A runaway one day last week in
the vicinity of the Clother House
caused eye witnesses to fairly hold
their breath for fear of the safety of a
woman whose life seemed imperilled.
She wa3 seated in a single convey
ance and the horse attached was wild
ly dashing in the direction of the
U. P. depot. As the first crossing
was struck by the vehicle the shock
threw the woman from her seat and
pitched her head first between the
thills at the feet of the horse. Those
who witnessed the accident fully ex
pected to find the woman badly in
jured if not killed, but were much
relieved to see her regain her feet
and make off after the runaway ap
The following timely and sensi
ble advice about meeting the hard
times which would seem to have set
tled upon the country we take from
an exchange :
Be patient and forbearing with
your debtors, honest and prompt as
possible with your creditors, live at
the smallest expense possible consist
ent with the health, comfort and hap
piness of yourself and family, quit
talking about hard times and they
will soon disappear. It goes harder
for those used to plenty to surrender
their luxuries than for the poor to
give up full fare, however coarse it
may be, and live on half rations. Real
hard times are when there is a lack of
sustenance for the people, but now
provision? are so plentiful and cheap
that consuming them is the surest
way to dispose of them.
In company with Superintendent
Moncrief last Saturday ye reporter
took a spin behind Mr. M's. spanking
bay roadster over the new road jaat
completed from the city to the fair
grounds. The work was done with
the Lost Creek township grader in
the hands of Lute Jewell and Geo.
Maynard. "When travelled sufficient
ly to reduce the unevenness of the
surface it will make an excellent
piece of road. On the same street,
within the city limits, the ditching
has been extended to a point far
enough south to drain that portion of
the city, which was certainly a much
needed improvement and will be a
benefit to the whole northwest por
tion of Columbus. "We believe the
work was done by private subscrip
tion of the property owners of the
locality immediately benefitted.
The Humphrey Independent has
the following complimentary remarks
to make of the congregation of Platte
county teachers at that place on a call
of the Teachers' Association at which
the Columbus city schools were duly
"We had always supposed until we
came to Platte county that a school
ma'am was a young lady that was a
sort of a girl of the period, liked
buggy rides, moonlight nights, senti
ment, etc., and we were surprised
that 'the schools of the county,' 'modes
of discipline,' and kindred subjects
should be the chief subject of conver
sation. Not even Humphrey, with
its rural attractions, had the interest
necessary to draw their minds from
the all-absorbing theme of school
work. Being rusty in modern school
modes and appliances, we were as a
pupil sitting at the master's feet,
drinking in words of learning and
wisdom. Humphrey invites you to
repeat the visit."
The Platte county Teachers As
sociation will hold its monthly meet
ing at the Lost Creek school house,
Friday evening, December 5th. It is
the aim of the association to hold
these meetings in different parts of
the county, to give all our members
and frieuds an opportunity to attend.
In this way we hope to promote the
cause of education. Come one and
all, listen to our papers, and take a
part in our discussions. These meet
ings are not only for the teachers,
but for all those interested in the
cause of education. Our program
will be as follows. Paper How to
teach Geography, by Miss M. E. Mc-
Gath. Select reading Mr. O'Brien.

of t". S. history in our public schools,

gradual increase in the average at

most regular and attentive will ap
preciate the surprises that may await
them. Let no one neglect the little
ones who attend Sunday School, but
may all prepare a memento of some
kind for them.
At the Opera House Friday
evening, November 22st, 1884, Rose
and Edmund Lisle, the eastern dra
matic stars, supported by H. Cecil
Arnold, the eminent character actor,
will appear In the beautiful military
play in fonr acts entitled, "Shiloh ; or
the Spy of Icksburg." The enter
tainment will be given nnder the
auspices of Baker Post No. 9, G. A.
R. The Fremont papers speak
highly of the entertainment at that
place, since when the advance agent
informs us the company has been
greatly strengthened by a number of
professional artists from the east.
Turn out and give the G. A. R's.
The Democracy-of Columbus had
a great rejoicing Wednesday night of
last week over the result of the presi
dential election. The speech at the
Opera House was made by Geo. L.
Miller of the Omaha Herald, and was
very well received by the democracy.
The only part of his speech that might
be called argumentative, referred to
the doctrines of the centralization of
the government, and to state rights.
He denounced the theory of Hamil
ton and commended that of Jefferson,
but did not expatiate largely upon the
origin of the pretended right of nulli
fication, secession, &c. It would be
well, as the Doctor suggested, for
' . . .i
young men to study tne two tneones
of government, especially in the light
of the facts ot the last thirty years,
and make up their minds whether
this is a nation of people or a com
pact of states ; whether a citizen of the
United States has any rights that the
states or the people of any state
ought not to be bound to respect;
whether the laws of the United States
may be nullified and set at nought, at
the pleasure of any state that may see
fit to declare that they will no longer
remain in the compact.
The Nance County Journal lends
its endorsement to what this paper
recently had to say of some freight
charges on a car-load of apples
shipped over the U. P. branch to
Fullerton, transferred at this point
from the B. & M., by quoting the
article in full and commenting in the
following forcible manner :
"As public carriers the railroad
companies have no business to vent
their 6pite on one another by plun
dering tne public; and wmle, no
doubt, this man could recover the full
amount of over-charge, it coald not
be done without delay and expense.
And it behooves our state legislature,
at its coming session, to take measures
to teach the railway companies that,
while their rights are to be respected
of all men, the people will not sub
mit to highway robbery on the part j
of the roads. Right is right, and the
railroads are entitled to a just and
liberal compensation for the faithful
performance of their contracts in the
carrying business, but when they as
sume the character of public plun
derers, it is time for the lawfully con
stituted powers that be to round up
these corporations, comb them down,
as it were, and establish the boun
dary lines of their pasture, making it
a penal offense for them to forage be-
1 yond the prescribed limits."

In Columbus or at Genoa, where his

Mr. Jas. Glynn left the city Friday
last for Valpariso, Indiana, where he
goes to commence a course of study
in the law college of that place with
a view to fitting himself for the
legal profession. The young man
has been a resident of this city for
several months, coming here from
Galena, Illinois, and has labored dil
igently at his trade of carpenter at
the same time he has devoted his
leisure hours to study in fitting him
self for the profession he wishes to
adopt. We believe he has in his
mental and physical make-up the
kind of stuff of which successful men
are made that he has set out with
the determination to win.
