SASTSa AT THE CHUECHES.
The morning service at the Luth
eran church was lengthy and very
instructive and interesting. Flow
ers were much in evidence and the
choir furnished a class ot music
that was greatly appreciated by
the large and ience present.
The services at the Catholic
church, particularly at the morning
service, were very pretty, the fioral
decorations being profuse. An ex
ceptionally fine programme of dif
ficult Easter music was rendered
by the choir. Several of the mem
bers sang solos in a very accept
At the Presbyterian church there
was a very liberal display of plants
and flowers, the altar presenting a
very pretty appearance. The choir
rendered a fine programme of music
and Rev. Verner delivered two dis
courses which were pronounced by
the audience as exceptionaUy able
The display of flowers at the
Methodist church was liberal and
very prettily arranged around the
altax. In the rendition of the musi
cal part of the service the choir did
well and added much to the enjoy
ment of the glad day. The sermon
by the pastor was a masterly one.
In the evening the Sunday school ,

The Easter services at the Epis
copal church were very pretty and j
the large audience present was i
treated to good music and excellent

HOW EAE3HHG PAYS.
In a recent interview with one of
Buffalo county's most prosperous
farmers the fact was stated that
when all farmers paid more alten
tion to deversitying crops and
raising live stock to consume every
thing they raise, prosperity would
be more usual in our iarmins" com
munities. This calls to mind an
other remark made by a city man
who had extensive farmins" inter
ests. He said: -T raise nothing to
sell except hogs and cattle. My
corn is not ten-cent corn, but has
paid me handsomely, thanks to the
condition of the live stock market.
Along this line, the Hub finds an
item in the Gretna Reporter that is
of more than usual interest, and
knocks out the theory that ten-cent
corn means impoverished farmers.
"C. H. Humphry shipped 25 head
of fatted cows to the South Omaha
market Wednesday, which average
1060 pounds each and sold for 3.85
per cwt., or a total of 1020.25, or
40. SI each. Mr. Humphrey bought
these cattle when the average
weight was 900 pounds and cost an
average of 2.50 per cwt., or about
22.50 each, thus the increase of each
cow was $19.50 or a total of $432.50;
from this shoeM be deducted the
price of fifty bu. of corn fed to each
cow at 10 cents per bushel or $125,
leaving him a set profit of $375.50.
To this should be added one hog
for each cow that fattened from the
droppings of the cattle. These
hogs now weigh about 300 lbs and
are worth $12.00 each, at the pres
ent price, 4 cents per pound. The
hogs weighed about 100 lbs. when
put with the cows and at that time
were worth 3 cents per pound or
$3.00 oer hundred each, this leaving
net profit on pork of $9.00 each or
dollars which addea to his pront
on the cattle, making the net profit
581.50, less than the price of mar
keting which would not exceed
S1.50. The feeding of the cattle
required little, if any more labor
than would the hauling of the corn
to market. This was done within
the past six months and Humphrey
has five bead of calces worth 6.00
each that were dropped by some of
this bunch of cows, and yet there
are people who say there is no
money in feeding cattle. Humphrey
put 25 head of cattle on the market
some time aaro with about the same 1
result, and still has 22 head that he
is feeding for the June market. It
should be added that the corn fed
to these cattle was nearly all soft
corn and unmarketable."
