IL Andrews, engineer, had a very
narrow -escape from death Monday.
Near Humphrey, a pin gave way near
the rear wheel on the right, letting thai
driving-rod loose, which in its whirling
knocked the men out of the cab, and
fortunately, set the air braka. Andrews
says if the accident had occurred on a
down grade, there would doubtless have
been a big wreck.
According to the Omaha Bee's report
Myra Hempleman, testified against her
father John Hempleman, formerly of this
place, and her step-mother to this effect:
"That for the most trivial accidents she
had been knocked down, kicked and
battered with fists and sticks, dragged
about the room by the hair and treated
in a way that would do credit to the
most brutal slave drivers."

would have been equally as bad as the
first but for the use of this remedy, as I
had to go to bed in about six hours after
being 'struck' with it, while in the first

about two days before getting 'down.'"

Last Friday the Archer (Merrick
county) band and the Columbus cornet
band went to Genoa to take part with
the Genoa Indian band in a "feast of
music," in fact a re-union of three of the
first bands that formed the State Union.
Open-air concerts were given Jn the
village and at the Indian school Friday
afternoon and Saturday morning. The
speech-making was done by Sup't
Backus, response by C. W. Adams of the
Archer band; also an eloquent tribute
by E. V.Clark, esq. The concert and
dance in the evening at the hall are de
scribed as a grand success in every par
ticular, and the members of the Colum
bus band speak in the highest terms of
praise of the hospitality, of Genoa citi
zens and band. We hear commenda
tions of all the numbers on the program
for the evening, and especially of the
flute solo by A. Sauer; the cornet solo
by C. E. Barnett; the baritone solo by
Roy Farnham; the Harvard Waltz by
the Indian band, the music being im
posed by their leader, W. F. Be. .tett;
and the song and dance by the Colum
bus band, the clogs being represented
on the snare drum by F. C. Turner, and
the shuffling of the dance by A. Sauer,
with sand blocks. Mrs. Cook of Fuller
ton, an accomplished musician, added
greatly to the enjoyment of the audience,
as accompanyist on the piano to the
vocal numbers and flute solo. The open
air concert Saturday morning at the
Government school was greatly enjoyed
by the nearly half a thousand Indians
in attendance, who appreciated the con
sideration shown their superintendent
themselves, and the institution. If
Genoa or her band wish anything in the
future, just call for it
Mr. A. N. Briggs a former citizen of
Columbus, was in the city Friday. He
is now a resjdentof Deer Lodge co., Mon
tana. His locality is 7,000 feet above the
sea level, and the thermometer some
times for a few days reaches 35 to G4 de
grees below zero. In summer the nights
are always cool and sleep invigorating.
Horses pick their own living dnnng the
winter, flourishing finely on bunch grass,
when snow is not more than two feet
deep. It is always light and fluffy, and
not fit for sleighing. Mr. Briggs's resi
dence is within a mile and a half of
Georgetown, a considerable mining
camp. Mining and ranching are the
main industries of Montana. Mr. B.
tells of some of the fortunate "finds" in
mining, notwithstanding which he has
never had the gold fever: H. S. Clark,
who fifteen years ago invested his last
$75 in a sack of flour, is now worth $16,-
000,000 above ground, and has twelve
hundred men working for him under
ground; Marcus Daly, thirteen years ago,
couldn't raise 50 cts. to pay for a meal's
victuals and now is worth $13,000,000.
A man who worked for Bert Briggs at
$3 a day on the ranche, got restless and
-said that was too slow a way for getting
rich. When told that he might do a deal
worse prospecting, he replied: "bigger
fools than I am have got rich that way."
"He bought him an outfit, went prospect
ing and within three weeks ho sold his
find for $75,000 'but, as Mr. Briggs says,
where one is successful, there are dozens
"Do you believe in ghosts?," is now
one of the local queries, which seems to
have a shadow of story sufficiently
strong to give the credulous food for
conjecture. The habitat of the rumored
mysterious being is at the Y of the
Union Pacific yards. Not many nights
since, a prominent jeweler and a prom
inent druggist of the city accompanied
by a large multitude of interested
spectators, many of them railroad men,
approached the scene of the ghostly
haunts, and sure enough there was the
unearthly creature, having somewhat
the form of a sheep, mayhap one of
those that formerly
"Grazed upon the Grampian Hills."
The jeweler presented a bold front, and
spoke unto the vision thus: "If yon are
a man, let it be known now, because I
have a revolver and propose to shoot"
The stillness was most profound and
entirely unbroken by a word of audible
speech from this world or "the other
one." The jeweler snapped his pistol
and snapped again and again, without
effect, and concluded that the ghost or
some other power had bewitched his
shooting iron. The vision then as
sumed the form of a man and after con
tinuing thus for about two minutes in
defiance of all the guns of the crowd, it
suddenly vanished as speedily as it had
appeared. Thus ends the first chapter.

First ward, instead of Mr. Speice, whose

Second ward; same for Mr. Gondring in

offices, the following appointive offices
will depend, for their filling, upon the
result of the coming election: city attor

policeman; street commissioner, and va

La Vina, Feb. 26, 1892.
Editob Joubnazi: Since I last wroto
to you, I have seen iinany changes, and
have laid up lots of experience, and
could discourse philosophy in big
chunks. I have paid liberally for what
I know about colonies, cheap homes, and
the poor man's paradise. California is
a great country for fruits and flowers, it
has its thorns and' briars, it has Ub
health spots and its sickly places.
Wherever irrigation can be secured,
plenty crowns the laborer's toil, but, O
my! No matter how good the soil, 'tis
but a parched and barren waste without
the fructifying rains of heaven, or bub
bling stream from mountain heights.
In my last letter wo were hopeful that
the rumors about fraud on the part of
the men who organized this colony, and
the questionable title to our purchases
would prove unfounded, but alas, for
trusting humanity! The fraud did ma
terialize to our detriment financially,
and our title to our ten acres has gone
"where the woodbine twineth." The
Pacific company of San Francisco, are
trying to unravel the tangled thread,
twisted into galling knots, by Brown and
Baird, how far they shall succeed time
will tell. I believe the Pacific Co. are
men of character and will do what they
can to establish clear titles for us, but
possibly at the forfeit of what we have
already advanced; wifo and I were fortu
nate to secure employment at the camp
of the new deal. With economy, and our
health, we may save fifty dollars a
month. We have just finished planting
300 acres with grapevine cuttings. It
requires 2,000 to each five acres, making
120,000 cuttings planted. I put them
all in with a gang of ten Chinamen. The
rainy season is about closing, and every
thing looks beautiful. The hills are clad
in emerald hue, and the flowers are fill
ing the air with odors and perfume that
intoxicate the senses, and make us for
get the drear' wastes that lie along the
dreary alkali deserts, and volcanic for
mations, so utterly destitute of all veg
La grippe has been cavorting around
among our people, after the Nebraska
fashion, as I gather from The Sovkskv,
and while it touched us lightly, it leaves
reminders of its visit in aching- bones
and stiffened limbs. Apart from this,
our health has been very good and I
have no desire to give the shake to
California's glorious climate.
If I had invested my money in lots at
Madern', it would 'have been a good
stroke instead of snapping at tho decoy
as successfully displayed by the John
Brown colony scheme.
But, Mr. Turner, the old saying, "you
must kick around in the dust whero you
dropped your nickle, if you expect to
find it," holds good right here, and when
found, you are apt to put it where it
will do the most good.
This I shall try to do.
