Last Saturday night was an occasion
of happy surprise at the Presbyterian
parsonage. The pastor, Rev. Elliott, his
wife and children, were quietly prepar
ing for the Sabbath, when their home
was invaded by a large crowd of pilgrims,
who carried in their hands and on their
shoulders bundles and packages as if
equipped for something of a journey.
They, however, concluded to rest awhile,
and enjoy tho comforts of a social even
ing. They sang joyfully, talked freely,
laughed heartily, listened reverently to
the pastor's words of appreciation in be
half of himself and family, and joined in
a fervent prayer to him, "from whom all
blessings flow." At a seasonable hour
thev all retired to their happy homes, j
navmg tno saiisiacnon ot running anoth
er home more happy, and realizing that
the bond of union in the work of the
Lord is strengthened by such angel
visits. Their burdens were left as tokens
of interest and of united feeling, in silver
and substantial, for both tho inner and
the outer man. to the value of about $50.

It has suddenly been discovered that
thero are places in this city where gam
ming nas oeen earned on, and the mar
shall has been given orders to close the
poker joints up. The Press says "ho
went around and told the proprietors to
close up." Now, how in world did he
know where to go to? If ho knew who
wero ruuning such places of amusement
(?) beforo Mayor Miller gave him orders
to look up tho matter, was it necessary
for him to wait for orders? We called
attention to the fact that gambling was
going on here in David City months and
months age, but apparently no attention
was given the matter. There has been a
regular club of gamblers running a room,
besides numerous other places have been
used, tho old court house for instance,
and even tho new one, and no attention
nas been given tno matter. o can
agreo heartily v ith the Press in saying
that Mayor Miller is on the right track,
but theso gambling joints should not
only bo closed, but tho gamblers should
bo caught and wound up in the meshes
of tho law as fast as they open now places.

be compelled to go out of tho business

It is coming time for farmers to
consider spring and summer work, and
among plants now to this section, or at
least not commonly known is the Soja
bean, tho merits of which seem worthy
of attention. A writer in tho Nebraska
Farmer, a former resident of Otoe coun
ty, this state and now of Virginia, savs
that the Soja bian is very genorally cul
tivated in tho south, a close rival to the
cow pea, which it equals as an improver
of the soil, and which it excels in feed
ing value. Its yield on rich ground is
simply enormous, reaching 4,420 pounds
to the acre. A moro profitable hog pasture-
in tho fall, when the beans are
nearly mature, can hardly bo imagined.
In tho west this should be its most prof
itable use, thus saving all oxpenso of
harvesting. As a renovating crop in
Nebraska, Mr. Wiggin says, ho behoves
this bean would bo superior to clover,
because more certain.
Tho Nebraska Division Council of

Tho cultivation of llax seed has been
one of tho most profitable items in farm
ing, especially on now land, broken for
the first time. It is a crop that is almost
invariably assured and being first into
market, tho producer is enabled to roalizo
on it, and get it out of tho way, before
other grain is ready. It has been the
practice for years to loan seed in locali
ties where new land is being taken up,
and this policy has been largely instru
mental in making Iowa, Minnesota and
the Dakotas famous as llax producing
states. So says tho Nebraska Farmer,
and wo can testify to the benefit of llax
as a crop on new land in Nebraska.
Many a man in this state has opened a
farm and realized from the first crop of
llax on the sod more than enough to pay
all tho expenses of breaking.
Chancellor Canfield delivered a lec
ture before tho Nebraska Live Stock
Breeders Association his theme being
the relations sustained by the University
to the practical pursuits of men here in
tho west. Ho was glad to say that the
Stato University today stands for some
thing practical in the eyes of men. It
has for its baso the good common senso
of tho common people. A system of
education that stands on so broad a
foundation as this cannot topple over.
It must stand for all timo. His words
paid a high tribute to the intelligence of
the common people whom he regards sis
the builders of the highest educational
institution of the state.
