of the State Society of Agriculture,

The Nebraska City Press says :
Had the Fair been a failure it could
not Have teen laid to the officers of
the Board.' They did all that living
practical men could do, to makn the
exhibition just what was expected of
it. An Agricultural Society that has
for its President such a man as Col.
Furnas, has great reason to congratu
late itself, He is not only a thorough
business man, but an accomplished
horticulturist and more or less con
versed with Agricolture and stoci
raising. . The Secretary, Charley
Walker, was on tho ground at all
hours, ever ready and willing to ac
commodate every one that had btsi-
ness with him. The General Super
intendent, Oliver Bannon, worked as
no man works unless his whole heart

Col. Robert W. Furnas justly holds
a leadincr n not tne nrst position

any, deserve so much praise for steady

We take care to award Col b urnas
all credit for his ceasless exertions
against many opposing obstacles iu

As its President, aided by the active
efforts of Mr. Charles H. Walker, Its
Secretary, Col. F. has pushed Agricul

exquisite fragrance. It has received

The Honey Emptying Machine.
The above engraving represents the
honey emptying machine, devised in
Germany, as now improved and used
quite extensively iu this country.
It consists of an outer frame or tub,
with a revolving frame within, having
two sides covered with fine wire cloth
through which the honey passes from
the comb on the inside and against
the wire case, being thrown out by
centrifugal force. By the use of this
machine the comb may be emptied
and returned to the hive, saving much
time for the bees", in comb building,
increasing the honey collected during
the rich honey harvests, besides often
affording empty cells for the queen
when the colony would be otherwise
greatly weakened, as a surplus of hon
ey often occupies room that should be
devoted to breeding. Sealed brood is
not injured, nor will eggs or pollon be

Mr. Cartwright was introduced, and
was received with many expressions
of applause. He had been called a
strong m.m, but to-day he felt weak
as a child, to overcome was he by this
manifestation of the Idve and esteem
of his fellow Christians. He was the
oldest preacher in the Methodist
Church, now engaged in the ministry.
For sixty years lie had labored for
Lord and Master, ana during that
time he had only received at three
times the amounts allowed him by
the church. He had the oldest
fireacher's wife in the world, and had
i.ved hapily with her for sixty years.
He had seven children, and sixty
grand and great-grand children. He
was born in Virginia, and had been a
citizen of the West from the iime he
was six years old, and now he is
eighty-five years. He had no langu
age to describe the situation of his
country at the time. He had suffered
in body, mind and purse. lie had

A Warning from the Prison
Charles Orme, recently executed for
murder at Stroudsburg. Pa., attributed
all his sufferings and crimes to the
use of intoxicating honors. Prior to
his execution lie sent the following
letter to the Philadelphia Inquires,
with a request that it be published in

my earnest prayer to God is, that no
one who ever knew may ever hear

people may suffer on my account."

gratify your own evil appetite?

surprising that I should try to save
others from the same fate? I know
that I have not the talent or educa

but I can tell what the use of intoxi

Care ot 1200(4 and Shoes.
Boots and shoes, if taken care of
properly, will generally last two or
three times longer than they usually
do, and, at the same time, fit the feet
far more satisfactory, and keep them
dry and more comfortable in wet and
cold weather. The upper leather
should be kept soft and pliable, while
the teles need to bo bard, tough and
impervious in water. The first thing
to be done with any new pair of shoes
for farm use is to set each one on a
platter or an old plate, and pour on
boiled linseed oil sufficient to fill tho
vessel to the upper edge of the soles.
Let the leather absorb as much oil a
it will for eight hours. Linseed oil
should not be applied to the upper
leather, as it will soan become dry,
rendering the leather hard and tough;
but if the soles be saturated with this
oil, it will exclude dampness and en
large the pegs, so that the sole will
never get loose from the upper leath
er. If the shoes be sewed, the linseed
oil will preserve the thread from rot
ting. Now, wet the upper leather
thoroughly when the boots or shoes
are to be put on the feet, so that those
parts which are tight may render a
trifle, and thus adapt the form of the
shoe to the foot far more satisfactorly
than when the upper leather Is not
wet. Keep them on the feet until tho
itr.ther is nearly dry. Then give the
upper leader a thorough greasing
with equal parts ot lird and tallow,
or with tailaw and neat's-foot oil. If
shoes be treated in this manner, and
and a row of rcand-headed shoe nails
be driven around the edge of the soles,
they will wear like copper, and al
ways set easy to the feet. Boots and
shoes should be treated as suggested,
aud worn a little several months be
fore they are put to daily service.
This is the true way to save your shoe
