tongue ever stuck fast in his throat.
There is considerable complaint
against men and boys who bathe in the
river in close view of the people who

There is a law against indecent expos

The ministers of Norfolk, as repre
senting in part the moral and religions
sentiment of the community, made a
protest against the excursion to that
city Sunday last, as being a violation of
a statute of Nebraska, which makes each
person of the age of 14 years or upwards
amenable to a fine of $20 and twenty
days in jail.
J. C. Martin of Clarks was in the
city Monday. He had been to David
City to see a game of ball between a nine
of that place and Schuyler; the latter
was victor by 20 to 11. David City was
very confident at first and bet 2 to 1.
Afterwards the other side turned the
tables and it is supposed $1,000 changed
hands. Schuyler had the Nonpareil
battery of Omaha.
Jack Echols and his force of men
did a very successful piece of work Fri
day for Greisen's. One of the large

out the glass without breakage, and
place a new one of full size. It took
several men several minutes, but the
feat was accomplished without accident.

an elaborate scale, with special scenery,
their own special stage, and all produced
under canvas. You will see it played

count of small halls and no scenery.

Reports from the north and north
west section of the state are very dis
couraging. The corn crop is drying up
very fast and that is about our only
hope, as the small grain is almost a
failure from drouth. The Journal
would advise farmers not to wait until
corn is too dry for fodder, but cut so
soon as you are sure there is to be i;o
more growth of grain.

Jacob Stege of the vicinity of Elgin,
Nebr., was in the city Friday. He is

country, his loss being about 31,800.
Having a cyclone cave about 150 feet
from the dwelling, the family got into

It is expected that Miss Lucy Hay
wood of Grand Island will give a music

of this city at an early date. Miss Hay

C. A. Newman returned Saturday
from Kansas, whither he had gone to in
vestigate irrigation by wind power and
wells. He brought home quite a fund
of information, having seen a number of
places where the system is very success
ful. The mills in use are generally
with wheels of 12 feet diameter; large
reservoirs are made by scooping out the
ground and piling it around as a wall,
and from this the water is led by pipes
as needed, over 8 to 10 acres, to each
A rainmaker in India sends a rocket
up a mile; the rocket contains a reser
voir of ether; in its descent a parachute
opens and, as it slowly descends, ether
is thrown out in fine spray and its ab
sorption of heat is said to lower the
temperature about sufficiently to con
dense the vapor and produce a limited
shower. So says the Norfolk Journal
editor. "Whatever lowers the tempera
ture of the air at any place below the
dew point, is a cause of rain," is a well
known law. But if there is no moisture
in the air, what then?

Final arrangements are being made
for the relay race from Washington, D.
C, to Denver. F. H. Lamb is the only
member of the American Wheelman's
league in this city and so the Lincoln
club will take charge from Columbus to
Duncan, the next telegraphic stop. Mr.
Lamb says that between Schuyler and
this city there will probably be about
five relays, where the cyclists will change
off, two new riders taking up the race at
each station appointed, and the first
who reaches the telegraphic station
sends the telegram of arrival. The race
from Columbus will take place about
the 16th of August.
Rev. Killip had a little experience
with confidence men in the city of New
York before boarding his vessel for the
old country. It was the same old story
of a fellow stranger in the city, knew
many of his acquaintances, 'etc., was
a Nebraskan going the same way, but
wanted to get the cash on a 8100 draft
didn't have time to run to the bank.
Strange to say that the reverend gentle
man didn't become suspicious before
this stage of the proceeding, bnt he
didn't. He assured the two "friends"
(they generally hunt in pairs), that he
had but two dollars with him for the
day's expenses and therefore could not
accommodate them, of course.

Mr. and Mrs. J. G. Reeder enter
tained a number of friends Thursday
evening, which proved to be a gathering
of artists. Mrs. Reeder offered three
prizes to the ones who should, blind
folded, draw the best picture of a pig.
Most people would not think there was
so much beauty in a picture of a hog as
that crowd managed to get from it.
Mr. Clark Gray possesses the first prize
and we hare been requested to state
that the other artists assembled felt a
pang of jealousy since Mr. Gray was one
of the committee to award the prizes.
Mr. Gray will with time and a sufficient
amount of practice, become an excellent
artist as the reader may judge when he
gazes at the picture, a fac simile of
which we give below. Mr. Gray re
deemed himself, however, by presenting
Mrs. Reeder with the third prize, for
appointed him as one of the
Saengerfest in Columbia.
In answer to the article in the Omaha
Bee of July 22d, 1)4, the Germans of Ne
braska can congratulate themselves that
there is so much enthusiasm in regard
to the Saengerfest to be held in Colum
bus August 24, 25 and 26. It shows that
love of good music and social gathering
is not yet dead.
Regarding the particular Fest Song
"Die Geisterschlacht" that tho Fest
Director, E. Pohl, made selection of,
being a mistake (as selecting too diffi
cult a composition), we only can say that
we counted on the Omaha societies to
carry away the palm, and we expect that
they will do their utmost best to show
that the Germans are alive yet, especially
in music. But the remark that the
Omaha's will be perhaps the only
societies in Nebraska who will be called
on to sing said song is entirely wrong.
Further that the Fest Director ought
to ask other societies what orchestra ho
should engage to accompany said very
difficult Fest Song, it need only be said
that Mr. Pohl has not engaged the or
chestra and if he had to do so, he would
probably not ask any advice except of
those who are interested in the singing.
This financial business is entirely to be
transacted by the Columbus Maenner
chor and uot by all societies belonging
to the Bond.

We Sweep the World.
It is an old saying that n "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. NasR,
