Judge KaijiH3' Writes Another lulerest
iiifj Lttttrr For "Journal" r r4lrt.
Hay Springs, Neb., Sept. 3d ,'95.
Dkau Journal : On Saturday last
we embarked in a carriage for Hay
Springs, distant from Chadron about
twenty-five miles. Our route lay along
the Elkhorn railroad and up the val
ley of the Little liordeaux a small
stream of clear and pure water.fringed
on both sides with a growth of cotton
wood, .ash. elm, pine and uumerous
vines. On the route we noticed many
fair fields of tmall grain in shock and
many stackyards, which indicate that,
notwithstanding the drouth, small
grain is not an entire failure in Dawes
and Sheridan counties. So far as
learned, the crop of wheat shows
two and a half to ten bushels
per acre and oats from ten to twenty.
The corn crop is a comparative failure,
although an occasional field will yield
from ten to twenty bushels per acre.
The potato crop is fair, while the yield
of hay is limited. Farm lands, fairly
well improved, are offered for sale very
cheap. One improved quarter-section,
two miles south of Hay Springs, with
a $700 farm house, with outbuildings,
about eighty acres under cultivation,
and all fenced with wire, was sold a
few days ago for $500, cash. Many
other improved quarter-sections can
be bought for from $400 up to $S00.
The soil of Sheridan county is very
productive, in some instances, wheat
going as high as forty-four bushels
per acre in a favorable season. Corn,
during a favorable season, has yielded
fairly well; yet, owing to climatic
causes, such as the high altitude and
consequent cool nights, it is not be
lieved that this part of Nebraska will
ever be a successful corn producing
Like Dawes and other northwestern
counties, the salvation of Sheridan
county depends upon successful irriga
tion. This subject is absorbing more
attention among the people here than
any other economical subject, not ex
cepting silver, sixteen to one.
Many old Cass county boys and girls
are settled in Sheridan county. Among
those whom we have met are Dr. J.W.
Waterman, Mrs. Waterman and their
two charming daughters, the Misses
Ethel and Ruth. They are located on
a beautiful farm near this place, which
the doctor located under the soldier's
homestead act. He, like many others,
had the misfortune to have his claim
contested, which finally ended before
the secretary of the interior, the doc
tor winning his case before every de
partment. We also met Mr. and Mrs. Sol
Dewey, who are located iu this city.
Mr. Dewey is successfully engaged in
merchandising, having a well-stocked
hardware store and doing a fine trade.
Mr. and Mrs. Phil Horn are also lo
cated here, Mr. Horn being engaged
in the livery business, and has a fine
patronage. Mr. Horn, like his rel
atives in Cass county, is a large land
owner and owns several farms in Sher
Another Cass county boy whom we
met is Attorney John E. Gilmore, who
has been located iu Hay Springs for
about two years and, although young
iu years, and ju3t embarked on the
tempestuous and somewhat uncertain
voyage of a lawyer, yet he has suc
ceeded in establishing a good and
growing business. This is not theonly
sensible thing our young lawyer friend
has done since coming to northwest
ern Nebraska. He has, by his per
suasive eloquence, induced one of Hay
Springs' fairest daughters to go into a
life partnership. A few months ago
he was united in marriage to Miss
LSauman, a sister of Dr. Bauman, a
leading physician of this county.
But, enough for this time. We ex
pect to return home the first of next
week. B. S. Ramsey.
Opening of the School.
The Plattsmouth public schools
opened Monday morning, after a sum

term promises to be unusually large
and an increase of about five per cent
over last year's enrollment is already
reported. In the high school room
there are eighty-four pupils enrolled,
against fifty-two last term. All the

The Catholic school also has an in

A Scrap of History.
Ckipple Cheek, Colo., Sept. I.
Editor J ouknal: Sir In looking
over The J ouknal of Aug. 22d, I
came across an article entitle "Early
Nebraska History," in which was de
scribed a book prepared by Mrs. Bar
num of Union, and telling about a
Mrs. Samuel Martin, who had placed
her name therein and dated her resi
dence from ISo.'i, and that sjme people
doubted the truth of her statement. as
Nebraska was not open for settlement
for two years after that datu.
Now, I can give jou a little informa
tion iu regard to the lady ami correct
a mistaken idea about the settlement
of Nebraska. Nebraska was opened
for settlement in 1854. The treaty
was signed iu September or October
and I moved iuto the territory Nov.
21st, 1854. and if you will put on your
thinking-cap you will remember that
the winter of lS54-f was the time that
the poor Kausasites had such a sor
rowful time striving to have the state
come in as a free state, and Nebraska
was opened for settlement at the same
This Mrs. Martin was the wife of
Samuel Martin. He came to Ne
braska in 1853 and, in order to become
a fur-trader with the Indians, he had
to marry a squaw from the tribe with
which he wished to trade, lie mar
ried one. and, as Mrs. Martin's nerves
were not strong enough to stand that
kind of life, she took her little girl and
went to Illinois, where her parents
lived. She left her two boys with
When the white people began to
settle around Martin, he felt ashamed
and bought his Indian wife off and
sent her back to her tribe. Then he
married a Mormon lady. He died the
ISth day of December, 1854, and my
husband (N.P. Todd) and his brother,
L. (i. Todd, made his coffin and buried
him on the hill south of the high school
building. After he died his two boys
were bound out the oldest to Moses
Jackson and the other to a gentleman
living south of tow n, w hose name I do
not know. During the summer their
uncle came to Plattsmouth and hunted
the boys up, but as they were bound,
he had to get them the best w ay he
could, so he had them come to tow n to
get some things their mother had sent
them. As there was a boat going down
the river, they thought best to take
passage on her, and that w as the last
ot the boys.
I would like to have my name put in
that book, if the old settlers see fit to
place it there.
I was born in Jamestown, N. Y.,
Jan. 15th, came to Nebraska
Nov. 21st, 1S54. and my postoflice is
Cripple Creek, Colo.
I have drawn this out a great ileal
longer than I intended to, so I will
close by wishing Nebraska Godspeed.
Nome New Orchard.
The orchard fever has at last struck
some of the farmers of Plattsmouth
precinct and there is likely to be a
good many acres planted in apples
next spring. Andrew Taylor talks of
planting his orchard all over again
with young trees; II. M. (iault, for
whom J. II. Ileikes planted 1,000 trees
last spring and they have done so well
(he only lost thirteen trees) that he
expects to put in twenty acres more;
Thomas Sullivan is preparing the
ground for a new twenty-five-acre or
chard; Wm. Taylor will also plant sev
eral acres, while J. C. Petersen calcu
lates to extend his orchaid and Wm.
Crawford, the gardener, wants to
plant 1,000 cherry trees as an experi
ment. Frank Moore of Three Groves,
who already has one of the best or
chards in the county is talking of put
ting twenty or more acres in apples.
And so the woik begins and The
Journal hopes it is but a beginning.

Whereas, The State Board of Ag
riculture has passed resolutions, hang
ing up a purse of $75,- to be given to
the winner of a race between Ned
Reading, the bicyclist, and Lee Alli
son, with a team of horses.
Therefore, lie it agreed by and be
tween Ned Heading, of the county of
Douglas, and Lee Allison, of the
county of Cass, as follows:
That said Ned Reading shall ride a
bicycle, paced or unpaced, as he may
see fit, before the State Fair associa

be mutually agreed upon.
We, the undersigned. Lee Allison
and Ned Reading, hereby agree and
do accept the conditions hereinbefore
set forth in conformity with the reso
lutions passed by the State Roard of
Agriculture, and each of us agrees to
be present on the IGth day of Septem

four o'cloclk, p.m. holding ourselves
during said time in readiness to run

"Affairs in republican circles are
approaching that condition," says an
old observer, "in which the managers,
b?aten at the polls, rearranged their
lines and are again in control. The
first program included the nomination
of Fikenbary for sheriff and Pollock or
Davis for treasurer, while Douglass of
Weeping Water was slated for county
judge. The new slate as now ar
ranged by the managers evidently in
cludes Williams of Eight Mile Grove
for sheriff, Robertson of Louisville for
county clerk (probably), Wiedemann
of Greenwood for treasurer, and
iieeson for county judge. The effort
to nominate Davis will probably
slaughter Ilolloway, because Wiede
mann will combine with Williams,
and if he can't win will put Williams
to the front."

Several years ago I discovered a

bowel which increased and became
very distressing. I made inquiry as
tothe nature of the disease and learned
that I had a somewhat aggravated case
of Hemorrhoids or Piles. Was told of
several remedies and used them as di
rected, obtaining thereby some tem
porary relief. Not being satisfied with
such slight relief I cast about for a per
manent cure; when a friend directed
the use of the famous Magnet Pile

from pain followed, and soon a com
