"Husband, where have you been,

We learn that Eben Pierce, for

Pap Clother tells of a man in Ne

the Missouri was ten feet higher
than it is now. Next.
The best work on the roads ib
done while the soil is reasonably
moist. This is especially the best
time in the city, not alone because
of the compactness of the roads, but
because it causes the least dust. By
all means, if work is to be done on
the 6treels, let it be now or soon.
A letter came back to a Colum
bus correspondent tho other day from

avoid delay and vexation.

W. W. Burgess, of the Genoa
Leader was in the city Friday last
shaking hands with his many
friends. We are glad to see that the

and the region round about are des
tined to make their mark in the his

A good many dealers in Nebras
ka who have handled hay this long
and hard winter have made a nice
thing out of their investments, es
pecially those living near the large
towns and cities. Hay went up
gradually as the demand for the
article increased, starting at $3, and
going to $10, $12, &c, and at Omaha
reaching $20 per ton.

If farm machinery were sold "for
cash only the manufacturers would
make more money, because they
would dispense with all their collec
tion appliances and have uo bad
debts, and farmers would save more
because they would buy only what
was indispensable, and get it at
greatly reduced prices, perhaps oue
half the present quotations.
J. C. Pax ton of Butler county,
is a very neat advertiser. In the
Independent he says : "Iu order to
live, I sell goods. Iu order to sell
goods, I must have customers. In
order to have customers, I must sell
cheap. In order to sell cheap, I
must buy for cash. In order to buy
for cash, I must sell for cash. In
order to sell for cash, I must and
will make prices low."
On the outside of to-day's Jour
nal we publish a very interesting
incident of the late flood on the Mis
souri river one of the many peri
lous situations and narrow escapes.
On the outside will also be found a
reply to the "awful" article of Prof.
Grimmer's, tho reading of which
will show how important it is that
belief on vital subjects should rest
upon very strong testimony.
We saw friend Barnum Satur
day for the first time in many weeks,
though he says he has been in town
several times since the flood. He
gave us a very graphic-description
of his laBt experience hauling hay
twenty-five miles and being upset
near home, at night, in a mndhole
about four feet deep. He wouldn't
lend you any of that hay to save
your life he prizeB it so highly.
We learn that our good friend,
Capt. Hammond, objects to our very
modest way of quoting his emphatic
words last week. Get it exactly
right or not at all. The Journal,
if anything, is truthful, but never
likes to even seem rough or harsh.
This is all the excuse we can render
for not quoting word for word in
this instance. The Journal pre
fers to leave some things to the im
agination of the reader.
Judge Geer goes to Lincoln this
week in attendance on the Supreme
Court. The Judge, though severely
afflicted with rheumatism, is a man
of wonderful industry, which quality
always makes itself felt in the law.
He has three suits on hand at the
present term: Behr vs. Willard;
Diedtrick vs. L. & N. W. R. R. ; and
the case of Palmer vs. Maxwell, in
which he is engaged with N. D.
Jackson, Esq., of Oakdale.
If some one who knows how to
baudle the machinery and will take
interest enough to make the invest
ment, we believe money -could be
made here by an establishment for
working up sugar cane. There
would be an abundance of it plant
ed if farmers knew that they could
have access to a mill. It can be
raised as easily as com, and at no
greater expense, and we are told
that it would pay a farmer to'haul it
ten miles to a mill. "

Our town was favored last week
, by a gathering of ladies representing
the " Woman's Presbyterial Mis
sionary Society" of Omaha Presby
tery. There are eighteen auxiliary
societies in this Presbytery ; they
meet regularly once a month, and
are orgauized for homo and foreign
mission work. The Presbvterian
ladies of the Slate of Nebraska Iihvj
pledged themselves to support two
missionary teachers, Miss Carrie A.
Farrand, who labors iu the Home
Mission field at Malade City, Idaho,
and Miss Agnes Carey, who works
among the heathen women in
The ladies of Omaha Presbyter)
have, during the past year, raised
$600 to prosecute their work.
Some of the reports from auxiliary
societies were particularly interest
ing, giving in detail the various
modes of work, the hindrances en
countered, etc., etc. The ladies of
Creston pledge sufficient, yearly, to
support a scholar in the girlf' school
at Laos, Siam, to be named "Cres
ton." During the afternoon session the
ladies of Columbus resolved to form
themselves iuto an auxiliary society
aud join the ranks of workers, who
extend in one unbroken chain from
the Atlantic to thePacific coast. Mrs.
McGinitie was chosen as president ;
Mrs. Bowman, vice president; Miss
White, secretary, aud Mrs. Marshall
The PreBbytery invited the ladies
to occupy the eveuiug in their exer
cises ; tho audience present was large
and appreciative. Program as fol
lows : Report of Creston auxiliary,
read by Mrs. F. N. McCandlish;
report of Young Ladies' Band ot
Omaha, by Miss Lida Wilson ; Gen
eral Presbyterial Reports by Mrs.
A. P. Nicholas, tho Presbyterial sec
retary ; a Sabbath school exeiciso
ou India, led by Mrs. P. L. Perrine.
We are glad to see the ladie enter
so heartily, so euthuiastically, upon
this work, as it is so emphatically
" woman's work for woman" and
none but women can have access to
the degraded occupants of the ze
nanas aud harems of heathen lands.
The status of womau iu any coun
try, defines its civilization ; hence the
women, the mothers of heathen
lands, must be reached before wc
can expect to find the countries
A highly intelligent and cultivated
Hindoo gentleman (uot a christian,
however), recently asserted, at a lit
erary dinner iu Bombay, India, that
India could never approach tho high
type of civilization of' England until
her women occupied a higher plane.
This work of educating the wo
men in heathen lands, is what our
Jadies' missionary organizations of
the .United States are uow doing.
We wish them a hearty God speed.

From one of our officials wo learn
the following particulars. About
two weeks ago Johu Kiphus, a Po
landcr living between Platte Center
and Humphrey, was missing. The
last seen of him, he bad passed ou
ahead of threo companions named
Briggs, Serosa and Gotez, all of
whom had been at Platte Center and
were returning home. They said
he, being pretty full of liquor, bad
probably fallen through the bridge
over Elm creek. The officer tells
ub that'two sons of the missing man,
aged 17 aud 22, drove their mother
from the dwelling-house, and them
selves took possession. Certain
other men, who were known not to
have any money before this affair,
had several dollars to spend, which
fact attracted suspicion to them.
Later (Tuesday morning), we hear
that the missing body was fouud
Monday eveuiug in the bed of Elm
creek, and that the actiug coroner
would hold an inquest immediately,
when we suppose the facts will be
The sheep shearing festival has
become quite au institution at Bea
trice, and perhaps has done as much
as any one thing of its kiud could to
encourage sheep raising in that sec
tion of tho state. There are there
some very fine flocks of the wealth
produciug animal flocks that show
tho special knowledge of their mas
ters, aud the care and attention bes
towed. To succeed, a man should
have au aflection for, and a pride in
the welfare of, the animal under his
care, as well as give them his close
personal attention. With -a good
start iu stock of any kind in Ne
braska, aud tho care that a man of
ordinary ability gives to auything
he turns strict attention to, thero is
no doubt of success.
In pursuance of the call mado by
tho Clerk on tho 16th day of April,
the Co. Commissioners met iu spe

consider a petition from citizens of
Columbus precinct asking the sub
mission to a vote, of a proposition
to donate bonds to the O., N. & B.
H. R. R. Co. A $100 bond was pre
sented, securing the expenses of the
election in case the proposition is

agreed to submit the proposition, as
