Its main features are as follows: I would Bay ol artesian -wells, that. In my opinion, they promise to be one of the smallest factors in the Irrigation problem in Kansas. The history of artesian wells shows that, as a rule, the cost of so obtaining water for irrigation is greater than the value ot all the land it will irrigate. The reason for this is threefold. In the first place the average vosi or sucn wells is large, even when only the successful measure is considered. '. Secondly, counting the cost of "dry holes," Which It would be necessary to...

The victory of the farmers alliance in Kansas is an event of tar-reaching im portance. Kansas has been to the re publican party what South Carolina has been to the democatlc.

That the farmers alliance can never De a permanent uauorai party is cer tain. That the democratic party is in no danger of disruption in 1892 is equally certain. The alliance has entered politics with sufficient strengh to force a realignment of the states, and that it will succeed in this is hard ly doubtful. Its advent has alarmed the northeast, and has exasperated the radical faction which now controls the republican party; but...

.HER VALENTINE. Y THE moss-grown wicket gate. Which she swings with timid hand And but half -in clined to wait. A pretty maiden stands; For who first shall cross her way, When the early .. sunbeams shine On this February day. She may choose as Valentine. So she lingers In the mist, While swift blushes come and go, Till the sun's warm lips hare kiss"! Into living gold the snow. Is It one of Cupid's laws, Or some sweet decree of Fate, That a manly step should pause Every morning by that gate? No I his duties In the town Call the lad who loves her well. Through the pastures bare and brown. From his homestead on the fell. You may shake wise heads and smile Yet the narrow path leads straight From the fields beyond the stile To the moss-grown wicket gate. Hush!

Sees how soft blue eyes can shine, When a maiden's own true love Is her cho...

A great deal of talk is to be heard , now-a-days concerning the effect the actions of the present legislature will have upon the financial interests of Kansas. Men can be found who will tell you that the proposed interest leg islation, railroad legislation, and the legislation talked of concerning the cur- tailing the public expenses both in the state and counties will result in irre parable injury to the state. In the first place, let us consider what possibility there is that such pro posed laws will be enacted. We have a lower house in the legislature of which the alliance or farmer element has the full control. The representatives are generally well informed, well educated and intelligent gentlemen, and being farmers are in a ...
