A. Anderson about tobacco seed says
that a tablespoon fnl is enough to raise

in a warm room, usually under the
kitchen stove, about a week, sow on a
well pulverized seed bed, say 6x30 feet

We notice that at Lincoln the fol
lowing points were urged against differ
ent parties applying for license to sell
liquors: one had used back rooms and
an upper story for gambling and other
illegal purposes; one had obstructions
in his windows and doors; one had wine
running the right kind of a place; one
wanted to open a saloon in a block where
there were already two saloons. Mayor
Weir introduced a resolution that no
license be granted to any saloon keeper
who is behind in the personal city taxes
on his saloon, and the resolution carried
unanimously. A councilman introduced
an amendment to the rules providing
that any citizen might file a complaint
against any saloon keeper and the latter
shall appear before the excise board for
trial, and upon conviction his license
shall be revoked.
Last week we made brief mention of

He was born in New Haven, Conn., in
1S31: when three years old his parents
moved to Illinois. In 1S56 he graduated
from the Iowa Medical University and
came to Omaha, remaining until the
following spring, when he came to Co
lumbus, where he has since resided.
He and George W. Hewett came from
Omaha, on foot, through the snow,which
is recorded as being three feet deep, in
the month of March. In August the
county was organized, and Dr. Stillman
was chosen the first justice of the peace;
he was the second county clerk, follow
ing F. G. Becher, and preceding H. J.
Hudson; he was the first recorder; in
the line of coroners he was the fifth; he
was the first doctor and for nine years
the only physician of this vicinity. He
has been mayor of the city, and in many
ways have the people shown their confi
dence in him as a citizen. In 1S71 he
was married to Misb Celia L. Edwards,
who, with their children, Charles L-.
Albert E. and Lela, survive him. The
funeral services are being held at the
residence of the family as we go to

The good doctor's long life among us
deserves a more extended account than
our space affords this week. One of our
first and best citizens has passed to the
spirit world. leaving his best memento
in the hearts of hosts of friends who
knew him and loved him for his intelli
gent interest in the affairs of life.
