Keating Bros, shipped seven car
loads of fat steers Monday to Chicago.
These are, of course, early fed, which
is coming to be recognized as the most
profitable. Many of the heavy deal
ers of the state summer-feed and fall
fatten, thus saving a great deal of hay
cutting, and winter work.
John Harr and his mother Mrs.
B. E. Parker, have purchased of H. C.
Russell, of Schuyler, his farm, cattle,
horses, hogs, &c. There are 200 acres
of the farm, 2 miles sonthwest of
Schuyler, a good location for stock.
The price paid was $5,000. The fam
ily left Monday for their new home.
The Kendalls played last week io
good houses. They skipped Schuy
ler, for which place they had engaged,
and have been notified that they will
have the hall there to pay for, all the
same. We guess they made enough
extra here to do that profitably, but
we sympathise with Schuyler in miss
ing a treat.
The citizens of North Platte have
petitioned the TJ. P. R. R. authorities
to allow them to have a second coal
dealer. Columbus has always been
favored by having a good man for coal
dealer, but what a commentary upon
our business life, is the simple fact of
such a petition as that of 'the North
Platte citizeus !
The Columbus Creamery is now
under the management of W. T. Rans
dell. The first six months of the in
stitution showed that the investment
was a profitable one. The product
disposed of bore a good business
ratio to the capital invested in build
ings, &c , unlike many creameries that
have been started in the west.
Henry M. Winslow of Illinois,
last week purchased the Phil. Cain
farm, through Speice& North, agents.
This is the rich piece of land north
west of the city formerly owned by
J. B. Senecal. We are informed that
Mr. Winslow intends to make a spec
ialty of raising and selling thorough
bred short-shorncattle. It seems to
us that a business of that kind will
pay the investor, in this country
where good cattle are always in de
mand. The elegant residence of C. C.
Burr at Lincoln, this state, was con
sumed the other morning by fire. The
fire started in the southwest corner of
the basement, and was probably dne
to the heating apparatus. Had the
fire department been prompt in get
ting in its work, the fire might have
been extinguished with a trifling loss.
The building was about finished and
cost $35,000. Nothing was saved of
the contents. The insurance will
cover $12,000 or $15,000 only.
The Journal gave its opinion
some time since that there probably
wonld be no more "blizzards" in Ne
braska, that name being applied to
storms of strong northwest winds
with very fine, dry snow, and contin
uing three days and nights, the reason
being that the atmosphere was now
so moist that the snow could not be
dry, and therefore must come in lar
ger flakes than formerly, leaving
interstices through which objects can
be seen. The snow of last week was
not a "blizzard."
The fact that there are immense
importations of eggs to this country
from Europe ought to be enougb to
stimulate that branch of industry to
its utmost. There is, perhaps, no in
investment that pays a larger percent
age, and if Americans would eat less
meat and more eggs they would doubt
less be healthier and wealthier. The
trouble with the chicken business in
this country is that it is not made a
business of. The farmer, as a rule,
pays no particular attention to them
they can roost where they will, and
get their living as they may.
Ed. Jouhnax.: Have yoa beard
anything about a change of PWt Mas
ters at this office ? Can you give any
information on the -ubject? Is this
what is called a Presidential office?
If a change is going to be made,
vonid it not be well enough lor a
tsm-js meeting to b called, and -How
he patrons of the office t have some
thii -x to say about who shall fill it?
Would not" that be a democratic way
of doins it? Also the location of the
office is a matter of no small import
ance to our people.
Something has been said about
clandestine appointments of the past;
it is to be hoped that an appointment
on petition of a select few, will never
re-occur in this citv. There is no
officer, Federal, State, Connty or Pre
cinct, who deals mire extensively
with the people, than Post Master; let
him therefore be of the people, and
with the people. A. B.
In answer we would say that we
have heard there are rumor? afloat
that two certain gentlemen have each
been promised the postmastership.
Whether the rumors have a solid
foundation of fact, we know not,
neither do we know whether the
authority alleged to have promised
the position, has it at hi? command.
In these matters the assumption of
politician is that the offices are theirs
for the purpose of "rewarding" their
political "strikers" for "work'' done
or "influence," (moral influence of
course), exerted in their behalf.
The office here is classed as presi
dential, that is, the appointment is
ostensibly made by the president and
confirmed by the Senate. It is under
stood, however, that, as a rule the
president appoints such as are recom
mended by the congressional delega
tion, and we believe it has been cus
tomary for these officials to parcel the
offices of the state among themselves.
If there is such a division in Nebraska,
we are not advised as to the boundary
lines, so to speak.
The Journal has always been
favorable to making all offices (as far
as practicable) elective by the people,
and sees no just reason (except cus
tom) why the post-masterships should
be an exception. Perhaps a greater
source of trouble than the selection of
the officer, is the selection of the loca
tion of the office. Like many other
matters for the public to determine it
is a question of conflicting interests,
in which, usually, each man thinks
his judgment of what is right, is about
what the interests of the general pub
W. T. Ransdell went to the Na
tional Union Dairy Fair at Milwaukee
last week. It opened on Wednesday.
One exhibitor has constructed a very
tasty cabin of cheese of various sizes,
another a grotto, and another an
obelisk of imposing size. Nearly ev
ery state has an exhibit. Iowa leads
for entries of butter. Some fine Jer
seys, Devons and Holsteins are ex
hibited in the live stock department.
Some of the mottoes iu the hall are
striking: "A filthy man, with filthy
bands, milking a filthy cow in a filthy
athir w tjithv milk-pail is the
"We live in an
age of progress; the practice and
modes in dairying advance with the
times." "Improvement in quality is
the best guarantee of future profits.''
"The growth of the community de
pends almost entirely upon the intel
ligent efforts of its people.'' "Make
good butter and cheese and there will
be no trouble about selling it." "If a
man goes into dairying, he goes into
it more and more."' "A man must
have the rich milk of human kindness
in him to properly care for a cow."
"Full cream cheese is the only honest
product of pure milk." "You can't
cheat the cow and escape cheating
yourself." "The making of butter and
cheese is no suitable calling for an
unthinking man it demands brains."
We do not remember hearing of
any case of trichina in Nebraska but
the one recorded below, noted by the
Brownville Republican. The only
safe precaution against this most
dreadful disease is to thoroughly cook
the pork before you eat it, and every
body should know this, in the land
where pork is the meat of the people :
We learn from a reliable source that
a boy of Lloyd Mason's died last
Wednesday of trichina, and that two
other children are in a precarious
condition and liable to die at any
momeut. A small piece of the pork
was placed under a strong magnify
ing glass which brought to light the
fact that four thousand of the para
sites were buried in its flesh to the
square inch. Atter such a revelation
as this surely our citizens, will be
doubly caretul in preparing the festive
hog for the table. The whole county
will sympathize with Mr. Ma.on and
hope tor the speedy recovery of him
self and family.
By the courtesy of the state offi
cers the new wing of the capitol will

by a public reception to the people of
the state by the Pleasant Hour Club

would be pleased to have all attend
that can possibly do so. Reduced
fare has been secured on the B. & M.
R. R. from all points as follows : To
parties of ten or more, one and one
fourth fare for round trip. Parties of
twenty-five or more, one fare, and
parties of fifty or more, three-fourths
of one fare for the round trip. The
west wing will be used for reception,
the different rooms being opened to
visitors. The hall of the east wing
will be opened for dancing. No pains
will be spared to make the occasion
an enjoyable one to aH.
