Farm land in this county touched
another high mark in the deal recently
cousumated whereby Wm. Dawson came
into possession of the J. A. Hinshilwood
farm in Cedar valley. The price paid
$40 per acre is the highest yet paid
for land five miles from town and when
the fact that the farm is not what ia con
sidered swell improved one is taken into
account one readily gets a good idea of
the value of our farming land With
each year sinca the drouth seven years
ago the price of land has been steadily
advancing and the present good times
have given to it an impetus that will
continue to shove it still higher. Ne
braska promisee to push to the front in
near future as she never did before.
It seems to Thx JotrasAL that in
every community there might well be
sustained with profit to everybody a good
literary association meeting at least one
evening in the week, for mutual enter
tainment and benefit; In just such in
stitutions for the discussion of subjects
of current interest, many of the
statesmen of this country have
found their first practical train
ing for public life, and the first
strong incentives to the study of men
aad nations; of customs, laws aad his
tory. The eomiag years are to be more
than ever devoted-to sound, practical
affairs. We are living in a time which m
becomiag more aad more scientific. The
desire to quit conjecturing and take up
proofs; to throw guessing aside, and
begin to know, ia the longing of these
rimes. Public dicrnminn of public affairs
has been the one prominent feature of
civil liberty ia the United States.

Be sure to take and read a local
paper. There is scarcely an issue bus
you will find one or more items that will
amply repay you for all the expense.
You may be about to take a journey for
instance, but when you see, by the local
paper that a big bridge on the proposed
route is down, you defer your journey
and save time and expense. Or. a sale is
advertised, at which you may be able to
buy exactly what you want, and cheaper
than the usual market, and also help the
man who perhaps was compelled to sell,
get a better price through your bidding.
Or there may be many suggestions of
better ways of managing than you have
known; enlarged views of life that will
be of untold value to you. Your home
paper is presumed to be at work for your
best home interests.
