The Schuyler Herald (Dniocratic)
takes a hand in the controversy be
tween "Farmer," a correspondent of the
Journal and D. Frank Davis, editor of
the Democrat, and says that D. Frank
Dans "has been a democrat to our per
sonal knowledge ever since he was old
enough to vote," etc., etc This is some
what evading the issue raised by Far
mer, as we understand it It seems to
be conceded all around, at least not dis
proved, so far as we have seen, that our
D. Frank Davis is the identical D.
Frank Davis who (about the time he
was 21 years old, may be a little before,
or a little after) was a candidate for su
perintendent of schools, before the Re
publican convention of Colfax county;
that he was defeated for that nomina
tion; that he shortly afterwards became
editor of the Herald, a democratic news
paper. Why beat about the bush. If it
was once a good thing to be a republi
can, though you afterwards quit "being
a republican," and are now really
ashamed that you quit, why not say so
"an honest confession is good for the
soul," and you will find quiek relief in
such a confession. If there was an over
w helming necessity which overcame you
a few days after your majority, that had
no appreciable effect upon you while you
were yet an infant in the eyes of the
law, just a few days previously, why not
say so, and make a virtue of necessity?
In either case Farmer's shafts, though
hitting the mark, would find no entrance,
because such a defence would render
you iron-clad. Though you are dis
posed not to take kindly to our office of
tutor, we cannot possibly refrain from
stretching out a helping hand, and en
deavoring, at least, to pull you out of
the mud die into which your youthful
indiscretion has plunged you. 0
From J. H. Sacrider of Monroe
township we learn that the bridge on
Cherry creek was carried away by the
freshet of the first; also the bridge near
Geo. Kerr's; that considerable damage
was done to millet that was cut and in
winrow; potatoes in patches in the low
places were washed out; Cherry creek,
near Mr. Sacrider's place, raised to the
depth of twenty feet; Mr. Crossett had a
cow drowned; at Isaac Kenyon's there
was two feet of water around the place,
and the hogs saved their prospective ba
con by climbing to the top of a straw
stack, where they found safety from the
flood; at Erwin Nickolson's an oats
stick was carried entire about one hun
dred yards and landed outside the
creek's bed; along the road between here
and Monroe you will see squashes,
pumpkins, watermelons, potatoes, etc,
right amqng the prairie grass, and ono
not knowing of the.flood would suppose
that these vegetables were produced on
the raw prairie along with the grass.
The City Council meet this, Wed

inside one, 2x4. The report of the ju
diciary committee in regard to amounts
of license on occupations was adopted
and the ordinance thus completed, or
dered engrossed for third reading. The
ordinance provides a license tax on
hawkers and peddlers of goods, $10 a
day; canvassers for fancy goods and
notions, $6 a day; druggists and licensed
saloons, each $50 a year; sewing machine
dealers or agents, commission stores or

G. W. Kibler came up to Lost Creek
last Friday near Pat Kelly's, and being
naturally a very cautious man, he meas
ured the depth of the stream by his own
corporosity before venturing in with his
his pomes. He waded till the water
reached his jacket, and would not fur
ther go, even at the exclamation of one
of tho women of a crowd who were on
tho dry railroad grade watching the
flood and the incident, to "Wade in, old
man." Kibler's army experience was
worth a good deal to him, and the "old
man" didn't wade in, else the writer
hereof and himself would have got a
We learn that one evening last week
it was discovered that some miscreant
who had doubtless been a visitor at the
place, had removed some oil cups on the
dynamo of Jaeggi & Schupbach, and
instead of oil, much needed to keep the
journal in good running order, some
sand had been put in its stead. It was
noticed that the light produced was un
steady, and an examination soon showed
the cause. It must have been done, evi
dently, by 6ome mechanic, at least, and
with wicked intent, for it would have
taken but a short time to greatly injure
The democratic organ at Platte

The Platte Center Argus (democrat
ic) thinks that "One .bad and unworthy
man on the ticket may be the millstone
which will down all the rest" This is a
very decent way or calling particular at
tention to the "personal habits" of the
proposed candidates, and will doubtless
help to secure the result aimed at bet
ter than a personal attack upon some
particular individual candidate.

inent citizen the other day ended with
these words: "Death loves a shining

In all the creations of man's genius no
two are alike. For the purpose intend
ed there are all degrees of merit, from
the poorest to the best The test of
merit is actual use, and, when you are to
be the purchaser, it is yourself that
should be satisfied, pleased, delighted
with your purchase. It happens that
these articles mentioned above are sold
mostly by canvassing agents. Some of
these canvassing agents are very fair and
attend strictly to the business of show
ing the good qualities of their own wares,
and, when necessary, the actual defects
of some others; all are by no means
bad; other canvassing agents are thor
oughly unscrupulous, and make Buch
misrepresentations as they think will
secure a sale of their goods. What we
wish to suggest is this: we are selling
pianos, organs and sewing machines. If
you wish to buy either, please notify us
in person or by mail, and we will place it
in your house, free of any cost to you, or
any obligation whatever; we will fairly
set forth its merits, and, if you purchase,
we will guarantee satisfaction. All war

MONSfER NriW WILD WEST EXHIBITION.
And Soartfcii afeoit Doria A CoIvIb'k Co
ioftnal UnilratiOB of Great Show.
The Wild West, that land so prolific
of themes for the poet and novelist, is so
full of romance and romantic heroes and
heroines, of adventure and adventurers,
that it must ever be a source of wonder
to the world. The red man of the prairie
and the monntain. in all his savacerv:
and the frontiersman that daring class I
oi manhood, found nowhere else beneath .
the blue dome of heaven furnish an
endless variety of life pictures for the
literateur and the circus manager. In
the colossal shows owned, managed and
controlled by Messrs. John B. Doris &
E. D. Colvin, which will positively ex
hibit at Columbus on Thursday, Sept.
15, our show-going people will see a
truthful portrayal of life in the Wild
West, such as' lasso and lariat capturing
of wild horses, cattle and Indians, cap
ture of white maiden by Indian braves,
bloodless mimic massacres, bullfighting
without slaughter, capture of stage
coach by border banditti, etc. All these
acts are participated in by real Indians,
cowboys, scouts, trappers, frontiersmen,
and Mexican vaqueros and niatadores.
Messrs. Doris & Colvin also bring a Three
Ring circus, containing 200 bright arenic
stars, a Menagerie of 50 huge cages of
wild beasts, an Elevated Theater Stage
with 20 stelliferous troups, a World's
Museum, and, better than all, a Grand
Roman Hippodrome, which will be par
ticipated in by over one hundred Roman
race riders. The free-for-all street pa

The drouth broken.
Rain fell at intervals all forenoon
Thursday, and about 9 o'clock p. ni. the
big rain of the season set in and for 44
hours it fell in torrents; the storm was
accompanied with lightning and thun
der, but no wind. Much hay and grain
in stack is damaged; owing to the dry
season people sought the low lands on
which to make their hay and were very
busy, stacking most of the hay on the
ground. Friday morning the scene was
changed, presenting large lakes with hay
stacks as floating palaces; one man was
seen fishing for his mower and rake
where he had used it the day before, but
gavo it up for the time, they being en
tirely submerged. Waggoner & Barnes
thresher engine with large tank was
stuck in the mud Friday while en route
for this place; grain stacks that were
not well put up are damaged more or
less, as thoy are already beginning to
grow. The flood affords amusement, in
stead of sorrow for Thomas Johnson; he
put a tight wagon box on the water in
the large slough that runs through his
place, and Saturday it was being used
for fishing out melons that had been
torn from their vines and carried away
with the waters. The school house
stands near the edge of a basin contain
ing about 140 acres; Friday morning the
water reached the floor, the like of which
was never before known. On Lost
Creek at Reagan's bridge the grade on
the south approach had large holes
washed out, in which two teams were
nearly drowned, Friday p. m. Mr.
Parish, a homesteader in Custer county,
had to lay over a mile north of here, in
consequence of bridges being washed
out; he was returning home from Iowa,
with three horses.
