THE growth of this state is shown as
much by the development of the coun
try press as any other one clement in its
advancement. With three exceptions ,
every county in the state is supplied
with local papeis. To onr knowledge
many of the little sheets on the far
frontier' hejian their existence when
there was scarcely a settlement in which
to set up the cases or a roof to protect
the old hand press from the storms.
Much of the remarkable growth of our
state has been due to the advertising
given it by the country press and to the
persistent work of the country editor.
Ile.has "boomed"new towns with the
desperation of despair , constructed
thousands of miles of railroad on paper ,
praised the salubrity of its climate in
his columns while urging cordwood in
exchange for subsciiptions from his pa
trons , and flushed with local pride has
sustained the wavering fortunes of the
community in which he has cast his lot
until victory has perched on the banners
of local enterprise. Nebraska has every
reason to be proud of her country press.
Take it as a whole , it is surpassed by
few of its neighbors. It is newsy , pa
triotic and aggressive. Its members may
abuse each other in print , but they have
a wholesome respect for the fraternity
outside of the editorial rooms. On most
questions it is consistently found on the
side of the people , and always arranged
in favor of home interests and morality
in the community. The country press
deserves and should receive warm sup
port at its home. The job room should
get the local printing instead of offices
fifty miles off. The editor has a right
to expect the confidencc-and patronage
of the community until he shows that
he deserves neither. The first paper to
be taken in eveiy community should be
the home paper. Omaha Bee. /

The use of petroleum as a fuel on
.Russian railroad lines is almost general. 1
YESTERDAY the largest freight train
and the greatest number of loaded rail
way cars ever hauled to this city and
perhaps to any other , by a single loco
motive came in List night over the Mis
sissippi Valley railroad. The train start
ed from Wilson , on that road , yester
day morning with bixty-two cars of cot
ton and two caboose cars , in which were
some passengers. Wilson is in Missis
sippi , 153 miles north of this city. At
Slaughter andEthel , the next two sta
tions on the road , eighty-eight cars were
picked up , making 150 loaded freight
cars , two cabooses and one locomotive.
Of these 134 cars were loaded with cot
ton , ten carried staves and the other
six were loaded with general produce.
The locomotive was a ten-wheel engine
with six drivers four feet six inches in
diametc.r and weighs fifty tons. Its cyl
inders are eighteen inches in diameter ,
with twenty-four inch stroke , [ t was
run on this special occasion by Mr. Ed.
Anderson , master mechanic of the Mis
sissippi Valley road. The length of the
train as coupled together , the cars stand
ing close together , was one mile and
uiufity feet , or 1,750 yards long , and
when the train was drawn out full length
the slack or play of the coupling links
and draw heads made it 235 feet longer.
The train was accompanied by Superin
tendent M. Burke of this division of
the road , and by Mr. William Marshall ,
master of transportation , and Mr. II. G.
Barrow , a clerk in the railway's freight
office in this city , 'who was telegraphed
for to check up and figure out the
freight. The total weight of freight
carried was 1.844,831 pounds , while the
gross weight of the freight and train was
5,442,831 pounds. There were 4,627
bales of cotton on board the train. This
is the champion trip , audit will be hard
to beat. rNcw Orleans Picayune.
SlXCE natural gas became so abund

that their traslights have become poorer

Last year there were 120,000,000 gal
lons of wine sold in Paris.
JAS. LAIRD , of Hastings , Neb. , con
gressman from that state , was a guest [
in this city , the first of the week , of |
his uncle. I. Beyea , and his family. The |
principal object of his visit was to see j
his mother , who has been at Mr. Bcyea's ,
for some time past , and who is in quite i
poor health. He departed on Wednes
day evening for Washington , in order I
to be on hand at the convening of Con- '
gross next Monday. Oilman (111. ( ) Star. !
IT is developed that the occasion of' '
hydrophobia among the sheep of Mr. ,
Cast near DeWitt , was the bite of a
skunk. At this time of the year the '
skunk is not only absolutely fearless , i
but seems animated with a spirit of mis- ;
chief. It ofter wanders aiound to sec
what it can bite , and whatever it finds
asleep it assails. It invariably bites
gently on the nosewith , scarcely enough
violence to awaken a sleeping man , but j
that touch is fatal. The inevitable end I
is , the most horrible of deaths. Quite a \
number of cases have occurred in the '
westejn part , , o fchis .stato in which men
have bpfjj fljus bjjten and died. It
seems that in the cas.e of Mr. Cast's
sheep the same skunlc jnuj-t have inoc
ulated most of them. Topics.
apprehension has been mani
fested in the west in regard to the scope
of Commissioner parks' iccent dccis-
siou to the effect that homestead claim
ants who had previously had the benefit
of the pre-emption cannot "commute
their homestean claim Members of
congress have received many letters on
Jhe subject indicating a widespread fear
that this decision was to be made retro
active , which would jiaye the effect of
upsetting the titles to many claims
which had passed by purchase into the
hands of third parties. Senator Van
Wyck on behalf of many of his constit
uents recently made inquiry of General
Sparks in regard to the matter and was
informed that the decision would , un
less reversed by higher authority , be a
guide for the future action of land of-
fjccf * . b.y that the commissioner was not
inclined to gv fflft ? he actions of his
prcdeccsHor.s nor interfere wilh , Jaims

respect unless fraud should be shown
to have been perpetrated in securing
