Ed says that spuds is the best crop for quick returns but thinks that hogs and corn are the best in the long run and the easiest as the hogs will do so much of the work and never complain about the wages or the long hours.

John O'Mara came to this county i April 11, 1885, and as far as he knows there was only one man in tnis part of the country when he came and that one beat him only two or three days. Mr. O'Mara had an experience that he will never forget. When he first came he knew nothing of the Nebraska bliz zards and the first week he was here it commenced to rain and rained for two days, then turned to snow and snowed for two davs. Thev had no 'protection for man or beast, except I the wagon; no hay for the stock, and no fuel except boxes that were in the wagon. He tells us that the horses ate the wagon box about all up. Now Mr. O'Mara owna 1,120 acres of good land and has it nicely improved with a modern house, with all the improve I ments that make for convenience, and has the best orchard that we have seen in this county that is just coming into bearing. The trees look as thrif ty as trees do in the fruit country of the east. We were curious to know how he grew such nice trees when the neighbors could not get trees to grow, so asVid John how he did it He told us that 16 w H in tk way they were : cultivated. In the first place he 'plowed the irround by plowing lands jjust the width of the tree rows and . planted the trees in th efurrow. In cul ; tivating, he worked the soil back to tne tree, the next year plowed the Roil away from the trees again and re peated the same operation. He culti vates the trees about every ten days and tells us that hi trees never want 'for moisture. At three years old the plums bore more fruit than the family I Could -use, but the present season the late frost got all the bloom on both j plum and apple trees. He has about 1 600 trees of all kinds apple, cherry I and plum and they are all healthy trees. John has one hundred acres of wheat, thirty of oats, eighty of corn, twenty of spuds, sixty of alfalfa, twen ty cattle, sixteen horses and fifty hogs. John says that hogs and corn make the easiest and best money, if you let the hogs do the husking of the corn. I He thnks this the cheapest and best I land for whnt it will produce of any place he knows. cattle find ten hogs. James says that the beat and easiest motipy j. ih cattle and hops. We were? invited to dinner here and we enjoyed a good friend chicken dinner with lemonade and lemon pie and everything. The Krejci brothers were born here. There are three of the boys ami all work to gether, and they have surely made good. They own forty-seven hundred acres of land. They have one hundred acres of wheat, one hundred and sev enteen of oats, twenty of barley, one hundred and seventy of rye, fifteen of alfalfa, eight of spuds, and three hun dred and sixty of com, three hundred rattle, eighteen horses ami six hun dred and twenty-eight hog3. The boy say that corn and hogs are the best things to raise but try and produce a little of everything. These boys started with very little money and have ione the le.-t of anyone we have seen so far. While not entirely out oi debt, they could pay out at any time they choose. John S.

He says that a man can get a home here easier than any place he ever saw, but he advised not to buy too big a place, as that is the trouble here. Land is cheap and so many buy so much more than they' should. (Continued on Page 6 ) C. F. Sulzbach came here from New York city nineteen years ago and owns fifteen hundred and twenty acres of land.
