John Eisenman, J. Tschudin and

book of France and of the United States.
E. 1 Eggleston and C. S. Martin
came over the B. & M., Platte-river
bridge Saturday evening accompanied
half way by another commercial travel
ler, who, concluding from the shakiness
of the structure, that discretion was the
better part of valor, took the back track.
Saturday night three spans of the bridge
went down stream, and Eggleston and
Martin would not rejieat that experi
ment for 8100.
The B. & M. are getting a lot of
very free advertising just now in the
newspapers. It seems they are arrang
ing for one-fare excursion tickets for
the round trip the next three months
from points in Wisconsin, Illinois, In
diana, Missouri and as far east as Pitts
burg, Wheeling and Buffalo, to points
on the line of their road in Nebraska.
Those who expect to touch the eastern

A Seward farmer claims, naturally
enough.that he received two cents a bush
el more for his oats because an oat
meal mill is located at Seward. A home
market counts, and this manufactures
give. Columbus has a creamery,therefore
it pays farmers to give more attention,
to milch cows; we have a broom factory,
therefore it pays to raise some broom
corn; we have two large mills, and can,
in consequence, get a better price for
wheat. A paper mill would pay; starch
factory, a canning factory, and make
more valuable, products that can be
raised here in abundance.
Hon. B. K. Bruce, formerly U. S.
Senator, also Register of the U. S.
Treasury, has been lecturing in Kearney,
Central City, Fullerton, St. Paul and
other places in Nebraska on "The Race
Problem." He stopped off here a few
hours and had quite a chat with Hon. L.
Gerrard of this city, mainly on affairs in
the south. Mr. Bruce is a very intelli
gent man, well-informed on public mat
ters, and, by his voice alone, would not
be recognized as belonging to the
African race. He was born a slave in
1841, and at the age of 34 was elected
senator. He and Mr. Gerrard were
members of the same committee at the
national republican convention at Chi
cago which nominated Grant for presi
dent and there became acquainted.
There is likely to be broached a
pretty interesting legal question -when
our city election takes place. An en
deavor was made to annex certain prop
erty to the city limits, but all the legal
requirements had not been fulfilled
when a temporary injunction was laid
upon further proceedings. The question
now arises, Can voters of that section
be deprived of their vote at the coming
election? Suppose they offer to vote,
they may be told that they are not yet
in the city. But, while this may be the
case, they are yet in the school district,
and we learn that some of them at least
will claim that they have a right to vote,
not only for members of the school
board, (as they usually have done) but
for all school officers, which, by construe
tion may mean all officers who by law
have anything to do with school mat
ters, authorizing levy of school tax, etc,
etc If this be decided in their favor,
then the ladies also can vote some of
them being eligible on school matters.
Altogether the city election this spring
promises to be a little more interesting
The public, whether the general
government, the state, county, township
or city, should make all needed public
improvements that they can readily pay
for, and thus distribute a portion, at
least, of the surplus on hands, and help
along the general interests. Public
buildings should be erected wherever
absolutely demanded, roads opened,
bridges constructed and so on. Let the
dollars now lying idle be put to work, so
that they may be doing some good. It
is the running water that turns the
wheel of the mill. It is the blood, in
circulation, that tends to strengthen
life. There is something radically wrong
when the circulating "medium" does not
circulate, and when that which is de
signed to facilitate commercial activity
is allowed by non-usage to act aa a clog
to the wheels. The period of rash spec
ulation has passed the time for legiti
mate, solid, business investments is at
hand. The bag that has guarded the
gold from the gambling chances can now
come forth into the light of day and
invest itself in Nebraska aoil and crops
and oattlt and bogs.

The breaking up of the Loup river is
always a local event that attracts con
siderable attention from young and old.
The constant rush and roar of the wa
ters and the ice create an interest in all
who hear that is not easily suppressed,
and nearly all are instinctively drawn
toward the stream. And this is not
strange. It is very natural that it should
be so. Among the many scores of peo
ple who went near to see the turbu
lent stream last Sunday was Willie
Hoppen, a lad of eight years, accompa
nied by other children near his age,
whose homes are near by. While push
ing cakes of floating ice near the margin
of the stream Willie somehow missed
his footing and slipped into the water.
One of the older boys clutched at his
hair but could not get hold enough to
secure the unfortunate lad from drown
ing. The accident occurred about three
o'clock. Every effort was made to find
the body, but, as wo write, without avail.

Los Angeles papers of recent date
contain detailed accounts of the
case of the people vb. Joseph A.
and Eunice A. Baker, formerly
well - known residents of this city.
The charge preferred against them by
their daughter, a penitentiary offence, if
proven, is the kidnapping of her child.
Frank P. Burgess was married to Miss
Lizzie Baker in this city when she was
sixteen years old, and was, sometime
afterwards, divorced from her. Their
child, Stella, is now six years old. Its
mother has led a checkered existence,
and it would seem that her own parents,
who have maintained the child nearly
all its life, so far, do not deem her a
suitable person to have it in charge, but
would rather her father, Mr. Burgess,
should care for it hence their action.
The account of affairs, as given by Mr.
and-Mrs. J. A. Baker does not appear to
the advantage of their daughter, now
married to a Mr. Barker. She lives at
Los Angeles, her parents at National
City, and A. L. Reinoehl, late of Central
City, this state, was their attorney at
court, the judge holding that as the pa
rents were in contempt by not produc
ing the child in court, he would have to
hold them in heavy bonds, which he
fixed at 82,000, and which they gave.

Our attendance 'at thiB term of the
district' court has convinced us of one
fact that is evident to all who have
business with the district court and
that is for the amount of labor to be per
formed there is a lack of room. The old.
court room has answered its purpose,,
and in its day was sufficient for the do-,
raands but its dangerous walls, .old
dingy and broken seats, and worn-out
chairs are a disgrace to the room, incom
modious and inconvenient as it is. And
to ask twelve intelligent beings to Bit for
twentv-fonr hours in a room much more
suited for a cattle stall than for any
other purpose, and deliberate on ques
tions of public and right, is a punish
ment not contemplated by the provis
ions of the law. As we sat on the jury
the snn was shining through the lath of
the ceiling from which the plaster had
fallen, lighting up and making cheerful
the otherwise dingy and dilapidated in
terior of the room. We believe the
District Judge would be justified in
making an order to have the court and
jury rooms made comfortable, cheerful
and convenient, at any rate the super
visors have the tower; and it should lie
attended to. Humphrey Independent.
All the frost will soon be out of the
ground and plowing will begin and go
forward in earnest. In eighteen n years
residence in Nebraska we have not seen
such a lively demand for land to rent,
and those who have large tracts devoted
to pasture (wild grass) will lie apt to
break a good portion of it this season so
as to rent by another. Those who, In
breaking, will be short of hay, can make
up the account by devoting the laud
thus broken to millet, which almost in-
Lvariably brings a good crop on the sod
when tnat is properiy cm 10 pieces uy a
disc harrow. A min in the other day to
send off the rent of land to its owner,
when questioned as to what the owner's
share of the crop had brought him per
acre, said, "about 83.50." That makes a
good rental for the land, but, lxstter
still, whnn one is fixed for it, is to culti
vate yourself. Investment in Nebraska
lands will bring a good return, whether
immediately in the rent or crops, or
whether more remotely in the increased
value of the land. Naturally rich, with
good usage, it is becoming more so every
