Dr. D. T. Martyn and son returned
Saturday last from their visit to the
Exposition. Irve Latham stopped to
visit at Springfield, I1L, and was ex

many friends were more pleased to
see him return looking hale and
hearty and ready for business than his
partner, Dr. Schug, upon whom the
work of a large practice during a
sickly period has fallen during the
absence of his associate.
At St. Francis Church, Tuesday
morning, Feb. 3d, '85, at potifical
hiirh mass cereniduy, the Rev. Father
Serafiu officiating, Mr.Wm. T.Walker
was united in marriage to Miss Jen
nie A. Condon. The morning was a
little lowery, but before the hour for
the ceremony had arrived the sun had
rolled back the clouds and appeared
to glorify with its bright, warm rays
the happy event, a beautiful augury
of a bright and happy future for the
young couple thus uniting their des
tinies for life.
The bride is a daughter of Daniel
Condon, of this city, having resided
here for about eighteen months past,
a resident of the county, however, for
a number of years. She has made
manv warm friends since coming to
Columbus, and is awarded by all that
respect and esteem which is due to a
true and noble womanhood.
The bridegroom is also a resident
of tho city, is one of the rising young
men of the place, and has the braun
and brain to carve for himself a name
among the earners of fame and for
tune, and make a worthy companion
for the beautiful bride he has chosen.
The Journal extends its hearty con
gratulations. TAXXAHILL WISE.
Private intelligence conveys to the
Joukxal the news that on January
29tb, 'So, at the residence of the bride's
mother, Mrs. Mary Wise, Mr. John
Tannahill of this city was married to
Miss Emma Wise, of Dubuque, Iowa,
by the Rev. Krinklow of the Metho
dist parsonage, and that the happy
couple immediately started on a visit
to the bride's sister in the southern
part of the state of Iowa. Farther
information on the subject says the
lady who has captured .our John has
been a teacher in the schools of the
city of Dubuque for the past eight
years and is highly respected. For
the groom the Joukxal can say that
he represents the honest, sterling and
reliable manhood that is at once a
credit and a benefit to the community
in which they live.
The city schools were closed last
Thursday until Feb. 9th, next Mon
day. This action on the part of the
school board was taken at the recom
mendation of the physicians of the
city as a precautionary measure
against the spread of diphtheria which
had become prevalent The decision
to recommend such a step on the part
of the board was arrived at through a
consultation-of the leading medical
talent of the city, and in view of the
experience which has come to some
of our neighboring towns from the
dread disease, the- spread of which
was doubtless largely augmented
through the schools, the action would
seem a wise one. ey me ume uie

think they will bare the disease ander

spread, if doe precaution is observed,

ST. MARY'S HOSPITAL AND ST. FRAN
A Reporter Makes a Visit to tke Oae
mad a Call TJpoa tke Otker.
One day last week having occasion
to inquire of Dr. Evans, who has
charge of -the county patient3 at St,
Mary's Hospital, about a certain case
in the charity ward, ye reporter was
invited by the Doctor to ride down
with him and see for himself. He did
so and was kindly shown through the
From a healthy, practical stand
point, It is possibly safe to say that
the county charges are comfortable
and well cared for, and that in no
county in the state do the paupers, and
particularly the unfortunate sick and
crippled subjects receive more humane
care and attention than they do at the
hands of the Sistera of St. Mary's
Hospital. In this respect, at least,
Platte county is fortunate in a home
for her charity subjects.
A charity hospital is not exactly an
inspiriting place to visit, but if among
the readers of the Journal there
should chance to be any who are
given to repining over the fancied
hardness of their lot, they might visit
the place with advantage. There can
be found cases of human misery and
suffering which have got down to the
very hard-pan of reality. No weak
liver or imagination about it. A con
trast of the fancied with the real ia
what some persons heed to convince
them that their life in reality has been
cat in pleasapt places after all, if they
will only tbiuk so.
A short call was made at St. Fran
cis Academy, also under the charge of
the Sisters. The Academy ha3 in at
tendance this winter about one hun
dred pupils, of whom about twenty
are boarders and fifteen charity schol
ars. Of the one hundred in attend
ance a large majority are from Co
lumbus and Platte county, the balance
from adjoining counties. The Sister
Superior informed the reporter that
the general health of the scholars
during the winter has been remarka
bly good, and in this connection it
may be considered timely to remark
that the building is admirably adapted
to preserving good health in being
thoroughly ventilated in all its apart
ments, a matter too often neglected in
our public school buildings.
Notice is hereby given that at a
meeting of the board of directors of
the Columbus Driving Park and Fair
Association, held Jan. 17tb, 'So, it was
unanimously agreed that the capital
stock of the Association shall be in
creased to the sum of ten thousand
dollars. Therefore, notice is hereby
given that a meeting of the stock
holders of said Arsociation will be
held at the Engine House in Colum
bus at 2 o'clock p. m., on the 21st day
of February, 1S85, for the purpose of I
considering the said proposition.

In these times of general un
healthfulncss and particularly on
account of the prevalence of diphthe
ria, every possible s.initary measure
for self protection ehould be resorted
to. To this end disinfectants may be
used with untold advantage; and for
this purpose physicians agree that
chloride of lime i3 at once the cheap
est and most effective. Decaying and
fungus growth of vegetable matter
should be removed from the cellars
and the disenfectant freely used, and
also upon garbage pile which have
accumulated during the winter, and
from which, during these days of
alteruate freezing and thawing more
or less deadly vapors escape from the
decomposing mass, the same purify
ing agent should be used.

In the Journal of January 7th, I
gave a truthful statement concerning
the letting of side-walk contract. In
addition 1 have this to offer:
On the 14th of December, I saw
Hon. J. E. North, on the train be
tween this place and Omaha. He
said to me, "the city council will
meet next "Wednesday night to give
you the contract for building side
walk. As they did not mention the
kind of pay in their call for bids they
have set "Wednesday night for that
On the 16th of December I saw the
Hon. Mayor of the city in his office
and without mentioning or speaking
of side-walk to him he said the best
way for the council to do will be to
allow you ten per cent, above your
bid as the pay will be in Special City
It is plain from what these gentle
men told me that the city council on
the night of the 13th of December
bad decided to let the contract to me,
the lowest responsible bidder.
The city council gave me qo notice
that my bid was not according to
specification and there was nothing
said about it but by Mr. Miner, and
he is not a mouth-piece for the city
Mr. Miner has chronic misrepre
sentation, not only on sidewalk but
on bell-tower. I know all about that
tower. I built it myself by the dir
ection of Mr. Lockner. The facts in
the case are these : Mr. Lockner and
I were talking at the west end of the
corn crib which is by the side of
Messrs. Jse3gi & Schupbach's ele
vator. While we were talking of the
probable expense of the tower, Mr.
Miner come to us and I requested
Mr. Lockner to have Mr. Miner es
timate on the work and material for
the tower. In four days after I saw
Mr. Lockner again and I asked him
how much Mr. Miner wanted for
building the bell-tower, and he said
$198.20 cash. I then told Mr. Lock
ner I would be glad to build it for
1175 00 cash. Mr. Lockner said he
could not let it by the job. He said,
"go on as you have commenced."
"Having other work to do I could
not work at the tower all the time.
I therefore reported from time to
time on pieces of paper to Mr. Jezg:
the amount, of work and material
furnished. From these pieces of
paper an itemized bill was made and
presented to the city council. For
or in payment of this bill they gave a
city warrant the cash value of which
i3 $163 80. being 534.40 less than
Mr. Miner's letter places the coun
cil in rather a bungling situation. I
think if I were a member of the coun
cil I would give Miner a nickel to
keep quiet. It is unnecessary to
quote his letter. Let the public read
it as it is, not as he probably intended
it. J D. Brewer.
