The news from Europe is of an exciting character, and the pros pect seems good for considerable of 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.

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- ing. 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. corn on In the 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 nrmtn T71i n f- c OP m t n rrl r wne rnni LUlli) II JwW.ll 11) IJ UO Will 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 soil. 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- r MILLINERY AT. -Boston Store- -jfe 3fe Wc have just unpacked a fine line of Ladies Trimmed Hats, Sailors, Children's Bonnets, Walking Hats and Tatn O'Shanters that will be sold at prices which are sure to suit the purchaser, We extend a cordial invitation to all ladies to come and look at this line before Easter Sunday.

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. W. A, Gregg, Willard, Neb., April 20th, 1897. 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 winter.
