LINCOLN. May 4.-tSpecial.)-If on
certain resident of Thayer county had
known how much trouble be could have
ved himself, the uwuor of hit county
and, Henry Seymour, secretary of the
State Board of Equalisation, he would
have shipped his cattle one day earlier
and paid off what he owend on them
betore April 1, the date on which the
Personal property assessment Is made.
However, he shipped his stock the last
day of March and sold them on the
south Omaha market the first day
-April. If they are assessed as catt'e he
is entitled under the law to no deduction
for what be owed and the same Is true
If the assessment la made of money, but
lr tne money is treated aa an account he
Is entitled to a deduction for the amount
he owed under the law passed for the
benefit of merchants carrying heavy
stocks of goods for which they owed on
a large part Mr. Seymour has turned
the question over to the attorney general
to solve.
Labor Commissioner Quye feels that
he has made some headway In settling on
farms the colony of Jews, who desired
to leave Chicago and become Nebraska
farmers. One result not at first antici
pated waa the removal of about forty
families on this nationality from N
liruska towns to Kinkald homesteads In
' Grant county. He has also succeeded
In getting the members -of the Chicago
colony In consultation with a large Ne
braska landholder, who is willing to sell
and also to erect houses and stock farms
for them, but the Chicago people do
not have enough capital to make the
Initial payment he desires. He has,
however, made them a proposition to put
iil buildings, furnish Implements and
stock for the farms and let the colonists
work the land on a percentage basis until
they accumulate enough money to make
a substantial Initial payment on the
land. There is a strong prospect this
scheme wll work out as there la every
reason to believe the Jewish Colonisation
society will aid these people If they
demonstrate they can make a living on
the farm and ultimately pay for the land
Mr. Guye Is also hopeful of locating the
Russian colonists, whose agent wrote
him some time ago from San Francisco.
These people have more meana than the
Chicago party and It la a question of
satisfying them with the prospect..
The first examination for the year for
city and state teachers certificates will
be held in the various counties May 17

In unfair oompetltloa with Nebraska
wholesalers, whose gToods must stand In

of these parties they are enabled to sail

goods. Mr. Hansen also reports that

SUTHERLAND, Neb., May 4 -(Special.)
Indications are that a considerable
part of the Kinkald country of north
Lincoln and McPherson counties will this
season resemble a huge potato paten.
Thousand of bushels of excellent quality
potatoes were grown up there last year
and the receipts for the season's crop
have put some of the farmers In excellent
humor. Therefor th acreage will be
large almost every farmer growing form
on to several acres. One drawback has
been th distance from market. In many
Instances, but the price has been such
that the grower could afford to haul his
produos a long way. Hud reds of bushels
of potatoes remain In that section from
last year, th owners having held their
crop for high prices.
