The first of the week John Nagengast
got ia a ear of ahoets from Holt county
that he will sell to our farmers. The corn
crop is short in that section and many
oars of hogs are being shipped toother
parts of the state where feed is plenti

was held from St. John's church last
Saturday Burning, services being con
ducted by Bev. Zak. There were a
large number out to pay their last re

Hog cholera or a disease equally as
destructive to swine is making sad havoc
ins number of herds in the ooaatry
southwest of town, aad ass result many
farmers will be rushing their hogs to
market. Neil Davis, A. F. Lane, Frank
Tilmaa and several of their' neighbors
report the loss of a considerable number.
For some years this section of the country
has been comparatively free from the
ravages of cholera, and its appearance
at this time has a depressing effect upon
the owners of large herds. The pros
petit of losing $5 bogs is not very en
couraging. It is to be hoped that every
precaution will be taken to prevent the
spread of the dread disssse. The car
casses of all animals dying with it should
be burned and the yards where they
were kept plowed sad well sprinkled
with Km. It is always well to remem
ber that an ounce of prevention is worth
a pound of cure.

This has been another busy week for
the farmers in their cornfields.- Nearly

they find quite a percent of stalks with
no ears on them.
