Wednesday last a travelling man

It is hardly worth while to caution
Platte county people against taking
large amounts of money with them
when they visit the Exposition. Henry
Stockton of Lincoln did that and near

of men, and some time later, when he
had nearly reached the point where he
was to leave the car, he felt in his hip
pocket for his wallet he found it was
gone, with the $925 that it oontained,-

Friday, at the Exposition the Wood
men of the 'World turned out in force,
although the rain made it mora or less
disagreeable. The exercises in -the .Au

speeches and the music. There was no

was over to the Insurgents' intrench

200 yards from the Spanish lines, and
the bullets whistled over our heads.
There are no more men hurt in a
battle between the Insurgents and
Spanish than there ia in Nebraska on a
Fourth of July. They are very poor
shots. One company of Uncle Sam's
boys could easily take the Insurgents
intrenchments, as they sit in the
trenches under bamboo shades and the

sit there and read, and smoke cigarettes,

thankful that we were on board the ship

It is stated that "the Arizona will wait

tion: "Police Edgar telle us of a dastardly
and cowardly attack which was-perpetrated
Saturday night upon two men
who were driving from Columbus- to
Ithaca, Saunders county, by John Varley
one of the Doyle boys and two other
young men whose names he could not
find out It seems that C. A. Beardsley,
a Colambua tombstone man had a Bohe
mian from near there taking him to
Ithaca where he was going to do some
business. TLey were making the drive
in the night while it was cooL When on
the grade of tbe Richland road west of
the Schuyler cemetery they were accost
ed by two men walking in the road who
halted them and tried to pick a fuss.
Beardsley and the other man whipped
up their horses and drove on to get out
of the way of the toughs. A little farth
er on they were again stopped by two
fellows in a buggy who had evidently
been with the others and who also tried
to start a row and intimidate them by
saying they believed they had stolen
something. In the controversy they
beat the Bohemian badly and he was
covered with blood. They finally got
away however, and drove into town and
notified Policeman Edgar who was on
the corner by the First National Bank.
He wanted them to wait and swear out
a complaint and have the fellows arrest
ed but they would not wait and went
on their way. Very soon after Varley
came in and told Mr. Edgar that as he
and the others were returning from a
dance which had been held out west of
here they found Beardsley and the Bo
hemian trying to Break into Mr. Zahner's
place just west of the cemetery and in
trying to stop them the fight occurred.
This was evidently a trumped up story
as the others told bow they had aroused
Mr. Zahner as they came along and ap
pealed for help. It is likely the boys
were under the influence of liquor and
stopped the men with the determination
to pick a row. It is too bad that Mr.
Beardsley and the man with him did not
wait to have them arrested and put be
hind the bars for awhile. Fellows like
that should be punished. While under
the influence of liquor they might have
The Quill tells the version of the men
a little differently and adds, as coming
from David Zehner: The Columbus
fellow (meaning Holz, as Beardsley was
in the wagon holding the team and car
ing for a young boy), came into the
house and refused to leave it or explain
why he was there, whereupon he (Zehner)
gave him a good pounding. The whole
affair, says the Quill, is as ridiculous as
it is disgraceful and the poor fellow
from Columbus was fearfully mistreated.
He wrapped his face in beefsteak and
pursued his journey badly scared and

The Wallace Circus which comes to
Columbus, Friday, Sept 23rd, is a show
of the highest class and clean in every
respect It represents -all that there is
of legitimate worth in the circus busi
ness. It is in charge of men who aspire
to elevate the tone and purify the at
mosphere of the. calling, and we.believe
the thousands who have attended the
performances during the past seasons
will certify they have succeeded. Not
only is the performance up to the high
est professional and artistic standard,
the menagerie large and varied, and the
trained animals of the best but there is
not in connection with the Wallace
show a single one of those discreditable
and demoralizing features which have
done so much to give the circus a bad
name, and to discourage the true friends
of that otherwise wholesome form of
amusement The managers of the
Wallace show keep, all their promises,
advertise nothing they do not expect to
give, and carefully divest their perform
ances of anything and everything calcul
ated to offend the most fastidious. We
are sure that the verdict of everybody
in attendance will be most favorable.
