NEBRASKA CORN AT WORLD'S

The Nebraska 8tate Commission to
the World's Fair at St Louis, wishing
to exhibit the finest samples of Nebraska-grown
com at the J3i position in 1901,
a splendid opportunity to the
of this county to enter into
petition for valuable Exposition pre-1
miams as wall- as to widely advertise
their cora-producing lands. Any farmer
who baa grown fine, large samples of
corn is asked to ahip at least twenty-lve
ears of each variety by freight to the
Secretary of the Commission, Mr. H. 6.
Shedd, 414 McCague Building, Omaha,
Nebraska, notifying him of such ship
ment and sending him the bill of lading.
All each eollectiona of corn, if accepta
ble to the Commission, will be sent to
St. Louis and entered in the individual
growers names for the premiums offered
by the Exposition authorities without
expense to the growers. In preparing
ears of corn for such exhibition purpo
ses, the following suggestions should be
followed:
The ear should stand on the Btalk un
til fully matured. The earscebould be
dried in a heated room, but toe kitchen
is not a good place on account of the
steam. Great care should be taken not
to shell even a single kernel from the
To ship, wrap each ear separately in
cloth or paper, pack carefully in a box,
staling paper in any remaining space to
prevent the ears from shaking about in
transit
Each box should contain the shipper's
name and address. Ship by freight,
prepaid, to the Seerefary of the Com
mission, 414 McCague Building, Omaha,

SHRINKAGE OF CORN IN THE
CRIB.
At the Iowa Station, in 1898, says
the Nebraska Farmer, 7,000 pounds of
corn were husked and stored in a crib on
October 19. The crib was built upon
the platform of a pair of scales, so that
weighings could be made at any time
without moving the corn or destroying
the normal conditions of storing. The
weights taken weekly during an entire
year ahow some variations due to the
weather. The shrinkage during the year
was 9 per cent of the original weight for
the first three months, 5 4-7 per cent for
the second, 3 1-7 per cent for the third,
and 2 5-7 per cent for the last three
months. The loss for the entire period
amounted to 1,430 pounds, or a little
more than 20 per cent In this case a
bushel of corn weighing 80 pounds when
stored, weighed 64 pounds at the end of
the year; or if calculated to weigh 75
pounds when put into the crib, weighed
00 pounds after storing one year. In a
similar experiment the following year
the total loss in weight for the entire
period was 635 pounds, or a shrinkage of
9 2-7 per cent At the close of this sec
ond experiment the kernels contained
12.14 per cent of water, and the cob 25JJ2
percent The corn used in this test was
in a much drier condition than the corn
used the preceding year, and the season
had a much larger rainfall. These con
ditions largely account for the smaller
shrinkage.
The following from the Omaha World
Herald will be of interest to Mr. Black
man's acquaintances here and to the old
settlers who knew the country around
Council Bluffs in the early days: "E. E.
Blackman, archaelogist of the Nebraska
State Historical society, returned to
Council Bluffs this morning, after explor
ing the vicinity of Henton's station, with
N. J. Miller of this city as guide. For
four miles along the bluff fronting the
Missouri river valley, and for twp and
a half miles back into the hills evidences
were found that the place was once a
great gathering place for the red men.
On the summits of some of the highest
hills sun dance circles' were found sixty
feet in diamater and five feet or more in
depth. A number of Indian mounds
were discovered, a considerable collec
tion of Indian pottery and a number of
fine specimens of stone and flint imple
ments. The discoveries made by Dr.
Blackman are not sufficient to enable
him to make a positive identification of
the people to whom the relics belonged.
The fact that no implements or other
traces of white men were found is taken
to indicate that the relics belong to a
period long -before the whites invaded
this territory. By far the most interest
ing result of the trip, however, was the
discovery of the relics of Father Allis,
who came to Nebraska as missionary to
the Pawnee Indians in 183a Mr. Black
man spent a night under the hospitable
roof of Otis E. Allis, son of Father Allis.
the oldest living white boy born in Ne
braska, and the third child of white
blood born in that state. Father Allis
built the mission house at Bellevue in
the days when Council Bluffs was Kanes
ville and Omaha had but one log cabin,
near the present site of the union depot
Mr. Blackman considers his trip very
successful. He found a ledge of lime
rock cropping out of the bluffs, carrying
flint nodules. This is a continuation of
the Nehawka flint quarries in Nebraska.
Great advance ia being made right
along in the medical profession. Word
came from Sioux City, Iowa, the other
day that William Noes, a farmer living
near Pomeroy, had left the Samaritan
hospital for home without' a stomach,
yet feeling well and weighing fifteen
pounds more than he did three weeka
ago. Noas began to have trouble with
hia stomach four months ago, and finally
Um physicians told him be was suffering
from cancer. He was dying of atarva
tion when he arrived at the hospital.
The stomach was removed so as to leave
a flaring end to the gullet, while the
lower end was cut off where it narrows
to merge into the inteetinea. When the
stomach had been removed a funnel
shaped part attached to the eaophagaa

Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Wade of Co
lumbus, came over last Friday to attend
the funeral of M. J. Fox. Mr. Wade
returned home Saturday evening. Mrs.
Wade visited over Sunday with her sis
ters Meedamea Mike Murphy and Wm.
Schram Miss Winterbotham handed
in her resignation to the school board
last week as teacher in the fifth grade.
The school board at a meeting held
Monday evening employed Miss Belle
Schick of Seward to fill vacancy. David
City Banner.
The Lanoota Journal gives a very
flattering notice relative to E. W. Nel
son, son-in-law of Mr. aad Mra.O. D.
Butler or Una city, part or wtucn we.
quote as follows: "Eton W. Nelson,
deputy clerk of the Nebraska supreme
court, has resigned to accept the man
agement of the Fitzgerald Dry Goods
company of this city. Hia resignation ia
to take effect November 15 or as soon
thereafter as it will be convenient for
him to leave his present position. This
important official and business change
came as a surprise to Mr. Nelson's
friends. He had not thought of nuking
a change, but the Fitzgerald company
made him such a tempting offer that he
could not resist it The offer came in
recognition of Mr. Nelson's well known
business ability. Although still a very
young man, he has held some of the
most responsible positions under the
state government of Nebraska. He was
first appointed to a position in the office
of Governor Holcomb, a place which he
left to accept the office of deputy com
missioner of publio lands and buildings
under J. V. Wolfe. Before the close of
his term of appointment he was chosen
by the supreme court as deputy clerk.
In all of these places of honor and trust
he has made friends among all factions
and parties. Unlike many who have
held political office he has won friends
rather than made enemies. This he did
by his courteous and kind treatment of
all with whom he came in contact
These qualities and his remarkable suc
cess in business affairs naturally makes
his services in demand among business
men, and the Fitzgerald company, one
of the largest of its kind in the state, is
considered fortunate in securing him
for manager. Mr. Nelson was born in
Massachusetts, but has lived in Nebras
ka since early childhood. Hia father,
Orlando Nelson, moved to Colfax coun
ty, Nebraska, in 1878 and has resided
there ever since. Mr. Elon Nelson was
married in 1897 to Mies Sybil I. Butler
of Columbus, Neb, and they have two
children. Hia popularity was attested
by a magnificent reception by state
house friends and others on his return
to Lincoln with his bride.''
Morgan Watkins, one of the old set
tlers of the city, died at his home in the
west part of town, Saturday afternoon.
Mr. Watkins has been troubled for
two and a half years with a cancer on
the right leg and November of last year
underwent an operation, but the discs no
returned, and for eleven weeka before
death relieved him he had been: a great
sufferer.
Mr. Watkina was born March 20, 1843,
in Roffa Beaufort, South Wales. He was
married forty years ago next Christmas,
in Green Bryn Mawr, South Wales, to
Miss Susan Beynolds, aad to them have
been born eleven children, only three of
whom are living. Besides the wife, his
three daaghtera, Mrs. Harvey Miles,
Miss Alice end Miss Elizabeth, eurvive
He also leaves one sister who
ides in Ohio.
Mr. Watkina came to Columbus in
1870 and has lived here continually ever
since. He waa in nature of a modest
retiring disposition, had no enemies and
every acquaintance waa a true friend.
He waa a kind, indulgent father and hus
band and a christian in spirit and deed.
Since early ia the year of 1888, ap to the
time of his last illness Mr. Watkina waa
sexton for the Columbus cemetery asso
ciation. Funeral services ware held Monday
afternoon at the home, Elder James Haas
of Omaha, of the Latter Day Sainte
church, preaching the sermon and con
ducting the service later at the grave.
The funeral was attended by a large
number of friends, aajong them being
the teachers aad pupils of the Third
ward school, where Mies Alice Watkina
haa beea a t eschar for aevaral years.

You are undoubtedly aware of the fact, that there
is a movement contemplated by several business
houses to do a strictly cash business. The theory
looks plausible, but after, an experience of 28 years in
selling merchandise of various kinds, we have come
to the conclusion that it ispracUcally an impossibili
ty to adhere strictly to the cash system. In order to
treat all alike we have adopted the following system:
In order to meet all competition, we have reduced
the price on all our goods. In other words, we will
sell our goods at the same price or lower than the so
called cash .stores. This will give the customer that
pays cash the same inducement to trade here as at
the so-called cash stores.
As we are. originators (not followers) we will make
our own price list. For the convenience of such custo
mers who prefer to pay their bill once a week or on the
1st of each monthwe will make the same low price as
to the cash customer. We consider thirty days the
same as cash. v.
An itemized statement of amount purchased will
be clieer fully given tot all who desire. To our Farmer
Friends we wish to say, do hot be alarmed, we expect
to take care of you in the future as in the past.
After careful consideration we have adopted the
above system as outlined and we believe it will
meet the approval of all. We provide for our cash
customers, also our customers who pay once a week
or on the 1st of each month, also for our Farmer cus
tomers. The only ones we do not provide for are the
slow paying customers, for tJie reason thai goods sold
on a cash basis cannot be sold on long time.
We expect to handle the same high grade of goods
that we always have. Do not. be deceived by being
offered at some stores inferior goods as the result of
price cutting. Call for standard goods that have a
reputation. We expect to devote our whole time in
furnishing tlie- people of Columbus and vicinity with
the best the market affords in Groceries, Crockery,
Lamps and Fancy Goods. Our system for handling
your business and delivering your purchases are un
surpassed, in this city. 0
