Nicholas Blaser, who was in town
Thursday, called at Journal headquar
ters on business. We learn from him,
that he has finished planting 180 acres
to corn. His son, Nicholas Blaser, jr.,
who is living at Dalles, Oregon, writes
him that his land there will in a short
time be worth twice as much as he gave
for it. There is a good deal of rain there
just now, but not too much. All grow
ing crops look good. Another of Mr.
Blaser's sons, Frank, is at Stockton,
Calif., and thinks it a great country.

Children Cry for
THE NATION'S DEAD HEROES.
The Comaeaontiea ef Their Noble Servi
ces to the Coutry Fitly Observed.
Uppermost in the minds of the old
soldiers who constitute the Grand Army
of the Republic, foremost in the teach
ings of that great society, are not the
dogmas of selfishness, but the princi
ples of friendship, charity and loyalty.
Fitting companions in their labor of
love and loyalty are the Sons of Veter
ans and the Woman's Relief Corps, all
actuated by the spirit of goodwill and
loyalty. Exceedingly appropriate is it
that not only the children of the sol
diers, but all children, be taught the
value of our national institutions and
instructed in the history of the strug
gles through which the nation, under
Providence, has been brought until now.
The beauty and the benefits of loyalty
can never be adequately portrayed or
appreciated except in full contrast with
the spirit of treason and the destruction
of all we hold sacred of free institutions.
The right is the only proper standard
for the American people. That which
ought to be done, is that which we
ought to do, with reasoning delibera
tion, with calm determination and ef
fectually. Rev. T. W. Cole preached the Memo
rial sermon Sunday at the morning hour,
to Baker Post, Woman's Relief Corps
and Union Camp S. of V. and a large
congregation who attentively listened to
a very able address.
Memorial Day exercises were begun
promptly as announced by the assemb
ling of the societies at their hall; and
taking up the line of march, the firemen
were met at Frankfort square and all
proceeded to the opera house. Through
a mishap, the commander of the Post
was not informed, until after the pro
cession had been seated in the opera
house, that pupils of the second ward
schools were awaiting them at the build
ing, in charge of Miss Gallagher, ready
to join the procession.
The large hall and stage were deco
rated with the national colors, portraits
of the prominent generals of the war
and flowers in abundance, two stands
of arms on the stage being tho most
realistic emblems of the great contest.
Members of Baker Post and visiting
comrades occupied the stage, among the
latter being M. Rogers, Jacob Jnd 1 and
P. H. Kelley of the Platte Center post;
James Creamer of the Madison post; D.
C. Owen of Gardner; Frank Fleming of
David City, and W. F. Marshall of Mo
tor post, Kansas.
All available space in the house was
occupied, and many remained outside.
Music by the Cornet Band opened the
exercises, and Commander McCoy called
for the reading of the orders by Adju
tant Miner. These set forth in fitting
language tho reasons for Memorial Day
After music by the baud, Post Chap
lain McAllister was called upon to in

school, in which, in plain, strong lan
guage, was very briefly told the history
of tho day and what it means to the
A solo and chorus, "We're Growing
Old Together, Boys," was then rendered

W. K. Lay, Stephen Buzza and M. K.
Judge W. N. Hensley, tho orator of
the day, then delivered one of the best
addresses of the kind ever heard in the
city, full of patriotic feeling; a glowing
tribute to the heroic dead, and a plea
for fraternity among the living, telling
the Sons of Veterans that if they could
succeed in perfecting the union as their
fathers had preserved it, they would be
doing a work equally as great as theirs.
The Cornet Band then rendered a fine

Judge H. J. Hudson then on the part
of the Firemen, made a brief but poin
ted address in commemoration of
the dead firemen of Columbus, and the
heroic deeds of the brave boys who are
often called upon to save property and
lives at the peril of their own lives.
The quartette then gave "Gently
Fall, Oh Dews of Heaven," Mr. Buzza
taking the leading part.
This closed the exercises at the opera
house, and the line of march was taken
up for the cemetery.
At the grave of Captain John Ham
mond, the brief but beautiful ritual of
theG. A. R. was pronounced and de
tails of veterans made to decorate
graves of the following soldiers:
J. W. Early,
R D. Sheehan,
Wm. H. Thomas,
R. B. Mclntire,
L J. Slattery.
P. J. Law rence.
The young-school children decorated
the graves of those of their former com
panions who have died during the year,
the firemen doing likewise for those of
their dead brothers whose bodies rest in
the Columbus cemetery.

authorizes us to tender the sincerest

We want every mother to know that
croup can be prevented. True croup
never appears without a warning. The
first symptom is hoarseness; then the
child appears to have taKen a cold or a
cold may have accompanied the hoarse
ness from the start. After that a pe
culiar rough cough is developed, which
is followed by the croup. The time to
act is when the child first becomes
hoarse; a few doses of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy will prevent the attack.
Even after a rough cough has appeared
the disease may be prevented by using
this remedy as directed. It has never
been known to fail. 25 cent, 50 cent

TIIE GRADUATING CLASS.
Three ia Naaiber, They Receive the Usasi
The Eighth Annual Commencement
of the Columbus High School was held
at opera house Saturday evening.
Intellectual people are always glad to
see the rising generation attain some
decided form of education, a jewel that
can not be purchased, the greatest gift
that can be given, and the surest safe
guard of a nation's welfare.
We say we are all glad to see our
friends have accomplished a work which
is not the easiest and which requires
many anxious hours and days of study.
It is to show the high estimate they
place upon an education, that somany
always attend the commencement exer
cises, but no larger ever gathered at the
opera house than was there Saturday
evening at 8 o'clock.
The stage was a beautiful bower of
floral decorations, notwithstanding the
scarcity of flowers this season. These
were arranged by the Juniors.
At a little after 8:30 the members of
the school board, Prof. Lawrenco Foss
ler of the State University, Prof. Scott
and Mrs. A. C. Ballou, Rev. T. W. Cole
and the three graduates came out on tho
stage and arranged themselves in a
After an earnest invocation by Rev. T.
W. Cole, the girls of the Junior class
sang Vivo L'Amour.
The salutatory by Joseph J. Dodds
was the next ou the program. The
young man is exceptionally studious and
gave evidence of it in his theme, "The
Rise and Fall of Civilization." His am
bition is evidenced by the fact that,
although his parents lived five miles
from the city, he has traversed tho dis
tance every day for four years in order
to attend the Columbus high school.
The salient features of the composition
we will endeavor to give in brief. He
said: "The life of man is pre-eminently
tho most attractive study with which
the human mind can concern itself. By
those who have given no thought to the
subject, the present is regarded as the
golden age, the greatest advance yet
made in a persistent and constant ascent
towards the summit of ambitious at
tainmentfrom primeval savagery, wii
its discomforts, disadvantages and dis
couragements man has grown by slow,
intermittent advances to high estate,
and established himself as lord of crea
tion, the master of his surroundings.
Africa was the scene where many of the
great exploits were performed by Baby
lonians and others. And yet in this
land so fertile, that in spite of centuries
of neglect and improvidence, its resour
ces are unexhausted, a land, that was
for untold centuries not merely the
granary of the world but the seat of the
highest intellectual achievement, we
now find the arrogant but worthless
Turks, and various savage tribes many
of them half starving in tho midst of
abundance. Fiually, if wo consider the
various human institutions,it would seem
that tho civilization of tho future must
absorb whatever has been valid in tho
past, and that if it is to be permanent it
must ignore no element of man's nature
physical, intellectual, moral or relig
An essay "Nature, Science and Art,"
by Charles A. Welch, a Platte county
boy born and bred, son of Jonns Welch,
was well received. Ho said "An all wise
Providence placed mankind in this
world to do good. This great mission
is not at all confined to the few, but
to the whole human family. No ono, be
he ever so low or ever so high, but has
an important part to perform in the
great panorama of this world. The Uni
ted States is now foremost in rank
among tho learned nations of the world,
and still in breadth and thoroughness is
but narrow and superficial as compared
with the schools that are to be enjoyed
by future generations. The large num
ber of books and papers published and
circulated is sufficient proof that ours is
a reading and thinking people. The de
sire for knowledge is increasing, and
step by step scientific knowledge is
gaining a firmer foothold. What won
ders may we not expect in the future!
May not generations yet unborn aston
ish the world with discoveries, that what
now 6eem divine, become simple? It is
useless to weep over the follies of the
past. Our duties are for tho present;
the world and this time and our lives
are moving on and on to the end. Why
stand we idle? Others are performing
well their parts in the great drama of
life; all must move shoulder to shoul
der; tho great wheels of progress must
not be clogged by us."
The Juniors then sang Ave Maria, and
did their instructor in music, Mrs. Page,
great credit, as the piece is very difficult.
Frances I. Turner, the only girl in the
class, then delivered the valedictory.
The theme of her essay was "Free
Schools of the United States." In sub
stance it was this: "A thoroughly in
formed historian could not in a week
give us more than a mere outline of the
progress made in this country since the
school days of our grandparents. Our
own beloved portion of the country has,
(in that, as in other matters) made the
greatest strides. Only a few years ago
the rude house made of sod sheltered
the youth from the blizzards of winter.
In the eastern states the log huts long
since gave way to fine brick and stone
buildings; the translucent greased paper
which the scholars carried from home
to make windows of at school, was long
6ince displaced by the transparent glass.
The pounding on the window-sash by
the fist of tho 'master' no longer 'calls
school.' The bundle of beech rods laid
away in the attic to dry and toughen for
use, is not now considered as an indis
pensable article of school furniture.
The places of the autocratic, domineer
ing, cranky old 'masters' are now occu
pied mainly by gentle men and gentle
women, who, following in the footsteps
of Froebel, believe that education means
the 'harmonious development of all the
bodily and mental powers' and not
merely (as one has fitly expressed it) tho
use of the mind as a 'cold-storage for
facts.' Book learning is not now re
garded as all there is of education.
Theory and practice must go together.
The exact sciences are specially adapted
to mental training, because their dem

By the study of scientific truths, and by
the ever-increasing demand that knowl

tical benefit, men, women, and even
children now vie with each other in in

The public schools are the kindergarten

worst foe to public welfare." Thanks
were given to the school board and the
teachers for their efforts in their behalf
and a farewell given the class.
Prof. Fossler of the State University
then made a good address to the class,
which contained some excellent advice,
and which any and all could follow.

Two little misses, Jessie Hoffman and
Florence Kramer did duty as flower
girls, delivering the floral gifts to the
Ed. Journal: It seems to me that
there are several things that ought to be
looked after by those having authority
in such matters.
First. I believe that the city should
establish a grade for the streets have
the engineer make a profile, so that
when grading is done it can bo done
systematically and on scientific princi
ples. Anything else is like guess work.
If we can best drain eastward, let us
know it; if southward, let us know that,
and not keep on guessing.
Second. I don't know enough to
know whether the city council have all
the say of the streets and alleys to the
extent of taking the dirt away from the
front of one man's house, near which it
might well be used, and hauling it away
off to fill up a hole in front of somebody
else's place. I suppose that the city
officials have the right to do this, or they
wouldn't do it.
Third. There is a low place on North
street, one block south of where Mr.
Hohl lives (I don't know who owns the
lot) but it is, during a good part of the
year, a nuisance, because of the water
that stands in it. Could the city com
pel the owner to fill it up, or could the
owner compel the city to provide a
means of drainage? Come to think of
it, I guess that both things would le
advisable, done as peace offerings, and
certainly this would be beneficial to the
healthfulness of the neighborhood.
Fourth, and last, (for the present).
wouldn't it be advisable for tho owners
of lots in our cemetery to take some
concerted action in regard to securing
there the use of water from the city, and
also a thorough renovating and cleaning
up of the streets and alleys, in the city
of our dead? As one, I think that
something ought to be done. If there
is not now revenue from the sale of lots
to look after these things (and I am told
that all moneys received are used for
improvements), why not provide a fund
in somo way.'
