The services were very impressive and Rev. Rogers, father of the newly ordained minister, preached an excellent sermon. Travel seems to be quite heavy, all trains carrying good loads, people going to all points of the compass, and we notice a good many prairie schooners sailing along the roads with their jib booms set to catch the breezes with the sturdy pioneers at the helm.

Monroe Looking Glass. If a man owned a tract of 40 or 80 acres of land next to the bluffs north of tho city and had the canal built so he could get water onto it, he could raise potatoes so large that they would sur prise even John Tannahill.

He expects shortly to leave for England, bis old home, going by way of Montreal. He says he can get a ticket from Oconee to Liverpool for $46.75, which is pretty fair fare. One thing that shows the pace set for all things in Nebraska is the almost fabulous growth of South Omaha. A late evidence of how things are going there is the fact that one of the several large packing establishments, that of Swift, is erecting a chill-room with a capacity for 4,000 hogs. We are in receipt of the back num bers of the Monroe Republican, a candi date for the favor of newspaper readers. These copies show the ability of the proprietor, R G. Strother, as a printer and news-gatherer, and the Republican will be another helper in the upbuilding of Platte county interests. The motion to dissolve the injunction directed to the school board to prevent them electing a superintendent during June, was heard by Judge Marshall Monday, Sec'y Taylor and Members Gal ley and Lehman being examined as wit nesses, the briefs to be submitted, the court taking the matter under advise ment till next week.

Tho Fullerton News says: The water bonds voted in this town some time ago are no good, because no ordi nance was passed providing for their issuance.

The sun ppots are charged up with the sample of weather we have been re cently having, and those who are accus tomed to observe the sun (through smoked glass and the telescope), inform the unlearned public that the sun spots just now are of unusual appearance. We are assured that the maximum spot display has now been reached and that they will grow smaller from this on. The U. P. Gnn Club is composed of a gentlemanly and large-hearted set of boys, and if any ono thinks they can't shoot, all they will have to do to be con vinced to the contrary will be to attend one of their meets. They had a good meet at their grounds last Saturday and made some fairly good scores. Gus. Schroeder and Gus. Speice came out late to the meet but made each a score of 23 out of 25. Last Thursday's iuBiieof the Central City Courier contained the following: Cards are at hand announcing the mar riage of Mr. Will C. Cates and Miss Laura Leedom at Hooper yesterday. Both of the young people were formerly residents of this place, and aro known to many friends here as an eminently wor thy young couplo, upon whose felicitous union congratulations will be especially numerous and hearty. John Powers lives on a half-section farm in Platte county, attends strictly to his business of Tarniing and stock raising, and has sold since last Novem ber $1270 worth of hogs of his own raising, marketing them at tho average age of eight months. He has 230 acres to corn, 90 to oats, wheat and barley, the barley looks pretty well, the corn may turn out all right, but the oats and wheat don't amount to much, owing to tho dry weather. The tramp nuisance still continues in these parts, growing by what it feeds upon of course. So long as these men can go from town to town, begging their way and thus making their living with out work, they will continue thus to do. Doubtless there are some among them who would, the right circumstances sur rounding, become worthy men after awhile; communities and individuals should do what they can do to prevent this growing evil. Several months ago The Journal spoke of a water-lifter, make by A. W. Armstrong of this city, that has proved a very decided success for irrigating land and raising crops. The elevator is after the fashion of an endless-chain pump set at an angle in the stream whenco water is drawn. The method is being put into use here and there throughout Nebraska, and will certainly prove a profitable investment to such as have the stream.

Being asked as to whether they attended divine services in each of those places, Mr. Lamb said that there was plenty of service while ascend ing some of those hills, and left us to infer the nature of it. Ho says that there was considerable mud on the route, and that the growing crops looked good. He says the talk of poor prospect for crops makes him very tired.

Come again. A number of Schuyler people came up in carriages and on bicycles to witness the game. At the same time there was a game started between the Pumpkin Ridge nine and Smith's Cyclones, six innings recording 14 to 6 in favor of the Cyclones, at which the players ad journed to witness the other game. Children Cry for Pitcher's Cattorla. PERSONAL. Frank Clark arrived here yesterday. A. J. Campbell and Walter Henry started Thursday for Oklahoma.

Pleasant, Iowa, where he spent tho past nine months in a school for foreign missionary preparation. Miss Bertha Krause returned home from Albion Saturday after spending several weeks with her brother. Mrs. J. Krause of Genoa accompanied her, re turning homo Monday. The Nebraska City Press of June 15, has the following paragraph: 'W. H. Gardner, who set everybody connected with the schools in this city by the ears during his superintendence, is after a similar position in the Colum bus city schools." If he is, we have not known it to a certainty, and the information here in regard to him would certainly lead the members of our board of education to make a very searching inquiry, at least, before employing him. Columbus is not in search of a man of doubtful moral worth, inferior scholarship, lack of en thusiasm as an educator, or lack of ex perience in school work. The teacher or superintendent who faithfully, con scientiously and enthusiastically de votes his time and talents to the benefit of the pupils under his charge need never be anxiously striving to secure a place; there are plenty of situations yearning for just such instructors. John Burrell, charged with crimi nally assaulting a Polish girl about 13 years old, had his hearing before Police Judge Hudson Friday and was bound over to the district court in the sum of $500. Tho proceedings were tho result of a report by one Jack Lannin, who, it seems, had had trouble with Burrell and threatened to get even with him. The little girl was frequently at the water works (where Burrell is engineer), to get his clothes for the wash, or deliver them, wheu laundried, and it was on one of these occasions that Lannin claimed to see what ho reported. Burrell and his attorneys are very confident in being able to prove to the satisfaction of a jury that there is a conspiracy against Burrell. The Schuyler Quill says: Owing to the fact of the city of Columbus and the Union Pacific railway company not agreeing on water rates the engines have lately been taking water as far as possi ble at Schuyler George Poole has applied for a divorco from his wife, Belle Woods, to whom ho was married several years ago, but who has never lived with him. Our readers will re member this as the most peculiar mar riage of the times, the bride claiming that she was married to Poole against her will and without her knowledge while acting as bridesmaid. Poolo told a different story and has so far held the marriage contract firm. Millions of cubic feet of water are Mowing down the Platte rivor and being dumped into the Missouri. Thousands of acres of Platte valley produce and grass are wasting away for want of moisture. This vast waste of water spread upon our farms would make the valley a garden of Eden; prosperity would sit upon our thresholds and we could laugh to scorn hard times and its consequent untold privations; and pov orty, wan, gaunt and hollow-eyed would give placo to plentiful contentedness and progressive prosperity. How does the simile strike you? Lexington Pio neer. Mr. and Mrs. N. H. Parks returned Saturday from Chicago whither they had gone to see his nephew, R Carberry, who was reported very seriously ill, but who, he thinks, is in a very fair way to recover. Coming through Iowa he was told that the rain of Friday night and Saturday morning, which they had through" all that section, was the first good soaking rain of the season. Iowa had not been so seriously affected by dry weather for a generation past as up to date this year. Instead of the usual green of spring was the "sere and yellow leaf," and the brown fields of autumn. We are pleased to be able to an nounce that the publisher of the Inter Ocean has made a special offer on the weekly edition of that paper during the present political campaign. He will send the weekly Inter Ocean for six months to any subscriber on receipt of thirty cents. This is a very low price for one of the best and ablest republi can newspapers in the country. Good republicans should try to increase its circulation. Subscriptions will be re ceived at this price from June 1st to August 1st. After that the regular prices will be restored, tf Through some mishap a communi cation in regard to tho closing exercises of the school of Miss Berger at A. W. Clark's grove was mislaid, and did not get in print. "Refreshments were served, after which the school proceeded with a program of exercises consisting of songs and recitations as arranged by their teacher, ffhich were very well ren dered and were very interesting, and showed to the patrons of the school that Miss Berger had done credit to herself in the management of our school during the term just closed." The Platte Center Signal says: Mrs. Pollock of Columbus visited tho family of S. E. Phillips on Monday; David Thomas and daughter took a trip to the county seat Wednesday; Miss Johanna Hayes of Columbus is visiting the Misses Cronin; Lawyer Cornelius visited this place Friday; Charles Segelke was among our business men Friday, as was D.

Heath of Prof. L. .1. Cramer. Died, at Tiffin, Ohio, Juno 12, of apo plexy, L. J. Cramer. Mr. Cramer was born near Tiffin, Sen eca county, December 7, 1845; entered Heidelberg college in his native town at the age of 16 years, graduating in 1869, receiving the dogree of Master of Sci ence. Foraliout three years ho engaged in civil engineering in his nativo state. Sotuo of his friends, noticing his aptness to teach persuaded him, against his wish, to take tho charge of a certain school, and from that timo forward teaching was his profession, though oc casionally lie engaged in surveying. In 1877 he started for Oregon, but on his way stopped off to see Rev. Hull horst of this city (who had been a col lege classmate of his), and was solicited to take charge of tho school here, which he did. Since that time he had been continu ously engaged as an educator, either as principal of our high school, superin tendent of city schools or county super intendent, until health failing he sought the mountain air, and engaged as super intendent of schools at Montrose, Colo., from which place he returned about a year ago, remaining here a few weeks to visit, attending the World's fair and going to see his aged parents, at Tiffin. About eight months previous to his death ho suffered a stroke of paralysis from which it seemed for a long time he was not likely to recover. The final day came as above recorded, and after writing letters to friends in this city, he was stricken down while walking from his desk, at 1 :30 p. in., re maining unconscious until 4:30, when he died. The remains reached here Friday even ing and on Sunday at 2 funeral services were held at Maennercbor hall in the presence of a large concourse of sorrow ing relatives and friends, the Knights of Pythias and Modern Woodmen of the city and vicinity attending in uniform. Rev. Goodale of the Episcopal church officiated, M. Whitmoyer delivering an address, paying a feeling tribute to the merit and worth of the departed. Mrs. Evans, Mrs. Chambers, Mr. Cornelius and Mr. Schroeder, accompanied by Miss Elsie Morse, rendered very appropriate chants and hymns. After the services a large concourse followed the remains to the cemetery, where they were con signed to their final resting place, E. H. Naumann, as chaplain of the Knights, pronouncing the prayer of the ritual. The deceased leaves a widow and his aged mother to mourn the loss of a lov ing husband and son. Tho best tribute of respect to the memory of our departed friend is the recollection of his kindness of heart, the inspiration of his thoughts guided by a judgment unusually clear. Himself a trained thinker, his pupils especially, and all who came under his influence felt the subtle power of his intellect; tho true intellectual life of many began under his teaching and in the hearts of these his lasting monument is. He hated Bhams of all kinds and degrees, and was thoroughly imbued with the scientific method, applying its ever-sure tests to all with which mankind have to do. Let us believe that wherever there is intelligence, honest worth and faith ful endeavor to do right, there the spirit of onr departed friend will ever find a homo. We Sweep the World. It is an old saying that a "new broom sweeps clean" but when we say "we sweep the world" we mean that among all the railways of the world none stands higher in the estimation of the public, in all especial points, than the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway. It is the only line west of Chicago which runs electric-lighted, steam-heated and vesti buled trains between Chicago, St. Paul and Minneapolis, and between Chicago and Omaha. Try it. F. A.

There is no thought of perfecting the organization until after $50,000 shall have boon subscribed, and it is very de sirable that this be done, at once, so as to preserve all the rights of our locality. The gap of 818,000 ought to be closed up at once, as can very readily be done, if those to be benefited will promptly step to the front with their subscrip tions, large and small, and give to Co lumbus, Columbus township, Oconee and Monroe an improvement that will conduce to their welfare more than any other one thing that may be imagined. Give us irrigation for our farming community and cheap power for our manufactures, and the future of this section is secured beyond a peradven tnre. The following resolution was adopted at the last meeting of the stockholders: Resolved, That each party paying in cash on his stock subscription shall re ceive certificates equal to the amount of such cash payments, which certificates 6hall be receivable by tho company from any party holding such certificates in payment for power, light or water at the full faco value of such certificates. This is practical, business-like, and suggests the sound sense that will doubtless characterize the work of the company after the organization shall have been completed. It is, too, a prop osition in strict line with the objects of the company, and will meet the hearty approval of all who may become mem bers. SynopiN of Supervisors' Proceeding.
