A. McPherson met with what
might hsve been quite a serioas acci
dent one day last week. He was re
turning from Central City, where he
had been attending court, and when
coming through what is known as the
sand-hills this side of Mr. Starrett's
place, his horse took fright at a pass
ing train of cars and jumped into a
deep ditch, which threw the horse and
also threw Mr. M. on the ground with
such force as to almost knock the
wind out of him. He was unable to
do anything for several days. Cen

"We see by a paper from Kanka
kee, 111., our old home, that a great
many are coming from that section of
country to Nebraska. The most noted
is Henry Winslow, of the firm of A.
M. Winslow'5 Sous, who have a na
tional reputation as short-horn breed
ers, who comes to Platte county to
open up a stock farm. 'In speaking of
the Winslows the Gazette says : 'Their
location iu Kankakee six years ago
has been a grand thing for us. All
over the county can be seen the re
sults of their labors in the improve
ment of our stock.'" We clip the
above from the Madison Chronicle,
and are glad to add that Platte county
and Nebraska have room, and right
hearty welcome for thousands more
John Tannahill's business has
grown to pretty large proportions
since he came to Columbu?, and he
now has one of ihe finest properties
in the State, in his line. On inquiry
of him we find that he will this year
have about forty acres under cultiva
tion, all fine work, raising vegetables
and seeds, and will run two vegetable
wagons during the season. He has
recently purchased thirty acres of
land, and has rented the Dr. Heintz's
house with six acres. His green
house, where flowers are propagated
and grown, is a model of neatness
and beauty. If is 25x50 feet, and
is heated by a furnace which throws
hot water through 500 feet of four
inch pipe. The green house is com
pletely packed with flowering plants
of many varieties. John has achieved
success, because he richly deserved it.
We notice that nearly all our Ne
braska exchanges are talking up the
creamery business for their special
localities, which is a good thing to
do. There is one mistake, however,
that is very apt to be made by parties
who take stock in an undertaking of
that kind, which is to erect buildings
that are too costly. The object con
tinually held in the view of stock
holders and managers Bhould be, the
making a good interest on the in
vestment, and this cannot be done, if
the building committee is extravagant.
We have heard of several just such
ventures, but Nebraska men have no
margin of funds to spare in that way.
It will not do to look entirely upon
the idea of building up a town. It
will be fouud in the end that that
town is best built which is the accu
mulation of successful business enter
prises, and the motive power in start
ing these ehonld be a very affirmative
answer to the question, Will it pay ?
W. H. Motter, formerly a land
agent at Genoa, was arrested last
Tuesday, March 27th, on two separate
charges, on the affidavits of Ben. Mar
tenson and Peter Johnson, for having
sold to Martenson's wife and Peter
Johnson, each, an eighty acre tract of
land, and receiving money therefor,
and having no title thereto. War
rants were issued by Justice Cook,
and arrest made by Deputy-Sheriff
Davis. The defendant was brought
into court for examination, when the
complaints were read to him. The
prisoner asked for an adjournment of
the cases, for ten days, which, by con
sent, was granted, on his giving ap
proved bonds in each case in the sum
of $500. A hearing will be had April
6th. Latee Since writing the above
another warrant is out for W.H. Mot
ter. He has '-skipped" the town, leav
ing his bondsmen in the first cases
without the promised indemnity, and
the sheriff and possee are after him.
The third charge is for embezzlement
of over 600. Genoa Leader. I

We cannot impress too strongly
upon the minds of those of our read
ers who are invalids, the importance
of consulting Dr. Fishblatt, the cele
brated physician, whoBe advertise
ment will be found in another col
umn. He has certainly had the most
remarkable snecess in curing disease,
especially difficult cases that have
been entirely abandoned by other
physicians. The Des Moines and
Omaha papers all speak in terms of
highest praise, and the Doctor has
testimonials without number from
people whom he has cured. G. M.
Squires of Hnmboldt, Neb., who was
so prostrated with rheumatism that
he had to give up his farm, writes : j
" " After trying numerous i
doctors without receiving any relief, I
I submitted to your treatment abont 1
two months ago. I am happy to say
that I am now nearly well and con- j
sider you have performed on me a j
wonderful cure. I have gained eight j
pounds and am now able to attend to
my work without any inconvenience.7

Humphrey, March 17th, '83.
To the Co. Commissioners of Platte
I, as a tax-payer and many others
concerned, want to know why Platte
county is not able to afford us a decent
road to trade at Humphrey. No later
than this evening I aaw four teams
with not over two hundred feet of
lumber stuck fast in the slough ; men
up to their knees in mud, and horses
down trying to pull through. The
place I have reference to is the corner
of Section 21. I got fast there myself
with 40 bushels of shelled corn. The
people in Humphrey precinct are
howling about it am! -aj they will
have to haul their produce to some
other town if this is not remedied
immediately. 1 put two bridges in on
that road last year which were badly
needed, and the people are well sat
isfied with. You as a body were
elected by the people and are endow
ed with good judgment. It is not my
place or my business to offer any
opinions in this matter, bnt I think if
things were equalized and a little more
expended on the precincts in making
good roads and curtailing a little of
the expences contracted in Columbus
and vicinity, we as tax-payers would
be better pleased with the result.
"i ours respectfully,
There was no road tar for '82, only
a poll-tax the Co. Commissioners are
not above the law, they must conform
to the law. Before '32 there was a
two-mills tax for road purposes.
As to the idea that Columbus pre
cinct gets more than her share of im
provements i which seems to be enter
tained by more than one) we are
informed that the reverse is the case.
It must be remembered that this pre
cinct pays now about four-elevenths
of the taxes ot the entire county, and
that heretofore the proportion has
been still greater.
Lively times now.

On Monday evening March 2G, the
Humphrey Maennerchor held a social
hop in the hall ; having nice weather
they drew out a large crowd, sold
dancing tickets to the amount of $20.50
to people mostly from the country.
The ball is a new building just put

juveniles awake, as they kept np the
dance for nearly all of the week.
The Methodists held a quarterly
meeting at the school-house last Sat
urday evening and Sunday morning;
notwithstanding the snow and mud
the house was nearly filled. After
communion service, we listened to a
very interesting sermon ably preach

ised to send some one here soon to

Shell Creek Alliance, No. 467, met

March 26, at the usual time, with a
large attendance, the Grand Prairie

resignation of F. M. Redenbangb,
secretary, was accepted, and F. P.
Hoffman chosen -to fill the vacancy.

by Max Gottbirg and J. S. Freeman,
which were quite amusing.

"There is nothing succeeds like suc
0683," and this truism is very often
strongly exemplified. We know of
no more striking instance than in the
case of Dr. Fishblatt. This celebrated
physician had hi? headquarters at Des
Moine.a for many years, and through
out Iowa he can point to a multitude I
I of almost miraculous cures. Only a
few months ago he removed to Oms
i ha, and the same phenomenal success
t has followed him. He is doing the
same good healing work in Nebraska
that marked his residence in Iowa.
