There are 76 pupils in the primary
department of the Third ward. The
board of education intends having a
building erected on the school lot, in
order to have the extra number accom

usual are cutting up corn. Mostly it is
being done to feed to fattening steers,
but all who can possibly find the time
6hould cut up the corn, and thus save
hay for sale.

It is estimated that at Mason City,
lav, the heavy frosts of last Wednesday
and Thursday nights damaged the corn
crop- to the extent of twelve bushels, to
the acre. Nebraskans can be thankful,
so far,.for the mild fall weather we are
having, in which thousands of tons of
hay are being put up.
. Nebraska has, so far, been wonderfully-favored
by the weather clerk..
While much com was planted late, and
much besides, owing to the very rapid

G. N. Crawford, Esq., returned Satur
day from Idaho, where he has been
spending the last few weeks grubbing
sage brush and seeding some land to
Alfalfa. On twelve acres last year he
raised three crops, 72 tons in all, which
sold at $12 a ton, or $72 an acre; $10 an
acre represented the entire expense,
leaving $62 an acre as the net profit.
Mr. Crawford says that the inter-state
commerce act has been a detriment to
that country, because the miners of
high-grade ore have held railroad com
panies strictly to the law concerning
rates, and have .virtually ruled out the
miners of low-grade ores, and their ven
tures are being abandoned.
A Narrow Escape.
Monday at about five o'clock, Mr. and
Mrs. Rudolph Kummer were going
homeward from the city in a wagon
loaded with merchandise, barb wire and
a wardrobe being a portion of 'the load.
On the west end of Eleventh street, the
bit of one of the horses fell out of his
mouth from some cause, the team be
came unmanageable and 'ran away; for a
little while they ran on the straight road,
Mr. Kummer holding to the lines, until
one of them gave way. At once a front
wheel was cramped against the wagon
box, which was overturned, throwing
the occupants to the ground, fracturing
Mr. K.'s right shoulder and Mrs. K.'s
left wrist. Cap. Tschtidy, who caught
the team and from whom we get the par
ticulars, thinks Mr. K. was struck on
the shoulder by. the wardrobe and that
Mrs. K. was hit by the wagon box.
The many friends and acquaintances
of Mr. and Mra. Kummer will be glad to
hear that notwithstanding their injuries,
.they had strength and pluck enough to
walk into the city and place themselves
under the care of Dr. Willy;
It-was certainly a narrow escape and
the JocBXAx, expresses the universal
feeling 'of thankfulness in this, commu
nity that the .lives" of two of its best and
most respected citizens have been spared
for further' usefulni
Unusualprearatiohs have been made
by the managers of the 'Columbus Driv
ing Park and Fair association .to make
their 8th annual fair, to be held Sept. 26,
27 and 28, the most successful 'one of the
series.- Already. large number of en
tries have been made and several special
attractions arranged for. . This associa
tion is a member of .the.Cen.tral Nebras
ka Fair circuit, and promises, to give' one
of.theTsry bast fairs in the circuit The
premiums are iiberal'and the entries'
will be large. Full informatirn maybe

From A. W. Clark, the gentlemanly
supervisor- of Columbus township, we
learn some facte of interest to the pub
lic. . .
The' grading now being done is under
ft contract with Mr. Fuller, and the
work is preceding with a Gould & Aus
pn machine; about two miles of 'grading
is completed .on what is known' as the
JBrowner road and Becher road. The
contract is at 35 cents a rod, the 'grade
to be not less than 28 nor more than 30
feet wide, nd not less than. 2 nor more
than 3 feet in perpendicular hight be-
( tween the. top of the ridge and the bot
tom of the ditch. .
About five miles of work-has been-con-
tracted for, and work is now being done
on the. grade south of Westcott's on the
Ernst road. It is intended also to grade
the hill north of Ernst's into better
shape for travel.
Now is certainly a good time to work
the toads; the weathor being, dry, the
dirt will get packed.
The ..township authorities are to be
commended for the action they are tak
ing, being convinced that more is got for
the money by contract in this way.
A township hall was ordered in the
spring,and has now been contracted for,
further operations 'awaiting the selec
tion of a site. 'The building is to be
18x24 feet 10 feet ceiling, brick founda
tion. James Salmon has the contract,
the building to cost'$375. It should be
located so as to be as convenient as prac
ticable for the voters of the township;
near Fred Gottschalk's has been talked
of, and near C. C. Miller's, but the site
has not yet been determined, and any
one desiring to donate can call on A. W
The JouBNAii is not disposed to quit
saying a good word now and again, for
the establisement of a canning factory
here. We .are satisfied that it is only a
question of time, but we want the time
to be short so that we can have some of
the. benefits to follow. The main thing
lacking all along has not been the money
necessary for the. enterprise, but the
man of practical knowledge to invest
his time and talents and some money.
We believe that stock for an $8,000 in
stitution could be secured in an hour
after the practical man makes his ap
pearance. Under date of Sept. 16, Judge H. J.
Hudson is in receipt of a letter from E.
H. Potter of Warnerville, this state,
(where he is superintending a success
ful factory) telling him that he will give
any information desired concerning the
business. He does not state that he
would take a moneyed interest at all,
but it may be that if he could not, him
self, he would find a man that would.
Nothing like ''pegging away" at what
you -want.
Platte Coanty at Lincoln.
Our county's exhibit at the state fair
is thns spoken of by the Lincoln Call:
"In charge of John Tannahill the large
variety of products of this rich county
are nicely placed and are demanding a
large share of the visitors' attention.
Fruits, vegetables, grain and grasses in
all varieties are here and all of mammoth
proportions and of finest quality demon
strating that quantity and quality can
bo combined in the products of this rich
Mr. Tannahill is among the early set
tlers of the county and is in every way
posted and is certainly representing the
county very creditably. Some of the
finest varieties of apples, grapes and oth
er fruits are to be found here.
The display of bottled goods is exten
sive and very nice, consisting of table
sauces, meat dressings, eta, made from
the products of the county.
The garden seed display is the largest
yet shown, there being over 100 different
varieties. The vegetables are among the
largest and best ever exhibited in the
state. The specimens of artificial stone
made at Columbus is a drawing card..
One feature of this exhibit worthy of
mention are the wooden bottom shoes
manufactured by Siegenthaler Bros. &
Lutz of Columbus, which are pronounc
ed as exceedingly fine.
The exhibit is second to none and is a
credit to the Platte county people.
Hon. M. K. Turner, the vetern edi
tor of the Columbus Journal was in the
Center Friday last. He made, a pleasant
call at- the Argus office, and expressed
himself as being surprised at the rapid
growth of the town."
So says the Platte Center Argus. We
seldom object to anything said of us,
but we must this time enter protest, in
a good-natured way. We object to be
ing quoted as "surprised" at the rapid
jjrowth of the town. In eighteen years
we have seen Boone county grow from a
country without a white man living in
it; Nance the same, except government
employes, at the old Pawnee agency;
Madison and Polk nearly the same, and
it is too late along for us to be Surpris
ed" at rapid growths anywhere in Ne
braska. If the Argus will accept the
word "pleased," we will call it square.
Colanba Honey at Lincoln.
Aside from its newspapers, mills and
banks, there is probably no single busi
ness represented in Columbus that bet
ter advertises the city than the business
transacted by Mrs. if. N. Heater. Of her
exhibit at the state fair last week the
Lincoln Journal says:
"Each succeeding year the apiary de
partment finds Mrs. Heater, of Colum
bus,, present with a large showing of
comb and extracted honey, wax, imple
ments and all bee-keepers' supplies.
The exhibit is in the form of a large
pyramid of jars of .Honey arranged
around an ornamented velvet back
ground, bearing the name and residence
of 'the exhibitor. This exhibit shows to
advantage what well directed intelligent
study and years of experience can do in
this direction, and all who visit the state
fair should not fail to visit apiary hall
arid inspect this exhibition;"
It is little paragraphs such as foK
lows that attract the attention of sensi
ble, farmers east more than all the brag
and bluster that can be heaped' up:
James M-Frost, though haying Jand Of
his own in Kansas, has rented for several
years; a tract near this city, of. Patrick
Murray. This year he seeded 300 acres
to corn and 100 to oats. While his oats
were about as the usual run, his corn he
thinks will not be less than 14,000
bushels, Pat Murray estimates -it 15;-,
000. vMr. Frost has lived in several
different places,' but he thinks Platte
county is the best 'farming -country he
hasstruok. ..
.Columbus teachers seem to be in
demand. A-few days ago a committee,
from an adjoining- town visited Colum
bus andv offered' tha present city super
intendent a much larger salary than he
now receives if he would, take charge of
their -schools.' And now comes David
City offering D. G. Christy a larger sal
ary if he. will accept a position as assist
ant principal in their high school.
This book, lust out, is the life of a
great man by a great -author. .
It is a superior' literary production
worthy, of special attention.
Both subject and author have'risen by
superior- qualities,. indomitable energy
and application from the quiet walks of
life to world-wide fame.
They have been life-long friends; both
have had thrilling iBxperiences on the
field of battle; have served in the council
chamber of the nation. How fortunate
that the man whose illustrious- ancestry
shall be put in the shade -by his own'
elevation to the presidency of a. far
greater 'nation and whose fitness for.
sucn exalted position the people desire
iu uvcu.oie.iamuiiar witu, suouiu nave
such a biographer. One' who has pass
ed through like experience in the war
for the Union and in the national coun
cils and rho can intelligently unfold
and discuss the views Gen. -Harrison
holds upon national issues. One also
who wields a pen of such wonderful des
criptive power as to have reached un
challenged fame as authorship.
The work is issued by the Messrs.
.Hubbard "Broa, of Philadelphia, Chicago
and Kansas. City, is intensely interest
ing, elegantly illustrated, and we under
stand is having a remarkable sale. It is
sold through agents and undoubtedly
affords exceedingly profitable employ
ment for a great many activo young
men as every true American should cer
tainly read this book before Nov. 4th.
d E. Barrell, local agent hero ot the
B. & M., left Saturday week, ostensibly
for .Plattsmouth, whither his- wife hiUl
gone the day before. Not arriving there,
it was ascertained here, by a letter left
for his wife, that nsome debts; contract
ed before bis arrival' here, had greatly
troubled him, and ho would leave until
such time as he could straighten them
up. It is said that he was given to mag
nifying affairs greatly, enlarging mole
hills of trouble into mountains of diffi
culties, and it is thought that a tempo
rary giving way to this feeling so pos
sessed him that he became completely
discouraged. There is no evidence that
his accounts or transactions with tho
railroad company were anything but all

the tariff issue that is doing it. He
speaks of the workmen at a slate quarry;
they -will all vote tho republican tickot,
every one of them, because if free trade
prevails their occupation is gone, and
they will have to hunt another job. So
it goes. The men who toil for a living
for themselves and families know on
which side their bread is buttered.
H. H. Huntomann was in town Wed
nesday last on business and gave the
Journal a very pleasant call. He has
lately contracted for the erection of the
following improvements in his section:
a dwelling-house 28x36, two stories, for
Fred. Behlens, Shell Creek township; a
dwelling, 34x26, two stories, for Henry
Robert of Sherman township; a barn 48
x60 foot and posts 16 feet for John H.
Democratic sheets take great pains
to deny the fact that some John Jones,
a clerk in one of the departments, is in
charge of the distribution of campaign
documents, but we notice they
are not engaged in denying
that Graver Cleveland, president of
the United States, has furnished $10,000
as a contribution to the fund designed
to re-elect him president. If the former
is civil service reform what is the latter?
We are in receipt of a letter from
J. A. Beed, dated on steamship City of
Berlin, on mid-Atlantic, Aug. 30, 1888.
It is a lengthy, interesting letter, but,
received just as we go to press, we can
not find space for it this week. He
writes that his health is improving fast
and that he is enjoying his trip exceed
ingly. His address, for the present, will
be care of Inman Inter-National Steam
ship Co., 13, Pall Mall, London, England.
