From a private letter froui F. 31. Wolf,
Ksq., who has established himself in the
legal business at Crete, wc arc permitted
to extract the following item of interest
in regard to that young city and its many
advantages :
"Crete is a fine town, of about 5(56

and other manufacturing facilities ; and
is surrounded by one of the finest fann

Last Tuesday, Judge Dillon delivered
an elaborate and exhaustive opinion in

Ye.-terday we met a homcsteader-at
one of our stores, who said that he came
to this city five years ago with less than
$'J- in his pocket, and was now worth
$3.1 nh) if he was worth a cent.
The remark was sugcestive to us, for
it indicated to our mind what thousands
of men, now in Eastern States and cities,
htrugglins for daily existence, might do
for themselves and families, if they only
would 'strike out' bravely for this west
ern land.
The gentleman referred to said that
during the first year of his residence
here he worked very hard ami under
went considerable privation. After that,
however, he always had plenty to eat,
plenty to wear, a comfortable home, and
in fact, all that was essential to the well
being of bimelf and family. The man
thought the best of it nil wa3 that he
ftxwj the satisfaction of being his own
.master and knowing that he is independ
ent and his family provided for iu the
.event of his sickness or death.
This man, with anything like careful
.management, cannot well help continu
ing to improve his circumstances from
year to year. His farm is all the time
increasing in value, his block is multi
plying, his young forest of native trees
are growing while he sleeps, and his
wealth is increasing aside from what he
may add to his store by his personal la
. bor and forethought.
How much better this than the daily
struggle, constant apprehension, and
hand-to mouth existence of a laborer for
That man who has a home of his own,
who feels that he owes his bread to the
favor of no capitalist, lias the enjoyment
of a sort of manhood of which the pale
operatives and mechanics of the East
have little comprehension.
Net all, of course, may do as well
as the man we have cited; but here,
where homes are free and labor no dis
. credit, a man's success is only to be
measured by the individual's persistency
and capacity. Sioux City Journal.

Th St. Joseph Union, of 3Iay 4th,
has the following in relation to the man
Sherman who is now in the care of
Sheriff Johnson:
"A 3-ear or more since, pabulum for
gossips was furnished by the celebration
of the nuptials of William J. Sherman
and 3Iary Thornton. Sherman was a
young man of good address, said to have
descended from a rcspectible family, and
the bride was the daughter of 3Iadamo
Hannah Thornton, proprietress of -the
well-knwn Planter's House, in this city.
At the time the marriage was consuma
ted Sherman was bar-tender at this es
tablishment. Everything was generally understord
to be lovely until quite recently, when
for real or fancied causes a separation
occurcd. Meanwhile Sherman was one
of the proprietors of the Casino, on
Market Square. Of late he has fre-
nuently been registered at the' Recorders
oHice, and lias contributed liberally to
the police fund. One week age he went
to I'lattsrnouth, Nebra.-ka, and the rest
of the story is told by the Plattsmouth

visiting Wilmington, N. C-, stopped at
one ot the tirst-elass hotels. At the
breakfast table he gave an elaborate or

"two soft boiled egs." Sambo went
off to the kitchen, but soon returned and
asked: ''Mass' Boss, did you want dem

drummer, "I want them soft-boiled."
"All right, sar," and off he trotted
again. In a few moments he loomed in
again, and remarked, in a most pursua

made for the few and not for the tnany
a law was passed in the good town of

the early risers, people who worked for
a living, from obtaining the best of the

the end of the world is postponed till

glorious advent have made several post

world has heen expected by a lar.e elas.s
of Christians from the third century
down to our times. I lurinej the last gen

of reviving this often disappointed ex
pectation. The Adventists have certain
ly heen mistaken hitherto. Their ap

track? Will their expected advent ever

when it fulfills it.s course and the sun

An eminent medical authority decides
that books handled by persons recover
ing from malignant fevers, frequently be
come charged with the germs of the dis
ease, and ought to be burned. As it
would be profitable to burn nine-tenths

judicious care in selecting the literature
for convalescents will avoid any real loss
to the family library, through following
the doctor's advice.
Science is playing very odd prnks,
nowadays, not only in the more recon

from the tomb to day, and once more
take part in wordly affairs, it would be
nearly as astonishing for him to hear
that billiard balls can be niadj of a com

which, according to Professor Sceley, is
a fact.

The Union Pacific Bailroad Company
is budding several iron furnaces, on a new
principle, for smelting the wonderful de
posits of iron ore in Wyoming Territory.
The foreman of the Union Company's
sltpps has invented a smoitiffg furnace
Sii'xch dispenses with the fan blower.
The blast of air is obtained by injecting
a jet of steam into the interior of the
upper portion of the furnace. The vacu
um created by the steam draws a blast
throuch the fire ano" ore below with tre
monduous force, securing the intense
heat necessary for smelting the ore. The
fiiniaco has been running successfully,
several weeks, and others are in course
of erection. Foundries arc also being
erected, and the company expect soon to
supply itself with a large portion of its
castings at much less cost than they have
heretofore been able to obtain from Mis

.Supper or not partake of it. it would
make no difference to him. The orator
