The mammoth skating rink which is being erected on 13th street by Mr. Hardell will open up for the diversion of the public about the middle of the month.

They insure against death caused by disease or accidents and theft. 1S--1 Krause, Lubker fc Co. have fitted up a tin shop in connection with their hardware establishment and have three tinners busy turning out tin ware. They are prepared to do auy work in this line at reasonable rates. The sultry rains of the fore part of the week were followed by swel tering heat on Thursday aud a de lightfully cool wave Thursday even ing. The season has been noted for tho absence of any continued heat waves. J. S. Crawford leaves with us some fine specimens of tomatoes, with the remark they don't keep long this season. We arc of the opinion that these particular ones will not keep long they never do, at our house. The attractive half-page ad. of tho enterprising firm of Krause, Lubker & Co. is doing its work with telling effect, and the sheckels arc literally pouring into their till from the sale of goods which they there introduce to the public. It is becoming quite tho proper caper for the young men of the city to keep their own turn-outs, and soon the young fellow who can't take his girl for a ride with his own horse and buggy must rank below par in the feminine estimation. Tho sympathy of his friends will go out to that young gentleman of the city who in a ride with his girl the other day had the misfortune to break a whipplc-treo and was obliged to walk more than a mile before the damage could be repaired. Grouud was broken last week on the site of the new Lutheran church building which will be erected on the corner of M and 14th streets, just west of O. T. Roen's residence and the structure which is to be a frame on stone foundation is now well under way. The Columbus Base Ball Club won second honors at the Friend tour nament, winning four games out of five. The regular nine would have taken the first honors. The club left one sick horse at Seward, and a run off at the bridge near this city broke up their wagon. The Domestic Sewing Machine is not excelled for ease of running, good work and durability. It will last you a life time, and with proper (ordinary) care, will always be ready for service. For 6ale at A. & M. Tur ner's book aud music store, or by G. W. Kibbler, their traveling sales man. 14-tf The Nellie Boyd theatrical com bination will appear at the Opera to-night for an engagement of two nights only.

The Platte County Teachers' As sociation will hold a meeting Friday evening, Sept. 12th, at S o'clock in Columbus, at the west end Echool. To this all engaged or interested in the educational cause arc earnestly invited to come. The following pro gram will be presented : C J. Gar low, paper, "Disadvantage of our Public Schools"; Miss Martin, recita tion; Miss McGath, paper on Geog raphy; Miss Lizzie Senecal, select reading. The program will be inter spersed with music. M. E. Coalter, Emma E. Bauer, W. H. Tedrow. Ex. Com. We are sorry to learn that H. Wurdeman, residing in Sherman township, had tho misfortune to have his house and contents destroyed by fire on Thursday last. Only a bed and sewing machine were saved out of the entire furniture. A hired man of the premises lost $50 in cash which was in the house, and the hired girl of the family also lost .25. The fire is supposed to have originated in a defective Hue in the kitchen, and when discovered was too well under headway to succumb to such means for extinguishing as were at hand. There was only .200 insurance on the house and furniture. One of the very meanest of offen ces is the wanton destruction of prop erty. The windows of unoccupied houses have been the peculiar and favorite point of attack by "hood lums" around town, but last week somebody broke out one of the win dows in I. Gluck's dry-goods store. Of course it must have been done under the cover of darkness and by thoughtless boys. It would bo a good thing for the boys if they should be caught in one of these ventures and punished to the full extent of the law. Bliud Boone, the colored musical prodigy who gave two entertainments at the Opera House Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, is destined to rival the famous Bliud Tom in the plaudits of the world as a musical phenomenon, many experts iu music pronouueing him much superior. His entertainments are undoubtedly more exceptablo and pleasing for tho absence of the self applauding characteristic of Tom. The enter tainment drew good houses aud gave perfect satisfaction. Wo cannot speak from personal observation, but are reliably informed that the recent work on the brick school building of the east end of the city has placed the structure in first class repair and a much better availa ble condition lor school purposes. This has been accomplished by entire ly remodeling tho inside of the build ing. The grounds have alco been graded with a view to their orna mentation with shade trees next season. We print elsewhere in to-day's Journal an open letter by Hon. Jno. McUugh of Crcsco, Iowa, on the political . situation. This talented gentleman is a nephew of Jno. Walker of this county, and like him, is very enthusiastic for Blaine and Logan. The Iicyislcr, from which wc clip, says that Mr. McIIugh is one of the substantial, respected citizens of northern Iowa, and his words and example will havo great influence with the Irish wherever he is known. The Columbus Driving Park & Fair Association arc making extraor dinary exertions to make this season's fair a grand success; the directors have reduced the price of tickets in lots of ten or more to business men, who, it is expected, will buy aud give to their customers, which will bring many people to the fair who would otherwise not come. Give the society a lift and help make the fair a success. Morrissey Bros, have removed their scales and located an oflico on the corner of 13th and N. streets, the same block in which their elevator is located, and have associated with them Loucy Weaver of this city, the business in the future to be run under the firm style of Morrissey Bros. & Weaver. Lou has first-class business qualifications that will make him a valuable acquisition to the business. Railroad tickets to the re-union at Fremont will bo sold at TJ. P. and B. & M. stations for l' cents a mile. They will be on sale to the fifth, good for going passeuger one day after date of sale aud limited for return on or before Sept. S. Round trip tickets from Columbus $1.35; Lost Creek $1.G5; Platte Center $1.S0; Humphrey $2.10 ; Genoa $1.95 ; St. Edwards $2.30 ; Albion $2.65. Our enterprising fellow towns man, Mr. J. N. Taylor has recently come into possession of the forty-acre tract of land near Mr. Gotschalk's residence, formerly owned by Capt. Wadsworth. A good share of the tract is under cultivation and we ex pect Mr. T. will turn to practical account "what he knows about farm ing." The re-union program was re ceived too late for publication last week ; it includes company and battal ion drills, artillery evolutions, dress parades, camp fires, state re-unions, a grand sham battle.naval engagements, reception to Sergt. Brainard of the Greely expedition and a children's camp fire under direction of Captain Hammond of this city. Sec our proposition for the Jour nal and the Weekly Chicago Trib une, until the issue after the pres idential election, for 75 cents. Present subscribers to our paper can obtain the Tribune free by paying a year in ad vance for the Journal.

Miss Laura Butler went to Topeka, Kansas, last week to finish her edu cation at the female seminary at that place. Messrs. J. W. Early, B. R. Cowdery aud Ed. Iloare attended tho state con vention at Omaha last week as spec tators. Miss Anna C. Turner returned home Friday from Council Bluffs, where she had been in attendance at Paulson's Commercial College the past ten weeks. E. T. Long, of Boone county, was in the city Monday. His familiar face reminded us of early days in Nebras ka. He reports excellent crops iu Boone aud the farmers happy. Al. Rieder, returning from his sum mer vacation trip, was in the city Sat urday. Al. was visiting iu Iudiana and also in Tennessee and is not iu love with either of those states. George Schram returned to Colum bus from St. Paul last week, where he his been engaged in the drug busi ness. We understand he has sold out at St. Paul and will look up a new location. Elmer Sheets came up from Colfax county last week to attend the insti tute at this place. We arc pleased to sec that Elmer is advancing iu his profession. He has been employed as teacher in the Schuyler schools. "Fatty" Woods returned home from Chicago last week. He visited several days with friends in Indiana, aud re ports a good time. Besides fiudiug out that there i3 no place like Ne braska, he also got several "pointers" in regard to hog raising, and the care of sick cows. A iew Enterprise. Messrs. Armstrong and Davis have engaged in the business of a canning factory in this city, their building being located on the alley between 12th and 13th streets at the rear of Eimcr's building, where they have in position an engine and all the neces sary machinery to carry on the busi ness on a large cale. Mr. Armstrong is the practical member of the firm, and has had ample experience in the business in the east to insure the un dertaking against experimental fail ures, and he has associated with him Mr. Chas. Davis of this city who is well known as a gentleman full of energy and push iu whatever he un dertakes, and we predict for the en terprise a cotnpleto success, which means wealth for its projectors and a valuable acquisition to the business of the city. Starting, as it does, a little late in the season, the enterprise will not assume the proportions and import ance as a business that it is intended it shall take on next year when beef canning on an extensive scale will be added. This season's work will embrace the canning of all kiuds of available vegetables and fruits.besides the man ufacture of the delicious condiment known as catsup, made from the pro lific and toothsome tomato, which will be a large item'in the productions.

Humphrey. Tho G. A. R's. started for Fremont Tuesday morning. School commenced Monday, Mr. I. M. Goudcnng, teacher. A very interesting temperance lec ture was given our people by Rev. Mr. Bink from Dakota on Sunday and Monday evening last. What was supposed by some to be a free fight Saturday turned out to bo somewhat expensive; three of the party were taken before F. M. Cook ingham, Esq., aud mado to pay a fine to the village of Humphrey, $3 each and costs. The County Alliance held a love feast at Blocdorn's hall Saturday last. "Turn the rascals out, execration, cremation and preservation" wero talked about. Two sets of delegates were elected to represent Platto coun ty, and Lincoln will probably be compelled to right up the bolt, bolt ers, &c. Last Thursday morning the village was wide awake at an early hour; people apparently knew that some thing joyful was iu 6toro for some one. The Humphrey band assembled near tho Catholic church with their instru ments well in order. The occasion was the marriage of Mr. Nicholas Fleicher to Miss Carrie, daughter of Wm. Eimcrs and at the final perform ance of the ceremony at the church, tho .Band escorted the happy couplo with joyful music to the bride's home. They took tho train for the east on an extended trip.
