W. W. Manuington was in the city
Saturday. In fact it was a great day for
out-of-town people, the nice weather of

them all to cover. Among those from
the south side we noticed R. B. Kummer,

Tnn Columbus Journal has started
a boom for tho location of a new state
normal in that city on account of its
convenience as a railroad center. If we
could secure another normal school for
this state we know of no better location
than Columbus. The present normal is
located at the southeastern extremity of
tho state, and is as easy of access to the
people of Iowa and Missouri as to those
of our own state. Cedar Rapids Re

meeting (Jan. 5), it was thought best to
hold in the evening so that, if the W. R.
C. and S. of V. wished to unite in public
installation of officers, the could do so.
The evening congregations of Grace
(Episcopal) church havo been steadily
growing. Last Sunday night Mrs.
Evans sang as a solo, ''Nearer, My God,
to Thee," with organ, cornet and violin
accompaniment. Next Sunday evening
Mrs. Chambers will sing a solo; thiB
feature of the evening service will be
kept up, so far as possible. On the first
Sunday of each month will be held a
special musical service, when evening
prayer will be intoned. A hearty invi
tation is extended to all.
Interesting revival meetings were
held in the Presbyterian church tho last
two weeks, closing Sabbath ovening.
Rev. Dr. S. T. Davis of Omaha assisted

more havo signified their intention to

Half-past one Saturday afternoon, as
we write this item, rain is falling at a
very satisfactory rate; streets are already
muddy, the sky is overcast with clouds
that seem to bo full of moisture. There
aro various estimates as to how long such
a rain can continue in order to fill the
desire of the average man, and the range
is from one to two or three weeks. One
farmer has already (after a half hour's
rain), said that it was worth more than
six inches of snow. If now we only had
reservoirs and ditches scooped out to
hold some of the extra moisture!

E. B. Hammond has just finished
putting down a well for John Ryan, in
Colfax precinct, which is a wonder in
itself and is a great advertisement for
Ed. and his machine. For years Mr.
Ryan has had no well on his farm, not
being able to secure water in the many
attempts, and has had to haul water for
use. The well just completed is 285 feet
deep and the last 150 feet was drilled
through solid'stone. It was slow work,
but makes a fine well and of course the
water is plentiful as it raised to its nat

"Men of Omaha" is an interesting
little 8-page paper published by the "Y"
of that city and in it we find a very
appreciable article concerning Edward
B. Higgins, son of the late Judge Hig
gins, whose sad death was such a severe
blow to his widowed mother and his
fatherless brothers and sisters. It says
'he was a true, bright, manly young man,
talented, most highly valued in the office
in which he was employed." There is a
mistake, however, in saying that Edward
had joined the "Y" at Omaha. Ho was
a member here, having joined some

The Madison Reporter has this to
say concerning tho men captured lifre
by our police, and wanted at Tilden for
robbing a store of $300 worth of goods:
"John Martin the leader had on his per
son an overcoat stolen from McDonald's
store. There is evidently a gang that
makes its headquarters at Omaha and
comes out as far as Columbus and then
scatters. Martin confided to the madam
of one of Columbus' public residences
where he was hiding that he intended to
tap tho Columbus post office the ovening
he was arrested. Postmaster W. E. Pow
ers came down fjom Pierce to see the
prisonors thinking they might be the
fellows who robbed the post office at
that place a week ago."
The premises of M. K. Turner,
corner of Kuramor and Ninth streets,
were quarantined Sunday. Tho case is
that of Rena Turner, aged nine years,
Dr. Voss pronouncing it a light attack,
so far as developed, of scarlet fever.
Three members of the family, the

tho premises Monday morning, under
written permit of City Physician Evans,
and will remain away, unless a change
for the worse should take place, when
he will return and stay.
N. P. Larson, who went to Louisiana
on the 20th ult., with a party of eight,
returned from there on Saturday, and
reported having a splendid trip and says
tho country he visited Crowley and
vicinity is beyond his expectations in
all particulars. Mr. Larson stopped off
two days at Houston and one day at
Beaumont, Texas, and looked over some
land which he says took his fancy very
much. During his visit at Beaumont he
picked some oranges and figs from the
trees and very kindly remembered the

The Herald of Schuyler has this to
say: ''The irrigation meeting called at
Pence's hall Monday night was not as
well attended as tho importance of the
subject would warrant. Messrs. Gates
and Nelson explained the plans of the
company. The incorporators are Orlan
do Nelson, Clayton A. Gates, Ira E.
Gates, Charles A. Woosley and Elon W.
Nelson. The purpose of this incorpora
tion is, as the title suggests, to construct
a canal principally for irrigation purpo
ses. The canal is to start from a point
in the Loup river about two and one-half
miles southeast of Genoa, Nebr., and run
through Platte county and through Col
fax county about as far as Schuyler,
there emptying either into Shell creek or
the Platte river, making a ditch about
forty miles in length and carrying snft
cient water to irrigate at least 150,000
acres. Articles of incorporation have
been filed at Lincoln."
Already, what The Journal had to
say about the location here of a state
normal school is having its effect. Let
our representatives and senator elect be
encouraged by our citizens to look after
this matter, and we believe that the close
of the coming session of the legislature
will find the project well begun. There
is absolutely no single reason that we
know of why the additional institution
(which is certainly needed and in great
demand), should not be located right
here where so many railroads center.
There is no other place in all this north
ern Nebraska except Norfolk that
could begin to compare with Columbus,
and that already has one state institu
tion, so would not be seriously thought
of for this one. Let a splendid, free
pnblic library be fully equipped and put
in first-class running order by the city,
and that one fact alone, in connection
with all our conceded other advantages,
will do much towards securing the state

505 Eleventh St.,
We heard for the first time the other
day an incident concerning Rev. Stevens,
formerly of Grace (Episcopal) church of
this city, that may prove of interest to
some of his acquaintance who used to
wonder why it was that Mr. Stevens was
so active, physically, as well as other
wise. It seems but to the incident.
The society at Lincoln made a contract
with a man to move their church to a
new site, for a certain sum of money.
After getting it to the middle of a very
public thoroughfare, tho contractor con
cluded that his compensation should be
considerably increased and so notified
the society. The city authorities, after
a day or so, began to make complaint,
and Rev. Stevens went to the contractor
and mado a clean-cut presentation of the
case, telling him that if, after a set time,
he did not proceed to fulfill his agree
ment, tho contract would be let to some
body else and he would receive no pay
for what ho had done. The contractor
was very indignant over this and in the
midst of a crowd of people on the thor
oughfare called tho reverend all the
names he could lay his tongue to, but
without disturbing his equanimity, until
ho finally applied a vile epithet reflect
ing upon Mr. Stevens' ancestry, at which
the preacher of the gospel deliberately
took off his coat and' told the contractor
that he could bear most things in tho
way of talk, but he would not let that
pass, und told him that now he would
whip him. This was an astonishing
assertion in the ears of the bystanders,
as the contractor was a largo, active,
strong man, and the preacher certainly
looked tho opposito of largo and strong.
The event, however, was a demonstration
of the scripture truth that the battle is
not always to the strong, because it is
said that the blows rained thick and
fast and hard on the contractor, and
that for some reason he could deliver no
tolling blows in return. The preacher
was a trained athlete, but was in the
habit of using his knowledge for health
ful recreation only.
Tho secretary has furnished us with
the following report of tho meeting
Tuesday ovening of last week.
Mayor Phillips was elected chairman
and Rev. A. J. Rogers secretary. After
an informal discussion as to best meth
od of organization for relief of the poor,
