A. C. Tigner, superintendent of
the M. E. Sunday school, this city,

E. J. Potts's paper, the Inde

Tuesday of last week, "independ

It is a five-column paper, neatly

Capt. Wadsworth and his brother-in-law,
Mr. Jossclyn, have open
ed a real estate office on Nebraska
Avenue, in the building occupied by
Godfrey & Randall. Captain is well
known to our local readers, and has
acquired considerable of a reputa

Win. Routson showed us Mon
day a variety of wheat, the name of
which he had forgotten. The head
was obtained troin W. J. Thurston,
who is raising a small amount for
seed. The head before us is nearly
four inches long, and starlinirat the
base running up the head half way
eight additional heads, all well fill
ed with nice plump grains. This
measures oyerau inch wide, half its
length. "We should think that this
variety would produce fifty bushels
to the acre.
The Jodrnal has always dep
recated a local war of business in

dangerous man in a community.
There are certain matters concern

iu this cily to agree in such cases
they should gentlemanly "agree to

A fearful looking black cloud
passed over the city yesterday morn
ing at 5. A 6liff breeze accompanied
the cloud, but in a few minutes the
wind went down and a quiet, busi
ness rain followed, which made yes
terday an exceptionally pleasant day.
If the new Bourbon paper wish
es the public to believe that it was
not "brought here by the U. P."
wouldn't it be well enough for it to
indicate some degree of pleasure,
however slight, in regard to the de

will not be too late next Friday,
though any strong degree of enthu
siasm at that date might not seem

ried out to Pat. Murray's Saturday

one may escape into a cornfield and
disappear, not to be fouud for sev

of frisky calves.
Some citizens of Madison have
for several weeks been berating
Platte county business men who
happened to be in that neighborhood
on business of their own, alleging
that they were working against the
railroad interests of Madison. We
don't believe there has been any
thing of the kind. It will hardly
be claimed now, will if, that Colum
bus men defeated the U. P. scheme
in Pierce county?
The M. E. Sunday School will
hold their annual pic-nic at G. W.
Stevens's lake and timber next Sat
urday. Teams will be provided to
convey the children to the grove,
and prompt attendance on their part
is requested at the church at S o'clock
a. in. An invitation has been ex
tended to the other Sunday schools
of the city to join iu this pic-nic.
Superintendent, teachers and schol
ars anticipate a good time.
On Saturday last David Ander
son left the city with two car loads,
ol hogs for the Rocky mountains.
Mr. A. expects to take in Denver,
Ulackhawk, Idaho, the old Spanish
mines and the Leadville district be
fore he returns. Twenty years ago
he was familiar with the sites and
localities of all these places before
a respectable looking building indi
cated the existence of future brisk
and lively towns and cities.
Tho following paragraph ap
pears in the last Democrat: "Thurs
day afternoon Mr. Gerrard received
a telegram from S. B. Galey attor
ney for the A. & N. Ry.. from Den
ver, stating that the injunction ou
the building of the A. & N. Rail
way, had been set aside by Judge
Miller." And this is all the word
it has to say in regard-to the rail

One day last week Dan. Kavan
augh, Nebraska's Cattle King, and
D. C. Loveland, while traveling in a
wagon on the Reservation, looking
for a location for a couple of cattle
ranches, went to sloop. Dan was
the first to waken, and asked Love
land how long lie had boon asleep.
"About a minute," replied the legis
lator. Dan suggested that it was a
pretty long "minute," as their team
had gone just twelve miles out of
J. O. Shannon of this city has
applied for a patent on a devise to
be attached to the plates connecting
the ends of rails on railroad tracks,
for the purpose of keeping the nuts
to bolts in their place. There have
been two devices patented for this
purpose, but neither of them, we are
lold, have proved eflective. Mr. S's
looks to us as though it would be a
complete success cheap, certain and
"ever-enduring," as Mr. Collin was
wont to say of the competing line.
Elsewhere wo print an adver
tisement of the Teachers' Institute
to be held in Columbus next month.
The school (for such it really is) was
a good one last year, aud profitable,
we believe, to all who participated
in it. The coming institute should
be still better, and we suggest to the
conductor, Supt. Barrett, that,
among the teachers of the county,
there arc a number who could, with
very little time given for arranging
their lectures, addresses or essays,
make their subjects very interesting
to their fellow-teachers.
Miss Sarah Fitzpatrick closed a
term of school in Dist. No. 27, on
Friday last. Parents of the district
say that she has done excellent work
as teacher. After the family-circle,
we regard the public school as the
next institution in importance to the
on-coming generation, and we are
always more than pleased to voice
the public opinion in regard to the
faithtul, conscientious and efficient
teachers, who stand ready, willing,
nay eager and anxious to direct the
tender mind in the way of right
thinking aud correct conduct.
Schuyler has but two news
papers, and yet the editors there are
more outrageously personal than
those of Columbus, where there arc
four. The Democrat of last week
calls the opposition editor "the little
tow-headed printer's rat across the
street," and again "tow-headed,
bandy-shanked, pigeon-toed ."
And yet again a "liar," a "sneak"
and a "coward," and addresses his
opponent personally, beseeching him
to knock a chip off his hat. Is
Schuyler such a bad place? And
iEu't the world big enough for two?

The Americau are fast becoming
a music-cultivated and music-love-ing
people. Music is taught iu the
public school, and in nearly all pri
vate schools.colleges and seminaries.
Every city and town has its miiiic
teachers, and most ci'ies their con
servatories or schools devoted ex
clusively to music. Thus the de
mand for sheet music, music books
and music journals has become
immense. The leading publishing
hone in this country is that ofS.
Brainard's Sons, of Cleveland, Cin
cinnati and Chicago. This firm
commenced business in 1S30, in
Cleveland, and from a small begin
ning ha3 grown to immense pro
portions, now occupying the largest
building in this country de
voted to music publishing. They
publish over fifteen thousand dif
ferent pieces of music and hundreds
of popular music books of all kinds.
They also publish Brainard's Musi
cal World, a monthly magazine
which is well known all over the
country. Iu order to facilitate their
large western trade S. Brainard's
Sons have established a large house
at 158 State Street, Chicago, 111.,
where a complete stock of every
thing iu the line of sheet music and
music books can at all times be
tound. As successors to the old
Chicago firm ot Root & Cady, whose
busiuess aud immense catalogue was
purchased by them aTter the Chicago
fire, they are enabled to oiler in
ducements unsurpassed by any
other publishing house. They will
send their large catalogue of music
and books free to any one on appli
cation. Send for it and address S.

The late action of the City Coun
cil has brought up a question that
has for a long time been a bone of
contention in the city namely the
improvement of the cily parks
Franklort aud Bufi'ilo Frankfort
where the Engine House is, aud
Buffalo, in the neighborhood of Chas.
Speice's residence. The contract for
fencing both these squares has been
let, and they will be fenced and af
terwards otherwise improved unless
there is a change made in some re
spect. We have been in favor of
cutting up Frankfort square, and
selling it tor business lots, applying
the proceeds to the payment of the
city indebtedness, provided this
could legally be done but we have
always understood that these squares
were deeded to the city for the pur
pose of public parks, and that, hav
ing been accepted as such, there is no
legal power to change that purpose.
In short, it is a matter for the courts
to settle, and the legal contest might
as well be entered upon uow, as later,
but only in that calm spirit in which
two intimate acquaintances would
sit down to play a friendly game of

There is scarcely a man in Ne
braska who will read this little item,
but has seen thousands of dollars'
worth of property destroyed by
by prairie fire property, which in
some cases, was the accumulation of
a life-lime of hard work and still
harder privation. And not a year
passes but we hear of more or less
destruction of valuable lives from
the same cause. We are not of the
number that believe that it is possi
ble to prevent all loss by prairie
fires (for the wind sometimes car
ries burning weeds or stalks a long
distance) but very much of the dam
age that occurs may be prevented.
We call attention to this subject now
because we know that a hint often
saves a man from trouble. There
are three kinds of guards the plow
ed, the burned and the green strip.
We name them in the order in which
we find them prevalent.
As to the first, the trouble with
too many is that the plowing is not
wide enough, some relying on a fur
row or two, when at the very least
it should bo a rod in width. The
"plowed" guard should be turned
over, and all weeds destroyed before
Ihe grass dries. Some are already
cutting hay, and the following meth
od may bo useful to them. The
writer has tried it, aud knows
whereof he speaks. Select a spol
in your meadow, the highest and
driest, and convenient for stacking;
mow off the stack-yard, and put the
hay therefrom inlo a slack within;
now cut wide enough around the
"yard" to make a good, sure guard ;
lot this dry and then burn it; make
hay from another strip outside of
the burning, aud cut aud burn a
second guard beyond that. If the
grass springs up again on these
guards, later along in the season
scatter dry hay over them and burn
again, while ihe adjacent grass is
green. This method has several
good points in its favor; it does not
tear up aud disfigure your meadow ;
the burning is done while adjacent
grass is green, and thus there is no
risk to r-in; if properly done, you
feel secure, which is a consideration
worth remembering. Of course this
plan can be applied to the protection
of fields and premises.
The third kind of guard is not
much known to Nebraska, but we
believe would be good for perman
ent guards, as around an entire
farm or premises. The plowed
ships which have heretofore been
used may be seeded down to blue
grass, white clover or some other
grass that will not burn.
From present appearances it would
seem as (hough Ihe fall might be
Very dry ; if so, we shall be sorry to
have to chronicle so many destruct
ive fires as there were in 1877, when
Nebraska lost tens of thousands of
dollars worth of valuable property,
in houses, granaries, barns, stacks of
wheat, hay, &c , but the newspapers
will abound in paragraphs of disas
ter unless more attention i3 paid to
