BULLETIN OF THE NEBRASKA EXPERIMENT -
Nl [ RESTING BESULTS SHOWN
Gov. Shnllenberger , Home from Short
Horn Breeders' Convention at Den
ver , Brings Cheering News.
Short Horn Breeder Premiums.
Governor Shalleiibergcr. on bin nr-
ival from Denver , Colo. , where ho
attended a meeting of Short Horn
ircdcrs , brought the cheering liiforma-
Ion that the national association has
decided to give Nebraska and Iowa
tate fairs $1.500 each for Short Horn
ircmluins the coming year.
Nebraska and Iowa had previously
) oen discriminated against in favor of
lie state of Minnesota , which enjoyed
he prestige of having its state fair of-
iclully known as the National Short
lorn show. That state also got. the
) ig share of the money. Now the un-
, ue advantage has been taken away ,
ind Nebraska and Iowa have an equal
hanco to attract the big feeders. Ne
braska's premium allowance was
alsed from $700 to $1,500 without the
tatc fair association being required
o contribute extra funds on account
of the extra allowance.
Hereafter no state will be allowed
o enjoy the privilege of running a
mtionnl Short Horn meeting in con-
lection with its state fair. Each will
attract the cattlemen on Its own mer-
ts. Under the previous arrangements
Minnesota enjoyed an undue ndvau-
ago , and Nebraska and Iowa had the
itilo end of the deal. How much Is
bought of these states as the coming
cglons for the development of the
Short Horn industry Is demonstrated
> y the fact that they get more money
or this year's state fairs than any
The Nebraska Experiment station
ias just issued Bulletin No. 12 on Ex-
> criments witli Corn. This bulletin Is
i report of the experimental work with
corn which has been curried on at the
station for several years. Copies may
> o obtained free of cost by residents
of Nebraska on application to the
Agricultural Experiment Station , Lin
coln , Nob.
The results secured by two methods
of conducting an ear-lo-a-row breeding
> lat arc reported. An average increase
of about eight bushels per acre has
been secured by selecting the best
yielding ears by means of the ear to
row test. Directions for conducting
nn ear to row breeding plat are also
The effect of different rates of plantIng -
Ing on the yield of grain and fodder
Is discussed , also the effect of thick
and thin planting on the value of ears
for seed. It has been found that seed
; rown in plats where the planting was
uniformly thick has given better re
sults than seed from thinly planted
The physical characters of the corn
plant that are to be considered when
selecting seed are also discussed , and
conclusions are stated Avhere experi
mental evidence will warrant.
The economic value of tillers is also
considered , the work being a continu
ation of that reported in Bulletin No.
91 , and largely confirming results se
cured at that time.
A comparison of different methods
of distributing seed In planting has
been made for two years. Corn planted
at a uniform rate of three grains per
illl has been compared with corn dis
tributed in various ways , as would be
the case if a planter were dropping
unevenly. Very little difference In
yield has been secured from the dif
ferent methods of distributing seed.

Deputy Labor Commissioner Will M.
Maupln will appear to prosecute about
twenty-live prominent Lincolnites Jan

the regulation touching the building
of fire escapes. It is likely that those
who show a disposition to comply with
the law will not find its majesty dif
ficult to appease. On the other hand ,
a few have indicated that they will
fight , and there is no question that
they will have their hands full of
trouble , for It is determined to enforce
Superintendents Get Busy.
County superintendents of Nebraska
will not depend upon the legislative
committee of the State Teachers' as

mittee had failed to deliver the goods.
Requisition for Bailey.
Governor Shnllonberger has Issued
a requisition for the return to Cherry
county of William Bailey , under arrest
in Now Mexico. Bailey is wanted on
a charge of Uorso stealing.
Surety Company Wins.
Judge Cornish decided that the
American Surety company was entitled
to do business In the state despite the
efforts of Attorney General Thompson
to oust it from Nebraska. In the case
of the state against the surety com
pany. In which the state asked for an
order from the court preventing the
company from doing business In Ne
braska , Judge Cornish ruled that the
demurrer of the defendants should bo
sustained. The judge upheld the In
surance legislation of the state , sayiug ;
the anti-trust law did not apply.

State Auditor Barton In receiving
numerous protests on his ruling that
before licenses will be Issued insur
ance agents It will bo necessary foi ;
the agents to fill out a blank card
showing how much business they have
written during the preceding year , the
amount of experience they have had
and other Information by which tha
auditor will be able to dotormlnq
whether the applicant Is a bona lido
Insurance agent or lu simply taking
out a license in order to secure a rej
bate from the Insurance company as
suming his risks.
The auditor informed one company
that it brought about the order itself ,
by reason of the fact that it gave to
certain persons with a lot of property
to insure a commission as agent
which permitted the person to secure
a rebate without violating the law. Al
the same time the person getting sucli
commission would write no other in
surance. The auditor has refused to
change his ruling.
Births in Nebraska.
During the year 1909 the number
of births in Nebraska was 23,051 ,
against 22,943 , and the deaths last
year were 10,305 , against 9,591 for
1908. The increase in the number of
deaths Is due to the largo numbei1
who died of spinal meningitis.
Cookery for School Girls.
State Superintendent E. C. Bishop
has Issued a ballet in for the Nebraska ,
school girls interested in domestic
science. It contains an elaborate
course in the art of cookery. The
outline of lessons was originated and' '
first used by the York High School
Girls' Domestic Science club. The work
was done at the home of the pupils.
The results were such that the follow- '
lug year the board of education fitted
up a domestic science laboratory , en
gaged a special teacher and established - )
lished a regular domestic science )
course of study.

mission asking for a new depot at that
place. Mr. Graves said the depot !
there would seat twelve persons and,1
usually the room was so full of foulj

Judge Gaslin , who died recently at.
Alma , was one of the most remarkable

Omaha he presided over the district
court in western Nebraska and his
decisions and rulings won for him a.
name of prominence. For many years
lie was a resident of Kearney. He
was first elected to the district bench
in the fall of 1875 , when the district
covered more than One-half of the area ,
of the state and was Infested by the
most notorious outlaws , desperadoes ,
