Willard Chapin writes from Sheri
dan county to a friend that on the 7th of
August they had a frost which de
stroyed all that the hail 6torm of a week
before had left, which was literally
nothing. The hail fell very, thick and
fast and many of the stones were as
large as hen's eggs. Twenty miles west
of Mr. Chapin's the storm was so severe
that the ribs of cattle on the range were
broken by the hail stones, and potatoes
in the ground were so beaten and
bruised as to be worthless.
At a special meeting of the board of
trade last Wednesday evening W. F.
Griffith of Omaha endeavored to secure
the adoption of a petition by the board
asking the state board of transportion
to rescind their order for fifteen percent
reduction of freight rates by the rail
roads. Mr. G. claimed to be acting in
the general interests of Nebraska, and
that the rate was so low that it would
effectually retard the further building of
roads in this state. L. Weaver moved
that no action be taken on the subject
by this meeting. J. E. North thought
that the sentiment of those present
not represent that of the shippers of the
city. The motion was carried unani
mously. If there had been a full meet
ing of the board there might have been
considerable music. Mr. Griffith is a
smooth talker, and seems well informed,
but we imagine that there are some
questions touching his mission that
would have been difficult for him to an
swer with entire satisfaction.

A Canning Factory.
Tho Journal can mention twenty men
within fivo miles of its sanctum, all of
whom havo large tracts of land, are good
business men and who could safely
manage a 810,000 canning factory. Why
not, then, organize a company to get
ready for business next year? It will at
onco treble the rental of your land and
enhance tho selling price, besides bring
ing you a handsome per cent on the
money yon may invest. There are sev
eral such institutions in Nebraska and
they all pay. The entire product can be
contracted beforehand. What's tho
