Robert Jenner returned to Loup City
last Thursday after being absent nine
months, being in England most of tin
time while away. Mr. Jenner loek^
about ten years younger, and his
journ in the old ouuntrv certainly must
have agreed with him. He has many
interesting experiences to relate, see
ing several German air raids over Lon
don and many other unusual things
that are transpiring during war times ;
The Sherman County fair was attend
ed by good sized crowds last week and
will run a little to the good financially.;
All three mornings were cloudy and
threatened rain which kept many away
who would have otherwise attended
The exhibits and free attractions were
good, and the ball games delighted the
crowds. Secretary Tracy has requested
the Northwestern to announce that all
premium money will be paid a week
from next Saturday.
We have at last entered into a rainy
spell and the farmers are smiling be
cause of the excellent condition of the
soil for fall grain Sunday night it rain
ed an inch and on Monday night it
rained over two inches, niaking a trifle
over three inches, most of which soak
ed in the ground. It was the first rain
since last June, but in spite of that
many farmers boast that they will have!
corn that will raise from thirty to forty;
bushels per acre. l'p-to-date we have
not had a frost and it looks like every;
ear was going to rinen ud before frost
There is to be a non-partisan politi
cal meeting in Loup City next Thurs
day evening. The object of this meet
ing is to organize along the line of the
organization in Xorth Dakota which
swept that state and elected a gover
nor and state legislature in harmony
with certain measures promulgated
by the farmers organization. While we
have a popular governor and a man
who will be hard to beat next year, yet
if the farmers put up the right kind
of man on a platform who will cut out
half the boards in the state house and
curb certain corporations they will cut
ouite a figure in next years election.
The government has forced the price j
of steel in two. acording to reports, j
Surely the war is a terrible tning. hut ]
aside from the victory that our army
will win eventually, we have won an
industrial fight, and that is to demon i
strate that this government can cur'
the price of every commodity and
force prices that are jus; To the big
farmers convention recently held in
Minneapolis, is due the cut in steel, for
they said that the government fixed
the price of their wheat and demanded
that the government fix the price of
steel, which they did. The coal situa
tion has been taken care of now. the
government ought to curb the great
Rockerfeller and fix the price of oil.

Five Disc Van Brunt
Put your wheat in the corn, ami the corn in the wheat fields, with
the five disc Van Brunt one horse drill.
1 do not claim to be clever but 1 do claim to know a good thing when
1 see it and that is why I bought 25 Van Brunt one-horse disc drills,
to help you to get this wheat in the corn. I felt sure the proposition
would appeal to you. Of course you know full well that extra effort
must be employed to get more sowed this fall than ever, sitting down
and waiting wont even catch fish, unless you throw out a properly
bated hook on the end of a line
Do not wait for rain to plow. Put your wheat in the corn field and
take advantage of my buy. Come in and get one of these drills.
Like all other Van Brunt drills, this is light draft because it is
light weight, well balance, frame is heavy steel, well braced, has the
famous Van Brunt adjustable gate force feed which compels an even
flow of seed from hopper. Drill is provided with fenders so construct
ed as to prevent cornstalk or trash from lodging or clogging The disc
bearing is practically indestructible, as hard as flint and runs constant
ly in a bed of oil meeting with minimum friction. We replace free of
charge all bearings that wear out. One oiling per season is generally
enough. Close fitting scrapers keep disc absolutely clean.
