The crop failure last year shows its
effects in many ways. It makes double
the amount of work in feeding stock, as
their rations are principally cured corn
fodder without the corn, and if the best
results are to be obtained, it must pass
through a feed cutter and be fed in
boxes. Horses will livo on that for food
alone, but it will draw the spirits all out
of them, and it would be a sin to work
them hard without grain, and we believe
many will be disappointed in the spring
(when it is too late to remedy it), if they
think their teams will do the usual
amount of work in the fields without
We need not expect to read of
accidents caused by runaway
teams, until after the next crop of oats
is harvested, when drivers should be
cautious lest old Jake give them the"

The Seward Reporter says that diph
theria has been prevalent to some extent
at Staplehnrst and at Goshner recently,
several deaths having occurred at each
place. It occurs to The Journal to
muggest to the proper authorities that in
such cases there is equally as great a
necessity as in larger towns and cities to
take every precaution against the spread
of disease, by the use of all means re
garded advisable by the best of physi
cians. We have no doubt that tho
precious lives of many children might
have been spared for years, if even what
are now regarded as ordinary means of
prevention had been used..

Many Years Ago.
Twenty-four years ago, this week, tho

in The Journal:

A lengthy article sets forth the bene

A citizen declared that last spring he
could have bought a certain town lot for
8100, that now is worth S150, owing to
The Journal acknowledges itself a
pensioner of Dana (who shines for the
N. Y. Sun), for his genius for news, and
skill in criticism.
A colony of twenty-seven families had
located lands in southeastern Butler
county, and expected to commence ac
tive operations in the spring.
An Omaha gentleman owned two lots
hero for which his agent had rofnsed
8600 apiece. Two Columbus men went

8300 worth of butter, and raised 8160
worth of calves, or 92 cent on the in
vestment; the summer of '70, though
dry, realized 83 per cent.
On the Sidney Press remarking that
copper had been found near there, the
Brownville Advertiser suggested that
there were quite a number of places in the
state where both "copper" and "brass"
could be found in abundance.
Josh Billings was tho great humorist
of those times, and this little relish will
not be amiss:
"The butterfly has hnnp np hia fiddle.
The bng and the cricket aro still;
No more can be heard in the marshes.
The mosquito filing his bill."
The Utica, (N. Y.,) Herald gives a
lengthy quotation from our market re
ports, with comments of its own, a small
portion of which we hero reproduce:
"It will be seen by those figures that
very few of the necessaries of life cost
more in Nebraska than they do here,
while breadstuff's are little more than
one-third as dear, and meats are almost
In those days The Journal gave retail
prices of groceries, Hour, grains, nails,
lumber dealers stock of all kinds, staple
dry goods, farm implements, milch cows,
etc., 60 that those contemplating moving
west could tell exactly what their houses
would cost, how much it would cost to
keep their families, etc. (Business men
of the little town subscribed and paid
for ten to twenty copies of tho paper
each and ordered them sent to friends
east for this very purpose.)
A. Guille of Zanesville, Ohio, (who, by
the way was for years a regular reader of
The Journal through the courtesy of
his friend J. P. Becker), writes that The
Journal has given him a fever along
with his old shakes, and that should it
result disastrously, tho editor will be in
danger of a suit for damages, for should
be be induced to emigrate and then be
disappointed, he'd sue for buffalo meat,

From the Leader.
Mrs. C. E. Pollock who spent the holi
days with Genoa friends had a serious
attack of erysipelas which compelled her
return to Columbus the last of the week.

Peter Larson has had some hog-wire
fence stolen from his place and some
other parties have- lost barb wire on
spools. The thief had better be looking
out that he don't get a barb wire fence
around his neck.
From tho Son.
The old adage that troubles do not
come singly was verified last week in the
family of Charles Groteluschen who lives
on Shell creek. While coming home
from Schuyler his team became frighten
ed when near home and threw him out
of the wagon, cutting his head open and
fracturing the skull. His wife ran to the
nearest place to get help and her exer
tions so overheated her blood that her
four months old child to which she gave
nurso soon afterwards, was taken sick
and died. The littloono was buried Fri
day. Mr. Groteluschen was badly injur
ed but from what we hear will recover.
Tho committee from the M. E. church
which has been soliciting supplies for
the western sufferers have met with suc
cess and will have a large amount of-"
provisions to send. There will be over a
ton of flour, some oats, clothing and a
large amount of provisions consisting of
beef, pork, etc. These are to be brought
in today and sent out west via the B. &
M. Although tho Methodist people
havo been instrumental in gathering and
soliciting tho goods the Sun is informed
that it is not for those of their religious
belief alone but is to be sent where most
needed, regardless of politics or religion.
Excellent success was met with in the
country and very few people were called
upon who did not contribute something.
From the News.
The first of January left several men
in Fullerton out of a job. E. D. Gould
will not have any horses out next year
and this lets out a few men. Thomas
Miller has concluded to cut down ex
penses and as a consequence his barn
will be run short-handed for awhile.
Several clerks around town are also
waiting for trade to pick up before they
will find employment
Tom Lee's Shadeland colt is the com
ing horse, now generally believed iu
horse circles. Chandler took him out
the other morning and pronounced
him a great horse. He has been en
tered in the easy stakes all over the
country and will bo put on his metal
next year. Chandler will have charge
of him, and at this time a great future
for the horse is predicted.
There is hardly a week passes but
some one in town receives a letter in
regard to the Furnival murder case.
Of course most of the correspondence
comes to tho sheriff's office, but not all.
The county clerk, lawyers and promi
nent citizens are constantly in receipt
of correspondence of one kind or an
other. The bulk of the writing comes
from the detectives generally of the
amateur class. Only last week the
sheriff had a letter from a man in Den
ver who thought he had Furnival lo
cated. Most of our people, however,
still adhere to the belief that Furnival
is in Mississippi, and that Lee Goddard
had him rightly located.
