The Slule DimkI of Agrloiiltuie,
throtwh Its publicity department, if
maid ig mi linottlgulloti of the amount
of money expended for roml improve
ment in Nebraska. K. J. Koidusoti, ex
tunlner of county treasurers for the
State Audltoi'i olllee, hah fut'iiMied a
partial compilation of these funds,
which shows Im go expenditures. .Mr.
Robinson's report covers thirty nine
counties east of the llrst guide lueridl
nil, which is a line drawn from the
western boundary of Knox county south
to tho western liMiiudarv of Nuckolls
county. 'J'lie territoiv examined doe
not inuliiile Saunders or Dniigltii eoitn
ty nor tho city of Ideidii, nor t lie towns
and villages within Hie eouutius ex
anillied. . Tho total expenditures for
roads and bridges ill these thirty nine
counties from IIMMi to 1U10 I- W.aMyMK.
During the same period the county
treasurer of these counties luivo paid
to the cities, towns and villages within
these eouutius taxes which have been
collected through the oillces of tho
county treasurers to the amount of
l,'Ji)iI,(iS'J.7!. Out or this amount, the
road and bridge maintenance of the
ulviPsiib-divisioiis represented by the
municipal government has been sup
ported. The records In the Auditor's otllce
do nof. show what portion of the latter
amount has been expedited directly for
road purposes. Tho relatively large
amount of money expended for road
purposes as reveHled by these figures
supports the contention of those who
say that Nebraska now spends enough
money to insure good roads under
proper administration. This statisti
cal investigation is of peculiar interest
in view of the organized effort to fee
cure h state highway commission at
this session of the legislature, and the
figures will doubtless be used freely
by both the friends aud oppoueuts of
Corn Improvers' Banquet
The Corn Improvers' lianquet has

what was originally a thick, heavy bar
of gold litis been rolled Into n thin
gold ribbon about three feet In length

stamps out of it pen shapes, till still

then tho shapes go to a slitting ma

From this slitting machine tho pens

Remark of Governor of North Caro
" ''Una to Qovernor of South Caro
Una Brought Into Court.'
. The oft-quoted remark of the Gov
ernor of North Carolina' to the Got
enorof South Carolina has at last
been 'brought Into court, carefully
ODHBtmtMl, and found not to bo so
long as some other times. It Is prob
able that It was tho exceeding
droughtlness of the interval which
made it seem long. In a prosecution
for the Illegal sale of whisky In Ala
bama, a witness testified that he had
bought a pint of liquor of the ac
cused "a short time" before tho grand
Jury returned the indictment against
him. It was objected that this evi
dence did notshow that the prose
cotton had been begun within 12
months after the sale of the whisky,
tho time limited by statute for begin
ning a prosecution. In discussing
this objection, the Supreme court, In
Wilson versus Stnte, 56 Southern
Reporter, 114, after holding that "a
short time" might bo taken in the con
nection In which It was used to re
fer to a period less than 12 months,
said, by way of Illustration: The
expression 'a long time' would refer
to a very different period of duration
and have a widely different meaning
In' measuring time when used by an
artfcaeologist having reference to the
period of existence of the Egyptian
pyramids, than when used by Caro
lina Governors with reference to the
time between drinks." The court
may be right, but probably the Gov
ernor of North Carolina measured
time as recommended by the poet
who said: "We live In feelings,
not In figures on the dial." Colliers'.

Old Mr. Egyptian carried a stick or
a small club about the house with him
and laid It upon his women like a
thousand of brick whenever they dis
obeyed or displeased him. In the
graves the mummies show that nearly
every woman bad a forearm fracture.
When Mr. Egyptian came home in a
bad humor he would sail into her with
a stiff stick, and as tho arm was
thrown to protect the face It was gen

"Dear talk" was always considered
"good medicine" by the Indians. If
a bear blocked tholr path, they ad-
droBBed him politely, reminding him'
of their common brotherhood, prais
ing his nobility and requesting him
kindly to allow them an, unmolested
passage. This, It is said, he frequent
ly did, for, being by nature inoffensive,
the soft accents did not disturb him,
and so he would go on his way.

Woman's 8ense of Honor.
Much has been done by our own
higher education and widening field
of work, and a woman now despises
what used to be by repute her most
formidable weapons a lie, tears and
a skillful appeal to the vanity of man.
The writer has often noticed the
markedly greater breadth of view and
the truer sense of honor among the
present-day girl students compared
with that which obtained when she
herself was a student, and which is
still largely that of women of her
own age today. An even moro strik
ing fact is that the majority of men
do not seem to expect as keen a sense
of honor from women as they do from
themselves. Thl3 mental atmosphere
has surely a deterrent effect upon tho
growth of thut eon so. A Woman
