G. 11. Whitney, a passenger traveling on
a through emigrant ticket from San
Franckco 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 oft of No. 2

valise and other property in the car and
starting across the prairie south of town
on foot. Sheriff Eubank: overtook him
and brouglit Jiim bach, jlle remained at
the Metropolitan hotel 'overnight and
continued on his journey Wednesday. On
every other subject but the one of robbers
being on the train he was perfectly sane.
The remains of a man who had evidently

Calloway, .is the name of a new town
platted last week in Currier county. The
site is what has been known as Delight
postoffiee, about twenty miles east of
Arnold. Knowing ones iay 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 Ihe road will then
be extended west to a point not yet
definitely established. Gothenburg Inde
iorus will testify. Three.
good seasonable rains is all that is needful ,
in fact more would be a damage for the
reason that too much rain causes the
weeds 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 Xetcs.
We have exploded the hallucination
about no water, nil 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
mouth there has not been a day but what
we could count from one to ten immi
grant vagons 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 uow 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 line country is 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 line in this count- from
Nemaha on the Missouri. The road is
now completed to Tobias, a distance of 103
miles. From Tobias to Holdredge the
contract has been let for 115 miles. From
Holdredge to El wood 28 miles are in
operation and from El wood the contract
is let to Curtis, in Frontier county, a
distance of 30 miles making a total of 276
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 county, which is as far as the
road has been located. From Lincoln
county on a preliininery survey has been
run through towns 9 in Keith county to
Akron in Weld county. The engineers
have received instructions to run another
survoy 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. Settlrs on the Clia.se county line
who expect the cars to haul in their coal
and haul out their grain this year will be
disappointed. Keith Co. Xetrs.
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 firt 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

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

many a man's fortune. As a rule when
they are reported as destroying everything
we are pretty certain to have a good crop.
Possibly Kansas City will not crow so
loud about her "raillion-dollar-court-house"
when it is found to require
"another million to finish it,'' and a couple
of hundred thousand; to correct blunders
and make it inhabitable and safe. Look
at Albany, New York, -for instance, on
her nineteenth million dollars, and not
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 any other
business during the past five years.
Accordiug to the Tribune, a revenue
officer has made the statement that there
are 0,000 places ;n the city, including
saloons, drug stores and retail groceries,
where the weed and its numerous adulter
ations are sold. The estimate is made
that .00,000 people indulge in the use of
tobacco and that they consume $50,000
worth daily, or 15.250,000 annually. The
estimate of 50,000 a day, or fifty cents a
piece tor the luu.uuu consumers, is
doubtless an exaggeration ; but allowing a
reduction of one-half, we have over 9,000,-
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 and
beggars, and 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 the support of

Since the inception of the little un
pleasantness between the United States
and Canada concerning the fisheries, wa
observe that 14,000 cans of Canadian
lobsters have been seized in New York On
the ground that they were probably
dangerous to the consumer. As tho health
of the consumer has withstood a great
mauv 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 have in the
fishery matter and then have it, with no
underhand nonsense. Lincoln Journal.
Eugene Field is fond of printing funny
things about people in the Chicago Daily .
Xctcs. We wonder if he will reproduce "
the following, which comes on good
authority: Field "was present in market

the scattering crowd and lied. He was
knocked down and trampled on, and ns
soon as he recovered his feet he made a
frantic rush for tho Desplains street
station, into which he bounced 'crying,
"I'm shot, I'm shot." "Oh. no," .said the
officer, "you don't look as though you
were shot." "Yes, I am," he insisted.
"I'm shot in the back, and my pante are
saturated with blofd." The officer
examined, nnd sure enough, his clothes
were really wet. Still further investiga
tion showed, however, that it was not
blood, but the contents of a pint bottle
which he carried in his rear pocket;
and had broken when he fell. He is
said to be very glad that it was no worse.
