The lecture delivered last Fri
day evening, by R. F. Steele, on
Julius Cu.'sar, his life aud exploits,
is highly spoken of by those who
heaid it, as full of wit and humor.
Mr. Steele is gaining quite a reputa
tion as a lecturer and humorous
paragrapher. He seems to have hit
upon his life-work iu this veiu.
Everybody is expected to buy a

Charles Wentworth, son of Z.
Wentworth, and formerly one of the
proprietors of the Courant of Platts
moutb, and the Democrat of this
place, died at Racine, Wis., last week.
We sympathise with the young wife,

clining years, who naturally leaned
on his son for 6iiccor and comfort.
The first number of the Colum
bus Democrat, A. B. and J. K. Cof
froth, publishers, made its appear
ance Mouday last. It is a teven

worker for the welfare of the city
aud county the Journal welcomes
the new paper.
Henry Lubker tells us that we
were wrongfully informed in pub
lishing him as having a second run
away on the same day, or at all. He
thinks one waB enough auyhow, as
he had a very narrow escape, being
dragged quite a distance, behind the
horses heels. He says that if they
had been vicious be would have been
kicked to death.
M. Erb of Shell creek was in
town Saturday, and gave us a busi
ness call. Like every seneible, hon
est man, Mr. Erb would like to see
some way devised so that district,
county and state governments would
be conducted on a more economical
basis, thus lessening the burdeua of
taxation. Public debts have become
enormous, with very little to show
John L. Peters of Boone county
was in the city Wednesday last ; he
was glad to hear of the situation of
railroad affaire, and said the new
route would be just the thing for all
tho towns and tributary country on
the new line, ColumbuB being their
old trading point. Columbus, too,
would find it of advantage in a
thousand ways that could not now
be thought of, but would develop as
business interests would grow.
The concert of the Columbus
Maennerchor at their hall Thursday
evening for the benefit of the suffer
ers from the recent flood, was, con
sidering the unpleasantness of the
evening, very well attended, and the
music was first-class, the kind the
society always give to the public.
Mrs. Bowman, Miss Rosa North,
Miss Mamie Huuueman and Mary
Turner took part in the evening's
It is stated on good authority
that our branch railroad will now
be extended to Columbus. We be
lieve, if that is true, that it is a wise
move, and ono that 'will be most
satisfactory to the greatest number
of all parties concerned. It will
certainly help Platte, Nance aud
Boone couuties, as will it the cor
poration. We understand that work
will begin immediately. Genoa
H. C. Beau says that the channel
cut by the Platte, across J. E. North's
farm west of Barnum's, was one to
two rods wide, aud iu some places
fourteen feet deep. During tho rise
there was four feet of water in the
Mat. Beebe honee, and two feet in
No. 5 school-house. Mr. Barnum
had two miles of his fence swept
away. Mr. Beau lost the half of
his. Mr. Smith, who was preparing
to build a stable, had the lumberand
a keg of nails washed off, but he will
probably get it all back.
We see it suggested that coal be
supplied to school-districts iu the
summer time. We add that it
would be an excellent thing for
manufacturing establishments that
use coal, for business men and such
well-to-do citizens as have (he means
to be economical and buy their fuel
in large quantities, .'wheu it is easily
obtained and can be had at reasona
ble rates. Columbus has been well
situated this winter in that respect
her coal bills being very reasonable
in price and tolerably abundant iu
The editor of the Genoa Leader
recently visited Keatskotooa in
Platte county, to see their new pub
lic library, and grows very enthu
siastic over the same. Every com
munity of any importance or self
respect should be provided with
some sort of public library worthy
of the name. Modem civiliza

complete without it. It is in this
way that the poorest son or daugh

Yes, and he is Just the man for the

Additional news from Omaha

lower portions of Council Bluffs are
very badly flooded and at least five I
hundred people living in that part
of the city have been compelled to
abandon their houses and are being
cared for at the Court House and at
Bloom & Nixon's Opera House, fed
and lodged at the city's expense. It
is also reported that portions of
Nebraska City are flooded, and the

Dan. C. Kavanaugh returuea
Monday from Milwaukee, where he
had been called by the illness of his

he received word of his death. The
deceased was fifteen years old and at

messenger boys of the Wisconsin
assembly. At the adjournment, the
Speaker referred to the deceased as

It has been said that he who
makes two blades of grass grow
where only one grew before, is a
benefactor of his race. Evon so, he
who shows a man how to accom
plish a given object with one-half
the expense ordinarily made. And
it is a false notion, too, to think that
this will discourage business. On
the other hand, it greatly encourages
it. A correspondent of the Genoa
jEectrfer.who evidently knows where
fof be affirms, has this to say of con
crete houses: "Sixteen years ago, I
luelped to build a house width, 44
ft. ; length, 80 ft. ; height 42 ft. When
the walls were ready for the wood
work, it had cost $1,150. It stands
as firm yet, as the day it was built.
A concrete house can be built at 35
cts. per yard. Get coarse, clean
sand; take 1 bbl. lime, 7 of sand, 1
pail of cement; mix well. If too
rich, add sand to reduce it to the
stiffness for stone work. Put the
mortar in the wall and crowd it full
of brick bats, gravel or stone. The
more you put in, the cheaper the
house. This most any one can do,
but the cement face will have to be
put on by a mason. A frame house
that will cost say $1,200 cau bo bail
of concrete for $650."

We received the following com

As a voter and citizen of Colum
bnB, and a poor one at that, I hope
the project will not fall through, for,
as bluff Dave Anderson says, we
want that road, right here. In the
first place, it will bring as residents
here, probably from ten to twenty
workingmen, who, I contend, are as
essential to the building up of a
town as any part of the community,
for whatever recompense they re
ceive for their labor, is circulated in
the town. Therefore I earnestly
hope the moneyed men of Columbus
will be willing to risk a little of
their wealth for the welfare of the
city,wbere they have mostly made it.
For whatever may be the faults of
railroad companies, this much must
be acceded to them ; they are the
advance guard of civilization in the
building up of the country which
they go through, and I believe the
good will of the officials of the Un
ion Pacific road will greatly advance
the prosperity of our city, because
bur interests aud theirs will be more
nearly identical. Jas. Salmon.
I will close out my etock of im

A gentleman of wide agricultural
knowledge said to a writer in the
Rural Spirit, of Oregon : "I have

wheat this year, and it cost me every
cent to raise aud market the grain,

besides they put back on tho farm
more than half that amount, while
