Grant, Neb., June 17, 1890. (Special
to the Independent) Grant.the county
seat of Perkins county, is situated on
the Cheyenne branch of tbe B. & M. K.
It. near the center of tbe county on a
high table land, and was once a very
lively and prosperous village but it is
plain to be seen that the hand of old
time has treated her badly during the
last three or four years. In conversa
tion with One of her citizens I learned
the deplorable fact that it had seventy
vacant houses and sixty which were oc
cupied, with chances for n further shrink
age along that line. J t, like a great many
of our Nebraska towns, as overbuilt
or in other words were built very much
in advance of the country. The farming
districts bave been reduced by the dry
seasons until there are but few in com
parison with a few years ago. The peo
ple who are left In this country, as also
those that are still in tnis part ot the
state, have arrived at the conclusion
that stock raising is the one thing that
can be carried on in this section with a
fair degree of profit and acting upon this
idea they are doing their best along that
The county in its finances is all right,
especially is this true under the present
county officers who are populists with
the exception of one commissioner and
county attorney. Its warranis are all
paid in cash as soon as presented, bo
much for populist economy

Stockville, Neb., June 18,1896.
(Special to the Independent:) I board
ed the east bound train on the morning
of the 17th of June and slowly wound
our way eastward through the table
lands striking the villages of Madrid and
Erie in Perkins Co. and Wallace, Dickens,
Somerset and Willfleet in Lincoln county
and May wood in Frontier county and
reached Curtis our stopping place after
an eighty mile ride at a very slow gate.
Curtis is situated in tha northern part
of Frontier county and at one time en
tertained great hopes of being the county
seat of the county, but Stockville situa
ted about twelve miles sout-heast se
cured the plum.
The county seat is quite a spritely lit
tle inland town situated in the creek
valley and surrounded by high lands
which in most cases are under a good
state of cultivation. The farmers to
a large extent have their farms well im
proved and their corn fields show that
they are a painstaking and industrious
people. The county at the present time
is under the control policically of the
populist party and every thing is run
ning very smoothly. The party is rap
idly gaining friends among the people,
and it is now a foregone conclusion that
with judicious nominations both state
and county tickets will go out of Fron
tier with a handsome majority at the
Noveniber election. J. M. D.

Elwood, Neb., June 19, 1896.-(Spe&
ial to the Independent) Elwood the
county seat of Gosper county, was
reached on the morning of the 18th inst.
This little village is located near the
north side of the county and on the
Cheyenne branch of the B. & M. R. R.
about thirty.five miles north-west from
Holdredge. With normal weather con
ditions it would be a prosperous village.
The soil is of the best quality in Nebras
ka, and apparently well cultivated and
as above stated with a reasonable
amount uf rain fall, crops of all kinds
wou'.d be abundant, but at this writing
all hopes of an average yield of small
grain has vanished. Corn looks well and
is growing rapidly and promises with a
favorable July to make a very large crop,
which will somewhat counteract the lim
ited vield of small grain. I visted the
court house, and talked with the county
officers and find them very hopfullor the
future of their country and state. They
are to a man strong and earnest, advo
cates of the free coinage policy, believing
it to be one of the leading featuies in our
present political situation and l might
add right here that a strong feeling ex
ists here as elsewhere for a joining of
hands of the reform forces of the nation
this year without regard;to party names.
The time is ripe for Union.

YELLOW STONE PAKK
Is more and more impressing itself
upon the public, as the years go by, as
being the great park of the land. The
strong feature of it is the fact that it is
not a man made park, True enough
man has built roads and bridges and ho
tels in order that he may see the park,
but he has not yet tried his hand at con
structing new-fangled geysers, or re
adorning or resculpturiug the Grand
Canyon of the Yellowstone, these are
as God left them. There, too, the elk,
bear, deer and other animals are not en
closed in wire fences. They wander free
and unfretted whethersoever they will.
Man's handiwork is but little seen and
the park is the grander forit. Send Chas,

The Populist Idea Gains.
Bbrtrand, Neb., June 20, 1896.-I
reached this little village situated on the
west line of Phelps county yesterday and
can say for it that it presents a very
neat appearance. It is west from Hol
dredge about eighteen miles and situa
ted in a very rich table land which is
dotted with nice farmes and comfortable
homes almost on every section. This
locality was visited two days ago with
hail that did some damage to small
grain but the path of the storm wasnar-
now and not very long so ina me uuiu
nee done was not verv extensive.
Free coinage and the populist idea is
gaining friends and both forging to tne
