WEEVIL IN GRAIN
AT EAGLE CAUSES
Some Alarm Expressed Over Extent
of Ravages of Pest in South
ern Half of Nebraska.
A somewhat alarming story of wee
vil in wheat was told to Chairman
Taylor of the railway commission
Friday afternoon by Representative
II. K. Frantz who is a banker at
Eagle. He was accompanied by Sec
retary H. E. Hart of the department
of trade and commerce to the rail
way commission office where he ex
hibited a glass jar of wheat screen
ings from an elevator owned by Geb.
Trunkenbolz of Eagle. '
Twenty thousand bushels of wheat
in this elevator is said to be more or
less infected with the grain weevil
pest. A farmers' organization has an

elevator in the same town with 10,
000 bushels of wheat similarly af
fected. Mr. Frantz exhibited the sample in
a glass jar on behalf of both eleva
tors, asked the railway commission to
try to get a supply of freight cars for
the moving of grain. He said the ele
vators are full of grain, the grain
full of weevil and thirty cars are
needed. Ten cars immediately would
do some good.
Chairman Taylor of the commis
sion called officials at Missouri Pa
cific railroad offices and was assur
ed an effort would be made to fur
nish cars, altho the outlook for grain
cars is exceedingly dark.
Mr, Frantz said only six cars had
been furnished in seven weeks at
Eagle. The Trunkenbolz elevator is
being run day and night for the pur
pose of moving wheat and running it
over screens and thru blowers In the
hope that some of the damage being
done by the pest may be reduced. If
cars can be had so that some grain
can be shipped the balance of the
grain can be manipulated in the ele
vator and probably the pest destroy
ed or its ravages stopped.
Causes Much Uneasiness
The grain weevil is causing much
uneasiness. Whether it exists in a
large portion of the state or is
spreading is a matter for concern to
all who store grain. The university
experiment station of Nebraska is
sued a bulletin which says:
"In the fall and early winter of
1921, from the middle of September
to the middle of December it was un
usually injurious . to stored wheat,
both in farm granaries and in the
country elevators, especially over
southeast Nebraska west to Tied Wil
low, eastern Frontier, western Daw
son and southeastern Custer coun
ties and north to Sarpy, Saunders
and other counties. In northeastern)
Nebraska it did considerable injury
to stored oats at the same time."
The sample of wheat from Eagle
contained a tiny beetle probably the
sawtoothed grain beetle, which is de
scribed by the university bulletin as
a small reddish brown beetle about
one-tenth of an inch long. The ca
delle beetle is similar but is about
one third of an inch long. Both eat
the embryo of 'grain, lay their eggs
therein and the egg produces a small
worm which lives until the following
spring so there is only one crop a

INJURED LADY -POORLY
The parties who were injured
Thursday afternoon in the auto acci
dent on the O street road near Eagle
are still in serious shape. ,The first
reports as to the parties being Mr.
and Mrs. Jerome St. John seem to
have been in error as the. parties with
Mr. Roscoe Harshman were Mr. and
Mrs. Chris Schoemaker of Nehawka.
Mrs. Schoemaker was still uncon
scious last night and is being cared
for at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Ed
Betts at Eagle until such time as
she can be removed. Her injuries
seem quite serious and all indica
tions point to a fracture of the skull.

Prom Saturdays Dally.
Yesterday the Cass county com
missioners. Fred H. Gorder of Weep
ing Water, C. ""P. Harris of Union,
and George L. Farley of this city,
were in Lincoln where they spent
some time with State Engineer Geo.
F. Johnson and the department of
public works, discussing the work
on the "O" street road near Eagle
which is a part of the new federal
highway running through Lancas
ter, Cass and Otoe counties.
The good roads movement in this
county which was started a few years
ago when C. F. Vallery was named
as highway commissioner, is result
ing in the formation of a line of in
tersecting highways that will afford
all parts of the county a fine means
of travel and with the increasing
number of autos and trucks the roads
are being very much in demand.
Those who have traveled extens
ively over different parts of the
country are loud in their praise of
the federal road through the eastern
portion of this state and which trav
els through Cass, Otoe, Nemaha and
Richardson Counties, and which, it is
claimed, is one of the best dirt roads
in the west. From this first road
there are constantly other lines be
ing added, that puts all sections of
the county in close touch. The state
highway from Murray west to -the
Lancaster county line is also kept up
in fine shape and the road gives the
residents of the central portion of
the county a fine way of traveling
and with the completion of the im
provements on the O street road the
residents of the extreme southern
portion of the county will have an
equally fine" road. The road from this
city to Louisville is also reeciving a
part of the attention of the good
roads boosters and this makes all
parts of the county supplied with the
best kind of roads.
The cost of the roads has been
much more than used to be required
to keep up the- roads , but there few
people in the county that would be
content any more to put up with the
narrow roads that were generally
without the use of a drag and rough
and hard to travel on. It is a part of
modern life that' certainly should be
appreciated by the residents of the
country districts as adding to their
convenience asd comfort.
