The board was of the opinion that cor

the law as it is written, that it woald not
be stretched or shrunken an inch to
accomodate anyone, that the words "local

with bat one meaning aad that the com

deputy assessors, the board will be guid

State Engineer Adna Dobson wishes
to warn all fanners in the irrigation dis
tricts to get as much water as possible
on their land early this spring, as the
indications are that there will be a
shortaee during the sammer months
when the moistare usually is applied.
Mr. Dobson has been unusually active
during the but month looking np con
ditions and finds that in the hills of
Colorado, the source of all the streams
which furnish water for Nebraska farm
ers, there is the lightest snowfall known
since the country was settled. In one
district where it was not unusual to find
eight or ten feet of snow bat eight inches
have fallen during the winter. Mr.
Dobson states that such a condition can
have but one effect; there is to be a
drouth so far as irrigation districts are
concerned. Bains in the spring, no
matter how heavy or bow frequent will
not materially alter the situation as the
rain water quickly runs off. It is the
great piles of mountain snow gradually
melting during the very hottest sammer
months which keeps the water supply
steady when it is most in demand.
"Get all you can while it lasts, and
begin as soon as possible,' is Mr. Dob-
The Nebraska Farmer reports the con
dition over the state for fruit as being
favorable for a good crop. At Arlington
all fruit tress, except the late varieties of
cherries, seem to be in good condition.
Mr. Stephens of Crete says he believes
"the eastern half of Nebraska will have
perhaps a half crop of poaches. In cen
tral and western Nebraska, careful ex
amination shows fruit buds of twenty
five leading varieties of peaches to be in
perfect condition. From Kenesaw, 165
miles west of Omaha, to Julesburg, CbL,
210 miles further west, we find peach
buds perfectly sound and promising a
full crop. Competent judges have ex
pressed the opinion that central Nebras
ka will grow peaches in commercial
quantities with more profit thtn eastern
Lincoln news to the Omaha Bee con
tained the following: "Lee Herdman,
financial agent of the democratic party
in Nebraska, clerk of the supreme court
and said to be leader of the reorganizers,
made a statement recently that he was
for Mr. Bryan as a delegateat-large to
the national democratic convention. At
the same time he stated that there was
only one obstacle in the way of the dem
ocrats nominating a winning ticket.
That obstacle would be eliminated if
Mr. Bryan woald drop the free coinage
of silver idea. Later Mr. Herdman ex
pressed the belief that Mr. Bryan would
not do Uns."
The fame of Nebraska text books has

Last week The Journal made men
tion of a bill which will be presented
before the Iowa state legislature provid
ing that children residing in the country
districts be allowed the privilege of
attending any high school in the county,
the district in which the pupil resides
paying the tuition. Our attention has
been called to the item, and we wish to
give our readers a few thoughts for con
sideration. We have at this time, ten
students outside the Columbus district,
attending the school here and paying
their own tuition, which is $2 a month
for students in the eighth and higher
grades, and $1.50 for all grades below
the eighth. Besides the tuition the chil
dren have board accounts, and their
expenses, amount to about the same as
if they were attending any college or
university. These country boys and
girls who wish to advance are entitled to
a higher education than the average
country school can give, and as the dis
trict is not in position to supply them
with their wants there are many people
who believe it right and just that the
home district, where the taxes are paid,
should bear the expense of the schooling
elsewhere. Nebraska has had two state
laws similar to the one proposed ia Iowa,
but both have been declared uaconstitu-
tional by the supreme court.
Albert Luth writes The Journal a
letter telling about the land in Stevens
county, Washington. Mr. Luth has a
farm there and aaya he is pleased with
the country and the opportunities it
affords. He also sends a clipping from
a paper which gives a good idea of the
locality, a few facte from which he sug
gests we reproduce for the benefit of
those who are seeking homes and invest
ments. The following will be of interest
to all such: "The Empire county" of
the "Evergreen state" comprises 5,000
square miles. Its topography is as diver
sified aa its resources. Semi-mountainous,
its mountains contain deposits of
gold and silver for treasure seekers,
copper and lead for the industrious,
marble, granite and slate for the builder,
clays for the potter and brickmaker, and
upon the mountain slopes and foothills
timber in abundance. The lands of the
valleys produce big crops of grain, hay
and vegetables without irrigation. The
fruits, grains, grssscs and vegetables
raised in Stevens county have taken
prizes wherever exhibited; its fruit is
free from the ravages of the 'Orchard
paste. Thousands of acres of govern
ment land are yet open for settlement
sufficient to provide hundreds with free
homes. Deeded lands may also be pur
chased at prices varying according to
locality and improvements. Unimproved
land may be bought from $3 to $6 per
acre. Improved farms from $6 to $30
