THE ORLEANS & ST. FRANCIS.
A Pen Picture of the Beaver Valley ,
July the 15th.
The music of the reaper is heard in the
valley of the Beaver , singing its song of
prosperity. The golden sheaves dot the
stubble-field and cone-like stacks of
wheat loom up everywhere as sentinels
of better times. Harvest is pouring its
wealth into the coffers of the farmers
and soon the hum of the thresher will be
heard throughout the length and width
of the Orleans and St. Francis country ,
from Blakeman , Kansas , to Orleans , Ne
Small grain is gaining all the scores in
the game of the seasons and the goose
eggs are all found on the side of calami
ty. A great wheat crop , fully up to the
expectations of the most sanguine , is
being harvested , with an estimated yield
of from 20 to 35 bushels per acre.
The Burlington will be kept busy in
hauling this immense crop with * a busi
ness that it has not enjoyed since 1891.
With the wheat crop insured it is estim
ated that 7,000 carloads will be shipped
off this line , this season.
Corn is doing its best , and is of rank
growth , good color and full stand. No
where in Nebraska is it eclipsed , it is
today a sea of waving plumes tasseling
in the midsummer sun , uniform in size
and unspotted with stunted growth , the
result of replanting and cut wornjs.
Never has this King of Grain been more
promising , and a few weeks of seasona
ble weather will place it secure beyond
the pale of doubt.
Alfalfa is so heavy a crop that it can
not be harvested by ordinary methods ,
and it takes stackers and improved ma
chinery to gather the great 3'ield. It is
so plenty that the uncut crop is selling
for 50 cents per acre. Huge ricks dot
the meadows for miles , still there is
much left for seed.
Potatoes is a good crop and vegetables
Rawlins county , Kansas , will have
equally as good a yield of wheat as in
1892. The acreage is nearly 50,000 acres.
43,000 acres of corn in good condition are
within its limits. Atwood , the Queen of
the Upper Beaver , the best town on the
Orleans and St. Francis branch of the
Burlington except Beaver Citj * , that has
stood the hard times better than any
county seat in the extreme northwestern
Kansas , will return to her oldtime vigor
and prosperity. With a bountiful wheat
crop assured and a promising crop of
corn there is much to feel encouraged
over. For 100 miles west from Orleans
on the St.Francis branch of the Burling
ton the crops are good. The prospects
of Decatur county , Kansas , are splendid ,
with 32,000 acres of wheat of good yield
secure and 98,000 acres of corn of good
growth. The Beaver valley and adjacent
territory will show up with any section
at this time as it appears on the 15th of _
July. H. C. F.
