C. B. Whit mover was examined
Saturday for a first grade teacher's cer
tificate, by Connty Superintendent L. J.
Cramer. As Mr. W. is a talented young
man, industrious and ambitious, he suc
ceeded in his endeavor not very many
first grade certificates are applied for,
and it is quite an honor for a young man
or woman to be justly entitled to receive
such a certificate.
Mr. Gondring is not a member of
the city council's committee on printing;
this was a mistake of the writer's in last
week's Joubkal. In our very hasty
reading of the Telegram's bid we thought
Davis had so made it as to take in the
full rate for one publication in dairy and
weekly. In this it appears that we were
mistaken. It was two-thirds. If Davis
would come within one-third of the ex
act truth, even one-tenth of the time, he
might be partially excused in calling
other people liars once in five or six
The child of Mr. McKnight's af
flicted with diphtheria was buried yes
terday. It is but just to say that the
family moved to where they now are
without the knowledge of Mayor Ragatz
at all, and of course, without his direc
tion. No others of them are sick; the
funeral was private, and the family re
turned at once to the house, which has
been thoroughly disinfected since the
death. Everything has been done that
can be to prevent the spread of the dis
ease, since the knowledge of its presence
came to the mayor, and for this he is en
titled to the hearty thanks of all citizens.
Children Cry for
Miss Annie Hamer has been selected
to teach the primary department of the
second ward school, in place of Miss
Addie Ransdell, resigned. Miss Clara
Wheeler takes charge of the rural school
of the district near Mr. Heed's, where
Miss Hamer has -been teaching. We
suppose that MissBansdeH's resignation
was dne to the fact that she had been
censured by the board for a rather
severe chastisement of one of her pupils.
Outside of the matter of punishment
(and this, as far as we know, only in the
past two years), she has had an enviable
reputation as a teacher, and most cer
tainly deserved it well. It can no
donbt lie truthfully said, too, that hers
is not the only case of severe chastise
ment on the part of teachers of the city;
it may lie the only case where a com
plaint on the part of a parent has
reached the board, and an investigation
pressed. Parents are too loth to enter
complaint when the bounds of propriety
are overstepped, and, generally speak
ing, it is only when they keenly feel the
outrage that they will go to the board
of education. Even then, some prefer
(and as we have lieen informed) have
kept their children from school, rather
than have the worry and annoyance of
making a public matter of it.
We are in receipt of a copy of the
National City (Calif.) Record of May 7,
for which we are indebted to George B.
Smith. In looking over it we fine these
references to former Columbus friends:
"On Saturday, May 2d, the home of
Mr. and Mrs. Deford was the scene of a
very pleasant informal gathering. It
happened in the manuer of a bona fide
surprise on Mrs. Stenger, mother of Mrs.
Deford, in honor of her sixtieth birth
day. Between thirty and forty of her
neighbors and well-wishers dropped in
during the afternoon and evening, as
fancy or convenience dictated; all en
joying the animated conversation, as
well as the light refreshments which
Mrs. Deford had so deftly smuggled into
the house. Various presents also found
their way in, to remain as "loving wit
nesses," a constant reminder to Mrs.
Stenger of the many friends she has
made in National .City."
Lorenzo 1). Clark last week closed a
sale for seventy acres of land which will
bring to this county three wealthy fam
ilies from Helena, Montana. Before
leaving they made arrangements to plant
the whole seventy acres to lemons.
The same paper also contains an ac
count of nn interview with some of the
officers of the "Itata," the insurgent ves
sel from Chili.
The St. Paul Fire and Marine Ins.
Co. is now prepared to insure crops
against loss by hail through J. D. Stires,
agent. The honorable and prompt set
tlement of all losses by this company,
wherever it has accepted risks, with a
capital and surplus of nearly one and a
quarter million dollars and total assets
of nearly two millions are ample guar
antee that it will continue to deserve
your iatronage. It has paid losses in
Boone county alone the Kist two years
to the amount of $2,4G0.50 and given en
tire satisfaction. Every farmer can af
ford to insure, but few can afford to lose
this crop. Get a policy of J. D. Stires,
agent, office over State Bank, Columbus.
Suggestion is one of the most power
ful principles in human action, and out
of this comes the great value of com
panionship of every kind, association,
reading, etc. Suggestion, attention and
recollection of what you have seen,
heard, felt or read, then a will to shun
the evil and cling to the good, and here
comes the practical value of the news
paper. Casualties happen that with a
little more attention, or precaution of
some sort, might have been avoided and
precious lives saved. A record is made
of them, and the suggestions become
valuable beyond calculation, to hun
dreds and thousands of people.
Henry Ragatz & Co. began the re
moval of their large grocery stock at
three o'clock Monday morning, and hav
ing only a short distance to move and a
goodly number of helpers, the work was
comploted by eight o'clock, a. m., and
everything soon ready for businees again,
as usual. This firm has, by strict atten
tion to business, careful buying of stock
and fair treatment, gained favor with
their customers, and the handsome new
quarters shortly to be prepared for them,
will enable them to still more satisfacto
rily transact their increasing business.
Give them a call when in need of any
thing in their line.
In a letter from our old friend J. J.
Judd, he adds after the bustuesa part of
it: "We still live in the sunny south
(Luella, Ga.,) and think we will till this
fall; then will go for the north. I think
sometimes we will come to the old home
in Nebraska. I am disappointed in this
state; will have a short crop of fruit this
year; again the peach crop nearly a fail
ure; it has been very dry till now. We
had six weeks of dry weather, but cotton
and corn are looking good. Corn is
worth SI. 25 now, and Irish potatoes
$2.25 a bushel." Come back, there is
plenty of room and a very hearty wel
come. Hon. Guy C. Barnum, one of the old
settlers of Platte connty, a farmer, and
a man of far more than ordinary good
judgment, is spoken of for sheriff of
Platte count'. We have not learned
whether he is or is not the preferred
candidate of the alliance men of
this section of the county, but if
Mr. Barnum should determine to enter
the race for the nomination, he will make
it lively for some one.
F. A. Gatz and family came down
from O'Neill, Holt county, Friday, and
visited with relatives till Monday, re
turning home that day. Mr. G. has
prospered considerably in this world's
goods since he left Columbus. He is
engaged in the meat and ice business,
and just now, in addition? is erecting a
hotel, for rent. He thought Columbus
had improved a great deal since he was
The Platte connty politicians who
are figuring just now must not loose
sight of the fact that there is a man
among them who don't make much
noise, who hasn't feathered his own nest
by office, who has hosts of very warm
friends in the county, and who will,
when the time comes, be able to show
them as clean a pair of heels as there'll
be on the race track.

T. C. Thurston, special executive agent
of the N. Y. Central Life Insurance Co.,
and Charles Bal lance, agent for Nebras

Win. Terrell returned Thursday
from a sojourn of several monthB in the
west. He returned by way of Denver.
We learn from him that D. A. Lord is
looking well, also Dr. Elmer Sheets, the
latter of whom has sold his restaurant
and is practicing medicine exclusively
now; Joe. Elliott has made some suc
cessful deals in real estate recently;
Lute Jewell is a detective; Wra. Rout
son, who had been in the mountains
with a mining company, has returned to
Denver and is in the laundry business;
Alvin Coan is conductor on a cable car
line; Marshall Smith has' sold his gro
cery, and is now a soliciting agent;
Frank Smith, who owns a farm in Cal
ifornia, had recently written for Mrs.
Drake, to take care of his wife, who six
weeks ago was very ill; Byron Millett is
located at Portland and has recently in
vested in some lots in Olympia. Of
former Columbus people at Tacouut, he
mentions M. H. White and George Wan
del as in partnership, having two har
ness stores, both doing a good business,
and Dave Mowery is helping Wandel in
one of them; Dr. Schug has a clerical
position in a treasurer's office, and is
also practicing medicine, and getting
along nicely; Ed. Palm, a former car
penter here lives there; also the Wal
graf brothers, formerly in business here,
John is foreman for a company engaged
in erecting buildings and is doing very
well; at La Connor, a town of about five
hundred inhabitants, they have an en
terprising community, some general
merchandise stores carrying stocks of
thirty to fifty thousand dollars, and one
of their chief business men is reputed to
be worth half a million. Maynard Hurd
is located here, and though a young
lawyer, he gaiued notoriety almost im
mediately upon his arrival by the man
ner in which he conducted a case in
court, and has been by his own energy
and ability, steadily gaining in prestige
and business ever since; Mrs. Annie
Paulsen (nee Lnth) lives here, married
about six weeks ago to Mr. Nela Paul
sen, a good business man of the city;
Miss Mary Brownlow, a former teacher
in this county, also lives at La Connor.
Asa Clotber is at Mt. Vernon, Washing
ton, where he has a brother, Henry, a
prominent citizen. Mr. Terrell thinks
it a great country around the sound, but
too wet for him; as near as he could
learn it is about nine months of the
twelve wet, raining or drizzling or
cloudy and getting ready to rain, and
the other three months summer; it has
the finest timber he ever saw it is not
an uncommon thing to have trees that
will furnish a piece of timber a hundred
feet long and twenty inches square; it is
too cold to grow corn, or vegetables so
tender as cucumbers; the breezes off the
ocean are cool, and striking the moun
tains the moisture is precipitated in rain;
at La Connor the rainfall is sixty-eight
inches a year, and at some other places
on the sound much more. That is an
agricultural country. On many pieces
of land they have raised 100 to 150
bushels of oats, for which last year they
received 65 cents a bushel. Such land
is worth $100 to $300 an acre. Near
Tacoma and Seattle there are a good
many hop fields, and that product is re
garded as profitable.
The alliance and the democratic
elements are beginning to form tickets
for the coming campaign, but we haven't
heard of any republican slate as yet,
We think we can see indications, here,
there and yonder, that there are some
democrats and some so-called alliance
men, probable candidates, that are
pretty "thick" for political opponents
having separate, distinct, different and
inharmonious objects. It has not been
a very uncommon thing in Platte county
politics to see men of differing political
creeds "work" their several parties for
their own individual benefit It nay be
don tbia year. It is being don today.

The great dialect comedian is to be

Everybody has heard of him, but not
many Columbus or Platte county people
have seen him. If yon dont bear htm,

Am te SMrwalkn, Etc.
A little paragraph in last week's
Journal has roused two men to the ex
pression of at least a portion of their
Ed. Journal, Dear Sir; "Enclosed
clipping from a Columbus paper, please
hand to the very witty writer of the
rather slanderous little article in your
last Journal, regarding my sidewalk,
and ask him to put this in his pipe, and
By the way, I regard these everlasting
broken wooden walks as a nuisance and
my cinder walk far superior to any of
them. True, it costs me already a trifle
more than a wooden one would, and will
cost me more yet before it is quite
finished, but then it will alwajB be in
good repair, accidents as the one men
tioned in the clipping will be impossible
and the walk will look neater than the
Very respectfully yours,
"Little Eva Loshbangh while walk
ing along on south Olive street yester
day caught her foot in a break in the
walk and nearly broke it. The Telegram
has repeatedly mentioned the subject of
defective sidewalks but it seems that
there are still many that need repairing
and all such should be attended to at
once, before some one has cause to bring
a suit for damages on account of a
broken leg or arm."
Ed. Journal: I want to say that I
never was instructed to put down a
board sidewalk. If they want a better
sidewalk let them say so. I think mine
is lietter than the sidewalk in block 96,
built by the city, and also in lietter
shape for people who use sidewalks than
the same walk further along up town
near your own office, where there is a
pair of scales and an electric light pole.
My walk is up to grade, but I want to
put a little more onto it, so that when
thoroughly packed it will be just right.
Some people can see some things, but
can't see others. Do yon know that
there is a place in the city where a por
tion of the street is planted to trees and
another portion of it used as a potato
patch? One man, laughing, wants to
know if Uncle John Elliott, street com
missioner, is to have a share in those
The Journal is very sorry to think
that either of these men should take the
least umbrage at what was said. The
Journal has a cement sidewalk which
cost about three times what a plank one
wonld have cost, but is practically per
petual, so far as wear is concerned.
Even in our poverty, we would be
strongly inclined to do the same thing
again, especially if we had another busi
ness house to provide for. We much
prefer the solid sidewalk, even for resi
dence property, where it is to be placed
permanently, and don't cost too much.
In conclusion, gentlemen, one of you
(Mr. Jaeggi), has given us some infor
mation (mental pabulum), which by
feeding upon (thinking over), people
generally can profit thereby, and the
city have better sidewalks in every re
spect than boards. The Journal is al
ways in favor of new-fangled things
when they sre clearly an improvement
upon the old-fangled.
