THE BEE: OMAHA, "WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1913.
9 LAND RUSH IS KEEPING UP Outlook is that it Will Bo Heavier Than Ever at End of Week. PEOPLE FROM EVERYWHERE Krirlr Kverr State In the Union la neprraented and Mirny Women Are Noted Among; Thnr Seeklnit Forma. number of tho live stock men from tha Iowa Agricultural collet. It will carry specimens of the different breeds of cnt tls and the prize winners at tho last State fair held In Iowa. Milwaukee Develops Fertile Areas of the New Northwest The opportunity that Uncle 6am has Fiven persons to register for a chance to draw & tract of land on the North Platte forest "Reserve and tho military re ova tion noar Valentine continues to prove a bonanza for the railroads running out In the direction of the land. Instead of travel dropping off It continues to In crease, while the railroad officials rake In 'the cash. For Instance, Into North Platte, one of the registration points. Monday the Union Paclflo hanrtV 1,700 persons, probably nlne-tehths of them going to register. Twenty-two extra coaches were prosaed Into service. Burned grew to such an extent that It became necessary to run special from Grand Island to North Tlatta, and this train carried S76 land seekers gathered tip from points along ,the line and off the branches. The Union Paclflo caught twenty-seven JCansahs and ninety from Missouri, all turned over nt Hastings by the Missouri Pacific anil ured to the reserve by a prospect of netting 640 acres of land for praetlcallr nothing. That the rush Is lllcelj- to continue and grow during the balance of the week Is lndloated by the fact that tho colonization department of the Union Paclflo Is receiving letters by the thousand, the writers all asking about tha land that Is to be disposed of by the lottery plan. Monday 600 letters were reoelved and all but twenty-five were from parties 'east of the Missouri river. The deoartment has received more than o.OOO letters from parties who wanted in formation relative to the land and how to get hold of a tract of It Traffic Very Henry. Tho Burlington travel has Increased to buch an extent that it Is forced to run Its train out of Omaha In the evening In two sections. Monday nlght these two trains carried twenty-four coaches from Omaha and four more were attached at Ittncoln. These two trains alone landed a trifle less than l.X) persons at Broken Bow Monday night. All other trains from the east and west were heavily loaded, and the Burlington figures that Monday alono It took not less than 2,609 persons Intp Broken Bow. The average fare per person Is said to have been al most $S each way, making something over $20,000 for the day's business grow ing out of the land lottery. The Union Pacific Is In receipt of a wire from J. Cummins, ItH advertising ngent, dated at noon, and he states that the total registration at Norh Platte has passed the 20,000 mark. Cummins has jcone out to help passengers get straight ened out. In sending word to headquar ters he says that all parts of tho United States aro represented In the mad rush for land. Monday a woman from. Ven- dleton, Qrc... registered, and fifteen mln utesJater a, man from New York took a shot on a chance for a farm. Up to date the tallest, man to register Is W. Q, Hlnes from Wilson, Kan. He Is six feet ten Inches and able to look oVer the jop of -tfio highest, sand hlUfbn the reserve. '. . Mnnr Women Registering;. Women who register at North Platte arc at about the 'ratio of one to sixteen. Most qf them arc spinsters, though there are a fair sprinkling of widows, and girls who havo Just passed their twenty-flrst birthday. Tho men who sell gasoline are reaping a harvest. The autos arriving at North Platto average close to 300 per day, and one dealer In gasoline Monday sold 800 gallons and at a slightly advanced, price. It la said that tho hotels, rooming houses and restaurant are giving the land seek ers a square deal and are not pushing up (rices, though ojt the eating places the quality and quantity of food has been cut to some extent This, however, Is not making much difference, for generally as soon as people register they catch the first train out. The Union Pacific has massed a large number of coaches .and engines on the sidings, and as soon as there are 'enough people loaded to Justify the movement a special pulls out for the east. 'Oysters on Menu on Every Train Wltll the Great Western this Is oyster Meek,' 'Cities and towns have 1 their Ak-Sar-Bens, their Potato, Sauergraut and other days., but now comes along the Great Western and puts on a whole week of oyaterB. In making thin oyster week, at every meal on, every diner on the Great West ern system, oysters have a prominent pce on the menij. They are served raw and (n; vf'ry style known to the culinary art, Thjjv too, the priced are reasonable Just' about the same as are Charged in first class restaurants tlia country over. NORTHWESTERN RUNNING .BEEF GROWERS' SPECIAL It Is officially announced that con struction work Is about completed on the extensions of the Chicago, Milwaukee A St. Paul railway from Hllger In Fergus county.

The soil Is of practically the same char acter as tho rest of tho Judith basin. Immense crops of all the small grains are now being successfully'BroTm upon the benches. The small valleys are es pcrlally adapted to the raising of alfalfa and garden crops. Missouri Pacific Booming the Land in Southern States While tho cry for land Is at Its height, the Missouri Paclflo has commenced a campaign looking to getting people Into the south. The work Is belrjg carried on under the direction of D. E. King, tho industrial commissioner of the road, located In St. Louis. Just now ho is turning his attention to Louisiana and regarding the country, ho has this to say: "Convenient markets having been opened by tho extension of new lines of railroad and the building of cities in the midst of rapidly-growing Industrines, a. change has been wrought In Louisiana's agricultural practices. Diversified farm ing has been Introduced and It Is fast succeeding the old plantation system. Intelligent effort applied to a few acres In several crops will get more profit from tho soli than enormous labor applied to a large number of acres In one or two crops. Tho small farmer, In other words, has shown that under the new conditions ho can make more money on his Invest ment than tho large planter." rim? the lematnAer itt ! nh.r !..

It will be accompanied by a bat ttry of live stock expert lecturers and a Texan is Earnestly Seeking a Northern Widow for Helpmate Parenthlcally added to a letter reoelved by a. Bee want-ad advertiser on Mon day from a person In Texas Is ' an Interesting request that a brother of the writer wlsnerfc northern widow to share hie lot. . . "My brother ts here." the request goes on "and when I told him I was writing to 'a northern man, ho said, 'tell him I want a pretty northern widow.' My brother Is a physician, but hb Is going to quit practicing and take up stock farming, intending to handle thorough bred stuff. He s handsome and SS years of age." Then the letter returns to the subject up between the writer and the adver tiser and Is abruptly broken oft again with: "Pshaw! my brother Is butting In again. He says that you may consider It a Joko about the widow, but lie Is really In earnest." The receiver of the letter states that while he Is not one of Daniel Cupid's buzzing emissaries, his Inborn propensity Is to help humanity's cause wherever he can and that he will, gladly receive letters from comely, prepossessing widow or good, nice appearing unmarried ladles who might be Interested In the Texan Letters should be addressed H.
