LINCOLN , Oct. 10. )
The annual convention of the Society
of the Homo for the Friendless met this
morning at the First Baptist church ,
with the president , Mrs. II. C. Manly ,
in the chair. The meeting was very
enthusiastic and the attendance from
the various auxiliaries all that could
liave been expected. Committees were
appointed on credentials , finance and
other purposes. The most important
appointed , however , was the committee
on the revision of the constitution and
by-laws , which is composed of one mom-
hoi from each auxiliary.
The reports generally show an in
creased interest in the work in all parts
of the state. It is certainly in an emi
nently prosperous condition. The pub
I lication of the Homo News will bo con-
tin tied another year.
Mi OH Jennie S. Swnnson , the teacher
nt the Home , road the mo-it important
paper of the day. She reports an aver
age attendance of forty-nine pupils.
They pursue the course of study fol
lowed by the pupils of the Lincoln pub-
lie bchools , and also UKO the same
text books. The Sunday tchool is doing
a splendid work. It is well organized
ami receives substantial aid from the
various schools in the city. The inter
national lesbon leaves are contributed to
the M'hool. The temperance meeting ,
which is hold every Friday afternoon , is
conducted by the children of the home ,
and they seem to take more interest in
it than in any other social recreation
provided for them. The convention
promises to be the most Mieccsuful over
known in the history of the society.

Since last July ho has languished in
durance vile because ho could not give
the bail exacted by Judge Houston for
assaulting his wife with an alleged in

At the time of his committal
Bobby was somewhat blacker in the

it is remembered that lie is a gentleman
of color it will not bo wondered at so
much. Fred Mueller , howevercame to

Major Kleutse.h will probably accept
the * / > < ) ( ) offered him by the city council
lit its last meeting in lieu of the dam
ages he sustained in raising the lloor of
his building on tlio northeast corner of
Klevonth and A streets to the required
grade. It was shown that the building
was on a level with the old Harvey
prado , and hence the justice of the
claim for damages. The major has been
busily engaged in considering the prop
osition all the afternoon , but at last ac
counts it was understood that he would
accept the tender and end the trouble.
But no will point to the city in the after
years with an "you-owe-mo eye. " It is

General Lccso , Secretary Laws and

praisement was approved. The ad
vancement of value of those lands ranges
from 150 to 2-iO per cent on the first ap
praisement , which was made in these
counties from ISO ! ) to 1871 , and is a fair
index of the increase in real estate val

LKIOItTON VS CLAKKIC.
The case of Leighton vs Clarke was
placed upon the docket by the clerk of
the district court to-day. The parties
to the case are Charles M. Leighton , of
Lincoln , and H. T. Clarke , of Omaha ,
nnd the suit has grown out of a break in
the agreement at the final dissolution
Of the partnership existing between
them on the 4th day of March , 1881.
ffhe case is concisely stated as follows :
On September ( I , 1883 , Mr. Leighton
end Mr. Clarke entered into a partnor-
Bhip and engaged In the drug , oil and
paint business in Lincoln under the firm
name of Leighton fc Co. , and in Omaha
under the name of Leighton & Clarice ,
each partner contributing 850,000 of the
capital stock , and toshnrooauallyin the
prolits and losses. In December , 1884 ,
the Omaha partnership was dissolved
by mutual consent. On the 4th day of
the following March the Lincoln busi
ness was disposed of in a similar man
ner , but stipulated agreements were
entered into which , Mr. Leighton al-
lo us , have been violated in tote and ho
asks equity relief at the hands of the
court. Ho thinks that at least $5,01)0 ) of
his money is in Mr. Clark's hands and
that the books of the old firm will fully
Justify his prayer for judgment and
Bests in that sum.

Mr. Henry Fulu-cr , who lives between
this cltv and Bennett , somewhat past
the dividing line , tolls of an experience
last night that discounts anything over
known in the history of lightning
freaks. About 0 o'clock his house was
entered by the electric lluid , nnd it did
not stop to go in through the doors , but
split U wide open from whence it cime
and whither it wont. Mr. Fuhror
was knocked senseless and his
oldest son succumbed to n
like state. The other members of the
family suffered very little from the ef
fects of the shook , with the exception of
ono child , who was struck by a piece of
tvood knocked from the walls of the
house by the bolt. The two ends of the
house were split and the aides bulge out
BO that it Is almost uninhabitable. The
injured boy , in his description , says that
a big ball of lire entered the room , and ,
like u great star , suddenly disappeared.

bio where it had formerly been consid

when first coming U ) Nobr.iska reading
the elaborate editorials of our Omaha ,
newspapers written to show that the
laws of nature had doomed the greater
part of this magnilicunt state to the
ranch industry alone. To-day I am
writing on ground whore four years
ago , cowboys were branding mavorlulcs
on the White river roundup , within
easy ride of four great cattle ranches ,
then 100 miles from the nearest No-
braslai farm. Twenty feet from where
I hit was a cowboy saloon , then the only
habitation within three miles of whore
the nourishing town of Crawford now
grows and progresses. Outside of the
military post of Fort Robinson , this
great section of northwestern Nebraska
now split up into three counties then
contained le&s than 500 residentsmostly
cowboys. The counties of Sheridan ,
Dawes and Sioux to-day have 2-3,000 in
habitants and , wonder of wonders , most
of them are farmers making a living
from tilling the soil whioli in 18SI was
pronounced barren and sterile. It is
A UKMAKKAIIIji ; TltANM'OUMATIOX.
Hide with mo from C'hadron , that
magic city , the county seat of Dawes
county , down the White river. From
the outskirts of the town wo pass
through fertile Hats , yellow with stubble
from the Holds of cut grain , or pictur
esque with broad acres of corn which
would bear comparison with boinc of the
host in the eastern portion of the state.
The valleys of the Chadron , Horsohead ,
Little and Big Ash Creek , Squaw and
White Clay are filled with prosperous
and industrious farmers. The old trails
across , side hills and down "draws"
have boon barricaded with wire fences
enclosing pastures or preserving Holds
of wheat , of oats or corn. Neat frame
houses are taking the place of the fron
tier "shack" and log cabin. As wo
p.ibs under old Crow Unite
the unfamiliar sound of the
threshing machine comes from a neigh
boring barnyard where a gigantic pile
of straw flows in increasing bulk from
the whirling drum. As wo reach the
ribe above the White Clay a panorama , of
meadow and pasture , of Holds of brown
corn and yellow stnbblo dotted hero and
there with neat farm houses and roomy
barns spreads before us , while through
their midst runs the White river to its
junction with the Missouri , far away in
southeastern Dakota. In the level
Hat below lies
next to Chadron the largest town in
northwestern Nebraska. It came in
with the advent of the Klkhorn lino. It
bids fair in the near future to employ
the services and to reap the benefits of
several competing lines of railroads.
With nothing to draw upon but its lo
cation as the nearest town to a large
military post and thocenter of the finest
agricultural section in Dawes counlv ,
Crawford lias built itself up in the little
over two years of its existence into a
solidly substantial community with a
daily increasing trade , and every prom
ise of future greatness.
The town at once impresses aslrangor
with the thrift of its residents. The
buildings , from the handsome brick
block which contains the bank to the
newly-finished Methodist church , look
as if they were constructed to stay. livery
trade and profession is well represented.
A score of well-stocked stores and
shops , two excellent newspapers , three
church organisations , Methodist , Epis
copal and Catholic , with lawyers to fur
nish them material to work on , two
doctors , a half a dozen carpenters ,
blacksmiths , wheelwrights , two well
equipped livery stables , and a sprink
ling of tradesmen in almost every
other line form the nucleus of what
is to bo some day a bustling city and
which is to-day the neatest , cleanest
and thriftiest town of its size within a
radius of00 miles. An
UNTAILINC ! WATI5K WMVKU
in the river runs along its western
boundary. Fort Itobinson with its ton
companies of regulars lies but throe
miles to the southwest ; rich farms sur
round it , stretching far northward to
wards the Dakota line and meeting on
the Running Water divide the fertile
region of the LJox Hutto , while north
westward and beyond lie the rangestho
ranches and the c.ittlo shipping trade.
The hopes of Crawford are built on
the continued prosperity of that portion
tion of the country for which it is the
natural ontrenort and depot of supplies.
The topographical features of this sec
tion of the state naturally determined
the location of the town. The
military reservation prevented its
site from being selected far
ther west. The valley of the
White river which hero takes a sharp
turn to the cast stood in the way of a
more northern situation. Southward
the pino-orcnstod buttes and the IMno
Ridge circumscribed in that direction
the choice of a location fora largo town.
The railroad company did well in choos
ing the lovely Hat bounded by the gentle -
tle ascents of rolling prairie and watered
by the swift-flowing river and the butte
girt waters of White Clay. The town
came and it has come to stay. It is
building itself up by the solid qualities
of its citizens nnd through the increas
ing trade of. the neighboring farms ten
anted by some of the thriftiest and best
equipped farmers of Illinois , Iowa and
FOUIl YUAUS' CHAXOK.
Four years ugo , as I said at the begin
ning of this letter , there was not a
single farmer in this section , Oi Snt-
urday 1 counted forty Voiims hitched
along a alnjrli ; Btroot of Crawford.
There is scarcely a quarter section , I
f.ra told , within a radius of ton miles
\\hiuh has not been taken up. Kast-
ward to Chadron , all the land is occu
pied. On the high divide south there
is still seine available farming land re
maining , but unothor year will Hnd tills
also gone. Within the last week ,
the overllow of several "harvest
excursions" have dropped into Craw
ford and , no land seeker after viewing
the magnificent crops has permitted
himself to leave the county without
taking the preliminary stops towards a
In company with two of the old sot-
tiers of Dawos county , John G. Soohlot
and John Cummings , I rode through
the county yesterday to inspect the im
provements and to sou what frontlet
farming was capab'lo of accomplishing
when joined to Industry , push and thrift.
I wish some of our eastern writers on
the "rain bolt" could have scon the line
farm of (100 ( acres owned nnd cultivated
by County Commissioner Lane , and sit
uated about three miles from Crawford
down the White river. If they could
have viewed the magnificent stretch of
ripening corn running fifty bushels to
the acre , the broad Holds of stubble
from which from twenty-five to twenty-
seven bushels of full kcrneled wheat
had boon cut and the heavy oats run
ning forty pounds to the bushels , not
to speak of hundreds of bushels of the
finest potatoes that over grew in west
ern soil , the Salt Lake valley not excepted -
copted , I imagine that the
prophecies of the fallacy of farming
west of the one hundredth meridian
would have gurgled In their throats. I
should like to take thorn to the farms of
my old friends , Ed Nosbitt and Asa Nc-
Manus , between Crawford and Crow
Hullo , or passing bej end to introduce

of Cyrus Fail-child , John Welsh nnd N.
S. Townsend , who are growing every
thing that can bo raised in Nebraska on
the great Hat from which , live years
ago , Fort Robinson was supplied with
hay. Or if these theorists about by-
gromoty , rain gauges and "God's
eternal laws" ( which 1 do not think they
have over understood ) were still unsatis
fied. I would drive them to White Clay ,
to the farm of my friends Hrainard anil
Wilbur , around to Dcadmnn , where
Weber and Snedeker and Freeman are
tickling the black soil and making it
Hourish like the rose , and up Soldier
creek , now lined with small farms and
gardens , whore Rodgers and Nutcliings
are showing the world what they know
about farming , and making a good liv
ing in teaching the lesson. And then I
would not have half exhausted
the circuit of Crawford's farm ,
ing neighborhood. The region of
Cottonwool ! would have been loft
unexplored. The White River valley
to the northeast would not have been
traversed , and the rich belt of country
rising northward to the hills would
have been quite omitted. Only eight
or ten farms out of nearly two hundred
would have been mentioned.
A SIXOM ! IXSTAXt'K.
Let mo give the history of a single
farm , which directly adjoins the town
site of Crawford , owned by J. A. Cuni-
mings. In four years Mr. Cummings
has brought the entire KiO acres under
fence and cultivation. Ho has built , a
roomy hewed log homo , two roomy
frame barns , and various outbuildings
for bousing stock and implements. Ho
has raised this year fifty acres of corn
which will run fifty bushels to the acre ,
twenty acres of oats , ten acres ot pota
toes , besides a largo Hold of millet and a
full garden of vegetables. What makes
the success of Mr. Cummings particu
larly interesting is the fact that all his
crops have boon put in with a planter of
his own invention , for which he has re
ceived the first patent issued to a Dawes
county in venter. I was greatly inter
ested in the exhibition which Mr. Cum
mings gave of the simplicity and eflici-
oncy of his invention. It is
attached to tho' beam of an
ordinary plow whoso share covers up
'ho seed as it drops from the hopper
nto the furrow. By an ingenious de
vice the hopper can be made to feed
seed of any sizefrom potatoes to wheat ,
in J to plant them in drills or broad-
ast. The simplicity of the invention ,
ts ease of operation , its ofllcioncy as
demonstrated in Mr. Cumming's splen
did crops , all planted by its use , nnd
, ho cheapness with which it can bo
nanufacturcd and sold make it certain
tliat , ono resident of Crawford has got
i good thing outside of fertile lands
: uid a line town.
Within bight of the town stand the
White River mills , owned by Mr. Leroy
Hall , ono of the most enterprising cili-
/.ons of Crawford , and its only banker.
Mr. Hall lias done much for the banker ,
but ho never did more than when lie
erected the fine roller mills now fully
Dccupied in making the best grade of
Hour from Dawos county wheat , lie has
an inuxhfiustiblq water power , which is
only partly utilized at present by his
Hour , grist and saw mills.
I should like to speak individually of
the merchants of Crawford , of Scliolield
and Eastman and Dietrich and Fred
Hathan , of my sturdy old republican
friend Jesiah Burgers , of W. A. Ilam-
lin , whoso handsome residence would do
credit to any town ten times Crawford's
si/.o , of Postmaster Fail-child , a good
democrat and a good man , terms not al
ways synonymous ; of John Sochler , the
earliest settler in those parts , with a
body nix feet two tall and a heart as big
as all outdoors , but I have not space and
so cannot. Colonel Kotcham and Will
Edgar , who are running the Clipper
newspaper and trying to keep it up
with the pace of the country , mustcomo
in for thanks for kindnesses shown.
Thov know how to help build up a com
munity and they are busily engaged in
doing it. If a farmer stubs his toes ,
fights a threshing machine , raises a ton
ton pumpkin or a thirteen-foot stalk of
corn , it is certain to bo noticed in the
Clipper olllco. And so nine times out
of ton will bo the pumpkin and corn
stalk. At present their editorial sanc
tum looks like a section of a county
agricultural show joined to n uowspapoV
and job ollice.
Crawford has great hopes of becoming1
the junction point for the Burlington
and NorthwiMorn systems. The Bur
lington surveyors have run twelve lines
through the town and their stakes are
within a few hundivd yards of the Elkhorn -
horn Valley roadbcd.nnd pointed north
ward. The proposed line is the Black
Hills extension from Alliance , the me
tropolis of the Box Butte country some
forty miles south of this point. If the
Burlington strikes Crawford , 1 predict
that witliin Hvo years tliero will bo a
city at this point which will exceed in
si/.o nnd importance any town from
Norfolk to the Wyoming lino. It will
bo the only town with a competing line
of road in that long-stretch of distance.
It will draw tratlie from the range as
well us from the farm , from the fnrrl-
son and soldiers equally with the farm
house and civilian. It is bound to bo a
largo town under any circumstances.
It has the location ; it has the right
class of citizens. It , 1ms a magnificent
country to draw upon and a great mili
tary garrison pouring thousands of dollars
lars annually into , the pockets of its
merchants. What , can prevent its
growth. AV. E. Axxix.
