A HAXDSOMK TRIBUTE.
The Democrats did tbe right thing
to-nigbt. Neville was called to the
chair and Gibson took the floor. He
stated that tbe Democrats had watched
Nance carefully. They had watched
him as one political opponent watches
another; they would criticise him, but
there was no chance. We had been
fair, honest. Jos t. They said much more
paying him one of the finest tributes
ever received by ' a public man. Tbe
document was signed by every
of the House. Nance was called on
and came forward. (By the way. Bear
had offered a resolution presenting him
with the chair he had honored, which
was unanimously agreed to.) His voice
trembled, and it was evident that
Nance meant these words: "Gentle
men of the House of Representatives:
This is the proudest moment of my
life, and for the honor just bestowed
upon me, I thank you more than I can
tell. The fact that this compliment
comes from my political opponents
makes it doubly appreciative. It comes
from a source from which I had no
right to expect aught but severe crit
icism, had I erred. I took the position
to which you elected me with fear and
trembling, but to your generous assist
ance I owe whatever success I
have attained. To the members of
this House, personally, I would say
that I entertain the kindliest feeling
toward each and every one ef you, and
never shall I forget the memories that
cluster around this legislative session.
No matter what my future may be; let
my career lead me where It may, I
never shall feel prouder than I do to
night. I thank you,' I doubly thank
you." , -
8uch were his remarks as near as I
could catch them. I have ooly to say
that so far as my observation goes, the
tribute was wel! deserved. Bee.
In the Omaha Heraid of Feb. 17th,
speaking of the B. & IX. bill : the editor
says that Omiha interests were never
so seriously threatened by anything
than (as?) they have been by this
scheme to make the B. & M. a compet
ing Trunk Line of (with ?) the Union
Pacific Railroad for two hundred miles
east of Kearney Junction. Then fol
lows this remarkable sentence, "Lin
coln and the Southwest, as well as
Omaha and the Northwest are vastly
concerned in strengthening the hands
and laboring for the interests of the
Union PaciGc Railroad." If the effect
of the B. & M. bill which is now being
considered at Washington, would be
(as we believe it would) to make a com
peting line with the Union Pacific for
two hundred miles, we are at a loss to
understand how the interest of any
body but the U. P. rod could thereby
suffer. Omaha and tbo north has con
nection direct with the B. & M. line,
and would therefore have the advan
tage of this competition, and to tell
anybody south of the Platte River,
that another main line for business
competing with the U. P., and running
through the South Platte country.
would not be a benefit to that country
is to tell a starving man that bread
will not satisfy his hunger. -
The South Platte country would be
still more benefitted if every road con
necting with tho B. & M. could become
part of a through line also, and the
people of the South Platte waut that
if they can get it.
Bat if they cannot they will be
thankful for one such line as better
than none. The B. fc M. road was built
by the authority of Congress, under
Government supervision, and with the
express right to connect with theU. P.
and it now asks that Congress will en
force that right. The road was ex pen
sively constructed with the best ma
terial and heavy rails, because it was
a Government Road.
As against the claim, if there be any,
of other roads to connect with it un
der the provisions of the Pacific rail
road laws, it is said these other roads
are foreign to tnose laws, were not
built to get this connection, and have
no such claim on the B. & M, as the B.
&M. has on the U. P. Be this as it
may it shoald not bo allowed to blind
Nebraska to tho importance of having
two lines for two hundred miles if it
can get them and can get more. The
truth is the scheme to make the B. &
1L connect with all roads under the
Pacific R. R. laws as a condition of
allowing if to connect with the U. P.
under those laws is simply a Union
Pacific scheme to kill tho B. & M. bill.
and Jay Gould would be entitled to all
his reputation for ability in looking
after his own material interests, if he
had never done anything but make the
people of Nebraska, as represented in
the legislature, believe that it is not
for the interest of a State to have com
petine Trunk line of R. R. and to
maintain one great monopoly instead
of having such competition a3 the
Herald truly says this B. & M. bill
would give. It is singular that people
can be so deluded as some people have
been by the Union Pacific Railroad

Our public schools have been in full
operation all winter. Despite tho se
vere and inclement weather the attend
ance has been good.
The debating club or Lyceum of Fac
tory ville is at the present time in a very
flourishing state ; while the communi
ty at large takes much interest in this
institution, the more prominent actors
display more than common talent and
ability in speech and judgment.
Some of those who know, say tha
the Weeping Water Valley Old Bache
lors' Society, has more raembersjenroll-
ed than any like institution in the
State. Singular as this may appear a
fact it is, that marriageable young la
dies including young widows, can have
their choice out of nearly a hundred.
How is that for h'gh?
With the approach of spring our far
mers are making preparations for put
ting in crops. It is thought, however.
the area for small grain will be asm ill
one, as those myriads of unhatched
grassnoppers are causing much anxie
ty and fear amongst our soil tillers.
Well, time will show how large the
grasshopper crop will be.
ureat nocks or prairie chickens are
inhabiting the cornfields along the
banks of the Weeping Water, but it is
feared, that a great part of the coming
young brood will be destroyed by the
prairie fires in the spring.
.Lovers of wild ana romantic music
can have a rich treat by listening to
the free and unsolicited nightly con
certs of a large family of coyotes which
infest our neighborhood. Nothing like
it. Occasionally more.

At the Grasshopper meeting of Feb.
17th an idea vras advanced and gener
ally supported by the speakers present
that disturbance of the eggs in the fall,
and especially breaking up of the egg
sacks and scattering the eggs, thus ex
posing them to the action of the ele
ments would destroy their vitality so
that they would not hatch in the fol
lowing spring. From some experi
ments made by myself I was led to tbe
same conclusion, but now, after a more
thorough test experiment, I am forced
to abandon it.
In September, 1878, observing that
the hoppers had deposited their eggs
about as thickly as they could be
crowded in my garden paths, where
the earth was trodden hard and solid,
I took a hoe and gradually scraped
them out, thus breaking the sacks and
scattering the eggs on and near the sur
face, exposed to the f costs, sun, rain
After our meeting1 adjourned on the
17th. I took a magnifying glass and ex
amined the surface of the ground close
ly, and found no eggs. Tbe birds or
elements had evidently destroyed them.
But on moving the earth I found them
apparently as thick as I left them in
the fall from the surface to one or two
inches deep. The earth was very
light and full of them. I took from
those nearest the surface a hundred or
so and put them in a glass jar and plac
ed it in a warm room. On the 23d, six
days after, they commenced hatching,
and now, so far as I can see, all are
hatched out and full of life and activ
ity. They hare no food except as they
devour each other, of which I see do
signs as yet.
I propose to see how long they' will
live on nothing. A. L. C.
