Quite a number of our young
men on Thursday last realized that
New Year's night was excessively
cold. Not a few were around on
Thursday with their ears in a sling.
Last Thursday, a team of horses
attached to a wagon, became fright

ran away, which is nothing unusual.
Damages light, which was fortunate.

Young, had a hearing before James
Russell, Esq., on the 3d and wa9
acquitted by the justice, and dis

Bcclier & Reynolds, General
agents for more than 200.000 acres of

W. B. Dale and A. M. Jennings
wore absent last week at Albion
and Neligh. At the former place
they organized a lodge of Knights of
Honor. They report a cold ride
against the wind Tho sand hills
are drifted full of snow. On the
road Jennings complained of a cold
stomach, and Dale wanted to pre
scribe for him, but Jenniugs wa9
afraid to trust him.
The Cornet Band ordered
through their Secretary, Monday
morniug, of Lyons & Healey, Chi
cago, a full set of new instruments.
These instruments will cost the
baud something over three hundred
dollars. They have about two hun
dred In their treasury, and we hope
that their next entertainment will
be very liberally patronized so that
they cau clear themselves of the in
debtedness thus iucurred.
Dr. A. G. Morcy was in the city
last week. Ho had just rcturucd
from Madison county, N. Y., his
former place of residence, where he
h3d been visiting. He says that
after living in the west the hills in
that vicinity look a great deal high
er, and the valleys not near so broad
as they did of old. Every thing ap
pears strange to him, and it seems
as if he had at one time seen the
country, but ho can scarcely realize
that he ever lived there.
The B. & M. railroad lands of
Madison county came into market
the first of the present month. If
you want first choice of these un
cullcd lands call on Becher & Rey
nolds, general agents at Columbus.
On last Thursday eveniug ten

A. E. Touzslin, Land commis
sioner, .of Lincoln, arrived at this
city Saturday to make further ar
rangements with Bccher & Reynolds,
general agents of the B. & M. R. R.
lands, to accommodate the large
number of immigrants that are ex
pected here in the spring.
As is usual at this season of the
year, many are afUictcd with re
forms. Some of our young men
resolved to quit swearing on New
Year's morning, and, to aid them in
their resolve, bargained iu solemn
compact that he who broke the
same should pay the other parlies
to the contract fifty cents; they
were all ahead two or three dollars
by the close of the day.
- Quite a number of the friends
of Miss Fannie II. O'Callahau met
by invitation on Monday evening
at the residence of her brother-in-law,
J. C. Morrissey. The cveuing
passed very pleasantly devoted lo
conversation, music and games. De
licious refreshments weie served by
tho young lady as hostess, and when
the hour for the "good-nights" had
arrived, all agreed that a more en
joyable social event had not come
within the range of their experience.
Owing to tho absence of Will
B. Dale, G. D. K. of II.. tho officers
of Monitor Lodge were not installed
last Saturday as announced in out
last issue. We are now authorized
to say that the installation of the of
ficers of Monitor Lodge, Knights of
Honor, and of Mystic Council, Roy
al Arcanum, will positively take
place at IlicK. of II. hall ou Friday
evening, Jan. 10th. If Mr. Dale is
not present the services of a Deputy
G. D. will be secured. The services
will be public to those holding tick

On New Year's night, at the res
idence of Thos. Potts, in this city,
Mr. Joseph Roberts was united by
marriage to Miss Mary Golden, for
merly the wife of Charles Edgcrtou
of Omaha, from whom she was
granted a divorce. Justice McAl
lister tied the matrimonial knot, and
we hope the couple thus joined may
never have cause to wish it severed,
and that iu their pathway through
life they may be able to avoid the
conjugal briars and thorns that must,
without forbearance and a proper
curbing of the spirit that is always
ready with promptings that are
wrong, boset the way.
A farmer near the city has a
shepherd dog that has acquired quite
a reputation in the neighborhood,
for his good sense, sound discretion
and executive ability. His last
noteworthy feat occurred on Sat
urday. A light wagon was run
into by a passing team, breaking a
wheel and frightening the horse to
that he ran away. After running
about a quarter of a mile, he came
into the dog's neighborhood. The
dog, who seems to know instinct
ively when anything of that kind is
wrong, seeing the horse pass, im
mediately took after him, headed
him off, turned him, made him go
towards a barn, and held him there
until his master came aud secured
What a time for local items ! It
has becu rather too cool for anything
unusual'to happen. Outside of re
marks'about frost-nipped fingers or
cars, all talk has beeu confined to
the state of the weather. The Police
Judge who wails iu his dormitory
for local police items has passed the
state of chronic expectancy and has
been seen on the street with a smile
so warm that the coldest breath that
zephyred ruthlessly by could not
freeze, but then, some there are.who
say his girl sent him a nice Christ
mas present. No police news indi
cates that all the badness is frozen
out of everybody. Then there has
net eveu been a dog fight. A runa
way team or two only tends to show
that "in the poetry of motion there
is lile." The only thing belligeraut
in the city during the pat week was
Pat, the white dog at the Clother
House, worrying a hog, during the
sunny hours last Monday, and he
did this through a mistake; he
thought the hog was a cat, aud he
went at it to work it into sausage.
The Great West.
From David Anderson (whose
return from Denver we mentioned
last week) we get the following
items : He rode from Cheyenne to
Golden, distance 120 miles, on
Christmas day on an engine, in the
midst of a big snow storm that last
ed 2-i hours. Two engines had been
ditched, and several coaches wreck
ed on the C. C. R. R., a few days
previous ; snow lay 6 inches deep in
Colorado near the Foot Hills,and the
Denver people were enjoying de
lightful 6leighing. Mr. A. says that
Denver and Golden presented a
perfect wonder to him, in their pro
gress and growth, as he lived at
both places before a respectable
dwelling had been erected. The
Leadville mines are attracting uni
versal attention. This rich mining
district lies 125 miles southwest of
Denver, and is located almost in the
heart of the great Rockies. Three
railroads are already projected to
Leadville, and the town and dis
trict, though less than 8 months old,
contains a solid population of 10,000
people. Last spring, shoemakers,
tailors, barbers, and poor laboring
men left Denver to prospect that
region, and within a fortnight were
ranked among the wealthy "nabobs"
of southern Colorado. Two thous
and teams are engaged freighting
merchandise, provisions, &c, into
these new mines, and return ladcued
with rich ores for the extensive
smelting works near Denver and
other points throughout the valley.
Mr. A. visited his old friend cap
tain Reed and family in Golden. Ho
also met II. P. Handy in Denver, he
whom Madame umorRhad reported
killed on the C. C. a year or two
ago ; he also met our old townsman,
Jo. Baker and his son Platte Baker
who is now running an engine on
the passenger train between Chey
enne and Golden, and Platte is
doing well and likes his new home
and new position. Mr. A. remarks
that all his old friends of '59 and 'CO,
who remained in Colorado, without
an exception have become wealthy.
It may not be amiss, now that "the
harvest is past and the Summer is
ended," to review in general outline
what has taken place iu our city and
county during the year gone by. It
would be an arduous task to give
the improvements in detail.
The improvements in the city
have, in the main, been of a substan
tial nature, while those in the county
have been extensive and durable.
Traveling in any direction from the
city, persons meet with good, sub
stantial aud neat farm houses and
out-buildings, where but a few years
ago was wild prairie or but sod
The most encouraging feature
about this fact.is that while eastern
people have been complaining sorely
of hard times, our people have been
cheerful aud hoperul, and notwith
standing the low rates paid for farm
products, have had enough to eat
and to wear, if not a very great sur
plus. This is not the least of the benefits
enjoyed by the people of this locali
ty. While in quite a large portion
of our common country the ravages
of a fell disease has prayed upon the
people, destroying thousands or
lives and paralyzing the industries
of that locality, we have been healthy
and happy. While near us and all
around us, crime.-!, startling in their
nature, terrible in their character,
and shocking iu the recital have ta
ken place, our community has qui
etly obeyed the law in all its forms.
No strikes nor tidal waves of
Communism have visited us, nor
have our business men met with dis
aster. The retrospective view is
cheering and the prospective, we
think, is equally hopeful.
Hon. Cyrus Allen.
This gentleman, late representa
tive of Butler county in the State
legislature, died at his home at Sutn
mit,on Christmas evening of inflam
mation of the bowels. The David
City Republican ays:
"Tuesday night, the 24th ult., he
was suddenly seized with cramps iu
his stomach and bowels, and suffer
ed considerable during the night.
Early on Christmas day Dr. Peebles,
of this city, visited him, and suc
ceeded in alleviating his nain con
siderably before he lelt. About
dark, however, the pain returned,
and alter intense suffering, death
came to his relief about 11 o'clock,
We made Mr. Allen's acquaint
ance several years ago when snow
bound at his place for three days,
aud formed a high opinion of his
character as a man and citizen. He
was conscientious, charitable, earn
est, outspoken, and a thorough pat
riot, uuiversally respected for his
manly qualities. This were a good
world, indeed, it composed of men
like Cyrus Allen, aud we heartily
join the Republican in saying:
"He is dead, but his name and
memory will live in many hearts
aud households in this county. Let
it he said of him as we bow mourn
fully over his grave, his virtues
were many, his faults were few, aud
vices he had none. There has been
no time since we have known Cyrus
Allen that he was not prepared to
die. In his death the county loses
one of its best citizens, society one
of its brightest ornaments, and vir
tue one of her truest champions.
His face and form we shall see no
more, but the memory of his -pure
life we can retain forever."

Dear Journal: You will want
to know something from time to
time of the prospects and prosperity
of your rival city of Gcuoa. "Well,
she is just now recumbent like the
Sphinx, revolving her future great
ness, though it cannot be said of her
that she equals Chicago in size,
yet it can be 6aid of her, as it
hardly can of Chicago, that every
house within the limits of the cor
poration (to be) is full, and that
some houses are crowded.
The first term of tho Normal
School has cuded, leaving three
pretty distinct impressions on the
students' minds: First, that Mr.
Rakestraw has a peculiar aptitude
for getting them on, and making
them 6tudy; second, that he is thor
oughly in his work ; and third, that
he counts nothing too much for his
pupils, who, in return, seem to cher
ish a wonderful loyal enthusiasm
for their teacher. The number of
students is not yet as great as it
should be, but " Retain aud search
after," seems to be the motto.
If any strangers come to Colum
bus inquiring for homes, take your
percentage and pass the rest on to
us. Judging both by experience
and observation, I can say that they
are likely to find the Messrs. Willard
considerate and accommodating
landlords, bent on turning a pleasant
site into a pleasaut town.

have looked the example over and

the candle is the light which causes
the shadow and he does not 6tate, if
