The Acting Commissioner of the General Lead office has atUreseed the following circular to Begistere and Beceivers: Beferr og to circular of April lth 1879, under act of March 3d, 1879, requiring pub lished notice of intention to make final proof in Homestead ard Pre-emption canes, yea are now instructed to require claimants in all cases hereafter to specify in form No. 1 the day and dste on which they will appear with wilnersea for the purpose of making proof, and in Homestead east they most giro the official name and residence of the officer before whom the proof is to be made. Yon will also request each claimant to name POUB of his neighbors who may be able to testify aa to hi compliance with the law, any two of whom will be competent witnesses when proof is made. Such a course will prerent much incooTenienee and delay. The DceUSce address of the witnesses shoold be given in all casts. Jt is not sufficient to give the county only. Yoa will see that the foregoing requirement are incorporated In Form No. 2, (Noiice for Publication) so that such notices will hereafer be substanitally in the following form, t!i: "Notice is hereby given that the following named settler has filed noiice of bis intention to make final proaf in support of his claim and secure final entry thereon, aid that said proof will be made before the clerk of the court or Beed county, at the county seat, on Thursday, the22d day of April, 18S0, viz: John Doe, Homestead entry, ro. 2iS4, forN.

Register. The object of the law requirirg eochTio tice is to give to parties having adverse claims or filing, rr to those having knowl edge that the claimant ha not complied with the requirements of the statutes, full notice of the time srd place cf presenting proof in order tbat opportunity may be given them to Iw heard prior to the perfection of an entry. Thb New York Evening Post is the au tborilv for the statement that "the present activity in real-estate circles is so great that experienced dealer do not hesitate to declare that it has never before been f qoaled. Gcod judges assert that since last October there has been an average general increase of 30 per cent in the value of city property. The healthy character of this revival in real estate is shown by the fact that in most recent transfer the whole price has been pud in cash, and that second mortgage have ic corae practically obsolete." Many little farm well tilled, with many industrious, sober farmers to till them, con stitute th highest d-gree of agricultural prosperity. The greater number of persons who own land in any community, the more interest will they lake in its toiprotement. People who rent land as a rule care noth ing for the soil they work, further thin what it will yield tbem; but a tnsn who owns land wants to see it-s fertility and pro ductive capacity kept up, not alone fcr his own, but for his children's benefit, who will inherit it after him.

From all accoon a there will be a lire imm'g-atioa to Western Kansas the coming spring and summer. Dodo i CRT is remarkably 'unlet a greihr degree of stillnets than heretofore know at th s season of the year. Mr. John B.

In two days five hundred Union soldiers io St. Louis signed a protest rgainit the passage of the inflation measure known as "ihe Weaver hill" Congressman (.lardy writee that "There i ro probability thit the bill will bs passed, or even be seriously considered." One of the men whose misfortune it was to be impaneled on the jury before which the Tilton-Beecher case was tried was a grocer, doing a small business in the city ol Brook' lyn. During his enforced absence at the courr, which extended over several months the grocery business went to rack and ruin, The amount paid in witness fee proved quite an inadequate compensation for the loss involved, and after struggling for some time against the inevitable, the grocer gave it up, and thankfully accepted a position aa night watchman. The pay to be received was small, the family to be supported wss luge, snd the man bas just died in extreme poverty. The story la as pitiful a it is pe culiar. The coal-miners' strike is getting to be a serious affair in Pennsylvania, and a coal famine la imminent. It extends all thrcutb th region of th Moooaahela and Mahon ing Valleys, and along the line of the Pan Handl. Baltimore ;Obio, and Penstyl vinia Railroads, and is felt to be particularly severe in Pittsburg and vicinity. A few weeks ago there were millions of bushels of coal in tbat city awaiting shipment, but now it is so scarce that price hav advanced from 10 to 14 cen's a bush. The iron mills that are crowd-d with orders, and hav been running night and day, will soon be obliged to suspend operatior son acrount nt the lack of fuel. Borne of the mill art closed already. Oveb 20O,f 00 carloads of live and dress ed poultry are carried in'o New York city yearly, and 25,000,000 dczn of gg to Ihe same market. According to beet estimates tbe Uuited States produce 9,000,000.000 of eggs annually. It is hot down in in New Mexico. The Las Vess Optic ray, locomotive) in New Mexico don't wesr enow plows, and the train boys peddle ice water all the year round. Youbo s ock fattens much more readily than old stock.

F. R. B., asking for a similar donation to the one given ty Jsy Gould on behalf of of the K. P. road, for the benefit of tbe suf ferers on that road. Bob would like to dis burse 55,000, and probably the sickly News would receive a share o' the donation. O, conscience, what cheek ram people have!

Laboe farming in Csliornia and lb West ha proved precariou boineaf. THE opinion of Old settlers is that th cjmirg season will be a wet one. In March there will likely be wet snow storms, fal lowed by copious rains during the summer months. The opinion is based upon prece dent. A mild dry winter is followed by a wet spring and summer. In fad, taking preceding season as example, it is stated that the rammer will be unusually rainy. This opinion is given by tbos who hav resided on ihe plains for twenty year pearl. The Boston Transcript say th ris in Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe stocks hat been regarded by many a rinprecedented in lb history of tbe Boston stock market, and therefore, unwarranted.
