Notwithstanding the very gen
tle hint we quoted last week from
the Central City Courier, the young
man who docs up the locals for the
JZra continues to pilfer his items
from the Jouknal. While we must
acknowledge admiration for his
sound discriminating judgment
which knows what is good, we must
be allowed to say that his virtues
arc not of the perpendicular order.

The editor of the Omaha Jiee
must not lay quite so much stress
upon tbe ebullitions of his corres
pondent, C. E. M., at least so far as
Columbus is concerned. For in
stance, there is no " mighty howl"
against tbe TJ. P., aud a " dangerous
murmur of indignation," aud no
thirst of revenge " permeates tbe
highest and the lowest." The truth
is simply, and this is recognized by
all thinking men here, the U. P. Co.
has done nothing more than might
have been expected of her, having
ouc-fiflh the A. & N. bonds to pay.

by a horse driven uy Gus. and Louis
Scbuedcr. As we are informed, the
horse was at the time going nt a
brisk trot, his knee striking the
boy's back and the two wheels on
one side of the buggy both passing
over the boy's bowels. It might
have been a most serious matter for
all concerned as it was at first sup
posed that the lad could not recover.
The occurrence, as we look at it, is
a practical lesson to the drivers, to
the boy, and likewise to the City
At Mr. Barker's sheep ranch
north of the city, tbo storm of rain
and wind which occurred about 2
o'clock Thursday morning last scat
tered things about pretty lively. The
roof of tbc sheep corral was blown
off. and scattered in every direction,
and some of the boards split in
pieces, and about 125 feet of the'eor
ral fence blown down. The build
ing at the ranch is only one story,
14x22, which, by the force of the
storm, was moved about fourteen
feet from the foundation, wrenching
all the doors from the stove, turning
the table and dishes into one corner
of the building, and greatly alarm
ing the persons sleeping therein.
Three persons were at the corral and
house, none of whom were injured.
The only thing killed on the premi
ses was one chicken.
x The U. P. surveyors were at
Jackson on the 4th. We understand
that their last survey has been made
from Jackson to tho O. & K. V. It. B.
which strikes that road at a point
between Bising and Osceola, mid
from which place the U. P. intends
continuing the road to Lincoln.
Stranger things than such a project
are liable to occur, as well as the
erection of a round-house at Jack
son. The land is a little rough north
and west of Jackson, but there is
good territory enough in that vicin
ity upon which to build up a large
city, large enough to support the
capital of any state in the Union.
The citizens of Jackson and vicinity
arc excited upon all these subjects,
and we cannot blame them for look
ing after and taking care of what
they regard as their own interests.
Wednesday night of last week
was a good time to set for a moon

did" time that bad been anticipated
by a most jolly crew, to something
that didn't prove quite so nice; at
least that's what "Jim Devero"

who, by the way, is gaining for him

From Jackson north to the Loup
valley is found what is known as
the Little. Sand Hills. It is a sin
gular formation, but most assuredly
never formed iu the manner that
citizens generally suppose, by the
action of the wind storms blowing
of the sand into hills, valleys aud
ravines; if thus formed, how was it
possible that the same wind could
blow clay soil into the same hills aud
vales? All the valleys and hills arc
now iu July covered with grass, and
wouut sustain tnousauus upou
thousands of cattle or sheep for sum
mer grazing. Thoso lands belong
almost entirely to government and
tho U. P. It. R. Co., and persons
seeking homes in the west have
passed them by and they remain un
occupied. We learn from a citizen
similar formed lands extend from
the Loup valley in this county north
of the U. P. railroad as far west as
Kearney, and arc unoccupied except
in exceptional cases where the val
lies are rich and wide enough to
farm. We predict thut the time
will come when these lands will be
occupied in the summer by large
herds of cattle aud sheop, and the
thought may originate in a wild im
magination but we firmly believe
that along the slopes of this clay
laud aud even to the tops of the
highest hills will grow the richest

Jtest Application forIturiis.
Thomas O'Neal's child, aged IS
months was badly scalded with hot
tea last Thursday night. It reached
up to the table and tipped a cupful
of boiling tea, the contents of the
cup going over its throat and chest
and a large portion down its throat,
tho steam getting into the wind
pipe. The case was a peculiar one
and the child suffered terribly. The
fond parents gave up their little one
as beyond help, but brought the
child to the city (22 miles) to have
the suffering allaved. Drs. Mitchell
& Martyn of the Institute took
charge of the little fellow, and when
we saw him Saturday he seemed to
be enjoying himself very nicely.
Dr. Martyn tells us that it is a fact,
which should be universally known,
that common baking soda, (bicar
bonate of soda) such as every good
woman has in the house, is the best
application known forburns. Spread
it thick ou the scalded flesh, and
dampen a cloth to put over it, being
careful to have it 60 well saturated
that it will permeate (he soda. Many
a life might be 6aved in this way.
The application should be made at
once, and for after treatment call in
a physician. About a year ago the
Jouknal mentioned an instanco of
the wonderful properties of soda to
preserve the flesh from the effects of
fire, and we desire to so strongly
impress tho fact that no one who
reads this will ever forget it.
The Staging1 Wind.
Last Thursday night J. A. Wood,
living 8J-' miles west of Columbus,
was wakened up with the crash of a
window, and found his house gone
away from over his head, leaving
nothing but the floor. The house
was of log, one and a half stories,
and was scattered so far and wide
that 25 Philadelphia lawyers could
not put it together again. A little
boy, tip-stairs, was carried fifteen
rods, wrapped up in a quilt, and laid
down as gently as a mother would
lay her babe to rest. The cupboard
was knocked down, but not a dish
broken. A clock was carried quite
a distance, but only the looking
glass in it broken. No one of the
four occupants of the house was
hurt. The same wind unroofed an
unoccupied building in the same
neighborhood, belonging to George
