STATE TAX COMMISSIOM.
MAY FORFEIT THEIR LANDS.
Washington, June to.—The purchas-
<<fH of lands tn the Otoe and Missouri
Indian reservation in Kantian an Ne-
braska will be expected to make tlnal
settlement of their ncuounts with the
government by July t. The tline,
under the law, expired a year a fo, but
,* year's grace was allowed so as to
bring the matter to h final close with-
out hardship. Some of the settlors
have recently been informed that they
could secure a further reduction in the
price to be paid for the lands bj giving
their cases into the hands of certain
uttorneys. It is understood that u n m-
rof settlers were almost coerced into
renting to join with others in an
>nipt to secure further concessions,
copy of a letter purporting to have
ien sent by an attorney named Van
rsdale, of Cheyenne, Wyo., to aettUrs
on the reservation, was transmitted
to Washington, and the department,
Immediately wired hiin to know if l o
had written such letters. lie replied
that he had not and could not under-
stand how his name was used; that he
had acted as attorney for the settlers
and had advised them that the time
time for final settlement would expire
on July 1, and that there would be no
further grace. It is evident that set-
tlers aro being misled, and it is pos-
sible that those who full Into the snare
will forfeit their lands.

Washington, Juno 20.—Tho ottlclals

reservation If the court decides in
favor of the government there will not
be a moment's delay in the opening on
account of the action of the protesting
Indians and their attorneys. If Judge
Springer takes an appeal, it is not
likely that that will delay matters, as
an appeal is a good way from an in-'

reservation will doubtless be thrown
open to settlement. Tho exact con'

A Much Hborter Trial.
El Dorado, ICans., Juno 20.—It will
not take half so long to '.fy the Jessie
Morrison murder caso the second time
aa It did the first. It took nearly
three weeks before. It will not take
much over a week this time. In tho
second trial, a vast amount of stuff of
Immaterial nature which was
jammed into the first case is being
eliminated. Only testimony of events
immediately surrounding the tragedy
is being taken this time. After taking
testimony and listening to lengthy
arguments, the court ruled that the
statement should be admitted as a
dying statement and that the scraps of
paper should also be introduced.

man refused to order tho exclusion of

cattlemen to remove all forces from

great hardship on the stockmen. They
are willing to louse those lunds but
there Is no law which authorize* It.
"Do, doctor," he Implored, earnestly;
I feel I shall never progress toward
recovery so long as you compel me to
remain In this room."
And where, may I ssk, do you

He had grown wonderfully fond of
his patient during the past few weeks,
and could not bear to deny him any-
thing but what was impossible.
"To the library." said Denall; "they

I promise you faithfully I will not try

and then my mother and Lady Caro-
line can say nothing. I want to go
"Well, well, we will see about It,"
answered the doctor.
This reply, Den*il knew, was equiv-
alent to a promise. And accordingly
the following day saw him Installed In

early spring flowers around him and
all the family at his beck and call.

presRntly. regarding her attentively.
"Yes." she answered, quietly; "or,
rather, he broke It. off with me."
"He!" repeated Denall, with amaze-
ment. "Then it was his doing—not
yours? How could that he?" Then,
jealously—"And you would perhaps

Miss Trevanlon, with faint hesitation;
and then the door opened and Mrs.

"Ah, Mildred, good child." t ried Mrs.
Younge, Innocently, "you have been

that he was alone all this time, pen-
cil, you are a spoiled boy from all the
attention you receive. I hope tho time
did not seem too long, Mildred, dear.
I meant to be back directly."
Miss Trevanlon blushed, and, diak-
Ing some pretty, graceful answer, es-
caped from the room, while Lady Car-
oline glanced covertly at Densll. who
appeared totally unconscious of any
undercurrent In the conversation, and
old Blount looked mischievous.
"Well." said he. when he had shaken
hands with Densll and wished him joy
tn his kind hearty way at having re-
covered his freedom. "I have just been
with Sir George, Lady Caroline, and
he tells me you aro determined to mar-
ry off all your family at once, like -

Lady Caroline, laughing. "One at

without any aolace tn our old age. But
you mean Charlie and Frances, I sup-

a proper understanding at laat I hear.
"I think they came to that before

"but the question of late has been

Old Dick laughed.
"She has 'been such a spoiled pet all
her life." he commented, "that I think
she will give Charlie something to do
to manage her."
"I agree with you," said Lady Caro-
line; "but she Is such a dear girl with
It all that one can not help loving
her and forgiving her the very trifling
faults she possesses." '
"And then true love la such a
smoother of all difficulties," put In
Mrs. Younge, softly, raising her eyes
from her knitting.
"It Is time for us to be thinking of
wedding presents," said Den*ll. "1

"Well, I hardly know," answered
her ladyship; "but I can easily find out

"And how about Mabel's affair?

line—"surely she can afford to wait;
and, besides, she must, as George has
decided nothing must be said about It
until Roy Is In a better posltidn."
"I have just been talking to Sir
George about that." said old Blount;
"and I think It a pity the young peo-
ple should be sighing for each other
when they might be together. I am
an old man now, with more money
than I know how to spend; so I have

Why should you deprive yourself of

"My dear creature," returned old
Blount, "I am not thinking of dolnx
anything of the kind. I am far too
selfish to deprive myself of any lux
urles to which I have been accustomed-.
But I literally can not get rid of tl|
money; so they may Juat aa well haV

"There never waa anybody Ilka yon

tn her eyes.
"Except Sir George." returned old
Blount, mischievously, at which they
"And atlll wn have Mildred to dla<

glance at Denall, who gnaad stolidly
out of the window.
"Dear, dear—will you leave m« no
daughter?" expoatulnted lady Caro-
line; and Mra. Younge, who had grown
very Intimate with them ill during
her aon'a tUneae,'looked up plaintive
i ly to ear:
"Thar# la realty to understanding

suited to her."
"And he seemed to me In every way

pulslvely and rather crossly.
"Did he Indeed, my dear?" said hla
mother, with mild surprise. "Well, eea
how differently people judge."
Differently, ludeed," coincided old
Blount. "And now tell ua, Denall,.
what sort of a person do you think
would make her happy?"
There was a sly laugh In the old
man's eyes aa he asked the question,
and Densll, looking up. caught It; ao
that presently he laughed too, though
rather against his will.
(To be continued.)
The location of the well on the farm
Is one of the greatest Importance. In
many Instances the farmer starta hla
well near the buildings and yarda, an
selects the lowest point aa a location,
with the idea that he will not hava
to dig as deep aB he would upon high-
er land. This Is often a mistake, aa
we know of aeveral places tn a village
where the wells near the top of the
hill are not as deep and are not aa
much affected by a drouth aa thoea on
the lower land at the foot of the hill,
though there may be fifty or a hun-
dred feet difference In this elevation
But the chief objection to the well on
the low ground is that It receives the
surface drainage from the higher land
and thus the water soon becomes ao

Bloui Women Hoasekeepers.
The Sioux woman does more work
than the man does. They live In log
cabins with only the ground tor the
floor, and they have but one room. In
that room they have their beds tn one
corner, their trunks around the sides,
and they often have beautiful bead-
work hanging oq the walls. They have
large stove bb near the center of the
room as they can. On that stove you
will always find a coffee pot and a
teakettle, and they are always kept
full. If the women can have coffee to
drink they are happy. They think It Is / $|g
great medicine. They call It the
black medicine. The women when at
home are almost always doing some
kind of beadwork, and they are alwaya
getting up gome .kind of a (east. That
Is, they have them very often, aud es-
pecially If one of their sons or dsugh-
ters gets married, they will spend their
last cent to make a great feast, when-
ever It may be. Then, when he has
come back and told them that he has
told everyone, the women give him a
horse. When they have the feast the
women all dress up In their brightest
colors, paint their faces and front and
long on the sides, and they almost al-
ways wear a long beaded bait and a
shawl, in fact, they wear a ebawl alt
the time. When It Is not around the
head and sliouldera It la tied around'
the waist. They never wear a hat ot
any kind, even on tha hotteat days
they are bareheaded.
