One of Platte county's farmers
says that box elder trceB make a
splendid hedge ; that be saw in Sarpy
county such a hedge, close enough
and strong enough to turn chickens,
hogs, sheep and horses. The method
is to set the trees where, (if it was a
"worm" fence the corners would be),
and when they grow to be about five
feet high cut the tops off. This will
start the undergrowth so as to form a
close strong fence.
Thos. McPhillips has, probably,
one of the best timber claims in the
country, twenty -two acres out of
eighty being devoted to trees of va
rious varieties walnut, ash, oak, box
elder, elm, cottonwood, butternut, &c.
They have been planted five years,
were put in ten feet apart, corn being
worked in between for the first four
years. Mc. ought certainly to be
prond of the handsome appearance
that his trees give to his place, and of
the value that they add to it
A reader of the Journal assures
us that one who has never tried it,
can scarcely imagine the utility of
fenced fields for stock of all kinds ;
that there are benefits in several
ways the stock are greatly improved
in condition, above the ordinary
method of herding in the west, rest
ing when they wish, aBd grazing late
and early ; that the stock have their
freedom, and are not chased by herd
er and dogs ; the cost of herding is
dispensed with; the annoyance of
herding (it is probably the most ob
jectionable labor done upoa a farm)
is got rid of. The Journal would
add to this array of benefits that the
fencing should also include the lands
that are cropped, so that when the
harvest which the farmer takes off in
bis wagon is placed in the granary,
the second harvest may be ready for
the free use and benefit ef the kegs
and cattle. The Journal believes
that farming will not be at its fall
tide here, nntil the farms are properly
fenced. -

A rumor was circulated here
Friday that Guiteau had bad a respite
of two hours granted. Tho conject
ures as to the reason therefor were
various, some supposing it to be to
examine into his alleged insanity;
others, that he had tried to commit
suicide and the authorities were wait
ing until he should be decently ready
to be hanged, &c, &c. One of our
citizens went so far as to say he had
always thought the assassin would
escape his just deserts, and that tb.e
president would risk his own life in
pardoning him.
Farmers are beginning to be a
little anxious about their wheat crop.
We have had and are continuing to
hayo so much rain that there will be,
if it continues, a question as to what
the harvest shall be. At present, the
prospect is very fair, leaving plenty
of time between showers for harvest
ing. The numerous chinch bngs on
the ground are kept there pretty well
by the wet weather, and it may con
tinue thus long enough to enure the
crop. An excellent crop of oats and
rye can be looked for, and the corn is
growing equal to the best season in
Nebraska, which is all that can be
desired. In every direction that we
are aware of the careful, industrious
farmer has reason to congratulate
himself upon the outlook.
Thoee who are looking for work,
and then when they can get a job,
don't accept it, had better five Co
lumbus the go-by. One of our citi
zens, a landlord, was applied to the
other day by one of these chaps for a
meal. He told him he could give
him a job of work and furnish him a
meal in payment, but this didn't suit
the would-be industrious stranger,
and the probability is that be found a
soft-hearted stranger who donated a
meal to pamper his laziness and in
crease in him the spirit of restless,
aimless roving and disgraceful beg
gary. The self-respecting, industri
ous portion of the community owe it
to their own sense of what is fair and
proper not to support these able
bodied tramps, but save their pity as
well as their dollars for tho really
helpless and feeble.
Hon. G. C. Barnnm returned the
first of the week from his trip to Col
orado, Wyoming, Utah and Idaho.
Like everybody else who has been
there, he was charmed with Salt Lake
City and its surroundings. The wide
streets, the running water, the fruit
and flower gardens are all delightful
to the eye. He says the Mormons are
a very industrious and thrifty people,
and, withal, determined to maintain
their interest in polygamy, even un
der the new law which allows no
participation in public matters by
practical polygamists. They claim
friends enough among the non-polyg-amists
to still wield the political pow
er of the territory. Mr. Barnnm met
one of his youthful acquaintances
there, who has several wives and is
the happy father of 36 children.
During a drive through the pre
cincts of Columbus, Sherman and
Bismark the first of the week the
writer of this itejn observed some of
the finest crops of small grain he has
seen in a long time. The season at
first was a little backward for corn.
but during the favorable weather of
the past few week this cereal has
made rapid strides towards insuring
an abundant yield. At the farm of
ex-Commissioner Wise he saw oats
that would be hard to beat; also a
honey locust hedge which is in a
thriving condition. John is making
some valuable improvements on his
dwelling, and when completed will
make a cosy and comfortable abode.
The writer takes this method of re
turning the thanks of himself and
companion to Mr. and Mrs. Ed. New
man and the Adamy Bros, for their
hospitality iu appeasing the wants of
the inner man.

-John Huber's "gentle racket" will
be in briBk demand again as of yore,
and what Jno. don't know of public
sales who is having them,wbat is to be
sold, what prices they ought to bring,
etc., will hardly be worth inquiring
after. A sale of a man's entire per
oonal or real effects is an important
matter, and John makes it his business
to consult the best interests of those
who employ him.
Geo. Birney believes in manuring
land ; last year he hauled on to his
fielks 500 loads, the year before 700.
No wonder that be has been very
successful in the 25 years he has been
here, raising 70 to 80 bushels of corn
to the acre, making improvements,
&c. With good farming he unites
stock raising, and furnishes for the
mirket some of the best hogs and
cattle raised in the State. He be
lieves in plenty of good water, feed
and shelter.
Mr. J. B. Rynerson, recently
from III., is very favorably impressed
with Nebraska, though he seems to
thiuk the lightnings of heaven are a
little nearer to us than to older states.
It used to be told as that in the early
days of Nebraska the thunder and
lightning storms traveled right along
on top of the ground, and that it was
uo uncommon thingto see the prairie
schooner staked and roped solidly to
the earth, with a lightning rod
stretched towards the threatening
clouds above.
Ono of the farmer's chief prob
lems just now is, What to do with
the potatoe bugs. If there are several
acres of the valuable tubers on the
farm, the work of destroying tho bugs
takes a considerable portion of the
farmer's time and attention, but to
have a crop, they must be destroyed.
These pernicious pests increase at
such a rapid rate that they will over
run your crop unless you destroy
tbem betimes. "Each female is ca
pable of depositing upwards of a
thousand eggs before she becomes
barren, and in from thirty to forty
days from the time they are deposited,
they will have produced perfect
beetles. These beetles are again
capable of depositing eggs in about
two weeks after issuing from the
ground, and thus, in about fifty days
after the egg is laid, the offspring
begins to propagate." A good
authority gives the following method
of applying Paris green, which seems
the most effectual manner of getting
rid of the bugs, especially in dry
weather as in rainy weather, the
poison is apt to be washed off the
vines. As it is a preparation of
arsenic, and is a deadly poison, it
should be handled by very careful
persons. ''One part of Paris green
may be mixed with about twenty of
cheap flour, and dusted over the vines
early in the morning, while the dew
is on the leaves. The simplest way
is to sift the flour from a fine muslin
bag attached to a pole, beating the
bag with a stick, or from a dredging
box." Flour is better than ashes be
cause it will stick closer to the leaves.
One application is said to be suf
ficient for one brood. Destroy the
eggs which will be found in clusters
on the nnder side of the leaves.

The Fair
Under the management of the Columbus
Driving Park and Fair Aasociation.which
was held Monday and Tuesday, was an
enjoyable affair to those who take an in
terest In contests of speed and skill.
The attendance on the first day was
rather light, on the second a gratifying
increase, in fact a large attendance, and
the weather was all that could be asked.
The program was, in brief, about as
follows: A gams of base bail between the
Keystones of Columbus and the Albions
of Boone county, the former nine con
sisting of C. and F. Wake.Loeb, Brindley,
Evans, Scott, Baker, Hudson and Fair

clubs two of Columbus, and one from
Platte Center. Columbus No. 1, Jackson,
Lundy, Arnold, Hays and Schroder scor

When viewed by an unprejudiced eye,
Is simply a grand and magnificent
State. Its broad prairies for farming
and grazing purposes are not excell
ed ; and a few more years will witness
the raising of all the best kinds of
fruit, equal to any raised in the older
states. Tho longer one remains and
witnesses the products and advanta
ges of the country, the stronger the
attachment of the settler becomes for
his new home. Old home has just
claims on the affections, and once in a
while a new settler in Nebraska makes
a mistake by being controlled by old
home ties, and thus drawn back by
bis former love.
If facts are not stated in what fol
lows any number of living witnesses
are at hand to correct them. Rev. W.
T. Price some years since purchased
land some four miles east of this city,
erected new and comfortable build
ings thereon in a beautiful location,
and in a short time bad bis farm well
under cultivation. He frequently
acted as minister to and worshiped
with the M. E. congregation of this
city, with great acceptauce to the peo
ple, aud his social relations must have
been very agreeable with our citi
zens. Suddenly he met a sad Iobb. in
the death of his wife, and in the days
and nights of bis troubles be conclu
ded there was no remedy but to sell
his farm and return to his old friends
and home in Western Virginia, which
in a short time he accomplished. He
stopped only a brief time in Virginia
and then returned to Nebraska, and
iq a few months purchased another
farm near Richland, Colfax county,
Neb., a beautiful location in a rich
farming and grazing country. This
is one instance in which the beauty
and advantages of Nebraska over old
home attachments, hills and rocks
prevailed. Here he has no rocks to
remove, no steep hills to climb and
no side hills to farm nothing but a
breaking plow and a strong team of
horses are needed to turn over the
sod, and your fields are ready for corn
the first year and thereafter for all
farming purposes. No worry or
trouble in getting in and cultivating
tame grasses, as the entire prairie
are covered with rich nutritious
grasses, which fatten stock very rap
idly, with plenty of natural hay land
to supply the demand in every neigh
borhood. Just now a large number of persons
are locating in the State, some taking
new lands and others purchasing im
proved farms. We recommend to all
seeking new homes in the State that
a personal inspection of the country
is the proper tbing to aid you in form
ing a correct opinion ; at all events do
not come without doing bo, unless

Tho Journal's information is to the
effect that gambling is still engaged
iu, within the limits of the city, but
that it is not so open and apparent as
heretofore, in fact that most of it
takes place now in day time, when
the movements of officials can be no
ticed ; in an attic, where the gamblers
canuot be seen ; with the stairway
aud entrances well guarded against
the admission of intruders, and with
concealed places of exit.
It is something to say that the
youth of our city do not now, as a
rule, engage in this fascinating crime,
but it would be something to know
that it was no longer practiced among
Tho Journal has become odious to
certain gentlemen, it seems, for its
outspoken, straightforward course in
this matter. If the truth which ouirht
to be published is odious, it is no fanlt
of ours, and we assure these gentle
men that wo wish them, one aud all,
personally, tho best of good fortune,
except that which comc3 through
success at the gaming table, and it is
because we wish them no harm that
we persist in calling loudly for the
suppression of this vice iu Columbus.
It onght not be necessary for citizens
to wait until some of their owu friends
are on the high road to ruin before
they think and feel and talk and act
concerning this thing one of the
uses of the intellect is to apprehend
the results of different courses of ac
tion, and to know that what affects
a considerable portion of a communi
ty affects all of it, and that unpunish
ed violation of the laws of the laud,
in one instance, tend to bring con
tempt upon our system of govern
There is One ever near us
When our hearts with anguish ache.
There is One willing to hear us
If we to him our trials take.
Though prone to disbelieve it
Yet we read in His word,
Grace is for all who receive it
Of this truth we are assured.
Darkness oft obscures the way.
We scarce can see for blinding tears.
'Tis then we need to pray
To Him who can dispel our fears.
If we feel by nim forsaken,
We should call upon His name
And with a faith yet unshaken
Persevere and trust the same.
Over the rugged walks of life
The Savior is a constant puiilo
Leading us through worldly strife
While we have our Lord denied.
Oh, may our lives be like Jesus'
In every word, thought and deed,
For He ever, ever sees us
Aud supplies our greatest need.
