At the M. E. church Sunday Sept
15th, by the pastor, H. L. Powers, as
follows: Sermon at 10:45 a. m., topic

the choir, from 7:45 to8p.ni. Compli

Sunday for this conference year, and
D. L. Bruen is a candidate for re
election as supervisor, but there seems
to be some organized opposition to bis
return. We don't know who is likely to
be his republican opponent, but if
Bruen is to be left at home somebody
must work pretty hard, and early and
late to that end, because David is a
caution to work and he gets at it when
and where he is least expected.
The lecture of Rev. H. L. Powers at
the M. E. church, on the great Johns
town Hood, was not very largely attend
ed, owing to the short time allowed for
advertising the matter. Those who did
attend, however, were well repaid. His
description of the awful flood and its
harrowing details were painted in a
vivid manner, and excited the closest
attention of the audience. Madison
Leander Gerrard has made the city
a proposition that ought to be accepted.
He will donate ten acres for a city park
provided the city will expend on the
same $250 for ten successive years.
Nothing adds to a city more than a well
arranged park and Columbus may well
feel proud that she has a citizen who is
able tomake such a proposition. By all
means let it be accepted and work on
the park begun.
From now on till after election our
Platte county voter readers will be in
terested in the movements of men who
are candidates for office, and in what
their friends do for them. It is com
mendable in a man that he has an
ambition to serve his fellows in office,
but you just vaitch the men who do
their duty fully, and those who are in
office merely "to make a stake" out of
it These, don't you help nominate.

Qua G. Becher has anwonnced him
self as s candidate for reaomination as
coanty treasurer. Mr. Becher has cer
tainly made a most excellent treasurer,
excelled nowhere for the faithful per
formance of duty. We know of no other
candidate before the republican conven
tion and most certainly, according to
common usage, he is well deserving of a
renomination. The public long ago
teamed his worth as an honest, faithful
and capable business man; they did well

George Thomazin, one of Platte
county's sturdy farmers who has the in

opponents select good fair men, so that
if by any chance they get elected the
public service will stflT be in good hand?.
George.must keep his weather eye to

William Taylor, who has been keep
ing a barbershop for severs! years in
this city, was pronounced insane by the
board of insanity last Friday. He has
not been well for some time and was
taken last week to relatives near Leigh,
thinking that might help him, but in
stead he got worse and was brought
back Thursday last He was taken to
Norfolk Friday evening by his brother,
C. M. Taylor, and H. P. Coolidge. The
doctor thinks the losing of his child in
the spring, affected him greatly. Mr.
Taylor's relatives and acquaintances will
hope that a short time, under special
treatment, may remove the mental cloud
under which he is passing, and restore
him to health and friends.
A close observant thinks he can de
monstrate that the brains of a good,
active, healthy man are renewed once
every two months. If this is so, any
man who is the present slave to a bad
habit, can free himself if he has will
enough to strive against it until after he
has had several fresh supplies of brain
matter, and has become a new man
throughout, so to speak. Tbe main
fault with people generally, Dr. Franklin
thought, is that they are not persistent
enough, are too easily discouraged. Now
this fact in natural history ought to en
courage even the most besotted and
wretched human being to "try again,"
and keep trying, rather than succumb
to what he knows to be wrong.
Quite a number of farmers here
abouts report that their entire crop of
water melons has been destroyed by
some person or persons unknown. In
the neighborhood of Mr. Plumb there
are several patches; at Martin Regan's
and Mr. Marshall's and at G. W. Ste
vens's. Mr. Reagan says that his was
not a pilfering of one or two ripe melons
to eat, but the wholesale destroying of
an acre of growing melons; at Stevens's
there were forty-five melons destroyed,
cut in two. The wanton destruction of
fruit in this manner should be met with
the severest punishment, and the man
or boy who would do this, would also do
far worse than this, and does not de
serve to live in a civilized community.
The lecture delivered by Bev. H. L.
Powers of Columbus, in Henry Hall, last
Friday night was intensely interesting.
As advertised, his subject was "As seen
from the Banks of the Conemaugh, the
Valley of death." The speaker has a
very strong though not harsh voice; a
splendid flow of language, and his de
scription, though largely after the style
of the newspaper accounts of the fearful
Johnstown disaster, contained that pa
thos and minuteness which riveted the
attention of the hearers throughout the
entire discourse. Those who neglected
to attend, missed hearing a true, thrill
ing, and most pathetic account of the
most terrible and fearful disaster that
has happened for centuries. There was
a pure, moral, religious tone to the entire
lecture which made its benefits equal its
interest Platte Center Argus.

J. J. Buchanan of Emerson, Talcott &
Co., Rockford, DL, was in the city Satur
day on business. He was a Union man
in Pike county, Mo., during the war, and
was well acquainted with our former

Union man in Pike county during those
troublous times, and helped to hold the
rebel element level.
Prof. L. J. Cramer has announced
himself ready to continue to serve as
county superintendent of public instruc
tion, subject to the action of the repub
lican convention. There is room for
only one opinion as to Mr. Cramer's fit
ness, made so by the success he has
achieved during the term he has occu
pied the office. He had had abundant
experience, not only or merely as teach
er, but as a principal teacher and super
intendent of city schools, and those of
us who knew the man, were sure he
would make just such a county superin
tendent as he has made, watchful of
every interest and faithful in the dis
charge of duty. Every business needs
at the head of it a good, sound judg
ment a level head. He who undertakes
the duties of this office should have a
comprehensive view of his field of labor,
seeing all the facts as they are, and well
knowing what these ought to be. The
line of progress must be fully appre
hended and the means necessary to bring
it about Mr. Cramer knows that, so far
the county superintendent's duties
reach, tbe most effectual means for bet
tering the schools is to secure a thor
oughly equipped teacher for each school
and so he intelligently directs his efforts
toward this result, and Ins good work is
telling upon the schools of the county.
In this office Platte county has blunder
ed, wofully blundered, three separate
and distinct times that we know of, but
Mr. Cramer's nomination by the repub
licans two years ago was in the best
interests of our schools. We know of
no other candidate for the nomination
by the republicans, and we suppose
that there will be none. The opposition
might as well leave that part of their
ticket blank, and let us have no contest 1
over this office, this time, at least

the dwKsjsrg of duty, he had to hang
s man, he would see that it was ss eon
sidemtely and as kindly done as such an
act could be, aad this is the sort of
sheriff Platte county wants. His duties
are, at best, usually nnplessstit for all
aides, bat it has never been said of
Bloedorn and will not be that he added
to the discharge of an unpleasant duty,
the insolence of office. Entering the
public service under very discouraging
circa instances, and having unusual dif
ficulties to contend with, Mr. Bloedorn
has done exceedingly well and is en
titled to a second term.
At the regular meeting of the city
council Saturday evening, a petition to

the month in both cases were nearly the

the wind from south and southeast dur

extent and may have shortened the esti

time it has tended to perfect the ripen
