the Important crops In the
AiONO of the control west ,
northwest and I'aclflc coast
are barley and hops , both of
which require considerable care In
cultivation. The chief market for the
'better grades of barley Is the mulling
industry , which supplies principally
the brewing and distilling traded. The
principal and almost exclusive market
for hops Is the brewing Industry.
For a number of years American
nnd European scientists have devoted
much Inquiry to these crops for the
purpose of deciding upon which prop
erties are conditioned their value to
the consumer.
With regard to barley , there la con-
aldcrnblo difference of opinion , the
views of American and Europaan In-

Departments of Agriculture Study
Darley and Hops.
The Agronomists and chemists of the
Stnto Agricultural colleges and several
specialists of the United States de
partment of agriculture have dovotcd
a great deal of time to the study of
barley nnd hops nnd their Improve
ment. They have been advising the
farmers to devote attention to the pro
duction of these properties m these
ropa which are most desired by the
consumer. In this work , however ,
they have met with considerable dim-
culty from the fact that they hnvo
teen nimble to state positively what
these properties are that the consumer

the Individual judgment of the buyer ,
based upon personal experience , has

; Individual judgment Is often biased

Improvement of Barley and Hops.
A movement is under way to bring
about Improvement In the growing of
barley and hops nnd to lay down cer
tain standards by which they can bo
valued regardless of Uic personal equa
At the present stage this movement
Is crystallizing In nn international bar
ley nnd hop exhibit , which will take
place Oct 12 to 22 , 1011 , at Chicago ,
In connection with the American Ex
position of Brewing Machinery , Ma
terials and Products. For this exhibit
there will bo available a prlzo fund
of over ? 8,000 , which will bo appor
tioned to the different varieties and
strains of the crops with a view of giv
ing the greatest possible encourage
ment to the farmers who raise them.
The growers who may wish to par
ticipate In the exhibit should addrcs3

Cleaning Barley For Seed.
One of the principal difficulties that
have obtained In the growing of barley
as well as other crops Is that sufil-
ctcnt attention has not been paid to
the seed , not only In the matter of
fanning out all dead and degenerate
berries , so as to seed only good nnd
llvo grain nnd produce n good crop
where no grains will fall to sprout ,
but also because there has been n lack
of uniformity as to variety or strain.
This Is perhaps of moro than ordinary
Importance In the case of barley and
Is ouo of the matters that will engage
the attention of the "barley nnd hop ex
hibition nt Chicago In October , 10'1.
The barley which Is used for malting
purposes Is put through nn artificial
process of sprouting In mass , In which'
necessarily nil grains ore treated alike ;
It stands to reason , however , that
where plump nnd thin grains , mellow
and llluty ones , starchy and albuminous
grains nro nil steeped and sprouted
under like conditions they will neces
sarily grow differently and cannot yield
a uniform inajt. This causes serious
troubles to the consumer when ho
works up the malt In the further proc-
cssos of manufacture and makea It
difficult for him to finish off a uniform
product It stand ? to reason that
where the different kinds of-gralns are
nil seeded In the same soil in like manner -
nor nt the same season nnd grow under
Iho same weather conditions the ber
ries ol different characters cannot pos
sibly develop alike. The result will bean
an uneven stand , differences In the
time of maturing , different action lu
( he slack , etc.
Pedigree Gram.
Different strains of barley will grow
dllToionlly on different soils nud in
different climates.
In order to produce the best crops
hlch "will also bo the most abundant
It Is therefore necessary to use pure
strains , or , us the sclcntlsta call them ,
"pedigree" grain , where nil the berries
are of the same variety or strain nnd
will behave alike under similar condi
tions. It Is also necessary to find by
experiment what particular strain Is
best suited to certain soils and ell- AND STEM OV MANCHURIA UAltLBY.
mates nnd also what method of plant
ing nnd cultivation Is best adapted to
the varieties and types.
A great deal of work has been done
along these lines by scientific Investi
gators , particularly at the agricultural
experiment stations of Wisconsin nnd
Minnesota. These scientific men nro

Norfolk 18 , Bloomlleld 4.
Freeman , Bloomfleld's pitcher , let
Norfolk turn Sunday afternoon's
game into a slugging match and out
side of a batting practice for the
local team , there was very little In-
tcrest for the fans , who became some
what excited over some unpopular de
cisions handed down by "Babe" Wat
ers , Hloomfleld's umpire , and also
these of Umpire Scott of this city.
GliBsman made the feature plays of
the day , landing two long flies which
ho put in his basket after two spec
tacular runs. Besides this feature
playing , Gllssiuan padded up his bat
ting average considerably.
Every member of the Norfolk team
with the exception of Miller and
Leahy got a hit. Miller got a sacrl
lice. Leahy of Wayne pitched for
Norfolk and struck out thirteen men
and did not allow a base on balls.
Jones , Wayne's third baseman , played
with Norfolk but he was given no
chance to show off his good third
base qualities , so he made good at bat
ting. Left Field Brandte for Bloomfield -
field made several feature catches.
The double from Dudgeon to Krahn
to Miller was another feature.
Wausa plays here this afternoon.
Traveling with the Bloomfleld team
are a number of athletes , Including

Wheat Yield 58 Bushels an Acre.
Fremont , Tribune : Stephens and
Lamley have broken the wheat record
so far this year by producing on Dan
V. Stephens' tiled farm fifty-eight
bushels of wheat to the acre. * This
remarkable yield reported yesterday
by Roy Laraley , who grew the wheat ,
was produced from ten bushels of pure
bred turkey red seed developed by the
Hon. George Coupland of Elgin , Neb.
This seed was sown along one side of
a forty-acre field of wheat seeded with
ordinary turkey red wheat. The remarkable -
markablo feature of this most remark
able yield was the fact that the re
mainder of the forty yielded an av
erage of a little less than forty-one
bushels an acre , thus showing an in-
ciease In yield wheio the pure bred
seed was used of about eighteen bush
els to the acre.
Shift Army Officers.

Ralph Hoyt will succeed MaJ. den.
W. II. Carter , In command of the ma
neuver brigade In Texas , when the
latter Is relieved August 15. Gen. Car
ter will como to Washington to resume -
sumo his duties as assistant chief of
staff , relieving Gen. Arthur Murray ,
who will take command of the de
partment of the west with headquar
ters at San Francisco. The largo re
duction in the number of troops in
Texas has caused the abandonment of
the original plan to rotate the various
major generals in tours of duty there.
Bryan to Be for Wilson ?
Omaha , July 31. That W. J. Bryan
will soon be openly committed to the
candidacy of Gov. Woodrow Wilson of
New Jersey for president , nnd that ho
will carry Nebraska's delegation to
the national convention for him , is the
confident prediction of men who un
derstand the Inward workings of the
Nebraska democracy.
Mayor Dahlmnn's open espousal of
Judaon Harmon's cause , It is declared ,
will force Mr. Bryan into the open for
Wilson. Nebraska votes for its presi
dential choice in a primary , and , In
order to defeat the Harmon machina
tions of the Dnhlmanites , It Is easy to
see that Mr. Bryan will have to espouse -
pouso the cause of some particular
Gov. Wilson Is the ultimate choice
ot practically all of Mr. Bryan's friends
In Nebraska. They think ho Is the
man to beat Harmon with , nnd they
believe that the peerless leader will
ultimately line up for him. Champ
Clark is an easy second choice , but ho
is not looked upon as a particularly
strong candidate.
Bryan Prefers Folk.
A man who ought to know says that
Mr. Bryan's real choice for the presi
dential nomination is ex-Gov. Joseph
W. Folk of Missouri. This man also
says , however , that Mr. Bryan , In
common with nearly everybody else ,
understands that Mr. Folk Is not a
serious possibility.
Mr. Bryan has not crossed Champ
Clark's name off his list of eligibles ,
but it is no secret that he was nettled
by Clark's espousal of Chairman Un
derwood's cause In the controversy
the latter had with Mr. Bryan over
free wool. The commoner , It Is de
clared , no longer looks with any great
degree of enthusiasm on the Clark
Much Wilson Sentiment.
The amount of Wilson sentiment
among Nebraska democrats is surpris
ing. Men Immediately close to Mr.
Bryan , of course , are not committing
themselves , but the rank and file of
the Bryan faction make little secret of
their support of the New Jersey gov
ernor. They say that as between Wll
son and Harmon in the Nebraska pri
maries it will be a tidal wave for
Wilson. Three to one is a moderate
estimate of their claims. All they are
Interested in is in seeing that the anti
Harmon strength Is concentrated on
Wilson and not scattered.
This feeling is not confined to en
thusiastic Bryan followers. M. F. Har
rington , the astute and affable gentle
man from O'Neil who presided over
the Fremont convention Tuesday , is
not a 33rd degree Bryanite. He Is un
der considerable suspicion of hostility
to Mr. Bryan , but he is openly for Wil
son for president.
Ex-Gov. Ashton C. Shallenberger ,
candidate for the United States senate -
ate , and a man who plays politics even
in his sleep , while not committing hlnv
self , Is known to lean decidedly to
ward Wilson. Shallenberger wants to
carry Nebraska for the democratic
party next year , and he thinks that
the nomination of Wilson would bo a
long step in that direction.
No More Cholera.
New York , July 31 , Further en
couragement to the belief 'that the
danger of en invasion of cholera is

U. C. T. Picnic Is Best Ever.
Pleasure seeking traveling men anc
their families found the long looked
for pleasure spot Saturday on the
grounds of the Norfolk Country club
where the fourth annual picnic of the
Norfolk council , No. 120 , U. C. T. , was
held. The committee , consisting o
Chairman George H. Spear , E. E
Miller , John F. Dunhaver , H. C. Old
field , and S. A. Ersklne with Fred Get
tlnger assisting as starter of racing
events , are today being heartily con
gratulated on bringing to a culmlna-
tlon late Saturday evening the best
traveling men's picnic ever held here.
Over $400 worth of prizes were glv-
en away to winners of the various
twenty-one events , most of the prizes
being useful and valuable ones.
Starting early Saturday morning ,
automobiles and gasoline launches
brought scores of traveling men and
their families to the club grounds and
as soon as enough were brought to
gether the day's events began. There
was "something doing" all the time
and the entertainment committee had
it's hands full. Little tots were taken
care of and even the oldest traveler on
the grounds had a part to play. Mar
ried women were overcome In a tug-
of-war contest by the single ladles and
fat men raced In such earnestness
that they gave much amusement to
the many onlookers. Little tots scram
bled In sand piles in which pennies
were hurled , and , when' tired of play ,
the refreshment stand was visited ,
where n gentleman In white served
ices , cold drinks and other refresh-
ments. The refreshment stand and
playgrounds were frequently deserted
for a little recreation on swings and
hammocks In the shady nooks of the
grounds , and even these quiet places
were cast away for more secluded
spots along the rlvor , for which row
) oats nnd launches were nppropilatod.
'or faster riding automobile spins
vero enjoyed. Coming back from a
short rest , the travelers again min
ted In athletic contests and ran po >
ate races , sack races , etc. , while the
adlcs followed their example by try-
ng for prizes in the ball throwing
contests , wheelbarrow contests , noodle
.brooding and the nail driving contest.
The golf contest was of interest.
Jthors left the contest grounds for the
mil diamond , where a fast game was
) layed between the Elks nnd the trav
elers ending In a score of 10 to 12 In
ho Elks' favor. The first and only
iccldcnt of the day occurred nt this

ilng. Ho struck nt a ball , which
lanced from the bat and struck him

The entire morning's program was ,
given over 'to addresses and singing ,
n which many of the travelers and ,
.heir ladles proved to bo genuinely
alented. |
C. L. Chaffee's address of welcome
vas heartily applauded and the ladles't
quartet of the U. C. T. sang several
selections immediately after Mr. Chat-
fee welcomed the travelers to the
rounds. Miss Shirley Englo gave n
recitation and was followed by an ad-
Iress by Frank II. Beels. After a so-
ectlon by Mrs. and Ruth Beebe , Mrs.
S. F. Ersklne pleased the audience , '
with an original poem of interest to/
travelers. Miss Carrlo Thompson's | [ I
piano solo was greatly appreciated
and a few minutes' talk by Frank Con- ,
icily jollied the auditors. I I
Dewltt Dunhaver gave a piano solo
and was followed by a duet by Mr.
and Mrs. J. E. Ersklne. A. W. Hawkins -
kins addressed the audience briefly
and as umpire of the ball game de
clared ho was always for "a square
deal. " The piano and violin duet by
Mr. and Mrs. Lou T. Smith was heartily -
tily applauded and the musical pro
gram was ended with a whistling song
by Miss Leona Scott.
A short recess for luncheon was an
nounced and after this the contests
were on in earnest.

ing at the hospital of Dr. A. F. Con-
ery , after an Illness that did not ex
ceed [ seven hours. She complained
during the forenoon of being unable to
j ;
see out of ono of her eyes , and also
that t her hearing was slightly defected - '
ed , which Indicated that possibly
death may hnve been duo to hemor
rhage of the brain. About 3 o'clock
In ( the afternoon she became uncon
scious nnd died about C:30. :
Dr. Conery and Dr. Chnmberlln beIng - .
Ing unabln to state the direct cause
'of death , It was decided to hold nn
autopsy. This was held by County
Coroner W. F. Con well and Dr. R. W.
Chnmberlln of this city nnd Dr. Hall
of Clearwater. Owing to the nervous
disposition of the woman nnd the
heart stimulants given , it was the con
clusion ' that death may hnvo been
caused by over-medication.
The deceased was employed as
nurse in Gray Gables' hospital last
winter and was considered very pro-
flcicnt. ' She was at one time head
nurse for Dr. Allison of Omaha.
The mother of Mrs. Osborn arrived

Strikes Head When He Dives.
Wisner , Neb. , July 31. Special to
The News : Wesley Wells , 21-year-old
son of J. A. Wells , living northwest of
town , dived into three feet of water
in the Elkhorn river near here yester-
day afternoon , striking hard on his
head. His skull and back are injured
and his condition this morning was'
considered serious
Young Wells , who weighs about 190
pounds , did not realize how shallow
the river was at this point. Just as
he was about to leap , companions
s'houted to him not to jump , but it was
too late.
The young man was Immediately
taken home. Enrouto home , running
his hand through his hair , he drew out
great wads of hair , indicating that his'
scalp was badly hurt.
