Associated Tress I'Ujmteh.
Cleveland, June 13. -The Leader
this morning publishes reports frm
nearly all the important points in
northern Ohio and some places in west
ern Pennsylvania, giving the condition
of crops. The frosts of last week did
vi ry little damage. There will be about
a two-thirds crop of wheat. The pros
pects are that the corn crop will be a
failure, Ore cause of which is the lng
dry weather which prevailed in this
region previous to last week. Oats
are somewhat better than corn, though
not over a two-third crop. The hay
crap will be very light, on account of
the drought. There will probably be
a fair yield of potatoes. Fruits, parti
cularly apples, will be very light.

The Iter. Mr. Marquett delivered an
interesting and excellent address at
the Red Ribbon meeting on Monday
night, as proof of the growing strength
and popularity of the Temperance re
formation, he read resolutions adopted
by a late Brewers' Convention, claiming
that the substituting of malt, for spir
ituous liquors wuld advance the cause
of Temperance. The speaker advised
Mr. Dovey to add the " Brewer's tem
perance society" to the list which he
read at the opening of the meeting.
We received the following item from
South Bend for our column:
Sunday, June 8th Mrs. B. Spurlock
of Plattsmouth addressed a large con
gregation of the citizens of South
Bend. Her address received the clos
est attention, and the moistened eyes
gave evidence that the speaker has a
power over the sympathies of her hear
ers. Good seed was sown. The Past
tor, Rev. Horace A. Ewell will preach
upon temperance, June the 22d, (Sun
day night.) " Come over into Mace
donia and help us!"
For "God, Home and "Native land,"
those words are significant and have a
deep meaning. May God help us to
teach our husbands, brothers and sons
to give to us just what they require of
us : sobriety, honesty, modesty and pur
ity. The work of the W. C. T. U. is too
well understood to need much expla
nation. Never was there a time when
so much was required at Woman's
hands; when we had such need of
strong earnest hearts. Roused by the
crashing power of tho enemy of her
home, she has come forth to battle,
looking to God for direction, wisdom
and strength, never to cease, until the
last stronghold of the enemy is swept
The Druggists' Liquor Bill, which
has again been before the Legislature,
and pressed by its friends as an enter
ing wedge against the prohibitory law,
has suffered an ignominous defeat. It
was recently "indefinitely postponed"
by the nouse by the dec'sive vote of
127 to 21.
A bill for the repeal of the Prohibi
tory Law of Vermont was defeated in
the Lower House of the Legislature by
a vote of 165 to 61.
As the late Maj. Gen. Dix advanced
in years he began to appreciate the
evils of intemperance. Shortly before
his death he wrote the annexed busi
ness note to agents in Chicago, who
had charge of some real estate owned
by the General in that city. We should
be glad to publish similar letters from
several thousand men who are renting
buildings in which alchohol is sold.
We wish thai every rumaeller's land
lord would read this message and fol
low the ex-Governor's example:
"lam very glad you have allowed
the Woodlawn house to remain vacant,
instead of renting it for the sale of
spirituous liquors. I would rather let
it remain vacant to the end of time
than to have it rented for such a pur
pose. I consider rum the cause of
nine-tenths of all the murdeis, poverty
and crime in the country ; and no earth
ly consideration would induce me to
contribute in the remotest manner to
its sale. JohnA.Pix.
That the perils of travel by railway
and steamer are greatly enhanced by
strong drink there is no room for doubt.
The Indianapolis & St. Louis Railroad
has lately adopted a rule which will
add very materially to the safety of
those who have occasion to travel over
it, and also, we doubt not, to the busi
ness prosperity of the company. Au
order, officially promulgated March 31,
says: " The use of intoxicating liquors
by employees of this company is ex
pressly prohibited. llerealter any
person in the employ ef this company
who shall become intoxicated, or who
shall be known to enter drinking-sa-loons
for the purpose of obtaining li
quor, will be promptly dismissed Irom
the service. Any person now in the
service of the company who canHot
consistently comply with tins ordei is
respectfully requested to resign." This
is a praiseworthy precedent which every
railway company in the country should
follow both Irom business and eco
nomic considerations, and as a meats
of greater security for the traveling

The Turf Field and Farm, New
York, gives our view of the Omaha
races exactly. We reproduce their let
ter: Omaha, Neb., May 30, 1S79.
The peripatetic Splan, with his string
of famous horses came down upon us
"like the wolf on the fold," but bastily
under the light of last night's silvery
moon he "folded his tents, like the
Arabs, and as quietly stole away."
His visit here has not been a success,
either in the amount of western wealth
transferred to his purse, or in the
amount of satisfaction he afforded to
our people. Still there is no dunying
that, without his horses, the Spring
meeting of the Omaha Driving Asso
ciation would have been a remarkably
tame affair. The only satisfactory
work done by any of his horses was by
Adelaide yesterday, when she won the
"free for all." making her best mile in
2:21), after losing the first two heats in
2:33, 2:S1J2- The attempts of Sweetzer
and Colonel Lewis to beat Rams' best
time on this track (2:11; were most
disgraceful failures, the best time
made in the five heats being 2:23j' by
Sweetzer. Rarus was advertised to
trot against time, to beat the best timo
ever made on a half track, but Splan
claims that he had hurt his foot, and
was not in Condition, lie was howev
er "exhibited" on the track, and allow
ed to trot a lew times around, making
one-half mile in 1:11, but many who
came from a distance especially to see
"Rarus the King" (as tho. programme
reads), were giieviously disappointed,
but they were rewarded by the sensa
tional occurence of yesterday after
noon, when everybody protested
against everybody el.se, and horses
were set back and heats declared dead
with an equanimity that quite took
away the breath of one accustomed to
the quiet Eastern manner of judging
races. I looked around to 6eo some
Western "Colonel Ryndei s"rise up and
threaten to come down' from the judges'
stand and whip every driver on tho
track if they did not attend to busi
ness. Then in addition to these wordy
collisions between drivers and judges,
collisions between sulkys and collisions
between runaway horses were not
wanting. In the second heat of the
2:33 trot, Little Frank ran into Pilot's
sulky and overturned it, throwing the
driver out of his seat, and the horse
quickly resolved himself into a run
ning race, and a lively time for a few
turns around the track, and running
into several carriages before he could
be checked. The driver was somewhat
bruised and scratched, but not serious
ly hurt. Pilot's sulky was not injured.
Little Frank cut himself slightly, and
tired himself in the runaway, and was
not again brought on the track. Dur
ing the second heat of the running
race Lamartiae collided with Beach
wood, unseating his rider, who fell
heavily to the ground and received a
severe kick from the heels of the vi

It is no exaggeration to pronounce
this country as left by the hand of na
ture most beautiful. The forest is re
stricted to narrow fringes along tho
streams the courses of which are thus
defined as far as the eye can reach,
while all between is a broad expanse
of meadow lands, carpeted with a rich
groen verdure, wearing the appearance
of a graded lawn This may we'd be
called the rolling prairie because the
lan'Ts rise and falls in gentle swells
which probably attain an elevation of
from thirty to fifty feet, and then gra
dually descending to the level. It
seems almost impossible for any coun
try to excel this in varied charts of
pastoral scenery. The prairie is cov
ered with beautiful wild flowers; that
would do justice to the finest flower
garden in the world. During our ram
blcs we have never grown weary of
sight seeing. "The smile of God rests
upon this lovely land and everlasting
benediction." A few days ago, we vis
ited in Rooks Co., Kansas, a colony
from Cass Co. Although they have
been in their new homes a little over
a year, we find them contented, pros
perous and happy. There is very little
Government land east of Red Willow
Co. yet untaken and in Kansas very
little east of Graham Co.
Tho prospect for crops are good al
though rain is needed in western Kan
sas at this time. The school system
in western Kansas is hardly equal to
that of western Nebraska, and the
towns of Neb. excel those of Kansas
both in neatness and size, but the time
will not be long till western Kansas
and western Nebraska become promi
nent parts of their respective states.
Rest ectfully, Howard.

me for years, caused by a sick faviily
and large bilh fcr doctoring, which did
no good. I was cor ipletely discourag
ed, until one year ago, by the advice of
my pastor, I procured Hop Bitters and
commenced their use, and in one month
we were all well, and none of us h'sve
been sick a day since; and L want to
say to all poor men, you can keep
your families welT a year with Hop
Bitters for less than one dactor's visit
will cost. A Workingman.
Opium smoking finds little toleration
in Japan. A man was recently sentenced
to ten j-ears' hard labor ia Yokohama for
violation of the law against the practice.
A gentleman fate one evening, met Ins
servant. "Hallo! where arc you going
this time of night? For no good, I'il
warrant." "I was going for you, Bir."

Of late I have had many opportunities of
iisiiiii your 1'ianos and can siay with pleasure,
they have no superior in America, and my lonjj
exiiVrience ahroad justifies me in nlacinn them
ahead of anv foreign instruments of tlicir kind.

Madame lloze and the. other :itists of my
company are delighted with the 'Miller" l'iano,
foritsrich purity jf tone, and the wonderful
manner in which it su.-anins the voice.
Ill behalf of the P.arnabee Concert Company.
and particularly nivsclf as the pianist of siiid
company, I wish to express many thanks for
the beautiful Crand 1'ianos of your manufac
ture, with which yott have furnished us so far
this season. With your tine instruments eon-
en t giving becomes a positive pleasure and ile-
lijjni, "t-o eay we au oi us.
I consider no other "make" with which 1 am
acquainted, can excel it in any of the dualities
that constitute a perfect instrument. " As an
accompaniment for the voice, I know of none 1
rt'oulu prelerto yours.

I have known the IManos manufactured by
Mr. Henry 1- . Miller for many years anil l oo
not hesitate ti say that they take high rank
among the first-claas instruments of hiiv of the
best makers. Caki. Zkiuiah.v
I consider the Miller Fiano superior to all
others in that mellow and sinking ipiality so ac
ceptable for voice acciiipaniiuei'ts.
iUls. t. AL1.1! OMi'.'yil,
AVe were delighted with the IManos of vour
lanufacture which we used during our recent
tourtn the Cnited States, their charming sintc-
g qualities rendering them especially desira
