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

'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

Nocturnal Correepiiidencc.
Mil. Kuitok: It is said that thero is
a condition of human life whore there
live beings liko ourselves endowed with
all our faculties of leellng, tasting,
smelling, hearing, and ono additional
called seeing. What that Is no one has
ever bceu ublo to explain to any under
standing. It is said that a tiling called
light strikes two points abovo tho nos
trils, two partly vacant places and oar-
r!os an image to the brain so that with
out touching one may reuognlzs ids
friends. Thus we need not feel or
smell our friends, or hear them to rcc
osiilzo them Wo kuow them from
afar. Incmllblo as this may sound
ineomprohenslqle uslt is, there aro some
people believe it They have oven pre
tended to Introduce such beluga among
us and havo applied tests that if applied
to any ordinary fact would bo porfect
pi oof. Asked to explain how thoe be
ings oxerolsu this pretended sense thoy
havo the usuiriuiee to toll us it cau not
bo explained because wu havo no sense
onpablo of comprehending 1. 0. II wo
could sco wo could understand itl
Yourd Respectfully,
Noo Yes,
Tho obovo latter we recolvod from
one of tho cavo dwellers whoro owing
to perpetual darkness, neither men nor
flshos nor ntiv living beings, havo eyos
It sounds straugo to us.
