house and again as a senator. He uses
good judgment in his personal matters,

do so again. A republican among re
publicans, he is more apt to succeed
with legislation than a democrat

match in the hands of a little girl four
years old, who, doubtless would have
perished but for her elder sister who
rescued her just in time to save her
from the flames.
The Rising Independent of Oct 5th
has this little paragraph. A rush on
Rising will certainly run the price of po
tatoes higher than this quotation: "Po
tatoes are bringing 20 cents per bushel
in this market this season. Last year
the price ranged from 40 to 50 cents.
The high prices paid then were creatid
by the failure of the crop in Michigan
and ether potato countries, while this
year the crop has been large every
where.'' Judge Hudson is now located at the
Court House, in one of the new rooms
provided by the county fathers, where he

those who may have business to transact
As illustrating one of the important
functions of the Judge's office, the first
business he was called upon to transact
upon entering his new office was the is
suance of a marriage license. The Judge
is very genial, and especially so with the
young swains who come for license.
The correspondence in regard io the

successful farmers, both have had much
to do with county affairs, the former as
.commissioner, the latter as supervisor,
and both are universally esteemed as
good citizens. Outside of the political
votes they will cast (against a republican
for U..8. senator, for instance, and the
like), we know of no particalar objection
against them. The' men are good bat
their politics is bad.

We find the following paragraph in
the Lincoln Journal of Saturday last.
We presume it has reference to a young
man, a former resident of this city: "De
tective Pound left yesterday over the
Union Pacific for Helena, Montana,
armed with, a requisition from . Gov.
Thayer for the arrest of Ed. Goetzinger,
who is charged by a Mr. Barry with em
bezzling the sum of $150. It is alleged
that Barry had commissioned Goetzinger
to sell, a soda fountain, which he did,
and then spent the money. When called
upon to make returns of the sale he
could. not do so, but gave his promise
that as soon as he could make a turn of
some matters and raise the money he
would account for the sale with interest.

There was a destructive fire started
near Ian-view school house last week.
Mr. S. Mahood lost four haystacks, oth
ers lost grain and Mr. Adams lost grain
and hogs, and Mr. Scholles'a grain and
house was barely saved by his and the
neighbors noble exertions, -and so was
the property of others.
Mr. A. Henrich has rented his farm to
Mr. Wm. Royalty of Smith county, Kan?
sas. Many parts' of the state have
suffered severely from drouth and -so
have parts of Nebraska, but Platte coun
ty is ahead every time. -
Lost Creek' township is making great
and commendable efforts to get good
roads, especially toward Platte .Center.
It a town wants to prosper let the roads
leading to it be in good condition and
the farmers who have to plor all earthly
prosperity for everybody out of the
ground will take pleasure'in coming and
feeding thd storehouses, pantries, cel
lars, stomachs and purses of their city
There is talk of great cattle feeding
establishments all around and onr good
corn crop will find an excellent market,
better than ever, thank Godi .
Mr. A. Henrich will soon have a great
sale of everything and that. will be a
chance for everybody to get .eggs with
two yolks of every kind, sort,, name, age,
sex and description at low prices, low
interest and long, long time. Look out

Galloway calves; 20 head' of high grade
Short Horn calves; 50 head of high grade
Short Horn yearlings, being mixed steers
and heifers; 120 head of high grade
Short Horn cows. These are a fine lot of
cows and are with calf by the two Gallo
way balls, to be sold. This, stock has
been Icept by me for several years and is
admitted by those having seen them to
be the finest lot of cattle seen together
