Dry Weather Hurt Only Small Portion
of Southern Part of State.
Lincoln, Sept. 10. Only the south
eastern part of the state was hurt
seriously by dry weather this year.
There the corn is not especially good.
Elsewhere, according to reports of
E00 olt of 900 correspondents of the
state labor bureau, the crop will be
better than usual. The crop for the
state at large, with 300,000 acres more
than last year, will be immense, so
much greater than last year that Ne
braska will be among the three lead
ing corn states.
Labor Commissioner Bush wrote to
his correspondents, ton In ench county,
asking to know the condition of the
crop. If It were better than last year
they were to list It as "good." II
about equal they were to call it "fair."
Five out of every eight report It bet
ter than last year.

THOMPSON SUPPORTS DIAZ
Declares Reports of Uprising in Mcxl
ico Arc Exaggerated.
Washington, Sept. 8. Declaring to
bo false the reports of a bitter anti
American feeling in Mexico and an or
ganized revolution against President
Diaz, David E. Thompson, tho Amer
ican ambassador, has made an ex
haustive report to the state depart
ment setting forth In detnll Informa
tion which could nor be conveyed in
his previous confidential dispatches.
Ho has renewed his request, that in
compliance with tho wishes of Mex
ico's president, tills government
should take steps to suppress the Mex
ican revolutionary junta at St Louis,
which publishes in Spanish a paper
Hilled "Kegouorat Ion."
H contends that articles that have
appeared In ceitain newspapers of the
United States, discussing alleged dis
satisfaction with tho administration of
President Diaz and asserting that an
insurrection of possibly lar-reachlng
consequences is incubntlng, nre wholly
without foundation and of inestimable
harm to Mexico.
Numerous telegrams have been ex
changed between the state department
and Ambassador Thompson in relation
to the publishers of Itegeneracion, in
which the ambassador has suggested
that If these men could be dealt with
aa anarchists, President Diaz would
feel a deep gratitude.

You have heard that some foods furnish fat,
other foods make muscle, and still others are
tissue building and heat forming.
You know that most foods have one or more
of these elements, but do you know that no
food contains them all in such properly balanced
proportions as a good soda cracker ?
The United States Government report shows
that soda crackers contain less water, are richer
in the muscle and fat elements, and have a much
higher per cent of the tissue building and heat
forming properties than any article of food made
That is why Uneeda Biscuit should
form an important part of every meal. They
represent the superlative of the soda cracker, all
their goodness and nourishment being brought
from the oven to you in a package that is proof
against air, moisture and dust the price being
too small to mention.

TO MAKE COCOANUT CREAM. I
Simple Process That Yields Excellent
Substitute for Butter.
Tho cocoanut is more oxtenslvely
used, perhaps, as a food than any
other nut. In certain of tho Pacific
Islands It constitutes almost an ex
clusive dietary. Cows, dogs, donkeys,
chickens, In fact almost every living
thing, oven certain species of crabs,
live on the cocoanut, Ingeniously
working a way to tho meat through
the one open eye of the nut. In tho
country where it grows the cocoanut
is very largely enteu in the half-ripe
state. At this stage tho meat Is Jelly
liKe In consistency and may bo eaten
with a spoon. It Is very toothsome
and nourishing. The meat of tho ripo
nut Is very hard to digest and can
scarcely be masticated sulllcieutly to
prepnte It for ontoilng the stomach.
The best use which can bo made of
tho meat of tho ripe cocoanut 1b In
the preparation of the cocoanut cream,
which is an excellent substitute for
butter. This may bo easily accom
plished by tho following method: Re
move the meat nnd put It through an
ordinary vegetable shredder. Pour
over the pulp twice tho quantity of
boiling wnter and let stand for half
an hour, then strain through a fine
cloth, nnd let the milk so obtained
stand for three or four hours in a
cold plnco. A rich cream rises,
which may be used In the same way
as dairy cream, or like ordinary
cream, may bo worked into butter.
