It is wonderful, when you come to
think of it, what can be done with the
human frame, to heal its hurts and cure
its infirmities. Of a man known to
many of our readers, the Madison
Chronicle says: "Frank Horst who has
been having so severe a time with a
gathering in his head, was taken to
Omaha last Friday by Dr. Long who
decided that an operation was necessary
before recovery could be effected, jure.
Omaha, Mrs. John Horst and Fred also
went as far as Columbus. Frank was
taken to the Methodist hospital where
Dr. Giffort assisted by Dr. Long, per
formed the operation. A hole was
drilled through the skull back of the
ear and the pus allowed to escape. The
patient withstood the operation in good
shape, and he will undoubtedly recover,
which is gratifying to his many Madison
friends. Saturday the patient became
delirous and was thought to beworso,
and his brother John went down to
Omaha, but returned Tuesday, saying
that Frank was considerably better."
James Sandisland and J. A. Smith
of Boone county were in the city Thurs
day morning, on their way home from
the State Alliance meeting at Grand
Island. J. II. Powers was elected presi
dent; W. A. Poynter, vice president; J.
M. Thompson, secretary and treasurer,
and there were in attendance about one
hundred and eighty-three "delegates.
Among the important measures discuss
ed was that of insurance there being
now somo thirty-one fire and lightning
mutual companies in the stato of Nebras
ka, formed by her own citizens, about
one-fifth the number Iowa has. It is
likely that a mutual hail insurance will
be organized for tho entire state. One
other matter that came up for reference
to tho local alliances was the question of
tho government manufacturing all intox
icating liquors, selling them at actual
cost, and thus taking out of 'the business
all there is of money in it. The new
name for tho organization is "Farmers'
Alliance and Industrial Union."
Manual training must be made a
spocialty in schools. Nothing better
than the saying of William Penn can be
set down, for the communities of these
United States, as it was for his own
little province of the long-ago: "All
children within this provinco of the ago
of 12 years, will be taught some useful
trade or skill, to the end that none may
be idle, but the poor may work to live,
and the rich if they bocome poor, may
not want." The apprentice system has
gone out of vogue, apparently to stay
out, and something must take its place.
Children, choose the occupation you
wish to follow, and put yourselves under
the best teachers available to you. And
this in a few years must be the working
motto of every good school board in
this country. Wherever manual train
ing has been made a part of everyday
school work it has been a decided suc
cess in every way.
John Tannahill was in town Thurs
day from Genoa. He had been down
from Niobrara only a few days, where he
had been soliciting pupils for the gov
ernment Indian school at Genoa, and
starts the first of this week, to the Omaha
and Winnebago agencies, for the same
purpose. While at Niobrara he noticed
tho artesian well in operation at that
point running a grist mill. It is 660 feet
deep, going down most of the way
through soft, so-called chalk rock; cost
$3,500; has been in operation about a
year; has an eight-inch pipe with an
inch and a half nozzle; runs a wheel
four feet in diameter, sixty-horso power,
and, it is claimed, can run a hundred
horse power, and do it as steadily as a
clock, and that without a balance wheel.
One of tho most frightful accidents
that ever happened in Boone county
occurred last Friday night, at Mr. Jar
vis's house about two miles north of
Albion. A lamp had been left burning
on a stand when the children tipped it
over and in falling it was broken and the
oil ignited. Mrs. Jarvis attempted to
extinguish the fire by smothering it with
a pillow, arid while holding the pillow on
the fire the flames were communicated
to her clothing and in a short time she
was enveloped in flames. Before she
could be relieved she was so severely
burned that it was impossible to save
her life and 6he died in great agony
about one o'clock that night. She leaves
a husband and several small children.
In the last number of the Monroe
Looking Glass we find the following
"reference to an allusion:" "We being a
prohibitionist, and necessarily an out
sider, have lots of fun seeing the other
fellows work their little games more
fun than standing outside a circus on a
hot day. Now see them all jump on the
Monroe Crounse club, because all Co
lumbus can't wear the shoes of D. F. at
one time. Hurrah for Ben, anyway."
All which is like talking in riddles.
What has Henry Gerrard of tho Crounse
club been doing, getting an appoint
ment, and who is Ben, anyhow? Allen,
why don't yon talk with your usual
plainness, and not go about trying to
stir up curiosity?
Tho Christmas entertainments at the
several churches attracted unusually
large crowds. All parents and friends of
the little ones were anxious to see how
their children "got along." All but the
Episcopal Sunday schools (who observ
ed Monday eyening) had their trees on
Saturday evening. Tho trees were load
ed with candies, toys etc., which were
given to the little ones after the program
of speaking and singing were finished.
The Presbyterians had a little extra in
the way of a cantata. We would like to
give a full account of this, as our repor
ter promised we should have it. The
Journal- reporter was a noblo little fel
low seven years of age, Master Elliott,
and The Journal is proud of its rep
resentative. There are a great many forms gotten
up by newspaper men to attract atten
tion, some of them real cute, but of all
such, tho following specimen is about as
good as we have seen: "All persons
knowing themselves to be indebted to
this office are requested to call and set
tle. All those indebted to this office and
not knowing it aro requested to call and

James Gadsden tells ns that the last
Canadian party from this county took
land as follows: O. Nelson 640 acres,
Joseph Bartunk 480 acres, C. L. V. Hill
480 acres, John Mcintosh 160 acres, John
H. Lawrence 320 acres, F. Dicky for him

Wilcox 160 acres, R. D. McKee 640 acres,
W. P. Cornwell 160 acres, George McKee
160 acres, and he took 440 acres, addi
tional himself. Most of these men will
move up in tho spring and this county
will lose some more of its best people,

No wonder one of the babies died Thurs
day night. The company that moved
from here to Genoa had eight children,
of 13 to 16 years of age, but when Super
intendent Backus desired to get them as
pupils for the Indian school, they had
the same argument as "white folks"
they had to have them to do work.

Curren and Ida S. Curren wore re-married

second time Mr. and Mrs. Curren have
taken this important step. After thoy
went to Oklahoma things didn't go as
smoothly as they might, and Mrs. C.
came back to Osceola soveral weeks ago
and Joe immediately went before a
county court and got a divorce and the
custody of the children awarded to him
and came up about a week ago to take
them back, but after talking matters over
they decided to try it again. We can
testify to the fact that Joe is one of the
best-hearted men in the world The
Record says that Martin Zuroski (whoso
death was mentioned in last week's
Journal), came home drunk and was
looking for something to annihilate.
Nothing better appearing he began on
the stove in which was a roaring fire.
He kicked it over and began kicking the
pieces around and soon had the house
on fire. His wife succeeded in getting
the feather bed out and left Martin to
fight it out with the stove. He was too
drunk to get out and his wife could do
nothing with him, and in a very short
time the house had gone up in smoke
and Martin with it. The house was a
small thatch roofed "shack." Its owner
spent too much time and money on his
carousals to get a better one. Nothing
was saved but the feather bed The
town board have passed an ordinance
prohibiting public meetings and provid
ing other means of precaution to prevent
the spread of scarlet fever and diphtheria.

And as the people filed out of tho
opera house last night many; more sim
ilar remarks could be heard.
The rendition of "Everybody's Friend"
by the Thalia Dramatic Co. was certainly
a success and much praiso is due all tho
members of the club.
Mr. Charles W. Pearsall as Major Wel
lington De Boots, was "present, my
dear," played his part perfectly. Will.
Kemp had a difficult part and handled
it exceedingly well. Ralph Piatt as
Featherly, "everybody's friend," had a
fino make-up and performed his part
with ease. Emmor McMeans played
tho part of "Trap," a servant, and sang
several catchy songs, which were hearti
ly encored. Tho part of Mrs. Featherly,
the neglected wife, was portrayed by
Miss Evyline Murphy, who had occa
sion to sing "Only a Woman's Heart."
It was a pretty song and Miss Murphy
did it justice.
Mrs. Hattie B. Augustine performed
the role of Mrs. De Boots, an adept
angler for husbands and did it well.
Miss Margaret Howard and Miss Grecsu
Bell took the parts of Mrs. Swansdown,
a charming widow, and Fannie, a paid
very acceptably. . Vv

piece by Michaels, was executed in a
very creditable manner and-was well re

Tho proceeds of tho comedy are to be
devoted to a charitable purpose, and no
doubt the opera house will bo crowded.
Besides, our own Charles Pearsall is one
of the actors, and will be remembered
by many of our readers as among the

May tho township of Butler prosper
under this new administration.
After an absence of over a year Miss
Emma Gerber returned home Christmas

neighborhood. The fear was entertained
that Emma was lost. S.
"Everybody's Friend" as rendered by
the Thalia Dramatic Club last Friday
night was cno of tho cleanest pieces of
work that wo have ever seen upon tho
boards of the Bartenbach. Fow profes
sionals who come this way do better
than did our young amateurs upon this
occasion, and when we say this we mean
it. for it is simply justice to those to
whom it is legitimately due. Cranky
and dyspeptic indeed would bo tho critic
who would indulge in a single criticism
upon the portrayal of any part as ren
dered upon that occasion. It was all
good and merited universal praise. The
receipts were satisfactory financially, and
many a little heart will be made light
and happy as the result of the efforts of
tho members of the Thalia club, each one
of whom will find a great big credit mark
in his or her behalf when it comes to tho
final reckoning. Grand Island Inde
