groceries and took out his nYmey, eighty
dollars in bills, from which he kept out a
five dollar bill. 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.

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.

John McShane and Wm. Paxton have
the contract for supplying Pine Ridge,
Rosebud, Cheyenne and Brule Indian
airencies with cattle during the next

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.

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.

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

June 1st the position he had for seventeen
yean filled with satisfaction to the com

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.

Mr. Blaine has not lost his unhappy
habit of explanation. 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

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
