AUTO TURNS TURTLE.
Tuesday evening Clarence Arnett
'tarted out to give some boys a ride
in his new Dodge car. Ben Zents was
driving and doing a little speeding. He
’ried to turn the corner near the Wni.
Hancock place while going at a prett>
good pace and the car turned com
pletely over twice. Clarence Arnett was
badly hurt, receiving two severe cuts
on the leg. He was the only one hurt
anti there was six in the car at the
time. The car was badly damaged. The
boys consider themselves very fortu
nate that the accident was not more
serious and that no more of them
were hurt. It was a close call and
shows that you can not turn corners
when the car is going 35 to 40 miles
A little ad in The Northwestern will
always bring results.

A HOODOO MONTH.
It begins to appear that the month
of April will be as significant to the
United States as the month of March
to the Kaisers. Czars, and other
crowned heads. Every war the United
States has ever engaged in was start
ed in April. The revolutionary war
began in April, 1775. The embargo
which brought about the war of 1812
was enacted in April ,i812. The hos
tilities of both Mexican tangles took
place in April. Fort Sumpter was
fired upon and captured in the month
of April, 1861, and the war of the re
bellion was under way. McKinley
declared war on Spain in April, 1898.
And now President Wilson and con
gress has declared war on Germany
USE OF RAPE
The farmer w-ho is planning to feed
his hogs in dry lot without supple
mental forage will find that he can
reduce production costs by the use
of rape pasture, say animal husbandry
experts at the agricultural college.
Rape will make more hog pasture
than any other crop in use in eastern
or central Nebraska. If seeded by May
1, it will be ready to pasure by June
15 or earlier. As many as 40 shotes
may be carried on a single acre when
fed grain in addition.
Rape stands more abuse than any
other pasture, it can be grown quick
ly, and a good stand can be secured
without difficulty. Six to eight pounds
of seed arc sown per acre. Seed now
costs 10 to 14 qents per pound.

First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean
We are proud to claim the title
Of United States Marine
From the Pest Hole of Cavite
To the Ditich at Panama.
You will find them very needy
Of Marines—That’s what we are;
We're the watch dogs of a pile of coal
Or we dig a magazine.
Though he lends a hand at every job
Who would not be a Marine?
Our flag's unfurled to every breeze
From dawn to setting sun,
We have fought in every clime or place
Where we could take a gun;
In the*snow of far off Northern lands
And in sunny tropic scenes.
You wrill find us always on the job—
The United States Marines.
Here's health to you and to our Corns
Which we are proud to serve.
In many a strife we have fought for
And never lost our nerve;
If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven's scenes.
They will find the streets are guarded
The United States Marines.
