another elevator erected, anil several
other buildings; also tevoral addi

A store is now beingbuilt which

A new lumber yard is also to be

of the town.
All crops around here that were
put in in season and well cared for,
look extremely well, except wheat;
that is light, and some pieces which
were injured by the hail storm in
June will not bo harvested. Oats
yield uncommonly well. Y.

LUlIe IIojk and Tobacco.
Many parents do not know of half
the bad habits that their little boys
are forming. One of the most com
mon is that of using tobacco. And,
as "men arc made of little boys," and
as bad habits that are formed in
early life stick to them with iron
grasp, how important that parents
should look sharply after their do
ings I Many little boys chew tobac
co uuknown to their parents, until a
habit is formed which is not easy to
break. Some of them think it U
smart and manly to smoke and
chew because their father does ! A
few days ago, when I was in a store,
a little boy, about seven years old,
stepped up to the opposite counter,
took a pipe from his pocket, filled it
with the free tobacco, lit it with a
match and began smoking. I stepp
ed over to him and laid my hand
gently on his shoulder; he turned
around quickly. Said I, "dear little
boy, don't use that poisonous, dirty
etutr. You will become a healthier
and better man without it." He
smothered the fire out, hung down
his head, but made no reply. 2?o
doubt his parents would not allow
him to use tobacco, for they are in
telligent people and know that all
physicians assert the use of it is ex
tremely injurious to the young.

Gen. "Weaver, in the few speeches
he has made in this state, has not
Ecrupled to pull the wool over the
eyes of his hearers. Starting out
with the assumption that he is going
to toll "the truth, the whole truth
and nothing but the truth," he con
stantly wanders far from the path
of veracity. The same old thread
baro arguments which have been
heard 6iuce the greenback party had
an existence are reiterated for the
gudgeons to swallow as sound finan
cial doctrines. While upbraiding
the republican party for alleged
short-comings in the management
of the country's finances, he neglects
to tell the people that under its ad
ministration we have the best money-system
the government has 6ccn
since the beginning. Discoursing
voluminously about the enormity
of the public debt, he doesn't stop to
explain why we have it on our
hands or to recognize the rapidity
with which under wise republican
measures it is beiug wiped out, nor
yet to consider the low rato of in
terest we are paying on that which
remains. He has no word of en
couragement for the good work that
Secretary "Windom is doing toward
relieving the country of burdens
which would be increased were the
doctrines of grcenbackism to hold
sway. His remarks partake more
of the fault-finding character, with
no well defined idea of what could
be substituted for the present sys
tem for the better interests of the
country. National banks and cor
porations generally, of course come
in for a largo share of "Weaver's dis
respect. According to him it must
be that they aro "the grinding mon
opolies" of which we have heard so
much in Nebraska before he came
among us, yet under which this state
is enjoyiug an era of prosperity
never before witnessed in its his
tory. Scattered over the plains of
Nebraska from oue end to the other
are thousands of well-to-do and con
tented farmers who are perfectly
satisfied with the "grinding" process
which they have gone through at
the hands of these "great corpora
tions," and "Weaver might man
ufacture his world-fabric from now
till doom's day without convincing
them that they have suffered greatly.
A few may accept as gospel truth all
that the greenback mogul utters,but
the bulk of Nebraska's intelligent
citizens know that the country is
doing well enough under republican
rule, and propose to take good care
that the well-euongh policy shall be
let alone. Omaha Republican.
A little time and labor will make
the grounds about the house look
tidy, neat and inviting. There is no
use in having tho yards all covered
with sticks, chips and last year's bur
dock stocks; to stick their hateful
burs into clothes and stockings. A
garden rake, and a wheelbarrow,
with a pair of strong hands, will
cleanup all the refuse stun", and if
there are dry leaves drifting around
so much the better, it will all make
a good absorbent for, the manure
shed or piggery. No matter if the
bouse is old, or brown, or moss
grown with age, if it is cleaned up
neatly, it will look as if it were com
fortable aud give a favorable im
pression of theinbabitant8, and a
few flower roots set out aud trim
med up nicely, will make the home
liest place look pleasant. A few
vines, running up tho sides of the
houeb so as to shade the windows
aud doors arc much of an orna
ment to an old house, as they are to
a fine mansion. A pretty porch can
be made over the door, by setting
long poles each side of the steps and
passing strings over the top back
ward and forward. If hop vines
can be obtained set out some roots
cloe by the poles and train the
vines up the poles and string across
the top. If you cannot get hop
vines, plant beans, morning glories,
or sweet peas; aud train them to
run up, and you will have something
that will give pleasure all the long
Boys will enjoy helping if you
only show them bow to do it, and
it will be a life-long pleasure to them
to know how to make things look
Do not think it will take too much
time, for what is time for, only to
make one happy and good. Children
can be taught early iu life to make
themselves useful, and there is no
child but that likes to 6ee a pleasant
home, and if they know how to do
it, will take hold and help make it
"We all of us form an idea of a
person's character when we pass his
dwelling. If we see the yards all in'
a litter, and pigs, calves and chick
enR hopping over logs and chips;
we are immediately impressed with
the belief that shiftless people live
there. A row of sunflowers, or a
clump of hollyhocks are an improve
ment to any place; aud look far
better than rank pig weeds, or may
weed, growiug everywhere. There
is no excuse for the surroundings
of a farm house to be filthy
aud cluttered up with everything;
only just sheer laziness, and don'l
careitiveness. I guess that is a new
word, but it is as expressive a
one aR I know. Cor. Rural JVeiP
The Supreme Ileneli.
"We have received a copy of the
"Wahoo Independent containing a
marked article on the candidacy of
Mr. M. II. Reese for the Supreme
Uench. The article in its closing
words assures us that Mr. Reese
knows nothing about this use of his
name iu this connection, that he is
innocent as the unborn babe of any
aspirations in the direction men
tioned and that there is a strong
probability of his being intensely
angry should he discover what his
friends arc doing. We believe ev
er word of it. Mr. Reese is in the
hands of his friends, in a happy
state of political unconsciousness,
utterly oblivious to all that is tak
ing place around him. A great
body of ardent friends who have no
other occupation are urging his can
didacy, aud the poor victim never
dreams of the great political sur
prise party which awaits him. An
instance of this kind is really re
freshing. Mr. Reese, however, is
an able lawyer and would make an
excellent member of the Supreme
Court. "Was it not that ho is urged
to succeed the ablest member of that
body, a man in whom the people
have-the most implicit confidence,
his caudidacy would undoubtedly
receive the support of this district.

Don'i Iturn Hie Grass.
Don't burn the prairie grass this
fall ; make it a special business of
each one of you to prevent any
burning; as often as you burn the
grass you may expect to have dry
summers and hot winds, for the
simple reason that there is nothing
left to furnish carbonic acid or re
tain moisture. Without some ex
traneous substance the surface of
the land dries up and becomes hard
and dry forming a crust, preventing
the escape of the moisture that may
be plentiful a few inches below the
surface, and as "like produces like,"
or as moisture draws moisture,
without the moisture escaping from
the ground in the form of vapor can
3'ou expect rain? To demonstrate
this theory suppose you burn ofi a
small spot and observe for your
selves the difference in regard to
dryness aud moisture of the two
conditions. In this country where
the covering and decaying matter
consists of nothing but grass, it is
burning up your profits, your pros
pects, your chances for a crop every,
time you burn 'the grass, lot this
heavy growth of grass lie upon the
ground and decay next spring and
you will receive plenty of rain to
grow your crops as you have had
this season. Plum Creek Press.
An excellent suggestion is made
in the Columbus Jourkal concern
ing the importance of drilling or
boring for coal. In a number of
places they are .now boring for a
flowing water supply. Why not,
while the apparatus is on the ground,
make a test to find coal? It is be
lieved that coal can be found in Ne
braska, and therefore the trial should
be made. This is a matter that con
cerns the public and counties could
well afford to lay out a little money
in this way. The crying need of
Nebraska is cheap fuel. Let the
effort be made and there is no ques
tion but that the experiment will
result favorably. Lincoln Globe.

As the Shenandoah Valley fast
express entered the mile cut, imme
diately north of our town, on Tues
day last, the engineer was horror
stricken to sec what he supposed to
be the end of the rail just ahead of
his rushiug locomotive, sliding rap
idly away from him. His first tho't
was a broken rail caught by the
pilot, aud he expected an instantan
eous shock. Wondermeut usurped
the place of fear when a second
glance revealed a five-foot black
snake, of the specie known as
" runners," gliding rapidly away
from him on top of the rail. In the
excitement of the moment his hand
sought the throttle, he threw it wide
open, and the train bounded for
ward under the impulse; but the
snake maintained its lead, although
tho traiu was runuing at fully fifty
miles an hour, and when the end of
the cut was reached, and an oppor
tunity was afforded to escape, it
left the rail, ran out into an open
space, coiled itself up, threw its
head into an attitude of defianco and
died right there. An examination
proved that the intense heat of the
rail had burned it to death.
A Funny Old Story.
Tom Marshal was engaged in the
trial of a case in the interior of Ken
tucky, when a decision of the judge
struck him as so bad that he rose
and said :
"There never was such a ruling as
that since Pontius Pilate presided
on the trial of Christ."
"Mr. Clerk," responded the judsrc,
"fine Mr. Marshal $10 for contempt
"I confess, your Honor," contin
ued Tom, "that what I said was a
little hard on Pontius Pilato, but it
is the first time in the history of
Kentucky jurisprudence that to
speak disrespectfully of Pontius
Pilate is held to be contempt of

a continuous contempt," said the
"Well, judge," Tom added, "as

Church Howe tells tho following
good story to illustrate the vigilance
of Nebraska railroad managers:
When the newspapers reported that
W. W. Peet, private secretary to
general manager Touzalin, of the 1$.
& M., had been appointed mission
ary to Turkey by the American
missionary society, T. L. Kimball,
assistant general mauager Union
Pacific, telephoned J. M. Thurston,
one of the attorneys of the road, to
report at headquarters immediately.
Upon his arrival Kimball told him
to pack his grip-sack and sail by the
next steamer for Turkey, remarking
that he would be darned if the B. &
M. should beat the Union Pacific on
the right of way across that country ;
that Touzalin could not play any of
his missionary taffy on him. Thurs
ton is supposed to be treating with
the Sultan at the present time, with"
good prospects of success. Calvert
An Far un lie Knew
A stranger from the east was hav
ing his boots blacked at the post
office when an alarm of fire was
turned in. As he saw the steamer
rush out he inquired of tho 'shiner5
at his feet :
Bub, what sort of water system
have you got in this city?'
The boy spit on his brush, looked
up and down the street, and finally
'Well, as far as I know anything
about it, they all take water after
The reply seemed to be thorough
ly satisfactory to the stranger. De

The chaplain who opened the
Springfield, III., House of represen
tatives with prayer, not long since
made a very important innovation
upon the usual method of perform
ing that ceremony. He begged that
the "Omnipotent would give the
members more wisdom and greater
promptitude." This was very good,
but it was tame compared to that
portion of a prayer offered iu the
Pennsylvania House one morning,
when the clergyman raised his voice
and said : "O Lord, give these law
makers more brains! more brains!!
more brains "! ! " As ho uttered this
pious petition the third time, the
word "amen" was heard at tho re-
porters' table. The Bangor, Me.,
Whig and Courier reports an inci
dent of a similar character. The
Senate of that State was in a dead
lock, and tho preacher who opened
with prayer used the following
appropriate language : "O Lord,
have compassion on our bewildered
Representatives and Senators. They
havo been sitting and sitting and
sitting and have hatched nothing.
O Lord, let them ariso from their
uest and go home, and all the praise
shall be Thine."
In every case yet recorded in this
State whore a county treasurer has
proved a defaulter, it has been clear
ly shown that had the commission
ers done their whole duty under the
law aud made a thorough examina
tion of the treasurer's affairs, that
but little of the loss would have
occurred. It is largely duo to the
loose system of examination into
theso matte i-8 by the commissioners,
that the custodian of a county's
funds is led to employing tho money
in personal affairs aud business
speculations. It offers him almost
absolute immunity from discovery
during his term of office and as in
many cases one term succeeds an
other it involves four years of this
kind of practice. No treasurer who
is honest and who is treating his
office as tho law contemplates it
should be treated, will object to the
closest scrutiny of his accounts or to
the showing up of every dollar be
longing to the county and in his
custody. Ou the contrary, the treas
urer who is pursuing a course that
will stand daylight would prefer
that the true status of the county's
finances be known iu every particu
lar or as the law requires. Schuy
The Lazy Man.
He spoils your work ; disappoints
your expectations; exhausts your
patience ; eats up your substance ;
abuses your confidence, and hangs a
dead weight upon all your plans;
and the very best thing an honest
man can do with a lazy mau is to
get rid of him. Solomon says:
"Bray a fool with a postal, in a
mortar with wher.t yet will not his
folly depart from him." He does
not mention what kind of a fool he
meant ; but as he speaks of a fool by
pre-eminence, we take it for granted
he meant a lazy mau ; and we are tho
more inclined to the opinion, from
another expression of his experience
namely, "As vinegar to tho teeth,
and smoke to the eyes, so is the
sluggard to them that Bend them."
A pretty fair indication of the fer

on it this year stands ton feet high,
