Delegates from Kansn, Colorado and Wjoniing had not arrived, but w ere cxpecicd. Gov. Osborn, of Ksnsa, ariitcd on the 2Clh. Gov. Pillsbury made the opening ad dress. lie urged a joint appeal to tho Pres ident requesting him to commend to Congress; a similar address to the Western Congroasmcn; a memorial to fcda'e Legislatures, and fourth recom mendations by the Go-cruor3 thcin s.'lvcs. Prof. Thomas, of Illinois, thought the aid of the Government should bo obtained, first, in nsccrtaing informa tion to counteract the ravages of the grasshopper, and second tho tcnito rics should bo given substantial aid. The States should also be aided and appeal to the several Legislatures for assistance in biining about sueh stops as rrc necessary to find out what to do and now to do it. lie thought Con gress was willing and it should be re commended to tako some action. The locust is a national insect and a nation al plnguc . Asia and Europe have had the grasshoppers for one thousand years, but that docs not argue against providing means for its suppression, lie was sati-fied icmcdtes could bo de vised for meeting the plague. The chinch bug cau be met in Europe, ami there has not been such an incursion since 1874. Gov. Kirk wood said Northwestern Iowa had suffered severely for two jcars. Farmers should save the grass on the prairies and burn it the net spring. On cultivated ground a means of destruction ftcqucntly used was by spreading hay or straw over the sur face. At night the young insects gath er on and under it, and immense num bers wcro destroyed in this manner. Plowing this fall in some localities for the purpose of covering the eggs deep by which it is said that they will rot. Other methods arc uscd.suchas catch ing them, and machiues have been in vented for this purpose . Rolling the ground in tho spring had also been sug gested as a means for destrojing the young insects. Gov. Pennington thought it best in Dakota, to encourage the growth of crops that would mature early. They came from tho noith as far as tho British possessions. Tho evil was a wide spread one, the damage was great enough to appeal to Congress. If wc get no relief we will got knowl edge. Gov. Hardin thought that Congress should take somopart; it is a common evil reaching over a number ol States. The Department of agriculture should gather information, lie thought that ho should make some buggostions in Jlitsouri, and probably appoint com missioners to destroy them. It was a great evil and almost a military duty to destroy them. Prof. Riley said that the home of the locust was in Dakota, in tho Noith- west, and in the mountain region. Congrecs should urge organization aud furnish means to combine and de- story the young insects in tho spriug. Through the Governor of the States a bounty might bo paid per bushel for eggs, and would bo money well spent. Organized effort should ccrtaiuly be made, aud the Governors might ap point meu of knowledge this winter to locale their breeding placea and take means to destroy them in the spring. With a microscope examination al most any one could determine their condition. If the winter was severe their eggs probnbls would become addled aud not much trouble ensue. Ditching was tho most valuable means, and it should be carried out on a sys tematic scale. Wc should be organ ized in every district in the West, aud while bo was not afraid oi future CvilS, jet it was necessary to act in concert. The unfledged insect could not travel more thau four or five miles during its brief period of five or six weeks, lie urged the stops siiffgcetcd above to be taken this winter, and ex amine the ground in their native heath and reported. The nation owes it to the west to secure this information, lie insisted first of all that the settlers should not leave the wcst.as the plague will not be annual. Pennock Pnscy read to the meeting the recommendations of the Governor of Minnesota, as follows : 1. Crushing by roller', etc., and catching them by bags and traps dur ing mating, when by reason of their inactive condition they may be de stroyed. The- arc in this condition from the middle of August until cold weather. 2. Plowing udder deeply of eggs aud thorough harrowing of bare, dry knolls and other small, warm spots whcie they are deposited, which de stroys their germinating power. New breaking being a favorite rcsoi t for egg deposits, this available in the or dinary courso of farm work, which should be delayed to as late in the fall as practicable. 3. Preserving prairie grass till spriug by means of fire guards along town ship boundaries by plowed strips or wide paiallel furrows and the careful burniug of intervening space. The burning ot the grass with the voting grasshoppers in the spring, is a very effectual means of wholesale destruc tion. 4. The placing ol loose straw on or near the hatching places, into which Iheyoupg gatther from the cold in carlv spring, where they tnav be de stroyed by firing the straw. To this end straw should be carefully saved. 5. The construction ot deep, narrow ditches with deeper pits at intervals, as a defense against the approaching young insects. In these they accumu late in great numbers and perish. G. The sowing of grain in "lands"or strips fifty to. one hundred feet wide, leaving narrow, vacantspaccs through which to run deep furrows, and con struct ditches into which tho voting are driven and destroyed. 7. Catching the insect0, cspcrially young and inactive, by such means as experience suggests. 8. Finally, the driving of the winged enemy- from the ripening grain by pass ing over it stretched ropes, aided by smoke from straw and other smudges, and by discordant noises, shrieking aud yelling, inducing their flightt. Sons TMnM Which tl3 Patroau Propssj to jo. lcTo secure for themselves, through the Grange, social and educational ad vantages not otherwise attainable, and thereby while improving their condi tion as a clas, ennoble farm life and lender it attractive and desirable. 2 To give full practical effect to the fraternal tic which unites them, in helping aud protecting each other in case of sickness, bereavement, pecun iary misfortune aud want and danger of everr kind. 3.

On the 20th of July last, several gentlemen met in the city of Little Rock, Arkansas, and took the neces sary step' to organize the Southwest ern Co-operative Association of tho Patrons of Husbandry, having for its object tho putting into practical ope ration so far as may be, the recom mendations of tho executivo commit tee of the Nation-il Gtango and those icccntly published in a circular letter of the worthy master of the National Giange.

Its board of directors is made up of well known business men of Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana and Arkansas. Grange Resslutiozs. The following resolution was unani mously passed by Pleasant View Grange at its regular meeting Octo ber 23, 1870. Whkkkas, Attica Grange has passed certain resolutions for the support ot the Hon. John Kelly for State Senator, be it Jlcsolccd, I5y Pleasant View Grange that while we have the greatest re spect for the Hon. IJrother, jet wo condemn tho action of our" sister Grange for the reason that said action conflicts with the high prerogatives of our constitution, in an much as we aro under obligations not to pay any re gard to politics or religion." Therefore while we have no doubt but the ma jority of us will support Brother Kelly jet we reprehend auy Grange action in the matter. Resolved, That our county papers be requested to publish this resolution. Petek Watts, Master. J. W. C. Joxcs, Sec. pro tern. This is how the religious services wcro begun in the Patrons' Centennial Encampment, accculitig to a lady cor respondent : "No servico was held in the morning, but in the evening friends gathered in groups in the room assigned lor singing and relig ious exercises. Aud very soon sweet voices accompanied with notes from the organ, were rolling along through the vast coridors of the Encampment buildings. And O, how it stirred tho heart I Soon it wa proposed to hold a prayer meeting. This was done in a few days. The tegular attendance was quito large." MISCELLANEOUS. J WICHITA SAVINGS BANK!
