We are indebted to E. F. Folda, esq.,
for a copy of the report of the condition
of the banks in Colfax county for Decem
ber, 1893. There are, all told, ten banks
with assets ranging from thirteen thou
sand to two hundred and thirty thousand
dollars, and their loans vary from eight
to one hundred and seventy-two thous
and, the grand total of loans for the
entire county being $381,592.06. This is
a good showing for these hard times.
The truth is there is no better founda
tion for a prosperous commercial com
munity than a good agricultural county,
and if central Nebraska and, indeed, the
greater part of the state is not that,
there is none.
Tomorrow personal taxes are delin
quent, and bear ten per cent interest.
One of our exchanges, the Albion News,
suggests that, the times being close, the
county treasurer should not pile up fees
and mileage serving distress warrants,
seeing that, if the money was collected,
it would simply go towards increasing
the already large pile in the treasury,
which goes into the hands of a deposi
tory bank at 4 per cent, while, if it re
mains in the hands of the tax-payer, the
county gets 10 per cent. The safest
way, however, is to pay your taxes, if
you can, possibly, when they are due; if
not then, so soon as you can after delin
quency. Down at Schuyler the commissioner
of lights and waterworks has been sell
ing city coal to the city employes at cost,
upon the same ground that all corpora

they deal in at cost price, and supposed
it was all right. He admitted that he
should have first asked the advice of the
council on the matter, but contends that
he did nothing out of the way.
Miss Grace Gerrard came near hav

Communities have been accus

a cowardly villian.

Last week we noted the death at her
home in Platte Center, January 22d, of
Mrs. William Bloedorn. The funeral
took place from the Baptist church
Thursday morning. Rev. Elwell and
Matzke officiating. The remains were
interred in the Monroe cemetery by the
side of her mother and brother. The
deceased was born in Rochester, N. Y.,
September 30, 1857, and at the time of
her death was 36 years, 3 months and
22 days old. June 22, 1876, she was mar
ried to William Bloedorn. Of the nine
children born to them, the youngest is
four months and the eldest sixteen years
of age, all living. The Signal says
further: 'On every hand could be heard
expressions of deep regret by the loss of
this good woman, irrespective of class,
creed or denomination, so well had she
performed her work here on earth. Still,
while her good deeds are noticeable on
every hand, she did not neglect her fam
ily. It was here that her attention was
centered, and in her own words, 'thought
the very best thing I could do for them
would be to give them myself. So I
spared no pains to talk to them, to teach
them, to pray with them and be a loving
companion and friend to my children.' "
If you watch our report of tax sales,
it may save you a considerable sum of
money one of these days. Thomas Jeff
erson said: "Eternal vigilance is the
price of liberty," and nothing is truer.
It is precisely the same species of watch
fulness that is exacted in the defense of
home, and the preservation of property
rights, because these are only adjuncts
of liberty. In our list this week there
are a dozen pieces of property, some
tracts of land and several city lots, upon
which tax-liens have lately been placed,
and the interest on these now is twenty
per cent, going to the investors, and not
to the county. If you borrow the money
of a bank and redeem your land, you
pay only ten per cent, just half what is
allowed by law to the investor in tax
titles. Of course the oftener redemp
tions are made the more compounding
of interest at 20 per cent takes place,
and the more is thus made for those who
have the money to invest in these secur
ities (the best in the world), but it is to
the advantage of the land or lot owner
to allow no lien upon his land, if he can
help it. If you have one get rid of it as
soon as you can see your way cleir.
Mrs. Carrie B. Wells, an estimable
lady of Lincoln, who officiated as post
mistress in the Nebraska building at the
World's Fair, and who was for a number
of years deputy register of deeds in this
county, is a central figure in a group of
incidents, which, taken together, make
almost a romance. Nine years ago her
husband, with whom she was living in
Columbus, Neb., disappeared. All trace
of him was lost, and he was finally sup
posed to be dead. At the end of seven
years after his disappearance Mrs. Wells
collected the life insurance which her
husband had carried in her favor. A
few days ago a man died at a small town
in Arkansas, and on his death bed he
revealed his identity. He was the hus
band of Mrs. Wells. He had lived in the
town seven years under an assumed
name. The above is from the Lincoln
department of the Omaha Bee of the
23d. Mr. Wells was an attorney here
nine years ago. He suddenly disap
peared one night and his whereabouts
was a complete mystery, it being believed
bv his friends that he had been murdered.
This is the way Columbus is being
advertised just now. The Fullerton
News says: "The improved Stock Breed
ers' Association of our great state of
Nebraska will hold its annual meeting
at the capital of Platte county on the
20th of February. It will be a three
days session. Interesting addresses will
be given by Hon. J. B. Wolfe, Hon. W.
S. Summers, Hon. J. B. Dickenson, Hon.
S. M. Barker, Prof. Ingersoll, Mark M.
Coad, C. H. Searle, A. J. Hendryx, R. M.
Allen, Mrs. A. M. Edwards, Thos. Miller
and others. Secretary-Treasurer, H. S.
Reed, says that every effort will be made
to make this session from the address of
welcome to the farewell toast of the
banquet the banner meeting of the asso
ciation. Every one interested in stock
growing in this county should go to Co
lumbus and hear these discussions.
As we go to press Tuesday after
noons, we cannot of course give the
proceedings of the public meeting of the
citizens called by Mayor Schupbach for
last evening, to devise ways and means
of helping the needy poor. So many de
mands have been made upon the author
ities that this step was thought advisa
ble, and no doubt great good will result
from the action taken and to be taken.
There is not, as a rule, so much suffering
in small places as in cities, but there is
enough of it anywhere, and if thoso who
have the ready means will give of their
abundance to those who have not the
necessaries of life for their little ones,
and who, during these hard times, cannot
get employment, they will be doubly
blessed in the deed.
It used to be a common saying, in
the olden time, when wheat was cut with
the sickle or the cradle, that there is
always plenty of work in harvest time.
There are a good many different kinds
of harvest. After the farmer has gath
ered all his grain and stored it, he can
then turn his attention to the harvests
for which the other harvest was prepar
atory, viz: feeding his stock of various
kinds, and converting his grain into
beef, pork, eggs, milk, cheese, butter,
mutton, wool, etc. When the weather is
too bad for out-of-door work, he can saw
wood in the shed, repair machinery,
make gates, or busy himself about the
house in labor-saving devices for the
kitchen. The old rule of morals holds
good here, too. do the duty lying near
est, and that will make plain to you the
next, and so on. But we started out to
say that just now is the harvest of ice.
The insurance companies have given
Schuyler policy holders notice of a raise
of twenty per cent in rates, and of
course the newspapers are, in the inter
ests of the people, kicking against the
advance. If the business houses were
mainly of wood and if they had no
waterworks, there might be some reason
in the raise. What has happened to
Schuyler, may happen to Columbus one
of these days. One exchange suggests
Ias an effective remedy the organization
cf mutual insurance companies.

To seek a man amid the temptations
of a city and save him from moral or

large part the work of the Young Men's

On one of the cold nights last week
two men, at least, spent the night in
Columbus without supper or bed. Dar
ing these cold days and these terrible
times of "no work and no money," do not
turn a man from your door withont a
bite to eat and a pleasant word. "Inas
much as ye have done it unto one of the
least of these, ye have done it unto me."
Within the bosoms of these dirty, ragged
men are souls God prizes as highly as
those of Yanderbilt, Wannamaker, Har
rison or Cleveland, and many of them are
rough diamonds only waiting for the
hands or words of the polisher.

Mrs. Fred. Luckey, jr., is reported as
being sick for a long time, with but little
change if any, for the better.
There were no religious services at the
school house Sunday evening, the weath
er being a little cool and the roads rough.
My! what a winter this is, pigs basking
in the sun, Iambs cavorting, horses graz

Charlie Vogt, who for three years
served Fred. Stenger as foreman on his
extensive ranch near the city, and who
with his brother the last yea? rented and
worked 160 acres of Mr. S's. land, has not
decided yet just what he will do this

Tuesday of last week was a very fine
day, and Joe Drinmn was seen on the
streets in Columbus with a new large
stirring plow Joaded upon his wagon,
driving up one street and down another.
We thought first he had borrowed the
plow from a dealer, and was driving
around town thinking it would assist in
removing cobwebs from the. eyes of his
brother farmers, but when we saw him
later, he still had the plow in his wagon,
had tailed to the west and was leaving
Our school was storm bound Tuesday
of last week; your correspondent ditto.

Charlie Egbert, of Colfax, went over
to O. D. Butler's Friday evening to have
a hunt with his chum Alvin the nest day.
Sam Reinke is suffering with one of
those torturing "felons" which was so
bad as to necessitate the calling in of a
physician. Sam has our sympathy.
Henry Lusche, who unceremoniously
went away about three weeks ago, we
learn is now in Wisconsin. It was also
rumored that Mr. L. had one of his
limbs accidentally broken while there.
Financial embarrassment, we believe, is
the cause of his temporary absence.
In school district 23, Colfax county,
teacher and scholars have been having a
little tilt. Teacher accuses scholars of
using tobacco, and scholars accuse her
of teaching them that Washington's
birthday comes on Feb. 11 of each year.
Each party have acknowledged their
faults and everything runs smoothly
One of our farmers recently took a
quantity of buckwheat to a toll grist
mill, and ordered the grain to be con
verted into flour, shorts and bran; the
grain was weighed when left, and when
the farmer went for his grist, the same
was weighed again, when it fell short in
his estimation more than the lawful toll,
whereupon the farmer loaded into his
wagon what was left, and refused to pay
cash for grinding as was agreed. A civil
suit will probably settle the above and
leave a precedent.
