all along the J. & M. and fr many
miles into the country, the land i
greatly improved and farmers are very
well to do. having their faring under a
fine state of cultivation, well slocked,
and pretty thoroughly set out with
young orchard- and ornniiietiud trees,
while their large field.- are groaning
with all kinds of cereal-, vegetables,
etc. The Nebraska fanner beats the
world for energy and ambition.
we boarded the I -nioii J'.icilie and
cro--ed the great bridge that -pans
the 'Kig Muddy" ami a few minutes
later were landed in Council Kltitrs in
our neighboring state of Iowa, where
after waiting a few hours we took the
(J. I.'i train for Chicago. All along
our journey we noticed with pleasure
the evident prosperity of the farming
cla--. The farmers in Iowa have
their farm-, mo-tlv well fenced, and
improved -ubtantially. but find it
much liaider to till the -oil than our
Nebra.-ka farmer do, we are told, et
the crop.- on our outward journey
lookcd-T.ell, the onh draw-back being
the scarcity of rain, something that
rarely occurs in Iowa. The town.- and
cities are very much the same 111 Iowa
as they are farther ca-t i. e. about at
standstill, their mo-t cnurpri-iiig btts-ine-s
men having adopted the west for
their abiding place in the future.
While tlii-. statement i.- not true in
every ca.-e it is generally so. The
country thioiigh which the Kock 1-1-aud
load passes is decidedly beautiful
and picturc-iiie. and i1- certainly a
vi'iy niee place to live, upon the
whole. At about 7. 'JO a. 111. .we ar
rived in Davenpoit ami-after a shoit
delay we again took up our journey
for Chicago. Cro.-sing the Mississip
pi which is about a mile wide at .Da
venport, we -oon reached the Illinois
shore, passing Covernofs j.-latid
where the United State- have located
large armories and arsenal- for the
manufacturing of munitions of war,
on an extensive plan. From .Kock
I -land one doe- not see a gieat deal
of the country, ;h portion- of it are
quite blufly, vet enough can he ob
served to show that Illiuoi- is .-till
farmed by indu-trious farmers, and
on a large cale. For mile- the rail
way skirt- along the Illinois river
and the Michigan and Illinois canal,
and mo-t of the towns and citie.
thereon are thoroughly enterprising,
ami full of different manufacturing
establishments, and here and there a
coal mine is to be m en. and that, too,
in nearly every town. Fuel i- pretty
cheap in Illinois Good grade- of
-oft coal sell at $L' to $2. 10. and hard
coal varying from "rO.lU to $7. People
do not have to burn corn in Illiuoi- in
the place of coal, a? fuel is in the
reach of all. La S.dle. Illinois, a
town of 1 1,000, there are all kinds of
manufacturing, glas- works, coal miue
ete.. and by far the mo-t dirty city we
ever saw for " one that bott-ts of being
better than it i-. It i- built upon a
-ide hill mostly, ami i- an;, thing but
a hatid-ome town, and yet it i- full of
vim and enterpri-e. and is lighted with
electric lights. About L'.'.'O we
reached Chicago, after having pacd
through some noted towns, among
which was Joliet, one of the most
flourishing little cities in Illinois. At
Chicago we found every train loaded
with Knights of 1'uhia- and their
friends, all bound fur Toronto. At
3:'J0 p. in. we boarded the Chicago &
Grand Trunk limited ?xpre-s. and at
3:'!." were whirling rapidiv along
through the environs of Chicago, and
making fast ttnte for the Hooier
state, where :nosipiitos ami ague go j
linked arm in arm. seeking whom
they may devour, the former presenting-
a bill at every opportunity, the
latter making you shake 'to look at it.
About the only towns of note that
one pa-e? through on the C. & G. T.
in Indiana are Valparaiso and Sjuth
Demi, the latter place being the home
of the revered vice president, .--ehuy-ier
Colfax, ami headquarters for the
.tudebaker wagon work-, and other
large manufacturing establishments.
South Dend is a very prosperous citv.
Farming in Indiana is very nine & the
same as in western states, only it is
not done on so large a scale. FJut
one begins to -ee quite a change in
farming; from what one is accustomed
to seeiug in Nebraska. There corn
i is not rai-ed tarreiy at all tthat i- in

desirable to travel nad pre -rut charm

Sunday morning' wo arrived at Flint.

ies we have ever locked upon. Fverv

outdo hi- neighbor in keeping his res

decorated, and in front of nearly ev
ery residence the lawn extends into
the street from fifteen to tweuiv feet,
and by the plentiful ue of water
from the water works they are con
stantly kept green and fresh. The
re-ideuces are also verv fine, as niaiiv
very wealthy citizens make their abid
ing pl.jee there. The streets are
paved with block pavement, the side
walks are ol manufactured (lags tone,
and for a city of ll'.OOO it is certainly
hard to beat. The Flint ami Thread
liv eis pass through the city making
the water supply plentiful. The city
is lighted with electricity at a co-t of
several thou-and dollars per year.
eight or nine tliou-atid dollar- we
believe It is certainly a very hand
some place, and a desirable place for a
man of menu1-in Jive in. After a
week's visit in Flint we dropped in at
Otter Lake, where wu visited for sev
eral davs. Here the country i- wood
ed and onl partiailv farmed, but i
list being settled. It ii rough and
very rolling, similar in m.tnv instances
to the country surrounding Ked Cloud
From Utter Lake we went to Fort
Huron, and from there to Carauuville
and 1'oit Huiiulac on Lake Huron,
both quite small cities. Carsonville
is a railroad town, while Sanalac is a
lake town and a very pretty place to
while away a few hours "picking up
shell-," etc.. and boat riding, all of
which wc did. From Fanalae we make
a short trip to Sand Keach to vi-it
iricuds. Sand Keach is located on
Lake Huron, also, and is a very pret
tily located city of about l.."00 popu
lation. The 1'nited State- govern
ment has located a life saving station
there, and has spent several million
dollars in making a harbor of refuge
for stranded or -tonu caught jdiips.
large numbers of which put in there
cveryyycar.t-jI'Ssl year the life saving
station saved over 'JO wrecks that oc
curred ofi" the harbor. The working
of the station are complete in vwry
respect and a ship would find it hard
to be wrecked with a very great ljw
of life before help would be tendered
fiom the station, that i- within reas
onable dl-tauei- of the shore. The
government ha- aYQ erected and
maintain a large and c".en-ive light
house, built out about .1 mih and a
