We hear considerable complaint
from the neighborhood of Norfolk in
regard to the beet industry. Farmers
are apparently not at all well satisfied
with the conditions under which they
are compelled to furnish beets nor the
price obtained. After the large bonus
given by Norfolk people to secure the
sugar plant and the immense outlay for
machinery by the company, every en
deavor should be made to encourage the
production of the raw material at living
Soon after commencing work at the
Platte river bridge yesterday morning,
while engaged in unloading a large tim
ber from a wagon, the skid upon which
it was being removed broke, the whole
weight falling upon O. W. Clark, of
Central City, breaking both bones of his
left leg below the knee and otherwise
injuring him to a considerable extent
He was brought to this city and Drs.
Martyn 3c Evans set the leg and dressed
the wounds of the unfortunate
man and he was made as comforta
ble as possible and sent to his home on
the afternoon train. Mr. Clark is a
married man, and this accident will
prevent bis working for some time. .
In the reorganisation of the south
western eyatem of the Gould roads, Mr.
S. H. H. Clark, president, has appointed
W. B. Doddridge general manager of
that important chain of roads. Mr.
Doddridge will be remembered by our
older citizens as station agent for the
Union Pacific railroad at Columbus
along in the 70's, and it is here he gained
his first experience in railroading, so
that we can honestly claim the credit of
furnishing the country with this great
railroad manipulator, as his position is
in importance second only to that of Mr.
Clark himself. From here, Mr. Dodd
ridge drifted west says the Bee, and so
capable did he show himself that Mr.
Clark made him acting superintendent
of the western division of the Union
Pacific, extending from Green River to
Ogden. Then he became general super
intendent of the Idaho division, which
comprised the Oregon Short Lino. But
he grew tired of railroading and went to
Montana to become the superintendent
of the Anaconda mines. His first love,
however, proved too strong for him and
he went back to railroading, fiually at
taining that thorough knowledge and
executive -ability which placed him in
the high position above mentioned.
Mr. W. B. Backus, the energetic and
wide-awake superintendent of the In
dustrial School at Genoa for the educa
tion of Indian children, made The
Journal office a pleasant and most wel
come visit Thursday afternoon. For
four years he has faithfully filled the
responsible trust imposed upon him.
In that time he has personally super
vised the erection of five handsome and
useful buildings at a total cost of
$3560, being a yearly .average of $8,840,
the greater portion of which has been
realized from the several industries of
the school during Mr. B.'s four years'
regency. In that time the school has
grown in numbers from 130 to 400 indust
rious Indian boys and girls,many of whom
exhibit a surprising degree of knowledge
acquired in a very short time. Mr.
Backus informs us that the manufac
ture of brooms is one of the most im
portant industries of the school, having
now ready for market something like
$4,000 worth. The superintendent has
successfully conducted this philanthro
pic institution at the unprecedented low
cost to the government of $8,640 in the
entire four years. Space forbids a more
extended notice of this school, much to
our regret
Just a little late for an announce
ment in last week's paper there occurred
at the residence of Mrs. T. C. Bauer, near
the city limits, Tuesday noon an unos
tentatious and homelike wedding which
was no great surprise to Columbus so
ciety, as the happy mating of two souls
so well ana favorably known was whis
pered from one to another of the con
tracting parties' many friends in pleas
ing words. It was the marriage of Dr.
T. R. Clark, one of our leading physi
sians, and Miss Louise Bauer, than whom
no more estimable lady graces Columbus
society. Rev. H. Miessler performed the
ceremony in his happiest manner. And
now the good Dr. will find a "light in
the window" awaiting him on his return
from professional visits on dark and
stormy nights. The Journal joins their
many friends in wishing them all the
happiness that can possibly be derived
from married life. After several days
visiting with friends at Lincoln Dr. and
Mrs. Clark settled down to everyday life
just, as though nothing unusual had
"Cleanliness is next to godliness."
This thought was prompted by a recent
visit to the Thurston house barber shop.
Men who care for appearance and com
fort always seek the most artistic ma
nipulators of the razor and comb, and
the neatest and cleanest barber shop to
be found. These essential requirements
can always be found at the Thurston
shop. They are always "at home" in
their best bib and tucker. Mr. Frank
Rybnrn, than whom no more artistic
barber ever traveled, has now in his
employ that "king of the razor," Ed.
Kimbrough, whose lips are sealed to all
things but business. In connection with
this parlor barber shop you will find ele
gantly furnished bath rooms. 1
Railroads are great advertisers.
Both the Union Pacific and the B. & M.
are now very extensively engaged in ad
vertising prospective cities of large di
mensions. The Union Pacific is boom
ing Gothenburg and her canal and the
B. & M. is building upon paper a large
city out of Sheridan, away up in Wyo
ming. We read in the latter's adver
tisements that "Sheridan is, without
doubt, the coming city of the new north
west" If such stringent economists as
great railroad corporations can see
money in advertising, why do merchants
and business men keep their light hid
den under a bushel measure?
M. K. Turner received a telegram
from Council Bluffs, Iowa, Monday an
nouncing the sad intelligence of the
death of Mr. G. L. Jacobs, an old and
much esteemed friend, and left early
Tuesday morning to attend the funeral.
Mr. Jacobs was a former resident of
eastern Ohio, was for many years a
teacher, and was always prominently
connected with educational matters.
He had resided in Council Bluffs for a
number of years. Mr. Jacobs had been
a great sufferer from rhumatism, which
finally removed him to that realm above
where pain and sorrow are unknown.
Mrs. R. A. Folsom, of Lincoln, tar
ried a few days in Columbus last week
on her fifth annual tour through the state
in the interest of the "Tabitha" orphan
home, and met with deserved success.
This institution receives needy orphans
from all parts of the state and cares for
them, giving them an education and
training for some useful occupation un
til they become self-supporting, but does
not allow them to be adopted, thus pre
venting the separation of children of the
same family, and is in every way a most
worthy object of charity.
D. H. Harrington of Duncan, who
for the past eight years has been mana
ger of the Nebraska interests of the
Warren Live Stock company, left on
last Friday for Cheyenne, Wyoming,
where he will assume a still more re
sponsible position with that extensive
live stock company. Mr. Harrington
did not delegate any one to supply him
with Platte county news during his ab
sence, but took the more sure and sen
sible plan and subscribed for Thk
Joukxax, which wishes him success in
lall his undertakings.

W. F. Beckett of Genoa, president
of the Nebraska State Band Union,
made this office a pleasant call Thurs
day last on his return home from a busi
ness meeting at Lincoln of the officers
of the above named association. From
him we learn the bands throughout the
state are in a flourishing condition and
working in perfect harmony. Among
the business transacted at Lincoln was
the acceptance of a very liberal proposi
tion from the state fair management to
hold their next band encampment on
their grounds during fair week, and it is
expected that from thiity to forty bands
will be in attendance. Mr. Beckett,
who. was the prime mover in the organi
zation of our present estimable band
union, is now arranging music and mak
ing other preparations to have the entire
union practice and become proficient in
a series of the latest selections, so that
at any time, upon the shortest notice,
the whole or a portion, as the case may
require, the combination will bo pre
pared to fill all engagements without
delay for preparation. This is an origi
nal idea and one which seems to us very
The county board of supervisors
meets June 13th, 14th and 15th, as a
board of equalization. The Joubnal
suggests that it is a good thing, a very
good thing, if you wish to get your tax
levy upon the proper basis, to attend the
session of your township board of su
pervisors, and see that the valuation
placed upon your property is not put at
a higher figure, proportionately, than
that of your neighbors, and also that all
the property holders in your township
be justly rated, so that the taxes, levied
as a certain rate per cent on the fixed
valuation, will bear equally all around.
If the township board do not do you
justice, then you can come to the county
board of equalization and look after it.
This is your business just as much as it
is your business to pay just what you
ought for your groceries, machinery,
dry-goods, etc., and it is just as import
ant for you to look after it Don't for

two days, sou of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. W.
Hulst, former residents of this place,
now of Rapid City, Dakota, died Wed
nesday and the remains were brongbt
here Friday for burial. The services
were held Saturday afternoon from the
Episcopal church, Rev. Jaudou preach
ing a very consoling sermon. The in
terior of the church was tastefully
arranged with a profusion of flowers
furnished by sympathizing friends of
the family. The remains were laid to
rest in the Columbus cemetery. All
members of the family were present ex
cept Garrett who is attending college in
the east and unable to come. Mrs. Dr.
Siggins, Mr. and Mrs. Mercer, Mr. and
Mrs. P. Ford and H. I. Latham, all of
Omaha, were in attendance to pay their
last sad rites to ono who made sunshine
in their homes while living.
The Schuyler Sun contains quite an
extended obituary notice of Myron
Prince, aged CO years, which occurred at
that nlace May 7th. Mr. Prince was a
Pennsylvanian by birth, and moved to
Colfax county in i860. Ho located at
Schuyler in 1891, and purchased the old
Hoxie house, making it somewhat famous
by painting it red, white and blue and
naming it "The Soldiers' Home," at
which old veterans were always warmly
welcomed. Mr. Prince was a member of
the G. A. R, and his death was not un
expected, as he had been a sufferer from
asthma for thirty years.
