Many thought we were to have
a blizzard Sunday night, and were

a lively contest for the secretaryship
of the Board, ex-governor Furnas,
D. II. Wheeler, and Charles Walker
being candidates. We think that
Platte county's choice would be D.
H. Wheeler, as he is very favorably
known to many of our citizens. In
all the long years of his service, as
secretary there is nothing spoken
against him that we remember. ex

As will be seen in another place,
our young friend, J. B. Delsman,

ished here admirably in bis business,
since be set foot upon our soil years
ago, aud by liberal and upright
dealing has not only built up a large
and increasing trade, but accumulat
ed also hosts of friends. Both of
these things are indispensable to the
business man, to assure his success.
It will be seen by his notice else
where that Mr. Delsman returns his
hearty thanks to customers for their
past favors, and hopes to deserve a
coutinuHnce of the same by well,
in short, selling them the beat of
goods at the lowest possible prices

It is said that some of the gen
erals of olden time, notably Cyrus
and Cai3ar, we believe, knew all
their soldiers, and could call them
by name, and that it was customary
with the shepherds of old to call the
individual members of their flocks
by their names, but such cases of
memory are not justifiable in these
days, and the faculty should not be
put to tasks of this sort. We are
moved to these remarks by the fact
that one of our subscribers wrote
us recently to change his address,
without giving the name of the post
office to which his Journal had
been going. We don't write the
names every week as we used to do,
and so when you want your address
changed, send us the old one, as well
as the new. V

An effort will be made to secure
the next annual reunion of the G. A.
R. at this place. Not less than eight
thousand persons is estimated as the
average attendance at Lincoln last
year. The number has increased
every year since the first reunion,
set on foot by Capt. John Hammond
of this place, and held at Warren's
Grove, Butler county. We don't
know how much of a contribution
it will take to secure the next re
union for Columbus, but we do
know that those having charge of
the matter will not be able to find in
the state a better place, in every res
pect, as to the conveniences and
comforts of camp, as well as access
by railroad or other conveyance. A
delegation from Baker Post ought to
go next week fully armed and equip
ped with the needful guaranties to
secure the next reunion.
The dry -goods peddlers are
abroad iu the land. We don't know
what particular scheme they have on
baud this time, but several years
ago, numbers of our citizens were
"taken in" badly by some of these
gentry. The better way is to buy
what goods you want of the regular
dealers, those who are here to stay
and listen to your after grievances,
if you have any. Under no circum
stances should you sign any paper
for these traveling chaps.
Chas. Reinke has left with us
what appears to be the heart of the
horn of a buffalo, taken out of a
well recently dug on his farm in the
Shell veekvalley, at V depth of
twenty-six (feet from Sthe surface.
Mr. Reinke tells us that on"the farm
of his neighbor, Mr. Swarz, nearly
the entire skeleton of a buffalo, was
found at about the same depth. Not
far from these farms,on Franz Heng
gler's place, several years ago, were
found the remains of a mastodon,- a
huge land animal, allied to the ele
phant, but now an extinct species
altogether, and these remains were
taken out at a depth of six feet only
from the surface. We know of sev
eral instances in this and Colfax
county of bits of trees being taken
out at a depth of twenty-five feet.
Will some scientific brother step
forward and give us a theory of the
formation of the soil under us?
M. Hollerin has some good ideas
on raising stock. Provide them
warm shelter, and keep them in
good condition all the time, so that
if extra bad weather comes, or you
wish, at any time, to sell, you will be
ready. If cattle are poor and have
no shelter or insufficient shelter, a
heavy percentage is sure to be lost
by death during stormy weather,
and these losses in Platte county
have been sufficiently numerous to
pay for the erection of brick barns,
roofed with Blate, at moderate pri
ces, and the farmers here are no
more careless than elsewhere. It
must never be forgotten by those
whose interests are mainly bound
up with the weather, that, although
Nebraska has more fine days in the
year than probably any other coun
try, yet those other few days are
sometimes b-a-d, and, when protect
ingagainst the weather, cannot safely
be counted out. For losses in the
storm of the middle of April 73,
and in the long series of deep snows
of last winter, there is more than
ordinary excuse, but if all of us who
are on farms would resolve not to
own any living creature that cannot
be properly housed and cared for,
our farms would bo all the more
A Cincinnati firm has plastered
the newspapers of the country with

nature. Tho credulous might easily

philosopher's stone bad been found,
the elixir of the gods, or the spring
of perennial youth, from the won
derful properties set forth, of this
wonderful compound. If one-tenth
of what has been claimed for it was
true, this proprietary save-all would
soon be in universal demand, and
command a fabulous price. Num
bers of enterprising people, no
doubt, have invested some money in
this marvellous stuff, but it is pretty
safe to say that, if great hopes have
been built upon it, they will be
dashed. We hear of one of our cit
izens who invested a small sum,
thinking that, possibly, there might
be a degree of truth in the wonder
ful claims put forth. He tells us,
however, that it is "no good," having
tried it on eggs, potatoes, corn cobs,
etc., and gives the result of his ex

A. H. and I am not disposed to dis

four months from calviug, if the calf
is taken off and the mother brought
to the pail, while on the other hand
if the calf Is allowed to run with hor
(and the past season she nursed two
calves and good ones at that), she
will continue in profit for more than
nine months. It may be said that
this is an exceptional case, but I am
informed that this is not unusual
with Hcrefords. If the object of
farmers is milk, then I would en

Pink Eye is an old disease under
a new name, being identical in its
character and symptoms with that of
Influenza, and of these it assumes a
great variety, prominent among
them, an indisposition to eat or to
move about, the head droops as
though too heavy, the eyes become
surcharged with blood which has
probably given the' name to the dis
ease, and one or both the bind legs
become swollen, and there is running
at the eyes. The following dose
should be administered early, as it
helps to clear out the digestive cavi
ity of all morbid material : Sulphur,
five drachms, Cream of Tartar, two
drachms, Salt one oz. ; mix with
flax seed tea for drench. As most
persons have not the means of
weighing out these proportions I
would state that a teaspoon level full
is near enough to a drachm for all
common purposes, and as 6alt has a
good effect on this disease, the pa
tient should be allowed all be will
eat. The best drink for the patient
is flax seed tea, with cream of tartar,
a teaspoon full to a quart of the for
mer, though occasional drinkB of
water with the chill taken off, a quart
or two at a time, will not be objec
tionable. If the kidneys should be
affected, oue ounce of spirits of nitre,
diluted with water, will be benefi
cial. The disease will generally run
its course in 4 or 5 days, and the
patient duriug this time should be
kept in a comfortable stable and out
of any drafts; when the appetite
begius to return, soft feed is consid
ered preferable, and a little ginger,
and gentian mixed with it, will help
to give tone to the stomach. The
foregoing brief notes have been
taken from tho prescriptions of a
noted veterinary, and I have tested
them successfully with my own
The Creamery Hew te get the
Pr offbeat f It ?
There can be no doubt, Mr. Editor,
that even those farmers who will
not, or cannot contract to let the
Creamery Co. have milk or cream
that even those will be benefited by
it. It is a sure fact that more cows
will be milked within the radius
of the Creamery than ever before;
hence, more calves will be raised
(milking cows can be bred oftener
than nursing ones), that is one thing
of general benefit.
The second and more important
one is that the Creamery is going to
raise the price of butter. How can
that be possible ? someone may ask,
it will produce a greater supply
but not a greater demand? Yes, it
will produce both. Its product will
seek a market elsewhere, and it will
find it, because creamery butter com
mands the highest price anywhere.
Shipping all its produce to distant
places, it gives the small producer a
chance for a good home market.
The writer of this saw at once,
when this project was entered upon,
what good there was to como from
it for the surrounding country, and
how the enterprising men composing
the Company doservo the good will
aud hearty co-operation of the com
munity, and they need that. They
want, wo understand, at once, the
milk or cream of 300 or 400 cows,
for which they will pay such a price
and furnish such facilities for raising
cream and for collecting it that
every intelligent man and woman
will see, they "mean business," and
they intend to "live and let live."
Farmers in different neighbor
hoods, therefore, should take steps
immediately to find out how many
cows they could contract for, so as
to make it pay for the Company to
send a cream collector around in
such regions. Lot the people meet
and discuss the matter among them
selves, pro and con. This is an en
terprise which need not fear the
light, on the contrary the more it is
discussed the better it is for ail con
cerned. If the writer of this is correctly
informed, the process of raising
cream by means of the milk cans
which the Company will furnish, ex
ceeds anything else in this line, i. e.,
it will raise better and more cream
by far, than the old method. Add
to this the fact that they will pay as
much for the amount of cream re
quired for a pound of butter as we
could not often get for that article
itself, and all that without troubling
our overburdened farmer wives with
collecting cream and churning but
ter, and it would seem to the writer
that every farmer who can make it
possible, should join the army of
cream-furnishers. A. H.
