Some one is talking of starting
a greenback paper in Columbus.
"When we come to think of it, and
see the immense wealth that news
paper men are laying by, we don't
know but it would be advisable to
start about two more newspapers in
the city : that would make only four
papers and five job offices.
On Monday last, we are inform
ed, that Jno. Grady assaulted Jack
Regan shooting at him four times
with u revolver, hitting him at last

beating him. Mr. Regan is not ser

red over some cattle. This Is ru
mor, and we give it for what it is
Mr. J. "W. Witchey had splendid
samples of peaches and apples at the
fair last week, grown in the valley
south of the Loup. Any one see
ing this large and well developed
fruit would hardly deny the fact
that Nebraska can produce as good,
if not better fruit, than any other
state in the Union, size, flavor &c,
Billy Marbla and his troupe
played three evenings last week at
the Opera Hall in this city, and al
though Mr. Marble and players had
acted here so recently, they never

houses and did their acting well.
Personally we heard only " Rip
Van Winkle," which to us, was a
rare good treat.
Tke Fair.
The Fair, commeucing "Wednes
day last and continuing three days,
was very "well attended during the
afternoons, especially, of the last
two days. The display of stock,
except horses, was poor, there being
no sheep, only three hogs and one
bull the latter A. Heiurich's. "We
have had no opportunity to look
over the list of entries and can not
speak particularly of anything ex
cept as we happen to know. The
articles on exhibition in Floral Hall
were good, and worthy of premi
ums, but there was not enough of
them. John Tanuahill's accustomed
display of fruit and seeds was con
spicuous by Its absence this year,
but the vacancy was partly filled by
Judge Higgins's samples and thoso
of V. Kuramer, J. "W. "Witchey, J.
Ernst and M. Weaver, the first of
whom had seedling peaches ; Trans
cendent crab apples; Concord
grapes; several varieties of plums,
including the California cluster,
wild goo6e, cherry and Miner, be
sides a grape vine showing a growth
of 14 feet and 9 inches this season ;
thrifty looking blackberry and rasp
berry bushes and pie plant. Mr.
Witchey had some splendid speci
mens of apples, Nebraska seedlings,
large and finely flavored. Mr. Hum
mer also had specimens of apples
from his orchard in this city, as also
M. Weaver some splendid apples
and Mr. Ern6t some grapes.
We heard considerable grumbling
(mostly by thoso who contributed
nothing to the success of the Fair),
againet the meagreness of the ex
hibition, but if there had been noth
ing there except this very excellent
fruit, the sight of it and the knowl
edge that it was grown in Platte
county would have amply repaid
auy true Nebraskan. M. Whitmoyer
had a nice specimen of Egyptian
sweet corn and Geo. Truman one of
sod corn; II. P. Coolidge had a
stove and a neat card frame with
specimens of hardware: Mrs. Calli
6on exhibited some beautiful boquets
and hair work ; Mrs. A.N. Burgess,
also, flue specimens of the latter and
there were quite a number of oilier
things, exhibited by persons whose
names wo don't know.
The chief interest, however, with
tho older folks, seemed to be in the
races, and the little folks, in the
swing, which went "around the
world" a great many times, and also
iu Mr. Hudson's candies, fruits, &c. ;
the youths of a larger growth en
grossed each other's attention so
exclusively that even the racing was
but secondary to the contest of love
that raged supreme within, aud lit
the eye or sHffused the cheek of
gentle maid or swarthy swain.
The trotting race on the second
day was between Gross Bros. "Bos
ton Davis," George Scott's "Nigger
Boy" aud Charley Morse's "Bessie
Turner." All did well and are very
clever horses, but "Dave" we be
lieve is generally conceded to be
a little ahead of anything in this
ueck of woods, and, under the skill
ful handling of Billy Keller, if he
don't prove an overmatch for some
horses of a larger reputation we are
not good at guessing. "Scotty"
drove his own horse, aud the way
he handled him showed that he was
no -'slouch." S. O. Raymond pulled
the ribbons over "Bessie," but was
compelled to bring up the rear.
"Shep" is an excellent driver, but
we judge that "Bessie" had little, if
any, training during the summer.
In the trotting race of the last day
G. W. Dorsey's horse, Saturn ; a
brown gelding, Tim Aleck, and
Brown Mack, all of Fremont, and
"Willow Lake," owned by T. W.
Boies of Seward were entered.
Brown Mack was drawn on account
of throwing a shoe. Saturn is a
fine-looking horse, five years old,
and won the race iu three straight
heats. Willow Lake came second,
her driver handling her very nicely,
although fcho had had but little
training, and added greatly to the
interest of the race by making Sat
urn show good points. Tim Aleck
came third.
In the running race Fuller's mare
Flora took first money; Charley
Morse's Cheyenne Bill, second, and
a Seward horse, third.
In the double team race immedi
ately afterwards, Morse's team Bes
sie aud Brancho, won the race in
the first heat, making 3 :2i.
In the last race, Stevens's Gray
Eigle, under Billy Keller, won
against Irish Kit, under Jno. Huber.
We hope to be able next week to
publish a list of awards.
The Marble Theatre Troupe

nights in this city on Saturday night

Chicago, 910, 1878.
My Dear Friend: I intended to have
written you yesterday In regard to your
dear brother's death, but was too busy
and nervous to do so.
After writing you H9 I did Saturday,
you will thiuk it very strange that you
were not notified of what will seem to
you to be his severe illness.
He was at the store Wednesday morn
ing last and complained of not feeling
well, said he would go out and get some
medicines and would be back after din
ner. NotreturningI calledonhim. lie
informed me that he bad taken a hard
cold, but thought he would be all right
in the morning. In the evening he was
no better, and the doctor was sent for. I
called on him Thursday morning, and
found him suffering from sore throat.
I immediately went to the doctor's of
fice and was informed by the doctor that
he had an attack of the quinsy; said it
was nothing serious. I called on I B.
again in the afternoon; said he was get
ting along. I again called on him Fri
day morning and found him feeling so
well that he thought he would be up to
the store in the afternoon, but I advised
him to keep quiet until Monday. Friday
afternoon, he went over to the doctor's
office to settle his bill, saying to him
that "he was feeling much better, and
would finish his purchases with us Sat
urday and start for home Sunday night.
I called on him again Saturday morn
ing; he was not feeling quite so well;
and Saturday afternoon and found him
about the same as in the morning. You
remember his acquaintance, Mr. II ill
man, who is in our Shawl Stock, for
merly from Canada? I requested blm
to stay with him Saturday night, which
he did. When I called on him Satur
day afternoon he requested me to write
to you as I did, and can assure jou I
wrote as I felt.
I reside at Riverside, somo twelve
miles from the city. On Sunday morn
ing there was a change, in fact he had a
poor night Saturday night. Sunday af
ternoon they called a council of physi
cians and decided that symptoms were
very serious, and immediately after they
sent a telegram to Mrs. P. B., also sent
for me. 1 arrived at 0 o'clock in the
evening, and found the change very
great. During Sunday, Mr. Ilantioii,
(one ofthefirm)Mr. Ilillraan, also Mr.
Farris, was with him. At G o'clock the
doctors thought that if he was no worse
for forty-eight hours, he would recover,
lie was sitting up in the chair only
about one hour before he died. The
doctor then expressed as his opinion
that he would have a better night than
the night before. At 10 o'clock, twenty
minutes before his death, the doctor, Mr.
Farris, the nurse and myself being pres
ent, we noticed a sudden change, a very
weak pulse with cold extremities. "We
gave him brandy to revive him, but with
no effect he sinking very rapidly, and
at twenty minutes past ten his breath
ing stopped and he left this world with
out a struggle dicing very easy.
While in his chair he suffered very
r'uch in breathing, and just before 10
o'clock we placed him on the bed aud
he was very easy from that time out.
He was conscious until he was placed
on the bed only about 45 minutes be
fore his death. The first attack was
quinsv, then asthma, and diptheria set
in Saturday morning. We had, during
the week, very close, sultry weather,
which aggravated his asthma troubles.
1 think, with more favorable weather,
it would have been different.
ComraksioncrN' Proceeding;.
Tuursday, September 12th, 78.
Full Board present.
A special meeting of the Board of
County Commissioners was held for the
purpose of letting the printing of the
Delinquent Tax List.
Bid of M. K. Turner & Co., was read,
asking 20 ccuts for each description,
other than town lots, and 10 cents for
each description of town lots.
On motion the bid was rejected, and
the clerk instructed to notify M. K.
Turner & Co. to that effect.
On motion, the Board adjourned until
to-morrow morning, at 9 o'elock for the
purpose of receiving further bids for
said Tax List.
Friday, September 13th, '78.
Full Board present.
Bid of M. K. Turner & Co. for print
ing Delinquent Tax List was read, ask
iug 19 and 99 hundredths cents for
each description, other than town lots,
and 9 and 99 hundredths cents for each
description of town lot.
Bid of Uensly & Burgess was read,
asking 20 cents for each description
other than town lots, and 10 cents for
each description ot town lots. On mo
tion the printing was given to Uenslcy
& Burgess.
On motion the Board adjourned.
John Staukfer,
County Clerk.
We clip the above from the last
Era. It is correct in every particu
lar, we believe, except that the bid
of Hensley & Burgess was not stated
in figures, but was (to be exact in
words), " for the rates allowed by
law." Tho law says the treasurer
shall add to each description of land
so advertised, the sum of twenty
cents, other than town lots, and for
each town lot the sum of ten cent,
to defray the expenses of advertis
ing, which amount shall be paid by
tho county treasurer at the expira
tion of the sale, upon affidavit of the
publisher; provided, the county
commissioner shall let the printing
of the delinquent tax-list to the low
est and best bidder at a price not
exceeding the rates aforesaid."
Now the Era's bid was " the rates
allowed by law, " which is indefi
nite. We were asked to bid per
description. "The rates allowed by
law "are anywhere irom 20 aud 10
down to nothing, and the only way
to force it into definitencss would
be to assume the word " lowest " or
" highest " before the word " rates"
which the commissioners bad no
right to do. The Era doubtless
meant it to be the highest rates al
lowed by law and the commission
ers evidently accepted it with that
understanding. All that we have to
say here is that there is probably not
another intelligent man in the
county who would decide the ques
tion in that way, because there is
not another man that studied that
kind of arithmetic.
We didn't have space last week
to mention the fact that the Demo
cracy of this county, through-their
central committee, have called two
delegate conventions; first aud
foremost, the sovereign democrats
were to meet at their several "poll
ing places" last Saturday at 7 p. ra.,
for the purpose of appointing dele
gates to the county convention,
which is to convene next Saturday
to select delegates to the State con
vention. By the way, are thoso to
be substitutes for the ones selected
a month or so ago by the committee
or is the-committe beginning its
labors anew on a solid basis?
However that may be, it puzzles
the ordinary Democratic mind
to see the necessity for '.he num
erous rank aud filein sixteen pre
cincts to meet a second time at 7
o'clock p. m., on the 22d day of Sep
tember, "at the polling places in the
several products," for the purpose
of appointing another set of dele
gates to another county convention,
to nominate representative, commis
sioner, &c. In their uativo simpli
city they asked why one convention
couldn't do all the business. It is
noticablc that to the first convention
" a full representation is requested "
aud to the second " a full represen
tation is earnestly requested," the
italics are ours to call particular at
tention to the difference. Perhaps
the earnestness superadded to the
last call is superinduced by the su
perabundant probability that no
possible loaves and fishes will be
distributed from the state table, but
may be handed out from the county
commissary stores. Who can fath
om the depths of the policy of out
Democratic brethren, or measure
the length and width of their pur
pose 1

An Astonishing; Fuct
A large proportion of American
people are to-day dying fro.n the
effects of Dyspepsia or disorderd
liver. The result of these diseases
upon the masses of intelligent and
valuable people is most alarming
making lire actually a burden instead
of a pleasant existence of enjoyment
and usefulness as it ought to be.
There is no good reason for this, if
you will only throw aside prejudice
and skepticism, take the advice of
Druggists and your friends, try one
bottle of Green's August Flower.
Your speedy relief is certain. Mil
lions of bottles of this medicine have
been given away to try its virtues,
with satisfactory results in every
case. You can buy a sample bottle
for 10 cents to try." Three doses will
relieve the worst case. Positively
sold by all Druggists on the West
ern continent.
