Lute North recently received a
letter from Wes. Rhone, on the

J. C. Henry had been brought down
from Fremont by the U. S. Marshal,
on the charge of counterfeiting.
This is, of course, not J. C. Henry

son of exactly the same name but of
very bad character, and who has re
sided near and iu Fremont for the
past eight or ten years.

Win. Stevens says that to one of
his animals that was attacked the
other day by dry murrain he gave a
mixture of laudanum one-half
ounce, Perry Davis's pain-killer
one half ounce aud linseed oil one
pint. To a full-grown animal he
would give twice that amount. The
dose should be repeated until the
pain ceases, and a passage of the
bowels is secured. The remedy was
effective iu this instance, and he be
lieves would be iu most cases.

C. E. Morse has begun the erec

Tattersall on the south, and to be
used for a livery. The building is
to be of frame 28xG0 ft., and similar
iu appearance to the Tattersall. It
is just five years to-day since the
Tattersall received its first horse for
feed, and the establishment has been
conducted ever since on first-class
principles. Charley is one of the
cleverest men in the country, aud
we are glad to note this additional
evidence of his prosperity.

"Evidences of Christianity;"
the third lecture ou the above sub
ject will be given in the Presbyte
rian Church on Sabbath evening
next, Jan. 5th, by Rev. R. Christison,
subject, "Is the Bible a Forgery?"
These lectures, while giveu for the
benefit of all, are specially intended
and adapted for the more thinking
portion of the community. Intelli
gent men aud "free thinkers" of all
shades of opinion are particularly
invited to attend, aud give the sub
ject a fair hearing. Mr. C. intends
giving one of these lectures once a
month during winter.
A few days ago John Reagan,who
lives on Shell Creek, turned out one
of his valuable animals, a mare
worth $175, and she came back in a
few hours with a horrible gash in
her hip, from which the blood flow
ed very freely. Mr. Reagan feels
sure from the manner iu which the
wound was made, its shape and
depth aud direction, that it must
have been inflicted with an axe. He
is compelled to believe that some
man, lhroughenmity, to him, has
endeavored to vent his spite, in this
wicked manner, upon his inoffens
ive dumb brute. If this should
prove true, It is a most cowardly,
and fiendish piece of business, and
he who committed it deserves only
the execration of the community in
which he lives. .A man who allows
his passion to thus far run away
with his reason, should beware lest
in an unguarded moment he commit
a more heinous crime. Such men
are dangerous in a community from
the fact that they loye darkness
rather than light, and because they
strike the defenceless, the unguard
ed aud the unsuspecting. For the
sake of human nature iu Platte coun
ty wo could hope it would be prov
ed that this thing happened some
other way, and that wc have uo such
man anion: us.

The Irice of Wheat
Wisneii, Neii., Dec. 27, '7S.
Editor Journal: I notice in
your paper of the 25th, a communi
cation headed "The price of wheat."
I beg leave to make one correction,
aud add a few other statistics for the
farmer to read who is holding back
his wheat expecting better prices in
the near future. Your correspond
ent gives 390,000,000 bushels as the
crop of 1878. The agricultural de
partment at Washington makes it
425,000,000 bushels as the crop of
1S78. Mr. A. C. Thomas of Chicago
gives as the visible supply of wheat
at the present lime 20,000,000 bush
els. Afloat for the United Kingdom
Dec. S, 14.000,000 bushels. Nearly
4,000.000 bushels iu store in New
York. Surely a poor prospect for
much better prices, unless on the
principle that "all signs fail in a dry
time." Respectfully yours,
Why Is It?
St. Edwards, Dec. 27, '7S.
Editor Journal: Can you ex
plain to your readers why the Boone
Cousty Argus, our own county pa
per, continues, week alter week, to
misrepresent the price of wheat at
Columbus? Fanners in this vicini
ty rely upon the Argus for the quo
tations of the wheat market at
Silver Creek and Columbus, which
arc given weekly. For several
weeks past the quotations for both
places iu the Argus have been the
same, 50 to 55 cents. By the last
Journal I 6ee that No. 1 wheat at
Columbus is quoted at 58 cents.
These hard times 3 cents, on the
bushel is too much to lose "through
an error in the quotation of prices.
In reply we can give no other
explanation than the one that usu
ally explains the shortcomings of an
editor, viz., that in the multiplicity
of duties, he forgot to correct the
wheat market. "Bob" should have
sent for an explanation to Argus
Mr. D. Davis lost a very fine grey
horse, one of a team he purchased
last spring from F. Gillett, of Co
lumbus. Mr. Hendiich has lost two
young cattle. Mr. John Elliott has
also lost two young cattle by the
same disease. Mr. Bishop lost a
valuable mare on the 27th tilt.
Mr. James McClain received a
large box the other day from Carlisle,
Pa., aud $11 in monev through Miss
Rebecca Elliott. Mr. McClain is
the man that was so unfortunate as
to lose his propertv lately bv fire.

THE COLUMBUS LIBRARY
To the Public.
For the information of all parties in
terested, and the further developerhent of
the case involved, notice is hereby given,
that an organization has been perfected
for the purpose of establishing a Library
and public Heading Room in this city,
and the success of tliis laudable enterprise
will now materially depend upon the as
sistance and active co-operation of our
Articles of incorporation, including the
Constitution and By-Laws agreed upon in
a public meeting, have been recorded, and
the Executive Committee have since ap
pointed a committee to solicit donations of
money, books, periodicals, or other useful
and essential articles that may assist in
building up and furnishing an institution
which, if initiated and properly sustained,
will prove a credit and of vast benelit to
our city. Over two lnnu'red dollars have
been subscribed,as a start, and as soon as
a sufficient amount shall be paid or
pledged, a room will be obtained, and an
appropriate selection of books and period
icals procured, and said Reading Room
opened to the public. Our citizens may
expect a. call, and they should be ahje to
see at a glance, that this is not a solicita
tion for a subject of charity of doubtful
propriety, but one for the present and
permanent benefit of our young city and
its growing populace. Let five times the
amount named be raised if possible, as it
will assuredly prove to be a valuable in
vestment for the public welfare, and he
who contributes most liberally, will never
have occasion to regret the act.
By a provision of the constitution, the
Reading Room will be under the charge
of a librarian, with suitable regulations,
and will be open at all seasonable hours
to the public, without charge. Any one
paying one dollar into the treasury, and
signing the Constitution, becomes a mem
ber of the Association, and entitled to a
voice and a vote in all its proceedings.
Library tickets will also be issued, and
any member or other person on the pay
ment of one dollar, will be entitled to a
ticket, good for one year, that will allow
said person to draw books for stated peri
ods; the proceeds to go towards the need'
ful expenses, or to augment the library.
The fees for membership and library tick
ets may be taken from any one's subscrip
tion, if desired, or they may be made ad
ditional thereto. While membership is
not essential to secure the prviilegcs of
the library, yet all who are favorably dis
posed, and who do not feel able to make a
larger contribution, are earnestly solicited
to subscribe enough, at least, to entitle
them both to membership and the pur
chase of a library ticket, and those who
have more ample means, we trust, will
feel constrained to give in due proportion,
but let no one's contribution be measured
by his neighbor's purse, property, or free
Now, fellow citizens, this enterprise is
commended to your judgment, and must
rely upon your fostering aid, upon a liber
ality of will and a generosity of purpose
that will cause your hands, in sympathy
with your hearts, to reach your pocket or
check books, and thus enrol your names
as public benefactors. Neither excuses
nor special pleas will fill the bill, for as
citizens whose interests arc involved with
our own, wc need not only your good will
and sympathy, but something tangible and
practical; your names, your influence, and
a portion of your money; and upon your
action will depend the success or failure
of the effort. If we succeed, to you will
all credit be due, and a land-mark of pro
gress will be established in our history;
if we fail from lack of means, upon you
will fall the discredit; but we trust that
your action will be such as to show, that
no delusive phantom of failure will readi
ly disturb your imaginations or thwart
your nobler impulses.
In a commercial or business point cf
view, while holding out inducements to
settlers, Columbus should foster a little
pride in keeping pace with her sister
cities of the state, as our educational sta
tus and our facilities for literary culture
will elicit inquiry, and will be reflected as
it were from the sign boards of our town,
either to repel or attract intelligent immi
gration. We believe that our general
reputation, as well as the moral aud intel
lectual standard of our city, would be ele
vated by a good library and reading-room
in our midst; that a greater love for sci
ence, history, and good social literature
would be acquired, and under judicious
management, that much good, both direct
and reflective, would be produced upon
our entire community thereby.
On behalf of the Executive Committee,
Wm. Burgess, President.

Editor Journal: Every person
seems to be thoroughly settled
down for the winter, and we have
neither accidents, funerals nor wed
dings, tor all which we trust we are
grateful; therefore owing to the
tact, that your humble correspon
dent is not a very imaginative sort
of a person, it is uext to au impos
sibility to find anything to interest
the critical readers of the Jour
nal. We were very forcibly impressed
by reading the article in your last
issue concerning the vast amount of
mischief one mean man is capable of
committing iu the neighborhood iu
which he lives; we thoroughly
realize this fact, but of course no
such persons live iu our neighbor
hood. Mr. Henry Bellamy started last

There is no medicine prescribed
by physicians, or sold by Druggists,
that carries such evidence of its suc
cess and superior virtue as Bos
chee's German Syrup for severe
Coughs, Colds settled on the breast,
Consumption, or any disease of the
Throat and Lungs. A proof of that
fact is that any person nfllicted,
can get a Sample Bottle for 10 cents
and try its f.uperior effect before
buying the regular size at 75 cents.
It has lately been introduced iu this
country from Germany, and its
wonderful cures are astonishing
everyone that uses it. Three doses
will "relieve any case. Try it. Sold
