A warm day like this," :-aid the
nautical "cop" yesterday afternoon at
Eighth and Chestnut streets as he shook
the beads of prespiration from his walking-cane,
"reminds me of a pretty warm
place I ouce got into, and on a freezing
cold day. Don't know what a 'case
whale' is, do you? Well, it's a whale
that has a cavity iu its head which holds
jnst one-third of all the oil that the
whale produces. The body of a seventy-live
barrel 'case whale yields fifty
barrels and the head twentv-five bar
rels. The incident I speak of happened
while I was on board the whaling ship
Eliza F. Mason.
"We had captured a hundred barrel
whale, and alter the head was split
open I was detailed. to' dip out the oil.
It's just like going, into a big bath tub,
and a man stands almost-up to his arm
pits in oil. I was wading about in the
monster's head when I was suddenly
startled by seeing the surface of the oil
burst into a blaze, caused, as I after
ward learned, by one of the crew acci
dentally dropping a box of burning
matches. The only thing to do was to
dive under the oil, and I did it, with my
sheath knitein mv teeth. I. turned my
head after 1 got underneath .and could
plainly see the flames jumping about
three feet. After I could breath no
longer 1 attempted to come to the sur
face, but the heat was so intense that I
had to dive back again, and made a des
perate effort to dig my way out with the
knife. 1 managed to dig a hole large
enough for to thrust my head through,
and then, by a mighty effort, escaped
into the sea. It was a pretty tight
squeeze, I can tell you. and. my body
was so warm that it made the watez
hiss all around me. The captain of tho
vessel thought I had been burned to
death, and when I swam to the side of
the vessel, he was so frightened that he
told me there was only one thing that
prevented him from turning gray in a

On the inside of this issue of the
Herald will be found the proceedings
of the Republican State Convention
which met at Topeka last Wednesday.
The convention was the largest eyer
assembled In the State. Every organ
ized county being f ully represented and
all but twotf the unorganized counties.
There was very great' unanimity of
feeling on all questions really at issue
in the6tate. The plitform being re
ported by the whole committee on reso
lutions and unanimously by the conven
tion. The ticket nominated was a good
one and we believe will be triumphant
ly elected. John A. Martin for Gover
nor, A. H, Horton for Chief Justice,
S. T How for State Treasurer and E.
P. McCabe for Auditor were each nom
inated by acclamation, and every nom
ination was made unanimous with an
evident good will, and adjourned with
a feeling of satisfaction as to wnat they
had done, which seems to be recipro
cated by the people of the State.
Items of Interest Iroxa all
parts of tlie Cottnty,"by
tne Herald's Corps
of Correspond- ; . .
- ents
The Herald comes to us again this !
week with its general news and items
of interest from its corps of correspond
ents making it a lively and interesting
newspaper. In fact, we could not dis
pense with it.
Crops are looking splendid in this
part of the county. The wheat harvest
is about over. We have been. pretty
busy of late.
Mr. F. Walker, of Brush creek, has
been 41 coming through the rye" with
his little Buckeye dropper , with a crew
of followers each one as complete a self
binder as ever was invented, and the
way we have of tieing up the grain is a
caution to those who are trying iheir
hand with high-priced machinery. Mr.
Walker is one of the coming men of the
times and he will "get there," and
don't you forget it.
On the Sabbath day , at 2 o'clock, p.
m., he may be seen at the stone school
house, doing the oliice of Superintend
ent of the Silver creek M. E. Sabbath
School in a way that strikes terror to
the hearts of evil-doers. Among the
principal elements of this school is Mr.
Chas Tracy, of Mound , who, with his
dignified bearing and ability to explain
technical points, commands at once the
attention of his eluss. Your correspon
dent is one of his most dutiful and
obedient scholars.
Mr. Roland , of Brush creek, has just
started, his threshing machine. We are
in hopes that he will keep his machine
in crrnf mnninor nrfiar. thus? KM.ti?f"ci ncr

the farmers and establishing his reputa
tion as a good thresher. He is a good
worker and we wish him success.
Last Sabbath we were happy to see
the friendly faces of Mr. and Mrs. O
R. Benedict who have recently returned
from a visit in Nebraska. One of. this
year's improvements is their new stone
house which is about completed.
In addition to the many improvement
in Dayton I will state that the township
has paid off its outstanding orders and
has money left and we naturally feel
cur importance as a reliable fraction of
the county. . n
We hear of some damage caused by
the recent heavy rains. The mill dams
at Almena and Logan are both washed
out. By the way, Mr. Editor, would
not a steam grist mill in Phillipsburg be
a grand institution?
Mr. Walter Brownlee, the present
trustee of Dayton township, conducts
the business of his office in a judicious
manner. He is a man of sound judg
ment and is the right man in the right
Thus far this season we have had no
hail to speak of and we are very thank
ful ; in fact, we could get along without
any at all except Hail Columbia."
Hurrah for Blaine and Logan.
Marvin and Vicinity.
The Solomon river was on a rampage
last week. No loss is reported except
the loss of the Logan dam.
Max Angeroth and family have con
cluded that this is the best place after
all , and they will occupy the Pratt store
The manager of the company which
is buying wheat at this place informs
us that they expect to pay the highest
cash price for grain. This they can do,
as they buy grain at numerous points
on this road and intend to ship by the
train load.
We neglected to report last week that
Dr. Landon . and Clis Landreth had
each built additions to their residences .
There seems to be an increase of trav
el on the railroad now.
Dud Gibbs started his thresher this
week. It is said to be doing first rate
' W. F, Solman will teach the next
term of school. Mr. S. i3 an excellent
man and a thorough educator.
Dr. Landon was called last Sunday,
to attend D.-W. Sturtevant, who lives
five miles south of town.
The wind storm of Friday evening
blew over numerous stacks of grain.
A gentleman living south of town,
who is also a minister, finding that his
fine field of wheat would go into the
ground unless cut at once, and being
unable to obtain a machine day or night
during the week , was offered the use of
a header on Sunday, took it and cut his
grain, thu3 saving a portion of it, being
assisted by a brother member. A min
ister of the same church, during the
course of his sermon that day, denounced
their action in language more abusive
than becoming, and then ordered a col
lection taken for his own individual
benefit. This preacher reminds us of
the pharisees when they rebuked Christ
for permitting his disciples to pluck the
ears of corn on the Sabbath day.
The frame work of J. E. Wrright's
new house was raised this week.
The mill pond is fall of water now,
and all that prevents us from having a
splendid boat ride is the fact that we
have no boat.
Lots of fields of volunteer rye around
here will make 20 to 25 buskels per
&cr&. -
II. S. Pope and son have been engaged
for some time on the new addition to
tl;e Logan mills.
Fine roads, line weather, fine crops
and a fine town. O, what a glorious
country we haye!
Messrs. John and James Woods,
John Lowe, Strain, Lightfoot, Pratt,
and numerous other Phillipsburgers
made calls in town recently.
As this township is not bonded, why
would it not be a pious plan to vote suf
ficient bonds to put in a bridge south of
town? The trade of our town would be
doubled and the extra tax would soarce
ly be felt.
Part of the Oberlin delegates passed
through town Sunday evening.
Lewis Borsheim now assists N- W.
Gibbs in the hardware store, and occa
sionally tinkers a watch.
Our townsman, Geo, Bell started for
Oberlin Monday morning.
Wm. Duyall, of Logan, - was looking
after his interests here Friday.
Revt James Suggs preached in the
morning, Rev. Dalton in the afternoon
and Rev. Edwards at night. All thi3

Harvesting is about over, and the peo
ple are beginning to stack their grain .
Mr. U. K. Clark has bought himself
a new Buckeye table rake reaper, and is
now ready to help out his friends, who
are too poor to buy a machine .
Uncle Billy Knox lost a valuable mare
a short time since. Some say adversity
i3 better for one than prosperity; how
is it, Uncle?
The corn crop is almost assured.
Our esteemed brother quill-driver
from Brush creek adds a "goople"
more to the rules laid down some time
since. We thins we recognize the
hand of an old friend in -Greenhorn's"
notes, one who is not only good on the
run, but wno is also a very "last"

good feeling, that he is decidedlv fast,
it he intimates that his rules do not suit
our"ta8te." They are good. We
commend them to the prayerful consid

then returning to the Island in time to

Miss Amanda is one of our most estima
