B. H. PAYNE.
General Passenger and Ticket Agent,
St. Louis. Mo.
Have Seen Service in Many a
Hotly Contested Battle,
-Still Forget a Little
The towering locust tree which has
stood like a monarch at the lower end
of the ball park, and just on the land of
Thomas M. Carter, looked inviting as
to the wood'it could furnish, and Mr.
Carter thought he would utilize it as it
shadedhis garden anyway. So secur
ing the assistance of Thomas W. Glenn,
the two old soldier boys a few morn
ings since sailed into the giant as it
stoodin 'majesty by the creek. By
dint of'hard work they finally got the
better of the tree, and swaying and
wildly waving its branches in its death
struggle, went over, and it its fall
lodged against the barn. They cut
part of the tree up and still the re
mainder stayed against the barn, and
would not be dislodged. They then cut
off the'k branches on the lower side,
thinking the tree would roll over off
the barn, but it did not budge. Then
they acted like the boys, who went up
in the tree and sawed the limb ofF on
which they sat. They got upon the
barn from the fallen tree and pushed
the tree over. It went this time, and
no mistake but the boys, Oh! where
were they? Up on the barn of course.
First a lady came along and wondered
what those men were doing up there,
but they could not ask her to get a
ladder for them to get down, and she
passed on of course. The next was
a small boy;, he said: "Hi, there,
fellers, what you doing there?" He
was not large enough to put the
ladder up. So next along came a man
and they asked him to place the ladder
so they could get down. And as they
came down thanking their new found
friend, they said "don't say anything
about it, for we don't want it to get
out on us." But it did.
Will Farm in Illinois
It is significent with all the immi
gration west, that a few people are
going east to farm. It was not long
since that Geo. Hawkinson went to
Prophetstown, Illinois, to engage in
farming. Now John Marquette, the
son of one of our ablest jurists, shakes
the dust of Nebraska, and its capitol,
from his garments and seeks a farm in
the same state. He has his car here
today, and will finish loading with
some goods which Mrs. Marquette has
at Rock Bluffs, her former home, and
they will go to Beeson, Illinois, where
they will try their fortunes as agri
culturists. With their departure for
the cast our wishes for their happiness
and prosperity go with them, though
we would much rather see them re
maim citizens of the great common
wealth of Nebraska.
Will Visit in Kansas City.
Mrs. Kate Oliver departed this morn
ing by the way of the Missouri Pacific,
