F. V. Stevens or the County
Forestry Association, is spending
two .weeks scouting for the chestnut
tree disease, "Dlnporthe Parasitica,"
through the mountain:! of this sec
tion. This disease lias proved very
disastrous to the chestnut trees
throughout New York, New Jersey,
Commonwealths of Pennsylvania
and Delaware and seems to be spread
ing all through the Eastern States
entirely killing all chestnut trees
through the affected area. The U.
S. Forest Service and the State Ex
periment stations throughout the
country are doing all in their pow
er to eradicate this pest which
threatens to destroy the entire sup
ply of chestnut timber, but as yet no
way has been discovered of check
ing it as it is a narasitic funeiiH
which attacks the coenbium, the !
spores of the fungus entering through
wounds, dead twigs, and perhaps in
other ways, being under the bark it
is impossible to treat it in any way.

How a man may get rich on a
farm of 20 ocres has recently been
shown at the fair of the Missouri
Valley Agricultural and Horticultur
al society at Kansas City, Neb, Ar
nold Martin, owner of a 20-acro
farm In Pawnee county, Nebraska,
has an exhibit at the fair and in his
lectures, which ho gives every day,
tells how he makes upward of $1,
000 a year profit off his land. Mr.
Martin has been so successful with
Intensive farming that the depart
ment): of agricultural sent a man to
see his farm and Issued a "farmers'
bulletin" about It.
Among the things grown on the
Martin farm are corn stalks 17
feet high, with the ears 11 feet from
the ground. There was one ear of
corn raised on his place which took
first prize at the state fair this year
in Lincoln, Neb. After the fair the
managers of It auctioned off all the
prize-winning exhibits and Martin
bought back his own prize ear of
corn for J30. It has 24 rows of
corn and 1,100 grains on it.
Ten years ago Martin came from
Switzerland and worked on a farm
In Northwestern Kansas. At the
end of three years he had saved ?275.
In Pawnee county he found a tract
of 20 acres that no one would farm.
It was rough land and covered with
brush and small trees. Land all
around it was selling for ?50 and
70 an acre. He bought the 20 acres
for $12.50 an acre and paid $100
The farmers' bulletin says about
Martin: "His neighbors used to laugh
at the young farmer and nicknamed
him 'Hazelbrush,' but now they say
'he Is making more money on 20
acres than we do on 160 He does
not want any more land, but wants
to farm what he has better. In
speaking of the size of farms he says
'people of moderate means should
not farm too much land. A man
can start on 20 acres; 40 acres will
do; 80 acres Is enough; 160 an
abundance; 320 -a misfortune, and
640 a calamity.' "
Martin now has his farm all paid
for and docs not owe a dollar. He
has a neat house, a barn with a stone
basement for stock and the upper
part for hay and grain. He has
money In the bank and has been of
fered $2,5.00 cash for his farm. He
has made three pleasant trips to
Colorado and spent three months
last winter In Switzerland.
A small field of nearly two acres
Is kept for annual crops. The slopes
are rocky In places and the soli Is
a residual, clay loam, having been
formed mostly by the weathering of
the limestone which underlies it.
About eight acres of this Is set to
orchards, one acre in alfalfa, one In
timothy and clover, three in pasture
and a little In annual crops.

BELIEVES DR. COOK'S STORY.
Antarctic Explorer Degcrlacho IIo-
Ilovos Ho Reached Polo Ahead
Another scientist joined the ranks
of the Dr. Cook adherents last week
when Captain Degerlache, leader of
the Belgian Antarctic expedition, ar
rived at Copenhagen. Captain De
gerlache commanded the expedition
for the Belgian government which
Dr. Cook accompanied as surgeon.
The Captain declared that Dr. Cook
Is among the ablest of Polar scien
tists, and that ne believes implicitly
In the Doctor's claim that he reach
ed the Pole.
Degerlache says he Is completely
mystified as to why anyone who is
acquainted with the American ex
plorer should be at all sceptical
about his claim. He asserts that Dr.
Cook carried instruments of the best
and that he could have had no diffi
culty, or made no mistake in locating
the Pole. v
Captain Degerlache says he be
lieves Peary also reached the Pole,
but some time later than Dr. Cook:
