The snpply of tenement houses
in the city is entirely inadequate to

a good return on the investment.

The new postal notes do not meet

Charley Adams and Chas. Stitzer,
two Columbus boys of former days,

The Weeping Water base ball
club after their victory at Columbus,
beat the Wahoos on their own
grounds by a score of 6 to 3, after
seven innings had been played, and
on Thursday last tackled the U. P.'s
at Omaha. Although each of the
nine innings was a gooBe egg)fofthem
they held their opponent's score down
o eight runs.
Soldiers and Sailors, who served
in the Union army during the late

who now reside in Platte county,
Neb., are earnestly requested to fur

names, company and regiment, to
enable E. P. Roggen, the secretary of
the Ohio Association in Nebraska, to
complete his roster for publication of
this: clasB'of soldiers and sailors.
On Thursday afternoon last a
match 'game of ball was played be
tween the Central City and Keystone
clubs at the latter's grounds in this
city. Owing to the disagreeable
weather there were few spectators
present to witness the contest, which
resulted in a victory for the home
team by a score of 14 to 2. Following
is the score by innings :

Considerable agitation has been
stirred up in political circles over the
nomination of a thoroughbred demo
crat for the office of district judge Of
the Foutth judicial district by the
anti-monopolists, and it has been a
mooted question as to whether Judge
Higgins would accept the nomination
at the hands of the convention. The
Democrat, of which he is one of the
editors, says neither yea nor nay upon
the subject, but we understand the
Judge to say that he is not a candi
date for the office at all, and therefore
declines the nomination.

A Happy OcciihIob.
The handsome residence of Mr. C.
H. Walker, No. 700 Champa street,
Denver, was the scene of a quiet
wedding on Friday evening, Sept.
7th. Mr. J. S. Henrich of the young
and prosperous firm of Merriam &
Henrich, music dealers, was united in
marriage to Miss Mary Steinbaugh of
Columbus, Nebraska. Mr. Henrich
is the brother of Mrs. C. H. Walker,
at whoBe residence the ceremony was
performed, the Rev. Mr. Westervelt

the best wishes of many friends.
They were the recipients of a number
of valuable presents.

A correspondent of the Drovers'
Journal has this to say of Nebraska
interests : "With its large corn crop,
mild winters and pure bracing atmos
phere, Nebraska should be the great
feeding state of the Union. The crop
of hogs will be the largest eyer
shipped from the state, and they will
be fully matured. In going over the
country you no longer 6ee the long
nosed, razor-backed hogs of a few
years ago, but the plump Berkshire,
the large round and sleek Poland
China and the beautiful Chester
Whites, though the latter are not
sought after much, have taken their
place. The slab-sided, raw boned
cattle are passing away, and the beau
tiful short-horn and white-faced Here
fords are taking their place."
The New "fliddem Haad."
If Mrs. E. D. E. N. Southworth
could have been in the new Opera
House last evening, there would have
been an auditor no more delighted
than herself. The "Hidden Hand,"
her favorite novel, was brought out
more clearly, and the characters she
pictured were truer to her conception
of them than ever seen in any other
attempt made on the stage. Miss
Hattie Irving, from the waif of Rag
alley, and Capitola Black to Capitola
Le Noir, the rich heiress, was a de
cided success, and her every appear
ance on the stage was met with
applause. Billy Robinson's Wool was
fine, and kept pace in darkey sayings
with the wild caprices of Capitola.
The support throughout was good,
and the company made many friends.
The above criticism, from this well
known paper, speaks for itself con
cerning Whiteley's "Hidden Hand"
Company, that appear at the Opera
House on Tuesday evening, Oct. 2d.

The third annual fair of the Colum
bus Driving Park and Fair Associa
tion which opened on Tuesday of last
week was undoubtedly the best in
respect to a first-rate showing in the
various departments that has yet been
held in Platte county, 'and had the
weather been favorable, the last two
days would have witnessed crowds
of people at the grounds to admire
the exhibits and see the races; bat
owing to the bad condition of 'the
track on Thursday, caused by Wed

Owing to the absence of the editor
and consequent extra duty for the
balance of the force, the Journal had
no representative in attendance, and
our report must necessarily be rather
more incomplete than we would like
to make it.
The principal industries of the
county, the raising of cattle, sheep
and hogs, and the growing of all
kinds of grains, particularly corn,
were'represented by a showing that
any country might well feel proud of
and indicate a future for the state
that will soon place Nebraska first
among the bright lights in the galaxy
of rich and prosperous states of the
On every hand we bear jhe splen
did exhibit of cattle spoken of in
glowing tesms. The showing was
far beyond the expectations of any,
and would do credit to a much older
country. In this department there
were about 100 entries, a good share
of which were thoroughbred short
horns and high grades.
J. P. Becker's showing of 17 head
of thoroughbred short horns and high
bred grades, was a conspicuous and
attractive feature In this department.
A. M. Winslow's Sons and Sheldon
& McDill did themselves great credit
by their exhibit of fine pedigreed
J. H. Meyer also made a good
showing of short-horns and grades.
Among other contributors who
helped to make up what constituted a
magnificent exhibit, were the follow
ing: Messrs. Pleyte Bros., Getts &
Burns, M. Postle, C. M. Taylor, J. E.
C. E. Roberts and P. J. Lawrence, all
of whom showed thoroughbred and
high grade cattle.
