The government will dispose of about 30,000 acres, or 633 farm units, of from 40 to 80 acres each under the Huntley reclamation project by lottery on dune 26. Any person wishing to participate in the drawing should write the "Register and Receiver of Billiugs land office," for the necessary affidavit blanks and instructions. The land is rich and well watered and will be subject to homestead entry by those holding the winning numbers after June 26. Only bona tide settlers may hope to secure the land. The government has fixed the price at 84 per acre plus $30 dollars for building the irri gating canal and the usual land effie fees amounting to about $3» per acre in all - payable in installments. A reader of tin* New York Evening Post, writing io that paper, says: "In answer to a request of the Mary land legislature, th 't he should he a candidate for a third term, Jefferson said: Tf some termination to the services of (ho chief magistrate be not fixed by the constitution, or sup plied by practice, his oilice normally four years, will in fact become for life, and history shows how easily that degenerates into an inheritance. 1 feel it a duty to do no act which shall essentially impair that prin ciple; ami 1 should unwillingly b the person who, disregarding the sound precedent set by an illustrious predecessor, should furnish the first attempt of prolongation beyond the second term of office.' '' THE "AVERAGE MAN." Tim average man lives and dies comparatively poor. He has not the faculty for accumulating money; you could not pass laws enough to make him rich financially. The excep tional man is made to make money; money seems to stick to lus lingers, and you could not keep him poor.

Come and see what we have in this line before buying a Kodak ROBERTS Book Store The life-history of the man who has lived an unsulled life and died poor is one of uneventfulness. He is gen et ally generous-hearted, and never aspires to enrich himself. All he asks is a decent living, worthily earned— -a roof-tree and food and clothing for his family. Out of his modest earnings, he will probably save enough to pay for his modest home—seldom more. He gives his children a common school education and starts them out into the world with a "God bless you" for their dower. He is honorable in his deal ings; he pays his debts; he works hard and spends little for luxuries. He seldom complains of his lot, and never knowingly commits a crime against the state or humanity. He loves much, and laughs more. He inriy put by a few dollars for his old age, but oftener not. When he dies, men say of him "He was an honest man and a good citizen. We shall miss him." There is nothing start ling in the story; nothing in it to exploit ; just the story of au average man—one of the salts ©f the earth. We all know or kuew him and his kind. He has lived according to his light, and his being has served its purpose. No man is ever a failure who has left behind him the influence of usefullness and strong integrity.— Ex. in a the be for b the the dies the you THE SLEEP NO SICKNESS. Almost as mysterious and quite as fatal as the spotted fever, which has puzzled so many of the leading physicians of this country, is the "sleeping sickness" epidemic in cer tain portions of South Africa A special expedition to iuvest gate the ravages and treatment of this fatal disease sailed the other day from England for Africa, under the direction of Dr. Allan Kinghorn, the the cost being defrayed in part by the government and in part by the British South Africa company. As the woodtick is said to inoc ulale the virus of the spotted fever and the mosquito that of the dreaded "yellow jack," so it is believed that the African malady is transmitted by a variety of the tsetse-ffy, one species of which has wrought such havoc among livestock in South Africa. But, unluckily, knowledge of the cause has not thus far provided a cure, and the coming of the white man has spread the disease into new regions with the increase in severity usually noted in such circumstances. It, was formerly thought that white men were exempt, but this proved a delusion, several of those infected having been taken fatally ill after returning to Europe. This is one of the cases in which man has disar ranged the adjustments of nature with disastrous consequences.—Butte Evening News. us c Small Block of Sundown Sale.

Automobiles, in addition to becom ing almost as deadly as trulley cars are ruining the roads of the country says a Washington special dispatch to the New York World. It is the best roads and those on which the most money has been spent that are being ruined, as it only is on these that the automobilists go. The problem is a serious one, and Logan W. Page, director of public roads of the department of agriculture, is making an investigation of the sub ject. The roadmaking experts of his bureau are experimenting with all sorts of material in the hope of finding something that will prevent tiie roads from "raveling." Director l'age in discussing this prob lem before the committee on expendi tures in the department of agriculture made this significant statement: "One of the most difficult problems which road builders have to meet now Is due to the greatly increased automo bile traffic. It is affecting most tiie states that have spent the largest sums of money on their roads, because they have the greatest number of automo biles on them. With au ideally con structed stone road the qualities of the rock should be so adjusted to the traf fic to which it is subjected that just enough line dust is worn off to cement the larger fragments together. "The automobile does not wear off nuy tine dust. The wind and rain are taking away tiie original binder and that derived from the iron tired ve hicles that go over it. The automobile loosens the surface of tiie road. "These heavy machines going at high speed create a vacuum behind them which sucks up the dust and throws it in tiie air and loosens the roadbed, and it soon 'ravels,' as the road builder calls it—gets loose and goes to pieces. It is the most expensive roads that are thus affected." The bureau has decided that if tiiese macadam or stone roads are to be per manent the surface must lie treated witii some material that will keep tiie dust down and preserve it as a cement to bind the road. Experiments have been made with oils which have an as phaltum basis, and it has been found that with an nsphaltum base of 30 per cent anti over they help some. Crude tar and other materials have been used, but nothing quite satisfactory has yet been found. cial for tiie t he tile of sta due 26, per for and the tiie for in (SO) lie Illinois Farmers For Better Roadways. A movement is on foot among the farmers of southern Illinois to this year begin the building of hard rock roads, something after the style of highway adamantizing used in parts of Kentucky and Tennessee, says a special dispatch from Caruii, 111., to the St. Louis Globe-Democrat. Under a state provision made feasible by the hard roads commission the penal insti tutions of the state are required to furnish rock to all township commis sioners who apply. By having the con victs crush the rock, which abounds in many parts of the state, the hard roads commission hopes to facilitate and hasten the improvement of the highways of the state, particularly hi southern Illinois.
