Out of this he paid his bill and then placed the 73 in an inside pocket. On reaching North Platte he made another purchase, and putting his hand in his pocket for his money he found that it was gone. This left him in great want, as it was all the money he had, and he has a wife and three small children to care for. After reaching Sterling a subscription was taken up for his relief, and the sum of 15.75 was obtained. Mr. Rcet7. is very grateful for this assistance. Kimball. From the Observer. The land agent waxeth rich in the almighity dollar outhere. How would you like to wear the show of the man who made a 30,000 land sale tins week and received five per cent, commission? S. J. Shirley, the Sidney and Bushnell land man, was in the city yesterday He was accompanied by a couple of gentlmen from Keokuk, Iowa, wliowill make a purchase of over 5,000 of railroad laud in western Cheyenne county. Twenty-five people alighted at the station from the west bound passenger train Wednesday. There were among the number commercial men, a prospective druggist, five ladies, and a large dose of land seekers. Verily, Kimball do boom. A petition was being circulated Tuesday morning asking the Union Pacific railwiiy company to enlarge its depot, or at ledt to make some sort of arrangement to re ceive., and ..houefidjjher.own in Cheyenne county exctot Sidney receives half as much freight and express as Kimball. The present capacity of our freight house is entirely (inadequate to the requirements. Oftentimes perishable freight nnt remain out in the wind and weather. Agent Smith does his best to tak care of the stuff, but he can't load ten tons of goods into a five ton house. Sidney. From the Telegraph. John McShane and Wm. Paxton have the contract for supplying Pine Ridge, Rosebud, Cheyenne and Brule Indian airencies with cattle during the next fiscal year. The Indians at these four agencies eat about 20,000 beeves each year. There were CS votes cast for and 13 against the proposition to issue $12,000 in school bonds to build a new school house. The proposition having received more than two thirds of the vote cast has been declared carried and as soon as bonds are approved by the State auditor the school board will take active step towards com mencing work. Thirty-seven votes were cast in favor of the Paine block and nine for the Mcintosh block. G. R. Whitney, a passenger traveling on a through emigrant ticket from San Francisco to Oswego, N. Y.. became possessed of an hallucination that parties on the train he was riding on intended to rob and kill him and got off of No. 2 Tuesday while at Sidney, leaving his valise and other property in the car and starting across the praiJ&sputh of town on foot.

The remains of a man who had evidently been dead several moutlw were found recently eleven miles north of Chappell. Coroner Patterson was notified, and went j to Chappell Thursday and.with the follow I ing jurors reprired to the spot and held an inquest: J. F. Wellington, Ira Brash ears. Gen. 1). Williams. II. Rice. W. II. McEldowny and John Slattefy. A pass port showing the man to be Louis Flory, a native of Berne, Switzerland, born in 1824 and naturalization papers issued at New Philadelphia, ()., June 4th 18G2, together with seven five dollar gold pieces were j the only articles found on his person. 1 There were uo signs of foul play and no one at Chappell knew anything about Flory. The jury returned a verdict of death from causes unknown. The body was interred yesterday at Chappell. Calloway, is the name of a new town platted last week in Custer count'. The site is what has been known as Delight postoflice, about twenty miles east of Arnold. Knowing ones say that Calloway is to be the terminus of a branch of the Union Pacific, that is it will be the terminus for a year, but the road will then be extended west to a poiut not yet definitely established. Gothenburg Independent. We understand tracklaylng on the X. & C. R. R. began at Elwood, on Thursday, May 13th. If this be true Eustis will soon have the cars from the east but we predict the line will not be finished to Curtis earlier that November 1st, owing to the heavy grades west of Farnam, and on Medicine creek. Stockville Faber. The streets of our embryo city have been named as follows: The present business street is called Centre; east of Centre is Howard avenue, and oast or that is Custer avenue. West of Centre is Pope avenue, and west or that is Ord avenue. The extreme southern street running east and west is North Raih a street, and the rest follow in successive numbers from First to Seventh. Curtis Xacs. The mislocatiou of so many settlers around Kingston,' lias been proven to be a fact by the County Surveyor from D( nver. lie found the government corners where the locaters said there was i none to be found. There oucht to be some law restricting the locating business to persons who understand surveying. The fact that hundreds nre shown land for theirs when the locater don't know within 24 miles of where ft is himself, is enough to show that every clod-hopper who sticks himself up for a surveyor is not one at all. People should beware and locate with parties who understand their business. Heed this advice. Dundy county Pioneer. Some immigrants from Iowa camped in Stockville last Tuesday night and an old gentleman, who seemed to be the head of of the party, stated to our people that about forty miles east of here they camped near a party of engineers who were hunt ing up a route nver which to build the Rock Island road and that about eighty miles east they had parsed a similiar party. Both parties were surveying in this direction. The work of the R. I. folks is done quietly and the people of tho towns along'the line hardly know of their presence in the county until they actually arrive. Fuher. The statement made by certain people who never tilled the land for a livelihood but were employed in the stock business that it never rains in this part of the State are not verified upon close questioning or by the reports of the wrather bureaus. Some people seem to think that a heavy rain is necessary at least once a week in order that crops will grow. Such is not the case, as any farmer in any country where the soil is porus will testif3'. Three good sea6'nable rain-- is all that is needful ; in fact more would be a damage for the reason that too much rain causes the weed to grow that waste the substance of the soil and choke out the crop. Besides many seasons the rain prevents the farmer from work that is necessary, such as making improvements. Rainy weather is what the hired men who work for farmers generally pray for and is the only prayer some of them ever utter. Ogallala JVrirx. We have exploded the hallucination about no water, all sand hills and a God forsaken country in general, and are now receiving our reward by seeing immigra tion How into our county; for the past month there has not been a day but what we could count from one to ten immi grant wagons in town, and it is a fact that nine out of ten that comes here looking for land locates in this county. The Cody lake country is now receiving the most attention, and with the large tract of land just discovered by J. W McSay added to that already known, will be an additional inducement for settlers to visit this section of Nebraska. This fine couutryis all rich valley land and about ten miles from Gandy, the county seat of Logan county, and the road to it is through a combination of valleys. Gandy Pioneer. In time the B. & M. railroad will have a great through linf in this county from Nemaha on the Missouri. The road is now completed to Tobias, a distance of 103 j miles. From Tobias to Holdredge the contract h:is been let for 115 miles. From Holdredge to Elwood 23 miles are in operation atid from Elwood the contract is let to Curtis, in Frontier county, a distance of 30 miles making a total of 270 miles all of which will be in operation before the close of the year. Next year the road will be extended twenty miles into Lincoln comity, which is as far as the road has been located. From Lincoln county on a preliminery survey has been run through towns 0 in Keith count' to Akron in Weld county. The engineers have received instructions to run another survey for this line further north, estab lishing better grades and reaching nearer the center of the south half of the county. When the more pressing extensions, caused by the rivalry of the Union Pacific, Rock Island and Northwestern are completed the Keith county branch will be pushed through on one of the surveys, but this will not be for two or three years at least. Settlers on the Chase county line who expect the cars to haul in their coal and haul out their graiu this year will be disappointed. Keith Co. Xetrx. Another plume in the cap of Denver Junction is the completion of the new bridge spanning the Platte river. The work was accomplished and the first team crossed on Thursday afternoon. All interested in the growth and advancement of our town will be gratified to learn that the greatest obsticle in the advancement of all our interests is now removed. No other town in states or territories can record so rapid developments as Denver Junction. The recent rains have estab lished the fact that this couu'ry cau produce the finest corn, plumpest and largest potatoes of any eastern loam. Denver Junction Gmeite. Several herds of buffalo have ln-en seen within a few miles of town recently. One bunch was seen by a sheep herder near Rosenkran's ranch, another made its appearance about ten miles west of town, and several have been run onto in the sand hills northwest of here. Last Satur day Charles and Frank Moore discovered a herd of over forty about twenty-five miles northwest. They succeeded in capturing four calves, which are alive and doing well at the Moere's ranch on Buffalo Creek. Ilaigler Reporter Work ou the G. I. & W. C. railroad is progressing very favorably. The locomo tive has reached the South Loup about 27 miles this side of Graud Island and the tracklayers will soon be moving up the Beaver making a forced march to Broken Bow. The company promised to run a train into this place on the first of July and present prospect point to their mak ing the promise good. Broken Bow Stutcmhir. Mr. D. C. Bond, agent for the U. P. Railway at Elm Creek, Nebraska, resigned June 1st the position he had for seventeen yean filled with satisfaction to the com pany and its patrons. He has watched with a careful eye his charge, and he cau look back with satisfaction on his record, lie has built a block of stores at Elm Creek, and will soon add others. He was also elected vice president of the Elm Creek Banking company Ex. Tin; bridge across the Medicine just south of R. A. MeKulghts' has been completed and accepted by the commis sioners. Curtis Record. MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS. A young colored man and a white girl, both of Hastings applied for a licence to wed at Lincoln, last Monday, but were refused, as the laws of Nebraska do not permit miscegenation. They were about to proceed to Council Bluffs when the authorities were telegraphed to arrest them. The giris parents live in Sutton, and she was sent to them, while her dusky lover is held to answer the charge, of seduction. President Cleveland has taken a new mistress for the White House, with whom the world fiuds no fault. But it neverthe less takes note of the fact that no lady has presided with more becoming and quiet dignitv over that responsible post of duty than the little, quiet sister. Rose Elizabeth May she win the best and most loyal man in all this land and have a house of her own. The days of the grasshopper, the potato bug, the cotton worm, and the weevil draw near, and bulls and bears breathless ly listening for the hum of wings and sounds of cheering. These little insignifi cant workers have made and unmade many a man's fortune. As a rule when thev are reported as destroying everything we are pretty certain to have a good crop. Possibly Kansas City will not crow so loud about her "million-dollar-courthouse" when it is found to require "another million to finish it," and a couple of hundred thousands to correct blunders and make it inhabitable and safe. Look at Albany, New York, for instance, on her - nineteenth million dollars, and not near done. The use of tobacco, in all its forms, appears to be fearfully on the increase in Chicago as well as elsewhere. The percentage of the increase of the sale has been larger than that of an' other business during the past five years. According to the Tribune, a revenue officer has made the statement that there are 9,000 places in the city, including saloons, drug stores and retail groceries, where the weed and its numerous adulter ations are sold. The estimate is made that 100,000 people indulge in the use of tobacco and that they consumes $50,000 worth daily, or $15,250,000 annually. Tho estimate of $50,000 a day, or fifty cents a piece for the 100,000 consumers, is doubtless an exaggeration; but allowing a reduction of one-half, we have over $!),000, 000. With this large expenditure added to that for whiskey and beer, it is no wonder that there are hard times among such large numbers, so many tramps aud beggars, atid such repeated calls for charity. Much of the money thus given goes to support the saloons and tobacco shops, or to replace that which is expended in them .instead of going to thesupport of families. Ex. The New Philadelphia directory con tains 03 Ash, 4 Elms, 5 Walnuts, 11 Pines. 15 Cherrys, 13 Oaks, a single Poplar, 4 Chestnuts, and a single Spruce. The Fifth Avenue Hotel, New York city, rents for $185,000 a year. The lessees get back about $GO,000 of this from store keepers who have leases on the premises. "A genuine patriot," said an election orator, recently, "must at all times be ready to die for his country, evon if it should cost him his life." (Thundering applause.

It having beon reported that he had alluded to Lord Salisbury in harsh terms, although hi printed remarks show to the contrary, ha makes a formal statement of -what he said and what it meant. This was needlwtt. Nobody on this side of the water cnrd whether he had abused Salisbury or not. In fact, we all recognize that Salisbury is more or less an enemy of Ireland, of liberty and of the human race. H belongs to an insolent, brutal and accidental clasthat must shortly go. Mr. Blaine better have let the common version of his language stand, even if it wa somewhat misunderstood Lincoln Jour nal. Colonel David B. Sickels, formerly tho representative of the United States to Siara, has lately received from Bangkok a personal letter which says: "His Majesty is so well pleased with the results of the system of public education for males which wa3 established u few years ago at your suggestion that he has decided to establish a school in this city for the instruction of the native women, aud it Is probable that a prominent missionary lady will be placed at the head of the institu tion." It turns out that the Bee' a charges against Auditor Babcock were nonsense. Mr. Rosewater is, unfortunately, so con stituted that the merest rumor against any man who is not his tool is accepted by him as gospel truth. There was a time when we considered this trait of the editor of the Bee as reprehensible; we now consider it something upon which he is to be corn missrated. He can't help it. Omaha Republican. In his first message to Congress Presi dent Cleveland said: "The fathers of our families are the best citizens of tho Republic. Wife and children are tho. sources of patriotism, and conjugal and parental affection beget devotion to tho country." Mr. B. P. Tro-.vbridgp will in July sail for Europe to supervise the erection of the new building of the American School of Archaeology at Anthcns. He is a sorr of Professor W. 1 Trowbridge, of Now Haven, and was graiuated at Trinity College three years ago. The East River bridge "is threeyears old, and forty-five millious of persons have passed between New York and Brooklyn by this great highway, and the receipts last week nearly fifteen thousand were the largest that have been taken. Priuce Jerome Napoleou will soon go to the United States. The ostensible object of his trip to America is said to bo to meet his son, who is returning by way of San Francisco and New York from a trip around the world. Since the inception of the little un pleasautuess between the Uuited Statc3 and Canada concerning the fisheries, we observe that 14,000 cans of Cauadian lobsters have been seized in New York on the ground that they were probably. dangerous to the consumer. As the health of the consumer has withstood a great manv thousand cans of these marine products every summer heretofore, the seizure at this juncture appears to be a little gauzy. This country can't afford to play the sneak. Let the government find out what we ought to havo in tho fishery matter and then have it, with no underhand nonsense. Lincoln Journal. Eugene Field isond of printing funny things about people in the Chicago Daily Xetcs. We wonder if he will reproduce the following, which comes on good authority: Field was present in market square on tne nignt tnc bombs were throwu, and at the first explosion joined tho scattering crowd and fled. He whs knocked down aud trampled on, and as soon as he recovered his feet he made a frantic rush for the Desplaina street station, into which he bounced cryinf. "I'm shot, I'm shot." "Oh, no," said tho officer, "you don't look as though 'ou were shot." "Yes, I am," he insisted. "I'm shot in the back, and my pants are saturated with blocd." The officer examined.and sure enough, his clothes were really wet. Still further investiga tion showed, however, that it was not blood, but tho contents of a pint bottle which he carried iu his rear pocket, and had broken when he (ell. He ii said to be very glad that it was no worse. Exchange. The Philadelphia Pre is authoritt- for the statement that iu a cyclone in Ohio "the boundary lines of several townships were bent all out of shape." The torando referred to is said to have occurred at a place called Codorus. Tho Philadelphia Pr, for a newspaper of its age, is virile and audacious. A Nebraska poatmastor was accused of being "roaring drunk." He admitted being on two occasions in the State referred to. One was the time of Grorer Cleveland's election, the other was when tho Republican postmaster wa3 turned out and he wa3 put iu. The. Kaunas City Time believes "if there ever waa au excuse for a roaring druuk" tho Nebraska postmaster should be considered justified. A Request.
