The many friends of Bob. Clark
in this city will sympathise with aa
affliction which overtook him last
Friday ia -Omaha, where he receatly
took a position in the employ of U. P.
R. R." Co. as telegraph operator.
While skating at tha rink he met with
a fall which fractured a leg in three
places below the knee. Dr. Schug
was called down by telegram Friday
last at Bob's, request, and with
the assistaace of the U. P. physicians
at that place, reduced the fractures
and left his patieat doing nicely the
next day.
The new U. P. time-table which
went into effect Monday last makes
a general slight change in the arrival
and departure of trains at this point.
Going east, No. 2 now arrives at 4:07
a. m., one minute later, and No. 4 at
12:45 p. m., twenty-three minutes
later than the old time. West-bound,
No.' 1 arrives at 12:07 a. m., one
minute later, and No. 3 at 2 :58 p. m.,
twenty-seven minutes earlier than
former time. The arrival and de
parture of the two branch trains ie
regulated accordingly to connect
with trains No. 4 and 3, east and west
bound, and will consequently leave
here a few minutes earlier ia the
Monday last John Doerscb, liv
ing about 12 miles north of Colum
bus, a brother-in-law of .Wra. Hage
man, of this city, met with a serious
and painful accident from the bursting
of a gun, which he was ia the act of
discharging previous to bringing it to
Itown for repairs. The discbarge
burst the gun at the breech, tearing
away the thumb and the entire thumb
partion of the hand. After the acci
dent which scattered a goodly por
tion of his hand to the four winds of
heaven, Mr. Doersch walked a mile
aad a half to -a neighbor's aad with
no other stimulant than a cup of coffee
rode to town and wentto the office
of Drs. Martyn A Schug, where the
injured member was cared for and
dressed. The next day he was walk
ing about upon the streets.
The time has come when Ne
braska farmers who want to make the
most of the advantages offered for
getting the very largest profit ont of
their calling will do well to pay mora
attention to the quality of the stock
whfch they raise. In past years this
has not been so much a necessity, for
reasons that are obvious and are in
cident to the settlement of every new
country. But henceforth the success
ful farmer will be the one who, when
he has stock of any kind to sell, can
accommodate the demand for good
blood. "Blood will tell" in the brute
creation as well as in the human
family, and pays proportionately as
well in a chicken as in a cow. At a
sale the other day, fair grade Ply

A bold burglary was committed
in the city Thursday night on the
hardware store of Ernst A Schwarz,
which resulted ia the laas of abeat
$200 worth of property, coadstiag of,
four fine breech-loading guns. The
glass of the show wiadow was broken
and the guns taken out through the
aperture, the break beiag made at the
end of the window, next to the door
way and the guns takea from tha
rack as fares an -arm wanld reach.
The robbery was a dariag oae from tha
fact that it seems to have been com
mitted shortly after the miastrel
show was over, and there were a
good many people still oa'the street.
At abont half-past elevea, Mr.
Yogel, who keeps a restaaraat next
door, heard what he now supposes ta
have been the breaking of the wia
dow, while?' the lights in his place
were still burning, and the street oc
cupied with people coming aad
going. 'In fact the act eeem reckless,
as ia nine liases ia taa, with a watch

Tha last Democrat contained an
article with the sensational heading,
"Hauliag Down the American Flag,"
professing to give certain facts in re
gard to occurrences at the High
School building, March 4tb, and re
porting Prof. Cramer as "saying that
no democratic lag could float over
that echeel house while he waa in
charge," Ac. Our information is that
aa Wadaaaday morning last Prof.
Cramer foand two boys on the roof
f tha echool building putting up a
tag aad that ha' told them to come
dowa, which they did.. Doubtless,
there waa no thought, at the. time, of
iaaagaration day or of politics at all,
oa Mr. Cramer's part, aad, we pre
sume no expreesioa of political or
other opialoa whatever. . Boys have
freqaeatly been on the roof of the
building, and of course are ordered
down, aad we presume this ia done,
not because the boys are repabllcaaa,
democrats, aati-monopolista,or green
hackers, or because Arthar or Cleve
land ia president, or because they
hare aa American' flag or aay other
kiad of flag or device, but simply in
the interests of good order on the
echool grounds. Any one who haa
atteaded echool knowa how auch
things are.' We are informed that
later la the day, other lads were en
deavoring to aay something suppoaed
to be emblematical, in the way of a
flag at half-mast, and draped, which
waa, of course declared out of order.
We have noticed that .in associa
tions for special purposes, such, for
iastaace, aa the various secret orders,
it Is tha universal custom, so far aa
we kaow, to forbid the discussion of
political and religious questions, men
well knowing that such discussions
are usually attended by bjiter feeling
calculated to break ap their organiza
tions, aad if this be so as to men, why
ahoald aay one, inside of school or
out, object to the same course in re
gard to our public schools? Mr.
Cramer haa taught school here aa
principal aad superintendent for eight
years, and ia well known to this
community as a solid man in every
way, coaservatlve, careful, slow
spoken, just, in language and act, and
this reference to the Democrat's arti
cle would not have beea made except
that it placed Mr. Cramer in a false
light with those who are not acquaint
ed with him.

Nearaalca atat Detective
It appears that the initial steps in
the movement for a law providing
for the incorporation of a State De
tective Association were taken in
Columbus, J. C. McMahon, who has
something more than a local reputa
tioa in the line of detective work, pro
curing the draft of the bill passed
by the late legislature. The bill, to
which was attached an emergency
clause which provides that it shall
become a law immediately upon its
pasaage, makes it lawful for a number
of men to associate themselves to
gether for the purpose of the detec
tion and punishment of crime. 'Before
receiving a charter a bond must be
given in the sum of $10,000 by each
member, signed by all the members
of the association, with sureties equal
to two for each member. After re
ceiving a charter, members of the
association, under the supervision of
a chief and secretary, whose signa
tures will be required to all official
documents, may enter upon their
dnties with authority equal to a
sheriff aud extending to any portion
of the state.
A bond has already been filed with
sufficient names to organize, J. C.
McMahon will be the chief and the
second principal office of the state
located here, with headquarters at
With the class of secret officials that
the provisions of the bill would seem
to warrant, the ends of justice should
be furthered by such an organization.
The democrats of this progressive
town do not seem to be overlyjiun
gry nor yet so very thirsty for office
aa has generally been attributed to the
waiting, longing and at last dominant
party. Present indications seem to
warrant the conclusion that a call for
the uplifted hands of all who expect
to get the postoffice would result
about thus :
Just how many index fingers would
puncture the atmosphere on a call of
those who would be willing to repre
sent Uncle Sam in this official capac
ity we are unable to conjecture. Co
lumbus ambition shoots high. Put us
down for consulships, territorial gov
ernorships and such like honorous
positions, and possibly a collector of
revenue aspirant or- so. Later
Since writing the above new de
velopements have loomed up in the
somewhat troubled horizon of post
office affairs in Columbus, and at
least one more aspirant has "bobbed
np serenely" from among the ranks of
the faithful, and petitions are thicker
than flies in dog days. The situation
may be summed up about as follows :
W. N. Hensley and M. Weaver, dem

The residence of W. T. Callaway
at Bellwood, February 17tb, was the
scene of a happy gathering of friends
of the family, the occasion being the
celebration of the birthday of Grand
ma Cullaway, who upon that day
attained the ninety-fourth year of her
age. It was designed that the affair
should be a pleasant surprise to the
old lady, and in this respect as well
as in being a most pleasant social
commingling for all, report says it
was a complete success.
The following persona were pres
ent: Rev. Buckuer and wife, F. M.
Wimberly and wife, J. C. Hager and
wife and Mrs. Vate, of Bellwood;
Mr. and Mrs. Burcb, Mr. and Mrs.
Chadwick aud Darcus Callaway of

Mrs. Turner, of David City; Mrs. W.
T. Rickly, Miss Lizzie Davis, Mrs.
Geo. Clother, Mrs. Wm. Speice, of
Columbus; Mrs. Charles Matthews,
of Genoa.
As an illustration of old-time poe
try and also of the retentive memory
of Grandma Callaway, we give a copy
of somo veraes which Bhe memorized
when shu was fourteen, and which
she had not read In many years :
There was a man in ancient times
Our Savior doth inform us,
Whose pomp and grandeur aad whose
Were great and very nutn'rous .
This man fared sumptuously each day.
In purple and fine linen;
He eat, be drank, and scorned to pray
And spent his life In sinning.
Poor Lazarus lying at his gate
To help himself unable,
He for the fragments humbly wait
That fell from his rich table.
Not one mite from his rich store
Did this rich worldling send htm;
The dogs through pity licked his soras
Most ready to befriend him.
At length death came, this poor man died
By angels' hands was carried
Away to Abraham's bosom
Where all his sorrows ended.
The rich man died, was burled too,
But Oh ! his dreadfnl station;
With heaven and glory in his view
He landed in damnation.
He cries, "Oh I father Abraham,
Send Lazarus with cool water,
For I am tormented in this flame
With a consuming torture."
Says Abraham's son, "Remember well
You once did goods inherit
And now you're doomed to, death and hell
Because you would not share it."
"Oh! father Abraham, deign to hear
This one, my last desire:
There are Ave brothers in my father's
A hasting fast to ruin.
Send Lazarus there to arouse
And hinder their undoing."
"Your brothers have the means or grace,
The prophets, too, and Moses sufficient,
If they choose good ways to overcome
whatever opposes.
