One thing that shows the pace set
for all things in Nebraska is the almost

capacity for 4,000 hogs.

The U. P. Gnn Club is composed of
a gentlemanly and large-hearted set of
boys, and if any ono thinks they can't

late to the meet but made each a score
of 23 out of 25.

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.

each of those places, Mr. Lamb said that
there was plenty of service while ascend

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.

An exciting game of base ball was
played here Sunday between a good
nine from Schuyler and "Mike" Abts'
"Tenderfeet" The battery of the
Schuylerites was loaded almost too
heavy for our boys, hence they got "done

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.

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
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.

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."

ing. 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
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

and Minneapolis, and between Chicago

The committee appointed to solicit
stock have been very industriously at
work and have secured $32,000 in sub
scriptions of $100 a share.
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.
