THE TIMBER OF THE FUTURE.
In fifty years from now the timber
question will be a ..burning question all
over the United States. We are wasting
our timber resources over the entire
conntry. The railroads, the cities, "the
paper mills, to say aothiag of the farm
requirements, are using up our timber at
a fearful rate. The timber of the future
must be growaand it ear not be grows
to advantage on land worth from $50 to
$100 per acre. When this is proposed,
the farmer will asy: I can not afford it;
and if I could, why should I? What has
posterity done for me? Let posterity
look after itself.
The fanners of the west will not grow
timber until they can see quite clearly
that it will pay them to grow it, and we
are now coming very near the time when
the question may well be raised: Will it
not pay on the cheap, rough lands to
allow a portion of them to remain in
timber where the natural timber is of
the right sort?
The forestry department of the depart
ment of agriculture is doing a noble
work in this direction. They are plant
ing out large areas in the sand hills of
Nebraska. They are making a study of
the best method of preventing forest
fires. Self-interest will bring the lum
ber companies by and by to realize the
necessity of harvesting only the ripe
timber and still preserving the forest
floor a cover in order that the young tim
ber may provide a subsequent harvest.

Everybody will be interested in the
views of that radical British Protestant,
Mr. W. T. Stead, on the character and
career of the late Pope. In an article on
Leo XIII, which he contributes to the
American Review of Reviews for August,
Mr. Stead says: "He made thinkable
once more the possibility of the realiza
tion of the great ideal of the early Popes,
and he compelled even the most embit
tered enemies of the Papacy to recognize
the immense possibilities for good that
lie latent in what might be the central
headquarters of the intelligence depart
ment of the moral sense of mankind. He
has disarmed the hostility of his ancient
foes, and round his bier Protestant,
Freethinker, and Catholic sorrowed as
brothers at the tomb of their common
father."
Grasshoppers with voracious appe
tites ana making things lively near Haig
ler, Nebraska. Professor Bruner, of the
State university, has returned from a
campaign against the insects and admits
that they are far more numerous than he
would like to see them. Complaints
from farmers caused Mr. Bruner to make
the trip. He went to Haigler and there
met the enemy and started a conflict that
lasted five days. Poisoning the insects
was the method pursued and when Mr.
Bruner and his assistant, Mr. Swenk,
left it was not the stage in which to
notice results. Reports of the experi
ment will be sent to Lincoln by observers
at Haigler.
Three Mexican murderers serving a
life sentence have recently achieved their
liberty in a novel way. By an arrange
ment with President Bias they were
turned over, with their own consent, to
a commission of yellow fever experts
from the United States to be experi
mented on. They were fed yellow fever
germs and had the germs injected into
their veins. It was found to be impossi
ble to communicate the disease to them
save by the bite of a certain species of
mosquito. All recovered and were set
free according to promise.
The Lincoln Star compares two fusion
papers in their efforts to account for the
prosperity we are enjoying, in the fol
lowing item:
One fusion organ, the Cedar Rapids
Outlook, is afflicted with the hallucina
tion that "the increase of prices" the last
few years is dne to the increase of the
amount of money in the country. But
another fusion organ prints the statistics
showing the per capita amount of money
and concludes that the increase has been
trifling. Both fusion organs omit one
really important factor in good times,
viz: the defeat of the unsound money
forces seven and three years ago.
The severest rainstorm of the season
visited Norfolk at midnight Sunday.
The storm came after an excessively op
pressive evening, during which the bar
ometer dropped low. The west side of
the city was flooded. Streets and ave
nues were transformed into running
rivers several feet deep, which tore along
at a furious rate. Sidewalks were flood
ed and lawns were covered with a thick
carpet of black mud and debris from
farms which line Corporation gulch far
back in the hills. Many gardens were
left destitute.

Sadaea Death of H.X.
A telegram was received here Monday
tolling of the death that morning of H.
M. Window, father of Mm. C. J. Gar low.
All that is known at the hour of going
to press is that Mr. Winslow dropped
dead in his wagon at his farm twenty
miles northeast of Stuart, Holt county.
George Winslow, who has been down
from Stuart several weeks, and was in
Osceola at the time the message came,
went up this Tuesday morning and was
accompanied by his sister, Mrs. Garlow.
They expect to return to Columbus
Wednesday evening with the remains of
their father.
Mr. Winslow was a very large man,
weighing something over 250 pounds
and it is supposed heart trouble was the
cause of death.
Mr. Winslow was born in Vermont G6
yean ago. He lived ten years in Illinois
then came to Nebraska where he has
lived twenty years. Two years ago Mr.
Window moved to Holt county twenty
miles northeast of Stuart, where he has
succeeded in the cattle raising business.
Mr. Winslow leaves a wife, his son
George and daughter Mrs. Garlow, to
mourn the sudden Iobb of a most devoted
husband and father, a friend to the needy
and a loyal citizen. Few people lived a
better christian life than the deceased
and his death will be mourned by alL
Mr. Garlow arrived home this morning
from Chicago where he had been on legal
business, and was accompanied home by
Mm. Simmond of Kankakee, Hliaois,

In the maple dells where we often played

Where the bine tags tamed their wigdown.
Aad purpling shadows oft delayed.
While the stars camped oat so half afraid
Over the meadows, near to the town.
Deep ia the maple dells.
Thro the walnut woods what a healing balm!
How we of the prairies loved their shades!
Warning as ia from the sedgy glades
The whippoorwiU sang her bountiful psalm;
Under summery cuttains cool and calm
Listened the brothers aad torn-boy maids.
Out in the walnet woods.
The broad-leafed lindens honey-blooms
Beck'ning the bees from high aad low
From banners of corn o'er many a row.
All chasing afar the changing glooms
Where columbines stood oa the banks below
Hanging their lanterns in forest rooms.
While brae-bell's skirts were fresh from the
looms.
Our hickory hills had satiny leaves
Wide as the sleeves of our grandma's gown
Trees ragged an gypsies roaming the town
Whose harps moaned sad as the wind that grieves
Each leaf swaying as a weaver weaves:
Riven with rents and stricken with seams
The trunks renewing their tatters o' brown.
Till patches were left by a legion streams
That wrought a camp-fire's garnered sheaves.
While tleepers dropped into occult dreams.
Lilies o' mora leaped the spaces there
Spotted as creatures bora in a lair,
While painting the screen o' th' prairie thrash
Waved the Indian-pink her Hams red brush,

stories about how they receive sacks of

strawberries and cream. When We read
these items we wonder what he does to
win his patrons' good will. Why they
should open up their hearts and be so
generous; we think back over the past
year that we have been a rural letter
carrier, we have tried to do our part
faithfully and honestly and to be as

week interviewing the voters in the inter
est of their candidacy.
In going over some old papers and
books the other day, Charles Schuetb,
srn ran across an old diary in which he
set down the dates on which corn was
tassled out each year. The dates run
from 1890 to 1896, and the earliest corn
in tassel during those yearn was July 23,
1894, and the latest was August 8,1892.
This year some corn in the vicinity of
Humphrey was in tassel as early as July
20, so even though corn had a miserably
poor start, it turns out better than usual,
and we miss our guess if we do not have
the largest crop of corn here this year
that we have had in a good many years.

A hook by Captain Markham of the
British army tells of experiences in
Westminster school, London, some
thing over half a century ago. He de
scribes the "handings" of those days.
The back of the hand was extended,
while the master, standing behind,
smote it with a rod, which "curled over
a little" and left a cut, and the culprit,
facing the school, observed the eti
quette of the occasion by wearing an
expression of "scornful amusement."
Captain Markham also describes "tan
ning," which was administered with
the butt end of a rod upon the backs of
the boys' legs. He recalls the code of
honor, which was merciless to the boy
who broke bis word or allowed another
to suffer for his offense, but permitted
"any amount of humbugging of a mas
ter." WheaVdisincIined for school you
said, "I don't feel very well, sir," and
before the master inspected your
tongue you gave "the upper surface a
hard pressure with your upper teeth,
and out came a tongue white enough to
satisfy any doctor."
Ua4ersraal Waters.
The earth contains an abundance of
water, even in places like some of our
great western plateaus where the sur
face is comparatively arid. The great
est depth at which underground water
can exist is estimated to be about six
miles. Below that, it is believed, the
cavities and pores of the rock are com
pletely closed. The amount of water
in the earth's crust is reckoned at
nearly a third of that contained in the
oceans, so that it would cover the
whole surface of the globe to a depth
of from 3,000 to 3,500 feet. The waters
underground flow horizontally after
sinking below the unsaturated zone of
the rocks, but in the sands of the Da
kota formation, which supply remark
able artesian wells, the motion does
not exceed one or two miles a year.
The underflow toward the sea beneath
the great plains may sometimes take
the form of broad streams or moving
sheets of water, but the movement is
excessively slow. Youth's Companion.

Are you milking cows and do you use
a hand cream separator? If so, we want
to buy your cream and will pay as much
or more for it delivered at our creamery
as you can realize by shipping else
where. You have the satisfaction of
seeing it weighed and the sample taken.
You take the same cans back that you
bring with you; no waiting on the trains
for cans to be returned. A shipper
knows what this means.
We not only want cream to churn but
want perfectly sweet cream and milk
that we can sell for family use. If you
do not have a separator let us sell you
one. We handle only one kind The
DeLaval Baby and back it in every
way. Call at our creamery, Fitz pat
rick's old hall near postoffice, and let us
talk with you.
