    THE FALLS.'GITyi TRIBUNE , FRIDAY MAY 22 { r < r * M > * >
Fruit Prospects More , Hopeful. ,
Erouf different portions of'tho
county are now eetiding
ingeporta of the condition of the
product. Since the past few dnys
of warm , sunny weather , the nctual
condition of the fruit can be ascer-
toified. ' !
Jouu T. Swan reports that out
of Kis 200 acres of apple orchard ,
there will be at least 95 acres on
which ho will realize not more than
100 bushels. The rest iffill uot
produce to exceed one-fourth crop.
On the bluffs near Peru and
from the higher orchards around
Browuville come reports of an al
most complete cherry crop. With
about half of the peach trees load
ed , others exhibit the -peculiar
phenomenon of the fruit being do-
strayed in spots , some in the top ,
others at the side of the trees , but
the total average is estimated at a
half crop.
From Stella comes the news that
Daniel Kroh had exhibited a peach
limb and cherry branch overloaded
with fruit * In the immediate
neighborhood of Stella all fruit is
in peed shape , but further south
the prospects are not so good.
All in all , fruit prospects are
much brighter than a week ago ,
when total failures seemed certain.
Auburn Herald.
Every time we have a late frost
a lot of people go around weeping
and wailing , and gnashing theii
teeth over the destruction of the
fruit crop in a manner that would
make a stranger in these parts be
lieve that every man in Nebraska
is depending upon his next fruit
crop to pay off the mortgage oil
his farm , when the fact is our fruit
crop is like the old woman's trou
bles the biggest part of it never
happened. We have lived in Ne
braska ever since we were old
enough to know better , and we
can truthfully say that the only
"large" crops of fruit ever raised
here were killed by the late frosts ,
and our observation prompts the
belief that every dollar's worth of
fruit harvested in Nebraska hae
cost ten dollars in cash or its equiv
alent labor. It is all right tc
dinkey with a small strawberry bed
or a few gooseberry bushes , provided -
vided you haven't got anything
else to do , but if you have , you
had better be doing it. Nebraskc
is a corn state her equal does uol
lie under the shining sun hei
horses , cattle , sheep and swim
graze and wax fat on a thousand
hills ; she has more happy homes
more prosperous and contented
people and more pretty wouiei
than any state in this peerlesi
union , and we have money enougl
to import Ben Davis apples ant
Alberta peaches from Arkansaw
but this is not a fruit country anc
we may as weil acknowledge it
If every fruit tree in Nebraski
should be struck by lightning to
night it would not occasion i
ripple in the financial sea. Thesi
are facts as we are able to elucidati
them , and we never joined thi
Knocker's Club either , althougl
we expect to be provided with ai
honorary membership just as sooi
as this opinion is handed down.

Drainage Aleeting Ends In Row
The Falls City corresponden
to the State Journal has this t
say in regard to a session of th
drainage board in Salem , Moc
day afternoon :
"During a session of thedrair
age board at Salem this aftei
noon , R. E. Grinstead , a inembe
of the board , was knocked dow
and kicked by Geo. L. Coon ,
merchant of Salem , whose clan
ior damages had been aote
upon by the board adversely t
Coon's interest , as he believed.

lanting greater than on the
Dairies ot Minnesota and the
Dakotas , and nowhere is it more
rofitable for commercial re
urns. Protection from "wind
nd storm is essential for the
ivell-being of the family , the
tock , and the orchard. Indeed ,
i many cases it is the presence
nd shelter o belts of trees
.bout the farm building , with
heir continuous supplies of fuel ,
hat mark the distinction be-
ween the comfortable home and
he one wherein comtort is lack-
ng. Owners estimate the value
t good groves , on an average ,
f $1,000 an acre , on the basis
hat their property , if placed
upon the market , would be in-
reased to that extent by the
rees. Bankers and land agents
ake special note of thrifty
groves , for they have learned
hat buyers are ready to pay
'or the protection and comfort
f a grove. The effectiveness
> f the grove as , a windbreak is
determined largely by the num.
jer and kind of trees planted
and their relative positions.
When planting for direct profit
s contemplated , inquiry be-
omes necessary into (1) ) the
market , (2) ( ) the cost of produc-
ion , and (3) ) the species planted.
Vs a result of the absence of
natural supplies , posts , poles
md fuel wood are shipped into
his region from northern Min.
nesota at a freight rate of 10
cents a hundred weight , or about
$3.50 a cord. .This , with the
original selling price and the
Sealer's profit , brings the local
elling price up to from $7 to
: > ! ! a cord.
The value of the landls usually
lie largest item in the cost of
producing a wood crop. Al-
hough the best soil will pro
duce timber most rapidly , yet
ough , sandy , or occasionally
overflowed situations can also
usually be utilized. In select.
ng a tree for commercial plant-
ng its hardiness in the climate
and situation is most important.
tVtter that , rapidity of growth
and the quality of the wood ,
especially its suitability to serve
ocal demands , are considered.
Cottonwood and white willow
are profitable on the deep , porous
ous soils of the river valleys.
Seven cottonwood groves yield
ed in lumber and fuel an average
annual net return per acre of
$10.67 , while eight groves oi
white willow gave products of
posts and fuel equal to an aver.
age annual net return of § 21 per
acre. European larch and
Scotch pine , produce , respect
ively , an annual net return per
acre of $11.93 and $13.35 when
planted on upland , and would
do even better in the river val
leys. White spruce , Norwaj
spruce , and western yellow pint
are also adapted for planting
for windbreak purposes. It
species ior park , lawn and road
side planning , symmetry and
gracefulness are important con
Cuttings are usually used ir
establishing a plantation o
willow or cottonwood. The ex
pense is little or nothing. Seed
lings ot broadleaf trees are easily
procured. Unfortunately , conit
erous stock is inexpensive
Considering , however , their higl
protective value in the winter
and their ability to resist drouth
heat , cold , storm and snow pres
sure , and the quality of the woo <
produced , conifers have prove <
more desirable for permanen
plantations than broadleafs.

information and directions abou

Falls City to Sec the Burwood
Theatre Stock Co. from Omaha.
Manager Gchliiig is cotiRrattf
ating himself over the result of ,
a long distance 'phone ' talk he
lad Saturday with the Burwood
vTheatre in Omaha. I sccms that
Irs. Fisk is'to play in 'the ' Bur-
vood Theatre , June ,4 , , ' 5 , . and 6 ,
xml in order to make room for her
he superb Stock Company , which
las been playing at the Burwood
ill the season , is to go on the
oad for six nights , after which
t returns to the Burwood to rc-
, ume its run. So with his cus-
omary enterprise Manager Gell
ing "got busy , " and knowing
hat Falls City would appreciate
i bouafide high-grade attraction ,
ic succeeded in arranging for the
company to play on Thursday
jvcning , June 4 , in Falls City ,
-\nd it is safe to predict that our
citixens will endorse his effort to
bring us a known attraction of
he very highest class by packing
he GchlingThcatretoits utmost
In Omaha the company enjoys
he patronnge of thousands every
week and its members are cnter-
ained socially in the homes of
the most exclusive circle of the
social set. The Burwood Stock
Company is a permanent itistitu-
itition in Omaha and really is
ooked upon as being a most de
sirable necessity.
The piece to be played here
will be ' 'The Man from Mexico , "
most hilarious societ } comedy
and formerly played by the emi-
icnt comedian , William Collier.
[ n Omaha the Burwood company
produces one play for an entire
week and the fact that "The
Man from Mexico" is to be played
the entire week previous to the
trip , assures a fine performance
liere. Special scenery from the
Bur wood Theatre will be brought
to Falls City , and the pioduction
staged with the same careful at
tention to every detail.
That this is to be the social
event of the season goes without
further comment. Falls City
should pack the Gehling Theatre
or this last and best attraction
of the season *
How proud liiawatha is of her
