Files of the Journal, May :UI, 1S77.
A dusky uboriginee, u number of
whom ramped near the city, paid his
coiiiphmeiitH to th Journal this week,
but instead of bio card presented us,
with considerable ostentation, his "pedi
giee" hy the interpreter, whose name
although we count oun-elves tolerably
good on hieroglyphics,) we were unable
10 decipher, from what we learned
the "noble red" in our presence was an
Otoe chief, a "e,ood Indian" and that any
little donations of money, cold chicken
or other meats or eatables would be
gladly and thankfully received.
Moat farmers have finished planting
corn, and that put in several weeks ago
is making a line appearance. In some
sections of the county more than usual
nrnplaint is made against the depre
dating gopher, which bus been variously
dealt with aud put past future forages
on corn crops by trapping and by strych
nine. Many who, several 1hh ago,
thought that their corn had rotted in the
ground, find that the encouraging
warmth of the last week has brought
most of it along nicely. The careful
farmers have gone all over the lields,
however, examined the situation where
it appeared doubtful, and replanted
where necessary, ami we aie pleased to
hie that work generally is being more
thoroughly done than usual. As a rule
Nebraska farmers undertake to cultivate
too much land To a certain limit, a
decrease m the number of acres, giving
a corresponding bettei quality of work
done, results in greater profits to the
farmer. We were very much struck with
a remark once made by our friend Goo.
W. Olother, upon a return from a visit
to Canada and the eastern states of the
Union, viz: "If the farmers there should
farm as we do, they would soon starve to
death: if we should farm as they do, we
would all soon be rich," which is bo
palpably in the line of truth as to be at
once recognised by every farmer in
Nehr-ihl.n.

While preparing a meal at his room
over the O. A. Lutz & Co. wooden shoe
factory last Friday morning, Fred Han
Ion, Union Pacific watchman, was badly
burned by the explosion of a gasoline
stove. Before moving to his present
qunrters, llanlon occupied a room in the
old Union Pacific store house, which
was burned some time ago. The explo
sion saturated his clothes with gasoline
and he ran down the stairs to the street,
completely enveloped in llames. Two
bystanders removed their coats and
smothered the llames, but he was quite
badly burned. The injuries, while very
painful, are not serious and it will be
some time before he will be able to be
on duty again. Mr. Uanlon's home is at
North Platte, but he has been stationed
at thrs place for some time. A couple of
buckets of water quenched the llames,
but an alarm had been sent in and the
department responded. The building
was not damaged by the blaze.
While helping place the last course of

place the large 1,300 pound stones, and
when the accident occurred was just
ready to swing one of them into position.
The clevis, which held the stone, was
defective, and broke, precipitating the
stone and Mr. Brock to the sidewalk, a
distance of about twenty-five feet. At
first it was thought that Mr. Brock had
been crushed, but hia injuries were found
tn consist of a broken leg and a bad
scalp wound, and probable internal
injuries. Wednesday morning he was
resting easy and so tar mere are no
developments that would indicate inter
nal injuries. The outcome of the acci
dent was very fortunate, as those who
witnessed it were certain that he had
been killed outright.
