Judge J. G. Higgins, Uncle Sam's chief
official at the Grand Island land office,
was in the city several days last week
on business, and gave this office a very
pleasant call. In speaking of the pros
perity of Grand Island, he said that, as
usnal, they had two booms on hand just
now, one of them a beet-sugar establish
ment, the location of which is virtually
assured, and the other the Baptist State
Fuiversity. The Judge thinks that a
considerable portion of the advance
ment of Grand Island the past few
years is duo to the energy of C. W.
Scarf, a young man, resident of Grand
Island the past six years. He works
hard, corresponds, t ravels, and gives of
his time and his means to help build up

Friday afternoon the different depart

In this department was exhibited some
very fine written work executed by
scholars whose ages ranged from 5 to 7
years. First was displayed the pencil
writing on slates, then the next higher
step, writing on paper. The second
primary grades displayed the second
step in the graded work consisting of
the last five gifts in the kindergarten
work and also the various occupations.
With the kindergarten work was shown
the regular written work of the grades,
consisting of spelling, writing, arithme
tic number work, and language exercises
of the grades. In the intermediate de
partment display, we noticed besides
the papers on arithmetic, geography,
grammar, etc., some very fine drawings
consisting of landscapes, pictures, and
regular pen work. A numler of them
were very pretty ana niceiy executed.
In the seventh and eighth grades the
map drawing was unusually excellent
the penmanship was very fine and the
various papers written neatly and accu
rately. The High School exhibit consisted of
the regular daily writings of the school,
essays, algebra, geometry, civil govern
ment and book-keeping.
These papers were neatly written and
their manner of handling the different
subjects was very good.
During the afternoon a committee
consisting of Messrs. C. W. Pearsall, M.
Brngger and D. F. Davis was chosen, to
pick out the papers displaying the best
general work, taking age, grade, writing,
etc., into consideration. The committee
decided that Ada Lewis, age 12, of the
Third Ward School, had the best papers,
and she was awarded the "Fitzpatrick
prize" a handsome pen and holder.
A large number of our citizens visited
the High School and inspected the work;
one aud all concluded that they had
been highly repaid. The work will be
taken to Fremont and placed on exhibi
bition during the State Teachers' As
sociation, this week.
The citizens of Columbus who were
present Friday were very well pleased
with the exhibit, and may well congratu

AN OPEN LETTEK.
To Mr. LouU XrMarray, Frederick City,
Dear Sir: The Journal is informed
that your establishment at Frederick,
for the canning of fruit and vegetables,
is the largest in the United States, and
that, consequently, your business is im
mense. Without disparaging your section of
country at all (a summer's sojourn there
during the war and what we there learn
ed forbids that), the Journal wishes to
call your attention to a few facts: there
is no state in the Union that has soil
better adapted to raising vegetables
than has Nebraska; we are nearly the
middle of the United States; we are close
to the mining regions of the west the
market-house, so to speak, for the great
bulk of your products, freights are in
our favor; a practically unlimited
quantity of land would be at your dis
Iostal here, the raw products could Le
had iu great abundance.
An establishment here, similar to the
one at Frederick City, would lie worth a
good deal of money to you, at once, and
(the reason we write this open letter to
you) it would be a great benefit to this
If you will say that you will think of
it, the Journal will endeavor to still
further make the way plain. We have a
splendid country, a magnificent future,
a people who honor enterprise, energy
and native worth, and you will be a
thousand timeB welcome.
A man died leaving 323,480 to his
sons aged 11,13 and 15 years, the amount
to be loaned out at 5 per cent., simple
interest, and divided equally among the
boys so that each would get the same
amount when they become of age.
Solution: I first find the number of
years before each sou will be of age;
21 1110, 21- 13-8, 21-156. Taking
31.00 for a basis in each case, I find
that 31.00 given to the 11 yr. old son at
5 per cent, for 10 yrs. will amount to
31.50, 31.00 given to tho 13 yr. old son at
5 percent, for 8 yrs. will amount to 31.40,
and S1.00 given to the 15 yr. old son at 5
per cent, for 6 yrs. will amount to 31.30.
To find the proportion in which the
money is to be divided, I find the least
common multiple of 150, 140, 130 which
is 2730. Dividing this by 150, 140 and l.'W
gives, respectively, 182, 195, 210. I then
find that the money is to lie in the same
proportion as these numbers are to each
other, that is, the sum of these (5S7) di
vided into 323,480 gives 340 as the unit
of comparison, which, multiplied by 182,
195 and 210 gives, respectively, 37270 the
share of the 11 yrs. old son; 37800 the
share of the 13 yrs. old son; 38-100 the
share of the 15 yrs. old son.
Proof : 87280 at 5 per cent, for 10 yrs.
amounts to 810920; 87800 at 5 per cent,
for 8 yrs. amounts to 310920; 38400 at 5
per cent, for 6 yrs. amounts to 810920.

Mrs. Belinda V. Davis whs lorn in the
year of our Lord, Feb. 4th, 1827, in
Frederick county. Maryland, and depart
ed this life at her home in Columbus,
Platte county, Neb., March 18th. 1888,
aged 01 years, 1 month and 4 days. She
leaves a faithful and devoted husband
and eight dutiful sons to mourn their
sad Iobs. Mr. and Mrs. Davis were mar
ried 43 years on the day her sainted
spirit left the church militant for the
church triumphant with God.
Mr. G. W. Davis with his family came
to this county from Baltimore City, Ma
ryland, 15 years ago, aud has remained
here ever since.
Sister Davis was a member of the M.
E. church in Baltimore Oily. She re
mained in the same faith until her death.
She was also a member in good standing
of Columbia Lodge Daughters of Re
becca of this city. The funeral sermon
was preached by II. L. Powers, pastor of
the M. E. church, to a large and atten
tive congregation, after which all that
remained earthy of sister Davis was
tearfully laid away to rest in the Colum
bus cemetery, H. J. Hudson and C. A.

Many of our county teachers have
taken a commendable interest in the
work of the Fremont exhibit; while the
display is not so large as might have
been desired, it is mostly of a high order.
We wish especially to mention the fine
drawings by the pupils of Miss Annie
Freeman, Miss Alice Kingston and Mr.
Louis Leavy. These are of a very high
degree of merit. The most notablo mat
ter in the whole exhibit is the work
from the pupils of Miss Nellie Curtis of
Loupe township. The work consists of
articles of wearing apparel, such as waist
bands, neck wear, pin cushions, etc., or
namentally and tastily finished. They

concerning a former citizen of Colum
bus. Herman's many friends here will
wish a long and happy life: "An agreea
ble little affair occurred on Monday
evening, March 12th, at the residence of
Henry Fierman, in the union by mar

by Judge Boone. Subsequent to the

section of the San Diego Turn Verein
rendered some fine German songs. Re
freshments were served. Many valuable
and useful presents were received from
the assembled friends of the bridal cou
ple, and their married life was inaugu
rated under the happiest auspices."
