There is vet soine valuable public land to be opened to hoinesteaders. The Sisseton military tract will be available for settlement in a very short time. It is in northeast Dakota, and contains half a million acres. Adjoining it is a rnuch larger tract, the Sisseton reservation proper, which will also be opened before very long. It is on Lake Traverse and Red river of the north, adjoining Minnesota. The Indians to whom the reservation belonged have been gradually taking lands in severalty, 160 acres each, ever since 1877. There are 1,800 of these Indians, and it is only a question of a little time when all will have separate farms. There will then be left still a large amount of valuable land, which government will open at once to white settlement. The Indians on the Sisseton reservation are civilized farmers and stock raisers. Bradstreet's commercial agency luis made an estímate of the losses of property by the recent floods, and it is $44,250,000. Three million dollars were raised within a week in this country for the relief of the sufferers, and any amount that was needed was offered f rom Europe. Af ter all, there is a kinship among mankind that comes out in times like these. It is rather odd that an American system of drawing is in use in the schools of Italy. Charles G. Leiand, "Hans Breitinan," is the author of it. The schools of HunKary have also adopted h3 system of drawing and designing. Very significant, when one comes to think about it, ia that utterance of Salisbury in the English house of lords that it was never more uncertain whether the rulers of Europe would remain in power fire vears.
