Lincoln, Tuesday Sept. 6.
I'm not a j;otd yuer.str, t.t all; I
guessed last night that we would have
Ud luck and it would not rain.
Tuesday morning it did open fair, but
before nine it commenced blowing
fearfully, the dust flew the thermom
eter wiis way up vcr a hundred
and just before noon the heat, and
wind and dust became almost un
bearable. Whack! dash! almost with
out warning the wind changed, t he
sky became overcast, and a little, after,
two it was raining hard with a cold
wind from the north, aud it kept it up
more or less ail the afternoon; nev
ertheless a good ('amp Fiio was held
in the evening.
Wednesday opened rainy i'nd the bins
feit blue enough. At ten, "Ouicers
call" sounded, and Use division com
manders ..ud oflicers of Posts assem
bled in Gen. Maudersoifs quarters,
where a discussion ensued on the ad
visability of breaking camp.
The general opinion was that sol
ditis ought not to take the back track
for a little rain, and tli.it in justice to
the committer on giounds Sic, the
camp should be main'.aii.ed until
really forced to abandon it by much
This announcement made from the

and the boys pluckily toughed it out.
Wednesday was a bad one all day.
Thursday cleared up however and we
think to-d.iy ar.d to-morrow will more
than make up for the disappointment
of Tuesday and Wednesday. "Our
band" took the persimmons though,
and kept the camp alive with music.

Ouu correspondent from Three

stoim last week. Wednesday night,
which wrought considerable damage
south and west of us. From Mr.
Lloyd we learn that the damage was
equally severe about Eicrht Mile Grove.
Mr. Johnson was building a new house
which was blown off the foundation
as also was Mr. Win. lihodeu's. Mr.
Jesse McVeigh's buildings were all un
roofed except his house. The corn
was all swept flat. A good deal of
hail fell. Tin storm as near as we
can make out seemed to lift at inter
vals an 1 then sweep down againj
Some sect ions apparently in the line
of the storm not receiving much dam
age. Owing to our absence we unavoid
ably omitted mention of the death of
Hon. II. S. Kaley, at Red Cloud, Web
ster Co., which occurred week before
last. Mr. Kaley was a lawyer and his
practice in the western counties was
extensive. He had occupied several
important state and county offices,
among them a delegate to the Repub
lican National Convention of 1876;
president of the state board of educa
tion; a member of the state Fish Com
mission, and just before his death he
had been appointed Consul to Chem
nitz. He was but thirty-seven years '
of age, and was cut off in the veiy
prime of an honorable and useful ca
reer. By death, resignation or appoint
ment in the U. S. service there are sev
eral vacancies in our Legislature at
present, notably: C. II. Van Wyck,
state senator from Otoe, elected U. S.
senator; T. L. Schick, rep., from Ne
maha; and S. II. Kaley, rep., from Web
ster, who have died since the legisla
ture adjourned. We presume the Gov
ernor will issue a proclamation to
have their places filled at this fall elec
tion. How to get Sick.

We have received a copy of "Tte
Dictionary of E 'In: it ion and Instruc
tlon," edited by Henry Kiddie and A.
J. Sch Mii, and published by E. steigher
vt Co., Xew York; notice of which ha
been given in our columns before. Mr.
Kiddle has been for many years Chief
Superintendent of the Xew York City
schools and for several years principal
of the Normal school in the same
place. ProL Seheui was one of the
Assistant Superintendents of Xew
York City, and occupying such posi
tions their advantages for the compil
ation of such a work were the very
best. The Dictionary ;s a sort of con
densation of a still larger work by
Messrs. Kiddle & Sehem, called the
Cyclopaedia of Education. Produced
by the urgent demand for a work
which should be more compact and at
more moderate cost than the Cyclopae
dia. This work must supply the de
mand most admirably, we should
think, and a teacher once in possession
of it could hardly do without it. We
have not space for a further notico
but any teacher or person interested
in education who may desire at any
time to examine the work will tind
our copy ready for their inspection.
The publisher's of Rev. Dr. Robin
son's "Spiritual Songs for thp Sunday
School" have just, issued a Utile book
containing only the hymns of that
work and selling for one half the
money. It will be a most desirable
supplement to the large bo.ik, greatly
increasing its usefulness, and placing
it within the reach of ihe largest mis
sion schools. The new edition is pret
tily bound in Hexibio red c loili, and
cs.sts 1 ut SO cuts. The complete tune
edition, bound in si iff boards, covered
with red cloth, with red edges, cost h
40 cents to schools in quantities. It is
said that the sales of the latter work
have mounted up into the seoies f

The Apache Outbreak
The telegraphic dispatches of Sat
urday announced another terrible In
dian massacre at Apache Ft it. Ari-
zona Ten ltorv. auu repotted the ohcr ;
in command. Gen. Carr, six tfficersand
110 men massacred. Subsequent dis- i
pitches modifyed this report very ma- !
terially and as the news now stands. !
Capt. Ilentig and ten men only are the ;
victims. The facts so far as ascertain
ed seems to be that Gen. Cair with
about 110 men marched forty-five miles
from Fort Apache to arrest seme
medicine men who had been attempt
ing to incite the Indians against the
troupH and after arresting the medi-
cine men weie attacked by the Indians
with the loss above mentioned. Af
ter which they retreated to Fort
Apache. The Indians are now on the
war path. Pursued a train on the S.
Pacific road near Wildoa for ix miles,
attacked Forts Browne and Apache,
and have killed a number of settlers
and ranchmen. True priticulars are

His Removal to Long Branch.
-Tuesday uiornin, Sept. Gih. at about
live o'clock the journey of the Pres
ident from the White House to Long
Branch began, it Sieving been decided
a very necessary, although somewhat
hazardous experiment. The early
morning was considered the best time
to avoid as much as possible the ex
treme heat. He was carried on the
bed en which lie had lain for so many
weeks, to an express wagon, wi.ich
was iiowly driven to tha Pa. R. R.
where stood the special train and car
provided for the tiip. Here the Pres
ident was again moved by Drs. Biiss.
Boynton and Reybum, and Gen. Swain,
Col. Rock well and Col. Corbin, to the
car provided for him. A cro - d lined
the ro.il and thy depot but the utmost
sympathy and silence prevailed. The
train was run at an average speed of
forty miles her hour, it having been
found that the more rapid motion did
n.t cause any more vibration of the
President's bed than a slower one.
Three quarters of a mile of track
bad been temporarily built from the
depot at Long Branch t Franklin
Cottage wheie the President was to
be taken, and at 1 :13 p. in. the train
reached the Cottage and the president
was safely moved to his quarters with
in. II is exceeding desire to be liu.ved
and the disturbance consequent had
caused a high pulse and some restless
ness during the day and night pre
vious, but the journey wa borne ex
ceedingly well, his pulse falling seme

Col. Bain said: "The liquor folks
weic weighed in the balance and
found wanting. There was nothing
on their side but broken hearts, ruined
homes and tears. There ere yj.000,
UUO bushels of grain used to make
liqtiur. This was equal to many mill
ions of loaves of bread. Couid these
be converted fnto a roadway it would
reach from Lake' Bluff to Chicago,
Chicago to St. Louis, thence to Kansas
City, Horn there to Omaha, on to the
Pacific Ocean, thence back to the At
lantic. These loaves would -make a
pillar 100 leet square and 3,i00 feet
high. A man with a cart would ie
quhe 1,0'JQ years to remove it, or l,0i0
carts for one year. It would be better
for the caits to dump tho bread in the
ocean than put it to its present use.
Whisky was said to be good for a
morning drink. A cup of cold water
and a breath of God's pure air was the
only beverage for such use. It was
good for neither health nor disease'
wealth nor happiness, north or south,
time rr ttornity. It was bad and
only bad; bad in friendship, bad in
every tiling. A man once jumped up
in the audience and said whisky was
good for rattl-snake biles. Then, re
plied the speaker, rartle-snake Lites
aiegcd for whisky. There should be
one ra. tie-snake bite for every saloon
Time were millions lost iu this coun
try annually for whisky."
The St. Louis Reporter says; "Out
of ihe fullness of things here, 1 can do
hardly more than group a few. leading
thoughts. Messrs. Bain, Johnson and
Woodford, and Miss Willard traverse
the w hale country by the year. They
l agree that the past year's advance in
sentiment anil aeierminaiien lowaru
prohibition is everywhere clear and
strong. And it is the feeling not only
of these four but of a large majority
oi the observers here that the time
and public feeiir.g are ripe for ihe tem
perance shibboleth iu politics as the
law-maker of the countiy. It is also
the sense of this assembly that license
is not temperanc, its lull euforc liient
not practicable; that woman suffrage
is necessary to complete prohibition;
that relief in this form is rapidly ap
proaching; and that people should
j support their home ergan lor sobriety
I be l ore subscribing farther oiT. But
prohibiuuy law is not set down as of
j value unless peblic sentiment is up
even with it. Tor instance li.e title
deeds of Greeley, Col., contain piohib
iiion; bu Woodford there saw chronic
Fee l of tcform in the home, at com
munion, at.u hard celcr in the lunch
baskets d school children.
Judge J.W.C. Watson, of Mississ
ippi has also takm great interest in
ilie convocation, spending two weeks
of his Miiiiint-r vacation here. He re
ports very active temperance senti
ment and act. on in his home Slate for
prohibition. Col. Bain pats the argu
ment fcr total Hbatiuenee versus mod
erate uriiiKiug in ii. it, teiae iorui:
Moderation invites drunkenness, and
bailee is bad; tetal abstinence is so
briety and sobiieiy never hurt any
body. Mr. Finch indexed progress in
Nebraska thus; Some year s ag- nobody
in ail Omaha wa,s know n te keep open
house on Xew Years without wine;
last Xew Years nobody la all Omaha
and Lincoln was known to offer wine.
He argues for the right to prohibit on
the basis that sulaons a:e parasitic oa
the body, tucking without producing;
and that therefore society may como
them out with the same light as
the unfortunate man :;iay comb lice
from his hair.
Dr. Johnson presents a box of viis
lahfh'd oil ogn-ic, vitriel, bitter al
monds, wine oil, juniper, aqua foitis,
nitric acid, aloes, logwood, strychnine,
etc., and details how forty gallon of
wine, brandy or Holland gin is made
from these drugs. His shewing is
enough to give delirium tremens to
evwti a modera'.e drinker.
