Deak Journal: It is now a set
tled fact, that this and the Winncbi
jro Agencies are consolidated, and
Howard White, of the latter, has
been continued Agent. Some
Omahas are dissntisfied with the
change; thai is, they don't care
about being joined to a tribe who,
they sa', arc lazy, and light-fingered.
There is a contrast between the two
tribes. Winnebigocs mostly wear
citizens clothes. The Omahas are
too poor to buy very nice clothes,
aud receive no annuity money or
clothing, whereas the Winncbagoes
do; but the Omahas aro nearly self
supporting, arc living on their farms
in lair frame housce, and are doinr
their own farm work. "What I
know about farming" is truly limit
ed, but their work looks as well as
any I have seen. The land is rolling,
bluffy aud. timbered in places, and
they have uot the chance to exhibit
ckill in making long straight rows
as is charteristic in IMattc Valley
farming, but they do more like
"down Easters." They sow their
wheat by hand, and mark their corn
ground with bobs, and plows. Many
hac American horses but generally
a cross ; yet the ponies are fat and
work well. I recently hired a horse
of an Indian to drive a few miles,
and he made the buggy seem like a
train of cars till I jelled whoa! Was
only troltiug his natural gait. They
arc scattered all over the eastern
part of the Reserve, some have stock,
cows, pigs and chickens (not all
scrubs, some bloods, Durnhams,
Ecrkshircs, Chcsterwhitcs, Buff
Coachins, and Dark Brahma's) and
people crossing the Reserve and
visiting- the Agency, frequently re
mark that it looks like a white set
tlement. They arc instructed in
their work but little. The Agent
goes frequently among them, also
the Blacksmith and Farmer who
show them and advise them about
their work. They have the will,
the determination to work and show
Uncle Sam that they need his sup
port no longer; that they aro capable
of becoming good citizens, entitled
to rights and protection as such.
All they ask of the government now
is clear title to their lands in allot
ment, with Schools a few years,
exempt from taxation a few years,
courts of law, and the agricultural
implements, wagons, &c, that they
are now using. The schools arc now
being conducted successfully. There
are now but day schools and the
one under my charge, has had dur
ing the winter an average al tendance
of 70 and upwards. My assistant,
Miss Lusettc La Fleeche, an Indian
girl, is a successful teacher. She is
highly educated and capable of
leaching in the highest graded
Schools of the state. "Wo hope to
have a boarding or industrial school
established ere long.
The "Big Muddy" is washing off
the banks at a tremendous rate.
The ground, where an employe's
house stood but a week ago, has
remarkable fact, that life, to all out
ward appearance, is a monotonous
succession of scenes aud movements
but all incidental. We wonder
how the interest is kept up. But
we never tire of going to bed at
night., aud we arc very sorry wheu
we tire of getting up in the morn
ing. We never weary, except with
regret, of breakfasting, dining and
supping; and yet these actions arc
repeated incessantly three hundred
aud sixty-live times in the year,
with renewed excitement on every
succeeding occasion. We take ofl'
our clothes once every day, and put
them on once every day. We do
this at nearly the same hour, in
daily succession; and when health
is good the pleasure derived from
so doing is uot marred by the repe
tition of the act; for the ebbing and
the flowing of our bodily sensations
prepare us, without any effort on
our part, for all the vicissitudes of
our existence. When hungry, food
is agreeable ; when wear-, sleep or
rest is a treat ; when warm, cool air
is refreshing; when cold, the pleas
ure derived from a cheerful fire is
delicious. The excitement is kept
up by contrasts; and we purchase
the enjoyment of one feeling by
encouraging the reverse. With
health, and youth, and prosperity
we should never be weary. It is
age and weakness, and poverty that
prepare us for death; and even that
comes easy upon most men, at last,
like a sleep, and the heaviness of the
heart gives even the last sleep a

caved in, and the water is coming
toward the mill (which is being
torn down and hauled away) at a
rapid rate. All other Agency build
ings are clear of danger over two
miles inland. A year or so ago the
right bauk stood about where the
left bank now forms Iowa's boun
dary. But to Omahas again. They treat
their squaws as wives. They keep
them at home and their duties aro
similar to those of while women,
but when they go abroad, they arc
escorted by their husbauds in bug
gies, aud wagons. What a contrast
to that of the Tawnec squaws who
aro kept and used as beasts of
burden. I have visited them at
their houses. True they do not ap
pear as neat, clean, and refined as
some white people's houses, and
certainly no worse than some. We
do not expect to convert an Indian
race into a state of perfect civiliza
tion in a day or a year. It is the
work of years, generations or even
centuries. But this tribe is making
rapid progrees towards it now.
They appear to be honest. Their
"trader gave them credit last year to
thousands of dollars, which "he ex
pects them to pay him this year out
of their crops. They do not beg.
Wo have the first one to ask us for
anything to cat. They do uot stael,
some exceptions to tho latter, but
where" a religion is blended with
horse stealiug, we cau't expect much
different. They do not swear in ou r
lauguage or their own that I know
of. They arc tired of being tied to
the apron strings of the government,
as wards, babies, or paupers. They
ask to be self-supporting and as soon
as they kuow their land is theirs
unquestionably will make improve
ment such as building houses, barns
and granaries, setting out trees, &c.
&c, which they have done in a
measure already. But the fear of
being cheated out of their lands as
their friends the Poncas were, causes
them to have but little faith in the
power that holds over them. They
desiro to become citizens and share
equal rights with all as such.

The Monotony or Life.
The general character of life is
that of monolouy. Whether we
regard the life of man, or the life of
bcftsls wo nro 6lruck, by the same
I have had the care of horses for
the past twenty-one ycar6, and never
had one sick in all that time, though
1 have had two die of old age,
one at twenty-eight. There is no
great secret in keeping a horse
60und and well; and 6ince the
advent of the horse-lamer and lec
turer it is plainly to be seen that
the number of stifled, spavined,
ringboned and diseased horses is
growing lcs, but there is still room
for great improvement. Rnmn
farmers make a irreat mistake in
feeding too much grain, keeping in
close, warm stables, blanketing, etc.
A horse so pampered is apt to get
6ick, and when brought out is easily
heated, catches cold ; or else is apt to
be above his business wilh his heels
higher than head, which is neither
pleasant nor profitable, as a man can
keep his team feeding up all the
coarse grain a common farmer can
raise. Tho requirements of nature
are very simple and very easily sup
plied, and consist chiefly in proper
feed, air and exercise, and regulari
ty and moderation in feeding aud
handling, the two chief causes of
trouble being bad management in
tho stable and hard driving aud care
lessness on the road.
A horso should have a stable
entirely above ground, well lighted
and well ventilated. It is next in
importance that he bo fed at certain
regular hours; also that he be not
fed too much at once, as he should
ciean out the manger every time,
especially if not used, and be ready
to grab at the next mess; it will do
no harm if the bunk is empty two
or three hours. Horses fed in this
way will really cat more and do
better than if the manger is constant
ly crammed with that which has
been mussed over; besides, the horse
is not kept stuffed all the time and
his wind is better. Again, it makes
a great difference what a horse is fed.
Hay and oats alone will soon rum
some horses, and hay should not be
fed steadily to any horse. A safe
system of feeding in winter is as'fol
lows: Hay in the morninc nml
good bright cornstalk twice a day,
with a few ears of corn morning and
night if not working, otherwise corn
three times a day, the cornstalks
being just loosening enough to coun
teract the effects of the hay keep the
animal healthy. Oat straw may bo
used in place of the cornstalks, or
together: and then oats may be fed
in place of the corn. If a horse is
not being used he should not stand
in the stable two days in succession,
but on mild days should be let out
in the yard for exercise a few hours,
or be hitched up and driven.
When the horse comes to be
worked in the spring, tho feed
should be changed entirely ; but in
changing feed always do it gradual
ly, and no harm will ensue. When
working, the feed should consist of
hay, wetted and mixed with meal
made of corn and oats in equal parts
ground together; and it isastonish
iug how little feed of this kind will
keep a horse good at hard labor ; it
gauutshim, as he should be; ho is
uot stuffed with hay, his wind or
breathing power, is better, and he
does not need to drink so much
water. As to watering, I have said
nothing, as the rules for that are so
simple and so generally understood
that any man who will founder a
horse ought to be fined and impris
oned lor cruelty to animals. In re
gard to the rearing and raisiug of
horses, I will say but little, being
not an expert, though I must have
some useful knowledge, and will
simply add : In the management of
a horse, bring into play all your skill
and ingenuity taking advantage of
your knowledge of the nature and
disposition of the particular one with
which you are dealing, which
knowledge you will obtain byobser
vation (no two requiring the same
treatment,) and thus avoid the
necessity of ruling by brute force.

Editok Joukxal : It is cold, dry,
and most of the time very windy in
this part of Nebraska. Items of
news, too, I have no time at present
to gather up; but as necessity com
pels me to be awake most of the
night, I will, with your permission,
redeem the promise made in my
last scribble to your excellent paper
aud report farther on the varieties
of fruit permanently pauted for
home enjoyment. We have nothing
to add as to the vurieties of fruit
mentioned iu our last, as the ad
vancement in the season has fully
provcu me correctness ot our re
marks. The grapes that we covered
last fall (two and three years plant
ed) have been taken from their
winter quarters and for the benefit
of your readers we will name the
varieties, and the reason we do it is
to correct somewhat the practice of
planting nothing but Concord. As
all of the varieties have come thro'
the winter in good condition, aud
also each winter sinco planted, we
thiuk that we can begin to speak
with some confidence as regards
our success with the following va
rieties. Of fourteen Clintons, we
covered two ; they are all live years
planted and cover a live-feet
trellis. Concord three years plant
ed; also Franklin, Northern Musca
dine, Catawba, Rogers No. 41, 9 and
4, Israel la, Martha and Delaware.

but one year, but wo feel pretty
confident of gathering this coming
fall from our three rows of the
above named grapes at least nine
hundred pounds. The excessive
dryness of the fall and winter will
not allow us to enjoy many raspber
ries or currants. The same cause
with its continuance to the present
time, will give us but a partial crop
of strawberries. Gooseberries prom
ise a full crop, aud the Amelanchier
Alpina will be loaded with fruit.
Pears, live varieties, are in nice
condition; they are standards and
three yea rs planted. Transcndent,
large, yellow, and Marengo crabs,
four years planted, aro covered with
blossoms, and so -far wo have never
seen in our orchard on pear, crab, or
apple, any blight or other disease,

and the various catterpillars. Un
