This is the airy, stinging title of an
other sprightly amusing book by Palmer
Cox. It is one of the Queer People se
rios, and similar to its companion "Paws
and Claws," of which we told yon-recent-ly.
This is one of the funniest and
brightest books for youngsters we have
ever seen. The illustrations are splen
did and will make the boys and girls
roar with laughter. Tho Boston Budget,
says: "As a holiday book nothing could
be more appropriate, since nothing could
confer greater pleasure upon the little
ones." The National Republican says:
"Every page is a picture and all the text
music, a fountain of fun, never ceasing.
It will make young eyes blaze." It will
certainly be wonderfully popular. It is
published by Messrs. Hubbard Bros., of
Philadelphia, Chicago, and Kansas City,
to whom persons desiring a copy or an
agency should apply.

We learn from Carl Kramer, who
was in Lincoln Monday that Gov. Thay
er's majority now foots up 19,760. He
says, too, that in all of the second con
gressional district only one democrat
was elected as a member of the lower
honse of the legislature. - Friends of
Gen. Manderson are apprehensive that
Laird will be a formidable candidate for
U. S. senator. We do not see that this
necessarily follows. The great body of
republicans in the state favor Mr. Man

wish to succeed him.

Edward GPinkney, a former resident
of Colambifij, dropped in on me not very
long-ago.- He said that he hailed from
Hailey, Idaho Ty., which place he had
made his home for the past several years,
and that he owned a valuable mine in
that section of the country. He looked
well and was neatly dressed in a fine
broadcloth suit, and seemed to have
plenty of money. He claimed that there
were "no flies on him" then; that when
he first left Columbus, he had a very
hard time; that he "broke on the rail,"
trampedlept in sheds and straw stakes,
and suffered nearly every kind of priva
tion, till he struck this place in Idaho,
where he located his mining claim, and
had acted as deputy sheriff. He also said
that in the meantime he had visited in
New York city, and along the coast of
California as far north as Alaska; that he
did not know the whereabouts of his
mother or brother; that the last he heard
of the former she was in California and
that his brother was somewhere in Da

trade at -Golden, a few miles from Den

RECOLLECTIONS OF AN OLD SErTLER.
Early in the year 1857 there arrived in
Columbus a man about forty years of
age, a native of Belgium. He had come
to Omaha at an early period after the
organization of the territory, and had
lived there and at St. Marys, Iowa. He
was destined to play a prominent part
in the politics of the early days of this
county, being a natural politician, his
name was John Reck. The headquar
ters for the transaction of business of
the Columbus land company had been
at Florence, and that year it was trans
ferred to Columbns, and John Reck was
chosen president, and J. P. Becker sec
retary. At the legislative session in the
winter of 1857, Mr. Reck was elected
doorkeeper, and in the year 1858, Platte
county being entitled to one representa
tive, John Rickly and John Reck were
the opposing candidates, and the latter
carried the election by a few votes. The
following year C. H. Whaley was the
representative. The following year Mr.
Reck was a candidate for the democrat
ic nomination and was defeated by S. H.
Fowler. C. H. Whaley was nominated
by the republicans, and Mr. Reck ran
as an independent candidate and was
elected by a fair majority. The follow
ing year the race was again between
Reck and Rickly, resulting this time in
the election of John Rickly. The war
had by this time burst on the country,
and the government had made an assess
ment on the states and territories to
raise money to carry on the war, and as
Nebraska was poor and unable to pay
her quota, the appropriation for legisla
tive expenses was applied to paying that
assessment and no session of the legisla
ture was held. In course of time Mr.
Reck changed his politics and became a
republican. He had heretofore had
sufficient political influence to secure a
position as doorkeeper or sergeant-at-arms
during the sessions of the legisla
ture of which he was not a member, and
when the internal revenue law was pass
ed, received the appointment of deputy
assessor, which he held at the time of
his death, which occurred in the fall of
1863. His remains were buried in the
old cemetery on the hill, (now a part of
Fred Blaser's farm), attended by the
most of the inhabitants of the town, and
under the supervision of some two or
three of his Masonic brethren then re
siding here, who read the burial service
of that society at his grave. Many years
later the officers of the Columbus cem
etery association removed his remains
to our present cemetery. Thus passed
away a pioneer, who will long be remem
bered by those who knew him, for his
amiability and kindness of .heart, and
who was a born diplomat and politician.

We wish to tender our heartfelt thanks
to our many friends of Columbus for the
grand donation given to us on the even

remember you in our humble prayers.

Elsewhere in today's Journal will be
found a mention of the event spoken of
below. We add this from the Leigh
Times of last week:'
On Monday last, there were gathered
together at the residence of W. C. Jack
son in Creston precinct, about one hun
dred guests, the occasion being no less
than the sixtieth anniversary of the mar
riage of Mr. and Mrs. John Drake, father
and mother of Mrs. Jackson.
What must be the feeling of this aged
couple looking back to the distance of
sixty years to their wedding day! and
how much admiration they inspire in
one, by their undimmed intellect and
sparkling conversation; Mrs. Drake read
an interesting paper prepared by her
self, detailing many of the noticeable
events of their life's journey. Sixty years
ago last Monday witnessed their wed
ding day, just six days after the election
of Jackson whose campaign Mrs. Drake
reminded us was conducted on tho same
issno as the one just passed. Tho tariff
oeing tue turning poim in nis election.
Mr. Drake today is as healthy as a man
of fifty and ho was heard to remark to a
guest, that the length of a man's life did
not depend so much upon the years he
has lived.as upon the vitality he possess
es, and-that he considered his life about
Forty years of their married lifo was

Mr. Drako is eighty-one years old and
frequently walks from his residence to
Creston, a distance of three miles.
Among those "gathered together to cele
brate this event, Mr. and Mrs. Drake
could count their children, their child
ren's children, and theirchildren's child
ren. Besides the paper read by Mrs.
Drake were others read by Rev. J. Wil
son of Tracy Valley, Mrs. Alvinns Leach
of Tracy Valley, and Mrs. F. W. Ander-
man of Creston.
There were a number of valuable pres
ents, but what must have seemed most
valuable and precious to this aged couple
was the love and respect shown by their
relatives and their unnumbered friends
on this occasion. After enjoying the
hospitality of the house and repeating
many times the hope of being present at
their seventy-fifth anniversary, the
guests departed, one and all pronounc
ing it the most' enjoyable affair of the
Mr. and Mrs. John Drake, celebrated
their 60th wedding anniversary on Nov.
12th, at tho house of their daughter,
Mrs. W. C. Jackson. It was a most en
joyablo affair, -very informal, being a
reception instead of a party. They re
ceived calls from 80 friends between 2
and 8 o'clock p. m., including parties
from Leigh, Humphrey and Creston.
Refreshments were served to each group
of callers. Thoy were much surprised
to receive from their friends such tokens
of their respect and kind feeling, espe
cially the elegant chairs from Leigh and
Creston. The bride was dressed in black
silk with fine laces at neck and wrists and
wore the beautiful pin and ring which
wero among the gifts at their 50th anni
versary in 78. Among the guests were 20
members of the Nebraska branch of their
family. Papers of much interest were
read by Mrs. Drake, her daughter Mrs.
Anderman, by Mrs. L. Leech of Hum
phrey, and Rev. Joseph Wilson; all the
friends joined in singing familiar hymns,
led by the organ over which presided
Miss Emma Graham and Miss Nellie
Scudder. During the evening tho com
pany were charmed by the music of Dr.
Geer and his accomplished wife. It was
a most enjoyable affair. A.

The Sentinel says that:
Jas. H. Milslagel is siding up his ho
tel, which will improve the appearance
of it wonderfully.
John Mason returned from Columbus
Wednesday and is now very sick again.
J. H. Milslagle, while attempting to
stop a runaway team, fell down in front
of them; one horse stepping on him and
falling partly on him, everyone supposed
that saw him fall, was positive he would
be killed, but Jim all doubled up in a
knot came out from nnder the horses
smiling as pleasant as you please, and to
the many inquiries, "are you hurt?" said
"not much I guess." Bui after all it was
one of the most narrow escapes we ever
vu tn eye witness to.
