Lincoln Journal. It seems that when the Omaha Printing Co. concluded, after a years business, that they no longer desired W. Saunders as manager of that branch of their concern, he concluded that he might as well take the populist papers with him, which, we understand, he has done, and now the printing of their pat ents is done at the Reese establishment in Omaha, with, we suppose, W.

At a meeting of the board of direc tors of the National Educational associ ation held in Washington, D. C, July 7, the action of the department of superin tendence was approved in making an official change in spelling, using a simpli fied form for many words, such as pro gram (programme); tho (though); altho (although;) thoro (thorough) thruout (throughout); catalog (catalogue) etc. This common sense system of spelling may come sometime as a great relief to many a person, but it has been a long time in getting even this far. A Chinaman bearing the euphoni ous title of Hu Jo was taken from the train Sunday and removed to St. Mary's hospital. He was removing a bandage from an old wound on his leg when in some manner he opened an artery and was in a fair way to bleed to death when medical assistance reached him here. He ownB and operates a laundry in New York City, and m company with another Celestial were enroute to Hong Kong, expecting to return to this country next spring. They were able to resume their journey Sunday morning. Wednesday last J. M. Curtis, being at Council Bluffs and with old railroad acquaintances who were going to the Wild West show at Red Oak, Iowa, he went down with them, and while there had a visit with George Turner, of which he has many interesting incidents. One of these was that on an amusing occur rence, Curtis was convulsed with laugh ter and shook the air around him so lively that the band boys were all look ing anxiously towards him, not knowing exactly what might happen, but George quieted their fears by saying: "Let him alone, he'll come out of it all right." The former acquaintances of Fred and Will Hess who were boys on their father's farm south of the river, will be interested to know of their whereabouts. Will graduated from a medical college in St Louis in April and later joined the army as a surgeon from Salt Lake City, from which place he was sent to the front. Fred Hess is in the employ of the U. P. company in Salt Lake City and is to be married Sept. 7th to Miss Brownie Shaw of that place. The couple will be in Columbus the 9th on their way to Chicago, visiting the family of Mr. Hess' uncle, Lewis Jones. Dr. Evans was hurriedly summoned to Albion at an early hour Snnday morning to attend a young man named Albert Parrott who had been shot in the head with a charge of bird shot He and some companions were in a melon patch belonging to a man named Leavi sey living near town. He frightened the boys out of the patch and then fired in an opposite direction to what he had supposed they had taken, and the charge struck young Parrott full in the fore head. All connected with the sad affair are respectable people and it is gener ally regarded as an accident, pure and simple. The lad was still alive Sunday evening, but there was thought to be but little chance for him. He is about 20 years of age.

Henry Mcfarland, a Washington journalist, contributes a character sketch of William R. Day, the Secretary of State, which is of special interest at this time because of Judge Day's appointment as leading member of the American peace commission.

Farm, 3 miles east of Columbus; 369 I acres,' 200 acres under cultivation. En- J quire at Galley's store. tf ii, The Old Settler of Platte Coanty (Set To gether Agaia. Saturday last, a goodly number of the pioneers and old settlers ate dinner and supper at Maennerchor hall, and enjoyed themselves in meeting and greeting and conversing with old friends and neigh bors, the only regret- being that there were not more of them present. The hall had been appropriately deco rated for the' occasion with the national colors,- an ox-yoke being a conspicuous reminder of those early days. At 2 o'clock John Tannahill, president, called to order, and, after invocation by Rev. Goodale, the speaking exer cises began with a welcome by Mayor E. D. Fitzpatrick, to which he added personal reminiscences. Shortly after the War of the Rebellion, a great fever broke out in the east, and he was among the first to catch it it was the western fever. There were different phases of it, Kansas, California, etc., but his was the Nebraska fever, and after he caught it be prepared himself for farm ing by subscribing for magaaines, farm journals, etc. He came to Columbus in '71 and among the first things he did to prepare himself for.farming the prairie homestead was to buy a team of horses for 3450. One day he was in Columbus, and happened to meet E. J. Baker, who convinced him that he ought to have a corn-planter (he hadn't yet broke any sod) at $65. In about a year, he got the California fever, but stayed there only a few months. He came back here, and all he had left was four patches on his pants. He worked at whatever he could find to do, saved his money as best he could, investing it iu business, as business grew. H. T. Spoerry began by speaking of the old country and his trip to Nebras ka. He referred in a sarcastic way to good old times of 1857-,8,of the "wild cat banks," etc. He drew a comparison between the east and the west in those days; in the east a man could scarcely get employment, working for board only, and in the west everybody was busy and wages good. At Col. John Rickly's, where he first worked, he got $40 a month. He took up a homestead on Stearns prairie, where the settlement was so sparse that the school district was fourteen miles long and seven miles wide. He was elected school director, and notwithstanding considerable oppo sition, school finally began in a dug-out, with Miss Crabtree as teacher. One of the chief arguments in opposition was by a man who held to the notion that as they had had no school for seven years, they could certainly live a while longer without. Mr. Spoerry alluded to pres ent times in that locality, and said that there is now no vacant land, the farmers are all doing well; there are creameries, separators, cheese factories, and all modern appliances for doing work. There are perhaps no people in all that country but what know that the farmer needs education as much as any class of people. H. J. Hudson started in his remarks by referring to the classification that had been made, of pioneers, those who came here before 1867, and old settlers, those here before 1880. His wife and he were Londoners, and scarcely knew be fore they came to this country what a blade of grass was. At St Louis he saw some darkies eating a musk melon, the first he had ever seen, and noticed them scraping the seeds out A greeny hardly ever learns everything in one lesson, and the first melon he bought to eat he prepared his feast by scraping out the whole inside. Mr. Hudson en tered heartily into the spirit of the occasion, and was perceptibly affected when he touched upon the intimate re lations of the pioneers, in those times when the country was totally different from now; the day of Indians and Pil grims. Who of us then expected to live to see the country we now have in Ne braska? As great a transformation, al most, as could be imagined. We aimed to get along pleasantly and happily with oar neighbors, and all helped in times of trouble. He closed with a hearty good word for the Nebraska soldier boys who have gone to battle for their coun try, and said that wherever our flag had been planted it should stay right there to help establish for the people, a gov ernment by the people. "I'm very glad," said he, "that I've lived to see this time." President Tannahill introduced Pau line Elias as the daughter of a soldier who had helped make it possible to settle Nebraska. She recited a description of a prairie fire, the thrilling incidents of which, the sight of bellowing deer, hissing snakes, burning cabins, etc., were followed with intense interest by the audience, and so well pleased were they that they insist ed on her speaking again. The little lady kindly responded with "The Wreck of the Hesperus." J. E. North said that be did not ex pect to be called upon ' to make any remarks until he came into the room. If he had, he might have been able to make a more connected talk, but if he could succeed in saying something of interest to the younger generation to make them better contented in life, he would be satisfied. He came to Nebras ka in 1854, a young boy, living first at Omaha. He came here in '58 and was married in 1859, they being the second couple married in Platte county after its organization. He broke up 40 acres, planted sod corn and buckwheat; threshed the buckwheat by laying it on hard ground and tramping it out with oxen; the wind did the cleaning and it was ground without bolting. We eat our cakes without butter. We didn't have any bntter because we didn't have any cows. In 1859 trouble began with the In dians, the settlers gathering at Fremont, and the soldiers following the Indians to what is now known as Battle Creek. Our nearest post-office used to be Oma ha. Every one that went down from here was expected to bring back the mail. He knew every man, woman and child living between Columbus and Omaha. The last great blizzardf that some of the younger settlers remember, was a fair sample of what was not an uncom mon occurrence in 'those times. Once when he was at Omaha, and had left a young man at home to do the chores, when he returned he found that during the storm that had deposited two feet of snow, the man had left, and Mrs. North had fed the cattle through a hole in the straw roof of the barn, and had succeeded in keeping the cattle alive; and had chopped her own wood for fuel. He closed by saying that in his busi ness of selling land, and as surveyor, he had helped a good many men locate homes in Platte and adjoining counties and had always felt an interest in their welfare. He knew that the attachments of those who had lived and.worked to gether, bearing the same burdens, was very strong, and he was glad to be with them. Rev. Goodale said that in the build ing of a community, as of a- house, it was all important that there be a good foundation, laid by the square and the plummet No young man or woman in such times as these can appreciate what a task it was to lay the foundations of the now prosperous state, of ' Nebraska. He referred to the labors of Rev. Father Ryan, a pioneer Catholic priest well known to the old settlers of Nebraska, as a noble man in many respects, and closed by saying that- we are all one family of Almighty God, trying to gath er strength to go forward in the line of duty. Mr. Spoerry said that in the earlier days in the country no one asked an other's religion, but only can I help you? There is too much denominationalism and not enough Christianity. Guy C. Barnum said he first came to Nebraska in 1845. He broke prairie near Omaha. In 1860 he came to Platte county. He made pleasing allusions to the Gerrards, the 'Norths and others, but didn't seem to remember bo kindly the fact, as he alleges, that J. Sterling Morton was elected governor, and him self state auditor, but counted out and stated that the government of the state had been begun in fraud and continued in fraud until a populist governor was elected. He spoke of his early experi ence in jumping the town site of Areola, and said that he had been mayor of that place ever since. He referred to his more recent experience in insane asylums, and said: "I want to say to you that I have never been insane. If I am insane. I was born so, and thank God." John Browner, a pioneer sheriff of Platte county, was asked to speak, but declined, saying that his voice could not be heard across the room. This was the first time in two years that he had been iu the city, although he lives but two miles out W. A. McAllister referred to the in-cident-when Mr. Hudson was justice of the peace and Mr. Browner sheriff, and a company of men overpowered both of them and took a murderer out of the hands of the law officers and hanged him on a tree close by. To the time when it took them 3 days to go to mill, 2, and sometimes 3, to get their grist ground, and 3 to return. Every time goods were wanted, it meant a drive with oxen to Omaha. He then gave an account of the only Indian war ho was ever in, an In dian killed, indemnity demanded, a pony given and pipe of peace, in the meantime danger and trouble to all the neighborhood. Mc. was then 13, and with his brother Steve, they took upon themselves the defense of mother and sister, (Mrs. Hensley) while the father was out with the other men. The society then elected the following officers: John Tannahill, president; John Walker, vice president; C. A. Brind ley, Bec'y.; W. W. Mannington, treasurer. Supper was enjoyed by those who brought their baskets, and the evening was spent pleasantly in visiting until the speaking began. W. A. McAllister gave a reminiscence of some of the Indian wars with the pioneers, telling particularly about tne time Johnson, son of Mrs. Clother, was killed and of the attempted massacre of Mrs. Pat. Murray and others. W. N. HenBley compared the pioneer life in advantages to those of the east. He thought it took more courage to move your family, to the frontier coun tries than to go to war. Said The Jour nal of those days was worthy in publi cation of any eastern town of much larger size. W. B. Dale was called on for a speech but excused himself by saying he bad been accustomed the past three years to write down all his thoughts to be print ed in cold type, and he could not speak in public as in former years. C. A. Brindley told of the different meetings held since the first in the pio neer days, giving a very interesting ac count. The stories told by the pioneers would make brilliant reading for many generations. He said tho next meeting would perhaps be held in the northern part of the county. Among the old settlers present, we could get the names of the following: Rev. and Mrs. Goodale, Mrs. M. Erb, Mrs. Jacob Ernst, sr., Mrs. Peter Meyer, John Browner, Jonas Hedman, Mrs. Jane North, Mrs. A. E. Brindley, Mr. and Mrs. H. J. Hudson, Guy C.

We hear that a party from the east is here looking after a tract of land that seems to contain dirt of a high order. For some time this dirt has been used for cleaning silverware in fact is a splendid polish for most any kind of goods. It now pans out that a test of the dirt shows it to contain properties of a high order. A sample of 300 pounds was sent east Tuesday where it will again be tested as earth paint. The first batch sent proved to be all right for paint purposes and the factory now desires to test it in large quantities hence the quantity sent. We did not learn on whose laud the stuff is found but understand it is on Plum Creek. Fullerton Post. Keal Estate Traarer.
