I KANSAN JUDICIAL CANDIDATE: I GOING TO SAVE . 'I FAIR GROUND NOTES. I RURAL SCHOOL fyhi'rita I V "Value, of Accretion, Land in Brtof County Amounts to Large; Sum. The value of a few acres of ac: cretjon land on a single farm along the river is generally considered to a trilling amount, but taken in the aggregate for an entire county it U amounts' to a sum of considerable .magnitude. According to the report of County Clerk Younkin, 2263.4 acres of accre tion, land along the Arkansas river has been platted and placed on th tax rolls this summer and fall the to tal value of which amounts to $69, 020.00, and is divided among the town hips thTough which the river runs as follows: ' Pawnee Rock Twp. 45 acres, val ue $1,800.- Liberty Twp. 45 acres value $23,900. South Bend Twp. 371 acres, value $8,6100. Great Bend Twp. 93.4 acres, value $3,760. . Lakia Twp. 262 acres, value $10, 00. Comanche Twp. 641 acres, value $18,060. This means a, big difference in the tax rolls for the county for this .year. Mr. Younkia says there is still a considerable amount of the .accretion land to be surveyed and .platted la the county, which would bring the total amount up to about -$75,000. PUBLIC AUCTION.

According to the Pawnee Rock Herald of last week, the board of ed- ucation at that place has given per mission for the schools to close one day during the fair and the scholars will be in attendance in a body. One of the provisos of the permission was that they prepare a display for the fair.

The main objec tion to the volunteer crop is that it starts too early la the falL and the stand is generally bunchy and un even, but that crop this year, on ac count of the dry weather did not be gin to show up until the recent rains, and the stand seems to be very even on most of the fields. Dave Ewing, who was in from the west side Saturday, reported that he had started drilling a 175 acre field, but after working for a couple of days had made up his mind that he was wasting good seed, and will let the rest of the field go. as it is. Ha says the stand as fine and even e a, person could desire, and he bel'eves it will make fully as good a crop as if drilled in. Dan Bird, Charley Archer and a number of his other neighbors have fields In the same condition and are going to pur sue the same policy. Frank Komar-ek,- John Doherty and a large mum ber of the farmers north and east of Ellinwood, have fields with an - ex cellent stand of volunteer growth and it is reported that much of this will be left without sowing. Mr. Komar ek has one field of thirty acers now large enough to pasture and it is said the stand Is as even and pret ty as was ever seen. If the wheat will turn out all right it Is going to save the farmers cf this county sev eral thousand dollars worth of seed wheat, and will also save them many thousands .of dollars which would be spent for feed, as it is said that the volunteer wheat should be pastured heavily to make a good crop.
