The following fable from Platte
county's democratic organ, the Tele
gram, is interesting mainly because it is
a fable, and applies to something else
than hotels: "With the sweet. balmy
breezes of June there comes a refreshing

a long-felt want' in Columbus. We only
have six with two more in sight."

where the latter came not regularly, by
any means, and said that everything was
overdone too many men for the work
to be done.

Several of thePythian delegation from

R. H. Henry says that in some parts
of Dakota, (where he has lately been),
they have not had rain since last August
and that small grain, in consequence, is
very short. In some places, the rains
have been sufficient and crops look well."

E. A. Gerrard in the Looking Glass
of the Fourth, delivered a very excellent
address, commemorative of die virtues
of th forefathers and indicative of the
sort of men needed in these times, "men

The Columbus Telegram informs
tho third party people that tho non
partisan prohibition movement in this
state is only a scheme to hoodwink them,
and that is the child of the republican
party. The Telegram cannot boast of
ever having made a guess that came
within several miles of the truth, and
this last is about as close as any. It will
be remembered that during tho cam
paign last fall the Democrat, which was
the ancestor of the Telegram, gravely in
formed the temperance people that the
republican party of the state had no in
tention of submitting the prohibitory
amendment, bnt was simply trying to
hoodwink them. The Telegram should
hire a new guesser. Central City Non
pareil. While coming into town the other
day, on this side of the river a gentleman
saw a loving couple (evidently not mar
ried, and it was quite evident they had
seen each other before, too), strolling
along on the sandy road. As they look
ed too happy to be disturbed, even the
horses seemed loth to intrude on their
happiness, the driver would have stopped
awhile, when just at the critical moment,
as our hero was going to claim the kiss,
the wagon, which had hitherto been
going along in a bed of sand, slipped
into a rnt and of course spoiled it all.
They both turned with a start, and the
driver with duo consideration for the
disturbed parties said "curse the
wagon,' it somewhat relieved the em
barrassment, but the driver still curses
the wagon, when he thinks of "what
might have been to the happy couple.
It is presumed that the kiss, when it
did come, was ripe and sweet, and a
little more relishable because of the
squeak of the whecL
P. T. Heckman of Omaha has been
visiting with J. D. Brewer. He is a me
chanical genius, and The Joukxal would
like to see his talents in use in this city.
A worker in wood and iron, he could
establish here an enterprise that would
not only be a paying investment for
himself but of very great benefit to this
community. Every industry that will
add to the number of persons engaged
in useful occupations giving them con
stant employment at fair wages, will
help to make this community what
Providence sefems to have designed it
should be, a manufacturing center in the
midst of a flourishing agricultural re
gion. Let us do all we can to put every
acre within a radius of twenty miles
under thorough cultivation, and encour
age every manufacturing plant, that
offers, under competent management
and favorable terms, to. use raw mate

good market for their products. For
every man of us, each in his own way,
there is abundant work that will be ben

The W. Y. Bissell hose team won the
race in 4(5 seconds.
The display of fire works m the open
space- east of Franklin "square in the
evening was very good and witnessed by
a large crowd of people.
Columbus, as said the correspondent
of the Omaha Republican, ''filled her
pledges loyally and royally."
The number of Knights in attendance
was not nearly so large as some antici
pated and as the committee w.ero led to
believe by promises made and accommo
dations asked for.
The fair grounds were fixed up in fine
style; tents were numerous and accom
modations of all kinds most excellent.
Wood and water in abundance, and the
grounds brilliantly lighted by electricity.
The program as announced was car
ried ont as nearly as possible, and the
gathering may bo called a success when
it is taken into consideration the facts
of the limited number of uniformed
divisions in the state and this the first
stajj&eccampuient, and also that the
ifaysTUevoted to it included the Fonrth
of July, which fact probably was the
strongest factor against the encamp
ment, most members of the order being
business men and averse to leaving
home during the Fonrth.
The Columbus Knights- feel especially
thankfnl to Omaha, Lincoln and Hebron
divisions for their presence, at great ex
pense and sacrifice of time, and will not
soon forget their brethren of these
The prizes awarded were for best
drilled division: Hebron No. 21), first;
Omaha No. 12. second; Marshall No. 10
of Lincoln, third; Capt. Berger of Lin
coln received the prize as the Iest
captain in the Nebraska brigade.
So far as we can learn, in every im
portant particular Columbus did her
full duty in regard to the encampment
and hr gnests. as she does on all occa
sions of the kind.
