Johnson Country Fair
The First Annual Fair for Johnson
county was held October Cth and 7th.
We reached the grounds on Thursday
afternoon, and found a large number
of people on the ground. We were
Introduced to a number of the lead
ing men who took it upon themselves
to show us the various articles on ex
hibition. The grounds are on the town
plat of Tecumseh, just east of the
small stream which borders the im
proved portion on the east. The
ground was fenced in, and as we enter
the gate we observe the stock shds to
the left. The agricultural implements
and the floral, vegetables, and fine art
halls are to the right. Upon the fine
art hall we noticed that the stars and
and stripes . were flying. The track
was straight ahead of us with a stand
in the centre, from the flag pole of
which the stars and stripes were fly
ing. We were not long in determining
the fair a grand success for so new a
county. The vegetable display was
abundant. The articles large and well
developed. The turnips, squashes,
pumpkins, corn, kohl rabbi, tomatoes,
melons, mangel wertzels, egg plants,
winter radish, goards, carrots, pars
nips, cabbage, onions, beets, potatoes,
Ac., were as good as any at the State
Fair, and there were more of each
than there, The butter, lard, jellies,
domestic wines and preserves were
most excellent. There were some
very nice Concord and Isabella Grapes,
a few peaches, pears, and a large va
. ricty of apples. The rye, wheat and
oats were prime articles The flour
from Blvens, Howarth & Co.'s, and
from Strong' mills was inferior to
none made in the west. In the hall
vre found the usual articles of needle,
patch and crotchet work, carpeting,
bed ppreads, over gowns and children's
clothing ; also lounges, saddles, har
ness, millinery goods, flowers, bou
quets, shellwork, pencil drawings,
paintings, needle work, silver ware,
hair and cereal wreaths, rugs, ; scarfs,
and many other articles.
Mrs. Brant's German Bed Spread,
Chinese and Japan curiosities and
pencil drawings. Mrs. Rhodes, pic

Trip to Tecumieli.
Our first trip to Tecumseh, the
county seat of Johnson County, w&3
made in February. 1SCS. Then the
business of that thriving town was
receiving a fresh impetus. The peo
ple were just beginning to have fresh
hopes in anticipation of flush times.
Brick, lumber, nails, mechanics, &c,
were being enquired for. Good loca
tions for business houses and residen
ces were being looked up as a matter
for future contemplation and perhaps
purchase. Then there was now and
then a farm opened, and in other
places hedge rows were started or the
ground broken -for the hedge. On
other parts of the prairies a stake was
driven, and other signs that the pio
neer had taken possession were obser
vable. In the western part of Nema
ha and almost anywhere in Johnson
Government lands subject to entry,
pre-emption and homesteads were
plenty. Soon emigration came pour
ing in ; good fanning lands, improved
an unimproved, were In active de
mand; business houses and residen
ces, one after another, were erected in
Tecumseh in rapid succession. Farms
were improved; miles of hedge were
set out so. that In our trip of last
week we notice the face of the coun
try through which we passed has been
greatly changed within the last eigh
Near the road we noticed many new
building?. Herman Utocht has erected
a new residence ; Barney Otens, John
Gutzmer and E. A. Ellsworth have
bearing orchards; and many other
orchards of one, two and three years
standing, can be seen. There is hard
ly an improved farm but has its young
grove of maples, walnuts and cotton
wood timber growing, and nearly
every farm is surrounded with grow
ing hedges. The government land is
all taken, in both counties, and the
wild prairie ia being transmuted into
the appearance of an old settled coun
try surprisingly fast. The farmers are
rejoicing In full graneries, but deplore
the depressed price which every arti
cle bears in the market.
Tecumseh has improved with the
improvements In Johnson county.
Business blocks, churches,, court
house, beautiful ; residences, shade
trees, &c., can now be seen where two
years ago none were scarcely thought
of. We find here two good hotels
the Sherman Hou3o and the Pacific
House. Mr. Tierney is the proprietor
of the former, and knows just how to
run a good hotel. His house is full,
being well patronized by the traveling
public to whom he renders entire sat
isfaction. Messrs. Rhodes & Tingle
and Mr. John GrafT.. E. A. Graves,
Capt Bryant, Buck & White, B. F.

among her chief features of utility.
There Is no other town of importance
within twenty miles, which makes
Tecumseh the entreport for a large
section of country. The railroad pros
pects from the Nemaha Valley and
the B. Ft. K. & P., are flattering.

Jacob Rogers, proprietor of the
transfer and passenger business be
tween Brownville and the depot, is
deserving of commendation. The
traveling public say they are handled
as well between the depot and Brown
ville, as at any other point on the road.
Mr. Rogers has lately supplied this
point with one of the best passenger
wagons for muddy weather now in
use, made, in Milwaukee for his ex
press use, and procured by F. A. Fa-i

Prof. G. B. Moore, General Agent

Monteith's Physical and Interme
diate Geography, a copy of the Na
tional Fifth Reader (Revised Edition),
and a copy of Prof. Steele's Fourteen
Weeks Course In Natural Philosophy.
A careful perusal has convinced us
that these books are among the best
In use in our public schools. The
Professor is a thorough going school
book man, and the books he sells are
in general use in this part of the State.
By Invitation of II. B. Strong and
lady we accompanied them home
when at the Johnson County Fair last
week, and found them well situated
six miles down ' the Nemaha river
from Tecumseh. Mr. Strong's many
friends In this county will bo glad to
learn that he has one of the best
water powers in the State improved,
with a grist and saw mill thereto at
tached. The head-water is twelve
feet, and turns an overshot wheel
fourteen feet in diamerer. His mill
turns out about two tun of very fine
flour daily. The property is estimated
at $10,000, and in our opinion it Is well
worth the money.

Sound Advice to Republicans.
Glex Rock, Oct. 7, 1SG9.
'Mr. Editor: Since the action of our
County Convention, and the failure of
the Democrats to call one, (which is a
virtual concession that they cannot
meet us In a fair field and an open
fight;) it appears that a few Democrat
ic wire-workers and wre-headed Re
publicans have gotten up a ticket for
themselves composod of themselves
christained the "People's Ticket."
The sublime self-appreciation of these
gentlemen .in1 voluntarily .offering
themselves as just the thing, so much
needed, as well as the bold impudence
of their christening, would furnish a
parallel forlhe jokes of a nursery, were
there not connected with It an at
tempt at a gross and palpable fraud.
In order to view this thing proper
ly, let us glance at the antecedents of
the two tickets : ',
The Republican Convention com
posed of delegates from primary meet
ings ail over the county, after due
notice put in nomination a ticket for
which they ask the support of the par
ty. No unfairness is charged no
charge of the kind could be sustain
ed. The usages of the party were
strictly conformed to in their action.
The candidates are men of standing
and character ; perhaps, not in every
case, just the man that every individ
ual Republican would have selected,
yet one and all good and true men.
They are just what they hold them
selves forth to be, true and loyal Re
publicans. They come to us endorsed
and recommended as worthy of our
support, by a Convention of our poli
tical frionds, as Intelligent and respec
table as any. ever assembled in our
County. Shall we support them ?
The other ticket, as I have said, is
self-constituted. A portion . of the
names upon it, it is known, failed of
of success in our Convention; there
they claimed to be simon-pures, and
stood in. honor pledged to abide its
action. A portion have, heretofore,
acted with the Republican party ; but
in its ranks they were not appreciated
as highly as they thought they deserv
ed to be. A portion are Democrats,
and in their proper element. It is a
union of "Bilfil and black George,"
the "Puritan and the black -leg," ap
parently, but in reality, a purely Dem
ocratic Ticket. We had as well rec
ognize the fact that they have desert
ed us In the midst of battle, as to await
a fuller demonstration at the election.
They have gone ; it is our business to
give them a traitors reward.
Party usage requires that we shall
abide by the action of our Conventions,
legitimately expressed. Success could
never bo attained without a rigid ob
servance of this cardinal principle.
A majority must control and our in
dividual preferences must yield an ac
quiescence. . . i
Again, is it not better as a matter of
policy, if party usage did not require
it, that we support a ticket composed
of avowed political friends ; than one
composed, in part at least, of avowed
political enemies, and the remainder
standing, dagger in hand, ready to
stab our party organization in. the
dark? That we support a ticket per
sonating all we have held dear in pol
icy for the last ten years, than this
non-descript, yclept the "People's
They come before us on false pre
tences: under the assumption, that
they have thus been put forward by
the people irrespective of and in op
position to all party organizations ;
which is untrue. They come before
us conceding Senatorial, Representa
tive and other honors to nominal Re
publicans; while, mark you, Demo
crats, unkempt, and using regular
JetTDavi3 eye water, are apportioned

amount of patronage. Daily, ct id

sinecures, while Bratton and the wool
dyed bear of the valuables. Daily &
Co., the pottage Bratton & Co., the
celt If such an arrangement could
be successful, would it not, think you,
be dog cheap ?
Soberly, does not every man see that
the election of this Apaloosa ticket,
if not in its constituents entirely Dem
ocratic, would innure to the benefit of
that party ? That giving a portion of
the County offices, or any one County
office, to the opposition is just iu that
ratio precisely furnishing our enemies
weapons with which to defeat us In
the future? That by supporting this
ticket he impairs his own party stand
ing, his chance of preferment, and
commit an offence against hla own
In conclusion, Mr. Editor though
I have in a rambling and hurried man
ner said but little of what I wish to
say I will add that "party require
ments are seldom slighted without
detriment to great. interests, and that
thi3 Ajmloosa ticket constitutes an
Asses Bridge upon which disaffected
Republicans may pass over into the
ranks of the Democratic party ; but

effect it, wear the brand of Cain. They
shall be marked men. So may it be,
