They would be delighted with Santa Claus if he would bring them
something to wear instead of those breakable toys, made cheap and
trashy just to last one day. Santa Claus is a very sensible old man, and
he will see that you get something useful this Christmas. Would you
like a new Dress, a new Set of Furs, a new Cloak, a new Hood, new
House Slippers, new Mittens, School Handkerchiefs, Sunday Handker
chiefs, a warm Muffler, nice and warm Woolen Hose?

Bixby is so well written that it deserves
to rank him along with Bobby Burns,
whether you believe what he says or not:
I do not take much stock in law
Aa food for those who disagree;

From contestant and contest:.
It takes from both till both are broke
And broken, feel 'twere well to die.

E. B. Hall has been in tbo city sev

tendent of schools in Valley county.
His son T. L. is a practicing attorney,
having offices at both Ord and Burwell.
Mrs. Hall is also a practicing attorney
and a very capable assistpnt to her hus
band. Leslie, the 12-year-old son of
T. L., by his first wife, and who had
been living with his grandparents, died
last year after an illness of live months.
L. G. Zinnecker is going on with his
improvements at his ranch east of the
city. His largo reservoir, in anticipation
of irrigating the tract, is now being filled
by water pumped from the never-failing
supply below, by one of the Benster
wind engines, the invention of a Ne
braska man. It is somewhat of a cari
osity, and does its work very handsomely,
filling the reservoir to the depth of four
inches in five hours. Mr. Zinnecker will
have a very valuable piece of property in
his land before many years.
This will not do. Newspaper re
porters, writers and editors must be
more careful or else call the observant
typo to their assistance. A Seward
paper published an obituary of a doctor
the other day, and now is compelled by
the force of circumstances to occupy
considerable space in explaining, the
doctor having concluded that to live and
work for the good of other people is
better than to go hence. Newspapers
must learn not to advertise other peo
ple's business without pay.

several members of Baker Post in at
tendance. Eugene Bacon was in the city Mon
day and gave us a call on business. By
the way he gave us some account of the
wells he has been sinking in the county
we refer to the artesian wells, five of
which he has sunk, viz: for W. B. Jones,
Fred. Wolf, Bobert Lewis, the Williams
heirs and a second one for W. B. Jones,
which he uses for irrigation purposes,
having last year watered a fine two-acre
patch planted to corn and potatoes.
This was done without a reservoir. Mr.
Bacon thinks that with a good reservoir
Mr. Jones can irrigate twenty acres suc
cessfully. Besides these five artesian
wells put down by Mr. Bacon, there are
two others sunk by other parties, one for
David Thomas, the other for Joseph
Joseph, and all the seven are flowing in
fine shape. Mr. Bacon tells us that there
are many wells, deep ones too, in Platte
county in which the water rises to within
a very few feet of the surface. One well
on the Lowery ranch north of Platte
Center, is 115 feet-deep, and the water
struck in the6-foofe layer of gravel at the
bottom, rose to within five feet of the
surface. This shows what we might
reasonably expect on going somewhat
deeper down and getting a little greater

An exchange tells how to keep warm
as follows: "Not all of us know that
deep and forced respirations will keep
the entire body in a glow in the coldest
weather, no matter how thinly one may
be clad. A physician declares this to
be a fact worth remembering. He was
himself half frozen to death one night,
and began taking deep breaths and
keeping the air in his lungs as long as
possible. The result was that he was
thoroughly comfortable in a few min
utes. The deep respirations stimulate
the blood current by direct muscular
exertion, and cause the entire system to
become pervaded with the rapidly-generated

f The funeral of John Stauffer on
Wednesday afternoon last was one of
the largest in the history of the city.
The opera house was crowded to its ut
most capacity, besides citizens in gen
eral there were, in body, the Maennor
chor, the Knights of Pythias, the Uni
form Bank ot the sumo order, the Mod
ern Woodmen, two camps of this city
and visiting brothers from Monroe and
Platto Center, the I. O. O. F. and Fire
men. After a dirge by the Columbus
Cornet Band, appropriate music by the
Maeunerchor, on address in German by
Rev. Da Geller, also an address in Eng
lish by Judge Hudson, and a hymn by
the choir of the German Reformed
church, tho cortege formed, and the re
mains were conveyed to their final rest
ing place in the Columbus cemetery,
W. B. Dale conducting the services at
the grave for the Knights of Pythias.
The memory of John Stauffer will be
cherished in the hearts of all his ac
quaintances as one of onr best citizens.
We are to have a history of Platte
county, including forty years of her
active youth from 1856 to 1896. The
history is to be written by C. A.Brindley
who is fully capable in every respect, and
fitted for the task by reason of his inti
mate acquaintance with the people of
the county during a considerable portion
of the time to be covered by the record.
There are a great many interesting inci
dents known to those now living that
would make delightful reading, and be
of permanent worth in the future of Ne
braska. The time is coming when a his
tory of Platte county, such as can now
be written by Mr. Brindley, will be con
sidered indispensable to every household
in the county and to every one of their
kindred who may migrate to other parts.
The time will doubtless come when there
will be at least one family resident on
every quarter section in the county, with
orchards and groves and highly-cultivated
fields; multitudes of school houses,
churches, township halls, splendid roads
and consequently more numerous social
gatherings and greater facilities for im
provement and progress in all lines of
thought and action. A portion of the
proposed history is to be devoted to illus
trations of the first house, school house,
bank, church; also coaches, wagon and
hand-cart train, etc. Of this part the
Argus says: "Miss Martha Turner will
take charge of the art department of the
history which insures success in that
line. Miss Turner is well and favorably
known by the citizens of the county
an artist of ability, as her work in the
past will show. She spent some time
the art institute in Chicago and is looked
upon as a rising young artist, who will
in a short time reach the goal of her
ambition and bring honor to the county
and state of which she is a resident."
The JouBXAif would suggest that those
who are interested in having a first-class
history furnish the writer with any facts
in their possession.-

Once more death has iavaded the pre
cincts of our Pythian realm aad removed
from our midst a beloved brother, John
We shall ever miss the warn clasp of
his friendly hand, the kindly tone of his
voice and the cheery greeting so charac
teristic of him.
By his loving acts we learned maoh of
what it is to live to be a kind haebaad,
a loving father and a true and sympa
thetic friend; in fact, approaching to all
that true Pythianism teaches.
In his sudden death we have learned
something of the uncertainty of human
life. It is a vapor that vanishes away;
a shadow that fleet h; a span; a hand
breadth; a nothing!
We sincerely regret his departure, and
mingle our tears with those of the be
reaved widow and orphans, extending to
them our hearfelt sympathy in this,
their hour of trial, with the full assur
"Other hearts share the burden of (rrieTias,
When loved ones lie under the pall."
