ilie sun had kissed the nieadow-grat
And sijiped the sparklitiftr dew.
And d.;is:cs raised their dainty heads
To caich the rays Ua threw.
Far off were ficl li of waving corn ;
The meadows lay between ;
And I could h'-nr a f .inn-hoy's son,
Though now here to he seen.
lie san;j in ton"S so With-; :.nd gay
I pau ed to catch each word :
And ev'ry note came clear and sweet
As earol?d by a 1 ird :
Oh ! tlie winds did net Mow.
Though the leaves murmured low.
On u glorious Samnier-mondng ;
And the sun rose Prtplit
O'er the mounl.;ins' iii-;tjt.
E'en iho lowliest cot adorning.
And the lovi liest maid
Ia the h irhland or g'ad-;,
Willi her ba-ket and pail, c.-.inetrlpidiig
By t!ie sinln brook,

And from spriu-fs ia the vale waa tippine.

And lh m liden .'topped.
And the b'.ossom'' c: pped,

You are anxious to hear
What I said In l ei ear,
YV'hile a tear hi her bright eye spaiklod ;
Wl:a' she answered me,

While the Lrook only l.iuithed and darkled
But you never may know
What she whispered so low.

Un.-le Zeke, like the rest, was troubled
in his mind, but, unlike his fellows, lie
determined to waste no time in specula
tion, but to seek his information direct
from head. ;n:a tots. Prepared with half
a buthel of oytteis, as r.n excuse for con
versation, lie sought an interview with
Jlr. Smith, and boldly propounded his
'0.1 is' Smith, what you bin a-doiu to

"Why, Uncle Zeke, what do you want
to know for?"'
"Oh.nuilin, sar; sorter citrus like, llcarn
all de hoys talkin' "bout i' never see
ration like dat afore."'
"Well, Uncle Zeke, I can't very well
explain it to you; but I just advise you
don't go near that crib after dark, or yon
may see something you won't like." And
Uncle Zeke depaited, revolving many
things in his mind.
It was midnight the hour when
churchyards are tuid to yawn, not with
exhaustion, but returning animation. In
front of the enchanted coru-hous3 stood
Brother Ezekiel, a lengthy pole in his
hand and a capacious meal bag over hij
fchoulder. In silent meditation he stood
for some five minutes deliberating ou tho
best plan of attack. The great New found
land dog bounded toward him, evidently
ia lcjoiting welcome. Jitla from his
pocket the old man drew a savory bit of
fried bacon, which tiie faithless lios'eu
eagerly devoured. The reilection ended,
the dog lay contentedly on the ground
and watched the subsequent proceedings
with the air of a totally disinterested ob
server. " Clar to goodness, now," mutte red Un
cle Zeke, "vvish't I uu'stood 'bout dis ting.

Uncie Zeke, paused, scratc hed his head,
meditatingly, and then resumed his solil
oquy "Well, I declar", ef dis yere don' beat

Uncle Zeke threw his bag to the ground,
stepped to one side of the house, and with
his pole struck a sharp blow on the brass
knob nearest him. Nothing followed. lis

the house and repe ated his experiments

Uncle Zeke now drew from his pocket
a skeleton key, mounted the ladder, and
iu a trice had opened the padlock which
held the door.
"Dar, now, jus" "s I fought. De bos

The old dat key reached up and cau
tiously turned the handle. The door
opened a little, and, casting away all fear,
Uncle Zeke boldly reached for the other
knob to steady himself while he twung
bt.'ck the d- or.
Literally like a fla-di of lig!.t::mg the
electric discharge passed through him.
The muscles of his ihigeis contractu!, and
he; touid not release hi-s hold of tie; en

IThich Belongs to Our Orrn Correspondent.
Leadville, May 2d, 1879.
Di-ai; Herald: We are now in
Leadville, the modern Mecca towards
which all Americans are turning their
eyes. So, according to promise I will
drop you a few lines relative to our
trip and a short description of Lead
ville. We left Lincoln March 11, and fol
lowed the B. M. II. II. to Kearney, from
Kearney we followed the U. P. to
Julesburg, Col., passing through the
great cattle range of Nebraska, where
immense herds of cattle are being con
stantly grazed tlie year round, without
shelter or fee 1, except w hat they find.
Last winter was particularly hard ou
cattle in that section, and every mile
of tlie road from Plum Creek to Jules
burg is strewn with their carcases, the
number running way up into the thous
ands. From Julesburg wo follow the South
Platte to Denver passing the town of
Greeley and Evans. This section is
principally devoted to sheep raising.
There is some farming done, but not
much, as the soil is principally sand
and it has all to be irrigated. Colora
do is not the place for a poor man who
wishes to follow farming for a liveli
hood as it costs more to get a piece of
raw land ready for planting than it
would to buy a farm in Nebraska. We
caught our first glimpse of theliocky
Mountains while at a distance of over
lOOnfiles from Denver, Long's Peak
looming up in the clouds far above all
the rest of tlie bills.
From Denver we started for Web
ster, the present terminus of the Den
ver South Park and Pacific 11. JL The
next point after Wcb.ster was Fair
Play, an old mining camp, and a town
of some importance now. From Fair
Play there are three roads to Leadville,
one over the Mosquito It inge. a mere
foot or pack mule path, 12 miles lor.g;
one " over the range" used by tlie j
stages, a distance of 40 miles; and the
road " around tlie range," tho one most
generally used, a distance of SO miles,
which was the one we followed to our

land. The wonderful discoveries at
this place, which have lately been thor
oughly advertised, have been known
in Colorado for over it year, since 1S77,
olid miners and prospectors have
crowded m from every mining camp
between the Black Hills and the Sau
Juan country. But within the last
seven months thousands have come in
flora t'.is "states" and the Pacific coast
and arc still coming at the rate of
from 00 to :J00 per day. It has a pop
ulation of over 1,00, and is the pro
jective terminus of three railroads,
which will be finished this fall, the
Denver, Soutli Park. & Pacific, the At
chison, Topeka and Santa Fe and the
Colorado Central li. K.
Business of all kinds has been and in
fact V U'X'J, but is likely to bo over
done low that Spring has opened. Tlie
merchants carrying immense stocks of
go-ids and generally having another on
the road, as it takes some timo fr
freight to reach here. Money is plen
tiful, and all sales are for cash.
Freighting, which is done principal
ly from Webster and Colorado Spiings
has been very good, with prices vary
ing from four to six cents per pound,
but with the advent of mild weather,
teams have crowded in until it is now
worth only from one and a half to
three cents per. lb. Wages have also
taken a fall and are 82.o0 per day for
wood choppers, $2.00 fur laborers, ma
sons, carpenters and blacksmiths :) to
.31.00, experienced miners .515.00. There
lias been very little destitution or suf
fering, men willing to work have al
ways found employment, but the la
boring man east who has sure employ
ment had better stav there as the pres
ent prices, taking into consideration the
high prices of everything else, and the
cot of reaching here, are very little if
any better than he can do at home. A
business man with enterprise and mon
ey can find plenty of chances to better
his fortunes, as new mining camps are
springing up, and prospectors who
have struck ore are willing to sell
shares at reasonable rates to procure
the neces'ary means to work their
The health of this place, as far as I
can judge from my ow n experience and
others, is very good. There is a grave
yard here over a year old, the only one
for miles in any direction and it con
tains less than two hundred and fifty
graves, a small per cent for a town
that has had over 10,000 inhabitants at
atiTtime during that perioJ. I think
one reason for the current reports of
the unhealthf ulness of this place is the
suddenness with which a person istak-J
en off, generally less than a week sifter j

Before I close, although my letter is
long enough, in fact, I aui afraid too
long, I must say a few words in rela

zens and their prospects. Charley La
zenby who will be well remembered sis
one of Plattsmouth's old settlers is
here, clerking for Holiday & Co. Char
ley has an interest iu several mines, so
that his prospects are good. Sam
Ford who will also be remembered by
many of Plattsmouth's old citizens is
here and is doing well. He owns in
terests in several mines and is worth
from SI 0,000 to S 100,000. Dick O'Xeil
one of Plattsmouth's citizei.s has been
iu the Jewelry business here, but sold
out his business to his parlm r lately,
and has gone to speculating in mines
and mining interests. Ha has made
0:1c lucky investment, from which lie
will reap a handsome sum, and his
prospects are good in three other eas
es, although tluro is nothing assured
as yet in them The Story boys, old
residents of Cass ceuuty tire prospect
ing close at hand, and are now sinking
a shaft for a mine in what is consider
ed a very good location.
