The Henrys have a considerable
herd of cattle at their ranehe ou the
Loup. About 0,000 Jiead besides
1,300 calves is not a bad reckoning.
Their range is 75 miles in circum
ference. To preserve the Buffalo
jrrasx that i cured on the ground,
they plow two circles at a distance
apart ot half a mile- and less, and
burn belween. This leave; them a
good fire-jinard and plenty of prov
ender for tbftir cattle during the
winter. It is probable that h few
years at farthcnt will seo the end of

The concert, readings, speeches
dialogue ice, givon by the Sunday
School scholars at the M. E. Church
last Wedne-day evening brought
out a full house, as well as filling
considerable space on the outside of
the church. A great amount of mu
sical talent appears to be brought to
gether in the school, and even the
small and young children performed
their parts exceedingly well. "Come
iu" and "Don't Forgcttho Old Folks,"
with the skill shown by Mr. Graves
iu whistling, with organ accompani
ment the "Mocking Bird", was rich
ly worth two admission fees. Par
ties who were present say it was the
best performance ever given in this
city by the Sunday School.
In our opinion the complaint
made by II. T. Spoerry against Snpt.
Barrel!, although proper to be plac
ed on file by the. Coiumis-iouers,
should not have been spread upon
the records, unless it was the inten
tion of the Board to move upon him
for neglect, of official dut, which of
course I hey had no thought of doing.
It ha the appearance of having been
done simply to gratify II. T. Spoerry,
and uothing more. "Wherever II. T.
is known he is regarded 38 a "chronic
grumbler." Doubtless he would
resent such a phrase, ami say that he
was after justice, fcc, and perhaps if
he was U'-s uoisy aud more respect
ful ot hit- fellow-men he would be a
"power" in the land, but business is
one thing and bluster is an other.

Wilson have both said to us thattbe
Board of Equalization heard a com-
plaint thoy had to make in regard to
the unequal assessment of the lands
of Humphrey and Stearns precincts.
Their complaint was (so they say)
that while both precincts contain the
same quantity of land, and while
Humphrey has several miles of rail
road track, besides a depot, never
theless the total land assessment of
Humphrey is leas than that of
Slearns by 20,000, Humphrey being
put down at ?2.50 an acre and
Steams at 43.25. Both these men
say that each and every man of the
Board promised them that the mat
ter should be fairly adjusted, but
that they tailed to do so.

We take this occasion to say to
outside ball players who expect to
play here Urn season that they had
better yet used to swill pitchiug if
they expect to have any show at all

swift delivery, he now ireld the
'curve" very essential iu all good
" prolessiouals," thereby deceiving
the striker. Il, as some one called
him during the game of Friday, a
"moss-back" and 'hay-pitcher," he
can still toss a ball to good effect,
aud with Charley Wake, or the
"living skeleton," as he was jokingly
called on the ground during this
game, to take them "hot" trom the
bat, and the other players in their
respective positions, it will take
more thau an ordinary team to carry
off the laurels. AVe have so much
faith in this club as now organized
that we would be willing to wager
a month's wages (if we were a bet
ting character) that Ihe Columbus
boys can walk away with an) nine
that may .ee tit to vinif here, Omaha
aud Lincoln not excepted.
Below will be found Ihe score ot

return game will he played at David
