Rlddell was the attorney in the case.

In ths Insane man's sffalra they moved
for the appointment of m guardian, -and
it chanced that Mr. North came Into

His acceptance of the trust was purely
from a" deslreT(T'eervo one who was

Mr. Nash dwelt oh the point that

value,, and will get much higher In the
next Ave or ten 'years. He cited , the
French-Qlenn ranch of 140,000 acrea in

federation's development plane.. Thla
estate includea 'large area a Tf 'lands
adapted to the production of augat
beets, wheat, general agriculture, stock

a Marlon dredge Is at work In a large

the richest al.uvlal aoll Is to ba drained
and placed under cultivation, and the
water concentrated In a atream for lr-

ba drained contains several thousand
acres, and will ba planted In augar beets

It la estimated that tha land for which
