TRIP TO THE BERMUDAS , Eookj Islands Thrown Up in the At lantic Ocean. LAND OF MANY BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS. An Oinntin Iln-slncss Mn. " TuIU of of Kouk , of Or-niiIcrs ! Sixty Foot High nntl Otlicr Wcntlir . O. H. Onrtls , president of the Omnhfi rub- bcr company , and Mrs. Curtis have Just re turned from n trip to the IJermuda Islands They first visited Boston , Philadelphia and JCew YorK , nnd nfter spandlng two months in the Bermudas they returned , visiting "Washington , D. C. , nnd the eastern cities. Mr. Curtis , in speaking of his trip , ro- rnaikcd : " 1 have found that in the east the feeling In business circle * was not any bet ter , If as good , as In thn wost. Money is roa- t onably easy In Now York , but prices are very close , nnd every ono is coroplalnlne of fimall profits , duo to the cutting in prices , un til nothing is left. "It seemed to bo the general opinion out elde of the importing bouses , which , of course , nro foreign In tbeir sympathies , that as soon as the McKinley bill gets to working and people can see Its results that they will rcali/o that it is a good thing , and that both aborlng men nnd consumers will bo bone- "I noticed that New York city Is rapidly developing in the way of buildings. In the upiKJr part of tbo island especially n large number of high and substantial blocks are being built. In spite of their much talked of elevated roads , which carry u half million people daily , thov nre saaly in need of better transportation facilities. The question of constructing underground rnaas was being discussed. "A steamer for Bermuda loaves New York every week , the trip consuming sixty hours. JJuring our trip from Now York the weather < wus perfect , and , until wo reached the gulf stream , calm. In crossing the gulf stream it is liable to bo rough , but after that the bal- nncc of the voyngo was very pleasant and Ylie temperature gradually grew warmer. "We arrived about 0 o'clock nttho entrance of the narrow passage. The whole collection of islands is a scries of coral reefs Vaised out of the water. These reefs extend tinder the water for a distance of twenty inlles this side of the islands and at a depth pf two to ton feet below the surface , making It entirely unnavigablo for ships except in JDHO narrow passage. This gives peculiar so- jcuritv to thu islands as a naval station and the English government appreciates the fact nnd pieventstho Improvement of any other channel. The channel is marked by buoys nnd a pilot is always required to take a ship In , and even the ships do not attempt to go in nfter dark. The channel is protected by sub- tnarine mines and by forts on tne islands. The English government constantly keeps. Irom two to three thousand soldiers on the islands. At present the grenadier guards uro stationed there , w hero they were sent for Jtisurbordmation. They nro a fine looking body of men. "They have the largest floating dry dock yards in thn world , which wcro towed over S.he water from England and which can take "up the largest man-of-war in tne navy. There are complete facilities for repairingships nud it is the coaling station for the English * navv. "It may be of interest to know that Eng land has passed n law preventing the holding of property by any alien ' As regards the inhabited Islands there are four situated something in the shape of a fish hook and joined together at the ends bv bridges , so ono can drive a distance of about txvouty-flvo miles , which is the length of the llsbbook. The width of the islands varies from a low rods to three miles at the widest point nnd as a rule tne shore line is rocky , being honeycombed by the action of the "water. "Tho formation of the islands is entirely of coral roofs of a white color , soft as chalk. In quarrying it for millding purposes it is sawed out in blocks with n crosscut saw. These blocks after exposure to the air bocotna harder , and all of the buildings on the islands with the exception of two nro built from this material , roofs as well as walls. They are nil whitewashed , so that ono would think from first glance that there had been a snow Btorm. All the water used for domestic pur poses ii caught from ttio rainfall and each dwelling is required by law to have n cistern of a certain cnpacitx and to keep it nnd the roofs pcrlectly clean. Tneso white houses , scattered among the green cedars , the tree of , the islands , make a pretty appearance. X. ' 'Tho islands nro cut up byroads which . made the convicts sent out Vjve by by .tSagland years ago and are cut out through the soft rocks , the same ns our streets in Omaha have been cut in the past , only the banks at the side still stan3 , iii some places to a height of seventy feet. The sides of the roads hnvo n weird appearance in many places owing to the irregular position ot the ptrutn of the rocks which slant in every direction. Most of the roads are lined by "a bodge of oleander trees which crow to a height of fifty or sixty feet and when they are in blossom the sight is beautiful. "Flowers of all kinds abound The caster lily is the typical ono and is raised in fields of sometimes many acres in extent , prac tically supplying the world with bulbs. The blossom * are sent nt castor time to the large cities of this country and England. "They also have some of the finest roses to be seen any place. Geraniums attain an im- inonso growth. When trained to a trellis they grow ns high ns eight or ten feet nnd when tolled w'th ' showy blossoms of a proportionate tionate size the sight is a beautiful ono. The principal industry is the raising of onions , potatoes , tomatoes nnd the easier lily , the importance of each being in the order namod. These productions are roost all exported to New York. A peculiar thing about tnn business is that the inhabi tants export all their home grown potatoes to Now York where they brins a big price and in return get Now York potatoes for their own cotfumption. Bananas nro raised to quite an extent , nnd of peed quality for homo uso. uso."Tho soil cultivated is almost all artificially made and thu amount therefore is limited. "Hamilton is the leading Unvu nnd the point where the shins land. There are sev eral reasonably good stores of various kinds. Bt. George is the next most important town , and was the original settlement , being over 340 years old. The total population of tbo Islands Is about 15,000 of which two-thirds are of the nosro descent. These colored people form an unusually bright and educated class , having been freed ' vaoro thnn llfty years ago , since which time they have had excellent school privilege * . "A largo soaroo of Income to tbo residents li from the pleasure seekers from the United Status , who visit there during the winter , It being quite n resort for Now S'orkers Some thing over n million n year is spent by Eng land in paying its army there. "During the winter season the town of Hamilton is very livelv. In the way of nmusomcnts , regular weekly dances are given by the leading hotels , besides private parties , afternoon teas , receptions , theatricals , etc. These receptions nro liable to bo full dross affairs , nnd the people there nro very showy tony stylish. r "Tho islands nro upon the whole well Svortti n visit , containing so much to interest the visitor from the states.

[ Special to Tan DEE. ] A uow prairie country Is never moro delightful than in ttio months ot May and June. The prairie * of green are pally painted with Innumerable flowers , exhibiting the motley confusion of colors of a Turkey carpet , The rivers have coa = od their wild fury , the beautiful spots alon ? tbo great streams present tbo appearance of mingled grove and garden , and the trees are often covered with clambering graoo vines In blossom , which perfume trio air. THE I CB correspondent , tolling advantage of this glorious season , has just returned from an extended trip in Boyd county , sit uated north of Holt , west of ICnox and form ing tbo northern boundary of Nebraska east of Koya Paha county to the Missouri river. The Niobrara river forms its southern boundary and the ran o line between ranges eight and nlno , tbo northwestern portion of Knox and the Missouri river being its east ern boun dry. Leaving Niobrara , crossing the combina tion brldeo built nt on expense of 3,000 , the government road to Port IlandaU and west ern agencies is loft , and the beautiful valley of the Ponca is taken. Indians who huvo scoured their lands in severally , thrown aside the weapons of war and tnkon quite aptly to the hoe are seen busily at work planting corn , and on ono farm flve Indians were putting in their best licks planting with corn planters. Passing up Pouca river the now farms that are being opened up are truly surprising. It must be remembered that outside of the few Indian forms and the ones hold by the white relatives , this new country has been open to sauatter settlement since lust August onlj' . The strip lying north of the Niobrara river has slnco 1S * > , when ox- Senntor Saunders succeeded in getting the annexation bill through congress , straighten ing the state's northern boundary , boon in the Indian title and was not to bo a part of the stnto until that title became extinct. The last Indian treaty Drought that about , and then the Poncas had six months in which to make their selections Before President Harrison risen proclaimed It onen , which was dcltiyca until last October. The plats of the survey have not all reached the land office yet , four townships only having been declared ready for Cling. All along the route the industrious "now settler" is seen with his wife and big boys breaking , corn planting and pulverizing the new-turned sod. At Lynch , nine miles above Barker's , we find a good location for n town. It lies very pretty to the south , n beautiful creek , known throughout the reservation under the prohibition title of Whisky creeK , flows from the north toward Port Randall and is fed by innumerable springs. The coun try surrounding these vallovs is beautiful , while the only passaeo way for the proposol extension of the Omaha line to Fort Randall is by this valley. The route from bero is taken northward over the prairies. A vast plateau stands out before us , with the earth of black , the house of sod or new lumber dotted in every direc tion. Wo soon enter the Bohemian , Swede and Gorman settlements. Here , as before , the old and young of both sexes are at work. Pencing is going on , tree planting has not been forgotten , and the thrift } * wife has her garden and chickens at the door. The de licious water at nearly every house along the route is drawn from wells only from twenty- five to thirty-five f&oc in doptb. Prom Lynch for about ten miles tbo route has been north of Ponca river , which pasbes quite in the center from east to west. Cross ing this creek , it Is found to be broken and divided quite naturally from the west per tion. A great hill on each side of this crossing , with n dry creek running north and south and entering tba Ponca valley , makes this portion of the road the only unfa vorable one along tbo routo. After gaining the opposite hilltop a new prairie town meets tbo eye. It is Spencer. This town bad last week n grocery store and a saloon. This week it has two saloons , a feed store and a build ing for a printing olllce. It is owned by Hon. H. E. Bonesteel , J. A. Cooley , Henry Storm of Niobrara and Hon. Sanford Parker and Barrett Scott of O'Neill and EdVhiting , n ranchman on the Niobrara river , being a sort of compromise town for county seat honors between Niobrara and O'Neill parties. While yet a city In embryo , a bank , a large general merchandise store and a railroad are prom ised if Governor Thayer and the people will vote it the seat of government. The non resident money lenders , speculators and poli ticians of both parties and the alliance seem to have split hairs on this town of forty acres. It stands high up and can bo seen for miles. Five miles distant , with a beautiful coun try surrounding , stands the pioneer town of the reservation. It is Mankato. It was laid out by .1. W. Fairbanks of Knox county last summer. Ho went to work with private means and erected buildings , first securing a notel man to put in a building there. He has about him a good class of clti/ens. The enterprise and good citizenship of his people are sbown In the fact that at this town the only school witbin the reservation is being kept up by these people. It has been tholr foundation stone , so to speak. A newspaper was staitcd last winter , but the building containing tbo omco belonged to a party in the rival town of Butte City and ono night the whole concern was taken bj a mob. Editor Blake put in his best efforts for his town , and the rival two miles above turned in and put a stop to those messages of truth , using the captured weapon for their own boom. As no law , except the law of common duty , exists in this unorganized country , the editor awaits tha arrival of or ganization. The town has excellent drain age , is on the survey of the Sioux City North A-cstorn , and commands a good trade from the county and has many warm frionds. The frontier town thus fur is Butte City. It has more buildings than Man unto , with two saloons running in pUre frontier style , and the second newspaper promises to spread its wings next week. The dny of my visit found it filled with people who bad coino to see tbo Indians , the races and base ball. The saloons particularly hud n lively time of it , and it re-minded me much of thoearly days of Long Pine and Valentine , except that the cowboy's pistol was not to bo beard. A blt- teinoss exists between tbo two towns of tbo west , and it is said "on the quiet" that Spencer - cor hopes to keep this 11 ro burning until after the county seat elections with the hope of capturing the prize , which is surely the pol itician's pride. And Spencer Is not short on ability of this kind. Tbo country west and northwest from these towns is beautiful rolling prairie and well settled with the thrifty now settlor. Toward the Koya Pana river aud the Nto- brara on the south tno country Is moro broken. But the fractional townships lying between the Niobrara and the Keya Paha are garden spots and an old settled country. This portion was virtually witbin Holt county and not a part of the Indian country. It has been settled for a dozen years and the fanners are well-to-do. The Tienken Broth ers , extorslvo ranchmen , have tbo distinction of shipping several car loads of their fat cat tle direct to Germany this season. They started their ranch th ro in ISTIi. It will bo the only portion of the county that will bo taxable for several years outside of personal proiierty. Returning , I came along tbo old govern ment trail along tbo Niobrara valley that was used in the early ' 50's for exploring expedi tions. The old wngon road goes to the mouth of the Koya Paha and joins tbo Port Randall road on In course to the westeni forts , tbo Black Hills. Montana and the Pacific. Ono can see tbo washoa-out road of two genera tions , along t-ido its yoanger brother , now not so generally followed as when the Ponca watched with jealous eye the intrusion of his white brother into his beautiful interior , beld sacred for feeding grounds for the loug-slnco departed buffalo , and elk , and antelope ; or mot in battle array bis red brother of tbo north , known to him and nil other tribes as the "Cut-Throat Sioux , " his common enemy. The country lying along the Niobrara is mostly settled by white men having Indian families , which ts divided up in great ranches for the lamlly , from flve hundred to two thousand acroa.

To tbo Edi tor of Tun BCE : On yesterday the general synod of the Evangelical Lutheran churcb of the United States decided to locate at Omaha n theological seminary. Mr. Augustus ICouutzo generously offered to donate land valued at $100XX ( ) and give in cash 50,000 to wards the enterprise. Also to pay ono-half of the expenses for securinc a like amount from the church at largo. This magnificent offer was accepted by tbo synod and in a short time over j il.UOO was subscribed by the individual members of the synod. Never in my life did I see such a manifes tation of tho" presence of the Holy Spirit. Mr. Kountzo was present and was deeply af fected with the manner In which his gener ous offer was received. Thus , you see , an other important enterprise has boon located in Omaha. The Jocauou of the buildings is to be in Kountzo place ) , The session of taa ecneral synod thus far has been ouo of 'tbo ' roost harmonious and pleasant in its 'history.
