A watexsjout is a miniature tornado
originating in a strong upward draft
of air which occurs above the surface
of a body of comparatively warm wa
ter. Its effect lirst becomes visible in a
circular motion at the point in the
clouds to which it ascends. This be
comes a whirl, which condenses the
vapor at its center, causing the por
tion of the cloud there to drop down
ward in the shape of a gigantic jelly
bag. At the same time the continuing
upward draft increases the rapidity of
its original swirl and the condensed
vapor caught within it until the
' ascending and descending masses join
to form the watersiwut. Necessarily
by this process the air beneath the
spout is rarefied, and thus where the
phenomenon occurs at sea the water
always seems to be sucked up into it,
although this is not really the case to
any considerable extent. For similar
reasons where a waterspout or torna
do passes over a building it does most
of its damage by exhausting the air
outside, causing what Is within to ex
pand and blow the structure to pieces.

The White Whale.
The white whale, or beluga. Is an
arctic cetacean and closely allied to the
narwhal. It is pure white in color,
twelve to eighteen feet long, whalelike
In form, with a huge muzzle and nu
merous sharp conical teeth.
The white whale swims with ex
traordinary speed by doubling its huge
tail under its body and then striking
out with it Scientists who have stud-
led It in its natural environs say that
It is able to catch the swiftest of fish
es, often pursuing Its prey far up the
northern rivers. It is gregarious and
may be seen at times in herds of fort
These herds not infrequently gambol
around boats in the arctic seas, and
the natives of Greenland often capture
them with harpoons or nets. The flesh
of the white whale, in fact. Is a con
siderable source of food supply to
them. From it also is derived one of
the finest grades of commercial oiL
The skins are tanned and the leather
sold in the trade as "porpoise hide."

Sing a Song of Sixpence.
The London Globe attempts an ex
planation of the rhyme "Sing a Song
of Sixpence." Here it Is: "The four
and twenty blackbirds represent the
four and twenty hours. The bottom
of the pie is the world. The top crust
represents the sky. The opening of
the pie Is the dawn of the day, when
the birds begin to sing, and surely
such a sight is fit for a king. The
king in his counting house counting
out his money is the sun. The money
the king is counting represents the
golden sunshine. The queen, who sits
in the parlor, is the moon. The honey
she Is eating Is the moonlight The
Industrious maid who is working in
the garden before the sun has risen
is the day dawn, and the clothes she
hangs out are clouds. The bird that
so tragically ends the song by nipping
off her nose is the hour of sunset"

Do you not feel a glow of comfort when you
think of the old home of your childhood where for
years you met with father, mother, brother and
One cannot have a home that casts such a
benediction over the life of his children unless he
owns it The renter is like driftwood tossed about
from place to place and never knows how long he
will be permitted to remain where he is. When a
man owns his home there is something to live for.
Every tree he plants and every nail he drives is a
joy to him.
The great struggle of today is for better homes.
Whether you are in the east, in the central states,
or in the west, you will find men earnestly search
ing the maps for the location of certain sections of
the country that have been recommended to them
as favorably for improving their present conditions.
The passenger trains are crowded almost every
month of the year with persons who are going
somewhere in search of homes. Considering .the
cost of good land in the eastern and central states
it is not surprising that so many are seeking the
west, where the chances of prosperity are many
times better than they are in the said eastern and
central states. Among all the localities that are
now open for investment there is none that sur
passes western Nebraska. Land can be bought at
such prices that one crop will pay several times the
The population is at present very scarce. It,
however, is rapidly increasing. Not only is the
deeded land becoming more thickly settled, but the
government lands have all been taken up and con
tain thriving and prosperous farmers and stock
There is No Time Like the Present
Now then, since the climate is good, soil pro
ducive, crops remunerative, rainfall abundant, water
pure, and land values certain to rise, why not buy
now? You have probably thought many times that
yon would go out and buy as soon as you could get
away, but you have put it off time and again until
you have practically forgotten about it Did you
ever stop to think that the man who acts quickly
gets his profit from fellows who wait awhile? We
have made scores of sales to men this year whom
we asked last year to come out and buy for far less
money. We will make scores of sales this coming
year to men who could come and buy now for far
less money than the will pay when they do come,
simply because now is the time to buy.
We Have Several Special Bargains
in Cheyenne County, Nebraska
We are making trips each week and on each trip
we sell land. We would not sell this land if it did not
fulfill the promises that we make for it We know we
have the values and we know our prices are right
Come in and talk it over, anyway.
