All these reports from Fox Butte
county farms make the most' intcm-t-inf;-
reading that anyone can Cnd in hot
weather. Wheat i muk'np from
twenty-five to as h;,h as fifty bushels
per acre, and there are a lot of acres
of it. Already they arc y-hlpplrg it
out by the carload. Fretty Fcon the
rpuds will be harvested, and then an
era of old-time prosperity ought to be
at hand. There'll be money coming
into the county with every mail, and
history shows that whenever the farm
ers have prosperity they pass it along
in generous fashion.
This talk of harvesting reminds us
that we have a mighty good selection
of things that appeal to the man who
is busy in the fields these days. There
are hats and gloves and overalls, all of
Ithem at fair prices, as well as some
hose that we have made a mighty
good price on. There are some spe
cial values in shoes and shirts. When
you get ready to go at the harvesting
in earnest, it's well to be prepared for
it, and we can outfit you completely,
from the toes up, and not make more
than a small dent in your poeketbook.
With all these Boy Scouts and
Campfire Girls going out on camping
trips, it makes us wonder why the
business men and other older people
. couldn't do the same thing on the same
big scale. If there is anything that
grown-ups need, it is to get together
more often when they don't wear their
party manners. There ought to be
some place "in tne hills where fifty or
sixty tired business men could camp
ut for a week and really get acquaint
ed. Now that there isn't any liquid
bait to take along, a fishing trip is
a ral test of good fellowship. In
stead of going out for a day or two,
on a hunting or fishing excursion, they
could take a week's rest from wives
and families and the chances are that
there would be more co-operation be
tween them when they returned than
seven years' membership in a goodfel
lowship club would develop.
This is vacation time right now. A
few fellows got married or visited
their wife's relations during June, but
. the latter part of July and the first
two weeks in August are the regular
vacation period. Of course, a man has
right to get married any time that
pleases him, and he should take a va
cation any time he can get away with
one. More and more people are lean
' ing to the idea of taking their vaca
tions by automobile. Some of the
boys who went to Cheyenne report that
they saw from a hundred and fifty to
two hundred campers during a two or
three-day trip. A man can take his
wife and half a dozen children along
with him and s-U.y away seven days,
eating and sleeping along the road,
r.nd jret off for less money than it
would co.-t him to go alone and stay
at hotels for the same length of time.
The chief beauty about these auto
mo!ilr trips is that no one dresses up.
If you go by tra n you're on a sort
of a dress parade all the time, with
white collar ami well pressed clothes.
Camping and automobiling is entirely
different. You can wear loose-fitting
clothes and poople expect you to be
comfortable. The fellow who dresses
up on an auto tour is regarded as a
first-cla.s chump. You'll meet all
kinds of good fellows along the way
and make more friends in twenty-four
hours on the road than you will in a
hummer resort in a week.
If you'r planning to take your vaca
tion by autombile, remember, whei
you're getting ready for the trip, that
you will find here a good assortment
of clothes that combine Folid comfort
with isexpensivenesss. There are
khuki suits, or extra troupers and
.-hiits thct tier.'; ;-?cr hclcr. : ;it-
recks. There aie low hoi for coin
fort rnd stout fhoes fi.i hiking p.
c'imbing. You'll fiad here a lot of
thin?? you'll be fable to use. and y u'l
sf.ve money on them, tnd ycvfll get
nothing but sen ice and corrfort ov.t of
them. We've been on wveral trip?,
and we'll be glad to give yru point rs
about roads, good places to fish, and
good clothes to wear. If there's any
thing we like better than i.O'PK on a
vacation, it's helping someone else to
have u pood tin.:. YVie at your
service all the time, and it gives us
genuine plensuie to give you any in
formation we've got fn .tock.
Yours as always,

The Cheyenne show has become n
national institutional- these days, and
the -ueee.-s cf the how is conceded by
Cheyenne citizens to be due in large
part to advertising. The Alliance men
found that Fred Babcock, at one time
employed on the State Journal, but
now with a Cheyenne daily, was chiefly
responsible for mapping out the ad
vertising stunts that drew people from
as far east as Chicago and New York.
All road led to Cheyenne this week,
and over two hundred cars headed in
that direction were seen by the two
Alliance men. Most of these were
passed on the way. Harper's car made
the trip in a trifle over seven hours.
Theie was a regular crowd at the
frontier exhibition. Tuesday a big
sjiecial train came down from Denver,
bringing a thousand or more people.
Arrangements had been made with the
Denver Post and Union Pacific Rail
road company by the management at
Cheyenne and this big booster trip ad
vertising the roundup was effected, j
TfriS is called a hard year for enter- j
tainment enterprises, and the newspa
per r.re filled with stories of deficits,'
but it didn't worry Cheyenne a bit.
The fellows in charge of the show
spent money letting people know about
it, and they responded with the larg
est crowd ever recorded in the history
of the celebration for the second day.
One indication of the travelers who
came from a distance to see the show
was found in the on thousand tents
that were counted in the public camp
inc mounds at Cheyenne. This white
c-itv was estimated to contain at least
2,ft00 people.
No Shortage of Cars
- for Moving Grain Is
Word From Burlington
In spite of reports to the contrary,
there is no shortage of grain cars on
Burlington lines in Nebraska, General
Superintendent Flyim said yesterday
in an interview in the Lincoln Star.
There have been some cases where
elevators were without cars to load for
a day or two but the trouble has been
hjA fo flelavs in distribution of empty
cars and not to shortage of cars.
The distribution problem this year
has been more serious than usual, he
caid. owing to the unusually large
number of direct shippers to points
n Minnesota. The time required to
?et the empty cars back to Nebraska
noints was to great that there was
langer of a serious shortage at one
time, Mr. Flynn said, but he has ar
ranged with the Great Northern to
deliver empties at Sioux City in ex
change for loaded cars, which has
made it possible to avoid any serious
inconvenience to grain shippers in
Shipments from points on the Bu--ington
in this tatf are averaging just
ibout the same as they have averaged
for r.earlv three weeks about 500 cars
a dav. There is no surplus of grain
cars in this state, Mr. Flynn said, but
Se does not anticipate any serious
-hort:.ge. Loaded grain is being
moved" promptly, without the delays,
due to lack of power, which have
caused so much inconvenience some
years in the past.

Preparations to Begin
Drilling Operations
For Oil Near Lakeside1
Rumors of drilling for o'l a mile or
so this side of Lakeside, which have
been spreading about the county for
the past few weeks, have at last some
thing substantial behind thrm. A car
load of material was unloaded at Lake
side Tuesday, consisting of a big
Standard rig. The freight bill ran
over1 the f 1,300 mark. Lumber and
cement for construction nurnoses. and
nipr, lir.ve been unloaded there during,
the past week or ten days. J
far as can ! discovered, the
well is financed entirely by outside
capital. No attempt has been made
to dispose of stock, and there is none
for sale. The men behind the drilling
are said to be potash men from Omaha
and Antioch, and the name of Wood
ward, the candy manufacturer, is men
tioned among the list. These men
their representatives have been secur
ing leases on land in the vicinity of
the proposed well the past month or
so, and several ranchers report hav
ing execute doil leases.
