With the extension of the mains and
the coming of dry hot weather, subscrib

The consumption is sufficient to keep the
pumps slowly in motion all the time,
night and day. Still it is believed that
the average consumption here will not be
so great as in towns where they have a
sewerage S3'stem, as the drainage is defective.

something that had been published in the
correspondence from that precinct After
examinine the same for several weeks
past we are unable to detect anything at
which we would suppose a person could
take offense. The gentleman who has
been thus pummeled, however, should
not take the matter to heart, remember
ing that'it is only what newspaper men
and correspondents are obliged to fre
quently suffer when they first enter the
business and he should esteem it an
honor to be classed among the martyrs.
The lead pencil is mightier than the
sword, and if properly handled even the
bullies will fear to attack you.
A gentleman who has been setting up
harvesters for Herahey& Co. and who
has been in all parts of the county, says
that he never saw such fine grain in any
country. Rye, which is. now being har
vested, is "simply immense," standing
five feet (he said five and one half, but
we'll leave off a half foot,) the straw being
about as long as' the harvesters can han
dle. Of course every fanner is anxious
to get his grain cut as soon as possible,
and thus have it .oat ofrUie way of hail,

cases where the straw proved to be too

The contract to build the jail was
awarded to John Hinman at 7,700, his
bid being $77.lower than Mr. Thomson's.
Material for the building has been order
ed and work will commence as soon as
possible. The contractor has need to be
in a hurry if he does not want freezing
weather on hand before he can get the
plastering on; but Mr. Hinman can crowd
a job along about as fast as any contractor
we know of. The commissioners have
app6inted R. D. Thomson to superintend
the construction of the building.

The contracts to build the different
bridges, one across the South Platte near
John Keith's, one across the north chan
nel of the river near Maxwell, and one
across Birdwood creek, were let to John
Means, the two latter at $3.77 per foot.
The O'Fallon bridge will be 200 feet
long, the contractor building it for the
bonds, $7,000, and 120 in warrants, The
Missouri Valley bridge and Iron Works
Company submitted a bid that would
have built the bridge for $6,824, but it
seems there was some defect in the spec
ifications which caused the board to reject
the bid and accept Mr. Means offer. As
a bridge builder, Means has a high repu

If there is a scheme on foot to change
the name of streets using letters instead
of the euphoneous names which they now
have it should receive disapproval by the
people. Of all the ways to name streets
the most poverty stricken is to letter
them. There are twenty-six letters, and
when you get to the end of the alphabet
you can commence with AA street, BB

is it that people will adopt this abomina

in names? There is something in a name.

cool atmosphere. Refreshments were
served at a proper time after which danc

The Democratic Club Meeting.
The Democrats held a meeting of their
club Monday night, having given notice
by dodger inviting the faithful only. A
stalwart Democrat was stationed at the
door and none were admitted except they
could give the countersign or satisfactory
evidence that they desired to sien the ar
ticles of faith. Was such a thing ever
heard of holding a political meeting os
tensibly for the purpose of discussing the
principles ot tne party ana making con-J
verts with closed doors? Private busi
ness meetings of the organization are
perfectly proper, but meetings announced
by dodger in a public hall it strikes us
should be public.
We know that the proceedings must
have been interesting. Bro. Bullard
could talk without fear of being criticised.
We are unable to give a verbatim report,
but Walsh of the Nebraskian is said to
have been sat down upon unceremonious
ly. He's been hanging around on the
outskirts of the party for a long time, and
the administration party are getting tired
of carrying the dead weight. They say
that they don't want any drones and that
he must either fish or rut bait. To pla
cate them he has changed the name of his
paper to "Democrat," but we doubt if
that has the soothing effect desired.

As the country becomes settled the
gray wolves (cams buffqlois) become more
ravenous probably from the .fact that
the game on which they formerly preyed
has been destroyed or driven away. Late
ly they have been in the habit of destroy
ing cavles and colts and in some cases
grown cattle and horses where the same
become disabled. From this fact and
the large tracks they leave they have fre
quently been supposed to be mountain
lions, but this has been proven to be an

saw it, weighed one hundred and thirty
pounds, was chunky with large feet and a
thick, broad bull-dog head and nose, the
hair being wooly of a gray color about
four inches long. This description corre

lifeless about the time of the Chi

good. If this is any evidence of
the political harvest in November
next fall, the'fat man will be- de
livered of the cares of his office.
