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. North Platte at the present time has an advantage over anv town in the state and if the situation is j fully appreciated by our citizens, this will manifest itself before long H. H.

Visit the office of the Association, make suggestions, give the secretarv the names of any friends you would like supplied with advertising" mat tor, enthuse others, and in five vears we will have a town here ot 10.000 and a country around it that will support it. We are all right now; we show the largest per cent- jage ot growtn ot any important I town in the state between the years Winters is working on an in Peckham pre cinct. A deep interest is said to be man ifested in the revival meetiugs which are still in progress in the new school house in the Stoddard district. The old ditch company has i-old several tracts of land recently to parties from abroad. For the first time in several months this station is void of cars for hay shipments. 13. R. Gibbens returned a few days ago from a trip through Mis souri and Arkansas. He is not very favorably impressed with that country. A large quantity of corn from along the ditch has been sold so far this season to parties from over in the south sand hills.

These statistics include such towns as Lincoln with a per cent age of 324.16. Hastings 3S2.22. Ne braska City 174.78 and Omaha 300.23. By proper effort our growth can easily be pushed faster than here tofore, and we will be able to hold our own at the head of the list dur ing the present decade. It will take united action to do this, as a few cannot be depended upon to do ail the work and to furnish means, nor will the;, be content to follow the wurl; up unless they have I the encouragement of the whole i communitv.

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 the company. There are so many contracts, which in the present condition of business operate against the ad vancement of the Union Pacific sys tem, that it has become essentially 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 justment of present difficulties was at all desirable. As the suits in foreclosure are IRRIGATION NOTES.

The treasurer of Deuel county is in shape to pay all outstanding war rants. There are few counties in western Nebraska in such good financial shape as Deuel. It is said that Perkins county has received five times as much aid. in proportion to its population, as any county in western Nebraska. It also was one of the populist strong holds last fall. A special election to vote irriga tion bonds in the sum of $10,000 has been called in Cozad precinct, Daw son county. Our sister county is pushing irrigation ditches along al- Y 1. brought1-upon various lines anAthe 19 present receivers are anf;wited under the bills of complaint, the old suits brought by the stockholders bejiin to grow less burdensome and finally the receivers under the new suits, ceased to have atn interest in the old cases, and they are removed from the court, so to speak. Under foreclosure suits the earnings are kept separate, the court directs what use is to be made of certain funds, and gradually the end ap proaches when the property is to be offered for sale. So the grind of the court reduces the many complica tions until the final run is made, when the property is in a position to be taken for its actual value in reorganization. It is pretty generally understood that all the foreclosure proceedings brought on the various properties formerly constituting the Union Pa cific system will be pushed rapidly to final adjudication in order that the reorganization committee may have something to work upon in re organizing what was once the great est railroad property in the country. A PLAN FOR RELIEF. A meeting was held at Broken Bow last week for the purpose of devising means to provide feed and seed for the farmers of Custer coun ty, and among the plans suggested was one for the formation of a joint stock company, fixing the stock at 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 civic societies, soliciting them to contribute money or grain with a view of providing seed and feed for hauling Pat.

These deep wells, going down pre sumably to a sheet of water on a level with some adjacent river, the Platte, the Loup, or the like, were absolutely unaffected b the drouth. In some cases windmills were re ported as running incessantly day and night for irrigation purposes, or to supply city water, or the like, without affecting in the least the supply. It seems evident that the greater part of the state is under laid by an inexhaustible sheet of water which may be drawn upon indefinitely for irrigation purposes, even in seasons of drouth like the past." the sprin When received seed and feed would then be furnished i .. ... i tne tanner, on contract to pay one tenth of his crop for the use of the seed, this one-tenth crop to be paid to the contributors that is. one-tenth of all received on rrain shall be apportioned to the several donors in proportion to the amount the subscribed.

Keith County News. 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 ing, a low as as any company in this count, and will doit, for if the country around this city is all under irrigation, it will be the means of establishing paying factories here which will be the first step toward building up a permanent city. In dependent. At the recent meeting of the state board of agriculture Professor Swczey. meteorologist, reported on the phenomenal weather of the past season. Only thirteen inche of rainfall fell "in Nebraska. The temperature on July 26 was the highest ever recorded. This element of temperature is fully as import ant as the precipitation in crop re sults. Observations had been made on the effect of the past summer's drouth on wells. Mr. Swezey said 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 shall never have a better one, for PRAISE, ONLY, FHO-M ALIi WHO USE AVER'S Hair Vigor "Avcr's preparations are too 63 well known to need anvcoinmen- o dation from me ; but 1 feel coin- g! pclled to state, for the benefit of others, that six years ago, I lost o nearly half of my hair, and what oj was "left turned gray.
