TIIK STATU FAIR.
Nome of llicAcw I'ejiturc and
Geu. J. C. McBridc, secretary of
the board of agriculture, returned
yesterday from Omaha, where he
had been in attendance at the meet
ing of the board of managers. This
morning ho gave the Olobe consid
erable information concerning the
coming fair and some of its leading
attractions. The fair next month
will Biirpass in many features any
other that have heretofore been held.
The great attraction, the central
figure of observation, will be graud
electric light. Gen. McBride, dur
ing hie recent visit to the east, made
a contract with the Brush Electric
Light company, of Cleveland, to
light the buildings and grounds.
The exhibition will be open at night
the 6ame as during the day. In fact,
it is claimed that the buildings will
be ligher than in daytime. Each
lamp has a luminous power equal to
2,000 caudles. The chariot races
will be run at night by these lights.
The audience in the amphitheatre
will be able to distinguish the hors
es and the colors worn by the driv
ers. In this connection we will
mention that the same persons, a
man and a woman, who appeared
hero in Coup's circus, will compete
in the chariot races at the fair. They
will drive teamB of four horses
abreast, and have agreed to make
the run of a half-mile around the
track in one minute. These races
will occur on Friday and Saturday,
the last two days.
Another specialty of the county
fair will bo tho balloon ascension.
Parties from Mt. Ayr, Iowa, have
secured the contract. An ascension
will be made every evening, and
special ascensions will be made two
days during the week.
The fish exhibits will be some
thing new at our fairs. The state
commission will have on exhibition
in aquariums the different species
of game fish now breeding in Ne
braska waters. This will give our
people who are interested in fish
culture a chance to see what is being
done in that direction. There will
also be exhibited various kinds of
fish from other states. Altogether,
this exhibition will present a sight
at once attractive and interesting:.
Arrangements have been made to
have on exhibition an apiary. It
will be in an enclosure partly of
wire and partly of nettiug. This
will allow the bees to go and come
from the hives, and tho interested
public may watch them at work,
improving the shiuing hours.
From Jefler6on county thero will
be an exhibition of silk worms and
cocoons. This will show the pro
cess of spinning tho cocoons. These
are exhibited by a colony of Men
onites, who have for some time
been engaged in silk-worm raising.
If the matter of transportation can
be arranged, sixteen cars of fine
stock will come from Wisconsin.
ThiB lot includes 6hort-horn and
Jersey cattle, Clydesdale horses,
trotting horses and hogs. ThiB stock
will be on exhibition at the Minne
sota state fair, at Minneapolis, the
week previous to our fair.
Tho celebrated Twenty-third In
fantry band will furnish music.
This organization is west, and needs
no commendation at our hands. It
is sufficient to say that this may be
called an attractive feature.
It will be seen that these features
alone will bring a large number of
people to the fair. The people of
Omaha are doing all they can to
make it a success. We wish also to
commend the efforts of the press of
that city in behalf of the fair. The
Republican, especially, is making a
grand effort in its behalf. With all
the prospects, tho people of Nebras
ka may feel that the coming state
fair will be a grand enccoss. Lin
How It Pays.
The Buccess of the dairying inter
ests in any community depends upon
the mauner in which tho farmers in
general of that district conduct the
business. It is true that a few farm
ers may take hold of it "and make
large profits, but where we find the
general farmer carrying on the busi
ness, there it is that we also find
geueral prosperity, indicated by the
well improved farms, good houses,
good barns, and the best of live
stock. In such communities these
are not tho exception, but tho rule.
It is a noticeable and striking fea
ture that in many of the poorest
agricultural counties of our neigh
boring Btate, Iowa, there is more
wealth than in those which boast of
better soil for corn and grain. The
secret of their success lies in the
fact that they are engaged in dairy
ing. Now that wo have our mag
nificent creamery under way, it
becomes necessary that an interest
in the matter 6hould be created
among the farmers in order that it
may prove of the greatest ultimate
benefit to the county. Snrely none
can doubt that there is a large profit
accruing from the enterprise after
reading a few such practical results
as the following, that are but sam
ples of what has been achieved by
hundreds of Iowa farmers, and
which may be accomplished equally
as well by Nebraska dairymen :
George Acres, of Manchester, re
ceived for the milk of IS cow6 for
11 months of 1SS0, $1,022.5S, or an
bverage of $57.36.
Wxa. Mean, of same town, receiv
ed $S32.73, averago ?53.17 for the
year, for 10 cows.
Sly Brothers got for milk from 20
cows, for the month ol October,
.$143 53, or $7.17 per cow.
Henry Brown, from G cows for
same mouth got $40.78 or $G.7D.
E. Rolf, of Strawberry Poiut,made
from 5 native cows, in 1SS0, butter
which sold for $274, or $54.80 per
cow with the calves and sour milk
George Blackberry, of Ward's
Corners, milked 40 cows and raised
44 calves, made $2,140 out of butter
and pork, or $53.50 per cow, be
I. M. Lee, of Mahaska county,who
had been a stock raiser, his second
year of dairying netted $55.5G, per
head, for his cows.
Wm. Campbell, with 50 cows on a
quarter section, netted, in 1SS0,
$2,000. lie had been a stock raiser
previously, and now finds dairying
to pay more than double the profit.
He reports that thero were shipp
ed from the small station at Man
chester, 104,293 pounds of butter
during the month of January. The
butter of Iowa is shipped each week.
The Odd Itloiuents.
In almost every life there are mo
ments of waiting, when there is
nothing particular to be done. In
some caees these may bo properly
improved by rest, so that our work,
when it comes, may be better done.
In many instances, however, these
odd moments may be best improved
by having something to do a book
to read or some light labor to per
form. It is surprising how much may be
done by using a few moments at a
time. Of course, they canuot prop
erly be used for all purposes, since
there are some duties which require
continued application for a long
time. There are, however, many
kinds of light labor and many sub
jects of study which may be follow
ed quite successfully by taking only
a few moments at a time.
It is said Elihu Burritt, who was
known for many years as "tho learn
ed blacksmith," was in tho habit,
when an apprentice-boy, of having
a grammar of English or some other
language fastened before him on the
chimney of the forge, so that while
ho was blowing the bellows he
could get au occasional glimpse of
Ben Johnson, a celebrated poot,
who lived over two hundred years
ago, was in early life a bricklayer.
It is said that he always carried a
book in his pocket, and, while wait
ing for the laborer to bring him
mortar or brick, he improved the
odd moments in studying his book.
Let our young friends try tho ex
periment, and they will be surprised
to sec how much can bo done by
rightly using a few moments at a
time. You need not take time from
sleep to do this. Have a time for
everything, and what you do, do
thoroughly, whether it bo sleeping,
eating, working or playing; for all
tlicso are, in their respective places,
right. S. S. Classmate.
Topics of the Time.
We never have been able to un
derstand why railroad companies
should chargo so much more for
carrying a man from Omaha to Chi

charge for shipping a steer or a

The man wants to travel about
twice as fast, for one reason. Spee'd
is money. The man wantB a cush
ioned seat to sit on and one to put
his feet on, a rack for his satchel, a
glass window to look through, a
few extra seats to play seven-up on,
an extra car to smoke in, a special
car for his baggage, a man to see
that ho pays his fare, or kick him off
if he don't, and so many other things
that it makes it more expensive. If
a barrel of flour gets broke up,
about six dollars will pay the dam

heirs wouldn't look at a check for
less than $5,000. Flour and Fleers
always pay their fare, and never

Thi Wife. When prospects are
clouded by the dark shadows of an
guish, and the world 6eems, in a
moment of wretched forgctfulness,
like a barren desert, what bliss in
the thought that there is one being
who will sympathize with our sor
row, and cheer us with the tender
cst affection. When those who set
up as idols in the temple of friend
ship and esteem shall basely desert
the post of honor and integrity, is it
not happiness to have one who looks
fondly as ever on our fortune, and
loves with a purity and warmth
unknown to the most eacred friend
ship? A Widower.
A Western man having lost his

"Well, I guess you would look

joinder, "if you had to get up before
daylight, make the fires, draw wa

The other evening, round at Mc
Govern's saloon the boys were put
tingaup an claborato practical joke
on somebody, aud they asked old
Capt. Skiddy, who had just hap
pened in to take a baud.
'No, gentleman,' said that estima
ble old citizen, decisively ; 'you don't
catch me taking part in practical
jokes. I went out of that business
for good over ten years ago.'
'How's that,' asked the group of
'Well, it was in the winter of '70,
may be 71. I was living in Daven
port, Iowa, and a man came 'round
giving baloon ascensions. One day
it was advertised that the mayor of
the town was going up with him.
Now, the mayor was a big, fat man,
who always wore a light suit of
clothes and, a white hat. This put
me iu the notion of working off a
joke on the people. I got acquaint
ed with the aeronaut, aud he agreed
to assist me in the scheme. We
then got an old suit of light clothes
aud fixed up a dummy, which we
filled with sand, so that it weighed
about 200, and would, therefore,
drop straight and heavy like a man.
The day of the ascension there was
over 30,000 people on the ground,
aud the excitement waB very great,
as there was a slight wind blowing
at trie time. After the balloon got
up about a mile, and maybe that far
Bouth of town, they dropped the
'Big sensation, then eh?'
'Well, I should say so. But that's
just where I lost my grip. While
the crowd was shouting and goiug
wild with horror, I just laid down
on the ground, rolled over and
laughed till X was sick.'
'Should think the crowd would
have taken a tumble, too,' suggested
'But just wait. Of course the
crowd made a break out of town to
scrape up the remains, and I rushed
home to got my fishing tackle, for it
struck me that the most healthy
thing I could do was to go fishing
for a few days. Before I left the
house, however, I was arrested for

companied by the sheriff, rushed in
and collared me. They claimed
that tho dummy had fallen on a
farmer and driven his skull clear
into the heels of bis boots. They
said that tho balloouatic had turned
Btate's evidence, and that the chances
were I'd bo hung by a mob before
'That was rough.'
'Well, so I thought. I was just
scared plum to death, and I begged
the boys to stand by and protect me.
I ponied up $50 for legal expenses,
and they hid mo in the garret of a
neighbor's house. They kept me
there ten blessed days, and there
wasn't a day but they struck mo for
a twenty or two for contingencies.
One night tho whole gang came
around full of beer on my money,
mind you and said they had con
cluded as additional precaution to
hide me in the hollow of an'old oak
tree about three miles out in the
I saw through tho whole business
then, and drove 'em out with a club.
It was a clear case of biter bit, I
know, but they never lot up calling
me 'Dummy Skiddy' after that, until
they actually run rao out of town,
and I had to emigrate to this jump

The Soldier Reunlon.
The second annual re-union of
Nebraska veterans under the aus
pices of the Grand Array of the Re
public takes place at Liucoln during
September, beginning on the 5th and
continuing until the 10th.
The first Reunion, held at Central
City last year although gotten up
under many dis-advantages was on
the whole a success. It brought
together hundreds of comrades who
had fought together in the same reg
iments very many of them 6ide by
side in the same companies but who
up to that time did not know that
there was another man in Nebraska
whom they knew during the war.
Many old and pleasant acquaintan
ces were once more renewed, old
time recollections were freshened by
social intercourse and for a few days
the most pleasant features of a sol
dier's life were lived over again.
Hundreds of sturdy farmers came
to the re-union in their farm
wagonR, accompanied by their wives
and childrcu, who were thus enabled
to sec the sunny side of soldiering
in camp. The camp fire stories were
very interesting and often very pa
thetic when men reciU4Jheir ter
rible Bufferings in the reberprison
One of the advantages of the re
union was the military spirit which
it infused into the young men who
had never seen active service. It is
well that the memories of the last
war should be cherished and that
Young America should be inspired
with the patriotic spirit of their
The coming re-union at Lincoln
promises to be much larger than
that at Central City. The majority
of our farmers are in better financial
condition than they were a year ago.
Most of those who attended the last
re-union will doubtless be there and
thousands who were not able to at
tend last year will be preseut at Lin
coln in September. Preparations
on a very large bcale arc being made
by the people of Lincoln, aud ac
commodations will be furnished for
00,000 people. Many of the prom
inent generals of the war, from Gen.
Grant down to Ben. Butler, have
been invited, and some of them will
surely bo present. Every effort will
be put forth by the Grand Army to
make the occasion interesting and
Nebraska probably contains, in
proportion to her population, more
ex-veterans of tho Union Army than
any other state, and every veteran
who can should not fail to be pres

We took a trip to St. Paul, Neb.,
last week and noted some items on
the way. St. Paul is a flourishing
young town near the junction of
the North aud Middle Loup valleys
and is surrounded for many miles
by valley and bench lands making
au excellent location for a town. It
is the county seat of Howard coun
ty, and has grown rapidly since it
was reached by the TJ. P. Co's
branch railroad. It has at present
a large trade from the upper Loup
valloya, which it will hold a3 long
a3 it is the terminus of the railroad,
during which time it will undoubt
edly establish itself on a firm basis.
One remarkable feature of this town
is that it has two well patronized
newspapers, the Free Press and the
Phonoyrafih, both having a circula
tion of over 500, whereas the popu
lation of town is uot over GOO. The
Free Press is printed on a first-class
power press which is run by steam.
This is genuine enterprise in a town
so new and so small.
An interesting law suit was in
progress while we were there in
teresting because it "was an action
brought against a druggist for a
violatiou of the provisions of the
Slocumb bill. No intimation was
given in the complaint of what part
of the act was violated ; but when
proof had been made of the defend
ant's having sold liquor on or about
June 5th, and that he did uot obtain
his permit until the 17th of June,
the attorneys for the state moved
that the jury be dismissed aud the
prisoner bound over for appearance
at the next term of the district court
for selling liquor without a permit.
He mado his application for a per
mit as soon as tho law passed into
effect, and obtainod it as soon as
possible under the provisions -of tho
act, aud wo think it will bo a little
difficult to find a jury that will con
vict him. Schuyler 2Fcws.
Education in its broadest seiiRo.iR
undoubtedly the main business of
youth. Theirs is the season of prep
aration for a future life of action.
But wo are too apt to regard school
and study as tho whole of education,
whereas it is but a part, and is val
uabio only as it is made to con
tribute to the general fund. Often
the very best way to prepare to do
anything is to begin to do it. Prac
tice makes perfect, and facility in
anything is gained chiefly by con
tinual exercise in it. As life con
sists largely of work, it would seem
to be tho path of wisdom to accus
tom the boy and girl to take some
regular share in it suitable their years
that they may not, upon entering its
real business, stand aghast and over
whelmed at the multitude of claims
which they are powerless to fulfill.
The true end of all culture is to de
velop efficiency in action and noble
ness of character ;and the acquisition
of knowledge, though important as
one means, can never, by itself, pro
duce either of these. It must be
vitalized by individual thought and
utilized by personal action beforo it
can put real value into one's life, or
produce anything like an abundant
harvest. These processes should go
