lYes,I"m from Red Willow county,"
k Ale ook. Nob , merchant to a
group at the Palmer nijjfht,''
quotes the Chicngo Tribune. ''Crops?
Well, rather. My coui.ty is 250 miles
west cf the Missouri. Some years it
doesn't rain out there, then we raise
pops. This year it did rain, and we
r-iised everything: else. ' The pop crop
id the only total failure in Nebraska
this year.
" Well our county t overs
about 4W,0K) acres. Odt of that we
cultivate 215,000 ;icres say 4i per
cent. Thia year there were 100,000
aero in rinali grain W per cent of
wh?at. Much of it already threshed
dhow thirty fivo bushel to the acre.
It wl.l averagru twenty-live buabeld to
tlic acie over the whoie county; that
means 2,000,000 bushels fer Red Wil
low county.
"There are nearly a hundred coun
ties in the state, o I look on lo0,000,
000 bushels of wheat for Nebraska
those are Kustis' figures as low. And
the quality is phenomenal. The
threshers leport it as weighing out
sixty pounds to the measured bushel.
"Hut these Chicago farmers do not
understand where, it all ccmes from.
The fact is we aie cutting two crops
in one Last year whs a drv one.
Matty fields sown to wheat in tne
spring were not tho't worth cutting,
they were ncvi.-r touched. This year
the same land, seeded b.v what little
grain grew last year, produced amaz
ing yields of wheat
"Olo customer of mine (this is no
fairy iale his name is Jiminio Doyle)
lives a mile north of town. He rerlted
a piece of li-nd to put into corn this
year that had wheat on it last. By
the time .limmie got his own land
cropped it was tco late to plant corn
on the rented land, so he never
touched it. Well, sir, theyoungster's
wheat came up like Russian thistles
on an alkali b ttom, and that fellow
cut and threshed 10,000 bushels of
wheat on that eighty acres, and never
even ban-owed the land. It cost hi in
"0 bushels for rent, and he had a
clean rake off of 750 bushe ls of wheat
.for nothing, and last Friday they were
bidding 70 cents at McCook for No. 2,
or better. There are a number of
"volunteer" wheat stories floating
out there, hut this one I know per
sonally to be true. ' It's n wonder
we've got wheat to burn is it?"

How an Annate a r Detective Outwitted an

Who Knew or a ltlcb Deposit of Ore
That Had Never Been Reported.
"I never was iu Mexico but once, and
then I went as an amateur defective,"
said the mining expert. "It hap-. mxl
this way : A friend of mine in Pi.t :urg
had his confidential clerk to whom he
had iven an opiortun;.ty by tru: tiu;

where he was, just over the L r

aut down there to ln.v him o - ;
iu someway ho had dcrr't-d the '
ive in tbm, for tl'.ey ofieu ac-ou
professional air ia spite of their
efforts to the contrary.
"I knew that my only chr.if c v r.M
be to go and live there as n fr ,':
from justice myself aud sd sx-;;m; Li
entire confidence. I decidid to be :i
forger. I tojk up my abole in tl.
wretched little town and iunbor.t i
hours was so sick of it that I wa.s o:i I'.c
point of throwing up the whole scht .-i.-and
going back. But my friend l:r.:
done me many a favor in bushir-ss, nu1
in decency I cwc:l hinf some return Oi
courses I did not make the slk!; i.iaii'f
acquaintance. 1 was dett-nr: 1 lie
should make mine. He held off 1 r v
cral days, evidently thinking I vr.i.i a
detective and expecting me to mrk'j, as
they had always done, approaches to
him. But I kept away, as if I were sus
picious of him. The fellow wus dread
fully homesick, and I don't wonder, iv
that place. He iu;cd to go out on tin
desert and look at the stars and fctripes
across the border and wish ho dared gc
back. He evidently began to think he
was worso imprisoned than if ho had
been in some penitentiary.
"Finally one. day he ventured to ad
dress rue. I replied very coldly to hi
salutation, which only made him the
more anxious to know me. He b'j-';ui tc
inquire into my business and find out
what I had come for. I gave him uospo
cial satisfaction until one day I 6aid that
I had come for a change of air. With tin
same kind of air in the United States f
few miles away this was, of course, ab
surd, and he concluded, as I intended
he should, that I was there for the same
reason he was, but I plied him with nc
questions. Finally, ia his impatience
he burst out with:

pretenso longer? I Lnow and you know
that we are both on the same errand
down here. It is true, as you say, wt

So wo confessed to each other, he tell

knew already, and 1 telling him all
about my imaginary iniquity.
"That was as far as we got foi
awhile, but it tlid him good. For it left
him free to talk. He was very home
sick, and we both acknowledged that it
would bo almost plcasanter to give our
selves up and serve out our terms thaii
to stay there the rest of our lives. I one
or twice hinted that I was ready to dc
so. But he wasn't, and I knew that uc
ordinary inducement would get bin;
where he could be- taken. But he had
no opportunity of investing his money.
and his cupidity naturally forced him
to see that he had made a very tioor bar
gain if all he was to get out of his ras
cality wa3 to sit and spend it nl nvly in
that little hole cf a Mexican town.
"I had already interested hint with
my stories of fortunes that had lieen

told him I knew of one rich deposit
which I had never reported to any cue,

get some inoro to put with it. 1 told
him it was in an out of the way local

could get there without detection if we
would go on fx)t or burro back and
avoid the railroads. Finally he con
cluded that he was willing to take the
risk if I would and go and look at the
property. The rest was easy. I wrote
at once for an officer to be ready to head
us off while crossing the Colorado river.
We had traveled some distance without
being challenged or exciting suspicion.
I threw off my pretended apprehension.

take it easy. This proved contagious,
and I saw that I would have no difficul

designated to the officers.
"We were riding slowly along in the
hot sun of the desert when suddenly
from behind a butte two men on horses
shot out and rode swiftly toward us and
were upon us almost before we had time
to realize it. Although 1 had expected
them, I confess I was taken by surprise
it was done so quickly and success
fully. Of course they handcuffed me as
well as him. But before we had reached
the railroad station they had released
me, and he understood how he had been
fooled. I expected he would burst out
in and reproaches, csjiecially
when thev confiscated what Lo had left
of his stealings. But he didn't In fact,
it was so great rt nlief that Le no

The only question is what can be done with it. Its out of style
and worn. Maybe it needs new lining, or should be stylishly
trimmed. The old coat would make a beautiful full sweep cape,
and capes are just the thing this season. There's that eld fur gar

Why, that will nxike a beautiful collarette; ju9t the thing for fall
