R. S. Dickinson's spirited team at
tached to a light spring wagon took a
notion for a fly around Saturday, be
tween the tracks and east of the Ele

they floundered in the water for some
minutes before they were extricated.
Mr. Dickinson wasn't in the wagon all
the while, and we are glad to record that
nobody was hurt.
Yesterday morning as John Tan
nahill drove into the alley in rear of

delivery wagon had struck the corner
and he and his boxes were lying on the
ground. John got up smiling and un
hurt, but he had to have some repairs
made on the wagon.
A telegram was received Saturday
evening by George Barnum telling him
of the sudden death, that afternoon at
five, of his sister, Mrs. Sarah Lisco, at
Fort Worth, Texas. Her husband, John
Lisco, died in 1889. She leaves three
children, Willie, Joseph and Mary, aged
respectively, 16, 14 and nine years. Just
a week before her death she left here,
after a two weeks' visit among friends,
remarking that she was enjoying un
usual good health.

day, but they really couldnt help it.
The next time they come to Fullerton
on Sunday they are going to build wire

The charging of 10 cents as an ad

The dailies of Thursday contained a
telegram from Lead, South Dakota, an
nouncing that the Hulst & Price lumber
company had assigned to F. G. Rugg of
Rapid. Theirs is the largest lumber
company in the Hills, having yards in
Lead, Deadwood, Rapid, Hot Springs
and Edgemont. The assignment was a
great surprise as the firm have always
been conservative and successful. The
assets are thought at this time to far
exceed the liabilities. The business is
running. Both members of the firm
were former citizens of Columbus.
One mile north of Milford, Sunday
night, F. B. Jeffries, engineer on a B. &
M. freight train, when turning a sharp
curve, saw seventy feet ahead, on a cul
vert bridge, three horses, but it being
too late to back or stop he was com
pelled to face the music, and the animals
were ground into pieces, the train pul
ling through. It was a dark night and
half-past ten. Mr. Jeffries says that as
western railroads have not yet found a
way of looking around a sharp curve in
the dark, farmers should be very careful
about their stock getting on the track.
There were thirteen cars in the train.
It may be added that in emergencies of
this kind it requires quick comprehen
sion to know what is best to do, and
then steady and wonderful nerve to face
the danger, take the responsibility and
risk the consequences. These are the
men who make heroes.

A letter from A. M. Jennings at
Fitzgerald, Ga., says that they arrived
there on Wednesday after leaving Co
lumbus, making close connections all
the way through. There has been a
great change in the colony since he left
there. He has changed his allotment to
40 acres. All the colonists that have
their land now will have a chance to put
in some crops for winter use, as they
plant their sweet and Irish potatoes in
August. Oats (the earliest) are ready
to cut; corn has commenced to tassel,
and they have been having all kinds of
garden truck" for some time. Mulber
ries are ripe, and blackberries beginning
to ripen. They have had it as hot as
92 and that but one day, along in the
80's is about what it is generally. It
has been what the natives call dry, but
Nebraska and Kansas people there don't
look on it that way. The Columbus and
St Edward colonists at Fitzgerald are
H. J. Hendryx of the vicinity of
Monroe was in the city Saturday. He
says that practically about eight miles
of the Great Eastern irrigating canal are
completed, there being only two gaps
between the Beaver and Oconee on the
Kennedy and on the Miller farm. There
are six of the large graders at work
turning over about a thousand yards a
day, besides which there are twenty-
five to thirty teams and scrapers. Mr.
Hendryx paints a glowing picture of the
country between Columbus and Genoa,
after irrigation shows what our soil can
really do under the most favorable cir
cumstances. Under irrigation, the
farms in the valley will be very much
smaller; there will be orchards of apples,
cherriee, plums and even peaches; there
will be abundance of strawberries, rasp
berries and other small fruit, besides
vegetables, all in such quantities as only
irrigation can produce. He has had
some experience with irrigation in a
comparatively small way and has raised
as high as 400 bushels to the acre of
potatoes; 1000 bushels to the acre of
onions and other things in proportion.
He thinks that'at least 45 bushels to the
acre of wheat can be raised. Alfalfa
fields form a considerable portion of the
picture he paints, and he would have
the business men of Columbus wake up
to what is going on, and forecast what
a town they may have here with all thin
rich prairie cut up into gardens, or
chards and fertile fields, and the valley
inhabited by ten times the number of
people as now, and producing thousands
upon thousands of dollars' worth of sur
plus commodities. If all were like
minded with Mr. Hendryx the ditch
would be a certainty in a very abort

May 11, at Battle Creek, Michigan,
Lores Clark" departed this life. He had
been ailing for a long time, vainly seek
ing health by a change of location and
of treatment. Mr. Clark was born in
Birkshire, V.. September 8, 1830, moved
afterwards with his parents to Wiscon
sin, in 1859 went to Colorado, and in
1S72 to Albion, this state, where be had
made his residence ever since. In the
early days of Boone county he practiced
law and dealt in real estate. In 1872 he
was married to Mrs. Elizabeth Rice of
this city. Twice he was elected repre
sentative of Boone county in 1874 and
in 187G. In 1S79 he accepted an ap
pointment in the revenue service. In
1884 he was a candidate for state treas
urer, and was a delegate from the Third
congressional district to the national
republican convention at Minneapolis in
1888. Mr. Clark has always taken a
lively interest m the business welfare of
his town, county and state, and they
will all feel the loss of an able, wide
awake citizen. "Three years ago," says
the Albion Argus. "Mr. Clark was strick
en with cancer of the stomach. His
funeral and burial was held Wednesday
afternoon at Battle Creek, Mich., the
condition of his body being such it was
thought best not to ship him back to
Albion, but sometime in the future, in
all probability, his remains will be laid
to rest in Rose Hill cemetery, where
loving hearts and hands can watch over
his last resting place."
Wm. Gerhold was in the city Mon
day. He is considerable of a historian,
likewise a politician in a general way.
He believes that the conflict between
the common people of all classes and all
lines of business, on the one hand, and
the gigantic syndicates, corporations
and trusts, on the other hand, must end
only in bloodshed, as the sources of po
litical power are tampered with in every
conceivable way to thwart the will of
the people. Mr. Gerhold was referring
Monday to a dismal prophecy by the
historian, Macauley, in regard to our
popular system of government, after the
fertile lands are pretty thickly settled
and the classes begin to clash against
each other at close range. Gerhold in
his boyhood helped drive cattle to mar
ket at Philadelphia and Boston, from
the Sciota valley. The farmer made
some money feeding his cattle at home;
the farmers along the route where the
droves stopped, made some money; the
dealer who purchased the cattle had a
profit, and it was straight business right
through. But now, he says, you go to
South Omaha with your cattle, and
stand humbly, hat in hand, before the
combined outfit, not able to do anything
except take what they are pleased to
give you they dictate the prices of the
cattle, hogs and sheep coming in, and of
the dressed meat going out, so that, with
the railroads and other corporations,
they are getting pretty much all the

specimens of alfalfa at the post office
yesterday that was at least fifteen inches
high. He has about two acres that is
that large and will do to cut for hay be
fore long. Mr. Bogner has sown a
bushel and 4 half of the seed again this

the latter sown piece of alfalfa furnish
as much feed next year as the one that
is growing so finely this year.
Central City Nonpareil: Eleven tramps
that were in the city Monday afternoon
and Tuesday forenoon bought twenty
nine gallons of beer, a gallon at a time,
or an average of more than two gallons

this that makes people refuse to furnish

Ulysses Dispatch: The cause of the
cave-in of ground on the Jacob Way
farm two miles north of Surprise, says
the Herald, still remains a mystery. In
talking with Everett Way, son of Jacob
Way, who is assisting his father in try
ing to discover the cause for this pecu
liar hole in the ground, he says that his
father and himself have gone down fif
teen feet, that the earth is still loose
and they can push a spade down out of
sight. The general opinion is that a
meteor fell at this spot and buried itself
in the ground. It must have been a
large one as the loose ground is four or
five feet in diameter, end at the known
depth of twenty feet no signs of the
meteoric stone appear. Mr. Way and
son are determined to continue their
efforts to discover if possible the cause
of this strange phenomenon. If it is a
meteoric stone that has produced this
hole, it must undoubtedly be a large
one, and no doubt will prove a valuable
