tady.N.T. OUR ILLUSTRATION.
Our illustration is from a photograph
of a six-year-old cherry orchard grown
by tbs Crete Nurseries. This orchard
was photographed in May last at the
age of six years. The trees bad already
yielded in a single crop from thirty to
forty-five quart of cherries per tree.
The trees were planted 14x10, giving
about 200 trees per acre. That particu
lar season the fruit sold for three dol-
( lars per bushel, and the profits are
easily reckoned. It will be noticed in
the cultivation of this orchard that it
has been cultivated with disc and har
row, and grown tn an orchard without
other crops. In this, manner most of
the moisture that falls during the win
ter season la conserved and sinks deeply
into the subsoil, and part of it remains
until other seasons when the rainfall is
deficient The varieties are Early Rich
mond, English Morello, and Wragg.
These have been found in Nebraska
very productive, The view is from the
north side of the farm, and looks across
a ravine over into the old apple orchard
planted in 1873.

Richmond, Mo., March 24. Crowds

the scene of Saturday night's terrible
tragedy, all day yesterday. Many also
visited the Rainwater farm. Rain
water had the tragedy carefully
planned. Three months ago he said to
a neighbor, W. D. Lloyd, that if his
wife and her people did not take care
he would "clean out the whole crowd."
The murderer spared his blood rela
tions, killing all others ou the place
except his father-in-law, William Ard

Rainwater and his wife was over re

were not well-to-do, but were nerer in
The murderer and his victims were
buried yesterday morning. No services
were held over the remains of the as
sassin, either at the house or the
grave, and not a doscn people followed
his body to the cemetery.
Mr Rainwater, her mother, Mrs.
Ardman, her daughter, Ethel Gantry,
and her brother, John Tburman, were
interred side by side. The funeral pro

PROPERTY OF CRETE NURSERIES.
Commercial Orcharding in Nebraska.
It is conceded that western Iowa and
northwestern Missouri, eastern Nebras
ka and Kansas have aoil and climate
better suited for commercial orcharding
than any other portion of the United
States. The soils are rich, the subsoils
deep and fertile, the fruit is compara
tively free from the most troublesome
insect pests, and the fruit is of the
finest quality, brighter in color and
more productive in yield than in the
greater portion of the United States,
With this thought in view some large
orchards have been planted in this state.
A few of them may be enumerated:
Isaac Pollard & Son of Cass county
have the largest bearing apple orchard
in the state, 150 acres.
' J. II. Masters of Otoe county, onf of
the first to engage in fruit culture,
planting his first orchard in 1856, has
an orchard of 80 acres. 1
Hon. J, Sterling Morton, in the same
county, has large orchard interests, ag
gregating nearly 80 acres.
E. T. Hartley of Lancaster county has
100 acres in orchard; also a 160-acre
orchard was planted by Carpenter St,
Qage of Jefferson county.
O. D. Howe of Pawnee county, 80
W. J. Hesser of Cass county, 70 acres.
Elias Beaver of Richardson county, 80
Youngers k Co. of Fillmore county,
O. W. Gregg of Folk county, 55 acres.
W. P, Jenkins of Valley county, 40
Wm. McCormick has a very large
area in small fruits and 30 acres of ap
ple orchard near Blair.
Mr. Hart of near Fontanelle has 30
acres of apple orchard.
Marshall Bros, of Arlington have
about 50 acres of orchard and 15 acres
of small fruit.

fc m. wicks. j
Miss Cherrytou took the loss of her
jewels more calmly than most people
would have done, probably because it
was her nature to take events quietly
and comfortably, just as they came.
She also had implicit faith in the po
lice and never doubted the speedy re
covery of the jewels. .
But, strange to say, she seemed real
ly concerned about the loss of her pheas
ants. She said repeatedly to Jack,
"How very provoking!" and at last
made up ber mind that Mr. Wicks
ought to go back.
Now, the truth of the matter was
that Miss Cherryton disliked dogs ex
tremely. She was afraid of them, and
it was only on account of her great fond
ness for Sylvia that in a wok moment
she had allowed Mr. Wicks to be sent
for, and the death of the pheasants gave
her a tolerably good excuse for Mr.
Wicks' dismissal. '
"Miss Druce will be dreadfully dis
appointed, " pleaded Jack, who saw in
his aunt's decision an opportunity for
making some atonement to Sylvia for
having punished Mr. Wicks. "There is,
I believe, great truth in the proverb,
Love me, love my dog,' " he said con
solingly to himself.
"Hylvia, dear," said Miss' Cherrvton
a little later, "I am afraid Mr. Wicks
is too young to be here, and and I am
sorry to say that I think it would per
haps be better if ho went back. "
"Oh, Miss Cherryton!" exclaimed
Sylvia, opening her blue eyes wide with
astonishment. ,lI am sorry if he has
been troublesome, but I thought you
liked him a little, and he does love the
country so. Won't you let him stay
Just a little longer?"
"My dear, such pretty pleadings
ought to soften my heart, but mine is a
"Look here, aunt, I'll guarantee that
Mr. Wicks eats no more pheasants. I
will take him under my special care, if
Miss Druce will allow me. I'll lick him
into shape. No, no, I mean caress him
till he becomes the best, most obedient,
tractable, delightful dog in the world.
Tou positively mustn't refuse, aunt.
Think how Miss Druce will mis Mr.
"And how Mr. Wicks will miss Miss
Druoe, " added Sylvia.
"And, " continued Jack, "though he
has devoured young pheasants we shall
all miss him." ,
But Miss Cherrytou shook tier bead
and remained firm through all these ar
guments. "Never mind, Miss Druce," said
Jack cheerfully after Aunt Matilda had
left the room. "I'll try again. Mr.
Wicks mustn't be bauinbed if we can
"Thank you," said Sylvia demurely.
"Mr. Wicks will be grateful. "And
now, Mr. Cherryton, if you have really
nothing better to do, come and give me
another golf lesson. "
Jack ran into the hall and seized his
golf bag, saying that it was the best
thing he could do.
"Not quite," retorted Sylvia, laugh
ing. "The very best thing that you
could do would be to persuade your
aunt to let dear Mr. Wicks stay."
"And so I will," exclaimed Jack
with great earnestness.
"How serious," said Sylvia, glancing
quickly at him, and then there was a
pattering of feet and panting behind
them. It was Mr. Wicks.
"How nice 1 We shall have an audi
ence. Mr. Wicks has come to look on, "
said Sylvia, holding out her clcek for
the dog to jump over.
But Jack thought differently. "I'm
afraid we shall find it quite impossible
to play if he does look on," he suggest
ed. "And why?"
' 'Oh, because he'll stand behind you
just when you're going to hit, or come
in front and get killed, and many other
"Very well," said Sylvia, with a
shade of annoyance in her voioe. "Rath
er than that Mr. Wicks shonld lose bis
walk I'll give up golf, and please, Mr.
Cherrytou, will you take my clubs baok
to the house? Thank you:'.'
And at that moment Jack felt that
he positively hated Mr. Wicks.
"Come along, Mr. Wicks, dear,"
cried Sylvia gayly.
Jack fluid never a word, but stood
taring after Sylvia ns she walked away
with Mr. Wicks by her side, and his old
enemy jealousy -raged within him.
Two or three days passed by. Sylvia
seemed just as devoted ns ever to her
dog, and Jack became more aud more
gloomy and silent
"Mr. Wieks niuat really go tomor
row," said Miss Cherryton, looking at
her morose wphow. "My dear Jack,
for goodness' suko suy something, du
something," she cried, jumping up and
bustling about the room. "But don't
it there so solemn and sphiuxtike."
"Send him away, aunt, send the dog
away. But what am I saying? Kevp
hint, I mean, oh, keep him. Mu Druce
Is so devoted to him. " And Jitek flung
himself outtif the room. v
"Well," laughed Mi Cherryton,
"young men are atrange creature, es
pecially when they are in love. Never
thelewi, I shall ltd the puppy away."

the bouse. "Go home. What are yon
doiKg out here?"
Most dogs would have slunk awai
with their tails between their legs, but
Mr Wicks looked np solemnly at Jack
and almost scciiied to speak the words,
"Why are yen angry with me?' then
held up a little paw, as if to ask for
giveness, and a stump of a tail wagged
Presently, without any apparent rea
son, Mr. Wicks began to growl-
Close hy, on a slight rising of th
ground, were three old oaks, veterans,
gnarled and weather beaten. Toward
these Mr. Wicks trotted slowly; then h
stopped, put his head on one side, lis
tened and growled again, and, scamper
ing toward one of the oaks, barked fu
riously. Jack whistled, but Mr. Wicks seem
ed engrossed in gazing up into the tree.
Then a strange thing happened. The
branches of the old oak were pushed
roughly to one side, and a man, leaping
down from the tree, looked rapidly
around him and ran with might and
main across the open ground. Like the
wind, Mr. Wicks, followed by Jack, wai
after him, had reached him, and then
there was a yell of pain, for Mr. Wicki
had used his weapons with good effeot
With a volley of oaths and curses, the
tramp dropped a square parcel he had
been carrying, and then the stick thai
he held in his other hand fell with a
heavy thud, and with just the faintest
little cry Mr. Wicks relaxed his hold
and rolled over on his back.
The burglar ran for his life.
Jack knelt down at Mr. Wicks' side,
called the dog by his name, and the re
covery of the jewels seemed nothing to
him now. Mr. Wicks opened his eyei
slowly, and very feebly he tried to) lick
Jack's hand. There was a world of un
derstanding in those glorious eyes, then
the light flashed out from them, and
Mr. Wicks' merry, brief career was over.
Two figures were walking slowly to
ward the three old oaks. The twilight
was deepening, there was the same pink
glow on the horizon and the same soft
breezes whispering among the trees ai
on that evening when Jack had walked
alone, jealous and miserable. But now
there wa. a change.
"Yes, Jack," murmured Sylvia, "1
was very fond of my dear, heroic littls"
Mr. Wicks, but all the time"
"Yes, and all the time?" asked Jack
eagerly, while he drew nearer.
"I loved far, far batter"
And the three old oaks caught th
words "Ml. Jack." Argosy.
