Judge David Davis,
To Iht IJtlUor of Tht Tribyne.
Normal, Hl.,,May JB.—ln your Issue of the
20th ot April, under tho head of “ David Davis,”
commenting on that gentleman's late speeches
in the Senate, you say the people of Illinois re
gard tho Judge “as one of the richest as well
os one of tho stingiest men of tho State”; to
which statement 1 desire, with your permission,
to take exceptions through your paper.
In a Journal ordinarily so truthful uml so free
from partisan mid personal bitterness, I am
both sorry mid amazed to flud you using such
language In regard to one whose donation* of
money and property tp Stale Institutions alone,
—as I happen well to know,—of a charitable
and educational character, amount to many
thousands of dollars, to say nothing of other
donations of a more local and private character
which, 1 have good reasons for believing and, la
many instances, of knowing, have been very
large mid very libera). The poor of Blooming
ton, Its public library, mid Us numerous
churches Dove placed quite a different estimate
upon the man. Whilst they do not regard nim
by any means as one of the richest men of tlm
State, in anr Just nr practical sense, they do re
gard him us a kind-hearted, humane man, and
one who has dune much to alleviate human
suffering lu our midst, and to advance the public
good.
lie may not thunk me, —amt most likely wilt
nut,—but I cannot forbear giving on Instance in
which the poor of your cltv also wore the recip
ients of bis bounty, rendered too at a mast op
portune time, uml on the spur of the moment,
which are the best tests of a benevolent pur
pose. When Chicago wus a smoking, smoulder
ing ruin, mid thousands of its poor people
turned homeless Into Its streets. It wus this big
hearted, well-abused man who immediately
summoned many of us to his cilice,
when and where ho proposed to raise
not less., than SIS,(XX) for the Chicago
sufferers, one-tenth of which tie not onlv cheer
fully ami thankfully gave, hut worked as no
oilier man did or could to raise that amount.
It wus stated soon after, and so far as 1 kuow
not contradicted by any one, Unit no city in the
civilized world contributed ns liberally to the
Chicago sufferers, In proportion to Its copula
tiou, us did IJioomlngton; mid verv largely, ns
our people well kuow, through ids Influence.
It wus he who headed the call fur a
public meeting on this subject, presided
oyer it, made the' loading speeches of
the occasion, portrayed in living colors the
sufferings of the hodr, mid, in short, threw bis
whole soul into, the work of raising the money,—
never resting for a moment until it was uu ac
complished fact. It does seem to mo that were
the poor of your city as well posted us some at
least of your leading citizens on this subject,
they would 'not indorse mi aspersion so
unjust., Your criticism, too, allow mo
to say, upon his career os a Judge is
os unjust as. is your caricature (for it is onlv
that) ot biro ns a mini, lie retired from the Bench
with the full confidence of. the people of all par
ties, and a very high estimate of his Judicial fit
ness for the post ho had tilled on tint part of the
whole Bar of the country, of which the
public, in various ways, have abundant evidence,
as indicated by Bur meetings, the newspaper
press of Uie country, etc.
8o far as the oolillcs of the article In question
is concerned, I havo only this to say: that
1 was gratified to learn—quite lately, on
my return .to the State—that my old
friend, tiie senior editor of Tits Tbiuonb,
was nut at Ills post when this attack was made
upon the Judge, for, whilst he might well differ
as to both speech and vote commented upon,
lie has studied not only /» « characler but that
of Mr. Lincoln's quite too well to Indorse what
you have said in this connection. As one know
ing the luttey quite well fur mure than a third
.ot u century, and having, in a small wav, some
ililng to do In presenting his namo as a proper
and available candidate for the Presidency, 1 cer
tainly do know that his estimate and yours of
the character and qualifications of Judge Da
vie, both as a man and as a Judge, are ns di
verge as Um poles; and such, I mil clad to know,
is the settled conviction of intelligent minds
throughout the country.
At all events, you havo surely studied Uie
character of Mr. Lincoln to illtle effect not to
know that iu thus assailing his most intimate
ami confidential friend you do great violence to
those kindly mid genial feelings which so dis
tinguished the martyred I’resklent.

At Tccumseh, Johnson County, thanks to the
courtesy of Mr. W. H. Bowman (formerly of
Jcrsoyvlltc, III.), Secretary of the Ncma Valley
Lund Company, 1 was enabled to enjoy a pleas
ant drive through the country, und visit some of
the farms,—apiong others that of Mr. Carring

Conn., who is giving considerable attention to
the breeding of flue horses. He has some thirty
well-bred mares und cults, besides some line

I have given Urn above in order that your
readers might understand that sumo attention
THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE
Is paid here toother things than the raising of
“ nog* and hominy.” Mr. M. V. Ensterduy has
quite ft number of line Short-Horn cuttle. and
Is breeding Berkshire hogs extensively. There
arraign quite a good many Durham* in this
county.
Table-Bock, m Pawnee Countv, is principally
Doled fur the stone curiosities found near by,
and the legend connected therewith. There is
an Immense rock—supported hv a column—
which was said to have been used hv the Aztecs
is an altar upon which were sacrificed the vic
tims of their Idolatry. The legend Is Unit, long
before the conquest of Mexico, this section was
occupied hy the Aztecs, who were noted for
their advanced state of civilization. One of
their customs was to select n beautiful ami
chaste maiden ns a sacrifice. She was placed on
a high rock or altar, bled to death, and then
burned. This was a proplllntmy offering to
their God. A maiden tliun sacrificed had
n lover both bravo ami noble. 110 wun
absent at the lime, but, upon his return,
was greatly grieved when the intelligence was
conveyed to him. Ho almost lost hi? reason.
After a time hu apparently recovered from the
shock: but bo secluded himself from the Court,
mingled with the peasantry, mid finally raise I
un Insurrection against the Emperor. A misrhty
army was equipped, and, headed by the Em
peror himself, went out to meet the rebels.
Upon the eve of a nattlo a parley was held. The
Emperor amt Pueblo met half-way bet ween the
two armies, when the former said: ”0 I'ucblol
formerly my most devoted servant, why bast
thou rebelled a?nln*t thy sovereign) Speak!”
“0 Sire I thou askest why I hive rebelled
against thee, and it is (It that 1 should answer
thee. 1 rebel against thee because thou host
sacrlflcad thu light of my eye, the Joy of my
soul, the maiden whom X love, to the Idol. 0
Sire, I have sworn hv thu blood ot that sacrifice
to bo avenged. 1 have sworn to dcstny every
city, hamlet, ami hut hi this beautiful Taller,
and leave hut one single retie of Us present
grandeur. O Sire I I have spoken.” The bat
tle then commenced. TheJ slaughter wan ter
rible. f'uohlo was defeated and'compelled to
flee the country. IJe returned, sowed Urn seeds
of another insurrection, won again defeated,
captured, condemned, and publicly executed.
After his death a guerrilla warfare was up,
cities were burned, and the* people fled. The
rebels continued - their pilaging and burning
until Pueblo's oath was fnlllllcd, and what had
been a heautltul and prosperous country became
a desolate wilderness.
For the Incidents of the foregoing I um in*
dcbted to Mr. if. >l. Allen, publisher of the
AVw Wat Jlonihhj i -~n very readable magazine,
in which Is the legend is lull, anil much other
useful and entertaining matter.
Fails Cltv, Uichardsou County, Neb., about
tUty miles from Atchison, Is one of the oldest
towns In the Slate, it has a population of
nbout 1,800. The Nemaha litver furnlsiics good
water-power, and there are quite u number of
lino llourlng-mllls here. The arrival of live
Chinamen created quite on excitement, ami the
feeling against them among a certain class man
ifested itself tn threats to burn down the house
which they wore occupying and fining up Jura
laundry; nut. as one of the Chinese carpet-bag
gers had deposited SO,tX)O In the hank, ami an*
other one S7OO, there was a disposition among
the majority to let them remain,—at least until
they had enent tiieir money, tine of the hard
ware and tinware merchants, who had sold them
quite an outfit for their laundry, was very much
pleased at their cumin#, and would bare been
glad to have more of ilia same Hurt. Tw oof
them were well educated, and could speak En
glish with case.
Elm, walnut, hickory, and other timber
abound in this section, and the streams are
lined with as heavy a growth as in Oldo ami In
diana,—adding additional charm to the country
for those who prefer a “ wooden country ’’ rath
er than the prairie. The Immigration is not as
large ns it is farther west, hut those who do
come are generally well-to-do people, with
money enough'to buy their land for cash, uml
have something left to work with and improve.
All along this line Inilt is cultivated to a very
large extent, and I was told by a nurservman
that 185,000 fruit-trees were planted this spring
in Johnson County alone.
Near I'awnco City is a coal-shaft, which has
been sank deep enough to satisfy any one Unit
good coul cun be had at a small cost. The vein
is u thin one,—about (ourtecu inches,—but, by
sinking deeper, it is thought Unit a better one
will bo found. Cool is brought into the town
and retailed at $5 per ton, and will undoubtedly
sell lor much loss when Uie demand wilt Justify
a proper working of the mines. As it Is, ivoud
Is so cheap hero Uialuoone cares much about
coal.
Iliad the pleasure of n few-moments 1 chat
with Mr. L. W. Towuc, General Superintendent
of the Atchison «& iNobraska Railroad, who in
forms mo that they arc now negotiating to ex
tend their lino this summer northwest, to strike
the Union Pacific Railroad. probably at Colum
bus. Tiie proposed route is through a first-rate
section of country. A vote will he submitted
at once to the various counties through which
the lino Is serveyed. Tito management is a lib
eral one, and It will be an advantage, undoubt
edly, to those counties through which it is pro
posed to ruu the line. E. T. Suhwalt,

Champaign, 111., May 15.—The poultry-yard
now should receive considerable attention. The
earlier dutches of chickens arc, hy this time,
lareo cnouch to take care of themselves. From
this time on, Insects will form a largo portion
of tlieh food; still they should he kept crowing
by u couple of feeds dally of cracked wheat, or
corn. Wo Lave always noticed that the later
Lroods of chickens usually receive but little
attention. Just wby this haopens, we do not
know; probably other cares take most of tho
lime. The half-grown birds arc also very ant to
be attacked will) disease, ami need careful look
ing after. , One certain indication of falling
health In a chicken Is Its comb, In health, It Is
of a bright red or pink color; In sickness, It as
sumes a bluish or calu tint. What Is known
among poultry-raiders as the “cholera” proves
Yen* destructive, oml numerous remedies Have
been suggested. One of tho most simple and
easily-procured Is the following, wrlttuu by a
correspondent of the Ohio Farmer:
It was very bad hero lust spring, and 1' will toll
your renders how wo cured it: For every forty
fowls wo Clink ft ptcco of neaf'Ptldtt'the i-lxo of a
hickory-nut. broke It In small pieces, mixed It in
nbout n pint of rorn-mcul. wot it thoroughly with
boiling water, nnd placed it near the roostlmr
plnce, so that tho chickens could eat of It tho jlr*t
thing In the morning. If they were net too near
dead to out, ft care was certain.

One of tho wants of u bee-keeper Is pasturage
when tho supply of basswood, white clover, and
other early und mid-summer blooming plants
have ceased to yield a supply, We have tried
Aislko clover, ami Ami that bees work it; but, at
the sumo time, it requires a rich, moist soil,
which is not always to be bad. On dry ground
it yields to drought, and dies out. The one
plant of all others that seems to be really
of value, from Juno until frost, is Moll
lot, or sweet clover. It grows under al
most any circumstances, und tho insects fre
quent it from early dawn till dewey eve. Tho
quality of houuy gathered from It is excellent.
Another valuable plant for September und Octo
ber bce-paslurneo is catnip. W? regard ft as
second only to the Molilot. One of the largest
and best apiarians in the Slate, L. C. Francis, ol
Borlngllcld, regards It very highly. It Is for tho
want of suflicleut pasturage that honey-raising
is frequently unprofitable. Early in the season
honey is stored rapidly, while later It must he
fed back to the swarms to prevent them from
perishing of hunger. Mclllot and catnip may
be sown at any time, Aislko only in spring.
A correspondent of the Jlural Ntio- Yorker
speaks of another plant—ono wo hare never
tried—as follows! ■ •
In sit my experience with bees. I find mlcnonctte

nounced through the bee-journals several years
ago. and continued experience has strengthened
that conclusion. That plant blooms early mid con
tinues to blossom till nipped by frost., x bare not
a ahade of douot but that a well-cultivated acre of
this plant would give abundant employment for

the entire square a substantial walk, uud doubt
less some handsome coping. Four hydrants—
one near each corner of thu building—have been
placed In; and, when the Job Is completed, It
will make a remarkable change from the present
appearance of the grounds.
Prodigious preparations are being made by

Last Spring, when the soft wind was wooing
The flowers to catch Us sweet breath,
You loft on my llpa your hot kisses. ,
And vowed yon would lovoxnu till death,
Yon said that no heart could beat truer}
•That the Sun must grow cold in the sky,
Aud the Moon would forever cease shining,
Jsre a love like your fovs should die.
Aud I—why, I lived for you only,
And my heart 1 laid under your feet;
And, whim In your warm clasp enfolded,
1 sighed, Oh 1 our Udcu’s complete.
Since then I have loved fifteen others.
And you to your tenth flame srewed. t
Just now 1 have found a new Edcu— . ,
Put Sun and Moon still shine o'erhead.
