the celebrated Remenyi will be in
this city Monday, April 23d, and, as
sisted by H. Louise Warner, soprano,
Mr. Edmond De Celle, tenor, and
Mr. Adolph Bauer, pianist, will give
one of his never-to-be-forgotten en
tertainments. The press everywhere
speaks in the highest praise of Rem
enyi. The N. Y. Herald eays: "He
is master of his instrument. It glows,
and burns, and flames under his mas
ter hand." The N. Y. Telegram:
"One of the few in whom the sacred
fire has been lighted, and in whom it
has reached the fullness of its blaze."
The London Times: "He is absolute
ly unsurpassable." Remenyi is the
most famous living violinist.
A Bnddea Call.
Charles Asher, son-in-law of Joseph
Gardner, who lived four miles east of
Silver Creek, while burning some old
grass on one of his fields, Monday,
fell down near the fire. Geo. Jones,
who was working near by, saw him
fall, and as soon as he could tie his
team, and get to Mr. Asher, did so,
but found him dead ; his pants legs
were afire, and while the boy dragged
the man along to get him out of the
fire, the stubble caught fire after him,
making matters worse ; the boy then
tried to whip out the fire with a sack,
but notwithstanding bis greatest
efforts all the clothing of the man, ex
cept a piece of the shirt collar and
boots, was burned off him, and his
body fearfully scorched. The boy's
hands were badly blistered.
Mr. Asher bad for the last three
years been subject to fainting- spells
caused by heart disease, aod had, on
Monday forenoon, been prostrated by
one of these. Whether he had been
suddenly struck down by the disease,
or whether the Inhalation of flame had
killed him is not known, probably

Last Friday morning onr commu

burglars bad been at work at Platte
Center the night before and secured a
thousand dollars the amount de

down, and $185 was ascertained to be
the sum extracted by the thieves. We

A three-eighths inch hole was drill
ed into the safe at the office of North

Nothing was stolen except the money.
The drill had beea taken from Bloe
dorn's blacksmith shop. A brace ia
the office where the safe was had evi
deatly beea nted. A team of horses
bad been let loose, aad a pair of bri
dles taken, doabtless to create the
impression that the barglars had rode
off. The impression is, from the man
ner in which the job was executed,
that it was the work of non-professionals,
and that the burglar or bar
glars are yet ia Platte Center. An

Written for the Journal.
Well, it isn't much of a story,
But I thought it over to-day
As I listened to that sermen:
A powerful sermon you say?
I thought so, but maybe I'm partial.
You're a stranger, sir, and don't know
That the preacher you heard this morning
Is my boy, my oldest, my Joe.
Twas a dark, dreary night in November,
Tho' inside 'twas all warm and bright,
And the children bad played by the fire,
Till I tucked them up snugly for the
And William dozed over his paper.
The warmth made him sleepy, he said,
So he wound up the clock slow and reg'lar
And started off early for bed..
I had worked hard all day and was tired,
But didn't feel ready to go,
So I thought I would finish my mending,
And keep up the fire for Joe.
I mended, and listened, and waited,
With a prayer in my heart for ay child,
or joe waa so Kina ana good-neartea,
But the neighbors said he was wild.
I mended, and listened, and waited;
The clock ticked the hours away
And spitefully rung out reminders
Of the time and now late Joe did stay;
Only fire minutes till midnight!
My heart with fear almost stood still,
I urew back t e window curtain
And placed the lamp on the eill.
utside, it was dark as a pocket
The light shone out full and clear,
For I thought, if he only sees it,
He will know I'm waiting here.
Then I made some nice fresh coffee
And got the bread ready to toast
And some of Joe's favorite cookies
And some bits that were left from the
You may think it is strange I remember
Such trifles through all these long years,
But it comes to me now so clearly,
That night and my anxious fears.
My Joe was uneasy and restless,
Quick-tempered and passionate too
And what in the heat of the moment
Might he reckless, defiantly do!
I watched, and listened, and waited,
Till at last, on jny eager ear,
Fell the welcome sound of footsteps
So slowly drawing near.
At the gate they halted a minute,
My heart felt like a stone;
For what if the worst had happened
My boy could'nt come home alone.
I seemed so long as I waited,
And everything seemed to spin,
When the door swung hastily open
And Joe and three others came Is.
There was pretty Fred Howard.an orphan.
And George, from the houi c on the hill,
And the Deacon's boy, smart, clever
They came in, all sober and still.
Well, I tried to act easy and natural,
And got Fred to toasting the bread
And gave them a cup of hot coffee,
The best in the world, Charlie said.
But Joe said he did'nt feel hungry,
I knew he bad something to say;
So when they had finished their supper
1 started to clear it away.
He said: "I was down at the Syren,
'Twas where I'd no business to be;
But nothing can alter or change It,
I played with that scoundrel, Bill Lee.
We played fair and square, I was winning
Bill suddenly rose to his feet,
And hissed out the words so Insulting,
No wonder you're lucky you cheat.'
I couldn't stand that and I knocked him ;
For a minute I felt like Cain,
But soon the confounded coward
Was up on his pegs again,
But he had bad one lesson,
So' he didn't wait fore more,
But sneaked along shamefacedly
And sidled out the door.
Then all at once I remembered
How long I had been away,
And thought perhaps you were waiting,
As you otten do when I stay:
So I found the bors and we started
And as we came up by the mill
The blessed light from your window
Shone out o'er the long dark hill.
It seemed as if there was one more chance
To do what I knew was right.
And I resolved right then and there
To trv with all my might."
He stopped, his voice all choked with
Poor Fred was sobbing outright,
While Charlie and George looked pale
As if ready for fight.
Well, I never was much at speeching.
But I kissed them with thankful tears,
And said a few words, though broken,
To One who always hears.
I tried to comfort and soothe them,
Then sent them off to bed,
And at last on my own soft pillow
I lay my weary head.
Next morning I remember
1 felt so sick and weak,
Not able to rise or moye about
Too tired to think or speak;
But'twas worth a hundred anxious nights
Or a hundred years of woe
To think that now in God's good way
I bad helped those boys and Joe.
There was many a hard fought battle
And many a victory won
As the noble work was carried on,
Which they that night begun.
Well, it is'nt much of a story.
But, yes, you may write it down
For some bright boy may read it
As he starts to go down town.
And if he will only remember
The ones who watch and wait.
Who watch and wait and pray and weep,
When he stays away too late!

day night to a litter of pigs one of
which had two separate and distinct

General opinion estimates the area
being sown to wheat this spring in
Colfax county is less than in any sea

the farmers aim to sow no more than
will supply them with breadstuff.
