What Our Exchanges Say.
Capt. Paul Boynton started from the
head waters of the Yellowstone about
the 25th of this month to make a trip
ih his famous swimming suit down
that river and the Missouri to St
Christian Waterman, of Pawnee
City was kicked by a horsta knocking
him insensible; he recovered con
sciousness and walked to a creek
near by, where he was found a few
hours afterwards, dead.
The wife of Mr. M. J. Reed, of
South Branch Precinct, Otoe County,
has been missing for some time, and
last week her remains were found in a
corn field, four or live miles from
home, the flesh having been torn from
the bones by hogs. Sha was partially
deranged at the time she left home.
Sweeps Orer the Tonus of Stanton and
Wisner, September,29. This morn
ing at 1 o'clock Stanton, Neb., was to
tally wiecked by a cyclone. The bus
iness portion of the town is nil gone,
with the exception of one or two
storos. The Central House was
strewn over several acres. Your cor
respondent was is the latter build
ing but was only slightly injared.
Two or three persons are expected to
die but the greatest wonder is ex
pressed by every oe that no one was
killed outright. Among the traveling
men at the hotel was Mr. Leiter, of
Max Meyer & Bro., but he was only
slightly injured. One building, the
agricultural implement store of John
son & Everson, was carried entirely
away so that not a board can be found.
Mrs. Wm. Nye ii now dying. Over
twenty buildings, exclusive of stores,
are gone. The scene cannot be de
scribed. It was appalling beyond be
lief. Naked women, children and men
emergw from the ruins of their homes
covered with cuts an bruises, while
some are so badly crushed as tore
quire aid to be carried to some place
of shelter. The charity of the public
is needed and contributions for the
homeless sufferers would be gratefully
received. The Stanton County offi
cials will act in this behalf.

"For God. and Lome, and Native l.and.
A Letter from Kansas to a Resident
LiAiiETTK Co., Kansas, lfeSl.
Dear Nephew: Learning that you
are an advocate of that Godly doctrine
of "Total Abstinence" and iu a legitl
point of view are in favor of prohibi
tion, and as I have for years practiced
the one aud advocated the other, and
having had something to do with
making tho law which carries intw
effect the amendment to our constitu
tion which forever prohibits the man
ufacture and sale of intoxicating liq
uor except for ruccliaiiic.il, medical
and scientific purposes, I concluded to
write you the effect and progress m.ide
in that direction. It is asserted both
in Kansas and oit of Kansas that
there is as much liquor sold in Kansas
now as there was before the law took
effect. This assertion is false.; it is
the emanation of evil wishes and only
comes from those whose "wish is
father to the thought."
Prohibition in Kansas is a success,
a complete success. I have been the
county attorney of my county for
eight years and have had many prose
cutions for the violation of the "Old
Dram Shop Act" which was the law
regulating the sale of liquor before
the present law took effect. I have
I had hundreds of cases on our criminal
docket out of which the largest pro
portion found their way through the
saloons either directly or indirectly .
I have had on our criminal
docket as high as sixty-six criminal
cases at one term of our court and
three fourths of them grew out of the
use of intoxicating drinks. Since the
taking effect of the present prohibi
tion law, from three to five cttses on
the criminal calender at each term is
the average. There are in our county
three cities of the second class, where
heretofore a police force was necessa
ry to keep order on account of intem
perance, and now there is not a sin
gle policeman needed and the city
marshals and poiicfc Judges are starv
ing for want of business.
1 find many families within my ex
tended acquaintance over tins large
and populous county (the fourth in
size and number in the state) who are
now prospering and the children are
better clad and the fathers are now in
dustrious aud can generally be found
at home on his farm hard at work,
earning an honest and honorable liv
ing for hi3 family, and a pleasant
smile beams from the countenance of
the dear wife all this since the adop
tion of the prohibitory liquor law,
whereas before, the parent and hus
band spent his time and money at the
saloons, and his poor heart broken
wife and barefooted children were at
home suffering for the most common
rude necessaries of life.
We see great and manifold blessings
emanating from this law, and Kansas,
which ins always been in the advance
of all other states, is proud that she
has Miade the law a success.
This law offers inducements to the
better element of society in other
states to come with their families
ad join us in our enjoyment of so
good a law ; to come where their boys
cannot be led away . into vice and
crime through the doors of the hell
deserving saloons; where then girls
can grow to womanhood and not be
compelled to associate with that
class of young men who frequent sa
loons and who are creating for them
selves an appetite for ardent spirits,
that in riper years will lead them to
drunkenness, misery and want.
Tis true we lose a few of our citi
zens on account of this law but we
can welt spare the class that is going,
and instead we are receiving as citi
zens good suostantial men and women
who say they are coming to Kansas on
account of the prohibitory law.
That class that leave us will throng
our neighbor states and soon your so
ciety will show their work and you
will as a matter of self protection
adopt this same law to rid your state
of your own bad men as well as those
that have left this country for the
I am indeed proud to know that
there are others of my name, and that
are connected to m by the laws of
consanguinity who are advocates of
the Temperance movement. 'I ain
proud to learn that you are a zealous
worker in this cause, and my admoni"
i. yon be. be determined never to
"let up" until you have inaugurated a
complete revolution and have en
grafted into your organic law a clause
that will fwrever prohibit the selling
out of damnation to your fellow
men. ' J. S. Waters.

GRANT'S GALENA I10.ME.
Stored Mith Girts That are Guarded bj
an Old Soldier.
Galena Cr. LouUville Caiirler-Journal.
It is now pretty well understood I
that Gen. Grunt has fully concluded to
change his residence from this city
for good, and will in the future make
New York his home. The general is
very much attached to Galen", and but
lor business enterprises, would no
doubt remain m this city during the
remainder of his life. Here he was
living with his family and other rela
Uvea when the war broke out. Hi3
hotno is situated in a very beautiful
part of the city and persons passin
through town on the illioois Central
j have a good view of the Grant lesi
deuce from the car windows. The
lion.se is a good, substantial, but
rather plain two story brick, the ex
tenor finish aud elaboration being
modeled atter a very simple aud taste
f ul style of architecture. The yard is
kept in the very best order, the trees
aud lawn beiug nicely cut and trim
rued. The house for some time has
been under the charge of an old sol
dier who served under Grant during
the late unpleasantness, aud with the
assistance of tho worthy fellow's wife,
everything about the establishment is
kept iu the very best order. Some of
the furniture has been taken away and
is stored at Long Branch, but many of
the presents presented to the General
and His wife during their tour around
the world, are still to be seen at their
Galena residence, including elegant
paintings, valuable and very rich
chiua aud majolica crockery. His li
brary is still here, and is a very valu
able one, embracing a choice library of
books on historical, scientific and art
subjects, a well as a good assorted va
riety of works ot fiction aud poetry.
Many presents given him while in
China, Japan and other foreign coun
tries are in Philadelphia, in the care
of George W. Childs, and perhaps his
numerous and costly gifts will never
all be gathered together, until the re
tired warrior has settled down some
place to remain. He cannot call Gal
ena his home, any more than New
York, Oshkosh or Louisville, but it is
now generally thought here he will
never live long enough in Galena to
run for a full-fledged Alderman.
Grant still holds on to his St. Louis
farm, which is a very valuable piece of
property. It is very desirably located,
and has the very best improvements
fov well cultivated farm lands. He
has had several offers to sell it, but
his friend, think the general would
rather sell almost anything than his
Missouri property. It is understood
that some wealthy railroad magnates
wanted to buy the place, and soon af
ter Grant struck the cuuntry from his
foreign rambles they made him a lib
eral offer, but the silent man thought
he had the best jack knife of the two
and "wouldn't swap."
How much Grant is worth i a hard
matter to solve. Like all rich men,
his wealth, no doubt ia over estimated.
It has been said that his travels
around the globe cost him $50,000,
and that he caoie home a much poorer
man than he was the day he sailed
upon his journey. Be this as it may,
Gen. Grant in thought to be a very
wealthy man by most of his friends
in Galena, and sLould he live and
keep his health, the time will come
round when he will sit upon the finan
cial ladder with the proudest million
aires of the land. His Mexican rail
road schemes, while yet in an unde
veloped state, Grant thinks produc
tive of the richest harvest of any seed
he has yet sown. The General and
Mrs. Giant are expected to return to
Galena late in October, and after re
maining here for a few days he will
go to New Mexico.

How English "Women Shoot.
Lady Florence Dixie, who when last
heard of, was in the camp at Bennett's
Drift, camping out, and cooking her
own rations with the help of Sir Beau
mont, has re-established the somewhat
damaged reputation of her countrymen
for shooting. There was a Dutch Boer
one of the four told off to guard the
Boer leaders attending the ltoyal Com
mission. This Boer talked big about his
shooting powers and very small about
those of tho English. Lady Florence
challenged him, therefore, to a trial of
skill. The match was arranged. Tho
Boer shot with a Martini-Henry rifle.
Lady Florence with a Winchester, at
bottles placed at a distance of 200 yards.
To tho delight of all tho onlookers,
Lady Florence hit her bottles one after
another as if they were elephants, and
the Boer went away signally defeated
and w ith the conviction that if all Eng
lishmen can't shoot, some

Carl Pretzel tints discourses, iu tho
Rational Weekly concerning lovers of
tho weed :
Anion"; smokers tho.ro aro many epi
cures ; their fastidiousness is exhibited,
in n hundred ways. Tho epicuri.m
smoker indulges in his d irling habit
only under the most favoniblj condi
tions ; the right time, the riglt place,
and the most favorable circumstances,
must unite to entice him. Then tho
epicure throws himself back in his
easy chair iu a reclining attitude, and
first carefully inspects, th'-n lights and
proceeds to smoko his favorite cigar.
There is an air of trepidation about our
epicurean smoker while he gently
draws the first few whills ; he linger
his superb 'unian" nervously, re
motes it from his mouth frequently,
scrutinizes the gradually forming "ash"
narruwh. After making this observa
tion ho uillers the smoke to escape slow
ly from his lips, inclines his head slight
ly, and closes his eyes, permitting his
face to be bathed in tho nsuending
wreaths of blue, that every senso may
sit in judgment on tho quality of tho
cigar. If the verdict is favorable, tho
smoker's eyes unclose only to beam
with delight, n placid smile overspreads
his face, and from his now parted lips,
tho remnant of tho experimental whiff
is borne forth on a sigh of grateful re
lief and supremo satisfaction.
The man who smokes is at his best,
intellectually and morally, when he
smokes. It is then, if ever, that great
thoughts come to him. It is then, if
ever, that ho forms noblo resolutions.
Blessed bo he, and blessed be the world
if these great thoughts and noble reso
lutions do not end in smoke ! Tho
cigar is the chief of all comforters in
affliction. When all other companion
ship jars, the cigar soothes. Tho silent
communion between tho smoker and
his cigar, promotes a contentment akin
to that to lovers whoso hearts aro too
full for utterance. As tho lover clasps
his betrothed in his arms and draws an
inspiration of eternal fidelity from her
confiding eyes, so the smoker fondles
his cigar, and finds a blessed oblivion in
the clouds of ever vanishing, ever re
newing wreaths of smoke that circle
about his head.

It is a French instrument, about four
feet wide, a foot deep, and stands a
trifle higher than the key-board of a
pianoforte. The actor placed this novel
invention in front of a handsome up
right Stein way pianoforte. Extending
from the back .were small hammers,
enough to cover the principal keys ol
the Stcinway instrument. A heavy
paper with perforations, and resemb
ling a book, was placed in the left hand
side, and the end placed under a cross-
board on tho top of tho pianista. Mr.
Ernmet then turned a crank, and as
the paper passed under the center-board
the perforations worked small levers,
which in turn worked the hammers or
the keys of the finger-board, and the
splendid instrument played "La Car
nivaldeveni.se," and "Home, ssweei
Home." These were played on tin
piano, and by working two pedals at
the foot of tho pianista tho fcame tunes
can Lo played.
