district No. 2 of Dakota county and
the board of supervisors was decided
in favor of the defendants by Federal
Judge Wood rough. The hearing con
sumed ten days in federal court.

to prevent the supervisors from con
structing a drainage ditch to carry the
waters of Elk creek into Jackson lake,
claiming that if this were done the
water in the lake would rise and flood
plaintiff's property. Judge Woodrough
denied the injunction, holding that the
evidence failed to show that such
damage would result.

As Guests of Charley Irwin
They Eat in "Wild West"
HOBNOB WITH COWBOYS
Talk about your impromptu outings.
The board of governors of Ak-Sar-Ben
had such an outing at noon yes
terday. They were guests of Charley
Irwin at camp mess in the big mess
tent at the wild west camp on the fair
grounds, where several score of cow
boys, cowgirls, Mexicans and Sioux
Indians are encamped preparatory to
entering the frontier event contests
Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sun
day of this week.
Mrs. Charles Irwin was a fine hos
tess and buzzed around the tables in
the big mess tent, seeing to it tli.it
everyone was provided for. Indians,
cowboys, Mexicans and cowgirls all
messed together in the big tent.
There was roast beef right from the
range, and then there was ice cream
from the finest ice cream factories in
Omaha, and angel food cake from
the classiest bakeries in Omaha. Thus
the rough-fare mess of the range was
blended with the choicest del.ca.cics
of the most modern banquet hall, and
alt under the "big white tent" that ra
diated the heat oT the sun and boomed
in the wind.
Could Dieta Performs.
Then some frontier exhibitions
were given for the benefit of the
f governors. When a little Mexican
ed out a long-homed brindle steer,
Gould Dietz mounted him bare-backed,
and flourished a big sombrero. Everett
Buckingham shook hands with Chief
Little-Bull-of-the-Sioux, and chatted
amiably in the Sioux tongue about the
glories of Powder river. Charley
Beaton made friends with a papoose
boy of 5 years, and engaged him in
a war dance, while the photographers
clicked and clicked their cameras. The
cowgirls rode in a wild horse race,
the cowboys held a spectacular relay
race, and the varioua members of
the board paraded the grounds arm
in arm with Indian squaws.
And during all this impromptu per
formance, several Indians stood high
up in the judges' stand, lazily looking
on, Chief Sitting Bull, jr., son of the
notorious chief, among them, in yel
low shirt and war feathers, calmly
rolling a cigarette.

The big Allied offensive is in full swine, and according to the New York Evening Post,
"we are not now watching an isolated attack like that of the Russians in East Prussia, or a
costly but ineffectual stroke" like that of the English at Neuve Chapelle and Loos, but "a
carefully studied and deliberately waited-f or campaign of severe pressure upon Germany at
each of her battle-fronts." , v
A complete description of all the moves in this great clash between the mightiest
armies ever Known, with maps and other illustrations, is given in THE LITERARY DIGEST

All the Indications of public sentiment on
the many issues of the day are infallibly regis
tered in THE LITERARY DIGEST. When the
country is growing stormy over foreign infringe
ments of American rights, all degrees of feeling
in different sections and parties, as expressed in
the Press, are recorded in The Digest. And at
the same time is given the calm advice of
authorities who can analyze the situation. If
some movement for American progress arouses
warm enthusiasm, the reader of The Digest has
all the details laid before him and likewise
when the people evince cold disapproval of any
political policy foreign or domestic. Foreign
opinion is shown in the same way. The heated
contentions of enemy belligerents, the trouble
brewing in countries whose neutrality is uncer
tain, the favor or disfavor expressed toward the
United States all this you will find also. You
can judge conditions the world over by getting
a complete understanding of Public Opinion as
it is faithfully registered in THE LITERARY
