Wo gtve, from tho newspapers the figures of the assessments of tbrco coun ties this week, Holt, Atchison nnd Nod away. They aro taken from tho news papers, nud may not bo accurate In all respects, but thoy show on oxtraordl- nary difference us to values. For in fiance, Nodawaj has about seven times 'more horses than we have, yet they are valued less than twice as much. 8ho has throe times moro catile valued about twice as much, and twice as many hogs valued lcs than twlco as much, nnd so on. Suroly if those fig ures bo correct, there ought to bo fome inquiry as to tho hows and whys. Hero Aro the items from Nodaway, nd below aro thnso from Holt. Tako notlco also that for all Nodaway has almost doublo our population, stands Heventh in tho State, while Holt is some where near the fiftieth, yet our money etc. nlmost as much nud personal property about the same in value.

Somo very interesting facts as to wine growing wo have been able to gathor on tho request of the Agricul tures! Department. Mr. Housoworth tells us that from his lot of 80 by 160 foet ho produuud last year over 800 gallons of wine, which ho j sells at 80 cents per gollon. He produced 24 bar rels. Ho says "ono stick lias furnished 4 buckets of wine," i. e. 12 pounds of grapes per bucket or 48 pounds of grapes from ouu vluo. Somo vines furnishing bunches weighing !i pounds each bunch. Tho amount of wine grown by sonio around town is as follows : . barrels, Spccrloirh 46 ' Hurst 13 ltoeekcr 6 Long 3 Gemecher 7 Kinsloy..., 6 Socman 2 Whitmor 3 Markt 2 Besides a largo quantity of grape sold. Six huudred and forty dollars worth of good wlno from ono lot in town is not u bud showing. This evinces what patent Industry will effect. We know somo pooplo who do not do so well on 640 acres of land. hero, if space wonld ,ygrnnt tho report of tho great premier l'liuco Msmarek upon the subject. Ho has recommen ded the government to tako somo steps to counteract the great evil which ho states arises from the manufacturing and sales of wines nnd beer. Should wo not tako this as a timely admonition? Wo welconio tho migrant but wo enn do'vitliouj tho wlno and beer. Thoy that sow tho wind shall reap tho whirl wind. If wo allow tho eniuc the effect will Inevitably follow. Hut you say it is folly to throttle these Industries. So It will bo as long as newspapers strive and suoiecdcd in lending public s'iitt nieut in favor of sush accursed Indus tries and against prohibition. This is a country where thu majority aro sup posed to rule. Again you tny tho.lnor dtnate appetites ot men nro not restrain ed by nrbctrary exactions, prohibitory enactments.

We havo lived where prohibition was so serere and thorough that wu have seen people arrested, lined and Imprisoned I merely because their breaths studied of liquor! For a fow months it utterly stamped out tho liquor trade by terror. Still human devices grow up, friends sympathized with those who had been prosecuted nnd soon tho liquor question became tho ruling power in politics, because those hostile to the law sought to put ofllcials 111 who would moderate ly enforco tho law.

Miss Ida Wilson, daughter of James L. Wilson, died at. her homo near Forbes, Mo. Fob. 9th 1881 in the 21th year of her age. Sho had been declining in health for moro than a j ear from that dread des troyer consumption and althoug grad ually getting weaker, since a sovoro ill. ness in tho latter par of summer, friends did not realize tho near approach of death. The night of final departuro she was taken suddenly worse nnd calling her parents told them tho end was near. Friends gathered around to receive her parting words and distributing to each somo memento ot'hor love, from anions her personal treasures, sho quietly fold ed her hands and passed away without a struggle. On Tuesday, tender hands laid her to rest in the new cemetery on tho hill ; tho cold snows and dead Autumn leaves vividly reminding ns of tho hopes that we bunnd with tins lovod 0110 carried away in tho bloom of youth. Thu dead we cannot recall. To thu living the N aster says: Ho yo also ready: for in such au hour us yo think not tho son of man eomcth.
