some time to tit their stock for exhibi

There is today an unprecedented re

out the west. The low price of corn,
.ubuLddnce of grain, an active demand
and favorable prices have combined to

the wealth and resources of the coun

their value is estimated at ?462,G39,G21.

We have purchased (because it is
just the thing we have needed) the
Columbian Cyclopedia Library, con-
slstlng of the Columbian encyclopedia,
which is also an unabridged dictionary
thirty-two volumes of convenient size
neatly bound, four volumes of thean
nual cyclopedic review, four volumes ol
current hlstoryfor 1S96, one Columbian
atlas and the neat convenient revolving
oak cas ewith glass doors. From the
evidence obtained we find that some
part of this work is placed In the
best private and public library In this
country an dabroad. for the reason
that they cover a field relative to the
past, present and future progress
and achievements of the human race
not attempted by others. The plan
is original, and the work throughout
Is carefully and ably written.
Current history contains 22 pages,
is issued two months after the close
of each quarter, this length of time
being taken to reduce all information
received to be an absolutely reliable
and authentic basis. If these are
kept on file, this magazine will prove
a permanent and Invaluable record of
all Important movements In political,
social religious, literary, educational
scientific and Industrial affairs.
The magazine will be indlspensible
to all people who have encyclopedias,
as it will be needed to keep these
works up to date. To those who do
not own encyclopedias It wHl be doubly
valuable as their source of information
is more limited. About March of
each vear the four volumes of current
history are bound Into one volume,
known as the Annual Cyclopedic Re
view. There are now four of these
bound volumes covering yearsl892-3-4
and 5. The work has for endorsers
and subscribers !n this city and state
such people as Mr. Gere, edltor-lnchlef
of the Lincoln State Journal., Hon.
Joe Hartley, state treasurer. Hon. W.
