hia old home to await his re

t the hands of the Indians,
uear Fort Dodge, Kinsas. lie
was out locating lands when
he was attacked by Little Crow
and six other Indians, his leg
broken and skull fractured by
blows Irom tomahawks, scalped
and left tor dead on the field.
Little Crow first attacked him
for the murder of his father
and a band of Indians in Min
nesota, by a parly of whites
eleven years since, mistaking
Lurge for one of the number.
After laying on the field four
days he was found by soldiers
from Fort Dodge, who had not
ed his absence and, and were
in search of him. The affair oc
curred last October. It was
four months before the wound
where his scalp was removed
began to heal, and even at
this late day it is still sore, and
much inflamed, and about the
ugliest looking wound we ever
Wk neglected last week to
noie the accident which result
ed in the dnath of Mrs. Thom
as Brewer, on Monday ol last
week. She had started from
Z tleski on the railroad track to
walk home, about two miles
from thai place. She stepped
off of the track to let a train
pass by her, but was drawn in
towards the train by the cur
rent of air, slipped, or became
dizzy, and fell against the rear
car, Iracluring her skull near
the temple, i eeull ing in her
death in about an hour after
the accident. Site was about
thirty-five years of age, and
wa9 a lady universally respected.

Ihk Concert given last
Thursday evening for the ben.
efitof theM E Church, by Mrs
W. V. Lawrence, Misses Una
and Ida Row, Dr. J. L. Dunlap
and daughter, and Herbert
Holland, was well attended,
and the audience highly de
lighted with the music of the
perlormerj. Mrs. Lawrence's
lull rich soprano voice led the
club, Miss Ida Row sustaining
the contrrho, Mr. Holland the
tenor, Dr. Dunlap the bags,wiib
Miss Llna Row presiding at the
piano. The music furnished by
the club, and solos and duetts
by the members were faultless,
and Mios Row's performance
on the piano exhibited that
rare skill, ease and delicacy ol
execution for which she is no
led. Altogether it was the
greatest musical concert we
have listened to in McArthur,
and far ahead of the profession

visited us. The audience was
highly pleased, and in their
behalt and of those having the
concert in charge, we are re

ALLENSVILLE, O. Aug. 26,1873.
Our village this morning was
the scene of considerable ex
citement occasioned by a pair
of horses attached to a two
horse carriage entering tovvn
from toward McArthur at full
speed. It was immediate
ly seen that there was no driv
er and the cainage and horses
literally covered with mud
Our citizens ut once used their
best efforts to impede the prog
ress of the frightened horses
and before they reached the
western boundary of town they
were compelled to halt, when
some ol our citizens at once
recogn zed the rig as belong
ing to Mr. Fox, of llamden.
At once two of our citizens
leaped, into tiie carriage mak
ing the runaway team cover
their tracks made in their
flight. When . a .hall mile eas(,
ol town they found something
in the shape of a man lying in
the road in a beastly state of
intoxication, with his broad
cloth all saturated in mud and
filthy water. When the un.'or
tunate creature was taken into
the carriage Irom which he had
fallen, ami brought to the Farm
ers Hotel where the frightened
team and the inebriated, un
fortunate creature was fitly
cared lor, by the landlord pro
fusely administering the vir
tue ol Divines linament, and
after the latter had lain in this
state for eight hours, and na
ture had gained its supremacy
it was ascertained llti.t our ua
tortunate guest was a represen
tative of the house of Ander

Railroad at the Vinton county

and 1 six horse plow teams.
It is expected work will be
commenced at McArthur in a

to that point Wednesday, and
more tools will follow soon.

Farming in Western Texas.
The Galveston News speaks
enthusiastically of the profits
nt agriculture in Western Tex
as, and says :
Every year's additional ex
perience confirms us in the
opinion that the droughts for
merly so much complained of
in Western Texas are becoming
less and less frequent as the
country is settled up, and as
the prairies are becoming ttore
and more timbered or covered
with a rapid growth of mesquit
or chapparal. In fact, we be
lieve Western Texas that is,
the country between Colorado
and San Antonio has suffered
as little from droughts during
the past ten years as any State
in the South. The crops hare
generally been good, and the
labor of the Western farmer
has been remunerated with
good crops. Indeed, we believe
farming has been subject to
more drawbacks in the North
J l-a. I"! . a '"(. a
em auu western states irvan in
Texas from droughts, excessive
rains, late spring and early fall
frost, storms, iunundations,and
other casualties. Taking into
consideration the great length
of the farming season in Texas
extending almost through the
the whole year, a? compared
through the very short season
at the North, there is not a
doubt but that it will be eu
tirely within the bounds of
truth to say that the same la
bor here is rewarded with more
than twofold the remuneration
it receives at the JSorth.
