Wo glean tho following from a letter
written by Prof. L. J. Cramer, whoso
homo is now high up among tho moun
tains of Colorado: "Montroso is a well
built and pleasant town. It has tho
Holly water system, and an electric light
plant. Many of tho business houses aro
of pressed brick, and there aro many
tasty and expensivo residences. The
soil yields heavily under irrigation. I
saw potatoes, good and solid, weighing
8 pounds each. Tho yield scorns as high
as 800 bushels per acre. Fruits of all
kinds except the tropical produco well.
Gardens are very fine. There is a good
market in tho mining cities for ovory
thing raised, or that can possibly bo
raised in tho valleys. Eggs and poultry
aro always in demand at high figures.
Eggs are 40 cts. per dozen now never
lower than 15 cts. I think they would
pay big here. They can bo raised as
cheaply as in Nebraska. Chickens aro
free from diseaso, and tho dry climato is
favorable. Meats, Hour, Sec, aro cheap
hero and ono can live just as ho pleases.
Fruit, poultry, &c, aro high. While a
good deal of each is produced here, tho
demand in tho mountains makes prices
high. Fruit will be much plentier and
cheaper as tho orchards como into bear
ing. Most fruits bear in threo years
here; but tho old orchards aro few
mostly set the last year or two."

Children Cry for
The G. A. R.
Boys Tarn Out
Monday evening quite a crowd of
citizens, old soldiers and their families
wero in attendance at the opera house,
at the reception given to Capt. A. G.
Weissart, commander-in-chief of the
Grand Army of tho Republic, who is
maKinga tour tnrougu tne country in
the interest of the order.
Commander-elect Rossiter of Baker
Post in command of a large escort of
old soldiers, to the music of tho S. of Y.
drum corps, marched into tho opera
house at half-past seven, and stacked
arms on the stage. The national colors
were amply displayed, interspersed with
the portraits of generals, and the always-appropriate
faces of Washington
General Dilworth, commander of the
department of Nebraska, made the first
speech of tho ovening, dwelling upon
the tests of comradeship, the soldier's
duty to his family, his children and the
government, illustrating his views with
appropriate incidents and anecdotes.
Tho main sentiment of his speech to the
old soldier was: "Never, by word or
deed, to detract from the cause for which
ho fought, or exalt in tho lea6t tho other
Captain Weissart was then introduced
and interested tho audience with a
speech well calculated to give to out
siders an impartial view of the objects
of the order. Ho quoted from tho con
stitution of the G. A. R, showing tho
inception of the fraternal society that
now numbers a half million of veterans.
He asserted that he had been a mem
bo r over sinco tho beginning of the or
ganization, and he had never heard pol
itics discussed at a meeting of a post.
Men of all creeds and beliefs, religions
and political, were hero brothers. All
we ask is that they continue to be loyal
to tho samo Hag that wo all marched
under during tho war. If ho had his
way, the flag would bo planted over
every court house, church and school
houso in the land. He urged every old
soldier to become a member of the G.
Dr. Martin of Kearney, spoke in behalf
of tho boys of west Nebraska, extending
a cordial welcome to Commander Weis-
sari, ami congratulated uoiumnus on
having tho honor of entertaining tho
commander, and also of having ono of
our fellow citizens, Col. J. R. Meagher,
appointed on the commander's staff.
Major T. S. Clarkson, of Omaha, who
had boen the foundation of considerable
joking by tho other speakers, returned
tho compliment with compound interest
Judgo Hen8loy was called upon an
expressed tho sentiment that the chief
of all tho work of the soldier, during tho
war and now, is that we havo a real
union of tho states, whero before a great
many of even our best public men had
been favorable to stato sovereignty.
Colonel Barrows of tho S. of V. mado
a few remarks, also Colonel Meagher,
who declared that those who preceded
wero such adopts at spinning yarns that
ho would surrender.
Two gentlemen, whoso names wo did
not learn, added much to the interest of
tho occasion by their songs and recita
tions, tho exercises closing with tho song
"John Brown," a now verse being added,
to tho effect that Davis was afraid to go
to heaven for fear of meeting John
