A VISIT TO ST. JOII.VM
At one o'clock, prrnisly, on Wednesday the
88th day of lust month, we straddled a nngof
the Mustang order, And wrro torm jolting
westward, on our way to a town that boasts
of the reverential nnme if 8t. John'B. It
etug the first time we had ventured outside
the corporate limits of Iakota City, uulees to
cross over iuio Iowa, we dntertniu-) 1 to nj
tiee things 00 oor way. We were purtiaular
ly impresxed with tha lieauty, of the country,
the richuena of the suit, tho abundance of
timber, aud the evident nvtiks of thrift and
Industry, everywhere discernahlo. At a dis
tance of three miles, lrng measure, aud an
hours'e leisure jogging, we reached the town
Logan is situated oa the Missouri bottom
alongside the river, lias a good hotel, a saw
and grist mill, and hears unmiHtakable sins
of hiving been knocked lu tho head There
was time when Logun was thejjt.iwn of this
county; but bid times operato 1 on it woefully
Leaving this place we bore to tho Northwest,
for a mile or in ire, aud were soon in the
rjeiijhboihoo I of the Logan Timber. Hero a
taw mill was ruling and blowing at a furious
ra'.o, and men were .busying themselves in
ivigeting logs intuit arid lumber out of it
There we altered onr course and went aa Bear
)y west as the curves and angles in the road
would permit. On either Ide were au'ig
h.iusaa on every llf mile of ground, up and
down the bottom, aa far as the e"e could
reach. Standing in the rear, or oil lo one side
of eearly al', ware stacks f hay and grain ;
and each houae had ts rrib of coru hun ly la
whiih Ibe bujhols Oi.uld be caiintod by the
hundred. Hre was the first wheut we saw
in the Te rrltoty we took (mius rains ta in
quire Into tho renult of the erop nn 1 found
that spring wheat does exceedingly well
The lowekt average yield we heard of was
furty buthcls to the tors, and lh hi'umi,
I ft y three. We heard of but one man that
raised winter wheat, but wore unable to learn
what eureeaa he had. The current opinion
Is tba winter wheat would not thrive Well, in
cooeiijooe of the bard frosts, and the land
being stripped of snow by the wild winda of
a Nebraska winter. Nevertheless, we think
good crops of winter wheat can be raised, If
the seed grain ia plowed into the ground to
the depth of four or fire inches. Thia wou i
protect the roots of Ibe wheat from exposure
(0 the frosts and air, when the ground up
heaves in the spring.-

for that purpose. It is not a fair shake to
have all the edifices erected and appropria

the Platte. Properly speaking. Dakota City
is more centrally located than Itellevtie, and
justioe to Northern Nebraska de.nan Is that
thia should be the point selected aa the site
N e have plenty atone, and plenty timber
hard wood timber, too, and since not one
dollar haa ever been appropriated for the

never received a dnllar'a benefit from appro

thia thing r.s a right llollovue, from its prox
