The trutlis or nature come into
view like tlio distant stars, filling
the night of the world with now
wonder and new light. Truth
springs like flowers on the fields
and hedgerows of life always
modest, always unobtrusive, al
ways gladsome. Give us dis
cernment to see it; give us
sense to welcome It; give us un
derstanding to know its worth,
and generosity to extend it to
those who know it not. George

isays It Is now the intention of the

This will abolish the perpetual Irri

at the threshold of Its highest stage
The Hie of the irrigation laws de

The laud leclalmed Is worth ten times'
the cost of Its reclamation. The
terms or payment are such that poor j
men can reach them, and the amount ,
of land sold to each individual Is
limited to the producing capability of
the land, so there is no possibility of
land giabbcrs coming Into possession
of it. 1
Don't pass a fiee home bill for the
arid states: the West wants to pay
for the land, so the price may be ap
plied to further developments by the
