"L'ulit'H and genl'oman ' , memborK
> f the Cuslor County Horticultural
Society , It is no longer n question
is to weather we can grow cherries
for the market and at a good profit
ilthe prices they comiiiruid or not.
Many of you until rstaml that I
mvo settled this question lonft ago ,
the on'y ' question now remains how
to do it , 1 wish I could bo with you
I could giVM you more information
by talking than I ctn in a nliorl
japcr.- The hrHt tiling to take into
consideration IH the propcration of
Lhe soil. More
depends on Iho pro-
Deration and cultivation than on
location. You can grow ohnrncs
with good success in any ijood soil
whether hjlls or valleys , north ,
south , east or west slope if your
I uid is properly prepared before
nl.'inliiii' and trronrirlv unred for
afterwards. 1 ho
idea that we ciin
plant only on a northern or north
east slope with any ihing like a
certainty of success is more a theory
than a fad. Plow your giotind
not IOHS than M inches deep ( unless
it is sand ) and subsoil if you can ;
don't say you can't plow 11 inches
deep because if your plow and your
team ; at lensl I big horfcn are all
right ; you uin plow at least one
acre a day and plow it 1 1 inches
( loop. I UHod 'i horses ; you c.tn't
drag nny to much ; lay out , your
rows perfectly straight 'JO feet each
wuy , dig your holes II feet deep anil
; t feel Mjuaro. Oh ! you say llnl
is to much digging ; very well I am
just tolling yon how I make a MIC-
CCHS growing cherries When you
have found out how
jou can do it
as well with less worK , let us all
know how you doit. 1 always like

OK LAIKJMA NOT A PARADISH
.liilm V Ilelini Tells of His IXpcrii'iice
In Search of a Uutlcr Heine
John F. Hehm , an old resident of
Omaha , has just returned from a
trip to the recently-opened Indian
lands in Oklahoma , and brings biok
at ything but a glowing account of
IIIH experience ( hero , lie is of the
opinion that Nebraska is good
'f ( noiigh yet. Speaking of his qii'st
for a new homo in a now ,
Air. Melim says :
"The first thing you do when you
get to I.awton
, where the great
drawing look place last August , is
to go to the land oflien. Here you
ask the receiver if any v.utant
government land is left. Ho re
fers you to a clerk , and the latter
tells you he has no time to give
you , that you must go to some one
outside to get lou.tted.
' You are glad to get out of the
ollico and are followed by a half
dozen cappers who are ready to lo-
cato yon on some fraction , and who
only ask 810 for iho sorvijo If
you do not care lo dnii with them
on this hisis , the ne.vl slep is to buy
a rnliiKjiiisliment from
who has liled and in ready to quit
You find thet-o are only for sale at
the1 real esUto ollices , and are held
all iho way from JiiOO lo * 10,000.
It you buy ono you must do as iho
original nuttier , comply with all the
n quirement of the law nnd make
\oirr final proof u > duo form. This
is an additional expense.
"Tho Indians had first choice of
the land , every man , woman and
child getting a quarter section.
They chose all the bottom lands ,
with the water and loft the bench
lands for the while settlors. Hut
very little of this land is oed and
none of n has water. Down there
i pnurio farm with no certainty of
gelling water at any depth will nest
as much as an improved farm in
"Lawlon is the biggest town for
ils ago in the world. It is bill four
months old has five banks , fourteen
stores , twuntjone lumber yards and
ninoty-two saloons. Everything
t IhO is in proportion. Jutit now
th < y are grading streets and putting
crosswalks. Water is sold on the
streets at the rate of three pails for
a mokel If a fire should
-tart in L'lwton in ihicc hours tin,1
town would be wiped out.
"I buffered more from the cold
dowu there than J over did in Nebr
aska Last Saturday the
.ituro dropped in two hours from
10 above to zero. Ono of the
stories told illustrating the climate
is that a farmer from South Dakota
bought : i yoke of oxen and started
was overoome by the heat and died ,
While the far/nor was skinning Mm
the weaMier . 'hanged and the other
ox froze to death.
"AlmoHl every other building in
Lawtoniri devoted to MAW , real
estate and relinquishments
ana sold. ' This seems to bo the
chiol industry down there just now.
My advice to Nebrakans is don't
sell a Nebraska farm
, thinking you
can bolter your condition in Okla
homa. The soil down there is
good , but the rain is uncerlain and
the climate is no hotter than Nebr
aska. The Omaha Uoo , Feb. tl ,
