Another change is that cattle RiarK namer EQIlOrs Webster County, Nebraska, lies In the valley of the itpubllcuu, is l'O miles west, of tint Missouri river and touches the slate line on the South. Winters arc mild and dry; very little rain or snow falls lu that seusnn so little hi fact that cuttle live nil winter with no hay or grafn. Plenty of rain falls in the spring and summer. The summers are not disagreeably warm, as there is always a cool breeze espec ially in tho evenings. Tho county first began to settle in 1870. In 1871 the county was organized withapopu ation of 45. Its population is now be tween 2500 and 3000 and Is rapidly In creasing. There are at prevent 38 or ganized school districts within its boundrlea and vcbool facilities are therefore ample better than those in some Eastern States. The apportion able school fund furnishes nearly enough ntoney to pay teachers,' WBges, Farmers-can buy R. K. land from 81.50. to tO per acre -with ten years, time, There is yet a considerable amount of, government lands for homesteads and pre-emptions. As a stock raising country It is hard to excel. Cattle do well, and for sheep it cannot be beat en. It is just suited to that. For tunes can be easily made by raising sheep as the expense of feeding is very small. That corn, oats, barley, pota toes, buck wheat,- and all kinds of roots and vegetables, are grown here with little labor. 35 bushels of sod corn to the acre is nothing new. Wheat averages about 23 bushels to the acre. Fruit does extremely well. Every! luruii'L una .ma uruunru gruwiiig. sur est trees grow rapidly. Cottonwood; boxelder, whitewobd, soft maple, and many other kinds of trees grow into timber large enough for fuel in about three years Osage orange plants do nicely, and in a few years your live fences can be made. Moohanics find employment and fair wages. Tho very best and purest water is obtained bv going from 5 to 100 feet. The cost is very small when tho well , is bored. .These wells never go dry. The streams of this county are the Republican and its tributaries which areas follows: on the south side of. the river, Walnut, Dry, Buffalo, Slate, Penny, Cedar, Hicks, Asb, and Guide Rock creeks, On the north side are Willow, Bin, Cottonwood, Crooked, Indian, and Farmers creeks. In the north part.of tftw ceeaty4 the Blue river and1 its tributaries. The soil of Webster county If a dark, rich vegetable loam. The wilt y ijmsm are nutritions and abundant, aad make most excellent hay, Tisaothy, clover, Hungarian and millet will un doubtedly prove a profitable produc tion. Those who have tried them so decide at least. Our railroad prospects are good and we will have a road as soon as we really need one. Bat the farmers for years will find ready sale for surplus productions In the newer counties west and to new settlers. By the tin these markets are closed roads for cheaper transportation east will be opened. Our climate is healthful; the air pure and bracing, and aicknasa of any kiad ia almost a stranger to the peo ple here. ' The county seat, Red Cloud, on the republican river, near the oenter east and west and a .little south of the center north and! south. Ia it, are chances for business men to every branch of trade. The eouatry around is such as to warrant a 'good business in every kind of merchandise.

May 2, 1912 Webster county stlR lies hi tho vnlloy of tho Republican but wc can no long ler say that there In a scarsitv of rain 'iHIld snow In tho winter. Tim nast can uo ! live during the whiter without hay or grain. They fed The bulfalo grass Is a must be thing of the p:ist. The present population Is alxuit m.OOO and Is still rapidly increasing. Could the early Mittlt is J-ee themagiii ticleut school buildings Ot'er the couittv today they would feel amply repild for their pionetr school work. The government laud and, tho railroad land is all gone and the same fat ins that were sold then for 81.1H) to 80 per ucre now bring froin ?(10 to 8125 per nero'. Cattle still do well since this is one ot tho greatest feeding couuties in the state. The llurcau of labor on crop statistics shows that tho average yield per acre of corn is now 31.5, wheat 28.1, oats 40,4, rye 22, alfalfa 3 tons, potatoes 50. Alfalfa has taken the place of timothy and clover. It has been, proven that every kind of northern tree can be successfully grown ftp this county. Peaches, pears, apples, cherries and apricots are plen tiful. The streams of '78 still flow and they never gb dry. The soil is still as good as it was then and the experienced farmers now knows how to rotate his crops and conserve the moisture. The rail road has been here for years afford ing u good market for all the surplus produce but the greater parVof all grains and hay is fed right at'' home. Cattlo feeding is now carried ou so largely that all crops are easily used and tbe.fat cattle shipped to eastorn markets The dreams of tho early pioneers have been fully realized and we now have acounty that is rich in product ion, 'rich in schools, rich in buildings and improvements It will return as large dividends for the labor expended as any county lu the middle west. Hats Off To The Hens Tho Chief has been t some pains to ascertain the amount of the butter, egg and poultry trade of the city during the year ending with May 1st, 1012, Tho total values brought to the city are as follows: Eggs, 120,058.49; but ter, 113,070,48; poultry, 914,480.77. Of these amounts about one third was resold by the merchants for home consumption, and the remaining two thirds was shipped to other points. The butter brought to the city re presents about one third ot the market ed dairy product, the remaining two thirds having; been sold in the form of cream. The, total poultry and dairy product handled in the city during tho year amounts in round nwmbers to the value f 175,000. These Bgurea: Indicate the rapidly Increasing significance ot the cow and hen, and the corresponding Importance of the alfalfa pasturage. No portion of the state is so well adapted to the cultivation of alfalfa as Is the vlolnity of Red Cloud, and, prob ably there is no city of the state sur rounded by a larger acreage of this grass. Yet but a small fraction of the area in sight is now covered with this highly nutritious and productive vege tation. ' There are no signs that the prices'of last year will suffer a sensible dlmin 1st Ion. On the other hand the upward tendency of prices for dairy and poul try products would seem to bo assur ed. At these prices, every farmer, by a little attention to the barn yard can make .the cow and hen easily supply the-needsof the family in groceries and dry goods and provide pocket money tor the wife and children. New Factory for Red Cloud Willlnm Dumas of Dos Moines, Iown, arrived in the city Friday and is pre paring to open a cigar factory hi tho Moon block, In the old lodgo rooms formerly occupied by Motoalf's studio. Mr. Dumas is a musician, and through thoelfurthiif Prof, lletr. mid tho .local business men, was brought to the oily to open thu factory. Mr. Dumns comes well recommended and is a com petent utgnr maker. Mr. Dumas will move Ills family here as soon as he Is permanently located. Tho Chief joins tVo citizens and business men of Hod Cloud in welcoming Mr. Damns to our city. Christian Church Announcement There will bo services every Lord's Day as full time is now arranged for.
