Estimates prepared by the statistician
of the department of agriculture at
Washington show that the area of corn
harvested in 1837 was about 72,000,000
acres, or 1,450,000,000 bushels, the value
of which is placed at $040,000,000. The

400,000 acres, or 4oG.000,000 bushels,

Annual Installation of Officers.
The annual installation of officers of
Lodge 140, Independent Order of Odd
Fellows took place in their hall last
night. This lodge though young, not be
ing yet a year old, is well organized and
the sociability of its members in enter
taining their guests and visitors received
the comment of all present. The hall
was well tilled, and every one enjoyed
the evening until a late hour. The meet
ing was called to ordar by their state
representative, Mr. S. P. Vanatta, follow
ed Wy prayer from Rev. W. B. Alexander,
then began the installations of officers.
The Grand Marshall, Solomon Leyi
presented the Noble Grand with the in
coming officers in order begining with
W. W. Davis who was installed Noble
Grand for the ensuing year, Mr. Curtis
retired; Ed Morley was installed ns
Vice Grand, 1. D. Bates taking the
chair. The place of Allen Stultz as
Secretary will be filled the coming year
by L. G, Larson. R. Peterson was in
stalled Treasurer, T. W. Twiss retiring.
The principal subordinate officers are
C. Peterson, Warden; Edd Morley, Con
ductor: M. A. Hartigan, Recorder; R.
Peterson, Door-keeper; T. W. Twiss,
right of Vice Grand; J. C. Eikenbary,
left of Vice Grand. After the installa
tion followed the recital of the duties of
each officer. This over, a bountiful re
past was served by J. P. Autill, free
of charge to the guests, at the expense of
Friday Evening's Show.
W. J. Fleming's Company, "Around
the World in Eighty Days," constructed
from Jules Verne's sensational novel,
opened at the Masonic Temple Theater
last evening, to an immense audience.
The story is too familiar for repetition.
The Company is well balanced and ef
fective, and the performance throughout
is tirst-class in every respect. Perhaps the
best feature of the entertainment is the
variety of really magnificent scenery, and
it is no reflection on those who were in
the cast, to say that some of the repre
sentations in colors were more loudly
applauded than anything that was said
or done. The scope of the story affords
an almost endless opportunity for stage
display, and Manager Fleming has cer
tainly done all that is possible to make
the piece interesting and attractive, both
from a dramatic and scenic point of
view. The capture of Henrietta, the de
struction and explosion of the steamer,
the rising of the waters, the arrival of
the train at Kearney Station, the attack
of the Indians and the United States
dragoons to the resecue, the Pagoda of
Pilarji, the Suez Canal are all marvels of
beauty and faithful in picturesque de
signs. All in all, the production was the
linest of its kind we have ever witnessed.

From the Leader.
Greenwood has made but little stir
about it but has gone steadily on, attend
ing strictly to business, and as a result
can congratulate itself upon a very fair
showing of improvements for the six
months ending Jan. 1. It is true the first
half of the year was quite enough to mis
lead many people into the false idea that
the town was dead, but we are happy to
state that it was an illusion the town
was merely sleeping and the awakening
has been genuine and thorough. "With
out attempting to go iDto details and
show up every dollar that has been ex
pended in new ' buildings and improve
ments in Greenwood since July last, we
can say with all sincerity it has been a
very creditable half-year, and would
compare favorably with any other town
of its size in eastern Nebraska. The bet
part of the matter, however, lies in the
fact this is merely a half-turn of the
wheel of progress that is to be set in mo
tion in the early spring. A number of
new brick business houses are certain to
be erected, while the indications arc that
before the close of '88 our town will pos
sess an oat meal factory, a canning fac
tory, and perhaps other industries of like
A novel trade was made a few days
ago between an enterprising horse dealer
of Beatrice and a prominent farmer. The
farmer had an elegant gold watch charm
fashioned in the form of a horse. It
pleased the fancy of the horse dealer who
proposed to trade a genuine horse for it
S he asked the owner of the ornament
how he would trade it for the poorest
horse in his stable. The farmer replied
that he would give him the charm and
two dollars. The proposition was ac
cepted. He was then shown the horse,
which did not look so bad as if might,
and the farmer began to congratulate
himself on his good fortune, when the
animal proceeded to indulge in a terrible
fit during which he almost demolished
his stall. The ex-owner of the charm
was ordered to take his horse away
at once or pay heavily for his keeping,
and now he has something of an elephant
on hi3 hands and is trying to find some
one who will shoot and bury the horse
for him. The dealer smiles as he sees
the beautiful charm dangling from his
massive cb&in. Beatrice Ex.
