BENEFIT OF CROP SPECIALS
Effect Too Gnat to Be Appreciated How,
8ayi A. Darlow.
PEOPLE ARE AFIRE WITH ENTHUSIASM
4m Lata aa Midnight Crowda Greetnd

Crop Goaprl from Srlen
"To give you loini idea of tfcs Interest
tn&ntfest In these seed corn specials, and
particularly the one the Union Padflo has
Just brought back, let me say that at one
place we stopped at 11:30 at night we
found at least 200 people assembled, eager
to hear the gospel of crop cultivation."
aid Alfred Darlow of the Union Pacific,
who was In charge of the excursion that
lasted three days, ending Friday. "The
good these specials are doing cannot easily
be estimated. People are manifesting the
most vital interest In them. We found, on
numerous occasions, evidences of the prac
tice of our preaching farmers have put
Into effect doctrines they heard last year
and this year's preaching will be as readily
followed. It Is a great tiling for Nebraska
and for those people dependent upon the
products of Nebraska, for It will give to
the world the best that land Is able to
"Generally we found that while people
were Interested In hearing of how to cutl
Vate this crop and that, they wanted more
especially to know about corn. " Corn Is
king; that certainly was made plain to us.
"Now, when you consider the unfavorable
weather bllzsards part of the time we en
countered on this last tour and the large
crowds which everywhere greeted us, you
can appreciate the force of my assertion
when I say 'the people of Nebraska are
afire with enthusiasm over these specials.
Not EnoiKh Car Spare.
"We had three lecture coaches and they
Were not sufficient to accommodate the de
mand. People runhod In at every point
and. we soon discovered our mlBtake in
not having more car room. One of these
coaches was for lectures on soil, another
on corn and the third for various other
"The lectures were comprehensive In
scope, treating on the selection of the seed,
planting and Its treatment until the plant
was brought to the fruition of complete
development. Here are only a few of the
hints that were dropped:
Pick seed In fall before freezing weather.
Hang seed corn In a dry. well-venttlateJ
room, where It can be thoroughly dried
before freezing, or else kept warm enough
not to freeze. But it must be kept dry in
Lo not send to a distance for seed corn
Unless you can get a Well bred variety. Even
this may not yield as well as your own
corn for two or three years, and, if the
type Is not adapted to your region may
never do so.
How does the selection of seed Increase
the yield? By Increasing the amount of
corn on the ear. There are a number
of points to be considered In selecting
ears of superior excellence. A cylindrical
ear carries more corn and more uniform
kernels than a tapering ear. A taper
ing ear may be due to kernels growing
smaller toward the tip, or the dropping
out of rows, which makes Irregular sized
kernels and lessens the amount of corn.
It may thus be seen that a tapering
ear, by dropping out rows or shortening
kernels, may decrease the corn on the
ear by five to ten per cent. A rough ear
with a deep kernel produces the greatest
yield of corn. It Is obvious that a deep
kernel Is desirable, as It produces from
3U to 30 per cent more corn on the same
cob, than will a shallow kernel. A rough
kernel Is desirable because It is a deep
kernel. On the other hand, a smooth kernel
la usually shallow.

MOISE CASE BEFORE MUNGER
Salt tor Falsifying nklsky Barrel
Contents Likely to Go to
It now begins to look as If the case of
the United States agalnat Walter Motse
Co., in the matter of the seizure of seven
barrela of whisky, will be tried in the
United States district court. It was ex
pected the trial would begin next Monday,
but owing to the absence of W. F. Ourley,
the attorney for the defendants, In Wash
ington, the hearing may go over until the
first of the following week.
Suit la brought against Molse ft Co. for
affixing revenue stamps upon the seven
barrels of liquor for a greater amount
than the casks actually contained. The
liquor was seized by the government and
ts still held by the government revenue offi
cers. The plea of the defense was the gov
ernment was not the sufferer, because It
had received a grater revenue from the
sale of the stamps than the contents Indi
cated. The government, on the other hand.
held It was a violation of the revenue laws
In having a less quantity of liquor in the
casks than the stamps Indicated and that
the offense was just as serious as if there
had been a greater quantity of liquor In the
casks than indicated by the revenue
stamps. The fact of deception existed,
nevertheless, and the contention of the gov
ernment is that Molse & Co. are conse
quently amenable under the law.

ELEVATOR SITE IS CHOSEN
Hye-Schnelder-Fowler Firm Will
Erect MIUIon-Bnshel Plant
In Sooth Omaha.
After months of looking around for a
good location for Its new elevator the Nye-
Schnelder-Fowler Elevator company has
decided to locate Us new l.ouo,000-bushel
elevator In South Omaha on the Belt line
or Missouri Pacific tracks. This decision
has been reached and it remains to be de
termined whether the elevator will be built
on the junction of the Missouri Pacific and
Northwestern or a little farther south, or
nearer South Omaha.
Until the purchase of the Ferguson line
of elevators on the Burlington Friday by
the Updike Oraln company, the Schneider
company was the largest company In Ne
braska, owning about seventy-five eleva
tors, situated principally on the North
western road. The business of the com
pany demanded that It own a terminal ele
vator In Omaha, which has come to be rec
ognized as one of the big grain markets of
the world, so the owners have been seek
ing a site for some time. The company
does not at present own any Omaha elevator.
