The reports are that in the vicinity
of Kansas City the wheat crop will lie a
total failure, the continued wet weather
having rotted the seed in the ground. It
apars to be iossible to liave too much
of a good thing in that country.
The F. E. & M. V. railroad has made

The reports from all over the county
are very encouraging. Not only is tr
reatly increased acreage being put in,
but a great deal better farming is being
done. The farmers will find it will pay
just as well to do good farming in a new
country as it does in the east. The man
who works his farm intelligently and
thoroughly is almost certain to succeed.
The Journal would like to receive
crop reports from every section of the
county, at short intervals from now un
til the grain is ready for market. When
in town call and tell how the crops are
doing and if you live so far away that
you do business elsewhere, drop a postal
card to The Journal with the desired in
formation written thereon. People in
the east want to get the facts as to crops
and such reports will enable them to get

It would lie a pretty good plan for
the proper parties to look after the band
instruments. There was a full set of in
struments and from what wecanleain
they have liecome pretty well scattered,
One is at Crawford, some at Montrose
and others in the possession of other par
ties. They ought to be got together and
taken care of. The Journal does not
know whose business it is to look after
the instruments, but some one ought to
be responsible for them.
or ftM-iiicra snotild profit by the ex
perience of this season and in future be
prepared to take advantage of any open
weather after the first of January. If
land is plowed in the fall it is always
ready to receive the seed earlier than any
other land and the sooner the wheat is in
the ground after the beginning of the
year the better. It is also hoped that
the farmers will sow ai good acreage of
fall wheat in future, then if the spring is
late there is not so much work to rush
them, and the quantity and quality of
fall wheat is above that of spring sowing.
Prof. E. II. Barbour, of the state
university left for home Saturday even
ing, lie secured live specimens ol wnat
is locally called "devil's corkscrews" and
was highly pleased with his work while
here. Last year he obtained a specimen
but so far he has been unable to deter
mine just what it is and he hopes with
what he has now secured he will gain
the desired information. He had a pho
tographic outfit with him and made a
number of negatives. Prof. Barbour is
highly pleased with Sioux county and
says there is no question as to its rapid
development in the near future. He will
return in about a month and is contem
plating the purchase of some land here
as an investment. All people have to do
is to see the land and learn of the oppor
tunities oflerecf by Sioux county to be
convinced that it is a good place to lo
cate and that it will be but a short time
until property will become valuable.
Prof. Barbour was so well pleased with
the prospects of the county that he will
quite likely be the means of getting new
settlers to come here.
The weather during the past week
has been rather unusual. Cm Friday
night it began to snow and kept it up
up until Monday morning. The temper
ture was such that it kept melting as it
fell, but notwithstanding that the snow
accumulated to the depth of several
inches. The storm appears to have been
quite general, being rain in the east and
snow extended west, the reports from
Buffalo,' Wyo., being that it is impos
sible to get mail or freight from Gillette
and unless the roads dry up soon people
will be reduced to the bare necessaries of
life. In the east it is still worse. Crops
in many localities are reported as ruined,
buildings and streets flooded, railroads
washed out and business almost, at a
standstill. Corn lias already taken a rise I
and will, likely go still higher. Iha
wheat in many parte of the east will lie
almost, if not quite a total failure. Tak
ing it altogether the peqplq.of northwest
Nebraska are in much better shape than
many of their eastern neighbors. Tlie
