Macfarland, Carl ..Kramer and W. B.
Backus. One and all were in good

of carrying Virginia as' the democrats
have of succeeding in New Jersey.

On the informal ballot Maher received

of Nebraska eight years ago, and think
the country has greatly improved sinco
then, especially the farming portion.
Some of the Joubxai readers are
afflicted with hay fever. We find the
following remedy going the rounds. We
give it, that you may investigate its
merits: Mix sulphate of quinine and
water in proportions of one grain of the
powder to one ounce of the fluid, and
snuff this mixture up the nostrils freely,
from the hollow of the hand, several
times a day, or as often as convenient.
Don't despise this remedy because of its
simplicity, but use it persistently as if
yon wanted to be cured and "if not
cured, you will experience great relief.
Mr. Fit7patrick hands us a copy of
the Findlay Sunday Gas containing in
full the particulars of the prophicies of a
certain Dr. Weissenbauer that the
great gas reservoir under Findlay
will some day explode and cause
great destruction. The -editor in an
article endeavors to show that the
"Dr." is a myth, and the basis
of the theories advanced untenable. It
is very probable that the fiction was
written and published at the instigation
of some rival manufacturing interest,
to deter manufacturers from locating at
Eastern iteople who have not been
in the west at all, or have not visited it
for years, cannot understand what pro
gress is lieing made, in Nebraska, for
instance. It did look a few years ago as
though there was land enough lying
around unoccupied, for all the landless
of the civilized world, bnt things have
changed. Cultivation of the soil, the
planting of groves of timber, etc., have
wrought a wonderfnl change on tba
face of nature; farmers have !een very
prosperous, and being also enterprising,
their improvements show to good ad
vantage. The provident farmer has his pota
toes all sold or properly stored, his grain
threshed and secured, excepting the corn
which he is now husking; his fall plow
ing will soon be completed, if the ground
don't freeze; his manure hauled out upon
the poor spots on the fields; his corrals,
sheds, shelters and stables fixed up for
winter; the house repairs have all been
looked after, broken lights replaced,
storm doors placed where needed and
double windows, stoves fitted up nicely,
and everything in shape for cold weath
er when it shall come, as come it may
. S. Moore of Boone county, an old-
time friend of the Joubxai family, called
at our sanctum Wednesday last. He was
returning home from a visit to Noble
county, Ohio, and was accompanied by
his wife and daughter and niece, Miss
Nellie Moore. While in Ohio, it rained
about four days out of seven. Mr. Moore
used to come to Columbus with all his
farm produce, and buy here all his sup
plies, the trip occupying three days.
Afterwards, on the completion of the
railroad, Albion became his market
town; the building of the road to Fuller
ton made Albion seem a long ways off;
Cedar Rapids discounted that, and now
a depot at Belgrade will soon make the
railroad a convenience for sure, and Co
lumbus as a market is unthought of.
The Grand Lodge of the state of
Nebraska of the L O. O. F. was in ses
sion at Omaha Wednesday to Friday of
last week. Judge H. J. Hudsor was
representative from Wildey Lo" .e of
this city. He tells us that there were
260 members present, that reports from
different parts of the state show that the
order in the state is very prosperous,
there having been within the past year,
an increase in membership of 1,000.
There were many changes and impor-
-tant legislation at the Grand Lodge, in
teresting to the fraternity. A sorrow
ful incident cast a gloom over Friday's
work. Benjamin Palmerton, an old
settler of Beatrice, a man of integrity
and worth, dropped dead while at din

Hon. George W. E. Dorsey, Hon. George
B. Meiklejohn and Mr. John Macken of
St. Paul, Neb. These distinguished cit
izens were billed for a grand republican
rally at Platto Center for the sama af

Ragatz, Carl Kramer and others they
immediately took carriages for their des
tination. On approaching the "Center" they
saw the Hags and bunting Hying in ev

The meeting was opened at 4 o'clock,
every seat in the nice new hall being
occupied, and hundreds standing. .As a
compliment to the visitors Carl Kramer
was asked to preside. The stage was
neatly decorated. The Hon. George W.
E. Dorsey spoke for over an hour on
tariff mostly, and the audience listened
very closely and attentively, applauding
He was followed by John Macken who
spoke to his countrymen, appealing to
them to stand by the party that gave
thorn tho homestead law, asking them to
beware. That which English free trade
had done for Ireland, democratic English
free trade, if introduced, would do for
their adopted land. Mr. Macken showed
himself to be a well-read, thoroughly
informed gentleman and mado many
friends and converts.
At 6 o'clock the meeting adjourned
and was convened again at 8. -If such a
thing was possible, the hall was even
more crowded in the evening than it had
been in the afternoon, many ladies being
in attendance. George B. Meiklejohn
made a fine speech, followed by Mr.
Dorsey. At half-past 10 the chairman,
after thanking tho audience for the per
fect order and good feeling that had
prevailed, wanted to dismiss them, but
repeated calls for Macken brought that
gentleman out with a beautiful tribute
to the republican party, etc.
Mr. Sam Alexander, a veteran of 1810
and one of our respected citizens of
Platte county, gave his experience of
Thanks are duo to Ed. Hoare, Mr.
Stephenson and in fact all the citizens
of Platto Center including the Band
with their good music for the complete
success of the meeting. If there is any
virtue in any public gathering, that
meeting certainly has done much for the
cause of republicanism in Platto county.
Arrangements lmvo been made to hold
another large republican meeting at

Columbns has a territory of about two
hundred square miles in her immediate
vicinity that she can utilize to her own
great advantage, and so that it will
inure to her benefit always. After a city
ceases to increase by immigration, her
march forward depends mainly upon
manufacturing and wholesale or jobbing
houses. In this respect, the first insti
tutions count heavily, because every one
successfully under headway, helps to
ward the establishment and well being
There is no denying the fact that
factories and small farms, well-tilled are
good to accompany each other, and right
here we have as good land as the sun
shines on for the purpose of raising veg

Give us a good canning factor, well
provided and rightly conducted and it
will add immensely to the business in
terests of this city.
In the first place, more men, women
and children will find employment, and
such spend the money they .earn, at
home, with our merchants, mechanics
and dealers, and spend the most of it
The following, from the Nebraska
Farmer,shows some of the advantages to
A canning factory is a more important
adjunct in connection with truck farming
than can be seen at first glance. In any
town where the business is conducted to
any extent, it becomes a paying institu
tion in a two fold sense. Say there are
twenty merchants who will contribute
$150 each. This $3,000 will furnish-all
the machinery of the plant necessary to
do a large business. As the canning is
conducted during the summer any cheap
structure will do for a building. One
hundred hands, women and girls, can be
profitably employed for several months
in such a concern, and it is safe to 6ay
the bulk of the earnings of this 100 go
right into the hands, or business, of the
twenty merchants who invested in the
project, and even if they lost the princi
pal, the increased income, business and
population resulting from the erection
of the cannery would be largely bene
ficial to all concerned.
It should be added that the new man
casting about for a new location to em
bark in the business cannot but regard
this factory as a promising and encour
aging auxiliary, since he is assured about
first cost for that portion of his products
it may not pay to ship. A good deal
more might in justice be said in favor of
Tomatoes, corn and peas are the sta
ples in the vegetable line, and strawber
ries, peaches, plums, eteu, in the fruit
Next in importance would be a box
factory, which could be secured at a
similar cost and most of what has been
said in favor of the canning establish
ment will apply here.
