About thirty of Eddie Coolidge's little friends ranging from 8 to 14 years old went iu a body and surprised him last Friday afternoon, the event being his tenth birthday.

The game of base ball Sunday be tween the Cyclones and the Punkin Bidgers was decidedly the best yet played in the city, so we are told. The Cyclone battery was Murphy and Hem pieman; that of the Bidgers, Corbett and Herring, the umpire, Scott, the game lasting 2 hours and 15 minutes. The score stood: Punkin Bidgers. Cyclones .0 0001000 5-6 .0 0010104 2-8 We give in this week's Journal a considerable portion of the official pro ceedings of the county board of super visors; the remainder will follow next week. We notice that the board are looking sharply after claims against the county, rejecting some, reducing others, etc. As to the matter of drawing a warrant on the general fund, in favor of John Stauffer, ex-county clerk, for S2, 108.22, claimed as illegally paid by him, after considerable discussion was finally referred to the county attorney for his written opinion. It was a gratification to everybody but not a surprise to those who were in formed, when artesian water was struck on the Hen rich farm; the same was when a second well was bored on the Fred. Wolf farm eight miles north of Monroe, from which the water gushed with still greater force than it did from the first well. We say that this is no surprise to many because for years, in wells 30 to 185 feet deep, water has risen nearly to the surface, lacking G to 20 feet. In boring deep wells we are apt to find valuable deposits. 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 The popular resort, Burlington Beach, has been greatly enlarged and beautified, and is today without an equal in the state of Nebraska. Every facility for boating, bathing and sailing is pro vided. The steamer ''City of Lincoln" is once more in commission and is pat ronized daily by delighted hundreds. The outlook from the cool, shady, breeze-swept rloor of the big dancing pavilion is as pleasant as can be found anywhere. A hrst-class brass band is in constant attendance. There are half a dozen refreshment booths. In fact, ev erything that contributes to the enter tainment and amusement of visitors is' at hand. Monday morning about six o'clock lightning struck the house of Clark Cooncy in Council Creek township and literally riddled the east side of his house. It struck the chimney and came on down passing through the bedroom occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Cooncy and their two youngest children. The side of Mrs. Cooncy's face was burned some what and all more or less felt tho effects of the shock. The carpet was set on fire but this was immediately put out. The house was damaged to the extent of about $300, bjit as no one was seriously injured, Clark feels as though the damage was light under the circum stances. Fullerton Post. The Dussel horse took a notion Monday morning to break away from the hitching post on Eleventh street. He was caught in three minutes on Twelfth no particular damage. Just a few minutes afterwards the Segelke team started up from a freight train near the U. P. depot, landing Charlie Segelke and Frank Lucas under the wagon, spilling out several cases of pop, the end of the tongue plowing the ground for a few feet and then the wagon-bed rising and falling with a crash which freed the team. They started for a free-for-all raco through the town, but were stop ped by a switch east of the U. P. pas senger depot. The young boys in sight wero of course attracted to the spot and had plenty of free pop to drink. No body hurt. Niels Olson drove down Saturday from Creston for the purpose of attach ing his signature as chairman of the county board of supervisors to the war rants ordered drawn at the last meeting of the board. Clerk Phillips, however, has been sick, also Mr. Dale, and as the warrants were not ready for Mr. Olson's signature, he went home to await the call of the clerk. He tells us that with the rain of Wednesday last there came quite a bit of hail, some stones as large as walnuts, and that small grain looked considerably worsted after the storm. Thursday forenoon they had an old fashioned, soaking rain. Coming from Creston in, the appearance of tho grow ing crops was so changed for the better that, after a week's absence, the country was scarcely recognizable. We would like to devote a column to institute notes and work, but must content ourselves with deferring it till next week, suffice to say that tho in structors, Leavy, O'Connor and Parsons, with Sup't Bothleitner, have been in dustriously at work all week, and Prof. Clcmmons of Fremont on Friday, pres ent for a few minutes, gave an interest ing talk; Mrs. Williams of Lincoln visit ed the institute Friday in the interest of the reading circle; Prof. Miller of Lincoln also called on Friday, and State Sup't Goudy delivered an interesting lecture to the teaohers at the Congrega tional church Monday evening. The institnte closes this week. Instructors O'Connor and Parsons, unknown before to our teachers, have made many warm friends by their evident zeal and effi ciency in their work. Last Wednesday forenoon there was quite a flurry on Olive street. Police man Brandt was after a man (one of five suspects who scattered when the officer put in an appearance), he follow ing the supposed leader, and making a 6hot that took a nip off the Telegram office. The fellow ran up against W. R. Brock and was squaring off for fight, but thought better of it and gave up. When Brandt came up he was consider ably excited and struck the man over the head with his billy, when he was offering no resistance whatever, and while he was being held by Mr. Brock. Evidently Policeman Brandt was too much excited to act coolly, or else by the blow he wished to punish the man for running away, so that, so far as the arrested man was concerned he might be thankful of escape with his life. Mr. Brandt has probably tired of "mon keying" with so many tramps every month, and if the word goes out that the policemen of Columbus are in the habit of making a target of tramps, there will be a host of them go around this city. Another version of the affair is that the tramps concerned had jewelry on their persons (presumably stolen), and were being taken to the lock up, when they burst away from the police man. An on-looker says that the tramp made a lunge as though he would get away, and that Brandt tapped him so lightly with his club that he laughed at the blow "it wouldn't have killed a keeter."

The funeral was at 3 o'clock Sunday from the Catholic church, the remains being placed in the Catholic cemetery in the presence of a host of friends from different parts of the county. An Eye Opener. Editor Journal: At Capernaum Jesus paid tribute without grumbling, although not a stranger, and according to Matthew, 22, 21, "Render therefore unto Caesar, the things which are Caesar's; and unto God tho things that are God's." duty to the state comes first; duty to God afterwards. If a man will not pay the first, he will have no respect to the last. Therefore no true follower of Jesus will refuse to pay his just ap portionment of taxes. "Equality before the law" is the motto of Nebraska, and the working principlo cf our free gov ernment. How does it come, then, that the property of our protestant ministers is assessed and that of the priests of the Roman hierarchy is not assessed? How does our county board make out that kitchens, dining-rooms, dormitories, with all the utensils and appurtenances thereto, are used "exclusively for re ligious purposes," and therefore, under the law, exempt from taxation?
