Hon. W. F. Wright arrived at North
Platte as per arrangement, and attend
ed the meeting of the county alliance
and at night addressed the people on
some of the issues of the day. Our
people were much pleased with Brother
Wright and so far as l nave neara
from his meetings during th week
much good has been accomplished. It
st ems to me the conditions now con
fronting us make it imperative that we
keep up our organization throughout
As soon as it is decided when the
state meeting will be held I should
like to know. I a n of the opinion tht
it will be well to ho'd it sometime in

The following letter explains itself.
Mr. Aska's name does not appear in the
city directory for 1892 and he seems to
have left the city. If any of our
readers can give us any knowledge of
his whereabouts they will please com
municate with Mr. Black.

Dear Sir and Brother Elija Love,
a lad of sixteen years, formerly a neigh
bor boy of mine writes m from Florida
enquiring for the whereabouts or bam
Aska a former resident of Furnas
countv, Neb. Mr Aska went from
Furnas county to your city years ago.
Elija Love's object is to learn the
whereabouts of his mother, from wh- m
he has been lost for ten years, the re
suit of division in the fam ly, he being
left with the ftther. Can you search
the city through the labor lodges and

Points for Hog Raisers.
Hog cholera seems to be incurable;
those attacked either die or lose their
thriftiness and become worthless.
Everything which makes an animal
healthy and vigorous, increases its
power to ward off attacks of disease.
Hence variefy of food, good water clean
pens or yards, not allowing too many to
sleep togeiher in gold weather, etc.,
are all points to be locked after. The
objection to crowding in cold weather
is, that those in he middle become
over heated and suffer when they come
out suddenly into the air. In addition
to these hygienic points give the f ollow
ng: To a herd of say twenty-five (and
in smae proportion for a larger or
smaller number) give one peck of bran,
a quart of salt, a peck of wook a9hes, a
quarter of a pound of soda and one
tablespoonful of carbolic acid, mixed
' thoroughly twice a we k. Keep char
coal always within reach.
Brine on the Soup.
Backward, turn backward, O time in
your flight, give us a victory jut f ir
tonight; wipe from our features the
torrent of tears, take up the slack in
the ropo of the years; turn back the
clock till it reads '88 blot out the pres
ent unmerciful fate, give us some hope
for this nat ion's concern; change the re
turns, mister, chaLge the returns.
Backward, flow backward, O stream of
the age, seasoned tonight with republi
can rage; blot from our vision stuffed
prophets and crow, choke off democ
racy's bluster and blow; jerk from des
pair a few fragments of hope, "keep a
good eye ' as we roll down the slope.
Never mind now it's too late what a
sconp! Bring us the soup, mister bring
us the soup. Al Bixby.
lirig.-Gen. Kitnsoui't Many Wounds.
Brig.-Oen. Thomas E.G. Ransom wat
one of the bravest soldiers sent by Illi
nois to the war in 1801. Ue was wound
ed severely four times, but he was still
in active tervice when he died, Oct. 29,
1864. The first time he distinguished
himself was in a brilliant dash upon
n i a . . ? . it i
unarieston, alo. iiere ne received a
serious wound and was given a furlough
of thirty days, but on the seventh day
he was back at his post. At the assault
upon Fort Donelson he led his regiment
through the hottest part of the fight,
His clothing was pierced by six bullets
and he was badly wounded, but refused
to leave the field until the close of the
contest. At Shiloh he was again in the
front.and in his reportMaj.-Gen.McCler-
nand said of him: "CoL Ransom per
formed prodigies of valor, though reel
ing in his saddle and streaming with
blood from a serious wound." At the
disastrous battle of Sabine Crossroads,
while fighting with his usual gallantry,
a bullet struck him in the knee. Four
surgeons were called in consultation
and two of them advised amputation
while the others thought it unneces
sary. After the capture of Atlanta
Gen. Ransom had a severe attack of
dysentery, and though unable to walk
or ride horseback, refused to leave his
post of duty. While being carried in
an ambulance he directed the move
ments of his corps, then in pursuit of
Hood's army. The malady conquered
him at last, and while at Rome, Ga.,
he breathed his last, leaving a record
for courage and heroism unsurpassed
by that of any other soldier in the
service of the Union. Chicago News.
Gen. Boy i) ton's Oration.
The Chicago Journal thinks that in
his oration delivered at Chattanooga
before the Society of the Army of the
Cumberland, Gen. H. V. Boy n ton cor
rected what he asserted to be errors in
the Memoirs of Grant and Sherman,
and gave to Gens. Buell and Thomas a
degree of credit for certain actions not
heretofore accorded them. Such ad
dresses as this by Gen. Boynton are
good things. They need in no sense
be looked upon as a presumptuous or
as reflecting upon the great generals
whose accounts are criticised, while,
on the other hand, they assist in cor
correcting the natural errors of early
history Gen Boynton' s address may
arouse unthinking adverse comment,
but we cannot have too much educa
tion or correction of the story of the
great events of the war from men of
his ability and great opportunities.
