I GinuoN. Neb. , Juno 15. Uolow nro the
I returns of the assessor for Gibbon township :
I Corn 5,000 ncrcs , nbout the snma ns lust
year ; oats 8,000 , increased ; wheat 555 , about
the sntno ns last year. The condition of
wheat is 100 , of oats 100 , of corn .00. The
.recent cool and wet weather kept the corn
from growlntr rapidly , but thcro Is n good
stand , and n tew warm days such ns wo are
baring now will bring it up to 100.
Uurt ,
CHAIO , Nob. , Juno 15. The increase In
ncrcago In this county of corn Is about 10
per cent , of wheat 20 per cent , of oats ,13 per
cent. Small gralr\ has suffered some from
drouth , but recent rains liavo brought it out
wonderfully. Corn looks well and promises
a big yield ,
CBjJTiiorous , Nob. , June 15. The crop
acreage of every kind Is nbout double that of
last year in this now county. The remark
ably wet spring nnd cool weather liavo put
small grains in splendid sh&uo. Corn has
boon a llttlo slow on account of the cool
weather , but the lust 'few days have boon
very warm , nnd corn is springing up rapidly.
No accurate reports have been given as to
ncrongo , but It is nbout ns follows : Corn ,
25,000 acres ; wheat , 7,000 ; oats , 7,000 ; mil
let , 12,000. The continued wet weather is
considered remarkable for western Ne
braska. Only a very few days have passed
during the last month and a half without
heavy rains.
LAMAn , Nob. , Juno 15. Crops of all kinds
look woll. Forty per cent moro of wheat is
sown this year than last and many pieces
look ns well ns any that can DO found In the
oast. There Is about 20 per cent moro of oats
i and corn growing hero now than there was
\ \ last year. Corn is n llttlo late , but has n
peed color and IB making rapid growth now.
\ The potato crop has nn increase of 50 per
i cent over last year's planting and looks well.
I Not much rye Is sown. Sorghum Is planted
I quite extensively tor winter feeding and
Jj doe * wall. The buffalo grass Is putting on n
' BOOd heavy growth and cattle and horses
fatten rapidly on it. Very llttlo tame grass
is sown yet , but those who have ventured
the experiment have good success. Break
ing nou is the employment now.
P&irmiouTii. Nob. . Juno 15. Crops m
Cass county never looked better than they
do now. The acreage is about the same as
last year. Corn Is 5 to 10 per cent bettor
than that of last year ut this tlmo. Wheat.
oats , barley nnd rye are looking line and will
nvorngo about the same as last year. The
bay crop will bo far hotter than that of last
year. The npplo crop will bo bettor than
for many years. 1'otiitotocs will bo plenty.
All other small fruits look promising.
Col la x.
CLARKEOX , Neb , , Juno 15. The acreage of
corn In this county Is 10 per cent greater than
Its was last year. Wheat and oats show a
i , marked decrease In acreage over last year.
\ yiio coru crop was nuvor better or presented
tlner prospect nt this season of the year ,
though It Is needing rain badly now. Wheat
and oatn are materially Injured by the dry
weather. Unless it rains soon small grain
will not bo mure than half a crop.
JUuVAitu , Neb. , Juno 15. There will bo a
Yory little Increase m the crop ncroago In this
county this year. There will bo a slight In
crease probably In the corn and oata acreage ,
nd a decrease In the wheat acreage.
Bc&rcely any wheat Is planted here now.
Crop * generally look very welt The corn
stand Is especially encouraging.
FAiuriBU > , Nou. , Juno 16. Tbo prospect
for crops of all Wndu was never bolter In
Clay county than It Is to-dny. The Weather
was dry In the early spring , so that formers
were enabled to got their crops In , In treed
Benson , Later * on wo have had plenty of
rain , followed by warm weather. Assessor's
return * nro not nil In yet. bat there Is appar
ently n largely Increased ncronge of ground
under cultivation over last year. This Is
especially true In regard to corn.
KIXIAH , Neb. , Juno 15. The acreage of
corn planted this year In but Hltlo , If nny ,
In excess of last year. The acreage In Clay
county will oxcecd 100,000 ncrcs. Corn Is
generally looking well , though considerable
replanting had to bo done on account of the
wet wcatncr in May. Oats , wheat and bar-
'oy nro looking line , and n largo average , es
pecially of outs , lias been sown.
Si'itixo HAXCIIB , Neb , Juno 15. The acre-
go of corn In thU county Is fully up to the
average , but the prospects nro that at least
10 per cent datnngo will result from the ravn-
ces of cut-worms , woods nnd squirrels.
Thcro Is ngood deal of old corn In the farm
ers' cribs. Of onls , the ncrcngo Is much
greater. The grnln has a very heavy straw ,
und Is heading out. Of wheat nnd birloy ,
the acreage is less , but the prospects uro the
best ever known. Of rye , the acreage Is less ,
but the prospects nro Immense. The only
danger to small grain is rust ,

eral hundred acres.
LEXINGTON , Neb. , Juuo 15. The ncrcngo
ol wheat through thin county is about 25 per
cent larger thnn last yenr. The crop Is lookIng -
Ing line and promises largo yields. Oats nro
remising Innro returns with the ucroatjo
nbout the same us last year. Recent heavy
ruins have revived corn nnd now It promises
larger returns thnn Inst season's crop. The
ncrcago Is about. 0 per cent larger than lust
season. Barley ivsd rye will multu iv good
average crop. The acreage is not very Inrgo
'n thiscounly.
GoTiinxiiuuci , Neb. , Juno 15. The uurcago
of nearly all crops is larger than formerly.
This is attributable to two causes : First , nn
incrcnso of population , nnd second , to the
fact that crops of all kinds wen ) good last
ycnr , giving the people renewed uonlldenco
In this county. Wheat , rye and onts nro all
looking very good. Corn is n little late , ow
ing to the great amount of rain and cool
weather , but looks fairly woll. Token alto
gether crop prospects were never better at
this season of the year than they are nt this
nic ,
OVCRTON , Neb. , Juno 15. The spring wheat
nnd onts look remarkably promising. The
prospect for corn In this section Is fair.
There is not n very even stand owing moatly
to the cold , wet weather. A similar report
comes from the farmers of the bluff section
of the county , both ns to corn and small
crntn , us nlso from the Elm creek nnd Wood
river valleys. Altogether the crop outlook
"or Dnwson county this season is u little bet-
cr than tbo average. There is some Increase
n acreage over lost , year.
FunvoNT , Neb. , Juno 15. The crop pros-
iocts In Dodge county nro at the present
time decidedly oucouraginc. The acreage of
corn will exceed thatof last year. The acre
age devoted to this staple is gradually In
creasing from year to year. The stand is ns
good ns over was Known In this section , nnd
s almost perfect. It is at least two weeks
further advanced than for the corresponding
date for the avcr.iffo season. The acreage of
oats is larger than last year. The stand is
; oed , but is just now needing rain , ns the
leads are formlne and the plants "stooling
out. " The acreage of wheat Is a tritlo smaller
than last year. The crop is In good condi
tion and the prospects Haltering for moro
than an average yield.
CUIITIS , Neb , , Juno 15. An csumnto from
152 farmers gives nn average of 2J per cent
excess in Ifab'J over 1SSS.
OIIIOWA , Neb. , Juno 15. The ncrcapo of
corn , wheat nnd oats In Franklin precinct ,
as shown by the assessor's Books for 18b ! > , Is
ns follows : Corn 10,000 acrcs.last years 8,900 ;
Wheat 700 ncres , last year 538 ; oats 3,000
acres , last year 2,810. It will , therefore , bo
scon that in this p red not , atloast , a largo in
crease in the ncrcngo of nil throo'staples has
taken place. The Increase in ncrcngo of oats
nnd wheat is noticeable throughout the en-
tlro county , but there is apparently no per
ceptible decrease in the ncreace of corn.
The crop prospect was never brighter. All
kinds of grain nro looking fine nud tbo
weather is favorable to everything.
"UUMONT , Neb. , June 15. The prospects
fonn ibundnnt crop , in this section , were
never .noro fluttering than at present. All
IU.IUM of grain , fruits and vegetables are in a
nourishing condition. Outs , especially , nro
putting forth nh exceeding rank growth , and
if the remainder of the season should bn fav
orable , there will undoubtedly bo nn enor
mous yield of this grain.
AuAi-Anoc , Nob. , Juno 15. Small grain ,

of u good crop of corn.
BEAVER CITY , Neb. , Junol5. The increase
over lust year in corn acreage is Si per cent.
The wheat acreage is increased 10 per cent ;
oats , 10 per cent. The condition of the crop
is very Haltering.
EI.WOOD , Nob. , Juno 15. The crops
throughout Gosper county are in excellent
condition , and the acreage of corn , wheat
nnd oats , especially wheat , is far in excess in
this county of what it was last year. Pros
pects for a largo yield of wheat wore- never
BEATRICE , Nob. , Juno 15. There Is nn in
crcnso in the ncrongo of corn of nbout 15 per
cent over that of last year. The Increase
in acreage of small grain will reach 20 per
cent over last year. The condition of small
eraln is excellent und all that can bo desired.
It was never known to better in the county
at this season. Flux Is ono of the great
staples of Gaco county , and an Increased
acreage has been sown. On second breaking
or old ground it is in splendid condition , nnd
will give a moro thnn average crop on now
breaking. The stand of corn Is thought by
many farmers In all quarters of the county
to bo better than last your. A few warm
nights will benellt it greatly , as tno cold
ground has a tendency to keep it In check.
This Information Is gleaned from representa
tive practical farmers , nnd the con-
vlctlctlon is that the crop outlook in Gngo
county was never bettor than it , is at this

the various kinds of crops In Hamilton
county , as compared with lust year , may bo
approximated us follows : Corn , about 5 per
cent moro ; oats , about 10 nor cent less ;
wheat , hardly raised nt all ; ( lux , 10 per cent
moro. Next to corn , flux is , portions , the
most Important crop. Oats and flax are look
ing line , and corn , under the stimulating In-
lluenco of the last few days of warm weather ,
Is getting well started. There Is an increas
ing amount of tame meadows in this section ,
which at present are looking fine.

Wheat 7,100 , corn 20,035 , outs 8,881. The
acreaco In corn la fully 10 per cent Increase
over that of last year. Up to the 1st of Juno
the rainfall had been very light and wheat

this month have soaked the ground up , ox-
excepting In ono or two sections of the Loup

It is growing rapidly , but will not recover

with many symbolic rites ; a small table
a sort of movable altar is placed in

are separated from it by a band of rose-
colored satin ; when the priest calls they
nust advance , and the ono who first sots
oot on the band , husband or wife , will
bo the one who will impose his or her

watch them at that moment. On the

cross which they will exchange , the cup
of wino in which they will inoifatoti

Slavonic ritual "tho cup of bitterness. "
Pages relieve each other to carry with
outstretched arms two heavy crowns ,

An Incident ol * the Flood In Massa
chusetts , Alny ,1J , 1874.
The following stirring poem , written
by John Boyle O'Reilly , ib recalled by
the heroic ride of Daniel Peyton , the
Paul Kovcro of the Conomiiugh dis
aster :
No song of a soldier riding down
To the raging light from Winchester Town ;
No song of n liiim that bliook the earth
With the Nation's ' throe u"t u Nation's birth ;
I3utthe song of u bravo mun , free from fear
As Sheridan's self or Paul Hevcre
Who risked what they risked , free from
And its oromiso of glorious pay his life.
The peaceful valley has waked nnd stirred.
And tie answering echoes of life uro heard ;
The dew still clings to the trees and grass ,
And the early toilers smiling pass
iYs they gUnco aside ut thu whltc-wallcd
r homes ,
Or up the valley , where merrily comes ,
The brook that sparkles in diamond rills
As the sun comes over thn Hampshire hills.
What was it that passed like an ominous
breath 1
Like n shiver of fear or n touch of death !
What was it ? 'Iho valley is peaceful still ,
And the leaves are nliro on thu ton of the hill.
It was not n sound , nor a thing of sense
But n pnln , like the pang bf the short sus
That wraps the being of those who s > co
iVt their feet the gulf of eternity !
The nir of the vnlloy has felt the chill ;
The workers pause at thodoor , of the mill ;
The housewife , keen to the shivering air ,
Arrests her foot on the cottage stair ,
Instinctively taught by the mother-love ,
And thinks of the sleeping ones above.
Why start the listeners ? Why docs th
Of the mill stream widen ? Is it n horse ,
Hurl : to the sounds of his hoofs , they say ,
That gallops so wildly the Williamsburg
way ?
Godl what was that , like a human shriek
From the winding valley ? Will nobody
Will nobody answer those women who cry
As the awful warnings thunder by )
Whence come they ? Listen I And , now they
The sound of the galloping horse-hoofs near ;
They watch the trend of the vale , nnd sec ,
The rider , who thunders so menacingly ,
With waving arms and warning ecroatn ,
To the homo-filled banks of the valley
stream ,
He draws no rein , but ho shnkcs the street
With n shout ana the ring of the galloping
And this the cry that ho flings to the wind :
' To the hills for your livcsl 'iho Hood is
behind I"
Ho cries and is gone , but they know th
The trechcrous Williamsburg dam has
burst !
The basin that nourished their happy homos
Is changed to u demon. It comes 1 it
comes I
A monster in aspect , with shaggy front
Of shattered dwellings , to tuku the brunt
Of the dwellings they shatter white mimed
nnd bourne ,
The merciless terror Jills the course'
Of the unrrow valley , and rushing raves ,
With dentil on the Ilrst of its hissing waves ,
Till cottage and street and crowded mill
Are crumbled nnd crushed.
But onward still ,
In front of the ronring Hood is heard
The galloping horse and the warning word
Thank God that the bravo man's life is
spared I
From Williamsburg Town ho nobly dared
To race with the Hood and to take the road
In front of the terrible swuth it mowed ,
For miles it thundered nnd crashed behind ,
Hut ho looked ahead with a steadfast mind ;
"Thoy must bo warned I" was all ho said ,
As away on his terrible ride ho sped.
When heroeu nro called for , bring the crown
To this Yankee rider ; wend him down
On the stream of time with the Curtlus old ;
Hid deed as the Roman's wus brave und
bold ,
And the tale can as noble n thrill awnko ,
For Lo offered bis life for the people's sake.
