At the last re-union G. W:
Kibler of this county met an old
comrade, John Reed, now living in
Douglas county, whom he had not
seen since he carried him off the
battle field at Jonesboro, eight miles
from Atlanta, on the Macon railroad,
wounded while tearing up the track,
so wounded that he couldn't help
himself. The meeting: was a verv
cordial one on both sides, and many
an incident of march and battle and
camp was rehearsed.
John Dillon, the celebrated come
dian, under the management of Geo.
W. Walters, is booked for the Opera
House, this city, Oct. 18th and 19th ;
Nellie Walters, under same manage
ment, Oct. 28th and 29th. When the
managers of the Opera House Co.
succeed in securing such talent, gen
erally known to be above the average,
Columbus theatre goers should turn
out and show their appreciation, with
crowded houses. Dillon played here
several years ago and was considered
"A, No. 1."
The Omaha Kcpublicrn says that
a company with a capital stock of
120,000 has been formed in Omaha
for the purpose of sinking a shaft to
the depth ot 3,000 feet, with a view
to obtaining either coal, gas or oil,
and, if possible, of thus settling the
question of cheap fuel in Omaha.
Arrangements have been made with
W. M. Martin, of Findlay, Ohio, to
take charge of the enterprise and
put down the hole. Something
similar to this would be a most ex
cellent thing for Columbus.

A force o! masons is al baud, un
der the fciijiervisioii ot a very capable
man, Mr. fc. I Jeter, to erect the new
depot here, ami the coal chutes,
both of which structures have long
beeu badly needed for the better
transaction of the company's business
at this point.
Tbe depot is to be located between
Eleventh and Twelfth streets, be
tween Olive and North, aud also
between the main track aud that of
tbe Omaha, Niobrara & Black Hills
It is to be of stone, with pressed
brick aud red saud-stone trimmiugs.
It will be 97 ft. 2 iu. long, and 34 ft.
2 in. wide. Tbe circular end will
face east, and a bay window on the
south side, facing the main track.
This part ot the structure will be 38
ft. 8 in. wide.
The building a handsome
ouo, iu appearance resembling tbe
one just completed at Valley. Mr.
Jeter thinks that if the material ar
rives as needed, the buildiug will be
euclosed this mouth.
At the same lime work will go
forward on the coal chutes, the
plaua lor which we have not yet
seeu ; we luaru that these will be
sutiicieul to supply tue increasing
demands ot the tuaiu aud brauch
roads lor years, aud consequently
they must be of ample capacity, and
with all the uppliauces for the quick
loading aud unloading of large
quantities ot coal. This btrudure
will be located uear the Uompuu's
water tank.

We hope these are hut the begin
ning ol a long series of impsove
lueulrf here by the Union Pacific
Company. Their business on the
brauch lines to Norfolk, to Albion,
to Fullertou aud Cedar Rapids, all
radiating at this point, has grown
beyond all expectation in the lime
since these lines were constructed,
and the outlook for the years to come
is equally good, so that, with the
settlement of the country and the
capacity of the tributary regiou for
farm products, almost doubling each
year, it becomes an easy problem to
figure the great importance of this
city as a railroad center iu the uear

will be use for all of them.

As to hogs, tbe breeds represented
were, Berkshire, Poland Chiua aud

Mrs. M. Brugger took a premium
on 5 lbs. of honey.
Mrs. J. N. Heater had a display of
300 lbs. of while comb honoy, which

county, state or national exhibit in
tbe world. One wishing to become
conversant with the art of bee-culture
could here see all tbe latest applian
ces used in tbe business, such as
smokers, surplus foundations, empty
frames, latest patent devices for cag
ing tbe queen bees, drono excluders,
honey extractors, etc.
In the women's departmentwas a
multitude of articles manufactured
and used by tbe ladies, and entirely
"too numerous to mention." Andrew
Mattis bad tbe first and only display
of dried apples ever made by Platte
county, and we noticed Mrs. W. A.
McAllister's name conspicuous on the
award list for jellies, preserves, etc.,
she also taking 1st premium and the
Journal's special premium on bread
(hop rising), Mrs. Wm. Thurston
getting the same for bread (salt

Gen'l. Sup',. S. O. Raymond, Trcas.
John Stauffer and tbe gate-keepers,
Taylor and Wallace, did their work
in excellent shape, but tbe bulk of
tbe actual work done, in makiug
preparations and looking after every
thing fell upon the industrious Sec
retary, John G. Routson, with a good
counsel back of him, R. II. Henry.
Further particulars we give next
The entire receipts were $1,147.
The weather was all that could be
desired, and hereafter there will be
pronamy no question of success, as
interest is increasing in Platte Co.
