March brewed beer is said to be the
best of any brewed through the year,
and as it gets fit to Use about the first
of May, it has passed into a custom
with brewers Cn or about that tiute to
send out to each and all of their cus
tomers' a barrel or two of extra strong,
foaming, March brewed beer, called
Buck beer, and the German legend runs
In this wise: A party of jolly Teu
tons had long been enjoying themselves
drinking much beer, ori pleasant May
day, in old Germany. After many
parting cup's, they finally essayed to go
home. One of the number, feeling
lnore beery than the rest, ran his head
against a stone wall, literally butting
it, sheep fashion. His companions
asked him what lie was doing, when he
replied: Nothing, only that old Buck
went by and kicked me, didn't you see
him tl id n't he kick you? Since that
time this beverage Las been called

Schaller had designed coming over

them Mr. Fletcher and ins bride, mar

that a large number of the right kind
of immigrants will arrive this season
from Great Britain, whose capital to
each family will ruii on an average
from 400 to G00, and one large farm

Nebraska with his seven sons, who will
bring about 40,000 gold, to the aggre

We this week visited the stock of
Mr. Hugh Orr, at the farm of S. L.
Thomas, near Pour Mile Creek. They
are pure blooded Devons, and really as
fine animals of the breed as we ever

are various opinions as to the merits of
the Short Horn and the Devon breeds
of cattle, and considerable rivalry be
tween the breeders of each variety."
Our friends, Orr and Thomas are en
thusiastic Devon lovers; and for the

some of this stock that is, to cross
with Texas herds they are no doubt
the In st and most suitable breed.

From The Omaha Republican.
Winter lay dying, wild the wind-harps walled.
By fitful March their tuneful chords were
From helpless hands an ley sceptre fell
The chill reign ceased, and April softly wept.
The few dead leaves that clung to withered
Rustled a reuuiMu ns they fluttering fell ;
Glowing w ith inward life, on bare, brown boughs,
Unfurling buds with leaf and blossom swell.
The waters wakening from their wintry sleep.
By Wooing winds, released from icy chains,
Fountains and lakes, rills, buoks and river.? glad,
"Withlsilvery sounds, unite in dulcet strains.
Soft, fleecy clouds float in an azure sky.
Like hclmltss ships sailing o'er shoreless seas.
Seeking no harbor, for no haven bound.
But drifting ouward with eachpassing breeze
The Joyous robins chirp with twittering notes
A rapturous prelude to the music rare
Of the wild, wordless, matchless melodies
Of thrush and oriole, soon to fill tho air.
On woody slopes, deep fringed with velvet moss
W here sunny lights and flickering shadows
Anemones and odorous violets
Embalm the air with incense pure and sweet.
Swift flies the shuttle of tin Jnolseless loom.
Where viewless fairies ply with tlngers licet,
Weaving, In varied tints of living green,
A grassy carpet 'ncaih our wandering foe.
Caressing zephyrs kiss the trembling leaves
As May trips lightly o'er her path of flowers.
Merry with music, sweet with breath of bloom.
On joyous wings swift fly the golden hours.

are fully convinced tnat all the most
impracticable aud unpopular features
of the civil service rules were devised
or suggested by him, and that civil ser1
vice reform is likely to be the gainer
by Ins resignation. In fact his resig
nation is a matter entirely personal to
himself, and not of the slightest con
sequence either to the civil service, the

himself regrets the unwarrantable

Since my introduction to Barnum's
female gymnast a gnoddooklng,. well
formed mother of a family, who walks
about unflinchingly . with men and
boys on her shoulders find carries a
300 pound gun as easily as the ordinary
woman carries the clothes-basket I am
persuaded that "the coming woman,"
like brother Jonathan will "lick all cre
ation." In that good time, voman will
have her rights because she will have
her muscle. Then if there are murders
and playful boatings between husbands
nnd wives, the wives will enjoy all tho
glory of crime. What an outlook! And
what a sublime conso'ation to the pres
ent enfeebled race of wives that are
having their throats cut and their eyes
carved out merely because their biceps
have not gone iuto training! Barnum,s
female gymnast is an example to her
sex. What woman has done, woman
may do again. Mothers, train up your
daughters in the way they should fight,
and when they are married they well
not depart this life. God is on the side
of the stoutest muscle, as well as of the
heaviest battalions. It is perfectly
useless for Miss Anthony to talk about
the equality of the sexes as long as a
