The Democrat says the Journal
editor don't know how to punctuate.
That's 60 ; he don't know how to
punctuate by any such rule as governs
the punctuation of the following sen
tence, which occurs in tne paragrapn
containing the criticism :
"C. J. Garlow, who did the last
proof reading, while eating Bupper
overlooked the mistakes in two or
Do proof-reading and eating supper
naturally affiliate? or, did the writer
mean to say that the proof-reading
was done while eating supper? Such
criticism bears the impress of a "ten
derfoot." At the regular mouthly meeting
of the city council, held at the office
of Mayor Macfarland last Saturday
evening, J. C. Scott presented to the
honorable body a claim "for $2,500
damages, the same being unanimously
rejected. This is understood to be
the preliminary step to a suit for
damages against the city. Scott was
injured during the fall or early win-fpr-hr
falling into the old cellar hole
on the corner of 13th and Olive
streets, and of the fact that he was
seriously crippled by the accident,
we believe there is no question, but
as to the liability of the city for the
same, the courts will have to decide
in case the claim is pushed.
The preliminary hearing of John
Kortlarz, a young Bohemian me
chanic iu the employ of Louis
Schreiber, who was arraigned before
Police Judge Hensley last Friday,
charged with having committed a
felonious assault upon one John
Kryslinak with intent to kill, re
sulted in the discharge of the accused
on Saturday. The legal proceedings
were the outcome of the drunken
brawl among the Bohemians on the
bottom which was mentioned in the
Journal a short time since. To
have pulled the entire outfit at the
time and fined them for drunkenness
and disorderly conduct would have
about met the demands of the case.
The regular annual meeting of
the Columbus Driving Park and
Fair Association was held last Satur
day and the following officers
chosen for the ensuing year : Presi
dent, R. H. Henry; vice-president,
J. E. North; treasurer, Augustus
Lockner; secretary, J. G. Routson.
The board of directors, heretofore
consisting of ten 6tock-holders, will
hereafter consist of five, including the
officers elect, Mr. C. U. Sheldon, the
noted blooded stock raiser of the
county, being the fifth member of the
board. It was decided to hold the
next annual exhibit on September
8th, 9th, 10th and lltb, '85. The new
board are confident and hopeful and
fully determined to do their part
toward an exhibition that will be a
credit to the county.
The time has come for this lo
cality when a large area of territory
for stock to range over cannot be bad,
and fencing wild land for pasture
will not prove profitable even at the
present prices of raw lands, since the
wild grasses will not stand close
grazing, besides drying up too early
in the fall. The past has clearly
demonstrated these facts and it re
mains for the future to Bolve the
problem of tame pasture for all stock
raisers who would make the business
profitable. In this connection It will
be of interest to know, as we are in
formed by Mr. G. A. Kerr, of Metz,
that in several instances which have
come under his observation, tame
grasses even timothy and clover
have been successfully seededjipon
the wild land in its natural state by
scattering the seed upon the surface.
It is probably true, however, that
there are other varieties of tame
grasses which are better calculated
for the work of subduing the wild
nature of the prairie land, and which
will make nearly, if not quite as good

The pencil noticed in one of our
hardware stores the other day a
couple of prairie dogs, and was told
they -were destined by a gay and
festive drummer as a present to his
lady love down in the state of Tenn
essee. That mere noyelty frequently
doe3 wonders in glorifying some
very ordinary workB of nature and
art in this world we have almost
daily evidence, but this selecting a
dirty little prairie dog, a burrower in
the ground and a consorter with
enakeB, as a present for one's sweet
heart, is a very striking evidence of
the attraction that novelty has in the
eyes of some people. Of course it is
possible that the lady for whom these
delectable little pets are intended may
be an ardent and enthusiastic student
of natural history, in which event the
little prairie canines would be
charming, to be sure.
