Donayin's Original Tennessec
ans gave an entertainment at the

and were greeted by a full house.

House Monday afternoon as inter

to the business man who is called
away from his work, but it is a very
important part of the duty of good
citizens to help iu the just execution
of the laws.
A Colfax county farmer stated
to us on Friday last that our dealers
were paying five cents a bushel more
for corn than those of Schuyler,
while hogs were selling here at
$5.35 a hundred, and there at 15.10.
Whatever the comparativo " prices
may have been on Friday last, it
cannot hut be admitted that a num
ber of intelligent, Colfax county
farmers havo been marketing here
their hogs tho past week.
The Columbus Fire Department
ought to havo a substantial benefit
from tho city. Their numbor is

their services should have that sub
stantial, aud business-like recogni
tion that they deserve. We hope an
occasiou may soou offer to tender it.
At a recent meeting of the city
board of education some important
changes were mado in the schools.
The board decided in favor of a
high school department which open

at its head. He is a most excellent
teacher, and the school under his
charge will flourish admirably. Mrs.
Annie Coolidge, Miss Annie Gilbert

One night recently a fire was
noticed alongside of Dr. Hoehen's
barn, evidently just kindled, and,
from all appearances, by an incen
diary. It was very fortunac, for
that evening at least, that a member
of the household, with her compan
ion, returned home late from a ball,
and just in time to prevent what
might have proved a fearful fire. In
our opinion no punishment would
be too severe for such a crime, be
cause with the destruction of prop
erty, thero is always a possibility of
the loss of life.
Mrs. F. J. Stetson gave one of
her delightful entertainments at tho
Congregational church Saturday
evening, to a very appreciative au
dience. She has rare ability as a
dramatic reader, as is evidenced by
the fact that her hearers retain thoir
interest, from first to last, of a two
hours entertainment. Considering
that intellectual enjoyments are
helnful of all that is good, this tal
ented ladv. in tho exercise of herl
genius, may well be congratulated
upon the life of great usefulness that
lies before her.
S. C. Smith, Esq., reports land
business lively the past week. Some I
of the transactions at his office were

J. C. Elliott was in the city
several dayB last week. He haa re
cently been in Chicago and St.Louis,
preparing to establish himself in
business at Omaha. A few years
ago bo began in Columbus, on a
small scale, and by hiB integrity,
strict attention to business, and
thorough knowledge of all the do-4
tails of his work, as well as his
reasonable prices and accommodat
ing spirit, he has flourished as a vine
on a sunny slope. Wo commend
him and his father, Jno. Elliott (who
enters into partnership with him iu
Omaha) to the good opinion of the
citizens of Nebraska's metropolis. 1
The preliminary examination of
Edmund Grant, charged with the
murder of Richard Dress, on tho 3d
inst. occupied last Friday, Saturday
and part of Monday before Judge
Higgins, and resulted in Grant's
being held to bail iu the Bum of $600
for manslaughter, at the next term
of tho District Court. Bail wasfur
nished by his father. The court in
timated in his decision that be
found, as a matter of fact, that the
crime resulted from a high degree of
negligeuce iu the use of fire arms.
The punishment for such offences is

A PleuMurc to IhhjmjcI, and
well Worthy of Record.
The past fall has developed so
many public-spirited citizens, and so
many far-reaching enterprises in our
rapidly growing city, that we have
hardly been able to keep pace with
the march of improvement. We
wore very forcibly reminded of this,
as we dropped into Becher & Price's
office yesterday, and inspected their
new set of Abstract Books, now
The complete set consists of six,
eight-quire, threo six-quire, and two
four-quire volumes, manufactured of
tho very heaviest and best quality of
calendered paper to be procured, and
very firmly as well as elegantly
bound, and were manufactured ex
pressly for the firm. Thoy are com
pletely and elegantly written up and
contain in their respective volumes,
a full and accurate abstract of all
deeds, mortgages, powers of attor
ney, etc., etc., tiled or on record in
tho clerk's office of this county, also
a full and accurate abstract of tho
District Court, and tho Probate aud
County Court records of this county.
Our attention was particularly at
tracted to an Index Book and a ref
erence Book, which readily and con
veniently give a perfect synopsis of
The value of this work is simply
inestimable, In more phases than one.
If any accident should befall our
county or court records they would
be as standard authority as the orig
inal record itself. If we are pur
chasing or selling property, we can
quickly and easily obtain an authen
tic record of title, right here in the
business center of the city, without
a mile or less journoy to the court
house, aud you can drop in at any
time, early in tho morning, at noon,
or in tho evening, they are always
there. We predict for this energetic
firm a thousand-fold return for thoir
iuvesttnent. We can hardly close
without a fow words of commenda
tion of the clerical work which was
performod entirely by Will. E. Rob
inson, Esq., of Greenville, III., a gen
tleman of large experienco in this
branch of business. Mr. Robinson
commenced this work on tho morn
ing of (he 12th of May last, and bas
labored almost incessantly up to the
present timo. Ho is an expert pen
mau, as bis work amply testifies, and
probably has fow equals in Abstract
work. We only"' marvel that he has
accomplished so much in so short a
timo. Will, has made hosts of
friends during hiB stay among us,
who will regret his departure to the
land of "Suckers."
Wo say to all our readers, a simple
inspection will more than verify
what we havo here chronicled, and
which wo could profitably enlarge
upon, if our space would justify.

Editor of the Times:! have been
watching the correspondence in your
paper for the past few weeks with
much interest. Having been in the
practice of medicine for many years,
I have learned to have no confidence
in tho many proprietary medicines
which are on the market aud it was
through the excellent recommenda
tion given by Dr. Bates, and the
knowledge I had of his veracity aud
ability as a physician that over led
me to lay aside my long existing
prejudice, to try.the only wonderful
remedy, named Kendall's Spavin
Cure which I find so many of your
readers havo also found to be so
valuable. Rheumatism has afflicted
me for years, and with all the skill
I have professed to have in treating
others I found myself unable to do
anything to euro myself entirely.
After suffering for years tho difficul
ty became located in my hip and
nothing that I could do seemed af
fect it until I began to use Kendall's
Spavin Cure, which has cured mo
completely. In all my experience
as a physician I have never been
able to make any compound which
penetrates so thoroughly and wprks
so admirably in removing old stand
ing ailments, and at the same time
hardly produce any irritation of the
skin. It has done such wonders
with me that I have tho utmost con
fidence in its efficacy, and can rec
ommend it with the confidence that
the proprietors do not claim too
much for it. Respectfully,
J. R Porter, M.D. .

Of all institutions, the newspa
per must livo nearest the people, in
their wants and purposes. It must,
with more or less accuracy and
earnestness, record these wantB and
further, these purposes, or cease to
exist as a social force. The papers
that ride hobbies and those that are
organs of a cliquo are comparatively
short-lived and feeble, because tho
central idea of their existence Is not
in unison with tho community in
which they try to live. During old
slavery times a newspaper proprie
tor of New York was threatened
with the loss of the patronage or' the
South if ho didn't recant his anti
slavery sentiments. This was tlio't
by his interviewers to be a very
strong "argument," but his reply
was so quick, crisp, truthful, crush
ing and surprising to tho haughty
and insolent southrons that it has
become memorable: "Take away
your patronage aa quick as you like.
Wo get more money for tho adver
tisemonts of the chamber maids of
Now York City than from all the
slave states put together."
A Pleasant Gathering:.
On Saturday evening, December
10th, a pleasant, sociable time was
enjoyed at the residence of Mr. JJ
E. North on 14th street. The mem
bers of the Coruot Band had been
invited thore aud at about ten o'clock
woro asked to -take seats in tho
spacious dining - room' before a
tablo well laden with all the good
and substantial, things that this
market affords. After doing the
excollcnt supper ample justice, tho
party again took seats In the parlor
whero they enjoyed two selections
of music with piano accompaniment
from Miss Rose North,who rendered
them in her usual, artistic manner;
also ono from O. C. Shannon of the
Band, and ono from L. H. North,
entitled "Grandfather Ben," which
more than pleased the party. At a
late hour tho membors of the Band
took leave, voting thanks to J. E.
North and family for their hos
pitality. City Council.
At their meeting last week, cros

of the A. & N. and the U. P., on 'A'

An ordinauce was introduced,

Mr. Spencer of Butler county
has mado during the season twelve
hundred and twenty-five gallons of
sorghum syrup, and of a good qual
ity, too, as we can testify. He has
had no trouble in selling what bo
has made, and could readily dispose
of threo times as much at fifty cents
a gallon. He has no doubt that a
good quality of sugar can be made
from the syrup, and is now experi
menting with some in a way that
promises success. If this can be
done as readily and cheaply as Mr.
Spencer's process implies, Nebraska
farmers need seek no further for
their "sweetening," as sorghum can
bo raised hero as cheap as corn can,
of excellent quality, and in surpris
ing quantity. Mr. Spencer tells us
that he has known ten barrels of
syrup as tho product of one acre.
