STRYKER AND NELSON HELD
Unable to Satisfy Court in Alfalfa
York. Neb., Oct. 1. In tho ca,d of
tho state of Nebraska against George
Stryker, formorly of York, now a resi
dent of North Platte, an alfalfa mill
promoter, and Samuol C. Nelson, for
merly of Grand Island, a resident of
Kansas City, engaged in tho promo
tion and building of alfalfa mills,
charged by the York Alfalfa Meal and
Milling company with embezzlement
of several thousand dollars, was tried
before tho county court. Eight months
ago George Stryker came to York,
calling on old acquaintances, and rep
resenting to them that ho had the
backing or n strong financial institu
tion then with headquarters at Oma
ha, and later at Kansas City, who
were financing and building alfalfa
mills at different points in Kansas
and Nebraska. York was one of the
good points for nn alfalfa mill, and It
was not much trouble to interest farm
ers and business men, who subscribed
for stock, paying cash, which they
claim has disappeared and nothing to
show for it. The evidence given In
the trial was that something like $7,
000 worth of stock of tho York Alfalfa
Meal and Milling company was dis
posed of, and that at the present time
there Is about $700 In tho treasury
and no alfalfa mill at York.

SOILS NOT WEARING OUT
professor Whitney Declares They Are
More Fertile Than They Ever Were.
Washington, Oct. 4. Declaring that
ihe world's soils are today a greater
itorehoube of fertility than they over
were, Professor Milton Whitney, chjef
3f tho soils bureau In the department
of agriculture. In a bulletin Just is
sued, takes a stand In direct oppo
sition to tho view of many writers
that boIIs are gradually wearing out.
Professor Whitney Btntes that a
itudy of tho record for the past forty
years will show an average of crops
Increasing, particularly in tho older
6tates, where tho soil has beon worked
the longest. There has been, ho stntes,
an Increase of two bushels in the av
erage yield of wheat during tho pnst
forty years, although tho average yield
of corn has decreased one-half a bushel.
"Tho soils of Now England havo ma
terially Increased In yields of corn
nnd wheat during forty years," says
tho professor, "but what Jb more start
ling they aro producing considerably
heavier yields than the soJIs of the
Mississippi river states."
