The man or company who will
venture the investment of money in
the wholesale business of groceries
and dry goods in Columbus, will, we
predict, receive large returns from
such investment. There are a great
many towns, villages and country
stores within trading distance of Co
lumbus that would give their custom
and induce others to deal at this
point The right men to conduct a
wholesale business of the kinds men
tioned, would in a short time build up
a large and profitable trade, and one
that for many years to come could be
A business man asks us why he
should have his printing done at home,
when he can send it away and get it
done at lower prices. We answer the
question because occasionally there
comes along a runner from a house
away east somewhere carrying sever
al lines of goods, and also taking
orders for job printing. Often tbe
low-priced printing Is used as a bait
to sell high-priced wares ; or samples
are shown that are not duplicated
when the printed matter comes; or
(as we have known) the 1,000 cards
ordered turn out to be only half so
many ; or, the order is given in large
quantities and no cheaper than your
local printer would make the same
run for. We venture to say that nine
cases out of ten your local printer will
do the work more satisfactorily and at
cheaper rates haa the foreign fellow.
Aside from these facts, you send
money out of town that might be kept
ia tha community to yonr benefit. A
trading center is a cluster of business
enterprises, which may be made mu
tually beneficial by each one buying
of each other, such articles of mer
chandize as he himself does not keep
for sale. To illustrate : suppose your
local printers do tha entire work of
the community at fair, living rates
(don't aver pay them more) ; they will
then ba enabled to better their facili
ties for work they will grow with
the growth of yonr town; they will
employ more help, who will again
increase the business done. The true
business man recognizee the mutuality
of benefits, and furthers bis own in-
tereet by building ap his community. I

On Saturday last about 2 o'clock tbe
alarm of fire was given from tbe En
gine House, and a heavy column of
smoke was seen to rise on Nebraska
Avenue. In a few minutes a goodly
number of the active citizens of the
town were present and at work assist
ing tbe firemen, who were promptly
on hand and at work. The building
ablaze was the property of Mr. Sutton
of Boone county, on tbe alley north of
Arnold's jewelry store and south of
Honaban's shoe store, and occupied
recently by James Kay and Mr. Phln
ney. The fire originated in the rear
apartment used by Mr. Kay as a work
room. Mr. K. had locked up the
store about ten minutes before tbe
flames were noticed and had started
for the fair ground. The fire engine
was placed at the well near Fried
hoff s, and a strong stream of water
kept constantly at play on and in tbe
burning building, while volunteer
firemen with buckets did what execu
tion they could. The firemen worked
hard, managed admirably and soon
the flames were under control, and
the buildin? partial I v saved. The
ship on Kay's front was not burned,
not a rope scorched. The building
was of cottonwood. Goods were re
moved from Arnold's store aud some
one stole about $25 worth before they
were returned to their place. Mr.
Kay claims a loss of twelve to thirteen
hundred dollars partially insured.
The heavy rains of Sunday last

Mr. Jacob Steffes will again re
build ; his plan is to build a hotel and
saloon in separate buildings; he has
bought an addition of one-half lot
from Newell South, which will give
him more room. He began bis foun
dation on Monday.
We are pleased to state that- Mr.
Newell South has decided to rebuild
bis hardware store here as soon as he
can make his collections among tbe
farmers ; be sorely feels his loss, but
being built of the right stuff, endeav
ors to follow the example set by tbe
Industrious ant, "if at first you do not
succeed, to try, try again."
Yonr correspondent learned from
tbe secretary of the Farmers' Alli
ance that at their regular meeting
Friday evening, May 10th, at Creston,
fifty-two members voted to assist
Newell South by their sympathy and
trade to rebuild. Mr. South has been
here for a little over one year and has
a host of friends who truly sympa
thize with him in his loss. C.

Aa Extraordiaary Book.
Some mouths ago the editor of this
paper saw lying on a table at a hotel
in Fullerton a book entitled the En
cyclopedia of Health aud Home. Cas
ually opening and examining some of
its pageB, be became immediately in
terested, devoting perhaps an hour to
its examination. Ho has recently had
an opportunity to procure a copy, aud
takes this opportunity to call public
attention to it. The Encyclopedia is
a book of eighteen hundred pages, in
two volumes, (or the two combined in
one at a less prhe), and treats upon
all diseases, accidents and ailments of
men, women and children, giving
simple home remedies. It gives
causes, symptoms, remedies and pre
ventatives. The medical portions of
the work are by Prof. Wood of Phila
delphia, Dr. Ruddock ofEnglaud and
Dr. Frost of New York. It contains
eight or nine divisions or departments
not strictly medical, all of them, and
they aro of extraordinary value to
every family and every individual. A
department entitled the "Ladies Man
ual" has one hundred and eighty
pages, which every woman, sick or
well, should be familiar with. Its
information is designed not only to
cure the sick, but to enable those who
are well to keep well. One hundred
pages are devoted to domestic ani
mals, giving causes, symptoms and
cures for all ailments of horses, cattle,
hogs, sheep and poultry. Tbe book
is an exceedingly practical, common
sonse work that every family should
have. An important fact in regard to
it is that it contains all tbe new and
important remedies which modern
science and skill have developed. It
is new, reliable and comprehensive.
One of its strongest claims to consid
eration is the nigh estimation in which
it is held by the very best people, all
over the country, and the immense
sale it is having everywhere. The
publishers employ about two hundred
flrst-clas3 men as general agents, each
having his allotted territory, and these
two hundred have about one thousand
sub agents and canvassers who carry
the book to the very door of every
family throughout the Union. It is
expected that five years will be re
quired to thoroughly canvas the
United States. Thus far, about two
hundred thousand copies have been
published, and the canvas is ouly just
heguu. Any of our subscribers who
fail to see the canvasser and would
I liko a copy, may leave word at this
uuiuu aim we win iiimisn me agents
address. Tbe book cannot be procur
ed except by subscription.
Our quotations of the markets are ob
tained Tuesday afternoon, and are correct
and reliable at thp time.
