Mil. J. L. MiNKit,
Rod Cloud, Neb.,
Dk.au Sin: I have just finished my
work in South Dakota, and a fow days
ago camo into this state. Tho wheat
crop in tho two Uakotaa is looking very
fine. Farmers hero say that they hnvo
not had a bolter prospect for 1(1 years.
Tho itcreagn in South Dakota is small,
howovor, ns tho farmers are. as a rule,
very poor and could not got tho seed I
think there is at least '2.1 por cont of tho
cultivated hind in northeastern South
Dakota that is not in uny kind of a crop.
There is more corn planted than usual
because it required Iubb seod. It is a
poor corn country. I loarn that 'i." bush
els is thought it good crop. This coun
try has seen harder tiiea, and nro hav
ing hurder times now, than wo have in
Webster county. Wheat is tho only
crop to tnako monoy (oxcopt llnx) and
thoy huvo but ono paying crop in quan
tity in fivo years, and what littlo thoy
hud a vory low price. Everything in
tho north half of South Dakota denotes
poverty, deserted farms, farm buildings
going to decay, unpaintcd and ompty
buildings in towns, all show tho blight
ing elTect of no money. Ihoro is con
siderable hilly and stony land in Seuth
Dakota, also strenks of light Bandy land.
Will nut uvcrugo but little better in soil
and surface than Webster county, nnd
thoro is not us good n town in northoust
South Dakota (outsido of Watortown
and Aberdeen, which aro railroad cen
ters) ns old Red Cloud. I nm told now
that I am just on tho odge of tho good
country in North Dakota. Just north
of me is tho great Red River Valloy that
Dakotans refer to as "tho greatest land
on earth." I havo business noar tho
great Dalrymplo wheat farm and will try
to soo it, Tho ono great curso of tho
Dnkotas is tho Russian thistlo. It's
blighting effect ennnot bo overdrawn us
fur as appearances go The most deso
luto appearing country that you can im
ngino outsido of Hades is a country
abandoned to this terriblo scourge Thoy
are evorwhoro. Groves are drifted full
of them, nearly to the tops of the trees;
wire fences are banked with them, doop
draws lovel full of them, groat ragged
pilos cf them scattered ovor tho prairies
with dirt enough driftod on thorn to hold
them. Even tho towns uro piled up
with them when thcro ia anything to
stop them. I hopo they peoplo of Ne
braska will uso all diligonco to keep
thorn out. I huvo heard it said (when
they don't hnvo thorn) that they woro
not much of n pest; but that is a groat
mistake. I am told that thoy do not
injuro tho wheat crop much of n wot
year as tho wheut starts first in tho
spring, and if it has n good vigorous
growth it keeps them down till after
harvest, when they appear in all thoir
glory. But of a dry yonr it is vice versa;
thoy grow and choko out tho wheat. In
sandy land thay will grow on tho un
broken prairio and choke out the grass,
but will not grow on sod whon thoro is
heavy land, I nm quito sure it tho
farmers around Red Cloud could soo a
oountry overrun by this scourge, they
would aot allow tho few that may bo
growing thoro now to survive I think
our last legislature passed some kind of
n law for thoir extermination. If of any
good, it should bo rigidly enforced.

On laBt Sunday attornoon at tho real

It is not often that Red Cloud peoplo
liavo tho opportunity of listening to so
if ted an orator ns Sam Jonos. On last
Wednesday night, howover, tho oppor
tunity cnnie, nnd tho opera houso was
literally packed with people fiom all
ovor tho county and for twenty tulles
distant. Sam Jones is a unique charac
ter, nnd is n host within himself. As n
humorist ho is hard to bout, nnd as a
pulpit orator, ho has no equal whon it
comes to saving peoplo from their in
iquities, Ho hns n peculiar way f en
tortnining his nudietico that touches
them nt onco with his honesty of pur
pose. Ho tcfls facts in u much different
way than most men. He places the fol
lies of men in a different category than
they hnvo been used to seeing thorn in,
which ho sends conviction and disgust nt
tho samo timo to tho man of wicked
ways. His tectum at tho opera houso
on "Got Thoro and Stay Thoro" was
prolific with humor, mingled with bril
liant thoughts, nnd enrichod with those
trito snyings, such ns no man but of tho
Sam Jones stripo could uttor without
offonding his nudienco, Every word wns
a twoedgo sword, cutting deep into the
bascneps of human depravity. Ar a
lecturer ho is a sido splitter; as a divine
ho is nn immense power. Tho largo!
audionco wan now spoil-bound for two
hours while Jones poured tho conRommo
into thorn in ono continuous stream. Ho
1b it pleasant speaker, huving enough of
tho southern twang to mnko his conver
sation pleasant to listen to. Ho loft
enough food for thought in Red Cloud
to keep tho peoplo feasting for weeks to
como. Tho lecture was n rnro front and
tho drubbing that imllticlans nnd poli
tical parties received at his hands wus
sufficient to set tho peoplo thinking for
thomsolves for somo timo to como. His
contrasts woro nent. his drollory pleasnnt
nnd his humor out of sight.
Rccontly a prenchor, not ovor n thous
and miles from Red Cloud, preached on
tho toxt: "I will mnko man in my own
imngo." Ho tlion went on to tell tho
congregation how uply tho savages woro,
yot, when toned down by Christian in
fluence, ono could seo tho likeness of
God in their countenance. Ho paid a
glowing tribute to tho missionary who
left homo nnd luxury to civilize tho
cannibnl. How ho, day by day, put
his best efforts forth in thnt direction.
and how ho not only gavo thorn spiritual
food but took them clothing. In a boau
titul word picture ho said: "Soe a mis
sionary after ho had boen away for six
months, going back to tho wilds of Afri
ca, saying to tho mon and wowon, I havo
not only givon you spiritual food but I
havo brought you p ts, and just
thon tho thought struck tho good
man that the women couldn't wear
pants, and ho quickly chnngod tho word
to suits. Tho congregation smiled nud
iby, und the divine looked deep against
tho opposito wall and continuod tho in
teresting story of tho missionary.

A fine story is told on one of the
young business mon of Red Cloud. It
sooms that when he rotirea at night he
places his pantaloons on n chair in a
certain place nour tho bed, so an to be
able to find thorn in caso of fire. Ono
night tho young man was awakened by
tho loud clanging of tho flro bell and,
jumping out of bod, ha went to the win
dow to locate tho blaze On turning
round to don his wonring upparol, he
discovered that ho was unable to find
thoso articles, and, hunt as hard aa ho
might, ho ran across the wrong chair;
but us ho gently rakud hiB shin on tho
edgo of tho bed, a happy thought struck
him. Crawling back into his reclining
upparatus, ho lay his hoad on tho pillow
a fraction of a second and thon, with a
mighty bound, bo reached tho floor and
went straight to tho objects of his
floarch, jumped into halt of them, nnd
shot out upon the street. Liko tho
compass needle points to the north, so
that bed pointod to thoso clothes.
In a beautiful littlo valloy, just south
of the Republican, is located tho lovely
now residence of Mr. and Mrs. Alt Mc
Call. Hero they have lived eighteen
years. This is ono of tho most interest
ing families in Webster county. Those
parents believe in raising corn and hogs
and then in using tho money in tho edu
cation and culturo of tho sons and
daughters. Misses Martha and Mildred
graduated at the Fremont Normal
School in tho teacher's course Inst Juno.
A son attended our city schools schools
last year. Mr. Jamos P, Rhea, a gradu
ate also of Fremont Normal of tho class
of '04, showed good judgment in asking
the M. E. pastor to assist him in secur
ing Miss Martha for hia wife, which we
did, on Juno 18, in our boat form. Mr.
and Mre. Rhoa will reside near Arling
ton on a farm, whore tho groom is mak
ing 120 acres of corn grow. Thoy will
make thoir homo in a part of Nebraska
where failures never come. On our way
home wo mot a man who said to us:
"Woll, wo must get tho 'boys' together
and go ovor and givo tho newly mnrrlod
couplo a 'boiling,' nnd I rather oncour-
aged it (this timo) for I knew tho bride
and groom would bo safoly housod in a
B. & M. car, noaring Orlouns nbout 0:!50,
tho time set for tho "belling," and didn't
think it would disturb thoin vory much.
