On tho dead walls of tho city I notice ad
vertising innttcr calling rlio attention of the
multitude to tho advantages nnd Inducements
oirered by tlio great northwest, Portland,
Oregon, uud tho country thorenlout. I am
pleased to note that this celebrated part of
(Judo Barn's domain is being introduced to
tho nation, nnd know that by consistent en
terprise and continued elTorts tho biggest
boom over enjoyed nnywhero will bo wit
nessed by the jieoplo of that now and glo
rious quarter within tlio next fow years. It
has everything i make n prosperous coni
inon wealth, nnd there Is no reason w hy Its
resources can not bo developed and material
ized to tho beuellt of all comers. Iron, coal,
timlier, agricultural pursuits, lino climntu,
excellent trnusiMirtnllou facilities and every
thing necessary to enrich mankind is there in
abundance, and in order to settle up the
country tho railroads nro offering sjioeinlly
low rntes to prospectors and land seekers.
Tho Omnhii and Lincoln milkmen at pres
ent can now soliloquize over the situation of
the water question. Kor n long time Omiiha
has tried, and tried hard, to purify its muddy
water, but with no entire successful result,
and as ii consequence tho glass or milk after
standing u few moments shows tho settling
and gives tho milkman's auxiliary dead away,
while the Lincoln milk denier is trying to
solve tho problem of what sort of nryiirr to
to uso in place of our salt water.
