The frowst Bridge.
Tbe bridge bond election is to
take place next Saturday, Aug. 28.
Briefly, tho proposition is to vote
$7,000 in bonds of the city, payable iu
twenty years at 6 per cent., with an
option, on tho part of the city, to pay
atter 15 years iroin date.
By the terms of submission the
bonds are "to aid in tbe construction
of a wagon bridge across the Loup in
The proposed bridgo is beyond the
limits of the city, and it is a recogniz
ed hardship that the city should be
compelled to be at the entire expense
of so costly a structure.
If the bonds shall be voted, we be
lieve it is now understood that the
authorities are not to issue them un
less Columbus township and the
county, one or both, contribute a
reasonable share towards the struct
ure. Tbe Journal thinks the be3t policy
with reference to the bridge (whether
it shall be built by city, township or
county, or all together) is to do, each
year, with the last, cheap temporary
structure we can afford until such
time as we can provide a permanent
bridge, which, for the Loup river,
means a very costly one.
It the $7,000 bonds are voted there
Is no doubt whatever but the proper
disposition will be made of the pro
ceeds by tbe Mayor and Couucil.
A meeting has been called for to
morrow (Thursday) eveniug, at

A terrible sensation was pro
duced last Tuesday morning by the
announcement that a black villain
had gone to the house of Mins Jane

ing, broke in the door, and by his
threats of taking her life, and brnte
force, had committed rape upon her
person. She was so ill from the
effects of the outrage that she was
unable to let any one know about
it until Nicol McPherson's little girl
went there on Monday. Miss Kings
ton sont her for her father
and when he went to her house she
told him the story and had him come
to town and have a negro named
Jake Thomas arrested and held for
tbe crime. This was doue and he
now is in jail awaiting his examina

The Buffalo (Wyoming) Echo has
this to say of a Columbus youug lady
recently employed to teach iu the
High School at that place :
"For first assistant, Miss Adelaide
Thurston, formerly of Nebraska, but
now teaching the Piney school, is the
successful applicant. The young
lady has manifested nnusual capa
bilities as an instructor, and is pos'
sessed of rare good sense. The
student is prone to imitate the ex
ample set by the tutor, and in Misb
Thurston's care the Buffalo young
people will acquire habits of true
politeness and gentility. We predict
that this selection of tho board will
receive hearty endorsement by tho
Monday afternoon a lad of six
teen, with beastly inatiuctri, enticed a
child three ymrs old into a secluded
place, tr tho purprno probably of
committing iu miunut.tble outrage
upon her. The child get out of his
clutches ami w:is saved from outrage,
not by any knowledge of evil, of
course, hut by an instinct of right.
Parents cannot know how near to
ruiu their youngest girls may be, aud
no words cau express the shame for
humanity, and indignatiou against a
boy, a young man, who allows his
evil propensities to gain the mastery
over right principle. This boy may
well be thankful that the crime he
meditated was not perpetrated, if he
values his life at all. We omit uames
on account of the families.
