It seemed impossible for either
Sprerry or Gerhold to receive tho
nomination of Commissioner, but
time will tell whether they have the
disposition or the power to defeat
the nominees of the Democratic con
vention. In the Democratic convention
last Saturday our editorial brother
Henslcy received just five votes in
all the county, aud they were from
Columbus precinct. It is said that
Judge Higgins's powerful aid secur
ed the nomination of Crites.
"Wc have heard it very broadly
asserted that Henslcy was traded
ofl for GerholJ at the convention
last Saturday. As wc hold that it is
tho chief business of an edilcr to
keep lies out of his paper, we don't
say that this is true, but wc believe
it is.
Mr. J. M. Alderson sold last

age and weight.
"Will Gcrhold run indepen

The Ei'a's Boy up a Slump
seems considerably worried con
cerning a Mr. Uriah Heap, "one
bald-headed, town -i-chenier, wily
aud slimy." We don't know any
body of that name, but he must be
"a awful being" to frighten a fat
"big boy" up a stump. Better crawl
down and scratch gravel."

Jacggi & Schnpbach, successors
to A. Henry, lumber dealers, are
doing a heavy business in the lum
ber trade, judging from the amount
of lumber that daily leaves their
yard, which is immediately replaced
b large daily invoices. They are
selling at bed-rock prices for cash.
If you want lumber it will pay you
to trade with them.
S. L. Barrett, who received the
nomination for State Superintend
ent of Schools on the Democraclic
ticket, doesn't purpose loosing any
time or money over the campaign.
He probably thinks that ten thous
and is a pretty considerable major
ity to overcome, and in such an
opinion he would be eminently cor
rect. "Whatever prospect a Demo
cratic nominee may have in Platte
countv, 1.' has but little show in
the Sfatc.
Last Sunday a drove of four
hundred feeding steers driven from
"Wyoming Territory, passed through
Columbus for Iowa, where they
will be fatteucd this winter. These
cattle are owned by Mr. Templcton,
of Jefferson count', Iowa, who pur
chased them in the west for two
cents a pound. "We learn that our
cattle man, Mr. David Anderson
sold to Mr. Templcton a nice lot of
feeders that will average 1200 lbs.
to the steer, at good figures and
purchased from Mr. Tcmplcton's
herd a nice lot of two-year-olds.
Consternation was carried into a
household on 13th street on Monday
by a musk-rat that invaded the
premises and boldly entered the
house, occupied only by the female
members of the family. Possession
was easily gaiued one combined
scream and whisk of skirts, aud his
ratship was in quiet possession of
one apartment of that house, where
he was found by the bold rescuer
who hastily accompauicd the one
lady who had the presence of mind
to run and "call a man," and instant
ly dispatched, releasing from their
self-imprisonment the ladies under
lock and key in au adjoining apart
ment. One little incident shows the
prcdomiuent characteristic of the
mistress of that household. "While
the club that was to deal death to
the marauder was poised for the
blow, the arm was stayed by the
cry, "Oh, don't kill it cm the car
pet!" But that rat chose to play the
role of carpet kuight, aud met his

The "Man up a Tree" in the Era
last week lost his balance and fell
into the mud. Sad, sad, but he
needn't blame farmers for it. Al
though we do nearly all our farming
by proxy, it grieves even us and yet
amuses us, too, to sec the air of su
perior wisdom aud shrewdness
assumed by this Man up a Stump,
and the patronizing pat upon the
shoulder which he administers to
the farmer, while at the same time
he calls him "a slave, his wife a
drudge, and his children mere automatons."
One of our Democratic friends
rather upbraided us last week for
occupying so much of our valuable
space for the benefit of his party.
The only excuse wc have, but it is
a good one, is ihat wc take a lively
interest in the welfare of our neigh
bors. Wc could not bear to sec
them waste their time in holding
twice as many caucuses and conven
tions as were customary and neces
sary, without interfering with a
mild and altogether friendly nega
tive ; but our counsel was not fol
lowed, and hence our preserved
candidate, Hensley, was converted
into pickle, at the suggestion of all
the country precincts.
The Nursery for October is a
delight in every respect, stories,
poetry and pictures. The editor
says to his little readers "Our Oc
tober number will, wo think, find
some eager readers among the chil
dren. The pictures, too, arc well
suited to their tastes. 'The Chow
der Party' is drawn from life. 'How
it Rains' shows two piteous little
faces. The account of 'Turtle
catching' will be found interesting.
'Looking out for Number One' car
ries a good moral against selfishness.
'The Hornet's Nest' by Marian
Douglas is worth the whole year's
subscription." New subscribers for
'79 whose names and money arc scut
the publisher before November next
will receive the last three numbers
of 78 free. $1.G0 a .year, single

last Saturday, A. "W. Crites, Esq.,
was nominated for representative by
a vote of 12 to 5 over W. N. Hensley,
editor of the Columbus Era. R. II.

convention were as follows: II. T.
Spu'iry, W. N. Hensley, J. E.
North, M. Mahcr, E. D. Shcehan
and John Uickly.
The Woman's Christian Tem
perance Union held a meeting at the
Congregational church last Sabbath
evening, which was largely attended
and much interest manifested in the
proceedings. Mrs. C. S. Reed,
president of the Temperance Union
in P'atte county, gave a detailed
and interesting account of the pro
ceedings of the State convention,
which was recently held at Fremont
and which she attended as a dele
gate from this county. Rev. Chris
tison and Rev. Sherman delivered
short aud appropriate remarks on
the occasion, aud Mrs. Sherman
read a very interesting selection.
The president also announced that
the annual meeting of the "Woman's
Christian Temperance Uniou would
be held in the Methodist church
next Saturday at 3 o'clock i m. As
' - - 7 .
the officers and committees for the
year will be elected at this meeting,
it is very desirable that all the mem
bers should be in attendance.
N. Millctt is enthusiastic over
the State Fair. lie has attended a
great many fairs, and he says that
the display of machinery he never
saw equalled. The fine cattle were
excellent, Daniels of Sarpy county
taking the best prizes. The Aldcr
ney and Jersey cows and hulls were
as good as he ever saw. Sheep,
both fiue-woolcd aud coarse, were
good, and the hogs were splendid.
A novel species attracted considera
ble attention the Red Jersey, a pig
the color of a new-burnt brick. Mr.
Millctt is very enthusiastic in praise
of Nebraska fruit, characterizing it
as the handsomest and best he ever
saw, anywhere. Language, he says,
can not describe it as it appeared to
him; apples, a vast variety, and
pears, grapes and plums. He saw
nml admired the stove that has been
invented for burning hay, straw, etc.,
aud thinks it a success. He de
scribes it as something like the
common stove except that there are
two places for the reception of tubes
about seven inches in diameter
pushed in from the back part, open
at the front end and closed by a cap
at the rear; to the inside of this cap
is attached a strong spring, which,
constantly pushing on the hay
stuffed into the tube, continually
feeds the flame at the other end.
These tubes contain about three
pounds each of hay, and dozens of
them can be quickly filled and kept
for use. Mr. M. denounces in very
strong terms the numerous gamb
ling devices that were allowed
within the inclosure, as the only
objectionable feature of the Fair,
and a disgrace to the management
wmeu snoulu uever be repeated. J

friends in this place.
Charles A., returned from his
trip to the Cedar valley on Monday.
He reports the threshers doing their
duty, aud the small grain crop will
amply repay the husbandmen for
their hard labor. He returned by
the Loup and Platte valleys and
says tho corn crop in these valleys
is very good and will prove a boon
to our stock raisers.
--Herman Gross arrived home

Burr Robbins' Great American and
German Allied Shows Coming to Co
lumbus, Monday, Oct. 7th.
"We insert the following very fa
vorable notice, from the Kcosauque
Vindicator, of the abovo named
show, which is to exhibit in Colum
bus, October 7th :
Everyone will join with us in saying
it is the best show ever in Kcosauque.
The street procession at 10 a. in. rivals
k grandeur and brilliancy any show
wo have had for the past ten years.
The procession of nearly a mile long
with waving Hags and uniqtio banners,
splendid trappings, gold eiieruteil
chariots, radiantly colored dens, silver
mounted harness, hundreds of plumed
horses, knights in armor, ladies richly
costumed in queenly robes, automation
gymnasts, minstrels aud other resplen
dent sights.
It is a square institution from the top
of the ceiitcrpole down to the ticket
wagon. 3Ir. Robbing has been in the
business a lifetime, and no man can
point to a dishonorable act that he has
committed. He has made money and
Imcsted it. His circus and menagerie
Is his pride. He would not have a poor
performance at any pi ice. lie would
not employ a dishonest man nbotit his
concern at all. He will not have a
.drunkard about him. His party is com
posed of as line gentlemen as can be
found about any business hotic in Iowa.
Hjs circus might pitch its tent in a
nun's front' yard or on formal school
grounds, or the public park, and not a
word be said that would offend any one,
and when it went away not a cent's
worth of damage would be done. His
company i like a well drilled
army, that obeys orders. Wc believe
that Purr Itobbins' show is the
best on the road.
We have not seen the establishment
noticed by the press, or heard it spoken
of by person's who have witnessed its
exhibitions except in terms of commen
dation. Unquestionably it is in every
way worthy of patronage.
