and properly cares for
We know of eeveraWarmers who have
already bought corn for feed. We imag
ine that not mach of this valaable grain
will be msed for fael this winter.
There are several crops of wheat in
this neighborhood not yet threshed, and
thousands of bushels garnered, for sale
when prices reach 91.00 and upward.
Messrs. Oerrard & Bead, bankers, in
form us that since the wheat market
opened here, they have paid in cash over
their counters for wheat purchased her us
aa average of $3,000 a day. This of
itself is an excellent record, bat does aot
include all purchases made.
Mr. J. P. Becker informs us that three
years ago the shipment of wheat from
this place amounted to not more than
twelve car loads. This fall, so far, as
Mr. Abner Tamer informs as, there have
been upwards of four hundred ear loads
shipped. This was a somewhat better
year than 1870 for the culture of wheat,
bat the immease increase is attributable
to the vastly increased acreage of 73
over any .former year, and we believe
that next year the acreage will be doable
what it was this. Wheat grows well on
sod (and there was mach of it turned
last summer) and the winter, so far,
rives fair promise of an excellent yield
of al! kinds of crops next season. From
all accounts we have, this winter is sim
ilar to that of 1868, when a good snow
fell early without wind to drift it, and
laid nearly all winter There is no bet
ter fertilizer than snow and rain, both of
which contain a great quantity of

The funeral of the late Daniel Mc
GrathOoadoa,wa died December It,
at the home of a daughter, Mrs. David
Hale in Kansas City, from dropsy, was
held at St. Boeaveatura church last
Saturday afternoon. Daniel Condon
was born in Mitcfaelstown, county Cork,
Ireland, March 10, 1838. He cme to
Montreal Canada, with his parents when
eight years of age, and in 1861 was mar
ried to Anna O'Connor at that place
In 1861 be came to Columbus and locat
ed on a homestead east of town in Colfax
county, near Richland. He at first
engaged in farming, and later took up
railroad contracting, building the Ore
gon Short Line tunnel at Fossil. Wyo.,
ia 1891-2-3, and later in partnership
with Con Gallagher, built the stock
yarda at South Onaaa. Early ia the
seventies he circulated a petitioa start
ing here, sating fer the pardon of Ed
ward O'MeegaevCoadon, .when he was
confined ia a Brinish prison, and obtain
edsomaay signatures that President
Hayes took the matter up with the result
that Ooadoasras released. Dariag the
big flood of 1881 four of James Haaey's
children died of diphtheria, and MrCon
don brought the caskets from Colum
has, making part of the trip in a boat
through a portion of the Platte filled
with running ice. He. was a man of
sterling worth and a kind and loving
father and husband. During the last
summer he spent seven weeks at Mon
treal, after an absence of twenty-five
years, lie leaves to mourn his loss, the
following children: Mrs. Jennie Walker
aad Eugene Condon of this city, Mrs.
Jamas H. Hale aad D. F. Jondon of
Kansas City, and Mrs. F. J. Beatoa of

there to Luun'son foot. After taking
the automobile he did not start the engine
until out of hearing of the owners house,
and when he did, he ran "along the side
of the road to threw his pursuer's off
the track. He passed through Monroe

Lying dead in a cornfield, with a bul
let hole back of his ear, presumably a
suicide, to body of Velma Fams was
found Saturday afternoon by his employ
er, Frank McLean, who lives on the old
Balcom place, nearClarka. A revolver
olasped in his hand, with one chamber
emptied, told the tale of how he met his
death. The young man had been work
ing for McLean for a short time, and
nothing peculiar had been noted in bis
actions, until Saturday afternoon,
when McLean noticed the team stand
ing still in the field where he was husk
ing corn, and going to see what was the
matter, made the above grewsome dis
covery. No motive is given for thedeed,
if the young man's death was premedi
tated, although some are disposed to ac
cord his rash action to disappointment
in a love affair. He was 22 years of age,
and a young man of more than ordinary
intelligence. His home was at Shelby
and the body was taken there for burial.

On October 5th I left Colambos, Neb.
The route from there to New York was
vary ordinary, with the exception of the
beautiful scenery ia Pennsylvania, the
horseshoe bed being especially grand,
arrived at Jersey City Oct. 7, and took
the ferry to New York. Through the
kJadaeasof a friend in Columbus, I waa
eatsrtaiaed there aad apaat one dny in
the eUj ahopping. The elevated cam are
the beat modeof eoaveyaace I have seen
ia'aay of the cities. On Oct. eI board
ed the steamer Adriatic of the White
Una, and oa Taesday morning at
6:90 we sailed. This atsamship is not so
swift aa the Lasitaaia, bat eertaialy is
. She weighs 9CM0 toss, aad is
TMfestloag. The ship is fitted out very
luxuriously, aad aa enormous apaee is
devoted to tho eeriianry departaseat. It
is very much like a email villsge, having
etorss ia the forward parte of the
ship. We had some very alee psssangorn
oa board, aad it dose aot take long to
become acquainted. We arrived at
oouiuamptoa uck. iy. My impreamons
of that place were not or the best for it
waa raiaiag, aad I learned that it bad
been the greater part of three months,
both ia Eaglaad and Scotland so much
in fast that farmers still have their grain
out in shocks all over the country.
From Southampton we went to London
where I remained only a few hours, not
long enough to aee much of the gran
deur of the city. The scenery through
England to Stirling, Scotland, ia perfect
one sees nothing but stone houses,
nuny of them quint old designs, with
thatched roofs, possibly built a century
ago. Scotland ia very similar. to Eng
land, perhaps more picturesque end
more historic At Stirling I visited the
famous Bridge of Allen and Stirling
Castle, built ia the time of Bruce and
Wallace. The soldiers have their head
quartera there, even yet eentrys ia full
dress (kilts) are oa duty eonstaatly.
From the castle beautiful views of the
winding river Forth aad aarroaadiug
oountry can be obtained. In Edinburgh
I visited Princess street, one of the pret
tiest streets ia the world. On one aide
there is a long row of splendid etorea'nnd
on the other Edinburgh Castle, a grand
old etructure, ap assay feet from the
level, of the city. This castle is well
kept and soldiers are in evidence every
where. I also saw the home of John
Knox, Sir Walter Scott's monument and
Arthur's seat, a huge mountain of rocks
forming the figure of a lion. Then nt
Queen's ferry the British channel fleet
and others grere harbored when I went
throagh. The fleet consists of about
thirty battleships and forty gunboats.
At Coldstream I have eeen ruins of
Wars, Forizal and Norham castles.
Then we aaw the house where the
famous Coldstream Guards were raised.
We also went to the bridge over the
Tweed where one can pnt one foot in
Scotland aad oae ia England. At Glas
gow, where I am at present, attending
the Atheneum school of music, I have
seen their Botanical Gardens, Art gal
leries and the Zoo. The people here are
very different in their manners and cus
toms -an Amerienn is easily picked out.
I will stay here about four months and
will write again later.
