Decoration Day
Decoration Day this year brought
with it one of the finest and most en
! joyable days of the season. While the
j weather was not as cool as could have
been wished, yet the heavy clouds
dispelled much of the heat that would
otherwise have been most depressing,
and made it a pleasureable occasion
for all. In commemoration of the
day, the business houses closed in the
afternoon, and all who could be ac
commodated went to the Presby
terian church to attend the services.
The program as printed in the North
western was carried out in full. It
. was a disappointment to many that
the exercises were not had in the new
opera house, where so many more
could have been accomodated. Exer
cisesopened with the song, “America,”
by the audience, followed with prayer
by Rev. Jueling. Mrs. Lou Schwaner
then rendered a sweet solo, which was
followed by Lincoln's'address at Get
tysburg by Miss Hallene Mellor, with
quartet by Mrs. Lou Schwaner. Mrs.
A. B. Outhouse, Mr. L. N. Smith and
Mr. A. J. Johnson. The speaker of
the day was Rev. Wm. Crisp of Osce
ola, an old veteran of the Civil War,
and who by reason of his comrade
ship with the Boys in' Blue in those
days, gave a talk which was mos‘
heartily appreciated by the few re
maining members of the Old Guard,
as well as by the great crowd present.
At the close of the address. Mr. Wor
lock rendered that patriotic air,
“Tenting on the Old Camp Ground,”
and followed by music bv the band. I
after which the audience was dis
missed with benediction by Rev.
Tourtellot. Following these services,
a large procession of autos filled with
people went to the cemetery for the
final ceremonies and decorating of the
graves of the heroic dead, and another
Decoration Day had passed into

A Precocious Poet
The past school year, a littlp 10
year-old boy, Lloyd Emerson, Son of
Dr. Emerson of Eingham, Nebr., has
been making his home with Commis
sioner McDonald, at Austin, and it
developes that the little fellow has
tiie born spirit of a poet within him,
in fact, is about the youngest execu
tor of rhymes coming to our notice in
this latter day. The lines are more
remarkable to those who know this
child because of the fact that he is
very childlike and simple in his
actions and the words seem to arrange
themselves for him with very little
effort, so diat lie does not appear to
feel that writing verse is any more
difficult or more to be desired tban is
prose. Mr. McDonald and ali of the
little fellow's friends will watch his
future developement with more than
ordinary interest. The following
poem was written at the Grand Cen
tral Hotel, Broken Bow, Nebraska,
just after a Sunday dinner, April 27,
1913. He borrowed a pencil in the
hotel lobby, went up to his room and
returned in a very few minutes with
this poetical product:
Do not drink whisky
In all cases it's bad.
Do not drink whisky >
Or yon will be sad. •
Whiskey ts wrong
As many will teU.
Whiskey is vile
And is not fit to seil.
Leave whisky alone.
And then you’re a man.
If you fall for it
You're worse tban a tin can.
If you all quit whisky
And start in right.
Then theie won’t be poverty
But what you can Hght.
The following tribute to a rough
haired, ill-mannered horse, was
thought out and put together while
the above youthful author was lead
ing the bulky bay to water, and it was
dictated for copy while the horse
listened and approved, at the stable
on tiie ranch near Ellsworth, Neb.,
May 16,1913:
The big bay horse
Is tough and coarse
And hasn’t got much sense.
He hates to work.
He likes to play
And kick and break the fence.
Get my prices aod see my stock of
watches before making your purchase.
Schwaner, the Jeweler.
Do You Wail Cement Work?

or foundation, or any kind of cement
work, see me. I have on hand at
present a large number of concrete
blocks nicely cured. I ask your pat

A Cheap Pit SUo
No farmer or dairyman should be
without a silo, or need be without one
on account of lacking money to build
with or to buy one. All you need is A
team of horses, a plow and a scraper,
and a little time to bufld a trench
silo in this way, which will be very
Select the hill or knoll nearest to
the barn, or your feeding location:
dig a trencli into it, leaving the
mouth of the trench lower than the
back of it, so it will drain. The width,
d£pth and length of the trench must
be governed by the size of the crop
you are going to raise, and how fast
you are going to feed it. A good crop
of corn will produce about eight to
ten tons of ensilage per acre, and your
silo will hold about thirty-five pounds
of-ensilage to the cubic foot. From
that you can easily figure the size to
make your silo, and the width and (
depth of it want to be made especially
to tit the amount you expect to feed
from it daily. Toucan figure a cow
eating from twenty to forty pounds
of ensilage per day.
This treneh does not necessarily
have to be cemented up or walled up—
just make a good, clean job of^t. In
filling, be careful not to cut your corn
too green: it is better to let the frost
nip the leaves some than have the
corn cut too soon.
If you have aiK ensilage cutter, all
right, use it for cutting your com up.
If not, put it in whole, seeing that
the stalks are laid parallel with each
other. Take particular pains to do a
good job of it, and pack them down as
tight as possible. Then cover up the
corn with about a foot of straw, and
on top of this straw seal it up with
about one or two feet of dirt, piling
the dirt so it forms a crown over the
In this way you get an absolutely
air-tight silo, and you don’t lose the
eight inches or foot of ensilage that
is generally .lost in the stand-up silos.
It is the easiest silo to fill, the easiest
silo to get the ensilage out of, and will
keep better than any of them. You
ought to keep a trench filled over
from year to year; it would come in
handy during the dry season.
If,you wish, near the mouthofyour
silo, or wherever you care to fill it to,
place two posts, about one foot in
diameter, on the two respective sides.
On the side next to the ensilage place
planks that will be heavy enough to
hold the pressure of the ensilage, and
on the outside of the posts board that
up, wiring the boards and the planks
together to keep them from bursting
out; and then seal up this foot space
in between the boards and planks
with mud.
In taking your ensilage out, take
off your boards and work in from the
end, and throw your straw and dirt
back as you take the ensilage out. If
put up this way properly, you need
not lose a pound of ensilage.
Of course, there can be all kinds of
extra finishing touches put on this
trench siio, if you wish, such as ce
menting it up or walling it up, sup
plying it with a cement bottom, and
covering it with a tarpaulin and then
dirt, instead of straw and dirt. If
you figure that kind won’t use up your
surplus money, and you are bound to
have one tliat will show up, build it
out of cement. Put no roof on them,
but cover them with straw and weight
them down with dirt.
It is a mistake to build only one
silo. Why not have one or two silos
full left over in case of emergency
during a dry season? They will be
seated up with dirt, and would keep
a fewf years anyhow.
Any inquiries regarding any of the
silos mentioned will be gladly given
by H. M. DeWitt, Denver, Colorado.
A Big Day June 18
Advices from Central City state
| that the big rally to be held there
June 18 in the interests of larger and
more profitable milk production will
be one of the biggest affairs in the
state along agricultural lines. Large
displays of equipment and addresses
by the best informed men in the state
will make it a day of great interest.
The occasion is for the “man with
the cow,” whether he has one cow or
twenty. Features that usually oc
cupy three days are presented on this
one. We are in receipt of the pro
gram for the rally, and we are sure
that every man who goes there with
his family will be attending a show
hardly less interesting than similar
displays and talks at the state fair.
People from sixteen counties will
be there. Better plan to attend.
Special Teachers’ Examination.
A - special teachers’ examination
will be given the third Friday and
following Saturday in June, June 20
and 21st, 1913, in all county certificate
subjects only. L. H. Currier,
County Superintendent.

where In town, Robert Dlnodale,
James W. Landers
The sad news of the death of James
W. Landers, of Arcadia, came too late
for more than mere mention in our
last issue.
J. VV. Landers, generally known as
Jim, was born in Missouri in 1854,
moved to Iowa in boyhood, and was
married to Martha J. Thompson in
1874. They moved to Loup City, Ne
braska, in 1880, where he engaged in
the butcher business, and with the
advent of the railroad, branched out
into the stock business and was very
successful, being one j>f the best
judges of livestock in tlie northwest.
Moved to Arcadia in idBl, where he
resided until the date of his death,
May 27, 1913, aged 59 years and some
months. He left surviving him, his
widow, his aged father of 87 years,
two daughters and five grand-children,
an only son having departed this life
in infancy. -He was interred in Ever
green cemetery of this place on the
29th day of May, the services being
under the auspices of Loup City
Lodge, No. 33, A.O.U.W., a large con
course of people of Arcadia and Loup
City being in attendance.
Jim was noted for his liberality, no
person in need of assistance ever /ap
pealed to him but that his hand (as
if by natural instinct) went to his
pocket in response thereto.
Some may stt in ihe scor#t-r s seat.
And hurl the cynic's ban.
But liberal Jim was seldom beat.
In being a frleud to man.
If a flower were placed upon his
grave for every kind act bestowed,
his last resting place would be a bed
of roses. When the darkhess of death
came to the home of a friend, Jim
Landers was not deterred by weather
or distance in his efforts to restore
peace and comfort to the troubled
mind, and as he was faithful to friends
and lived in the spirit of charity, his
many virtues shall notgoun-rewarded.

An Age of Discovery
This is a hurry up age. Very re
cently the American public has had
Turtle, Goat and Hog Serums thrust
upon them. And still there is more
to follow. We are all interested In
the outcome of these so-called cures
for Tuberculosis. We predict they
will go hence and soon be forgotten.
Throughout the ages we have looked
for a cure for disease from without,
not within. Something we could take
internally or hypodermically. Are
you tired of it? If so call at the Fred
erick Hotel Tuesday or Wednesday,
June 10th or lltb, and meet ourcon
sulting Physician, Dr. B.H. Cubbage,
and learn bow you can cure all
curable diseases without the use of
Drugs or Knife In a safe, sane and
simple way. Remember the dates.

If you want to buy anything, anywhere, let
us council with you before you do. We have
traveled, investigated, bought, sold and kept
careful count of net results. We have made and
lost, but in the main have gained, have often
left the near to seek the far off good, which we
have seldom found.
Many old men will very likely read these
simple words, tired of summer heat and winter
cold, they want to rest and we can tell them
how because we know of many young men who
want to buy just what they desire to sell. We
can show them how to do these very things with
safety to them both and we can make a profit
for ourselves which no one will regret.
