Lord Palmerstov ouce remarked
that the drawbacks and objections to

this may be, and whether there is
ground for immediate concern, it is a
dictate of prudence for American
cities, town and villages to thor
oughly cleanse their borders of all
foul impurities that tend to breed
corruption of the atmosphere and of
the waters. The utmost care and
watchfulness regardiug pure air and
water, wholesome, ripe food, and

It is a wise rule always to hope for

Judge Solon Thatches, of Kansas,
a member of the commission appoint
ed to visit Mexico and South America
in the interest of trade between those
countries and the United States,
arrived in Washington the other day
from Liverpool and called upon the
secretary of state. The secretary of
the commission, Mr. Curtis, is expect
ed to arrive in a short time. In the
course of Judge Thatcher's conversa
tion he stated that in every country
they visited, except perhaps Chili,
they found the authorities and people
desirous of strengthening their rela
tions with the United States. They
said: "We look upon the United
States as our mother country, but
have received no attention from her.
Foreign powers have sent commis
sioners to visit us and have endeav
ored to strengthen the feeling between
themselves and our country. This
visit of yours is the first intimation
we have bad that the United States
takes an interest in us." Judge
Thatcher added that all the countries
visited were in favor of a convention
of the North aud South American
countries to consult on commercial
and finaucial interests, the United
States to take initiative steps and
uame the topics.
The Omaba Republican of August
8th contains a lengthy editorial touch
ing the libel suit of its editor, Mr.
Nye, against James Creightou, be
cause of what be had said in regard to
the Republican being an organ of the
Union Pacific R. R. Co. We rather
like the spirit of the article, it seems
candid and fair, and Mr. Nye's declar
ations as to freedom from bias may be
regarded by him as the exact truth.
The Journal wishes to say to him, in
all personal kindness, that the best
way for him to get rid of the odium
(which he evidently thinks attaches
to him in the minds of the people, as
a railroad organist) is to invariably,
unceasingly, unflinchingly advocate
the cause of the people as against the
exactions of railroad and other corpo
rations. Throw yourself upon the
side of the people in such a way that
he who runs may read that the Re
publican is a hammer in the hand of
a mental giant to knock down the
strongholds of the people's oppres
sors. In such case it would be an un
necessary waste of time to sue Jim
Creighton or anybody else for what
is now charged as libelous talk.
The Papillion Times remarks that
"if John M. Thurston had not been a
railroad attorney he would have rep
resented Nebraska in the United
States Senate before this." Railroad
companies are in the habit of in
ducing the bright young men who
start out in their career to advocate
the people's interests, to change their
pace, and work for something sub
stantial. Thurston is one of the
brightest men in the west, so far as
the ability of speech-making goes,
and if to this was added rock-rooted
fidelity to public interests, John M.
would hold a very high place in
people's regard.' But they know
where Thurston's interests are, and
are not pleased wheu it is assumed
that he would represent them in any
case of contest with railroad com
panies. A scandal occurred the other day
at Rochester, N. Y. A Hungarian
woman appeared in the city and
claimed that she was the wife of Ed
ward H. Makk, EL. D., editor of the
Rochester Volksblatt, a man of liter
ary attainments and a fine linguist,
who steads high in journalistic and
German society. He publishes a card
asking that judgment be suspended
till the woman shall bring an action
in the courts, when he will show the
falsity of her claims. He denounces
the woman as a blackmailer.

Mrs. James Shepard of his camp was
overwhelmed by the water, and with
her little girl in her arms attempted
to get up in a tree. It was too
much, and the child was torn from
the courageous mothers grasp by tne
mad rush of the waters. A young
roan was trying to make his way out
with her other child, a little boy, but
was unsuccessful, and the child was
swept away., A man by the name of

Jewell is known to have a sister in
Kansas City, and a cousn in St.
Louis, Mo.
In all, four persons were drowned.
Three were fonnd next day, and
buried, but the little boy of Shepard's
was not found till Tuesday morning.
The two men were buried in the
Lone Tree valley and the two chil
dren at Bordeaux. It is a sad blow
to Mr. and Mrs. Shepard.

When the liquor has been poored out

investigation and seizure.

In the di .tiu.'iit of Botany and
Horticulture a s'udy has been made
of the premature dropping of the
plums, to which attention has fre
quently been called. Two causes
have been found, as follows :
1st. Many of the plums were
pierced when young by an insect
known as the Plum Gouger (Anthen
omus prunicida') which laid one or
more eggs. These hatched into little
grubs, which may now be found in
the stone eating the kerdel. In a
short time the grubs will hatch into
email browu beetles. These will lay
eggs in the young plums next spring,
and so continue the mischief. The
remedy suggested is to aljow the pigs
to eat up all the infested fruit. Keep
pigs in your plum orchard.
2d. The other disease ot the plum
is due to a parasite fungus which
causes the tissues of the fruit to rot,
and finally to dry up into a black
mouldy mass. Upon examining
such plums uuder the microscope a
fungus was found to which the name
of Oidium fructiyenvm has been giv
en. We may for the present call it
the plum-rot fungus. It grows
through the tissues of the plum, and
produces myriads of rpores. The lat
ter are blown upon other plums, and
germipating there produce more rot,
and so on. The disease is therefore
highly in'cctidiH. mid the presence of
oue rotting plum may become the
cause of the destruction of the greater
part of the crop of a tree. The early
removal of all diseased plums (now of
course too late for this year) is the
only practicable remedy. As the
fungus germinates more quickly upon
injured spots, i frequently accom
panies the Plum Gouger mentioned
I shall be glad to bear from corres
pondents as to these diseases.

Dear Journal : Many of the read
ers of your valuable paper may not
hare heard of this locality of hill and
vale, Twill endeavor to inform them
of this part of the country we lire in
this section that Boss Walker had
the audacity to name hard scrabble
flatts, io itg early days when the set
tlers were somewhat behind and the
land not fully tested as to its richness.
This modern Eden lies between the
Looking Glass and Shell Creek in
Township 20, Range 3 and 4 west of
the sixth principal meridian. It is
settling up rapidly with the hardy
sons of toil who will not leave a stone
unturned iu their efforts to make this
once desert and birthplace of the
coyote, bloom. Mr. Joseph Schroder,
one of the first settlers here, is a host
in himself in beautifying the side
hills with grape vines and all kinds
of shrubbery. Joe. was born a flor
ist; be also imported a few choice
stands of Italian bees ; he says as soon
as he gets around to it he will treat
his Irish neighbors on Shell Creek to
both wine and honey. Just imagine
how the Pats will smack their lips as
they swallow down Joe's, iadustry.
Last year we had a new Importation
in the person of the Hon. James Ha
mos of Colfax, aud also John Shana
han of Platte Center, two staunch
husbandmen who tore up more virgin
soil this season than was uncovered
at the great battle of Sbiloh and his
excellency James Butler's palatial res
idence is situate on a beautiful north
ern slope overlooking the flats and
has a fine view of Schroder's vine
yard. Mr. Butler's field of buckwheat
affords a fine range for Joseph's bees.
Joe. says when they come home at
intervals from their tour of inspection
they seem scarcely able to light at
ease, they so overload themselves
with the nectar they steal from Jim's.
