Quite a humorous incident oc
curred the other day with ono of our
leading business men. Returning
home one evening from David City

his wife's speaking to the children :

elected for the ensuing year, viz:
President, Jonas Hedmau ; Secre
tary, Geo. S. Trumau ; Treas., Jos.
Webster. Additional members of
the Board, Albert Roso, Nils Miller,
Lafayette Anderson aud William B.
Coffin. A portion of the ground
has been laid out in lots, which will
be disposed of on reasonable terms,
and the location is one of the best for
the purpose iu Platte county.
Tho present condition of Co

that of Fremont a few years ago,

G. W. Wescotl, purchased a
valuable farm two miles north of
this city, and with hia family located
thereon about eleven mouths since,
and within that period his sou-iu-laws,
their families, and other
friends have arrived in tho county
until the number has reached thirty
two souls. Mr. Wescott and his
friends have purchased over GM0
acres of land, aud for that and other
improvements they have paid out
in mouey over $5,000. Such settle
ments and iilvcstmcuts speak well
for the location where made.
The National Live Stock Jour
nal for January, 1880, reports the
sale of a Kirklivington Duchess
heifer for $S00, and of the yearling
heifer Airdrie Duchess 8th by 23d
Duke of Airdrie out of Duchess 2d,
for $10,000. These sales were made
by Messrs. Avery, Murphy and Steb-
bins, uai of their herd of short horns
going to open up an A. &
yard on the burnt district
city. Quite an interesting incident
occurred over that tract Thursday.
The U. P. workmen were digging
post holes preparatory lo fencing it
in, according to orders from head
quarters, wheu Mr. Rickly, who
holds the property in charge for his
children, stepped upon the scene of
action and forbade any further pro
ceedings of the kiud in a very firm
tone. The "Boss" rather reluctantly
concluded to abido the consequen
ces, aud Mr. R. hastily enclosed the
lot with barb-wire.

Major IVorili'! Letter.
Ceres, Stanislaus Co., CaU
January 18th, 1SS0. S
Dear Joukkal: I have really
been moro negligent in my corres
pondence than I ever thought I
would be, but I shall plead want of
time and health. I have written
several short letters home, when I
was suffering so with asthma that I
could hardly hold the pen, and I am
very little better now. I arrived
here on the 10th inst., and went at
once to Dr. Cyrus Lee's, where I
have been since, and will remain
two or three weeks, at the end of
which time, if I am no better than
now, shall probably return home.
Mr. Lee is suffering fearfully with
asthma; ho tells me this is his first
attack in two years. I have not seen
Thos. Lee but am told that he is
suffering from the same complaint.
I cau't say that I am stuck on Cali
fornia; of courso the climate is very
different from ours, while at the
same time it is almost as disagreea
ble; no real freezing cold weather,
but a cold damp air that chills one
more than dry cold. I have never
visited a city iu winter where more
wraps aud furs were worn than in
'Frisco and Oakland, and as to fruit
the same kinds are higher here to
day than in Columbus. This is also
so highly spoken of as a honey mak
ing country. If it is, I have failed
iu my travels to see the proof posi
tive. One would see more of the
genuine proof in tho Indian Terri
tory iu oue day's travel than he
would here in a month, i.e., accord
ing to my observations. Well I
reckon I had better begin where I
left off with my last. After a night's
rest in Virginia City, I called on
Captain Mathewson (an ex-army
friend) and we visited the miues. I,
of course, could not stand the pres
sure of venturing down the shafts,
hut noted the process of sending
people down, and also bringing ore
up. The cars (which arc all iron)
aro lowered into the shaft, filled
with ore, hoisted, run out on an iron
rail some three or four hundred feet
to tho stamp or crushing mill, aud
dumped into hoppers which carry it
under the stamps. The mill wo vis
ited was running eighty stamps, and
of all the rattle-tc-bang noises that 1
ever heard this beat. Our guide
could only talk by sign, and as I am
some on that, we got along nicely.
From hero the crushed ore, which
has had water turned onto it, is car
ried in a tight sluice-box half a mile
to the pan mill, where there were
two hundred pans at work grinding
this stuff as fine as tho finest Hour;
from this the metal is gathered with
quicksilver, and then put in the
retort, where the heat is so great
that the quicksilver is forced out,
leaving nothing hut the Amnlg:un,a
ji n ...i.j ui iMiicu i saw and
was inquisitive enough to ask how
much mouey it was worth and was
told thirty-five thousand dollars.
This is then made into large bars
and sent to Carson to tho mint.
About now my train was ready and
I bid my friend farewell, boarded,
and went to Carson, where I spout
the night and Now Year's day with
friends; also had a nice ride with
the celebrated "Hank Monk," which
filled my ambition to tho brim. I
took tho evening train and landed in
San Francisco the next morning at
10:50. Well, I shall have to take a
good rest boforo attempting to tell
you what I have seen in this won
derful city, so good-bye for the
present. Very truly,
This is ono of tho very best books
of the season, aud contains, tho illus
trated life aud travels of General
Grant, a brilliant record of his re
markable career, from his boyhood's
homo to tho completion of his ex
traordinary journey around the
world, the guest of queens and em
perors, the honored of all nations.
The hook is a truo history from tho
time he hauled wood to St. Louis, to
his reception by kings and emper
ors of the Old World. The author,
J. T. Hcadlcy, the prince of descrip
tive writers, has visited in person
most of the places visited by General
Grant's parly, and the descriptions
of them are taken chiefly from his
own note books. His histories arc
standards, admired for their concise
ness and pictorial power. The work
is published in one elegant volume
of over 850 pages, printed from large
clear type, ou fiuo-toned and super
calendered paper, is enriched by
about 250 illustrations, and is bound
in elegant style. Mr. C. L. McClure
at Doland's Columbus Drug Store
two doors north of the post-office, is
agent for the sale of the work in
A Slight Correction.
PiATTK Centkk, Jan. 23, 1880.
Ed. Journal: In a late issue of
your paper, among some items from
this place, your correspondent
("Jowler") made aa assertion,which
led some to believe that I had some
connection with the statement afore
said. I knew nothing whatever of
the action of Mr. "Jowler," till I
saw the article in the Journal. The
pupils under my charge will bear a
favorable comparison with any
school in the county, taking air
things into consideration, yet I think
his statement rather sweeping; but
if such is your candid opinien, thanks
Mr. "Jowler." No harm done any
way. Yours respectfully,
J. J. Mauguax.
A Trip up tlic Vullcy.
Your correspoudent took a pleas
aufrido to Genoa, Thursday, in com
pany with Geo. WiHard. In passing
Col. Stevens's place near the city, in
dications of thrift are visible, and
George will no doubt have an early
garden next spring.
Pat. Murray's corral was filled
with over 200 fine looking cattle. He
was clearing a little patch of timber
on his farm, probably for fire wood.
Thence we next beheld the new
railroad. Lost creek depot, at the
Junction, is a creditable structure.
To see this new road running thro'
the county is only evidence that Ne
braska, in general, and Platte county
in particular, is fast approachiug
note worthy standing in this couu
try. Next we see the grade to
Genoa, an air line to the junction. It
is thought that rails will be laid, and
cars running on that branch by Feb
ruary. The farms along tho road
iudicate enterprise, aud the stock
interests are looked after. Farmers
seem to realizo the fact that stock
raising is their best hold.
The sightly residence of Will Wal
ton looms up like a picturesque
cottage on the distant bluff, aud we
next come to the crookedly located
houso owned by our straight Quaker
friend Geo. Trueman. His place is
indeed in a remarkably thrift condi
tionhis great flock of heavy-wool-ed
sheep and stock of overy kiud,
besides the excellent appearauco of
everything but the "diagonally sit
uated" residence tell the story.
We next land at Gonoa. This
place is rapidly improving, and we
predict it to be a flourishing little
city, inasmuch as its geographical
location and railroad aud water
power facilities will make it such.
Nance county will undoubtedly be
one of tho foremost in Nebraska. It
is being filled up with well-to-do
citizens, and everybody appears to
bo active and wide awake. It is
hoped that their county affairs will
soon be sottled, so that its citizens
will know no distinction aud that a
Fullertonian will bo just as good as
a Genoaite and a Genoaite just as
good as a Fullertonian, and that
peace aud harmony will reign su
preme throughout tho entire county.
So mote it be. Equality.
The Slater' Hospital.
The same enterprise and push that
was showu in tho construction of
the Monastery aud tho school house
has been shown on the hospital. It
will he remembered that the build
ing is frame, to bo veneered with
brick. This latter will bo done so
soon as the weather will permit. If
the weather shall permit plastering
will bo begun shortly, aud work
hurried along, to provide for the
care of patients at the earliest date
possible. The insil rP"'1" wUI'K
is nearly finished. The building
fund has not all becu provided, and
solicitation by the Sisters will bo
made for money to complete the
structure. Every intelligent person
knows tho character of these insti
tutions, which havo received the
support of people of all creeds and
conditions, and which make no dis
crimination whatover in the bestow
al of their charity. Lot every good
man aud woman who would sec
human suffering alleviated give of
their means to this enterprise.
From David Anderson, who was
in Omaha with a shipment of hogs
when, Boyd's gicat packing estab
lishment was destroyed by fife, we
learn that Mr. Boyd's individual
loss is about $100,000, aud that this
is the third great loss he has sustain
ed since starting the packing busi
ness eight years ago. Besides this
great loss personally to Mr. Boyd,
Mr. Anderson says it is the most
serious misfortuno to Omaha and tho
hog trade throughout the State, that
could have happened. Hundreds of
dealers from all over the state are
financially affected by this terrible
blow. Also that about ono hundred
poor laborers iu Omaha aro thus
unexpectedly, iu the dead of winter
thrown out of employment. If Mr.
Boyd don't rebuild, the trado in
Nebraska will havo to look for a
market farther cast in tho future.

Tho greatest event of the week
w'aB a spelling-match between the
pupils of districts No. 4 aud 12, which
took place on Thursday evening, the
22d. At an early hour tho respect
ive champions, accompanied by their
numerous friends, began to arrive.
At eight o'clock, the room being
filled to its utmost capacity, the ex
ercises commenced. It was suggest
ed by the authorities that it would
be better to spell down ouce with
sides chosen from all present, to ac
custom the pupils to the peculiar
intonation of the pronouncing par
ties. This was done, and Martin
Hogan overcame all competitors in
this opening effort.
After a recess of five minutes the
pupils of the competing districts
were arranged by their leaders in
battle array for the grand contest.
After a well contested combat of
more than an hour in duration vic
tory was at length decided iu favor
of district 12. Deunis Flynu, one of
the pupils of said district, was the
triumphant party. It being now al
most ten o'clock, aud all feeling
jubilant and not at all sleepy, it was
proposed to close tho proceedings
with a social dance. This was en
tered into with great zest by the
young people. It was kept up with
great vigor uutil two o'clock, a. m.,
when they all dispersed to their
homes, very well satisfied with the
night's amusement, and wishing oc
casions of the same kiud would occur
more frequently. Cau.
