"Tom" Wilson of Fremont, well known to a number of our readers, died recently at Columbus, Ga.,where he was filling an engagement with the "Wild West" combination. The Blair Pilot says bis one fault proved his ruin and death in the prime of man hood. We notice quite a number of far mers from Iowa and Illinois looking for land in Nebraska. Columbus is a good place to radiate from for this purpose, centrally located, and rail road communication in every direc tion, besides a good place to gather information. The report of the condition of the First National Bank of Columbus, at the close of business Dec 31st, '83, appears elsewhere in to-day's Jour nal. Loans and discounts to the amount of $106,514, and deposits footing np to $73,991, shows a healthy state of business. P. W. Henrich, insurance agent, Platte Center, is off on a business trip for the German Ins. Co. in the south ern part of the state.

Schoonmaker, a business man of Illinois, came last week to see his father-in-law J. R. Smith, and also to hunt up a place in Nebraska to buy and store corn till the planting season. Illinois farmers have not so much corn over as will do them for seed till spring. Mr. S. wants to buy twenty to thirty thonsand bushels. Dr. McAllister, dentist, will be in Columbus the last two days of this month, next week Wednesday and Thursday, to do first-class dental work. Inquire at the photo rooms of O. A. Stearns. The Dr. expects to come to Columbus as soon as the weather will permit to fit up a first class office and photograph rooms. 2 We learn that Ex-Senator T. W. Tipton is to deliver his Washington City lectures at Fremont, about the 12th of February, and we suggest that it would be a fitting thing for some of our churches, the Opera House Co., or a club of citizens to secure the same here. Mr. Tipton is one of the most eloquent speakers in the west always entertaining. The sparring exhibition last Wednesday evening, we understand, was a well conducted affair, there being no slugging allowed. The ex hibition between Prof. Miller and Tom Cain, which was the main fea ture of the show, was a surprise party to some, as Miller was no match at all for Cain. Ben. Rochon won the cup for local 6parrer. Several other Co lumbus men took a part. Platte county's delegation to the anti-monopoly convention, Messrs. John Freeman, D. L. Bruen, S. J. Wheeler, M. H. White and Fred. Anson, returned home Friday last, and report a very interesting session. The principal speakers were Judge Barnd, McKegon, E. Bosewatcr, J. Burrows, Capt Stickel, Green and Manchester. The Opera Honse in which the convention was held was crowded. The Kearney New Era speaks a good word for the Building k Loan association of that place, as bringing together men of capital, and men of muscle, working for a common end the improvement of the town, and the bettering of their own condition. Similar associations in scores of eastern towns and cities have accom plished wonders for workmen of limited means, and enabled tnem to become property owners.. - Sunday week WllL "Winter botham came nearly being killed by a flying engine on the Albion branch. The engine struck, one of the hind wheels of the buggy, throwing WilL ont and braising him considerably. He describee it very graphically, say ing the engine seemed to be sat tap of him. It was a very uusoal tunej for an engine te pes? and " there . was ne warning given of its appraenn at the creasing. Fousd.

Nicholas Welling, St Bernard. At the meeting of Pioneer Hook k Ladder Co. No. 1 Monday evening, Jan. 21st, the following omcers were elected: President, Jas. Pearsall; foreman, Geo. Fairchild ; 1st assistant, Dick Jenkinson; 2d assistant, Geo. Smith ; secretary, D. N. Miner; treas urer, Will McAllister. Board of trustees to consist of the president, foreman and treasurer. In all reports in reference te dis eases of hogs, it is found that when ever soft corn is fed cholera is a pre vailing disease. The disease is not in an epidemic form, bat it seems to be due to the corn that is fed. Farmers or those who have hogs to feed should be careful in their feeding. A hog is like any other animal, if it does not get suitable foot its digestive organs will become affected and re sult in some disease. Jfarqyette In dependent. The Sidney Plaindealer, re marking npon Judge Gaslin's sending a man to the penitentiary ior fifteen years for forging a small note, says : One year for forging the note, and fourteen years was for general cussed ness. Think of it, fourteen years for general cussedness. The next time that Judge Gaslin comes up to Sidney to hold court there will be a sign hanging on the window of this omce, which will read as follows: The editor and staff have gone to the Black Hills, will not retarn until after oeurt adjourns." The Seward Blade is after the men of loose morals and easy virtue that make themselves a blazing nuisance in that town. The fellows that are thus given publicity don't seem to like the situation. In com menting on this state of affairs the Blade's editor makes some very sen sible remarks, among which are that "men and boys who get into bad scrapes are generally those who squander their money anyhow, and they care nothing for a fine of a few dollars," and another to the effect that the disgrace of being: . i'ed up in police court and the fi c posed is considered as nothing these fellows compared to a repo or it in the papers. The disgrace r.ith them is not in the commission of the evil, but in being caught and haying it made public Kerievr f the Weather At Genoa for the year ending December 31st, 1SS3: Mean temperature of year deg's. 44.42 47.16 ilen do of last o rears aeg's ... .

Owing to the prevalence of easterly winds no migratory grasshoppers have put in an appearance this year, either going north or south. The year has also been noted for the remarkable red glow of the sky before sunrise and after sunset, dur ing the latter part of November and beginning of December, a phenome non about which scientists have not been able to arrive at any positive conclusion. In thus reviewing the meteorolog ical aspect of our horizon for the past year, there is abundant cause for thankfulness that while our brethren Lin various parts of the country have been suffering from the various casu alties of storm, flood and frost, we have been permitted to enjoy the abundant fruits of our labor, with little fear irom these powerful though often unavoidable results of nature's laws. for Caaaty Tessclwrs' To be held at the yellow school house, Columbus, Neb., on Friday evening, Feb. 8th, T34, beginning at 7:30 o'clock.

The sudden changes in weather are the cause of much sickness in the neighborhood. Neils Pederson intends to give ev erybody a nice time Friday evening, Feb. 8th, at his house west of town. Joseph Linabery was appointed constable for Granville township in place of Kimhart Weilm who failed to qualify. Our singing school is to be a suc cess and therefore those who can sing and those who want to learn are in vited to attend every Tuesday and Wednesday evening. There was quite a lively tussel at the lower saloon Friday evening ; a few scarred faces and torn clothes is the result, so far as learned. We with hold names, but will not promise to again. Some of the readers of the Journal also take and read the Madison Chron icle. There is an article in I think its last issue, assailing Humphrey, claim ing to be written by an Humphrey correspondent. The writer has been looked for, but as yet he can not be found ; it has been attributed to one man east of here, but he denies writ ing the matter so I will briefly say that onr preachers are a class of men who are not grumblers, and the peo ple in town do not wish to have a less number; as for the saloons they are doing a prosperous business, and all branches of business have prospered in our town ; there is one point in said letter 1 wish to dwell a little upon, which says "I took a load of hogs to Madison and made six dol lars by so doing ;" that is a very small matter to harp upon we have almost daily parties that are honest enough to tell that they do that and better by bringing their produce and trade here, and our town receives a large support from Madison county, men whe are intelligent, careful men. The writer asserts that he made six dol lars; $L50 to Chronicle and the re mainder, to use his own words, the woman, and thinks that better than to give to preachers and saloons. Per haps it is. But as far as our people are concerned, we have not heard one of 'these preachers swear nor the two saloon keepers pray, but keep right on as if nothing had happened. C.

Parker defines reading as u getting thoughts by means of written or printed words arranged in senten ces." Experience has shown that the ability to read may be acquired inci dentally, if the attention is primarily directed to the subject of the thought. But under the old humdrum system the mechanical pronunciation of the words of a sentence in their proper order is called reading. The means are mistaken for the end, and the true end is not reached. In consequence of this we hare dull, distasteful, un profitable, monotonous and unpleas ant reading exercises. The object of all school exercises is to promote mental growth. Words have only a representative value. Thought con trols the expression ; passages which are not understood cannot be read clearly and forcibly. All elocution ary drill which is not preceded by an intelligent mastery of the passage is not only out of place, but exceedingly hurtful. It is quite evident that be fore a class has mastered a selection, it will have to be engaged upon it by discussions, written efforts, etc There will be little if any time for elocu tionary drill, distinctively as such; nor is any needed. The true and only drill needed is the simple effort to express the idea of a passage while studying it. Says one of our most independent teachers : "Good reading never comes from rules, it comes from attempts to express, earnestly and clearly, an adequately comprehended thought. I have taught elocution a good deal myself, but I teach less and less of it ; as I find my classes read more and more, and are really hungry for the appetizing relish, which comes from stopping with a meaty passage, and staying long enough to extract its sweetness." By such- a system, however, our progress "through the book" will be slow ; our patrons, etc. will become impatient. But, fellow teachers, it matters not ; we stand on a higher plane; we know the real purpose of the reading class. We are not ignorant of the fact that every American citizen considers it his con stitutional right to bully "that teach er." The now famous Mr. Alcott was starved out of Boston fifty years ago for maintaining that the best way to teach children is to begin by ob serving how they teach themselves. Our reading class is the true language and literary class, including spelling, reading and composition (oral and written). There our boys and girls learn by practice to express their ideas orally and by writing, with ease and force. There they learn to ap preciate beauty and force of expres sion. There they learn to recognize authors by their styles. There they learn good syntax and good usage of English idiom. Children are not ex pected to be elocutionists. Quiet, simple, intelligent reading is our aim ; no more "rant and strut." A genuine apprehension of the thought and feel ing of the selection will lead to a much better delivery than those senseless drills in pitch, tone, inflec tions, etc., etc. If the teacher has no time to train the pupils "to a good understanding of the passage read, then be has no time to train them to the elocutionary delivery of that passage. The first is the foundation on which the second rests ; it is the material out of which it is formed." I think it was Gen. Sheridan who reported to his superior before Rich mond that he was ready to "push" things. Fellow teachers, are we ready to "push" a reading reform? We ought to be. Teacher.
