aigned by the ,ireident yesterday,
authorize the directori of the
veterans bureau to accept just uch
Kiiti at the Grand Island soldiers
home, which includes a section of
land within its environs.
i lu: entire Xehra.ska delegation in
congress joined in a letter to Direc
tor Forbes asking hint to favorably
consider the tender of the home at
Grand Maud, which Mr. McClellan
was authorized to make on behalf of
the Mate through an act of the
legi-.lature, the several veterans a
ociations. and the citizens of Grand
Island. There are several soldiers
homes in dificrent parts of the
country operated by states and this
movement on the part of Nebraska
will encourage a like movement on
the part of other states that have
hospitals and homes for such pur
poe. The new plan, it Js believed, will
save a vast amount of money to the
iedcral government in the purchase
of Sites and the erection of build
ings for purposes of taking care of
the veterans of all our wars, cither
through hospitalization or through
proper housing. According to Con
gressman Anderson, who is the
lather of this new scheme,, the plan
will utilize the homes that have been
constructed for confederate soldiers
as well as those of the union army
The states having made the donation
and the federal government having
assumed the responsibility for the
care of the homes, the states will be
relieved of all responsibility in the
maintenance of these institutions.

Keith, Deuel and Perkins county ir
rigation project. In the west end of
the procct seven large reservoirs
.have been surveyed which will hold
enough water to irrigate about 60.000
acres or land. 1 he survey of the
inairi line : canals connecting these
reservoirs will-, be completed this
The east end of the? project, which
takes in eastern Keith county and
western Lincoln county, will be sur

is estimated that storage capacity to
irrigate another' 60,000 will be
found in this locality. -,,
.The farmers are becoming creatlv
enthused over the prospects of a
moderate-priced and successful irrt
gation system. There has been much
doubt in the minds of many of the
land owners as to whether or not
there is storage capacity enough to
give everyone wafer who is desirous
of putting it on their, lands. Within
the next 60 days the engineers will

how much the complete . irrigation
project will cost per acre. If it

Thomas said. "And so are short

waists and rouge and powder. I
believe in all of them. I bobbed my
ouu hair because my head ached
from carrying the load. It is just as
sensible to have your hair bobbed as
it is to have your tonsile or teeth re
moved, or to have our appendix put

serve today in our best homes go out
on the street and try to sell passers

over the country which thought
they d have to close their doors when
prohibition came, and today they are
enlarging their quarters to handle
the former drinkers of light wines
