Railroad by Polk county came up

The Jubilee Singers performed
at the Opera House last Thursday
evening. They sang the old songs
of the plantation and camp-meeting
as they learned them in childhood,
with much feeling and enthusiasm,
and as we thought with much har
mony for that sort of music. We
regret that wc could not distinctly
catch the full sentiment of the
pieces rendered, and whether it was
the fault of the hall or the imperfect
enunciation of the singers we don't
know, but wc know that our enjoy
ment would have been greater had
it been otherwise.
G. W. Shaffer was in the city
Saturday. He recently lost a steer
by "the disease" common to stock
this full. He opened it alter death,
and found the appearances just as
described recently iu the Journal
by Mr. J. II. Reed. Mr. Shaffer
says that the appearances are iden
tical with those produced by the
dry murrain, many cases of which
he has seen iu the cast. He says that
he never heard there of but one
remedy, which was applied only as
a lat resort, and relief or death was
sure to follow quickly. That is,
take a bottle containing one pint of
strong vinegar, put into it a piece of
white chalk about half the size of a
hen's cgr, stir it but once (as oftener
may burst the bottle,) aud pour it
down the animal's throat.
Wc saw it in all of our ex
changes and we thought it was a
pretty good joke, but for the life of
us we couldn't see anything so very,
very funny about it. It began by
saying " A correspondent writing
from Columbus, Nebr., says" and
then -follows a description of a
cyclone at Lone Tree and Clark's
several years since, and a vivid
picture it is of a massive black cloud
extending a whirling finger toward
the earth, aud sweeping with great
fury whatever came before it, and
then of Jennie, a working girl in a
hotel, stepping to the door to see
what was going on when, "as she did
so she was caught from the door
way by the whirling wind and car
ried over the house, turning round
and round in the air as she went
and after approaching the ground on
the other side she again arose aud
was taken by the whirling wind
over the stores and dwellings a dis
tance of three-fourths of a mile, be
ing lowered so that her feet could
touch the ground as mauy as eight
times during the trip. Exhausted,
but in an erect position she was -at
last lowered to the earth as lightly
as a feather would fall, having re
ceived no material injury, though
almost frantic with fright. The
storm proceeded on its' way, leaving
her in sight of the town, aud iu half
an hour she again put iu an appear
auce at the hotel where anxious
friends were bewailing her sudden
aud mysterious departure." These
arc the words of the faithful chroni
cler, and wc had read them "over
and over again," until we could al
most repeat them verbatim, aud the
mental picture was very strongly
imprinted in the memory. We have
kind friends afar off, however, who
do no forget us, and from some of
these we have received copies of
newspapers containing this identi
cal bit of vivid description, marked
for our particular benefit, aud, to add
toall,iu came a man Saturday with a
Michigan paper marked pretty much
in the same way, and the self-same
Jennie flying and whirling through
the air. If this thing accomplishes
no other good, it will at least adver
tise the name of Columbus, Nebr.
Editor Columbus Journal: I see
that C. L. mil, the book-seller, is unduly
exercised in the interest of the dear peo
ple in regard to which text-books they
shall use in the schools, and has publish
ed a communication from the State
Superintendent calling their attention
to the State list of text-books. This Is
not news to the school officers, nor to
the people in general, for this list has
been the legal one for the last ten years,
aud is published on every blank report
sent to school officers. But nine-tenths
of the districts in the State have adopt
ed other than the legal Hit. Xow if this
law was strictly enforced every one of
these districts would have to buy new
books. But this law nerer can nor never
will be enforced from the fact that it is
now impracticable, and arbitrary. It de
tines what the child must study, no
matter what the desire of the parent
may be. Mr. Thompson and .Mr. Hill
both know, and must admit, that iu the
last ten .years many text-books have
been published far superior to many on
the state list, aud this law, if enforced
prevents their adoption no matter what
their merits may be. Iu conclusion 1
will say that eyery one can see that sel
fish motives alone prompt Mr. Hill to
this action, aud this he will not deny,
lie has books to sell and is jealous of
those who can and do sell them cheaper.

MAGOON Died, at Lincoln, on the
morning of Nov. iOth, Dana Magoon,
late of "Watts ville, in this county, iuthe
2Sth year of his age.
Mr. Magoon had been for several years
well known in this county as a younj?
man of eminent worth and promise. His
powers of body and mind were such as
promised an energetic activity of many
years in the fulfilment of those earnest
purposes of Christian benevolence to
which he had dedicated himself. Hut it
has seemed otherwise to the Master of
the Vineyard, who knows butter than
we in which world His people can do
Him most effectual service, and whether
their presence or their memory can ac
complish most in His lower heritage.
Mr. Magoon, who came into the State
with his widowed mother, Mrs. Mehita
ble Magoon, now matron of the Agricul
tural Department of the University, as
the fourth of a laiuily of six, (of whom
Mr. H. C. Magoon aud Mrs. J. R. "West
still reside among us) after having taken
measures for securing his homestead,
engaged for a number of months iu Sun
day school labor in Kanftis, as the agent
of the Am. S. S. Union; and then went
to Oberlin, Ohio, as a student of theolo
gy, expecting, in due time, to enter the
Christian ministry. But his athletic
frame, accustomed to active exercise,
appears to have been unable to bear the
strain of study to which he applied him
self with only too much of the steadfast
earnestness of his character. Besides,
his travels in Kansas seem to have im
bued his frame with so much of the
poison of that insalubrious region, that
although his last illness took the form
of consumption, some of his physicians
were of opinion that it was essentially
a malarial disease.
Mr. Magoon returned here in early
summer, hoping that this health-giving
air would soon restore him. But the
signs of impending dissolution were
only too plainly written on his frame.
Nevertheless we who knew and loved
him hoped against hope, and after he
lert us for his mother's home at Lincoln,
were hardly willing to inquire, until,
sooner than even our fears had indicat
ed, the intelligence came that he was
not among us. He was only confined to
his bed two days, nis mother, seeing
the last hour imminent, asked him if he
feared to go. With a smile of peace he
answered: "Oh, no! I have trusted in
the Lord too long to fear now." And so,
as if sleeping, he passed away. And in
Christ wc know that indeed he "is not
dead, but sieepeth."
From my knowledge of Mr. Dana Ma
goon having been for some time his
pastor 1 should say that the most con
spicuous qualities of his character were
manly modesty, steadfast earnestness,
and singular sweetness of disposition,
all brought under the unwavering ser
vice of Christian faith and love. It is
an honor to Platte county to have num
bered ch a young man among her
citizens, and to have been able to prc
seut him to Christ as a pledge, that,
whatever appearances might be, the
deepest self-dedication to the interests
of his immortal kingdom was to be found
within her borders.
If life be not in length of days,
In silvered locks, and furrowed brow,
But living to the Saviour's praiee.
How few have lived so long as those.
