that he has known of since childhood to

was created. The writer says that when

We understand that the house now
occupied as the Congregational church
will shortly be removed westward three
doors, and fitted up as a first-class fur
niture establishment. It was so con
structed originally as to be easy, of
adaption for business purposes at any
time the congregation might wish to
dispose of it. It is presumed that the
time has come for them to erect a very
nice, commodious church structure.
The Omaha World-Herald gives in
the following paragraph a glimpse at
one phase of city life; we suppose the
man mentioned is one who for many
years lived in this vicinity: "Belle Cray
croft, alias Belle Costello, a white wo
man, who some time ago married Henry
Calloway, a negro, and has lived with
him since, this afternoon filed a com
plaint in police court charging Callo
way with illicitly living with another
Friday morning at 5:20, an east
bound freight train was wrecked at a
small bridge one mile east of Grand
Island. Spikes had been removed so
that the track spread. The engine pass
ed over safely but a dozen cars were
thrown off. Robert Gentleman, (a cousin
of Mrs. D. C. Kavanaugh of this city)
was engineer on the train; when he saw
what was wrong, he reversed his engine
and jumped from the cab, mashing his
heel; nobody was seriously hurt.
Sunday night at 1:30 an attempt
was made to wreck a train on the Union
Pacific near and east of Chapman station.
A tramp who heard the miscreants at
work, but who supposed then that they
were railroad workmen,, approached the
party, but was fired upon by them. He
made his escape and notified the operat
or at Chapman, who held Xo. 17, the
east bound freight, and saved it from
being wrecked. Spikes had been pulled
and two rails removed. Xo. 17 was the
train that was ditched last week near
Grand Island. Railroad men think that
some one, for spite, is after No. 17.
There is a Bcheme on foot (with
headquarters at Lincoln) to shorten the
Union Pacific by running around via
Lincoln, by the Rock Island, and an ex
tension to Shelton, which it is claimed
would save about twenty miles. The
Lincoln folks say that "Columbus, Cen
tral City, Grand Island and Fremont
would of course object, but some trains
would yet run over the old line." Yes,
and the government would take the "old
line," which belongs to it, and we would
probably have 6ome object lessons in
cheap freights that would astonish Van-
derbilt and Jay Gould, and be fun for all
the rest of us. Fremont Herald.
Columbus is to have another fine
brick block this year. It will be on the
corner of North and Twelfth, three
business establishments, facing south.
The first one, on the corner, 22x72 will
be owned by Pollock & Evans; the sec
ond by J. E. Xorth and the third by the
Real Estate Investment Company. The
building is to be of brick, pressed brick
front, and will be two 6tories high. The
gentlemen engaged in this enterprise are
to be congratulated on their energy and
public spirit, and will doubtless realize
that it will be a paying investment to
them, individually. The new structure
will certainly be a credit to the city, and

The wives, mothers and daughters
or Bellwood called a meeting and "de

the female and destroyed her habitation.
The tent was full of "gentlemen" of the
town when the raiders arrived, but in
stead of staying by the female, they
broke and ran like cowardly curs, and
afterwards threw eggs and ears of corn
at perhaps their own mothers, sisters or
wives. So says a correspondent in the
Gazette. Whether a tent or a fine man

should be no rest until the nuisances

The Bee Lincoln correspondence of
the 19th has this reference to the explo
sion of the previous Monday whereby
Wm. Dineen lost his life: "It appears
that Dineen is not the person to blame
for the accident, as at the time he turned
the stream or cold water into the boiler
he was acting under tho instructions or
William Lawlor, the foreman or the gas
works. Dineen is not a regular engineer,
and although he proressed to be only a
fireman he was put in charge or the
loiIer, but on account or his inexperi
ence was directed to follow the instruc
tions of the foreman. It was while
obeying the orders of Lawlor the ratal
explosion occurred that robbed Dineen
and Maggard or their lives. A regular
engineer was employed to run the en
gine at night, and he was late in coming
to his work. Dineen who was a gener
ous rellow, offered to run the engine
until the night man came. It was long
after. his time for quitting 6 o'clock
when the accident occurred."
We learn that W. H. Hess, formerly
of this county ,is sjoken of as supervisor
for District No. 4, San Diego county,
Cal. We are not at all surprised at this,
as Mr. Hess is an intelligent man who
keeps himself up with the times and
takes a lively interest in all public mat
ters. He is a staunch republican and
an old soldier. -and wherever these two
facts are appreciated at their full value,
along with other good qualities, Mr
Hess would naturally lie turned to, to
represent his fellow citizens in official
station. Two terms in succession he
served for his locality here as supervisor,
giving excellent satisraction, and ir his
neighbors in the land of sunshine and
flowers shall select him for a like posi

One Kansas farmer, who has an orchard
or 100 acres, gets 8f,2TiO ibr the rrnit on
it, and doesn't touch it himself. A for
mer feeder to the house here, located in
eastern Ohio, writes th.it 'he has been
traveling over three counties, and hasn't
seen in all three, apples enough to fill
ten barrels. It is said that the supply
or winter apples will lie short this year,
and that, consequently, prices will have
an upward tendency. The fruit that has
leen grown, other kinds as well as ap

charine, owing presumably to the in
tensity of the sun's rays.
