During the past year our distin
guished townsman, Col. I. A. Fort,
has made a great many speeches on
irrigation. His talk has awakened
marked interest in the subject, and
to-day western Nebraska is on a
wave of prosperity that will prob
ably make somebody seasick. The
secret of Col. Fort's success lies in
his earnest way of telling the plain,
unfrilled truth. Grown men have
been seen shedding tears of joy as
he told in simple, touching words
the story of happy homes and
bountiful harvests that arc the
"inevitable consequence of irriga
tion, and little children have looked
with hungry eyes as he has spoken
of his last year's crop of vegetable,
oysters and pumpkin pies. He
never exaggerates. Exaggeration
is unnecessary and Col. Fort knows
it as well as any man. The plain
narrative of the prosperity of Lin
coln county farmers who irrigate is
enough, and so he tells the tale to
ttle barbarians outside the pale of
Lincoln county civilization in a
pleasant, unassuming way that is
remarkably convincing. A few re
marks taken at random from one of
his speeches will indicate his happy
and effective style. Out in Keith
county the other day he said: "My
friends, back in my county we have
irrigated for nearly two hundred
years, and to-day we are reaping
the benefit. On my home ranch I
can raise anything. My cranberry
patch joins my wheat held on the
north, and on almost any day, ex

winter. I can walk between the two
