nois, journeyed to Nebraska for his
health; in three weeks, he has gained a
good appetite, and seven pounds of flesh,
is enthusiastic over the pure air and
good water of the Platte valley, will buy
a farm and settle down. It is his delib
erate opinion that the man who knows
Illinois and Nebraska thoroughly and
will stay in the former state, in prefer
ence, ought to be shot.
J. D. Booth, a young man aged 17,
died at the residence of Mr. Severene,
this city, Monday, Sept. 8, of inflamma
tion of the bowels. The young man was
traveling overland with his parents from
Tyner, Smith county, Kas., to Arizona,

tax-payers of the county will be satisfied.
Norfolk endeavored to form a stock
company in order to secure the estal
lishment of a beet sugar factory, but
failing in that they have got up a
guaranty bond to those locating such
factory and refinery that at least 2300
acres shall lie planted to sugar beets,
cultivated, harvested and delivered to
such factory, guaranty to extend not
longer than three years. The guaranty
was to be presented to Mr. Oxnard of
Grand Island last jroek.
Sunday afternoon, as Miss Kate
Early and Miss Delilah Davis were driv
ing past the Fleming hotel, their horse
became fractions and began to make
progress backwards instead of forwanl.
Mr. Rogers of the U. P. force, got into
the vehicle, but the horse was still ob
streperous, and backed and kicked until
they were all thrown out. Nobody was
seriously hurt, although Miss Early lost
consciousness for a little while, and Dr.
Clark was called to her relief.
Col. J. R. Meagher tells us that
there were three deaths at Grand Island
during the reunion, and three births.
One child was trampled to death by the
surging crowd when the gunboats were
maneuvering; another was struck in the
head by a ball; and another was left by
its mother, in a baby carriage at one side
of the tent, while she was washing some
clothes at the opposite side; when the
mother returned, the child was found
strangled to death, its neck caught be
treen spokes in the carriage wheel.
John C. Van Housen, resident near
Richland, Colfax county, has been nomi
nated for state senator for this district,
by the democrats. Mr. Van Housen has
been a resident of Colfax county for
twenty-two years, is well known, espe
cially by many of the old settlers, and
would no doubt do credit to himself and
party, should he happen to be elected.

Dan Condon was here Sunday on his
return from Washington and Oregon
where he had been looking after a rail
road contract. Dan says that country
is flat the real estate boom all gone out
of it Dan says that if the extra water
that generally falls here during the
rainy season were 6tored as it is there
for future use in irrigating the land,
Nebraska soil would out-do by far any
thing in the west. The hop product was
the biggest thing he saw in the way
of land product, but he says that he has
seen on Shell creek, without irrigation,
a bigger crop of wild hops to the acre.
Yesterday morning, Hon. Guy C.
Barnum was a little too late in getting
to the B. & M. depot, the train having
just pulled out for Lincoln as Guy came
up, puffing and blowing for dear life, so
says our informant Now, ordinarily,
for the common people, railroad corpo
rations don't instruct their conductors
to stop their trains and let on passen
gers, but, in this case, whether it was
the peculiarly distressed look on Guy's
face that softened the heart of the con
ductor, or whether it was the instinctive
fear of the bloated corporation, for the
farmer fighter, deponent saith not, but
Guy went by rail to the fair.
The Pawnee Indians, who used to
occupy what is now known as Nance
county, Neb., and whose "seat of empire"
in these parts was lastly at Genoa, have
been for a number of years in the In
dian territory. They own 283,020 acres
of land; their corn crop, 1,200 acres, is
almost a failure this season, but they
raised 4,000 bushels of wheat Two
thirds of the tribe speak English and 124
children are in school. Many of the
Pawnees live, dress and furnish their
houses like the whites, and Agent Wood
reports that the tribe is anxious to have
their land allotted, and he suggests, be
sides this, that citizenship be conferred
upon the Indians.
Annie Shaffroth, a young daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Shaffroth, met
death Tuesday of last week in a peculiar
manner. Parents and two children had
been out for a buggy ride. On return
ing, the infant was taken into the house
by Mrs. Shaffroth, while Mr. Shaffroth
took care of the horses. Annie evident
ly attempted to get out of the buggy and
in doing so, she fell, her neck being em
braced by the spokes of the wheel and
she choked to death before being dis
covered. The friends of the parents
have the sympathy of all their acquaint
ances in the peculiarly distressing death
which has deprived them of a very af
Among all the social events that
have taken place in the county this fall,
second to hone is the party given by
Miss Bertha Stull and her brother Ar
thur, at their home in the valley last
Friday evening. A large circle of friends
from Osceola, Shelby and Stromsburg
gathered early in the evening and pass
ed the time very enjoyably until they
were called to partake of a supper of
good things that can be found only on
a folk county farmer s table. After
supper, the music and other entertain
ments continued until the wee small
hours began to lengthen into big ones,
and all returned home feeling that they
had spent a very pleasant vsning.

A VERY SAD ACCIDENT.
A Colntnbnx Lad Will Probably Low Hi
Sunday afternoon, Luther Stewart,
who lives near Martin Reagan's, east of
the city, where the accident we are about
to relate occurred, came into town with
the unconscious, wounded body of Jo
seph Abts, a Columbus lad about thir
teen years old and son of J. P. Abts of
this city. The facts, as we learn and
believe them to be are that young Abts
and Albert Schraru had gone hunting,
driving a donkey in a cart. Schram had
got out to shoot chickens, and Abts had
driven the cart away from where Schram
had left him; some chickens were started
up, and Schram shot at them, and, un
fortunately, a few of the shot hit the boy
in tho cart, some striking near the nose,
and one penetrating the skull above the
right ear. Up to the time of writing this,
Tuesday noon, young Abts has been un
conscious, and Monday afternoon Drs.
Mnrtyn, Evans and Arnold, assisted by
Drs. Stillman and Clark, performed n
surgical operation, removing a portion
of the skull, and taking away the clotted
blood underlying it. The doctors say
that he has a hundred chances to recover
now, where he had one, before the ope
ration. There is not the slightest breath of
suspicion that the sad casualty was any
thing but purely accidental. Albert
Schram is n son of Mike Schram, dee'd,
is seventeen years old, of good disposi
tion, and always a great friend of the
injured lad. There is no doubt but be
was greatly shocked by the accident,
dazed and disconcerted, but no one for a
moment thinks that Schram would in
tentionally wrong young Abts.
At the regular meeting Saturday after
noon at Fitzpatrick's hall there were
present President J. S. Freeman, Sec
retary R. S. Dickinson and some eight
or ten others.
The election of officers was postponed
until the next regular meeting, the first
Saturday in October.
A motion was made to revise the con
stitution so as to admit merchants, me
chanics and laborers to membership.
After considerable discussion the motion
was withdrawn. It seemed to be the
prevailing opinion that the discussion of
farm topics, for which tho Uuion was
organized, would not be specially inter
esting to other classes of laborers.
On motion G. C. Barnum was added
to the committee of the alliance consist
ing of S. O. Rai'mond, E. O. Wells and
A. W. Clark, to arrange for the inde
pendent picnic to be held in ColumbuB
between the 22d and 26th of September.
There has been some money contributed
that was not used for the Dech meeting,
which, it is understood, will be used for
A meeting was appointed for Satur
day next, Septemder 13th, at 1 o'clock
sharp, to which everybody is invited to
listen to G. C. Barnum on finance, J. S.
Freeman on class legislation, and to I.
L. Albert, whose subject was not an
nounced. Teachers, don't pull the ears of your
pupils, or subject them to any other un
usual or cruel punishment. There is
entirely too much tendency in teachers
to become autocratic and dictatorial.
Under the best of conditions, the chil
dren (especially the young children un
der your charge), are comparatively at
your mercy a good portion of the time;
you can make life to them a very griev
ous burden, a heavy yoke, or you can
lighten their cares and lift their bur
dens, and show them the way of intelli
gence, and help to make the days bright
and joyous to the little people. Think
how ranch ear-pulling, and whipping or
standing on the floor you would do, if
they were, physically, as strong as yon.
The story of father and son hits this
part of the subject exactly. The father
says: "John, do you know why I am
going to lick you?" John replied, after
giving tho question a little thought,
"Well, I don't know, except it's because
you are bigger than I am."
Among matters passed upon by the
school board at their last meeting were:
a change of arithmetics from McVicker's
to Gotf's, the district paying the price of
exchange, thus making no expense to
pupils; Miss Pollock's transfer from a
Second ward to a First ward depart
ment, objected to by her, was not chang
ed; a committee was authorized, if they
think best, redistrict the north side of
the city so that a portion of the pupils
could attend the First and Second ward
schools, instead of, as now, over-crowding
the Third; the sixth grade of the
First ward were advanced to Mr.Leavy's
room, and the eighth transferred to the
Second ward school.
