Nine Miles west of Ashland,
Neb., August 30, 1873.
Our last notes were from Lud
low, 111. Since then we have been
on considerable of a jaunt througl
Illinois, Iowa and Nebraska. Leav
ing Ludlow on the 18th, wo came
to Peoria, via the Indiana, Bloom
ington and Western road, where we
arrived at 2 o'clock next morning.
Being behind time, we were com
pelled to lay over three hours; then
took tho Chicago, Burlington and
Quincy route for Galesburg, where,
luckily, we made close connection
for Burlingtou, arriving there at
about 9 a. m. Here time was given
for breakfast. Tho inner man be
ing satisfied, a forward movement
wan made across the plains of Iowa,
via tho Burlington and Missouri
River route (the noted old reliable),
reaching the Pacific Junction at
11 p.m., two hours behind time,
The only alternative left us was,
either to go to a hotel near by, or
bunk in the station-house till morn
ing. Went to tho hotel, bjjt found
it already full; however, a comfort
able bed was tnado upon the parlor
floor, and sleep would have been
refreshing had the long-billed, long
legged mosquitoes been less thirsty
for blood. We fought them brave
ly, and !:ept them at bay until day
light, when we arose just as the
sun gilded the horizon on the ea?t,
aud its bright rays glimmered over
a vast prairie.
At 9 a. m. crossed tho Missouri
river aiui unmet i at iiausinouin.
Here we found a cousin, in the per
son of Mr. Jacob Datesjian, dealer
in tobacco and cigars. At his urg
ent request we stopped over till the
next day. In this place wo found
several former residents of McAr
thur. George Stinchcomu, former
ly typo in tho Enquirer office; also
his father, who is located hero in
the practice of law. Tlatte river
empties into the Missouri at this
point, which is tho largest stream
within the State, and, with its nu
rncrous tributaries, waters a most
fertile part of it. Plattsmouth is
the county town of Cass county,
and exhibits considerable thrift and
enterprise flue brick business
blocks, elegant suburban resides
ces upon the bluffs, two live news
paper offices, the Watchman, dem
ocratic, and Jleiald, republican.
The only detriment to the town, in
our estimation, is that tho location
is too bluffy for n town of great
proportions. A fine school build
ing, In the modern style of archi
tecture mansard roof, etc, is just
being completed, and is located
upon a high bluff west of town. It
makes a very showy and prominent
appearance. Our stay in Platts
mouth whs onjoyable and pleasant,
and it could not bo otherwise when
it Is known that we subsisted upon
the richest and fattest that the
town afforded. '
On tho morning of the 21st we
departed for Ashland, thirty miles
west, via tho Burlington nnd Mis
souri railroad, iu Nebraska. Ar
rived at our destination at 1 p. m.
Wo found this town overflowed
with farmers' teams some unload
ing wheat; others arriving with the
yellow stuff, whllo hundreds of
teams were hitched, waiting their
turn. Every bam, Btable, vacant
house and wood-shed was being
converted into a granary for wheat,
until sufficient rolling stock could
be secured upon the railroad to
transport it to market Seventy
five cents per bushel Is the ruling
price, and a constant stream of
wheat is flowing to tho .different
stations along tho line of tho rail
road as fast as the threshers can
Well, by the assistance of a
friend, we found a team that was
going by our father's residence in
the country; but on the way out we
chanced to pass tho residence of
our sister, and here we were pre
vailed upon to stop over night and
rest, and get home on tho morrow
refreshed. Wo took her advice.
Next morning, ourself, family
aud baggago wore conveyed across
tho prairies to "the old folks at
home," whero a generous welcome
greeted us on all sides, after a lapse
Since our arrival here it has been
extremely hot and unpleasant, too
hot for a pleasant visit ; yesterday
tho thermometer stood 102 in tho
shade. High! how we did sigh for
some of the shade about McArthur.
Tho cxtrcmo drouth and heat, thus
far, has' not affected the corn and
tho yield will bo an average one.
The wheat crop is quito largo. The
farmers have just finished the most
bountiful harvest yet reaped in
this productive Stato,
But wo are growing lengthy end

Of course wo are enjoying our
selves. Wo arc in the buggy every
day, and "Fannie," the gentle, trus

of nineteen, lias conveyed us in
safety to every point of the com

A Nebraska Cow at British Cattle
Two or three years ago, J. E.
Jones emigrated from England to
Canada, but found no farm quito to
his mind till he reached the Biff
Blue in Nebraska. He was too late
to obtain Government land near
Crete, and so ho bought an im
proved farm, to which ho added
various purchases from theBurling
ton and Missouri River Railroad,
bo that ho now has an estate of
To give friends at homo an idea
of his new purchase: Mr. J. last
year shipped to Liverpool a cow
raised on praino grass and never
fed with any other food. This
creature was exhibited in various
British fairs, where she was much
admired, and afterwards brought a
round sum when sold for the bene
fit of the poor in Wrington the na
tive parish of Mr. Jones.
Seeing is believing. Hence every
mail brings letters from John Bulls
to Mr. Jones, saying that they are
also determined to try theirlfor
tunes in tho unknown land from
which ho has sent such an Eshcol
cluster. Some have their capital at
command, bo that they can come at
once; others must wait to sell out
a lease or for it to expire, but will
send out boys, or friends to make a
beginning. One man asks : "Can
farming tools be bought either in
Crete or New Tor hi" This in
quirer will seo more than one car
in the freight train which follows
him to Crete filled with agricultur
nl implements, and in Nebraska
City may inspect a plow factory,
which ali neighboring farmers hold
to turn out a better article than is
brought iuto the Stato from any
other quarter. Besides, in the last
repoit of tho chief of tho Washing
ton Bureau of Commerce, it is sta
ted that during 1872 the declared
value of the mowers, cultivators, etc.
exported from the United States was
about a million and a half ($1,547,
413,) and that of these tools, $273,
711 worth were exported to England.
Mr. J. however, advises his friends
to bring with them one article,
namely, a chain harrow. Ho bids
them not to be faint hearted if their
capital is small, since they can buy
railroad acres for a less sum than
their annual rent, or annual outlay
for fertilizers, at home, and that
on ten years credit, six per cent,
interest, nothing of the principal
payable for four years, and with a
deduction of twenty per cent, as a
bounty on prompt tillage If they
buy in 1873.

About sixty wagons are now en
