RANCH, STOCK, MINES. The small cattlemen of Nebraska are organized to fight the land leasing prop- osition when it comes before the cattle- men's convention in Chicago next month. They claim that the interests which are behind the measure are the largo cattle and sheep raisers. During the past week much progress has been made on the general planof en- tertainment and care of the hosts who are going to Chicago to attend the Inter- national Live Stock expositiou and the fifth annual convention of the National Live Stock association. Several thou's- and animals will be on exhibition dur- ing the expositiou. The splendid new building is capable of housing to the best advantage these finest specimens of cat- tle without crowding. It is calculated 100,000 visitors will be there. Some of the fruit and farm papers are discussing fall setting of plants and trees but the advice is very inapplicable to our Colorado conditions. Thirty years will cover the practical fruit his- tory of Colorado and among those who have experimented the longest, fall set- ting is not advised for any trees, nor for smaller fruits. The best results have boon attained with trees procured in the fall before heavy freezing occurs and carefully heeled in. Another important operation is fitting the ground as thor- oughly aa possible in fall so as to be ready for spring setting when thoground is ready to work. It is the winter drouth in Colorado that proves disastrous to fall set plants.--Field and Farm. Within five years ever farmer will have mail delivered at his door.

McKinley, the Denver lawyer who was severely injured by a street car a short time ago, is recovering. The state is threatened with a car famine, a number of coal mines being already closed down on account of the shortage. U. S. District Attorney Cranston will defend the Indiano charged with unlaw- fully taking $600 worth of deer hides out l of the state. About 25,000 head of horses and mules have been purchased in the United States by Great Britain for her army since October, 1900. All signs indicate that there will be much suffering among the working class- es in Germany this winter; there are al- ready thousands of unemployed. Reports from Senior county, Utah, state that damage to property in that county from Wednesday night's earth- quake will amount to almost $100,000. The new Hay.Pauncefote treaty was signed Monday by Secretary ftay for the United States, and Lord Pauncoforte,tho British ambassador, for Great Britain. Ez-Senat(>r E. O.

In the fifth round of what was to have plioations and they are going in by the hundrsda from all parts of the country. Itwill take from a year to a year and ~a half to dispose of these and in the mean- time others will undoubtely accumulate. The department will be compelled to ask for a much larger appropriation from congress than was granted for the pros- ant fiscal year. C. J. Lenander of Iowa will soon en- gage in the business of crossing the buf- falo with Galloway cattle. He has re- cently purchased two buffalo bulls from Lincoln park in Chicago and now has them at his home in Iowa. He also has contracted for three buffalo cows in Kansas. A herd of pure bred Galloways is to be imported and it is Lsnandor's intention to raise full blooded buffalo and at the same time to cross them with Galloway cattle. The buffalo are to be i raised for the heads and hides which have come to be very valuable, as well as for the meat. The cross with the Gallo- way cattle produces a fine fur, even finer than that of the pure buffalo. The ani- mals breed rapidly and it will not take long to build up a herd if the bison do not all die off within a year or so, as is quite likely to be the case in captivity.- Field and Farm. The number of cottonwood trees that have been planted in Colorado these yeari. is surprising, especially when their small value as a" durable and effective wind break is considered. There is, of] course, a general desire to get something that @illmakofast growth and form a ' tree as f~st as possible and we all have to.acknowledge that there is nothing that will do it faster than the cotton- Wood. Perhaps it is all right to start with such a weed of a tree and place it _ far enough from the premises that there will bo ro0m for a good and durable growth of ash, elm ~nd basswood be- tween them and the yards and buildings to be sheltered. Wherever the cotton. wood is planted it is a robber and it is useless in a dry climate to think of try- ing to start a grove or fruit plantation anywhere near a row of them after they have become established.--Fiold and Farm. "The State Arid Land Grant Commis- siou of Montana," sa~a the Price Curreut "which was created by the legislature with power to reclaim lands donated to the state by the general government un- der the Carey Act, has celebrated the opening of the great canal system in dis- trict No. 4. The canal intended to irri gate 33,000 acres of the Carey land, was opened and water sent on its missmn of making homes for the small farmers, "The state promised to sell this land in tracts of 160 acres to actual settlers at only the cost of placing water upon the land, giving ten years for payment, in ten equal payments at six per cent inter- st. 11,0~0 acres are now ready for set- tlement, the state is building the canal lyetem and will own and operate it in perpetuity for the sole benefit of the oc- cupants of the land and without profit to any one~ making the enterprise entire- ly co-operative in its nature. This is the first irrigating canal on the American continent to be built and operated by a state government and undoubtedly marks an epoch in irrigating progress. It is to be hoped that this plan of bringing arid l lands under irrigation and disposing of them to actual settlers will be so suc- ceuful that there will be an end to ef- forts to get aid from the federal govern- me/It," been a 20-round struggle Ruhlin wilted and surrendered to his peer to the utter amazement and disgust of the assembled thousands. Arapahos county commissioners who were cited to appear before Judge John- sou for contempt of court in refusing to furnish him a court room have demanded a trial by jury.

A snowstorm Thursday night in central and northern New York approached the dimensions of a blizzard. Many roads are blocked and huge drifts are piling it along the fences. In Syracuse sleighs are running iu the down-town streets. In one of the most unsatisfactory prize fights ever witnessed in the country, in San Francisco last Friday night, James J. Jeffries proved the victor over Gas Ruhlin and thus emphasized his right to the heavy-weight championship title. In the experiments in electric traction on the Prussian military lines a speed of 99/1,/z miles an hour has been attained, the force employed being 10,000 volts.

Ketchum, owner of Cresceua the champion trotter of the world, drove his horse a mile in 2 minutes and 8 sec- onds, lowering the track record made by Kentucky Union, of 2:11~, three seconds and a quarter. The Isthmian canal commission has completed its report and it will be pre- sented to President Roosevelt at once for transmission by him to congress. The commission is unanimous in its conclu- sions. It favors the adoption of the Nic- araguan route as the most feasible and most practicable for an Isthmian canal to be "under the centre], management and ownership of the United ~tatee." Pension Recommendations. In his annual report the commissioner of pensions discusses at length the faults of the present system and the difficulties in the way of determining the merits of claims for pension and increase. In January, 1900, a rule was adopted requiring guardians of pensioners to ren- der to the bureau annual accounts of their receipts and expenditures of pen- sion money. The rule was followed by disclosures which in some instances were startling. Guardians were found to be drawing penni(Joe long after the death of their wards." Many cases were fount where insane pensioners had been placed in asylut~s a~d[othor public institutions as indi~e~a~Jp0i~snns, while the guardians had d~A-~n the pension during the whole pevidfl, and either diverted it for other purposes or allowed it to accumulate for the benefit of thepensioner's legal repre- sentatiw, s. The report presents a number of inter- estin~ features connected with the filing of claims for pension on account oT the war wlti~ Spain and the insurrection in thePhiiippiues. It is shown that the soldiers of these wars enjoy much greater benefits than were accorded to the sol- diers el' the civil war, in the amount of pension:~ granted for the same degree of disability. Three years after the close of the Spanish war, claims for pensions amountiugtoab, ut20 per cent of the soldmrs engaged ]n that war had been filed, wi)ile in lS72, seven )ears after the close of the civil war, only about 6 per cent of the soldiers engaged in that war had filed claims. Tl~e commissmner calls attention to the unsatlsfaetory conditions attending the legal and medical adjudicaqou of claims for pensions. Cases are usually settled onexpsrto evidence prepared and sub- mitted by attorneys whoso foe is depend- ent upon the allowancoof theclaim. The medical examinati(ms u*hich dotermin~ the rate of pensions in valid claims are made by surgeons who are the neighbor- hood practitioners, whoso appointment are usually rewards for political services and who are subject to local influences that bias their jud~nmnt. As a remedy for these abuses, he recommends that traveling medical examining boards be constituted, consisting of two skilled medical examiners, one attorney and one stenographer and typewriter. Pueblo is fearful of a coal famine on account of the strike among the swith- men at that point, the electric lighting company has had to close down at mid- night and tho morning newspapers are compelled to go to press before that hour. It is said that unless some arrangements can be made soon by means of which the Denver & Rio Grande can handle its freight business the three smelters and the Colorado Fuel & Iron {ompany will be compelled lo closed down. These compames have a limited supply of coal ou hand and there is no relief in sight. THE HOME GOLD CURE. An Ingenious Treatm-~nt by which Drunk ards are lielng Cured Daily in Spite of Tllemselves.
