enterprise, Bro. Connell.
As was expected, the eastern papers
have dilated upon our late storm, they
havo exaggerated, prevaricated and mis
represented the facta, (assisted by that
visionary eonocriT of tl?e south end of
Red Cloud, of which we had reason to
expect better things) until hardly a vis
toge of the truth remains. Instead of
the damage to property in Red Cloud,
by tho 6torm, reaching $40,000 as stated
by an excited editor in Red Cloud Inst
week, it trill not reach $.10,000 all told.
Tbe present Season has" been praliffic
of storms throughout the entire territory
of the United States. Within tho Jast
six weeks there has been some of tho
most frightful tornadoes that ever visited
any country, and in some instances the
loss of life and property has been terri
ble. Those who think that this section
of country has been specially unfortu
nate should know that the reverse is the
case, for while we have been visiteQ with
a cyclone that did considerablo damage
to properly, other sections, less fortu
nate, have been devastated by storms
fearfully destrustive to human life.
Among these we might mention the re
cent storm in Kansas, in which over
fifty persons lost their lives. The late
storm at Dubuque Iowa, in which hcveral
persons were killed. The fearful cyclone
at Augusta Georgia. The terrible wind
and hail storm at Bordcrtown. N. J.

Ed. Chief. The crops are looking
very well considering the dry weather
and chintz bugs. Tho chintz bugs are
working on the small grain some and arc
working in our garden. They have de
stroyed some of our radishes and lettuce.
We are needing a good rain now, al
though wc had a nico little rain Tuesday
evening, also on Thursday morning we
had a nice shower and a good little show
er on Friday, but on Tuesday some hail
fell doing 'no great damage. The frost
on the 1st and 2d, done some little dam
age to corn and garden vegetables.
Corn is growing 'fine and generally is a
very good stand without replanting.
Rye and Barley will do to harvest in
about two weeks if we have pleuty of
rain, and if not it will be ripe sooner.
Well tbe big thow came and went and
with it a great deal of excitement and
fun. I went to see the big show and
like all othera.that went to see it I was
sold, it was about as complete a failure
as I ever seen ia the. show bo-ines, but
