It has been kept a pro fo.ind usurer uud will Surprise everybody but a few of the boys, who have been aware of the young man's trips to Kentucky for Bonie time past. We have heretofore nsijlectcd to notice ! the death of Miss Nancy Sk;en, of Paint I tp , sister of Mr. John Skecn, who died at her brother's residence ou the l!th of last Decernbsr of paralysis. Sue was born March 3.1, 1SJ1, in Virginia, and had been a resident of this county for nbout fifty years. We call the attention of our readers to the new time-table of the M. & C, iu an other column. Heretofore tho company has ben a little lax iu furnishing us with the chauges o tini3. However, we have cow a complete and correct table, and we hope it will prove satisfactory to our trav elling public. Dill Chapman, who was arrested last week on the charge of whipping his father, of which the News made mention, was discharged on Wednesday, his father re fusing to prosecute the case. Dill denies that he whipped his father, and from what we can learn we are satisfied that he is innocent of the charge. Representative Pugsley is becoming the wit of llie House as well as one of the most common sense talkers. He objected yesterday to being notified as to the true nature of butter, on the ground that lie had hard enough work to keep his stom ach from turning now without knowing the component parts of what lie ate State Journal. We see by an item in the Indianapolis Sentinel that Mr. J. M. Cooper, the to bacconist of this place, was the first pro fessional cig ir-maker that ever worked in Indianapolis. His father couducted an establishment there in 1S3.", aud ho work ed for him at that time. Mr. Cooper has been making cigars ever since, and if he cant make a good one, wo don't know who can. A recent number of the Hot Springs, Ark., Daily Telegraph re-publishes "Mo ther Hubbard's" poem on the "Assembly," which appeared iu the News a few weeks since, and also copies our introductory re marks, failing to give credit for either U publishes the poetry as editorial. It may have been an oversight in the editor, but it looks very much as if he were try ing to steal it. The carrow-gu:ige hits made another change in their time-table. They have ta ken off the south-bound morning train and the north-bound evening train. The schedule time of the remaining trains re mains the same. We understand the road is using all its energies towards bring ing iron, ti, &e. from Batavia, for the purpose of continuing the construction further South. The Ripley Bee and Times of last week copies a number of railroad squibs from the News and credits them to the Gazette. It attempts to answer them and be very haul on Hillsboro, but we consider it be neath our notice to pny any attention to such small fry as Ripley. The Brown County News man is a little off about his credits, and gets off a pun on Col Picard that is just too funny for anything The recout severe snow-storm seems to have nearly filled Yeuuor's prophecy. In Canada, tho drifts are some 30 feet deep ; in New England, from 5 to 12 feet; in New York City, the ice and sleet were so severe as to prostrate the teleguph lines and render travel extremely dangerous ; at Deadwood, 30 inches; Chicago, 1 to 2 feet; aud even as far south as New Orleans, the the Blm has been the severest for years. The Temperansa meeting at City Hall Sunday afternoon was largely attended and quite interesting. It was led by Mr. A. V. Thornburg and uddressed by Judge Meek and Jos. E Marks, Esq., the latter gentlemen giving au account of ob servations ou Temperance matters while on his trip to Virginia and Washington. The following new Committee was ap pointed to keep np the Murphy meetings : A Manning, Dr. P. II. Wever, Geo. T. Byland, Lewis Leib, R. J. Duffey, J. E. Young and J. L. Boardman. Mat. Farrell, of Covington, Ky., who lias been money order clerk in the Post Office there, was arrested last week charged with forgery and embezzlement, and held in the sum of .$3,0(10 to answer to the L S. court, his mother, the post-mistress going ou his bond. It is claimed that Farrell has sto len about $3iX in all, which has been made good by his mother. Farrell is quite weli known In social circles in this city, having ben present at one or two balls within the past year or two. From all ac counts he is now in a fair way to go to the penitentia ry. Mr. J. F. Sinclair, now on a visit to his uncle Jos. Carman, .came very near freez ing to deuih hist Christmas. Mr. S., ow ing to inj iriei received during his exper iences in the West, is suffering from par tia) paralysis. His infirmity causing his locomotion to be slow and laborious. On Christmas morning he started to walk to town, aid being unable." to walk fast enough to keep warm, soon began to chill through. Fueling very tired, leaned against a fence, and before he was aware fell asleep. Hi J it not beoa for tha kind ness of some gentleman, of whose name tc arc not informed, ho would undoubtedly have frozen to death. Mr. Sinclair has al most entirely recovered from his adven ture. This experience may serve as a warning t'i oth jrs uot to allow their ten dency to slucp to overcame them during exposure to cold, as this is one of the sure indications of freezing. Mr. Sinclair is in Highland ounty looking around for a suitable place on which to settle. We hope he will bucei ed as we feel sure he will bi a valuable acquisition to our farm. ing community. He savs that until he mingled with the Highlanlers ho was a staunch Southern Democrat, but the cor didwefcjme hi roo.ivel and the argu ments presented in the News, which he read regularly, convinced him of his cror. He returned to his home in Virginia on purpose to vote, so that he might add one more to the glorioiB Republican roll in the Old Dominion. A Card. RAINSBORO, O., Jan. 21, 1881.

On Tuesday niht of last week alter the News had gone to press, there occurred a serious cutting affray on South High street, which came near resulting fatally. A crowd of boys were coasting on the hill when Ed. Williams' and Fred HufTen berger's sleds collided. A few words passed between them, and before any of the by standers could interfere, Williams went for Huffenberger with n knife and a razor, inflicting several severe wounds, one on the arm and several on his breast. After the cutting Williann darted into an alley and Iluffeiiberg started forhis brother-in-law's, but fainted from loss of blood. Dr. Russ was sum .oned and dressed the wounds, which will not prove fatal, but are quite painful. Williams is a colored hoy, son of the late Didimus Williams, and is a bad character. It is genera'ly known that he carries a razor and that he will use it if he becomes enraged. A warrant was immediately gotten out for him, but the officers have not yet succeeded in find ing him, and it is supposed he has left the town. Huffenberger is a quiet, inoffensive young man and much indignation is felt against Williams. The two had some sort of difficulty at the colored church a few weeks since, which is thought to be the real causa of the cutting. . it is to be hoped that Williams will be captured, as a plain case of cutting with intent to kill can be made against him, and our town will be relieved for a year or two of a desperate and worthless scamp. BAD BLOOD. BETWEEN A COUPLE OF COLORED BRETHREN OF GREENFIELD. BROTHER TAYLOR TAKES OFF BROTHER MORTON'S EAR WITH A CHAIR. GREENFIELD, O., Jan. 24, 1881. Special to the NEWS. Last Wednesday evening a fl .?ht occur red between a couple of well known col ored men, living a short distance west of this place, who are members of the same church. Their names are Benjamin Mor ton and Fermau Taylor, the former being single and the lattor a married man. It seems that for soma time past Morton has beeu too intimate with Taylor's wife, which was tha causa of the difficulty, which oecurre 1 iu the following manner: On Wednesday evening last, Mrs. Tay lor went to a neighbor's on an errand, and was accompanied home by Morton. When they arrived at the house Taylor was waiting for them, and he attacked Morton with a heavy chair, striking hn a terrif fic blow on the side of the head, which al most severed one of his ears. Morton was knocked senseless by the blow, but when he recovered consciousness he needed no second invitation to leave. Dr. Frank L. Wilson, of this place went oat and dress ed his wounds, putting the ear back in place, stitching it fast. Both of the broth ers are members of the same church, and there will be a church trial to settle the muddle, at which some rich developments are expected. No arrests have been made. Jep. Mrs. Hayes' Portrait. Editor News; The testimonial por trait of Mrs. President Hayes, is now be ing painted by Huntingdon, of New York, the chief American portrait artist who expects to nare it finished by the loth of February next. The frame is to be of wood, carved in the school of Design at Cicinnati, under the skillful guidance of Mr. Benn Pitman, and will be the gift of the Cincinnati ladies. As soon as the work of the painter is finished that of the engraver will begin, as it is the design of the "Memorial Com mittee" that a first class steel engraving of this life-sized portrait shall be sent to all who subscribed $5 to the the "Memo rial Fund" which fund, it must be re membered, is not alone for portrait and engraving, but for the founding of what is so much needed, a permanent fund, the interest of which is to be used for the free circulation of Temperance literature. From many places seminaries, colleges and schools Have sent from $5 to $25. Washington C. II., the "cradle of the cru sade" sent f 20 froni three schools. From Report of Treas., for Jan. '81.

And that we be not lul upon tha list of contributors, let us do what we do quickly. E. J. T. Probate Court Proceedings. Frank Glenn appointed guardian of Lou. C. Watkins.

THE MASONIC BANQUET. A VERY ENJOYABLE ENTERTAINMENT. ABOUT TWO HUNDRED GUESTS PRESENT. . The Banquet given by the Masonic Bodies of Hillsboro at their elegant Tem ple on North High street, last Friday eve ning, was a complete success, as all the Masonic entertainments are, and was an occasion not soon to be forgotten by those favored with invitations. It was simply an entertainment for social recreation and enjoyment, there being no installation of officers, nor any ceremonies peculiar to the Order indulged in. About two hun dred invitations were issued in all, and by 8 o'clock the company had all assembled in the "Blue Room," where they were hos pitably received by a committee appointed for that purpose. The company included most of our prominent people and a large number of ladies. There was no regular programme laid out, and after a few moments spent in greeting friends and conversation, the Glee Club under the di rection of Dr. J, R. Callahan, entertained the company for half an hour or so with some of their choicest selections, which were greeted with applause. Prof. Nulle played the accompniinents on the organ, the performances of the Club added much to the evening's entertainment. The Glee Club has been organized only a few weeks, and it was its first appear ance in public. It is composed of the best musical talent our city affords and we hope the public will have an opportunity of hearing them in opera before the win ter is over. After singing supper was announced and the guests repaired to the Chapter or "Red Room" of the Highland Commandary, K. T., where long tables were straining under the load of rich viands. The tables pre sented a beautiful appearance, and the guests were all seated. Those who could not be accommodated in the Chapter Room were sent to the dining rooms on the second floor, and tables were also set in some of the sinaHr apartments. The News representative had the pleasure of taking supper with the Glee Club in an apartment set aside for that purpose, and the company seated around the festal board was a merry one. Dr. Callahan waited on the guests, and all the members of the Masonic Bodies did everything that was possible for their comfort and enjoyment. The blessing was invoked by Grand Chap lain .Rev. L. F. Van Cleve, when every body fell to with a will. The menu em braced all the delicacies of the season and was a credit to the Order. After supper the company assembled in the "Blue Room'1 where the time was spent pleasantly as best suited the guests until about 11 o'clock, when they repair ed to their homes. The entertainment was indeed a pleasant one, and was pro nounced a decided success. The Masons never do anything by halves, and when they entertain their friends they do it right royally. Success to their organizations iu this city. COASTING. The young folks have been enjoying rare sport the past week coasting, and it is now the chief amusement. The many long and steep hills in the city and immediate vicinity, covered as they are with such well-packed snow, afford a splendid oppor tunity for the enjoyment of this healthful exercise, and it is being entered into right heartily. Beech street bill is probably the most popular resort, being lined with a merry crowd of young people day and night. Starting on the High street cross ing, the sleds run all the way to the M. & C. R. R., a distance of about three squares. The sport is very exciting and somewhat dangerous, but as yet we have heard of no serious accidents. Probably the pleasantest coasting party of the season, was that of last Monday evening, when a party of .ome eight or ten couple of ladies and gentlemen assem bled at Gov. Hart's and proceeded to Am brose's hill, west of town on the Danville pike. The mode of exit was rathor a nov el one, but nevertheless very enj yab!e. Twelve or fifteen sleds tied together, wero hitched lo a horse, which made a train at least thirty feet long. Ladies and gentle men were seated on the sleds together, and as they passed through town to the merry music of the sleigh bells and peals of laugh ter, attracted the attention of everybody, Tbe hill is a very long one, the sleds run ning nearly a quarter of a njile. After en joying the sport to the utmost until about half-past nine o'clock, the party was in vited to the palatial residence of Mrs. Jos. II. Richards, near by, where, they were en. tertained in an elegant manner by that la dy and her daughter Miss Lizzie. Hot coffee and other delicious refreshments were served, and the remainder of the evening spent pleasantly in the spacious parlors. About midnight the train start ed to town again, and the merry laughter that rang out on the midnight air was the best evidence of the enjoyment of the fun. The crowning event of the evening was the dumping of the entire partv in a snow-bank near Gov. Harts' but m one was injured. With one. accord the par ticipants pronounced the evenings' enter tainment one of the pleasantest of the win ter, and promised themselves another of the same k'nid before the snow left. MYERs—NELSON. WEDDING AT THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. As announced in the News last week, Miss Anna V. Nelson, daughter of Mr. Win. A. Nelson, was married at noon last Thursday, to Mr. M. M. Myers, of Paris, Jlls. The ceremony was performed in the Presbyterian church at noon, by Rev. W. J. MoSurely, in the presence of the rela lives of Mis Nelson, and about 150 invited guests. Mr. J. W. Shepper, of Paris, and Mr. Ehvood Nelson, of this city acted as groomsmen, the bridsmaids being Misses Lena aud Lizzie Nelson, sister and cous in of the bridu. They left immediatly af ter the ceremony for Mr. Mycr's home, car rying with them the best wishes of their many friends here. Mr. Myers is a rising young lawyer of Paris, and v.e can assure him that he has secured an excellent com panion in Miss Nelson. Among the guests from abroad in attendance at the wedding, were Mrs. Col. Sellers and Miss Jennie Harris, of Paris, Ills. A Lady Minister Coming. Mrs. Julia A. Foot, ed evangelist of Cleveland, whose coming we mentioned in the News last week will arrive here ou Thursday of this week, when a series of meetings will begin at the Wesleyan Methodist church, continu ing over Sabbath. Everybody Is invited to attend and hear Mrs. Foote, who is one of the most successful femalo preachers in the country. The "Assembly" Will hold its second meeting on Thursday evening of this week, at the City Nail, and will np doubt be an elegant affair. It is the chief topic of conversation in social circles just now, and we trust it will be a success. The gentlemen can see tho list of ladies by calling on Mr. Will Matthews at Capt. Matthews' grocery. COURT. SMALL AMOUNT OF BUSINESS TRANSACTED. VERDICTS OF JURY, JUDGMENTS, ETC. The case of John W. E.ikins against L. W. Tay lor and C. W. Edwards was began on Thursday morning last before a Jury. The verdict was re tnraed ou Friday and was as follows: "We, the Jury, upon the Issues joiued between the parties, find for tha plaiutiff, and against the defendants, L. W. Taylor and C. W.

RAILROAD MATTERS. FINISHING UP THE WORK ALL ALONG THE LINE. THE QUOTA EVERY COUNTY CERTAIN EXCEPT HIGHLAND. NEW LEXINGTON MAKES A PROPOSITION FOR THE LINE. MEETINGS TO BE HELD THIS WEEK, ETC. An immense amount of work has been done since our last issne in the C. & il. Railway Inter prise, and this week is being devoted to finishing np all along the line, as the money (t500,000) and the right of way along the line must be secured by Thursday of next week the 3d of February, in or derto accept the proposition of the Columbus Con struction Company. The gentlemen who have the matter in hand assure us that the money will be raised all along the line, except in llighland coun ty, this week, and there Is danger of our loosing the road altogether. If Highland county wants the road she has got to work for it, and subscribe her quota. It is now the lust day, late in the eve ning and what she intends to do she must do quickly, for if we loose this opportunity, it is not probable that another will present itself. The people of Whiteoak township must stir them selves also, as the communication of" "Farmer" published in iast week's paper, advocating run ning the route over the old Gore Survey through Concord townscip, has awakened the people along the line to their interests, and they are hard at work. There is danger, therefore, of Whiteoak loosing the line and she mast move quickly. She is able to subscribe more than she has, and she T.t'.-r do it if she wants the road. A large delegation of tho boat citizens of New Lexington came over to Hillsboro Monday last to wait on the Railroad Committee and advocate a new line north of Hillsboro, namely, to run tbe line through New Lexington to Sabina iustead of through New Vienna or Leosburg. These gentle men were iu earuest, and claimed that they had a much shorter aud easier line to build aud that they could raise whatever quota was allotted to them this week. The Railroad Company couid not entertain their proposition however, as they had giveu their pledge to the Leesbarg and New Vienna people, that which ever raised the money first would secure the line. It is to be regretted that New Lexington did not move sooner, as she might have secured the road. Meetings were held last Friday afternoon aed evening at Mayaville and Aberdeen, which were attended by President Bell, Col. Ticard and 8. T. Hough, Esq., of this placa, the latter rentleman distinguishing himself at MaysviUe by making a stirring speech, which is very highly spoken of. A meeting was also held at Russellville Saturday afternoon, and we are assured that the stock on the southern end of the line will al! be raised this week. Meetings arc being held at Maysville every night this week, her people know no each word as fail. The meetings to be held this week are all on the northern end of the line, and are as follows : At Mt. Sterling, this evening, (Tuesday), to be attended by President Bsll, Col. Picard and R. T. Hough. At Jeffersonville, same time, to be attended by Dr. Smith, A. S, Glascock and J. W. Patterson. At Sabina and Conterville on Wednesday and Thursday evenings, to be attended by Wesley Copes, .Josiah Stevenson, Thos. Hlbben, F. W. Armstrong aud D. F. Scott. New Vienna this evening (Tuesday), to be at tended by Gov. Hart and Col. Wm. H. Trimble. AU of the above named gentlemen will spend the remainder of the week on the line north of this place, assisting in any way that is possible. They are determined to have all the stock raised by Saturday night, and are confident of success. Let ns hope that it may be so, and that Highland county will not be outdone by her neighbors but that she will be able to report her lull quota raised. Arrested for Stealing Wheat. On Wednesday of last week, Policeman Stevenson and Detective McConnaughey went out to Mrs. Bernard's, about four milcst west of town and arrested Wm. Dent, a colored man who is a tenant on her farm, charged with stealing five bush els of corn, as much wheat and a number of grain sacks from her barn on the 18th inst. Dent was brought here, lodged iujiil, and on Monday was ar raigned before 'Squire A. Harojan waiving an examination he was bound over to court in the sum of $300, which he failed to give and was commit ted to jaiL It seems that he stole the grain during the night and broke a lock to get to it, which makes it a penitentiary offense. A number of wheat sacks were found in his possession, and Detective McCon naughey informs us that they have a sure case against him. Mc. says he is labor ing to reduce the Republican majority.

THREE INTERESTING LETTERS FROM OLD HIGHLANDERS. SALINA, CROWN POINT AND BLAINE EACH HAVE A WORD. ADVICE TO LABORING MEN, THE COUNTRY, CLIMATE, SOIL, &c., &c. SALINA, KAN., Jan, 7, 1881. Dear News: Enclosed please find money order for $1.50, as subscription for the News for 1831, for we cannot do without it. It is so much like getting a letter from home every week that we hail its coming. Not havtng seen anything in the News for some time from this part of Kansas, a few items may interest some of your read ers. This county (Saline) is one of tbe most productive in the State. The crops in a portion of the county were short last year, but we have thousands of bushels of grain to spare, notwithstanding the many repjrts that have gone out about starv ing Kansas," I do not deny that there is some suffer ing in Kansas, but it is in the western and southwestern portions of the State. As you know, there are some people that will suffer anywhere. Many of these people could get work to do if they would do it, but laziness triumphs. There is nothing to hinder people from getting along well here if they will work, and have luck and health. This is a very healthy county. This portion of Kansas is destined to become one of the garden snota of America. We need railroad competition, and 1 think if somebody would take Jay Gould out iuto the woods and tie him to a swinging limb for a while, we would get it, as there is strong talk now of a line from Leaven worth to Salina and on to the northwest. We do not realize as large prices here generally as you do in Ohio, but one man can do a third more farming" here, as the ground does not bake as it does in Ohio. I can take a Woods Self-Binder, thre horses and a good hand, and cut and shock from 100 to 123 acres of grain, all in good time. Thus you see the large amount of labor one man can do here. It is true, we have some disadvantages, hut not so. great" as some might think. Fuel is thought by some to be very high, but I can go five miles and buy wood in the tree enough to last us two years, for eight dollars, and it is only pastime to cut and haul it in winter, as we have but lit tle to doafter our corn is gathered. Fruit is getting plentier every year. Good winter apples sold on our streets last fall for from 80c. to $1 per bushel; wheat is from Coto75cts.com; 30cts ; hogs $3.50 to $4 gross; potatoes 80cts. to$l and other things in proportion; dry goods and groceries about the same as in your town. We have good church and school priv- ilges. Salina has two large school build ings, seven ohurches and eight or nine societies, and then there are meetings on Sunday in almost every school house in the country. We have had a very cold winter o far, and not much snow until this week, but it is snowing now and looks as though we might get a good one. Now I do not pen these few lines to try to induce some one to leave a good home in Ohio and come West, for that has been doue too much. I kuov that families have come to Kansas that had better have stayed where they were, and some have stayed back that had better have come, but if anybody wants to come, I say come on. There is plenty of room. For our part we have come to stay, aud expect to stay as long as we can do as well as we have done. Think we will not starve as long as we work. f Respectfully, J. J. Kerns. CROWN POINT, Jan. 12, 1881. Editou News: A few items from our county (Ottawa) may be of interest to some of your readers. Population accord ing to our late census, 10,325 ; was organ ized in 1S68, with a population of less than 500. It is centrally located in the most fertile portion of the great Solomon Valley; watered by the Solomon river, whioh traverses the entire county from northwest to southeast, and by the Saline river, which crosses the sotithwe-t corner, besides numerous smaller streams. The Solomon and Saline afford superior water power. Minneapolis, the county seat, is situated near the center of the county, on the Solomon river, and also on the Solo mon branch ol the U. P. R. R. (formerly K. P.), 195 miles from Kansas City. Popu lation 1,084. It is like a city spoken of in lhe good book, "beautiful for situation, and set on a hill," &c. It lias three grain elevators, 8 dry goods stores, 3 banks, 7 groceries, 2 hardware stores, 3 drug stores, 2 jewelry stores, furniture store, 2 lumber yards, 4 churches and all the doctors and lawyers needed in this healthful and peaceful country. Number of car loads shipped the past year: grain 500, stock 230. Five'ycars ago on-sixth of the county was government land, now there is little or no vacant land to be found. Good im proved land, desirable location, can be purchased at $5 to $10 per acre. The county is well supplied with schoob, having about 80 districts, with an average of about 6 months school per year. Our schools are uuder the supervision of a County Superintendent, which I think is worthy of imitation by other States. There are five papers printed in the connty four in Minneapolis and one in Delphos all Republican but one (Greenback). We have no use for a Democratic paper. The soil is a rich, sandy loam, depth from one to three feet, and very productive. In 1S78 wheat averaged in the county 2 bushels per acre, while some fields yielded over CO bushels per acre. This will sound rather "fishy" to a Highlander, but it is nevertheless true. There is considerable timber along the streams. Coal is found in different places at a depth of 10 to 30 feet. It is selling at the banks at 3 per ton. We are having a fine winter, except that old Mercury geU on a Jua occasionally reached 23 below zero Sunday morning, Jan. 9th th4 coldest for several years. Ottawa. ! BLAINE, PLATT Co., Jan. 14, 1881. Editor News: In your issue of Dec. 23, 1 read a rather ingnant denial by your correspondent "Ottawa," of "P.'s" asser tion regarding western Kansas. Now, af ter a residence of five years in Kansas, I think I know something about the re sources of the State. I love the Slate I have chosen for my home, but I love the truth better. Having been through al most every organized county in the State, and some of the unorganized ones, I must say that "P.'s" estimate of Kansxs is very nearly correct. And that the one-sided letters of just such correspondents as "Ot tawa," coupled with the glowing false hoods of R. R. companies and interested land agents, U leading many families to ruin, and doing a great injury to our State, by inducing emigration to our State which we do not need, and can not take care of namely, very poor men who expect to se cure homesteadi or cheap R. R. land, and support their families by labor. Now the fact is, our labor supply has been for sev eral years much greater than the demand. Add to this the fact, that within the last two years, not less than fifty -thousand southern negroes whose capital will not average seventy-five cents to the head have been run in, and yon will see there is very little chance for the laboring man. I know plenty of men with families to support, who would be glad to have labor at fifty cents per day, but cannot obtain it. Now I am perhaps as well acquainted with "Five Points," and all other portions of Brown and Highland counties, as "Otta wa" .and, as one "who has been there," let me advise everyone who is making a good living, voa in "Prw Iu'uHj," tu there; and especially to laboring men let me say, do not come trsst, There in nothing here for you but "Delusion," and a weary, hopeless struggle with poverty. No, Mr. Editor, what we want is men of capital who will help us develop our re sources and help to buildup our young State not retard it by living on its chari ty. To such we gay come and welcome, and while you are helping us, we will help you. There is hardly a business, except the mercantile that cannot he profitably engaged in by men of capital and brains. For tha business of stock-raising, our State U surpassed by none ; our broad prairies furnish a free range for summer, and hay for winter, while corn can be bought at from 12 to 20 cents per bushel delivered at your cribs. While Kansas City, St. Louis aud Chicago furnish us alueretive market. Sheep-raising in the near future, is bound to be a great feature of our in dustries. Again we say come if you can bring at least a thousand dollars with you. If you cannot, for your own sake, stay away. Kaxsan. NEW PUBLICATIONS. Good Literature. This is the appropriate name of a week, ly newspaper at 50 cents a year, which is certainly one of the most marvelous products of the new famous "Literary Revolution." It gives for this pittance about twice as much reading matter as any of the if 4 magazines, and it is filled with the latest news, that is worth know ing, about books and authors condensed, pointed opinions of the best literary crit ics concerning new and standard books, with choice readings from those of the greatest interest, reprinting some valuable books entire. It is just now giving "Uarda, a Romance of Ancient Egypt," a historic al novel ol remarkable interest and beau ty, wTiich has justly won rank by the side of Scott's '"Ivanhoe," Bulwer's "Pompeii," and Kingsley's "Hypatia." A series ol artioles an "The Choice of Books," by Mr. Chas. F, Richardson, is worth, to any thoughtful reader, far ore than the cost of the paper. A specimen copy will be seat free, or the paper will be sent three months on trial for the nominal price of 10 cents, by the publishers, the American Book Exchange, Tribune Building, New York City. The London correspondent of the New York Times writes as follows to that pa per, under date of December 22d : "As an example of English good feeling toward American work, Scribner'a Maga zine reached a sale of over l.,000 copies, a circulation larger than Cornhill, Mac millan, Belgravia, Fraser, Blackwood or the Contemporary. The portrait of Glad stone in Scribner has given great satisfac tion to the premier's family and friends." The contents of Appletons' Journal for Febuary are as follows : "The Veter ans of Yesterd ay," in Three Parts (Part Second,) from the French of Erckmann Chatrian; "Rambles among Books" (1) Country Books; "Parliamentary Anec dotes'"; "Buddhists and Buddhism in Eur mah," by Shway Yoe; "The Irish Land Question," by T. E. C. Leslie; "Shakes peare's Traducers"; ''S. Lady's Wander ings in Japan"; "Music," by the Rev. H. R. Haweis ; "A Deadly Feud," a Sketch from the German of Rudolph Lindau; "Decorative Decorations," by Grant Allen; "Romances of Ancient Egypt"; "A Strange Story"; "Love in Dreams," a Poem, by John Addington Symonds. Edi tor's Ta ble: Alleged Decline in the Handicrafts Recent Art in Bookbinding American Wood-Er.graving The American Physical Type. Notes for Readers. Single Num ber, 25 Cents. Yearly Subscription, $.1C0. The North American Review fur Febru ary tis the literary phenomenon cf the month. First we have an ean:e".t and patriotic article by General Gran", advo cating the Nicaragua Canal project. The Autocrat of the Breakfast Table, Oliver Wendell Holmes, follows with an essay entitled "The Pulpit and the Pew," writ ten in the best spirit of the Christian philosopher, in which he endeavors to show the need hehelievts to exist for a re vision of the prevalent theological creeds. Under the quaint title of "Aaron's Rod in Politics," Judge A. W. Tourgee empha sizes the obligation imposed upon the Ile publican party by the Chicago platform, of making provision for educating illiter ate voters. James Freeman Clark mak. a valuable contribution to the discussion of the authorship of Shakespeare's play. The grave evils that may result from the partisan character of the United State Supreme Court are pointed out by John T. Morgan. The sixth of Mr. Charnay'sj papers on the "Ruins of Central America'' is devoted to a description of the Pyra mids of Comoacaleo, which must rar.k among the most attipcnduous monuments ever erected by man. Finally, Walt Whit man writes of "The Poetry of the Fuiiue.'' Tha Review is sold by booksellers gener ally. The Midwinter (Ferkcaky) SV UBN"i:a has always beou a special number, as rich as the choicest literary matter and the most beautiful wood engravings can m ike it. Of last year's midwinter number the London Times said : '"It is a really mag nificent triumph of American pictorial art and literary genius." The English pub lishers of Scribner have telegraphed for 17,000 copies of the present number, an advance ot 6,000 upon his orders last year, and the largest edition ot an American magazine ever sent to England in fact it is said to be larger than the monthly sales of any KmjlUh magazine. The American edition of Svribner has grown during 18S0 about 20,000 copies. A delightful feature of the magazine this year is a series of sparkling noveletls, or condensed novels, instead of a serial story. "A Fair Barbarian," the story of a piquant American girl in England, by Mrs. Frances Hodgson Burnett, begins in this February number with a' twenty-two page installment, and wiil run througii three issues. Since the death of Georg Eliot it may be said that Mrs. Burnett commands a larger English speaking au.li ence than any other womin. Her novel ette will be followed by one by George Yv. Cable, author of "The Grandissimers'etc, and afterward Boyesen's ''Q ieen Titania" will be published. "Peter the grat," Eu gene Schuyler's historical work, be,nm in February, IS.iO, will be fiui.-b.ed in Octo ber of this year. By means of the recent ly published special offers of ScRtasEit, the whole of this great work, with its wealth of illustrations, can be had at a very low priej, in connection with a year's sub scription. All book-sellers can give the terms. In the same ratio that Ser.rBN'Ex's Monthly is prospering, St. Nicholas, the famous magazine for girls and boys, issued by the same publishers, grows apace. About 100,000 copies of the Christmas (December) number were sold, while the January number has been for some time out of print. Ullljiboro Prices Carrcni.
