Prefect Our Birds.
We hear men boasting of killing birds
for pastime. Well all we have to say
for such men, (if you can call them men)
is that if tney have nothing more to do
than that, the Lord had better take
them away from this world, for they are
of no use to mankind, and a destroyer of
the most cheering creatures that was
ever put upon the earth. Take away
out of this world the song birds and ft
would be a cheerless place to live in, and
not only their song, but they were put
here for ot her puriKses. So God help
the poor man that him nothing more to
do than shoot down poor little innocent
birds for pastime and .amusement. The
school teachers of Nebraska have been
called upon at different times to touch
the children to love and protect the birds
of our state and country, and here we
find men that can boast of killing the in
nocent little birds. We are sure that if
such men have nothing else to do than
kill Innocent birds they had better go
quietly anions tliem and study their ways
and habits, and if they then can't learn u
lesson of industry as tliey have never
known before they neither liave hearts

In severing our connection with Sioi x
County, it does not mean we shall loose j
interest in our friends there, hut it means
we can not lie in two places at once, and
until the children nie through school it

here. If land increases in value here as ;
it has farther East we may make a '
fortune here yet, but the prospects are
not very flattering for such a raise in
land as Iowa has taken.
We hope Rev. and Mrs. Rice will have
a pleasant trip this summer to Colorado
and that the change of chmnte will be a
benefit and a help to them in every way.
