THURSDAY, DEC. I, 1881.
The trial of the afassin, Guiteau,
still drags its weary length along, and
apparently w no nearer the end than
when it first begun. Guitcau's broth
er was called to the witncM stand, and
from the nature of Iih testimony we
should say that he thinks Guiteau
eane enough to hang.
The trial of the assassin of General
Garfield is a national disgrace. If the
judge, counsel, and spectators, who
greet the progress of the case with
"much laughter," were examined by
a commission of insanity, no doubt
reason would be found why the trial of
the murderer of our president should
be made to resemble a second-class
circus performance. Omaha Dec
Hogs tni High Priced Corn.
The question is now nn open one
as to what course farmers, through
the great corn-raising district of the
country will pursue, in tho immedi
ate future as to the matter of raising
and fattening hogs. The effects of
the drouth that has so generally pre
vailed sjnee the 1st of July, operating
to cut short the corn crop and cause
a large advance In the price of corn,
has naturally brought this question
to a point. A good many farmers
will no doubt tako an exaggerated
view of the whole subject, and pro
ceed to sell their young hogs for
what they can get, and shorten their
hog iiroduction to the lowest
point, under the belief that corn
will bring an extravagant high price.
But if all farmers would act upon
this principle there is no doubt but
what the recent supply of corn in
tho country would become a drug in
the market. The real koy note as to
the sound principlo involved in the
case, was struck here the other day
by the Indiana farmer who brought
a fino lot of hogs to market and sold
them at the high prices prevailing,
and said he had realized eighty cents
per bushel for all the corn he had fed
them; certainly an cxtiavagantly
high price for a farmer to realize for
corn at his door. The farmers of
the country can not afford to stop hog
raising. This business will bo in the
future as it has been in the past the
easiest and best way to dispose of our
corn. When corn for any reason be
comes scarce and advances in price,
the price of prok is certain to keep
pace- with it. Wo now have a vast
trade cs-tablNhed for our hog market
in all the leading foreigu markets,
and this will operate to make hog
raising in our country n more relia
ble business than it has ever hereto
fore been. Shelled corn soaked in a
proper manner until it becomes soft
will go about twice as far in feeding
a hog as corn fed in the car will go.
Farmers under the present condition,
shauld of course, adopt tho best
method possiblo in feeding and car
ing for their hogs, and keep right on
at the business for it will pay big.
"A Eojal Oentlea&n."
Is the title of another book from tne
graphic pen of Judge Tourgee, the
famous author of "A Fool's Errand."
It is to be sold by subscription.
In point of romantic interest "1
Royal Gentleman" is undoubtedly the
strongest of Judge Tourgee's novels,
for the threads of love, mystery, ad
venture, crime, and war and the play
and interplay of personal forces anil
passions, form the whole warp and
woof of the tale. Of political discus
sion there is little or none. And yet
the underlaying causes of the state of
mitul which brought on the war, and
which has, since the war, so persist
ently and with wonderful audacity
striven to secure to the Southern
Whites in the political field what they
lot on the field of battle these things
arc made so simnlo and clear by the
developement of character and plot,
that we wonder we had not known it
Certainly it is a book that no cduca-
ieu nr liui'iiigem man or woman can
afford to leave unread. It gives with
wonderful power the very color and
air of that sweet Southern land; the
bright and sunny pictures of planta
tion life; the pleasant relations of
white and black; the generous impul
sive; wayward character of the "voting
Southern blood;" the quaint, queer,
and yet unmistakably accurate por
traits of the Poor white, the Old Law
yer, the" antique County Clerk, and
other local personages; tlie growth of
the little quadroon darkey into the
beautiful woman; the quick blast of
coming battle; rapid pen-pictures of
war and hospital scenes, with actual
incidents in which Aaraham Lixcolk,
Sumner, and other men of note figur
ed during that grand period and in
numerable elements beside, go to help
form this brilliant and instructive
picture of an era in our country's life,
that has now passed awav forever.
It is the strongest presentation of
the blighting effect of Slavey upon the
nwster race that has ever been penned.
And it takes its place among Judge
Tourgee's striking historical pictures
as a worthy peer of the best of them,
dastined to hold his name in remem
The book is brilliantly illustrated.

WHAT 13 IT?
tat ZUls lakft
J. C. Gibblc, a well known farmer
of Dakota county, arrived in the city
yesterday. He tells a remarkable
story regarding a poisonou. mineral
su!tancc which exudes from the
earth in certain portion" of that conn-
ty, and which is death to men and
hore if taken within the tom:ich
This eubstance Mr. Gibblc de-crile- a?
resembling alkali, but materially dif
fering from it in taste ami mioiiou4
effect?. The existence of this ma
terial in the soil has been known for
sometime, but it has only been within
the past year that its effect on men
and horses has become known, the
mnnv deaths ninontr the outlines beint!
a-cribed to other cau-es. During the .
" , ,
past season 3Ir. tfiiinie nas lost several (
lrood horses from this cause. hen
the second horse was taken sick, he
ascribed the trouble to hots or worms
and ued remedies for these troubles.
Instead of improving, however, the
horse continued to suffer from some
internal trouble, whirh ba filed tho
skill of veterinary physicians, and it
finally refused food altogether and
To satisfy himself, Mr. Gibblc open
ed the body of the animal and found
but four bots or worms, but still the
stomach was almost entirely eaten
away. He was still at a loss to deter
mine the cause of this, as, together
with others, he had never considered
the snowy inciustations appearing in
places upon the ground other than a
kind of harmless alkali. One day he
was passing a newly cut bluff from
which this substanco appeared in con
siderable quantities, when curiosity
prompted him to taste it. Ho only
touched his tongue, and found it
rather sweet in Lisle and at first ap
parently harmless. In an hour or
two, however, his tongue began to
swell and burn, and this inflamation
continued two or three days, resisting
all soothing applications. Finally
the inflamation subsided, almost as
quickly as it came, and his tongue and
mouth gradually healed.
A few weeks previous to this, Jame9
Wcscott, a farmer living four miles
west of Dakota City, was attacked
with a peculiar internal ailment. He
was ill two or threo days and then
suffered intense pain for a week, when
he died. All possible efforts were
made to relieve him, but none of tho
remedies used seemed to affect any
thing. A post mortem examination
disclosed his stomach to be much in
flamed and eaten away in places.
The surgeons pronounced it a case of
poisoning, but by what particular
poison they were unable to discover.
Mr. Gibhlcs says that he is satisfied,
as are the members of Wescott's fam
ily and his friends, that the unfortu
nato man had been drinking water
from a slough, where the poisonous
A rather strango fact connected
with this poisonous encrustation is
that cattle like it, and lick it up,
without being injured. Gibbles
thinks that tho poisonous properties
are taken into the stomachs of the
horses in water forming in pools on
the gound where this material appears
during wet weather; as all of the ani
mals lie has lost have been taken sick
during or after heavy falls of rain. At
such times a number of animals
throughout that section of tho county
always are laid up and many die, de
spite the most strennous precautions.
As yet no remedy has been found. A
successful antidote for the poison
would be alike a blessing to the farm
ers and a bonanza for its dis
coverer. FSA2TS LESUS'S FOPULAB H0KTSL7.
There arc even more than the usual
attractive features in the December
