NOT AS BAD
Who says thirteen is an unlucky num
ber? The public debt statement shows a
decrease of $13,000,000 during the month
of June.-Indianapolis News.
resources, our undeveloped assets; but,
great and rich as they undoubtedly are,
there is one important rock in the foun
dation that really should be the corner
stone, but which today is practically in
the waste-heap our former wheat lands
in the Sacramento and San Joaquin val
leys. There are thousands and thous
ands of acres practically unproductive;
some of the great ranches do not even
make enough to pay the taxes. It is a
Ldismal fact, but it is the truth. And if
we expect to build up a great common
wealth out here, we must bring all that
land into bearing, and thus have a broad,
well-laid groundwork on which to build.
Specialties due to our unique climate are
very well so far as they go, but the plain,
cold fact must not be overlooked that, if
we are ever going to amount to anything,
our output must be of common, standard,
every-day goods. Producing an article
is only a small part of the successful
business selling it, getting it into whole
sale consumption, is the hardest work.
Did the California wheat grower in his
bonanza days, or even today, ever form a
co-operative association so he could sell
his product and not have an annual
carry-over, like the Santa Clara prune
men? Great as every one of our special
agricultural industries is, the fact re
mains that we have usually overdone it.
The prune men, the San Joaquin raisen
men, the walnut men, the orange men
all have associations under one name or
another to facilitate marketing their
crops, they say, but, as a matter of fact,
isn't it an indirect admission that pro
ductive facilities were so rich and easily
handled that the output grew faster than
the demand? But as they are all entic
ing industries, pleasing to figure on, but
hard to realize on, the over-production
kept up, and today, considering the state
as a whole, is it not the unwholesome
truth that the plain farm products are
pushed aside, and the main effort given
to fancy lines, as it were?
The conclusion of a long article in the
same strain is that there may be nothing
romantic in raising hogs, but that after
all the great future wealth of California
must come not from the many side lines
that have heretofore attracted so much
attention, but from the live stock indus
try and the sugar beet. The Nebraska
farmer who believes it would be fine to
go to the coast and raise prunes, walnuts
or oranges may be convinced from this
statement that he can make more money
on his farm here in raising corn, hogs,
cattle and wheat than he could in the
most romantic occupation on the Pacific
coast. Lincoln Journal.
A Catauihunte Writes ef Hit Wart
Some notes taken by E. H. Jenkins on
his recent western trip:
On our return from Portland we left
the Union depot the evening of May 23d
at 850. The train's number was 6, and
upon inquiry I found that although
traveling east over four different sys
tems, kept the number as far east as
Chicago, and in fact the same sleeper
which we occupied from Portland to our
destination went east to New York City.
While our visit was far from being over,
and we had planned several side trips
from our headquarters, still we were very
fortunate in having a good clear even
ing, something unusual for Oregon and
the Columbia river country also a
beautiful full moon, by which we were
enabled to get many clear views of the
river, up which we -were traveling, also
of many high mountains of the Cascade
range. All or nearly all tourists who
visit in the vicinity of Portland make the
trip by boat up the Columbia as far as
the rapids, through the mountains and
some going still further by way of the
locks, and all report the trip as well
worth taking, as the views are splendid
and interesting through each mile
To give Journal readers some idea of
the ruggednesB of the Cascade moun
tains through which the grand Columbia
wends its way, I will give the names of
some or tne nign peaks and compare
them with other mountains better
known. There are many high peaks in1
this range that are covered the summer
through with deep snow. Among the
highest are the Mts. Pitt, Wood, Jeffer
son, Baker, Hood, and Ranier. The last
mentioned peak has an elevation above
aea level of 14,444 feet, nearly three miles
high, or the same distance as it is from
Sixth street in our city to Will Ernst's
house north of town. Pike's Peak
in Colorado is several hundred feet
lower and looks much more so on account
of the elevation of the land near the
base aa the land at Denver has an eleva
tion of 580 feet
Oar first stop at a city of much im
portance was The Dalles, a place almost
the exact size of Columbus or having a
population of 3542. It is a town full of
enterpriee and has important lumber
industries and is growing fast; at about
the time we passed through the above
named place we found we could keep
awake no longer and upon awakening
the aext morning found ourselves at
Pendleton. Soon after we reached
Meacham where we were allowed thirty
minutes for breakfast, and let me adviae
all Journal readers who pass over the
8hort Line to not miss taking a meal at
the Log Cabin eating house as the hospi
tality is well worth the money. At
breakfast table we could look out of the
window and ase snow banks here and
there. This place hi at the head waters
of the Umatilla river and in the Blue
On our way east our next point of
much size is Baker City, with 7,000 in
habitants; it is quite a shipping place,
many cattle and sheep grazing in the
valleys in this neighborhood.
On the first day out from starting we
arrived at Huntington for a rather late
dinner aad expected to aes a large town

place, in fact mostly railroad nmnosi

aad but little water for that purpose.
J Attar sUrtiag east from
we crossed the Snake river into Idaho.
It is a deceiving stream as it is slow run
ning among the monntaina and I was
told by a party who had run a ferry boat
on the stream that in many places it waa
from GO to 75 feet deep. It certainly
carries a great volume of water for it
drains a large territory. In many places
in Idaho the Snake valley is under a
high state of cultivation, being syste
matically irrigated, and all land ao im
proved is held at a high figure. In this
valley I saw alfalfa as fine, I think, aa
any Nebraska can produce which is say
ing a great deal; besides, this section
grows many kinds of fruit, small grain
and stock of all kinds thrive welL
We reached Pocatello aome time in the
night so did not see much of the city,
but on looking up the place we find they
have more people than Columbus, and
was told on the train that times are very
good there at present. They have large
railroad shops that employ many men,
while there are many coal and 'other
mines not far distant.
Our second dsy found us nearing
Granger, Wyoming, and excepting for
the coal industry we failed to aee where
a poor human could exist, unless one
could live on sage brush nothing else
visible only now and then a gang of Japs
working on railroad track. Yet one does
not see all of a state by any means in
going through on a line of road, and
many thousand acres of Wyoming land
in the valleys grow rich grass which the
people of the state are turning into
money through feeding it to their cattle
In the early morning of the third day,
when I was trying to get the worth of
my money out of the sleeping car com
pany at the rate of two dollars fifty per
night, I was poked in the ribs by my
traveling oompanion, wakened, and
asked what was the matter? The reply
came "Lookout the window." When I
complied the sentence was finished
"This is Nebraska, and it is good enough
8mm Km tuck.
The following is taken from a recent
copy of the Nebraska Farmer:
A representative of the Nebraska Far
mer called upon Mr. C K. Davies, the
Columbus Shorthorn man, last week,
and found him busily engaged taking
care of the live stock on his farm, of
which he has Shorthorns, Duroo-Jersey
hogs and prize Buff Cochin chickens.
At the head of Mr. Daviea' herd of Short
horns is Fame's Heir 150963 by Golden
Fame 144750 and but of imp. Milkmaid
by Star of Lancaster (69663). Golden
Fame, the sire of this young bull, waa
purchased by Mr. Donahey, the well
known Iowa Shorthorn breeder, from W.
D. Flatt of Ontario, Canada, at a public
sale at Chicago for $1,550. Milkmaid,
the dam of Fame's Heir, belongs to the
Heatherwick Rosebuds and won second
prize at the Marr Agricultural Associa
tion in 1898. Fame'a Heir is one of those
low down, blocky bulls with a splendid
top and bottom line, possessing good
strong bone and an excellent head and
neck. He stands firmly on four good
legs, is an excellent individual and has
every right to prove himself a good
breeding bull. The crop of calves now
coming are by him and while very
young, show indications that he made
no mistake in selecting him for the
head of his herd. All the cows on the
place are bred to Fame'a Heir or have
calves at their side by him. Mr. Davies
has a few good breeding cows that he
prizes very highly, and there are a
goodly number of heifers on the place
that will mature into good breeders.
Phillis of Riverside 4th by Victoria
Prince 2d and out of Phillis of Clover
Hill 2d by the great Canute 106716. is a
calf that shows every promise of devel
oping into a good Shorthorn cow. She
is the possessor of a good back with a
nice head and neck and with quarters
that are decidedly good. He expects to
breed her to Fame'a Heir when she is
sufficiently matured, and she should
produce an excellent calf. There are
about ten head of cows on the place that
have calves at foot or are bred to his
herd bull that he might be induced to
Eart with for some well bred Shorthorn
nils. He is able to dispose of a goodly
number of bulla, and aome man who
wants some females can get them here.
He has only one bull now for sale, and
he is out of , imp. King Gloster and is
about eight months old. He is a nice
calf, having a good head and back and
would make a very useful bull for some
enterprising farmer. He also has a
couple of Polled Durham cows that he
would part with, aa he intends to devote
his efforts towards breeding the Short
horns. We found him with about 30
spring pigs, among which are some very
good ones, and his chickens are well bred
and good specimens of the breed. Any
one wanting a young bull or aome cows
already bred might do well to write Mr.
Davies and mention the Nebraska
Review of the weather near Genoa for
the month of Jane, 1902.

whom the last dispensation of heat or
cold, wet or dry, is alwaya the most die
comforting of any experience to which
they have been subjected, and for this

make copious extracts from my notes to
how that oar present discomforts are
