Thursday evening about 6:30 two
men came into the store of F. M. Cannon
on Fifteenth street, and managed to so
engage the attention of the proprietor as
to give one of them an opportunity to
steal a suit of clothes. After a little
while the theft was noticed and the
pair of pants found on one of the thieves.
Brought before Judge Hudson, they
gave their names as James Murphy and
Charles Dickenson, were fined 825, each,

were sent to jail.
The Fair Association have secured
the celebrated Doubt family, orchestra
and band players, for one of the attrac
tions of the fair next month. They
have been playing at Chautauqua
grounds and Burlington Beach at Lin
coln during the summer, and are highly
spoken of. There is nothing like music
to draw a crowd, and the association
have secured a treat for the people in
getting this family. A balloon ascen
sion by a lady aeronaut is one of the at
tractions. When in need of any kind of job
work, calling cards, letter heads, envel
opes, bill heads, statements, dodgers,

of any kind in the printing line, bring
your orders to The Journal and be
pleased, both as to quality of goods and
work, and also price and promptness.
Orders by mail receive careful attention.
Of all the great, great newspapers of
the middle and western United States,

We have made arrangements so that we
can furnish yon this paper along with
your other literature. Come and see us

Fred. Marolf of Nebovillo was in
the city Monday, and not only renewed
his subscription to The Journal, which
he has taken for a number of years, but
also added the Lincoln Journal to the
sum of current literature provided for
the use of his family. He is one of that
class of men who look upon the facts of
life's situations with the same strength
that they themselves have, and make
the best of them.
James Scott has entered into a
business for which he seems peculiarly
adapted, that of training horses, having
had several triumphs in that line lately,
that no man need be ashamed of. To
one who is the owner of a very valuable
horse, services of this kind that render
the animal gentle, kind and safe are al
most without price, when the contin
gencies of family driving are concerned.

Commissioner Indian Affairs, Wash

that I have made arrangements to enter
a business which is more profitable than
my present position, I hereby tender
you my resignation as superintendent
of the Indian school at this place, to
take effect September 30, 1893.
The records of your office will show
that the Genon Indian school has made
more improvements and grown faster
during the last five years than any other
school in the service. This has been
due largely to the untiring industry of
the boys and girls of the school and the
faithful and loyal support of nearly all

Dr. W. M. Condon and Miss Nancy
Ottis, both of Humphrey, were married
in the Catholic church at that place,
Thursday morning at 9 o'clock. The
ceremony was a very pretty one; the
groomsmen in attendance were Dr. A.
Condon of Springfield, 111., and Messrs.
Dan and Frank Ottis. The bridesmaids
were Miss Mary Ottis, Miss Phoebe
Phillips of Platte Center, and Miss Lulu
Allen of Madison. Friends of tho couple
from towns adjoining as well as from
Humphrey were present to witness the
ceremony. The couple took the noon
train for Chicago and other points east,
to be gone a few weeks. On their return
they will move into the fine new residence
just north of the Catholic church. The
young couple enjoy a large circle of ac
quaintances. The bride is tho accom
plished daughter of T. K. Ottis, and the
groom has been for several years a den
tist in Humphrey, Madison, Platte Center
and Leigh. May they always be happy
is the wish of The Journal.
The free entertainment Monday
evening at the opera house, given by the
Ancient Order of Hibernians, was the
musical treat of the season. The house
was crowded to overflow. We cannot
give a full account, as all deserve
special mention. The following were on
the program: Mrs. Cotton, Mrs. Moel
ler, Mr. Wilkins, Mr. Pennoll, Mr. But
ler all of Omaha, Mrs. Barber, Miss
Kittie Kavanaugh and Mr. and Mrs.
Garlow. The program was interspersed
with piano and vocal solos, duetts and
quartettes. Father Bruen, state chap
lain of the A. O. H., gave a short talk as
to the aim and work of the order, and
denying all charges made of their carry
ing arms in secret. He spoke in a very
entertaining way, and held the close at
tention of his listeners throughout.
Don't forget to prepare something
for the Platte county fairs. It will pay
you in more ways than one. In merely
determining what you will take you will
doubtless think of many important little
things that have escaped your attention
for some time. There is uothiug like go
ing oTer your possessions once in a while
to see what you really have got around
you. A little thought of how your prod
ucts may chance to look in the eyes of
your acquaintances will not hurt the just
pride that yon should always entertain
for what is yours because it is yours.
(Then, wife and children will think no less
V)f you if yon provide that all of them shall
ave good opportunity to attend the fair.
Try it and see how it works.
A number of gentlemen met at the
parlor of the Thurston Monday evening
to consider the preliminaries of another
canal-power scheme. Outside capital
seems to have offered itself in the con
struction of an irrigation ditch and
water-power on the bluff line. It was
decided that the necessary money could
be raised to make the proposed survey
and estimates of cost, etc., to ascertain
whether the bluff ditch is practicable or
not, and authorized the parties in cor
respondence with the outside capitalists
to invite them to meet the citizens of
Columbus and vicinity in the near fu
