What Nebraska Farmers Arc
When the magazine JrrRtfV go bant
lag for a story abOUtbl ibtriga in ag

to Kansas; for thejreason that Kansas
has been unusually progressive In ad
vertising her resources; and Kansas
baa done great thing with her 1,78V
463 people ou the farms and ber. 26,
040,550 acren under cultivation. But
in 1010, Nebrtisku with less than two
thirds of the population and about half
of the cultivated acreage beat the Sun
flower state to a frazzle, for Instance:
Kansas produced au average per
capita value of agricultural products
of $107.32: Nebraska au nrerage of
Did you get that? Read it again.
Kansas produced from her farms
wealth to the amount of f 11.98 per cat
llvated acre: Nebraska farmera turned
out 125.47 per cultivated acre. ,
And that's different. Remember it.
Kansas produced from her total ag
rloultural and live stock business
1316.00 per capita. Fine!
Nebraska produoed from bee total
live stock and agricultural business
9151.00 per capita.
And 'that's different again, .Don't
To make it plain, Nebraska,' with
just about half as many folks on her
farms, beat Kansas 13,212,347 in the
total of wealth production; a matterof
5135.00 per capita.
The U, S. caisuB says that tbe aver
age wealth of the farmers of Kansns
was $1,175 per capita In 1010; Nebras
ka farmers bad 2,300 per capita,
That's $5,025 mors of wealth for every
family of five on the farms of Nebras
ka thau for similar families of Kansas.
There's a reason for these things.
Nebraska is a good state to live In.

Tbe trouble over tbe county treasur
er's office out lu Custer county rein
forces the argument that It is high
time for some clean sweeping in tbe
state house. Cor that trouble Involved
W. A. George, state treasurer, and
candidate for re-election, who was
formerly county treasurer in uuster
The county board, having bad a
thorough examination made by an ex
pert, has Instructed the, county at-'
torney to bring suit to recover $3,001.82
of interest money whlob should have
been turned In to the county, and was
not, during Mr. George's incumbency
of the county treasurer's office. Mr.
George's; democratic predecessor iu
county treasurer's office collected all
the legal rate of interest on county
finds and paid it over to tbs county,
and $1,513 SS in addition. His demo
cratic successor also turned in to ths
oouuty more thau the full legal rate of
interest, aud tbrse times as much In
two years as Mr. George did in four
years. Mr. George, sandwiched In be
tween them, paid in much less than
the legal rate on county funds, and so
legal steps have to be taken to prefect
tbe county's rights.
Mr. George, for aught we know, may
have doae the best he could. But he
did not do nearly so well as tbe law re
quires, nor nearly so well as tbe treas
urers who preceded aud succeeded
him. If he made so poor a shbwlng as
county treasurer, there is at least
ground for an intelligent suspicion
that he ! not doing all that could" be
done, and should be done, as state
Mr. George's democratic opponent
for the office of state treasurer, Mr.
Ilall, is a conservative, careful aud
successful bauker. He 1b one of the
Nebraska baukcrs who worked hard,
from the beginning, for a bank guar
antee law. There is no flaw or blot in
bis record. If elected, be can bo de
pended on to give the state a business
rather than a political administration
of the office. Under the circumstances
the well iuformed voter should not
hesitate long between those two candi
dates. World Herald.
ly be said that Mr. Morenead's Thurs
ton county trip was conducted by his
old republican friends.
lie delivered an eloquent plea at
Pender to tbs large crowd which greet
ed him for Nebraska to do her part to
ratify Wilson's election and promised
'that If thedemoorats were given charge
of Nebraska tbe state's affairs would
be managed ou a business basis with
the governor always at tbs belni,
watching tbs state's svery interest.
Congressman Stephens closed the

the progressives to vote for Woodrow

that could" possibly have a congress io

Seven automobiles accompanied the
party to Bancroft, where a good meet

Thurston county to Rosalia snd were
