Corn l'romWc n I.tirRo Yield, Itxcnpt In
the Mntc'a Cliirdon Spot.
McCook. Neb., Aug. 2C On crossing
the Missouri Hlvcr running to Lincoln,
the Burlington land agents' party
found a prospect which, from an agvl
tultural Etandpolnt, could not be ox
celled. Corn Js luxuriant and sturdy
and every stalk shows large-sized ears
sticking out from It. It Is so far ad
vanced that tho uninitiated could bo
made to believe very readily that It la
past all harm from any source. Not
withstanding its fine appearance, how
ever, It is not yet out of danger of frost,
and will not bo for at least two weeks.
A fine crop of oats has been reaped In
thiB section. Much of It Is still in tho
shock and a good deal of It has been
stacked. It Is thrashing out from
thirty to fifty bushels to tho acre and
Wlll averago about forty. Tho wheat
crop has all beeu harvested, and farm
ers aro now busy plowing their land
preparatory to putting In another crop
of winter wheat
Leaving Lincoln tho outlook Is much
less promising. Between Wavcrly and
Fairmont, a distance of sixty miles, la
a stretch of country which has usually
been described bb the garden spot of
Nebraska. Crops have always been
abundant here, however poorly they
may have been In other parts of tho
state. Last year and this year have
been tho only known exceptions to this
rule. Somehow this belt has suffered
severely this year. It ha3 rained copi
ously on nil sides of it and all around
it, but tho clouds refused to glvo It a
drop of moisture until too late to save
tho corn crop. For a stretch o coun
try sixty miles long and sixty miles
wldo the corn crop Is a comparatlvo
failure. It will only run from a quarter
to half a crop, averaging as a wholo
about one-third an ordinary crop.
Oats have not faired so badly. They
are thrashing out from thirty-five to
forty bushels an acre. Heavy rains fell
over this section at the end of last week
They camo too late, however, to save
the bulk of tho corn. Very much of it
is wilted beyond redemption and a good
deal of it has already been cut for fod
der. Wheat in this section is thrashing
out fifteen bushels to tho acre.
West of Fairmont tho scene again
changes and an ocean of waving corn,
strong and luxuriant, is to be seen as
far as tho cyo can reach in every dlrcc
tion. The crop from Hastings to tho
western boundary of tho state Is prac
tically made, and nothing but a killing
frost can now blight It It will average
not less than sixty bushels to the acre,
and very many largo fields will yield
fifty bushels.
Around McCook Is where the disas
ters of last year were most severely
felt. Tho gains of this year have nioro
than made up for tho losses then sus
tained. The wholo section of country
looks llko a verltablo garden, and tho
pcopleifeel buoyant beyond expression.
Winter wheat Is thrashing out about
twenty bushels to the aero and the beat
fields aro yielding thirty bushels.
Spring wheat is running from twelve
to eighteen bushels to the acre. Ont3
average from fifty to sixty bushels, tho
best fields thrashing out 100 bushels.
Alfalfa is a now crop hero with
which the peoplo aro delighted. All
kinds of live stock cat it with relish,
and it is proving to be fattening fodder.
The first year it yields one ton to tho
acre, but after the third year it yields
three crops a year, which foot up seven
and one-half tons to tho acre. It la
worth In tho market $5 per ton, but to
feed cattle the results have shown It to
bo worth ?70 per acre. It Is tho coming
crop all along tho the flats of tho Re
publican valley.

ELL, old fellow, I
wish you Joy," sold
Huntly Johnson,
when his friend
Dick Beaufort, af ttr
the fashion of thf
newly-accepted lov
er, had finished a
panegyric In praise
of his lady-love.
Dick Beaufort and
Huntly Johnson
were bosom friends:
as young lawyers thoy occupied the
same chambers in the city, and had
never In their lives had a -serious quar
rel. "Don't you think she Is quite tho
loveliest girl In London. Huntly?" con
tinued Beaufort, ardently.
"Yes, old man," replied his friend, "I
think ohe Is much better looking than
that celebrated actress, Kitty Haw
thorne, whom you cr well, were
rnther sweet on, don't you know?"
I "I ccrtnlnly did make a fool of my
self over that girl, but that was some
time apo. I hope Dorothy has never
heard about It. You know, she Is Just a
little bit Jealous." said Dick Beaufort, a
trifle uneasily.
"Yes, I believe she Is rather Jealous,"
said his friend.
"How In the world can you know
anything about It, old chap," said Beau
fort, rather surprised: "but I have
heard you were rather gone on her your
self not long ago, and, In fact, that you
proposed to her, eh?"
"Perhaps I did," said Johnson, star
ing hard at the celling.
"Well, I'm going out this evening.
Sorry I can't ask you to come with me.
Hope you'll enjoy yourself, old man."
"I dare say I shall," responded John
son, trying to force n smile. "I think I
know where you are going; at any rate,
it is nowhere where an old bachelor like
myself Is wanted."
The door banged, and Huntly John
son was left alone with his thoughts,
which were not of the most pleasing
"So she has Jilted me and accepted
Dick Beaufort, has she?" soliloquized
the young man. "Well; I always
thought that I was rather more of a
favorite with the girls than he, but
then, ho Is so handsome." He thought
for some time, anil as he pondered his
face grow darker and darker. "No," be
suddenly shouted, "he sha'n't marry
her; though he Is my greatest friend.
God knows I love her more than I do
him. But how" can I prevent It?" He
thought ngaln for some time, and then
murmured to himself, softly: "I know.
What Is the good of a hobby If one
does not use It for practical purposes?"
It must here be explained that Huntly
Johnson was an exceedingly successful
amateur photographer, and he had
some time ago learned how to do what
Is called In the phraseology of the pho
tographer "double printing." This con
sists in printing different pictures on the
paper by means of using two distinct
negatives. Now, Huntly Johnson had
taken a snap-shot of Dick Beaufort
kissing his sister some time back, which
Miss Farquhar had not seen; he had al
so taken a photo of Kitty Hawthorne.
He now proposed to print Kitty Haw
thorne's face Instead of Miss Beaufort's
Into the photograph, and as the two
girls were of similar size and build, the
photograph would appear to represent
Dick embracing Kitty Hawthorne. If
Dorothy were to see this photograph,
Johnson reflected that sho would prob
ably break off her engagement with
Dick Beaufort Immediately, especially
as the photograph would be carefully
dated some days after her betrothal. It
was a mean trick to play any man, and
Huntly Johnson felt more than ever
ashamed of himself for acting In such a
dishonorable manner toward his old
friend. But he was of a very firm na
ture, and had determined that by fair
means or foul he would prevent the
Tho next morning Johnson went to
hln dark-room, and, bringing out the
negatives, succeeded, by means of the
process, before described, In producing
the desired result. He chuckled to him
self when he thought of the effect which
It would have on Dorothy Farquhar, but
his pleasure was considerably lessened
when he pictured to himself the pain
which he would cause a friend who had
always acted nobly toward him.
As Dick Beaufort was going out that
evening, Johnson asked him If he
thought Miss Farquhar would care to
come In on a certain date which he men
tioned and look over some photos which
he had taken lately. Dick Beaufort
knew that Dorothy, who took what is
called a "sisterly Interest" In Huntly
Johnson, would be pleased to come, es
pecially as she took a great interest in
photography herself; so he replied:
"Certainly, old fellow. I'll give her your
message. I'm sorry that I have an en
gagement on the 15th, but I have no
doubt yqu two will be quite interested
discussing photography."
Johnson thought it Just as well that
Dick should be out on that particular
date, and he quite agreed with his
friend that Dorothy Farquhar and ho
would be very much Interested, perhaps
painfully so as to one party,
Huntly Johnson had all his latest
photographB In readiness on the day In
question, and as he heard the knock at
the door which announced Miss Far
quhar's arrival, he placed a certain
photograph on the table In a fairly con
spicuous place.
Johnson forgot all about Dick and the
shabby trick he was playing him as he
talked to this charming girl. "What
lovely photographs you take, Mr. John-
, son. I really think they are better than
phffll in
ml SX
traits are so extremely llfc-llk. Now,
this ono of Oh, Mr. Johnson, whatever
Is this? Dick, and and an notress;
taken yesterday, too! Oh, It can't b
my Dick." The poor girl sank Into a
chair, and It was only Johnson's- prcs
one which restrained her from trying.
For the first tlmf, Huntly Johnson
felt slneerelv sorry for her. but he real
ised that he had put his hand to the I
plough, and that he could not now turn
"I er that Is, I ronlly am very sorry
that you have seen that photograph. I
did not know It was on the tnble."
By this time Miss Farquhar, being
a very seIf-posossod girl, hud qulto re
covered herself.
" "Will you bo so good as to give me a
sheet of note paper and a pen, Mr. John
son?" she said, coldly.
"Certainly; can I bo of any use to you
In any other way, Miss Farquhar?"
"No, thank you. I merely wish to
write Mr, Beaufort n short note," re
turned the girl.
She at down and, though Johnson
could tee she was still very much af
fected, wrote on bravely tor a few min
utes; then sho handed the note to Hunt
ly Johnson, requesting him to give It to
Mr. Beaufort, and wishing him n good
afternoon, left the house with a firm de
termination never to return to It.
Presently Dick entered the room.
"Oh, I thought I should arrive before
she left," he said In a rather disap
pointed tone. "A note from her,
though. How awfully sweet of "her to
write." Huntly Johnson was seized
with a sudden fear lest Dorothy might
have betrayed him In the note she had
written. "Whatever Is this?" shouted
Beaufort, as he glanced over tho first
line of the note,
"Look here, Huntly," cried the young
man, clutching hold of his friend's arm,
"what can sho mean by writing about
'faithlessness,' "love for nnother wom
an,' etc? Look at the lettor, man."
Huntly's race turned ghastly white
as he took the letter from the other's
trembling hand, but as ho read on he
looked more relieved.
"I'm afraid she means to give you
up, old boy. She enld nothing to mo
about It, though.. I should go and see
her If I were you: there Is evidently
some misunderstanding."
Johnson knew he was quite safe In
saying that much, as he felt sure Doro
thy would refuse to see Dick. At any
rate it would get hlrn out of the way for
a time.
"By Jove. I think I will," said
Beaufort, slightly cheered by this
suggestion: and rushing out of tho
room, he made his way to Doro
thy's house, which was not far dis
tant. Looking at his watch, he found
It was still early In the evening, and he
felt quite certain of seeing his lady-love
and explaining everything there and
then. On Inquiring for Miss Farquhar,
Beaufort was Informed that she was en
gaged, and could see him on no pretext
"Tell her that I must see her. It Is
a matter of Importance."
But the servant merely repeated her
message, and would not even agree to
take Miss Farquhar a small note, scrib
bled on half a sheet of note paper.
"Miss Farquhar said she would see you
on no account whatever, sir," was all
that the maid would say.
The door shut In Dick Beaufort's face
and ho was left alone on the doorstep;
he remained there thunderstruck for u
few minutes and'then slowly walked on,
wondering what on earth could have
given rise to Dorothy's unfair accusa
tions. He paying attentions to a wom
an whose character was, to say the
least of it, shady! Was U likely that
when he had gained the love of a crea
ture little short of an angel In his es
timation, he would be trying to do the
same thing with another woman?
Someone must have been giving her
false Information about him, that was
certain. But who could be the culprit?
Probably one of her admirers, who was
Jealous of his success. Could It be
Huntly Johnson? "The thought chased
Itself quickly through his brain, and
left It ns speedily as It had entered. No;
It was an ungenerous thought; he felt
certain that his old friend would be in
capable of such an action.
Huntly Johnson waB In his own sit
ting room ns Dick entered the house.
"She won't even see me," the latter
cried, throwing open tho door, breath
less with excitement; "Isn't It a shame,
Huntly? I've done nothing to deserve
her throwing me over like this. I think
some cad must have been telling her
lies about me."
Huntly Johnson winced at this, but,
luckily for him, Beaufort did not notice
It. Beaufort walked to the table, and
began absently to turn over some pho
tographs which were lying there. Sud
denly tho other saw him start as he took
up a photograph In his hand; Johnson
made a wild clutch at It but It was too
"Johnson, what does this moan?"
shouted the young man. "A photograph
of me kissing Kitty Hawthorne! Im
possible! I never did such a thing in
my life." Suddenly his former suspicion,
that Johnson was the cnuso of all this
trouble, returned to him. "Johnson,
don't deny It," he sold; "confess that
you did this out of spite because I was
going to marry Dorothy Farquhar."
An explanation ensued. Johnnon was
certainly subdued and humiliated by
Dick Beaufort's kindness. He offered
to make tho only amends In his power,
namely to go to Dorothy's house and
confess everything. At first, In answer
to his knock, a message was returned
that Miss Farquhar was engaged and
refused to see him, but by dint of per
severence he was at last allowed to en
ter. Dorothy at first treated him coldly,
but on learning tho object of his visit
she reproached him bitterly for his du
plicity, but radually began to take a
more lenient view of his conduct, and
at last forgave him.
Huntly Johnson returned home some
what sad, but happier than he had been
for several days. Dick Beaufort and
Dorothy were married three months
later, and thus ended "The Story of a

. A tract of land comprlslng'abnnt 155
acres Just outside tho western limits of
Baltimore city, In the Thirteenth dis
trict of Baltimore county, and south of
St. Agnes' Hospital nnd St. Mary's In
dustrial School, was offered for sale at
auction Wednesday, at the Real Estate
Exchange, but was withdrawn after
five small parcols, Including forty-two
acres, had been purchased at an aver
age price of $327 an acre, says the Bal
timore Sun. The property Is a portion
of the lands owned In Maryland by tho
late Duchess of Leeds, a granddaugh
ter of Charles Carroll of Carrollton, and
daughter of Blchard Caton, aftor whom
the town of Catonsvllle Is named.
The Duchess died In 1S74, and In her
will directed that the real estate owned
by her In this county should be dis
posed of by her executors, and tho
ironey thus secured should be used for
the purchnse of real estate In England,
all of which, together with the English
realty which sho possessed at the time
of her death, was bequeathed for llfo to
tho Marquis of Carmarthen which Is
the courtesy title of the heir to the
Dukedom of Leeds. The present holder
of the title Is the grandson of a cousin
of the Duchess" husband, sho having
died without children.
The property put up at nuctlon Is
but a part of the estates In several
counties In Maryland Which came to her
from Charles Carroll of Carrollton and
his daughter. It was offerod at first as
a whole, but no bids being made for this,
the choice of fourteen parcels of It was
next offered. Tho bidding for first
choice was a bit spirited, nnd It was
finally "knocked down" for $390 an aero
to Buxton M, Bidgely. After that the
prices offerod became steadily smaller
until the fifth purchase, whan Auction
eer Kirkland announced, after a con
sultation with the American trusteed
of the ostate, Anthony A. Hirst and
Alexander Yearley, Jr., that the re
mainder of the land wns withdrawn.
"We had expected to get at least f400
an acre," said Mr. Kirkland," and not a
bit of It can be secured for less than
J27G an acre."
The Duchess of Leeds was one of the
three famous daughters of HIchard
Caton, who from their beauty and
charms were often called "the three
American graces." They became the
wives of members of the British nobil
ity. Louisa Catherine, the Duchess of
Leeds, was the youngest of the trio.
Mary Caton, the eldest, was at first tho
wife of- Blchard Patterson of Baltimore,
brother of Mme. Elizabeth Patterson
Bonaparte, but In 1825 boenme tne
seoond wife of the famous Marquis of
Wellosley, elder brother of the still
more famous Duke of Wellington.
Elizabeth Caton was married In 18SC to

A man doesn't like to havo a woman use

ono of them. Every one is deceitful.
In Our Great Grandfather's Time,
big bulky pills were in
general use. Like the
"Diunucrnuss" ot
that decade they
were big and clum
sy, but ineffec
tive. In this cent
ury of enlighten
ment, wc nave
Dr. Pierce's
rieasant Pel-
lets, which
cure all liver,
btomach and
bowel de
rangetnents i a
the most effec
tive way.
If people
would pay more
attention to uron-
eily regulating the action of their bowels,
by the use of these little "Pellets" they
would have less frequent occasion to call
for their doctor's services to subdne attacks
of dangerous diseases. The " Pellets ' cure
tick and bilious headache, constipation, in
digestion, bilious attacks and kindred de

Little Thing nf Life.
Why is It that wo so easily forgot
that tho llttlo things In life aro what
mako It easy or hard? A few pleasant
words, a warm hand-clasp, a cordial
lottcr aro simple things, but they are
mighty In their Infiueuco ou tho lives
of those about us, uddlng a ray of hopo
to many disconsolate hearts, giving
courage to disappointed, weary ones,
und helping at tho same time to mako
our own lives sweeter. Fow peoplo
realize how much tho llttlo attentions,
of every-day llfo moan to their associ
ates In the home, society and the place
of business. It is generally a lack of
consideration that makes ono forgot
tho tiny pleasantries; but lack of con
sideration is really ono form of selltsh
ncss, and selfishness is not a dcslrablo
quality. Ho member that tho llttlo
tilings in life, either good or bad, count
for more with thoso wo lovo than wo
over know, and wo should bo watchful
of our nutlons and of our words.
