The enterprising business men of
Schuyler are not slow to see any
advantages that may accrue to their
town by the establishment of far
reaching ventures. Recently a com
mittee visited this city with a view
to ascertaining facts with reference
to pork-packing, and the Sun makes
these, among other, remarks on the
situation: "The Columbus packing
company was organized last Fall.
The capital stock is $50,000. Work
on the buildings was begun in Oc
tober and packing began about the
middle of December and continued
until March. In that time between
six and seven thousand hogs were
packed. Arrangements are now
being made to increase that number
during the coming season to twenty
five thousand head. The packing
housc-inw i. . cregt nep to the
business interests of Columbus, tub
establishment could pay a price for
hogs most shippers could not meet
and this attracted farmers from a
great distance. Colfax county con
tributed liberally to the ColumbUB
packing house supply last winter and
unless a similar institution is started
here the contributions will be on a
still more liberal scale another season.
But a town meeting or a ward caucus
won't start a packing house. When
ever a few men of capital and energy
will take hold of the enterprise it
will ifaove and not till then. Res
olutions and salt barrel oratory won't
help it. We have enough of capital
and enough energy in Schuyler to
set the institution right on its feet if
the men possessing these requisites
will but come to the front, and at this
writing we have every reason to be
lieve that they will."
We were much surprised at the
announcement of the death of Martha
Kennedy, wife of Martin S. Kennedy,
of Cadiz, Ohio, on the 3d of July, '82.
But a short time since we enjoyed
her society and hospitality at her own
home, when she was in the very best
of health and spirits. She was sud
denly and unexpectedly stricken
down by spinal disease. She was an
unexceptionable woman and must re
ceive her reward.
A number of members of the Al
liauce (none but actual operative
farmers can be members), will be a
little surprised at the resolutions
adopted at the county alliance. Al
ready different constructions are be
ing placed upon the resolutions, and
to some ardent republicans (aud per
haps democrats) an explanation will
be in order. Do they mean that for
mer party tics are to be abandoned,
and all former political loves buried
in the alliance? Do they mean that
the alliance in this county and gener
ally is to be a separate, distinct polit
ical organization, membership in
which would be exclusive of aud in
consistent with membership in any
other political organization? If so,
we assure the gentlemen who voted
for those resolutions that there are
numbers of their organization, as
firmly fixed in the faith of their gen
eral principle as any, who will not
follow such leading.

Editor Journal : Pleaso allow me
to correct a few of the mistakes that
occurred in my letter as printed in
the Journal of the 21st.
In the first place there are no "tulip
beds" here, but plenty of tulies, a kind
of worthless flag or rush. But the
most astounding assertion is that the
red clever has a stately blue blossom
and the root is U3ed as food ! What I
referred to was the wild potato grow
ing here, aud a portion of that clause
was left out entirely. Then, again, it
was to the lady of the manor that I
recommended my hungry friends, not
to the lord. While my humble sug
gestion in regard to the old school of
etiquette was directed to the new
school, not to the men.
The fault was doubtless due to my

Ah to the Small-Pox.
The inmates of the hospital were
five grown-up people, six sisters and
five children, besides those taken
sick. The well have been removed
to a small house at the rear of the
hoapital. The names of the sick so
far, are Willie Boyle, Geo. McAnany,
Rudolph Caboska, Francis Persal,
Willie Conway, Lena Stonton, Edie
Boyle and one of the sisters. The
deaths have been Edie Boyle, Wed
nesday, July 5tb, and Willie Conway,
July Uth, 8:30.
To the Journal it looks as though
there had been some strange pro
ceedings going on. We are credibly
informed that the church authorities
at the Monastery, within a few feet
of the hospital pest-house, contrary
to the orders or the Mayor, had in
vited members to come there at 2
o'clock in the morning, and had sent
word to their Polish adherents to
come into church; also that during
one of the public days of the church
not long since, two of the inmates of
the hospital, children, were put into
the procession and mixed with the
crowd. While it is true that these two
children were not afflicted with the
small-pox, it is yet true that, accord
ing to all our American ideas of the
contageous character of this disease,
whoever allowed this thing is severely
reprehensible. It strikes us that the
Father Superior at the Monastery
has been dealt with all too leniently
in this matter, being allowed to go
back and forth, in hospilal and out,
t.ot altogether just as he pleased, but
pretty much as he would, believing
that the small-pox was not a partic
ularly dangerous disease, and that
there was no call for the civil au
thorities beiug so strict aeainst tlm
probability of its spread.
We must say to all concerned that
this people will neither sanction nor
tolerate any such work, and the soon
er it ceases the better for all concern
ed. The Sisters are deserving of all
praise for their falthfnl. fniiisro
and kindly ministrations to the afflicted.
We copy from Northwestern Law
Reporter of Julv 1st, which will be
of more or less interest to our readers.
In the cane of Gerhold v. Wyss,
from Platte couuty, the court held
that "a man formally married to a
woman who, because of her insanity,
which he discovered soon afterwards,
was incapable of entering into the
marriage contract, and continuing
thereafter voluntarily to co habit
with her as his wife, is under a legal
obligation to support her; and, hav
ing furnished such support, he canuot,
upon a decree of separation on the
ground of the invalidity of the mar
riage, make the same a charge against
her separate estate.
In Friedhoff & Co. v. Smith," a
parol lease for two years, although
void by the statute, yet if the tenant
enter into possession may be valid as
a lease for one year."
No matter how good the season,
unless the crops are harvested and
cared for the labor is wholly or par
tially thrown away. Improper stack
ing of grain and hay, as well as im
proper shelter after threshing have
been prolific causes, of loss, here as
Everybody recognizes the necessity
of care in stacking grain, but not so
readily as to hay, and now that the
hay crop is becoming valuable for
shipment, to the amount of tens of
thousands of dollars to each county
in the Platto valley, it is well to rec
ognizo the fact that care is money.
The following suggestions from the
Schuyler Sun we know to be timely
in more counties than Colfax:
"As tho season for putting up hay
approaches, there are some sugges
tions that become timely. The pro
portion of hay that is spoiled each
year through ignorance or neglect, is
astonishing. One of the principal
causes of bay spoiling is neglect in
stacking. The custom of sweeping
up the bay for a base prevails to a
considerable extent, and when this is
done the bottom of the stack can be
relied upon to spoil if left standing
any great length of time. Mr. Clark
son, who has had occasion to investi
gate this subject extensively, says that
in order to keep the hay in good,
saleable condition until Spring, the
stack should be built on the bottom,
solidly and carefully, and not less
than sixteen feet high. Too much care
cannot be taken in topping out the
stack so that it will shed water prop
erly. There are many here who ex
pect to realize a good profit from the
hay crop, and upon such these sug
gestions should not be lost, as those
buying to bale and ship cannot use
hay that is in the least damaged. Last
winter when hay was high, the dam
aged portion of tho stack conld be
disposed of to good advantage, but an
ordinary season it would be a total
The Foarth at Wattuvllle.
Quite a crowd of people assembled
in Mr. Nicholson's grove at Watts
ville, on the fourth. They came from
all directions, far and near. Mr. J.
Ferree brought the glorious old flag
of the stars and stripes poised high
upon his wagon, and quite a number
of vehicles well loaded with people
and big baskets followed him from
the west, while others came from the
east, north, and south.
Rov. A. J. Wright from St. Ed
wards had been requested to address
the meeting, which he did in his
usual earnest and feeling way. He
was followed by Rev. Mr. Osborn
from Massachusetts, a brother to our
fellow-citizen Osborn. He said a
good deal in praise of Nebraska, of
its splendid looking crops, aB well as
of the people composing the crowd,
among whom he did not see nor
smell any whiskey.
Rev. A. Henricb being called npon
responded in a few remarks. It being
a Sunday School pic-nic as well as
Fourth of July celebration, be main
tained that the Sunday School work
had a good deal to do with support
ing and preserving our liberties for
future generations. Somo little
amusement waB produced, by the re
lation of an incident of a bunch of
sheep running after a big white
poodle. He advised the people not
to run after a poodle.
Then followed the discussion of the
substantial piled in great abundance
on a long table, as well as spread on
the grass, where a number of families
dined by themselves.
For the amusement of young and
old a swing had been provided and
some youngsters tried their best to
get hold of the silver dollar stuck
on top of the greased pole, and one
little fellow finally succeeded and got
it, under the cheers of the crowd.
Altogether it was an occasion of
enjoyment and pleasure, and the
Wattsville people deserve credit for
the arrangements made and provided.
