New York, March 19. An official of
the conference committee of railroad
managers announced at 12: l". a. m.
that the railroad strike was off.
A few minutes after the announce
ment was made the railroad managers
went from the Grand Central terminal
to the conference hotel and were
joined immediately by the mediators.
They refused to make any statement
on the way to the meeting room.

T!i above facsimile of check represents the land-lords share
from the 1910 crop raised on 100 acres of Chase County Nebraska
land. Mr. Peter M. jcrgensen, of Avoca, Nebraska, bought this land
from two yars ato, for $20.00 per acre. He had the land broken
out dt a cost of 4I2.50 pcracre. This made the land including break
ing cost Mi. Jorgenscn $2250.00. It was rented for the year 1910
on tin- terms that the owner "was to receive one-fourth of the crop
delivered to market, this check does not represent the total rent by
aboit $50.00 and means that the crop grown on the 1 00 acres brought
$2600.00 or $500.00 more than the original cost of the land.
This is not an'exception, we have dozen of Chase County land
owners doing this same thing year after year.

grain received and shipped and report

of this kind is hard to beat. The net
result will probably be two ware

neither one of any good to the farm
