fFrom a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Oct. 27. (8pclal.) The bu
reau of labor and statistics haa completed
la estimate of the corn crop of 1906 and of
the compilation Chief Clerk Despaln Bald:
"With the aid of 1.700 assessor with
whom thla office labored Industriously for
four month to the end that every acre of
corn in the state would be enumerated, and
with the further co-operation of 900 crop
correspondents (ten tn each county), who
have reported crop yields In their communi
ties according to their best, conservative
Judgment, the bureau finds the corn crop
of Nebraska to be 243,713.244 bushels, at a
value of $97,485,297.80. This production la an
Increase of 16,754.060 bushels over 1904.
"Many estimates have been made by va
rious interests on thla year's corn crop,
some of them being; aa high aa 300,000,000
bushels. Buch a production would mean an
average yield for the atate of about forty
eight bushels per acre. Thla la Impossible.
When considering an enormous yield like
thla It la well to remember that In 1904 only
six states tn the union exceeded thirty
five bushels In their average yield. Only
one, Maine, had thirty-nine bushels; Con
necticut had 38. t. New Jersey 88, Illinois
l. 5, Massachusetts 38 and Vermont 85.1.
AH theae are old states where soil culture
and fertilization la an Important factor In
their agricultural production.
"The bureau's enumeration thla year haa
been made with the most thorough and
tomplete organization of crop correspond
enta in thla or any other. state, and the
figures are Issued with the" greatest confl
Jence aa to their accuracy. It Is the larg
jst corn crop In the state's history and Ne
jraska will retain Its rank of third place
In the corn calendar.
"While a larger figure or yield would
boom the state more, yet we do not desire
to do so at the expense of the farmers by
influencing a bearish market and lower

Officers May Test School Law.
"Aa a reault of the attempt on the part
of the school board of Lincoln to compel
state officers who vote In school districts
ither than this one, to pay tuition for
:helr children who are, attending the public
schools of this city, a test may be made
of the school, law which requires non-resident
pupils to pay tuition. At thla time a
movement la on foot to have one of the
state employea bring mandamus proceed
ings against tha school board should It
refuse admittance to those children whose
parents refuse to pay tuition, to compel
the board to do so. In this way 'the su

Secretary Morris of the school board haa
notified the state officers and employes that
he will oall upon them for tuition money
within a few days. The total amount that
will be taken out of the state bouse will
be in the neighborhood of $500. Borne of
the employes will be hit pretty hard, aa

The state officers and employes are up in

The board Issued Its order because of

The Toung Men's Christian association
rustlers, who are getting together the
funds for the erection of the new associa
tion building, have dug up some 815.000 of
the 826,000 necessary for the beginning of
the structure. Today the local committee
was reinforced by H. A. Stone of Omaha,
and Secretary Wade of that city will be
here In a few days to help the movement
along. The committee expects to raise the
826,000 within the next four days.
Samples Have Disappeared.
Members of the Board of Public Lands
and Building are wanting a Sherlock
Holmea to tell them what has become of
some sample napkins, comb and brush and
shoes which were used by the board In
buying goods and then supposedly sent
to the different Institutions to be kept by
the superintendent for the purpose of com
parison. Letters were received today by
the board that these articles have not ar
rived though long overdue. The goods are
submitted to the board by the merchant,
then If they are bought they are sent to
the Institution and kept there to see If
the goods bought are up to the standard
of the sample. They then become the
property of the state and are paid for.
The board doea not know whether the goods
were lost enroute or were put enroute. The
goods are taken care of by a Janitor while

' Eld Lawrence la Lucky.
- Great gobs of luck have perched on the
broad shoulders of Ed Lawrence, bond
clerk In the office of the state auditor until
now fellow employes are rubbing him on
the head to get a share of it. This spring
he drew a piano In a guessing contest. He
drew a watch in a raffle; next he guessed
the exact score of the first Nebraska foot
ball game and got a Jack Jot; next he drew
a Jackpot of several pieces on the Michigan
game, barely missing the score. Yesterday
though, was the climax.' His mother wrote
for him to get her a pair of shoes, lined,
which she could not get at home. Lawrence
bought them. Today he received a letter
from the merchant that he was the fiftieth
customer to buy shoes in a certain time
and enclosed" a check for the money he paid
for the shoes. That Is all to date.

Draw the Line on Brides.
While the Board of Public Lands and
Buildings has not passed upon the matter
as a board, individually the members are
opposed to the members of the Soldiers'
home bringing under the common roof
tree sprightly young brides under 60 years
of age, which some of them contemplate
doing. The matter was brought to the at
tention of the board some time ago by
Superintendent Askwltu, but as yet no ofll
rial action has been taken In the matter.
It Is the sense of the board that the super
intendent should not permit any member
of the home to marry and bring to the
home his bride providing she is able to care
for herself. It Is the position of the board
members that the state should not be
called upon to care for anyone who la able
to care for himself or herself and espe
cially do they desire to place a ban on the
marrying proposition. Of course. If the sol
dier should marry a woman who Is un
able to care for herself the board would
allow him to bring her to the home. No
one under 60, however, can be taken Into
the home, so the board anticipates few
applications from the bride crop of 1906.
Contractor Is Dllltury.
Secretary Galusha returned this morning
from Grand Island where he went to look
over the home for old soldiers. The barn,
for which the contract was let In August
and which should have been completed by
this time, the secretary said, had not been
started and it Is likely the board will
adopt heroic methods to bring the con
tractors to time. The home, Mr. Galusha
said, was in excellent shape and he compli
mented Commander Askwlth for the way
ho Is managing the Institution. Just at
this time the commander is under the
weather, but expects to be all right

GLBXVILLB IS AFTER FIREBUGS
Money Raised to Ran Down Parties
HASTINGS. Neb., Oct. 27. -(Special.)
The citizens of Qlenyllle have begun a cam
paign in earnest against the firebugs who
have caused so much trouble In this vicin
ity recently. Yesterday a movement waa
started for the apprehension of the per
sons responsible for the 87.500 fire last week.
In lesa thaa cn hour 8500 had been sub
scribed for the purpose of defraying the
expenses of the Investigation. The service
of a detective has been secured and the
Investigation will proced at once.
The wildest kind of excitement 'has pre
vailed since the morning of the fire, as It
was generally believed at the time that

tense has the excitement become at times
that frequently open threats of lynching
were heard about the street. It was these
threats that led the more calm business
men to start a subscription list to raise
sufficient funds to make proper investiga
tion. Insurance companies of Lincoln who
were Interested In the recent losses have
volunteered their financial assistance In
bringing about the arrest of the firebugs.
The Farmers', and Merchants' Insurance
company, which held a risk on Mr. Bailey's
drug store, has notified Mr. Bailey that It
Intends to make a thorough Investigation
with a view of running down the Incen
diaries. One of the prominent business men of
Glenvllle expressed the sentiment of the
community yesterday, when he said: "We
are determined to put a stop to this fire
business. The fire of last week has done
more to hurt the town than anything that
has ever happened. Coming so soon after
the other attempts to bum out the same
property, It Is plain to be seen that a con
spiracy has existed. It was at first thought
that only one man waa responsible, but
recent disclosures have served to convince
that there are at least two and possibly
