THE TOWN OF 1MOOK '
In Red Willow County , RfeTbraska , has been surveyed , and
lots in the market , for just one year and has now a population
of 1000 people. This point has been designated by the C. , B.
& Q. as the DIVISION STATION between the MISSOURI
EIVER & DENVEE , where the principal shops , a 15 stall
round house and other R. R. facilities have been located on
the Denver Line. A complete system of water works costing
$25,000 is just being completed giving all the facilities for
comfort posessed of old cities. Lots will range in price from
$150 to $500 for business lots , and . § 50 to $200 for residence
lots. The .history of points like McCook show an increase
of more than three hundred per cent , in from one to five years ,
and this town promises to be an exceptional chance for invest
ments. For further particulars apply to R. O. PHILLIPS ,
Or W. F. WALLACE , Secretary , Lincoln , Neb.

Washington , V. C. , April 14 , ' 84.
I have been examining the
history of past Congresses , so
far as the number of bills in
troduced is concerned , and I
find that the most prolific ses
sion anterior to the "war yield
ed just about one-tenth of the
number of bills already intro
duced in the House , which is
a little rising of 7,000. Though
the session of the House which
began in 1859 , in December ,
did not transact any business ,
owing to the failure to elect a
Speaker , until the following
February , the sequel shows
that the members kept them
selves busy in preparing bills
for introduction , for the record
exhibits more of them than
were eve ? presented in any two
Congresses preceding. Of the
more than 7,000 bills now in
the House files of this session ,
avast majority are private bills
calling for pensions , and for
the relief of everybody who is
impecuniously inclined ; and
it is these that have the effect
of postponing until the very
last end of the ses-sion the great
and important measures in
which the public generally is
most'vitally 'concerned. Each
of these private bills has its
friends and promoters , until
action is taken upon them by
the committee having it in
charge , that committee has no
respite from its labors , no op
portunity to consider import
ant public measures , no exemp
tion from the importunities of
the claimants. The antidote
for this misehievous business ,
which turns Congress into a
general collecting agency , is to
be found in the AVI ping out of
all special legislation and the
establishment of some tribuii-
al like the Court of Claims to
take care of these trivial mat
ters , Avhose consideration by
Congress costs the country ten
fold more than their aggregate
amount in the neglect of the
greater interests of the people.
Contrary to all prescribed
notions of the ability of the
American people to write let
ters , the Post Office authorities
are compelled to admit that
the revenue from the tAvo cent
letter postage for the first year ,
ending October 31st , will equal
if not exceed that of any pre
ceding year under the three-
cent system. It this be so , and
there is scarcely a doubt that
the prospective report will
demonstrate it , there is good
ground for the assumption
that a still further reduction
of postage on letters to one
cent , without regard to weight ,
would result in an increased
correspondence that would
yield a still handsomer reve
nue. Meantime Congress
should make some uniform
law regulating the rates of ,
postage on newspapers and
printed matter that somebody
besides the Postoffice officials
and aPhiladelphia lawyer call
comprehend. For instance , one
of the laws in force .to-day *
prescribes that the rate of postage -
age on a newspaper exceeding
1,950 square inches in size , shall
be two cents ! The absurdity
of employing a tape measure [ ,
to ascertain the dimensions of I
the newspaper seeking to go '
through the mail , is no greater * }
than that of subjecting it to
the scales to ascertain if it
weighs 1 ounce or 2 ounces.
After all it may not be a bad j (
idea to secure uniformity in |
the laAv pertaining to marriage ti
and divorce throughout the . ,
United States. The proliibi- 'iC *
tions of marriage on account .
of consanguinity and other ' , (
causes , are as diverse in the } '
several States as are the laws f J
which prescribe the causes for . * ? ,
which divorces may be grant- \ \
ed. A movement to secure this
uniformity in the law has already -
ready been inaugurated.

A MAN named Reilley recently shot .
and killed a girl , a friend of his , after
repeatedly , against her protest , snap * , j
ping the pistol at her which he "didn't
know was loaded. " The judge in
structed the jury that it was man
slaughter and the sentence must be
from one to fifteen years imprison
ment. It is a good precedent. It
will possibly serve as a reminder to
brainless ycung men that they ought
to go to the penitentiary on general
principles whether their gun is loaded - ' *
ed or not , if they point and snap it at
a girl or anybody else ,
