Editor Nonpareil : You say in today's
issue : "It took four hours yesterday to
got a train of stock from the Omaha
yards over to the Iowa roads. "
Now 1 presume uomo one told you
this , for I can hardly believe that you
would wilfully print , and make public a
statement in which there is not a sem
blance of truth , unless you had what
you supposed goodauthority fortho samo.
I had hoard about this "four hour"
business before , and have investigated it ,
nnd find that the time was -15 minutes
from the ( time the stock in question
loft tlicso yards until the same was de
livered toV. . II. Burns , joint agent at
the transfer in Council Blull'j. I give
my authority for this , and it is Harry
Gilmore , yard master of the U. P. Ily. ,
[ 3maha , who waa with the Block when
ihoy loft the yards , and remained with
.hem until they reached Omaha and per
sonally know the time the train loft
there and arrived at the transfer in
Ilating Omaha will not build up
Council Bluffs. Imitating her ( Omaha's )
iluck and enterprise rather , would have
i moro salutary ofl'oct in routing the

Thu pusillanimity of aomo men is

with a litllo authority and power , the do-
ire to exorcise which often makes thorn

nan should never leave them. The do-
ire , however , of the oflicor "on tolo-

lim to make this innovation on the rules
of the police station. The nbovo ro-

1 PLOUGHING THE BILLOWS ,
The Last of the Miles Blandishes i
Nebraska Farinor ,
Visit to His Pleasant Home
in Oass County ,
Tlio Descendant of tlio Illnatrloni
In ono of the loveliest portions of fail
and tortile Cass county , hbout twenty
miles from the thriving little city o
Plattsmonth , there lives a young farmot
who , though in humble circumstance1) ) ,
can trace his ancestry back further than
many of the aristocr.itio citizens of the
Hub. Ho boara the famous name oi
Miles Slandish , the illustrous captain
who came over in the Mayflower , and is
of the eighth gnnoration of that name ,
counting down from the date of the
landing at Plymouth Hock.
When , less than thrco centuries ago a
Ilttlo fair haired child was playing among
the hedgerows of England , who was des
tined to learn the art of war and bo a
lower of defense to the unsoldierly col
ony of Protestant America , who would
mvo dreamed of the romantic future and
ho imperishable fame which awaited
lim. Much loss could Capt. Miles and
"his bolovcd Rose" have believed that
joforo those thrco contnrics had closed
another "littlo fair haired boy" the ninth
; onoration of their family , would
irst sou licht beneath the sunny skies of
, ho Far " \Vpst and play among the llowor
aden praii-ics of thn then unicnown trans-
Missouri country. Yet ono of those appar
ent impossibilities has boon realized and
lie other is likely to for the young Cass
county farmer married a young Nebraska
girl about a year ngo and it will bo
strangu if ho ia not called upon to chris-
, rn the ninth Miles Standish before the
The fact that the last of the Standishos
was located in so remote a quarter from
.ho family birthplace , was learned
.hrouuh the genial gentleman and indo-
atigablo insurance man , Mr. R. J. John
son , of this city , whoso territory includes
? ass county and ho has a splendid fac-
ilty of discerning a good news item when
10 sees it. At his invitation a drive was
akon ono lovely Sabbath morning out to
lie farm and homo of the subject of this
article. The drive was through
ono of the handsomest pieces
of farming country in the state , and in
ho heart of Cass county. Leaving the
> old bluffs which at this point guard the
Nebraska shore , the way lies across a
rolling prairie undulntiona extend as far
as the eye can reach , until iinally , they
are lost in the horizon. The hills and
valleys involuntarily remind ono of the
stormy ocean o'er whoso tubulont bosom
ho little bark bore her precious load of
) aasongors , but a magic wand has solidi-
iod the waves and instead of snowy caps
rom oacli crest now glistens only thu
asaols of growing corn. The trough of
lie inland sea no longer threatens des
truction , but through ir , between broad
rich meadow lands and fields of ripening
maize , flows the sparkling stream that
; ivca li o to the land and refreshes its
nhabitants. Notwithstanding his
juido's familiarity with the county gen
erally , it scorned at times as if a chart
and compass would bo a
; oed thing to aid in piloting
, ho reporter to the spot sought. Fences
are not the style hero and when you are
directed to go to the next corner , north ,
urn to the loft and drive to thu third
cornei- and then turn south two corners , "
vith not a sign of a fence corner to bo
eon it looks like a vague intimation to
, ako a tumble toyourself. . After going
out oi our coureo several times and
doubling ever several miles of the road
ho residence of Mr. Fred Terryborry ,
one of the wealthiest and most success-
til fatmurn in the country , was reached.
Jla homo is a model western ono and
, ho plain , ono-story dwelling ia sur
rounded by granaries bursting with old
corn , pens tilled with American hogs
hat oven Bismarck could not object to ,
and aUbles containing cattle and horses
.hut are true typos of the fine Nebraska
Breeds , Inaido the house thu most im-
irovcd farming implements are only loss
ittractivo than the line piano in an ad
joining room and a whole arsenal of guns
n ono corner leads to
; ho statement that Mr. Terry-berry made
iia first money by hunting and got his
amunition out of the trunk of an old
tree by the aid nf a jack knifo. After a
; rand dinner which was greatly relished
in hour was spout in looking over thu
'ubtiloua treasures of corn , grain , etc. ,
nnd then , with better directions as to
lie route , another start was taken for
Standlsh's ' place , which ia rented from
VIr. Terry/berry , a great admirer of his
oung tenant's energy and pluck. At
ast.it was.roached and aeconding a gen-
Iu olovatiou thu buggy waa drawn up at
ho door of the house , on the stops of
which stood Mlles himself.
Longfellow in describing the bold
Sow England warrior , says howas"short
if staturu , strongly built and athletic ,
> road shouldered and deep chested ,
jroivn as a nut was his face and russet
lis board , " and , with the ex
ception of the beard , which as yet only
shows itself by a brown moustache , the
toot has painted n very accurate picture
if his successor. Young Miles is cosily
f not luxuriously fixed in his now homo
and blessed with a charming young wife
lU lifo is no doubt a happy ono.
In searching among the circuitous roads
which led to the house , the only resort
mil been continual interrogation of the
'armors thorcaboutand in BO doing much
was beard concerning Miles and his life ,
so that it is safu to say that ho will real ,
zo the wish of the historian in the dudi-
: ation of his "Lifo of Milus Standishtho ,
i'uritan Captain. " This reads ,
"To thflilvsiuiiilntiU of Capt. Milcn Ktamlmli ,
low nuiaboriiiK tlunisuiuls , thin yulumo la to-
pt'itfully inecrihtxl , with thu hope tliat iiuuiui
if them nmy o\ur dim the lintcr of thitnnuu
o which tltelr ilUtiiiriiUhoil ( ancestor has at-
acheil Imperishable rcnowu. "
The namu will not bo tarnished in this
Thu visitors were invited into the little
arm-houso and made quite a call during
which the talk was largely upon the sub-
ect in 'ideation and the memoranda kept
> y thu host hlmsulf. This ) od to a gen
eral conaidoration of the voyage and life
of Capt , Miles Standish , and though
hat is made familiar to all our readers ,
) y both the historian and poet , a fo\v in
cidents will bo found of interest. Thu
utter eays Capt. Miles Standish "was a
; cntlunun born , and could trace hi pod.
uracu plainly back to Hugh Standinh , of
Duxbury Hall , in Lancashire , England.
Hugh was tha aon of Ralph and thu
grandson of Thurston do Stan-
dish. Ho alao says ho was
'heir unto vast estates * * * "
which ho wai defrauded out of. The
family records fhow that the income 01
the estate belong to the two families < vn
half a million dollars a year , which hac
they fallen to the legitimate hcira woult
have made the descendants of the purl
tan soldier among the richest men in Am
erica to-day. In fact , not only back tx
the days ot Thurston do Standish bu
back to the thirteenth century can be
traced the rank and opulence of the fam
ily , It is probable that the diversion o
the estate arose from the religious quarrel
rol growing out of the bitter foolin ;
caused by the passagn of the "Act o
Conformity" in 15011 by Queen Elmbotl
after nhich there were two families
the Catholic branch , hailing from "Stan
dish Hall , " and the Protestant branch
from "Duxbury Hall , " Capt. Mile ? descending
sconding , of course , from the latter am
leaving thu service of Qroat Britain to
came with the Pilgrim father ? and aid in
establishing religious freedom in America.
The eldest son , from Thurston do
Slandish down to thu latest were : Ralph ,
Uui h , Mlles , Alexander , Miles , Miles ,
Miles , Miles , Alfred , Noah , In accord
ance with the will of Capt. Standish , the
records , heirlooms , and ether property
descend to the oldes. Miles Standiah ol

at once bcconio the property of the noxl
Milesgoing instead to the oldest remain
ing member of that generation and thence
dcccondlng , * according to the ago of the
survivors , until the generation is extinct.
following the death of the last remain
ing brothur or sister of Alfred , his father
and no baby Miles would bo entitled to
, ho treasures until his uncles and aunt
tad all passed in their chocks. Among
.lie relics each then coino into possession
of are to bo noted , a pair of brass "lira
dogs" used on board the Mnyllower , and
i pair of silver sleeve-buttons worn by

diamond-shaped and each composed of
; wo similar plocoa , connected through
ho cuff by a slender silver link.
