DAYS OF CALAMITY IN NEDRA8KA
STIRRING DAYS FOR PIONEERS
In the Late 70s the Grasshopper
Plague Devastated Every Kind of
Growing Vegetation but Grass Stiff
Stories but True.
"I was gazing out of the car window
on the way to DCS Molncs yesterday , "
said J. W. Garrcll of David City , Nob. ,
to the Sioux City Tribune , "and as I
watched the grain being cut , I was
f * reminded of the harvest In the late
fy ' 70s , during the grasshopper plague
ty which swept over Nebraska nnd north
ern Kansas , leaving bare fields.
"I have often heard men scoff at
statements made by some of the early
Bottlers about the clouds of grasshop
pers that completely obscured every
thing from sight , but I can tell you
that It is an absolute fact that the sun
was obscured from our sight for a
long time ono day on account of the
clouds of grasshoppers.
, "I couldn't have been over 10 years
of age when the grasshopper plague
struck Nebraska , but so unusual an
event was It In my life that I can re
member It as If It wcro yesterday. My
father had but recently settled In Ne
braska , and at that tlmo the state was
not settled as It Is now. People were
for the most part poor , and had only
their household effects , their teams ,
and their crops , which , If destroyed ,
would mean that hard times would
"Tho season , " as I remember It , had
been propitious , and the farmers had
put out good crops , which had been
matured by plentiful rains , and ripen
ed under the Influence of a hot No-
hraska sun. Everything gave promise
of a bumper crop , nnd the farmers
were feeling good.
"Along about the time of harvest ,
the farmers In our section began to
hear of a plague of grasshoppers far
ther east which sweep everything be
fore It as clean as If It had been cut
down by a sickle. Naturally It was
ft fioiiroo of worry , but many of the
farmers believed they would have am
pie tlmo-to harvest their crops before
the Invasion , which Was not looked
, upon as especially dangerous , arrived.
j. "My father , however , had previously
, hoard of plagues of this kind , and did
not propose to bo caught napping. He
had a good field of corn , which was of
course not ripe , and ho could do noth
Ing to save that , BO ho was compelled
to leave It to the tender mercies of
"Besides the cornhe had a good field
of oats , which had come out heavy
and stood yellow with the harvest
, Our wheat , too , was well headed out
nnd was all ready , tall and ripe for the
; . ( "Father determined to save that
wheat and oats crop at any cost. He
hired all the binders he could , for
grain In these days was bound by
hand , and determined to work night
and day In order to get the wheat In
the shock before the plague struck
which was expected within three or
"Tho cradlers made things lively ,
and night and day , with only a few
hours' sleep , the wheat was put In
shock. As young as I was I was
recruited Into the service. Well , to
make a long story short , wo finished
the harvest , except a few acres o :
"At noon on the third day we al
went In for dinner , and I can remem
ber seeing my father shade his eye
and look toward the east to see
whether the grasshoppers were com
Ing. A little later a dark cloud coult ' ]
bo seen on the horizon , which rolled
and tumbled like a storm. My fathe
said It was the grasshoppers coming ,
and all was In a state of expectancy.
"An hour later a wall of hoppers a 8
high as you could see and as far a s
the eye could reach came rolling alonj
llko Pharoah's plague. In a llttl
while It commenced literally to rain
grasshoppers. They rattled on th
roof like hailstones , covering every -
thing with a creeping , crawling mas
of wriggling , hopping Insects. I neve
saw anything like It. The trees wer
a mass of grasshoppers , which clung
to each other and to the bark of th
trees , like bees swarming.
"Tho fields were full of grasshop
pers. The sun had long since ceasei
to shine. You couldn't walk outsld
the house without stopping on grass
J hoppers piled on each other six Inche
high. The buzz of their wings re
minded mo of the whirr of thousand .3
of wheels In a factory. Whizz , zlpp
zing , they went as they soared eve
the house and Into the fields , sweep
Ing everything before them like a n :
"I can't remember how long It las t-
ed , but I well remember the devasta
tion that was everywhere npparen
, ' . when the plague had swept onward
' -ft" There was not a tree In the countr ;
that was not entirely divested of It
foliage. Garden stuff had been mowed
down as closely to the ground as If
it had been clipped with a scythe.
"But the corn fields ! That patch
of forty acres which had been the
pride of my father , was nowhere In
In sight. When we left It a short tlmo
before , It was well tasseled out nnd
In silk. When wo saw It again , It
looked as If a flro had swept It. These
stalks that had swayed and bent be
neath the Nebraska breeze were cut
down to within six inches of 101
ground and wore entirely destroyed.
"Tho oatn nnd wheat , however , wore
saved , because they had been well put
up , and the hoppers could not get to
them. The pests did not bother the
grass either , BO there was nome feed
for the cattle and horses the coming
"After going over the promises , fa
ther found that holes had been gnawed
Into the shingles of the roof. Fork
handles had been eaten Into , and the
spokes of wagon wheels wcro gnawed
by the tooth of the insects.
"Wo wore not the only losers. Ev
ery farmer In our neighborhood had
lost practically everything ho had.
Others had not taken the porcautlons
which my father did , and consequently
suffered a greater loss. The prlco of
grain wont up that fall , like land dur
ing the Mississippi bubble , nnd what
was others' loss was our gain.
"I heard afterwards that the ono ex
press train that crossed the plains had
been compelled to wait for hours after
the visitation of these grasshoppers.
They were ground beneath the wheels
of the train , and the track became so
oily nnd slippery that It was Impos
sible to proceed. And there the train
was compelled to sit and wait the will
of the grasshoppers.
"That was a sight that I never want
to see again , although It is a rare ex
perience to bo able to relate it nowa
days. I have heard the story doubted
so much that I am getting used to it ,
but it Is on the level , and if you don't
bellovo It , ask me. "

One Dollar Saved Represents Ten Dollars
The average man does not save to
exceed ten per cent of his earnings.
Jlo must spend nine dollars in living
expenses for every dollar saved. That
being the case ho cannot be too care
ful about unnecessary expenses. Very
often a few cents properly Invested ,
llko buying seeds for his garden , will
save several dollars outlay later on.
It Is the same in buying Chamberlain's
Colic , Cholera and Diarrhoea remedy.
It costs but a few cents , and a bottle
of it In the house often saves a doc-
[ tor's bill of several dollars. For sale

Declaring the enemy of the dove of
peace to ho the stork and not the ra

chair of sociology at the University
of Nebraska , In speaking to the stu
dents of the Chicago university , snld
that race sulcldo was a matter for
"A decreased birthrate does not
mean the destruction of the race , ' ho
said. "Call It race sulcldo If wo will.
It Is a high birthrate that In danger
ous. Russia proves It. There the
blrthruto Is barbarous , yet half the
children die before they arc 5 years
old. Over 39 per cent of I ho men mar
ry under 20 years of ago and nearly
75 per cent of the women marry be
fore that ago. The result Is a vast
horde of people , Ignorant and unen
lightened , that IH constantly spread
out over other countries , seeking re
lief nnd carrying war with them. Rus
sia figuratively IB burled alive.
"There nro many causes of a decreased -
creased birthrate , all of them praise
worthy In a measure , but there Is a
limit beyond which the decrease
should not go. A decrease In the rate
denotes civilization , but If the fam
ilies of the enlightened are cut to a
certain point the enlightened will bo
overrun by the unenlightened , where
there Is no check on the birthrate.
Every family should consist of at
least four children. "

to grade up mid give n top

le.nco at Thirteenth street nnd the
tin will bo to plaeo tbo highway In

bo gravel pit west of town , offern to

lotterinent , nil the gravel that can bo
iRod to surface the road after It has
icon graded , the Idea being to make
ho work pennnnent. Thin project
ibould not bo allowed to fall under
my consideration , an It IH something
bat IR very much needed by the farm-
) rn living went of Norfolk nnd the Im
provement would bo direct benefit to
ho retail Interestn of town.
It IH probable that the county com-
nlHRlonerfl will gladly contribute the
inonoy asked of them toward fixing
bin road , because In IhlR manner they
ivlll get the work done at JiiHt half the
amount that It would otherwlHO cost
them , as It IH legally the duty of tbo
comity and not of private Individual
to keep the highways In Biich condl
( Ion that they may bo traveled over.
If thin project goes through all
right , It IB a part of the Commercial
club's plann to treat every road leadIng -
Ing Into Norfolk In the same manner.
At the present day there IH not a
good road Into town. To tbo nortl
the road IR bad nearly to Hndar , nnd
from there to Pierce It Is pretty good
driving trade to Pierce. East the rene

better an Stnnton In approached , mnk
Ing that town moro accessible to tbo

near tbo town but beyond Warnervlll
It IH pretty good Into Madison , taking
trade that way. So It will bo seer
that the Commercial club has Inaugur
ated an Important movement , nnd th
officers should bo liberally supported
by the business men of town In th
effort to mnko It easier for farmers tc
