Eb. IlEUALD:We were considerably
on our ear about the statement of the
Herald of the Cth inst that the suc
cess ot the ticket often depends on the
conduct of the party at the primaries.
We were then and are now,
of the opinion that a thorough
ventilation of any fraud, or
the corruption of any ring in r out of
I'lattsmouth would have the effect of
purifying the political atmosphere or
Cass and redound to the credit of
the party in ur county, as 1 ave the
actions of Tost Master General James
to the credit of the Republican party
iu the administration of our national
affairs. Hut after reading the Her
ald of the 18th, w got off that hear
ing organ of ours, and had we been in
reach of the Herald man would have
said "shake". We think the dirt thrown
at MacMurphy has brightened bun up
so he scours better, as we say of our
plows ; the paper of that date rejects
much credit upon the editor.

'The Children's Garlleld Home."
A new project in memory of the
late President originates in the sug
gestion of a little boy, Willie 1'. Iler
rick for founding a "Garfield Home"
for poor and sick children by subscrip
tions from the children of America.
Willie writes to the New York Even
ing Post as follows:
"I felt very badly when our Presi
dent died, and my brother and I think
it would be very nice to have a home
in the country for little sick ehildren.
Mamma thought that each little bovor
girl could give fr m one cent up to
twenty-live cents. We thought wo
could call it the "Garfield Home" and
we also thought it would be very
nice to have a picture ef President
Garfield in it. We would like all lit
tle bojs and girls to join in this.
Please put this in the paper and also
put in for the parents to tell the chil
dren. Willie P. Herrick.
Newport, September 27, 1881."
To this letter, inclosing a dollar as
the contribution of four children. "Wil
lie's mother adds :
"The children were intensely inter
ested and affected. Their earnest,
childlike prayers and faith touched
our hearts, and we have heard the
same stoiy from other parents. Great
good might be accomplished by turn
ing this tide of children's sympathy
and love to practical use.
The Post, having declined to act as
banker yf the fund, the St. Nicholas
Magazine for Young folks announces
that it will reprint Willie's suggestion
in its November number, believing
! that its voung readers will be glad to
learn of the project, and to iiive if
practical aid; and the publishers of St
Nicholas have volunteered tonceive
and credit all subscriptions lo the

Mr. James Calvert lived in Nebra
ka for ten years, but he b came dis
contented and pulled out for Arkan
sas. Now he writes back that during
his entire residence in this state he,
never experienced as much drought as
in Arkansas the past summer. The old
bugbear that, for years kept a gie it
manv people away .from this country
is about as effectually exploded as any
thing could be, for it is a fact beyond
successful contradiction that whne we

Nebraska the present season has not
suffered for moisture to one-quarter
the extent that states east :r.,d south
have. Our dispatches rroin .ijeni from
day to day have teld of the ii .- i. veu

rain. From Kentucky. Virginia, Ohio,
Indiana, New York, New Jersey, and
in fact nearly every weere, comes in
formation of crops burnt up. streams
and wells going dry, stock choking
from thirst, the foiests on lire, and gen
eral ruin and devastation widespread
from the causes before mentioned.
This Is not ti ue of Nebraska to any
alarming extent. Crops lu.ve suffered
some, but the drought has not been
general, and while fields of corn here
and there have felt severely the want
of tain, others in the same neighbor
hood have prospered to an extent which
indicates no lack of moisture. In Ne
braska we hear of no streams of im
portance going entirely dry, the wells
are net giving out as a general thing,
or any serious diminution of crops.

Ex-Senator Spraua "at Ilonn."
A correspondent of the Philadelphia
Tress mado a call upon ex-Senator
Spragtto and thus describes himself
and home :
When Mr. Spraguo canio in I felt
pained and embarrassed for him a mo
ment, that he should bo asked to dis
close hi3 det hroned, dishonored penntes
to tho eye of strangers, but I need not
have felt so. for he received the request
with tho dignity and gallantry of a
nineteenth century philosopher, and
himself proceeded to bo our cicerone.
Mr. Spraguo looks somewhat lb-shim
than of old ; his black hair is still
abundant, and his eyes, tho finest feat
ure of his fnco seem to read jour
thought at once, and to desire no sub
terfuges or disguises. Ho woro a com

from 18G2 to 1874, of wartimes and tho
d:iys of reconstruction, and incident
ally of Mrs. Sprague from time lo time, '
as evidences of her tasto were displayed
in the construction and ornamentation
of the various rooms. He seemed neither
Jo court nor to shun tho mention of hro
name. Wc asked him of his son, and
ho said: "That's Willie now, firing off
that gun outside. Ho is manifesting
himself." Ho is 10 years old, a fine
boy, and the father's eyes kindled with
pleasure iu speaking of him, and again
in leading us through "tho nursery
part of the house," as ho expressed it,
where ho said ho made his quarters
now. Here, in n, beautiful chamber
that was evidently a children's disusod
play-room, broken toys were still strewn
over tho shelves ot tho cabinet, and a
large doll in a pink dress, with broken
arm and leg, dominated tho situation.
It was a pathetic episode in our call
the solitary father standing amid tho
rebes of his ab-cnt little daughters'
babyhood, showing lo strangers but
women, with women's intuitive sense
of tho situation the harrowing remin
ders of a united home.
