No other country on the face of the
earth can boast of a climate to com pare
with western Nebraska and eastern Color
ado. During the past winter only twenty
days were cold enough to distinguish a
difference from October weather in Wis
consin or Illinois. No storms occurred
similar to what was'experienced in eastern
Nebraska and the eastern states. Other
winters for the past twenty-two years were
almost exactly similar to the one just
passed. Plowing was successfully done,
even to breaking prairie, for at least sev
eral days during every month of 1837, and
wheat was sown in January of the present
year. Farmers calling at this office report
from five to fifty acres of plowing accom-.
plished, and in many cases spring worj
about half done. Beef cattle are brougi

A Serious Accident.
Ab Frank Ford was driving rapidly on
Sunday about eight miles north of town,
the coupling ot the buggy suddenly
parts;! and the horses dashed away with
the front wheels, leaving the occupants
imprisoned under the remainder of the
vehicle. They soon extricated them
selves with only a few bruises. In the
mean time the horses dashed down the
road at a fearful rate and after running
aboilt two miles, overtook a buggy occu
pied by L. Calkins, who being somewhat
hard of hearing did not observe the
approaching teum, until it had crashed
into the buggy. The collision was a
terrific one, completely demolishing the
DUSgy and throwing Mr. Calkins some
distance to the ground. He was. carried

for. It was found that he had suffered a
serious fracture of the shoulder blade be
sides a numer of minor cuts and bruises.
Mr. Calkins is near 70 years of age, and
perhaps sustained more injury from the
nervous shock than from the actual
wounds- His case it serious. Broken
One Way of Looking- at it.
The shrewdest investors in Nebraska
real estate are beginning to turn their at
tention to farm lands, which have been a
good deal neglected during the past four
years and are away behind in comparative
value . It is a fact that no intelligent man
will dispute that farm lands are now
cheap that they may be had below their
actual worth, ut less than their intrinsic
value. The reason is plain. Our econo
mic S3'stem, that compelsour farmers to
sell their products in the cheapest mark-,
ets in the world and buy in the highest,
has had the effect to depress the value of
farm lands and farm work. That there
will be a modification of this system to a
greater or less degree admits of no possi
ble doubt. The least relaxation of the
iron clad restriction upon agriculture will
at once be followed by a rise in the value
of agricultural lands. A complete eman
cipation of the farmer from the burden of
the the tariff would make him as he
ought to be by virtue of his calling and
his position a. the foundation stone of
society the strongest mi
richest, the most in
time immemorial he.

A farmer in Madison county thinks' he
has found a sure preventive against the
death of hogs by the so-called "cholera."
He explains it thus: Between the front
teeth and the grinders there is a space of
two or three inches, and in this space
under the gum of every diseased hog will
be found a pocket of poisonous substance.
To remove this, take a cold chisel and
hammer and cut this bottle of poison out.
He says that previous to adopting this
device he had lost 73 hogs, but since
adopting it he has not lost a single hog,
and those of his neighbors who have tried
the same operation.report the same favor
able results. As everything else has
proved worthless, it certainly will not be
very expensive to make the experiment
