Corn ia king and alfalfa is queen,
and side by side they shall sit upon
their royal throne in Nebraska. The
king has been very lonely in times
past, but with his royal consort at his
side, housekeeping will move along as
never before throughout his magnifi
cent domain. Kearney Hub.
Never in the history of this or any
other state were meUns, tomatoes and
fruits and vegetables of all kinds as
cheap at this time of year. The whole
country is stocked and canned goods

The Rockefellers never cared much
about showing off to the public. The
whole family would rather stay at

A whip-poor-will this morning flew
against the wire in front of Schwake's
drug store and broke its wing. It was

A man told us the other day that his
corn was filling out at the end of the
ears so fast the grains were being I
shoved off the end of the cob, and that
he could not buy hogs enough to eat up
the corn that was going to waste by
falling off the cob. Another man was
complaining because so many ears
crossed each other, and, when the
wind blew, it created a sawing motion
grinding meal faster than his chickens,
turkeys and ducks could eat it.
Another man says the corn is more
modest than he ever saw it before, be
cause it hangs down as though it was
ashamed to look up. Now, we do not
vouch for any of the above stories, but
merely jot them down to show our
readers how our farmers feel about the
great corn crop of 1S95. Nebraska

almost rivals the corn" and never was

One of the attractive features of the
coming state fair will be the alfalfa
palace, which is just being completed.
The building which will contain the
exhibit of this comparatively new in
dustry in Nebraska will be 36x36 feet,
two stories in hight and ornamented
with a tower. The palace will be lo
cated near the alfalfa farm anp
not far from the fisheries building.
The building will be canstructed
chiefly of steel and iron, and will be
thatched with alfalfa. Eight cars of

Cass county products ought to be
represented there. In an aggregation
of the best products of our state, Cass
county's be3t products would shine

the middle of September. But it will
take from six to nine months before

A Lincoln man tells of a farmer near
Deweese who anticipated the partial
drouth of this year and last spring con
ceived a plan by which to plant and
grow hiscropindependentof uncertain
rainfall. He first bored a well, then
put up a good strong windmill and
constructed a large pond from which
to irrigate the land below, when he
bad decided to plant his crop. Then
he prepared his ground, about three
acres in all, and planted it to onions.
The drouth came, but in nothing
daunted, he regularly turned the water
of the pond upon his field of onions.
A few days ago, off the three acres, he
harvested the enormous crop of 3,000
bushels. Lincoln Journal.
If the bolters are representative
democrats, who do they represent? No

TnE convention of Nebraska bolt

If one believed the reports the re
publicans give of the conduct of each
side in the late primaries they must be
a rotten set. One story goes that a
very prominent citizen of the precinct

how that nnmerous men who are not
republicans were induced to participate
in the primary. Each party is estopped
from complaining on the other because
they know there is evidence against
them. It is a low state of political

very distressing. I made inquiry as
tothe nature of the disease and learned
that I had a some what aggravated case
of Hemorrhoids or Files. Was told of
several remedies and used them as di
rected, obtaining thereby some tem
porary relief. Not being satisfied with
such slight relief 1 cast about for a per
manent cure; when a friend directed
the use of the famous Magnet Tilk

from pain followed, and soon a com
