wbb his reference to the question of
the sale of our landed endowment,
and the investment of the school
funds. He spoke of the low price at
which our university lands can be
sold, of their rapid sale, and of the
difficulty, indeed, the impossibility, of
finding a safe investment for the pro
ceeds of these sales, which, to the
amount of nearly $200,000, are now
lying idle in the treasury. He char
acterized the action of the last legis
lature in refusing to stop the sale of
these lands as incomprehensible ob
stinacy, and appealed from that body
to the superintendents and teachers,
asking them to stir up the people in
every township and school district to
a public sentiment that would force
the next legislature to remedy this
waste of the inheritance of the chil
dren of Nebraska. The remedy ad
vocated by the speaker was that of
ceasing altogether to sell the common
school and university lands, and the
adoption of a system of leasing or a
rental which would be a moderate
interest on appraisements made at
stated intervals."

Editor Journal: After a thir
teen years continuous residence in
Nebraska, your bumble correspond
ent thought ho had earned the privi
lege of a thirty or forty days rambling
visit among the fruits and flowers of
this portion of the "sunny south," a
visit that we have for some time an
ticipated making. In pursuance of
that object, on the 4th of the present
month we bade good-bye to wife and
family and with grip-sack in hand
started for Rising City, shook a few
of our dear o)d friends by the hand,
and with eyes open although dimmed
somewhat by age, took our seat on
the train for a ride of somewhat over
nine hundred miles to this place,
where we are at the present staying.
As the train slowly moved from the
depot wc looked off over the beauti
ful undulating sheen of prairie ou
which wo with mauy other dear old
neighbors commenced in 1871 turuiug
over the black rich earth, which but a
few years before was supposed to bo
an arid desert. Aud, dear Journal
readers, while thus looking, notwith
standing our haps and many mis-haps,
where there was nothing as far as the
eye could reach but an ocean of grass
which to all appearance reached as
far as space extended, now were fine
farms, with budding groves, and
mostly god And neat farm houses;
the deer aud the antelope had given
place to many of the horned kine,
and pens of fat porkers were grind
ing the thousands of acres of corn,
pressing it into smaller bulk, that our
railroad might have sufficient capaci
ty to carry the various products of
the numerous farms to market. Our
pretty village, too, with its graded
school, its fine churches, neat build
ings, large stores woll filled in the
many and varied kinds of business,
presided over by gentlemen that had
prospered and grown up with us
duriHg the years we had been to
gether, made rather a pleasant picture
in which we had acted a small and
humble part. As a description of
our journey to Omaha would not be
interesting, suffice it to say that David
City, Valparaiso and Wahoo are the
best centers west of the Platte river,
and soon reaching Omaha we could
but wonder at its growth in costly
buildings, business, and energy, and
with barely time to cast a glance
across the muddy Missouri,we merely
looked over to Council Bluffs, and at
8 p. m. started south. It being dark,
and we sleepy, we have nothing far
ther to say in this letter than that
from Leavenworth, Kansas, where
morning found us, we shall bo as ex
plicit and truthful as possible of
scenery, country aud products, which
without doubt will bo new to most of
your readers.

May 24th, 1884. ,
Editor Journal : It was with
some disappointment that we awoke
at Leavenworth, Ks., to find spring
nearly a9 backward as with us of
central Nebraska.
Our route to St. Louis was via the
M. P. R. R. and while gliding smooth
ly along towards the borders of Mis
souri our thoughts would drift back
to the earlier days of her infancy with
all their attendant misery, as her
young pulse throbbed and her weak
bauds battled in the cause of right
aud justice, aud John Brown, Jim
Lane, Geary, Sumner, aud tho erring
brothers across the border, with their
works right and wrong, floated be
fore our mental vision as a myth, as
we looked at the present prosperity
aud solidity of her cities and thought
of her railroads, her railroad centers
and the fulness to repletion of her
From Kansas City with its 100,000
inhabitants and large manufacturing
interests our route to St. Louis was
through a farming country replete in
beauty and scenery, which in places
on the river was grand and superb,
and for farming purposes generally it
must excel. Fall wheat appears to be
the largest money crop of all farmers
along our route as indicated by the
almost continuous billowy ocean of
waving green that continued to greet
the eye, about one-third of which was
poor, the balance indicating a good
and profitable harvest. Large apple
orchards clothed in bloom, healthy
and fine, assured U3 that its many
varieties are largely at home here,
while the peach trees as seen by ub
were nearly all in a damaged condi
tion. Scarcely any of the corn ground
all along to St. Louis was plowed and
only here and there a few fields
planted, with but two small fields
with spikelets showing above the
ground. The green sterna of the first
small patch of potatoes were seen in
the' suburbs of the beautiful city of
WarrenBburg, while Sedalia and Jef
ferson City gladdened the eye with
the first roses in bloom. The pros
perity of all this portion of our
glorious country needs no comment
from me, as its buildings and sur
roundings in city, village and country
abundantly prove that fact.
We steamed into St. Louis shortly
before sundown and were almost lost
in amazement at the immense number
of people, "in seeming chaos out of
which order came," steaming in and
out of this central city of our great
republic and to every imaginable
point of the compass.
We visited the gentlemantly gen
eral ticket agent of the St. L. I. M. &
S. R. R., showed our coupon ticket,
and also letters of introduction, ex
pressed our wishes, which with cour
tesy were kindly granted, and left the
office with a special lay-over permit
added, to visit all places as per our
request, and with a kind invitation to
call on him on our return.
At 8 :30 p. m. we left this city of
cities, as regards location, and in
darkness rolled smoothly towards
that portion of Arkansas for which
our journey was undertaken.
Sunrise found us over the borders
of Missouri, and until we reached
Newport but little of the land was
cultivated, the railroad passing thro'
a new country grand in its timber
resources and sufficiently rolling to
be perfectly healthful, while baci
from this great artery of travel on
either side is ah old settled country
with its farms and villages. We
crossed White river whose limpid
waters by the old settler are said to
be so pure, that he who once drinks
loses all relish for any other. As we
steam along, the country becomes
more rolling but somewhat poorer,
the strawberry gardens are crimson
with fruit, peaches are two-thirds
grown, honeysuckles, roses, lilies, etc.
perfume the air with a delicious fra
grance, all trees, fruit and forest, have
made nearly half their season's
growth, and at 10:30 Beebe, the
beauty, almost buried in its forest of
fruits and flowers, loomed in view,
and as we stepped on to the platform
and were wearily gazing at a magnifi
cent magnolia, whose creamy buds
were swelling for an early bloom, the
venerable and urbane Dr. J. M. Gist,
an old resident, kindly took us by the
hand, and for us, dear Journal, for a L
day or two at least, it will be rest.

The following is taken from a re
ceut number of the Prairie Farmer.
H. M. Winalow of this city is well
acquainted with the gentlemen re
ferred to, their farm and manner of
doing business, and says that the
statemeutB made are true. He adds
that the Browns recently sold fat
yearling steers in Chicago, realizing
$40 a head. There is no doubt but
thoroughbred stock will mature
about a year earlier than scrubs, aud
that all pay best by being kept fat
from the time they come until they
are ready for the block. But here is
what the Browns are doing with
"The method of handling cattle on
the celebrated blue-grass larm of J.
N. Brown's sons in Sangamon county,
III., is something out ot the common
order of doiug thiugs iu the West.
These gentlemen own about 3,000
acres of a&.fiue land as there is iu this
fertile State. It lies iu the heart of
the great corn belt yet they do not
plant an acre of corn to feed to their
1,000 head of cattle. Indeed they do
not feed the article except in case of a
protracted severe storm. They al
ways purchase a small amount for
such a contingency. Their cattle
live, thrive, aud grow fat upon blue
grass alone. Their pastures are old
and each year adds to the quantity
and value of the grass crop. They
mow but little bay, less than fifty
acres per year. They say that one
hundred acres of grass will furnish as
much fattening food as sixty-six acres
of corn. The cost of growing the
corn makes its feeding unprofitable
as compared with pasturage. They,
buy young animals and fatten them
upon the blue-grass, putting on some
300 pounds of fine beef between April
and July, and they sell them when
weighing from 1,400 to 1,500 pounds,
realizing the very highest market
prices. Of course they purchase good
grade Short-horn stock, as these alone
will ripen at as early an age as they
wish to have them."
