A farmer suggests that if Mr. Swift,

putting up an immense farmers' home,

The Albion News strikes a good
point when it says that the matter of

the candidates there may, indeed, be a

to dictate. The people have far too

Last Wednesday morning, Paul
Krause arose early and filled a boiler
with water and lit the gasoline stove.
He then set the alarm clock to arouse
him in three-quarters of an hour, and
went to bed. The alarm woke him up,
but he felt weak and prostrated. One of
the children was gasping and crying
and seemed to be quite sick, and leaving
it in the care of his wife, he hastened for
Dr. Lewis. When they returned, Mrs.
Krause was lying on the floor nearly
overcome, and the other child was near
ly senseless. The doors and windows
were opened and it was found that a ca
nary bird in its cage was dead. The fam
ily were all desperately ill for some time
but finally recovered. The cause
of the strange attack is unknown,
but it acted very much as though they
had been overcome by gas, but it is a se
rious question if gasoline ever works in
that way. It was a narrow escape, and
an experience that they do not care to
repeat Boone County Argus.
The teachers' institute closed Thurs

history of the Revolutionary War, and
Life and Travels of Gen. Grant. Friday
morning the teachers met at the depot
to bid Prof. Clemmons good-bye and
surprised him by presenting him with a
silver cup and saucer. He thanked them
in a few remarks. Prof. Clemmons
made manv frwr?'? while here.
Farmers who have a number of good
cows, for which there is a very poor
market just now, would do well to pre

of Mr. Frank Stevenson they pay all that
the current market will justify them in
giving, and you will find them everyway
worthy of your confidence. Ask their
patrons for the past several years wheth
er it has not paid them well to sell to
the Columbus Creamery, and you will
find a universal "yes"" in response.

The Lindsay Times is regarded as a
democratic organ. In the last issue oc
curs the following. Coming before the
convention, it is intended, doubtless, not
to -affect the election,' but to have a
bearing on the nominations. "From the
simple fact that a man has occupied the
position of county clerk, sheriff, treasur
er, or what not, for a term of two, four
or six years, it does not stand to reason
that the people have got to vote for him
again, even if he has made a good and
faithful servant to the county. Make a
change. When an officer's time expires
elect someone else to fill his place. He
will probably suit the people better, in
fact he may be better fitted for the
office in every particular. This sounds
something like treason" to the bosses,
don't it? Is it possible that the Times
is to be allowed to continue in this

Columbus has now greater railroad
facilities than any other city in central
Nebraska, and this one fact is just be
ginning to tell strongly in her favor. If,
now, some other of our capitalists will
imitate the example of J. S. Murdoch
and Leander Gerrard, and erect cottages
which can be rented or sold at reasona
ble figures, they will be doing this com

reap a benefit themselves. There is a
demand for -good houses, and a brisk
demand for lots on which to build.
