Henry Clarke, the president of the
Nebraska and Kansas Farm Loan
company, who has just returned from
a trip through the west was met this
morning by the Listener. Mr. Clarke
who is as brown as a berry, was quite
enthusiastic in speaking of the west,
particularly of Nebraska, where his
observations were more directed, The
indications are that this year's pro
duct will be marvelous, exceeding in
amount any five years previous. In
stead of a scarcity of nin, which was
the rule so that two years ago the far
mers were discouraged, has there been
abundance. One change noticeable
in the southern tier is the absence
of buffalo grass, which has given away
to long growing hay. Nebraska was
the first state in the union to adopt
Arbor day and last year 30,000,000
trees were planted. Formerly ene
could look across the prairie for
miles and miles and nothing but the
tall grass would greet the eye. Now
little groves of trees are seen at diff
"The whole west is one great corn
field." said Mr. Clarke, 'and I have
seen 320 acres into which a horseman
could ride and be lost to view. Only
last week I was in one field where the
corn reached a height of six feet The
average yield per acre is 60 bushels.
Formerly the corn was sold as cheap
ly as fuel but now the great bulk of it
is fed to cattle. This has broken up
the great cattle herding business, for
every farmer has a bunch of cattle of
ten or twelve head, and as many as
fifty hogs. Instead of deriving a
little profit from corn they realize a
good return from the sale of cattle.
If the coming two yean are anything
like as prosperous as the present
and there's no reason why they
shouldn't be every farmer with a
mortgage on his form can easily wipe
it out. The richness of the soil will
be appreciated when it is known that
the livery stable men can get bo one
to take their manure, and are compell
ed to dnmp it in ravines and out-of-the-way
places. Albany (N. Y.)

When the editor of this paper was
appointed pastor of the Red Cloud
M. E. church over three years ago,
Will N. King was the editor of the
Helmet, published in that city. We
immediately began building, and Mr.
King promised $5 provided he did
not go to prison for a cowardly as
sault he had made upon a prominent
citizen. He did not languish in pris
on, though no fault of his, however.
Neither did he pay that subscription.
Now this young man is allowed to go
to the poor farm of Douglass county,
to end his days more comfortably
than in jail, being in rapidly failing
health, and under sentence for for
gery. The poorhouse would contain
an interesting throng should it envel
op all the delinquent subscriptionists
to church enterprises. Nebraska
Methodist July 11, 18S9.
The above is a sample, it may not
be uncharitably assumed, of the char
ity Gove) felt in the hearts of many
such men of God falsely so called
in the church for which the Jlebraska
Methodist is a mouth piece. Paul
complained of Alexander the copper
smith doing him great evil, but in
what the injury consisted we are not
informed. It may be that Alexander
being in some way connected with
the treasury raised some obstacle that
gave that great preacher serious trou
ble. Then too, Paul alludes to it
simply in a letter to the brethren.
Now. Will N. King had a sore beset
ment, viz., an appetite for strong
drink. But just what may have been
his disappointments and troubles and
sorrows in life leading up to the mis
take of trying to drown his sorrows in
the bowl, no one now can tell. Foi
since tho publication of the editorial
now being discussed, the spirit of Will
N. King ceased to longer occupy the
poor diseased and emaciated body at
that date lying upon the humble cot
furnished by the peopk for the un
fortunate poor. But who can say
that when the spirit of Will N. King
passed the threshold of the other world
there were not angles of mercy there
offering to shield Lim from the rays
of heat that eminate from the throne
of an angry God.
After all, who can say that in the
economy of grace it has not been so
ordered that all who pass the threshold
of the unknown world may at once
enter upon a course that will, if not
rejected, lead up to a higher and more
exalted state of being. Who can say
that Will N. King did not intend to
pay that church subscription when he
subscribed and would have done so
but for the fine of $100.00 which he
had to provide for?
Who can say that the very fact of
his having to pass through that ordeal
did not cause him to overlook his
Wht can say that the mere fact of
his having in some way failed to pay
that obligation made the above edi
torial in relation thereto either manly

Will N. King was not himself for
several years last proceeding his death
and wa not considered morally re
sponsible for his conduct.
Those of us who knew him best will
attest to his generosity of soul as well
as to his possession of no mean ability
as a journalist.
We are sorry to feel that the author
of the foregoing editorial was prompt
ed by a spirit sneh as might prompt
a meaner man to write upon the hum
ble slab that marks the burial place
of the deceased, the following epitaph:
"Here lies aH that is mortal of the
man who failed to pa; his church sub
