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."

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 of failures. "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. Young men of eighteen are eligible to membership in the Columbus Repub lican Club. Now is a good time to join. Give your name to C. J. Garlow, secre tary. This is the party of progress, an'd has been since its organization in 1854, representative of the best that has been accomplished in the way of legislation in the United States. The enterprising, wide-awake, conscientious and intelli gent youth of each generation, (being the latest, revised edition of humanity) represent the actual progress of the race for the time, and should step for ward to their proper place in the line of public duty. A country without a good government is like a carpenter with broken tools; like a farmer with poor soil; like a workman lacking willingness and strength. You owe it to yourselves to do the best you can to further the public welfare, by helping the political party that most nearly expresses your sentiments. There is no danger from whooping cough when Chamberlain's Cough Rem edy is freely given. It liquefies the tough, tenacious mucuB and aids in its expectoration. It also lessens the se verity and frequency of the paroxysms of coughing, and insures a speedy re covery. There is not the least danger in giving it to children or babies, as it contains no injurious substance. 50 cent bottles for sale by C.

Elsewhere will be found the call of the committee for a republican city con vention, for the nomination of a city ticket, to be voted upon April 5th.! There are to elect: mayor, clerk, treas urer, police judge, engineer, councilman First ward, instead of Mr. Speice, whose term expires; same for Mr. Pollock of Second ward; same for Mr. Gondring in Third ward. Besides these elective offices, the following appointive offices will depend, for their filling, upon the result of the coming election: city attor ney; water commissioner; chief of police; policeman; street commissioner, and va rious and sundry other interests of more or less importance, among them the dis position of the printing for the city, the renewal of the contract for supplying water to the Union Pacific R'y Co., etc., etc. In addition to these is the selection of two members of the school board. Those whose terms expire are R. H. Henry and J. N. Taylor. Of course, as the city grows, these interests become of increased import ance, and must be carefully looked after by citizens, those especially who pay the taxes and thus foot all the bills, to whom the coming election is doubly in teresting. Every man entitled to a vote should see to it that, so far aB his influence goes, good men be nominated und elected. Letter List.

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 etables life. 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. James H. Hudson. Koll of Honor. Pupils who havo neither been tardy nor absent during the month of Feb. MISS MATTHEWS' BOOM.
