The progress ia agriculture in the arid
states aad territories during the decade
ding with 1899 ia shown in the report
just published, by the division of agri
culture of the twelfth census. As una
progress is attributable largely to irriga
tion, the statistics relating thereto are
of general interest.
The number of irrigators in the United
States in 1899, not including irrigators of
rice, was 106218, an increase in ten years
of 99.9 per cent The area irrigated was
7,599,545 acres, an increase of 107.6 per
cent. Of this area, 5,944,412 acres were
in crops, and 1,595,133 acres in pasture
aad uamaturad crops. The cost of irri
gation systsma in operation, exclusive of
those on rice plantations, was $67,770,
942, while the value of the irrigated crops
was $8580,491.
The total length of all the main ditches
ia the arid and aemi-arid states and ter
ritories was 44449 miles.
The average number of irrigated acres
in farms in arid states and territories
wss 71; the average value of irrigated
land per acre, $4253; the average value
of crops produced on irrigated land,
$14.81; the average first cost of water,
$7.80; the average annual cost of main
tenance, $038. Of the 5,711,965 acres in
crops, hay and forage occupied 3,665,664,
or 6L2 per cent; cereals, 1,399,709, or 245
per cent; vegetables, 168,432, or 2J9 per
cent; orchard fruits, 251,289, or 4.4 per
cent; othercrops,22681,or4.0peroent
The value of the hay and forage was
$3434986; cereals, $143826; vege
tables, $9,627,491; orchard fruits, $8,920,
409; other crops, including sub-tropical
fruits, grapes, flowers, plants, sugar
beets, eta, $16,712246.
In Nebraska the number of irrigators
increased from 214 in 1889 to 1,932 in
1899, or 80&3 per cent, and the number
of acres irrigated from 11,744 to 148598,
or 1,1618 per cent. The ditches in oper
ation in 1899 had a length of 1,701 miles,
cost. $1,270978, and irrigated 147,696
acres. There were 843 acres irrigated
from wells. The irrigated area in crops
was 129,726 acres, yielding products
valued at $982,615. The area irrigated
in pasture and immatured crops was
1812 acres.
Shortly after saadiag the irrigation
bill to the president, oongress passed a
resolution authorizing the director of the
census to compile statistics relating to
irrigation for the crop year of 1902.
With the data now assembled, this work
will be comparatively simple, most of it
being done by correspondence. To
secure this information inquiries will
soon beaentont to irrigators throughout
the United States. The co-operation of
those interested in irrigation is earnestly
solicited, for upon their prompt response
will depend very largely the value of
these statistics. This is in part a sup
plementary work, the results of which
will be utilized in the work soon to be
undertaken by the Department of the
Interior under the provisions of the
irrigation bill.
The management of the Fremont ball
team announced last week thst they will

The militia companies of the state

Homer, son of Dr. D. T. Martyn of
this city, who had been driving n team
hitched to a mower on the ranch of Dr.
Hansen fifteen miles from O'Neill, waa
thrown Tuesdsy last from the mower,
the horses stopping suddenly to ehsss
flies. He fell in front of the sickle which
cut through the heel cords aad deep into
the bones of the right foot inflicting n
severe wound. The horses started on n
walk and unable to stop them, Homer
held his right foot up and hopped on his
left between the sickle and horses, until
he found he was becoming faint. He
then threw himself over the sickle away
from the horses, and bravely did the best
he could to bandage the cut with hie
handkerchief, to stop the flow of blood,
nnd crawled quite a distance to Ed.
Coolidge who was also working in the
field. He was at once taken to O'Neill
where Drs. Flynn nnd Gilligan attended
him and telephoned to his father here.
An engine nnd baggage car were sent up,
Drs. Evans, Hansen and D. T. Martyn,
jr., made the trip to return with Homer,
the special arriving here Wednesday
morning about 9 o'clock. The injured
member is doing as wall as possible, but
the cnt is very deep and may yet cause
much serious trouble, but the many
friends of the young man hope he may
get along so that amputation of the foot
will not be necessary.
As some of our older subscribers
who have been reading Taa Joubxak n
good many years have written asking
sbout the earthquake shock felt in this
vicinity n number of years ago, and
wanting to know the date, we herewith
reproduce a portion of an article given
in our columns st that time: "On Thurs
day, November 15, 1877, at 1135 two dis
tinct waves of earthquake, with numer
ous tremors, were felt here, lasting,
according to our estimate, about thirty
seconds. The motion, some affirm was
from the southeast to the northwest;
others who noticed the vibrations of
hanging articles, aay it waa north and
south. The two-story brick bosses in
the city were more preceptibly affected
than others. At the brick school bouse
in district number one the walla were
cracked from the foundation up in two
plsees, and the school children so thor
oughly frightened that they rushed out
of the building and oould not be per
suaded to reenter it. School was dis
missed for the day. A. W. Critea, esq.,
whose omoe ia in the second story of the
bank building, aaya that ha doesn't wish
to be invited out to another such matinee.
He could hear the grinding of the mortar,
and Charles Wake who was in the same
building, declares he oould see the walls
move. Similar sensations were expe
rienced at the court house, and the wall
was crackea in one place. Some fear is
expressed that the school bouse will not
be safe for occupancy in a storm of wind;
the damage to the court house is so
slight as not to create any npprohonsion.
No other buildings in the city were per
ceptibly injured, though some of the
frame ones creaked and awayed consid
erably. There ia no telling what would
have been the result if the shocks had
been continued aa other time or two.
As it was, most of our people bad a slight
experience of an earthquake without the
disastrous ooasequenoea which often
attend them.'' The school building men
tioned above ia still doing duty in the
First ward.

I wish to express my sincere thanks to
the many frienda and neighbors who no

and burial of my husband and later of
