Advance aheets from the biennial report
of I .and Commissioner H. M. Eaton convey
bn Information thai the state of Nebraska
In the laat two years has sold 7.617 acres
of school land for the sum of fl.23i.4si.7l.
This is equivalent to an average of 115. T2
per arre, or more than twice the minimum
figure cf 17 aa fixed by the slate constitu
tion. The lands are scattered over sixty
or more counties in the state.
As origlaally appraised, the school acre,
age disposed of during the lilennlum was
given a valuation of rntt.SKs.31. The practice
of reviewing appraisements resulted In rain
ing that sum by f:'!U,131.40. or 27 per cent.
Some of the tracts, however, were increased i
30 per cent above the first valuation. The
prices received by the state ranged up to
MB per acre.
Knox county Is the banner one for acre
age that passed from the state to private
hands, the sales there aggregating t.i2
acren. It also led the Hat in the amount of
money received, which was IKiG.34:. Bonis of
the other counties where the volume of
sales reached an extensive totnl were: Daw
sun, 5.00B acres, sold for 177.12; Antelope,
4,400 acres, sold for I72.MO.
No land was sold In a number of eastern
counties where the school domain has been
practically exhausted, except for lands held
by the state subject to lease only. Among
these eountlea Here Richardson. Nemaha,
Otoe. Johnson, Douglas. Dodge and Cuming.
In western Nehraska many counties are
not represented In the list because the land
they contain has not yet rlaen In value to
t7 per acre, which Is the least that the
state can accept for It. Hayes. Terklns.
Cheyenne, Kimball, Banner, Cherry and

liam Kvana of thla city, while digging
near the Rulo elevator, discovered a small
sack full of old money. He was atden- 1
Ing the ditch that leads the sun lus water j
from the engine room, when his spauc
struck a hard substance. II. II. Mann,
the general manager, examined It and
found It waa two 50-cent piecca that had
become atuck together by mud. Digging
still deeper, he dug up a small ssck con
taining about l?n In money, mostly In
small pieces, dimes half-dimes, dollars,
half-dollars, quarters and a few $2. SO gold
pieces. Some Sonnlsh an 1 Mexican coins
were mixed with It. The dates of the
colna varied from 1729 to m. One gold
piece bore the latter date and was as
bright as though new. The corners were
sharp, as If It had been handled but little.
This money was probably burled in the
sixties, during the Jsyhawkar times here.
Mr. Kasly. a retired merchant of thla
city, uaed to live In a house thst was
located over this spot. Mr. Randolph
lived there later, but when the $t. 000,000
bridge was built this house was moved
to make way for the laying of the new
road bed. There was a cellar under this
house and the grade thrown up went down
to It. and Indications go to show that
this money was hidden or burled In this
cellar. One piece of silver, as large ss
the bottom ,of a teacup, bore the words.
"Peru. M. J." The date represent nearly
every yraf from 1729 to 1S and their
value, according to the (.rices advertised
by buyers- of rsre coins, will perhsps
amount to several hundred dollars.
