White covered wagons arc the kind of
vehicles we have become accustomed to
see, and on some of them are various
, mottoes, and names. A few days ago a
' train patnH along our streets on which

horses attached toa picket line running

Last week this part of the "Great
American Desert" was again visited by
'soft and gentle showers of blessed rain,
infusing new life and vigor into vegeta
tion wbioa in some places looked sick
and many thought near unto death. At

frequent gentle rains, and the most of
the gardens we have seen about town
look well, and garden vegetables are
' growing rapidly A good rain again
Last week, some seventy Otoe Indians
visited this place. They were on their
way to visit the Pawnees. We came
across one of them, a tali, straight Indian
with a plug hat on, who gave his name
as George. He stated that they expect
ed to make presents to the Pawnees and
receive presents in return They would
have a "big eat" and a "large dance."
George was looking about our stores
'with a view to invest in some showy
articles for preseuts, we suppose to the
.Tair squaws of the Pawnees. We notice
that ribbons of "loud" colors suited best
bis fancy. George stated that their
' wheat on the Otoe reservation looked
much more promising than the same
did here, and that the corn was some
larger than it was here.
Lute North with caretaker Louie
Fritts and the fast pacing horse Black
Douglas, shipped oat from here Monday
evening for Davenport, Iowa, where Mr.
North will continue the preparation of
his hone for the strenuous campaign he
has mapedout for him.. Weather con
ditions have been such here that it was
useless to try and bring the horse up to
his speed. Black Douglas is entered in
races at Peoria. III.. Terre Haute, Ind.,
Libertyville, III., Galesburg, 111., Daren
port, Iowa, Dubuque. Iowa, Hamlin,
Minnesota, and Milwaukee, Wis. Purses
of $1,000 are hang up at the first five
meetings, and at the latter two places
$5,000 each. Mr. North did not think
that he would start his horse at Peoria,
July 3 to 10, as he will have to race
against horses from the south that are
already in condition, bat at Terre Haute,
July 14 to 17, he will more than likeiy
face the starter. When he left here
Black Douglas never looked so well and
strong. There is no doubt that Mr.
North has one of the best horses ever
raised in Nebraska one that is always
willing to go a long journey, and no
matter where be races, the horse that
leads him to the wire will realize that he
has been in a sure enough race. Every
body here will watch with interest the
career of this horse, and any good luck
that may come totheowoer will be fully
enjoyed by his friends at home.
