Hot, Woll H Would Say So!
How would you like to sweat over a roaring hot
fire in a kitchen stove, while the remainder of the fam
ily could get away where there was a breath of air?
Say, do you net think the wife and mother and
the daughter also should have something comfortable
to cook a meal on?
Our Perfection and Puritan oil stoves solve this
problem. See Joe Banning for one! He can deliver it
at ence and give the wife, mother and daughter an equal
show with the rest of the family.

Rains of Past Fortnight Prove of
Great Benefit Fruit Prospects
Lincoln, June P. Improved con
tions cf small grain, general comple
tion of corn planting and cultivation
and satisfactory soil and moisture
conditions with the exception of a
few north central counties, are re
ported in the Nebraska crop summary
issued by the federal and state bu
reaus of markets and crop estimates.
The alfalfa harvest also is under way,
according to the summary.
"Winter wheat has improved, but
cannot recover completely from the
damage caused by the previous dry,
unfavorable conditions," says the re
port. "Present indications point to
an average yield in production. The
crop is heading throughout the east
ern two-thirds of the wheat belt, and
the present moisture supply is suffi
cient to finish the crop. a3 dry weath
er is preferable during the last two
weeks of the filling period.
Spring grains have made marked
improvement since the recent rains.
continues the report, and present
prospects are highly favorable, ex
cept in a few of the northeastern
counties. Boyd, Holt, western Knox
and Keya Paha counties of north!
central Nebraska are still in need of
moisture, according to the summary.
"The planting of corn is completed
and cultivation is in progress in the
southeastern quarter of the state,"
continues the report. "Some of the
counties have larger acreages th,an
anticipated, due to the abandoned
winter wheat. The crop is advanced
fully as far as it was a year ago this

is satisfactory, and plans are being
made for the marketing of the early
commercial crops. Sugar beets were
somewhat injured by high winds pre
vious to the .recent rains.
"The harvest of the first crop of
alfalfa started early in the week. The
crop ranges from fair to excellent
and averages considerably better
than the first crop of last season."

KEEPS AN EYE ON
THE FIRE DANGERS
Fire Chief Sandin Has No Off Days
In Regard to Keeping Down
Any Fire Dangers.
Dr. O. Sandin, chief of the Tlatts
mouth fire department, was out to
day looking over the condition of
ihe back doors of the business sec
tion and the interiors of the places
where there might lurk any menace
to safety In the way of rubbish or
dirt that might cause fires.
The work of Chief Sandin in this
line is to be commended as he has
conducted an unceasing campaign in
his term of office, to see that all pos
sible danger was eliminated" in the
way of fire traps a,nd piles of rub
bish that used to be found in the
rear of many of the business houses
but with "Doc" on the job he has
cleaned up all of these places and
sees that they are kept as clean as
is posible to do. The result has been
that there has been few fire losses
in the main part of the city and with
a constant program of watchfulness
there will be even less.
I Tho itifn certalnlv fppl well
pleased that they have a man that
takes the keen interest that Dr. San
din does in the work of the fire de
i partment and the care of the clean
liness of the city.
