PUSH THE WORK.
The agents are meeting- with fail
success ' in obtaining membership
names lor the Lincoln County Im
migration -Association. The plan
of the organization has received a
most careful scrutiny and no objec
tion has been urged against a sin
gle feature. The plan of operation
is such that all communities and
individuals will receive their pro
portion of the benefits to be de
rived. Notwithstanding the hard
luck of the past few years those
who own what are termed "dry
farms" will undoubtedly hold on to
them. We have, however, room for
many thousands of families in the
irrigated district. There are as
main- families in this state aud
elsewhere who are looking for farms
in such irrigated districts.
An advertisement recently pub
lished in the Nebraska Farmer by
one of our ditch companies brought
among others an inquiry from a
prominent farmer in the southern
part of this state, resulting in the
sale of an irrigated farm. This
gentleman while here said that this
advertisement was the first intima
tion lie had had of a successful ir
rigation district in the state of Ne
braska on a railroad. The fact of
a man of his prominence leaving
his native town will attract atten
tion from many others who would
then be interested in advertising
matter relative to his prospective
home and such as the Immigration
Association proposes getting out.
In fact since this man returned
home supplied with meagre infor
mation, another farm has been sold
to a neighbor. Such people will
put up houses at once and will be a
source of revenue to every business
man in town to some extent.
If by the expenditure of the
.-mall amount necessary to start
this advertising only fifty families
are brought into this valley, more
will follow them and the money
will be well expended.

A recent dispatch from Omaha to
the Chicago Inter Ocean says:
There is a great deal of unwrit
ten history connected with the re
cent foreclosure suit brought by the
trustees of the first mortgage bonds
of the Union Pacific in St. Louis
last week. As early as last July
Judge Sanborn intimated to the
trustees of the first mortgage bonds
that an action in foreclosure would
have to be brought in order to keep
the stockholders' interest in the
property subject to the direction of
the court, otherwise the court might
decide to transfer the direction of
the property back to the directors of
There are so many contracts,
which in the present condition of
business operate against the ad

necessary to have these contracts
amended or revised along the lines
favorable to one of the parties, at
least, to tiie contract. This could
not be done without foreclosure,
which would have been necessary
under an circumstances if a read

at all desirable.

devising means to provide feed and
seed for the farmers of Custer coun

was one for the formation of a joint

SI per share, and soliciting every
man in the county to assist the
move by contributing what he could
to the fund from SI up, and extend
the opportunity to the wholesale
houses, banks and loan companies
of the eastern states, churches and

Mr. Henry Herman, of Milwaukee,
Wis., president of the Gothenburg
Power and Irrigation company, of
this city, spent last Monday in look
ing over the company's interests at
this place, and brought with him
something like S5.000 which was
paid out on last Tuesday to laborers
who worked upon the new irrigation
ditch that they are constructing.
This should forever settle the re
ports that have been circulated by a
few superstitious parties regarding
the completion of this ditch, and if
they will just rest until spring they
will find the canal completed and
the water in it ready for irrigation.
This should convince the citizens of
Gothenburg, and the farmers adja
cent to this place, that this company
is here to stay, aud that they mean
business, and are not only working
for the interests of the city but
of the country as well. This com
pany has not taken advantage of
any one in this deal. They have
gone to work, paid the cash for labor
in constructing it, without knowing
whether or not they can sell water
rights for an acre of ground. The
have not canvassed the country and
compelled the fanners to put up
water rights enough to build the
canal and pay fat salaries to the
instigators of the scheme, but are
building it at par, and will be able
to sell water, comparatively speak

board of agriculture Professor
Swczey. meteorologist, reported on
the phenomenal weather of the past
season. Only thirteen inche of

temperature on July 26 was the
highest ever recorded. This element
of temperature is fully as import

on the effect of the past summer's

in part: As affecting the question
of irrigation by means of wells it is
important to know whether our
underground supply of water can
be depended upon in dry seasons.
The past year affords an excellent
opportunity, it is to be hoped we
