Farmers generally are inquiring
for corn huskers. No excuse for
idleness on the part of any able-bodied
man. In these bard times there
should be no drones in the hive, but
upon the shoulders of every man
should fall a proportionate share of
the burden. Consumers who are not
producers are more than ever a pest
in these times.
vff'ffe notice that a correspondent
oi.tae JNortn uena iau nas a
tila on the hog disease which is in
festing the state. Ho says: "It
seems that juBt so far as hogs were
kept this year on the corn raised last
year and not allowed to run out they
die, but where hogs. were herded, in
part or all, they bave thus far kept
well and seem healthy."
In the straggle for financial place
between professions requiring culti
vated brains and those demanding
skilled muscles, muscle seems to have
the edge. The earnings of a cham

Friday evening laat, while the
janitor at the Opera House was

lier badly wrecked. It may be con
sidered fortunate that the accident
happened before the audience began
to congregate, else the result might
have been mnch more serious.

Snow all around us; but at the

We hear of a species of fraud
that was being attempted here last
week upon some of our citizens. A
smooth-spoken fellow was endeavor
ing to get subscribers to a circulating
library upon the following basis:
The subscriber to pay one dollar cash
in band, for the perpetual use of Har
per's Library, all tho numbers pub
lished and yet to be published (one
every week;) no further assessment
or expense of any kind, for rent or
pay for librarian, &c. One gentle
man approached gave tho solicitor a
piece of bis mind, and we presume he
has gone to greener pastures.
There seems to be an almost un
precedented mortality amoug cattle at
this time, for the cause of which there
seems to be no satisfactory explana
tion. A post mortem examination of
those which recently died from the
herd of C E. Morse would seem to
indicate that the theory of death be
ing caused by corn stalks or other
dry feed was not sustained by tho
facts disclosed as they showed no evi
dence of the impacted mass in the
stomach usual in such cases. And yet
it is reported that among those herds
which have not fed in the stalk fields
there have been no deaths, so that
from that source, whatever the cause,
would tieem to come the trouble.
The Lisle-Shilob Combination at
the Opera House Ia6t Friday night
drew a small house. An attraction
at the skating riuk probably had
something to do with the thin attend
ance, and on Saturday night the in
clemency of the weather is a sufficient
explanation of no turn out, in conse
quence of which there was no enter
tainment. We cannot truthfully say
that the combination is a very strong
one, neither is it particularly weak,
and so are willing to concede to it as
a whole the position of the golden
mean in the field of dramatic talent.
The comedy cast was excellent, and
the military display, particularly the
bivouac scene was a very good show
Wednesday night last Julius Ras
museen fulfilled the conditions of his
wager with Judge Higgins by deliv
ering upon a wheelbarrow at the res
idence of the latter the four hundred
weight of flour staked on the result of
the election in New York. The con
ditions of the wager called for mar
tial music to lead the procession, and
it was there. Altogether the sight
was a novel one, and the procession
drew a regular circus parade throng,
the "kids" fairly making "Rome
howl" with their shouts of delight.
Julius was very properly dignified in
his part of the performance, and to
his solemn countenance and bowed
head, as he marched along is probably
due the fact that the affair would
keep reminding oue unpleasantly of
some poor unfortunate in the hands
of a mob.
The Platte county Teachers As
