Many Tracts Still Open to Homestead Entry in Various Parts of Uncle Sam's Domain. It is estimated that not less than fifty thousand heads of families, most of them successful farmers, ex patriated themselves in 190!) and took up homes under the British flag, says the Exchange. All of them had money, probably none had less than $1000, so that at least $00,000,000 of good American coin was taken from this country and in vested in Canadian property. The lure of (heap land is strong and as long as the Canadian northwest of fers Its virgin prairies to homeseek ers at low prices, the rush of set tlers Is likely to continue. Land values, however, have steadily risen, and with the passing of Canadian lands selling at $:: to $15 per acre, it Is probable that the opportunities for homemakers in our own west may prove sufficiently attractive to stein the northwest tide. A complaint often made by home seekers is that there is lack of in formation concerning the available public domain in the several west ern states. Our remaining public lands exclusive of Alaska and our Island possessions, consist of about 370,000,000 acres. Much of this Is mountainous and a good deal of It Is arid and worthless without irrigation. There are, however, several millions of acres of semi-arid land open to settlers in tracts of 320 acres each, located where new methods of culti vation and scientific planting have to overcome the deficient rainfall. These are being rapidly taken up. The completion of successive • its on a number of the large irrigation works of the government is mak ing available choice farms In several states. To meet the demand for in formation concerning these lands, the reclamation service has issued descriptive pamphlets which are mailed upon request by the Statis tician, U. S. Reclamation Service, Washington, D. C. At the present time excellent opportunities exist on a number of projects. The number and size of farms open to entry, cost of water-right, and the cash payment required are given herewith: On the Belle Fourcho project, South Dakota, there are sixty farms containing from forty to eighty acres each. The water-right charge Is only $30 per acre, and the first payment required In advance is $3.50 per acre, the balance being payable in nine annual Installments without In terest. The Huntley project, Montana, offers to homestead entry 224 farms, averaging forty acres each of Irrig able land. The cost of water-right Is $30 per acre, in addition to which $4 per acre must be paid for the land. The initial payment is $6.40 per acre, the balance being payable in nine equal annual install ments without Interest. The Shoshone project, Wyoming, has available 257 farms avj'i .ug forty to eighty acres each of Irrigable land; water-right charge, $40 per acre, payable one-tenth down, bal ance In nine equal annual install ments. Sun River project, Montana: Eighty-five farms vacant, averaging eighty acres each of irrigable land, water-right charge $30 per acre, maintenance and operation, 50 cents per acre; first payment $3.50, bal ance In nine equal annual install meats without Interest. Umatilla project, Oregon: Seventy farms not yet taken, averaging twen ty to forty acres each of irrigable land: water right charge $60 per acre, maintenance and operation, $1.30 per acre. First payment, $19.30 per acre; balance In seven equal annual installments without interest. The above farms are located in settled agricultural districts. Neigh bors are plentiful, transportation facilities are good, towns are near with stores, schools and churches. On several of these projects, eight farm houses are located along each mile of the main highways, giving the country more of a suburban than a rural appearance. On all of these projects, the crops last year were satisfactory. The fruit farmer, stock man, general farmer and truck grower will find what he Is looking for one one or more of these projects. No more capital Is required to make a success on one of these farms than than on a wheat farm In Canada, and there Is the additional advantage of a much better climate. Good Stories. "A little nonsense now and then Is relished by the best of men." It is told of an English professor that he onco wrote on tho blackboard in his laboratory: "Professor Atherton is pleased to Inform his students that he has this day been appointed honorary physi cian to her Majesty, the Queen." In the course of the morning he had occasion to leave the room, and found on his return that some stu dent had considerately added to the announcement these words: "God save the Queen!" —Llpplncott's Mag apine. A story Is told of an Englishman who had occasion for a doctor while staying In Peking: "Sing Loo, gleatest doctor," said his servant; -"he savee my life once." "Really?" queried the English man. "Yes; me tellible awful," was the reply; "me calico ln doctor. He gives me medicine; me velly, velly bad. Me callee in another doctor. He come and give me more medicine, make me velly, velly badder. Me callee in Sing Loo. Ho no come. He savee my life." — Birmingham (Eng land ) Post. Representative Lungworth. son-in law of Theodore Roosevelt, stands sponsor for this story which al though a bit old, Is yet good. An old negro was stopped on the street on election day by a white man who asked him if he had voted. "Yas, 'ndeed, Iso voted," replied the ne gro. "Did you get anything for your vote?" "Oh, yas, suh. I got paid fob niah vote." "What did you get?" publicans come to me and dey says "Well, sub. it was talk dls. De re dey give me 'leven dollars if me and mail three boys vote de republican ticket, an' I took de money; an' do democrats come to me an' dey says dey give me seven dollars fob niah vote and mah boys' votes, an' I took de money." "You took money from both sides. Then which ticket did you vote?" "Oh, I voted de demo cratic ticket." "Why so?" The repub licans gave you the most money." "1 voted for de democrats fob jes' dat reason — dey wasn't as corrupt as de republicans." Rufe Johnson was heard telling this story: "Yessur, it sure was ah ghost, and I run some. Do fust mile I made In nuffen, den I burnt the wind for two or free more, and den I sit down on a rail fence to rest, and when I'd 'bout cot my breff 1 looked over my shoulder and dere was dat ghost agin, an' it said: " 'We sure did run, Rufe, didn't we?' "And den I say: 'Yes, Mr. Ghost, we sure did, but we didn't run nuf fen to what we's gwine to run." Senator Taylor of Tennessee said the finest example he knew of the antebellum negro's use of the Eng lish language was the remark made by an old negro whose worthless son was married secretly. The old man heard of It, and asked the boy If he was married. "I ain't saying I ain't," tho boy replied. "Now, you, "Rastus," stormed the old man, "I ain't askin' you is you ain't; I is askin' you ain't you is:" The Interior Warehouse Company, a Balfour-Guthrie connection, Is con templating establishing a $25,000 feedmill and grain-cleaning plant In Lewiston, Idaho. Investigating Conditions. At the last convention of the Farmers' Union, of Whitman county, Y. C. Mansfield, R. C. McCroskey and L. C. Crow were appointed as a committee to visit the boor farm at Elberton,. Investigate conditions and report as to the advisability of re moving the farm. They visited the farm and their findings are em bodied in the following protest which was filed with the county com missioners by Y. c. Mansfield: To the Commissioners of Whitman County, Washington. Gentlemen —We, the undersigned committee, appointed by the county Farmers Union, March 20, 1910, to visit the county poor farm, examine into the question of moving the same to Colfax, and report to your hon orable body the result of our Investi gations, beg leave to say that one of our number who was opposed to such action by the county union wrote to Commissioner Ellis Inform ing him of the time our committee would visit Elberton, and requested that he meet us there. This action afterwards met the hearty approba tion of the two other members, we I all desiring to get the view point of the commissioners directly from one' of their members. Mr. Ellis, for some cause, did not meet us, which we all regretted. We, therefore, base our conclusions on the Information gath ered on the farm and from other sources; and also from a communi cation published In the Commoner, Juno 11, 1909, by J. R. Rupley, your chairman, setting forth, as wo as sume, the attitude of the board. We desire, reluctantly, to state that we believe your honorable body is mak ing a mistake In taking the stops you have, leading up to tho change of location of the "Poor Farm." This opinion wo are encouraged to ex press by the statement of one of our committee, Mr. Mansfield, that Mr. Ellis said to him that the commis sioners would be pleased to have a committee of the Farmers Union in vestigate the matter and report to your honorable body, as the contem plated change had not gone too far to bo dropped. We find that there Is oven more tillable land on the Elberton farm than is necessary for the require ments of the infirmary, that there is abundance of fruit, a pretty good water system, abundance of room in the building, some slight changes, the building, some slight changes the drainage Is first-class, and that the sanitary conditions are very good and are capable of being made per fect at little cost. We find that the average number of Inmates for 1909 was a small frac tion over twelve, and that tbe aver age ago of these now in the infirm ary is 73 years, not. counting a pa ralytic and one of feeble mind. We submit that from people of thai age and condition very little labor could reasonably be expected. Therefore, we believe It wi. be inexpedient and expensive to the county to raise more on the poor farm than is necessary to supply the table with meat, vege tables, fruit and dairy products, The building will undoubtedly meet the requirements of Whitman county for many years to come. As to the hospital, one can be built on the Elberton farm as cheap as at any other place In the county, and inasmuch as the lnflrmacy Is quite close to tbe depot It Is believed by those who have given very close at tention to the problem, that patients can be transferred from any point in the county, not excepting Colfax, to the Elberton poor farm cheaper than they can be to tho contemplated farm near Colfax. Now in view of the constantly in creasing burden of taxation, and In view of the fact that recent disasters from floods will add to the burden and also in view of the fact that we believe each and every member of your honorable body is governed by ! disinterested and patriotic motives in your action in this matter, we, tho undersigned committee, would most respectfully and deferentially request that you do not make the contem plated change; or at least that you defer action In the matter so as to give those we represent and who pay A R RAKFR * EMM til Ul UnIVL 1 PULLMAN, WASH.
