Finds Kittens, Not Eggs.
By Clifford Keller, Aged 12 Years,
Fullerton, Neb, Blue Side.
One night after my milking was
done, I went to look for a hen's nest.
I was looking in the straw banking
round the chicken house. I saw a
hole, expecting to find a handful of
eggs. And what do you think 1
found? ' ; : - '"
A nest of little kittens! I ran and
told everybody" I could find about my
hen's nest. The kittens are growing
just fine and will soon be as big as
their mother. This is the first story
I have written to the Busy Bee's page,
and I hope I am lucky enough to win
prize. I would like to join the Blue
Side, as it is my favorite color.

Visit to Riverview park.
By Edith Kenyon, 3222 Cuming Street,
Omaha, Neb. Blue Side.
A few weeks ago we went to River
view park. We took the main road so
we could see the animals. We thought
the bears were most interesting, so
we watched them for quite awhile.
There were two small bears and a
uivuivi m-. wvtiG vi iuv vats
of the imall bears had only three legs.
The other little bear was so frisky its
mother always ran after it.
Then we went up to see some other
kind of bears. They were grizzly
and cinnamon. ' The grizzly "was 12
yeara old. He would always open his
mouth up wide so everybody would
feed him. He was very greedy.
Later we found a nice shady place
and sat down to eat our lunch. After
lunch we decided to go and watch the
swimmers. After watching them for
quite a while we went home. We
were all very tired, but we also had a
a lovely time. . . i

"Bess and the Belfry."
By Nola Kerns, Age 11, Phillips, Neb.
i ' Blue side.
"It is not safe for you to be out
here alone, Bess," said Mr. Burton to
his daughter. "You must go into the
village and stay with Aunt Mary."
"Oh, father I I'm not afraid," re
plied Bess. "The British will not hurt
a little girl like me."- Bess was a
Dutch maid, who lived in New York
state in revolutionary days.
Dressed in her wooden shoes, with
yellow braids hsnging down over her
blue blouse, she made a pretty
' No, I am not atrald, continued
Bess, "and I mean to stay right here.
just like a boy."
So the father went out to work
at the chimney of the church, and
Bess busied herself in the kitchen.
"Bess, you really ought to go into
the village," said her father again
at tea. . . '
"We have rumors that the British
are approaching, but no one seems
to know anything certain. Our
American general is here, sick, and
a few of his men are at his house,
but not enough to defend the place
unless the planks are taken-up from
the bridge in time."
The father went to bed early, but
Bess sat up late. Then Tabs, the
white kitten, got away and ran down
toward the church. After her raced
Bess- The kitten, leaping over the
fence, jumped into the church
through the window, then through
the gallery and finally darted up the
steep steps into the belfry. Right
on the cat's heels came Bess, her long
hair streaming in the moonlight, up
the steps leaped the kitty, and up
the steps went Bess.
Then the kitten did a very wicked
thing. It sprang up amid the tim
bers which formed a high, steep lad
der reaching up to the very bell it
self. It clawed and climbed and
meowed, but kept on getting higher
and higher, and Bess came on as fast
as tier lat legs could tollow. unce
she looked below and set out again
to catch the kitten. When she looked
down, the house in which her father
lay sleeping seemed far away.
About a mile away lay the town,
its tew lights twinkling. Suddenly
the tramp of horses' feet oame, and
she saw a long column of men trot
ting toward the town. Now the
bridge was between Bess and the
town, and ahe realized that if she
could awaken the people they would
pull up the planks, and the British
could not pass the river. '
' Above her dangled the rope. The
bell swayed on the oaken beam. On
this same beam the kitten was
perched. She had gorgotten the cat.
The town must be awakened and the

general saved.' So she rang the bell
and awakened the people and they
pulled the planks jnst in time. Then
Bess climbed down with the cat So
in two or three days after she found
a package at her plate, and when
she opened it, there on the inside
was a beautiful gold medal for Bess.

Hone Stealing and Vigilance Com
mittees In every period of Nebras
ka history there has been some tell
ing of horses and cattle along the
frontier, and the settlers there have
organized to protect their stock and
punish the thieves. Hanging was the
usual punishment for stealing stock
in border settlements. "Vigilance

given to the settlers' clubs for their
own protection. The members of
to help each other and to punish
thieves. Cattle and horses were stolen
on a large scale after 1880, when set
tlements pushed into the war north
west. The deep canyons and the
sand hills made convenient places for
hiding stock, until it could be run
out of the country. Vigilance tom-
tiers throughout this frontier region.
There were numerous fights between
the settlers and the thieves. "Kid
Wade," a leader of the horse thieves,
was hung to a telegraph pole at Bas
sett in 1884, and "Doc Middleton," an
other, was shot and afterwards sent to
the penitentiary. This war between
the rujteters, as the stock thieves
were called, and the settlers lasted
learly twenty years, and ended only
when the building of railroads, tele
graph and telephone lines drove the
rustlers out of the state.

Arthur's First Mustache
A great event happened over at our
house the other morning. Pa was
busy reading The Sunday Bee and ma
was preparing some fish for dinner.
The fish was sent by Mr. Thomas,
who went up to the Wisconsin woods
with friends for a vacation. Trix, the
fox terrier, was dozing in the shade
at the side of the house, trying to
keep cool. It was a warm morning.
before 1 tell you about this great
event I want to say that grown-up
men and women think they have a
lot of trouble and vexation. Pa likes
to ssy "irritations of life. I should
worry about pa having irritations. I
guess the worst irritations he has are
the mosquito bites, and to near him
tell about them on the front porch
one would think he had been bitten
by i shark. Ma sometimes tells
about her troubles. The other day
the jell wouldn't jell, and; the next
day she forgot to, turn the electric
iron off and she burned one of pa's
shirts. She rushed to answer the tel
ephone and left the iron on the shirt
It was pa's favorite base ball game
shirt, the one with the broad stripes.
Pa was peeved when he learned about
his shirt. My pa and ma, and I sup
pose other pas and mas, seem to
think that boys and girls do not have
troubles and irritations I mean reg
ular troubles, anxieties and vexations.
Well, I suppose you are getting
curious about the great event tnat
happened, and it happened to a boy,
to Arthur, who is 14 years of age, go
ing on 15. He was in his room, fixing
up to go to the Presbyterian hospital
to see Mr. Livingstone, an old triend.
Suddenly he called to pa and when pa
went into the room, what do you sup
pose happened r Well, this is just
between usi Arthur discovered that
there was a fuzzy growth of some
thing on his upper lip. But that isn't
the real event The big event was
Arthur's discovery that his mustache
was going to a sort of white color.
His dismay was unmistakable when
he made this discovery.
Pa called to ma and ma called 'to
Mary Jane, and the result was a fam
ily reunion right in Arthur's room to
view hjs mustache.
"I never thought I would have a
son with a white mustache," ma said.
Pa said that is the way mustaches
start, and he advised Arthur not to be
discouraged. Mary Jane stuck her
handkerchief into her mouth to keep
from laughing. Trix began to bark
as if something was going on.
Arthur and Pa had a confidential
talk about the mustache. Arthur
called it a mustache, but it wasn't a
really . and truly mustache. You
would not notice it unless someone
would call it to your .attention, but
it was there just the same, and if you
had good eyes and the light was good
you could see it.
Ma told Arthur he would soon be
a man and would have to shave. She.
asked pa if he would give Arthur one
of his safety razors. Pa received
several safety razors as Christmas

Again A great painc came in 1893
while western Nebraska was being
settled, just as the panic bf 1873 came
when eastern Nebraska was being set
tled. Banks broke, factories shut
down, merchants failed all over the
country. Prices of farmers' produce
again tell to the lowest point and, al
though food was so cheap, working
men in the cities could scarcely buy
enough to keep from starving, because
they had no work. Thousands of men
out of employment gathered in ar
mies and marched across the country
to Washington to demand that con
gress should give them work., In
Nebraska whole townships in ' the
western part were deserted so that
one could ride all day finding nothing
but empty houses and fields growing
up to weeds. These hard times lasted
from 1890 until about 1900. ,
The Farmers' Alliance During the
years 1880 to 1890 a society called the
Farmers' alliance had spread over Ne
braska and other western and south
ern states. Its objects as stated were
to better the condition of farmers, to
help them to buy and aell on better
terms, to conduct evenins schools for
the instruction of members in the
science of exchana-e and srovernment
and to furnish means of social enter
tainment. The chief complaint af the
Farmers' alliance was that those who
handled what the farmer had to sell
took the larger part of what he pro
duced for themselves and that those
who made and sold what the farmer
had to buy charged him an exorbi
tant price. , The farmers also claimed
harvest, the farmers gathered by
thousands in great open air meetings
to talk over their grievances and to
plan how to remove them. Orators
of the common people addressed
these meetings, talking' to meres nf
eager faces amid great enthusiasm.
Many new speakers, both men and
women, first found their powers in
the excitement of this time. There
were processions of wagons many
miles long, filled with sunburned men,
women and children with home-made
banners and mottoes expressing their
iccungs. mere were songs witn
home-made words and music such as

The Contest! Governor Tamna E.
Boyd When the votes were counted
after the November, 1890, election, it
was lound that the farmers move
ment had elected a majority of both
houses of the legislature in Nebras
ka and the election of governor was
so close that a contest resulted. When
the legislature met in Lincoln in Janu
ary, 1891, excitement ran high. After
a struggle of tome days, the demo
cratic candidate, Jamea E. Boyd of
Omaha, was seated. A bill passed
both houses reducing railroad rates in
Nebraska. It was vetoed by Gov
crnor Boyd. A bill was passed adopt

means of which a man might vote his
convictions without the knowledge of

My Experiences In Gardening.
By Vera Deles Dernier, Aged 12
Years, Elmwood, Neb. Blue Side.
I had my first garden when I was
10 years old. My garden came up
good, but it was so dry that sum
mer that my onions were the only
thing that grew good. In the fall
I had three bushels, which I sold for
$3. Last year papa gave me a larger
piece of land. After he had harrowed
and plowed it I raked it all over with
the small rake, I then got a piece
of twine and two sticks. I tied one
end to each stick. I then got another
stick to measure the distance that I
wanted the rows apart. In that way
I got my rows straight I planted
tomatoes, peas, onions, cabbage and
sweet potatoes. , I got 50 contS by
selling my early tomato plants and
50 cents for my early cabbage plants.
I got $2 from my tomatoes when they
were ripe, $5 off my cabbage and $4
from my onions. That makes $12 in
all. This year I got my ground ready
same as before and planted tomatoes,
onions, peas, cabbage and sweet po
tatoes. I have made $l.5U on my
garden all ready.

Belgrade, June 6. If Serbia remains
under Austro-Hungarian control after
the establishment of peace the Balkan
state probably will take a prominent
position among the world s metal pro
ducing countries, as the present con
querors of Serbia are laying plans to
develop the mineral resources. In
antiquity the country was the largest
gold producer in Europe. Its copper
mines had, prior to the conquest of
the Balkans by the Turks, developed
to a considerable extent, those ex
ploited by a French company at Bor
netting annually as much as 60 per
cent of the capital invested.
Gold has been won in Serbia in re
cent years principally through placer
mining. The production was small,
however, as work was confined as a
rule to localities which had been al
ready worked over by the ancients.
Silver is found only in conjunction
with other metals. The copper ores
of Bor contain from ninety-six to 120
grammes per ton. The lead ores of
Postenje, near Kfupanj, and those of
Avala, on the Crneni mountain, also
furnish considerable silver. At Avala
quicksilver is also found. Tin is found
at several points, but so far no efforts
have been made to develop the de
posits. Arsenic exists at Jasikova.
Copper ores occur in ?rtat ouantitv.
Most of them resemble in character
and geological deposition those of
Butte. Mont. The mines at Bor. not.
ably the one known as Cukadulkan,
are especially rich. Ores taken from
this mine are 6 per cent copper, which
reiines into yu.o per cent copper, and
gives per ton twenty-four to thirty
grammes gold and ninety-six to 120
grammes silver. Invested is a capital
of 5,500,000 francs. In the year 1912-13
tne production of ore was 7.600 tons.
Iron also is found in Serbia, espe
cially in the northeastern parts of the
country. The lack of coal and coke
has in the past prevented the develop
ment of the iron and steel industry,
the small output of iron ores having
been transported on the Danube to
points in Austria-Hungary.
Moving Pictures
Placed in Scotch
Public Houses
London. July 15. "Movie" thea.
ters in saloons are one of the inno
vations made by the government
liquor ooard. in its experiment in dv
rect management of saloons in the
south of Scotland and the north of
England, where there are large muni
tion making areas. Heavy drinking
has necessitated the step.. By remod
eling and rebuilding these saloons the
government nopes to increase the
comfort of the workers.
The picture palaces underl the
same roof as the saloons are so ar
ranged thai the men who formerlv
frequented the saloons in search of
amusement, will be able to take their
wives, and whether they desire to
have drinks or not. matters little. The
man who does not approve of saloons
can find a part set aside, for the con
sumption of tea, coffee and other s
drinks. The theater will also .
used for concerts and lectures.
The experiment is being watched
critically, not by the liquor trade, but
by temperance workers and prohibi
tionists. In Edinburgh, for instance,
it has been noticed that the saloons
in the experimental area had doubled
their receipts since private control
and management had been displaced
by the government board, and tne
local religious leaders are contending
that the more model and club-like
a drinking shop is made the more
drink it will sell. Another criticism
made by the reform element is that as
the new model houses are understood
to be exemplary they are not under
the same strict police supervision as
the ordinary saloons.

One of the important departments
of the work of the Society of the
