KEITH'S, BLOCK, OPPOSITE i'HB UNION PACIFIC .DEPOT The Lincoln Journal rises in its place and makes these cold and unfeeling remarks in regard to a former Lincoln county pop states man who has been buried in oblivion for many moons: "The state relief commission undoubtedly stands be tween the charitable and noble hearted people of the land who are anxious to feed the hungry and clothe the naked, and a small army of cormorants and "beats" who desire to make hay galore while the philr."thropic sun shines. Can it be that this is the offense for which it is held up with so much violence by sundry members of the legisla ture? One instinctively recalls the facts that leaked out four years ago, when it was discovered that some thrifty members ot the pop persuasion had been drawing so a day at Lincoln and their thrift' temporary widows at home had been drawing provisions, clothing, seed grain and what not from the county allotments for the destitute. Is it because the state and county com mission have cut their eye teeth, and cannot be so easily imposed upon this year, that so much violent wrath is excited?" The Red Cloud Chief urges the citizens of that city to pull for a beet sugar factory and says: The factory would be of incalculable benefit to this city and county, fur nishing as it would a fine home market for the best raising product and the most prolific money getting that we have ever attempted to pro duce in Webster county. This fact has been easily proven by Anthony Schaefer, who raised 200 tons of beets in 1S94 making a clear profit of $900. If such an amount of money can be cleared on 30 acres of land in a drouth season what could be obtained in a favorable season? Mr. Schaefer had to pay freight to Norfolk. If the factory should be located in Red Cloud, the freight cost would be obviated. Those are two reasons whv we i ought to work for the factor-. Di strict Oourt Froottdiogs.

SACALINE vs. SACALINE. In a letter dated Feb. 1st, 1895, A. Blanc & Co., seedsmen of Phila delphia, write as follows: "In a cold state like Nebraska it would be far more desirable to grow saca line from roots than from seed. The seed must be raised indoor or in hot beds, in. good rich soil, kept constantly moist. Cover the seed thinly. In about forty days the plants will be large enough to trans plant into flats or boxes and held until danger of frost is over when they could be planted outside. Roots, however, can be planted out at any time. Our roots have just reached us after a voyage of three months by way of Canadian Pacific railroad, and while many of them were frozen solid, they are all sound and already starting to grow when put in warmth. Roots can be set out four feet apart each way and will make a growth of three to four feet the first few months, when they can be cut down and wilPgrow again, a growtn or twelve teet a year can only be expected after the plants have been established three or four years. Purchasers should be cautioned against a cheap seed of another Polygorum (P. Cuspida turn), offered a a low price, and even given away, and which cattle WE PAY CASH 100 CENTS ON THE DOLLAR AND SELL CHEAPER THAN ANY HOUSE IN THE CITY. EJMIE'S SLAUGHTER SALE----1895. .

Rice, of Winview, Okla., writes as fol lows in regard to the new vegetable wonder: "Sacaliue is now offered for the first time. 1 expect to try it, as I do most of the lorage plants. But I want to caution farmers as to the unthoughted planting of it. Just read what is claimed for it and then if you think it is the thing for your farm try it on a small scale. But notice that it is claimed that neither drouths, floods nor fire will destrov it; that the roots take possession of the ground; grows fourteen feet high, and that cattle cannot trample it out. It these things be true, and that it spreads by its roots, might it not be a pest which you could not get rid of? Then if it produces 180 tons of forage per acre, are you prepared r handling even ouc acre of it. of course know nothing of it. Almost every seedsman has seeds and roots for sale and their descrip tions are almost identical, scarcely any variation except in details. So far as I have been able to gather, it has not been tested in this coun try except as an ornamental plant. I think seedsmen should have given, it a thorough test before offering for sale." One of our subscribers, says the Wood River Interests, informs us that he has purchased one root of the new fangled plant "sacaline" for 25 cents and will plant it in the corner of his lot and await develop ments. The firm selling the plant speaks of it, in their advertisement, as solving the forage question. They say that "cattle like it better than clover or alfalfa, it yields from ninety to one hundred and eighty tons per acre, it flourishes during the severest drouth, or in the worst of floods and on the poorest soil. that floods will uot destroy it, and cattle canot trample it out." In our boyhood days we heard of an old farmer who planted a new fangled pumpkin seed on his farm jvnd be fore the season was over the pump kins and the vines chased him off the place. Dear experience has taught us to be rather incredulous, and we have serious misgivings as to this new plant, lest it should in some way get the upper hand of its owner ana betore lie wouia oe aware of it, it would encompass him about. NEBRASKA'S CROP ALL. RIGHT. Statistics show that from 1869 to 1894. inclusive, being a period of twenty-six years, Nebraska has had eighteen good crops, four short crops and four failures, as seen by the table printed below. It is also claimed by people who have made a study of this subject, that history repeats itself in this as in many other things; and that as a general rule, similar conditions succeed themselves in cycles of twenty years or every fifth of a century. On this basis the Patriot submits the following table compiled from the most reliable crop statistics of this state, beginning with 1869, as follows: Pa-t 5th Century. 1869 ni(f crop 1870 Falluro 1571 Good crop 1572 Good crop 187.J Short crop 1871 Fallnro 1875 Good crop 1856 Good crop 1877 Good crop 1878 Good crop 1879 Good crop 1880 Short crop 1881 Good crop 1882 Good crop 188.1 Good crop 18g4 Good crop 18tvi Good crop lgfjrt Good crop 1857 Good crop 188 Good crop It will be seen by the above that the first six years of the present 5th century tallies-exactly with the corresponding dates of twenty years before. If this repetition of history is kept up, as it has been in the past, we shall have five good crops in succession up to 1899; then a short crop, in 1900: then eicht years Present 3th Century. 18i Ilis crop lsl Failuru lS'.U Good crop 1892 Good crop 189:1 Short crop m Falluro 1835 1896 mi 1899 1900 1901 1902 19U5 1901 1905 1906 1907 1908 GEO.

Clay County Patriot. Premiums for speed above the re quirements will be no longer given by the United States to the builders of naval vessels. This is rijrht. Builders, contractors and designers ought to have patriotism enough in their souls to make their country's warships the fastest on the globe withoutany other reward than the satisfaction to be drawn from that fact and from the. appreciation of their grateful fellow countrymen. It.is iust as well once in awhile still to do something for pure love of one's country. It will have a good effect on the school children. Kegister- The Rockford. Ill Gazette, speaking for its city as a Nebraska relief center, advises its philanthropic citizens that the best thing to send to that suffering com monwealth is money. Money doesn't get side-tracked for two weeks and spoil. Monej gets there in forty-eight hours, and if proper recipients arc "selected, it escapes the manipulation of an overworked or incompetent relief bureau. Thoucrh an easy charity to shio away wearing apparel that you never expect to wear again, it is good practice to make your gifts in money that can be instantly ex changed for necessaries bought in that state, and, that too, cheaply. But everything counts now, and as has been true since the fall of man, he gives twice who gives quickly. C. J. Ernfet. of the land depart ment ot the Burlington railwaj-, writes the State Journal in this strain: "If you want to establish a first-class reputation as a weather prophet and at the same time give great courage to your multitude of readers, I advise you. as one who has seen twentj-seven years in Nebraska, and all that time inter ested in farming operations, both officially and personally, to predict that before June 15th, 1895, the farmers cultivating the low bottom lands in southeastern Nebraska will complain that the corn is rot ting in the ground, while other farmers all over Nebraska will be smiling at the abundance of rain." The most prosperous agricultural communities in America to-day arc the Mormon, in Utah, says the Irrigation Age, and their prosperity is largely due to the fact that their twenty-acre farms are made to pro duce almost everthing required for the food and clothing of the family. The south has passed through the great depression better than the north, and chiefly because since the failure of cotton speculation twenty years ago, the efforts of the south ern farmers, statesman and news paper have been devoted to build ing up a diversified agriculture, and with great success. Sustenance of the family, in all directions, from the farm should be the watchword. The small farm is to-day the most profitable th? whole world over. For many years epileptic colonies have existed in Europe, and they have worked well. The state of New York will now make the ex periment of establishing one in this country. In Livingston count' a large farm, formerly belonging to the Shaker brethren, has been bought. The work on the place will be done by the afflicted ones themselves. The lot of the epileptic is a peculiarly sad one. Excepting only the minutes while his hapless seizures last, he is a man among men, intelligent as his fellows and as capable, with all the emotions and aspirations of his race. But because of the fatal spasms he is in a measure set apart from man. The attacks are liable to come any time, so that he is never safe to go from home alone. The farm will make a home for the unfortunate men, women and children whom fate has thus cursed. In one group of cot tages will dwell the men; in another on a different part of the grounds, the women, while a home and a graded school will also be estab lished for the children. All that comfort and clean, cheerful sur roundings can do for epileptics will be done there, and meanwhile medi cal science will make an especial study of their cases with a view to discovering whether there is not some means of cure. Both charity and paj patients will be provided for, the charity patients first, it is said, which is rather reversing the usual order. FOR RENT.
