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 nor understanding. dubbin Offers While you are thinking of subscribing or your yearly reaaingruatter, remem ber that the Pkkhk-Jouhnal will take subscriptions to any paper ou earth and save postage and time for you.

We know, she is busv with the chickens and garden, house cleaning etc. The Missionary society nre going to bring their dinners and sew carpet rags for Clio Wednesday, that new carpet must be down before May 30. 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 seems best to concentrate our forces 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. but oh! how they will be missed by their many friends at B nlarc and (Cottonwood, and we hope Mr. Rice's successor may have the help and encouragement of the people as e iery such young person shnu d nave, ano mat ne may ne note to an a good work among his former associates.
