Railroad Men See Bright Prospects
for Good Yields.
RECENT RAINS ARE GREAT HELP
Prank Fowler I Most Optimistic
Over the On (look aud Predicts
a Bumper Crop In This
In their predictions relative to a winter
wheat and small grain crop, railroad
men are . as optimistic as they were
three weeks ago. A DeBernardl, general
superintendent of the Missouri Pacific,
with headquarters in Kansas City, was
In Omaha on his return from a trip that
took blm over every mile of the com
pany Unes In Kansas and Nebraska, and
in speaking of the crop outlook said:
"My trip was for the purpose of learn
ing the truthfulness of the reports that
the small grain crop of Nebraska and
Kansas had been seriously injured by1 dry
weather and climatic conditions. ,After a
thorough Investigation and a careful ob
servation I have no hesitancy In saying
that throughout the country tributary to
the Missouri Pacific in Nebraska and
Kansas, the winter wheat crop will be
fully up to the average. Where spring
wheat Is raised it Is In splendid condition
and the same Is true of the oats and the
barley. Corn looks well, but It 4s too
early to make any predictions on the
crop, However, corn has not been dam
aged by cutworms to the extent that
has been reported. The stand Is good,
it is free from weeds and at this time
appears to be in the best possible con
dition. "There are some Isolated spots where
winter wheat has been damaged by dry
weather, but they are limited in area.
These instances are found 'every year.
On the whole, I think the crop will be
fully up to the average.
Cattle Doing Fine.
The recent rains have put the pastures
in splendid condition and cattle are do
ing fine. Alfalfa never looked better and
the first cutting has been put .In the
stack, over a great portion of the coun
try." J. BrlnkheYhoff , superintendent of the
Kansas division of the Union Pacific,
Is In the city after a trip over all of the
Kansas llne-a trip that was made es
pecially for the purpose of Investigating
the reports of damage to crops In Kan
sas and south Nebraska.
Mr. Brinkerhoft states that the damage
Is nothing like what has been reported.
Through central and western Kansas,
wheat Is heading short, but the beads
are long and filled to the tips. In the
western part of the state, quite "season
able rains fell at Intervals during the.
latter part Of May and during the last
week they have been heavyT wetting the
Even out as far as the east line of
Colorado, Mr, Brlnkerhoff says the small
grain Is In the best condition In years
and. an average crop, If not better, Is
assured. Corn Is smalt, owing to the
recent cool weather, but it ha a good
stand and with warm weather will grow
In coming to Omaha, Mr. Brlnkerhoff
Small Grain Good.
In coming to Omaha Mr. Brlnkerhoff
traveled through southern Nebraska and
observed the conditions through the South
Platte country. He reports winter wbeat
In good condition and very little of it
fired. There are soma spots, he says,
where the crop will be light, but on the
while It Is going to be heavy. This," he
adds, will apply to all small grain.
Frank Fowler of the Nye. Schneider,
Fowler Elevator company Is out with his
second supplemental crop report of the
present week. In it he Is most optomlstlc
saying that the rains of Sunday anil
Monday night have worked wonders In
every portion of Nebraska, hardly any
locality In the state having been missed.
Mr. Fowter declares that throughout a
greater portion of the winter wheat pro
ducing area of Nebraska and Kansas
winter wheat will be considerable better
than' an average yleid. He adds that
routh and west of McCook and in Kansas,
where a week ago the wheat was re
ported to be almost a total failure, better
than half a crop will be harvested. He
predicts that farther north, where the
season is not so far advanced, the recent
rains coming on Just when they have
will bring the wheal. crop up to about
the estimate of last month.

combination or agreement with any other
candidate for the presidential nomina

going to wobble or wiggle a single bit.

MONEY NOT EVERYTHING
Good Health Is the Most
Valuable Asset a Man
UNITED DOCTORS CURE
They Are Curing Hundreds of Peo
ple Who Had Lost AU Hope. . -
Sordid "persona have made the state
ment that wealth will buy anything.
While this Is true In the main, and the
person with money finds many doors
open to him which would be slammed
.la his face were he poor, some of the
uvost desirable things in the world can
not be purchased at any price.
Every person who has been touched
by the blighting hand of disease would
barter his or her fortune for a single
day of health; yet how many have spent
small fortunes In a vain effort to re
gain their lost health, only to oe dis
appointed again and again and to be ovr
ertaken by death at last, for the simple
reason that they were unable to find the
physician who could ferret out the causa
of their disease and remove it, thus
giving them a complete and permanent
cure- If the cause of a disease cannot
be determined and a medicine made
which will remove that cause, a cure
canpot be effected.
That the United Doctors, those expert
medical specialists who have - their
Omaha offices located on the second
floor of the Neville block, corner Six
teenth and Harney streets, are able by
their scientific and careful examination
to determine the cause of deep seated
and chronic diseases and apply the
remedy which will remove that cause
and effect a complete and permanent
cure, is proven by the thousands of let
ters received by them from cured pa
tle.it each year. A case in point is
that of Mr. Hans Madson, a prominent
and influential farmer of Thurman, la.,
whose letter follows:
My Dear United Doctors:
I have taken your treatment three
months and I feel like a new man. I
can eat my three meals a day and enjov
them, and I sleep well and I work and
enjoy life. I used to feel so tired and
discouraged, now have life to take part
In everything, work and fun. I am cer
tainly thankful for what the United
Doctors have oono for me. The medi
cine Just hits the spot and cures the
sicknesa. i would advise every sufferer
to go to the United Doctors to be ex
amined and cured. There Is where I
found relief for my troubles.
Our country is flooded with n.edicines
and 1 have tried them all, but they have
done me no good. We have four medi
cine wagons traveling over our country
that will sell medicine that is good for
every kind of disease. I have bought a
lot of this kind of medicine, but it has
neter done mo any good. . I am glad and
thankful that I went to Omaha to the
United Doctors. They Wave been the
only help I could find and now I feel
well, but I will keep on taking their
treatment until I am fully cured.
If you eare to publish any of my let
ters you are at liberty to do so, and if
any sufferer wants to write to me I
shall gladly answer. Tours truly,
