ROSS COUNTY. The Climate of Nebraska.
When certain wits were abus
ing Ihe English climate Charles
tho Second declared there
was none better in Europe,
becauso nowhere could one
comlortably be out doors more
hours in Iheddy and more days
iu the year. The Nebraska
climate Is not inferior to the
English. It ha3 colder days
and hotter days, but of those
days which John Bull calls
"naely" it has not one-fourth
as many as John grumbles at
all his life long, unless they
drive him to suicide or emigra
tion. The moan annual tempera
ture at Fort Kearney is 47 7'
as appears by the government
observations. That of Chicaso
is one degree colder 4G 7
But Fort Kearney is more
than 2,000 feet above the sea
level and must be much colder
than the south-eastern por
tions. In llifse ihe mean tem
perature is 52. A weather re
cord made last winter at Ply
mouth, a colony on the Bur
lington & ilidsouri River Rail
roud shows tho maximum of
cold to have been 10 below,
and that only once, January
28lb; the mercury lei 1 below
zero on only twelve days, and
on only two days stood below
zero at noon.
The April slorm was fatal lo
men and boasts, but only to
those men that were caught far
Irom shelter, and to those cat
tle which had long been only
hall led or worn out by hard
driving. Cattle that were in
good heart weathered it,
though not under cover. The
cold was not great, nor did
snow cover the ground. Men
digging through drills in rail
road cms saw tanners plowing
at the same time. A dosen
movers turned eastward. These
were un eddy, but the stream
still held on its course west
ward. The ferryman's book at
Nebraska City shows ihe names
ot 1SS men who crossed there
within 17 days alter the tilth of
May, each in his wagon and
seeking a Nebraska home.
Prof. J. D. Butler.
How a Hotel Keeper Knows
an Honest Man.
A Now lorl; hotel keeper
has discovered an infallible
rule for determining the hon
esty ot his customers. lie
tays: "I have made it a rule
ia my house, whenever a man
wants a room and has no bag
gago to demand pay in ad
vance, as is usual. Il he man
ifests no objection and puts
hi3 hand in hi3 pocket for
money, I tell him it is all right;
that he can pay just ns well
when he goes away. That feind
of a man always pays. But
there is another sort of fellows
who, when informed of the
rule, protend to be very indig
nant, insisting that, ho is a gen
tleman ly , and is not in
the habit ol having his name
questioned or Iih honesty
doubted. In such a case I in
variably insist on the prod mc
lion of the lunds, for I know if
I don't get lliem then I never

Salt-Rising Bread.
A correspondent of the
Household gives the following
recipe for r.iakir.g saltrising
bread, which is superior to
common yeast bread, and is
considered by 6ome as moro
wholesome:
I'ut three teacups of water,
as warm as you can bear your
finger in, in a two-quart cup
or bowl, and three-fourths of a
teaspoonful of sail; stir in
flour enough to make quite a
stiff batter; this is lor the ris
ing, or emptyings, as some call
it Set the bowl, closely cov
ered, in a kettle, in warm wa
ter, as warm as you can bear
your finger in, and keep it as
near this temperature as possi
b!o. Notico the timo when
you tisel" your rising; in three
hours 81 ir in two tablespoon
fuls ol flour, put it back, and
in five and cue-half hours from
the time of setting, it will be
within one inch of the top ol
your bowl. It is then light
enough, and will make up eight
quarts ol Hour; make a sponge
in the centre of your il ur with
one quart ol water of the same
temperature as rising, stir the
riiing into il, cover over with
a little dry flour, and put it
where it will keep very warm,
but not scald; in threo-lourths
ot an hour mix this into stiff
dough, if water is used, be
sure it is very warm, and do
not work ns much as yeast
bread; make the loaves a little
larger, and kepp it warm for
another three-quarters of an
hour; it will then be ready to
bake. While rising this last
time have youi oven healing;
it needs a hotter oven than
yeast bread. If these rules are
followed, you will have bread
as white as snow, wiili a lijdit
brown crust, deliciously sweel
and tender.
Fight Over A County Seat.
Richmond, Im, Oct. 29. A
mob of disguised men, sixty
strong, attacked a party of
seven Deputy Sherid's guard
ing the jail at Centorville
which workmen are tearing
down to remove here to the
new county seat. After one
hundred shots from small arms
without serious results, a six
pound cannon loaded with
spikes, nails, and scrap iron,
was fired at the doors, which
being demolished, the mob oc
cupied the Shenfl's residence,
which forms a part of the jail
building. Afier a parley, the
deputies surrendered condi
tionally. Thirty men occupy
the jail to night, when another
attack by a large party with
cannon, from Cambridge City
is expected. Richmond is
threatened with an attack, for
the purpose of taking the
county records back to Center
ville. One hundred armed
men, with the captured cannon
f.oin Centorville, are now here
awctidng the Sheriff's orders.
The act reducing the duly
upon imported pig iron from
nine o seven dollars a ton took
effect on the 31st day of De
comber, 1870. Number one
foundry pig was then worth
thirty dollars a ton. It remain
ed at and about that price dur
ing January and February,
1871, and then took a turn up
wardj and rose constantly until
it reached filly-three and sev-en-eighths
dollars, in Septem
ber, 1872. The average cost to
consumers was thirty-five and
one-eighth dollars. The aver
age ol IS72 was f -rty. eight and
hpven-eighlhs, and the average
lor tho current year was nearly
us high. The reduction ol dut
did not cheaj en iron. Whet li
er it made it dearer or tint, it i
clear that the government has
lost a million dollars upon im
ports subject to the reduction.

"Died With My Face to the
Foe."
A writer in the Louisville
Couiier Jonrnal tells the lob
lowing story of the rebellion:
A sinnle 6hot followed by rt
loud shriek told us lint one of
my best men. Bradley, wns)
hurt. He proclaimed his
ony with a loud voice, turned
over on his buck and com
menced lo kick 6o vigorously
that the surgeon had c nsider
able difficulty in getting near
him.
"Foor fellow 1" said the doc
tor, "I om afraid it's fatal."
And ho coinmenctd cpeung
his coat.
"Oh, my Godl" said Bradley,
"I'm a dead man."
"Keep up your spirits, my
boy; never say diel" said Capt.
Johnson, kneeling kindly over
him.
"Doctor," asked tho wound
ed soldier, feebly, "will you
wril3 to my mother and tell
her that I dud bravely doing
my duty with my face to the
foe, and that I thought of hor
when djin?'
"Yes," said the docfor, willi
dim eyes and a husky voice, 'I
will write to her nnd tell her,
to
"Bui," suddenly springing to
his feet, with an indignant
voire, ho said:
"Why, confound it, man,
you're not hurt a bit. If a on
ly your canteen lhat's 6Lot.
Gel up, will you?''
Bradley raised up slowly,
fell himself all over with an ex
ceeding foolish counlenancr,
and crawUd buck to his posi
tion amid the uproarous laugh
ter of the whole regiment.
For months alter that, on tin
march and in the camp, anl
sometimes In the stillness rt
Ihe niiiht, j o:i would hear ,u
voice in ono direction demand
ing: "What shall I tell your
mother?' And perhaps half
dozen responses would bj
heard:
Tell her 1 died with my
race to Ihe foe,"and then Brad
ley would come out and hunt
for the man who said it.
He seldom found him, but
when he did there was sure to
be a fijit.
A pnoit Turkish slafer of
Constantinople, being at woric
upon the roof of a house, lost
his footina nnd fell intn tho
r.irrow street upon a man.
The pedestrian was killed by
the concussion, while the slater
escaped without material in-
j'lry. A son of Ihe deceased
ciused the slater lo be arrest
ed. The cadi listened atten
uvely, and in Ihe end asked
the slater what he had lo say
in his defense. "Dispenser cf
justice," answered ihe accused,
"it is even as this man say?;
but Cod forbid that there
should be evil in my heart. I
am a poor man and know net
how to make amen. Is." The
son of the man who had been,
killed thereupon demanded
that ooiulijrn punishment:
should be inflicted upon lb
accused. The cadi meditate!
a few monvnts. and finally
said: "It shall be so." Then
to Ihe slater he said: "Thou
shall stand in the street where
(he father of iliis young man
stood when thou didst Tall on
him." And to the accuser ho
added: "Thou shalt, if ft please-
bee, go upon the root and fait
upon the culprit, even as ho
ell upon thy lather. Allah be
praised."
