A Great Combination.
Hogs, Corn, Tankage, and Money.
But you will not get all tho money
from your hogs unless you use tank
age. Read tho following from a firm
you all know:
North Platte, Neb., May 18, 1910.
Mr. R. N. Lamb, City,
Believing that tankago to bo good
food for hogs, last fall wo purchased
some from you to feed a bunch of hogs.
Tho corn wo were feeding them was
exceedingly poor, very soft and chaffy
and not marketable.
Wo fed this soft corn with ground
wheat of a poor quality, too poor for
market purposes, along with tho tank
ago of about a quarter pound per head
May state that the gain on these
hogs was remarkable and far above
our expectations. They made us big
money, and realized us a good price
for our poor grado of corn, which was
unmarketable and wo feel that by us
ing tho tankage as wo did tho gain was
a great deal larger than It would have
been without It, and wo are well paid
for our investment In tankage.
Yours very truly,
BRATT & GOODMAN,
By E. R. Goodman.
Most experimental farms will tell
you that it will pay to feed Tankage
to pigs from the time they are weaned
until they go on tho market, why not
get all the money from your hogs.
45 percent porteln tankage at $2.25
por cwt. $23.00 per ton.
We still have some cane seed left.

of Modern War
By Cpt.in F. A. MITCHELL
"I don't see how they're going to
make stories about this Mg war In Eu
rope," said tho G. A. R. veteran, "when
It's all over. What kind of a war Is
It, nnywny7 A hundred thousnnd men
ninrch up against a lino of trenches do
fended by rapid flro guns, electric
wires nnd grenades; G0.000 or 70,000
of them are either killed or wounded,
while tho rest capture a few yards of
territory or are driven back without
having accomplished anything. You
might as well extract romance from
tho Chicago stockyards on killing day."
Tho remark was made to a party of
men sitting on chairs tilted against tho
outside of a country store.
"Where's tho romance in tho war
you lit In?" asked an old fnnuor, tak
ing his pipe out of his mouth nnd look
ing nt the Q. A. R. man doubtfully.
"What- is it? Why, that war was
brimful of It It was spread over a
big country; thero wero comparatively
few battles; a small amount of tnkln
fortifications and all tho rest was ro
mance. I don't mean girl romance,
though thero was plenty of that I
mean adventure romance. I was con
cerned In one of 'em myself. Wo was
layln' quiet In camp, down in Tennes
see, ono summer's evening, slngln',
'When this cruel wnr Is over,' or 'Lo
rena' or some other of tho romantic
wnr songs of thnt time, when my cap
tain cunio along in a hurry, shoutlu,
'Any locomotive engineer nmong you
boys?' 1 said I'd been n fireman on a
locomotivo and coukl run a machlno
tol'ablo well. Ho yanked mo off to tho
general, who asked mo a few questions,
then told mo that tho brldgo guard
across tho Tennesseo river, twenty
miles above us, had been attacked and
unless he could get re-enforcements
thero right off tho bridge would bo
taken and burned. This would break
our line of communications and wo
might have to give up a big stretch of
country we occupied, no wanted nn
engineer to take n regiment through to
tho rescue. The officer commanding
the guard had telegraphed that ho
couldn't hold out much longer, when
tho wlro was cut
"Tho train wns mado up and 400
men wero hurrying Into tho enrs. A,
locomotivo was being fired up, nnd I
Jumped aboard and took the throttle.
"Well, now, mebbo there wns nothln
adventurous in that ride! The colonel
commanding the regiment nnd tho ad
jutant wero in tho cab with me, and
It wasn't long before they wero mado
aware of tho fact that wo wero run
ning a gantlet. It wns tho peoplo
along the roud who woro trying to
wreck us that mado It amusing.
Rounding a curve, I saw about half
the length of tho train ahead a tio
wedged In under tho rail. It was too
lato to stop, but I reversed and wait
ed. There was a thump, but tho en
gine stuck to tho track. Thero wero
seven out of ten chances that wo would
have been ditched and most of us In
the cab killed or maimed.
"The next nmuslng occurrcnco was
the rattle of bullets against the cab.
Nobody was hurt, but you'd better be
Hovo every man ducked, not excepting
"But they didn't got tho excitement
out of it that I did. I was straining
my eyes into tho darkness abend with
my hand on tho throttle, expecting
every minute to run up ngalnst an ob
struction. Tho shndow of a tree was
a log felled u cross tho track; tho shad
ow of a stump was a tlo on tho rails.
And sometimes tho obstructions woro
real. Onco I pulled up within a few
feet of a log that had been rolled
squaro across tho rails. Another tlmo
I slowed up before reaching a switch
and found that it had been left open
to run us up against a brick bouso.
You sec, if they hadn't really been
tryln' to wreck us there wouldn't 'a'
boon nny excitement
"And If thero hadn't been nny neces
sity of golu nt a rapid gait thero
wouldn't 'a' been any fun neither. If
we didn't get thero in tlmo to save tho
brldgo it meant tho retreat of tho
whole army. So you seo 1 was obliged
to let her out danger or no danger,
for If I didn't wo wouldn't bo in time,
and wo might as well bo wrecked as
too late. Besides, if I'd wanted to go
slow tho colonel, who was at .my el
bow, wouldn't havo allowed It
"Tho last obstruction was a post put
up on end as a cattle guard only a
few miles from tho bridge. Seeing
that I couldn't stop In time, I put on
steam and snapped it off like a twig.
"After passing this wo heard firing
nnd know that tho brldgo was not yet
lost I blew a long blast on tho wills
tlo and heard a distant cheer. When
wo camo near the brldgo tho colonel
ordered mo to stop tho train In n cut
Tho men got out and, forming on .ono
sldo of tho cut on high ground, charg
ed down on tho attacking forco and
drove them off.
"Now, that's what I call the roiuauc
of war the adventurous romnnee.
When I got back to enmp tho general
sent for me, nnd I thought ho wns go
ing to hug mo. I never saw a man
look so tickled In my Ufa I'd saved
hundreds of square miles of territory.
"What chance has nny soldier to do
anything like that In this big Euro
pean slaughter business? I don't
olamo fellows for not volunteering in
such n war. It's like volunteering for
certain denth without any of tho ex
citement thnt was so fascinating In tho
racket wo had from '01 to 'CI."
"now about them fellers flghtln' In
tho sky?" asked a listener.
Tho G. A. R. man gnvo no reply.
Amos Chldlcigh sat nt his desk one
hot July morning mopping his brow.
Then ho said to himself:
"Why should I stay In this hot town
when I can Just as well go whero It's
cool? Toinklns can run tho business
as well as I. I don't enro whether
thero Is nny profit for a couple of
months or not Why should I? My
securities pay mo $10,000 a year, nnd
that's enough for a lono bnchelor with
out nny other income."
Tho only objection to Mr. Chldlclgh's
going to the country was that ho wns
too old to Join In with tho young per
sons ho would meet nnd ho wouldn't
know what to do with himself. Ho
was forty-two years old. However, ho
mnde up his mind to get a sniff of sea
air, and, leaving his business lu tho
hands of his chief clerk, ho got Into
Ills car nnd nfter n hundred miles' spin
pulled up In front of n summer hotel
overlooking the ocean.
As he went up the steps ho noticed n
lady sitting on tho piazza whoso face
was familiar to him.
"I do believe," ho said to himself,
"that's Del Smith."
Del Smith had been a "flamo" of
Chldlclgh's twenty yenrs before. If
Indeed it wero sho ho need not bo lone
ly. He might get somo nmusemcnt by
remaining Incog, nnd making her ac
quaintance as n stranger. Going to tho
hotel office, n clerk placed tho register
before him, and ho signed his iinmo so
thnt It looked llko A. Chlndoy.
Tho next dny ho was sitting on tho
piazza near tho lady ho supposed to bo
his old flame, sho being lu company
with nn elderly woman who looked to
Chldlcigh very much ns he remember
ed her mother twenty yenrs before.
They wero regretting not being ablo
to hire nn nuto for a ride.
"Ladles," said Chldlcigh, "I have an
auto which Is at your service, and I
will be happy to drlvo you wherever
you wish to go."
After somo parleying tho offer was
accepted, and tho trio spent a plensant
afternoon visiting various points of In
terest in the vicinity. That was tho
beginning of nn ncqunlntnnco or, If
tho lady was Chldlclgh's old flame, tho
renownl of one. On the bench tho next
morning sho snt nlono her mother pre
ferred to rcmnln in her room and
Chldlcigh Joined her. IIo did not ask
her name, but ho propounded somo
leading questions, tho replies to which
convinced him thnt ho had been mis
taken In tho person.
He wns disappointed in this, but tho
lady gave him every encouragement to
be friendly, telling him thnt sho and
her mother knew no ono nt tho hotel
and would bo very glad to seo ns much
of him ns he liked during their stay.
To this Chldlelgh declared that ho was
In tho samo lonely condition.
Notwithstanding tho replies to his
lending questions Chldlelgh could not
divest himself of the feeling thnt tho
lady wns Adelo Smith. Going to the
hotel register, ho hunted up the name,
but not finding n recent nrrlvnl of
Smiths ho asked tho clerk for Informa
tion, nnd ho showed him tho nnme,
"Mrs. Turnlco nnd dnughter." This
confounded tho invcstlgntor, but ho
would not give It up thnt tho daughter
was Del Smith.
However, Chldlelgh found nssocla
tlon with Miss Turnlco more nnd more
pleasant every dny. IIo took her and
her mother out In his enr every dny
that the mother would go, and when
she declined his lnvltntlon ho took tho
Ono dny when they wero driving
nlono together they left tho car and
sat on a duno overlooking tho ocenn.
Chldlelgh felt that they wero drawn
nenrer together from tho fact that they
woro far from nny ono elso nnd tho
expnnso of sky and water above and
beforo them wero so vnst
"You remind me," ho said to her, "of
n girl I knew when I wns a youngster.
I wns twenty-two; sho was eighteen.
I wns drawn to her, but nt that ago
thero are so many girls for tho boys
nnd so many boys for tho girls that
one Is not Inclined to chooso nnd pick.
I wish now I could bo tho ago I was
then. I would provldo ngnlnst my
present solitary condition."
"I. too, have such a memory. I
know u young mnn whom I considered
tho pink of perfection. I wished ho
would mnke love to mo, but ho didn't
You men havo a great advantngo over

"Do you remember his name?"
"Do you remember the girl's name?"
"Let us mnko an exchange."
"Very well; Bho wns Allele Smith."
"no wns Amos Chedlclgh."
Amos turned nnd looked nt her fix

"Do you know that I am Amos died,
