As the season approaches for prairie

While it may be true that ground burnt
over in the fall will produce greener and

true that the heat and fire have a damag

transient benefit derived from the efEect

Five hundred indians on leave of

loitering over the country on the north

were R?d Cloud's band of Sioux. Two

were sent for by the U". S. authorities at
the agency. The settlers along Blue

would do them injury and congregated at

Mr. "Wm, Bampton, accompanied by
his father left here yesterday for their
home near Boston, Mass. It will be
remembered that on the Sth of July Mr.
Hampton received severe injuries from
the bursting of a gun, which resulted in
three radiating fractures of the skull with
depressions of the bone into the brain.
"When consciousness returned it was
found that all power of speech and
swallowing was lost. Dr. Birney, of
Tabor was called aud proceeded at once
to perform the operation of trephaning
the skull and raising the broken and
depressed bone from off tiie brain, with
the result of an i.nmediate return to con
sciousness and partial relief in swallowing.
The case looking desperate, Dr. Birney
sent for Dr. Field, of Sidney, forconsulta
tion. Mr. Bampton arrived here from
Boston on Sunday, July 18th, since which
time he has nursed his son as only a
father can do. Dr. Birney, who had
charge of the case from the beginning,
and to whose skill the putient owes his
life, brought him to Sidney and called in
Drs. E'.yt-n and Fiold for consultation.
It wa agreed to send him home for
further treatment. The powers of speech
and swallowing have quite returned and
we congratulate not only the patient but
Dr. Birney on the case, which at one time
looked too serious for recovery. Sidney

years ago no white man had ever beforo
lived; here, where there was ono vast
waving meadow of Inch srass. which
from the bluffs looked like a deep green
sea ; when no house or tree could be seen
to break the wild expanse, inhabited only
by the wild bulTalo, elk, deer, antelope
and wolf; where then 4,000 Indians
roamed, chased their game and met in
battle their ancient savago foes. Here,
where the red man and warpainted savago
knew no master, had ono of tho threo

company to locate this city. Here, where
the one to whom this proposition was
made was the first to come upon tho loca
tion pointed out to him by the other, and
befofe these two could get their outfit
from Omaha, the third man of tho three
was upon the ground. These three, who
drove the first stake and made the first

the prettiest city in Nebraska, aro still

the Irish people we of the United States
completely fail to understand the feelings
which prompt the adoption of such a pol

tred and English brutality, has been used

the English coercive policy for twenty
years longer. But public sentiment in

that policy and it must soon'be done away
