What other Christmas present costs
so little and means so much as a sub
scription to The Youth’s Companion
—52 weeks for #1.75? It is a gift which
benefits not only the one who receives
it, but every member of the same
With many Christmas presents the
sense of novelty wears off by the week’s
end, but The Youth's Companion is
as new and sought after the fifty
second week of the year as the first.
It is elastic in Its adaptability, too;
for it does not matter whether the
present is for a boy or a girl, young
married people, sedate couples, grand
parents— there never was one yet who
did not set store by The Youth’s Com
panion. You cannot make a mistake
if you give The Companion—and it is
only S1.75 a year now. On January
1,1912, the price will be advanced to
The one to whom you give the sub
scription will receive free The Com
panion's Calendar for 1812, litho
graphed in ten colors and gold,
you too, as a giverof the subscription
will receive a copy of the Calendar.

Crop Statistics
Despite an unfavorable crop season

braska shows np a-good average vain
of cereal staples of this year, state
Labor Commissioner Louis X. Guy*
has prepared a tabulations of tbeagrl
cultural data gathered by bis office
and finds tiiat where there has been
a loss of crop value in one section or
on one kind of grain it is made up by
gains on other products or in more
favored districts.
Regarding the results of this year’s
investigation, Ur. Guye said:
“The 1911 report white being slight
ly below the general avenge yield,
seems to have gained through the .ad
vanced prices and our enormous gain
In fruit crops, hence the total value
of our 1911 crop will beslightly in ad
vance of the 1910.
“The rapid strides made in fruit
growing have necessitated the getting
out of a separate bulletin on this sub
ject and tbe total result of the fruit
crop for 1911 will not therefore be
known until this bulletin is com

Oe After Train Craw at Hazard
With Knives and tens.
A Burlington train crew made up
of Engineer George Hicks, Brakemen
Polenzand Hu tchison, and Conductor
Lawson were attacked by a gang of
Italian track laborers at Hazard, one
evening last week, in which guns and
knives played a very conspicuous part.
The train in switching at that point
accidenUly struck the string of board
ing and bunk cars occupied by the
Italians, Jolting them up quite a bit.
This infuriated the dagoes and they
swarmed out of the cars fifty or sixty
in number and took after the train
crew armed with knives, revolvers and
clubs. One of the Italians made a
vicious jab at Brakeman Hutchison
with a knife, catching him in the
sleeve of the coat, but inflicting no
wound. Others pulled a gun on En
gineer Hicks and forbade him moving
his engine, but he pulled out just the
same and with the train crew got
away from the infuriated mob with
out any great damage being done.
The Burlington sent officers to Hazard
the last of the week, but we have
beard of no arrests being made.—Ra

Have you read toe Trap Law?
Talk about class legislation, dis
crimination, etc., have you aver read
the state law relating to tramps? If
a tramp refuses to do some work for
you after he has asked you for food
clothing or lodging, and you have
asked him to do the work, he can be
fined or imprisioned for failure to
perform his part of the contract. If
a tramp—and this applies only to
roving vagabonds—grows angered
over a refusad to give him a handout
and assaults you or your property, or
by threats or force secures food or
clothing, he is guilty of a peniten
tiary offense. And no officer need
have a warrant to arrest a tramp for
any offense. Furthermore, this law
does not apply to women, to blind
persons or boys under sixteen. Don't

Secretary W. R. Mellor of the state
board of agriculture, in a speech as
presiding officer at the Omaha land
show during the Nebraska day excer
cises last Friday handed out a bunch
of facts about the fanning and live
stock industries of this common wealth
and its per capita possessions which
made the alluring advertisements of
other states look cheap by comparison.
Mr. Mellor took the ground that Ne
braska’s resources afford the best
promise of returns for honest indust
try that can be found in the union.
“We do not see any reason why a
citizen of Nebraska should be attract
ed to some other state to seek a home
or make investments,’’ he said. “Why
do you know that the average corn
production of Nebraska during the
past ten years has been 175,000,000
bushels per annum; that wheat has
averaged 45,5000,000 bushels and oats
Detailing further the wealth of Ne
braska, Mr. Mellor gave the following
data; “We have in Nebraska 3,000,000
cattle, 3,000.000 hogs, 500,000 sheep.
1,000,000 horses, 1,000,000 mules, and
23,000 automobiles. Nor is this all of
the wonderful showing of Nebraska.
The last bank statement shows that
we have more than 6200,000,000 in
bank deposits. Nebraska has a mil
lion two hundred thousand inhabit
ants: therefore, the per capita wealth
of each man, woman and child for
products named shows for each in
“145 bushels of corn, 38 bushels of
wheat, 50 bushels oats 1 horse, mule
or automobile, Seattle 3 hogs, ^ sheep
“And in addition 6166,00 in cash de
posited in the banks. The amount
of cash for all the people of the United
States is given out at about 636 per
caoita while that in Nebraska is 6166.
In the face of these conditions actualy
existing, why should our citizens
search elsewhere for a home of in

Careful Men; those who have made
a financial success of their business,
will tell you they started an account
with their town bank when they
were just boys. Some of their com
panions took no interest in “a bank
account” and today amount to prac
tically nothing. Young men, if you
expect to become successful busi
ness men, save part of your earnings
and lay them away in a strong bank
and you will have made an excel
lent start for a bright future. Come
in and get acquainted with us.
