An Interesting Letter From H. R. Green. Olnoysville, R. I., Aug. 2, '95. Editor Herald: Sinco leaving Hemingford, I havo traveled over 3,000 miles and havo soon a groat variety of country, but nono that I like so well as Box Butte. In Iowa I noticed that crops wero but littlo better than at homo, hay being very poor. Throughout 111., Ind., N. Y., clear down to old Mass., I hoard tho same com plaint of light crops, all caused by the drouth in June. In the great fruit states of N. H. and Vermont tho cherries all rotfcedj on tho trees. Apples aro aialf crop. Tho prospect for a crop of pears, peaches and grapes is fair. Potato vinos aro dead and potatoes not matured. Farmers aro digging them but it will bo hard to provont them from de caying. It looks odd to a wos tern man to see their one and two acre fields of corn and pota toes. Times aro very dull here but show sitms of improvement: I expect to return about Sept. 1st. Very truly, H. R. Green. At tho present writing there, aro throe "good" republicans looking for tho nomination for high sheriff of Box Butte county. Their respective names aro Col. W, ChattanogaM aunts, Adjutant Wm. Murfroesboro Foskot, and Captain A. Bunkor Hill Mc Laughlin. Each has secured, tho services-a of good coachor and all wo can do is to wait till af tor tho skirmish at tho convention to soo who tho unfortunate rep is; and then perhaps tho other faction of Box Butte republicans will nominate a man, and so it goes. Charley Krosing, a German boy about fifteen years of age, wont in swimming in Bryant's pond last Saturday about noon. Ho did not appear at tho house that day and it was feared that ho was drowned. The pond was dragged aud divers searched uutil Sunday afternoon when tho body was found with tho legs doubled up indicating that tho boy had been taken with cramps and being a'ono in tho water at tho time was unable to save him self or get aid. His folks livo in Box Butte county not far from Dunlap, His own mother is dead and his father ha3 married again. Okadron Journal. Heminqfoud, Nob., August 9, 1895. Editor Herald: I do not wish to enter into a controversy with the editor of the Guido, but his paper of tho 7th inst,, contains an item which is misleading and exaggerated. While tho conversation roforrod to in tho article i partly true, tho writer will havo to omit such phrases as "Like mighty well" and 'Chief" before ho can got down to the facts in the matter. His wan dering is somewhat surprising, as the Journalist has a reputation for truthfulness. Ono would infer from the writing that I would Blur the clerk, I wish to say that such is a grand misrepresentation for I would not do such a thing for any consideration, as 1 believe that Mr. Ncal is without a peer in his offic ial capacity. ), E.
