Our old friend James Bell has put
in an electric light system for David
City, and they do say that it is as near
perfection as is attainable. That is the

surprised at the electric lights tallying

In ordering a change of address for
your Journal you should mention the
office to which it has been going as well
as the one to which you desire it sent;
if you give us the latter only, we may
lose considerable valuable timo hunting
for your name in our long list.
The American edition of the Christ
mas number of the London Illustrated
News (price 50 cents) is a superb pro
duction, containing a number of attrac

Now is the time (any day) to sub
scribe for the Journal, a local weekly
paper and the Nebraska Family Journal,
a state weekly paper, containing every
week thirty-two columns of choice read

paid in advance. We are receiving num
bers of new subscribers still there is
room for more. tf
The U. P. have made a radical
change in their time table which appears
in this week's Journal. We now have
a train called Columbus and Omaha
local, stopping here. The fast express
trains pass here at 12:10 p. m. Two
freight trains carry passengers. The
trains to Norfolk, Albion, etc, are ac
commodated to the change.
The sod house that goes to President
elect Harrison from Loup City, passed
through Columbus Friday. It is 8x16
ft., walls 6 ft. high, built on a flat car.
The interior contained Sherman county
vegetables enough to supply the presi
dent's family all winter, and the walls
decorated with paintings. The U. P.
and R. L roads carry the house free.
-People generally are not aware how
important an institution the Union Pa
cific railroad is for the city we mean in
the disbursement of money to employes
and others. The sum expended here in
various ways to citizens who use it every
month right at home among our business
houses, amounts in a year to $40,000 a
6nug sum that would be missed if with
drawn from local business.
The Journal's receipts for subscrip
tions are running over into the nineties.
It makes a man feel as though there was
a fine grain in human nature when a
subscriber says, "Well, I have been a
little neglectful and I find I am behind
a year with the Journal, just take these
6ix dollars and that will kind o' make
the account even up." That kind of
evening-up rejoices the printer's heart,

One of the most valuable uses of a
local paper is the information that it
gives of public sales, public matters of
all kinds of general interest and profit
to business men and others. This is one
great reason why the Journal is sought
after as an advertising medium in this
section of Nebraska. It has the largest
circulation of any paper published in

There are men in town the support
of whose families depends, day by day
upon what work they can get to do, day
by day. Those who have abundance
and to spare should endeavor to give
employment to the needy. You can find
something that needs to be done, that
will well repay you for the doing, and
make some man feel a little better in the
struggle to support his wife and precious
little ones dependent upon his labors.

Schuyler business men complain
that their present system of lighting
streets is unsatisfactory. If you are not
using electric light, like Columbus, try
it gentlemen, and yon will discard every
other method. Columbus owes more
than a little to the proprietors of the
two mills (which furnish the electric
lights), and to the Street-Car Company,
both of which public improvements add
greatly to the desirability of the city as
a place of residence.
The greatest fortunes, the best and
the cleanest are made in the rise of real
estate values. Ono of Kansas City's
richest inhabitants is a woman, Mrs.
Sarah W. Coals, aged 59 years, the value
of whoso possessions is placed at $10,
000,000. A piece of land that cost her
husband $2,000 is now 20 acres in the
heart of tbe city. Such a colossal for
tune may not be in store for investors in
Columbus property, but there is no
doubt a good opportunity here for rich
returns to men who know how to buy.
About a week ago J. L. Tripp, a
farmer living near Gardner, Neb., left
the country, unknown to his family and
his creditors. Ho was badly in debt at
tho timo of his departure W. A. Mc
Allister, Esq., who had some claims
against Tripp, on hearing of his de
parture started with the deputy sheriff
for bis place, to levy on his property.
Mr. Barker, of Silver Creek, whom Tripp
was owing, on hearing of his departure,
took John Huber and hired the switch
engine of this place and started for
Gardner, arriving there about an hour
before McAllister and Newman, and im
mediately placed an attachment on
Tripp's property. We hear M. H.White
and others are at a loss. The man leaves
a wife and several children in almost
destitute circumstances. Later Bar
ker and Huber were distanced by Mc
Allister, because the former had not
made an appraisement It seems that
Tripp's corn crop had been sold to three
or four different parties, each of whom
advanced him some money. The law
firms of Higgins & Garlow, McAllister &
Cornelius, and G. G. Bowman were most
actively engaged in hunting up mort
gaged property, attaching, etc. We un
derstand that chums amount to about
$2,500, and assets, all told, to about the
same sura. Tripp left Sunday, Dec 2,
and his whereabouts is not known.
The most flourishing cities in tbe
country are those that have judiciously
invested money in public improvements
of various kinds. To this general prin
ciple we do not believe there is a single
exception. As in a healthy condition of
the human system the pure blood circu
lates freely, so in the health of a busi
ness community, n very important par
ticular is the circulation of the medium
of exchange money. Keep something
doing, all the time. Keep things mov
ing. Better to wear out than to rust
out Give your laboring men employ
ment they will give you an equivalent
in return, never fear, and thus the com
munity will get what it needs and all
will be benefited. Use all the facilities
you can, and just as soon as you can.
In this way, they will be increased and
cheapened to the user. Columbus has
the telephone, the electric light water
works and the street car. With all of
these, yon will be benefited by using
them when you have need of them and
when it would be to your advantage.
Thus, too, the facilities would be en
larged and others be added from time
to time, as the inventive genius of the
age devises something new and valuable.
In a few years as the old pumps get out
of order and more people use water from
the works, it will be a benefit all around,
the works will be improved still further,
and water for all the purposes of life in
a city can be furnished in
first - class style and at very
moderate prices. So with the telephone
and electric light These appliances are
all in good shape in Columbus, but our
citizens, we notice, are not using the
street cars as much as they might for
their own good. Now while the line
does not belong to the public, it is a
benefit to the public, and it is one of
those enterprises that the public must
use in order to have its benefits extend
ed. The elevator and the street-car
have increased the business capacity of
cities at least two-fold, and while we
cannot, as yet, claim for Columbus, great
magnitude as a city, we have all the im
portant public improvements which go
toward helping it double up in sixe and
population in the very near future; it is
a doctrine as strong as truth itself that
those who use their talents or their
means judiciously, will have them duly

The dwelling-house of John Warnick
at the foot of Olive street, together with
a good portion of its contents was burn
ed to the ground.
Mrs. Warnick in explaining the origin
of the fire said that she was starting a
fire inthe'eook stove, using brush. She
didn't know how it was, whether the
brush had knocked the kerosene lamp
down or whether it had exploded by the
heat, anyhow, the lamp succeeded in
doing considerable harm. Mrs. Warnick
grabbed up her babe and ran out of the
house with it, and returning quickly
secured an older child, who has both
hands pretty severely; blistered. Her
own skirts were burned to the waist.
Mrs. Conway did excellent service with
a bucket of water, perhaps saving the
life of Mrs. Warnick.
It is said that the loss on building
and contents was at least $500 with no

Last Sunday afternoon between four
and five o'clock, fire was noticed, under
tho stairs, in Frank Koch's barn, six
miles northeast of Columbus, in Bis
In the barn at the timo were six
horses, two calves, some hay and quite a
large quantity of oats. several hundred
The fire was undoubtedly incendiary,
as there were tracks of a horso to the
barn from the rear, and the fire had been
started in bay undor tho stairway. The
loss, had the fire not been noticed and
extinguished in time, would probably
have not lieen less than $2,000.
Mr. Koch knows of no enemy of his,
and certainly no one with the least spark
of manhood in his make-up would do
such a deed. He offers $75 reward for
the apprehension of the scoundrel.
If the newspapers of Nebraska could
have their way, every town would be, as
they can bo, centers of manufacturing
industries. The Madison Reporter tells
it in such a way as to be applicable to
every community in Nebraska: "Every
good citizen ought to favor manufactur
ing interests and public improvements
in the community in which, they live,
and use every means in their power, oven
if some sacrifices have to be made in the
beginning. Protect the industries you
have and make new ones start and grow.
We must have them. Each one started
more than pays the community who en
courage it Let Madison's merchants
decide what they want that is in their
means to procure and then set about
earnestly to procure it Success will
surely follow such efforts."
