18 miles west of Washington D. C,
situated on tho Richmond ic Danvillo

and what is nqw known as Vienna,
was tho scene of one of the first, if
not the.ttpt battles, that was inaugu
rated fer the purposo of firing the
southorB'blood into fighting fervor.
ua a.'htgb piece of ground lying ad
jaoenl to the railway, and about a half
mile' from an abrupt ourvo in the road
was planted a huge piece of artillery,
and here there hid in ambush several
confederates who waited for a train, to
come bound for tho interior loaded with
soldiery to subdue the rebel,!. The
train came one day and without any
previous notioe the artillery belohed
forth and its deadly missile tore
through tho train atrewing death and

of the psBt.
The famous Potomac river is with
iateight miles, and silently but majes
tically Iowa down to the sea. The
"big fslls" which kccpilf) an irrcsil-
and overrating roar, as the elements
in large volumes goes dashing over
the Immense rooks, lashing itself into
foam, as it falls over the preeipitoas
heights, is a dueling speotaele and
fills ono with awe at the magnitude
of the greatness of the creator. Tbey
can not bo described, hence a trip to
them is necessary to grasp their im
mensity. Here it was that the Immort
al Washington more than a 100 years
ago in order to pass these great falls
constructed a eanal around them, and
to-day the old bed and the looks are
there, that wero built under the direc
tion of the greatest and most adored
man that ever sot foot on the Ameri
can eontinent. The soene of his head
quarters, during tho revolution, was
hero and tho old walls of the house,
and jail, where prisoners were kept,
are still standing, hut timo has used
them hard and in a fow more years
no trace of the plaoe where the
sacred head of tho Father of our
Country was housed will be in obliv
ion, and tho place that onee knew
him will bo revored only in the imag
imation. Being somewhat thirsty we
wore led to the identical spring,
where Washington to quenoh his thirst
and thore drank of its pure waters.
If Georgo could havo been there and
observed an editor drinking; water,
we have no doubt but what he would
have banished us into the realms
whero most printers are expeoted to
go. We didn't drink enough of the
water however to see the identical
ohirry troe that waa supposed to be
lurking in that neighborhood, but we
have since beon informed that it had,
been made into eanal boats years ago.
a Wo are indebted to Major Freeman
and Captain Salisbury for our infor
mation. Both of these gentleman are
f among the best citizens of Vienna and
wo snail always romember thorn gra
ciously for their efforts to mako our
stay in Virginia both profitable and
After our pleasant stay in Vienns,
we visited at tho residence of our old
friends, Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Kenney,
who are nicoly located in ono of the
most pleasant portions of Washington.
Mr. Kenney has a very profitable po
sition in the government printing of
fice, and we are pleased to know that
he is on the high road to prosperity.
We are indebted to Mr. and Mrs.
Kenney for a pleasant boat ride on
the Potomao to Marshall Hall, Mt.
Vernon, and other interesting places,
also to many of the interesting pnblie
places in Washington. The young
friends of Lewis and Roy Kenney
will be pleased to know that these
young gentlemen are doing nicely,
that each have a good position and are
improving their opportunities,
While in the oapitol elty, we saw
tho president and visited the White
Houro in company with Mr. Kenney.
Also.the navy yard, treasury building,
museum, Smithsonian Institute, and
in faot all the important sights that
wero to be seen.
The oapitol building, whioh is the
wonder and admiration of the people
from all parts of the world, is a living
monument to the freest country that
the sun ahinos upon. It is a nsaeniff-
eent building, and we do not feet able
to describe it in this article.
While going through the oapitol we
driftod into the rooms of Senator
Paddock, ohairman of the committee
on Agrioulture, and were extended a
hearty welcome and all of the courtes
ies that a oitiien of the great state of
JNebraska eould wish.
Our stay in Washington was brief,
but we wore there long enough to lean
that Nebraska's senators are among
the most respected of all the senators,
and with hardlv an exeention are to
be found in their seats working for
aobraska's interests. They command
tho closest- attentions and are classed
among the ablest men in the senate.
We also saw Congressman Mo-
Keighan and daughter, Miss Edith,
We also mot Mr. and Mrs. Bayard,
Mrs. Bayard will be remembered as
Miss Strohm. by Red Cloud people.
Also had the ploasurenf meeting Prof,
Castor in Washington's monument,
and as we were there for the same
purpose wo took the elevator and as
cended to its ditiy heights.
