SOON TO THE FRONT
State Officials Make Effort to
Send Entire Brigade to
Front at an Early
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, June 21. (Special.) Or
ders were received today that the new
Sixth regiment would be ' mustered
into the federal service immediately
and equipped for foreign invasion.
The men must line up within a
very short time and with the end in
jtew of hustling matters Governor
Neville, through Adjutant General
Hall, issued the following message
which was sent out to all towns where
efforts are being made to enlist men
for the new regiment:
"Information received from War
department that Sixth regiment will
be recognized providing it is ready for
rnusitre in the very near future, pos
sibly rive days. Wire this date if you
can raise 100 to 150 men between the
ages of 18 and 45-, physically sound as
far as you .can determine, and officers
will be immediately ordered to inspect
and muster in your organization this
week. If you cannot raise 100 men,
wire approximate number you can
have ready. This regiment, if or
ganized in ime, will be drafted for
foreign service with the Fifth and
Sixth Nebraska infantry, July 15. Ex
pedite, no time to lose."
.. Forty Towns Compete.
Over forty towns have put in appli
cation to raise a company of Guards.
I'jobably some of these will not be
able to get a full company, but it is
hoped that more than enough men will
be found in all of them to fill the
quota required for the three -regi
tncnts and thus a brigade can be
It will b: not only a .great thing

All Work Together.
"It can be done easily." said Gen
eral Hall t.ns morning, "if the people
of Nebraska will only realize what it
means to have the Nebraska boys a
together. I want to see everybody
get busy and push for 1 brigade. The
order issued today should put every
man on Ins tiptoes and make mm rea

Past Week Favorable for
Vegetation and Farm Work
Lincoln, Neb., June 21. Summary
of weather and crop conditions in Ne
braska for week ending June 19, 1917,
says: The last week was favorable for
all vegetation and farm work pro
gressed without interruption. The
temperature averaged about 5 degrees
Showers occurred on Tuesday and
Friday, but the rainfall was light, the
total for the week being generally
less than a quarter inch. In some
eastern counties the total was slightly
more than a halt inch, while some
central stations report noam during
the week. Kain is now needed m
The condition of corn has improved
somewhat. Cultivation progressed
nicely in the greater portion of the
state and fields are free of weeds. In
some western counties early corn is
yellow, bin the late planted has good
color. Cut worms did a little dam

tne nrst crop ot aitalta was cut
quite generally and is in fair condi
tion. Wheat, oats, rye and barley are
doing well. Potatoes continue in
good condition, although there are a
few reports of blight in some south
eastern counties. Pastures and gar
den truck are good.
Wife Beater at Broken
Bow is Sent to Jail
Broken Bow, Neb., June 21. (Spe
cial Telegram.) Frincis Crumb, a
farmer living in the. southwest part
of the county, was arrested by Sheriff
Wilson on charge ot heating his wife
and stepdaughter. He is alleged to
have used a hammer and milk stool
on his wife and, a tug strap on the 12-
ear-old girl. Lrtib pleaded guilty to
day before Judge Ford and was sen
tenced to three months in jail, the
limit. The court remarked that he
pvas only sorry the sentence could not
be six vears.
The cement plant which has oper
ated at Superior for some years has
been sold to an eastern cement con
cern. Some time ago -holders of
the bonds of the Superior firm
bought the plant at a receiver's sale.
The plant is in Nebraska, but the
quarries are largely in Kansas. This
made it necessary for the action to
be handled through separate courts in
the respective states. The-bondhold-crs
bought the Kansas property eight
months ago. They then reorganized
and operated for a time, and now
comes the report tha. they have sold
to a large eastern concern, which, it
is said, virtually throws this promis
ing little Nebraska plant into the
hands of the big cement trust.
The acquisition of this western
plant by the big eastern concerns is
looked upon by big users of cement
as only one more step toward the
complete, control-.of the cement busi
ness of America byNjie trust. Cement
users say cement already is ridicu
lously high, and that the buying un
of small plants is a part of the plan
of the big concerns to get complete
control and squeeze on still heavier

the western cement men that these

Aged Laurel Man Hurt
In an Unusual Accident
Laurel, Neb., June 2h (Special.)
Chris Weseloh, a farmer four miles
from Laurel, met with an accident
yesterday afternoon that may cost
him his life. He led a team in from
the field after dinner and was water
ing them. Being weary, he sat upon
the pipe that conducts the water to
the trough. In some way the horses
managed to get a halter strap under
the pipr and in jerking their heads
dislodged it, throwing Mr. Weseloh,
who is 70 years old, several feet into
the air. The fall broke his right hip.
Mrs. Weseloh was in the house rest
ing and did not hear his calls for
help. After lying there about ail hour
he managed to crawl to the house. He
was taken to a Sioux City hospital.
