P. H. Kelley and his mother, Mrs.

A postal received by W. T. Allen
from Mrs. Allen, and dated at Trinidad,
Colorado, Nov. -tth, says that her party
aro at that place awaiting their wreck to
bo cleared away; that their train ran into
an open switch tho night before, about
two miles northeast of Trinidad, wrecked
the engino and all tho cars except tho
forward car and the sleeper in which
they were. It happened about 8 o'clock.
Her party were unhurt.
Next to one of the windows on tho
east side of the county jail is a hole big
enough for a man to crawl out of, but
when one of the inmates of tho jail at
tempted Monday night to get through
ho was startled by a pistol shot from
Deputy Sheriff Campbell that induced
him to" change his mind. The breach in
tho wall is still there, and the three men,
imprisoned on a charge of grand larceny,
are now confined in the cage.
M. M. Anderson, a blacksmith of
Clarks, Nebraska, has disappeared, and
his relatives think there is a possibility
of foul play. He had gone to Omaho,
purchasedsome supplies, and Binco that
time no traco of him has been found.
Ho had considerable money on his per
son. He had been until a year ago an
inmate of an insano asylum at Lincoln,
his mental derangement being due to
excess in drinking. Whether he is off
again is not known.
Between Saturday evening and Mon
day morning some one tried to set fire to
a small building in the rear of Justico
Hudson's office on Olive street. Paper,
shingles, boards and coal had been used,
and the siding of tho building was
scorched a foot and a half up from the
ground. It is likely that tho strong
wind swirling around put out the blaze,
but the devilish spirit that prompted the
deed is strong evidence that the mille
nium has not yet arrived.

A. L. Bixby of the Lincoln Journal
was in the city Tuesday to vote. By the

last week upon Col. Bixby's present

an independent-, he was writing for the
Lincoln Journal some very readable re
publican doctrine. It is our guess that
the Col. was really never anything elee
but a republican, however plausible he

A traveling man by the name of
Kipling goes upon record as favoring
telepathy, telegraphy being too costly,
and the mail too slow. Although neith
er himself or wife is a spiritualist, ho
claims that every evening, when away
from home, ct 10 o'clock, ho goes to his
room at the hotel, turns out tho light,
closes his eyes, concentrates his thoughts
upon home, and especially upon his wife,
and "presto! I occupy the easy chair in
our little sitting-room directly in front
of her and a perfectly intelligible con
versation ensues between us, although
not a word is spoken." He says they
have had this mental telegraphy in oper
ation for two years past, and the service
is constantly growing better and moro
satisfactory; that they havo verified its
accuracy a thousand times and rely upon
it as implicitly as others do on tho writ
ten page. Wo call the attention of the
numerous traveling men of this city to
this new and better way, believing that
they will find, in the very thought of it,
a benefit well worth a thousand times
the cost of the practice ag a daily habit.
The Jocbxax, bespeaks a full account of
the first messages thus communicated
"not necessarily for "publication," but in
the interest of scientific investigation.
A man in tho Nishnabotna valley,
Iowa, has made a record of a corn crop,
grown and ripened in eighty days from
tho time tho seed was put into tho
ground. Tho yield of corn will bo seventy-five
to one hundred bushels per acre.
The ground upon which the corn now
stands was covered with water until
June 10. From a part of it tho water
did not recede until Juno 15. So says an
exchange. There is no doubt but Ne
braska land can produce just as abund
antly as that of Iowa, to say tho least,
and tho time has fully come when atten
tion given to better methods of cultiva
tion will pay richly. It is wonderful
what just a few years has doue in Platte
county. There is very little raw prairio
any moro. That kind of land don't pay.
Nearly all has been plowed. Large
farms aro being divided up into small
ones, anu naturally follow hotter im
provements and moro of them; greater
variety in farm products; an extension
or tho year's pasturage by tamo grass
and rye; tlio raising of winter wheat;
better fencing and moro of it: improve
ment everywhere and in all things. This
is a scientific f.ge, and naturally tho
greatest interest we Lave, agriculture, is
"in tho Bwim."
The republican meeting Wednesday
evening of last week in tho Opera House
was decidedly tho best attended of any
hero during the campaign, excepting tho
Uoint debato at tho Fair grounds. Of
course, though only a weoi: ago. the
campaign is a ro?.iiniscence, so full and
so rapid is tho public life of thiB genera
tion that only the present can absorb
full attention. Judge Norris of Ponca
and Hon. George D. Meiklejohn of Ful
lerton wero tho speakers. J. N. Healer
of the central coinmitteo introduced
them to tho audience. Tho speakers
wero well roccivod by the largo crowd
present, many of whom wero democrats,
with somo independents; ths evident
fairness of .Tndgo Norris's presentation
of the tariff was very gratifying to all
who listened, and Mr. Meiklejohn's
speech undoubtedly gained him votes
among tho opposition.
The name of Mr. Price, tho demo
cratic candidate for float representative,
was not placed on the ticket in Nance
county, becauso tho certificate of nomi
nation was not received there in time.
Mr. Price was not pleased with this,
thinking that there w.is a trick about it
somewhere. It is ono of thoso acciden
tal things, Mr. Price, that is liable to
happen even with such perfect political
parties as the republican, to say nothing
of tho democratic. When nccidont or
carelessness or misadventure aro suffi
cient to explain discrepancies, it is best
to let it go so. Politics, so far as per
sons go, anyhow, is only as a'gamo of
checkers. You make your move, tho
other fellow his and so on until the end,
but it really is too bad that you didn't
got a -chance to play tho gamo on the
other half of tho board.
Wo are informed of the publication
of a novelty in the book line which is
certain of an enormous sale. This book
is "(Jlimpses of the World. A Portfolio
of Photographs" prepared under tho
supervision of the great traveler and lec
turerJohn L. Stoddard. Jt contains
photographic views of famous scenes and
places in all parts of tho world. Every
view is fully described. As an educsitor
it is invaluable. It contains 550 pages,
and nearly 275 views, and is sold by sub
scription at popular prices. Tho 11. S.

Saturday last there was a little boy
probably seven years old, at the Union
Pacific depot, traveling alono. He had a
first-class ticket, and had been supplied
with S12.50 in money for expenses and
sleeping-car ticket. Ho couldn't speak
English. On his back, under his big
coat collar was a lablo sewed to his little
coat, on which was written: "Walter
Marks, going to my papa, Frank Marks,
Butte, Montana." Ho was from Sprink
post-office, South Dakota. He didn't
want to leave the conductor that brought
him, and, when we saw him last, he was
comfortably seated in the agent's office
and watching tho people come and go
with evident curiosity.
Tho prices of farm products iu the
line ot butter, eggs and potatoes were
never better. It is now a case whero tho
consumer has to pay "the tax.' And if
it were not for the consumer there would
be no prico. Before grasshopper days
thero was no demand nor market for this
farm stuff nor any other produce. The
great complaint was, "Too far from mar
ket nothing will ever be established on
these" prairie3 on acconnt of tho lack of
fuel." Bnt it is a euro thing now tho
era of those low prices here has gono to
return no more. Neither will we havo
occasion to burn corn again. All is
working itself out right. Schuyler Sun.
Thomas Thomazin, a well-known
citizen of this connty. died Monday at
his home. Ho dropped dead whilo driv
ing cattle, and his death was duo proba
bly to heart-failure. Mr. Thomazin was
born in England, had lived hero on his
farm in Joliet township tho past twenty
two years, and was 67 years old. He was
a vigorous man up to the -moment of his
death, and never seemed in better health.
He leaves a widow, five sous and two
daughters to mourn his departure to tho
spirit world. He was a gonial, good

Electioneering under the new law is
generally done far away from the polls,
and old-timers say that it doesn't havo
the same interest that it formerly had
when a man could fix up the tickets for
twenty or thirty men at a time, place
them in their hands and follow along,
and see that each man cast the ballot as
given to him. The dickering in votes
has been pretty effectually squelched,
because the "heeler" can't be sure o! his
"voter" there is too much of secrecy in
the new way for the purpose of corrup
tion, and this is moro than good, it is

We concluded to delay our issue
this week until Thursday morning to see
if we couldn't get somo satisfaciory news
of the election. This paragraph is being
written the Saturday before election, and
of courso only general remarks over the
campaign are appropriately possible.
We have never seen, in the nine presi
dential campaigns, in which we have
taken more or less interest, a quieter
campaign than this haB been. For this
thero aro various reasons, applicable in
Nebraska, and some applying to the en
tiro United States. Tho candidates are
well known, two of them having been
president, and ono other (Weaver), been
a long-time figure in politics, co that
there was not the usual anticipation of
excitement, not knowing what new and
uncertain thing might bo sprung upon
tho canvass. Tho Australian ballot law
or its practical equivalent, now in vogue
in many states, has, with its absolutely
secret ballot, been an educator in pre
election silence and consideration peo
ple had largely "made up" tbeir minds
not to be shaken by the usual methods
of electioneering either on the day of
election or before. Tho local campaigns
were much tho samo way, and from
talks with candidates wo learned these
facts. Tho new election law is responsi
ble for a good part of this stato of affairs,
but wo have attributed the lack of in
tense excitement iu the presidential can
vass, greatly to tho fact that the admin
istration of President Harrison has been
among the very best in the whole history
of the country, was most likely to be
continued, and why worry over it. As
we write, we can only hope that this
Mr. Abram C. Southard, aged 47 years,
died at his residence, about two miles
east from Monroe, on Saturday last.
The funeral services, conducted "bv the
Rev. Robt. Killip, the pastor, were'held
at the Oconee Presbyterian church of
which the deceased was a member, tho
interment being at the Columbus cem
etery on Tuesday.
Mr. Southard was a native of New
York state, and camo to tho farm on
which he died, about fivo years since,
from Ohio, where he was employed in
some iron works. It is supposed that it
was there ho contracted the tendencies
to pulmonary disease, which at last,
after along struggle Tor life, ended his
days. Ha leaven a widow but no familv
except an adopted daughter.
He was much respected by his neigh
bors and friends as a kind hearted man.

An Interesting Letter from a Former Nc
brukan well known to Local Reader.
Deak Sik: We havo gono to house
keeping hero just as we did in Columbus,
and have not particularly noticed the
change, except the absence of familiar
faces and the echo of familiar foot-steps.
We do not always give credit to our
friends at their full value, nor realize
how much our happiness and pleasure in
lifo are dependent upon them until we
are away from their haunts. In spite of
"climate" and "prospects," the sooial in
stincts in man always fill a large space.
We aro reasonably well pleased with
the country and peoplo here. This local
ity is a valley about twenty miles wide
at this place, and extending north and
south a distance of GO or 70 miles. The
horizon is shut off by lofty mountains in
every direction, and the snow always
glitters in the Bun. The mountains aro
covered thickly in their upper parts with
spruce, pine and cedar trees, which give
a pleasant tint to the aspect. The melt
ing snows afford water to the streams
which find their way down into tho val
ley, and supply the water for irrigation
and domestic uses. The valley falls in
a series of benches from tho foot hills to
tho river, and is smooth, free from stones,
and with no abrupt breaks. Nature
seems to havo prepared it especially for
the purpose of irrigation. In its natural
state it is extremely barren. Tho land
is bare of vegetation, hopeless and deso
late. Hero and there a bunch of sage or
grease-wood struggles for an existence.
To tho eastern eye, accustomed to the
sight of vegetation in some form cover
ing ever- liill and point of laud, and
suggesting to the .mind comfort and
plenty, tho prospect, whore improvement
has not changed the outlook, is ono of
discouragement, and suggests tho scrip
tural figure of tne "abomination of
But. with the land under irrigation a
transformation is wrought at once and
as completely as if by magic. Tho river
is dammed and tho water led by canals
and ditches to tho ranches scattered all
over tho valley. When tho water is put
on and crops planted they grow with
surprising luxuriance and have a won
derful fecundity. Wheat, oats, rye, grass
and alfalfa produco from two to throo
times as much as on tho same area in
the eastern couutry. Wheat has been
known to yield seventy-five bushels to
tho acre. This is not, however, tho usual
nor average return; but from fifty to
sixty bushels is about the common re
turn. Alfalfa can be cut three times a
season, and yields from two to three tons
of hay each cutting. It sells for from
fivo to six dollars a ton this year. Tim
othy hay is higher. Tho nights aro
rather cool for corn, and its yield is
something like thirty or forty bushels
per acre. All the garden vegetables are
cultivated with great success, but the
particular feature which attracts atten
tion to thiB section is its success with
fruit. Apples, peaches, pears, plums,
apricots, &c, come early into bearing,
and produce fruit without blemish and
of superior flavor. The trees are robust
and healthy. Small fruits aro very suc
cessful. Many persons mako a specialty
of different lines of fruit growing, and a
few acres give good returns each season.
Tho industry is yet in its infancy, and
opportunities are open widely for per
sons who havo tastes in that direction to
engage profitably in that work. Butter,
eggs and poultry aro in demand, and pay
well for attention given thom.
The stimulus for all this cnterpriso in
tho valley is the demand in tho mining
towns scattered in all directions through
the mountain regions. Tho bulk of the
population in Colorado is engaged in
mining, and the land capable of produc
ing cropB is very limited and confined to
the lower valleys. These valley lands,
thereforo, aro likely to develope into
greater importance and value as time
u Tho climate here is regular, mild and
pleasant. The surrounding mountains
protect tho valley against winds, storms,
and sudden changes. Tho elevation is
about fivo thousand feet, being a littlo
higher than that of Salt Lake, and about
the same as that of Denver.
The scenery in the mountains is some
thing grand. Tho Black Canon along
tho Gunnison river is a chasm cut down
perpendicularly through the rocks, in
which the river flows and tho railroad
has been built. The walls of the chasm
are of different colored rocks, with here
and thero a water fall plunging down to
join the river, which is as clear as crys
tal, and runs over a rocky bed as clean as
a lady's center table. Spruce and pine
trees have here and there obtained a
foothold and growing, green and thrifty,
against the rocky wall, suggest festal
ornaments in some vast temple.
Tho town of Montrose has about 2,000
inhabitants, mostly eastern people, and
haB good buildings, many of them pretty
and of tho most permanent character,
being built of brick and stone. Streams
of water run past every lot, and shade
trees aro being planted along these all
over tho town. Tho peoplo aro mostly
thoso who desire to mako a home.
Well, I must close. Respects to all.
I will write moro in detail at some future

A POINTED PROTEST.
Tbe Cast-lroa Rales or the Teachers' Asso
ciation Scored a Bit.
Ed. Journal: There were sixteen
teachers, including, and under the di
rection of a few office-holders and office
seekers, met in the connty superintend
ent's room in the court house Oct. lot
to organize a countv teaohers' associa-
tion. The printed Droceedinira made a
column and a half, most of which wero
cast-iron rales that oven a heathen
would wince under. The county was
divided into four districts, and presi
dents and secretaries elected for each
If it had been made into ono associa
tion for the county, to meet at the
different towns, much more advantage
could be gained by a larger attendance
and at very little moro trouble.
Some of the rules are:
"The secretary shall keep a record of
all tardy or who leave before the meet
"It is hereby made tho duty of every
teacher in the public schools" of Platte
county to attend during tho year."
"A written excuse must be filed with
the county managor by teachers who
find it necessary to be absent."
"It is further stipulated that all teach
ers who receive certificates to teach in
Platte county are bound, and it is here
by made one of tho conditions of his
certificate to comply with the rules and
regulations of the association."
If teachers had no more confidence in
their pupils than the organizers of the
association have in the teachers, to do
tlieir work willingly, thoy would, or
should "be abandoned. If "they want it
to bo a success, make it worth tho time
and expenso to attend.
Then, I do not know by what author
ity they should dictate to me or any
other teacher, when I Bhonld go, or that
I should do this or that according te tho
appointment of a committeeon program.
An organization could, bo made very
