A Dog's Long Trip
" Thin and gaunt, and with no other
instinct to guide him save the memory
of a warm kennel, good food and au
occasional caress, a little Scotch col

Neb., returned five hundred miles to
itp former master in Des Moines.
Just how long the dog was making
the distance has not yet been ascer
tained, but with unerring instinct ne

through timber and across rivers, fin

was given a hearty welcome, a warm

and took it back with him to Valen

he was seen at Fremont, Neb., where
some boys threw stones at him while
he was stealing a meal from a back
door. This was the report until he
appeared in Des Moines.
His master was awakened by a
slight scratching at the front door. On
opening it lie saw a shaggy, thin, dirty
little collie. He soon recognized his
former pet, however, and declares he
would not now part with the animal
for twice its value. -Our Dumb Animals.

Address THE COMMONER,
The annual report of the Steel Trust
showing net earnings of $150,000,000
for 190G would not be possible without
the tariff which makes American stoel
rails ?G a ton cheaper in Turkey than
in Indiana. Yet it is none the less a
gratifying proof of a very general
prosperity throughout the country.
Steel is in these days as truly an in
dex of the exuberant growth of nation
al resources as wheat or cotton; and
to surpass in its use and production
France, Germany and Great Britain
combined is no trifle. New York
Hardships of a Deacon
The Osborne "Farmer's" "Village
Deacon" is greatly worried. He says
if he stops moralizing the Woman's
Christian Temperance "Onion starts
the report that he has backslid, and if
hr goes it a trifle strong the Elks talk
of expelling him. Kansas City Star.
"What's all that squabbling about
down there?" the contractor asked.
"The rami that runs the steam-roller
insists on being called a chauffeur,"
was the reply. Philadelphia Bulletin.
One thing from which the fowl
breeder in the Kikuyu farm suffers is
the lack of grit for his hens. It pays
to import gravel or rough sand for this
purpose. This can be obtained in the
river beds in the plains toward Lu
kenia Hills. Star of East Africa.

FINE FARM LAND VERY CHEAP.
FOR SALE--A number of one-quarter, one
half and whole sections of unimproved farm land
in Perkins county, Nebraska.
This land is all rich prairie land, every acre of
which can be cultivated. The soil is black sandy
loam and very productive.
The country is healthful, the land beautiful, and
suited to diversified farming.
There are well improved farms, good neigh-
bors, good schools, good churches, and a good
- town all in sight of this land.
This land is located from one to five miles from
a thriving town on the Burlington railroad.
There are three other good towns in Perkins
45 BUSHELS OF CORN PER ACRE WAS
RAISED LAST YEAR ON LAND ADJOINING
50 BUSHELS OF WHEAT PER ACRE
RAISED ON TIIE SAME KIND OF LAND IN
THE SAME COUNTY IN 1900.
ALFALFA GROWS IN PROFUSION NEAR
BY ON THE SAME KIND OF LAND.
For each year during the past three years the
crops raised on land in Perkins county sold for ft
more than the COST PRICE of the same land.
Farm this land one year and its present selling
price would be doubled.
It is as productive as the best land in Iowa or
Illinois. Sell 20 acres in those states and your
money will buy a quarter section of the land I
am offering for sale. Excellent water at a depth
of 40 feet. No better country on earth for raising
all kinds of stock.
Oats, barley, and rye are profitable crops.
Do you want a farm while this land Is -within
your reach? Cheap farm lands will soon be a
thing of the past. A quarter section of this laud,
will make a nice nest egg. I am offering this land
for less than one-fourth -what the same kind of
soil is selling for 50 miles distant I can verify
every statement made above. If interested call
on me or write for prices and detail descriptions.
As an investment or for a home it will pay you
to investigate. Co-operation with -other agents
