The terribly severe weather of. the

A report is current at Fort Randall,

The Illinois Legislature has been en
gaged for a number of -days balloting for
United States Senator without choice.
Gen. Logan is the straight Republican
candidate, but cannot carry the entire
party vote, and appears, by the latest
ballots to be losing ground. It is hardly
possible that he can be elected, and it
now seems likely that some man who can
command the full party vote and draw a
little strength from tbe Independents,
will have to be taken ip in his stead.
We notice that the irrepressible Sam.
Wood has introduced a bill in the lower
house of the legislature, providing that
silver coin shall be a legal tender in
Kansas. We have no objection to the
object eought to be attained by the pro
posed enactment, but wo think there is
a slight impediment in the way of its
enforcement. If we remember rightly,
there is an act of Congress passed in
1873, which provides that silver coin
shall only be a legal tender for sums of
live dollars or less. It may be that the
bull can butt the locomotive off the track,
but we think that an act of Congress is
a pretty heavy document for even a
Kansas Legislature to buck against.
The Legislature began balloting for
United States Senator last Tuesday
morning, but at latest advices no choice
bad been reached. The first ballot re
sulted as follows: In the Senate: Plumb,
7; Osborn, C; Harvey, C; Simons, C;
Sears, 4; St. John, 3; Stillings, 2; Mar
tin (Dem.), 3; Elder, 1;" Phillips. 1;
Simpson, 1; Lowe, 1. House; Plumb,
17; Simpson, 9; Simons, 17; Sears, 12;
Tucker, 1; Harvey, 20; Stillings, 5;
Osborn, 18; St. John, 3; Martin, (Dem.)
13; Eaton, j(Dem.) 1; Root, (Green
back) 3; Phillips, 4. Five more ballots
were taken on Wednesday, in joint con
vention, the last of which resulted as
follows: Si mons, 24; Harvey, 27; Stil
lings, 12; Sears, 22; Plumb, 24; Osborn.
25; Martin, 13; Root, 2; Blair, 3; Rob
inson, 1. The friends of the promiuent
candidates seem to stick to their men
pretty generally, and it is impossible to
iorm any correct idea as to whom will
come out ahead in the race.
Li. K. Kirk, of Garnett, was born in
Mahoning County, Ohio, December 6th,
1841 ; removed to Mercer County, Penn
gylvania ; was educated in the common
schools of the county ; enlisted in 18G1
in the 100th Pennsylvania, sometimes
called the "Roundhead" regiment ; pass
ed through the grades from private to
captain ; was wounded at Petersburg ; at
the close of the war removed to Aledo,
Mercer County, Illinois; removed to
Mount Pleasant, Iowa; studied law, and
was admitted to the bar; removed to
Garnett, Anderson County, Kansas, in
1867; commenced and has since contin
ued to practice law ; was elected to the
House in 1875, and elected as a Repub
lican to the Senate in 1876.
We find the above notice of the Sena
tor from this district in tbe Topcka
Commomcealth, and only wish to add that
so far as we have observed the proceed
ings of the Legislature, Mr. K- appears
to be an able, hard working member.
He does not do quite so much talking as
some of his brother legislators, but he
attends strictly to business, and watches
the interests of his constituents closely.
The Eads jetties at the mouth of the
Mississippi, are favorably reported on at
Washington, by Maj. Comstock, who as
serts to the committee that the requisite
channel and specifications have been
reached, and Capt. Eads comes in for his
money. Ine channel is 200 feet. wide,
with an average depth of 20 teet to the
Gnlf of Mexico.
PROSPECTUS Of THE LIKK OF GEN,G. A.
" General Custer's life was a perfect ro
mance. 'His name recalls nothing but
brilliant deeds of daring and romantic
courage. He was the most splendid cav
alry officer of his time, and tbe stories
pf his charges seem much more like the
wild pictures of romance than reality.
Uniting the magnificent daring of Marat
with the splendid bravery of Ney, he
was always foremost upon the path of
glory and honor.
His career as a cavalry officer with the
ARMY OF THE POTOMAC
for the last year and a half of the war has
never been surpassed. He never lost, in
all his charges, a battle flag or a piece of
artillery. He captured battle-flags and
artillery from the enemy by hundreds.
His presentation at one. time of some fif
- ty or sixty battle-Hags1 to the War De-
partment, which he had' captured frSm
the enemy, was one of the most brilliant
epochs of the war. He was also
OUR GREATEST INDIAN FIGHTER.
It has also been well said of him, "that
he lived long enough to add to the spurs
of the Cavalry King the trophies of the
best Indian Fighter."
He went to the plains with a regiment
of mostly green recruits, containing a
large element of chronic deserters. His
great military genius blionc out at
once ; where others had failed, he carved
out a brilliant career of success. He
brought originality of conception to In
dian fighting. Instead of constantly
fighting on the defensive, and chasing
small bands of Indians he at once car
ried the war into Africa. His first great
fight was the
DESTRUCTION OP BLACK KETTLE'S BAND,
on tho Washita River. This was un
questionably the greatest Indian fight
which had ever taken place on this con
tinent. This great achievement com
pletely subdued one of the most formid
able bodies of savages which had troub
led the Government for many years.
But Gen. Custer was not only a creat
cavalry officer and Indian fighter, but
HIS PRIVATE LIFE WAS A MODEL.
Bold as a lion in the cause of truth, no
lie, or deception, or trick, to cover up
wrong and shield the wrong-doer, ever
found countenance from him. The
strictest morality marked his private
life: he never drank even wine, or
The book as well as being a most
charming personal narrative, will really
be a history of the entire cavalry corps of
the Army of the Potomac, and will con
tain an accoant of every battle fought.
This book is written by Capt. Whit
taker, one of our most brilliant profes
sional writers, and himself a cavalry offi
cer in the corps adjoining Custer's, and
will be fully illustrated with
NUMEROUS FULL-PACK ENGRAVINGS
by A. R. Waud, one of the best artists
in this country, and who was with the
cavalry during the most of the war, and
is perfectly familiar with the scenes he
portrays. A beautiful steel-plate
ENGRAVING OF GEN. CUSTER
appears as a frontispiece to the work, in
which will be found portraits of Rain-in-the-Face,
the Indian who killed Cus
ter, and likenesses of his three brothers
and nephew, who shared the fate of his
last charge. Maps illustrating the great
battles which he fought will add to the
interest and value of the volume.
The publishers of the Life of General
George A. Custer, have spared neither
time, trouble or expense to make it wor

the great soldier and patriot whose career
It will be an octavo volume of about
700 pages; elegantly illustrated Mr. A.

HOME FOR THE IMfflfiBlT
Land at Pioneer Prices Without any
of the Privations of Pioneer Life !
Among the many localities in Kansas
which offer peculiar advantages to the
Home-Seeker, Allen County, as regards
Location, Soil, Water, Timber, Cheap
Land, Convenience to Market, Facilities
for Transportation, Towns, Settlements
and Society, stands second to no other in
theState.asa brief reference to the above
mentioned particulars will show;
This county is second from the East
aud third from tho South line of the
State. It is one hundred miles south
east from Topeka, seventy-five miles
south from Lawrence, one hundred south
west of Kansas City and twenty-five
miles west from Ft. Scott and lies mainly
within the celebrated Neosho valley.
The soil of the uplands is a black or
dark red calcareous loam of great depth
and inexhaustable fertility, while that
of the bottoms is the black alluvial de
posits usually found in such localities,
aud varying from four to ten feet in
depth. No better soils for tho successful
production of all the grains, grasses,
fruits and vegetables of this latitude can
be found in the State.
The county is .watered by the Neosho
river, which Hows through it from N.
W. to S. E., and by its tributaries in the
middle aud western portion and by the
.uarmaion anu usage in the east. Each
of these streams is skirted by a belt of
excellent timber and flows through line
uuuvrai uouoins irom nan a mile to a
mile tn width. Water for domestic pur
poses is found in springs and wells ot
One of tho special advantages which
this county possesses over the treeless
plains of Western Kansas is found in
its timber, coal and stone. The average
width of timber belts is half a mile or
more, and the quality is excellent, fur
nishing a reasonable supply for all prac
tical purposes, as is shown by the fact
that the price of good hard wood in the
towns seldom exceeds 3.50 per cord. In
the eastern and less timbered portion ot
the county coal of fair quality is mined
in quantities sufficient for domestic
purposes, and will no doubt be devel
oped as the want of the cotiutv renuire.
For building and fencing stone of an
excellent quality abounds in many local
ities, yet so disposed as to interfere but
little with the cultivation of the soil.
As cjsewhere stated this county is well
suited to all tho productions of this
latitude, but is especially adapted to the
growing of wheat, com, fruit, and to
.-tock raising ; all of which succeed ad
mirably, and particularly the last. The
inexhaustable supply of native grasses
both for pasturing and for hay offers to
tne mock raiser a most inviting field, and
makes this one of the most certain and
remunerative branches of husbandry
that any one can engage in.
IC AIL ICO ADS AND MAR
KETS. The Lcnvenworth, Lawrence & Gal
veston railroad traverses the county
from north to south, passing through the
towns of Iola and Humboldt, and affords
direct connection with Lawrence and
Leavenworth in Kansas and Kansas City
in Missouri. This last is one of the best
markets in the country and is but six
hours from Iola, the county seat.
The M. K. & T. passes through the
S. W. corner of the county, touching at
Humboldt, and affords an outlet to the
mining regions of the west, and south to
Texas and the Gulf.
Notwithstanding the county has been
settled for many years and contains a
population of over 7,000, large bodies of
unimproved lands are yet for sale. These
lands belong to the L. L. & G. and M.
K. & T. railroad companies, and are
offered for sale cheaper than such lands
can bo bought any where in the United
States where equal advantages exist.
Land capable of producing twenty to
twenty-five bushels of wheat or 50 to 75
bushels of corn per acre is sold at $3.20
per acre for cash, or $4.00 on time. Al
most any year, after being reduced to
cultivation, a single crop will pay the
entire cost of the land.
During last season many parties in
this county with less than half their
land in cultivation raised corn enough
when sold at 25c. a. bushel to pay for the
whole tract. Any one looking lora new
location can not fail to appreciate this
fact, especially considering the fact that
these lands are surrounded by old set
tlements, and are convenient to railroads,
towns, mills, school houses, churches and
all the appliances of civilization. Land
at pioneer prices, without any of the
privations of pioneer life.
These lands are sold by Messrs. Scott
& Bowlus, local agents.
Tola, tho county seat of Allen county,
is pleasantly located near the confluence
ot Elm Creek and the Neosho River,
and on the L. L. & G. railroad. The
Neosho at this point only needs to be
improved to furnish good water power
for mills and manufactories. Good pure
water can be obtained at a depth of from
fifteen to twenty-five feet. It has three
churches, Baptist, Methodist and Pres
byterian, and an excellent school "build
ing. The different branches of business'
and the professions are well represented;
and property can now be purchased at a
reasonable price which must steadily
increase in value.
The Iola Mineral well is at this time
the chief attraction of the town. The
wonderful cures performed by this water
have proved that its healing properties
are second to none in the country. A
hotel and bath rooms have been pnt up
at the well, and the afflicted from all
parts of the country are coming here for
treatment; and already the water from
