The Kational Corn exposition, held In
Ornate.. lie bwn voted a complete success
by the Scientific men and Journals who
war Interested In It and took the palna to
Investigate It. Newspapers anc? periodicals
of all descriptions all over the United States
hare aunt Ha praises.
A few extracts from some of the promi
nent - afrlcuJtural papers of the country
hare been - collected and here reprinted as
reflecting the ' general sentiment. r..c,e
papers, which had personal representatives
at th exposition, ' have looked deep and
far Into th exposition and what It means.
They hare paid stout tribute to the men
responsible for It and to Omaha for its
shara of responsibility:
Can Haralr Ba Orerdrawa.
,Th significance of the National Corn
exposition, held at Omaha, Nob., last week
can hardly 'be exaggerated. It lifts an Im
portance far beyond the Idea suggested by
Its name, for first of all It means that the
tremendous poeslblllties of the soil are
coming to ba recognised and properly
placed. The farmer Is just awakening to
the fact that he has only begun to de
velop the great opportunities for wealth
production before him. In order to make
the most of these possibilities he must
make careful and scientific study of his
conditions and employ the most advanced
methods of selection and breeding In the
Improvement of his crop. At the corn ex
position met h wis and results from the best
were on exhibition and the opportunities
for gaining knowledge in this direction were
endless. While at the exposition Corn was
"king" and Alfalfa "queen," oats, rye,
wheat, millet, clover, timothy all had their
place, for every grass or grain grown
wherever corn Is grown had a place In the
exhibit, ,250.000 square feet of floor space
being necessary to accommodate the im
mense exhibits. This was made possible,
since the Auditorium proper contains but
one-fourth enough, by housing In one of
the main streets of Omaha and erecting
temporary structures on adjoining lots. All
were heated to a comfortable temperature
by numerous furnaces and Illuminated by
several thousand Incandescent bulbs. Na

. Greatest Thing; In the World.
The National t Corn exposition was the
most Important agricultural event in the
Interest pf grain and grass crops that ths
world hss ever known. It was far more
than a mere display of specimens. It was a
short course of study In a great university
where the methods of Intensive farming
were taught 'and demonstrated. Not only
were these lessons taught by the exhibits,
which were comprehensive, but by lectures
and demonstrations, which were delivered
by the most noted men and women In the
United States, No such opportunity as this
has, ever existed in . the lifetime of the
farmer. If he were able to absorb but a
email fraction of the information and prac
tical knowledge that was placed at his dis
posal and could put that knowledge to
actual use on . his home farm, the result
would be Immediate In the Increased pro
duction of bis acres. Kansas (Topeka)
Moat Excellent Shore.
It was a most excellent show. For those
who attended vlth a purpose 4o learn
something It was educational; In fact It
epitomised. In a way, the sum total of
knowledge concerning practical methods of
corn and small grain Improvement. While
the .central thought that Impressed the ob
serving visitor was grain Improvement
from a breeding point of view, many other
features which contribute to the same end
were Interestingly displayed. Many experi
ment stations were represented with
graphic examples of some of their recent
work which were explained by the parties
In charge of these exhibits In a most ef
fective manner. Dally meetings were held
In the Auditorium building at which lec
tures were given by experts on the many
subjects tonched upon by the great show.
These meetings were uniformly well at
tended and much appreciated by visitors.

days during which the show was held lis

Bias; eat and Best.
It is the biggest thing of its kind ever
projected. Its educational features dearly
outclass those or any similar show. We
regard It as especially Important that It be
largely attended by the young men on the
farm. They can learn there some things
that they cannot learn anywhere else. It
will set them to thinking along new lines,
and should be productive of tremendous
benefit both to them and to the agricul
tural Interests. The livestock Inspector
and Farm News, Enid,' Okl.
In that one word lies the essential benefit
ami the crowning feature of the National
Corn exposition Just held for ten days In
Omaha, under the auspices of the National
Corn association, which made Omaha the
permanent home of the exposition.
A vast number of young farmer attended
the exposition. That was the object sought
in the beginning to get the boys and young
men who are to be the farmers of the fu
ture to study the lessons of Intensive farm
ing. These youths listened to the scientists
from the various states and countries ex
plain and saw them illustrate the prin
ciples they have made practicable. The
Idea that they will go back to their farms
and put Into operation the theories they
learned Is the basic principle on which the
hopes of success for the corn exposition
turn. The sight of hundred and even thou
sands of these young farmers lined up be
fore the school of Improved farming waa
Inspiring. Northwestern Agriculturist,
How to Measure Results.
Imagine several thousand young men and
boys coming from the farms In various
states to this school of intensive farming,
drinking In through lecture course and
practical test of proven principles, the ways
to make two bladea of grass grow where
but one grew before. What Is to be the re
sult? They go back to their homes and
begin putting Into practical operation the
theories they have learned and the princi
ples they have seen demonstrated. And
what Is the result of that? Count It in next
year's harvest and the cash receipts and
In the year after that 'and that and that
and so on. The purpose of this exposition
then deals with the future. It is to edu
cate the farmers up to that point where
they will know exacly how to till the soil,
to select their seed, to treat their crops so
to multiply to the maximum degree the
possibilities of the harvest. The Agricul
tural Southwest. (Wichita.).
Permanent In Character.
It has been the effort of the exposition
management to convince people that this
la not a passing show to be given this year
and forgotten next, but a permanent In
stitution of national and International
scope for the education of farmers in the
beat methods of raising, not only com,
but every kind of grain and grass grown
wherever corn Is grown. In short, fhe Na
tional Corn exposition Is a grand clearing
house for the progressive ideas of well-directed
and intelligent labor and the best
product of the season's harvest. It Is the
embodiment of a campaign of education
along the lines of Improved farming, born
many years ago and developed by such
crusades as the "Corn Gospel," Inaugurated
In Iowa in 1904. To teach men how to make
two bladea of grass grow where, but one
grew before Is, therefore, the fundamental
principle, and yet, the farmer who derives
no broader view of the exposition than
that, misses much of the purpose of the
Institution. Farm and Stock. (St. Joseph.)

The fourth annual show of the Trans

tion and the first annual show of the Ne
braska Kennel club closed Saturday night
at the Auditorium and both have been
most successful and both have been fore
runners of bigger things for next year.
More people have attended the show than
last year, and while the expenses have been
greater tho poultry association will have a
neat sum In the treasury with which to
plan for a much larger show next year and
already plans have been laid along those
Both associations have elected new officers
and a new board of directors, both boards
being composed of men Interested In the
several lines and big shows for next year
are assured. The Kennel club did not have
much to start with, but a little enthusiasm
but such a splendid exhibition .was made
that dogs will be sent from all sections of
the country to the kennel show next year.
The exhibit far surpassed even the antici
pation of the directors and visitors were
surprised at both the quantity and quality
of the exhibits.
The display of pigeons has also been en
couraged to such an extent that several
times as many birds are expected next
year. The fact that a game bird carried
off the highest honors of the show has also
encourage the breeders of game bantams
and this class will also be encouraged.
"As the association grows we will bo
able to offer bigger and better prises."
said George II. Lee Saturday night "Just
as this show far surpassed our previous
efforts so will the next show be corres
pondingly better. We have given the big
gest show of the west this year and next
year we will double our efforts.

Jeff W. Bedford, Jr., of Hyscham. Mont,
B years old and son of Jeff W. Bedford,
councilman from the Twelfth ward and
county commissioner-elect from the Fifth
district died suddenly of acute quinsy at
Forsythe, Mont, New Year's evening. He
had written home to his young wife, whom
he married last August and to his father
and brothers In Omaha, the letters being
dated Monday. December 28, saying that
he was In the best of health and expected
a happy New Year and a winter visit in
this city. The next heard in Omaha was
the news of his sudden death.
Mr. Bedford had lived In Montana for
about two years In order to secure and
care for a valuable claim about to be Irri
gated. He was well liked and well spoken
of by all who knew him. Thursday he ar
rived at Forsythe from Hyscham, where
he had been living, to make final proof on
bis claim, and he died the next morning.
This Is the only death that has occurred
In the family of Councilman Bedford, who
has had seven children, all of whom are
now grown men and women. The othors
are Mrs. Jennie B. Gluck, Cambridge, Neb. ;
Mrs. R. W. Montague, Mexico, Mo.; LeSeur
and Edwin Bedford and Mrs. Stella Wilson,
Omaha; Mrs. J. Lenoir White, Holdrege,
Neb. The body of Jeff W. Bedford, Jr.,
will be brought to Omaha for burlap prob
ably arriving on Wedensday.
He was a graduate of the Lake grade
school and had also attended the Farnam
school. He belonged to Calvary Baptist
church. Twenty-fifth and Hamilton streets.
Miss Geneva Woodruff, daughter of an
employe of a local railroad, was married to
him last summer and had recently been
living in this city, where her husband In
tended to spend the winter. He saw one
and a half years of active servloe In
Company E, First Nebraska, during the
Spanish-American war, being oh the firing
line in the Philippines most of the time
and distinguished himself for bravery and
efficiency. He was the only known Ne
braska Son of the Amercan Revolution who
fought in the late war, and. was entitled to
special medal from the government, but
he never claimed It While serving In the
Phillppnes be waa shot once through the
Death of Fred Armstead.
Frederick Slmonds Armstead, son of Mr.
and Mrs. George W. Armstead, died at the
home of his parents In North Bend on
Tuesday, December 29. He was born In
Columbus, O., September 29, 1872, and came
with his parents to Nebraska while yet a
small boy. Fred was one pf a family of
twelve children, and is the third to pass
away. Father, : mother, six brothers and
three sisters survive him. He leaves a wife
snd one child, a daughtor. The cause of Mr.
Armstead a death was luDercuiosis, rrom
which he was a patient sufferer for many
Mr. Armstead was a Jeweler and watch
maker by trade and. . worked In North
Bend until the ravages of the disease com
pelled him to cease all labor. ,
One of the incidents of the funeral, and
one seldom seen, was the spectacle of six
stalwart brothers officiating as pallbearers
for the seventh brother. A male quartet
rendered several selections at the church,
and the service at the cemetery consisted
of a single prayer.
Mr. Armstead was for four years a mem
ber of the Woodward Stock company
while they were here and later went to
Lincoln with the Fulton Stock company. He
waa also on the road with several companies.

YEAR BEGUN WITHOUT HOMES
Eviction Baits and Jodgments Started
ia Large Numbers la Coarts of
Justices of the Peace.
About forty residents of the city and
heads of families have begun the new
year with a search for homes. At least
that number of dispossession suits have
been heard and eviction writs granted In
Justice courts within the last few Jays, and
Saturday the rush of landlords to get rid
of nonpaylng tenants was heavy. The
merit of the rases varied: Some were
against out and out "beats;" soii)eT"Maa
agalnat men who have been struggling
helplessly against .- adversity ; some who
waged a battle with John Barleycorn, an.l
evenuated as successful as did Burns with
the Big Moke In Australia.
There were also a large number of suits
filed to get Judgment on bills. There will
be many more of these before the month
of January Is concluded, for tho time of
paying the piper Is at hand, and In some
cases there Is not the means, and in
others the disposition Is a trifle shy, not
to say coy.

There is no way of making lasting friends like " Making Good"; and
Dr. Pierce's medicines well exemplify this, and their friends, after more
than two decades of popularity are numbered by the hundreds of thou
sands. They have "made good" and they have not made drunkards.
A good, honest square-deal medicine of known composition is
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery,
It still enjoys an immense sale, while most of the preparations that have come into promi
nence in the earlier period of its popularity have gone by the board " and are never
more heard of. There must be some reason for this long-time popularity and that is
to be found in its superior merits. When once given a fair trial for weak stomach, or
for liver and blood affections, its superior curative qualities are soon manifest; hence it
has survived and grown in popular favor, while scores of less meritorious articles have
suddenly flashed into favor for a brief period and then been as soon forgotten.
For a torpid liver with Its attendant Indigestion, dyspepsia,
headache, perhaps dizziness, foul breath, nasty coated tongue,
with bitter taste, loss of appetite, with distress after eating,
nervousness and debility, nothing Is as good as Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery,
It's an honest, square-deal medicine with all its ingredients printed on bottle-wrapper
