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".

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.

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 may not have had as nn.ch rain at all times as would have c en desirable, 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 ience and actual suffering to ni c.-sind and the brute creation from lac of 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. A Rare Chance.

One of the principal features of this number is the portrait of George Eliot, by 15rr ton, which Mrs. Cross' family put forth through The Century Magazine as the authorized likeness of the great novelist. The poi trait is accompanied by an account also authorized of her religious and philosophic beliefs, by Frederick W. H. Myers. 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 fortablo dark-cloth shooting-jacket, with no vest, lino linen, well laundricd, with low-turned collar, and Loiland pantaloons of light bluff gray. Ho spoko freely of his old life in the Senate 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. lTen'8 Work and "Women's Tho finest looking specimens of man hood, in every class, are to bo found among men between tho ages of and 50, but how many comely women can bu found even among thoso who have compassed only the smaller num. bjr of j ears mentioned above? Tho homo work of women, whether sho bo wife or servant, needs revision ; if only genius can enable a person to bo at'lho same timo master and servant, nurso and ruler, then geniusin this direction, if there is any, should mako itself known for the benefit of thoso who aro fighting magnificently against over whelming odds. With a slighter phy sique than man, a physique that is oc casionally subject to peculiar duties to which that of man can offer no paralkl, woman is expected to daily endure a strain that no man would lolcralo for any length of tinie. Until what is mod estly called housekeeping is recog nized as the noble science that it really is, and is carefully studied, tho slaughter of women by overwork will continue, for at present it requires that every wo man shall bo a prodigy of se nse, in dustry and endurance.

The a-'sthelio tastes of some of our young people as displayed in their dress are, to use the language of tho sai I y. p., "too utter." Ono young lady, often seen on the streets, and who is prominent in lawn tennis tourna ments, has a dress, the underskirt of which, at a short distance, looks liko bed-ticking, while the overskirt appears to be of rod and white awning cioth. Tho basque is of turkey red, and on her head she wears a red knit cap sbrv cd like a sailor s. Sho has many iniitat us who approach her iu unique ness with onlv indifferent success.
