"Some of our farmers are feeding stock, although the last two years have been disastrous, and I hear of some corn being burned for fuel. A few are cribbing the grain as the vield is big and the quality the best I ever saw. This year's grain, properly cribbed, will keep four or five years, and the t price, it Feems to me, is bound to im- , prove in that time, l am putting most , of my corn in the crib. Charles Spath, for many years a live stock shipper to the Omaha mar ket, visited the yards this week and laughed at. hard times said to be fac ing the farmer today. Mr. Spath said he remembered a , time in the early 90s when hos were j selling on the Omaha market at f;2.'Jb a hundred and now they are kicking for fear the market will drop to &5 a hundred. "Those were hard times," laid Mr. Spath, "and many fanners were worry ing about getting enough to feed their families, but they weathered the storm and s6"ihe of them now are well ofT." Two Ways of Looking At It. OMAHA "It sure i.i hard for a farmer to get along who has to sell his corn these days," remarked W. H. Shaughnessy of O Neil, who was down yesterday with cattle. "The elevators announce that they are not going to liuy corn until December and the price is about 20 cents for what little new grain is changing hands. "I hcirrd a case of a farmer bringing a load of corn seven miles to town. He had a hard time finding a buyer. He took his chock to a local merchant, bought a pair of overalls and a dollar's worth of sugar and hardly had enough left to buy tobacco. Rancher Sues Packers.

Nature Fakir at Wymore. WYMORE Mrs. O. A. Hudson, liv ing a few miles east of here, report? a peculiar circumstance coming within her observation. She is a lover of birds, and keeps food and water out for them at all times. For some time she had been noticing the peculiar ac tions of a blackbird and a thrush which had been coming to eat regu larly, and always together. Upon in vestigation, she paw that the black bird fed the thrush, picking up bits of food and putting them into the mouth of the other bird exactly ns a 'robin puts fobd into the mouths of her young.
