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

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.

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.

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.

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

will be a large item'in the productions.
