In 1873 the Webster County Agri
cultural Society was organized, and a
very creditable fair held the same fall.
A very fair showing of vegetables was
exhibited. The following summer
1874, being the memoriable grasshop
per year, ne fair was held. In 1875 a
good showing of cereals and vegetables
were brought out Last fall, 1876,
more interest was, perhaps, manifest
ed than at any of the preceding fairs,
and the productions of Webster county
were exhibited at the State Fair at
Lincoln, and the Society received a
medal therefor. The showing of this
county both at the county and 8tate
Fairs might have been far better thaa
it was, had the people taken an inter
est in the matter. The good that
would be the inevitable result of a fair
showing of this counties productions
at the State Fair u incalculable, as it
demonstrates to the outside world the
mot that notwithstanding the false re
ports and rumors that are regularly
sent out from this valley by persons
who are not satisfied anywhere, that
this soil and climate is capable of pro
ducing all kinds of grain indigevous to

The Webster County Agricultural
Society now has over twenty life mem
bers and owns a lease en 40 acres of
land adjoining town, and may Be said
to ha on a good footing, and by a little
exertion and co-operation of the farm
ers of the county, may be made to be
a grand success, a credit to the county
and the Republican valley. The pre
mium fist, we presume, will soon be
printed and a copy of the same placed
in the hands of every farmer in the
ounty, and we hope that the awaken
ing of a general interest will be the re

It is stated on good authority that
the Omaha & Republican Valley road
will be extended to Lincoln during the
year of 1877. If that should be done,
it would be with the intention of
building a road through this section in
the interests of the Union Pacific ; and
no matter what Gould's raterests
would be, it wonld be a great benefit
to this county if built to Fail bury. It
is only too apparent that both the B.
& M. and U. P. companies want the
Republican Valley, and we are satisfi
ed that one of the two will have a road
there in time to carry off the next
crop, if they are satisfied that the
crops will be good. Fairbury Oaxette.
The business man says he is going
to quit advertising by standing card,
and turn his attention to locals. He
is sure locals pay much better. For a
week or two he gets np his locals
promptly, and then he disappears from
the newspaper columns entirely. Uis
intentions are good enough, hut he
stops at that point, aad if the people
wish to know whether he is still ia
business they must inquire after him.
Gentlemen, a standing card is what
you want, to let the people know that
you are still in business, aad fling
arsuad your locals promiscuously to
let them koow what you have to sell,
aad at what price. Fairbury Tum.

The grasshoppers are gone, aa
abundance of rain has prepared the
ground admirably for rapid produc
tion. Small grain is in splendid con
dition, corn is being planted in large
quantities, prices are remunerative,
and land is cheap. We ate an agri
cultural people and this is an agricul
tural and stock raising country. Mer
man horses of the best blood, Berk
shire and Poland China swine, &c,
have been brought from the east, and
are here for the lovers of fine stock.
Beautiful rolling prairies, covered with
nutrioious, succulent grasses, stretch
out as far as the eyo can reach, ready
for the plow to ohange with moderate
labor into broad, cultivated fields of
growing grain. These are facts upon
which there is no discount, and white
no man can attain to excellence with
out labor and perhaps some privations
we firmly believe that a shortest route
to a competency for poor men of de
termination lies across the country on
the shortest practicable route to these
western plains. The people are now
full of hope over the prospects bud
ding for the future. The grasshopper
scare and the rain clouds have passed
away together, and hope, bright mon
itor, is aglow in the hearts of all Ne-braskians.
