Items of Interest from all paxta of tlie Cotmty by tlie Herald's Corps of Correspond ents. Crow. Editor Herald : I wish to say to your correspondent from Crow, Mr. Tattler, that where he wishes to lay the blame on some of Uncle sam's officers, thvt he had better get up before his wife calls him to breakfast, and dp his work in time to go to the post ofiice be fore the mail starts , and not come with eoBamunieationa,an hour after the mail has gone. Tbe last conimunicatioa was too late, and was sent by Major Forney or it would not have been read by your admiring patrons last week. Come, Mr. Tattler, wake up early, please, and do not get so cross and think some one else is to blame for your own neglect. Aug 2, '84. P. M., Cuott-. Freedom. Throat and malarial diseases are quite prevalent among our citizens but Dr. Ilouck seems to have control. Croquet parties were the entertaining medium in the soeial sphere previous to the epidemic. A thresher owned by springer, sage & Hickman, is busily at worh and grain is turning out with a yield exceeding the expectations of the people- Corn is booming:, and 3 ears on a stalk has ceased to be a miracle. The grasses are coming to maturity sooner than usual and the hay harvest is pressing. A very able sermon by Ker Hahn , of Ixng Island, was listened to Sunday afternoon by a full house. Mrs. s. A. Daniels , Gf Minden. Neb., is visiting friends and relatives at this place and Marvin. The usually serene political atmos phere of Freedom sustains its equilibri um, but the votes at th polls will devel op a mature Republican "Anakiui," solid for the nominees . GOLIAH.

Woods' many friends will be flad to.learu that lie is slowly but steady, improving, we hope to see him around before long. We no doubt wrote that '"Mr. Clifford was formerly operative here" in our com. last week, but what was the matter with your intelligent compositor that be didn't correct it? eh! Will see you latek. Mar In and Vicinity. As the heat increases the interest in croquet diminishes, lleniy Crawiuer is now a land owner. We haw seen an army suit going about lately which id, said to contain Go Stinson. There was a coal famine in town last week and divers citizens might have been seen sneaking behind stores trying to "hoot" a box with which to cook their hash. Our dude has gone to hunt pastures new, Prof. Cady was in town last Friday and drove Shank's mares to Phillipsburg. L. L Gray, traveling for a Kansas City type foundry has been visiting relations in the city. One of our ministers had a severe out-break of communistic propensities last week Large herds of cattle and sheep i-re being driven through town daily. Very litlie stock is on the market now, caused by par ties holding for higher prices. Many fields of corn are out of harms way, being almost hard enough to feed to stock- S. J. llartmati turns up, reg ularly with his butter-tubs, egg cases" and little red wagon. Mrs. Daniels mother, Jlrs, Dr. Miley, is visiting her daughter. Rev. Good rich, while in Rooks county, recently started to a school house where he in tended to preach, but losing bii way, he wandered all night, morniugfound him 25 miles from his starting point. He now wears a compass pasted in his hat. We are watching with inter est the race for clerk district court. It is the general opinion in thest; parts that the county will not Buffer, if eith er of tlve gentlemen are elected. Mr. N. 6. Wright and mother, from Paw nee City. NebrasKa, have been here looking at the country and visiting relatives vd using the past week. All the trains were late Thursday morn ing.

J. W. Edwards was quite sick hist week but is now improving. The wheat yield as far as heard from exceeds the expectations of the most sanguine, and is turning out from 20 to So bush els per acre. The rye is equally as good in proportion. Major. Brush Creek Once again I come to the front to speak in behalf of the Brush Creekers, nearly all of the farmers in vicinity are busy stacking grain, some have threshed nd are happily surprised by getting more grain than they expected.

GuEiiNiioKu. Belmont Township. Not seeing anything in your valuable paper from this neighborhood I con cluded to drop you a lew lines, hoping in this manner toset the ball a rolling, so as some one elsi more competent would take hold and send in items regu lar. Harvest is over and stacking pretty near done; millet cutting is the go now, and. like small grain, is a big crop; corn is just splendid hut is neediug rain now.
