Coffee Finally Had to Go.
The way some persons cling to cof

them harm, is a puzzler. But it is an
easy matter to give it up for good,
when Postum Food Coffee is properly

not give up coffee as a cousin of mine

Comparative Crop Statistics.
Labor Commissioner Ryder has re
ceived the December Crop Reporter of
the department of agriculture, with
supplement containing acreage, pro
duction and value of the principal farm
crops of the United States for 1907.
tie finds occasion to make some inter
esting comparisons with the Nebraska
report issued by his bureau.
"Nebraska stands second among the
states for production of winter wheat,"
said Mr. Ryder, "being beaten by Kan
sas alone. We beat Illinois by almost
2,000,000 bushels. Kansas, with two
and a half times our acreage in winter
wheat, does not anywhere near double
us in production. Secretary Wilson's
figures gives its average production
per acre as 11.3 bushels, while Nebras
ka is credited with 19.0 per acre. Our
own report gave 18.85 as the average.
Figuring 79 cents a bushel, the de
partment, of agriculture makes the
value of the Nebraska winter wheat
$33,217,000. This bureau,' figuring at
75 cents a bushel, made the value $32,
244,753. Our acreage figures exceeil
the department total by CC.7C7 acres.
Mr. Wilson's men figure the Kansas
crop as worth 82 cents a bushel, but
this difference in favor of the Kansas
product is not justified by the reports
of quality from the markets. This
state ranks fifth for production and
value of its oats crop for 1907.
"In the realm of King Corn only Illi
nois, Iowa and Missouri take prece
dence over queenly Nebraska. We lead
Kansas by 452,000 bushels, and Texas
comes in between. Nebraska stands
sixth among the states on production
of rye, tenth for barley production and
eleventh for spring wheat. We get
tenth at the hayrack, leading Kansas
in production, but the Sunflower state
is given a boost of a dollar per ton
value over Nebraska, at $7.25, as
against $G.25. Alfalfa is not given

I Tri-State Land Company Suit.,
The Tri-State Land company an
swered the suit started before the irri
gation board by H. G. Stewart The
latter was a former member of the
Fanners' Canal company. The suit
involves the transfer of 80,000 acres
of land in Box Butte and Cheyenne
The Fanners' Canal company receiv
ed the permit from the state, and
when it went out of business trans
ferred its water rights to the Tri-State
company. Then it was that Mr. Stew
art protested against the transfer, say
ing that no such transfer could be le
gally made from the nature of the
property or right that was in question.
In the brief filed the attorneys for
the Tri-State company assert that the
forfeiture of the franchise is a matter
outside of the powers of the board,
and that no authority for the deter
mination of such questions is vested
in the board. In addition the defend
ant company states that no proper
complaint wa3 made to the board, and
that H. G. Stewart is not the proper
person to make a complaint.
The board of irrigation allows the
complainant ten days in which to file
its answer. As soon as the board of
irrigation can be convened the matters
involved will be discussed.
Democratic State Convention.
The official call for the democratic
state convention has been issued, as
The democratic state convention It
hereby called to meet at Omaha on
Thursday, March 5, at 2 o. 'clock p. m.,
for the purpose of electing a member
of the democratic national committee
for Nebraska, four delegates-at-large
and two delegates from each congres
sional district, to attend the demo
cratic national convention to e held
at Denver on July 7, 1908. The dele
gates from each congressional district
shall report the same to this state con
vention for ratification. Delegates
from the various counties to the state
convention shall be selected from each
county by a convention duly called or
by a primary election, if petitioned for
by fifty democratic voters of said
county, petition for same to be filed
with the county committee on or be
fore February 14, .1908. The basis for
representation shall be one vote for
every fifty votes or major fraction
thereof cast for the democratic elec
toral ticket in 1904.
E. C. La Flang of Lexington has

Omaha the rate is $1.
. Burlington Will Be Good.
"The Burlington has nothing what
ever to hide from the public these
days," says a Burlington man in a
position of authority. "We are going
to make friends with the people, try
to give them good service, make an
effort to perform every function that
a well regulated railroad should per
form for its patrons and .the territory
it serves. We are making no secret
rates, giving no special service to fa
vored patrons, and are trying to obey
the laws. The service given is service
for the public."
Will Accept Evidence.
Captain Allen G. Fisher of Chadron
notified Attorney General Thompson
that he would accept the evidence al
ready filed in the disbarment proceed
ings without further controversy. The
supreme court recently declined to dis
miss the suit and directed the attorney
general to prepare formal proceedings
asking for disbarment. Fisher has now
agreed to the use of the testimony for
merly compiled, and this will save sum
moning the witnesses again. The case
will be heard on February 8.
The Paramewit Question.
President W. E. Hardy is sending
out a- circular letter to business or
ganizations and commercial clabs of
the state with reference to the recent
straw vote taken among the members
of the Lincoln commercial club on
fcur live questions. The circular asks
the commercial clubs of the state to
consider only one of these., It reads
as follows: "In view of the recent
agitation for government, guarantee
of national bank deposits, the board
of directors of the Lincoln Commer
cial club took a vote of their members
on the proposition, the result being as
follows: In favor of government guar
antee of national bank deposits, 335;,
against the government guarantee of
national bank deposits, 35; not voting,
15. You will see' from this that the
'business men of Lincoln are strongly
in favor.'of such guarantee, and we be
lieve it is legitimate for the business
organizations of Nebraska to agitate
this question and if their members are
in favor of a state guarantee law, to,
express this opinion by resolutions,
and that the same be made public
There is a strong movement in Kan
sas to enact a state guarantee law, and
as Governor Sheldon is favorable to a
proposition of this kind, we believe
that Nebraska could be brought into
linevwithout much trouble.
State Replies in Express Suit.
Attorney General Thompson has
filed a reply in the supreme court to
the answer of the Adams, American,
Pacific and Wells, Fargo ft Co. cor
porations that were made defendants
in the state suit, for an injunction to
restrain them from violating the Sib
ley law. The reply denies each and
every allegation contained in para
graph five of the defendant. s answer.
For further reply to that paragraph
the state alleges that on the 27th of
April, 1907, the defendants filed with
the state railway commission a sched
ule of rates and classifications charged
for the transportation of money and
merchandise within the state of Ne
braska which were in force January 1,
1907. The state denies the alegations
of the companies that the companies
are not charging rates that differ from
the legal rates and is not attempting
to take property without due process
of law. The state still prays for the
relief asked for in its petition for an
Railroad Business Increased.
The monthly report of station agents
as compiled by Rate Clerk Powell
shows that during the month of Octo
ber the receipts for freight and ticket
sales exceeded the average for four
months, except for the sale of tickets
used within the state. The total col
lections for four months amounted to
$16,104,634.02 The total ticket sales
to $3,004,773.04. Receipts for the state
business for October were as follows:
Freight forwarded, $858,717.95; freight

Freight Movement Increases.
The movement of freight in Nebras
ka has greatly increased this month,
according to the car reports at the
state railway commission for the week
ending January 8. Freight movements
for that week, compared with those of
the previous week, show an increase
of about 30 per cent. The stock car
report shows that 784 cars were or
dered for January 8, against 573 for
January 1; 1.993 cars were on hand at
last report, against 2,288 the previous
week, and 472 cars of stock were load
ed, against 388. Grain shipments
showed a big increase, 561 cars being
loaded the last week reported, against
328 during the preceding week. Of
other merchandise, 825 cars were load
ed for the first week in January,
against 734 for the preceding week.
Seeking His Brother.
A letter has been received at the h
cal land office from Daniel Markel of
Newport, Perry county, -Pennsylvania,
who i3 seeking the address of his
brother, William Markel. The letter
says: "I desire to find my brother,
William Markel. He has a farm in
Nebraska. I don't know what county
he is in. Is his land on record in
your office? Please try to find out
what part of the state he is in. He
bought government land. If you can
get the county he lives in then I can
get the county seat and find out more
about his address.
Car Shortage Reported.
The first report of a car shortage
received in a long time arrived at the
o5S.ce of the railway commission last
week. It came from W. M. Bruce of
Bertrand, who says a shortage in
wheat cars on the Burlington is caus
ed by the use of cars for hauling ice.
Gone to Junk Pile.
The fact that the adjutant general's
office needed more room for supplies
has caused the detailed census reports
of 1885, long filed in undisturbed seclu
sion in a basement room of the capltol
building, to be carted away to a junk
dealer. Major Phelps, in looking for
his supplies, discovered the long-forgotten
but bulky heap, the contents of
which had long since been, condensed
into one small book, and, after consul
taticn with Land Commissioner Eaton,
sent for a dray, when the old paper
I was hauled away. .

- A seven-eighths coat and full plaited skirt form the foundation of this

Handkerchief a Used
to Finish Waist
Most every woman has at least one
or two waists in her wardrobe which
she thinks unbecoming, or which she
thinks is not dressy or trimmed
enough. A pretty and at the same
time an extremely inexpensive trim
ming for such waists is made of two
handkerchiefs and some ribbon. Hand
kerchiefs which just about match your
waist in texture should be chosen. If
the blouse is of sheer, fine material
choose a dainty handkerchief with an
edging of dainty lace. Handkerchiefs
which have a tiny colored border
should be chosen if the waist is not of
as dressy a make.
The handkerchiefs are folded di
agonally from about an inch above one
corner to an inch above the other. If
folded correctly one corner of the
handkerchief will fall about an inch
inside the corner of the other. Six
little rosettes of ribbon a quarter of
an Inch wide are made. Two for the
back are connected by two little straps
of the ribbon an inch and a half long.
One of these rosettes is fastened to a
folded corner of each of the handker
chiefs. The handkerchiefs are then
laid over the shoulders, with the cor
ners falling slightly over the sleeves
and the folded line nearest the neck.
Two rosettes are then fastened on a
folded corner of each handkerchief in
the same manner as the back was fast
ened. Two straps of ribbon an inch
and a half long join the ruche of the
two opposite bows.
The straps on one side should be
fastened with small hooks and eyes so
that the handkerchief bertha may be
put on and taken off wthout havng to
slip It pver the head.
The handkerchiefs which one girl
used in making this exquisitely dainty
little garment were monogram band
kerchiefs edged with lace, and the
result was quaintly charming.
This is a new notion that has come
in with the demand for supple, close
fitting combination undergarments.
The most usual "combination" is a
corset cover and petticoat in soft
satin. It ends at the knees and is
lengthened to the ankles only by a
plisse of chiffon without foundation,
and over this is worn the absolutely
unlined broadcloth or velvet skirt.
But the newer combinations appear
in fine supple -chamois or suede in
many colorings, lengthened by a plisse
of mull to match, for this Is very
warm, and with a woven silk combina
tion suit under the corset is consid
ered warm enough for coldest weather.
From a good pattern cut a founda
tion of cheesecloth. Apply bits of
silk and velvet all over it, as in a
crazy quilt. After basting, stitch 'the
pieces to the foundation with bright
yellow silk, being careful not to
stretch the cheesecloth awry. Line
the garment with thin silk of any
color preferred; add a band of plain
silk or ribbon, round the sleeves, neck,
and down the fronts. An interlining
of wadding may be added if greater
warmth is desired.
As the present fashions demand a
svelte figure, with small, gracefully
sloping hips, a great deal can be done
to produce the desired effect by a
most careful fitting of the foundation
skirt. If one's hips are too large it is
well to carefully avoid all possible ac
cumulation of cloth below the waist
line. To this end, skirts may be made
to button on to the chemise or to the
bottom of the corset. This does away
with any but the most necessary layer
of garment at this part of the figure.
To obtain the desired fullness at the
bottom of the skirt, a four or five inch
dust ruffle should be attached to the
bottom of the skirt. Over this should
be a deep flounce, which reaches to a
point just below the knee. The flounce
should be mediumly full.
The black hem at the foot of skirts,
without losing any of its popularity, is
being gradually extended to other
colors. . For instance, a white skirt
with a broad hem of Nattier blue Is
considered very 'smart, this shade be
ing also employed on black materials
or tulle. The Housekeeper.
Oatmeal the Best
of Skin Beautifiers
"Did you know that common oat
meal, the kind that you have on the
breakfast table every morning, is the
best skin whitener in the world?"
asked the beauty doctor. "Women
think they must have salves from the
Orient and lotions from the Antilles
before they can be beautiful, but my
experience is that this climate grows
just as good beautifiers as any other.
Just take a heaping tablespoonful of
soft creamy oatmeal from the break
fast table to-morrow morning and
smuggle it to your room. Then pour
over it a teaspoonful of oil of sweet
almonds and rub the two up into a
nice thick paste for your hands and
"But Isn't It awfully sticky?" quer
ied the perplexed patient.
The beauty doctor laughed. "You
wear it under gloves," said she.
"There's nothing better, by the way,
for just this purpose than that pair
of chamois gloves that you used to
wear in here last summer. I suppose
they have seen their day now, so you
can put them on night duty. Simply
coat the hands and arms with the oat
meal paste and then slip on the gloves
last thing before you hop into bed."
"But don't I have to wash my hands
in something special first?" asked the
worried beauty seeker.
"It's a good plan to use soap and
water on the hands now and then," ad
mitted the doctor. "If the water is
hard, soften it with a pinch of borax,
but not any more, as it dries the skin
terribly. Your hands are quite free
from hairs, so you can use plain white
castile soap on them. Castile is oily,
you know, so it encourages any ten
dency that you might have to fuzzy
arms. If ever you are troubled, just
try rubbing them with powdered
"My sister tried that," said the pa
tient, "and it took all the skin off."
"That's because she got f o interested
in seeing the hairs come off that she
forgot it was her arm and not the floor
she was scrubbing," replied the beauty
specialist. "You have to go at these
things carefully. Mix the pumice with
cold cream and use a flannel rag.
Don't try to do it all in one day. Scrub
a little every night, using the oatmeal
and almond oil afterward, and the skin
Possibly the English .women and
those of France love the colored hand
kerchiefs more than Americans. Amer
ican women will wear the colored ones
with -tailored frocks, but leave them
severely alone for other purposes.
Where one dees not care to have a col
ored one of solid effect, there are some
styles in white showing barred lines
of mauve, brown, purple, red and blue
outlines. There is no denying the fact
that the pure white linen handkerchief
has established itself too firmly to be
ousted by the faddish little bits of
color, though why must one hang- so
tenaciously to a certain style, for to
take up with a fad makes one appre
ciate all the more the simple styles
when they are again adopted.
