P. Brown, Miss Edna F. to Mr. David White Swickard of Cheyenne Wells, Colorado. 11 was a home wedding the guests being kindred and intimates of the bride and her parents. The floral decorations were largely of the various spring blossoms, with bunches of beautiful flowers tastefully placed and m great profusion. The bride was be comingly gowned in white, so dainty and faultless for the hap py event. The bridegroom was proud and smiling in the con ventional garb of black. The re freshments were varied and sumptuous, all cake was not only wedding cake but bride’s cake. Their excellence was a fine com pliment to her skill. Both the bride and groom own farms in Colorado, but Clark coun ty looks so good to them that they will make this their perma nent home. The bride is t h e | daughter of one of the old and honored families of our country and a lady of the best womanly type. The fortunate groom is a young man of an excellent rep utation and good business ability. Wecanconfidently predict for her a prosperous and happy future and a host of friends will follow them with good wishes. Rev. W. F. Laidley was the officiating clergyman.—Clark County (Mo.) Courier. I More Water Not More Land. The time to think about putting in a pumping plant to provide for a water supply next summer when the whole country is burning up is right now and suppose we sit down and discuss the matter a little among ourselves: “A pumping plant large enougli to ir rigate twenty acres will add the equiv alent of a whole section in the dry coun try where the short grass has to do its part in maintaining the family. Any irrigation dich system which will water a whole quarter section of alfalfa is as good as the permanent acquisition of eigiit sections of range. In other words, a section of alfalfa is equival ent to 20,000 acres of range as a source of food supply for stock. The figures are worth studying. They show that a great many of our livestock men are worrying about more range and schem ing and planing to get more land when they would find it easier aud more profitable to cultivate some of the land they have already and get far greater returns from it. All they have to do in this connection is to buy a good husky pump, throw up a reservoir and go to it. Sitting around the stove all winter will not irrigate the dry ground next summer Trans Missouri Farmer and Ranchman. PROSPECT HILL.
