Jos-Webster of Monroe was in

trouble from re-planting. His own
seed was selected while yet in the

by frost, and he has a splendid stand
from the first planting.
The fearful stench of Tuesday
night, last week, came from tho
Packing House. Denizens looked
around in tho morning to see what
could possibly cause such a perfect
odor, in the immediate vicinity of

offensive materia, and Columbus
ought to be as patient as possible con
sidering the great advantages of the
Packing House to the city.
We give the following paragraph
for the benefit of our police force.
Columbus is not in a mood to receive
such accessions to her population as
referred to : "One honse of ill-repute
in the central portion of the North
Side, has been closed and the pro
prietress has gone to Columbus.

board Monday evening, Jno. Wiggins

action of the board in employing
Chas. Brindley, Esq., to take Mr.
Brugger's place as teacher, was ap
proved; an examining committee
consisting of the committee on
teachers and the Superintendent was
agreed upon ; a special meeting of the
board will take place on the 6th inst.,
to consider the petition of citizens to
bond the district for $12,000 to build

Men of little brains with a taste
for strong drink may derive comfort
from the result of recent experiments
which a French temperance society
has been making on the alcoholization
of pigs, from which it was fonnd that
alcohol had no particular injurious
effect upon this animal. This fact, it
was concluded, wa9 owing to the
smallness of a pig's brain; and the
difference of the effect of alcohol on
persons is attributed to the difference
in the size of the brain the larger
the brain the more dangerous the
effect of intoxication. Consequently,
men of low intellectual endowments
might indulge their love for the
ardent with small danger from de-
1 lerium tremens.
Tho following from the Cedar
Rapids Era relates to former resi
dents of Platte county, who have
many friends in this city :
"Last Sunday as Will Gibson and
his mother were driving one of Dave
Calender's teams home from a ride,
the team got the start of him coming
down the hill south of J. D. Stire's
house, and crossing a ditch or rut, the
hind end of the carriage tnrned over
the front wheels, throwing both out
over the dashboard ; Mrs. Gibson was
bruised up a good deal, but no serious
harm came to either. The team be
ing loosed from the buggy, ran over
to J. S. Robinson's place where one
was thrown and they were caught.
The buggy was badly demoralized,
but the team was not much hurt, and
Will thinks his next ride will be on a
stone-boat with oxen."
The Blair Republican calls at
tention to the fact that fathers of
families frequent low dives in that
place, thus bringing disgrace upon
their families. If the Republican
will strenuously advocate the en
forcement of the laws, it will not
only become unpopular and dis
graceful for married men but also
single men to frequent low dives;
there is an exceedingly strong sense
of decency in Nebraska communities

there is absolutely no reason under

a couple of Seward county emigrants
to Holt county, on discovering that
they could not cross, went to Bell
wood and hired transportation for

men told the writer that he did not
object to paying the price of trans

We regret to state that we hear
of much rc-plaiiting of corn, owing
to pooF seed and this too in most
instances where it. was thought the
proper precautions had been taken to
procure good seed. It seems most
farmers relied on '82 corn for seed,
which, as it turns out, has not come
good this wet cold season, except
under the most favorable conditions.
This is a drawback very much to be
lamented, now that fine growing

Character la Edaeatlea.
The prosperity of a country de
pends, not on the abundance of its
revenues, nor on the strength of its
fortifications, nor on the beauty of
its public buildings ; but it consists in
the number of its cultivated citizens,
in its men of education, enlighten
ment, and character; here are to be
found its true interests, its chief
strength, its real power. Martin Lu-'
We shall never learn to respect our
real calling and destity, unless we
have taught ourselves to consider
everything as moonshine, compared
with the education of the heart.
Walter Scott.-
A beautiful behavior is better than
a beautiful face, and a beautiful soul
is better than a beautiful form; it
gives higher pleasure than statues or
pictures, it is the finest of the fine
arts. .Emerson.
For a settler in a new country, one
good, believing man is worth a hun
dred, nay worth a thousand men
without character. John Brown.
"Life is never problematical to &
youth whose education culminates in
the noblest virtues. He wins in the
race. The trumpet-call of duty rallies
him for every emergency; and her
call is superior to intellect, greater
than genius, loftier than fame, higher
than art, and more inspiring than
pleasure, because it commands them
all. Duty! There is no grander
watchword for human life; it is
charged with conscience; it is ani
mated with courage. The dutiful,
conscientious man is brave; unprin
cipled men and women are cowards.
They are the last persons to stand in
the breach for the right."

From the truth they needs must think.

The month has been noted for the
heavy fall of rain on the 5th, and the
consequent flooding of the eastern
part of Platte county, thereby imped
ing railroad travel for several dayB.
The severity of the storm was local
in its effects, and appeared to proceed
from what might be denominated as
a cloud burst, as two distinct storm
clouds were seen in the distance ap
proaching each other and finally
mingled into one, and as they were
both doubtless filled to saturation pre
viously, the effect which followed
was but the necessary result of com
pressing two such bodies into the
same space.

Natiaa'a Dead Appropriately
The Memorial Day services in
honor of the dead soldiers and sailors
in Columbus cemetery under the
auspices of Baker Post No. 9, G.A.R.,
were largely attended by citizens
from the city and vicinity. Accord
ing to program, at half-past one the
soldiers congregated at Knights of
Pythias Hall and headed by the Co
lumbus Cornet Band, firemen and
the children of the west end school,
marched to the Opera House and
filed in, followed by the children of
the east end and high schools, who
joined them here, the members of the
Post and visiting members from
Humphrey Post occupying the stage,
the school children taking up the
front seats. Every nich of the re
maining space in parquet and gallery
even to the steps was soon filled by
interested spectators.
The stage was beautifully decorated
with flags and lovely floral tributes
to the dead, the central attraction
being the usual cenotaph to tho. mem
ory of the unknown dead.
The program of exercises was both
interesting and impressive, the chil
dren of the different schools, in songs
and declamations, adding very mate
rially to the interest of the occasion.
W. A. McAllister and Rev. Rice ad
dressed .the audience in short and
