they had removed about one-half

miles of the ditch was practically
completed. When it is considered
that all the excavating has been
done by scrapers, and that the
horses employed have been in poor
condition, the progressive and
persevering spirit of the stock
holders of the ditch is apparent.
They have met with many difficul
ties and drawbacks, but they are
determined to finish the ditch or
perish in the attempt.

Dear Sir: Members of the Chicago
Board of Tnide, and' of other business or
ganizations ofithie city, propose, as far
as. practicable, to provide seed wheat,
corn and oats to persons unable to pur
chase their ottn supply and to such per
sons only, the-same to be a loan to.be re
paid on harvesting the prospective crop,
and to be secured bv note and mortgage
on such crop: 'r We" trust that with the
efforts of other, organizations and com
mittees, material assistance may.be given
drouth-stricken sufferers.
This methodthas been adopted after
deliberation and correspondence with cit
izens of your state who have invariably
expressed the wish that it be done in
this way. To this end, and that the com
mittee appointed bv the Board of Trade
may act intelligently, any county needing
this assistance should organize for the
purpose of receiving, distributing and
properly handling supplies, and should
designate some one railroad station as a
receiving and distributing point.
We address you, believing you are in a
position to know the needs of your coun
ty, and that you will gladly bring this
matter to the attention of your business
men and all interested. We assume that
such counties as desire this aid will or
ganize, and reaaest that you notify Mr.
Geo. F. Stone,, Sec'y of the Board of
Trade, not later than Mar. 5th, as to the
fact of Such organization and particulars
as to its method ot operation; also esti
mated requhements of grain for its coun
ty, atd what aid, if any, will.be furnished
by you r otate, or'frbm any other source.
It is hardly necessary to add that such
organization do of the highest character,
and be properly certified to this commit
tee. We have- sent a like letter to all the
banks of your place.

In conformity with the above cir
cular the county relief committee
met yesterday- and it was agreed
that the chairman be authorized to
select some person to go to Lincoln
and see just what the state will do
in regard to paying the freight upon
the seed. John E. Evans, deputy
secretary of state, could probably
ascertain this information much
more readily,than any other individ
ual, and without any expense. The
great majority of people, farmers
and all classes, seemed to think the
above proposition a more feasible
plan than' to'attempt to vote bonds
for this- purpose.

zard has recently swept-over our
southern sister state Georgia, the

poses that the people of Nebraska
who lately received the train load
of corn donated by charitable Geor

S. W. Van Doran is up at Her

a tale. It appears that Samuel had
been drawn upon the jury for this
term of the district court. He is
an active member of the city fire
department, 'and knew something
more or .less, of the Heck case,
which had, the first call yesterday
morning; either of which facts
would iave excused him from sit
ting as a juror on the case. With
this knowledge he-trusted to Sheriff
Miller to gei him excused from duty.
The-latter, knowing-that Judge Ne
ville would b' cognizant of the cir
cumstances' -agreed to" make the
excuses for-the'tnissing juror. Jacob
had forgqUen.liowever, that Judge
Sinclair was jtor.preside at the pres
ent session and he, had some diffi
culty in convincing the latter that
everything was not all right, and
to prevent him from sending a
bench .warrant after Samuel for
contempt. The writer remembers
an amusing little episode some
years ago wherein ex-Judge Hamer,
the sitting judge (who was then
district prosecutor) and himself
were playing star roles; and in view
ot the happy termination of that
affair had Judge Sinclair thought
proper to impose a fine upon this
absent juror we would have felt it
a dutv to condole, with the latter.
