Republican City, Neb., 1
Ed. Chbosicle: I find in your
issue of June 11th, a letter from H.
D. Niles, of Gibbon, this State, in
which the gentleman has evidently
mistaken my intention. I did not in
tend to cast any reflections upon his
letter that, he has written to the
Chbovicle ; but what I have eee"h of
the Piatt Valley, and from what I can
hear of. It, his descriptions are quite
correct, and it is a very desirable place
to live. ,
t Hr. Niles In his letter does not
claim to have ever seen the Republi
can Valley, and I do not see where
gets his authority for the assertion
that the soil on the Republican is in
ferior to that of the Piatt; when the
contrary is the fact The soil north
of the Piatt is good, but the south
aide bottom lands are very sandy and
the uplands for ten miles south of the
river are nothing but aand, and -are
worthless, and Sir. Niles Is the first
man hat I ever heard of that claimed
the Piatt Valley to be even equal to
that of the Republican. He also
states that the Republican Valley Is
verry narrow. I can show Mr. Niles
where the Republican Valley is only
eight and ten miles wide, and he can
not show me where it is less than
two miles wide.
Mr. Niles also tells that it will
probably be five or six years before
we will have a rail road, if the neces-
capital be forthcoming. In reply I
would say that the necessary capital
is ready and that the road will be
built within one year. So I am in
formed by very good good authority.
The agents of the rail road are now in
the valley looking after the Interests
of the, Is to be, rail road. '
He also informs us that we are out
of humanity's reach. In this county
there is a settler on every quarter sec
tion of the valley, and some of the
high Prairie is taken and more of it
is being taken, their being no R. R.
lands here it is all settled by actual
sellers. While on the Piatt River one
half the lands are R. R. lands and
consequently are not much settled;
and I am ' ' Informed by those
that claim to know, that we have
more settlers on the Republican than
there is on the Piatt Valley. Also
that we have three towns in Harlan
county, that either one of them is
twice the size of Gibbon."
The gentleman wants to know
where I was during the storm of the
13th of April, when half the cattle
was killed and many of the horses
and mules, and every body scared half
to death.'-' Perhaps ' the : storm was
dreadful on the Piatt River but I
was not writing for tha; part of the
country, it was the Republican that
I represented. Tet a storm did com
mence here on the 13th of April.wind
and a little rala in the evening, not
enough to mention, and anowed du
ring the night continuing three days,
and during that very hard s term I
hauled and cut my own wood.'. Three
of my neighbors were out on a hunt;
they drove fifteen miles home with a
load of meat, on the worst day. There
were several parties from this vicinity
oat hunting and camped out during
the storm, none of them died nor did
they loose any stock. One man here
bad about foity head of cattle (half
starved) fifteed died, another about
two hundred bead, lost fifty-five;
Another about twelve hundred head
and did not loose any. No cattla died
during the storm that were taken care
of, and I have heard of none being
lost that had enough to eat But half
starved cattle would probably have
I think the trouble with Mr. Niles
was that he was badly scared. But let
ane assure him there Is nothing in
this country that will hurt him, and
that first class mechanics and profea-
aional men are doing well herein the
.Republican Valley. But there is
plenty of snobs out of employment
Aa Mr. Niles tells you, plenty of
.money is a good thing in this coun
try, I shall have to agree with him
there and I would say that none but
"brave men should come to this coun
try with or without money, for there
ia a disease in this country . called
home-sickness that proves almost fa
tal In some cases. But if a man has
plenty of grit and a little Yankee
shrewdness', with money enough to
keep him one year, he is sure to make
money, and in a few years place him
self in aagy circum stances. But men
come to this State with but tittle
or no money and do well, yet they
are exceptions. There are very few
that the climate will not benefit or
that will not enjoy goodhealth If
they are only contented and do not get

INITIATING A MINNESOTAIN.
INITIATING A MINNESOTAIN. He Visits His "Country Cousins."
' A ctrtain city chap, wlio.to be suffi
ciently personal to make our story
interesting, we will imagine once
lived leas than one hundred miles
from Warren, but who now resides in
that portion of Minnesota where
mosquitoes disturb not the peaceful
slumbers of the weary, desiring to en
joy a ahort season of rural felicity,
determined upon paying his cousin a
visit, whos. residence happens to be
in a wild,sequestered spot overlooking
the tranquil waters of Mosquito Creek.
This he accordingly did.
Whether the following graphic de
scription was written for the purpose
of depicting the incidents of this par
ticular visit or not, no matter ; it tells
the story welL - . -
The day of arrival passed pleasantly,
and as the time for retiring drew near
our country gentleman assigned the
"spare room" to his friend, and bid
ding him an affectionate good night
retired to rest Now the tuneful mos
quito, whose exclusive possession of
the region above mentioned, has been
established by a seeming lez loci right,
has had his trombone reconstructed,
and begins the new season In animat

night the slumbers of the country
cousin were disturbed by an Incipient
earthquake up Btalra, Hastily , don

guest's room, from whence the nproar
came.-When that unbridled individu

the window to draw uutrameled
breath and preserve the idea of his
native freedom. The moscuito, scent
ing foreign produce from afar, whet
tea up his knife and fork upon the
stone window still and humming a
short grace before meat took a chair
upon the Minnesotain's nose and
tucking nis napain unaei nis cnin,
set to work. The sensitive foreigner
said an ungentle thlngabout the musi
cal bird or nignt ana, springing from
his couch, struck a light to meet his
unseen adversary face t fate. No

But to no effect, for so qui-kly had
the intruder gathered up his traps,
and so silently Btole away that the

more unsuccessful attempts ipon the
poor mosquito's life exaspertted the
gentleman and the scene beeune ex

succession as the irate victim danced

THE BOY WHOSE MOTHER CUTS
You can always tell a boy whoe.
mother cuts his hair. Aot because
the edges of it look as if it had been
chewed off by an absent minded horse I
tut you tell it by the way he stops on
the street and wriggle bis shoulders.
When a fond mother haa to cut her
boy's hair, she ia -careful to guard
against anv annoyance and muss by
laying a sheet on the carpet It has
never occured to set him over a bare
floor and nut the sheet around his
neck. Then she draws the front hair
over his eyes and leaves it there while
she cut that which is at the back.
The hair which lies over hia eyes bb
pears to be sar-charged with electric
needles, and that which is silently
dropping down under his shirt band
appears to be on' fire. She has unconsciously-continued
to push hia
head forward until his nose presses
his breast and Is too busily engaged to
notice the snuffing sound that is be
coming alarmingly frequent. In the
meanwhile he ia seized with an irre
sistible desire to blow hia nose, but
reccollects that his handkerchief is In
the other room. Then a fly lights on
bis note, and does it- so unexpectedly
that be Involuntarily dodges, and
catches the points of the shears in his
left ear. At this he commences to cry
and wish he was a man. But his
mother doesn't notice him. She
merely thumps him on the other ear
to inspire him with confidence and
goes on with the work. When she is
through, she holds his jacket collar
back from his neck, and with her
mouth blows the short bits of hair
from the top of his head down his
back. He calls her attention to this
fact but she looks for a new place on
hia head and hits him there, and asks
him why he didn't use hia handker
chief. Then he takes his awfully dis
figured head to the mirror and looks
at it ud, young as he is, shudders as
be thinks of what the boys on the
street will aay.
An illustration of Irish simplicity
is afforded by the reply of a young
candidate for the offloe of teacher.
The examiner was endeavoring to
elicit the candidate's Idea of the mar
ket value of labor with reference to
demand and supply ; but being baf
fled, he put a question ia this simple
form : "If there are in your village
two shoemakers, with just sufficient
employment to enable them to live
tolerably, and no more, what would
follow If a third shoemaker set up in
tbe same village ?" . "What would
follow, air?" echoed the candidate,
"why, a fight to be sure."

ment, -mmo, I can't ride, but I ean
sit tight in a shay, ''no such very con
temptible boaet; but tbe first three
miles lay along the great Calcutta
road, which is, I believe, the finest
iu the world, and runs all the way
from Pesbawur to Calcutta. The
moment we left this, we were bump-
eu, auu oauerea, ana joitea ; now
toning through deep sand, now wa
ding through a portion of the road
which lay under water, and then
straining the spring of the dog cart by
a sudden jolt over a miniature mud
canal, which carried water across
from one field to another. Whenever
the Instinct of self-preservation left
me free to look anywhere but on the
road, I took in all the unfamiliar ob
jects with keen delight Carta made
use tne old Koman chariots, with
thick, clumsy wheels, drawn by oxen,
and surmounted by little "howdahs"
made of scarlet cloth, with one or
more natives inside in gayly colored
turbans and dresses,, sitting cross
legged in a cramned rjosition imrjosai-
ble to Europeans ; great heavy footed
cameis, witn stupid, ill tempered
looking laces, one or them with a
tiny little one lying in a basket on its
mother's back, and followed by
another young one, tne most ungain
ly creature imaginable, like a badly
made ostrich on four legs; patriarchal
looking groups of men, women, and
children,-driving flocks of bullocks
and goals, and looking as Abraham
and Isitao might have done. What
is this these two long legged natives
are carrying between them suspended
from a pole? It looks like a scarlet
oonoonniere, a sort of bag, the bottom
or which la flat and about the size
of a 6 o'clock tea table. And It con
tains a Hindoo lady, probably on
her way to pay a visit, though how
that bag can contain her is a mystery
to me, unless indeed, she is lying
coiled round and round, aa only these
little dark skinned daughters can
coil themselves, and in this position
tney sometimes perform long jour
neys without fatigue.
One is disposed at times to suppose
tnat their bones must be gristle, and
their joints India rubber. - They nev
er sit in any position except on tbeir
neeis, wnicn seems to anora tnem
perfect rest nd it is marvelous to see
the rapidity with which they move
up and down, their feet touching each
other, without putting their hands to
the ground all the strain and spring
Demg in their backs and Knees. Tne
women attracted me most, bv their
graceful carriage, their picturesque
drapery consisting of a full skirt and
a sort of bournous, which passes over
tne neaa, almost completely veiling
the face. Thpm varv in color, beln?
sometimes bright blue, and pink, and
yellow, the skirt often bordered with
a hem of some other color, often very
gaudy, but tbe dark skin harmonizes
it all. The most artistic to my mind
ia the deep indigo blue, but it is more
rare in the Northwest than in South
ern India, where almost all the lower
class of women wear it It is pleas
ant to watch the easy grace with
which thev walk, bearing round red
earthen-ware or bright copper water
jars on -their heads, steadying their
Durden with one well shaped, small
wristed dusky arm stretched up to
its full length, and covereu almost to
the elbow, and sometimes above it
with numbers of bracelets. These
are sometimes silver, but oftener
dated metal nr red and preen lac. I
once heard of a school, toe pupils In
wbich ;were, trained to walk about
with tumblers of cold water on their
heads .-land when I saw the firm foot
ed, easy grace of these burden bearing
women, l regretted tnat tne practice
was not .universal. The pale faced
race may perhaps pride itself on its
superiority in the use of the contents
of its head, but these dusky daught
ers of the un certainly out do their
more favored sisters in tbe use they
make of the outside of theirs. They
carry everything on their heads ; jars
or water, pioces or cloth, baskets or
vegetables, huge ' bundles or sugar
cane, fuel, anything and everything,
leaving their hands free for any addi
tional burden. They do not even
carry their little black babies In their
arms, bnt either balance them astride
on their shoulders with their little
hands on their mother's head, or elso
astride on one hip, encircled with
a strong arm. I have seen a woman
with four water jars towering on her
head and her little baby on her hip,
walking along with springy grace,
ingling her silver anklets and toe
bells as she went

nowhere more so than in Ohio, where

GRACE GREENWOOD AFTER SENATOR
A Sharp Review of His Speech—Congressman
and Government Clerks—
Grace Greenwood, in a New York
Timet letter has the following caustic
review of the speech of the Wisconsin
Senator, which cuts clean and deep:
Mr. Carpenter's elaborate defsnse
or tbe Credit Mobilier affair and th
"back nav steal" caused a ripple -of
sensation here. Some are of the
ODinion that It settles the question of
the morality, justice and propriety of
those disputed matters conclusively;
and so it does on a Carpenter basis.
Others say tbe speech Is full of sophis
tries and quibbles of a befogging and
pettifogging character, and that In its
special pleading and dernagogiszn is
alike unworthy of an able Jurist and
an honeat statesman.- Allow me to
supplement your admirable review of
this speech by touching on a point or
so wnicn you uia not reier to. : v nat
strikes me most forcibly in the clever
defence, If defence it can be called,
which seems more a defiance,: Is the
purely mercenary and merchantable
view which the eloquent Wisconsin
Senator takes of his high position and
grave public duties. Honor seems to
count for little with him, patriotism
far less. According to his estimate, a
Unitedtates Senator Is miserably paid
even at $7,500, because with the same
outlay of ability and energy he might
make more at the Bar, or in banking,
or railroading. Forensic genius, the
divine gift of eloquence, Is a marketa
ble commodity, to be sold to the high
est bidder. A great theme Inspires it
no more than a big fee. He argues
upon the assumption that the Senate
ia composed exclusively of picked
men, whose Intellect, wisdom and
culture represent the consummate
flower and the perfect fruit of Repub
lican institutions men who could,
therefore, command In their various
callings and professions tbe highest
pay for their executive and oratorical
abilities. There may be gentlemen
who make social and pecuniary sac
rifices in coming to tbe Senate ; but I
believe there ate very few of thia sort,
and these manage to console and re
compenae themselves some by an
honest old-fashloued sense of utiriot
ic service; some by the gayeties aud
parades of thecapital ; some by Credit
Mobilier and other speculations, and
some by a large and lucrative practice
in the Sunreme Court for Which they
cooly take the time popularly suppos
ed to belong by contract m tneir con
stituents. Mr. Carpenter states that
he eannot rent "a decent lamisned
house in Washington for less than
$3,000, Now, peoples' Ideas of decen
cy in architecture and upholstery,
vary strangely. I bavo known a Cab
inet Minister pay a tar more -modest
rent than that and yet live not only
decently, . but with comfort, the
modern conveniences, and something
very like elegance and refinement ,
But to be sure, he was a rare .entle-.1
man, and his surroundings took.' on,
decency and dignity . from him. He
did not stay long fn offlee. .Really,'
luxurious living. liveries, and fine
turn-outs are of much less consequence
even in Washington, than Jenkins
and Jeemea would have us believe.
Brains still count here, and character
we Etba.; A noble private me still
does more for a man than many din
ners, and one great speech in the Sen-'
ate cheers the heart more than tbe
choicest wine. It has a "bouquet"
to it that does not vanish With tbe
quaffing. The glitter or plate glass
ana gilding sneas no giamour over
thejudgment or tbe people. Their
representative's habits may concern
them, bat not hia habitation. ' .
Nor do I believe that the voting of
even a large increase of pay.lncluding
back salary, lor tnemseivea, , wouiu
have shocked the public sense of pro
nrietv and eoiittv so severely If those
gentlemen had not so coolly and un
generously refused to grant the mod
est increase asked by the humbler but
not less deserving servant oi tne gov-
ernment . Many a second class clerk
is a man of as good birth and breeding
as tbe Senator front Wisconsin, has
as refined and gentlemanly tastes,
has aa dainty an eye . for dress and
upholstery, would like to drive as last
horses, and smoke as choice '. cigars,
and drink, if drink he must,, as good
wines, but he has to content niniseu
with his meagre salary and . do bis
best to rear hia family decently and
spare something lor tne claims oi
charity and religion. Not much I
fear. If it U hard for a Senator to be
a good Christian on to.000 a year,
what are a poor ciera's cnancea ior sal
vation on $1,400 T By the way , It struck
me as odd to hear Mr. Carpenter. In his
grand peroration, appeal from .the
"sickly morality" that condemned
the selfish injustice of the salary vote.
and the meicenary greed of the Credit
Mobilier nag, to what ne caiiea. 'tne

At Grand. Junction w . left the

the newly elected member from the

ways managed to haye at least one
mountaineer character in Congress ;
and Crutchfleld, the latest 1b said to
resemble Crockett more la originali

little man, with foxy hair and whis

homespun suits, a good deal frayed at

well-greased cowhide brogana that,

the "Crutchfleld House" al Chattan

INCREASE OF PARALYSIS.
" It wUI probably be nothing new to
our readers to say that a wide and
anxious interest exists all . through
the country, and especially the Mid- J
ate buw, uvui.ww uaeu suu
steady ineroaso of paralysis, apoplexy,
and the various forma of brain and
nervous disease. The Springaeld
Republican aaye: Vice-President
Wuson has passed Into that stage of
health which Mr. Chase so long occu
pied paralytio invalid, to whom
fife la of the most uncertain duration."
On which the Washington, Evening
Star comments as follows: . .
- -"We noted some time ago the
alarming fact that bo many promi
nent men wero-bemgatrlokea down
with paralysis) and the case of Vioe
Prealdent Wilson; i adds - another to
the long list then presented, which
embraced the narcea of Chief Jastioo
Chaser, Senator Morton, Mr. Colfax,
Senator Brownlow, Walt Whitman,
Horace Greeley. Ac The cases of
prominent publlo men attract- more
attention, but physicians aay that
paralysis is notably on the increase
among all etaase of the American
people. - The question risea if it is
getting to be a national disease ; and
if so, tbe cause or it
i'ln France or Paris, where paraly
sis is getting to be a familiar disease,
the causa has been attributed to a life
of excitement the use of absyntho,
Ate. . But It will be noticed that tbe
larger portion of our paralytica are or
temperate and unruffled, lives. Mr.
Colfax has always been of temperate
habits, and, at the time of his attack,
nothing had happened to disturb the
sunny tenor of hia life, the Moollier

from hia superb manhood." ....
Willing to aid in calling attention
to the enormons Increase of paralysis,
wo can pot agree with tbe'no special
reason"' theory referred to by tbo
Washington Star. ; The truth 1, of
course, that the cases of all those par
sons, in private, on public station,
"singled out" ia the midst of appa.

irpnerallv tha result of a aeries of

COVILLE COUNTS HIS SHINGLES.
There are men who dispute what
they do not understand. Mr. Coyllie
Is such a man." When he heard a
carpenter aay that there were so many
shingle on theroor or hia house De
canae the roof contained so many
square foet Coviiie doubted the Eg
urea, aud when the carpenter went
away he determined to test the mat
ter try going up on theroor and count
ing them. He squeezed throagh the
scuttle Coville weighs 230 endthen
sat down on the roof and worked hia
way carefully and deliberately tow
ard the gutter. When he got part
way down, he heard a sound between
him and the shingles, and became
aware that there was an Interference,
someway, ia hia further locomotion.
Ho tried to turn over and crawl back.
Dut the obstruction neid him. Then
he tried . to move along a little, in
hopes that the' trouble would prove
oat temporary, . put - an increased
sound convinced him tnat ettner a
nail or a sliver had hold of hia doth.
and that if be would save any of it he
must use caution. . Hia folks were in
the house, but he could not make
them hear, and. besides, be didnt
want to attract the attention of the
neighbors. ' So he sat there- until af
ter dark and thought It would bavo
been, an excellent opportunity to have
counted the shingles, but be neglect
ed to use it His mind appeared to
run into other channel . He sat
there an hour after dark, seeing no
one be could notify of his position.
Then he saw two boys approach the
gate from the house, and reaching
there, atop. It waa light enough for
him to nee that one of the two waa
his sou, and although he objected to
having the other boy knowing of bis
misfortune, yet he bad grown tired of
holding on to the roor, ana concluded
he could bribe the strange boy Into
silence. With thia arrangement map-
oedout.he took out bis knife, and
threw ito that it would strike near
to the boys and attract tbeir atten
tion. It struck nearer than he antici
pated. :.Ia fact it struck so close as to
hit the strange boy on the head and
nearly brain mm. as soon as ne re
recovered his equilibrium, he turned
en Cbville'g boy. who. he waa confi
dent, had attempted to kill him, and
introduced some aatonishment and
braise in his face. Then be threw him
down, and kicked him in the side and
banned him on the head, and drew hint
oyer into the cutter and pounded hia
legs, and then hauled him back to the
walk again and knocked his head against
the gate. And all the while the elder
(TovUiasatonthe roof and screamed for
the police bat otraldn' t get away. - And
then Mrs. Gov ill 8 dashed out with a
broom, and contributed a few novel
features to the affair at the gate, and one

has just come to light . JeanervUle
is situated in Penn Township, Chea
ter County one. mile north of the
uneof the Baltimore Central Railroad.
- On the 30th of June last a strange'
man arrived at the hotel of the village
and took up hia quarters, saying he
came from Baltimore and was an agent
but gave no name. He was in appear
ance a young man, probably not over '
thirty, with black whiskers. On the
following day a team driven by Wm.
E. Udderzook stopped at the tavern,
and the agent and Udderzook took a
ride. ' He accepted- the invitation, and
then they went away together. . Tbe
team had been hired by Udderzook at
Parkersburg, and when he returned it
in the evening the person who took'
charge of it remarked there was blood
on the wagon. Udderzook made a
plausible explanation of the circum
stance, and immediately left the -neighborhood.
The strange man was '
never afterwards seen alive. '
. Friday last a large number or bu
rards were noticed hovering about the -woods
off the Newport and Gray's
pike, between Cochranville and Ben
nlngtonviile. An investigation show
ed the head and trunk of a man, and -the
armo and legs detached, which
were recognized as the body of the
stranger who had been stop
ping; at Jenhersville. A . Coron-
er's jury waa impaneled, and a sealed
verdict given. The murdered man
was stabbed in three or four places.
Hia throat was cut, and both arm3 . '
and legs were severed close to his-body : -Udderzook
can. not. be found. He is, ,
or was-uatiiately, on the Baltimore
police force. He is young and has red
whiskers. The object or the murder- '
er unquestionably was- plunder. 1 No
clothes were found, except m pair of -shoes.
It la reported , that the. man :
was known to have considerable mon
ey on his person. Several limbs were
buried in a separate spot from the body
and not far from ' the house of one

posed murderer. . ,.,
