M. K. Turner of Columbus, Ne
braska, is visiting friends in Cadiz and
vicinity. Mr. Turner is a Cadiz boy,
born and bred. About twenty-five years
ago he went west "to grow up with the
country." At that time Columbus was
a small village, now it is a flourishing
city. He is engaged in farming and in
publishing the Columbus Journal, one
of the leading and influential journals of
Nebraska. He looks natural, and the

here are glad to meet him. Cadiz (O.)
While in search of news, we over
heard a merchant and a customer in dis
pute over some dishes; the customer
asserting his wife broke too many dishes
in baking the food. Always glad if we
can be a peacemaker in families, we
submit the following from an exchange:
HArtnenware which is to oe used in
baking should be tempered by putting
the dishes into cold water over the fire
and bringing the water gradually to the
boiling point When the water boils
around them, remove them from the
fire, and let them remain in the water
until it becomes cold.
Some parties hunting near the city
one day last week saw what they sun-
posed to be a white prairie chicken but
failed to capture it. Several of these
birds have been seen in this state this
winter. They are not prairie chickens
but ptarmagins. Webster says of them:
"The plumage is ash-colored and white
in summer; almost entirely white in
winter. They inhabit the lofty moun
tainous heights of Europe and America
and only descend within range of vege
tation occasionally, to feed on berries,
insects, etc. They belong to the grouse

Last Wednesday morning a young
child of Gus Windish's had a narrow
escape from death by the flames. Mrs.
Windish left the house for a few mo
ments and upon her return found the
interior part of the house afire. Prompt
action on the part of Mrs. Windish ex
tinguished the flame, but she was badly
burned about the face and head. In a
very few moments more the house would
have been consumed and the little child,
less than a year old, would doubtless
have perished. An alarm was not
Fred Sacrider, son of J. H. Sacrider
who lives about four miles north of
Monroe, met with a very painful acci
dent last Saturday week. He was out
hunting when the gun was accidentally
discharged, the entire load going through
his foot, striking on the top of his in
step. Drs. Martyn & Evans of this city
were called and amputated about one
half of the foot, and the unfortunate
young man will be a cripple for the
balance of his life. He walked nearly a
quarter of a mile after the accident to
reach a neighbor's house.
A. Heitkemper, the cigar maker, has
sold his property in the eastern part of

will locate his factory somewhere up

Nebraska, Mr. H. said that it undoubt
edly meant much for our state. He said
he had tested Nebraska tobacco, and
while the tobacco had never been
properly handled or cured, yet he was
well pleased with the result.
Yesterday morning it was reported
that the residence of D. D. Lynch of
Platte Center was burglarized Monday
night. Among other things missed was
a very valuable sealskin cloak, which we
J learn belonged to a young lady who is
visiting Mr. Lynch's family. Deputy
Sheriff Campbell left for the scene of the
robbery about 10 o'clock yesterday, but
we are unable to learn any further par
ticulars. Last Tuesday forenoon while Mrs.
John Eggars was making ready to do
her week's washing, and had filled the
washing machine with scalding hot

We herewith present to the public a
portrait of Carbon's genial bonafice, Mr.
O. H. Archer of the Scranton house.
Those who have had tne pleasure of en
joying his hospitality will remember the
Scranton house at Carbon. This well
known hostlery was established at Car
bon in 1883. Mr. Archer leased the prop
erly in July 1889. A year later the
building was destroyed together with a
large part of the city. Lewis & Ander
son, the owners of the building at the
time, erected a one-story building on
the original site and occupied it in
August, 1890. They conducted the hotel
until April last, when Mr. Archer pur
chased the entire property of them. He
was ambitions to give Carbon a good
hotel and establish for it a reputation
among the traveling public. On the 17th
day of April he therefore contracted for
the enlargement of the building by the
addition of a second story. The build
ing was thoroughly remodeled and im
proved during the past summer and today
as a comfortable and enticing place for
the traveler or pleasure seeker has no
superiors in the state. It has fifteen
nicely appointed sleeping rooms.
Mr. Archer is a thoroughly western
man. A Virginian by birth, his boyhood
days were spent in Wisconsin, and when
he reached his majority he followed the
course of the star of empire, westward,
and settled in Nebraska. Mr. Archer
saw Nebraska grow up and witnessed
the most important changes in the
state. He learned the printing business
when a young man and followed the "art
preservative" until he left Nebraska.
It was in the latter state that he married
the lady who is now such an acceptable
hostess at the Scranton house. Mrs.
Archer's father, John J. Rickly, was one
of the founders of Columbns, Nebraska.
It is an honored and well known name
Mr. Archer has been a resident of
Wyoming nine years and before going to
Carbon was engaged at ranching. He
has witnessed a great many important
changes in the state. His confidence in
the future of Wyoming is attested by
his investments in the Scranton house.
His enterprise in improving it and his
manner of. conducting the hostlery is a
great credit to the place. Visitors to
the city are met at the depot by a 'bus
and driven off a short distance to the
hotel with speed and comfort. The
table is always supplied with the choicest
the market affords and the service, is
of the very best character.

Cadiz, Ohio, Feb. 17, 1892.
To The Columbus (Neb.) Journal.
"Time motheth not, our beings 'tis
Returning to one's old home after an
absence of twenty years we find that the
young people of our day have silvered
hair, school boys and girls have become
heads of families, some have found homes
in other climes, some have gone beyond
us all. The poet might have said, "Our
beings 'tis that change," but the change
has not effaced individual lineaments,
the countenance beaming with pleased
recognition leaves no doubt as to the
identity of each as one after another of
our early friends takes our hand and the
old time voice is betrayed in the greet
ing. We find ourselves not so much
surprised at the changes as by the same
nesses, made precious by "fond recollec
tions" of "ye oiden time."
Such thoughts are awakened by the
presence among us of M. K. Turner, now
of Columbus, Neb. Happy as he seems
he cannot be gladder tlutn we to see him
again. . -. -. .
The following resolutions wore adopt
ed by Baker Post No. 9, G. A. R., of this
city at tneir meeting Saturday even
Resolved, That we, the members of
Baker Post No. 9, extend our heartfelt
thanks to the citizens of Columbus for
the generous manner in which they
opened their homes for the accommoda
tion and entertainment of tho delegates
of the W. R. C, and the hearty welcome
given the old soldiers who visited our
city; end be it further
Resolved, that we extend a vote of
thanks to our honorable mayor, Henry
Ragatz, for the able manner in which he
delivered the keys of the city and gave
tho delegates a cordial and hearty wel
come; and be it further
Resolved, That we extend our thanks
to all of our citizens who aided us in
securing the funds necessary in defray
ing the expenses of our encampment,
thereby making the gathering a credit
to our post and an honor to our oity,
and also that we extend our thanks to
the members of the S. of V. drum corps
for furnishing the music for tho occasion.
