The United States railroad ad
ministration has issued a booklet en
titled "Nebraska" descriptive of the
state. It is labeled as "Agricultur
al Series No. 12." It carries a state
ment from Governor McKelvie and
Acting Dean W. AV. Burr of the
agricultural college telling of the
opportunities and possibilities in
this state. It is said the informa
tion was compiled br the Nebraska
agircultural college, the Santa Fe,
he Burlington, Great 'Western,
Rock Island, Union Tacific, Missouri
Pacific. Omaha and Northwestern
railroads. The excuse for its issue
found in the statement that
prosperous communities mean pros
perous railroads." The purpose of
he booklet is to direct ambitious
and industrious home makers. A
lot of statistics concerning the state
are given showing the productive
ness and products of the state. Un-
er a picture of a four thousand
bushel pile of corn is a legend
showing that the corn grew on non-
irrigated land in Duval county
(probably Deuel county.) On the
opposite page is a Platte river pic-
urc showing Scottsbluff in the
back ground, under which Is a state
ment that "North Platte, Nebras
ka" is near Scottsbluff. A number
of interesting pictures of Nebraska
scenes are shown. Because tne
pamphlet was issued to direct home
seekers much of its contents is de-
oted to the western and northwest
ern section of the state. Under a
icture of a sugar beet field the
tatement is made that sugar beet
ands are the highest priced lands in
he state. Under a picture of a
sunflower patch the statement is
iade that "the sunflower is an ex
cellent silage crop in the higher altl-
des." The feed value of this en-
lage is said to be equal to corn.
Although Journal want-ads cost
but little the results they bring ar
wonderful. Try them.
