Fifty years ago n person who dared to forecast that the day would como when Nebraska would not only produce - duce n largo portion of the agricultural crops of the United States , but would likewise become n homo for the culti vation of totally now varieties of flow ers long cultivated In the cast nnd In Europe , would have been laughed out of court. Yet today Nebraska north Nohras- ca claims ono of the half dozen orlg- nntlng peony farms In the United A VIEW OF THE WEST POINT PEONY FARM. Stales. It Is a farm of flowers and lowers alone. Acres nnd acres of It re given over to the breeding nnd cul- Ivntlon of the peony In its countless rofuslon ( Of kinds. Peony Farm Near West Point. Probably comparatively few Nebras- cans are aware that for a quarter con- ury this exclusive peony farm has > eon developing In Cutnlng county liree miles southeast of the city of Vest Point. Yet for almost that many yen'rs J. F. Rosonlleld , one of the half dozen renters of new kinds of peonies in his country , has been working out his SCENE ON ROSENFIELD PEONY FARM. deal and building up a unique instltu- Ion upon the prairies of the once Jreat American desert. And today this peony farm is worth trip to look at. It is as novel as the arden of the Gods , as interesting as a circus and withal as beautiful a spec- acle as one could wish to see. The big farm of flowers presents a picture hat defies reproduction in painting or description In words , and the per- time of the thousands and thousands of pretty peonies , as they contentedly 1ft and nod their proud heads on a day In June , is a Joy not soon to be 'orgotten. Began As Market Gardener. About twenty-five years ago J. F. Rosenfield , a Swede , came to Cumlng county to locate. He farmed for a year or so , but wasn't Just sure he liked 'arming. Ho knew he loved flowers. Bye and bye he turned his attention to the cultivation fet vegetables and market gardening , raising cauliflower and lettuce and asparagus and the like. He sold his products in West Point and surrounding territory. Then he planted a few peonies. And that was the start of the unique peony plantation that graces Cumlng county today. Rapidly the peonies crowded out the vegetables , nnd today there are ton solid acres devoted exclusively to pe onies. They stretch out In n long , wide mnt of white and red and other bright col ors against a background of dark green. The balance of the farm Is rented out. 150,000 Plants On Farm. All In all , Mr. Rosonfleld estimates the number of his plants at 160,000. The commercializing of the peonies Is done In a wholesale and nation-wide way. Indeed , many of the West Point bulbs are shipped each year even to Canada. Each spring In time for Memorial day thousands of the big , fragrant flowers are shipped to Chicago , where they are retailed by a brother of the Nebrsaka peony man a florist In Chi cago. One year Mr. Rosenfield snipped 16- 000 flowers to Chicago. Mr. Rosenfleld has attained wide fame throughout the United States among florists and those interested In flower culture , by the striking new pe ony creations that ho has produced. Probably the most beautiful of these is a mammoth double peony of rich crimson color. This ho named the "Carl Rosenfleld" peony , giving It the name of one of his sons. A few years ago he bad a single bulb of this product , but by constant culti vation he now has several rows ol them. This Variety $5 a Bulb. ' This rare peony sells at wholesale at $5 per bulb. Recently a Massachu setts man ordered twenty of them and sent $100 for the twenty bulbs. Franco is the greatest homo of pe ony cultivation , nnd Mr. Rosonfiold has succeeded In outdoing oven the French In many varieties. Each year the Roscnflold peony farm contributes large quantities of peonies to the big flower shows of Chicago and , occasionally , other cities. The Rosenflold homo , nestling close to n big grove of trees that break the north winds of winter , Is Ideal In every way. The dwelling is modern and beautifully finished. And throughout the home on every available stand nnd In every available vase In the hall and In the parlor and In the living room , nro peonies and peonies and peonies fresh plucked from the limit less supply at the front door. Throughout the homo stand musical Instruments of one * type and another , indicating clearly the artistic tempera ments that fill the homo of this great peony artist. Peonies Are Little Cure. When Mr. Rosonheld operated a mar ket garden farm , ho had waterworks piped from a big windmill. Today waterworks nro unnecessary. The roots of the peony go so deep into the ground that , even In dryest weather , .hey never run out of moisture. The peonies are little care , Mr. Ros enfleld says. They take care of them selves In the severest winters. The lollage falls down In such a way as : o perfectly protect the bulbs and In the springtime the growth begins anew. Each year's cultivation adds to the size of the big double flowers , until some of them become monsters. Remarkable Surgical Case. Brown County Democrat : Mrs. Chris. Eddy and son , Clifton , were ar rivals from Omaha Wednesday even ing , where the young man has been under the care of a physician for the past several veeks. When taken to Omaha he was suffering from a wound In his head resulting from1 a kick by a horse. Paralysis and other complica tions followed , but the many friends of the family will be pleased to know that he returns home in possession of his faculties , with the single exception of his speech , and It is believed that it will only be a matter of time until he is in possession of that , also. His case is considered one of the most remarkable to have come under the observation of western surgeons In years. Banks Consolidate. Colome Times : The Bl-Metallic bank and the Trlpp County State bank have bought out the Bank of Colome , and that institution is no longer In business here. The ofllce fixtures were used to replace those of the Tripp County bank and add much to its ap- peafcmce. Tllden Board of Education. Tilden , Nob. , June 30. Special to The News : Tom McDonald and C.
