Quite a number from Bartley attended the
Republican rally at this place on Wednesday-
The Republicans are preparing for another
rally on next Thursday evening , at which
some prominent speaker will be present.
Rev. Father Hickey of McCook celebrated
high mass in the Catholic church at this place
on Tuesday , returning home on No. 5 in the
Harry Coon , Bernard Hillers and VV. D.
Gillette started overland for Idaho , on Thurs
day morning. A good , stout , little pair of
mules furnished the motive power.
Messrs. Bayston and Smith of the present
county capital , passed through town early in
the week , having been in attendance of a
Bryan-Watson-Sewall meeting at Bartley.
R. P. High , candidate for representative ,
looked over the political field near the mouth
of the Classic Coon , Wednesday and Thurs
day of this week , and incidentally attended
the Republican rally , Wednesday evening.
J. S. Phillips journeyed to Hastings on Wed
nesday and saw and listened to the old Gen
erals that are making a tour of the west. He
returned home a little stiffer in the faith for
lots of good money.protection and reciprocity.
James Caldwell of Lincoln delivered a mas
terly address , on Wednesday night , at the
Opera House. He spoke from a Republican
standpoint. He had a crowded house that
paid the closest attention. He is a plain ,
forceful speaker , convincing and logical.
Rev. Sproll of this place assisted by a num
ber of other priests , conducted the service
this week known as the forty hours devotion.
It was largely attended by Catholics for miles
around. In point of numbers and faithful de
votion , the Rev. Father regards the services
as very successful.
Johnny Welborn of the firm of R , T. Wel-
born k. Son recently took a trip to the Pacific
coast as many thought on a tour of observa
tion. Johnny recently returned accompanied
by abonnie bride. They will be at home to
their friends at the parental residence in In-
dianola after the 1st inst.
John J. Lamborn and E. A. Sexson attended
the senatorial convention at McCook. Also
delegates Dolan , McCool and Gossard. The
nomination of Mr. Allen for state senator
seems to meet with general approval by the
Republicans , the Populists apparently prefer-

The Republicans and Populists both had
rousing rallies , Wednesday night , and seemed
to vie with each other in point of numbers and
attractive demonstration. The Republicans
had the largest number ot voters in line with
torches , estimated at about one-third more
than the Populists. The Populists were enter
tained by Uncle Johnny Powers after the
A gentleman from Omaha purchased a car
of horses at this place , this week , from the
farmers , the average price being about § 25 per
horse. During Republican rule these horses
would have been cheap at S75 to $100 each ,
but free trade , government bonds , and Popu-
listic vagaries have prostrated the business of
the country , until horses as well as other farm
products are reduced from 100 to 200 per cent _
and still many of them want more free trade
and cheaper horses and cattle and hogs. How
little we poor mortals do know.

. ABOUT KAFIR CORN.
Report from the United States Department
Like all other crops , Kafir corn yields
best on rich land. It responds well to
generous treatment. Its culture is not
limited to soils of certain classes and
qualities. It may be grown on stiff clays
and on light sand , in river bottoms and
on poor uplands , and it will yield profit
able returns on soil too poor for corn
Perhaps the strongest recommendation
of Kafir corn lies in the facfthat it will
produce a crop 011 less rain than is re
quired for corn , and that it is not affected
so disastrously by hot winds It is.there-
tore , especially adapted to the semi-arid
West , where corn succeeds only once in
five or six years because of the hot winds
and drouth. It is owing chiefly to this
quality that its culture has spread so
rapidly in Kansas and Oklahoma. Hot
winds are the main cause of the failure
of the corn crop in this region , and they
are never more destructive than when
they happen to come when the corn is
tasseling. They cause the pollen to dry
up , and the silk is not fertilized. Even
with a sufficient rainfall , a few days of
these withering blasts from the south
west , in tasseling time , may reduce the
yield of corn 50 per cent. Kafir corn is
not affected in the same way. Fertiliza
tion takes place more readily and the
whole plant is better adapted to stand
dry weather. The leaves are thicker-and
coarser than corn leaves , and do not dry
out so readily ; they are closer together
and partly protect each other , and the
plant is not so tall and , therefore , not so
much exposed. When corn has once
been stunted by drouth or hot winds , it
never recovers. Not so with Kafir corn.
It may remain stationary aiid curled for
days and even weeks , but when the hot
winds cease and rain comes , it will revive
and , if not too late in the season , will
still produce a crop of grain.
While it can be grown to perfection in
southern and middle latitudes , the north
ern limit of its successful culture is as
yet not well defined. In tests at the On
tario Agricultural College , the season
appeared to be too short for the grain to
mature. Henry does not consider it
suited to Wisconsin. The Michigan sta
tion regards it as inferior to corn as for
age. Possibly further trials may cause a
revision of these opinions , but it will ,
nevertheless , be wisest for the farmers in
the northern tier of states to grow it at
first only 011 a small scale.
The crop should be cultivated like sorghum
ghum or corn. The weeds should be
kept down from the start , using prefera
bly a spring-toothed cultivator which
will not throw the earth much , with fen
ders attached while the plants are small
to prevent covering them up.
The roots are near the surface. Inves
tigations at the Kansas station last sum
mer showed that the roots reach out 4 to
6 feet literally in all directions and that
most of them are from 2 to 6 inches from
the surface. Deep culture is , therefore ,
a mistake , since it destroys a large portion
tion of the feeders and to that extent
weakens the plants. The surface soil
should be kept mellow until the crop be
gins to head , then cultivation should
cease. If seeded about the middle of
Maj * , the plants will head early in Au
gust and the grain will be ripe about the
middle of September.
The crop should be cut and shocked
as soon as the grain is ripe. English
sparrows will damage it badly if they
have a chance. Over ripeness also causes
the white Kafir corn to swell when han
dled. Unlike coru , all varieties have * he
very desirable quality of remaining green
after the grain matures until killed by
frost. The fodder is , therefore , still in
excellent condition when the corn ripens ,
and when cured will make better feed
than if the plant had dried up as the
corn plant does.
The crop can be harvested in several
ways. At the Kansas station itis cut
with a sled cutter , which taker two rows
at a time. The cutter is pulled by one
horse and requires two attendants , one
to care for each row. The crop is col
lected in armfuls as cut , and shocked.
Any good corncutter will do the work.
It can of course , also be cut by hand if a
machine is not available. A light , short
crop may even be cut with a self-binder.
Some growers use a header , collecting
the heads only and leaving the fodder to
be eaten off by stock. The header will
cut off a large per cent of green leaves
with the heads , which renders the cur
ing of the latter , preparatory to the
thrashing , more difficult. In that case ,
it is best to pile them with layers of dry
straw to prevent heating.
