a speclnl meeting In Lincoln Tuesday
afternoon at the olllco of the secretary ,
Dr. A. D. Wilkinson. The principal
business for which the mooting wns
called was that of determining upon
a successor to President Dr. J. L.
Greene , who recently removed from
Dr. P. A. Long of Madison was se
lected by the board. The board also
recommended unanimously that during
the absence of Dr. Wilkinson from the
stnte this winter the Incoming presi
dent should appoint Dr. II. WInnetl
Orr to be acting secretnry.
Those present nt the meeting wore :
Dr. Wilkinson of Lincoln , Dr. J. P.
Ixird of Omnha , Dr. A. B. Anderson of
Pawnee , Dr. L. W. Shaw of Osccola ,
Dr. W. R. Young of Ansley , Dr. P. H.
Salter of Norfolk.
This Is the first time in the history
of the state medical organization that
the presidency has been held In this
part of the stnte. In fact only three
or four physicians in the north Pintle
country nnd outside of Omaha have
had the honor of presiding over the
state medical association.
Dr. F. A. I-iong wns born In North
ampton county , Pa. , In 1859 , came west
in early manhood , graduated from Iho
medical department of the Iowa State
university in 1SS2 and soon after lo
cated In Mndlson and has practiced
there continuously ever since.
Dr. Uing is essentially a self mndoj
nan , having worked his way through
ollego , nnd struggled through ninny
Hardships as a young physician , In his
efforts to gain a foothold , twenty and
more > ears ago. By persistent and
strict attention to business he has ac
quired n medical nnd surgical prac
tice snob ns It fnlls to the lot of few
"country doctors" to enjoy.
Dr. Long wns one of the organizers
of the Elk-horn Valley Medical society
nnd bns for some years been its sec
retary. Ho has also been native in
state medical society matters for the
past fifteen years , and this activity
won him the present honor , which ,
however , came to him wholly unsought
Dr. P. H. Sailor , councillor for this
district , wns present nt the meeting

IIo had gone a mile in Norfolk In 2:20 :
Hat , which wns the best record ever
made In the world by n drlvcrless
trotter up to thai time.
Surcna Is said to be the only guide-
loss trotlor lu the United States to

dentally. Soon after the Albion horse

one of his horses was being displayed
In an effort to sell him ns n guldeless
peformer. Kennedy saw the display.
"If my horse can't beat that , I'll
kill him , " said Kennedy.
And forthwilh Surcna was tried out
as n guidelcss wonder. He made good
the first time In 2:30. : Then he wns
brought to Norfolk and Nellgh nnd
Battle Creek. He does this trick twice
n week , nnd races in the meanwhile.

RENT PAYS FOR LAND.
Fertile Sections of the Southwest ,
Where Land Sells for $15 and
Rents for $5 Per Aero.
One of the remarkable things about
eastern Arkansas nnd northern Louis
iana Is the fact that cleared land rents
for $5 per acre cash , and can be bought
for $7.50 to $1G per acre. It costs
from $ G to $10 an acre to clear It.
Other Improvements necessary are
slight and inexpensive.
The soil is rich alluvial , or made. It
produces a bale of cotton per acre ,
worth $45 to $ CO. This accounts for
Its high rental value. Other crops ,
such ns corn , small grains , grasses ,
vegetables and fruits thrive ns well.
Alfalfa yields 4 to C cuttings , a ton
to a cutting , and brings $10 to $1G per
In other sections of these states ,
and In Texas as well , the rolling or
hill-land is especially adapted to stock
raising and fruit fanning. Land Is
very cheap , $5 to $10 per aero ; Im
proved farms $10 $15 to $25 per acre.
The new White river country offers
many opportunities for settlers. High ,
rolling , fine water It Is naturally
adapted to stock nnd fruit raising.
Can be bought as low as $3 per acre.
