Ore fields of ice and snow,

Oh ! -who teould think of dying,
Or even getting sick !
I wudk^ot dye in spring-time,
And miss the turn-up greens,
And the pooty song of the little frawgs,
And thc skylark's early screams.

When the turk sys go a gobbling,

Vyben evcrthing's so hot,
And leave the whiskie j ewlips :
.Grivet know ! IJdt ruthcr knot.
1 wud knot dyo in autumn,
With peaches fit for eating?
When wa? kora is getting ripe,
<fe kandidates are treeting.
Phor these and other reasons
I'd knot dye in the phall ;
& sense I've'thought ft over,
Courlis ? in Nebraska.
A Nebraska correspondent of the
Syracuse Standard writes as follows :
" There-is lack of woman's nursing,
There-'is dear?i of woman's tears."'
t Certainly- not because they are un
necessary-in this Western region, but
the fact ls the women are scarce and
men are plenty. In market phrase
the woman " demand far exceeds the
supply^" ? Those inexorable laws of
supply and demand, about which
political and other economists delight
to talk,- have not yet corrected this
acid creation. A heavy dose of girls,
none of your honicepathic prescrip
tions,-is-what Nebraska needs, and
the stomachs of her young men will
always remain sour until the supply
come. You have no idea East now
anxious young men in this region are
to marry. In the words of a prairie
farmer,11 courting hot."
The poor man is passing through a
bitter expe -ience. A party of us
were duck-hunting the other day on
the Missouri bottoms. Night over
took us before we were aware of it,
and we were obliged to seek lodging
at the lirst dwelling we could find.
It was a small one story structure of
three room-, and occupied by a fami
ly of six-father, mother, daughter,
and three sons. The sons were all
tinmarried, and from the calls that
were made afterwards, we judge the
daughter w-s unmarried also. Wc
hadn't been in the house five minutes:
when some kind of a vehicle drove
up, and two young men were ushered
into the parlor. Straightway the
mother and daughter'held a whisper
ed consultation, which closed with an
invitation to the sitting-room for sup
per. It was evic.ent the young men
callers had been to tea, as they staid
in the parlor with " sweet sixteen."
Scarcely had we taken our seats at
the table when a howl from the dogs
out door3 announced another comer.
He seemed to avoid the front door,
and knocked at that where our party
was just sitting to supper. The
mother rose to answer the summons,
when we were surprised hythe daugh
t.. opening the parlor door and rush
ing forward with " don't get up,
mother! Its one of my fellows!
Come in, Jim ; how do you do ?"
And Jim entered in response to
the cheery salutation. He made him
self as comfortable as possible till we
had finished supper, when another
whispered consultation proved that
the " parlor is full as it ort to be,"
whispered by Miss in response to
some motherly suggestion. Thc old
gentleman solved the question by in
viting us into the kitchen tb smoke.
It is evident that Jim didn't smoke,
' for ho remained in the sitting room.
We should have doubtless enjoyed a
quiet segar had not the old lady
opened the back door, and shouted at
the top of her voice : " Come 'round
here to the back door !"
It was another young man, and we
fancied he looked as if he had come
iu rather late. Two young men
within the parlor, one in the sitting
room, and one in the kitchen. What
should bo done ? Tho conrting busi
ness was getting hot! There was
another talk between motlier and
daughter. It was evident their de
vices had been exhausted. The old
gentleman was called into the comer.
He settled the question with a whis
per: "I'll be damned if I'll move
again till thc Bettin' room's full !"
Into the sitting room went number
four, aud we smoked. It was full
ten minutes before the next, disturbe rs
came, and they entered thc kitchen
with the air of old acquaintances.
We looked anxiously at tho host.
Talcing his pipe from his mouth, a
single sentence relieved its:
"Thom's the widowers! Stick!"
"And wo stuck" anti s m o iced on.
For the next half hour the girl rnu.?l
have been kept busy. The widower*
had certainly a third cf her time. I:
was nine o'clock. We wished t" go
to bcd, and the only bed we had dis
covered, was in the parlor*. Thc ubi
gentleman divined our wishe.-, and
" I'm sorry, gentlemen ! lint .?.;.
is o::e of the regular court in' nights '.
Them two fellers in the parlor nevci
leave afore midnight and t lie widuwers
allua stay all night. And that ain't
the worst of it. Dan'll he here at
ten o'clock! land the boys alltu
sleep in the haystack Friday nights
Yer welcome to that !"
The pallor, sitting room and kitch
en fall, we retreated to the haystack
In response to a question on the point
the old gentlom-tn said that
"Friday night it's purty bad, bul
Sunday it's wuss. Last Sunday nighl
there was ten on 'em, and the girl i.<
getting nrjrc and more partikiler
The more she gets the more sh(
On the haystack, with a stiff breeza
driving away the mosquitoes, w<
heard Dan drive up. One of the las:
remarles of tho old mun before w<
fell asleep was, " Yes, gentlemen
courtin's hot in Nebrasky !" And w<
Too LUCKY.-" Hans, where yoi
get that knife?"
" I finds him, fader."
" No, Hans ; I believes you tell;
one big falsehood."
" No, fader ; dat is true ; I is tin
luckiest boy you never ?ee."
" Veil, Hans, I has to vip you."
" Not cause I steals, fader ?"
" No, Hans, I vip you 'cause you
so very lucky."

Fall and Winter Dry Goods !
WHICH, in EXTENT, VARIETY and GENERAL CHEAPNESS, we intend shall
surpass anything we havn ever hud the pleasure of showing our customers.
And, in addition, we take great, pleasure in saying that wo have gone to great ex
pense in fitting up our present Sales Rooms, by adding another Building forty feet
deep, and from cellar to top five stories high, throwing all in one. Thus giving us an
abundance ?f room for the display of our stuck, and adding greatly to the convenience
and comfort of our customers. Private Rooms have been added on the first floor,
where Ladies from a distance can find ret i remen t, refresh themselves, and arrange
their toilet without the necessity of having lo go lo a Motel.
This is a want which has long been felt, and wc have no doubt will be appreciated.
As to the other arrangements of our establishment, every comfort and convenience
for our customers whilst making their purchases, also for the successful carrying on of |
a large WHOLESALE and RETAIL TRADE, has been well studied and carried out.
The first and part of the second floors will be used for retail purposes, where will be
kept all the NOVELTIES of the season, and of which we will not speak now, as our
reputation for keeping a first class STOCK OF DRY GOODS suited io the wants of
all classes, and at thc lowest prices, is too well known, but we cordially invite all to
call and see what we have to show them this season, and judge for themselves thc
great advantage of having a large stock to select from. Also, the great advantage of j
plenty of room and good light, where thc who":: can bo seen to the best advantage,
and at prices as LOW as the LOWEST.
The second, third and fourth stories of our new Building will be used for wholesale
purposes, where we will oiler to CASH BUYERS a stock of Goods well suited to the
wants of the Southern trade, and at prices as LOW as the LOWEST. We hope
wholesale buyers purchasing in this'market wiil give our Stock an examination, as
we know it will be to their interest to do so.
