In District 48 Forest day was obser ved on Thursday instead of Friday, the regular day. The teacher. Miss Mamie Humiston, and her pu[*Is planted eight trees. These are the first trees planted on our school grounds. It is hoped they may spread their cooling branches and shades over teachers and scholars for many years. Corn planting is in progress. A good deal was planted last week. Prairie tires were the clilet excite ment last week. The writer saw her home pass the narrowest chance be tween fire and safety it ever had, and not a bit of fire on the McKillop farm, all danger coming from the farm for merly owned by 1. B. Newkirk it be ing left with no fire protection what ever. Mr. McKillop'a family after ma king themselves safe, put the rest of fire out and saved the large grove from burniug the grove which Mr. Newkirk took so much pride iu planting. Mr. Chauey's people had a narrow escape from being entirely burned out last week, barns, machinery and proba bly the house. A perfect gale was blowing from the south. About one o'clock a freight train was passing and set afire in the stubble, and in a few moments it was sweeping toward the •tables, and in its c4Urse it burned a new grove of maples ahd box elders three hundred willows in another grove, a good many large willows in another place, and two acres of clover besides. E. F. Whitney started his breaking plow last week. Miss Mary Terry has commenced school in district 48, having enjoyed a short term of study iu the 'Yoithiug ton school. ELK. A change has come over the country during the last two weeks, the brown prairie is rapidly disappearing and a lovely dress of green covers the earth, even as we write we look out upon the trees and fancy we can see the little leaves growing. These cool days are nice for wheat which is looking fine. Small grain is up and looking well and the corn planters are all busy far mers are wishing frr rain. There is being quite a lot of small fruit planted this spring,such as goose berries, raspberries and strawberries, •II of which do well in this country. The closing exercises of the school in district No. 8, on Friday last were very nice, consisting.of songs and recita tions the children did their teacher ^redit, especially in a song entitled, "Geometrical Song," and one the "River Song," by May Kirk and Flor ence WHkinson. Mr. Hard was through the town last week buying cattle. Garie Green,• of Worthington Is breaking 75 acres for Peter Harse of this town, we understand he is going to break for other parties in town, and suppose he will as Garie is a russler to work. Miss Lydia Estes commenced her school in district £9, last Monday. Sunday school was reorganized in district No. 8, Sunday last. We hope it may be a success. There was several of the young people out from Worth ington who furnished excellent music both vocal and instrumental, we hear that the young people's Endeavor So ciety is tosend one or two representa tives to the school each Sunday during the summer. LUVERNE UOAD. ADVANCE The must excuse, us for not sending in. news. We have been too busy putting crops to either hear or tell ths news. This time Frank Lambert is the hap py father of a fine boy. Frank Green was quite proud over a similar event, but Frank Lambert is prouder still. He has quit smoking, so his gentlemen friends will not get the cigars. Corn planting is now in order. The Baxters are putting in 40 acres the Lamberts 60 the Sutherlands 70 acres and Mr. Bass 25 acres. Mr. Tobey is having his old place put in crop. One of Mr. Baxter's cows has had twin calves. Mr. Peterson is breaking on the n. e. quarter section 18. Air. David IIerlin,on section 7, has put iu a large acreage to small grain, and will plant a big field of corn. Mr. Frank Green is rushing the work on his farm is now planting corn, and he has good corn land. The old Eggle* ston farm was always well farnred. Ve hear that a herd of 1800 from Iowa is to occupy all ihe vacant lands «f the Railroad company. This will disappoint some of the old settlers, who intended to herd on the same ground. We are already feeling the need of rain, in order that breaking be made easy and the spring crops advanced. We would like to hear from the Worthington weather prophet as to the kind of weather we are to have. Tell us now any body can tell after we have had the weather. Our ever faithful pastor Rev. F. L. Fisk, preached last Sunday in District No. 42 school house. The Lamberts are cropping the Rose farm. Mr. •Bass, though still on the sick list has bought a fine new buggy. The boys have the place nearly all plowed and 8owu to small grain. "EWINGTONT- What a fi ie spring we are having though a little late in its entree. Never in our experience has seed germin ted so quickly and started out with such a vigorous growth, and now the cool weather will cause it to stool out and root deep. Could we g» a good soak ing rain now a fine crop would almost be a foregone conclusion. A good crop this season (considerinc the acreages:iwn)willcreateatremfnd ousrush of business in southwest Min. nesota, »nd if added to that our hay industry teceives its proper share of at tention the volume will assume the di mensions of a boom. I tell you the latter is not to be sneezed at as any spectator might at test, who was watching the matter in Worthington marketsduring last week A hundred tons a day was the estimate by many who noted the operations. Mrs. Blaisdell who used to live in this country, and who by her trench ant pen and breezy colloqnus earner) tie sobriquet of Minnesota Blizztrd. once said "Grass is King,"and Mrs. l. was quite correct ami if any onedoesn'i think so let him interview our dealers in Worthington. A brief inquiry one day elicited the following information in reference to receipts and output by some of the operators: B. E. Covey nearly 4,000 tons Norman Bro's. over 2,000 tons Azim Forbes over 1,000 Besides there were Nichols, Fisher, Ilansberger and others who have operated largely and profitably in that line. But what I want to say particu larly in reference to hay is in vindica tion of our own native grasses. I no« tice in many papers a tendency to dub southwest Minnesota as the "blue grass region." This is a misnomer and «s a stickler for our old, tried and true friend we stand by bluejoint.*5 We ar* told that in our metropolitan maikets it has earned the pseudonym of "gilt-edged" and that honestly too I believe. As to their comparative merits by analytical test we know no thing. but the lacteal laboratory of "Old Bus" 8*ys its a pail filler, and only that but it puts a sleek and shiny coat on the festive steer and pads it with mellow adipose. Oh, no blue joint is here to stay, "his foot is on his native heath,'" that is to say he "holds the age," and the sceptre too for that matter, aud don't propose to abdicate or be bowled out by an interloper from "old Kaintuck," so there now. Saturday evening, May 23rd, is fixed upon as the date of Rev. Win. Brown's lecture, and the place will be Bethel church, in this town.

NAMAKAGbir LUMBER Co VOL. XIX. WORTHINGTON. NOBLES COUNTY, MIN TRIP TO OREGON. The Arid Vaitca off Nebraska* With Nothlag Bit DeMlatloa Greet the Ejre. Beautiful mountain Scenery, Where His SalaiileMajeatjrSeemat* Have Poaaeaalon. Nature's Odorous Perfumes, diving Life, Health, Sweetness and Beauty* EUGEN.E, Oregon, May 1,1831. EDITOR ADVANCE:—In to give a description of a trip to the Pacific coast, I recognize tbe fact that the ground has been gone over by much abler pens than mine, therefore 1 shall merely give facts as I found them, or as they appeared to me, in the language of a plain farmer, with no attempt at originality, and much less at imitation. The next morning after leaving Worthington found us at North Platte, Neb., aud here was our first disap pointment. On viewing the great North Platte river, that figures so largely in the history of Nebraska, we found it a stream, muddy, shallow and full of sand bars, with only water enough in it to make a respectable sized brook, owing probably to contin ued dry weather. From here to the mountains was one vast stretch of*un broken prairie, beautiful to behold but apparently worthless when viewed from the standpoint of a farmer. A stack of hay or straw, or a man plow ing, to break the monotony of theeter nal plains would have been a great re lief, but as nothing of the kind ap peared I was occasionally forced to turn my eyes towards the inside of the car to find something on which to rest them. This scene was intensified in every respect when we crossed over into Col orado. Language is entirely inade quate to describe the magnificently un dulating praiiies that meet the view of the traveler across the corner of the state named, traversed by the main line of the U. P., but like the rest, worthless except for grazing, and seem ingly not very good for that. The winter just passed, like its pre decessor, was very severe over the plains and thousandsof cattle perished. In the towns along the railroad from 25 to 75 per cent of the buildings were empty, the people had a dejected and discouraged look, aud would gladly leave, but like a man stranded on a desolate and barren island in mid ocean, they have no way of getting •ut, as it is several hundred miles either way to anything better. One man stated that he started in the win ter with 1,500 head of cattle, and spring found him with 55 head of very poor and almost worthless cattle, the rest having perished during the win ter. Some day this country may be the garden ot the world, but it must of a necessity be ages and ages hence, unless the millions of capital that is being hoarded in the east by individ uals and syndicates be placed here to bring this vast country to what it un doubtedly would be with plenty of water, which could be obtained by ir rigation. Here is a chance for those who have grown enormously rich by robbery and oppression of their fellow man, to partly make amends for their lmes. But will they do it? Yes, when they are sure of several hundred per cent profit ou the investment. But I forego the temptatiou to dwell lon ger on this lest I occupy too much of your valuable space. Crossing over into Wyoming the monotony was soon broken by the abruptness of the change in the face of the country, first hills and then cliffs appearing to the view with a sudden ness that made it appear as if they jumped out of the ground. An hour was spent at the lively, busy, energetic ci of Cheyenne, giving us a chance to speculate on the probability of be ing riddled with bullets, but we were assured that the majority were peace ful if the minority were not of the most angelic. Onward and upward we sped until Laramie was reached. Here another hour was spent and we boldly sallied forth, in defiance of any imagined dan ger from stray knives or bullets, em boldened by the clear pure atmosphere and our nearness to the clouds. The energy, enterprise and push of Chey enne was distanced bv this city of 7,000 inhabitants and as many feet above sea level. We counted over 86 business plants aside from ordinary stores, shops, etc. Here is more life and energy to the square Inch than in any other place in the U. 8. Still onward and upward we (rent un til Summit, the highest point reached on the Rockies by the railroad. The day was fair and the air very clear and distance was nothing, for nothing could be seen outside of the little sta tion but desolation drear and dismal, but grand withal. The air was keen and a good tester of weak lungs. Just across the track towered the monu ment of Oaks Ames, of Credit Mobi~ lier notoriety, put, not "where it would do the most good," but where it would do the least barm. During the next several hours ride after leaving the Summit, nothing much is to be teen but sage brush and alkali, with an occasional mining town until after entering Utah, when we began shooting through snow sheds and tunnels with gigantic cliffs tow ering up hundreds of feet above tbe road and seeming to threaten destruc tion on all below, quickly followed by TKOVCHT FREE S the cars in their turn gliding oyer dizzy heights that would send the shivers chasing each other down tli# spine of those who had tbe courage to look below. On this part of the route are some of the principal objects of interest to travelers and where his Satanic Maj esty seems to have a monopoly for a short distance, beginning with Devill Gate, Devil's Cauon, followed by Rooa~ ter Rock, the Petrified Woman, and hosts of others "too numerous to men tion." Chief est and last among those in this vicinity was "Devil's Slide." This consists of two upright walls of solid rock some ten or twelve feet in height, and alike distance apart, look ing like a gigantic chute for loadiig stock on ears and reaching from the UDC. attempting .....„ __ ..._ •n,e Of hundred*n* Of Ing till, acens in ober light suddenly broke upon us in regard to the true origin of tobogganing, and we for the first time comprehended the meaning of the term going down grade "like the devil" which we had so often heard in connection with tobogganing and which our train at the same time was said to be doing. However we soon left the vicinity of the Old Fel low's former haunts behind and pulled into Ogden, the suburb of the Mormon stronghold in former times, when Brigliam Young, in the glory of his power, married every other woman in the Territory. Here we were obliged to lay over nearly seven hours and taking advan tage of the opportunity, we visited points of interest in the city and by a little questioning gained a fair knowl edge of the condition of affairs and of the dangers of being to uchly mar ried. Finding tbat it was a peniten tiary offense we hastened back to our car and offered the conductor "two bits" to pull out, but as he stubbornly refused we concluded that he was go ing to take the risk. The city is beautifully situated, sur rounded by snow capped mountains that bom up to such an extent as to impress one with the idea that they are but a few rods away when they were in reality from six to ten miles off. The soft spring bret zes and the scent of starting vegetation was deli cious after experiencing the kten chill air of the mountains. From here we turned i.orth by win of the Oregon Short Line and reached Pocatello, Idaho, the next morning. From there we followed the great val ley the Snake river for several hun~ died miles over a vast stretch of level prairie covered with sage brush. A magnificent view of tbe American Falls on Snake river made a lasting impression on us, as did the terrible alkali dust of the plains of V\ estern Idaho, that filled the eyes of passen gers and literally covered everything in the cars. Relief same at night when we crossed over into Oregon, aud, re tiring tD our berths, we wake up at Arlington on the Columbia river next morning. From here to Portland the road fol lows the river and the magnificent mountain scenery of the Cascade range is fully as grand as anything the Rockies had It* offer. At Biidal Veil Falls the train stopped long enough to give ilie passengers a chance to view tbe water fall and the grandeur of the surrounding scenery. The Dalles next appeared, calling forth, exclamations of surprise and delight froir. the trav elers, being grandly beautiful beyond the power of words to describe. At noon our train pulled into Port land, being nearly three hours behind time. Here agniit we were obliged to lay over for several hours before con tinuing our journey, and ag#iti taking advautage of our opportunity we vis ited some of the points of interest iu the city. Taking the motor car we as cended Portland Heights, from which a bird's eye view of the city and valley is obtained. *At our feet lay the city, the Willamette ahd Columbia rivers. At our right, the depot, the docks and bay, with steamers and sailing vessels lying at anchor while in the distance could be seen the towering peaks of Mount Helleiis, Mount Hood, and over in Washington, Mount Adams. The day being bright and clear, the v&w was fine and the scene enchanting be yond description, and we reluctantly descended as it were to earth and mor* common-place things. Here we found the weather very warm, excessively so to us from Minnesota and Northern Iowa, with myriads of wild flowers id bloom in the mountains, and fr,uit trees of all kinds loaded with blossoms in the valleys. The air seemed laden with the scent of a thousand different perfumes vthicli to inhale was life, health, sweetness and beauty. It was like being transported to a "Land that Is fairer than day. Where the flowers eternally bloom." In my next I will give some particu lars of this valley, its resources, its prospects and its people, this letter be ing already too long to admit of any thing more at present. CONSUMPTION CUBED.
