Hos * Amspokor , county trenmiierof
Kcyn county , panned through Norfolk
last night cnruuto homo , by vvny of
Hnssett , to Sprlngvlow , lifter u visit
at tlio St. Louis fair. Mr. Amspokcr
was pleased with the exposition but
glad'to got back to Nebraska.
"During tbo past two wcoka , " Bald
tlio county official , "the crowds nt the
fair have boon very good. They Jiuvo
been fully as largo lis expected. Up
to that time , of course , thu crowds
wcru too Hinnll to allow tbo thing to
pay out and most of the concessions ,
they told me. have BOIIO Into the
hands of receivers In one way and nil-
There Is no robbery nt tlio St. Louis
fair , according to Mr. Amspoker. Prlc-
PS of rensonnble HZC ! ate chntged at
all polntx , but IH no extortion. The
fair , says Mr. Amspoker , Is spread out
BO much that It tnkeH a long time to
get over tbo ground , but It Is a great
fair for all of that.
Returning to Nebraska land , Mr.
Amspoker was Impressed with the
condition of the crops In this section
as compared wltn the toirltory
through which ho has just passed.
"In the Missouri and Kansas country -
try , " ho said , "there seems to be no
prospects for corn , whatever. . It IH
Nebraska this year that has the corn
crop , without n doubt. Wheat , too ,
down there , Is going all the way
from nothing at all to four or live
bushels to the acre. And the outs cioji
at best runs to twenty bushels.
Ilrttcr In Kc > u I'nlin.
This sort of thing was a surprise to
the man from Keya Palm. "While the
rust has done a slight damage to tbo
wheat In our territory , " said be , "still
the wheat Is solid and the yield Is
good In fact I don't see In any of
that country a crop outlook to com
pare with that of our county. "
Sprlngvlew Is the county seat of
that county. No railioad tuns through
It nnd the dilvo to Bassetl of twenty-
five miles affords an outlet. It Is
said that quite n. number of now sot-
tiers have ai rived this summer to
take up their homes there Keya Pa

land which was affected by the Kin-
kald law , while ] 3rown , nock and
Cherry had many hundreds of thous
ands of acies of the f i ee homesteads.
Sprlngvlew people have been talking
a little of an olectilc line that will
connect them with the Northwestein
railioad but theie seems to bo noth-
Jng definitely settled In regard to It
The Nairn * KOMI I'nlin.
The name Keya P.iha came about
curiously. It Is taken fiom the In
dian language meaning "Tuitlo river , "
"Keya" signifying "turtle" Along tin-
country , north of Sprlngvlew , Is a
river and near It stands a huge rock
resembling a mammoth turtle for all
the world. From this the Indians
christened the stream and the county
came to be called by It later.

TILDEN AND NORFOLK BALL GAME
Such n Context for Xext .Siintlny on
( lie \orfolU Diamond Will
It Is possible that Norfolk and Tll
den may meet on the baseball diamond
mend In Ibis city next Sunday. It Is
undei stood Hint the Tlldon team ,
which Is reported to be all ready for
a little athletic jaunt over this sec
tion of the state , Is desirous of a
contest with the willows In which
they may have a chance to play
against the Norfolk boys. It has
been n long , long lime since Norfolk
and Tllden mot on the baseball field ,
nnd It goes without saying Hint there
would be Inlet CHI plus In the game.
The Tlldon boys are starting , It Is
said , for a litHe ttlp which will take
In Stnnlon , Pllger , Wlsner , West
Point nnd towns along the main line
of the Northwesletn east of Norfolk.
They plan to get busy all of next
week. The record which Hint team
1ms been making nil summer long Is
enough to show Hint wherever they
do go. there will be something doing
In a baHcball way.
The lit hi teason why Tllden Is fa
mous an n baseball town , Is the fact
thai they are putting up n rattling
good article with the leather sphere.
And the second reason Is the fact that
Smith of that city Is about tbo host
baseball umpire that has ever np-
penred on a Nebraska field.

LINCOLN , Aug. 24 Chairman T. S.
Allen of the democratic Htnto com-
mlllee , Is endeavoring to concentrate
the fusion , fight on the legislature.
Recently the leading fuslonlHtH admit
ted that they had less show of gain
ing a victory In the leglslnturo than
they did for some of the other ofil-
COH Since the election of Mr. Allen
chairman of the democratic state
committee everything has been done
to counteract the Impression that the
fuslonlHts have no chance to win the
legislature. At the meeting of the
Htnto convention the fuslonlsts openly
asserted that they ought to help each
other to secure the election of W. J.
Drynn to the senate. Mr. Allen Is n
brothor-ln-lnw of Mr. Ilryan. The
first letter sent out by Mr. Allen Indi
cates that llttlo attention Is to bo paid
to the head of the fusion ticket , but
that everything possible must be done
to win the legislature.
