Glen wood Opinion: Two couples
married by Rev. T. L. Stephens with
in three months have already separat
ed. This is a good thing for the bus
iness. Ordinarily, a man doesn't need
this kind of Bervice from a minister
more than once in a lifetime. If this
separation business keeps on the way
it has for the last few weeks in this
county, we will get the average down
to once in two years, and we may ex
pect a large influx of ministers.
Fremont Tribune: It was the dem

brought down to the polls, carefully

amazement of their escorters they
voted the Republican ticket. We

"By this time the mare had passed
under the wire at the cry of 'Gol'
6he went along with a still body and
quick legs, head erect, shoulders and
trunk immovable except for their lor
ward motion. It was like an opera
dancer in a difficult pas who confines
her action to her feet. Maud S.' legs
carried her body as if each anatomy
was independent of the other. But at
the first bend in the track she sudden
ly broke into a gallop and had to be re
called. The second start was her suc
cessful one. She went round the
track like a machine. Her head and
back formed a straight line all the
way. The evenness was never one
broken. It seemed to me as if the pace
was all the same, though stop watches
showed that it had varied. When h
passed the three-quarters of a mile
pole the crowd set up a great cheer.
The fastest time ever madel ex
claimed my Jocky Club friend, 'one
minute, thirty six seconds.'- Turning
into the home stretch, the 171416 came
along evident!) quickening her speed,
and she was watched in breathless si
lence, as if the entire concourse was
one man watchinp the second on one
top-watch. It was an anxious crowd,
its heart beating with hope, as if the
fate of a nation depended upon Maud
S. and her driver, whose voice was sud
denly heard breaking in upon the gen
eral silence. The driver was urging
the mare on, not with whip, not with
spur, but with an earnest, eager cry,
to which she responded. On she
came with an easy stride that did not
suggest speed so much as grace and
elegance. Hil yah!' shouted her
driver and the next moment she passed
the wire or winning post in a tumult
of enthusiasm. A negro groom in at
tendance on the mare flung up his
watch and his hat and rushed after
her. A great cry went up all over the
place; ladies waved their handker
chiefs, men flung up their hats and
shook hands with each other. 'Two
ten and a half.' 'Two ten and three
quarters T shouted one to another.
In the midst of the joyous commotion,
the mare and her driyer came back lo
be clothed and admired. She was sur
rounded by a crowd; they raised her
blanket to pat her with fond hands.
A darkey hugged her - one man kissed
her. She received these . attentions as
meekly and as gently as a pet pony
might submit to the caresses of chil
dren. Then the time was officially
announced, the crowd cheered once
more, and Maud S. disappeared, while
her performance was binc tele
graphed 'to all parts of the civilized
world and Russia, as Mr. Sutherland
Edwards puts it 'You have seen the
bijrgest thing America can show you'
said my pleasant companion of the
Jocky Club, taking me by the hand, I
congratulate you.' "

A Cor. of the St. Louis Globe Dein
oci at thus does up some of Nebraska's
most famous politicians:
Nebraska politicians are faring
quite handsomely at the hands of the
new Administration. Thiee Post
masters have already been appointed
and confirmed, two other gentlemen
nave by this time received their com
mission as officers of the Government
Land Offices and one as Indian Agent.
By the way, this young State has suc
ceeded in turning loose into Uncle
Sam's pasture quite a number of po
litical colts outside of the State. The
following occur to me now as I write:
Henry 21. Atkinson, Surveyor General
of New Mexico, who has at leas thiee
Nebraska gentlemen in his employ;
John J. Gosper, Secretary of the Ter
ritory of Arizona; ex-Govenor James
and Judge Sweet, Land office in Wash
ington Territory ; Nate Porter and C.
H. Gould, Land Office, Miles City,
Montrna; W. H. U. Llewellyn, Agent
Mescalero Indians, Mescalero Agency,
N. M.. who has two Nebraskans hold
ing positions under him; B. H. Bai
rows, Consul to Dublin; N. K. Griggs,
consul to Chemnitz, Germany ; O. H.
Irish, Bureau of Printing, Washing
ton ; T. C. Tipton, in Government em
ploy at Bristol, England; ex-Governor
Furnas, now in California a3 member
of Agricultural Commission; G. F.
Blanchard, J. S. Collins, J. W. Pad
dock, S. T. Cole, and others, post aud
Indian traders in the Territories;
Judge Peabody, Pension Agent; E. C
Ktfgers died in Vera Cruz, Mexico,
where he was consul ; ii. 5. ixaley had
been appointed ana continued to the
Couulbip of Chemnitz, but died be
fore he could assume the duties of Win
position; Gea. John M. Thayer was
Goveuor of Wyoming a number of
years, and Hou. Church Howe was
Marshal of the same Territory. B. F.
Pottinger and Judge J. F. Kinney
bays held government positions in
LUba; J. C, -Myers was Consul to
Shanghai until he had uu unpleasant
ness with Fred Seward, aud a dozen
other politicians of the State have
been at various times in one part of
the globe or another as representatives
of the stars and stripes, to nothiug of
the small army of clerks in depart
ments at Washington, and in tht? uen-
sion, postal, revenue auu inaian eer
vice. verily, Nebraska has fed to
consideraole extent at the Federal
crib. Senator Kellogg, of Louisiana,
ana ex-benator fepencer, of Ueoreia,
were Nebraskans in the old Terr: tonal
days. The former gentleman takes
considerable pleasure in saying that
when he first entered the Senate he
shook hands with Messrs, Thayer and
Tipton, of Nebraska, aud Spencer of
Georgia, and, before his term expired,
with Senator Hitchcock, and when he
returned the second lime found Sena
tors Paddock and Saunders member
of that body, all of whom he was as
sociated with iu Nebraska, and all of
whom boarded at the old Herndon
House, in Omaha, together. When
Kellogg was here, lie was Territorial
Judge under appointment of Abraham
Lincoln. Sttuiideta was Governor;
Paddock, Secretary ; Hitchcock, United
Staus Mai si al ; Thayer, Colonel of the
1st Nebraska Regiment, and Tipton,
Captaiu of a company in the same
regiment. They with Spencer, all
brought up Iu this United States Sen
ate within fifteen jars. These prairie
Territories, Nebraska, Kansas, Minne
sota, and Iowa, have been quite pro
line in production of ready made
Ex-Senator Thayer now resides at
Grand Island, this State, where he has
a contract for delivering Government
freight to certain pools. He is believ
ed to be in training for the Senatorial
race in January, 1&83, to succeed Saun
ders. Ex-Senator Tipton resides in
Brownville, and is engaged iu no busi
ness. He preaches and ltctures occa
sionally. In the last State campaign
he was a candidate for Governor on
the Democratic ticket. He is, politi
cally, a dead duck. Ex-enator Hitch
cock died a few months ago. Ex Sen
ator Paddock- reside iu Beatrice,
where he has time and opportunity to
reflets upon the uncertainties of poli
tico and the beauties of agriculture.
Both the present Nebraska Seuators
were Garfield adherents, and can not
by any means be denominated Stal
warts at the present time and there
is considerable speculation as to what
influence they will have with Mr.
Arthur. Some of the "scooped" Grant
men are quietly smiling to themselves
at the predicament the senior Sonator
(Saunders) finds himself in. It was
he who had the ear of President Hayes
during the past four years, and well
nigh controlled the patronage of the
State during that period. Mr. Saun
ders' vote decided the New York Cus
tom House squabble of four years ago,
and that decision ousted Mr. Arthur.
It now remains to be seen . whether
Mr. Arthur has forgotten the part en
acted by. our senior Senator in that
contest. To say the . least, the said
senior Senator evidences some embar
rassment over the recent awkward
shaping of events, and stands on his
The biggest chincapin tree we ever

Between 200 and 300 persons can bo

it can furnish over 800 persons a quart

The 180 feet n round is not the body,
but the limbs gracefully hanging to the
ground la ien with fruit. It forms a
moat comfortable tent, and is one of
the old pioneer trees of the state.
The World of Art.
Art has a large place and a great in
fluence in the world, and it is an unde
niable fact that progressive civiliza
tion may be guaged by the degree of
attention paid to objects of refined
beauty and pure, elevating loveliness.
It is not many years since, that good
pictures could only be afforded by the
very rich, but now all this is changed,

of money may now be purchased for
the veriest trifle, and if the least judg

or if the purchaser has no taste in
such matters, all that is necessary is
for him to be sure that he purchases
the goods of a reliable house. In this
connection it may be proper for us to
mention the great Art Publishing firm
of Messrs. George Stinsoa & Co., Port
land, Maine, who during the last year,
have sold over ten millian of pictures.
It is believed that they pay more for
postage stamps than any other house,

Editor of the Times: In leadinsr
the last number of j our paper. I no
ticed you asked all who had been ben
efited by the letter published in your
valuable paper about a vear aco. to
write you the facts for publication.
The letter from Dr. Cates created a
great amount of excitement in this
vicinity, as he is well and favorablv
known by evero one here. His repu
tation as a man and as a physician
gave every one the utmost confidence
in all his statements, and this of
course, soon made tbo name "Kendall's
Spavin Cure" not only familiar, but
vary popular. In reply to your re
quest I will say : About nine years ago I
supped on the ice and sprained any
right limb at the knee joint. I was
very lame and suffered excruciating
pain much of the time since, and some
of the time thought I should be a
cripple for life. Dr. Bates letter
printed in your paper gave me so
much confidence in the virtues of
Kendall's Spavin Cure" that I tried it
for ray knee and less than one bottle
completely cured me so that I have
had no return of pain or lameness, for
wnich, of course, I cannot feel too
thankful. Since my recovery I have
visited friends in the west and found
that the following parties have used it
with the grandest results in that part
of the country. The Rev. John Rice,
Hematite, Missouri, used it on his own
person for an injury of 35 years stand
ing and performed one of the most
wonderful cures I ever heard of. J.
L. Mct'lure, of Strong City, Kansas,
cured a badly lace-rated and poisoned
hand, from a hog bite and also re
moved an enlargement near the hip
joint which had become large and
troublesome. He also used it for
pleurisy and found that bathing his
chest with . if relieved him at once.
To my surprise I found that this won
derful remedy was better known in
the west than it was in the east, and
I found they were using it there for
all animals as well as ocu human flesh
with the very best of results, and I
find so many cases wherever I go to
confirm the favorable opinion I had
already formed of it that I am glad of
an opportunity of telling the readers
of your valuable paper what I have
learned in regard to i. Hoping to
hear from others upon this very im
portant subject, esptciallv important
to those who have suffered for years
like myself, I remain,;

The English Samson.
A man of great strenjrth was William
Joy, known in his day as "the English
Samson." He was a native of Kent,
having been born near Ramsgate in
1C74. From an early period of Lis lifo
he displayed remarkable strength and
dexterity for his years, and when 24
years of age he be aran publicly to ex
hibit his astoni-hing feats. Among
other of Joy's perfomances, he is said
to have been able to retain and keep
in place a strong horse, urged by whip
to escape his powerful rein, solely by
the check of his pulL without any stay
or support whatever. Aided by a strong
leathern girdle or belt, and uupporting
himself by pressing his arms on a rail
ing. he could lift from the ground a
stone said to be a ton weight. He also
broke asunder a rope fastened to a wall,
which hal previously borno more than
a ton and a half weight without
breaking. Notwithstanding his great
strength, he was possessed of singular
ly aiio anil flexible joints, many won
derful stories being told of Lis feats in
this respect, such as placing a glass
of wine on the sole of his foot, which
he could twist round with Lis hands,
and conveying the glass in this way to
Lis mouth without spilling
