The farmers that planted largo fields of
corn last season are now reaninir their
harvest. The corn crop on an average is
yielding from 30 Jo 50 bushels to the
acre of excellent quality. Those who
have been here long 'enough to have hogs
to feed their corn are realizing from $4.25
to $4.50 per hundred for them, which is
equivalent to 35 or forty cents a bushel
for corn. Those that are marketing their
corn are now receiving 25 cents a bushel
for.it with prospect of prices being much
better before summer. There are a great
many feeding cattle at present which will
consume the surplus by early spring and
make corn scarce through the summer
for home use. With the amount of graz
ing lands the county affords it will always
be well stocked with cattle which will
assure a home market for corn each
year. Farming and especially raising
corn is certain to be one of the best
businesKes in the county. A failure in
crops has never been known here and
the yield has always been above the
average of other localities. Broken Bow

thus punctures Lincoln's railroad scheme,

projects which are gotten np for the pu r
pose'of booming real estate often show a
marvelous facility in leaking through the
little end of the horn. If the projectors
can raise the $4,000,000 or so required for
building their road, among patriotic citi

The following paragraph in the New

There is a slight discripency in the fig
ures somewhere. During the campaign
of '84, Senator Vest and other Democratic
leaders charged that the Republican ad
ministrations had squared since the war
$400,000,000 in repairing the eld ships of
the navy. Secretary Whitney says the
figures are only $70,000,000. But then
$330,000,000 of a stretch isn't much for a

The increased activity in all commercial;

is a matter of surprise to the general

has helped to harden values and to stimu

enough to complete the contract work in
hand. The upward tendency in prices,
says the same paper, will not probably go
very far. Manafacturing Interests geaer

amount of business on their books. Be

branches has been increased to such an
extent that there Is no occasion for fear

benefit to our agricultural interests aad it
is generally admitted that the state is well
adapted to the raising of silk aad sugar.
At present the farmers of Nebraska do
not know how to understand these new
industries, nor does any one until the
the experiment has been thoroughly tried.
It can hardly be expected that private
individuals will risk their money ia what
