Tho Thirteenth annual state con

meets at Hastings Nov. 17-20. An ex

doubt the meeting will bo very interest
ing to those who havo been engaged in
the special work of the organization in
the stato. "Save tho young men" is the
foundation idea of the association, and
there probably was never a more effec
tive organization for the purpose, or one
which has worked on such well-meaning
and wholesome lines.
Talking with a wholesale dealer Fri
day, ho told us that he was correspond
ing with parties at Plattsmouth, this
Btate. concerning coal. It is claimed
that it is similar to, and as good as that
of Fort Scott, Kansas. He doesn't doubt
that they have it, but ho has not yt
seen it. It would bo strange, indeed, if
we don't eventually findcoal in abund
ance, in Nebraska, seeing that overy
state around us can sell it to us. If
Norfolk has it, why shouldn't wo find it.
The Journal appoints Mr. Rhodehorst
a committee of one to investigate.
Sunday night, some ono started a
break in a rear window of Dr. Stillmnn's
drug store on Thirteenth street, but
probably was frightened away before any
damago was done. A section of glass
large enough for the entrance of a hand

some other sharp-pointed instrument,
the would-be burglar expecting, no
doubt, to reach in and unloose the lock.
It occurs to say that Columbus ought to
have an additional night police, as it is
impossible for one man to cover the
ground, be he ever so lively and active.
A. Heitkemper returned Friday from
a business trip to Norfolk. Ho talked
with tho owner of the farm where coal

half mile from Norfolk. They were dril

depth of 250 feet, found pieces of coal,
that prove to be as good, it not better,
than Rock Spring. An expert offered
8200 per acre for the farm, but it was
refused. A company of inspectors have
been sent for, and it is altogether proba
ble that it will bo a great success. Mr.
Heitkemper says he does not see any
reason why we should not have coal

Maynard Hurd givea a very interest
ing account of affairs in Washington. In
his region the soil is very rich, all made
earth, and tho chief products are hay,
hops and oats. Oats average 90 to 120
bushels to the acre, and sells now at S23
a ton; hay 3Jo to 4 tons to the acre, and
sells now at S12 a ton. Hops are very
profitable, and land there is worth as
much as $200 an acre. Ho knows of one
man who raised $9,000 worth of oats on
140 acres. No irrigation in west Wash

in great quantities to foreign markets.
Former residents of Columbus are doing

Tacoma. John Schram at Seattle does
an immense business. Byron Millet at

health than formerly; recently ran on the

was defeated. As for himself, Maynard
is verv modest, notwithstanding the very
successful campaign we know he has
just made as a candidate for member of
the etate legislature. His town is sit

a very peaceful, placid body of water,

ering slowly, after n long siege of sick
ness. The distribution of the federal offices
in republican states promises to bo a
very important sourco of interest to re
publicans, and probably a source of rev
enuo to those democrats who nmy be
able to securo appointments. We may
be allowed to make, in all kindness, a
few suggestions. There is our old friend.
Judge Doane of Omaha, who didn't suc
ceed in his campaign with Mercer for
congressional honors, and he resigned a
judgship to make the canvass, why not
give him an appointment as U. S. judge,
or at the least, U. S. district attorney?
James E. North, although elected as
senator from this district by a good-sized
vote, undoubtedly deserves moro from
Mb party than that ofiice will ever bring
him, and for tho work that he has timo
and again done for hia party in Nebras
ka (Tne Jouiwal speaks as a political
opponent looking disinterestedly upon
Mr. North as a party worker), no less an
office than the collector of internal rev
enues should be thought of. So far as
the post office hero is concerned, we have,
as yet, heard no namo 6poken out loud
except that of Mr. Davis of the Tele
gram. Cleveland's former administra
tion was rather good to newspaper men,
and it is possible that the rule may hold
good again. If party work is to havo
party reward, certainly onr neighbor will
be called upon to servo in this or some
other capacity, with a greater revenue
attached. Since writing the foregoing,
we hear Israel Glnck and Jonas Welch
mentioned as suitable men to handle the
mail for Columbus people. Settle it
among yourselves, gentlemen; we shall
have nothing further to say.
Last summer Judge Joseph R-Clark-son
of Omaha disappeared, and was sup
posed to be drowned. The lake was
dragged to find his body. The Omaha
bar was eloquent in eulogiums, and res
olutions of praise and condolence were
spread upon the records of the court.
Saturday morning he returned to Oma
ha, sought an interview with his uncle,
Postmaster Clarkson, who recognized
him. He was soon with his wife, who
had for months mourned him as dead.
His story is that in July, to save his eye
sight he submitted to an operation,
whicn was so painful that it mado him
frantic. For days the pain continued,
and then suddenly ceased, but doubtless
had affected his mind. He went to a
clothing store, bought a cheap suit of
clothes, started for Honey Creek lake.
After floating around for some timo he
returned to the shore, changed his
clothes, putting on the new ones and
leaving tho old ones in the boat. The
next few days were a blank. He says he
never will know how he got to Clinton,
Iowa. He thinks ho must have walked
all tho way, because he was so tired and
lame that he could hardly stand. He
went by the name of Brad. Doolittle.
He had but one idea to work, and save
all ho earned. He worked at handling
rock at 10 cents an hour, and at Clinton
in a lumber yard. Thursday last, while
hard at work, he suddenly remembered
that he was an Omaha man. and that he
had a wifo, who undoubtedly was mourn
ing him as dead. He stopped work at
once, and started for home. He is brown,
and his hands are scarred and blistered,
showing hard work.
This aged citizen, well and favorably
known by hundreds of Platte county
people, died at his home in Joliet town
ship, November 7th of heart failure. He
fell dead in his yard at 1 o'clock, without
a word to any one. Ho was in good
health and spirits at the time and was
never known to be sick or complain, in
The family wero all at home at the
time, except one son.
He had been a resident of the countv
twenty-one years, and leaves a widow,
five sons and two daughters, to mourn
the loss of a loving husband, and indul
gent father. His age was sixty-six vears.
His remains were laid to rest in the
Burrows cemetery, Nov. 10th, the pro
cession of a hundred vehicles carrying
numerous sympathizing friends, who
paid the last tribute of respect, in sorrow
for the stricken family.

There i3 no danger from whooping
cough when Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy is freely given. It liquefies tho
tough, tenacious mucus and aids in its
expectoration. It also lessens the se
venty 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 babios, as it
contains no injurious substance. 50 cent

The Aftermath or Election, that were not
Attainable at oar laat Ixsne.
Weaver and Cleveland fused in Ne
braska, but North and Jewell didn't fuse
even one vote according to the returns.
Meiklejohn'a majority of 42 in Platto
was a good send-off for a "grand yonn
Sibbornson's majority of 23-i in demo
cratic Platto Bhows a thing or two. If
he didn't get elected, ho run ''like n houso
Gondring, thought by some to bo tho
most popular democrat in the county,
had n majority of only 22 votes over Al
bert. The Polish forces aro supposed to
havo wielded tho secret ballot-axo in the
quiet booths, but Johnny had his own
guns in fair shape, and crawled out from
under the storm of battle carrying a lit
tle banner with 22 emblazoned thereon.
Thoro is about $900 difference between
22 and 00 in this case.
The republican nominations were
made too lato in the campaign, in Platto
Van Wyck had 53 majority in Platte
county, while Wolbach, democratic
nominee for Lieut. Governor, had 231.
If Sibbernscn had known that lie
would lack only 21 votes in the district,
as against Irwin, he might have acquired
11 from the Irwin column and added to
his own, by honest rustling.
Schelp was only 20 ahead of Bender.
Spoorry with his 71() was just even
with Crounse, who was 31 less than the
national republican ticket.
Republicans havo safely carried Ohio.
They get twent-two of tho twenty
three electors; ten of tho tweuty-ono
congressmen, and tho republican stato
It is now conceded that tho demo
crats will have a working majority in

Wo want overy mother to know that
croup can be prevented. True croup
never appears without a warning. Tho
first symptom is hoarsonese; then tho
ohild appears to havo taKen a cold or a
cold may havo accompanied tho hoarse
ness from tho start. After that a pe
culiar rough cough is developod, which
is followed by the croup. Tho timo to
act is when tho child first becomes
hoarso; a fow doses of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy will prevent tho attack.
Even after a rough cough has appeared
the disoaso may be prevented by using
this remedy as directed. It has never
been known to fail. 25 cent, 50 cent

cess, only being in bed a little over two
days, against ten day3 for tho first at
tack. The second attack I am satisfied
would have been equally as bad ao tho
first but for the use of this remedy, as I
had to go to bed in about six hours after
being 'struck' with it, whilo in the first
ense I was able to attend to business
about two days before getting 'down.' "
