Aspall, a lato resident of Stanton precinct, Colfax couuty, was buried here on Tuesday last. He was a native of Lancashire, England. The amount of money to be dis tributed at this point for the flax eeed that has been engaged for de livery here, is estimated at .$40,000. Monday being one of the holi days of the Catholic church, services were held in the churches on that day here, which were well at tended. Judge Kinney will open a state fair office this week at the Wilhnell bouse in Omaha, and will, remain there all the time until the secretary moves his office up from Lincoln. Those at the ball Saturday even ing, given by the Keystones of this city in honor of the R. & M. Club of Omaha, report it as a very enjoyable occasion. The Messrs. Ernst expect to move to their new place of business the second week iu Sept., the notice (Mr. Gerrard's now building.) to be finished by that time. Adam Kail, Esq., a prominent attorney of Upper Sandusky, Ohio, is sojourning in Nebraska for his health, which is improving. He is an old friend of Dr. Schug and Judge Bowmau. David Carrig has had a touch of ague lately. Twenty-two years ago when he lived iu Indiana, he was vexed with it all the time. He has it now, once in a long time when he catches a bad "cold." Harry Rriggs of Albion was in the city several days last week. He is just "as fat as he used to be," but it is distributed over more space. He has grown so much that some of his old acquaintances didn't kuow him. It was a caution to see old Jim, (Gus. Recher's twenty-four year old white horse) keep his place ou the road Saturday, iu front oi some fast hoit.es. It is said that old Jim in his voung days used to make a mile" in 2": 40. The Democracy of Platte county are beginning to "set up the pius" for the couuty offices this fall. No use, gentlemen, the tide has come, and you might as well get into the other boat or conclude to be left high and dry on the beach. Ahner Turner and E. J. Raker have a large interest in cattle in the South Park country, under the charge of Charles Zeigler. They are all there now. Charles snys that it is a splendid country, and that the cattle will got hog fat on the grass. L. Rcrhanpt returned from Chicago "Saturday. He has had a very liberal proposition made him from the east, and will probably leave us this week. He has been a faithful, good workman, making man friends during his sojourn among us. Charles Dietrich is at work on a portrait, in oil, of E. I). Shechan. lie is making a tine likeness of Ed., one that no acquaintance of his can fail to recognize. Charles will evi dently make a good painter his improvement in the last year being something wonderful. As to their Platte river bridge, which was new when the flood strurk it, tlio North Rend Bulletin has to say : "There seems but one thing for us Renders to do regarding a permanent bridge, and that is to stand back and let tho company, commissioners and time solve the problem." Mr. W. N. M.Candlish brings us from the (arm of J. L. Brown of Humphrey precinct, a fine sample of German inillett from a two-acre field. It grew six feot in one month and twenty-six davs. Mr. Brown was cutting it with a harvester, and binding it. Some heads measure seven and a half inches long. A lady writes to us concerning the organization of a county society in furtherance of the Woman's sun", rage amendment to the constitution, to be voted upon next year. Such organizations are being completed in many counties of the Slate, nota bly in the south Platte region, and they seem to be doing good work. There will probably be no organized opposition. The Union Pacific railway, dur ing the Nebraska State Fair, will give the following rates to Omaha and return, including admission to the grounds, during the Fair. From Columbus aud Schuyler $2.75. From Duucan, Clark's, Silver Creek, Al bion, St. Edwards, Genoa, Norfolk, Munson, Madison, HumphreyyPlatte Centre and Lost Creek $:.")0. Tick ets good three days. Two fine Jersey cows passed through the city Monday morning to the farm of P. D. Smith of Roone county. This gentleman is a sou of the late Adam Smith, and evidences the possession of those qualities which made him an excellent busi ness man and a public spirited citi zen. Mr. Smith has a number of head of fine stock, as well as some novelties in that line. Dr. Hoehen says that two young men were racing their horses Satur day last along the street in front of his house, frightening a horse which his daughter Amy was driving to a buggy, so that her life and that of three little children was greatly endangered. They were all saved by the pluck aud coolness of Miss Hoehen as wo I as the timely assist ance of Mr. V. II. Dyer. Thos. Cantwell, employed with L. Kuhue, Silver Creek, met with a serious accident Thursday last. He kept on au express car while it was in motion, until he saw that he was about to be mashed against a coal shed, when he jumped, his foot be ing caught somehow in the ladder of the car, causing a comminuted tracturc of the leg. Dr. Boucsteel was called and dressed the wound. It is a very common thing in Columbus of late to 6ee a ruuaway team, and too fast driving. We have had complaint after complaint en tered here, but those who do so should remember that we are not a court of justice, empowered to take testimony and impose fines for the violation of law, neither is it the function of a newspaper to make personal accusations in such cases. The parties iujured should do that before the proper authorities. The Butler Couuty Press re ports the arrest of Michael Gray of Ulysses, ou a charge of assault with intent to kill "Wm. Dobson. There is an old feud between the men. Gray went home and got his pistol and attempted te hoot Dobaon, but was prevented. Also the death of David Owens, an old settler of But 1 c county, sixty years of age.whose death was caused by the kick of a colt. J. N. Reynolds, Esq., of Fuller ton, Nance Co., was in the city Monday on his way to Omaha, to confer with the U. P. authorities concerning the exteimion of their branch road to Fullerton. lie says it seems natural to be in Columbus. The railroad companies are this year doing their full share for tho devel opment of the country. In this di rection lies their interest as well as that of the public. Let the good work go forward. Work begun Monday morning last on the re-construction of the Platte bridge, under the supervision of County Commissioner John Wise, who will put the work through as rapidly and as well as it can be done. With no back-set our south-side friends may reasonably expect to cross about two weeks from to-day. We may say in this connection that ColumbuB will be far aheaJ of some of her neighbors who lost their bridges during the flood. The provident farmer will re member that winter came upon us last year the middle ot October, and there was no let-up until the middle of March. Make hay fast while the sun shines and before the frosts come. We may have another season like the last. A vast amount of hay has already been put up in Nebraska, but the teams should be pushed right forward for tho next Bixty or ninety days, and every effort made to secure all there is. If not needed for home consumption, it will pay to ship. The Driving Park Association have purchased 40 acres of laud near Flynu's brick yard, paying $000. They will fence 25 acres of it, within which they will have the best half mile track iu this s'ection of country, and a floral hall that will be an honor to the enterprise of the asso ciation. Cash premiums will be paid, without doubt or discount. As the fair is to be held Oct. 1th to 7th inclusive, we shall have more to say again ; but get ready, bring some thing to exhibit aud see that your entire family have a time for enjoy ment at the fair. 'rKACUl'KS' laSTITI'TI-Ii To llic TeaelierH of IMntte. Co. The Annual Normal Institute will begin Monday, August 22d, 1881, and continue for a term of two weeks. All those who expect to teach iu the county arc requested to attend. During the last two days examinations will be held for both county aud state certificates. Dur ing a portion of the term, Hon. W. Y. W. Jones, State Sup't, will be present and take part in the exer cises. J. E. Mo.vcrif.f, Co. Sup't. It has been suggested to us that the papers of the city should pay a srood deal more attention to the markets than they have heretofore done, especially the stock and grain markets, but more especially the latter. It seems that as much as ten cents a bushel has been paid by some of our dealers, above the price as quoted by some of the papers. This ought not to be. The news papers should have enterprise enough to keep up with the times; tho markets are among the most important facts that the papers can give, and to be of value they must be a true and accurate index of prices for commodities exchanged here. Certainly, the newspaper that does not give the highest market price actually paid for wheat, corn, oats, hogs, cattle, bhtter, eggs, &c, is doing no small injury to the busi ness interests of the city, and should cease to do so. Sel f-interest, if noth ing else, would dictate this course, and wo hope to see, henceforward, all the Columbus paperB vie with each other iu furthering the mate rial interests of the city iu this, as well as in all other respects. Schuyler IVote. A Kansas doctor's manuscript con tains such words as "small paux," "8karlit fcaver" and "rumatie," aud yet he charges $2 for looking at a sick man's tongue. "We notice the steam hay engine is on deck again in this vicinity .for another season's work. There is nothing like it. Hay being a chief staple of this country, we are pleased to see the hay business boom. Another child of the late widow Kelly has fallen a victim to the diph thretic croup, having died at the house of the widow Hawe, Shell Creek Precinct, on Monday last. The victim in this instance was a boy 9 years old. We are informed that owing to au insufficiency of bauds the county bridges will not be replaced before late in the fall. The demand for hands competent to build bridges is so urgent everywhere that it is im possible to obtain the help it is not in the country. ' The three-year-old child named Dworak, injured by a reaper in Shell Creek Precinct, at the begin ning of harvest mention of which waB made in the Stm died Mon day. But the parents say it died from dysentery with which it was overtaken. Schuyler Stm. The Diamond Field. Saturday afternoon last the B. & M. Club of Omaha and the Koy stones of this city met on grounds near Judge Higgins's residence in thi eastern part of the city, aud en gaged in 3 very interesting game of base ball. Both uines were very tastily dressed in the uniform of their clubs, and are to be commend ed for their neat, trim and tidy ap pearance. Our nine are unstinted in their praise of the gentlemanly brethren who subdued them so handsomely. An examination of the score, which we give below, showa that the seveuteen runs wee all made on the 1st, 3d and 4th in nings, the only run of the Keystones being on the 1st, and three for the B & M's. on the 3d and thirteen on the 4th. In seven innings the B. & M's. were whitewashed, in eight the Keystones. Tho fourth inning was a mountain with only one spur on the hither side, and a precipice be yond ; three runs were made on a lost ball. The B. & M's. seemed to have gotten the "twist" on Kavan augh's balls, and kept knocking them right along. After this inning a change was made on the part of the Keystones, among the most import ant of which were Landers as pitch er and Hudson as first-base, after which neither side scored any. It is duo to Mr. Kavanaugh to say that a matter outside of the game alto gether, occurring about this time, attracted, not only his attention, but that of the whole nine, diverting them somewhat from the game. The occasion was graced by the presence of a large number of spec tators, among them not a few ladies, and enlivened by straius of excellent music from the Columbus Cornet Band. We are informed that in either two or six weeks it is expected that the Keystones will pay the B. & M's. a visit at their grounds in Omaha. The score, given below, needs a little interprcpatiou to the uninitiat ed, as follows: It, runs made; P.
