The Journal seems to havo been
doiug most of the gathering of local
news in the city for some time past, not
only for the benefit of its own readers
but also for the benefit of some of the
other papers of the city, which, without
credit, have been using our work as their
own. Of course The Journal is not
copyrighted, but some recognition, or
other acknowledgement of our work is
certainly due from these contem
poraries. C. R. Coulter, A. T. Reynolds and
Chas. Locke of Toledo, Ohio, arrived in
the city Saturday on bicycles. They aro
on their way to San Francisco, claiming
to average sixty-seven miles a day, riding
thirty-pound wheels and carrying forty
five pounds of baggage. W. C. Whitall
and G. G. Blyrngs also came in; they
are from Minneapolis, bound for Los
Angeles, and are averaging forty miles
a day. This exercise seems very favor
able to health.

For a short time Wednesday even
ing Schuyler and vicinity was threatened
with a destructive wind storm. The
wind came from the southwest, and
filled the air with dust and rubbish, but
beyond the breaking of a few limbs from
the trees and upsetting a few 6mall out
houses little damage was done. E.
Klein's barn on his beet farm in north
Schuyler, was rolled over until it stood
on the roof among the growing saccha
rine plants. As it was empty there was
nothing hurt but the beets. Herald.
The case of Holly Thew at North
Bend is one of those occurrences calcu
lated to call attention of the public to
the manner in which school affairs are

high school laboratory of that place, an
explosion occurred, from which, we are
informed, he has become totally bund.
At the school meeting the other day a
committee of six was appointed to in
vestigate the matter thoroughly. At

D. L. Bruen of Grand Prairie was in
tho city Friday. As ever, he is a great
friend of tho creamery as an institution,
and of ours he says it is the best enter
prise ever started in the county. In his
neighborhood alone, farmers have had a
regular monthly income from sales of
cream, of $20 to $70 right along, which
has been to them ono of their largest
sources of revenue and profit. The man
who strikes a blow at the dairy interest
hits Bruen where he lives. Butter and
eggs are two among the most important
elements of our national wealth.
C. J. Watson, living about eleven
miles southwest of Columbus, in Polk
county, had on Friday noon 200 acres of
corn standing about two feet high. It
looked strong and good. In the evening
it was subjected to tho pelting of a
myriad of hailstones, large and small,
followed by a good big rain. W. H.
Lewis had specimen stalks from the
field Saturday, and when he was told
that the corn would likely bo all right,
probably wasn't hurt, etc., he was in
clined to question the veracity of tho
"relators" and insist that, if that was
the fact, we had better have more such
The tendency of the times is toward
specialty lines of work in all industries,
and in this, certainly, rightly managed,
is more profit than in general work, be
cause special preparation and fitness
give increased custom and this builds
up business, making profits still greater,
and again adding to facilities to make
the specialty more effective. In Tenn
essee there 'are two men who on a farm
of 700 acres make a specialty of raising
potatoes. They grow two crops an
nually, get about 125,000 bushels, em
ploy a groat many negroes, make their
own barrels, and clear some good money.
We believe that specialty farming would
pay well in Nebraska.
T. Morris of Crestou was in tho
city Friday. He had been up at Peter
son's, west of Platte Center, to holp
straighten out a corner in dispute, and,
although he differs from County Sur
veyor Rossiter, he thinks he is right.
Mr. Morris returned soveral weeks since
from Wyoming. Ho says that country
has bright possibilities before it when
railroad communication becomes more
general; it has a wealth of natural re
sources outside of agriculture, which of
course depends upon irrigation. Oil in
some places is dipped up like water and
used for lubricating engines. The
places which depend on mining havo a
precarious existence at best, and just
now are languishing.
The county institute is now closed
and the teachers dispersed to their sev
eral homes. The attendance was some
thing over one hundred and the teachers
generally expressed themselves very
enthusiastically over their instructors.
A number of the teachers were in favor
of continuing a few weeks to have sum
mer school, but the condition of the
funds would not justify the superin
tendent in this expense. Prof. O'Connor
of West Point and Prof. A. E. Parsons
of Creston, Iowa, have made many
friends who will be glad to welcome
them back again any time. Thursday
and Friday were examination days and
now the teachers will be out seeking
fall terms of school.
Wo go to press a little earlier this
week, mailing The Journals on Tues
day so that all the forco working on the
paper can fully enjoy the whole of the
Fourth without a thought of ordinary
business. This day, above any in the
whole calendar, (if any difference is to
be mado of days), should lie held sacred
to patriotic memories. With all tho
faults of varying administrations, our
form of government, our constitution,
is the best yet devised by men, and the
people of this country, with all tho fa
cilities which they have for informing
themselves, and with their well-known
energy for righting matters when a crisis
arrives, will continue to demonstrate
their ability for self-government, and
tho management of every interest en
trusted to them, no matter what ob
stacles may bo presented.
Peter Schmitt now has a mill on
Shell Creek, run by water power, with a
capacity of fifty barrels of Hour a day,
that is a delight to see, and doubtless
will prove to him an excellent invest
ment, though ho has put into it a very
considerable sum of money, somo $9,500
in the way of improvements over the
original purchase, which itself was a
considerable sum. And still he goes on
improving, Frank Clark and George
Andrews having the contract for a new
flume, which is to be completed in ten
days; in the meantime the mill will not
bo running. Tho additions to the mill
make it, in every respect, equipped for
first-class work tho flour product is the
very best. Mr. Schmitt has a little
sample of irrigation two acres planted
to potatoes, upon which he has been
piping water from the creek. He ex
pects, ono of these times, to put in a
California pump, and irrigate his little
farm of forty acres. He has no doubt he
can do this very readily.
It is almost incredible that there
could be so much change in people as
the following would indicate. Wm.
Lawrence and Alice DeMoss, known to
quite a large circle of Journal readers,
seemed all the world to each other when
they were here, years ago. A nicer
young lady you would scarcely ever see,
and Lawrence seemed all right. A
special telegram to the Inter Ocean from
Cleveland, under date of June 18, says:
"William H. Lawrence, one of the pub
lishers of the Ohio Farmer, and a man
prominent in social and business circles,
has been sued by his wife for alimony.
Mrs. Lawrence accuses her husband of
the grossest kind of cruelty, alleging
that he has assaulted her on an average
of forty or fifty times a year, blackened
her eyes on Christmas Day, bruised her
head against a register, and otherwise
made her life a burden. Once, 6he says,
he chased her through the house to
throw her from an upper window, but
she escaped by running down the back
stairs. Last Thursday, Mrs. Lawrence
asserts, she was out driving with her
husband, and because she would not
hold the horse in front of a saloon while
he went in and took a drink he swore at
her so terribly that she left the vehicle.
He followed her in the buggy, swearing
at and abusing her, and at Erie street
deliberately tried to run over her. On
Murison street he jumped out of the
buggy and began to drag her along the
street, thus attracting a crowd. As a re
sult of this they separated. Lawrence

Sup't R. J. Porter of Culbertson
was in the city Monday and gave this
office a pleasant call. He will bo re
membered as teacher in our high school
several years ago. During his brief stay
here he made a number of friends among
our best citizens. From here he went
to Creighton, and has been at Culbert
son tho past two years. Ho says that
Dundy, Chase and Hitchcock county
are in sad plight this season on account
of the dry weather. "The past two years
they had splendid crops, but this season,
so far, has been so very dry that tho
crops amount to comparatively nothing.
People have been disposing of their
horses, cattle and hogs, in anticipation
of a scarcity of feed, ono woman recently
selling eighteen good cattle for $100.
In his visit to Denver recently Dr.
Voss had quite an experience in going
up and down a railroad where the grade
at times was 200 feet to the mile. We
traveled over that same road, on the
"loup;" above Georgetown looking out
ward from the circling track, it seemed
as though our car was hanging in mid
air without any support whatever. Tho
doctor tells us that he sat on the plat
form while making that particular part
of the journey, and didn't get light
headed either. Alfalfa is, he says, one
of the greatest productions of eastern
Colorado, western Kansas and Nebraska.
At Dodge City, Kansas, a man has alfalfa
that he gets three to five tons on the
acre, and although they have had no
rain this season, the alfalfa looks very
fine, and the roots go down ten feet.
School meeting wa9 held on Tuesday of this
week; as atraal. the affaire of the district were
fixed op in good shape.
We understand a wee new comer has lately ar
rived at the home of Mr. E. C. Morrow. We did
not learn whether it was a boy or frirl.
The recent rains haye greatly revived all vege
tation and also the spirits of our people, so
much so that they feel like celebrating tho
Fourth in good old-fashioned style.
A lively runaway took place one morning last
week., Mr. Sam Gertsch's hired hand was haul

Who Will Next be Honored by the People
Tho above question will bo answered
by the republicans meeting in conven
tion at Omaha, August 22. In tho past
the republican party.has been particular
ly fortunate in the high character of tho
men it has selected to fill this position,
and never has it possessed as great a
number of efficient, capable mon to select
from, as it has now. Tho latter state
ment being true, it would scarcely bo
prudent politics to continuo the occu
pant for a period exceeding four years.
Among tho new men in the field, active,
capable and scholarly, tho name of no
one stands out more prominently than
that of Charles S. Conoy, of Stanton
county. Mr. Conoy is ono of tho most
energetic, scholarlv and enthusiastic
educators in tho state. This statement
is borne out bv tho high character of
the work of the schools of Stanton
county, and by tho educational zeal of
his teachers, patrons and pupils. Mr.
Coney is widely and popularly known
among the teachers of the slate, aud to
them particularly would his selection be
a source of satisfaction.
In the selection then of Charles S.
Coney for tho officoof superintendent of
public instruction, the convention will
have made a choice creditable aliko to
the cause of education, the party and
Let the next superintendent bo Charles
S. Coney of Stanton county.
