The Burglar Aferad.
Ou Sunday night James B. Large
and H. W. Hall (who have both had
employment in the city for some
time), were found by Chief of Police
McMahon attempting to effect an
entrance to Acklny's saloon on Olive
(street. The night watch at the
Hammond House had beard suspi
cious sounds across the way, and
called McMahon's attention to them.
Mac. approached the place, found a
ladder back of the saloou, reaching
down into Eavanaugh's garden.
Leaping over the fence, he secured
his two men, and started towards
the jail with them. Meeting police
man Brandt he gave them into his
charge and went back to investigate
further, and see if any thing had been
stolen. After a little while police
man Brandt reappeared, and it then
occurred to McMahon to inquire
whether the "birds" bad been put
into the cage or not, and on learning
that they were in jail but outside the
cage the officers hurried down, to
find that Large and Hall needed
only a blow or two more to effect
their escape. With the pump han
dle they had made a hole through
the brick wall almost large enough
for a man to crawl through. Of
course they we.ro then pet within
the iron cage, where they are sup
posed to be secure.
It appears that the same night
some parties broke into Jackson's
saloon on 11th street, taking there
from $1.90. $1.70 of the money as
described was found on the persons
of the men arrested and the cut
thumb of Large, with the blood on
the window and money-drawer at
Jackson's all were such strong proof
of guilt thai the accused were order
ed by Police Judge Bowman to give
bond for their appearance at the
next term of the District Court,
failing which, they were remanded
The place where the road crosses
Lost creek on the west line of the
old Senecal farm, where the bridge
Bometime since was-burned, has
turned out to be a fearful stick hole.
Several teams, wo learn, have re
cently stuck fast and caused consid
erable damage to teams and harness.
Would it not be well enough for the
officials having charge of such mat
tern to look after this dangerous
place in the public highway, and
have it repaired before they are
called upon to respond to a suit for
damages sustained by injuries re
ceived. S. S. Rickly, president of the
Capital City Bank, at Columbia,
Ohio, and brother of John Rickly of
this city, was shot at noon on Wed
nesday of last week, by a man
named Andrew Eichenberg, throngh
the head while standing at his desk.
Eichenberg was on the street and as
soon as he shot Mr. Rickly he plaoed
the revolver to his own temple and
shot himself, dying almost instantly.
It is believed that Mr. Rickly will
recover, but with the loss of both
his eyes. The trouble between them
grow out of Rickly's refusal to loan
On Wednesday last J. B. Wells
and Platte Baker of this city weut
up to Albion to take charge, of the
train between Duncan and Albion,
the former as engineer, tho latter as
fireman. Wc learn that it will be a
mixed train, leaving Albion at 7
the morning, and connecting with
the U. P. express at Duncan. This
will giye an opportunity for people
along the line to reach Columbus
readily and our business men
should see well to it that sufficient
inducements are held out to make
it an object for them to come in.
Mr. Pickett of Ravenna, Ohio,
has purchased two hundred acres
of land east of Sheedy'a on the
Bluff northeast of the city, where he
will probably locate his family next
spring. Mr. Pickett has been a
prominent citizen of Ravenna, is a
gentleman of culture, and will make
an excellent citizen of Platte co.
. Barnum's greatest show on
earth is advertising Columbus more
than any one thing has done in a
long time. The show here is his
only exhibition on this trip, between
Omaha and Cheyenne, and all the
towns, villages and neighborhoods
for a radius of fifty mileB are being
billed for the great show.

P. T. BARNUM'S GREATEST SHOW
Coming to Columbus, Saturday, July
Barnura is coming the real, genuine,
unadulterated Barnum Barnum who
under the pretense of being a humbug
has given more wholesome amusement
than any nun who ever lived in it, is
surely and really coming to Columbus
with his " own and only Great Show on
Earth." The wuOLEshow is coming, too,
not a part of it, for Barnum never di
vides his show, and the same attractions
will be given in Columbus as he gave in
New York, Boston, Chicago and all the
large cities east and west. Owing to the
fact that he has announced to show in
Cheyenne on Monday, Aug. 2d, ho will
be able to giro only one exhibition here
and that one In the afternoon. This will
give all our country friends for fifty
miles round a chance to see the greatest
and best show in the world and return
after the performance, as trains will be
run on all roads at reduced, rates, and
our towns people can go as well, as
Barnum's tents ure largo enough to hold
all comers comfortably. "We copy the
following from the Boston Journal:
Now a word for the perform
ance. It wan all that was claimed for it
by the managers. The rand entree was
perfectly Immense. The wonderful
feats of the Trakene stallions under the
direction of Mons. It. if. Dockrill; the
Nelson family in their novel acrobatic
and nosturinc feats and as fiddling
clowns. The excellent maneqe act of
jiauamc juari.ua uiu nun iic)aiu,
SIgnora Marcellus in her classical prin
cipal act; Miss Emma Lake in her tine
equestrienism; Mr. Orrin Hollis' bare
back act; the horse Salamander, leaping
through the nrey hoops; Madame Nel
son and her trained doves; Madame
Dockrill, in her reckless single and six
horse priding;. Mr, Whlto and his per
forming oxen; SIgnor Sebastian and'bis
little son, in their startling bareback
act; the leaping horse, the bounding
stag, and the batout leaping by tho en
tire troupe, ending with Mr. John
Batcbclor's double somersault over the
backs of Hoven elephants follow each
other in rapid succession, the whole
properly spiced by the quips and qulrps
of a half score of clowns, under the lead
of Mr. John Robinson. But the great
feature of the show, and one which
elicits deep interest, is the startling act
of the fearless little Zazel, whose dizzy
walk on an almost imperceptible wire,
her dive headforemost from an elevation
of sixty teet, her flight through the air
from the mouth of a monster cannon,
are performances that excite the imag
ination and please the fancy of the
strong, and shake the nerves oj" the more
timid. She is a graceful artiste, and
uerforms what she undertakes grace
fully, and without the least fear of
