Farmers out near Hastings hit upon a novel scheme to save their small grain after a hard storm, which laid the cereal flat on the ground. Every other tooth in hay rakes were removed and fields were combed with this machine and then cut one way, most of the grain being saved. The populist conference now being held in Denver is meeting in an endeav or to strengthen their political fences and not, ss has been stated, to form an other political party.

The largest fresh water pearl on record was found at Genoa, Wisconsin, on the 22d, by a 17-year-old son of Willis Hast ings, while fishing. It measures 15-16 of aa inch in diameter. A local dealer bought it as it came from the shell for S675. It was incased in an irregular shell like substance which, when remov ed, disclosed the beautiful white pearl. Real estate in Nebraska is rapidly in creasing in value and is in great demand at the top prices. Among the transfers recently made are 160 acres of York county land for $8,000; 80 acres in Sew ard for $4,800; 320 acres in Colfax for $16,800; a seventy-acre tract near Au burn for $4,015 and a farm near Grand Island for $10,000, which sold a few years ago for $4,000. The Eleventh National Irrigation con gress will be held at Ogden, Utah, Sept. 15 to 18. President Roosevelt, through oat his recent western tour, frequently gave utterance to his belief that National aid for the reclamation of the arid west is of paramount importance in our National policy; and to foster this policy is the work of this congress "To Save the Forests and Store the Floods." Estimates received in Omaha from all parts of the state show clearly that Ne braska's wheat crop will exceed any previous crop in her history. The acre age, which is 15 per cent greater than last year, will yield at least 80,000,000 bushels. This compared with the 10,- 810,000 bushel crop of 1890, illustrates the enormous advance of Nebraska as a wheat-growing state. Unusual prosper icy is apparently guaranteed Nebraska far another twelve months. Tmm.

Do yon know that every cruelty inflict ed on an animal in killing or just before death poisons to a greater or leas extent its meat? Do you know that every cruelty in flicted upon a cow poisons to a greater or less extent its milk? Do you know that fish killed as soon as taken from the water by a blow on the back of the head will keep longer and be better than those permitted to die slowly. Do you know that birds destroy mil lions of bugs, mosquitoes and harmful insects; that without the birds we could not live on the earth, and that every little insect-eating bird you may kill and every egg yon may take from its nest means one less bird to destroy insects? Do you know that a check-rein which will not permit a horse to put his head where he wants to when going up a hill is a cruel torture to the horse? Do you know that the mutilation of a horse by cutting off his tail compels him to suffer torture from flies and insects every summer as long as he lives? Do you know that every kind act you do and every kind word you speak to a dumb animal will make not only the animal but yourself happier, and not only make you happier but also better f Geo. T. Angell. The World-Herald has started in to boom the democratic state convention to be held at Columbus next month, but is studiously silent about the grand gathering of the other end of the reform forces which is to take place at Grand Island at the same time. Is this a will ful plot to bull the democratic stock market and bear down the populist se curities by making a great show of dem ocrats at Columbus as compared with a poor turnout of populists at Grand Island ? The democratic claim for spoils, if there ever should be any spoils to di vide, would find vigorous reinforcement in an exhibit that the democrats had furnished all the recruits and ammuni tion for the fight. But will the popu lists stand for this kind of a game? The populists in Nebraska have proved themselves something in the way of hot air experts themselves. Omaha Bee. It befalls there are two judges to be elected this year in this, the Sixth, judi cial district. Republicans admit, at the outset, that the chances are against them, but not for this reason are they without hope. The five counties com prising the district show an adverse total on a straight party vote. Besides the fusionists have possession of the offices. Judges Grimison and Hollen beck are of the other kind; one a popu list, if that still has a definite meaning, the other a democrat. There are many good republican lawyers in this district who would honor the judiciary. J. G. Reader of Columbus is said to be at least a passive candidate. With Reeder, and another equally good, on the repub lican ticket there is no reason why the calamity candidates should not be given a hot chase in these days of prosper ity. Fremont Tribune. The coroner's jury at Cheyenne that has for ten days been investigating the cause of the explosion of Union Pacific locomotive No. 1516, Saturday brought in the following verdict: That Ed Carl son came to his death by an, explosion of the boiler of engine 1516 on-July 15; that the radial stay bolts which support the crown sheet were not of sufficient strength to withstand the pressure used because their manner of being screwed through and riveted did not give them sufficient head; that the front end of the crown sheet was over-heated on account of the low water, causing the explosion, but that said explosion would not have occurred had it not been for the weak construction of the crown sheet. Miss Louise Haney, daughter of Mrs. Mary Schaad, who for several years has been engaged in Mrs. Jay's millinery store, left Saturday for Lead City, South Dakota, where she was married Sunday evening at 5 o'clock to Ralph Coolidge, son of Joseph Coolidge of this city. The ceremony was performed by the Episco pal minister at the home of the groom's uncle, Harry Coolidge. From here Miss Haney was accompanied by Mrs. Bremer, grandmother of the groom, who will visit relatives there for two weeks or more. Miss Angie Early also accom panied them as far as Fremont. Both bride and groom are well known to Columbus people, being native born. Ralph is a young man who has made a success as a carpenter and contractor through his own ability and persever ance. Miss Haney is a noble girl in heart and will make a model wife for her worthy husband. The Journal joins with the many friends of the young couple in wishing them happiness and prosperity. Several men in company with H. E. Babcock have been working, finishing up details in the survey of the canal power, the past few weeks. Mr. Bab cock has spent part of his time in Fre mont with the surveying party there who are now going over the route for their first actual survey, all others having been preliminary, and this report from the experts will be used in deciding between the Columbus and Fremont plans. The Fremont Tribune Bays: "One of the most important items which will deter mine the respective merits of the Fre mont and Columbus plans will be the size of the area that can be used for reservoir purposes. It is recognized that there must be ample storage capacity for water to guard against dry seasons." In an interview with the engineer in charge, the Tribune quotes Mr. Vorce as saying the project is "entirely feasible. There can be no doubt about that." There are now about twelve men at work on the survey, and nothing definite can be given out until the two plans are passed upon by the experts. The Schuyler Sun editor is constant ly working to inspire the business men of that town to awake to their opportu nities. The last issue contained the fol lowing reference to Columbus' prosperity and good business principles: "Ten years ago traveling men said that Schuy ler was a bettor town than Columbus; chat we sold more goods than Columbus. However, in the last seven or eight years Columbus has picked up and left us in L ADDITIONAL i : : LOCAL : : the rear. This is only encouragement though, and what Columbus has done can be done in Schuyler, if the proper conditions are realized and the proper push exercised. Of course, one thing needed is a new bridge over the, Platte. Another, and to our mind greater pres ent need, is better roads all over the county. And yet another, and perhaps greater than them all, is the need of con stant and aggressive co-operation on the part of Schuyler's business men." We might add that the real prosperity of Columbus has been due to the staunch business men, who have always avoided sensational booming of the town and have treated their customers with up rightness. Columbus is a conservative town and has never boasted of her ad vantages, bat has a standing throughout the state aa one of the very best towns in this commonwealth. The special train chartered by the Columbus fire department to take them to the state tournament at Norfolk, left Columbus at about 7 o'clock Tuesday morning of last week with about 100 people, and returned Wednesday morn ing about 2 o'clock with a good share of the excursionists tired but merry. Tues day morning, as stated in last week's issue, Columbus took first prize for hav ing the largest number of uniformed firemen in the parade, forty-nine being the number of representatives. The prize was a nozzle valued at $25. Stan ton won the second prize which was $15, with forty-one representatives. The Stanton fleet running hose team holds the championship belt for the next year having beaten Fremont and Seward, who were tie for second place, in a 250 yard race and coupling in 335 seconds against 3&9 seconds. The Stanton boys used the old Bissell run ning cart which belongs to the Colum bus fire department which was rented for the occasion. There were about fourteen teams in the races. Music was furnished at different times by bands from Madison, Wisner, Fremont and Grand Island. The grand parade on Thursday evening was the closing event of the tournament. The most striking feature of the parade was the Flambeau club which was a long line of firemen shooting Roman candles as they marched. On the first two days of the tournament there were 1,200 people on the grounds and on the third day 1,600. The hotels and restaurants had difficul ty in taking care of the crowds, a great many having to sleep out doors all night. Where the tournament will be held next year will be determined at the convention in Fremont next winter. Early Local History. A great many visitors to McPherson's lake or what many call McAllister's lake, come across a broken marble slab tomb stone in the grove near the old log house, and wonder what historical events are connected with it On the stone are carved these words: "In memory of Anvalina Baldwin, died November 10, 1865, aged 23 years, 7 months, 6 days. Young people note aa yon pass by Aa you are now, so once was I. As I am now ao yoa will be. Prepare for death, and follow me." Several weeks ago the Schuyler Quill published an account of this stone and we take the following facts from that, which has been confirmed by W. A. Mc Allister of this city who well remembers the family. "In June, 1863, Green was in his early day business of freighting from Omaha to Denver. He had a span of mules and wagon and loaded with freight for Den ver. He had been stopping at Elder Moses Shinn's place in Omaha a few weeks before starting and at that time the present Nebraska metropolis was little more than a trading point on the Missouri. A couple of young girls had come from New York state by rail to Fort Des Moines where now is the city of Des Moines, Iowa, and at that termi nal railroad point they staged it to Council Bluffs, crossing the river on a ferryboat. They also stopped at Shinn's, but were coming on up into Nebraska to the ranch of a brother-in-law, a man named Hiram Bushnell, whose place was where Charles Fowler now lives, south west of Schuyler a few miles. Learning that Green was coming past the ranch where their sister lived they soon arrang ed to come with him and they did, arriv ing three days after leaving Omaha. One of these girls was this Anvalina Baldwin who lies buried near McAllister's lake. She was to have been married to James Skinner, jr., whose father had a ranch near where John Smith now lives." The log house near where the tomb stone can be found has many interesting connections with pioneer history and is one of the few log houses left in this part of the state. James McAllister, deceased, father of W. A. McAllister and Mrs. Hensley of this city, lived in the house from 1859 until 1873. Mr. McAllister came to this country in 1857, his family arriving in '58 and in '59 he, with his sons, built the log house cutting and trimming the logs used from the Cottonwood trees on the island just south. At that time this house was considered an exceptionally nice abode. The large grove surround ing the house was planted by W. A. McAllister and his brother Steve by pulling up trees from across the slough, laying them in furrows and covering with the plow. The road between the grove and slough is the old famous mili tary road laid out by the government. ciiAinoBUcns Are you milking cows and do you use a hand cream separator?

Mr. Hayes is very enthusiastic over the power canal, but he is a little afraid that Fremont will hold the winning hand; his reason, he says, is that Armour is back of the Fremont company and that Mr. Armour could build it himself if he so desired. 0.
