it is not rcaliv a snrin-- but an ai to- '
siau well, with a ga-pipc inserted and
the water is forced out of the pipe
about five feci above the surface of
the earth, in a constant stream an
inch and a half in diameter. This
well is now owned by Mr. John Vv".
Ogle, formerly of Andrew county,
whohasjui-t finished a very large
building and is now prepared to
board and lodge a large number of
boarders. Quite a number of persons
are here for their health, some board
ing and some camping out. This is
quite a place for amusement; there i.-.
a splendid croquet ground and there
are persons engaged in playing near
ly ail the time; as quick as one set
get tired and quit another takes up
the mallets and still the game goej
on. On last Saturday there was
grand picnic and dance, and a match
game of croquet and
id a match -jamecf
baseball near by. The base ball
game was between a club from Gra
ham, Nodaway county, and one from
Crant City, in liolt county; the Gra
ham club came out victorious. Mr.
Ogle has constructed a platform
twelve by sixty feet to dance on, and
people can amuse themselves just to
suit their tastes. A very larg-j num
ber of people were at the picnic, and
everything went oil" harmonious, for
the mineral water is somewhat differ
ent from '"live water,' in reference to
stirring up the spirit of war. The
fare for coming bv railroad from Sr.-

hire $1. and board and lodging here

j has used tke mineral water claims to j
have been benefitted, and
! manv have been entirely cured of old ,
chronic diseases bv the use of it; and !
they do u.-e it too, for several young j
men ye.-terday drank three gallons j
each, and one drank three and a half
irallons. What do vou think of that
for water drinking?
The second item I wish to notice is
in the edge of Mound City: by boring
there hit- been a iare vein of Stone
Coal found about 9l feet under the
surface of the earth: and (Jen. Jlaii, '
of St. Joseph, has an engine running, '
and hands employed who are 'inking

not be very lonu" before they reach it.

around it 3.-.exceedingly line,and with
such things a- the mineral well and
coal mine to aid it, and being situa

Jlolt ceunty before many more years.
CnOPS AND GKASSHOPPKItS.
Only a short time ago it was circu
lated in Savannah that the grasshop
pers had returned to Holt county
but there was no foundation for the
rumor. The grasshoppers did not
do much damage in Holt county this
year; of course there were some spots
in which they did do someinjury,but
to-take the county over there never
were much linrr crojis. Tlierc are '
thousands of acres of the linesi corn J
I ever saw which is now getting
hard, and a great many Holds, it is
claimed, and I believe, will ayeago
one hundred bushels ro the acre.
Yours as ever, very respectfully,

i.EPUiJi.icAx: Your valuable
paper brings good news and good
cheer eveiy time. iVo are glad to
learn that the pesky grasshoppers
have left von. but would like to know
more of the extent of their ravages.
The pota'o bugs hr.j-donc some dam
age here this year, but their day
seems past. Otherwise, we know of
no other insects doing much harm.
The harvest, that comir.eiiced July
20fh, is turning out good, and thrash
ing has been going on in places for
three weeks. The month, --o far, has
been very showery, hindering and
keeping back the harvcr t con-iuera-bly.
1 helped a Quakci gather hi
harvest, in Y'armouth. near this
lilace, who had :3o acres of winter
wheat, from which he expects GOO
bushels: 3.0 acres of barley, from which
he expects 1 ,''00 bushels: S5 acres of
oats, from which he expects 1.500 j
bushels; besides o acres of spring-!
wheat, 7 of peas, lots of apples, pears,
cherries, &e. Wild fruit is abundant
this year, and also nuts from trees of
the forest. The beech, oak, hickory. I
butternut, chesnut. plum, &c. are all
full. Some chestnut trees died thi?
summer, supposed to be from the
cold of last winter. Freights on vhc
lakes and sailors' wages have been
very low, but are now raising, and
also business on the rail roads.
So farewell again. As ever.
