Ed. Journal: The Douro, Dur
ra or Rice corn of Kansas which has
created such n furore from its ability
to withstand -evere drought, aud.
therefore adapted, to the arid section
of Kansas aud Nebraska, I find,
upon examination, to be an old ac
quaintance, having grown it iu Pen
usyhaniti more than forty years ago,
uuder the name of African Millet or
Guiiien corn, and at that time it was
used in some portions of southern
Europe as a substitute for wheat, a
place which it fills but partially,
though it may help to keep famine
from the door. It belongs to the
same family with sorghum and
broom corn, aud therefore, in order
to keep it pure, will require to be
planted where it will not mix with
these. The name Durra h Arabic,
evidently bowing its eastern origin
aud that it was brought from a coun
try not subject to excess of moisture.
My friend Heinricb wishes some
one to utilize the wild sunflower by
heading them and converting the
seed into oil. Now, I know not
what kind flourish on Shell creek,
but I am very sure that no
wheat header would top such plants
as grow in our section, with any
satisfaction wheu sufficiently dry ;
besides 1 think he is in error in re
gard to the amount of seed or the
quantity of oil to be obtained from
our native variety; the article he
quoted from evidently has reference
to the Russian variety, oue head of
which I kuow from observation will
yield a half pint of seed, or about
GO bushels per acre, which if there
was sufficient inducement might pay
to raise, as it is generally a sine crop.
For the winter mod of fowls a por
tion mixed with other grain is very
beneficial, aud as au oil-producing
plant I should think it would yield
at least double that of flax ; a more
efficient way of utilizing the wild
sunflower iu my opinion would be
to prevent their goiug to seed aud
fertilize the soil by plowing them
uuder, and this can "be done very
effectually with a sulky plow, so that
stalks lott in height cau be buried
completely out of sight, and leave
the surface as cloar of trash as tho'
uone had ever grown.
Tho same authority says he has a
second crop of wool, and thinks
three crops may easily be made in
two years, but what advantage if tho
threo crops net him no more than
two because such proceeding will j
require extra winter care to carry
the flock through the severe weather.
I know that in California this double
system of shearing is followed, but
their winters are milder than ours,
and there i is more particularly for
the purpose of getting rid of tho
scab, but presume this not to be the
o'lject iu his case. Theories are all
well enough iu their way, but ''facts
are stubborn things" and when these
have natural laws to sustain them
thev may bo said to be invincible.

Hon. T. P. Kennard of Lincoln
and J'idge Da pis of Alma spoke at
the Court House Tuesday evening to
a tair audience of our citizens of
both parties, acquitting themselves
vory handsomely. Judge Davis
showed, to the satisfactiou ot Repub
licans at least, the utter absurdity of
the great cry for a change," made
by the Democratic party. Mr. Ken
nard dwelt upon the financial bear
ing of the electiou, striking a vein
that has not been sufficiently worked
by republican speakers, and one
which is simply astonishing, when
it comes to be seen iu the light iu
which Mr. Kennard presents it.

Treasurer Early's very interesting
annual talk to the patrons of his
office. We may be allowed to say,
in regard to. this serial, which will
appear in four issues of the Journal,
that, although it looks rather unin

there are many who will read it with
serious faces and downcast looks.
There is always a way, however,
where there is a will, aud none need

y M. K. Turner, of the Columbus
Journal, has been nominated for
the office of state senator from the
14th district, composed of Platte and
Colfax counties. Mr. Turner is nn
old resident of Nebraska aud one of
tho best men in the state for the
position. The district, politically, is
one of the doubtful ones of the state
but we firmly believe that 3Ir. Tur
ner will reccivo the election. Lin

Spooner at Lincoln be says that the

Mr. Eiutos:: In your last issue
I noticed that the Platte county Re
publican convention is to meet
shortly at Columbus, aud it seems
that Shell creek is well-blessed with
office-seekers on the democratic s'do
for the coming election, especially i
for the office of county commissioner, i
but I have not yet learned of any
republican iu this community Beck
ing that or any other office ; this is
not because wp havo not got any
men who aru capable of filling offices
but for the simple reason that they
are no office seekers ; but at the same
time they are excellent officers.
