This is W. F. Chapin, formerly of

If they can mak it a success it will be

We see by the "Turf, Field and
Farm," that our old friend, Ben. Akers,
of Leavenworth is in trouble. The old
Jennison charges are renewed and put into
the shape of sworu affidavits. If Mr.
Jennison 8 charges are proven true it
will drive Akers from the trotting field
and ppoil the chances of three of his
best horses.
Farmers and Grunge men, stick to
your original idea, let tariffs and politi

yourselves some good. Once drop your
conservative, co-operative plan, and go
into any political arrangement that prom
ises you success, and our word for it you
will be ground between the upper and
nether millstone, as to your pockets, and
your rights and interests be left jim

When you transplant trees, he sure to
shorten them in. The roots should not
be shortened in, but the tops
shortened in. ' ' . "
One year-agU I transplanted large ap
ple trees. Some of them eight years old,
and large. I cut off the tree about fiv
feet from the root, and every branch
from the body. So that when planted
they resembled a row of stakes. Every
one of them lived, aud grew well, and
now have beautif ul tops.

As many of our brethren fthe weekly
press decline an ext h .rrpe with the dai
lies of (Jniftha, w would point them to
the Council H'uffs Aip-'i ''. as ha best
paper for news, political and buxincs
matter published on the tipper Missouri.
The dispatches t.f the Nonpareil are al
ways free of those glaring errors so com
mon in other papers, and the reports of
market are attended to by competent
persons. The Nonpareil can be had at
any station west of this on Union Pacific
at the name time Omaha papers arrive.
Ourbrethren will find the change from
the Omaha papers o th Nonpareil as
pleasant as the change from stotry boots
to comfortable slippers. J1 turnout Tub
e have received the Turf, Field
and Farm, for March 28th, and are very
glad to nee its familiar faeq. tnce more

They are in a bad fix in New York on
light. All the gas laborers have
"fitruck." A telegram April 6th, says :
The city below Grand street is in total
darkness. Orders have been sent to
private consumers to turn off their gas
so that the streets and public offices may
be sopplied. The Stadt Theater was
left in darkness in the midst of a pei
formaqce, and the uewspapcr and ex
press offices wore using lamps and can
dles to eke out wi;h.
It seems almost impossible to get the
positive and true account of the hite
changes in the Postal law. If, as re
ported, it does away with free exchanges
and free1- connty circulation, it is a blow
at the weaker class of papers, and a di
rest stab at the 'ree circulation of intel-
igence and news among the people.
It is a measure tending to increase th
emoluments of the rich an 1 powerful,
and retard the progress of the weak and
helpless. It will cut short the means of
information of the small county papers
without rsally benefitting the great dai
lies, bt?cau-ie, when their news sources
are cut off they will become tame and
less thought after. -
It 6eems a foolish and useless piece of
work, whatever shape the bill finally
turns out to be in.
The steamship Atlantic, of the White
Star line, from Liverpool, March 20th,
for New York, ran ashore the 2d day of
April, on Meagher's Head, about twenty
miles from Halifax. She bad on board
ovr one thousand men, women and
children. Three hundred were saved.
The disaster is traced to the carrying of
insufficient coal for a voyage of morethau
ten or twelve days. The steamer struck
about two o'clock in the morning, and

they are full of beef beef. . Our friend

some cf the passengers who were re
cued, afterwards perished from the e
feet of fright and exposure. A large
portion of the enrgo will be saved.
Harrowing details of the scenes en
acted on the fated ship, are given.
Most of the women were drowned in
their birtLs the heavy seas which con
stantly poured over the vjssel, prevent
ing them from reaching the deck. One
woman, who rook to the rigging and was
lashed there to keep from being swept
away, froze to death.
Ouly one child was saved, a boy of
twelve years ; his parents and a young
brother were drowned. Ona man was
rescued with both legs broken. Many
who had life buoys, by reason of their
not beipg properly adjusted, were
drew aed. ' .
Civil Sarvica :sri
Washington, D. C, April 4.
There i not the slightest foundation
for the a sertiou of a Liberal journal as
to an abandonment or change iu the p'an
adopted for civil 6ervic-.' reiorm. Ex
Senator Cattell, of New Jersey, as the
6emor member of the Advisory Board,
takes the pl;ce cfMr. Curtis as chair
man. Mr. Josep!) liil has not inti
mated atiy wi-h to resign. It is not yet
known who will fill the vacancy caused
bv M. Curtis' retirement, but a leading

whom the pub'ic would bve confidence.
As to the failure to make the plau

members of the Treasury Examining

It "is fun to see the Ooiaki Herald
diddle along behind the Chicago Times
and Tribune. To savt their precious
railroad monopolies, these fine thinkers
have suddenly promulgated the theory
that it is the tariff that makes railroad
freights so hith, and very coolly p.-opo
se to the farmers to let up on their
grievances about the discrimination on
freights, and go for a r?peal of the tariff
laws. Pretty shrewd move on the ptrt
of the Times and tribune, and came
near winning
