Miss Brown, of Arcadia, visited at

Mrs. Swanson of Hamilton county,

The snow is nearly all gone and we
have not heard anyone complain about
it yet. so it must be that “Absence
makes the heart grow fonder.” is true.
A goodly number of the young peo
ple of this vicinity attended the dance
at Emil Malm's place on Clear Creek
last Saturday night and all reported a
good time.
A. G. Hagey purchased a fine span
of mules last week. We did not hear
the exact price paid but if he bought
them for less than $400 he got them
too cheap.
We have been told that some of Cole

started to plow. Well, if they have

Inoculation for alfalfa may best be
accomplished by scattering over the
area to be seeded surface soil taken to
the depth of 4 or 5 inches from an
other field upon which the crop has
bpen previously successfully grown.
The soil should be broadcasted, at the
rate of from 250 to 500 pounds per
acre, and harrowed in immediately.
The spreading should take place in a
cloudy day or late in the afternoon, as
the sun's rays are destructive to the
germs. Soil from the roots of sweet
clover plants also will inoculate alfalfa.
Care should be taken to avoid introduc
ing noxious weeds or fungous diseases.

Sunday morning at 10:30 will be
our Quareterly Communion service.
Every member of the church is urged

The district conference at Lexington
was one of the best we ever attended.
There was a large attendance. Mr.
Long extended an invitation to the con
ference to meet at Loup City next year.
This invitation was extended by the
vote of the official board of this church
It was unanimously accepted. It will
bring to our city Bishop Homer C.
Stuntz. one of the outstanding leaders
of American Methodism, and some of
the most prominent pulpit men of our
church, as well as many delegates
from over the district. Loup City can
entertain this conference right royally
and will do so.
The group meeting in this church on
Tuesday of this week was a complete
success. Dr. Hollingshead. one of the
speakers from the east, said it was the
best of the meetings on this district.
Dr. Isham said we had the largest at
tendance of any of the meetings. That
means we beat Kearney and Broken
Bow. The pastor wishes to thank the
folks for the very fine interest taken
by our people in attending, entertain
ing delegates, etc. Now for the practi
cal application of plan to the work as
signed us. We have a fine organi
zation of teams perfectly capable of
getting the needed results. The sup
plies wall be here shortly and perhaps
next week the teams will be able to
visit their groups. Be sure, leaders, to
ask God to help you in the great work
to which you have given yourselves,
otherwise you will not win.
Easter will soon be here and our

In reply to Mr. Hans Johnson’s let-1
ter of March 19th. The question he ask
ed me was: “that a statement had been
made in regard to his roadwork and he
claimed he had been fair.” He says in I
his letter the road funds were left in |
his hands to use as he saw fit, so it I
The tow'nship assessing was alscHn-!
trusted to me. and when I came to
place a value on his property last
spring he told me he wanted to be used
just like everybody else, now all I atn
asking is that he uses everybodv else
just like himself. There is a main
traveled road running diagonally
across Logan Township and what
seems strange to me is that the lower
one-third of it is kept up so much
better than the upper two-thirds, when
all of the land along it is of the same
grade and assessed at the same price.
In regard to the grading, part of it
was done in 1913 and has had noth
ing done since except dragging and is
worn down 18 inches in places. He
regrades his road but not the rest,
this is plain for the public to see.
In regard to our friendship I con
sidered Mr. Johnson as one of my best
friends, until he tried to make a scape
goat out of me by saying it was my
fault that our roads were in such a con
dition, that I would not drag them,
thereby shielding himself.. The fact
of the matter at that time was that
there wras only Ik* miles in shape to
drag and that was in four patches.
In regard to him not speaking dis
respectful of me, I have proof that he
has and the party he told will face him
in it any place and if he had not made
this statement I would not have writ
te this letter.
I am willing to go with any one and
view these roads to see whether I have
told the truth. *
This is my last.

Among the countless evidences of
increased and growing prosperity in
Nebraska none is more marked than
the improvement noticeable in prac
tically all of the country newspapers.
No longer ago than a year or two a
large proportion of the country press
lid no credit to the state. Many a
town was nourishing one or two local
papers that were no credit to it. They
were miserably printed and generally
poorly gotten up. It was not unusual
for an exchange editor to find many
that simply could not be read, and
there were many more the reading of
which would not pay anybody's time
Mid effort.
It has been within the past year
that there has been a refreshing re
habilitation of the country press. It
is now a positive pleasure to encount
er most of the papers, which a year
ago excited commiseration. Why the
change has come is only inferentially
apparent. It must be attributed to the
general betterment of conditions
among the readers of home papers.
These improvements have been af
fected also while prices of "print pa
per and all that goes toward the sub
tenances of a newspaper have been
mounting to altitudes that have at
times seemed just short of prohibi
tive. To some these prices were pro
hibitive, and a Jew papers blinked out.
rhe remarkable improvement of those
that hung on is a tribute both to the
industry and sagacity of their pub
lishers and t<T the liberality of the
prosperous communities which thev
This is extremely gratifying to
every observant person, for there is no
more unerring reflection of local con
ditions in communities than the local
papers that speak for them.—Lincoln

All the blood in the body passes
through the kidneys once every three
minutes. The kidneys filter the blood.
They work night and day. When heal

some part of this impure matter is left

widely but may include pain in the
