A Polish woman by the name of
Br egg, whose home is about 14 miles
northwest of Columbus, met with a
fatal accident Saturday. She and an
other woman were in a wagon, when
the team became frightened near
Flynn's brick yard, the front part of
the wagon separated from the other,
the box falling to the ground throw
ing the women out, and a barrel of
salt falling upon tho unfortunate
woman, produced internal injuries
which resulted in her death a short
time afterwards. As there was no
question concerning the cause of her
death, no inquest was held. There is
a rumor, however, that the team was
frightened by another from behind,
driven by drunken men.
Everything is not lovely and har
monious in the camp of the Platte

there appear to be some "brass-colored

is meant, but the poor compositor waB
probably so much hurried in setting
up the phrase, ditto the proof-reader
in looking over the same, that the
mistake was overlooked. Says the
Democrat concerning a coalition with
"If they combine with us for the
purpose of obtaining a common result
none can object or will object except
those who ride on free passes and
oppose legislation that limits the des
tructive powers of corporations."
When Democratic doctors disagree,
who shall decide, except a Republi
can referee? .

Is a man of nerve and determination,
one who will do his duty as an officer
under all circumstances, and will hold
himself in readiness to serve the pub

of the sheriff and the public interest
would be his only inquiry.

men, in whom his fellow citizens have
great confidence, which they will give
evidence of on the day of election.

ordinary ability, a successful teacher,
a good scholar, an excellent penman,
and otherwise well qualified for the
position of clerk of the district court.
JOHN G. ROUTSON
Needs no commendation from us or
anybody else. His record is as fair
and true as the lines his compass runs.
He is one of those men who does his
work just right, and those who kuow

been the surveyor for the county be
fore, aud he will honor the county in
the position again.
DR. C. D. EVANS,

well known to most of our readers.
The people of the comity have tried
him and found him faithful to the
trusts reposed in him ; he has admin
istered the affairs of his office well,
very well ; the schools of the county
have advanced in usefulness under his
charge, and a higher grade of qualifi
cation has steadily been required of
teachers applying for certificates.
The entire ticket is a good one,
worthy the support of every republi
can in the county.

position with credit to himself and
honor to the county.

Is It True.
How often do we hear people say:
"Prize scholars aro never heard from
afterwards," or "the dull boy will be
come the successful man eventually."
But does experience, do the facts prove
these sayings true? Aro the ambi
tious, precocious prize scholars never
heard from afterwards? Let us see.
Milton, the greatest of modern
writers, began to show his remarka
ble powers when a mere child. His
wonderful hymn on the "Nativity"
was written as a college exercise.
Bacon, the founder of modern
scienee, or at least of iuductive reas
oning, was a precocious child. He
left his playfellows one day to study
the philosophy of an echo.
Addison, the prince of essay writ
ers, entered the University of Oxford
Goethe, the idol of the Germaus, the
immortal author of "Faust," exhibited
his remarkable talents almost as soon
as he could speak. One of the educa
tional means used by his excellent
mother was the telling of stories of
her own invention to her little boy.
Lord Byron seems to have been
precocious in everything. His life
may have been vicious, his death pre
maturebut who does not like to
read his "Childe Harold" and "The
Prisoner of Cliillon"?
Thomas Moore's precociousness did
not prevent him from singing his
Irish melodies with exquisite sweet
ness. Did not Robert Burns write some
of his sweetest poem3 when a mere
youth? Aud our own Bryant wrote
"Thanatopsis,'' the best known of all
his poems, at the age of ui netcen.
It seems to be rather true, after all,
that most of our great men were
somewhat precocious. There is no
reason why an ambitious prize scholar
should cc.'ise to he successful after
school-life is over. At any rate, let
us not discourage an intelligent, book
loving child from reading in modera
tion, the books he loves.
Our old friend Major Burgess,
now publishing the Record at Nation
al City, Cal.. still has a fondness for
the midly ridiculous iu literature. In
the last Uecot'd he copies a portion of
Justice York's resignation, tendered
to the supervisors of Stanislaus coun
ty. It will be appreciated wherever
there arc inferior courts:
"When criminal actious are pro
tracted by 'the law's delays' until the
Justice finally comes out iu debt for
his tobacco and stationery ; when
attorneys aud counselors from Supe
rior courts will flatly tell the Justice
that he cannot do a thing which he
has already done; when a studied
semblance of judicial dignity and wis
dom is looked upon as 'owl like im
becility'; when the serious rulings of
'the Court' arc called 'the ravings of a
crank' then 'patience ceases to be a
virtue,' and who would 6iich fardelB
hear, to groan and grunt and sweat
under the weary life of public duties,
when he himself can his quietus make
with a bare resignation ?"
