Hard frost at Schuyler on the 26th ; at Dakota City the nights during the last week iu the month were very cold, frost killing every thing green. Important to Somebody. If the young men who have been promised situations under those democratic nominees (who hope to be elected), will all 6end their names to the editor of this paper, with the situation prom ised, we will, in exchange, send to each one the entire list. It is becom ing quite too monotonous for certain gentlemen to do a political banking business on this sort of capital. It is a very common dodge with a class of office seekers to promise some posi tion to five or fifteen men in different parts of the county for their supposed influence in the precincts, thinking that 6uch double-dealing will not come to light, at least until after it shall have worked its purpose. Send in the facts, as suggested above, and you will have a revelation. Only one man can be elected to each office, and, according to what we have heard about promises of subordinate posi tions, a considerable number must necessarily be disappointed. We cannot forbear the reflection that in the judicial nominations for this district the republican party has glorified itself. Judge Post is, with out doubt, one of the best judges on the bench of Nebraska. Thoroughly posted, perfectly cool and collected he dispenses law and justice with the skill and mien of a master. The man who submits his case in his hands has not a question that it will be decided according to law and evidence, and even his political enemies concede to him merits of the highest order. Judge Post will be elected by an un precedented majority. Col. Marshall, our candidate for district attorney, is equally fortunate in being a universal favorite and a gentleman against whom, politically or personally, noth ing can be established. He is a thor oughly schooled and competent attor ney whose opinions have as great a weight as those of any other counsel lor in Nebraska. Col. Marshall will go iu with Judge Post on the flood tide. North Bend Hail. Base Ball. The game Thursday last between i the Union Pacifies of Omaha and the Keystones of this city was interesting to the spectators. The Keystones labored under heavy disadvantages, and one of their number, Mr. Weaver, was put out of the game by a wound. However, they took their defeat ad mirably. The Union Pacifies were met at the depot by the Keystones and the Band, and in the evening a ball was given in their honor. Below, we givo the score of the game : UNION PACDTICS. T.B. K. B.H. P.O. A.

In 1848, his father emigrated to St. Louis, Mo., at which place, in the Christian Brothers Academy, Gus. received a considerable portion of his education. Iu 1857, Mr. Becher's father removed to this city, Gus. fol lowing in 1859, in the meantime going to school. For eight years thereafter he was a clerk in the hardware store of Hurford & Bro. at Omaha, where he made many friends. After that he came to Columbus,. and for the suc ceeding four years was engaged in the United States service, under Ma jor Frank North, with the Pawnee Scouts. In '71 be served as enrolling clerk in the state senate. After his return he started in his present busi ness, in which he takes great pride, and in which he has been very suc cessful, enjoying the confidence, and winning the good will of every man with whom he does business. The county's money and the county treas urer's duties will be safe in bis hands. Iln-npltre-r. G. W. Clark is the most wide awake man in town. Mr. Lammer has added to our little village a neat barn for his own use. Cool weather is approaching, so is the candidate for November election. Martin Postle is looking for some lands to locate some of his eastern friends. Rev. Tucker, the Methodist preach er, haa arrived with his family at the parsonage in this place. We have a new operator at the depot by the name of Briggs; he weighed nine pounds; we might add be is an anti-monopolist. John Wagner is doing his own car penter "work on his house, and for an old man, or one of his age, is making rapid progress. Mr. Wm. Eimers has just finished their rooms over his store, having built to twice its former size. Mr. Eimers has enterprise, having sold out bis hardware complete, is putting his whole attention to the other branches of his business. Walter S. Well candidate for county judge, was born at Johnstown, N. Y., in 1857. He comes of good .parentage, his father, John Wells, having served several terms as judge of Fulton count', N. Y., and one as a member of the national congress. Young Wells at tended the public schools of his native town and afterwards Union Univer sity, at Schenectady, graduating in June, 1878. Two years afterwards he graduated from, the Albany Law School. In 1880 he removed to Wheeler county, tbis state, and in September, 1882, to Platte county, whero be now resides and practices law, being a member of the firm of Walker & Wells. The people of the county who do not know Mr. Wells, will have an opportunity during the campaign of making his acquaintance. In the conduct of his office he would pride himself in doing his whole duty by the interests that would come under his charge. Jfew Book Received. Copp's U. S. Salary List and Civil Service Rules.

His father was one of the early pioneers of that then fron tier state, emigrating from Switzer land in 1838, and settling iu Prairie Du Sac, Sauc Co., Wisconsin, the same year. His mother was a native of Germany, so he is a full-booded descendant of that sturdy, independ ent, frugal, persevering stock, that cross from the lands of William Tell and "Old Fritz'' that underlies one of the best strata of our American citi zenship. Henry .was born and raised on a farm, doing the manual labor expected of boys of his age in that position, and receiving the advanta ges of a common school education during the winter months, ending with three terms at the high school in the city of Prairie Du Sac ; thence he served a five year's clerkship iu a general 6tore in his native town, re moving to this city in the early spring of 1879, where he started in the gen eral grocery trade, in which he has met with the invariable success that honesty, prudence, economy and in defatigable energy insure. Last spring, unsolicited and unexpected by him, his friends nominated him for councilman of the second ward of this city. His opponent was one of the most prominent democrats in the city, but Mr. Ragatz was elected by a handsome majority in the old demo cratic ward. To those who know Henry Ragatz no word of commenda tion is needed, aud hie fricuds predict his election to the office of county clerk as a certainty. f Communicated. Mr. Editor: Please allow me a small space to reply to some inquiries why the anti-monopolists did n.-.t en dorse more democrats. It was on acconnt ofa resolutiouoflered.by.the mouth-piece of the "democracy of Platte county, and adopted in their late convention. But the resolution was nothing iu comparison to.theju sinuatiug and&insultfug speech made in connection with it. By looking into the reflector of the great polit ical arena, we see a Post.in the center that he intended those people which he spoke ot should tie to. Jacinto. We thiuk that "Jacinto" does in justice to a very worthy gentleman, in ascribing private and personal reasons for a political,.act. In 'the opinion expressed by the resolution there was a concurrence of the main leaders of the democratie party of Platte couuty, and they all, certainly, could not have'had a personaljreasou. Our correspondent will remember that unmixed party spirit is a power ful Ingredient iu American politics. Ed. Journal. Letter L.lt.
