PROSPECTS FOB THE
BV C. S. HARRISON,
o, May Flower Colony, York, Nebraska.
Thousands in the East would like to
hftVe western homes. They bare heard of
, he returns which reward the laborer.and
L ease with which farming can be car-
Lon by machinery; “but then," say
Z ‘there is the scarcity of timber.”
uved thirty years io fire Western
gtates, we are prepared toeay jometbing
PD r timber prospects.
Timber with us grows with wonderful
rapidity. Thirty years ago people- made
the same objection to going to Illinois
which they now make to going to Ne
. hut notwithstanding the wood
b&s been burned, and the millions of
railroad ties which have been furnished,
there is more timber in Illinois to-day
•han ever. All through Nebraska timber
Luting is an enthusiasm. Every farmer
Stock companies plant large

.' Lber. Millions of frees are annual-
! AjVout from the forestB > and hundreds
0 f nurseries are propagating on a grand
scale One firm raise over twenty mil
lots of conifer® alone, and cannot sup
p>v the demand. One Patent Office Re
port estimates that 150,000 acres are annu
ally planted to timber. Last year one
it rd more trees were planted than two
Tti.rsag°- - ,
Tree culture has proved a -success. It
i SC T uncommon thing to see groves of
evergreens in the heart of a once bleak
prairie. Conifers succeed much better in
ibe loam of the West, than in their native
Michigan or ew York - Arthur Bryant,
0 f Prmceton, Illinois, brother of the poet,
h&; a great variety. Some of his ever
greens are forty feet high, and live feet in
ircumference, though only twenty years
0 j Mr. Scofield, of Elgin, has Edro
ptan larches .fifteen years oli, forty feet
hieo, anJ a foot in diameter — capable of
m-jiiag two railroad ties and two fence
posts, to the tree. A few months ago we
visited Mr. Edwards, one of the tree
planters of the West, and it seemed as
though the wand of a magician had pass
ed over that prairie land- What a trans
formation bad been produced in a score of
years ' Walks wind through bis grounds,
embowered with perennial green. Here
are firs which you would think half a
century old; there, pines large enough
for house timbers ; and the Norway spruce
serving as stable for fowls and cattle.
Many cattle raisers are planting ever
greens for the protection of their stock
and the shelter is so complete that a few
dollars save the expense of a barn. The
Norway spruce, by its foliage, with limbs
overlapping* is especially adapted for
stock shelter; and we have seen a hedge
o\ \Vs tree, six years planted, and fonr
feels part in the row, so interlaced that
tie snow could hardly blow through it.
In lowa and Nebraska, fine artificial
forests diversify the once unbroken prai
ries ; and we have seen soft maples so
thrifty, that after six years, ten acres
would supply a family for ever- Black
walnut, eighteen years old has yielded at
the rate of forty cords of wood per acre.
Cottonwoods, fifteen years old, are found
chat will yield a cord to the tree. In one
instance a row of Lombardy poplar, ten
rods long, and twenty years old, yielded
twenty cords of wood-two cords to the
rod. White willows, set out as a hedge,
soon yielded ample returns of fuel-
There is an alarming prospect for our
Northern forests. Having visited the
centres nf our lumber trade, we find that
seventeen years will complete the destruc
tion of our pineries. ’Soon after our pine
Is gone, our hard wood forests (which
now supply our manufactories, our agri
cultural enterprises and car works,) will
a'3T be destroyed.
Thirty years will, inevitably, see the
East denuded of timber, while groves,
large enough tor building and manufac
turing purposes, will adorn the West. If
properly tended, trees will grow to a good
size n thirty years. There is a great dif
ference between a natural and an artificial
ferest. Before u«, as we write, is a sec
tion of Scotch pine, thirteen years old,
and th r:eea inches through, and the tree
Was thirty-five feet high. Go into artifi
cial forests, and you will find that trees
' hen make a diameter of inch a year, and
a height of two f^et; and we have known
w hue pines to grow even three and font
feel a year. The soft woods sometimes

We must plant them both East and
West. The ease with which our Western
soil can be cultivated, its freedom from
stumps and stones, and itsnheapness.gire
every advantage to the Western planter.
Bat it is said there are beds of coal at
the East; so there are in the West. Illi
nois, lowa and Nebraska appear to be well
stored with coal.
Bat too much reliance should not be
Placed on coal. It does not grow, and
consequently it mast ultimately become
exhausted. England supposed she bad a
supply for a tbouasand years ; but last
s fluaner a coal panic so severely affected
the industries of that , country that the
shock was felt almost all over the world.
The only trouble with the fuel question
in Nebraska is for the next few years.
We can raise wood in that time. There
is a grove of cottonwood in Seward coun
ty, which, when only four years old,show
ed trees four inches through and fifteen
feet high; and if there had been ten acres
°f it. it would, from that age, have yield
ed a family a perpetual supply. Cotton
wood from the seed often springs up in
corn fields, and grows as high as the corn,
(six feet,) the same year. “Well, for the
next five or ten years what will you do ?’»
The herd law obviates the. necessity of
fencing, yet the people are planting
fences, which cannot blow down and do
notrot; and.harsh as it may sound to
Eastern ears, corn makes an excellent fuel.
It Is ascertained that a pound of corn is
worth as much, as a pound of coal; and
there is generally such a plethora of this
commodity, that it can be had for fuel
much cheaper than many ah; Eastern
household can be supplied with coil.- The
question of pressed fuel, from weeds and
straw, la agitated-; and in
western lowa, compressedhay Is already
used. Seedling forest trees are furnished
at from $2 to |lO per thousand.'
In the United States Land Office, at
Lincoln, more than 25,000 homesteaders
and pre emptors, have filed claims to
prairies, and, nearly 3,000 others have
bought them of the Burlington & Missou
ri River Railroad, on ten years* credit, six
per cent, interest; and on contracts since
1872, no part of the principal payable, till
the beginning of the fifth year.

Aside from woodland tbeuuim proved

so that the total farm' acreage amounted
tb 2,073.7811 the cash value of which,•' In
”1870 was $80,243,186, an average of $14.-

ually.coel one-tenth uf their present value
though a majority of them have been pur
chased within ten years. The value of
land in England has increased during the.
last fifty years, less than twenty-nine per
cent. (28.88 in exact figures): within.one
fifth of that time, the lands of Nebraska
have advanced one thousand per cent.
But more than two-thirds of the land
in Nebraska farm (68.8 per cent) is still
unimproved. Therefore, land-values have <
not risen one-third as much as they will
FARM LANDS HOW PAR IMPROVED.
lo all the States in the Union, except
two, more than thirty per cent, of the
land in farms was unimproved in 1870.
Those two State were New York and Illi
nois. The percentage of farm land un
improved in the former was 29*6; in the
latter 25.3 Illinois is, then, the Agricul
tural Banner State. Her farms are more
pervasively cultivated —no corner un
touched, because they are like eggs—good
throughout; and because she was settled
earlier than any other genuine prairie
State. But, as lowa and Nebraska are
likewise prairie Stalest counterparts of
Illinois, when they are as old, their farms
will show as small a percentage of land
unimproved. Indeed, railroads will hur
ry on their development faster than they
have accelerated the growth ot Illinois.
But, as more than one-third of the area
of Massachusetts has remained notified
after two centuries and a half of settle
ment, it is likely so to remain till dooms
day. The truth is, the percentage there
untilled was greater in 1870 than It was in
1830, while the valuation of form lands
was about seven millions less, $6,823,-
HO! FOB THE NORTH POLK.
Capt. Parry, having-sailed north Mil he
reached a field of solid ice,' landed on ft
with sleds and a force of trained dogs.
He drove on due north twenty miles aday
for three weeks; but, on taking an ob
servation, was thunderstruck at finding
that he was, after all, south of the point
from which he had started. The reason
was, tnat while he was driving one way
the ice field was drifting another.
So fares it with many an Ohio fanner.
Work as hard as he will, his farm is drift
ing down.. On the other hand, the Ne
braskan is on an ice-field drifting the
same way that he is driving. Hta gains
are not merely his crops, but the growth
in land-value, always greatest in new
countries—a growth no frost, no drouth,
no deluge can stop—which keeps on, like
interest while he is asleep, and insures
him all that Capt. Parry lacked for reach,
lug the goal of his ambition.
Up to New Year’s, 1878, the claims filed
in Lincoln, the Nebraska capital, by
homesteaders were 12,804; by preemplors
13,447 ; purchasers of railroad land along
the line of the Burlington and Missouri
River Railroad were 2,825. Their farms
amounted to 294,625 acres, bought on ten
years’ credit, six per cent. Interest, and
on contracts made since 1872, nmbing of
the principal is payable till the end of
tour years. i
Coaldn’i Sign Away HU Liberty.
A Missouri planter, having allowed bis
swine to range in the woods, at one time
missed several of them. Suspicion at
once rested upon a certain neighbor, and
the planter resolved to watch the actions
of his pork-loving neighbor. One day,
while tiding through the woods, the plan
ter came upon the man in the act of lift*
ing a fine yound porker to his saddle in
order to take it home.
“Now,” said the planter, “I have caught
jou at last.”
“Yes, massa, you’s ketched me sure dis
“Well, I shall have to send you to pris
“Oh, no, massa, you ain’t gwine to send
me to prison: Just you think of my poor
wife and children,” and the poor man
put in such an earnest plea for his wife
and children that the planter’s heart re*
“Well,” said the planter, *TII tell you
what I will do. You pay me for one-half
the number of swine yon have killed and.
sign a paper not to kill any merer and I
will let'you go.” ’ ■ , - *>
“No,” said the lover of his neighbor’s
pork, M nb massa, I will pay for all I have
stolen, but as for signing away my liber -
ties, I can't do-it.”
—Duty is the first step- to greatness—,

billows of life. If ;we fail in our duty,
we bid farewell to the land of promises
to the haven of hope ;• man's honorable
occupation is gone. i
