riDDLESTICKS" 1IARI FEOH,
A fellow writes to the Omaha Herald
from this county, tnd signs himeult
'Fidelia" (avulgarism of "fiddlesticks"),
and he proceeds to tell all about the re
cent election and the Republican conven
ion, and other things, which he knows as
much about as he does about "the man
in the moon." He writes flippantly
about "rings" and "bolters," and about
individuals of whom he knows nothing.
He endeavors to create a feeling of dis
satisfaction anions? Republicans by rmk-
inir incorrect assertions ; but he will find
he has his hands full if he attends to
the Democratic party of this county,
without meddling with and misrepre
senting the doings of Republican con
ventions. The facts are although we
have said but little about the recent con
vention or the election that the Repub
lican County Convention in this countj
was one of the fairest and fullest every
vote beiner caet that ever was held in
tbft countv. and we have every reason to
believe that the nominees gave generaf
satisfaction. Of course men have their
preferences, and some one must always
be disappointed ; but in the recent con
vention here, there wa3 no issuo made
for or against any particular interest, and
the man who attempts to create dissatis
faction between his fellow men, simply
that he may be counted as a successful
meddler, may well hign himself "Fiddle
sticks." The Republicans of Cass have
completely "soured" on democratic in
terference, and they prepose hereafter to
manage their own affairs without con
sulting "Fiddlesticks" or any other
would-be meddler, as the recent election
demonstrated. There is a principle yet
to contend for by Republican?, which
"Fiddlesticks" democrats would b very
much pleased to have forgotten, but
which cannot and will not be lost sight
of yet these many years at least not
while the "democrat" of war times stands
before the people asking to be placid in
office instead of a Republican. Try
some other chute, "Fiddlesticks;" for
you have failed in this.
BEKSIBLE WORDS ABOUT ADTER
The following is from the financial ar
ticle of the New York Journal of Com
merce, and we commend it to every busi
ness man in this vicinity for a careful pe
rusal and due consideration. It is a fact
worthy of note that most of the shrewd
business men of the United States are
returning to the old method of liberal
newspaper advertising, after having tried
the drummer method and found that it
did not bring trade proportionate to the
expense when compared with newspaper
"People who sit nervously in counting
houses, or behind their goods, waiting
for customers to take them by storm,
and making no effort to let the world
know the bargains they have to offer,
will find the teasou very unpropitious.
Many of those who spent large sums in
hiriDg drummers and paying for other
well known appliances of trade, have ef
fected large tales but swallowed up too
large a share of the receipts in such
enormous attendant expenses. The best
remuneration has been found by those
who have returned to more legitimate
old fashioned methods of pushing their
business. We say it, not situ ply because
we are interested in this line of expendi
ture, but as our best advice to all who
wish to be enterprising and to secure
a larger custom, there is nothing now so
effective to this end as judicious advertis
ing. A little advertising may be like a
fantle touch of the whip to poor Dob
in's horse "a mercy thrown away ;
but a liberal, outlay is almost certain to
bring it in a large return, and this will
last even beyond the current season.
AVe do not believe that any one who has
valuable service or desirable property to
offer can fail of reaping a rich harvest
by continous advertising on a large scale. "

THE FIRE FIEND.
Terrible Prairie Fires Reported Loti
Destructive prairie fires have been
ragirg in all parts of the West, and Gage
county has suffered, among others. The
continued warm weather had .so dried
the gTass that a Fpark was all that was
necefsary to start a flame, which before
the driving south winds of last week,
was liable to become a terrible engine of
On Friday of last week a fire btarted
on the south Mile of the Iilue, which
travelled rapidly to the river, edJ up its
course in a northwestern direction, as
far as Cub creek. Opposita town it
got into the hay stacks of Mr. II. L
Smith and G. P. Whitoinb, uUtroying
about ton tons belonging to the former,
and some seventy tons owned by the
latter. Mr. James Marsh saved his
hay, and stables by dint of hard work on
the part of himself and a dozen others.
On the outside we have referred to the
very destructive fire on Mud creek. We
do not hear that it reached any further
to the north of that line.
ON INDIAN CREEK.
Last week Wednesday, Indian creek
wad vUitcd by a fire, and several suffer
ed lo"s of property. Mart Thompson
lost 75 bushels of wheat in the stack, all
his straw, and considerable timber,
through which the fire ran.
John Rarnhouse lost about all his
wheat and hay, how much we have not
Mr. Crossley suffered to the extent of
35 tons ot hay.
Henrv Brick lost all his wheat. It is
reported here that three children living
somewhere between Indian creek and

there parents were at t-hu.ch, but we
have been unable to learn the particu
lars of the terrible calamity, if true.
ON CCli CREEK.
The Sunday fire reached Cub Creek,
and lashed by the fierce wind, wrought
much destruction alone that stream.
Thos. Freeman had 500 bushels of
oats and barlev. which were totally
burnt, together with about 3,000 feet of
fencing, and much ot his timber on tne

who suffered no loss, saved their houses,

On the lower Blue, we do not hear of
any damage, except to C. xoung, who
lost his hay.
The loss sustained by this sweep will
be severely felt in many quarters, while
it teaches the lesson of precaution to
those who make no preparation for these
annual visitations. Hedge rows, and
even creeks, will not stop such fares as
these, and plowing seems the only resort.
The damage to timber is much to be
reeretted. On all the creeks where the
fire raged, the young timber was either
totahly ruined or much injured, a calam
ity felt by all farmers in a prairie county.

Large quantities of cutstono have arrived

At last a suit has been brought against
a railroad company, based on the right
of a person who nays for a first-class
ticket to ride in a first-class car. The
custom lias always been to store a gen
tleman, unaccompanied by a lady, not
withstanding he may hold a first-class
ticket, into a car crowded with a hetero
geneous mass of recking flesh and to
bacco odor, to the great discomfort of
those who do not use tobacco in any
of its form. Railroad men seem to ar
gue, from the fact that some smoke and
chew tobacco that no man is averse to
sitting in tobacco juice up to his ankles,
and to have the rest of his body envel
oped in a cloud ot smoke, come men
have not attained that degree of endur
ance, however. Among them is iJen
jaiain II. Rugg, who took passage on
the Cincinnati & Muskineum Railroad
in July, 1871. Having paid for a first
class ticket, he naturally sought the first
olass car, but found its doors locked.
The other car was filled with second-
class passengers and smoke. Being un
well, he declined entering the car, but
waited until the conductor made his ap
pearance. Of him he demanded ad
mittance to the first-class car. Admit
tance was not only refused, but the con
ductor put him off the train. For dama
ges resulting, the complainant asks $5,
000. Cincinnati Commercial.
NuiuskIIiik Through ths Mails.
The importation of valuable articles
through the mails and evasion of the
Customs Revenue laws has been the sub
ject of consideration at the Treasury
Department during the past week. To
what extent the Government has been
defrauded it is impossible to say, but
the practice of sending diamonds by let
ter from Europe to this country, it is
known, has existed for some time past.
The Secretary of the Treasury will sub
mit to the Postmaster General, in a few
days, a system of regulations for the pro
tection of the Government. It is pro
posed that wherever foreign mails a.c
received such letters as contain more
than written matter shall be retained,
and the party addressed informed that a
letter awaits personal examination at the
Post-office. If the letter is to be for
warded to an interior city the Postmaster
of that city is to be instructed not to de
liver the same until he is satisfied tint
the contents are not subject to the tariff.
By the strict observance of this plan the
present sy.-tem of evading ih riMmo
law will be broken up.

Foundation of Colleges.
The first college in the American col
onies was that at Cambridge, founded in
1638. The first Commencement was
held in October, 1642, when nine stu
dents were admitted to the degree of
Bachelors. It took its name, Harvard,
from the principal benefactor. For more
than sixty years, gentlemen in Connecti
cut sent their sons to Cambridge lor an
education; but in 16'J9, the clerey in
Connecticut nominated ten of their num
ber as trustees to form a college. These
met in New Haven in 1700, and formed
a society which was to consist of eleven
clergymen and a rector, for the purpose
ot establishing and governing a college.
A charter of incorporation was granted
by the Legislature in October, 1701.
Mr. 1 lerson, ot Kilhngworth, was ap
pointed the first rector, and during his
life he instructed the students in that
town. The first Commencement was in
September, 1702. On the death of Mr.
Pierson in 1705, the students were placed
at Milford and Saybrook, under different
instructors, and so continued until 1 i 16,
when New Haven was made the perma
nent seat ot the college. it is called
Yale College, after the name of one of
the principal benefactors.
