John Aldcrson left with us last

evening entertained a very fair
audience at the Opera House.
We have not space to notice
the performance as we would

no criticism to offer, as the part of
each and all was well performed

The protracted meeting in pro
gress for the past week in the M. E.
Church is still being conducted by
the minister in charge, Rev. J. Q A.
Flcharty, and Rev. Roe, of Omaha,
with increased attendance and in
terest. During the past" week Rev.
Roe has delivered many interesting
and instructive sermons.
''The warm weather the past few
days has had rather a fructifying effect
on several of the lied Kibboii "scions"
set out in this city, last Fall by Mr.
Finch. They apparently passed" thro'
the. early fiosts of temptations unscath
ed, but when the thaw of continued ab
stinence came on they have been
"spewing out" until the temperance
vineyard begins to look duarthy."
We find the above in the local
columns of the last Era. It sounds
like Hensley's writing, but who
docs he mean ?
Jas. Miller, who has for some
time past kept a saloon on 12th St.,
"left for parts unknown" on
Wednesday night last. He sold his
whiskey for $975, getting $503 in
money aud disposing of the balance.
Wc learn that his debts in town
amount to considerable, his main
creditors, however, being wholesale
liquor dealers ; Mr. Miller's wife aud
child are left behind, but, it is sup
posed, not deserted.
Probably no family in the
county has a more patriotic record
than that of G. W. Fulton's. He
and seven of his brothers were iu
the ccrv'ce during the Rebellion.
Three of his brothers were killed
and all the remainder wounded, one
of them now carrying six wounds,
and he a preacher, who was Lieut.
Col. of the Fire Zouaves and second
in command when Col. Ellsworth
Ghordis Stull was in town
Saturday, and gave us quite a
length description of the large
prairie fire that was seen raging in
his neighborhood Friday evening
and night. It started about two
miles west of Wendelboe's, struck
north towards the river, the wind
changing so as to complete the
circuit, and finally letting itself
loose, climbing the bluff's south and
speeding away. He had uot heard
of any damage being done.
Hon. T. C. Ryan has placed us
under obligations for public docu
ments and reports, especially for a
copy of the annual report of the
State Superintendent of Public In
struction. From it we learn that
for the past year no less than 2690
school districts have been organized.
That there are 103,161 children of
school ago in the 6tate, and that
62,7S5 have been in actual attend
ance. The number of male teachers
employed are 1,609, females 2,121.

We could tell him by his gait,
when he "got a gait agoing" that he
was a tramp. He had the regular,
indescribable shuffle, mixed of hope
and despair and a pair of run-down
shoes. lie had just been treated to
a free dinner and a free cigar, and
felt a little bigger than life. He had
genius, evidently. His eye was full,
in fact the orbs of vision visibly
bulged and the whole region round
about was bulbous. Aud he was a
reporter. He had written for the
Chicago Times. Did we remember
an account of the tramps in Iowa?
We did, and expressed our admira
tion. That piece of special work he
claimed as his, and no doubt he
could have written it. Ho had done
other pieces of special work. He
thought he could "write up Platte
county in the interests of emigra
tion, and sell two thousand papers
and he would work on couinns
ion." The scheme looked plausible
to him, but the Journal force
had its hands full just now of regular
work and didn't feci justified iu in
vesting in the enterprise. The
English Reporter then went his
way, not rejoicing, neither, that we
know, sorrowing, to any great ex
tent. Departing, he weut out of
memory, until a telegram from
Jackson, from our good friend, Jno.
Strasser, reaches us: "Englishman
here selling copies supplementary to
Journal. Has he authority?" Of
course wc answered John by light
ning, and we hope that no friend of
the Journal has been deceived by
the peripatetic reporter.
Editor Journal: The house of
W. C. Griffith, three and one-half
miles northwest of Rising City, was
burned .yesterday; he has for some
lime, been using one of those Rus
sian stoves, for heating purposes,
the fire caught from that. Part of
the household goods saved, but when
help arrived it was too late to save
the building. Mr. Griffith is an old
settler, and will have the sympathy
of his neighbors in his severe loss.
Another large store building is

little city, with hall above, 24x52,

Journal whether the late severe
cold weather has injured any portion
of the fruit prospects for next sea
son ? Why Not.
Columbus, Jan. 21st, 1879.
Ed. Journal: A correspondent
through your columns asks how to
cure a horse of pulling on the hal
ter. The best method that I have
tried is as follows: Put on a very
strong halter with a rope-stall ; pass
the rope over the rail of the manger
and back towards the horse on the
under side of the rail so that it will
run freely; put a common strap
hopple on one hind ankle and tic
the rope in the ring of the hopple 60
that the horse can have about the
usual room when tied. Let him
wear this a week, and he is cured;
if a very old animal it will come
back sometimes, particularly if you
change stables, but any ordinary
horse will never pull again ; of
course, this would do no good on a
perfectly wild horse, until they get
over the first fright and come to
their senses. A strong surcingle
put on so as to hold up the rope will
keep it out of the dirt, but is not
absolutely necessary ; the expense is
small, and the satisfaction of walk
ing up to your horse's head giving
him a jerk, saying, "why don't you
pull back," then seeing him meekly
lean towards the manger, more than
repays the outlay, for of all the
pull-backs extant, the most ridicu
lous, inconvenient, aggravating pull
backs is the horse pull-back.

Instead of Jan. 30th, as hereto
fore announced, the Columbus Mam

concert at the Opera House, on the
evening of Feb. 3d. The entertain
ments of the club arc always good,
and attendants may expect a rare
treat. Tickets for 6ale at Brodfueh

of a similar organization at Omaha
were expected to be present at the
Concert by the Maanuerchor of this

has been postponed till that time.

We don't know where the Stanton
Index gets its information iu regard
to Columbus but it is well enough
for our readers to know what is said
abroad in reference to the intentions
of Platte couuty yoters :
''Reports have been in circulation
this week that the Covington, Co
lumbus Ss Black Hills Railway has
changed bauds, and that during the
next thirty days said company will
submit a proposition to Wayne and
Stanton counties, aud to one or two
precincts in Madison county, to vote
bonds for the construction of said
road. Platto county stands ready to
vote them $100,000 and Stanton and
Wayne are ready to do their portion.
This time it is to be a standard
guago road, and is backed by other
and older railroad enterprises. This
is the line of railroad we want, and
by voting seven or eight per cent,
bonds, the road will be completed to
this place by the middle of Sept."
To Whom it may Concern.
Parties knowing themselves in
debted to me will please call and
settle their accounts, either by cash
or note, on or before the first day of
February, 1879. By complying
with the request you will save costs.
All old accounts must be settled by
this date. Yours respectfully,

heart and blood, the action of the

immediately connected with the
workings of the Liver. It has been
successfully proved that Green's
August Flower is unequalled in
curing all persons afflicted with
Dyspepsia or Liver Complaint, and

result from an unhealthy condition of
the Liver and Stomach. Sample
