SAND HILLS BECOME PROLIFIC
Former Valueless Tracts in Nebraska
Are Now Covered with Turf.
ALFALFA GROWN WITH SUCCESS

Tha sand hills of Nebrauka ar this yar :
dm.)n.trtln that they ara evm more
aluaile than the low lands." Thua apoke
U. J. Yeoman, one of the extensive rattle '
racers in the vicinity of Valentine, who
In mopping; at the Millard. i
"Twenty yeara ago we did not think the
and hill were worth ten cent an acre,
and they were not. Then they were simply
l ;ea of white sand, big blowouts occur
rir.g every one hundred rods or to. Then
Klnkalders came In, fenced up the land
and managed to discontinue the annual
burning of the range. As a result, those
same sand hilla are now covered with blue
stem, which ha formed a heavy turf, af
fording the finest pasture In the world.
Even thla summer many of the home
steaders have been able to cut from one to
two tons of wild hay per acre right on
the sides of the hills that years ago wore
nothing but masses of avhlta sand.
"Now, as to alfalfa. It waa thought
that It would not grow upon the vand
hills, but It waa tried In a number of
places two and three years ago with the
result that this year these same farmers
have cut three crops, and the fourth is
about ready to be harvested. Tou know
that while the sand Is dry upon the top,
an Inch or two from the surface, even In
the dryest weather, you can pick up a
handful of thla sand and squeeze water
out of It. It never drya out to any depth.
And then too, the sand seems to supply a
food that makes the most nutritious al
falfa that can be grown.
"I predict that In another ten years,
after this Nebraska sand hills country
cornea Into 1U own. It will, even the poor
st, have a value of from $50 to ISO per
acre, Just for grazing and hay land."
Farmer Wllsoa rlraard.
Farmer John Wilson of Thayer county,
while In the rotunda of the Merchant's
hotel, regaled listeners with details con
cerning the crops that he and hla neigh
bors ire raining this year. Said Wilson:
"Willie my wheat, which Is all of the
all variety, yielded but twenty bushels
per acre, the quality was the beet I ever
rained. It weighs out sixty-one pounds to
the bUHhel. Oats are practically a failure,
but we are going to get better than an
average crop of corn. The hot, dry
weather of July seemed to stunt the corn,
but when the rains of this month came on,
it took on new life and is simply boost
ing, in some fields the corn grows so fast
i hut it actually pulls the roots out of the
Kiound. . I figure that with seasonable
weather and a fairly late fall, our crop
will he fully up to tho average. Potataea

"Speaking about ltnea of demarkatlon

aot." said Roland Conway at the Roma
hotel, "reminds me of the fact that rain
sometimes Indulges In some peculiar
Conway had been listening to some men
describing a rainfall of five and ona-half
Inches that visited a section of country
thres mles southwest of South Omaha last
week. Forty rods away from tha point
of the heaviest precipitation, not a drop
ef rain fell. It waa then thla outsider
butted in and said:
"Last Tuesday I was coming across the
Nevada desert, riding In on of tha South,
em Paciflo trains. I waa sitting in one
if tha seats In a day coach, on the north
sde of the car. Looking out of tha win
flow, just after we had passed Elko. I
law a heavy black cloud ahead. There
Cor miles the track is straight as an ar
row. "W ell; the train bowled along at a pretty
good clip and we soon came up with the
loud and an inxtant later plunged Into
imp of the hardest rain storms I ever
witnessed. But as strange as It may seem,
ihe eilKe of that storm seemed to be hang
ins over the center of the railroad track.
Cn the south side there was not a drop
of lain? while on the north, the water waa
.oming down In torrents. To the south
;no could look out and see the sun, while
lo the north, the cloud was so dense and
(lie rain was corning down so rapidly that
.t was ImposHltile to see more than ten
feet distant. This continued during tha
whole of a run of nearly thirty miles,
a lien we pasned out Into bright sunshine.
"During the remarkable, run, I went to
the rear of the train and looked back.
It was a sight well worth seeing. The
cloud seemed to stand up like a wall. Its

character are quite common in the ex
