A great many good things have been
said about the hospitable treatment our
citizens gave the delegates to the recent
encampment. Among others we notice
the following signed "Old Soger," in the
last Albion Argus:
I would like to let the people of
Boone county know just what kind of
a reception the delegates of the G. A. B.
and W. R C. received at the hands of
the citizens of Columbus. When we
arrived at Columbus there was a recep
tion committee to look after the mem-
Ibers of the W. B. CL, and escort them to
i - ? x m ?i? rm u
piaces in private famines, xaa oia com
rades that had their wives with them
lost them, and for two days could not
I remember of an instance of one old
comrade coming to me with tears in his
eyes, saying that he could not find his
wife. The two first letters of his tame
is W. B. Daniels. I tried to cons' .e the
poor old chap and finally succeeded and
got him quieted. Next came another
poor old gray-headed comrade lament
ing about his wife. This was the noted
brick maker; I believe bis name is E. T.
Farmer. I told the poor old fellows
that their wives must certainly be all
right or they would be around kicking.
But never a kick came. They were
treated with all the hospitality that' the
city could afford. I did not see my wife
for two days either, but I kept my eyes
open and after a while I saw her but I
did not let the other old cliaps know
that I was looking after my wife, too.
Nevertheless, boys, we were just a little
afraid that those Columbus fellows had
beaten us out of our wives, wasn't we.
I for one, can say that the citizens of
Columbus did all in their power to make
it agreeable. The mayor of the city, in
his address of welcome, turned over the
city to the G. A. B. and the W. R. C.
The delegates of Xit-Carson post,
of Albion, in company with the Peters
burg delegates, stopped at the Lindell

our stay agreeable. He let us down for

will have .ptal acreage of about thirty
Perhaps s few words on the prepara
tion of the soil may be in order at this
time. We quote from the Tobacco
"In the selection of the soil for beds,
choose prslscably -olay ground mixed
with black Joaaa. Let the beds be five
feet wide and run -lengthwise east' and
west Turn up ihe ground shallow
not over bix inches, elevating the soil
three to four inches. Cover the surface
of the bed with chicken manure. Bake
when ready to sow, and cover with rot
ten wood and loam, gathered from about
a decayed log in the forest, to a depth of
about three-fourths of an inch Take
dry seed and mix with dry leached ashes
and sow on a still day. Do not mix
with ashes until ready to sow. Tramp
with a board or pat with a broad shovel.
Sprinkle the bed with water and draw
the canvas tight over a bar across the
center lengthwise, to turn.. showers. Keep
the surface of the bed constantly moist
carlossness in this direction will be
fatal. Bemove the canvas every day
for about twelve days before planting,
keeping it off between the hours of 9
o'clock a. m. and 3 o'clock p. m., to
harden the plants.
The annoyance to so many farmers
every year in the loss of plants that
were in the beds exposed to frost is a
lesson to be heeded. Low ground is
more apt to be wets and freeze. On the
selection of a proper locality for a plant
bed and its preparation; largely depends
the timely supply of strong, healthy
plants, without which it is impossible to
raise a crop of fine grade. The planter,
tnereiore, cannot be too careful in se
curing a sheltered spot, neither too wet
nor too dry, as rich naturally as can be
found, and located so as to possess dif
ferent degrees of moisture."
Those who claim to know, say that
Nebraska soil is' well adapted to tho
growth of tobacco, and the long dry falls
which wo have here are also very desir
able in the handling and curing of the
plant. We predict that in a few years
fwill be one of the chief products, and
that we shall soon be ranked with the
tobacco growing states.
The Journal will from time to time,
as the season advances, publish articles
treating on the cultivation, harvesting,
curing and general handling of tobacco.

Martin Heintz was born in Prussia, came to
America in 1851, settling at Chester, HL; came to
Columbus in 1833, where he has resided till his
decease. He was eccentric in his habits, and
utterances, never having- married. He was so
peculiar in his intercourse with his neighbors,
blunt and outspoken, that ho Often provoked
harsh criticism, but to those who had his confi
dence, he was a friend. It is known to the
writer that he often loaned money to the needy,
never thinking to take a note or obligation, and
under his rough exterior wasIud the "milk of
human kindness." His twin brother Chris, who
died Feb. tth last seemed to often depress him,
so that he cared no longer to live. Raised under
tho teachings of the German Lutheran church,
whatever the cause of estrangement, U tenets
gavejiinihopeas he neared tho tomb, although
denied a burial by its ministry. "I detect more
good than evil iu humanity." n.
