Old Scenes Revisited The Platte

Cor. Ohio State Journal.
Columbus, Neb., Sept. 1, 1881.
After an absence of some twenty
years, the writer rcviBits the Bceue
of his former efforts as a pioneer of
tho great West this flonriehiug and
prosperous little city of 2,500 inhab
itants named after tho Capital City
of Ohio, and destined some day to
rival it as a railroad center. It is
situated on the north bank of Loup
river, four or five miles above lis
confluence with the Platte, on a high
level plateau, and already makes
quite an imposing appearance as
you approach it from the east Al
though this valley was originally a
treeless plain, the town is well sha
ded with cottonwood, elm, box elder
and other trees. The surrounding
country is also putting on tho ap
pearauce of a wooded country, as
nearly every farmer has planted
groves of timber, some of which are
now quite largo and look liko our
original Ohio foreBt. I prophecy
that in one hundred years, or per
haps in fifty years from this time,
Nebraska will bo a better wooded
country than Ohio or any of the
Eastern States, for the reason that
bore the people are making every
effort to produce timber, while in
the East the effort is to destroy it, in
order to .make more fieldb. This
couutry was originally all field, and
the prime necessity and want now
is trees to serve as sheltor to both
man and beast, and as a protection
to fruit.
This part of the great West has
made wonderful progress since my
first visit of twenty years ago. At
that time the uumber of farms be
tween Columbus and Omaha could
bo counted on the fingers; now tho
farms aro continuous all tho way
a distance of ninety-fivo miles and
extend toward the west and north
indefinitely. In spito of the very
unpropitious season, tho corn crop
is going to bo good. Corn that was
planted early, and which has been
well tended, will produce consider
ably more than the average Ohio
crop. Somo fields will run 75 to SO
bushels to tho acre 103 bushels is
not an unusual crop in good sea
sons. Wheat has not turned out as
well as usual perhaps not more
than a half crop will be garnered
this year. Potatoes aro of an excel
lent quality, but not very great in
quantity, owing to the extremely
dry season. Other crops aro fair,
considering the season. What do
you think of a 42-pound watermel
on? Myself and somo eight or ten
friouds devoured such a one, and it
was all wo could do. Melons of all
kinds flourish here, tho soil bciug
something like that of tho Pickaway
plains near Circleville.
Columbus now has four railroads
centering here tho Uuiou Pacific,
which passes through from Omaha
to Sau Praucisco ; tho B. & M., con
necting Columbus with Lincoln, tho
Capital of tho State; and two
branches of tho Union Pacific, the
one running from this place to Mad
ison, north some fifty miles, and the
other up tho Loup Valley to Albion.
All tho stations along these roads
eera to be flourishing. Tho coun
try north of hero is very undulating
in character, and is interspersed
with numerous small streams, form
ing many charming little valleys.
Land can bo purchased anywhere
within ten miles of a station at H
to I0 per acre, either on long time
or at a good reduction for cash.
Cattle raising is yet tho most pro
ductive business, as pasturage is
abundant, and a good quality of hay
for winter feeding can be made from
tho wild prairie grasB. Tho meadow
lands are generally situated in the
valleys and depressions in the hills,
although much hay is also cut on the
uplands. It is all nativo grass, and
very nutritious.
I find all of the pioneers of twenty
years ago either well fixed on large
farms in tho country, or at tho head
of flourishing business houses in the
city. They came hero without cap
ital and grow up with the country,
and the result is they havo attained
to position and wealth which would
havo been entirely out of reach of
many of them in the older States
and who came here with a combined
capital not oxceeding $3,C J, who
to-day are worth from $10,1 3 to
?30,0- ) each.
There are quite a number of Co
lumbus boys hero, who are promi
nent in business and in official sta
tions, and all doing well. Yon meet
Ohio people everywhere, and, as in
the affairs of the Nation, they are
generally found at the top of the
heap. Platte.
Gymnastics as a. Care or DI.
Boerhaave, the great Dutch phy
sician, inscribed on the wall of his
lecture-room, "I gaye the medicine,
God cured the disease." He was
far in advance of tho doctors of his
era, and promulgated ideas which
were then novel, but which science
has since made common-place.
In an age of dosing, when quanti
ty was as much thought of as quali
ty, he said :
"When I reflect on the immunity
of hardworking people from the
effects of wrong and ovorfeoding, I
cannot help thinking that most of
our fashionablo diseases might be
cured mechanically, inetead of chem
ically, by climbing a bittcrwood
tree, or chopping it down, if yon
like, rather thau swallowing a de
coction of its disgusting leaves."
Each schoolboy now knows that
physical vigor is the basis of bodily
health, and may only be retained by
exercise. But in those days few
physicians cared to utter the -truth,
even if they themselves kuew it.
The ancient Greeks, knowing that
an effeminate man is half sick, pro
vided gymnastic exorcises. They
used these to promote health and
prevent disease. An Old Greek
doctor, Asclcpiadese, is quoted as an
authority by Dr. Oswald to onforco
the idea that gymnastics will cure
The philosopher had found that
health could be preserved, and if
lost, restored by physical exercise
alone, and not only discarded the
use of internal remedies, but made
public declaration that ho would
forfeit all claim to the title of physi
cian if he should ever fall sick or
die but by violence or extreme old
Asclepiadese kept his word, for
ho lived upward of a century, and
died from the effects of an accident.
He used to prescribe a course of
gymnastics for every form of bodily

Grandpa's Baby Musn't
Get Tired.
When one of tho trains of this city
came in at midnight a few nights
ago, an old man was found sleeping
in one of the seats; the conductor
flashed his lantern in his face ; the
brakeman stirred him up, and one or
two passengers looked at him care
lessly, but no person seemed to be
long to him. He was neat and clean,
but thin and wasted by old ago or
privation. All sorts of troubles
were mapped out on his clean, with
ered face, but tho main thing just
then was to get him awake and on
his feet and out of the car.
"I say, old man," yelled the con
ductor, in a seven-league voice, "got
out of this; do you hear? This is
Dctro.t. If you'vo got any friends
they'll bo looking for you."
Ho opened his oyes so wide and
sudden that the brakeman and con
ductot and the curious passengers
fell bs.ck on each other in a heap,
but only his lips moved.
"Where's Grade?"
"Who?" asked the conductor, re
coveriag his official voice.
"Little Gracio grandpa's littlo
pet! I brought her with mo. Is
6he in she hero?"
"I guess he is not wido awake
yet," said the curious passenger.
"Supp380 you help him to his feet?"
Conductors aro expert in helping
people to their feet, and this one
was no oxecption. Ho took tho old
man by the coat collar and 6tood
him up, but ho sank down again the
next r.iomcut limp and motionless.
Just then a depot hand came in.
"Tho baggage master wants to
know svhat you're goin' to do with
that ititeof a deal box over there.
He don't want auy of that kind left
over, and there ain't no direction on
it but'Gracie.'"
"Thi.t's her!" said tho old man,
and he stood up fcobly. "Take mo
there. Wo'ro going a long, long
jourucp Gracio aud me; a long,
long jC'Uruey, but it don't seem as if
I knev the way right clear."
They took him into tho depot and
laid him on ono of the benches, aud
put his old carpet-bag nnder his
head, but he still fretted for his
"leetle Gracie pet," and at last they
consob'd him by telliughim ehowas

be disturbed.
"We've a long, long journey to
go," hn kept saying tobimsolf; "aud
grandma's baby musn't get tired. It's
a long way, a long way.,;
"The little box," with Gracie writ
ten upon it in lead pencil, was safe
enough with the other "freight," and
the old man slept peacefully at last.
Some kind soul throw a rug over
him n:ar morning, and asked him
what i rain he was waiting for, but
all the answer be made was a feeble
"Thaat'eo; call mo at Bunrise.
We're going a long journey, Gracie
and mj."
Ho was called at sunrise by a
voico that none may refuse, and
when ii flood of rosy light shone in
to the dreary room ho was up and
away gone on his long journey.
Only the worn out body was there,
and yesterday it was laid away with
"little Gracie" in the strangers' lot
at Mount Elliott, alone, unknown,
yet possibly in as "sure hope of a
gracious resurrection" as if marked
by ninsty feet of monumental clay.

A New Remedy Suggested by a Mill
nesota Physician.
In a letter from Minneapolis,
Minn., to the Chicago Tribune, in
which he declares that no cough
mixture can reach the lungs, Dr. R.
D'Unger says :
I need not describe the symptoms
of consumption, as they are so well
known and so frequently behold that
even the most unintelligent can di
agnose the disease from the hectic
spots in the cheeks, the terrible ex
hausting cough, the purulent expec
toration, and wasting body; nor
will I here put down the thousand
and one opinions already printed as
to its causation. It will be enough
to say that, when it is once seated,
strenuous efforts to check its pro
gress must be made. Nature her
self always tries to do this, aud,
with slight aid, she usually suc
ceeds. Be hopeful, then, yo afflict
ed, ones.
Let us compare life to a burning
lamp. If we-supplyoil as rapidly
as the flame consumes it, tho wick
remains unburnt, and tho lamp
throwBOUt its given light; but if we
fail to supply tho oil needed to pro
duce the flame, it is a foregone con
clusion ; the wick becomes consum
ed, tho light grows dim, flickers,
and finally goes out altogether. In
other words, tho light dies because
there is too much oxygen and not
enough carbon. So it is with a
consumptive's life. The disease he
suffers from is a wasting one, au
internal fever which consumes the
carbon in his blood more rapidly
than the food he eats can supply it.
If carbon was furnished as fast as
the disease exhausted it, the body
would not waste; if it was put into
the blood in excess of what the dis
ease required, there would bo an
increase in tho strength aud bulk of
tho body, instead of a decrease.
Like tho lamp, tho supply of oil in
the body must bo equivalent to the
demand or in excess of it. If this
be not so, the life, like tho wick,will
bo consumed.
Some months ago the little daugh
ter (aged fourteen) of a truukmaker
in this city, one Mr. Garden I am
permitted to use his name was pro
nounced a hopeless consumptive ;
aud to have seen her at that time
ono would have supposed there was
good ground for tho decision, as she
was a more skeleton, had a terrible
cough, expectorated over half a pint
a day of greenish, blood-streaked
tuberculous matter, and was so ex
ceedingly nervous that she could
scarcely sleep at all, night or day.
She had been doctored a long time
with cough aud consumption speci
fics, and ono or two physicians had
tried their skill on her, but without
avail, her lifo gradually drawing to
its close. Meeting her father who
was almost heart - broken at the
thought of soon losing her ono day,
I gave him this prescription :
One half pound finely cut up beef
steak (fresh).
One drachm pulverized charcoal.
Four ounces pulverized sugar.
Four ounces rye whisky.
Ono pint boiling water.
Mix all together, let it stand in a
cool place over night, and give from
one to two teaspoonsful liquid and
meat before each meal.
This was tried, and in four or five
weeks this little girl was so rosy and
healthy, free from all cough and
other symptoms of diseaso, tbat it
was considered almost a miraclo in
the neighborhood in which sho lived.
What caused this great change?
Simply the supplyiug of her system
with more carbon than the disease
could exhaust, thereby giving naturo
the upper hand in tho conflict.
I havo used this preparation very
frequently, and have never found it
to act otherwise than beneficially.
The dose should bo small at first,
until tho stomach becomos used to
it, and then gradually increased.
Let all consumptives try it who
read this, weighing themselves be
fore they commence, aud again after
they have taken it for a week or ten
days. To their astonishment they,
will discover that, instead of their
wasting away, they (Fill gain in
strength and fleah. And then let
them be kind enough to report tho
result to the Chicago Tribune for the
benefit of tbat timid class of lung
sick pcoplo who are afraid to try
any remedy unless they pay one
dollar a bottle for it or double tbat
sum for a prescription.
Why He Comes.
Mr. Wood has Bpent the beat part
of his days in the swamps and ague
districts of Indiana, but hereafter
proposes to live in a better climate
and pursue the calling of agriculture
in a state where life is more endur
able and the reward of tho husband
man attended with greater certainty.
After carefully examining the situa
tion in Illinois, Iowa, Missouri aud
EansaB, he finally baits in the valley
of the Loup, purchases a large body
of land and settles down to live and
to draw around him many of his old
neighbors in Hoosierdom. Mr. W.
says no part of tho large section of
country traversed possesses such a
deep and uniform soil as he has
found in Nebraska, and nowhere has
he discovered such crop prospects as
are here presented. Nebraska's new
settler from Indiana is but a speci
men of the thousands who are find
ing homes in this Btate under similar
circumstances, and who are at no
distant day to occupy and cultivate
every foot of vacant land now await
ing settlement. They come here not
because of a scarcity of laud else
where, but because, having viewed
tho country, they are convinced
that, taking all advantages into con
sideration, the inducements which
Nebraska holds out for settlement
are equalled by few states and terri
tories and surpassed by none. Our
market facilities, church and school
advantages, excolleut climate, rich
soil and growing crops once scon
are convincing proof that no better
country for agricultural purposes
exists auywhere. Within tho next
two mouths thousands of these
home-seckera will visit this state,
and if they but take the time aud
incur tho expense of looking else
where first, no fear need be enter
tained of what their final decision
with reference to location will bo.

.- Whence Ills Wealth.
One of the richost Chinamen in
San Francisco is Mr. Chow Kow
Yup, who came to this country a
penniless Mongolian thief about sev
en years ago. All his wealth had
been obtained by committing to
memory four simple words, "You
saveo mo leper." Tho second night
'after his arrival ho broke into a dry
goods store, and was j ust carrying
away hi3 booty when a policeman
collared him, prepared to march him
down to the city hall. He made no
resistance, but innocently remarked,
"You savee me leper," and the offi
cer fled wildly toward North Beach,
giving his prisoner tho opportunity
to steal seven more undershirts, of
which he promptly availed himself.
He was only once brought into
court, being then charged with a
wholesale diamond robbery, and
when asked to plead guilty or not
guilty, he.simply repeated tho words
of his charm, in a voico at once
plaintive and full of expression.
The court was cleared in less than
thirty seconds, two of tho jury leav
ing their hats behiud, and the judge
his gold spectacle?, all of which Mr.
Chew Kow Yup appropriated, to
gether with tho looso change in the
clerk's drawer. Tho wealthy hea
then is entirely freo from leprosy.

There is a very pretty story told
how a lovely Jowess in a Russian

A great hulking ruffian entered her
shop and bought a loaf of bread.
After swallowing a couple of mouth
ful8, he threw himself on the gronnd
outside tho shop door ,and begnu to
howl piteously that he was poisoned
the Jows had poisoned him. Of
course, au infuriated crowd instant
ly assembled, and it would have
faired ill with our Jowess if sho had
not dashed out of tho shop aud
snatched tho bread out of tho im
postor's hands and began to eat it
in sight of them all. The crowd
stopped, thunder-struck; then a
broad grin dawned on every coun
tenance; then one of them called
out to her: "Alosha, lend me your
knout, will you?" Then the impos
tor started to his feet and scudded
off, pursued by a mischievous but
no longer sanguinary crowd.
An ingenious farmer, sticking a
fow nails into a clothes lino to keep
hisneighbor's cattle out of his pas

thinking no more about tho matter.
A sharper came along, saw the rope,
and begau to think about it. Ho
evolved tho "barbed wire" fence,
and tho very farmer from whom the
fellow got the idea has to pay the
sharp a tribute for the article which
he himself originally dcsigilcd. And
the income of tho monoply is estima
ted at $100,000 per month.
What pleases only for tho moment,
whether poetry, oratory or policy,
will die with tho moment. What
looks beyond the moment, will live
beyond tho moment. What speaks

make a conquest of tho unintelligent

gent many never reach tho intelligent
few, and will soon be forgotten by
the unintelligent many also.- -Dean
A Now Hampshire farmer agreed
to sell his farm for $2,000, but when
the day came he told the expectant
purchaser that his wifo was in hys
terics about the trade, and he 'guess
ed he'd have to back ont.' The pur
chaser complained, and finally asked
how much more would induce him
to sell. 'Well,' replied tho' thrifty
son of the Granite State, 'give me
$250 more, and we'll let her cry.'
A little girl, about three years old,

A little boy was asked recently
