Trees Injured by Rabbits.
Next to the Gopher the Rabbits in
this country, perhaps, injure fruit
trees more than anything else. We
have heard and read, of, and, tried
many methods to prevent their dep
redations on young apple and pear
trees. The most -effective plan we
have tried,' Is to wrap the body of the
tree from the ground higher up than
the rabbits can reach, with a strip of
tarred rapt such as is usually used
for roofing purposes. This paper costs
but a song, and can WwrappetTand
tied expeditiously; .-.The same paher
can bo used for the second, and even
the third time.: with care. Rabbits
will not touch trees thus protected. c
We have reliable information that
there is a proipect of having in Ne
braska in this vicinity another fine
blooded horse, next spring. It is the
horse imported by the Ohio importing
association, and by them sold to par
ties and presented to Gen. Sherman.
We have not his pedigree, but have
been promised it in case he comes to
Speaking of blooded horses reminds
us that Nemaha county has now the
best Draft Stallion in the west. We
refer to the black horse Lion, owned
by Mr. Bush in the Phillip's neigh
borhood." Our farmers should not for
get that this horse Is in their midst.
Glencoe, Judge Mason's thorough
bred, is the roadster stock. lie can be
seen at the Judge's stables, near Ne
braska City. -
There is a fine Kentucky thorough
bred horse in Cass county. We are
not in possession of the owners name.
A stock company has been formed
in New York, under the. corporate
name of the" Whidock Exposition and
Exchange Company." As we under
stand it, this company introduces a
new feature in the shape of a perpet
ual agricultural and horticultural mu
seum and show room, where it is pro
posed to receive on permanent exhi
bition samples of implements of all
kinds, fruits, nursery commodities,
Ac, and also for meetings or gather
ings of cultivators, horticulturists,
fr it growers, conventrtfris, discus
sions, etc. v ine enterprise seems to
be desirable for all classes," says the
American Agriculturist. The details
of this organization are too extensive
for a newspaper notice, and we advise
our friends to send for a circular by
which they can be more fully and
satisfactorily posted. Address L.
Whitlock, 24o, Broadway, New York.
Farmers of Nemaha County, will
you write for your own home paper?
We hope you will. The elections are
now all over; soon your season's busy
time will be through, and the long
winter evenings on your hands. You
can employ those evenings to no bet
ter advantage than by jotting down
your experience the past season, and
communicating any new idea you
may have formed relative to the vari
ous branches of agriculture. Let your
neighbor have the advantage of your
experience, and you obtain his. No
better plan or medium can be adopted
than through the columns of your
own home paper. Let us hear from
Suffolks. We see by Nebraska
City papers that Hon. J. Sterling Mor
ton has been getting a new enstall
ment of Suffolk pigs. He obtained
his present stock of John Wentworth
of Chicago, 111. Mr. Morton has long
been engaged In efforts to improve
stock in Nebraska, and is deserving of
great credit. In the swine line, we
believe he has always favored the
Suffolk. The details of his experi
ments would be interesting to Ne
braska stock growers. The fact that
Mr. M. is now purchasing of Long
John Wentworth is indicative of a po
litical change of some kind hogs only,
The Western Farmer is the name
of a new agricultural paper published
at Madison, Wis. Vol. 1 No. 1 Is be
fore us. WTe say new paper. The Wes
tern Fanner is," however, a continua
tion of the Wisconsin Farrier. W.B.
Davis, Esq., is editor, and proprietor.
We have perused tjhe number before
us with great pleasure, and have no
hesitancy in saying that if future
numbers are as good as this one, the
Western Farmer will take place in the
front ranks with agricultural papers.
It is a large eight page weekly paper ;
terms, $2 per annum.
"Country Joe" is informed that
the "mark of respect" to which he
refers in his article in a late number of
the Pre, to use the language of a pol
itician, "conveys but a feeble expres
sion" of our appreciation of his ser
vices agriculturally. -If every county
in Nebraska had an Oliver Haimon,
agriculture would "leap for joy."
We hope our friends Louis A, .Wal
ker of Omaha, and C. H. Walker of
Ashland, will not forget the long wiri'
ter evenings to give us an occasional
contribution to our "Agricultural De
partment." We would be pleased to
have them do so. . , "'
. E. L. Raymond, of Hancock, New
Hampsliire, writes the Country Qen
tleinen that he raised 133 J pounds from
one' pound of seed of the "Early Rose
Potatoe. That beats our experiment.
( We are often asked "what do you
think of the grasshoppers next year?"
The question as stated, is akin to the
one "what is your opinion of the
next war?" Seriousty, wesuppose we
can only await coming events. The
grasshoppers tarried as usual in this
vicinity during the latter part of the
season, depositing, so far as our expe
rience goeSj an increased number of
eggs". They came -earlier this "season
than before. We noticed ' millions of
the young hatched out before the cold
weather came. There are those who
think the early deposit of eggs, and
the advanced stage of incubation will
result In destruction of the eggs. We
hope, or at least wis h so. If the eggs
hatch out in the- spring as usual, we
must expect the usual depredations.
.:. Tappaliannock. TS'heat. .
A correspondent of the Agricultural
Department at Washington, from Cof
fee county, Tennessee, says : .
"I received from your Department
in November, 186G, five quarts of the
Tappahannock wheat, Mour of which
I sowed, and I think it the most desi
rable varieties in this section. . Its vig
orous growth, hardiness, early matu
ring, freedom from smut and rust, and
superior quality and yield of flour, all
recommend it to our larmers." .
We sowed some of the same wheat,
derived from the same source. It was
destroyed by grasshoppers. There
was quite a quantity distributed here
abouts. Will some of those who re
ceived it let U3 know the results. The
department desire to be kept posted as
to seeds it distributes, either directly
from the experimentor, or through
the agricultural societies.
"Country Jeo,'? Otoe county's
practical exemplifier, ' communicates

Acknowledgment of Errors.
When a man does wrong, let him
admit the fact? Helicednoft publish
it in anewspnper ; he has no occasion
to tell his neighbors alKjut it,' or men
tion it to his wife, unless he is blessed
with one of good sound sense and a
sympathetic nature, but, under any
circumstances, it is wise-to admit the
error in his own mind, and not begin
to make excuses, for, if so, a repetition
of the evi will surely follow. Of
course this is in allusion to agricultu
ral matters, for it would be perfectly
impossible to allow the mind to dwell
on all the follies and injustice which
the best pf human nature is prone to-
"Myj corn does not look so well as
several pieces in the neighborhood"
don't add mentally or otherwise to
this, "but my land is not so good ; I
could not get to work at planting soon
enough, and my manure was not very
good?' No! accuse yourself manful
ly thus "It is useless to deny the fact,
my manure was' poor, because ray
stock lived bad ; my land was not
plowed early enough, and has iiad
crop after crop taken off without any
return, excepting the slight applica
tion this spring." A determination
to change thi matter will produce a
healthful state of mind, in other cases
of mismanagement; the next year,
not only will the corn land be ready
as soon as the weather is warm enough
to plant, but the manure; will be better
in consequence of better feeding of
animals, and also because, instead of
lying iri the "yaM tiiriluuJldltb be put
on the land at seed time, it was taken
out inthe winterand turned over once
ortwice in a heap before being depos
ited finally on the ground. Then there
will follow thorough cultivation be

, Let every farmer keep a diary, re
cording every day's work, and com
menting on, every .omission .he. finds
he has made; stating therein any
doubt in his mind as to whether a dif
ferent course might not have been
preferable, and even . making memo
randa of the opinion of neighbors, of
his sons,, or of any intelligent work
man ; and, no matter how smart a man
he may be, an after perusal may be
profitable, and, withal, it will be real
ly interesting to know in futuro.jcars
what were his views at former periods
of his life, for many deceive them
selves in various respects when there
is naught in black and white io prove
the' exact state Tjf the case in point.

packing in wet .ashes to remove the
hair, and then. kept a few days in old,

very tough and plLablc, and answer. a
good purpose for flail-strings, whip

I have inaugurated a reduction in the prlco
of Clothing, probably nnparalled io th his
tory of Nebraska, and In order that tha pub
lic so long subject to the exhorbitant rates of
hard times, may thoroughly comprehend and
confide in my movement, I desire to say a
few practical words about it.
Jn the flrat place it is an indisputable, on-. .
deniable fact that at the house of the Great
Western Dry Good and Clothing Price Regula
tor, the very best of clothing of all descrip
tions is now selling at cash prices. No eon
nivlng competitors can conceal or cancel tho
fact,' Every citizen can practically authenti
cate for himself by visiting tht Great Wes
tern Regulator.' Hundreds are now rejoicing
in Its truthhaving practically proved it.
The next question is, why do I carry out
such grand and wholesale red uction ? Head
er, the answer is simple. . Necessity modiXIe
and often abrogates all the laws of trade. I
have an Immense stocA of assorted clothing
on -hand. Via a liUle; time an important
change in my Arm renders It absolutely nec
essary that I should dispose of this stoc.' "
Valuable as it is, this must be done. The I s of
profit mae no difference-, ten art bound to sell
owf stock. : To accomplish this we &now of no
better way than to offer it to the public at 1U,
original j.-oet.TlU3 lean afford to do nnder
the circumstances, ad this Ian now doing.
Let noraadly jealous rival cry "humbug."
Let nobody soffer from a paralysis e( aston
ishment.. Phenomenal aa may be the enter
prise in the bnslnesa world, it ts simple, plain,
unvarnished, fact. This splendid st--c of
clothing at Great Weftern Emporium Ret;u-'
lator Is selling at cost. ETCTy conceivable nr
HcJi of dress which a 'man or boy, rich or
Eoor, can need, may here be procured at tha
bare ,-ost of material and making.
?Let no handsome bar-maids stare as muta
" as flhes.
And shallow waiters, frightened, drop their
- . ' . -v.-
m Tlia thing is a fact, and why it Is so wc havo
It Is unnecessary to say any more. If any
body desires to see our statements verified,
Icthini visit our establishment The busy
thtong of customers prt-wnt daily is the best
argument nobody can resist. I Invite the
whole city wtthln our hall. The freezing
breath of winter is in the air, but we hold th
antldotc.j i desire to injure no man 'a trad
but I eannol undertake to be Influenced by
anything but my own interest. I announced
tbaf my stock Is selling at cot.t, and to prove It
Fin-vita the inspect ka of all. It Is Impossibla
to realise that I wUl be compelled to do tha
8aina.wlth my future stock. Let no person,
stay away until it is too lots. Now may the
