THIRTY-FIVE YEARS AGO.

Herald of this time thirty-five years

On Sunday afternoon the flying
grasshoppers made their appearance
here in small numbers, but did little
serious damage. Monday morning
however, they were Hying noith
west in vast clouds. In the afternoon
they began to drop, and Monday even
ing gardens and lots were full of them.
The town presented a funny appear

hopes of saving vegetables and small
By ten o'clock Tuesday this swarm
rose and disappeared, and a great
load seemed lifted off our people.
However, Wednesday morning they
again appeared and all day the flight
was kept up and was probably the most
extensive the country has yet witness
ed. In the evening they began to
drop. Wheat fields were covered with
them, a fair average count would give
six to ever stalk and the ground was
a brown, moving, wiggling mass.
By listening you could HEAR them
cat they imparted a reddish brown
tinge to the wheat as they roosted on
the stalks, making it look at "a dis

Business men are as great sufferers
as the farmer; they must, however,
be lenient to creditors and helpful
to each other. Everbody must try
and pay ull they can, live as cheaply
as they can and quit grumbling.
Nevertheless, wc still Buy there .is
no better country than Nebraska.
In Minnesota they are paying bounties
for grasshoppers; half of Iowa and a
.large part of Missouri is devastated;
Kansas is infinitely worse ofT; a drouth
prevails in many of the eastern states
and it is hard times all over."
TWENTY YEARS AGO

held with a vast assembly in and
around the tenl for the tent was en
tirely too small to contain them a)
many coming in from the country and
sitting in wagons and buggies within
hearing distance of the tent. One
noticable feature of these meetings was
that a great many country people came
in to hear the "Texas Cyclone," as
he was called, and they evinced a
great deal of interest in the discussion
of the question. It is the general
impression that the Jordan meetings
were a success and productive of much
