opened fire on the party, killing Hoy
instantly. One of the gang named Ben

surrounded in the mountains with little
prospect of escape. There is little doubt
that the murderers will be shot or lynch

The Jochx.vl had last week: "Adam
Lockner, for the past 30 years a resident
of Columbus, died on Monday, aged 79
years of age. He was father to John
Lockner formerly of Alexis, bnt now of
Lin wood and also father to Mrs. Vincent
Bock, now of Alexis. He also has a son
and daughter living at Omaha Augus
tus Lockner and Mrs. Robert TJhlig.
The funeral was held Tuesday at the

his way home to Linwood after the
funeral, passed through Bellwood."
Friday morning O. D. Butler's big
sorrel team took fright while near Way
..v. Hockenberger's and started to run
south. Mr. Butler, who was in the
wagon, jumped ont without injury. The
team disputed the right of way on the
railroad track with the TJ. P. switch
engine, and turned east, demolishing the
rear part of the wagon, throwing off the
box, and in the meantime driving Henry
Considine under a box car for safety.
They then ran north to the starting
place where they were stopped with the
front part of the wagon with a broken
tongue and stake. Tiie horses were cut
in a few places.
The Platte County Agricultural
Society, after a checkered existence of a
good many years, quietly goes out of
business and ceases to be. It has been
a burden to the stockholders for a long
time. Always ambitious to have as good
exhibits as any county in the state, for
its opportunities, it has been with more
or less pecuniary loss, nearly all the
time. While this is true, the exhibits
have been very valuable to the general,
landed interests of the county, and
these certainly owe a debt of gratitude
to the men who have stood at the rack
all these years and worked for the gen
eral welfare during storm and shine.
J. H. Whitney of the Soldiers' Home
was in the city Monday on his way to
Grand Island from a visit to Genoa. It

1S7L when he first fame to Columbus
and engaged in the carpenter business.
He says that the veterans have a very
pleasant time of it there; that, including
some 35 or 40 women, there are 293
inmates of the Home; that the health of
the inmates has been unusually good
this winter. He feels like congratulating
the old boys who have been afflicted with
disease in their declining years, in hav
ing such a favorable place to pass their
time, and have all their wants provided
for them. He speaks of John Ryan, Mr.

its pictorial side, including, as it does,
numerous illustrations from the current

The first question a man asks when
he sees a girl flirting is whether she is
respected or not; such bad practices
raise a doubt at once. This being the
case, no modest girl can afford to indulge
in the pastime. When the down is
brushed from the peach its beauty is so
marred it can never be restored, and
when a girl throws lightly aside that
sweet and modest reserve so becoming
to a maiden, and which so elevates and
enables her to command the respect of
all, she loses her best charm, and be
comes rather cheap and common, to use
no rash terms. Flirting may seem to the
giddy and thoughtless girl wonderfully
amusing, and she may get the idea that
she is fascinating, but it is a most de
grading thing, and should be frowned
upon by even- young lady who has
ambition to become a worthy and charm
ing young woman. Wymorean.
Our old friend C. W. Derbv was
recently sheriff of Butler county. He
was one of the very best officials that
county ever had. and naturally enough
all his friends were proud of the record
he made. There was only one thing
ever charged against him that we know
of and that was that he had been an ex
pensive official. The Bntler Connty
Republican says: "The investigation by
the fee committee discloses the fact that
he received $1,200 less than the law
allows $300 per year lees than the limit
of the law for the sheriff's salary. This
fact will be made public by this com
mittee if they make a report. They have
exercised every possible effort, searched
every record to mulct the ex-sheriff and
prove that the campaign cry of 'expen
sive official" was .true. It was false, but
no. mora, so than the necessity for the
services of this committee and its expert

Thesocalled Divine Healer Schrader
held forth in the opera house Friday
night last to a good-sized audience. He
is a rather small man, long hair and
whiskers, wears a cross in front; is not
much of a public speaker; spoke against
the eating of pork; against gum-chewing;
against too much eating; against
bad habits of all kinds; claimed that he
had fasted many times; that it could
readily be done, provided he was sup
plied with good, pure mountain water.
He said he was the head of a church
which had for their creed, the bible, jnst
as it is, without comment. After his
talk, and passing around among the
audience with his hat soliciting con
tributions, he asked those who were ail
ing to couie forward for blessing and
laying on of hands. Several went for
ward upon whom he placed his hands,
pressing their heads and chests, and
taking their handkerchiefs and folding
them and returning them. He dismissed
the audience with a benediction.

Henry Fritz yesterday received a
letter from his brother William who is
now at Seattle getting ready to go to
Alaska when navigation opens in the
spring. William is in a company of six
men who own 30 miles of the Yukon
river bed, and they will go in with a
steamer and steam gold dredge to be
used in extracting the gold in the sand
along the river bed. Miners working
with a pan where these claims are located
have taken ont from $5 to $20 a day, and
with a dredge handling hundreds of tons
daily it is expected that the yield of the
precious metal will be something im
mense. In the same letter Mr. Fritz
received the first news he has had for
months from his brother John, who is
wintering at Dawson City. John went
in early last year and has secured a
claim on one of the creeks near Dawson
with plenty of water, and from which he
has been taking dirt that yields 3G00 m
gold to the too. Those who are posted
say that John's claim is worth millions,
and he expects to return in a short time

A w Firm.
Charles S. Easton on Monday succeed
ed J. A. Ernst in the firm of Ernst &
Schwarz, and the business will now be
conducted at the old stand on Eleventh
and North street, by the new firm,
Messrs. Schwarz & Easton.
Louis Schwarz, of course, needs no
introduction to Journal readers, having
been a fixture quite a number of years
in Columbus business. He is a man who
has fixed habits of doing business, and
means to do just right with those who
deal at his establishment. He is well
known to everybody who buys hardware,
and is here to stay.
Charlie Easton has not been so long
in the city, but he is a younger, more
active man than Mr. Schwarz, and we
suppose will look more to outside mat
ters, where traveling is required. He is
a thorough-going, up-and-up business
man, and goes on the principle that bus
iness is mutual benefit.
It is a pleasure to transact business
with Mr. Easton, and he is thoroughly
well informed in all lines of trade in
which the firm is engaged.
The new firm will be glad to retain all
their old customers, and would be pleas
ed to welcome as many new ones as feel
inclined to come their way.

A few farmers began to cut corn
stalks last week, but Saturday morning
brought sleet and pellets, which damp
ened the stalks to such an extent that
other work was sought for the day.
At a stock and farm implement sale
last Thursday at Henry Lusche's farm,
5 miles northeast of Columbus, the fol
lowing prices, (we give the average),
were paid for the different kinds of
stock: 8 head of horses $45.2S; 9 cows
$3i35; 3 yearlings $16.25: 1 suckling
calf $S; 21 brood sows $11.30. The day
was cloudy and slightly chilly. A large
crowd had gathered by 10 o'clock. Be
fore the sale began a lunch, consisting
of ham and butter sandwich, strong hot
coffee and schnapps, and after all had
partaken, until they cared for no more,
there was enough of the substantial left
to feed a hundred people. Columbus
was represented in part by lawyers,
sheriff and ex-sheriff and the good na
tural Herman Oehlrich; the latter had
placed a well directed bid on a noble
beast in the shape of a work horse when

So much has been said in regard to
the past winter being an exceptional one
that I have been induced to refer to my
notes and I find that the mean tempera
ture of the three winter months of 1897
and 9S. were 2(134 and has not been
excelled by any winter in 10 years except
that of 1895 and 9C, the mean tempera
ture of which was 23.11 and I find that
the thermometer was not below zero
during that winter except on the 3d of
January 96. when it marked 8 below.
The March following was backward, the
temperature falling once below zero and
several inches of snow falling through
out the month.
