.r. 1 NINETEENTH YEAR. McCOOK , RED WILLOW COUNTY ; NEBRASKA , FRIDAY EVENING , AUGUST 1O , I9OO. NUMBER 13 The Danger Limit. A great many letters have come to the experiment station asking for advice as to pasturing sorghum. The publicity given to the injurious effects of sorghum through the investigations carried on by this station to ascertain the cause ha moved people not heretofore acquainted with this occasionally exhibited peculiar ity of the plant to become suspicious o it. While no further positive informa tion has been obtained on the subject there yet remains a word or two that may be profitably spoken. The records of this station do not show any cases of sudden death from sorghum occurring in the eastern portion of Nebraska , with the exception of a few which occurred on second growth sor- ghum. There is also reason to believe that plants producing this disastrous effect have not made a healthy growth , and are yellow and wilted , a condition easily detected by the farmer. It would therefore seem reasonable to conclude that no danger is to be encountered in pasturing sorghum of healthy growth in Eastern Nebraska. Again it would appear that no danger is incurred if the sorghum is fed after cutting and allowing to lie for some time. A sample of sorghum was recently received by the station with a letter ac companying it stating that the plants were parts of a very few partially eaten by a cow which was killed by them in two minutes. The sample was fed to a cow on the station farm without injur ing her in the least. This together with the fact that no poison has been detected in samples sent to the station for anal ysis would indicate that any toxic sub stances which the plants might have contained have become dissipated after cutting. The length of time required for this is not known , but it is certainly accomplished in a few days. As sorghum is undoubtedly the best annual midsummer forage crop for this region , it is important that its limita tions should be well defined. The use of healthy sorghum for pasturage with j the ordinary precautions in Eastern Ne braska , and of sorghum hay , may be considered safe. T. L. LYON.

They were on their journey to llinois on account of Mrs. Bartholo- new's ill health. They went up to layes county , first of the week , on a hort visit to her old home. It is remarked officially that while ravel to the Black Hills has been some- hing tremendous , this season , the nuni- ler of visitors to the grandeur of Yellow- tone park has been disappointingly mall , and most of them came from afar nd were elderly people. Doubtless the rouble with Yellowstone park is the act that the poor accommodations are ot at all in harmony with the heavy barges imposed everywhere. Next Thursday evening a Railroad Ten's club will be organized at this oint' The purpose of the club will be | j bring together the men in the differ- v ut branches of the service in an educa- c onal way , to give and receive ideas and iforinatiou along railroad lines.

Already quite a few of the em- loyes have shown and expressed interest the contemplated organization , of hich more later. A Good Fruit Year. Indications are multiplying that this has been so far an exceptionally good year for fruit. Lyman Miller exhibited at THE TRIBUNE office , this week , a number of samples of apples , plums , grapes etc. , grown on his farm on the divide north of the city , this season , which are indeed very fair articles and altogether encouraging. One specimen , a smallish apple of good flavor , Mr. Miller thinks can be raised here success fully witlfout much trouble. As to cher ries and plums , they do nicely almost any year. Mr. Miller's orchard is small but fairly thrifty , and has never been irrigated. The general difficulty has been to have apples grow to maturity ; this year , this draw-back has not been : o apparent , and the hope is revived that apples may grow to maturity without undergoing the spraying operation.

Shervell afterwards sought to have the doctor arrested for assault and battery , but as the doctor left the city per buggy after the fight he was not found. Shervell left the city on one of the night trains and failed to ap pear in county court this morning. Both were the worse for whisky. Hawkins Gets Life Sentence.
