"Jack-the-Kisser" got after a big,

Keep your gates closed. A citizen In
Columbus, Neb., ran against an open
gate one dark night recently and hurt
himself, and has brought suit against
the city for damages to the extent of
six thousand dollars. Residents who
arc so careless as to leave their gates
swinging over the sldewalksafterdark
should be held responsible for such ac
cidents, and not the city.
A Journal reporter asked an old dem
ocratic farmer and pioneer citizen ol
Cass county, who was in the city the
other day, w ho he was for for presi
dent, when he rcplier": "1 am for the
democratic nominee, whoever that may
be." That was the reply of a relia
ble democrat, and Just such an one as
should come the lips of every true dem
oc rat when asked a similar queston.
An exchange tells of a young man
who had occasion to use the 'phone

the young man exclaimed: "Look out,

hard to explain, and It Is to be Imped
that "central" forgave him, for central

It would do most of us a good deal of

"How Interesting a character t

an old bachelor friend of the Journal
the other day, who had perhaps been
Jilted something less than a dozen

whole he appears at Ids best. His

Hurlington train No. 12 jumped the
track at the entrance to the Ashland

o'clock, killing Michael J. Graybill,
engineer on freight train No. 30, who
was engaged in oiling his engine. The
engine and mall car passed over the

seriously injured. The resistance made
by the engine of No. 110 perhaps saved

Leap Year Ball.
The leap year ball given by the
young ladies of l'lattsmouth on Fri
day night last Is pronounced by all
who attended as a grand success in
every particular. This was guaran
teed from the start, when it was gen
erally known w ho were at the head of
the affair. Everything was carried
out in a most magnificent manner, the
hall was most elegantly and tastefully
decorated for the occasion, and the
music furnished by the I'armele Thea
tre Orchestra was superbly grand.
The program was carried out to the
letter, much to the credit of the floor
managers. In fact all thecommittces
deserve credit fortheir untiring efforts
in so successfully performing their
parts. All hail to the young of riatts
inouth, and may they live (if they
don't find some charming young man
to please them) to enjoy many more

TO HAVE A CANNING FACTORY
A Very Enthusiastic Meeting of Citizens at
the Court House.
W. L. Langdon, of Council HlulTs,
arrived In l'lattsmouth on Friday last
to see what our people would do in the
way of establlsbinga firstclass canning
factory in this city, and in com
pany with Mayor Frank J. Morgan, he
visited most of tho business men and
others interested in such a move.
fter receiving a most favorable ex
pression for all It was decided to take
immediate steps in that direction,
consequently it was understood that a
meeting of those interested would be
held at the court house that evening;
So far as numbers were concerned
for such very short notice, it was quite
respectable. Mayor Morgan was made
chairman, and A. W. Atwood acted as
secretary. Mr. Langdon was intro
duced to the audience by the chairman,
who submitted tils proposition, which
was about as follows: If tho citizens
would furnish him a'slte upon which
to erect a canning factory, with a
sidetrack to same, and also furnish
him 1,500 acres ofsweet corn this year
ho would erect upon such a Bite one
two story brick building, 80x100 feet,
a two story frame building, 50x100 feet;
a corn shed, 00x150 feet, and a brick
toiler room, 10x24 feet. The factory
will bo equipped with the latest im
proved (new) machinery, with 'a
capacity of 80,000 cans perday,and will
furnish employment to 250 persons
during the canning season. The build
ings and machinery will cost abouc
75,000. One bushel ;ofcd will plant
five acres of ground, and the yield will
be about four tons to the acre, for
which he will pay $5 per ton. The
reason he desires to furnish the seed,
Is simply because It Is the kind gener
ally used for canning purposes.
This corn, as we understand it, is to
be contracted for, or guaranteed by
the citizens they to enter into a con
tract with farmers near the city to
furnish it. The proposition all through
seemed to be so fair that the following
committee was appointed to secure an
option on several sites, and report
their action at another meeting to be
called by Mayor Morgan: 11. 15. Wind
ham, A. W. White. C. C. Parmele,

that could possibly be established in

Always anxious to help cur city and

making up a list of Leap Year bar-

men, green and tender. Second class
to contain names of old bachelors, safe
and reliable but slightly wilted. Third
class second hand goods such as
widowers, divorcees and old remnants
from last Leap Year eight years ago.
Any one wishing to enter the list may
send their names to the Journal and

That was a cool bluff sprung bv the
attorneys of George L. Farley in the
libel case now pending in tho district
court, wherein Sheriff McUrldo is
plaintiff and Mr. Furley is defendant.
Mr. Farley camo Into court and Hied n
motion asking that .Sheriff Mcllrlde be
suspended from performing his duties
in serving papers for the ensuing
March term of court, and requested
that all of the sheriff's business for
that term be transacted by the coroner.
unaouoteaiy mis was Intended as a
Joke. Surely the intelligent attor
neys who are lined up for the defense
had no Idea that Judye Jessen would
consldcrsueh a motion for a minute.
The Judge very promptly set down on
the motion without argument bv the
attorneys. If your evidence Is as clear
that the sheriff has been robbing the
county In making erroneous charges,
as you claimed it to be during the
campaign don't try to side step, Mr.
Farley, for tho voters of tho county
might draw the conclusion that after
all your oxpasure was simply for politi

In hand, Mr. Farley, if you really as

What's in a Name, Anyhow?
The following from the Louisville
Courier, edited by our friend Lee May-
held, contains some things to which
we fail lo find any serious objection.
During the civil war we answered to
the appellation of "major," simply be
cause we served in the u,"th O. V. 1. in
Uncapacity ordrum major. This title
remained with us up to about sixteen
or seventeen years ago, when In com
pany with fifty or sixty newspaper
men of the Third Missouri congression
al district, then represented by Gov
ernor Dockery, met In St. Joseph to
organize an association. It is unneces
sary to remark that some of the lioys
got pretty well "organl.ed"durlrig the
day. After dinner we proceeded to

fore the railroad was built to that

were christened "colonel" by being
dumped out of a skl!T Into the lake and
nearly drowned. .So you perceive, Hro.
May Held, there was some reason for
calling us major, some caw.o for Mm an-
peiiatlon of colonel, but none on earth
for "Uncle Hilly," and here we wish to
draw the line, because our oldest broth
