We have Dr. HNhop's word for this very extraordinary claim one which might seem to some, absolute ly impossible to substantiate. IXASMi't it as the Kansas City Timr admits tliat Thurmau cannot carry Ohio as that state is always lost to the democrats during the l'reldeutial year will that paper please tell us in what way the Na tional ticket is strengthened by Tliurnititi's nomination? If the Jte imbliraiis nominate their candidates from both New York and Indiana, the ticket will be invincible. Aud they will do it. They will take ad vautageof the neglect of the Demo crats in this resieet. ItAXl.AXXATllfHMAN has given up his favorite idea of a "seat in heaven" to accept one chance in a huudred to become vlce-l'resldent. Perhaps we might ssy. that he haB "stolen tlie livery of heaven to serve the devil in.

He will bein the liinoeeuous desuetude once or twice referred to by the gentleman who furnishes the intes tines Tor the ticket, and for whom Thurmau stands usher in the brain business. Wk notice that in some recent in terviews the Kansas delegates to the liepiiblicati National Convention are quoted as being very free as to their choice for the Presiden cy should Mr. Hlaiue's name not be presented. This expression of choice on their iart Is contrary to the spir it of the convention which elected them. Tliey were instructed practi cally to stiport the man who Is mot acceptable to the "doubtful states," and that wan caunot be de termined uon with certainty until tlie Convention shall have met. If the delegates cannot obey their in structions they should .surrender their commissions to the (tower which ereated them, and allow such successors to be appointed as will fully understand and carry out the Instructions ef the convention. A Democratic Bewspaierof Kan sas says that this campaign will not bea jxtmhhj one as It-was in ISSf; that people are tired of personalities, Ac, Ac; and yet this same news paper was one among the number to greedily retail scandal concerning Blaine's early career. Where "per "onsJIty" should commence aud where it should end In politics is net yet fully determined Even if the candidate no matter how high the position may be is a habitual drunkard and has whisky blotches on bis nose as big as the spots on the moon, it Is not considered fasldonable by these sticklers about pertonalUiet to have the fact men tioned. If this same drunken bloat abases his wife when drank, and ebe is on tbe point of separation on ac count of his cruelties, It is still un fashionable to seak of the the mat ter; but to point him out to the world as a great and good man pure aad Irreproachable ia charac ter seems to be the chief end of the aforesaid sticklers. He may be as loathsome as satan la ils private life, aad fill tbe sight THUKSDAY, JUNE with orgies which would beeeme rather a party of baeehanU than the sons of men: yet it is only his public record we have te deal with if we are to follow the guWaaeeof these thin-skinned critics. Are we to regard a man's private leeerd? Or are we to shut onr eyes and iro It blind on everything except hi jmb llc record which If be does Hot happen to have, necessitates that we should take him as we would the medicine prescribed by the physl cian, and about which we know nothing. DlVERSiriKD KAKMINU Experience taught the Kansas farmer long ago that a diversity of farming was as absolutely necessary on the fertile prairies or this state as in other states. The farmer who has wheat, corn, oats, sorghum, sweet po tatoes, castor beans, Irish potatoes. etc., In his fields.aud horses. cattle, hogs.sheep, aud poultry iu hlscorrals and about his barns, nevercoinplains much about the profit of farming iu Kansas. He is prepared for any kind of a year, and manages to keep the mortgage off his property. In tilliugthe soil it Is possible for auy farmer to attain that diversity or crops so much desired. In the ac cumulation of stock it may take years for the ordinary farmer to suc ceed; but succeed he must in the end. d kuow of farmers who years ago began paying attention to raising a diversity or crop, aud tit day they are iu comparatively eay clrcumstauces. There is not a year but what they realize some proHt from their llelds, ami if tliey fail iu one cereal they have something or another and are thus able to weather the gales of crop failure in rcasoubly good shape. Thorough farming is another absolute necess ity for the Kansas husbamlniaii to engage In. "Tickling the soil" and mammoth crops do not go hand-in-liaud auy longer. It Is as much a necessity to be thorough going tu Kausas farming as in otlicrstates -if it is exvec(ed to be Very successful. Shiftless farming and shiftless farmers have done not a little to bring on some of tlie deplorable fail ures we read aud hear of. These facts have been written of lw- rore, but they have not become sufllcieutly impressed iim the farmers to bring aliout that diversi ty or farming which is so ahsolulely es.eiitial to complete success. TllK nomination of Allen (i. Thur mau for Vice-President is about oti a par with tlie general poiieyofan ad ministration noted for its incon sistency. It was a "great civil ser vice reform administration" to em inence with,' but no one issosiliy as to claim that for it now-. In tlie begiuuing the President seemed to study how to snub Thuriiiaii on every occasion; now becomes for ward aud tlrmiiHfU his nomination for the second place. No boasism about that. Shades of (.Irant! that "imierial boss" whom the Demo crats used to howl so much alKHit. Uraut ill the palmiest days or his "Caesarlsm" never was one hair so bold or dictatorial as to denraud who should be his compauiou on the Presidential ticket. If he was a I aesar, he was satisfied to let the will of the people dictate such mat tersnot himself. Clevelaud has made up with the '-noblest of 'em all" iu a mauuer as abject as the (ettiest iolitlciau could assume; but what is he going to do with the man Uray, of Indiana, w-ho was tlie real choice of the Democracy until Doss Cleveland interfered in Ids su preme iower! Gray and his Hooier frieuds do not go home witii the best of reelings toward the boss, and in making up with his enemy Cleveland may have lost thousands of friends who will speak their resieclive minds ou election dav. The Olobe-Demoertit Is no doubt a thoroughly reliable paer, but the following observation made in its columns, may bring its reliability into question: ". W. C. Itohrer, or Abilene, one or tlie most promi nent or Kansas Democrats, is a Thurmau advocate." Mr. Itohrer has an elephant In the shape or a controlling Interest iu tlie (iaztlU property, and he cannot "let gn." Haviugsuchan interest aud at the same time being the proprietor or a Republican er: tlie Chronicle places him In thesigniar (tositlon or riding two political horses at once, aud as a consequence his (tolitlcal attitude is variously construed by those who do Hot understand the clrcumstauces. ISut we happeu to know that (icorge is a prohibition, Albert-tirilliii, dyed in tbe wool Republican, who voted first, last and all the time lor the "Griffin Idea" at the Wichita con vention. George's Democratic pro clivities are measured solely by the trade which will relieve him of the cumbersome, unprofitable (lutrtlr property. In behalf of George we "deny the allegation and denomi nate the alligator a liar." The grasshopper of the Itoeky Mountain variety has appeared by tbe million In Minnesota, as the following dispatch Indicates: St. Paul, Minn., June 9. Rumors of grasshoppers In Otter Tail county, have been confirmed by an investi gation Just completed by Professor Luier, of the state experimental farm. There are millions j ust hatch ing out In the neighborhood of Per ham, and not only that, but already msny of Uiem ire big enough to jump. Professor Luier says there are a number of large townships which are now literally alive with hoppers. They aretbegenuineRocky mountain variety, the kind that did such great damage a number of years age. Tbe professor says that four car loads ef material hare been purchased for shlptnent to Perham to be used iu an endeavor to destroy the pests. It is said that If a dwelling was built on every lot sold in Los Asge los during the last two years there would be houses enough to accom modate 2,000,000 people Exchange. We hare heard a similar estimate made with reference to Wichita, and the result reached was that 1,009,000 people could be accommodated upon tbe Wichita territory. 14 1SSS. ixthe sujtxr sotrni. Almost as far baek as I eaa re member I have read and dreamed or the South. I was born at a time when the roar of the oppsing arms was at its height, and the war smoke ef contending armies bung most por tentously upon the national horizon. When, thererore, "pecuniary liabil ities, over which I had bo control" compelled me to leave college, for a snort time, the South, with allur ing finger, beckoned me to her borders for lucrative employment, and It was with a mind full of pleasant anticipations that I accept ed the invitation aud turned my face southward. Securing a through ticket te Ileus ton, Texas, over the Mo. P., I start ed forth to see the new South. We passed throurh Council Grove, Osage City and Ottawa, Kausas, aud arrived at Harrlsonville. Mo., about 10 o'clock at night. I saw but one uruubeu tuati from the time I left home uutil I got into Missouri. Since that time I have seen many men beastly drunk. At noou the next day we left HarrisoHville an d passing through the cities of ilutler aud Nevada, Mo., aud Fort Scott, Parsons ami Oswego, Kansas. We entered the Indian Territorv just as the failing light of day gave t4aee to the colli clear beams of a full moon. Hour after hour we sied through tills bleak, desolate tract oi country now through a scraggy belt of timber, and auou over a broad waste or rolling prairie. The night was clear as crystal and intensely cold, and the "telegraph jioles, and their shadows clearly risibie in the wliite Moonlight, look ed ghostly as we Hew jmst. Our stops were snort aud far between. Vluitaaiid Muskogee, little towns or from l.uuu to l.5uj inhab itants, are the only points of signifi cance ou the M. K. A T. in the Ter ritory. Fifty or seventy-live miles iroin i ne jexas line we entered a heavily timbered country aud I have been in the woods ever since. At l:li in the morning we reached the border town of Deiiison. a rail road place nf li,i0J inhabitants. Here tlie festive -owboy, the reck- less raiiroaiier, tiesiicraUoes and half-breeds, from the Indian Terri- lory.niect iu happy conviviality aud drink the dreary hours away. The place is noted neithir for itety nor sobriety. Eight churches are brave ly breustiug tbe tide or iiil.juitv Mowing from thirty-three saloons. After a stop of eighteen hours I jot fully Imarded the train and pursued my way southward. I'he entire distance from Denison to Houston lies through a heavily wooded country. Hour alter hour we passed through magnilicenl forests or pine. Stately, verdant and straight as an arrow these beau tiful trees lose sixty, seventy, some it seemed to me nearly a hundred feet toward tlie sky. I had never before seen a pine forest so of course I was greatly pleased with the view. Palestine, a beautltu! town or 0,UIU Inhabitants, is the only place of im lMirtauee between Denison ami Houston on the line over which I came. Aftr three nights ami four days or travel 1 finally reached Houston somewhat the worse for wear. I confidently exiected to Ie greet ed by a smiling southern skv when I arrived in southern Texas. Rut Texas must either have had her leellugs deeply wounded, or els my advent into her borders brought lo!gtiBUt sorrow to her lulghty heart, ror I was greeted by a weep ing sky, and it continued to weep diligently tlurintr my entire sojourn there, aud iu raet was still engaged iu the same melancholy employ ment when I bade It a loug farewell ou tlie last oi .Marcli. Houston is quite an energetic citv with a -topulatisu ol .1o,000. The colored and foreign elements com ose more than one half of the poi ulatiou. The proportion of or Ger mans is very laree. The Italians are also quite numerous, in Hous ton, as In nearly all the Texas cities, the western aud southern civiliza tions are closely blended. There are a great many northern people there, aud the business activity of tlie city is largely due to their influence. The features that stamp it a southern city most prominently, are: the large ier ceut of bruuettes seen uitou her utreets these bru nettes, by the way. are or a decided lytic; the broad avenues aud ample lawns, fragrant with the lerfume or many flowers, aud verdaut with gra-s, shrubs and evergreens; the airy, rambling, many galleried houes; and the general air or indo lence aud lassitude that everywhere tills the atmosphere. In the North everything is tense. In the South everything is relaxed. Houston is a railroad center of some Imjiortance. Her clilel industries, outside of her rialroading interests, are mercantile, commercial and manufacturing. There are two large cotton seed oil mills iu operation, eatable of em ploying about two hundred hands each. It is wonderful the way the cotton sceed is utilized. 1 was shown through one of the mills bv the obliging engineer. Every pro cess, from begiiininr to end, was carefully explained to us. The cot ton seed, which "be fob tile wall" was an unmitigated nuisauee to the planter, is now used in a score of different ways ami remunerates the producer scarcely less than the cotton Itself. It is used to feed rat tle, make Imtter, lard, fuel ami med icine. I'he refuse makes a very fine fertilizer. We sjieut a very 4ea aiit hour in looking through this wonueriui mill hlle at Houston I took two trios! muhh iu x.aixesttfH. iiere it was that I took my first view of the salt ami boundless deep. It was a rare sight to me. I walked along the beach two or three miles, gathering sea shells and watching the white eain chase each other to the shore. It was beautiM, it was grand, solemn and magnificent. 1 was very much interested Ih the oeeaa steamers and full rigged foreign shis. I investigated them from stem te stern and from hold to cross tree. Galvesten is a beautiful elty much more so than Houston with long, straight paved streets aad clean, white, many piazzaed bouses. It has a population or -10,000. I should like very much to describe it more fully, but time forbids. Since tearing home I hare seen rain and sunshine: forest and hill: field and flood; but when I forget uiee, on iueen ot tue main, my ewa glorious, matchless, transceadaat Kansas, "Let my right hand forget her cunning.

IICM Rssrllle ha been stirred from center te circumference the pat week by a strange freak la tbe me teoric world. Oh Monday night at about e'eleek a most brilliant light was seen by many to shoot across the sky at apparently but a shert dis tance from tue earth. Of course the flicker of light was like a streak of lightning, and as the skv was heavi ly veiled with clouds, 'nothing un usual would have Iisoh tknuplit of it had net the Hash bees Immediately followed by a tremendeous report that sent a thrill of terror through every -eron bearing It and created a general staniede ainvttg the brnte creation. Many of our citizen were so thoroughly terrified that they did not retire for the night, but sat up and watched, expecting that some awful calamity was impending, some firm'y asserting that they ex (ected to bear Gabriel's trawiet ieal forth at the midnight hour, while others believed that some awful eon lllet of the elements was about to take plt.ee, which might be followed by devastation and death among the tribes of the earth, and all were unanimous in the opinion that the Hash and rciH.rt w ere harbingers f some great disturbance in the ma terial or sjiirlual world. Tbe peoide watched thoughlc.itt the remalnlm; hours of the Might: some prayed, some sang sweet hyni of praise to the Creator, others indulged in care less and wanloa conxersaliofl, while there were those who empim-ed their time in icarne f chaHce ac.l sipped the red liquid of destruction In adarkartic, poibiy on Attica street. When the hours of morning approached, the brat est men were seul 'Hit in squads to reroHWdlre and report to the lerilted eodc. A long aud arduous search availed nothing, and the fear of the -op. lace gradually subsided and by Tues day noon scarcely a remembrance remained or the previous night's awful experience, exept that a gen eral drowsiness (Mwailetl. At two in the afternoon Mr. V. N. Truth, a most w-orty and exemplary ritiseH or the woo. i "west art of the Tillage, came up town. He looked most w-retclielly old. his clothes were torn as ir a charge of electricity had passed through .hem: bis fair, u -tally of a brilliant an burn, was a while as the driven snow ; his count enance bore the marks if a mt awM! struggle with the unseen and unseeable, and his voire sounded like the wall from the gravevard. Otir tieople were frightened at their neighbor's woe-begone aiperaHcr, ami they lielieved that he had been violently dealt with the previous night, and that the being they then beheld was an apparition front the darkness of Han.les. Finally he suc ceeded in convincing some' of the most courageous that he wit-thelroU friend ami neighbor, and that he had a fearful story to tell that would far outrank the tale of the Ancient Mariner, while it contained ttothiHg but the guaranteed truth. Oh the following Hight, as be was en-rons-ced 1h hist lien most happy home, his beautiful wile sitting by bis siile doingsome trivial w.rk; his eldest (laughter bending over her book at t lie ta ule t r 1 H g t.i sol ve a problem Ih algebra, while his oldest sen was toying witli a IkmiJo: and the young er kids were soundly sleeping in their l-eds suddeHtly a Hash .if Iheht was seen ami stmulUHteotly a .leaf eiiing sound was heard and nothing more was knowH until a few minutes before he started for t.iw n. wlteH be aroused from tlie spell, and found the remainder of his family jift reviv ing from the -hock, i-or some mo ments tliey were so wholly and com pletely liewildered that no recollec tion of the past could be brought to mind. Everybody and everything about the house hail a most weird and hideous apiearauce: the hair of the wife and children had turned lo an aialtaster whiten ami their countenances were iiHeH iminful to behold. Ah exploration was made as soon as the good people hud mily regained couseieusiie, with the most startling ami terrifying results. In the iront yard about twenty feet from Mr. Truth's front door there aiqieared a jagged hole la the ground nearly six feet in diameter aud three or four feet deep: in tto bottom of the hole was a huge rock of undoubted meteoric formation, and or rough aud irregular surface. Fragments of stone were to be found ail over the vicinity, ami here and there were pieces of lava, still hot. The earth for several yards around was burned completely bare of every vestige of vegetation : "the trees were as bare as in midwinter ami were charred as if tliey had pa-eed through a mighty c indagation. The atmosidiere iu the vicinity was heav ily charged with suldtur ami brim stone. Several head of tattle ami hogs near by were killed and many others injured. The occurrence has no jiarallel iu the history of sponta neous meteoric actios, ami has created great Interest among scien tific men everywhere, many of whom are now oh there way to visit the scene of destruction and Hot a few of them have already seen. Va rious theories are advanced iu expla nation of the idieuomeaoa, but an satisfactory conclusion has yet beeH arrived at by scientific mea. As to Mr. Truth's family, there is said to be no boie that tliey ean ever fully recover from the results of their horrible. exerience. They all re semble greatly the eaes of the lepers as described in IteH Hur. the flesh nf their faces ami bodies being ghastly with huge fissures, Ih many places so deep that the bone Is exposed. Their sorrow ami a At let inn Is so great that no etmsohtttoH can to extended that will comfort them, and only death can relieve their horrible suf ferings. Kun.a. Timber. ii..w,ik. i. There wa a time when Kansas was a treeless plain. That was about three decades age. It Is no longer that. Kansas now has over MMjinft acres of thrifty timber, with about 3u,f aeres or recent dantinc;, which, in ten or fifteen years, will make good timber. The farts de Btonstrate that with proper care ami cultivation, timber ef all kinds will grow in Kansas, as well as Ih the states east ef us. All that is needed i to tdaat the trees seed ami cut- things, watch aad protect them, and, in a comparatively brief period they will bare grown to a respectable size.
