From $90 Month to 81,090 is Fortune of BurlingtonMan Sixty days ago John Rogers, night fore man at the Burlington's roundhouse at Ureybull, Wyo., was drawing a salary of 0O per month. He Is still drawing that salary, but In Addition thereto he Is receiving 11,000 per month as-royalty from oil flowing from wells that have been drilled on a little tatch of land that ha owns Inside tha town limits of Greybull. Long before- oil was struck within the town limits of Greybull. Rogers bought four town lots, pretty well out In tha out skirts. .They cost htm a little more than MOO each. An oil strike was made at Greybull and subsequently wells were sunk on the block adjoining the one In which Rogers wned lots. Oil men came to him and wanted to buy his lots. He would not tell, but he made a lease. It providing that the parties taking the lease could drill wells and he be given a royalty. Drilling was commenced and continued with tha result that on the Rogers lots there are now four producing wells and his royalty on the oil amounts to $1,000 per month. However, he still wears his greasy overalls, works nights and draws his $90 per month from the Burlington.

BRAND LOOma FOR HELP H. R. Gould of the United States National bank bad to make good at the Farmers' Congress on bis esti mate of tho corn crop of the state. Gould Is the man who for several years baa carefully prepared an an nual crop estimate of Nebraska by taking the figures furnished him by hundreds cf banks In the state and hundreds of elevators. The farmers criticised the figures and said the corn crop was not nearly so large as represented here. C. H. Qiia tafson of Mead, president of the Farm ers' Union, read the figures, 23,000,000 bushels of corn, and declared he would give the president of the bank a new hat If there were actaully over 176,000,009 bushels of marketable corn pulled over the scales this winter. Maybe Gustafson didn't know Gould waa present. Maybe the reet of tha farm ers did not know, but Oould poped up un expectedly to defend his figures and he was granted tha privilege of the floor. Merchantable Cora. He walked back and took the pamphlet from Gustafson's hands. Then he read the report, which stated that of actually merchantable corn there la only lfl.OOO.OOO bushels, 'There," he said, addressing Oustafson particularly. "That la even below your own estimate, and yon ire accusing us of making the estimate too high. If you had put on your glasses you could have read this correctly." The matter of over-estimating crop re ports waa threshed out as a side Issue, coming up after C. J. Brand, chief of the office of farm marketing of the United States Department cf Agriculture, had made his talk on marketing. He was asked a hundred question and many of them were concerning the accuracy of the reports on volume of crop that are published by the government. finessed at Ftsjrsuros. Charles Wooster of Sliver Creek de clared the figures could be nothing but the wildest kind of a guess. "I know." he said, "because for aears I waa the man who was charged with the duty of furnishing the figures from my town ship every year. They aent me a blank form with long lists of questions to be filled out They asked such questions as "How many bushels of corn remain unnhelled, In the cribs of the township? It would have taken me a week to deter mine anywhere near accurately that one question alone, to aay nothing of the hundred others equally difficult. So I knew they expected nothing of me hut a crude guess, and so I made that guess with absolutely nothing at all to base It upon." Mr. Brand said If the farmers had sug gestions to make as to methods of Im proving the accuracy of the estimates, or any other suggestions with good bottom to them, tha department would be glad to consider them. Third Case in Row Taken from Jury in Federal Court When the litigants In the suit of Thomas J. Donahue against the Santa Fa and Burlington railroads came to an agreement for eettlement Wednesday In the midst of the trial before a Jury, It was the third consecutive case that haa boen taken 'from a' Jury In federal court before Judge T.

The- -case preceding this was Nelson Fish against the Union Pacific for i,X damages because of a shipment of twen ty-six cars of cattle held up at North Platte by the floods in 1911 This hinged on a point of law, and In ths midst of the case the Jury was sent out and tha lawyers argued and made concessions before the Judge. He now haa this casa under advisement. The case before this waa a 125,000 dam age suit brought by Mrs. Elisabeth Mo Coy against the Missouri Pacific railroad for tha death of her son, a car Inspec tor.

Advsr-tlsemcnU Practical Giving The approach of the holidays stimulates the spirit of Christmas giving and. as always, there are many people eafrer to help spread good cheer without knowine just how to do it For these generous-hearted people The Bee will again point out oppor tunities for practical Christmas giv ing that promises permanent results, especially to helpless women and de pendent children, by describing worthy cases that have been investi gated by the Associated Charities, with the assurance that any help received will really do the good in tended. The Bee's suggestions for practi cal Christmas giving should not in terfere with any one being a "good fellow" or a "big brother," cr furnishing some one a Christmas dinner who otherwise might have to put up with ordinary fare. This is a big world in which to plant happi ness and it is only a question of the best way. The cases for which this special appeal will be made are now being looked into by the Associated Charities.
