James Bell of David City is becom
ing famous in this neck o? woods for his
flax bufiinesB. He has fine machinery
for cleaning the seed, and this has given
his establishment a wide reputation.
From July 30th to August 13th he
paid out for fiax seed $2&925. Mon
day of last week he commenced filling an
order for 50.000 bushels of seed, to be
sent east. Thin will require 100 cars and
make four heavy train loads cf seed. So
we gather from the Tribune.
Com hi Nebraska this year will be
an extra good crop,, if we do not have an
early friTFing frost. There never was a
better stand, and the corn land was nev
er cleaner, owing to the dry weather of
early spring and the plowing under, at
the start, of the weeds. Oats is a fair
crop, flax is good and more of is raised
each. year, as farmers have found
that they can at least realize expenses
on breaking of new land. Wheat holds
its own with the average years. Potatoes,
for some reason not generally known,
are extra good.

Genoa looms up from the cars and
presents a very fine appearance indeed.
A mental picture of the site nineteen
years ago could not be pushed aside,
and the contrast between that and this
is deep and wide. Then, the place was
reached from here after a half-day's
travel by wagon; now the swift-flyihg-trahx

life, an aversion to work on the part of
the men and a desire to roam, on the one
hand, and on the other the importunities
of the teachers, who worked bravely and
determinedly amid the discouraging sur
roundings to lead the - benighted

Of course, the first place visited by us
was Will Winterbotham's store, and we
are indebted to Will for a drive around
town and for one of the most agreeable
hours of enjoyment in a long time.
While stopping at his store we noticed
that while he has both eyes open to his
own individual affaire and is doing a
thriving business, he is very enthusi
astic over the welfare of the community,
and is helping to secure waterworks for
the town, a petition numerously signed,
which he presented, beingthe first move.
At the top of the bluff in the rear of the
town it is proposed to sink wells and fill
reservoirs for the purpose of supplying
water for the town. One of these they
already have, thirty-seven feet in diam
eter and 10 feet deep. They propose
with f 1,000 of the $000 talked of, to go
down into the earth 1.000 feet hoping to
find coal or something else valuable, and
perhaps artesian water. They are much
encouraged in this hope by the fact that
Wheeler county has an abundance of
artesian wells. Genoa cannot make a
better investment of money than in
these waterworks. They are the great
est inducement a community can offer
far the putting up of fine residences and
business budings, and always justify
this class of improvements because they
offer the best means for fighting fire and
also providing good water for house
hold and mechanical use.
Among old friends and acquaintances
at the Indian school are Prof. W. B.
BackuH and his estimable wife and help
meet, Ole Oleson. the carpenter, and
Edwin Hoare, the farmer, and the work
of all of them, we learn, is ft rst-clasH.
One man, a practical fanner,, said that,
although it was late along in the season
when Mr. Hoare tookchargeof the farm.
the crops are in good shape.
Mr. Backus is away north endeavoring
to secure from the tribes some sixty more

disaster. He first gave some incidents
of his trip as far as Jbhaatown. Speak
ing of that now unhappy place he said
that the site on which, it was located
was grandly beautiful, nestled among
mountains. He described,, fix detafl. the
appearance. of the town before the flood.
its streets, magnificent places of busi
ness and manufacture, its great churches,
et .dwelling upon the fact that it was
uie greatest mannnuMnnng ana com
mercial town of all . the mrHrntaf- region
and that there was so much of business
that the proprietors of the mill thought
they must be kept going day and night,
and every day it was a thronging hive
of humanity. What he related as de
scriptive of the disaster was mainly the
unpaa kmed language of those he inter
viewed while there. He talked with, the
lady who had, one after another, placed
her seven children on floating- Umbers
and with prayers for their safety,, sent
them adrift on the flood, doing the best
she knew, and she never saw them
again. The house in which r was,
broke away and she managed to get
upon the roof, floated eighteen miles
and was saved. He spoke of friends of
Mr.Lohr who perished, and saw V .
Devlin. Dr. Evans's sister, who gave a
very touching account of the loss of her
young daughter and of Mrs. Dr. Wilson
(her sister), also of Dr. Wilson; of a gen

business property of great value and
also his residence, an swept away by the
flood; of an aged physician. 75 years old,
who lost the earnings of a life-time, and
yet went out ou foot to minister to the
wants of the afflicted. Mr. Powers's de-
neati on of the fearful flood, its heart
rending incidents as given him by sur
vivors was so impassioned that there
was scarcely a dry eve in the audience.
He said that the thousandth part of the
story could not be told it absolutely
beggared description. He says that
Johnstown is in complete ruins and he
does not think it wiU ever regain its
prestige. Of an the people swept away,
the bodies of 7,002 have been recovered
from the debris. The flies are terrible;
hotels are merely boards nailed up
loosely, and the tables at which guests
stand and eat are made of rude boards,
and flies are everywhere. A fall hour
was taken up in intense and rapid and

bound for Denver, CoL, arriving there in
