Finest Babies in Nebraska,
Judges at the Fair Said So
(From a Staff Correspondent)
Lincoln, Sept. 7. (Special.) The grand champion in the better baby
contest this year at the state fair is a girl and she comes from Eagle, Neb.
Therefore, it is perfectly right that the motto of the babies should be "Let
the Eagle Scream.
The prizes were awarded at the auditorium at 10 o'clock this morning
by Chief Justice Andrew M. Morrissey, acting as dispenser of ribbons. Gov
ernor Neville had been selected to make the presentations, but because of
the war complications he did not leel able to take on greater responsibilities
and turned over the job to the chief justice, who is a great judge of babies
and more competent to officiate in that capacity because he is a bachelor and
has none of his own, while the governor hat three. .''.'

tne crop reporting board said:
Iht great corn crop of three and
a quarter billions of bushels promised
on September 1, which is 153,000,000
bushels above any previous year, will
be realized fully m the form of sound
corn only provided frost holds off un
usually late. A good big crop of
sound corn is promised if killing frost
in the main belt does not come ear

"The oats crop for 1917, promised
and largely realized on September 1,
is 1,553,000,000 bushels, within 6,000,
000 bushels of the greatest previous
crop. Conditions are reported 10 per
cent above normal in Iowa and Mis
souri. In North Dakota, however, the
crop promis.es only two-fifths, and in
Montana less than half of a normal
yield, while it is less than two-thirds
in Washington and Oregon.
"The spring wheat report on Sep
tember 1 promises 250,000,000 bushels.

other towns, and they were enter

escorted to the train by a number of

A veritable cloudburst visited Beat

fell in torrents for several hours,
flooding the streets and the lowlands.
The storm was accompanied by vivid
lightning and heavy thunder. The
ground is thoroughly soaked and is
now in fine condition for the seeding
