FINE TRIP TO
POINTS IN CEN
Charles Cook and Family Enjoy a
Trip to Beaver City, Bloom
ington and Other Points.
Charles Cook the genial farmer
residing just south of the city,
has just returned home from a
most delightful automobile trip,
which he and his family took out
into the weslerii part of the slate
a few days ago. They were ac
companied on the journey, which
was made in the Ford car of Mr.
Cook, by his brother, (leorge Cook
of Alo. The first afternoon out
they made some seventy miles,
and on the second day completed
the journey out to Heaver City, a
distance of 21 miles. Here they
stopped for a visit at the home of
another brother, John Cook, who
is the owner of a tine half seclion
some seven miles south of Heaver
City. Mr. Cook states that the
crops in that section are im
mense and the wheat, of which
there is a large crop, is a great
deal of it still unlhreshed, and
the corn is booming, as the sea-
sou there has been one of the
best enjoyed for some years.
From Heaver City the party
proceeded to Hlooming Ion, when
(hey spent the night at the honn
of Frank loud, a brother-in-law
of Mr. Cook's, and looked over tin
farming country in the Repub
lican valley, which is booming'
this year, being filled to overflow
ing with bounteous crops of al
kinds of grain and corn.
While en route the party visitei
Harvard, the scene of the tornadi
of a few days ago, and viewed tin
wreckage made by the storm. Mr
Cook stated that the stories abou
it not raining in Furnas county
were without foundation, as they
had one storm there where nim
inches of rain fell in a few hours
and as a result, of the storm nin
bridges were swept away .from
over the Republican river and
large number of callle and hor
were drowned. While in tin
we-l Mr. Cook ami family visitei
for a short lime with the (ieorgi
Howard and Jacob Itummell lam
lies near Heaver Citv.
