Set Sail for Argentine Republic.
Harry Doane, a tinner who was in the
employ of C. H. Miller during the winter
and spring, having tired of Nebraska con
ceived the idea of leaving the country in
a novel way, which, if successful, will ex
plode the idea of navigation on the Platte
river. 10 buiit a nat boat ot sneet iron
with dimensions of sir feet by thirty feet,
the craft only drawing about six inches of
water when loaded with his family, cook
ing utensils and bedding. The boat will
be propelled by sails. On Mondsy morn
ing the "merry party bade their friends a
lasting farewell, pulled in their anchor,
hoisted sails and the long bridge across
the Platte bejran to fade awav on the vast
of watershen he ran up high and dry
on a sand bar about twenty-five rods from
the place of starting. Not discouraged
at this, the sturdy captain plunged into
the stream and tried to push aside when
the sand began boiling all around forming
a small island with the boat as a nucleus.
On Tuesday afternoon they had not suc
ceeded in getting away. Mr. Doane is
confident that if he can reach Columbus
his difficulties will be at an end. He is
resolute and- will not give up his scheme
without learning that it is an impossibil
to navigate the Platte. Argentine Re
public, S. A., is the country they have in
view, ana they expect to travel there in
their little craft. The undertaking seems
almost as foolhardy as the first trip made
by Columbus, but may be successful.
What next "i Kearney New Era.
John L. Carson, one of the oldest bank
ers of Auburn, Neb., and widely, known
throughout the west, has long been a suf
ferer from gravel and some nine months
ago went east where he had a surgical
operation performed and five gravel re
moved from the bladder. This caused a
kind of blood poisoning to settle in the
big toe on the right foot, making amputa
tion of that member a necessity. Even
this did not stay the disease and a second
amputation was made, the last one being
about half way below the knee. These
three amputations, being make in quick
succession, proved almost too mucn for
him, and for a long time he was very low.
but has now recovered so far that he can
ride out in his carriage.
Barring a bad storm or an unusually
severe wind, the small grain crop in Per
kins county is made. The bountiful
rains of April aHd May produced a very
heavy growth of grain, furnishing suffi
cient moisture to bring it to head. Tues
day's soaking rain gives moisture enough
to form the grain and ripen it. The
amount of grain sown in Perkins county
this year is enormous, fully double the
amount put out last year. If the yield is
good, and there is every prospect thalit
will be very heavy, there will be a great
excess of grain in Perkins county. It
will be a different experience to ship out
instead of ship in. In the event of the
success of the now reasonably assured
crop, Perkins county will offer an excel
lent field for a flour mill. Grant Enter-

Sawyer who lives in the vicinity of the

Colwell ro a sociable given at the resi

he was struggling in the dirt, unable to
speak. Surgical aid was brought and the
wound dressed. In answer to queries,
he wrote that he did the deed with his
brother's razor which he brought with
him, and that he meant to kill himself
with it. The injury is healing fast and
bids fair his recovery. Sawyer is a young
man past twenty-one years of age, was of
gentlemanly habits and had a large circle
of friends. His strange procedure can
not be accounted for. Kearney New
Grant's Farm Sold.
St. Louis Republic, June 22: The real
estate sensation of yesterday culminated
at high noon yesterday when Captain
Luther H. Conn, the Granite Mountain
millionaire and gallant ex-Confederate,
became possessor of the celebrated Grant
farm of 750 acres, which president Grant
mortgaged to Wm. H. Vanderbiit in 1884
to partially extricate the firm of Grant &
Ward from the results of Ward's rascality.
The farm lies just twelve miles west of
the court house on the Gravois road. The
consideration was about $60,000, and this
transaction causes the historic Dent
homestead tract to change hands for the
first time in half a century. The finar
papers will be signed to-day.
Captain Luther H. Conn, the purchas
er, is a Kentuckian, and has a Confeder
ate record as one of the bravest snd most
daring men in Morgan's command, and,
like all Southerners, appreciates the sen
timental and the romantic, as well as pos
sessing the Kentucky weakness for fine
horses. Since the war he has been en
gaged in the real estate business, and re
cently became a double millionaire
through successful mining ventures, and
now the old Kentucky blood is reassert
ing itself and he has purchased this well
adapted Dent homestead to indulge his
fancy, and proposes to establish a stock
farm. He has already christened his
newly acquired relic "Grantwood," so that
it can never lose its identity -as the home
of the silent commander.
