The Inter-Ocean came out Saturday
with a 32-page paper, being the tenth
anniversary of its existence. It was a
grand old paper, and we rejoice in its
success, knowing what it costs in
money, trains and work to build up
such a newspaper.
A STREET KAILKOAD in LsIlCo'.n IS
now the trouble that supersedes water
'works for the moment, or rather, they
have got more water works (around
Salt Creek) than they need, and so
give therm-ehes a rest while they
build a railroad. Tom Kennard is the
inventor of the present scheme, and as
usual, they ail smell a mice at once, or
think they do.
We call attention to the rejort of
the Parmer's Institute at Weeping
Water on the lust page. With this we
have received other papers read Defore
"the same.which we shad publish from
time to thnv. In fact, but for the
sickness of employees, one of the pa
pers would have appeared this issue.
We think these meetings very useful
in bringing out information and en
couraging sociability, and when the
p ipers present any merit at all. are
glad to publish them at all times.
A new plow and harrow combined
has been invented by a Mr. Sacket, of
Pennsylvania. It is thought to be of
importance enough to devote over
half a page- of Harper's Weekly to cuts
and a description of it. It consists ot
a complete iron beam plow similar to
others only mounted on wheels one of
which run in the furrow and is aim
ed with shari knives which pulverize
the dirt as it is thrown off from the
mould-board, thus harrowing the
ground at onco and saving an extra
trip and the tramping and packing of
after teams upon the land. It has
been tested at various fairs east, mid
is pronounced a success. Three horses
work it and it saves an immense
amount of time and labor and leaves
t lie land more thoroughly pulverized.
We have, received a copy of Mrs.
Prances Hodgson Burnett's new novel,
"A Pair Barbarian" from the pub
lishing house of James R. Osgowd &
Co., Boston, Mass., who are issuing
the work in bound form, it having
previously appeared as a serial in
Scribner's magazine. Mrs. Burnett
has risen almost at a bound to the
front rank of writers of fiction, the
lii st of her novels w hich appeared in
Scribner's Magazine, '"That Lass
O'Lowries,' being received with the
utmost enthusiasm. This was lol
by Haworth's." somewhat after the
na ire style; "iul later in the same mag
azine, "Louisiana" which treated ot
a totally different phase of life. "A
Pair B.iibarian" was republished b
Scribner from Godey's Lady's Book,
and apparently meets with as much
favor as its preuecessors. It is a
faithful character sketch of a young
American girl from Nevada, whose
father was a bonanza king, and grati
fied his only daughter's every wish
The story represents an episode of her
life wherein she visits an English
aunt and horrifies the residents of the
dull old English town by her uncon
ventional manner and shocking disre
gard of their extreme conservative! 'i)
ways. Mrs. Burnett has happily suc
ceeded in depicting the character of an"
American girl without the charactei
islics denominated "fast" which unfor
tunately is tow often considered a con
comitant part. The fair barbarian is
womanly, with a certain dignity of
her own and with a most affectionate
disposition. Mrs.Burnett possesses one
quality that stamps her the true novel
ist and which is very rare, the ability
to depict so many utterly different
phases of life. With too many of our
authors to read one of their works is
to obtain the key to all but "That Lass
O'Lowries" affords no key to the design
of -Louisiana" that in turn gives no
insight to the "Fai Barbarian."
What charming phase or life Mrs.
Burnett will give next we do not
know, but we shall certainly find out
.is soon as she makes it public and we
advise all our readers to peruse the
Pair Barbarian and then follow our
example in reading whatever else mav
emanate from her pen.
Irish Wrongs and Agrarian Outrages.
To the Editor of The Sun Sir: The
following figures, taken from Magu ire's
"Irish in America," go to show some
of the appliances used by England for
Ireland's amelioration: Prom the year
184G until 181 that is. immediately
following the famine there were
served 32.1S3 ejectments, on which
140,83o human beings were turned out
on the roadside to starve and die.
Prom 1S-I9 until 1853 there were 47.115
ejectments, and the total ejected was
559 000, the year 1850 alone being cred
ited with 74,009 of thes? oSicial mur
rlers. When to this is added the loss
to the country between the years 1841 J
and 18'J3 of .'5,090,000 of its pewple. ;

and daughter, nriived here Monday
with the remains of the late Mrs Fair
field, and were detained heie uniil
Tuesd-iy by the high water. In this
connection we may state that the re
port in the Chicpgo Times that -Mrs.
Fairrield committed suicide erro
neous; she had been suffering from a
gore tjireat and wrajped her throat in
cloths wet in cold wattse, which, gave
rise ti thtj report tht he had strang
led herself with a sheet. Heart dis
ease was the cause of her demise.

Stove Creek Notes.
Ed. Herald: The protracted meet-1
itg closed without any new converts.
We had very bad weather all the time
it was in progress. The iyceum is run
ning yet but will close soon. The
Farmers' Alliance hold their meetings
first and third Mondajs of each
month; there will be a question de
bated at each meeting. The question
for the next meeting is "Resolved
that there is more money made in
raising cattle to feed than there is in
buying." It is a good question. I
should like to be there. Look out for
Kim wood; there is talk of laying off
an addition of ten acres, a portion of
Mr. Woodrough's farm, it wiil be ex
tended north an 1 west of the present
town and there is a building boom ex
pected, and it is a good thing for
Plattsmouth that it is in some big
ho!low,s far away or it might be
moved to hi t.u wood. We expect a
rail road up lite Weeping Water and
we will live, in hopes if we die in de
spair. There are several preparing for the
examination of teachers which takes
place al the Stove Creek schooj house
Charley ( japp is al limine for a tew
days. Mrs. W. II. Loofborough of
Greenwood has been visiting friends
friends l.eie for a lew davs. J. R.
Cox is talkiu.; of starting a stora at
Elm wood and these is to be a wagon
shop and RlackMnuh shoo and other
enterprises will come as the prosper
ity of the tow n demands. We should
like io nav a few woids in be
half of Mr. Cavey because we do not
like to 9e a man 'hat has something
wrong that he eanno: help made fun
of and worse than all by a man, of
education and refinement.
Yours in a Splutter.

Note We di
not understand the
last rem irks In Ibis letter. If the
writer means to say we 'nave male
fun ot Mr. Cavey intentionally because
he had something wrong that he coi!d
not help he is greatly mistaken and
totally tnijiiiiders,tand:i the facts in
the case. If he means to say that
we have intelligence and refinement.
and made fun of a man because he
had not these requisites, he again
totally mistakes our character, and
moreovyi- has not read or does not
read rightly the nature of theeoire
spondence in this pitir hi vvhieh Mi.
Cavey's name appeal ed.
If you are tired taking the large
old-fashioned griping pilis, and ure
satisfied that purging yours- If (ill you
are weak and s;ck is not good common-sense,
then try Carter's Little
Livi r PHI and learn htiw easy it is to
he free from biliou.-tness. headache,
constipation, and all liver troubi.s.
