When Entries Can be eade and Other
so acts of Interest in the Premises. - Judge Tattan says that aqpq Iar 1 10th, although it may be a tew days later, all the preliminary steps will have been k,nd will rea t coiVe fpdlo r the y the unti to the . hI that time, in accordance with the law on the subject, the probate judge will pub lish in both Benton papers a notice ofi the entry of the land in the local land 1 office, "requiring every claimant or claimants of any town lot or lots to file in the office of the probate jud4e a state ment of his or their claims within two months from date of the first publication of such notice." Application for lots may be made im mediately after the firbt publication of this notice in all the papers published in the town, but not before, and any time within two months after said first publi cation. Proof of such cai.m nAst be; made within the six months from and after the expiration of the notice men tioned. , In ca- there is a contest; thtqttest dol will be adjudicated by thegre.at·eig who is entitled to the same fees as are allowed by law in civil cases in justices' courts. The aggrieved party has the right to an appeal to the district court. Every, f f Be.ti ., ho pre-s l* Itn the fA tians the right eAter twotd sda aas i lots additional as he has improvements on to the amount of $250, and Judge Taftan holds that married wdmen have the same rights. The plat of the addition will be ex posed to the public gaze two or three days before publication is made, so that parties who want to invest-in real estate, will have an opportunity to pick their lots. They cannot file upon them, how ever, until publication of the notice. The probate judge will reserve ten acres for school purposes, and we believe the number of boo.ks required will be seleoted by lot or hazawrd, which, itseenms to us, is not just the proper way to select a site of a school house, which should be centrally located. After the expiration of the two months given for filini; upon lots, the residue in the posses.,ion of the probate judge, and not taken, .will, after ten days notice, be put up at 'public 'auction, but cannot be sold at a less sum than the ten dollars, fixed by law. The ten dollars to be paid for each lot goes to the school fund, and in the ag gregate "it will constitute quite , nice starter for the new and handsome pabool building to be ercted in Benton next season. The probate judge's fee in each case is four dillars for hearing proof and making the deed, and the recorder will afterwards come in for a recording fee of about two dollars and a half, rendering it, in printer's parlanoe, a pretty fat take for the officers. Even the treasurer comnes in for a small slice, as he' get his per cent. on the increased funds in his possession. Nominations.
