Government Commission Starts Work
On Redskin Problem.
Washington , Sept. 27. Declaring
that the Omaha Indian problem In Ne
braska has reached Its critical period ,
i when the action has to bo transferred
i from a dependent ward of the government -
[ mont to an independent citizen of the
state , olllclals of the bureau of Indian
affairs announced that stops would betaken
taken Immediately to place all the
competent Omahas in complete pos
session of their lands and money to
I which they are entitled. To place all
the non-competent Omahas In such a
condition , It Is declared , would leave
Nebraska with an Indian pauper prob
lem on Its hands and would simply
transfer the whole Indian problem
from the nation to the state.
A commission had. been approved
by Commissioner of Indian Affairs
Valentino to make an investigation
Into the questions Involved. This com
mission began its work today. This
action Is In conformity with the rec
ommendation of Secretary of the In
terior Ualllnger , approved by Presi
dent Taft recently.
Calling attention to the many difll-
cultles which will confront the com
mittee of the division growing out of
the bad practices against the Indians ,
the olllclals state that they believe
that the earnest co-operation of the
i local and state authorities will result
! in improving conditions. The working
| out of the problem In Nebraska will
very likely form a basis for the solu-
tion of similar problems In other

Total State Assessment This Year
Will Reach $320,087,358.
Pierre , S. D. , Sept. 25. The total
assessed valuation of all property in
the state for tills year , as shown by
the forthcoming report of the state
auditor , will bo $320,087,358 , , nn in
crease of n little over $36,000,000 over
the assessment of last year. Of this
increase , about $2,500,000 has been
placed against corporate property and
the balance against real estate and
personal property. The corporate
property valuation this year is over
$32,000,000 and that of farm lands
alone is $199,199.077. While the state
shows up well in the way of farm
property , the assessors could find but
$52,000 worth of watches , diamonds
and jewelry , or about a dollar In that
line for each resident of the state , and
while the banks show Individual de
posits of nearly $6,000,000 , the as
sessable amount of money is less than
$1,000,000. The matter of household
goods does not make any great show
ing , with only a little over a million
dollars In the whole state , while the
pianos come up to very near the mil
lion dollar mark , but , with the organs
added , the musical instruments in the
state just about equal the household
furniture in valuation. The banks are
assessed at $3,369,617 , while there Is
but about four thousand dollars of the
capital stock of Insurance companies
held In the state , If the llgures of the
assessor are to be considered as cor
rect. The horses of the state are
valued at about fifteen million dollars ,
while the cattle come In at a little
less , about twelve million dollars , with
sheep at a little less than a million ,
and swine at just a little over that

Driver and the Horses.
O'Neill , Neb. , Sept. 27. As a spec
ial stock train was passing here It
ran Into a team and wagon driven
by William McDermot , killing the
horses , demolishing the wagon and
rendering him unconscious. The
train was brought to a stop and the
young man taken to a hospital , but
at about 2 o'clock yesterday morning
he died without regaining conscious
The man was returning home from
the city , where ho had been deliver
ing baled hay , and going towards the
south it was hardly possible to see
the train approaching from the west
side. It Is supposed that be was on
the track before he saw the train.
The engine struck the wagon at the
iront wheels and threw It and the
horses about forty feet , and the man
about ten feet farther , lie was struck
on the head , where a great gash told
the tale of the awful blow. He was
a young man and unmarried and was
living with his parents one mile south
of where the fatal accident occurred.

training Is needed by Norfolk in the
punting. 1 Hero NcllRh made their star
plays. Norfolk was better trained in
carrying the ball , and once had It on
the half yard line , with only a foot
to go. Captain Weaver featured in
line ' bucking and other players , both

Blood Travels Fast.
The speed at which the blood circu
lates In the veins and arteries of n
healthy man Is something surprising.
All ( lay long , year In and year out ,
the round trips continue from the
heart to the uxtromltlvti and back
ajinln. The red blood corpuscles travel
like boats In a stream , going' to this
or that station for such servlcu an they
have to perform , and the white cor
puscles , the phagocytes , dart hither
and thither like patrol boats , ready to
arrest any contraband cargo of disease
germs. The mileage of the blood cir
culation reveals HO me astounding facts
in our personal history. Thus It ha.s
boon calculated that , assuming the
heart to boat sixty-nine times n min
ute at ordinary heart pressure , the
blood ROCS at the rale of 'Ml yards In
the minute , or seven nlilos per hour ,
UiS miles per day and ( i.IJ'JO miles per
year. If a man of eighty-four years
of ngc could have one single blood
corpuscle floating In his blood all his
life it would linvo traveled In that
same time 5.150.SOS miles. Uxclmnge.
