On a farm near Albert Lea, Minn., a

that were swimming about as though in

them in idleness. No statistics are at

American flour is becoming a leading
factor in European imports. Our people
can make money by converting wheat
into flour and save money by reducing
the cost of transportation. The exporta
tion of raw material is a business of small
profits, only adapted to a country where
land is plentiful and cheap and population
thin. We are growing out of those con
ditions and must modify our business!

In every walk of life work is a power
ful antidote for low spirits. The busy have
no time to be sad. The saving, "Labor is
prayer." is never truer than when applied
to the grief stricken ; and to those whose
woes are more fancied than real, but none
the less productive of discomfort on that
account, toil will afford a speedier and
surer relief than any other remedy ever
devised by man. Try hard work then,
bodily or mental, or both, as the best cure
far a fit of the "blues."
The freezing up of the pump is a great
annoyance to those having one on their
premises. Some expert says that when
a pump tube freezes solid, do not pour in
hot water in the common way with the
hope of thawinjr. The hot water will
stav at the top, and that will be the end
of it. Procure a lead tube, or any other
kind of pipe, place the lower end of it
directly on the ice iu the pump, with a
funnel pour hot water in at the top. The
weight of the water in the pips will drive
it hot against the ice, the pipe settling as
fast as the ice melts, and the whole will
be cleaned out in an increditable short
A peculiar state of affairs exists in the
school at East Haven near White Haven,
Penna. Miss Caffrey was appointed
teacher in September last, but the people
of the district objected to the change, as
the present teacher was very popular.
"Since thtn they have refused to send
their children to school. For three moths
past Miss Caffray has kept the school
open, but had no pupils. During the last
month one boy, 4 years of age, has attend
ed, and now complaint is made to the
directors that the boy is under age and
demand his removul . Miss Caffray draws
her salarj regularly every month."
Nothing seems too base and heartless

The statement is made seemingly on good
authority, that Mr. O'Brien is to be
arrested again in spite of the feeble con
dition of his health and his apparent
inability to undprgo another term of im
prisonment. This is sheer cruelty. It is
not believed that Mr. Balfour is sustained
.by public sentiment in England. If he
carries out this plan it wjll certainly go
far to confirm belief in the report that he
declared not long ago his fiendish pur
pose to crush the Home Rule movement
by imprisoning the leaders and killing,
them off by inhuman treatment in jail.
The total wheat crop of the world is
about 2,000,0000,000 bushels, and at least
1,500,000,000 bushels are consumed in the
countries in which it is grown, leaving
a balance of 500,000,000 to supply countries
growing no wheat or growing less than
they consume. Speculation deals only
with this balance that jmes into general
trade, and the speculators of the world in
a single year will sell or transfer in their
peculiar way forty or fifty times 500,000,
000 bushels of wheat. In New York a
single day sometimes witnesses a sale or
transfer of 30,000,000 bushels of wheat.
The damage done by speculation consists
in lowering the price of the whole
amouut of actual wheat by this enormous
inflatation of "paper wheat," not one
bushel in a thousand of which is ever
The hobby of Prof. L. E. Hicks, is ir
rigation in Nebraska, and he hss just pub
lished a treaties on the subject which con
tains many valuable susgestionsas to how
the high dry table lands may, by irriga
tion be made to nearly double their yield
by a very slight outlay. One of his sug
gestions is to tap the Platte river at
Kearney, and cam' the water through a
ditch over the high iands of Kearney,
Adams, Clav York aud other counties
south and east. Of course, this plan pre
supposes an unlimited supply ef water in
the Platte, which as a matter of fact is
not the case, and if sucli a ditch was con
structed, it would sometime be found that
during the dryest season, when crops
were needing water most, the river bed
at Kearney would be as dry as a boue
yarg. This has occurred several times
within the knowledge of the writer.
Let us go to California and be happy.
There is a boom there, and everybody is
rapidly achieving wealth. People buy a
lot one day for 200 and sell it the next
day for 2,000. There is no reason why
we should not charter all the passenger
coaches in the west and emigrate. Los
Angeles is one of the towns blessed with
a boom, and the News-Item of that place
furnishes some very interesting and
attractive facts concerning the luxury of
living there. Coal is worth 20 per ton
and wood 18 per cord. Potatoes sell at
the rate of three cents a pound, and
groceries are so high that none but real
estate agents can afford them. The News
Item frankly predicts that the boom will
.soon throw up its hands as a result of
wild speculation with nothing to back it.
The boom out there is doubtless a nice
thing to have around. It is attracting
people from all parts of the country who
go to California to get rich by means of
buying and selling pieces of the desert as
they rushed there forty years ago to wear
out their lives hunting wealth in the gold
mines. For every man who strikes it
rich and rides back to the east in a special
car, thirty will start for home on foot and
to all business entrusted to its care. lnwre

live on turnips and sleep in hay stacks by"

Nebraska should remember the sugges
tive old parable about the two gentle
men of ancient times, one of whom built
his residence on a rock, while the other
erected an imposing structure on the
sand. The latter was swept away, but
the former is probably standing yet Ne
braska's prosperity is founded on the
rock, so to speak, and that of California
upon the sands shifting, uncertain sands.

The examination of the steel cruiser
Atlanta in the Brooklyn dry dock shows
that though when she ran ashore in Nar
raganset Bay she struck the rocks with
tremendous force, it only bent the plates
and damaged the propeller. Not a single
rivet was started. This crucial test of the
Atlanta's strength speaks a great deal bet
ter for poor, dead John Roach, who built
her, than Secretary Whitney, who tried
very hard to condemn her.
The papers that use plates labor under
serious disadvantages is evidenced by the
fact that about 1,200 of them are now
publishing a story entitled "The Breton
Mills," treating of the horrible condition
of those people who work in woolen
mills, and similar factories, which is too
absurd to merit criticism. Each succeed
ing chapter of the narrative displays a
more profound ignorance of the subject -than
the one before it, and the whole
business reeks with maudlin sentim'mt
alism to a sickening degree. The editor
who is obliged to fill his paper with plates
is worthy of commiseration. Topics.
The Chicago Inter-Ocean says; "No
American is acting in the best interests of
the colored people of the south who is
encouraging them to emigrate either to
Brazil or any foreign country. They are
needed in the south as laborers, and, with
all their disadvantages, they are far better
off than they would likely be in South
America. It is only a ouestion of time
when the colored man will have his rights
in every state in the union." This we
believe to be true. Tho negro race has
made great progress since the war, and in
this is seen the hoDe of its future eleva
tion above the level of servants. It would
be too much to expect that it would in so
short a time liave accomplished much
more tnan it has. In America, great
though the disadvantages are, there is
more hope for the negroes than in the
countries of South America where the
average of intelligence is very low.
Died in the Jail.
Shelton Reddon, a colored man, well
known as "Nigger Redd," died Wednes
day night in the jail. He returned from
North Platte in the evening on the 11
o'clock train in an intoxicated condition,
going from the depot directly to the
section house, where he awoke the section
men. They arose, and supposing from his
actions that he was intoxicated, bore him
to the jail, four men being required to
convey him to the jail.
At the time the party arrived at the jail
Jailor Kiser was asleep. On awaking and
learning the mission of the party he
naturally supposed it was a common
drunk, and immediately placed him in the
cell. John Hunter, an attendant upon
the insane prisouers, noticed that the
negro was gasping for breath, and Dr.
Line was immediately notified, and upon
arrival at the jail found the prisoner
"Nigger Redd," as he was known, came
over the trail from Texas in 1875, in the
capacity of cook, and some time after
was employed by Seth Mabry as cook on
a ranch, for whom he worked for eleven
years. Discontinuing there he was em
ployed by R. E. Bean at the Keystone
ranch, where he has worked during the
past year, dishing up savor- viands for the
men who follow the festive cattle of the
North River country.
Chas. Gifford, who has known Nigger
Redd since 1875, states that he was a good
cook and faithful darkey. Even were his
virtues no further extolled, the fact that
he was a good cook will cover a multitude
of sins, and entitle him to a favored seat
in the great beyond .
The body was examined by County
Physician Ketner, who found no bruises
or marks of violence, and it is supposed
he came to his death from the effects of
too much North-Platte whisky. Ogallala
