Crop Outlook In Nebraska
In an, interview with J. C. McCorkle,
the veteran Box Butte county Ituul
man, lie statcdtto the Herald reporter
that he has made three trips in the
last fout weeks over the Burlington and
Union Pacific and by auto through' the
eastern mid southern parts ot the state.
From Broken Bow to Omaha on the
Burlington the crops are above the av
erage. The Platte valley bus a good
crop of co. n. On an auto trip from
Grand Island to the Republican river
he saw good crops, around Hastings
the crops being particulary fine. From
Holdredge west on the Burlington the
crops are very badly damaged by the
drouth. From Bertrand east they are
fine. His opinion is that Nebraska
will have far above the average in
the money value of crops this yenr -
In Box Butte county he states that
the corn and potatoes are the best in
twenty-four years. Box Butte county
and surrounding country have prac
tically the only potatoes in the state,
the eastern portions having a potato
failure this year. In Box Butte coun
ty the early small grain was hurt by
the dry June weather but there is so&ie
very fine spring and winter wheat, oats
and barley where properly farmed.

Land Office Notes
A case of much interest to school
teachers who have homesteads was re
cently decided by the secretary of the
interior. Effie M. Walker, in Hyde
couuty, South Dakota, was teaching
school about four miles from her borne
stead and living on the homestead from
Friday .to Monday of each week. She
had built a comfortable house on the
tract; had broken five acres which was
tinder cultivation, and had furnished
the house.
Tbe entry was commutted and she
sold the land. Later a special agent
of the government recommended can
cellation of the proof on account of in
sufficient evidence and cultivation.
The general land office ordered the
proof cancelled but after a review ol
the case the secretary of the interior
ordered the proof sustained.

Genuine Crude Oil Burner.
Owing to the cheapness of
crude oil and the unlimited sup
ply of the same, many attempts
have been made to invent a
crude oil bui'ner for cook stoves,
ranges and furnaces. Other at
tachments have been invented
for the use of refined oil, which
is more expensive, but the only
successful attachment for the
use of crude oil is the "O. K."
Crude Oil burner, manufactured
by M. H. Spere of Grand Island
and sold in Alliance by W. M,
Wilson. 201 J3ox Butte avenue.
Mr. opere was m Alliance a
few days , this week and gave the
Hdrald reporter some interesting
Information about thiS" invention.
It can be used i.n any stove,
range or furnace without drilling
holes or otherwise defacing the
same' in any way. Crude .oil can
be furnished to customers in Al
liance at six cents per gallon,
which by using the "O. K."
burner will make a saving of
from thirty to fifty per cent in
the cost of fuel, either for bak
ing or heating in any stove.
This saving will be of great in
terest to the men who have the
fuel bills to pay, while the. wo
men will, of course, bo more
than pleased with the cleanli
ness, there being no ashes, soot
or smoke, and with the ease with
which the fire is started and reg
ulated. Baking is brought to perfec
tion with this burner. Mr. Spere
brought to The Herald office
yesterday a loaf of bread which
had been baked in thirty-five
minutes by Mrs. W. H. Zehrung,
for whom he had just installed a
burner. The bread was .certain
ly baked "to the queenT taste",
and would cause any woman to
become enthusiastic over the
work of the burner.
To give an idea how
burners take where they have
been demonstrated, Mr. Spere
showed us a Si, 000 order for
them, recently received at Des
Moines, which he said was his
first order in Iowa.
Persons who are interested
are invited to call at "Wilson's
store, opposite The Herald of
fice, and see the "O. K." demon
