Is the owner of a very valua
able rat dog , and he an <
his ratter were called in. Quite i
crowd of men assembled to see th
fun. It was noticed that there wer
two or three rat-holes in the coun
ting-room , and to prevent the escap
of the rat , in case the dog misset
him , each hole was guarded by i
gentleman , who placed his foot eve
it. JMr. Richards was one of thos
who thus .stood guard. All being ii
readiness tne door of the trap wa
thrown open , and the rat was mad
to jump out. He struck th
floor right side up , am
the dog sprang for him , but missei
him. The rat doubled on the dog
and then made a bee-line for th
hole guarded by Mr. Richards , th
canine being in hot pursuit Th
rat had probably been through tha
hole many a time before , and nol
withstanding it was complctel ,
covered by the'foot of Mr. Richard ;
he disappeared from sight to th
great astonishment of the dog an

"He's gone , sure enough , " CM
"No , he isn't , " shouted MJ
Richards , "here he is up my pantx

shaking with his arms spread out , i

he certainly appeared as if ho wei
desperately trying to shrink bin
self into nothing. However , he ha
the presence of mind not to attemj
to get at the rat with his hands , fi
had he done so , he would undoubtoc
ly have received an ugly bite. TL
crowd comprehended the predicj
ment ho was in , and hurriedl
coming to his rescue , they quickl
pulled off his pantaloons , when tb
rat juipped out , much to Mr. Ricl

hole , but was captured by the do
and killed. Mr. Richards declare

HAUXDEUS COUNTY , Sept. 21.
EDITOR BEE :
We find the feeling existing
among the farmers of this countj
far more buoyant than we anticipa
ted. Wheat , oats and flax crop :
average better than they have foi
years. Considering the light wheat
crops and abundance of corn real
Ized in Douglas and m the more
nortii and western counties , UK
farmers here expect to obtain , befon
spring , as fair a price for wheat a :
their neighbors will for corn ; so witl
this prospect as a consolation thej
mourn but little over the devasta
tions of the grasshoppers , but just a
present they arc not particularly wel
pleased with the price of wheat , am
many are feeding it to their hogs
calculating thereby to realize ;
greater profit than by stlliuj
their pork at the present , lov
prices and holding whea
for an advance in tin
market. Nor do they think favorably
of disposing of their hogs to west
ern buyers , claiming that even nov
they can ship to Chicago , add tin
cost of transportation , and maki
fifty per cent , more on their sale ;
than by selling here. Thus it oc
curs that those buyers who ar
shipping both east and west I
points where feed is cheaper , ar
shipping poor ard half-fed stock
which they obtain at low figure
from farmers who are obliged ti
sell , and from those who are no
anxious , owing to the high price o
feed , to uintsr and. fatten them
Taking the general yield of thi
season throughout the entire Stat
into co sideration , Saunderscuint ;
has little to comply in of , bcyom
the present wet weather , \ hich fo

ing and bay-making , and this sam
complaint arises from all sections

is a topic in which considerable in

The BEE is the favorite , has ai
extensive circulation and is aregu
lar weekly visitor in almost everj

ing paper of the State , with th <

On Inquiring at several post offices
for a copy of the Jlcpublican wt
\\eretold that possibly we mighl
find a copy or two at Ashland , and
had we come a year or two soonci
we probably would have been able
to obtain one at Wahoo ; but as the
paper had 110 spirit , energy or progressiveness -
gressiveness about It , and as the
fanners were live wide awake men ,
the paper had in the last year lost
its former patronage , and was now ,
but a melancholy rcmjnlscenco in
the minds of exceedingly old
It' the Union is desirous that its
existence should be known in this
section , wo would advise it to send
a few copies gratis , provided , of
course , it could find a man who
would consider It worth taking out
of the post-office.
Now and then at long intervals
we see a copy of the Herald , and
yesterday we were somewhat agree
ably surprised at a piece of informa
tion given us by a lady friend of
Doctor Miller , who emigrated a few
years ago from Missouri and squat
ted on a piece of land hero. It waste
to the effect that the Omaha Herald
was the only Omaha paper that
ever should come into her house ,
as it was the only goo-1 religious or
gan published in Omaha , and for
that icason the only one fit for a
family of children to read , and as
she intended only Christian influ-
3iice to come in cantaot with her
children , she would patronize onl\
Doctor Miller , who she believed was
the only Christian and God-fearing
