We have a word to say to our citizens,
not by way of condemning but merely
as a Fusgestion, that, when immigrants
pass through our city on thoir way to

let us not hesitate nor weary in givinc:
them all the information they desire in
regard to our country. A word of en
couragement, spoken in time, micrht be
the instrument of bringing many more
to our State. We should not be so en
tirely absorbed in our bu-iness that, when
an immigrant asks us in regard to our
soil, climate, our future prospects, or
what not, we thould give them a
hasty answer and pass on. The itumi
grant wants encouragement, and we
should give it to them at all times. Thev

we do not stop long enough to cive them
an encouraging word when they ak ;t.
how must we expect them to got it?

La-t night a number of our citizens
assembled at Clark & Piummcr's Hall
for the purpose of organiz ng a Lodge
of the Sons of Temperance. Nothing
was done further than discussing the
propriety of having such an organization
in our place, and other matters of iuterest
pertaining to the same. This Lodge, as
we understand it, is not to coflict with
the Order of Good Templars in any
respect, but simply to have an organiza
tion of this kiul in this place to still
further the cause of Temperance. Its
terms are liberal, and its workings of the
most systematic kind. An officer will be
here in a few weeks to organize, perma
nently, the Lodge. We wish our citi
zens who have the matter in hand success
in their undertaking.
The freight and passenger business
over the B. & M. in Nebraska is increas
