The Lincoln Journal rises in
its place and makes these cold and
unfeeling remarks in regard to a
former Lincoln county pop states
man who has been buried in oblivion
for many moons: "The state relief
commission undoubtedly stands be
tween the charitable and noble
hearted people of the land who are
anxious to feed the hungry and
clothe the naked, and a small army
of cormorants and "beats" who
desire to make hay galore while the
philr."thropic sun shines. Can it
be that this is the offense for which
it is held up with so much violence
by sundry members of the legisla
ture? One instinctively recalls the
facts that leaked out four years
ago, when it was discovered that
some thrifty members ot the pop
persuasion had been drawing so a
day at Lincoln and their thrift'
temporary widows at home had been
drawing provisions, clothing, seed
grain and what not from the county
allotments for the destitute. Is it
because the state and county com
mission have cut their eye teeth,
and cannot be so easily imposed
upon this year, that so much violent
wrath is excited?"
The Red Cloud Chief urges the
citizens of that city to pull for a
beet sugar factory and says: The
factory would be of incalculable
benefit to this city and county, fur
nishing as it would a fine home
market for the best raising product
and the most prolific money getting
that we have ever attempted to pro
duce in Webster county. This fact
has been easily proven by Anthony
Schaefer, who raised 200 tons of
beets in 1S94 making a clear profit
of $900. If such an amount of
money can be cleared on 30 acres
of land in a drouth season what
could be obtained in a favorable
season? Mr. Schaefer had to pay
freight to Norfolk. If the factory
should be located in Red Cloud, the
freight cost would be obviated.

SACALINE vs. SACALINE.
In a letter dated Feb. 1st, 1895,
A. Blanc & Co., seedsmen of Phila
delphia, write as follows: "In a
cold state like Nebraska it would
be far more desirable to grow saca
line from roots than from seed.
The seed must be raised indoor or
in hot beds, in. good rich soil, kept
constantly moist. Cover the seed
thinly. In about forty days the
plants will be large enough to trans
plant into flats or boxes and held
until danger of frost is over when
they could be planted outside.
Roots, however, can be planted out
at any time. Our roots have just
reached us after a voyage of three
months by way of Canadian Pacific
railroad, and while many of them
were frozen solid, they are all sound
and already starting to grow when
put in warmth. Roots can be set
out four feet apart each way and
will make a growth of three to four
feet the first few months, when they
can be cut down and wilPgrow
again, a growtn or twelve teet a
year can only be expected after the
plants have been established three
or four years. Purchasers should
be cautioned against a cheap seed
of another Polygorum (P. Cuspida
turn), offered a a low price, and
even given away, and which cattle

Upon the other hand J. M. Rice,
of Winview, Okla., writes as fol
lows in regard to the new vegetable
wonder: "Sacaliue is now offered
for the first time. 1 expect to try
it, as I do most of the lorage plants.
But I want to caution farmers as
to the unthoughted planting of it.
Just read what is claimed for it and
then if you think it is the thing for
your farm try it on a small scale.
But notice that it is claimed that
neither drouths, floods nor fire will
destrov it; that the roots take
possession of the ground; grows
fourteen feet high, and that cattle
cannot trample it out. It these
things be true, and that it spreads
by its roots, might it not be a pest
which you could not get rid of?
Then if it produces 180 tons of
forage per acre, are you prepared
r handling even ouc acre of it.
of course know nothing of it.
Almost every seedsman has seeds
and roots for sale and their descrip
tions are almost identical, scarcely
any variation except in details. So
far as I have been able to gather,
it has not been tested in this coun
try except as an ornamental plant.
I think seedsmen should have given,
it a thorough test before offering
One of our subscribers, says the
Wood River Interests, informs us
that he has purchased one root of
the new fangled plant "sacaline"
for 25 cents and will plant it in the
corner of his lot and await develop
ments. The firm selling the plant
speaks of it, in their advertisement,
as solving the forage question.
They say that "cattle like it better
than clover or alfalfa, it yields from
ninety to one hundred and eighty
tons per acre, it flourishes during
the severest drouth, or in the worst
of floods and on the poorest soil.
that floods will uot destroy it, and
cattle canot trample it out." In our
boyhood days we heard of an old
farmer who planted a new fangled
pumpkin seed on his farm jvnd be
fore the season was over the pump
kins and the vines chased him off
the place. Dear experience has
taught us to be rather incredulous,
and we have serious misgivings as
to this new plant, lest it should in
some way get the upper hand of its
owner ana betore lie wouia oe

NEBRASKA'S CROP ALL. RIGHT.
Statistics show that from 1869 to
1894. inclusive, being a period of
twenty-six years, Nebraska has had
eighteen good crops, four short
crops and four failures, as seen by
the table printed below. It is also
claimed by people who have made
a study of this subject, that history
repeats itself in this as in many
other things; and that as a general
rule, similar conditions succeed
themselves in cycles of twenty years
or every fifth of a century.
On this basis the Patriot submits
the following table compiled from
the most reliable crop statistics of
this state, beginning with 1869, as
Pa-t 5th Century.

the first six years of the present
5th century tallies-exactly with the
corresponding dates of twenty years
before. If this repetition of history
is kept up, as it has been in the

Premiums for speed above the re

Builders, contractors and designers

satisfaction to be drawn from that
fact and from the. appreciation of

The Rockford. Ill
Gazette, speaking for its city as a
Nebraska relief center, advises its
philanthropic citizens that the best
thing to send to that suffering com
monwealth is money. Money
doesn't get side-tracked for two
weeks and spoil. Monej gets there
in forty-eight hours, and if proper
recipients arc "selected, it escapes
the manipulation of an overworked
or incompetent relief bureau.

has been true since the fall of man,
he gives twice who gives quickly.
C. J. Ernfet. of the land depart
ment ot the Burlington railwaj-,
writes the State Journal in this
strain: "If you want to establish
a first-class reputation as a weather
prophet and at the same time give
great courage to your multitude of
readers, I advise you. as one who
has seen twentj-seven years in
Nebraska, and all that time inter
ested in farming operations, both
officially and personally, to predict
that before June 15th, 1895, the
farmers cultivating the low bottom
lands in southeastern Nebraska
will complain that the corn is rot
ting in the ground, while other
farmers all over Nebraska will
be smiling at the abundance of
The most prosperous agricultural
communities in America to-day arc
the Mormon, in Utah, says the
Irrigation Age, and their prosperity
is largely due to the fact that their
twenty-acre farms are made to pro
duce almost everthing required for
the food and clothing of the family.
The south has passed through the
great depression better than the
north, and chiefly because since the
failure of cotton speculation twenty
years ago, the efforts of the south
ern farmers, statesman and news
paper have been devoted to build
ing up a diversified agriculture, and
with great success. Sustenance of
the family, in all directions, from
the farm should be the watchword.
The small farm is to-day the most
profitable th? whole world over.
For many years epileptic colonies
have existed in Europe, and they
have worked well. The state of
New York will now make the ex
periment of establishing one in this
country. In Livingston count' a
large farm, formerly belonging to
the Shaker brethren, has been
bought. The work on the place
will be done by the afflicted ones
themselves. The lot of the epileptic
is a peculiarly sad one. Excepting
only the minutes while his hapless
seizures last, he is a man among
men, intelligent as his fellows and
as capable, with all the emotions
and aspirations of his race. But
because of the fatal spasms he is in
a measure set apart from man. The
attacks are liable to come any time,
so that he is never safe to go from
home alone. The farm will make
a home for the unfortunate men,
women and children whom fate has
thus cursed. In one group of cot
tages will dwell the men; in another
on a different part of the grounds,
the women, while a home and a
graded school will also be estab
lished for the children. All that
comfort and clean, cheerful sur
roundings can do for epileptics will
be done there, and meanwhile medi
cal science will make an especial
study of their cases with a view to
discovering whether there is not
some means of cure. Both charity
and paj patients will be provided
for, the charity patients first, it is
said, which is rather reversing the
