Many business men laid in heavy
stocks of winter goods, such as over

have been slim. To a merchant car

We hear of a small herd of
young rowdies in town who amuse
themselves by annoying people at
their regular occupations, aud if
driven away, they retire to a safe
distance, aud where they can be still
safer by taking "foot-bail," and then
bombard the person they have been
tormenting with missiles of various
kinds. Some of these days these
youthful rowdies will attack . the
the wrong mau, and get from him
more than they bargained for. The
only proper safeguard for youth ot
this description is to have some
work for them to do. But this
course should be instituted long be
fore they enter the rowdy class, for
then it is a triple trouble, and in all
probability the young sinner has
by that time become so case-hardened
that he is on the lightning ex
press to destruction.
Wo were not aware until the
other day that E. A. Blodgett of
Merrick county, and J. O., his broth
er, of P -tte, were prisoners for
seven months at Andersonville dur
ing the Rebellion, having been cap
tured in October 'G4, aud discharged
by reason of the end of the war,
July 3d, '65. E. A. says that the
books he has read concerning the
sufferings of our eoldiers there, are
true, as far as they tell them, but no
pen can describe, what they there
endured. In a phrase, he gave a
very graphic picture of the situation,
when he said, "Most folks keep their
hogs better, because they have some
shelter, aud they feed them enough
to keep them from squealing, but we
were so weak we couldn't squeal."
We suggested to Mr. Blodgett that
he ought to put on record his expe
rienced there, for the benefit of his
tory. Every soldier who suffered
there should do his share to make
that phase of the Rebellion odious
We haven't the space to do it
justice. We had thought of em
ploying a special -engraver, but you
must picture it in your imagination.
It is Suuday. A tall, gaunt man,
with a patent canvas boat goes to
the Loup to fish. Now he is on the
water where it is deep ; he is fishing.
Now he is not fishing. The rear
end of his boat fills with wind and
throws him forward on his head,
while the canvas wraps itself close
about him. See ! he flounders and
struggles, and gets much wet, as to
his clothes. Look again, and you
will see him at Charlie Rickly's cab
in, denuded of his Sunday wearing
apparel, which he is drying at the
fire there, while the subject of our
imaginary pictures (wrapped up in
the skins of the cows that perished
last spring) is contentedly chewing
the cud of reflection. Yon can pic
ture him "hoofing it" borne, or bring
him there any way you cau imagine
it, it will be all the same to him.
Our information is perfectly reliable.

Saturday last one of the work
men at the Packing House came
near being scalded to death so
near that this writer wouldn't agree
to attempt the same thing as an ex
periment for all that the world could
lay down in the shape of "collat
eral." Edmund Moffit, in catching
hold of a struck hog, found that the
same wasn't good and dead, but too
late, because in the struggle he slip
ped aud fell over backwards, head
downward, into the scalding tank
the water being scalding hot. To
Sam'l Rickly and Mr. Kearney,
Moffit perhaps owes his life to-day,
they pulling him out at once and
taking care of him. He was badly
scalded on the back, left side and
arm, but is now doing as well as
could be expected. When asked
why, falling backwards and head
downward into the water, the skin
didn't peel off his face, he said that
he supposed it was because of the
grease. He shut his eyes and mouth,
but thinks he must have got some of
the water in his mouth, as his gums
are sore. He was narrowly saved
from such a death as may you never
From Mr. A. V. Lang we learn
that Mr. R. Rumble, of Boone pre
cinct, lost by fire, his barn and the
entire contents thereof, consisting of
team, wagon, harness, two calves,
five bogs, aud fifty chickens. The
fire originated from a spark from
the chimney of the house, during the
heavy wiud storm of last Wednes
day, aud in a few seconds the barn
with its contents were iu ashes.
Much sympathy is expressed for Mr.

tarmer, and a paper is being circulat

A Good Mliovrlagr.
J. R. Smith, of Monroe precinct,
owns a farm of 160 acres, about 120
under cultivation, for which, two
years ago, he paid $1600. This year
he raised, on 100 acres of it, 6,250
bushels of corn, which, at 42 cents a
bushel, would realize him the neat
sum of $2,625, or $1,025 dollars more
than the entire farm cost him ; be
sides this corn crop, he raised, the
past season, on the same place, 1,600
bushels of oats, 24 of flax, 50 of bar
ley and 50 of potatoes, a few bushels
of beans, aud sorghum enough to
make 112 gallons of syrup. The
Journal would like to devote con
siderable space between now and
the time to plant corn to the whole
subject of corn raiaiug, from the
selection of seed to the lime for husk
ing, for we regard this as the chief
crop for Nebraska.
The preliminary examination of
Mel. Moriarty, charged with com
mitting rape on the person of Caro
line Eickmyer, took place before
Justice Byron Millet Tuesday and
Wednesday last. The details of the
evidence of Mrs. Erickmyer are
too offensive and shocking for publi
cation. She is a married woman,
pc-hap8 forty or forty-five years old,
and is feeble looking. On the eve
ning (about six o'clock) wheu the
crime was committed, she was alone,
at her residence, her husband being
absent atone ot tho neighbors, half
a mile away. Dr. Edwards was
called shortly afterwards to see
the injured woman and gave his tes
timony in court, particularizing the
condition in which ho found her,
which is also too disgusting to ap
pear here. Mrs. Eickmyer identi
fied Moriarty as the man who com
mitted the assault upon her. The
Jourxal is loth to publish any ac
count of this kind, and would not
except upon the principle that all
should have notice that such crimes
are liable to be committed any day,
and to the end also that some of the
villains who attempt their perpetra
tion may forfeit their life therefor.
Moriarty was held to answer at the
next term of the District Court in a
bond for $1C30.
The houses of ill-fame are re
ceiving attention from our cotem
poraries. The Democrat says that
one physician of the place has been
called to treat one hundred and
eighty casee of disease, within the
last six mouths. We are told that
many of these cases are boys a9
young as fifteen, some of whom
would not be suspected by their
parents. It has been truthfully said,
and it is no less truthful because it
has been repeated so often, that ex
perience teaches a dear school, but
fools will learu in no other. Tbdse
who are steeped in sins are not
likely to heed 'the admonition of
mere words, and, unless recalled by
their own sense of right and duty,
must be left to plunge forward iuto
the inevitable night of disease, des
olation, remorse, death, and that
darkness which settles down upou
the soul given up to the base lusts
of the flesh. But society, the or
ganized civil community, owes it as
a duty to the ignorant, the inex
perienced youth of our land to guard
them against the wiles of all wicked
classes, and more especially this
most vile and loathsome class, who
propagate a disease that may truth
fully be said to be the originator of
mure diseases among mankiud than
any other, the prolific source of dis
eases that touch the very life of the
rece itself, poisoning the blood, and
thus inflicting untold miseries upon
succeeding generations. Truly, the
crimes of the parent, iu this respect,
are written in the very lineaments
of the children to the third and the
fourth generation. These houses of
prostitution are nuisances under our
laws, and can be suppressed, if the
power of the law is exercised upon
them. No amount of theorizing,
however, is going to suppress them.
Those who know the facts with suf
ficient certainty to testify to them
under oath, should go before the
proper authorities aud have these
nuisances abated, or our executive
authorities, satisfied of the facts, and
of the terrible consequences of the
unchecked vice, must, backed by
good citizens, take the proper means
of finding a way to get rid of these
I 'aces of public pollution.
The Creamery What Breed of
Cowv to GeU
The Creamery will produce quite
a revolution in regard to cattle. Not
only will many more cows be milk
ed than heretofore, but every one
will, in selecting cattle, have an eye
to their milking qualities. Among
the most noted breeds in this respect
are undoubtedly the Jerseys, the
Holsteins, and some families of the
Short Horns. Now, if milk and
butter were the only consideration,
aud if the Jersey's could be had at
anything like reasonable prices, then
the writer of this would say, get the
Jersey's by any means ! But in the
first place they are almost beyond
the reach of the common farmer
$300 being asked for common Jer
sey's; aud then they are so small
and so bony that there is no hope of
making beef of them when they get
old, nor even of their offspring un
less they are crossed with some
heavy bodied breed. The latter ob
jection cannot be raised against the
Holsteins. They are a heavier kind
of cattle. They are not ouly good
milkers but also good beef cattle.
Yet there are some objections to
them. Like the Jersey's they are
held so high that the common farmer
can hardly buy them, $300 being the
price of common Holstein heifers.
Besides this, the writer having bceu
in their native country and kuowiug
something of how they are kept
there, has his grave doubts whether
they will answer for America in the
long run. In their native country
so much labor is bestowed upon
them and their stables and eurrouud
ings that we here iu this country,
where labor is so high, cannot at
tempt to imitate the "Miuheers" in
their way of keeping these animals,
and if uot kept as at home, they can
hardly be expected to do as well as
at home, uor to keep up their high
standard even if at first they should
do as well.
But the Short Horn or Durham
breed ib thoroughly acclimated, is
not held so high any more, because
they are very numerous in this coun
try, and are thus within the reach of
almost anybody. They are all good
beef cattle, but they are not all good
milkers, and since it is the milking
qualities that we are after, care must
be taken when selecting animals for
that purpose. There are families of
Short Horns which are extraordi
nary good milkers, aud there are
others not so good. Purchasers
should be careful to buy only of
reliable breeders, whose veracity is
Finally good milkers must be
made such and can be made of almost
any breed. The youuger heifers
calve the more care aud diligence is
bestowed upon milking, the earlier
it is commenced the better milkers
can bo made of young animals. If
this be true of common stock, and
no one will dare to deny it, then it
is still more 60 of the better breeds
spoken of above. The advice to all
should be, get the best you can, and
make the best you can of it.
In my next, Mr. Editor, I will,
with your permission, say something
about collecting the milk and cream
in the country. A. H.
Genoa, Neb., Jan. 4, '82 .
"Editor Journal: All the papers
that speak of creameries and butter
factories say that it is a paying busi
ness to the farmer and raiser, who
sends hia milk or cream to be man
ufactured. I admit all this, but
would like to know how well it
pays. I waut some figures to show
what I can realize, before taking an
interest in the business. Will some
of your readers who arc cotupeteut
answer the following questions:
How many pounds of milk does it
take to make one pound of cream ?
How many pounds aud ouuees of
cream are needed to make one pound
of butter? What is one pound of
cream worth, compared with the
price ot one pound of butter? What
isa pound of creamery butter worth,
compared with the price of ordinary
farm butter? What has been the
average price of creamery butter
the last year in Omaha, Chicago or
any other regular market ? By giv
