The funeral of C. A. Woosley was

The Black Stars of this city and the
Clear Creek nine played a game of base
ball at the Clear Creek mills Sunday,
resulting in favor of the home team by
a score of 17 to 8. After the game was
finished, Mr. Coxen, manager of the
mill, showed the players where his musk
melon patch was and the crowd made
short work of slot of delicious melons.
Albert Mason, son of W. -M. Mason,
and H. Lamb, son of George Lamb,
were in the city Monday, on their way
to Fremont, to attend the Normal
school. The young men are bright, am
bitious and strong, and are just the
kind of material out of which the model
American citizen is formed, and from
the number of which Uncle Samuel gets
his helpers in time of peace or war.
It is an exceedingly easy thing to
sit in the shade and make comments
and criticisms upon passers-by, upon
public officials, and everything and
everybody in general, but it occurs to
us that the doing of even a very small
portion of the world's actual work once
in a long while at least, would be of
more benefit all around. The well
known motto of the boss fisherman is
very applicable in such a case, of course
paraphrased to suit the circumstances
"Either fish, cut bait, or go ashore."
Generally, the public schools here
abouts fesajan the work of the school
year eaMonday. of this week. Many
of the ahildren in the city take up new
lines of study, which, if they could get
an outline of before entering upon the
particulars in the book work, would aid
them very much in their Btudy. Wil
man, one of the great writers on such
subjects, says that "to think is to con
dition." To think rightly is to get to
the root ideas of a subject, and from
these go upward and outward.
Col. J. R. Meagher, who has for a
quarter of a century been in the employ
of the Union Pacific railroad company
at this place, and for several years be
fore that in the west, has been super
seded by Charles E. Joy, of St. Paul,
Nebraska, who has been with the com
pany eight years. Mi Joy comes very
highly recommended ss a railroad man.
Mr. Meagher has been n faithful, hard
worker for his company, late and early
and through all sorts and lands of
trouble and vexation, and we hope will
soon find occupation more remunerative
than the position he has been occupying
for so meny years.
An extra freight on the Norfolk
branch of the Union Pacific struck a
buggy Monday morning about twenty
miles from this city, instantly killing
both horses, smashing the vehicle, injur
ing Mrs. Mary Lohaus, sixty years old,
she suffering two cuts on the face and
the fracture of the right clavicle. Joe
Schulea, nine years old, two scalp
wounds and frontal bone broken. Mrs.
Schulea, the boy's mother, was unhurt.
Dr. Bear of Norfolk was brought down
on the train and Dr. Evans of this city
telegraphed for and went up overland.
It seems as though there is no blame at
tached to the train men.
The rattle-snake seems, to be loiter
ing.aroand in Nebraska, not so numer
ous ss in former years, but enough to
call for looking out for him. The fol
lowing paragraph appears in last week's
Howalls Journal: "Last Sunday after
noon, while in the pasture east of town
after the family cow, Eddie Popelar was
bit on the foot by a rattle-snake. He
came to town as fast ss he could and
was taken to Dr. Buxick's office and
cared for. His foot and leg are badly
swollen and very painful at times, but
all danger is past and in a short time
he will have fully recovered from the
ef ects of the bate.
The Nebraska Farmer ventures the
opinion that winter wheat seediag in
this latitade should be done by the
middle, of September. It says farther:
There is only one method of seeding
which enn be recognised by the farmer

This is with the seed drilL Ia light,

The publisher of Thk Columbus
Journal, M. K. Turner, has been doing
service in Nebraska editorial harness
twenty-eight years. Platte county's
first paper has seen great changes in
that section of Nebraska, and, what is
important in connection with this men
tion, has had much to do in the develop
ing process. Ths Journal is not a
spasmodic worker not a blower hot and
a blower cold but pursues constantly
the even tenor of its way and gets there
in a satisfactory manner fifty-two times
in a year to the edification of a large and
appreciative family of readers. Printers
The Union Stock Yard Co. of Oma
ha is beginning to make arrangements
again for loaning money at a high rate
of interest, and also getting all the prof
it in eight, on the feeding of cattle and
hogs. So far as the ordinary fanner is
concerned there is no money for him in
feeding cattle unless he can get them at
what might be called a very low price,
and even then, the most level-headed
ones think there is more money in sell
ing the corn and hay, than in taking
risks in buying cattle, on credit, and at
high figures. The lesson of last
year to all who purchased is, Go slow.
Keep out of debt. Feed what you raise.
Care for your grain until you can get a
good fair price.

Taasiasargents shot five of their men
for dessrtioa, and they ware spies for

then cat their throats. That's the way
they do in this man's country.

from me and took the whole roof off.
Barley, I wish you were here to see

with a detail of carpenters to build a
bridge, out about a mile this side of
Manila, and close to the Spanish lines.
Well, we are back, having finished the
bridge. I tell you it is an artistic piece
of work, made principally out of bam
boo. It was constructed to run the
artillery over, which will be tonight
While we were at work the bullets would
fly over and whistle all around us. A
shell burst in a tree about 100 yards
from us and blowed the top off, pieces
going over us.
When we came home we went straight
down to the beach, within half a mile of
Manila, just to see if they would shoot
at us. We saw the Spanish tribunal,
hospitals, old forts, all in the hands of
the insurgents. We saw the old Span

We have nothing much to do today,

Dxar Fathkk and Mother: Your
letter and papers received several days
ago with much pleasure. I am glad in
deed to learn that you are both well, and
hope to be able to visit you soon. It
may require some time before the peace
negotiations are completed, and I am
able to obtain my discharge, but I will
attempt to accomplish this as soon as
possible. The present indications point
toan early abandonment of this camp
and I am of the opinion that the troops
will be ordered back to their forts.
The president is expected here tomor

cide the fate of the troops. Joseph
Hodel is quite ill and has been sent to
Bellevue hospital, New York Gty.
Hoping that yoa are both well, I am'

Dratk of J. G. Phillip.
From the Lincoln Journal of Septem
ber 2, we take the following paragraphs
concerning one known to many Journal
readers as an exemplary young man, a
devoted son to his widowed mother, and
a loyal brother:
John Gilmore Phillips did at his
home, 1645 M. at 4:30 a. m. yesterday, of
consumption. He had long been a
sufferer from the disease, but was able
to be up until about a month ago.
John G. Phillipps was one of the most
widely known young men in the city.
He had lived here practically all his life,
having been but one year of age when
the family moved here from Cadiz, O.,
in 1871. He attended the public schools
of the city and graduated from the high
school in the class of "87. During his
school life he carried the State Journal
for several years, but on graduation
from the high school secured a position
in the city ticket office of the B. fc M.
road, in which office he remained until
about six months ago. His long term
of service for the company met its re
ward in his appointment to the position
of assistant city passenger and ticket
agent, which he held when he gave up
Early last spring he started for the
south and spent five months in New
Mexico in the hope of bettering his
health which had begun to fail rapidly.
But he returned home feeling no better
for the trip, and in fact had less strength
left than when he started. From that
time on he became gradually but stead
ily worse until the end came this morn
ing. Not until yesterday did he refer
in any way to his illness, though he
seemed to know how serious it was when
he returned home. Before he left the
Burlington office all those who had
occasion to transact business with him
found him constantly cheerful and still
as careful in his attention to their needs
Mr. Phillips will not only be missed
in the office where his daily work was,
but the young people of the First Pres
byterian church will be without one who
has until lately been a necessary part of
their effectiveness. In the church itself
and in the young people's society he
held a prominent place and found the
greatest satisfaction in furthering the
ends of both organizations.
The funeral will be held from the
home Saturday afternoon at 4:30 o'clock,
with interment at Wyuka in the same
lot where deceased's father and sister
Lucy are buried. Relatives from out of
the city are expected to arrive by that
time and employes of the general offices
of the Burlington at Omaha will prob

After the ceremony, sumptuous dinner

the bride's mother.
Miss Zinnecker has lived with the
family in our city for several years and
has made many friends; through her act

has made herself invaluable. For some
time past Miss Zinnecker has lived al
most as a daughter with Mr. and Mrs.
Haight, who, with her many friends, will
be glad- to wish her many blessings.
The groom is worthy the bride he has
selected. He is nicely situated on a
