The State democratic central com
mittee has decided to hold the Slate
convention of that party at Hastings
this time. The state committees on
all hands are getting to exercise
good judgment, or otherwise, in -selecting
places away from central
portions of the state for holding state
conventions. The people should
look after this committee and place
men on it who know where the con
ter of the population and of the state,
can be found. This thing of com
pelling delegates to travel hundreds
of miles to reach a convention loca
ted away from the center and at one
side of the state should be investiga
ted aud a remedy applied, and this
year is just as good a time as any
other to put the right men on tho
state central committees.
That Bridge Business.
Editor Journal: I notice in
your paper of the 14th a paragraph
referring to the Platte river bridge
being out ot repair and a man who
had a loaded wagon for the south
side was afraid to cross, aud so went
to our county clerk, John Stauffer,
to sec about it, when, according to
the Journal's account, Mr. Stauffer
should have said that the commis
sioners didn't want to repair the
same. Now I, aj one of the coni
misnioners, emphatically say this is
a falsehood, and I can scarcely be
lieve that our clerk said so, as he
well knows that I, as one of the
Board, and my associates, too, feel
inclined to keep these bridges in
repaii, if possible, and every other
avenue loading to Columbus. I hold
that a member of the Board would
be recieaut to the trust reposed in
him, if ho turned his back on keep
ing these highways open, particu
laily when they are aware that
Columbus pays over half the taxes
of the county. Suffice to say that
the very moment Win. Routson, the
supervisor, told us about tho matter,
it then being 5 o'clock, and yet at
work at the Court House, we started
forthwith to see the situation oi
affairs, which Mr. Routson will cor-

We believe our Board of Commis-
sioners mean to do what is rijjht, j
hiii it very often happens thnt public
affairs are not attended to wilh that
promptness and diapstch which char
acterize an ciicrgotic man in hi"
personal allair, and it is little won
der that men are not patient when
they are compelled lo travel a coro
of miles out of their road, when they
have, n rifiht to rely on tho public
highway beiiifr in reasonably good
order at all times, or out of repair
for only such time as is required to
put them in good repair. The
Journal is iu the habit of gathering
its cream of news fresh from the
milk of events, and we can not
doubt the accuracy of what was said
in this matter. With nil due defer
ence to the chairman of the Board
of Commissioners, it must ho allow
ed that a citizen of Platte couuty, a
tax-payer, and a property holder
south of the Platte river, likewise,
ha a right to know why he should
be compelled to find his way, with a
hoavy load, southeast, by striking
out west "tho shortest way acro,
tho longest way around" don't 6uit

man, is the bridge repaii ed now?

"Yes, find thou always time to say

It is an old saying, that "blessings
brighten as they take their flight :
and It is, by far, too true. We often
do not appreciate them until it is
ifany a mother who has spent the
best years of her life in caring, toil
ing for, and watching over her chil
dren, has been repaid by them with
unkindness and neglect, even when
sickness or old Age overtook her,
and they did not appreciate her, till
her tired arms were folded, and she
laid away in the grave, and then it
was too late.
And sometimes tho wife forgets,
till too late, that even In the darkest
hour, she can brighten home, and
cause her husband to go out Into the
busy world with a conqueror's
spirit; that no matter how people
worry and annoy him all day, far off,
her cheerful, loving presence may
shine, and he, meanwhile, think he
will have rest at home.
And men. by the thousand, daily
indulge in worse than useless habits,
such as drinking, gambling, smok
ing and chewing, whoso families are
9orely in need of the money thus
squandered, but these same men fly
into a rage every time they are
reminded of it I But when their
loved onCB have left this life iorcver,
then with regret they exclaim, too
late, too late ! X. D. Howe.
