The date, on which the treasurer expects
to make 'up the delinquent lint will be
about September i. Parties not paying- be
foro that date wilt find their property has
been advertised under the state law for
taxes. 'The treasurer asked that this fact
be announced, aa the taxes which are de
linquent have In most caaea simply been
overlooked. "The owners of property often
neglect the psyment of taxes until the laat
minute," says the deputy, "not because
they cannot pay. but because they have
not been reminded of the necessity."
The law anticipates that 10 per cent of
the tax will nominally fail to be collected.
In South Omaha only 7 per cent remains
to be collected.

Berar Visits City
George M. Berge was In South Omaha
yesterday trying to harmonise the warring
elements of the South Omaha democratic
camp. He visited 'the offices of the city
clerk, the South Omaha livestock ex
change and several other points. He says
he has- been misrepresented by parties
favoring his opponents at the primaries.
He said: "I hoped that the question of
county option, or th enforcement of the
liquor laws would be mad a paramount
Issue In this campaign. I stand much In
the same position as Governor Sheldon on
th question. I shall endeavor to enforce
all laws In a Just and reasonable man

radical measures.'. I should prefer that the

Mr. Berge accused . his opponents with
playing on th county option queatlon, and
and trimming to .both sides. He thought
ha had made .his position sufficiently
clear, but If forced Into a campaign on the
Issue he said he. would beat no retreat
from Us principles In the matter.

During the last legislative session, at the
request of Mr. W. G. Ure, for the Omaha
Real Estate exchange, together .with Mr.
Victor Rosewater and Mr. Ure, the writer
attended all sessions at which the terminal
tax bill waa under consideration.
A I well known, the terminal tax bill
was In grave danger during ' It' entire
course. While It was passed on final roll
call with a margin of five votes, on the
preceding crucial ballot it passed by th
narrow margin of but two votes.
Mr. E. B. Qusckenbush, an attorney of
Auburn, Neb., now a candidate for ths
democratic nomination for attorney general.
waa then a member of th legislature. The
friends of the terminal tax mil appealed for
aid to Mr. Quackenbush, aa one of the
most Influential members of the' house.
After careful consideration, Mr. Quacken
bush gavs the bill his earnest support, and
in so doing csrrled with him several of his
democratic colleagues, thereby contributing
the balance of power necessary to carry
the bill to It passage.

For the fourth time the Burwood theater
ha been opened by a atock company that
will be resident during th winter scsson.
In the audience last evening were many
who were present on that blistering hot
evening In 1906, when the doors of ths
house were first swung apart to admit lis
guests, and who have attended each time
since, and these were most emphatic In
their announcement that the present is
the most promising of all. The theater
wa crowded and It was more Ilk a fam
ily gathering, perhaps, than a formal
theater party. old friends recog
nised old friends, and the exchange of
compliments was cordial and persistent.
While each member of the company was
given a "reception" on entering, and the
strangers were made to feel that they were
among friendly people, t was for Miss
Elliott that the real demonstration waa
reserved. Her appearance we the occasion
of a long continued clapping of hands.
while she bowed and smiled, and bowed
and smiled again, the enthusiasm of her
welcome gaining until she came down to
the footlights and waved her acknowledge
ment. Clad In one of the very latest of
Parisian creation, a sheath gown of soft
gray material, with a hat to match, her
bright face glowing with the excitement of
the occasion, she made a picture that
brought her many compliments In the
course of the comment. Omaha folks had
not forgotten her, and she was made to
feel It. Mr. Grew stepped out of his rols
long enough to give a brief word of appre
ciation for the welcome extended him, and
the other took their greeting with sp
parent satisfaction. And when the first
act waa ended Miss Elliott was fairly bur
led in flowers, and at the close of tha sec
ond act she got more flowers, and ao on
through the evening. No woman ever had
more occasion to be proud of her hold on
the popular heart in Omaha. At the close
of the third act Mr. Todd "got his," In the
shape of a floral addition to the glad up
roar his entrance occasioned. Altogether,
It was a most enjoyable evening for aud
ience and actors alike, and the season is
fairly started under the best of conditions.
The play wo given with excellent pre
cision,' when one thinks of how much oc
curred to distract the attention of the
actors. Mr. Grew, th leading man, shows
evidences of ability which will produce
many a good performance during the .ea
on. He carrlea himself well, ha a good
voice, and speaks his lines well, especially
the more serious ones. Mr. Connor, also a
new comer, Is quick and vivacious, and will
be popular In the Juvenile rolee. John Todd
Is a year and aome montha older than
when he trod the boards of th Burwood
last, but h doesn't look It. His added ex
perience has simply made him a better
actor, and hi friend realise thl. Mr.
Bacon la a comedian of the truest type.

men are all well remembered, and all are
Mlsa Elliott enters on her new engage
ment with the same earnest determina
tion that marked her closing performance
at tne theater in Dcember, 1906. Many were
there last night who saw her play Camille,
and remembered the compelling force and
life with which she endowed that woman.
Dora Headway Is a widely different tvoe
of woman, but Mis Elliott takea her up
jusi aa enously, and seemingly enjoy
ths lighter scenes of the comedy a much
she did the more serious work of th
tragedy. Sho ha a dainty, deftness of
touch, certain of her reaults, holding
nerseir well in hand, but missing
no point that will glv light on
th action of the comedy In hand, and al
together satisfying her audience. Last
night she wa affected to aome degree by
the enthusiasm of her welcome, but not
enough to destroy her poise. Her' popu
larity waa well attested, and Is well de
served. Miss Jeffrey Is simply bully a Mrs. Glib.
and made a great personal hit when she
checked the demand for a speech from
Mr. Bacon In the role of Mr. Glib. "George
Is ao excitable." she aald to the audience,
and In the laughter that followed thl pat
ally the situation was saved.
' Miss Beyers Is a handsome womsn, with
evident capacity. She Is hidden in a minor
role this week, but will be heard from be
fore the season is over. Miss Stearns, In
genue of the company, 1 a pretty girl, with
a quick, snappy way, and ought to establish
herself very firmly during the season.
And last of all. Herr Director Hoffman

the drinking of liquids flushes the system of waste.
Every doctor knows that most people drink too little.
On this account, their systems become clogged with waste.
There lies the main good of watering places. They
induce the drinking of water.
That is one reason why the drinking of beer is good
for you. It leads you to drink more liquid than you would
drink without it. And that liquid is both a food and a tonic.
The sturdiest peoples of the earth drink the most of it.
But be sure that the beer is aged, so it will not cause,
biliousness. And be sure it is pure.

UNIVERSITY, OF NEBRASKA.
Summer Activity of the Farm and
Professor H. R. Smith of the Department
of Animal Husbandry returned form the
east August 18 and ha alnce been oc
cupying himself with ths regular cor
respondence of th depsrtment and mat
ters pretalning to the management of
the university herd.
While In the east he spent one week at
Ithaca, N. T., where a conference of ani
mal nutrition Investigator wa held. As
result of this meeting it was voted that
an American association of inlmal nutri
tion Investigator was desirable, and a
committee of flv waa. appointed to form
ulate plana for such organisation and to
outline plans for the work that is de
serving attention In this field of Investi
gation. The committee named consist
of Dr. Armsby of Pennsylvania, Director
Jordan of Nw York, Director Water of
Missouri, Dean Skinner of Indiana, and
Prof. Smith of Nebraska. It seemed
to be the general opinion that such an
organisation would bring about more con
certed action v among the varloua states,
and thst greater progress in feeding ex
periments throughout the country at large
would follow. The Importance of ev
tensive and thorough work along these
lines csnnot be overestimated.
While attending the conference of ex
periment station workers st Ithaca, N. Y.,
Prof. Smith attended the lecture of
Dr. Zunts of Berlin University, Germsny,
who Is one of th .world's most noted in
vestigators along the line of foods as
sources of energy and heat. While at
Ithaca, he also took occasion to make
the acquaintance of several candidates
for th position of asststsnt professor of
snlmal husbandry in th university. It
was finally decided to recommend Mr.
C. W. Pugsley as professor Magdanz's
successor. Mr. Pugsley graduated in the
University of Nebraska a few years ago
and ha icn been operating a large farm
In Iowa. He ha been unusually suc
cessfully in conducting short courses snd
farmera' institute work in Nebraska, and
his knowledge of animal husbandry sub
jects will unquestionably make him a val
uable man In the department.
A recent acquisition to the department
la a trio of mule-foot pigs, shipped from
Indiana. Thla new breed resembles In
msny ways ordinary Poland-Clilnas with
ths exception thst the foot consists of one
solid hoof, resembling that of a mule. Tliey
ar aald to be Immune from cholera and
from observations already made at our
station this claim seems to be Justified.
Dr. Peter of the Department of Animal
Pathology has recently completed th Im
munisation of th anttr awin. Iteid belong
ing to thla department. The work was
done by the new government process, and
the resulta would seem to indicate that It
Is a success. The entire herd Is now Im
mune from future attack of th disease
and but seven losses resulted from the ef
fects of ths process. There were of pigs,
most of Poland-Chinas. The reports from
other ststes ere equally favorable and It
Is probsble thst within a few years a
large number of farmers will be adopting
this method to eliminate the losses result
ing from th nvuti of this dreaded dis
ease. Several animala were very sick as
a result of the Immunising, but a number
showed no effect whstev.r snd did not
lose a single fee4 In consequence. How
' - '
ever, there Is likely to be a considerable
shrinkage of weight during the process.
The Nebraska Corn commission will have
a booth at the state fair grounds and have
on exhibition samples of corn and other
thing Intended to furnish instruction to
farmer who contemplate making up an
exhibit to be shown at the National Corn
exposition, which will be held at Omaha
next December. A bulletin of the corn
commission has been compiled and wilt be
distributed during , the fair. The bulletin
contains many fine cuts and descriptions
which will be very helpful to all students
of corn production and particularly those
who wish Information to help them to
make, up fine exhibits for the exposition.
Joseph A. Roeen, chief of the agricultural
bureau of the governmental semstvo of
Eknterlnoslav, Russia, recently spent a
few days at the station studying agricul
tural conditions of Nebraska, and while
hero made arrangements for having shipped
to him samples of all the best types of tho
different grains grown nt the station.
Mr. Beni Madhav Chatterjee of Calcutta,
India, who has been attending the Cornell
Agricultural college the last year, visited
the experiment station August 25. He ex
pects to return to his native land some
tlmo this year, but will first devote a month
or two to visiting the various experiment
stations' and other places of interest to
agriculture in America. Mr. Chatterjee
expects to take an active part In establish
ing an experiment station in India, similar
to such- institution In this country, and
will take up some of the most Important
subjects In agriculture In hi own land.
His reference to the agricultural impor
tance of India may be noted when we con
alder hi tatement, "that India, while be
ing but one-third the area of the United
States. Is obliged to support 300,000,000 peo
ple. Much of the area Is semi-arid, re
quiring Irrigation and dry farming meth
ods." The university Is planning to send out
lady speakers and Judges to about forty
boys' and girls' county contests this fall.
All of these contests will be held before
the National Corn Exposition In Omaha.
The dates of the contests sre practically
all fixed and will be published In the rtext
Issue of Agriculture. In addition to the
regular farmers' Institute and boys' and
girls' contests, the department Is planning
to conduct two farmers' Institute schools
or short course. One of these schools wa
held at Pawnee City last year, during the
week of February 10-15. Quite a number of
committees were anxious to substitute the
short course for the regular institute, but
the authorities at the university decided
to hold only one or two of these schools
this yesr. Arrangements have slresdy
been made to hold one at Broken Bow. the
other at Hebron. It was especially grati
fying to see three boys who had attended
the School of Agriculture sign the guar
antee pledging 110 each to the support of
the short course at Broken Bow.
