Ij CAilP, 3 MlLKS W'KST OF IvEARXF Y,l May 17th, ISr.l. f Eihtou Journal: The first part of the journey from Columbus to Grand It-land is nil dotted on each side of the U I. with farm houses :iud out btiihlinjr?, the majority or the dwellings beinir large and com fortable and many of them very co.stlj. Tlie crops look well. The tow us are all growing. Silver Creek has several new buildings in course of erection. Central City is quite a bigness town. We noticed tea ms on (lie street loaded with merchandise for St. Paul, on the Loup. Jlerc wc saw teams on the way to Lcadvillc from Iown, and an out lit for Deadwood, Ulack Hills, with over fifty cows to hlurt u dairy. Grand Island is larger than Co lumbus, and has some liner build ings. The public school in the south part of town is a splendid brick building, and bows date ISIS. Alda, 'Wood Kiver, Shelton and Gibbon are stations along the val ley ol Wood river, the rail road running parallel with the stream. This is one of the most fertile val leys of Nebraska, and is all settled tip. Here we taw tho best crops up to that time. The towns arc all growing cud appear to be doing a good busiucss. 'Kearney is only a small place, but Kearney Junction, 5 miles farther west and 19(1 miles west of Omaha, is tho boss town. It has more busi ucss houses than cither Columbus or Grand Island, with a population between 1500 and 2000. The bebt looking crops on the route are west of Kearney, fields of wheat over 100 acres as fine as could be found anywhere, and I believe all other crops grow as well as iu any other part or the State. There are in this camp now eleven wagous bound for Washington Ty., and bevcu for Montana. James Scully. Says a sententious writer, "No man is born wise." Just so.

Til IMBII II The object of all ambition should be to be hnppy at home. If we arc uot happy there wc cannot be elsewhere. "Where can I get good, cheap, plain" board?" asked tho traveler.

Gr.o. W. IIulst, Vice Pes' Julius A Heed. Edward A. Gekrard. Ahxei: Tuknek, Cashier. The following is a compilation from tho session laws of 1879, in re gard to fines. Five dollars for not turning to the right with a team when nicctinjr another on the public road, il any damage ensue. Twenty dollars fine if any person keeps iu his employ a drunken dri ver on any carriage u&cd as a public covcyance. Five dollars for each time a team is lclt btanding on any public road without being securely late:icd. Twenty dollars for leaving the team of a stage coach containing passengers, iu the road unfastened. Ten dollars for running a team or horse on the public road. Five dollars for driving faster then a walk over a bridge. Sctcard lie porter. 1'lic limenioii of Clemen. The Itcv. J. U. L'eltzly, Lutheran, is out with a calculation of the size of heaven, based on the Ptatement iu the Revolution that the angels "measured with the reed 12,000 fur longs. The length, the breadth, aud the height of it are equal." Taking eight furlongs to equal a mile, he comes to the following conclusions: "The heavenly city will be 1,500 miles in each of its dimensions, which will accommodate all the pcoplo of all the worlds with sep arate apartments. There will be precisely 39,5il,lCG,GGG,GGG,CG3,GCG rooms of fair size, and there will remain over 240,000,000,000,000,000 of mansions unoccupied, to be oc cupied by the aagcls." A Queer Kind of Milk. There is a cow-tree in Venezuela, the milk of which is very much like cows' milk or cream. They go each morning to the forest, make some deep cuts iu the trees, and in less than two hours their vessels arc full They use it to drink and to mix with tapioca and maize. The treo is from forty-five foot to 6ixty iu height, aud has Iongalternatc leaves. The Government of Venezuela sent to the Paris Exposition several bot tles of this milk, which has been aualyzcd by prominent scicntilic men. It contains sugar, casciuc and other things found in cow's milk, but is richer aud much more nutri tious. Prof. Aughcy, of the Nebraska State University, says of this same Boil iu Nebraska: "It can never be exhausted until every hill aud valley which compose it is entirely worn away. Owing to its remarkably fine comminuted silica, of which the bulk of the deposit consists, it pos sesses uatural drainage iu the high est degree, absorbing water like a huge sponge, and, iu time of drought sending up moisture from its great est depths, by capillaiy attraction, for the uceds of vegetation. This is the reason why, over all the region where the deposits prevail, the nat ural vegetation and cultivated crops arc rarclv dried or drowned out. Era vJf mJkE&m 1870. 1879.
