County Superintendent.
A Sad Case.
Mrs. Bart J. Doyle , who was adjudged
insane by the board of insanity , last
Friday afternoon , was on Monday eve-
' ping taken to Lincoln for treatment in
the state asylum. Her husband , sister
Mrs. Fitzgerald , and brother Ed. Farrell ,
accompanied her on her sad journey.
Mrs. Doyle came here from Wymore
on a visit to relatives , was taken ill with
Pneumonia and insanity of a violent
form quickly developing. She is the
mother of four children , all under six
years of age.
Mr. Doyle has been working at Sheridan -
dan for some time. He and all the relatives -
tives of the afflicted woman have the
sympathy of all.
Eastern Land Agents.
On next Tuesday evening , August 13 ,
a Burlington special , carrying some
85 eastern land agents , will arrive in our
city , on a tour of this section of Nebras-
ka. They will take supper here , and
will then proceed up the Frenchman
line as far as Imperial , returning the
same night. They will then go on west
as far as Haigler and perhaps to Denver.
The party is made up of real estate
dealers from Ohio , Indiana , Iowa , liii-
nois , Missouri and other eastern states.
And they are guests of the Burlington ,
over whose extensive lines they are being -
ing carried for the purpose of advertising
the country through which the company
lines run.
Doubtless great and good results may
be expected to follow from such a corn-
mendable and characteristic enterprise.
Southwestern Nebraska promises to be
in fine condition to receive this notable
, company.
A Fable With a Moral.
Said the sheriff to the merchant , don't

before his eye. When his eye was opened -

his boots were in the hallway ; his coat
was on the stair ; hs trousers in the
kitchen , his collar on the shelf , but he
hadn't any notion where hewas himself.
When the morn was breaking , someone
heard him call ; his head was in the ice
box , and that was best of all.-Ex.
Alfalfa Is King.
We again want to call the attention of
our farmers to alfalfa culture. From a
furtherexamination of the reports received -
ceived by C. F. Babcock we find that
the results published , last week , are if
anything below the average.
The following list of alfalfa growers
report the product and value per acre
for 1894 as follows :
Perry Stone , . . . . . . . . . . . . . $ 00
S. E. Solomon ; Culbertson. . . . . . . . 7o oo
H. J. Cox , Benkelman. . . . . . . . . . . . 56 oo
C. W. McCombs , Wilsonville. . . . . . 6o oo
I. S. Meyer , Hendley. . . . . . . . . . . . . 90 oo
0. W. Clark , Beaver City. . . . . . . . . 7500
The average amount of seed sown per
acre , twenty pounds. A majority of
growers say the best time for seeding is
n March , April and May.
0. W. Clark of Beaver City says "No
fear of frosts" , and Mr. Clark has been
growing alfalfa for thirteen years.
C. E. Adams of Superior seeds in
April , May and September , Mr. Adams
reports having sown 20 pounds per acre
on 100 acres on the 20 , 22 , 23 , 24 of May ,
this year , on sod that was broken in
April and May , 1895 , and on July 28 , 1896 ,
cut I'z tons peracre. But the majority of
the growers say to thoroughly eradicate
the wild nature of the soil , especially the
low bottom lands that have more or less
clay Nearly all recommend broadcast
seeding , and say drill seeding compacts
the roots.
In view of the results herein shown , in
the dryest year in Nebraska history ,
with a soil particularly well adapted to
alfalfa , with no hardpan underneath to
check the growth of the roots or hold
the water too near the surface , and with
the showing made by such men as J. S.
Schmitz and R. P. High on land So and 75
feet above water , it appears to us the
day of redemption for southwestern Nebraska -
braska is at hand , and it rests enrirely
with our farmers. It is thoroughly demonstrated -
strated that the bottom and bench lands
are all capable of producing the same results -
sults as shown above. Now let every
farmer on the uplands prepare at least
5 acres of his farm. by deep plowing and
sub-soiling and in the spring seed his al-
falfa. You farmers who want to sell try
this and in a year you will have a field
of alfalfa that will cause you to raise the
price or withdraw your land from market -
ket and conclude that this countryis
good enough for you.
Lack of Courtesy.
We are enabled , this week , by copying
the same from the McCook Times-Dem-
crat , to present our readers with the text
of the call for the Republican Judicial
convention. But for lack of common
courtesy-not to speak of political pro-
priety-either on the part of Chairman
J. E. Kelley of this city , or Secretary
0. E. Butterfield of Haigler , we , would
have published the call last week.
Or , perhaps it was an oversight. We
would rather be charitable , if the facts
would warrant it. Eh ?
Land ! Land ! Land !
I have the largest list of lands on my
books of any agency in southwestern
Nebraska , and all of these lands can be
bought right and at prices that will make
the purchaser money. But in addition
to my regular list I have a few tracts
upon which I took options , last spring ,
and for the next 6o days I can sell these
lands at dry weather prices. There are
some very fine alfalfa lands among them.
