The news from Europe is of an
exciting character, and the pros

a scrap between little Greece and
Turkey. If the other European
powers stand back they will see one
of the bloodiest fights that countrv
has witnessed for some time. The
news has had a decided effect on
the markets in this country, es
pecially in wheat.
American exports of iron and
steel in 1S96 were 125 per cent
greater than than they were in
1895, the amount having- been 205.-
367 tons last year as against 89,000
tons the year before. This extra
ordinary increase is significant be
cause it was not the result of any
unusual condition here or elsewhere
but followed as a result of legiti
mate trade enterprise and competi
tion. FAST TIME

CONSERVATIVE FARM METHODS.
Editor Tribune- -It is said that
with every returning spring "hope
springs eternal in the breast of the
farmers." With the farmers of
northeast Lincoln county there
seems to be no great exception to
the general rule.
Not for several years has the
ground been ladened with more
.moisture than at present. There
has been a notable absence of high
drJ winds which has charac
terized and prevailed in Nebraska
in the last few years.
However, crops are not made or
assured by a propitious spring open-
In some cases quite the contrary.
We have had very good and bounti
ful corn crops on very short stalks.
and sometimes little or no
large and tall corn stalks.
first case the fore part of the sea-
son was what is .characterized as
being dry and the latter part of the
of the season a plentiful supply of
moisture fell, forcing a good yield
of corn on small stalks. In the
second case the fore part of the sea
son was wet, growing a large stalk
and the latter part of the season
was dry, there not falling enough
moisture to. make but little corn
and in some cases no corn at all.
Tlie same may be said of small

ing a good crop of wheat and oats
has been blighted or cut short by a
lack of necessary moisture at the
time seed was forming and ma
turing. On the "other hand late
sowing, poor stand, bad cultiva
tion the cereal has made a fair crop
by a maximum amount of rain fall
at the time the seed was forming
and maturing. Other years only
the best prepared and cultivated
land have given any fair yield or
return of the seed sown.
These facts lead us to but one
conclusion and it is this: That if
the farmer would be a successful
crop grower in Lincoln county he
must be able to keep the crop grow-
r until the seed is matured. To
reduce to a minimum crop failure,
we are told to irrigate, fertilize and
intensively cultivate the. surface
This latter method is to conserve
the moisture and Increase the depth
of unused moisture from year to
year, storing the moisture down
deep in the soil to be used in a year
of possible drouth. Irrigation.
fertilization and intensive soil cul
ture are old methods in theory and
practice. Not all lauds are sit
uated or suited tQtheabove methods
on as large a scale of farming as
farmers haye'beeu in thehabit of cul
tivating in the last few years with
out a very large out lay to the indi
vidual farmer on the first start.
Too much ground has been taken
to cultivate in many cases. Acres
with scarcly reasonable limit have
been planted and while yields have
been most bountiful in good sea-
Wc have just unpacked a fine line of Ladies Trimmed
Hats, Sailors, Children's Bonnets, Walking Hats and Tatn

We are still selling goods at the prices quoted in our last ad
been the general rule. Smaller
farms and better improved methods
of farming are gaining favor. The
more conservative farmers are cul
tivating smaller acres and using
more thorough and diversified meth
ods of general farming. A thor
ough reading of agricultural papers
and attending and taking part in
farmers' institutes will be found to
be very helpful to the one who is
trying to make farming a success.
Oh, but farming is old, says one.
So are other professions' ana-'the
men who make their respective call
ing a success are the men who
study their business in detail.
I once heard an old settler say
hat a man could work his arms off
and then die poor and I am inclined
to believe he was about right It
akes management along with phys
ical strength in any country to
make farming pay, and western Ne
braska is not different from other
places in this respect.

John L. Sturgeon, a farmer living
just on the edge of Columbus mar
keted 1,500 head of sheep last Fri
day, which he had fed just sixty
days and which netted him a profit
of $1,600. or a trifle over $1 clear
per head. Mr. Sturgeon thinks
this is a good way to dispose of 10-
cent corn and $3 hay. Many others
are feeding stock in Platte county
and it is thought almost impossible
o lose money on the transaction,
t is said that one heavy feeder
near Columbus will make several
thousand dollars on stock this
