    Must Be More Definite.
Common carriers that make state
railway commissioners plenty of trou-
ftle by flinging at every order or at
tempt at regulation the contention that
the orders are "confiscatory , non-com
pensatory" and contrary to the "due
process" clause of the fourteenth
amendment to the federal constitu
tion , must go about their work more
carefully under a ruling of the circuit
court for the state of Oregon. A copy
of the decision has 'been received by
the Nebraska state railway commis
sion and has been read with much in
terest. In this case the Oregon com
mission had issued an order requiring
the reduction of certain class rates
south from Portland. The railroads
asked for an injunction on the tradi
tional grounds that the order was un
reasonable , non-compensatory , taking
property without due process of law ,
etc. The railway commission de
murred , stating that the defendant
liad stated no cause of action.
District Judge Bean , upheld the de
murrer , stating that the railroad had
made no showing that the order was
unreasonable , but had .merely so de
For a Consumptive Hospital.
Three members of the four on the
board o-f public lands and buildings
have offered Al Dann of Kearney $24-
000 for the residence erected there
many years ago by George W. Frank ,
speculator and promoter. The prop
erty is now owned by Mrs. Grothan ,
the former wife of Dr. Grothan , who ,
until 1907 , used the property for hos
pital purposes. The board has not re
ceived notice as to whether the offer
will be accepted. If it is the property
will be used for a hospital for indi
gent consumptives. The last legisla
ture appropriated $40,000 for the erec
tion of a hospital , with $10,000 for
Fainting Bertha to an Asylum.
Warden Delahunty has taken "Faint
ing Bertha" to the Hastings asylum.
The warden was accompanied by his
mother , who is matron of the peniten
tiary. The woman prisoner was re
ceived by Superintendent Kern and
will be confined in a place where she
cannot by her actions disturb others.
She has been a source of trouble at
the .penitentiary . and the penitentiary
. medical board recommended , that she
"be taken to an asylum because of lack
of facilities for her care at the prison.
May Use Anti-Typhoid Serum.
It is possible that anti-typhoid
serum will be used in combating the
epidemic of fever at the institute for
feeble-minded in Beatrice. Lieutenant
Colonel Birkner of the national guard
believes that the war department will
furnish the serum. State Health Inspector
specter Wilson is willing that the
serum be tried , if it can be procured
from the war department , but he is
not convinced of its efficacy nor is he
sure that the malady prevalent at
Beatrice is typhoid fever.
Canned Tomatoes Condemned.
Mrs. Macmurphy , inspector for the
Nebraska state food commission ,
seized and condemned seven and one-
half tons of canned tomtaoes and per
sonally superintended the dumping of
the entire amount of spoiled food into
the Missouri river at Nebraska City.
There were 5,000 cans of the con
demned goods and two trips with a
big dray were required to dispose of
the stuff.
Failing to get a restraining order
from federal court to protect them
from the provisions of the Housh anti-
graft enterprise law , the Magazine and
Book company of New York has ob
tained temporary injunction from
District Judge Stewart of Lancaster
county , restraining Governor Aldrich
and County Attorney J. B. Strode of
this county from enforcing the law.
The Minneapolis Cereal Mills have
also begun a suit of similar nature ,
aimed at the food commissioner.
These suits are all part of a compre
hensive attempt toput the Housh law
out of business.
Coin Turnstiles at State Fair.
A new departure at the 1911 state
fair , September 4th to 8th , will be the
coin turnstiles at the general admis
sion gates.Instead of the customary
stop and purchase of a ticket at an
outside ticket office , the fair visitor
will walk to the turnstile and lay down
his fifty-cent piece , which drops into
a slot , releasing the lock and permit
ting the person to pass through.
Therefore , when you come to the state
fair this year be sure to have a 50-
cent.piece , as nothing else will unlock
the turnstile.
Given Temporary Restraining Order.
Chester H. Aldrich , governor of Ne
braska , and William R. Jackson , depu
ty food commissioner , were made de
fendants in an action when the Min
neapolis Cereal company secured a
temporary restraining order , forbid
ding the officials mentioned from in
terfering with it in the sale of a break
fast food manufactured by it , and from
enforcing or attempting to enforce
that portion of the pure food law
which forbids the giving of any pres
ent or premium with any food pro-
. . duct.
Valuation as Shown by Counties
Other Matters at the Capital of
the State.
Three members of the state board
of assessment , Land Commissioner
Cowles , Auditor Barton and Secretary
of State Wait , met to begin the annu
al work of equalizing values of as
sessable property. Secretary Henry
Seymour had elaborate tabulations
prepared for the board to begin work
on the equalization of live stock in
the various counties. All counties
with the exception of Boone and
Scutts Bluff counties have * reported
abstracts of assessable property. If
these two counties report the same
amount that was listed last year the
total assessed valuation of the state
will be $415,744,876 , or $3,606,269
more than last year's values. Lan
caster and Douglas counties com
bined reported an increase of $3,166-
349 this year , so these two counties
alone account for nearly all of the
increase in the total of this year.
There are 902,743 head of horses in
the state , 2,188,818 cattle , 88,484
mules , and 1,932,413 hogs.

Experimental Station Enlightens as if
His Growth.
The Nebraska Experiment Station
has just issued Bulletin No. 121 , en
titled , "Growing Hogs in Nebraska. "
This bulletin is divided into two parts.
Part I.
Part I gives a summary of the cost
of growing young pigs to the weight
of 50 pounds. The items of cost taken
into consideration include the cost of
keeping the sow for an entire year ,
charging for the pasture and the grain
eaten , both by the sow and by the lit
ter , up to the time the litter reaches
an average weight of 50 pounds. On
this basis the cost is about $18 to $20
for keeping old sows , and $20 to $22
for gilts or sows farrowing their first
litter. This coat is partly repaid by
the increase in weight of yearling
and two-year-old sows. After deduct
ing the value of the growth of foe
sows , the net cost to be charged
against the pigs is from $9 to $12 per
litter when they reach the 50-pound ,
average weight.
The average number of pigs far
rowed in these experiments was 9.8
pigs for old sows and 8 pigs for young
sows. The average number per litter
at the close of the experiment was 6.5
pigs for old BOWS and 6 pigs for young
sows. In the test , 44 old sows and 50
young sows were used.
The cost of feed charged up against
each pig at 50 pounds weight was
$2.13 as the average of all sows for
two years. This makes the cost of
producing pigs up to 50 pounds $4.26
per hundred , which Is somewhat
higher than the cost of gains after
that weight , provided the pigs are
eeconomically fed and sold when they
reach about 225 pounds weight.
To reduce tlfe cost of the figures
given in this bulletin , the yearling and
older sows were kept upon pasture
alone during the pasture season after
weaning their litters and upon rations
of about one-half alfalfa hay and one-
half grain during the winter season.
In winter , for each 100 pounds weight
of the mature sows , one and one-half
pounds of grain was fed daily ; that
is , if ten sows weigh 3,000 poumds
they would require 45 pounds of grain
daily , with an equal amount of alfalfa
hay fed either in racks or cut and
mixed with the grain. Upon these
rations the sows gained 112 pounds
each during the winter season up to
farrowing time.
The gilts required liberal feeding
during the summer on pasture and
during the winter following. From
2.5 to 3 pounds of grain , generally
corn , was fed for each 100 pounds live
weight of the pigs while they were on
pasture ; that is , 10 pigs weighing
1,000 pounds received from 25 to 30
pounds of grain daily. Ten pigs
weighing 1,500 pounds received from
38 to 45 pounds daily.
Part II.
Part II deals with the cost of grow
ing pigs from weaning time , or about
50 pounds weight , to the time they
are taken from alfalfa pastures and
put into the feed lot. Seven hundred
and ninety-two pigs are included in
these tests , which cover several years'
work. In general , these pigs were fed
less than a full grain ration , most ot
them receiving two pounds to 2.5
pounds grain daily for each 100
pounds live weight. The average cost
of the grain and pasture in growing
these pigs was $3,30 per 100 pounds.
It will be seen that this cost is lower
than the cost of producing the 50-
pound pig , and it is also lower than
the cost of finishing the pig for mar
ket after he is placed in winter quar
ters. According to figures which will
be presented in a subsequent bulletin ,
the cost of feeds per 100 pounds of
gain with pigs in dry lots it $3.57 per
hundred , figured upon the same cost
for feed as that used in Bulletin 121.
This bulletin may be had free of
cost by residents of Nebraska upon
application to the Nebraska Agricul
tural Experiment Station , Lincoln.

Insurance Rates Adjusted.
Fiife insurance rates in this city
have- finally become adjusted to an
unusually equitable basis , and 25
c-enti ; per $100 for one year , 50 cents
for 'iwo years and 75 cents for five
years is the outside that one needs
to pay here at the present time. All
agents in the city have authority
from their companies to write busi
ness at these rates , the drop from
$1.95 per $100 for one year which pre
vailed at one time being due to com
petition w-hich - has been very keen.
Breathing Exercises
Ella Adelia Fletcher advises : "Close
the left nostril , and breath through
the right during eight seconds ; close
the right and exhale forcibly during
two seconds through the left ; Inhale
through the left during eight seconds ;
exhale through the right in two sec
onds. I do not ( she continues ) recom-
ment this for habitual Breathing. " It
Is highly important that the lungs
should be filled with air in these
breathing exercises , and that the
breath should be retained during the
period In which we can count , slowly ,
from 6 to 12. Then the exhalation
should he gradual say , exhale , pause ;
count two , exhale a little more ; count
two , and so on. The muscles of the
lungs will be strengthened and their
capacity greatly increased in proper-
'tion as the air is first retained and
then completely exhaled.
Critical Time for Crops in North
western States.
Short Yield Commonly Arises From
Two Causes Lack of Sufficient
Moisture and Injury Done by
Warm Winds.
The critical period for crops in the
northwestern states is not usually
when the crop is sown , nor during the
early stages of growth , but later ; that
Is , toward the period of maturing. It
Is easily posslibe to carry a crop on
that Is big with promise until it comes
near the ripening period , and when
that stage approaches , the realization
of what was promised earlier is not
attained. In some instances , it is
so far short as to amount in a sense
to failure.
The result referred to more com
monly arises from two causes , says
the Dakota Farmer. One is the lack
of sufficient moisture to carry the
crop to maturity , and the other is the
injury that may come from warm
winds that blow for successive days
and interfere with the filling of the
grain. It might seem at first thought
that the farmers are at the mercy of
the elements , and can do nothing to
prevent the injury referred to from
either of the' causes named. But such
is not the fact. It is true of course
that the farmer cannot make It rain ,
and it is also true he cannot command
the winds. Nevertheless he can do
much to ward off the injury that
would otherwise result from either
should it threaten.
The soil may be prepared for the
crop in a way that will hold the mois
ture that falls for a period sufficiently
long to bring some relief to the crops ,
should they be threatened with a
shortage , or with injury from undue
heat. The preparation called for may
be two-fold In character. It may con
sist of keeping In the moisture by sur
face cultivation , or it may mean the
stocking of the land with humus.
These may both be accomplished In
one season , but more commonly they
are resorted to in different seasons.
The stirring of the surface soil in
volves bringing the summer-fallow in
to the rotation or the growing of some
crop that calls for cultivation during
much of the period of growth. Which
of these methods is to be chosen must
be determined by the attendant con
ditions. If the soil is Infested by per
ennial weeds that are difficult of eradi
cation , the summer-fallow Is to be
chosen. The same Is true of any soil
that wants cleaning , if the farmer is
not prepared to utilize to advantage
the crops that may be thus grown.
Where he Is so prepared then the cul
tivated crop Is to be preferred to the
bare fallow.
Humus may be put Into the soil by
introducing any kind of a grass or
clover crop into the rotation. When
the sod of any of these is broken , a
large supply of humus Is put into the
soil in the form of roots and stubble
or top growth. The increased power
given to the soil by this process Is
very considerable. It is specially
helpful when hot winds come , for
there is then a reserve , as It were , of
moisture In the soil that would not
otherwise be there , and Its presence
may be able to carry the growing
through a critical period where It
would otherwise fail.
The two processes may be carried
on the same season , as for instance ,
when the land is summer-fallowed and
one or two crops are buried during
the summer-fallowing process. This
may easily be done by making one of
these winter rye and the other some
quick growing crop on top of the
burled rye.
The necessity for giving attention
to these methods Increases with the
wearing of the soil. When land is
first broken it la usually well supplied
with humus. Each grain crop taken
from It lessens the supply. The result
is , finally , that the humus supply Is
BO low that the soil is not well able to
resist the Influences of drought.
Wherever the rainfall is short In a
normal season , and wherever hot
winds are liable to prevail , close at
tention should be given to both those
methods of warding off crop failure.
Marketing Butter.
A good way to market butter when
one has no Ice , Is to pack , the rolls
in a box lined with white paper , hav
ing a tight cover. Wrap the box in
several thicknesses ef newspaper and
enclose it in a larger box. Packed
In this way butter can be taken
several miles to market In warm
weather without showing any signs
of melting.
Use of Nutrients.
Protein , fat nitrogen , free extract
and ash are termed nutrients on ac
count of their mission in building up
new and restoring old tisues. Each
of these nutrients has a certain work
to do In promoting the growth and
maintaining the animal body.
Sheep Have Few Ailments.
Some farmers raise the objection
to raising sheep on the ground that
they are subject to disease. This Is
a great mistake , because when prop
erly cared for , sheep have fewer ail
ments than any other farm animal.
Turpentine for Worms.
Turpentine is highly recommended
as a remedy to free pigs from Intes
tinal worms. The dose is one tea-
apoonful for each 80 to 100 pounds of
pit , given once a day forJ three daya
tn tuccenion , preferably In milk.
Evaporation Can Be Prevented by
Cultivation and Keeping Surface
In Fine , Loose Condition.
( By A. B. GRAHAM , Ohio State Uni
versity ) .
If every farmer were compelled to
haul and pour over each acre of his
farm over 200 barrels of water per
day , he would gain some conception
of tne amount of moisture evaporated
from an exposed , uncultivated soil , at
this season of the year. This evapor
ation varies according to the kind and
condition of the soil , weather , loca
tion , etc. , but under average condi
tions the sun and wind are rapidly
drawing from the soil that will mois
ture be needed later in the season
for crop growth. It is just like draw
ing dollars from the farmers' pockets.
Now is the time to prevent this
loss. Soil moisture is valuable. Past
records show that an inch of rainfall
in July means $6,000,000 worth of
corn to the state of Ohio. While
farmers cannot make an inch of rain
fall in July , they can carry an inch
of soil moisture over from May until
July , and that means the same thin * ? .
An Inch of rainfall means 113 tons
of water per acre. If this is allowed
to escape at the rate of 200 barrels
per day , it will require only four
days to lose the entire inch. Every
farmer who falls to prevent this
evaporation is losing his share of that
$5,000,000. Are you one of the losers ?
How can this evaporation be pre
sented ? By cultivating the soil. Keep
the surface of the soil in a fine , loose
condition. Follow the plow with the
harrow. Harrow the cornfield before
the corn Is up ; after it is up , culti
vate often enough to keep a good soil
mulch. Don't be stingy with the use
of the cultivator.
The amount of moisture In the soil
this spring Is below normal. Mois
ture is essential to maximum crop
Conserve your soil moisture. Do It
Helping Out Scant Moisture.
The best safeguard against drouth ,
at this time or later on , is to keep the
cultivator or harrow going. By thus
stirring the surface soil the capillary
tubes are broken , a mulch is formed
the depth the cultivator goes , and thus
the moisture in the soil below is pre
vented from evaporating. It is amaz
ing how much water can thus be re
tained in the soil , compared to ground
not so treated. It is important to fol
low this practice at once to conserve
the present supplies of soil moisture.
Moisture during the growing period
of May and June is even more impor
tant than during July and August.
Crops well started can withstand a
later drouth , whereas plants with a
feeble start have a poor show against
the dry time in midsummer.
Save Soil Moisture.
Remember that this may be a very
dry year , consequently save all the
soil moisture you can. As soon as
the plowed land is fit give it a good
harrowing. Double disk the corn
ground and harrow it afterward.
Should heavy rains come in early
spring harrow after these rains as
soon as the soil is fit.
The Berry Crops.
Keep the fruit of strawberries cool
until the time to use or market them.
Never pick berries for market when
they are wet.
Beware of red rust in blackberry or
blackcap bushes. When seen , prompt
ly dig up and burn the Infected plant ,
being careful not to scatter the fun
gous dust over healthy bushes.
Remedy for Scours.
The following remedy Is suggested
by a Canadian swine breeder for
scours in young pigs : Take half a
gallon of oats and boil for an hour
and a hah . Allow to cool , and feed
to the sow , giving nothing else for
twenty-four hours.
Telling Fertile Egg.
There is only one way of telling a
fertile egg and that is by incubating
it for at least four days , and then
testing it with a good egg tester.
Look for the ewes that show good
The sow cannot produce something
out of nothing.
No animal on the farm will try
harder to keep clean than the hog.
Hogs greatly relish mixtures of
charcoal , wood ashes , salt and the
If a horse must be kept in the barn
In hot weather keep all the windows
The importance of plenty of shade
during the hot days of summer can-
oot be overestimated.
Pens and pastures through which
the drainage from swine inclosures
tiigher up runs should not be used.
Old hog wallows are frequently
breeding holes for cholera , hence they
should be filled and clean places made
[ or them.
Reduction of feed so that the sows
show loss of flesh has a marked effect
Df the litters and is the cause of
heavy losses.
A good pair of draft mares will per
form more work on the farm than a
light team and at the same time grow
i good pair of colts.
Where many horses are kept In a
barn it Is well to whitewash the in
terior of the stables frequently to kill

The Man Who Sued the Widow.
A St. Louis man is suing a widow
for $100,000 for refusing to marry *
him. He must be one of those iron-
gray whiskered men who want to sit
on the front porch of a house that
was built with money earned by an
other man. Houston Post
"Some time ago I was taken wltli
eczema from the top of my head to
my waist. It began with scales on my ;
body. I suffered untold itching and
burning , and could not sleep. I was
greatly disfigured with scales and
crusts. My ears looked as If they had
been most cut off with a razor , and
my neck was perfectly raw. I suffered
untold agony and pain. I tried two
doctors who said I had eczema In its
fullest stage , and that It could not
be cured. I then tried other rem
edies to no avail. At last , I tried a set
of the genuine Cuticura Remedies ,
which cured me of eczema when all
else had failed , therefore I cannot
praise them too highly.
"I suffered with eczema about ten
months , but am now entirely cured ,
and I believe Cuticura Remedies are
the best skin cure there Is. " ( Signed )

"I had suffered from eczema about
four years when boils began to break
out on different parts of my body. It
started with a fine red rash. My
back was affected first , when It also
spread over my face. The itching was
almost unbearable at times. I tried
different soaps and salves , but nothing
seemed to help me until I began to
use the Cuticura Soap and Ointment.
One box of them cured me entirely. I
recommended them to my sister for
her baby who was troubled with tooth
eczema , and they completely cured her
baby. " ( Signed ) Mrs. F. L. Marber-
ger , Drehersville , Pa. , Sept. G , 1910.
