While cleaning up the other day
a the U. P. Elevator in this city, the
vorkmen came upon a good sized
byttle filled with strychnine, "con
taring enough of the poison to kill
all the people in Columbus. It had
poised through tho elevators and the
clcuer and was caught by the sieves,
and strange to say was still corked
andunbroken. Of course thero are
varbus very natural ways of ac
counting for its presence In the
clevdor, such as, that it might havo
boenplaced on a projection in some
farmtr's granary and fallen una

have rallon out of a pocket into a

Thetfre set out by somebody
unknown, near the Stolce brick yard
came verj close to proving a disas

considerable portion of hay iu tho
valley wa6 destroyed, but nothing
more serious happened. It may be
set down as a good rule of conduct
that no ram, woman or child has
sense enough to set out a prairie
fire, except tvheu, the fire will inevi
tably sweep by them anyhow, and
that is their only hope of protection.
Don't take the risk. It is too great.
It would- seem that so long as no
great damage results, the law will
not be enforced, but some of these
days it may happen that a prairie
fire, sot out even in a calm time,will
be caught by a sudden rise of the
wind and will carry destruction and
devastation in its path, until men
will become so enraged that they
will show no mercy to the gnilty.
Let every one, before striking a
match to touch to the grass, consider
the possible consequences of the act.

Don't set out prairie fires.
Wo have a copy of amendments
to the road law as passed by tho
legislature of '70, which those inter
ested can examine. Soc. 75, which
contains a good provision, was gen
erally, if not universally unheeded
last fall, and this probably happened
because the legislature failed to
provide for the publication of such
portions of their enactments as were
of universal interest. How can the
law be reasonably enforced when it
is not known what the law i?, and
how else can it be quicker, more
effectually and more cheaply made
known to the public than through
the newspapers of the State? The
publication of this one provision
alone, at a nominal cost to the State,
might have saved tens of thousands
of dollars worth of property within
the limits of the State. There is no
reason why all laws of very general
interest should not be published,
and we could hope that the next
legislature will not stand in its own
and the public's light to the extent
the last one did. Having diverged
thus much, wo quote as follows:
"It shall be tho duty of each over
seer of roads during" the month of
AuguRt or September, in each year,
to make provision for the preven
tion and spread of prairie tires in
his district, by causing the grass
along the line of the public roads, at
least two rods in width on each side
of said roads, where practicable to
be mown. Such grass shall be per
mitted to lie where it is cut, and
shall not be raked or gathered to
gether, but shall, at a suitable time,
when dry, bo burnt."

Messrs. Speice & North, real es
tate agents of this city, havo .done
an excellent thing in preparing for
sale a splendid map of the county
showing the location of all tho
towns, farms, &c. It may be h'
down .ia; nuct, in all
important particulars. W. L.
Wright of Omaha is the draughts
man, and the lithographers, August
Gass & Co. of St. Louis. The work
on the map is done in tho
best of style, and one of these, hand
somely mounted, should adorn the
walls of every farm-house and office
iu the county. We find it very val
uable for reference, and have had
ours but a few days. We hope that
while those gentlemen will feel as
sured that they have done a public
good, they will have purchasers
enough for their very handsome
map to justify them in still further
ventures in this line. Sold by

The Rev. Copelaud preached at
Omaha tho other day what might be
classified as a sensational sermon,
taking for the foundation of his
discourse, Mother Shipton's proph
ecy, closing
''And the world to an end shall come
In eighteen hundred and eighty-one."
All the other prophecies foretold in
the celebrated Hues, having been
literally fulfilled, why not this, is
the probable inference the sensation
al preacher wished his hearers to
draw. Without affirming belief or
disbelief in the so-called prophecy
he referred, among other things, to
the measured space in the great
pyramid of Egypt answering to the
Christian era 1881, and to Prof.
Gould's announcement that if the
immense comet, which is now trav
eling eastward, continues iu its pres
ent course and inclination, which he
can see nothing to prevent, it will
collido with the earth in the course
of a year.
That Ventilation.
Editou Joun.vAL : Iu last Week's
Issue you said "A gentleman tells us
that at the meeting in the M. E.
Church last Sunday evening there
was uot a breath of ventilation."
Thore were two windows lot down
from the top all the time, and two
others part of the time, during the
services, aud yet the gentleman says
thero was not a breath of ventila
tion. He must remember that with
an audience of 150 persons (instead
of 100 as he has it) it would be quite
difficult to please all, for while some
complained of being too warm, oth
ers were too cold, and taking all
the circumstances together, the ven
tilation perhaps could not have been
bettered much, and certainly the fa
cilities for ventilation cannot be
surpassed by any other church in
the city.
