Greenwood District Cleaned l:p.
Probably the largest purchase of
broom corn ever made in one day in
Nebraska was made by Clinton R.
Lee, in Cass county, Friday. This
district is known by broom corn buyers
as the Greenwood district. The fol
lowing crops were purchased by Mr.
Lee for the Lee Broom and Duster
company that day:

Total 64 $2,440 00
Making a total of about 253. tons,
the value of which at the lowest
wholesale price, is fully $10,000. The
quality of broom corn raised in this
district is line and green and equal to
Illinois central, which is considered
the best grown. There is not a single
crop left iu the county and only a few
scattering crops of poor quality in the
state. From all appearances the Ne
braska farmer who raises a choice crop
of broom corn this summer will get a
good round price for it this fall, as
there has never been a time in live
years when the crop was bought up as
cleaa as it is today. The price paid
was $50 a ton for the best quality.

could not bo traced fuither.
Tho sherilT returned homo and
Sprieck remained all night. This
morning the sherilT returned to South
Omaha, expecting to go with Mr.
Sprieck and recover tho stolen prop
erty. A clue lias been obtained to too
whereabouts of tho thief who may
also bo apprehended very soon.
Sheriff Wheeler deserves to bo com

which he has dono in this caso.
EAGLE, Neb , pril IS. Tho Eagle
creamery company started up for bus
iness Saturday afternoon, and although
but two days notice had been given.
nearly 1,000 puunds of milk wis de
livered to tho station, and the machin
ery started in full blast.
At a meeting of th'j stockholders,
held during the afternoon, the b Mild,
ing and machinery were accepted
from tho conti actors, and tho organ

retary and (Ioorgr lleitt"r, Sr., treas

a'id Sam McClintic will constitute tho
board of directors.
Tho prospects for this new plant are
very bright and will, if properly man
aged and supported, prove a bom for
both farmers and business men o
Eagle and vicinity. Walter Peterson
was selected as manager of the factory.

throughout the state.
A local politician informs tho writer
that considerable interest is being
manifested over the county ooromis-
sionership for the west end. 'Tis said
that Hayes would not bo averse to
succeed himself, depending upon the
splendid record he has made as a
commissioner to appeal to the voters
to retain a man known to bo efficient
rather than try an untrieM man. Each
precinct in the district has a candidate
for Hayes' chair, and unless there is a
drop of some candidate the comings
convention will witness a pretty con
test. Tis rumored that "Old -Tipton"
has three men anxious for the place,
the most prominent being mentioned
and urged by his friends is the name
of Jonathan Adam.
"Feelers" are being thrown out to
find just how we west-enders are feel
ing in regard to the county legisla
tive ticket. 'Tis mentioned that the
young statesman of Nehawka would
like a promotion. Tn that event there
would be a contest between the west-
enders and Plattsimuth for a repre
sentative. Again, there is a little
talk of Judge Newell being placed for
state senator, while Jesse Root's friends
are not a bit less timid in dem tndins'
a hearing. And thus it goes, some
sav a new man should b3 brought out'.
Your correspondent could go on and
tell of many others, but hold, bath he
not spoken of enough for this once ?
