evening on his way to Lincoln. He is as
wide-awake as ever on all public matters,
and we think it one of the bad things of
the late election that he was not
selected as a member of the coining Ne

last session was a shining honor to him
and his constituents.

Rob't S. Clark, a former citizen and
telegraph operator of this county, who
was sentenced to the penitentiary
eighteen months ago, on a sentence of
three years for embezzlement of his em
ployer's money at North Bend, was par
doned Saturday last by Gov. Thayer,
and at Sunday noon, in the garb of a
citizen, walked out of the 'pen." For
the past seven months he had been a
clerk in the warden's office, says the
Bee's Lincoln correspondent. He owes
his release, doubtless, to the untiring
persistence of his mother in his behalf.
Rob was always a very talented young
man. and it is to be hoped his brilliant
abilities will be turned toward proper,
Thursday last about twenty -five
sheriffs held a coBTention in th' city
and organized for the purpose of t iting
in an effective way to urge their .laims
before the legislature. Doubtless there
are many things that the sheriffs would
like to see changed, and a committee
consisting of Caldwell, Williams, Wil
son, Costello, Adams, McClay, Harri
raan. Trognitz, Mallon and Baker, was
appointed to look after the matter. The
next meeting is to be held at Kearney,
second Tuesday in May next.

O. L Prindle of Max, Dundy county,
was in the city Saturday and Sunday,
the guest of John Tannahill, a comrade
of the G. A. R. He says that in his
township of one hundred families, there
are only four independent in circum
stances. The provisions on hand will
last about two weeks. He says there
was not 500 bushels of corn raised in
Dundy county this season. Ho was
traveling on a B. & M. pass, good till
New Year's, started from home without
any money, and now had none, but
wished to reach as many places as he
could before his transportation ran out.

The publishers of the Homesterd,
the weekly twenty-four page agricultur
al paper of Des Moines, Ll, edited by a
practical farmer, inform us that they
will send their paper from now until the
first of next January, free of charge, to
every farmer in this county not already
a subscriber, who will send his name
and address, plainly written on a postal
card, to the Homestead Co., Des Moines,
la. The copies will be absolutely free,
and will be sent to any farmer to enable
him to judge for himself of the merits of
the Homestead as a paper devoted to his
special interests. On the first of Jan
uary the paper will be discontinued un
less subscribed for in due form. 30-4t
The editor of the Iowa Homestead
is personally known to many of our
readers, and into the publication over
which he presides he has the faculty of
getting more of practical worth to the
square inch of white paper, than any
similar publication we know of. Life is
too short, and the demands of our west
ern farm life are too many and urgent to
waste time reading eastern farm period
icals mainly taken up with something
appropriate only to their own locality.
See the proposition elsewhere of the
Homestead Co., and if you don't wish
to bother sending for their paper, call at
this office, and we will take your sub
scription, along with that of The Jour
nal, both papers, when paid one year in
advance, for $2.75. tf
Santa Clans was in town Saturday,
and was altogether the most active indi
vidual to be seen, on the streets and in
the stores. He seemed to be a little
more cautious than is his usual wont,
and would look around quite a while
before concluding what to buy, but the
children who read this paragraph may
be sure that the old gentleman wore his
proverbial smile all the time, and occa
sionally would laugh 60 heartily that
you would think, surely he'll split his
sides, but then there's no danger of
that he's got used to it. When you
come to think of it, it does seem strange
that he can be in so many places all at
once, be on such excellent good terms
with everybody and himself, and find
money enough to furnish all these
trinkets, dolls, books, etc for everybody.
Long live good Santa Clans.
All society people who enjoy good
opera should hail the coming of the
McMillan Comic Opera of excellent
artists with delight, and make it the so
cial event of the season, as it is certainly
the best comic opera company ever in
the west. The company is composed of
such artists as Clemont St, Martin, an
eminent comedian of excellent ability
as both singer and comedian, and consid
ered the finest comic opera comedian
on the road without exception. H. C.
Hartley, a fine lyric tenor of comic opera
fame; J. B. Hamilton, an excellent bari
tone. Miss May Morgan, the pretty
blonde and soprano of the company and
soubrette with a charming, sweet voice
of fine quality; Miss Mary Weaver, a
handsome brunette, with a fine mezzo
soprano voice; Miss Hartley, the con
tralto, who has a rich, deep voice of rare
quality and a fine actress; Miss Lillie
White", Miss Good Dyer and others, all
cultured artists and musicians, making
one of the strongest and most complete
comic opera companies on the road.
Ed Getsinger, well known in Schuy
ler as having done considerable work in
the life insurance business, was in the
city yesterday. Mr. Getsinger has 3ome
thing on the string now that, when ope
rations are all completed, will place him
along side such inventors as Edison and
BelL The invention promises to take
the place of electricity in serving as
motor power to run machinery, light
lamps, house bells, eta, the power being
generated by magnetism, not electricity,
between the mineral properties contain
ed in a certain stone brought from
Michigan and salt and water. It is a
simple contrivance and will bejrery
cheap. Mr. Getsinger has several' pat
ents and has already gone far enough to
insure him a fortune but- he proposes to
carry his investigation far enough to
run all kinds of large machinery when
it will be worth millions to him. The
Sun wishes him success and hopes that
Schuyler may enjoy, in toe near future,
some of the benefits to be derived from
his invention. Mr. Getsinger's head
quarters are in Chicago where he will
return in a day or two and organize a
6tock company to push his patents.

The Schuyler Sun's enterprising
correspondent Mud Mechanic," writes
from Octavia, as follows:
In making a well this last summer I
dug into a prairie dog's well. I have
often heard old plainsmen say that
prairie dogs always had one well in each
of their towns, but the question was if
it was deep how would they go at it.
There is but one way and that is to take
the dirt out on top to get rid of it This
well was not perpendicular but was made
at an angle of about forty-five degrees.
From the top of the water on down it
was abont thirteen inches in diameter
and as slick and smooth and round as a
school ma'am. It was about thirty -feet
deep from the top. Just how deep 'the
little creatures dig is no telling. No
doubt they can dig as deep as I can.
Instinct tells them they were to locate
where they could get water.
Speaking of water reminds me of an
other fact that I have discovered and
that is that there is as yet no criterion
to go by in getting water that is very
deep. I have been watching very close
ly all the deep tubular wells, and as
water is very hard to get there is quite a
good many tubular wells being made.
Water is harder to get now than it has
been in twenty years. I am quite store
of one thing. If you get water in your
town at the same depth that we get
water here on the bluffs you will get a
flowing well. The reason why I think so
is just this. On the highest land we
have here it is three hundred and five
feet deep to the water with one hundred
and seventy-five feet of water, and this
water all comes from the bottom. The
waterworks wells in David City are two
hundred and eighty-five deep. I have
never taken the trouble to find out but
I don't think that the high hills here are
more than a hundred feet above the
Platte river. But then as I have said
Ihere is no criterion to go by, for there
is a well in this county near the foot of
the hill that is three hundred feet deep
without a drop of water.
