The David City Press says that the
big boys of the public school at Shelby
are enjoying a peculiar spit at their pro

as the stockings are long enough to con

week or two over the coming marriage
of Miss Phonnie Cushing to Mr. RA.
Clapp of Fairbury. Miss Cushing has

proofreader at the state capital The
wedding will be solemnized Wednesday
afternoon at 3 o'clock at the home of the
bride's parents, Rev. R. A. Clapp of
Fairbury, father of the groom, officiating.
The wedding will be attended by rel
atives only. Miss Cushing is one of the
best girls in the country and a favorite
wherever she goes because it is her
nature to be so. Mr. Clapp ia an attor
ney in Fairbury.
Publicity ia a pretty fair remedy for
many of the ills complained of by the
public, and it is a very satisfactory way
of circumventing schemes against the
common welfare.
A stamp to be used in all countries
in the postal union is one of the things
desired. Such a stamp would be a very
great convenience in sending postage for
answers to letters, or in remitting small
gums of money from one country to an
other. The Schuyler Herald says that in a
social chess tournament between Court
Reporter Ed Mockett and C. F. Coch
ran, a life insurance agent, twenty games
were played, Mockett securing twelve,
Cochran four; there were three draw
games, and one unfinished.
The Madison Chronicle says that
the latest fad in strawberry culture is to
get a barrel, bore it full of holes, fill it
with rich soil and in each hole place a
strawberry plant. When the plants are
in full bloom the "strawberry barrel" is
quite a curiosity and an ornament for
any yard.
There ia only one way to advertise,
aays the Fremont Herald, and that is to
hammer yonr name, your location and
your business so constantly, so persist
ently and so thoroughly into the heads
of the people that if they walk in their
sleep they will involuntarily tnrn their
steps toward you store.
Gottleib Buettner was using a steel
harrow in a field near Madison, during a
thunder storm, when lightning struck
the harrow, ran down the steel on the
harness and killed the four horses, also
knocking the young man senseless. He
was restored and seems none the worse
for the accident, says the Norfolk News.
Miss Eulalia Rickly very pleasantly

afternoon. The ladies brought their

and Misses Phonnie Cushing, Grace and

ing Rev. R. E. L. Hayes as pastor of the
Presbyterian church of Columbus will be
held next Sabbath morning, the 30th, at
11 o'clock. The committeo appointed by
Presbytery to conduct the services are:
Rev. Dr. Harsha of the Omaha Theolog
ical seminary, Rev. R. M. L. Braden of
the Omaha Presbytery, and Dr. Laird of
Schuyler. These services will be pub
lic and all are invited to attend.
The other day we heard one end of
a conversation, or rather we judged there
was only one end to the conversation.
Tho voice was that of a young boy and
he did not leave any pauses, not even
commaB in his talk. Here it is: "Now
don't sling 'em so high I told you not
to sling so high Don't get gay Not so
high' I said you're a daisy ball player
I don't play that way See where they
go to There let 'er go," etc., and so on.
The Genoa Populist says: thatE. V.

for, he promises to give Genoa people a
chance; that Leo Borowiak is at Omaha

rey and Bertha Jones made a flying trip
to Columbus; that Mrs. P. F. Sprecher
of Norfolk is visiting her sister, Mrs. C.

The members of the American Swiss
band of Duncan and vicinity, feeling
under obligations to the citizens of Co
lumbuB for the very liberal patronage
given them at their dance, have decided
to come down to Columbus and serenade
the town, and have set Thursday even
ing as the time. The band has been
under the instruction of Prof. McFann
for about a year, and has done good
work. Be sure to hear them, and give
them a hearty welcome.
Mrs. L. Gerrard entertained the
Literary department of the Woman's
club last Tuesday afternoon. The meet
ing was the last before the summer va
cation, and Mrs. Geitzen was elected
president for the ensuing year. Mrs.
Gerrard is known as a delightful hostess
and on this occasion gave the ladies an
extra surprise. Her refreshments con
sisted of the preparation of several dish
es as shown by Mrs. McMurphy during
the cooking lectures recently held by
tho Woman's club.
Fly time is fully at hand, and
screens at doors and windows are being
placed as the good man of tho house
finds time to look after them. We see it
stated that the butchers and dairymen
of Switzerland claim the oil of bay
rubbed on their shelves and about the
walls rid their stalls and dairies of flies;
that it is also used in Paris to protect
chandeliers and picture frames from
specking. The flies over there may not
be so persistent as ours, but it may be
well enough to try the remedy, which
can be procured of any druggist
David E. Williams of Columbus, O.,
arrived in the city Wednesday and on
Friday afternoon with his mother (who
had been visiting with her son, Sup't
Williams the past three months) started
for home again. Mr. Williams is n man
of prominence in Ohio's capital city,
having been city auditor and clerk of
the sinking fund commissioners for elev
en years, disbursing hundreds of thou
sands of dollars. When he turned over
to his successor 81,84259.41 in bonds
and cash, he felt a great load gone from
him. The constant strain of care for
such large amounts is terribly wearing.
Mrs. W. A. McAllister and Mrs. C.
J. Garlow entertained the ladies musical
and Cecilian club, with all the former
members, Monday evening, at the home
of Mrs. McAllister. It was an inter
esting crowd of ladies that met to have
a good time together as musicians.
Nearly fifty were present. Ah impromp
tu program was called for, which was
insisted on; Miss Florence Gleason was
carried to the piano and she played one
selection and was loudly encored and
kindly responded. Miss Lulu Schroeder
was pressed into service and played a
waltz composed by herself which she has
named "The Cecilian Waltz." Miss
Schroeder has talent and if she should
study in this line would make a success.
Refreshments were served and all re
turned home with the feeling that such
pleaaant occasions should cons oCUmt.

to the death of Edward Clark.
Whereas, In view of the loss this Un
ion has sustained by the death of
brother Edward Clark, and a still heav
ier loss to those who are nearest and
dearest to him, therefore be it
Resolved, That it is but a just tribute
to the memory of the departed to say
that in regretting his removal from our
midst, we mourn for one who was in
every way worthy of our respect and
Resolved, That we sincerely condole
with the family of the deceased on the
dispensation with which it has pleased
Divine Providence to afflict them, and
commend them for consolation to Him
who orders all things for the best and
whose chastisements are meant in mercy.
Resolved, That this heartfelt testimo
nial of our sympathy and sorrow be
forwarded to the mother of our deceased
brother, also one to the Official Journal,
and to be spread on the books of this
Union. W. B. Allen,

The concert last Wednesday even
ing was splendid, but owing to the
threatening storm, not many people
ventured out Nearly every number was
encored and the audience were well
pleased with the program. Mr. Wheeler
and Miss Parthenia Bowman, both of
Omaha, rendered several selections with
which the audience was delighted. Mr.
Wheeler-has a beautiful tenor voice of a
rare quality. Miss Bowman is claimed
as a Columbus girl, having lived here
until a few years ago. She has a splen

a high place as a vocalist
A house full gathered at the opera
house Sunday for Union Memorial ser
vices. Elder Hudson presided, Rev.
Mickel pronounced the invocation, Rev.
Hayes read the scripture lesson, Rev.
Rogers offered prayer and Rev. Dr. Pulis
preached the sermon from the text "1
have fought a good fight," refreshing
the memories .of his hearers as to the
war of the rebellion its motive, its in
fluence upon the integrity of the con
stitution and the domain. It was
listened to very attentively and well ap
preciated by the large audience. The
musical numbers were Doxology; On
ward Christian Soldiers; America; Give
Me the Wings of Faith, the Union choir
being composed of Mesdames Evans,
Warren, Garlow, Chambers, Mickel;
Misses Bertha Zinnecker and Martha
Turner, and Messrs. Garlow, von Ber
gen, Schroeder, Rorer and Lay. Rev. de
Geller pronounced the benediction, and
doubtless every heart was glad that on
the quiet Sabbath morn this was a land
of peace instead of war, and that so
many of the brave boys are yet spared.
On last Tuesday Captain J. H. Mac
Donald and Mrs. MacDonold, and Lieu
tenant Baldwin of the Volunteers of
America came into the oity, and began
tho work of organizing permanent quar
ters here. They rented a building, pro
cured lights, paying for a month in
advance 814, advertising that on Satur
day evening, May 22, they would com
mence gospel meetings the third door
east of the State Bank. These folks
represent the organization perfected
under Ballington Booth and on purely
gospel and American principles, as to
religions work, and as to business meth
ods. It would seem that the Salvation
Army officers (which are under the di
rection of Wm. Booth), must have heard
of the movement of the Volunteers, as
on Saturday three of their officers, man
and two girls, came into the city and in
the forenoon began out-door meetings
on Thirteenth street, so that Columbus
now has representative officers of the
two rival organizations. Already both
of them have held a number of meetings,
and still the work goes along. It is to
be hoped that Columbus will be greatly
benefited by both organizations, and
that men will be led into better ways of
life. There is room and welcome for all
earnest, devoted people, trying to make
the world better. A good life, a steady
life, useful to self and others, is the
proper aim of mortals, and what helps
toward that is of the true gospel, what
hinders that, is man's enemy and to be
The schemers are beginning to
scheme for the places to be filled this
fall, and the air is full of "information"
of various degrees of certainty and un
certainty. Just so soon as there seems
something tangible and reliable, we
purpose giving it to the readers of The
Journal. It seems pretty clearly fore
shadowed that there will be three
tickets in the field in Platte county, not
counting the prohibitionists. It looks
now as though the so-called free silver
forces will not be able to unite in one
"homogeneous mass the heterogenous
elements" of democratic and populistic
tendencies. The bitter feeling between
the two wings of the democratic party
is sure to make itself felt in the contest,
but to what extent it may go is not yet
apparent. Of course, every democratic
candidate would like to have all the
votes of his own party and those of the
populists, too, and the same holds of
the populists with reference to their
last year's allies, but last year's situa
tion is not this by a long ways, and the
glamor of a national campaign is not
absorbing the attention, as it did then.
We are not aware of a single county
office-holder who does not wish to be re
elected and of course are pulling wires,
less or more with that end in view.
Some ex-officials are also desirous of
being put back by the people into their
old positions, and these facts will have
their due weight in the expressed polit
ical sentiments as to combinations and
"trades." The campaign promises to be
a lively one, at least, whatever may be
the outcome. The Journal would like
to see each citizen express his exact
view of matters in his political action,
and not allow some one or more candi
dates make up a ticket to suit their con
venience. It is a very common habit,
and not confined to any one party for
one or more of the candidates to not
only dictate the nomination of weak
men on their own ticket, but at the same
time secure the nomination of stronger
men on a rival ticket, and thus form a
practical combination that is most de
moralizing in every way. We think this
is the design on the part of several that
might be mentioned. During this month
of May while land is being plowed for
corn, and the seed is being put into the
soil as rapidly as possible, it is well
enough to consider about the other
plowing that is going on, and the plant
ing that is being done. Consider what
has been and what may be. The com

There is a great deal of damaged corn
going into market at this time, some of
which would not pay the freight to the
center markets, and the dealers in Co
lumbus are working hard, in the interest
of farmers, hunting every nook and cor
ner of the state, and among feeders, to
dispose of the rejected corn, for all of
which the farmers ought to feel very
grateful, when it is learned that the
dealers charge only the fractional part
of a cent for their work.
The Largest Poaltry Farm.
We believe that there is no legitimate
business that pays a larger per cent on
the investment than that of raising
chickens, providing even ordinary good
sense and judgment are used. We know
that many of our readers are more or
less interested in the subject, and for
their benefit we reproduce the following
pen picture from a recent number of the
Prairie Farmer:
What is said to be the largest poultry
farm in the world belongs to Mr. Isaac
Wilbur, of Little Crompton, Rhode
Island. Mr. Wilbur ships about 150,000
dozen eggs a year. He keeps his fowls
on the colony plan, housing about forty
in a house eight feet by ten feet or
eight feet by twelve feet in size, these
houses being about 150 feet apart, set
out in long rows over the gently sloping
fields. He has 100 of these honses scat
tered over three or four fields. The
food is loaded into a low wagon, which
is driven about to each house in turn,
the attendant feeding as he goes. At
the afternoon feeding, the eggs are col
lected. The fowls are fed twice a day.
The morning meal is mash of cooked
vegetables and mixed meals. The after
noon feed is whole corn the year round.

Suffering Humanity !
To all Sufferers: I write this for
the benefit similar sufferers may derive
from it, unsolicited and ont of pure
sympathy to those poor mortals who
may be afflicted with that dread disease
' In September of 1887 the disease
known by the medical fraternity as
lupuseretnemasto8us first made its ap
pearance on my face and soon spread
across the nose and over a greater part
of the face, causing unsightly sores.
After nearly ten years of constant doc
toring with many noted physicians and
deriving temporary benefit at times, my
system at last reached a stage of com
plete collapse, and I was flat on my back
with no ray of hope. At this stage I
was recommended to try Dr. Lieber of
Omaha; after an examination he said he
could euro me. As a drowning person
grasping at a straw I entered his private
hospital, and in a short space of timo I
was able to leave the hospital a well
woman. My face is now clear and shows
but little sign of the dread disease.
While in the hospital there were also
removed from my body seven cancers,
and that without tho use of the knife.
The medical fraternity scoff at the idea
of cancers being removed without the
knife. But I am a living proof that it
can be and is done by Dr. Lieber. To
all those poor mortals who have given
up the battle against this dread disease,
I say don't despair, but consult with the
doctor. I make this 'statement out of
pure sympathy for similar sufferers, and
will be glad to see or answer any in
quiries in regard to my case.
