UltinF MENTION. The counsel for the gamblers appeared in the district court Saturday and illed n motion to have the anneal case from Jus tice Brown's court , where the gamblers sought to replevin their tools , reinstated on the docket. The case was dismissed from the district court on motion of At torney Lewis on behalf of the Law and Order league because the gamblers failed to appear and prosecute the case. The counsel now makes affidavit that he had bis petition pronared , but had mislaid it and supposed that it was on file in the district court. Coryoll Richardson lias filed a com plaint in Justice Brown's court charging Thurman Morris with obtaining money under false pretenses , and a warrant was issued for his arrest. Morris is at pres ent serving out a jail sentence for at tacking an old man in Olive Branch pre cinct a few days ago with a hatchet and on his release from his present confine ment he will bo rearrested on the oilier charge. Mary Jane Butcher has been com plained of in the district court as a vie lently insane person , and a warrant has been issued for her arrest.

The Hoily or au Otoo or Cuss County SIuii Found In nn Abandoned Colorado Sim It , Nebraska City Press : The Press is in receipt of a cony of the Lcadvillo Demo crat detailing the finding of the body of a man in an abandoned shaft near that wonderful city of the clouds. The ac count of one who was present , as given the Democrat reporter , was as follows : "Tho man was dressed in a heavy pair of corduroy pants covered with a pair of overalls , a OHIO blouse with brass buttons stamped with an eagle , and a blue flan nel shirt. He also had on an undershirt of red flannel , but no drawers. In his pants pocket waa ti knife , three silver del lars and two keys here they all are and in the inside pocket of his blouse was found this pocketbook. When you liuvo looked through it you will know just as much about tlio case as 1 do.

BIG BLOWS , Some Notnblo Cyclones anil Hurri canes. The recent clycloncs in Minnesota and Iowa call to mind the notable cyclones that have occurred In the northwest dur ing previous years. The Pioneer Press thus atimmarizos them : In June , 1877 , a largo part of the llttlo town of Hazel Green , Lafayette county , Wis. , was destroyed by a licrco hurri cane , which , in addition to the frightful work usually wrought by such storms in the shape of demolishing buildings , twisting huge rees and carrying people into the air , smoke half a dozen persons with the icy hand of death. Mnnkrtto in Minnesota , Lake Crystal , and the suV- rounding country wore ravaged by a storm cyclonic in nature on Saturday , June 5,1835. A number of bouses wore unroofed at Mankato. and crops were considerable destroyed. No lives were lost. On the 10th and loth of June , 1881 , hurricanes swept through Fulrbuult , Blue Karlh and Nicollct counties , Minn. , and Polk and Audubon counties , Iowa , kil ling or maiming between twenty and thirty people , leveling crops , destroying buildings , etc. This was a prelude to tlm nyjiuorjujjlo cyclone of J ' .y ] * wllc ! ! ' iii'm tlio great part of' New t Ulm , Brown county , Minnesota , in ruins. Throe hundred buildings were torn to atoms , thirteen persons killedand a score of others injured , some fatally. The same terrible storm passed through Ron- villo and Nicolletcounties , Minnesota. Twelve persons wore killed and many others Injured at West Newton and Well ington , and several fatalities occurred at other points in the track of the storm , while all through the devastated section numerous financial losses were Inllicti'd , enormous in the aggregate ) . A delega tion of citizens of New Ulm came to St Paul and laid the distressing state of af fairs before Governor Pillsbury. who at once took measures for the relief of the alllielcd community , where 500 people had been inadd homeless by the calamity. St. Paul and other cities of the state re sponded cheerfully and promptly to the call for help. run GUiNXiit , STOKU. The next event in the scries of cyclonic horrors , and more calamitous than any of its predecessors , was tlie partial de struction of Grinnell , Iowa , amlMalcorn , nine miles distant , Juno 18 , 1883. At Grinnull the list of mortality embraced forty-one names , and at Malcorn nine were killed. About 100 men were wounded more or less severely in the two towns , several of the number dying within a few days. In both places some of the lincst residences wore completely shattered and the fragments blown away , and several public edifices were likewise uninhabited , the principal ones being those of the Iowa Congregational college - logo , valued at $100,000. The aggregate value of the dwelling houses obliterated by this tornado was placed at § 2"iO.OOO. Appeals to public charity were immed iately made on behalf of the victims of the disaster , and generous contributions poured in from Chicago and many other cities of the northwest. This closed the second of notable storms for 1883. In 1883 there were numerous cyclones in the northwest , the first big one being at Racine , May 8 , in which nine lives were lost , fifteen fatally injured and ninety slightly hurt. The houses were mainly small ones , belonging to the laboring class , and the loss approximated $100,000. The same storm passed through the coun ties of Sangamon , Dewitt and JorsoyIll. , killing a score of people and injuring _ . . ' ' . . . . . " , vl.n. . , , ; .iimii"i & iiiiy omers , tiiiu. anmmiuuug a xurgo number of frame buildings. The last serious cyclone in the northwest previous to the Rochester disaster was on July 21 , which passed through Dodge and Olm- stead counties and westward into Dako ta. The number of lives lost was ton and a largo number wore seriously injured. The losses to crops wore heavy. Near Owatonna a Chicago & Northwestern passenger train was blown from the track and twenty persons were injured. THE HOCHKSTEK CYCI.ONU. The most terrific cyclone that ever oc curred in Minnesota visited Rochester early in the evening of Aug. 23 , 1883. The pntlro northern part of the city was laid in ruins , twenty-six people killed out right andoighty others badly injured. The storm was terrific , carrying everything before it. After leaving Rochester it swept onward to the west through Dodge county , carrying death 'and destruction in Us path. The loss in property from the effects of the storm was about ? 300.- 000. On Tuesday afternoon , Sept. 0,183. , a severe wind storm § wept ficfoss Wash ington county in a northeasterly direc tion , devastating the country and par tially destroying the village of Marino Mills. But one person was killed nml less than a halt n dozen seriously inujrod. The storm was cyclonic in some places , and extended over a strip of territory about eight miles wide. Yellow Mcdicino county suffered from a severe rtorm on Friday , Juno 13 , 1885. The wind was a straight blow , not of n cyclonic nature , and was accompanied by a heavy fall of lain and hail. One person was killed , nine injured , and property to the amount of if 120,000 destroyed. UNCLE ROBERT GIBSON. Probably the Oldest Man in America Dies in Amlralu County , BlUsouri. Kansas City Times , April 13th : He was born m North Carolina. December 25th , 17CI5. Here ho grow to manhood without the advantages of wealth or moro than a rudimentary education. At this period , however , schools were scarce. Ho lived hero until about the ago of 55 years , married his first wife when about 80 years old. By her ho had sixteen chil dren , nine of whom arc now living at pa triarchal ages. Ho was mustered into service for the war of 1813 , but was too old for compulsory service and hence did not remain. In 18T > 1 ho married his bee- end wife , boinjr then 05 years of ago. His descendants number nearly 400 and include the fourth generation. Undo Robert always followed the occupation of a farmer , lioing a regular hand in the field until 108 years of ago. Since that time ho has lived with his children. About this time ho was riding horseback and his horse ran against the limb of a tree throwing him and dislocating his shoulder. Ho cliowcd tobacco but did not smoke and was a moderate user of liquor. During the last ton years of his life ho was totally blind , anu his hearing was somewhat impaired , Ho , however , walked around with the aid of his cane , ami within a year walked nearly half a mile to visit a neighbor , For some sixty jeans ho was a member of the Christian church , and. has always lived an honest and himistno'us life. His memory , for one of his ii.jo , was wonderful indued , and his descriptions ot early colonial times were very interesting. The record of old people who "have lived since antodoluvittu times shows tlmt out two persons have exceeded this ago of 120 years , one of these being the paturiarch Jacob and the other a Hungarian peasant who died at the ago of 185 years. Politically Mr. Gibson was a democrat and had voted for every president smoo Washington. Ho will bo buried in the cemetery at at College Mound , near his homo in And ruin county.

A Town of $50OOOO Improvements. tf ho Connty Scat of Holt County. O'NEiu. , Nebraska , April 14th. [ Cor respondence of the BEE. ] The flourish ing county seat of Holt county is situated on the F. E. & M. V. 11.11. , two hundred miles west of the Missouri river , In the celebrated valley of the famous Elkhorn. This valley , beautiful and picturesque , comprises the most fertile agricultural country in the northern part of the state. The geographies of a few years ago , known to adults , traced this valley on their colored pages as n barren sand des ert , but as the old adage says , "Tho proof of the pudding Is In the eating thereof. " This country in raising cereals excels most others and droughts arc now un known to this cllmnto , The early explor er found this section the feeding ( ground of Immense herds of buffalo , but the sportsman and hide hunter have entirely extinguished this monarch of the plains. The tame animal , however , suc ceeded the wild and instead of the buffalo , the domesticated cow and horse , with their numerous progeny roam over the "desert" rich with grasses and bring wealth to the fow. The railroad built into this country during the years of 1880 and 1831 gave the land seeker a chance to como and see for him self whether or not this was the arid which gave evidence that those non-sup posed agricultural plains was a fertile country. The plow was used to turn the prairie and after once harvestings croi > the true nature of the soil was revealed , ami it was attested that the soil of the Elkhorn valley was In fertility superior to that of the cast. The productiveness 01 the soil is now unquestionable for agricultural purposos. Good water , entirely free from alkaline taint , can here bo obtained at from ten to thirty foot be low the surface. The rain fall during the past few years has greatly increased , and now the amount of moisture precipi tated is sufficient for all purposes. HOLT COUNTY , from whence wo write , is in every par ticular ubovo the average of these in the state for agriculture and grazing. Land which a few years ago was considered too poor to bo eiven away is now , throughout the county , valued at from ten to thirty dollars per aero , and as im provements arc gradually added will in crease within a few ycars.to forty dollars per aero. The educational advantages here are excellent. In 1875 but llvo school districts were in Holt county. Prom that time till 1884 over two hundred were established and the number in creasing as docs thot population , The census of 18SO gave this county 3,287 pco- plo and in 1885 the number had increased to 10,000 and at the present tune reliable authorities place the number at over 20- 000. The homesteads which have boon taken in Holt county are rapid ! } ' coming into title possession of the settlers as is substantiated by the 120,000 , acres which was deeded by the government during the year 1885. THE riUNCIPAL , TOWN. O'Neill is the county seat of Holt county and is n model young city for the west. With its elegant and costly build ings , it has the appearance , somewhat , of an eastern city or metropolis. Al though the town is but live years old , counting its age from the time the rail road reached it , its building improve ments exceed in yaluo $500,000. A court house , built of brick , has been erected at a cost of ? 10,000 , and a school house , of the same material , elegant in appear ance , cost $8,000 moro. The First National bank building cost $18,000 , and the building of the Holt county bank $8,000. The capital of the above bank- lug Ifeafijlfcua'fl5lW ttfld ifl About filQQ.- 000 , and both are strong and reliable. O'NEILL WAS FIIIST SETTLED in the year 1871 by a colony from the Now England states , and many of the colony mo.nbers are now prominent per sonages of the town , among whom arc Hon. Patrick Fahy , Neil Ureurjan , J. J. McCafferty and others , The latter gen tlemen are lopdrately engaged in the hardware business and both doing an extensive - tensive business. All the business men of O'Neill ' arc enterprising and energetic , ami the prosperous town which they have built up show their work. The largo , well stocked , general merchandise firms , including those of T. N. J. Hynos and Mann & Hooker , arc models of neatness. THE LEGAL ritOTESSION is ably represented by Senator Kincjiiti Cleveland , Meals &Co. , Jijulffe Golden and M. F. Harringtg.iv , The two latter firms are also d&utors in real estate and lon.n agents. Judge Golden has an extensive - tensive set of abstract books of Holt county , from which wo got our statistics of Holt county land. O'Noil's popula tion at present is about 1,200. Its im provements are the most costly of any west of Fremont in Nebraska. The Evans House is a largo three story hotel , and first class and ono of the many Hand some buildings which the town contains. The Holt county creamery Is Another enterprise which the town contains. A contract has boon lot for the building of A LAUQE FLOUUINO MILL , and it is thought that two mills will bo ereeteii during the coming summer. The press is well represented by tln'eo pa pers , the Tribune , Frontier and People. The editor of the former paper , J. M. McDougal , is a man of rare ability as an editor. His paper now has a circulation greater than any paper in northern Ne braska. O'Noifl will make a FCHMANENT I'OINT. The Milwaukee railroad will shortly construct a line from Niobrara to this place which will help the town's future prospects. With a through railroad and n fuvorublo prospect of another line and with the class of business men of which O'Noil is composed , there is certainly no doubt in the eyes of a candid observer buttliat this place will make onu of the first towns in the stato. A , FIELD AND TABU. Inoculation for Swine Plague , Brooders'Gazette : Dr. W. H. Rose , of the department of Agriculture , Washington , D. C , , has just completed an extended toxir through the Missouri Vulloy states looking affer contagious discuses of farm animals. Ho has saourcd from the infected regions in Kansas and Nebraska much valuable in formation , particularly regarding swine PI guo , and has forwarded to Washing- t a considerable material for use in the investigations being made there to determine moro definitely the cause and natuo of this disease. Ho stopped over atSpringfiold on his way back to Washington , to consult with Col , Mills , secretary of the Illinois department of Agriculture , regarding the health and condition of farm animals iu this stato. But Illinois could not , at this time , furnish anything of especial interest in the way of cattle or swine disease Experiments recently made by the state authorities in Nebraska , scorn to dispiovo the Pasteur theory of inocula tion as u preventive of swine plague. Hut Dr. Rose does not consider those ex- norimcnts conclusive. It is still an open question whether the disease known as swine plague in EuroM is the samp us that whioa appears iuNobraska and Kan sas. It is p6s9iblo , also , that the so-called swine plague in our eastoVn states may differ bomowluU from tu.at of tlio wast. So long as well ccluontotVnion , having at command oVo/y facility tlut science Can supply for the study of these mala dies , are unable to master them wo are little disposed to rely on the advertised "sure rcmcd6s" ! and guesses of vho many who claim to knov * all about the so-called hog cholorn. IU causes , and its euros. A man who knows , little or nothing of physiology and chemistry , or of study with the microscope , may travel the country displaying samples in alcohol of worms" oilier parasite1 ? supposed to cause or result from swine plague , nnd by fliich display lodd many to tlunk him possessed of tlio great secret that is to save millions of dollars to the swiuo breeders of Amorjca. But is it rcnsona * bio to suuposo that such a man lias anything - thing now or anything that lias escaped the Keen search of the well-trained scientist ? , . There ia no doubt that swine plague here , as well na in Kuropb , is highly con tagious. It is cngily givou to healthy an imals by inoculation ; but how to culti vate the virus . o as to have it of just the proper strength to communicate the dis ease iu ix light form only , yet enough to prevent its recurrence without fatal re sults , has not been discovered. In view of the woll-ostabll.slicd fact that swine plague is contagious , and that it coos through the country in no other way titan by tlio multiplication nnd spread of disease germs , it is to bo regretted tlmt men of prominence , as swine breeders , should speak lightly of clangor from the traflic in hogs that nave dictl of disease , In tlio recently published proceedings of the National Swine Breeders' association there is n impelin winch attempt is made to show that the hauling of dead or uis- ir""i" ! > 6ruitu'n ! oy rail , ncctf cause no alarm. If generally road and believed , such teachings would do greater injury to the hog raising industry than nil the good things said in tlio many other excellent - collent paiiers published by the associa tion could over repair The department of agriculture and the bureau ot animal industry at Washing ton are doing good service for the Amer ican fanner and live stock breeder , and I believe it a duty to give them tlio moral support of our cqnlideiieti in their work , rather than to criticise and fault every notion taken. Equinoctial Farrowing. The Hog , April 7 : Wo have boon sur prised nt so many breeders nnd farmers having pigs farrowed at tlio time for equi noctial storms. Wo never yet have had a litter of pigs farrowed during tlio last half of March. When breeding sows wo invariably have reference to tins matter. The rule does not always apply , but gen erally there is brittle weather from tlio 18th to the 27th of March. Then why have pigs come at this period when a dit- fcrenl ( late will nnswfir as well ? Many hog raisers during a lifetime experience never think of this. And it is only an other evidence that they do not carefully study their business. Farmers need to look moro to details. During the equi noctial season just passed some sections have been visited by storms of prcat se verity. Nearly every section has been visited by rain , snow or sudden changes in tempo'rnturo. Wo speak of this matter now so tltat our readers may have it im pressed upon tlicir liiinds and observe it in tlio future.J J ' Get in the Seeds and Plants , Early. These who Contemplate sottins out vines should do1 so early , or us soon us the condition of tlio ground permits. Strawberries are very partial to n cool season and delight jn plenty of moisture , and for that reason no time should bo lost in transplanting the runners. Although many persons prefer to wait until tlio young plants have made some growth of leaf in the spring , yet the best results have been obtained on sandy soils when the plants are placed in position before the crowns have started. The young vines of other fy-uits may bo treated in the same manner , espepiallyin those sections where the summer ia usually dry and but a small proportion of rain is secured. In nfc .wc1 3 UlPf0 tlio middle of the day 1)0 n'mTthS lor tha will ) very warm , Q plants can bo put out the better they will endure the heat of the sun and a dry soil. Seeds of tomatoes , egg plants , water- molqns.cantiiloupoB and other plants that are liable to bo injured , may DC planted in soil placed in empty egg shells , and when the proper time arrives may bo placed in trieir positions without being disturbed from the shells , as they will break the shells as they grow larger. Tliis method is nn easy and excellent ono for securing a lew plants for Jan early supply. I'eas. kale , radish and lettuce endurq slight frosts , anjl the Seeds may bo placed in the ground as early as preferred , though long periods of wet weather may cause uo'ffio of them to rot. Parsley , beets. caTrots nnd parsnips are hardy , and the coed slow in germinating. They cannot bo put in too soon after the ground is ready , as the grass will destroy tlio young' plants if it begins to occupy tlio ground before the plants can become firmly established. As soon as they can bo discerned iu the rows the ground should bo thoroughly cleaned of all weeds and grass , oven if it must bo done by hand , but after that is done the hoe will easily protect them. Do not attempt to got such plants as squash , cucumbers , pumpkin , Lima beans or string beans in before being satisfied that there will be do further danger from frosts. But the seeds should bo planted before the seeds beeom.odry , as u favor able start is very important. Where itls intended to place such crops the seed bed should bo caiofully prepared now , and tlio woods nnd young grass will bo easily destroyed by working over the soil again before planting the uood. The ground for early crops should be worked deeply , and then made as fine as harrow or rake can bo used for that purpose. No ma nure except such as has boon thoroughly rotted should bo used , as frcsii imuuiro may contain the seeds of weeds. Take advantage of the spring rains and en deavor to forward the plants as far as possible before summer. HctiHonnlilo Hints nud Do not compel the sheep to forage ex clusively for their food. Even when the the grass is plentiful a liberal moss of oats when they como up at night will greatly add tothqii ; thrift and condition. Hot-bods are to bo started six weeks before the plants oanbo safely sot in the open ground. ThoBo ncod close atten tion in airing. ThoYsuii's ' heat in a closed bed will destroy thOvorop in a low hours , . Cows should bo milked with regularity. If this work is postponed beyond the reg ular time the cows will not yield the usual quanty and will become dry very rapidly. , \ A few grapevines- planted along the borders ot the wnlks and trained to meet overhead will not only provide shade but yield a crop of fruit as well. Th.o vines oan therefore bo made useful and orna mental , i Soils containing largo proportion of sand are best for garden purposes , but the sub-soil shquld bo of clay if the fer tility is to bo retained , Drainage , however - over , is important In securing good crops from the garden. Hives should not bo placed directly on the grountt , as it will rot the bottom boards and harbor ants , but the earth may bo banked up even with the entrance , so that spiders , toads and li/.ards cannot find a hiding place underneath , Rye may be pastured with advantage at this season , and makes excellent green food until grass is ready. Unless trampled on too much no injury will bo done to the rye by pasturing upon it , and a crop of grain may bo secured later in the season , At this season , when the stock has young grass , plenty of salt should bo allowed. Very young and tender grass will somotihics cause bowul disease , especially U the animals have been fed on dry food exclusively' during the winter , nd as salt counteracts the in jurious effects to a certain extent , it should bo within convenient access. The disadvantages of the ordinary system ot setting milk in shallow pans for raislnpr cream are that & long period elapses before tlio eklmiuing is complet ed , too much space is required , and in summer the milk becomes sour before the whole of the cream is raised. Rats usually find a harboring place under n pig-pen if they can do so , and as they will always have plenty to eat they cannot easily bo captured or driven off. By the llboral use of chloride of llmo n tlieir holes , or of caustic potash where they are compelled to walk , they will become como disgusted and leave. A regular system of rotation on the farm will greatly increase the fertility of the soil , and when the practice of turn ing under crops of green manure is made a permanent ono it will greatly Increase the yields of the regular crops and enable the manure made upon the farm to bo used to greater advantage. There are two kinds of strawberries , the btsoxual ( or perfect ) and the pistillate ( or Imperfect ) . The first will produce fruit of itself , whllo the other requires pollen from a variety of perfect plants before the plants can fruit , lu setting out strawberry plants , therefore , a row of the perfect plants should bo placed every third or fourth row , in order that the imperfect plants may bo fertilized. Jl , B t : , Uwirict Attorno \Vcstchestor Co. , N. Y. , office at White Plains , writes Juno 20 , 1835 : "Fivoyoars ago 1 , my two sons and wife were very liable to colds. Wo wofo the heaviest clothing , wrapping ourselves very warm ; but it was colds , coughs and catarrh all the timo. Finally wo commenced wearing Allcocks Pourous Plasters as chest pro tectors. The first year wo got rid of our heavy flannel aa well as all coughs and colds. Wo each were two Plasters on the chest and pit of the stomach for three or four wcoka at a time , then washed the parts with alcohol and put on fresh ones ; they appeared to warm and invigorate the whole body so that wo never took cold. " General Howard's arrival in Cheyenne was signalized by a baud playimr , " 1 Love Jesus. " This is bringing the "Christian soldier" business to tlio verge of sacnlcgo. The combination , proportion , and pro cess in preparing Hood's Sarsaparllla , are peculiar to this medicine , and are un known to others. _ The pigs should bo turned on grass as soon as they are weaned and the grass is ready.
