the heartfelt 'sympathy of this com-'
munity and their many friends else
where, in these trying hours of their
sore affliction. One bright, little boy
gone to the Summer Land, and other
precious lives in doubt are enough to
call forth the sympathetic feeling of
every father and mother heart.

When a calf is left to run with
the cow, tho latter is more or less in

havo taken the calf from the cow, and
given it liberal feed and care, find it

time, the cow improves for milking
purposes. Now that milk is so val

in all that the best use be made of the
cows to raise the milk.
A committee has beeu appointed
to wait upon the business men of Co

our citizens, aud it might not be amiss

We are pained to announce the
sudden death of Master Frankie Bur

Burgess, which occurred Saturday
morning at 6 o'clock. The funeral
services occurred at 2 o'clock Sunday
afternoon from the residence. Frankie
was a general favorite throughout the
city, and his pleasant aud happy voice
will be sadly missed by many. His
untimely taking off is attributed to

Our correspondent from Crcston
speaks of the result of the recent
teachers' examination at Humphrey
being not quite so bad as he had re
ported. He probably means that
more persons passed the examination
than he, at first, reported. The Jour
nal does not know the merits of
applicants in .this instance, not kuow
ing who they were at all, but is de
cidedly in favor of that system of
management that secures good teach
ers for each and every cluster of
pupils in the county. The best su
perintending work is done, when the
license to teach is placed with a thoroughly-equipped
teacher, and Sup't
Moncrief has, we think, struck tho
right gait. Let it be understood that
it will require good ability and high
character to teach a Platte county
school, and our school work will go
on satisfactorily to the people. It is,
after all, the greatest work of life, for
if anything is permanent, it is what
we learn ; if anything of life is valua
ble, it certainly is progress in knowl
edge, and in the ability to acquire
knowledge. Fix well the habit of
independent thought in' the child and
energize it with a love of truth, and

Sunday laBjt waJ3an exceedingly
Warm day for the time or year. All
day long there was. a strong, warm
wind from the south and southwest,
aud, having been dry for some time,
the dust flew with a vengeance; it
was a day long to be remembered by
those who never before experienced
anything of the kind, and if there
were many such days in the Nebraska
year, the opinion of the average
weather would be rated very low,
indeed. But all things mundane have
an end, and this fact was quickly and
very effectively set forth near the
close of the day. The storm clouds
chased each other for a while,' the sky
was soon overcast, the ominous howl
of the wind began . and soon the
storm of rain and hail came on in
mad "fury! Tall, strong trees bent
beneath the gale.; leaves and twigs of
trees were knocked off; early vegeta
bles, just peeping out of the ground,
were mashed by the white stones that
fell thick, fat and hard; window
lights were cracked and crushed un
der the heavy blows of the pelting
hail ; rooms were flooded by the rain,
which poured iu at every opening on
the south aud west; little children,
frightened beyond the necessities of
the occasion, embraced, and bade
good-bye, expressing a hope to see
each other in the better world; the
beasts of the field and the fowls of .the
farm-yard, sought what protection J
they could find in the direction of the
storm, for to go against it was impos
sible ; the mad elements had their own
way for a few minutes, and directly
the unclouded sun in the west shone
forth, aud there were the old, upper
clouds in their place, the same as if
nothing bad happened.
The course of the storm was from
southwest to northeast, aud does not
appear to have taken a swath more
than two miles wide at any ono place.
While there was wind, rain and some
hail in Columbus, no window lights
were broken, but two miles north and
west we gather the following inci
dents : At Wm. Grant's, a stable un
roofed and window glass on the south
and west sides of the house broken ;
at II. W. Winslow's (the Phil. Cain
farm) 44 lights broken, the foliage of
trees whipped off; at Franklin Stull's
(the M. Welch farm) a new barn
mashed down ; at Wm. Sullivan's all
the lights in the south and west sides
of the dwelling broken ; at Pleyte's
64 lights of glass; at Norval's 32; at
Turner's 12; at Keating's 35, and
Thomas's old straw sheds scattered
around, and 11 old hens, 2 turkeys
and a general assortment of young
chickens killed ; here Jos. Flynn, who
tried to get the cattle to shelter, had
his face bruised to bloodiness by the

About 10 o'clock Wednesday night
of last week the cry ot fire brought
tit nearly every one in our thriving
town to witness what terminated in a
great loss to not ouly individuals of
private losses but to the community
in general. Newell South's hardware
store, occupied by him also as a dwell
ing was discovered to be on fire in the
second story. Neighbors assembled
quickly, yet the ?ork of extinguish
ing the flames waB impossible, as a
trong northwest wind blew the
smoke and, fire quickly in the build
ing; the work of removing then com
menced ; many things were taken out,
to be burned afterward as they caught
fire and could not be saved. The fire
also extended to Jacob Steflis's hotel ;
they removed their furniture, but the
building was lost. Jacob is not at all
disheartened, although his insurance
does not cover his loss, which is abont
$3,000; his insurance is, however,
$2,300, and he in one day replaced him
a shelter and saloon, and is doing a
thriving business. Not so lucky was
MrvNewell South, as he by hard Jabor
and careful saving accumulated a
nice, well filled store and had in it all
that he possessed and in the hasty
work of the fire he was not allowed
to save himself even a change of
shirts, and without a hat even (as be
had retired for the night) ; he did all
that man could do to save himself,
wife and child first, and then was pot
willing to leave the rooms until com
pelled to by friends; he removed
powder, cartridges, &c, saved his
notes and books, lost the day's sales
of about $90 in currency left in the
money drawer; lost nearly all his
household furniture, including bed
clothes, bedding and clothes of him
self, wife aud child, on which he bad
no insurance at all. His total loss
will exceed $5,500. His insurauce is
$2,500. Cause of fire unknown.
South is a plucky man and we hope
he will not leave us but will build and
try it again, which be says he will do
if his many friends will be prompt in
assisting brm in his downfall.
