Two horse thieves passed through town Friday on their road to Lincoln. The walls of the new schooi building have been completed and the same will soon be enclosed. Arrangements are being made by which those desiring can proenre costumes of F. W. Ott for the Band's mask ball New Year's eve. A. & M. Turner have moved their book and music store to the Journal building on 11th st. They are selling their stock of toys at cost, to close them out. Morrissey Bros. & Weaver have put in a steam engine in connection with their elevator, and also milling apparatus for grinding chopped feed and corn meal. About all our merchants have learned that the best method of ad vertising is in the columns of the newspaper or by poster or circular, exclusively theii own. Anthony Keller shows us an egg weighing four ounces, laid by one of his Plymouth Rock hens, that is res ponsible for one of this kind every other day. Valuable bird. From reports from neighboring towns it seems that Columbus is leading this winter in paying all the market will bear for the marketable products, especially corn and hogs. Everybody buying a dollar's worth of toys from John Heitkemper will be entitled to one chance in a drawing for a beautiful, large doll to come off on Christmas Eve. 31-4t In our description of Mr. J. II. Reed's new barn, in another place in these columns, we omitted to mention the fact that Mr. Fred. Blasser was tho efficient builder of the same. Chas.Zieglcrsaith the base burn er they bought will keep fire forty eight hours with one hod full of coal. It is the prize stove exhibited by Krause, Lubker & Co. at the fair this fall. 5-33-tf Even collectors are not. happy these times, and complain that ex pense bills of the officers are about all the returns they are able to get in even when extreme measures are resorted to. The first snow of the season in these parts fell last Saturday. The fall was slight, and if there is any good result it may be in making the stock fields temporarily less danger ous to cattle. Parties knowing themselves in debted to the undersigned and whose account is past due. will please pay the same before Jan. 1st, 18S5, or it will be collected by law. Julius Rasmusscn. 34-3 A runaway team attached to a load of lumber made things de cidedly lively on 13th street on Wed nesday of last week, but did no ser ious damage. Did not learn who was the owner. A dozen eggs or a pound of butter is worth more than a bushel of corn, and double the amount of these marketable products and it will command more cash or its equivalent than a bushel of wheat. Rev. Father Smyth of O'Connor sends us a renewal of subscription with these words of cheer: "The Journal is always a welcome visitor, bringing as it does every week, tid iugs of friends never to be forgotten." All parties knowing themselves indebted to the undersigned, will please call and settle on or before Dec. 30th, 'S4, after that date all un settled accounts will be placed in the hands of a collector.

All ac counts not paid by the aforesaid time will be placed in hands for collection without fear or favor. J. B. Dels man. 32-4 Regular services at Grace church on next Sunday, the fourth in Advent, also St. Thomas' Day, Dec. 21. Christmas services at 11 a. m., Thursday Dec. 25. The S. S. will participate in the services of that day. The public are cordially invited to be present. The Columbus Cornet Band will give a mask ball on New Year's eve at the Opera House. The ball is be ing gotten up for the purpose of a holiday good time and to aid the Band to pay for a set of new silver horns, five pieces of which have al ready been purchased. Our hog dealers were kept busy last week. D. Anderson paid in one day to three farmers over $1,100 for fat hogs, and paid ont the same day $1,700 for hogs alone. He also ship ped out in ten days about fourteen cars, and this only about two-thirdB of what was shipped from Columbus in the same length of time. Mr. John S. Kerr, who some five or six years ago, with his family and team spent a few days with friends in tbiB city, then on bis way from Cadiz Ohio, to Wyoming Territory, is now the owner of a large and valuable ranch, and was chosen at the recent election to represent his county in the Territorial legislature. Grit and true merit is putting John at the bead of the class of weatera pioneers. Toys At cost At A. & M. Turner's. In a talk with one of the city school board, the'other day, ye repor ter learned that the city schools were doing excellent work this winter and consequently giving good satisfac tion. The probability is that about the first of January the high school department will remove to the new building. Report of H. E. S. S. or Sunday, Dec. 14, '84. Attendance 58. Com mittees were appointed to arrange for the Christmas tree, Christmas evening. More teachers are needed. Who will come forward and assist in instructing the youth? Song prac tice on Tuesday and Thursday, at 4 :30 p. m. at church. A dispatch to Grandma North from her eon, the Major, last week, announced that on the 9th instant, the boat containing the Wild West outfit 6auk in the Mississippi near Rodny, Miss. Of course the dispatch could not contain minute particulars but there was no loss of life, and, it ie concluded, no serious loss of property. It is a little late in the season for big records in wild goose shooting, but this is an open winter and there may be plenty of opportunity for sports who would like to beat that of August Ifflin who relates that inside of two hours he bagged twenty birds. The exact locality of this wind-fall of luck might be of interest to some of our sportsmen readers, but ye re porter neglected to note it. The public schools will close Friday, Dec. 19, for the Holiday vaca tion. To-day public examinations will begin in all the grades. Friday afternoon beginning at two, literary exercises of a pleasing character will be held in the different rooms. It is hoped that parents and others will visit the schools during these exami nations and look into the work. The winter term begins Jan. 5, '85. Some "Smart Aleck" in Custer county, possibly with a desire to emulate the enterprise (?) of some of our daily newspaper reporters in get ting up sensational lies, has been humbugging the local press of that county with a fictitious account of a horrible murder, which has been cop ied extensively by the press of the State. That fellow's reportorial pro clivities Bhould be summarily snuff ed out. The Gordon Press, published at Gordon, Sioux county, Nebraska, mentions the fact that a B. & M. rail road official recently spent several days at that place and opines that he was there in the interests of that road. It does not seem improbable that the B. & M. may conclude to branch out into the new northwest from some point where it has tapped the U. P., and why may not that point be Columbus, and the lime the year of 1885? Wm. Smith returned Saturday last from Lincoln. He gives a favor able account of the capital city and the improvements made this season. The new German House, diagonally opposite from the Commercial, is des tined to eclipse that institution, hav ing all the modern conveniences of a first-class hotel. The water works, just completed, will give Lincoln ample protection against fire and fur nish abundance of pure water for household purposes. It would appear that a party from David City recently tried successfully a little confidence racket in this city. By representing that he bad money in the National Bank of David City and was a little short of cash, through the endorsement of an acquaintance here, who believed him to be an honest man in a little strait for money, he succeeded in getting one of our prominent citizens to endorse his draft, which draft the said citizen was subsequently obliged to pay. The Platte County Teachers' As sociation will meet at the west end school house Columbus, Jan. 9th, '85. All teachers and patrons interested in the school work, are earnestly solicit ed to be present and listen to the fol lowing programme: Music; M. Brugger, paper, method of study ; George Harmon, paper, writing and drawing; Mazie Carrig, select read ing; J. J. H. Reedy, paper, book keeping in the public schools; M.J. Hogan, paper, bow to teach arithme tic. Music ; Edna Schrack, recitation ; Augustus Davis, paper, incentives to study. A lawyer the other day, in the trial of a suit here said that D. L. Brueu had been sent for to help out the case ; that Bruen, although a farm er, didn't do anything but read anti monopoly papers, of which he took more than anybody else In the county. It is true that David takes a great many papers and reads them, but he is also an industrious man otherwise, and the lawyer who undertakes to bamboozle bim on politics, will have to get up early in the morning, and eat whale for breakfast. Certain gen tlemen perhaps remember a contest they once had with Brnen and how it resulted. Thursday evening last Geo. B. Hardell, manager of the skating rink here, accompanied by his little son and several of the best skaters of the city, besides a number of young folks who joined the company for the purpose of a good time, took the train for Albion to be present on that night at a grand opening of the new rink at that place. Of those who may be mentioned as expert skaters were the Misses Emma Heeben, Mary Tschudy, Phoebe Phillips, Jennie Finnecy and little Enor Clother, Messrs. Fred. Mullen, Chas. Finnecy, Geo. Smith and Chas. Pearsoll. Altogether, the delegation nunbered about twenty persons. Fereoaal. W. M. Cornelius was at Ulysses last week on legal business. John Myer started Saturday to try bis fortune at the capitol city. Mr. John Penfield, bsnker of St. Edwards, was in the city last week. Judge R. L. Rossiter, of Platte Center, was in the city last Monday. Mrs. Walter Gat ward of Cedar Rapids is visiting friends in the city. Lon Miller started to Chicago Tues day morning with a shipment of cattle. S. A. Cooper and wife of Bellwood are guests in the family of W. B. Bacus. E. Johnson, with E. J. Baker, Run ning Water, Wyo., is home for the holidays. Frank Hagel, of Boone county, a former Columbus boy, is in the city visiting friends. Young David Chestnutwood is again a resident of the city, in the employ of F. W. Ott. J. G. Reeder and Harry Newman were the guests of the metropolis of Shell Creek last Friday. W. H. Winterbotham, of Genoa, was in the city last week and made this office a welcome call. Mrs. S. Button, of North Hebron, N. Y., has been visiting her daughter Mrs. Anna Galley for the past week. Sheriff Brown, of Seward was in attendance at the meeting of the State Association of Sheriffs held in the city last Thursday. Daniel Jenny has been troubled with a very angry felon for days past. It Is doubtful if Job was peatered with one of these pain-mills. J. E. North and wife started last Sunday morning for a visit to the exposition at New Orleans, expecting to be absent about two weeks. There was a family re-union at W. J. Belknap's last week, at which were present from abroad Mr. Belknap's brother with his wife, aud also his sister Mrs. Clayton. A. D. Walker returned last week from a trip through the northwest portion of the state. We understand he was seeking an advantageous in vestment in real estate. Jack Echols went to Albion Thurs day last to commence work on the school house at that place, the con tract for the painting of which was awarded to him on a bid. Mrs. F. W. Riemer will visit the exposition at New Orleans and also the home of her childhood some where in the Sunny South we be lieve in the state of Kentucky. Miss Foster, teacher of the Morse school, four miles west of the city, was taken suddenly very ill during school hours on Friday last, to the great alarm and distress of her scholars. Miss Clara Cook, kuown in this city from childhood as Clara Rickly, who recently joined her father at Dodge City, Kas., writes to frieuds here that she is well pleased with her new home. Dr. Bixby of the Nance County Journal was in the city last week and made us a pleasant call. He has the true idea of an editor's duty to guard the public against all manner of fraud by publishing facts. W. B. Backus, of the efficient corps of city teachers, has classes in the art of penmauship in the city and at the Bean school house, numbering twenty scholar, to whom he is giving excellent satisfaction. H. P. Coolidge started yesterday morning for Ida Grove, Iowa, to be present at a re-union of the Coolidge family. The family is quite numer ous, and will be united for the first time in seventeen years. Mrs. Zetta Cooper, who has been engaged in teaching the Humphrey school, has been compelled to take a vacation on account of ill health and is again in the city at the home of her sister, Mrs. W. B. Backus. David Duffy aud family of Alligan, Mich., arrived in the city lat week, and expect to make Nebraska their future home. Mr. Daffy has been a resident of this state before, and so much pleased with it as a temporary home, that now he comes to stay. Welcome. C. C. Valentine returned last week from his duties in the 9th judicial district as court reporter. He men tions as an interesting item in the court proceedings of Cedar City, Wheeler county, that three persons plead guilty to a charge of horse stealing. They were sentenced by Judge Tiffany to two years each in the pen. Miss Phosa McAllister, support ted by a first-class company, open their engagement at the Opera House, Friday night. The play selected is that magnificent love story of Marie Lovell, "Ingomar, the Barbarian." It is a rare treat to have one of the standard dramas presented here, and especially one by the gifted authoress. It is in happy contrast to the trash usually dished up, and even if devoid of the scenic effects and accessories worthy of the piece, it will be enjoy able if well rendered. Miss McAllis ter comes under the tongue of dis criminating report as an admirable actress. The St. Paul Press says, "She is the finest actress that has ever graced the stage in St. Paul." If this be true, her rendering of Parthenia should be the best we have ever beard here. The company is a large one and is highly spoken of by the eastern and southern press. The Salt Lake engagement was so great a success that it was extended one night be yond the season advertised. We trust our people will manifest their appre ciation of the standard drama by giving the McAllister company a crowded house. STUMPED. WMIck Aralies to the Yictlau of I Laii Week's Fallare. The Journal in its last week's issue merely mentioned the fact that Mrs. B. F. Stump, late milliner and dress maker in this city, had failed and that her stock of roods was in the hands of Oberfelder & Co., of Omaha, by authority of a chattel mortgage held by them. Since that time further facts in connection with the matter have been developed which will be of interest to the public, and also the fact has appeared that Mrs. Stumps list of creditors is much larger than was at first supposed, her liabilities aggregating, in round numbers, to her wholesale dealers and other claimants who have been represented here, to about $15,000, to say nothing of num berless bills for small amounts, which are in the back ground in utter hope lessness of realizing any portion of themselves in a scramble. The larg est claims were held by Oberfelder & Co., of Omaha, who were creditors to the amount of $2,900, Rosenheimer & Levis, St. Louis. $2,600, and Chas. McDonald. Omaha, $1,500. It would appear that Messrs. Oberfelder & Co. first became aware that their interests were in danger, and immediately set about securing themselves. They telegraphed their lawyers here on Sunday last and the next morning were in possession of the store by virtue of the mortgage before men tioned, and commenced to dispose of the goods. And right here let us re mark that for lightning rapidity in securing a debt by a mortgage and ultimately taking possession of the property, that record ia hard to beat, as the entire proceedings did not cover a lapse of more than twenty four hours. During the day every thing was serene and lovely for the fortunate claimant, and the goods went off at the sacrifice figures like hot cakes. On Tuesday attachment proceedings were instituted on behalf of Rail Thayer, Williams & Co., and ihe eager throng of seekers after bar gains wero compelled to await an adjustment. The claim of these par ties amounted to $247.88. Appraisers were appointed and goods sufficient to cover the claim were taken from' the stock, and again the doors were thrown open to the public. But the raking in of the shekels was once more interrupted on Wednesday, this time in the interest of Lederer, Strauss & Co., of Des Moines, Iowa, with a claim of $97C. A repetition of the preceding attachment proceedings followed, and the final kick against the order of things which had been instituted by the party of the first part, Messrs. O. & Co., was made by Chas. McDonald, of Omaha, who re pleviued a parcel of the goods and took them from the stock. This little cross-purpose business on the part of the different claimants will doubtless lead to considerable litiga tion and will consequently be fruit for the lawyers. It is understood to be the iutention of Oberfelder & Co. to sue the bond, in each instance. In the meantime the firm has bad clear sailing in the closing out proceedings. The Stumps made their advene in the business circles of this city some thing over two years and a half ago, and up to the very time of their un doing enjoyed the confidence of the best business talent of the community. There was a brach store at Ulysses, on the B. & M., and we believe a store at Norfolk, on the U. P., was also sup plied with stock from the store here, though having a business responsibil lity of its own. Mrs. Stump was the ostensible head of the business, and it seems to have been money which was undoubtedly her own, coming to her from her father, with which the bus iness here was first started, B. F. Stump, the husband, however, ap pearing to manage the business part of the enterprise, and attending prin cipally to buying the goods. He bad been absent from the city for several days previous to the climax in affairs, with the avowed intention, we be lieve, of looking up a new location for business. There are different opinions here as to the exact status of this affair, and as to who is responsible for the fail ure, and where the money has gone. The theory which seems to find most favor here, notwithstanding the fact that Mrs. S. professes to believe that her husband will come back is that a swindle was deliberately meditated by Stump, which theory seems justi fied by the fact that the vast amount of goods purchased have been dispos ed of in a very short time, there being left to the creditors here not to exceed $2,500, and we understand the branch store to be similarly short of availa ble assets. To this apparent swindle Mrs. S. may be an accessory and she may not. The Seward Reporter of last week mentions the fact that "a slick looking chap was around in the resi dence portion of the city selling sil-' ver-plated ware, which he carried around in his over coat pocket," which singular manner of conducting a business created suspicion that he was a crook and the sheriff took him in on suspicion that be was disposing of the fruits of a recent burglary at Omaha. No evidence could be ad duced to warrant bis detention, how ever, and he was turned loose, and later with a man who seemed to be acting as a partner in the enterprise he took the train for Columbus. Of course, every crook, dead-beat and scalawag that gets within hailing dis tance of Columbus, comes to see us, and will come until our people shut their hearts and their purses upon them, and make it impossible to live and thrive among us. All persons indebted to me, either by note or account must settle forth with, as after the 1st of January all claims will be placed in the hands of a collector. 34-2 (Dajt Condon. SACRIFICE SALE !
