Pollard lor Crain Standardization, i
Congressman Pollard appeared before
the interestate and foreign commerce
committee of the house today in behalf
of his bill providing for the standardiz
ing of grain for export only.
The main point brought out by Mr. ;
Pollard during a speech of an hour and
a nuartcr before the committee was '
that a large per cent of the grain
1 shipped ubroad is graded too high, for (
j the reason that when it reaches its de- j
I stination it is found in mouldy, musty (
and in some cases in a rotten condition. !
Three years ago out of 5,000,000 bush- j
els of grain examined by United States '
'experts 11 percent was found damaged, i
I Two years ago the same quantity of j
grain being inspected ran up as 19 peri
K"i'cent. Last year, however, the ptr-!

What is Home Without a Piano?
Not many years ago the pianoforte was looked
on by the great majority of people as a luxury. To
day it is regarded as nothinj? short of a necessity in
every American home. The refininjr influence of
music is so potent a factor in the character develop
ment of a growing1 child, that no conscientious par
ent can -save for the gravest reasons, ncjrlcct mak
ing the addition of a piano to the furr.iture of a
household. While we sell the higher priced instru
ments, it is our constant aim to furnish thoroughly
honest and reliable pianos on very easy terms to per
sons in moderate circumstances. Investigation will
not go amiss, as you will find to your profit if you
are in the market for a piano. Come in and get ac
quainted and we can talk the matter over, We
are praclical Piano Tuners.

Writes of the Big Subscription.
Rally Now in Progress.
Dear Editor: I cannot impress too
strongly upon your readers the impor
tance of enterintr the biir automobile-
pian0 C()Iltest carIy Never ,,efore to
my knowledge nas an automobile of
such splendid value been offered as a
free premium when tho competition
was so limited. It was our intention
that fifteen country publications would
enter this contest, but at the time of
opening there ae only twelve. This
restricts the competition just that much
more, and I can safely say to your
readers that the winner of this auto
mobile will find his task an unusually
The utility of the automobile upon,
the farm is becoming so well known
that I anticipate the time, not very far
hence, when they will be in quite as
popular use as rubber tired buggy, or
any other kind of a farm rig. Any
thing that Baves time for the farmer is
worth practically what it costs regard
less of price, and farmers who have
automobiles, having paid for them any
where from $1,500 to $2,500 claim in '
unqualified terms that the investment
was a good one. That being the case
it certainly seems to me that any farm
ers, his wife, son or daughter, or the
whole family can afford to get right out
and put in two months' effort in an at
tempt to win this machine. It should
also be given due consideration that the
one who fails to win the automobile,
yet having the second highest number
of votes will win a piano and is fully
described in the advertisement.
And I wish to impress further upon
your readers that in taking subscrip
tions for the Nebraska Farmer and
the News-Herald the work will be
exceedingly agreeable. Every resident
within thirty miles of Plattsmouth
should be a regular reader of your
aplendid publication, and the same is
true of the Nebraska Farmer. I
hope that contestants will begin work
at once as there is ho question that the
ones who get into the game in earnest,
at once will be the ones having the best
opportunity to win. The contest closes
April 3 which makes the time for work
limited. S. R. McKelvie.
