old-time enthusiasm for fruit-raising.
He says that all sorts of small fruits
are so far doing well here this season,

gooseberries promises to be abundant ;
tame apples will not be far behind.
He leaves us a huge bundle of Mam

State S. M. CeHTCHtlea
Will meet at Columbus June 12th.
We expect, that being so centrally
located in the state, a large delegation
will be present. The soliciting com
mittee of hospitality are attending to
that business this week. Our citi
zens with their usual good feeling in
such matters will doubtless do their
level best to assist these committees
to perfect the arrangements and give
a cordial welcome to all these visitors.
The meetings are usually of great
interest and profit, so that not only
will these people from all parts of the
state who shall come to attend these
meetings learn where our enterpris
ing town is situated but carry away
with them pleasant reminiscenses of
their visit to Columbus.
The Columbus Maennerchor is an
institution of which our citizens are
very justly proud. In several musi
cal contests they have carried the
palm as against Kansas City, Omaha
and other cities of far greater preten
tions than Columbus. They are about
to attend another of these interesting
and very exciting contests, to take
place at St. Joseph on the 14th of
next month, and desire to have all
their members go with them. This
they can do if our citizens will turn
out as liberally as heretofore, to the
benefit concert to be given next Tues
day evening, May 29th, when the pro
gramme will be the completest ever
offered, and when they will be assist
ed by MisB Roso North and others.
Let our citizens give the Maennerchor
such a send-off as they will never
The Central City Courier of the
17th has this to say of the man Rash
who was mentioned in laBt week's
Journal : "RaBh has been attending
a series of protracted meetings hold
by Adventists in the neighborhood of
Silver Creek, and became so wild
there that, we are informed, he was
spirited away to Columbus and left
there, in the hopes that the county
authorities would take care of him.
He first attracted the attention of the
Columbus people by mounting a
hydrant and beginning to preach, ne
was promptly taken before the Board
of Insanity, who after due investiga
tion found he belonged to this county,
and the deputy sheriff was according
ly dispatched with him. Rash imag
ines himself to be the "Savior of Sin
ners" upon his second advent, and
spends a good deal of his time in
singing and pounding an accompani
ment with anything that is available
for that purpose. Tuesday morning
he got a little wicked and wanted to
fight, so that sheriff Hopkins was
obliged to confine him in the dark
bole for awhile. Mr. Hopkins left
with him for Lincoln yesterday morn
ing." Mr. Joseph Gardner tells us
that he thinks there will be several
more cases of the same kind before
the summer is over, if the excitement
is not stopped.
Sanil. B. Perry, a grandson of the
immortal commodore, recently sen
tenced to the Jackson penitentiary for
five years for robbing a county treas
ury, said in an interview with a re
porter : "Gambling, wine and women
of easy virtue will destroy any man.
They have finished me. Look at me
what I am and what I was no ser
mon, however eloquent-tongued the
orator, was ever preached from pulpit
that teaches as forcible a moral lesson
as the history of my life. No man can
violate the laws of God and man and
escape punishment." When asked
how it all came about, he replied,
"Oh, everything came in its torn easy
enough. Love of excitement and of
gaming. Then I took to drink and
associated with disreputable women.
All this coBt money. When I could
not get it in one way I soon became
hardened enough not to hesitate to
procure it by other and unlawful
means." From bis confession he was
engaged in the bank robbery at Balti
more of $1,000,000. The lessons of
his wild career, with its close in the
penitentiary, should be heeded by the
young men who have been led into the
gambling and other dens which beget

DO HAUNT MS MIND STILL.
One bright morning last week
Tom Williams arose;
Bitter tears did he weep
After his night's repose.
lie said to bib wife
While his head it hung down,
"This day I will plow
Along side neighbor Brown."
Said his wife, "Dearest Thomas,
You look very bad,
As if trouble aid haunt you
Or some disappointment you had."
"Pre had no disappointment
My fortune to blight;
But those direful visions
That appeared in the night.
He sharpened his plow;
He reined up his steed,
And away to the plow field
He hastily did speed.
To dispel fears from those visions
He began tor to sing;
Though doleful it sounded,
The valley did ring.
He plowed but an acre
And a couple of rod
When he plowed up i corpse
From beneath the green sod.
He fainted and swooned on'
As he lay by the plow,
Saying, "the visions of last night
Are coming out now."
When he recovered his senses
He halloed for Brown
To come look at the sight
And report it in town.
Sir Brown's best opinion
Was it must be a foreigner,
"I'll dispatch to Columbus
And bring out the coroner."
Tom said it was a girl
Young, blooming and fair:
He could tell by her cheek bone.
And bright auburn hair.
Or it might be some traveler
That was robbed for his gold,
By some arrant rascal
And laid here in the cold.
Brown went for Doc. Powell
To come witness the scene,
That Tom Williams bad plowed up
From under the green.
While the Doctor and Brown
Went to the blood scattered field,
lorn went to town
To consult with 'Squire Field
To ask his advice
What steps to pursue,
As to the perpetrator
Did they find a clue.
Tom related his story
In a very sorrowlul way ;
Every word he would speak
He would stop for to pray.
When the story was told
'Squire Field he sat down;
Began William to scold
With a terrible frown;
He looked at Tom Williams
With a dogmatical sigh,
Saying, "you rooted and plowed up
31 y dear old dog Fry.
"I had buried him there
Over one year ago
And covered him with care,
Beneath the deep snow.
"Where his bones they might rest
From many a long race
O'er the hard beaten prairie
The wild .lack he did chase."
Tom Williams sleeps yet
In a terrible trance
If he ever recovers
It's only a chance.
The thoughts of the corpse field
Do make his blood chill
And the ghosts of the cur dog
Do haunt his mind still.

State Secretary's Office,
May 10th, 1883.
The annual convention of tho Ne
braska Sunday School Association
will be held at Columbus, June 12, 13,
and 14, commencing on Tuesday even
ing, and closing Thursday evening.
Columbus says "come," and it is mak
ing every effort to insure success.
Each school and county association is
entitled to two delegates. The rail
roads make the usual reduction of one
and one-fourth fare for the round trip.
The Sioux City and Pacific road will
return persons who have paid full fare
goiug, at one-fourth fare upon pre
sentation at their office in Fremont of
a certificate of attendance at tho con
vention. The Union Pacific and the
Burlington & Missouri River roads
will sell excursion tickets good for the
ronnd trip at one and one-fourth fare
upon presentation at the station of
starting ot a certificate obtained from
the corresponding secretary of the
association before leaving home,
which certificate entitles the holder
to such excursion ticket at the reduced
rate. Be sure to obtain these certifi
cates prior to starting from home by
applying to the corresponding secre
tary H. B. Gilbert, at Kearney, Neb.,
stating the route by which you reach
B. F. Jacobs of Chicago, chairman
of the executive committee of the In
ternational Sunday School Associa
tion, is expected to be with us, and
together with leading Sunday school
workers of our own state will make
the convention one of deep interest
and profit to the Sunday school peo
ple present. Bring Gospel Hymns
combined, together with bibles, pen
cils and note paper.

Mparkw from Crextea.
Farmers are busy planting corn.
S. J. Wheeler's children are recov
ering from an attack of lung fever,
and some of tbem have again made
their appearance at school.
Mr. Lewis Scudder has lately re
turned from Oakdale, where he has
been attending college since early last
fall. He reports it to be a good school.
There was quite an interesting time
at the Alliance Saturday evening.
The cause which led to tho discussion
can be briefly stated thus : the Alli
ance having received a circular from
the State Alliance requesting them to
reorganize and take out a new char
ter, it was accordingly laid ou the
table for discussion, Messrs. Wheeler,
Olson and Dean favoriug the move
ment and G. W. Kibler disapproving.
The negative, however, submitted.
N. Olson then, determined not to be
behind the times, introduced a reso
lution to celebrate the Fourth of July,
which was unanimously adopted.
Messrs. G. W. Kibler, N. Olson and
S. Kasmnssen were appointed as a
committee on arrangements, and,
judging from the sentiment expressed
at their meeting last night, we believe
they will make it a grand success.
