work of condensation was applied to
good purpose. All concerned in the

One of the nicest school exhibits
among the school work at the Trans
Mississippi Exposition was miniature
school houses built by the pupils. One
of Miss Florence Elliott's pupils of this
county, Willie Jones, had a log school

half high, was built with windows, and
complete in every way. There were fif
teen kinds of wood used, all grown in
the district, No. 21.
Elsewhere we publish the prelimi

or through the mails, and that at a lees
cost, the aforesaid corporations may
come to the wise conclusion that the

The Blair Pilot Baakaa mention of a
tse that will be waiatodwith consid
erable interest by tax-payera the state
over, because of the local touring the
decision of the court of final result may
have: "The case of Bruaton vs. Blair
township was called ia the county court
last Saturday. It asama aa though for
thirty years a road acroaa Mr. Brunton's
land had been in use but some two years
ago the bridgftwjsatou out and aa other
roads lead ia the same direction the
county or township had about decided
not to keep the road open aad Mr. Bran
ton had plowed ua the road. However
when the BrontoavBetty difficulty came
up over another road Blair township
officers decided to toafxthia road open
and put in the bridge that had washed
out. Mr. Bruaton fenced up the bridge
and sued for trespass. The evidence, as
near as we can get at it shows that for
thirty years thk had toea a road until it
had toea abaadoaed for five years. On
this'grouad the county court decided
agaiast Mr. Braatoa aad aaaassed up the
costs to him. We are iafonaad that Mr.
-Ann E. MeKrvett.of Central City,
Nett, has sued the exposition wiansge
ment for $95,000 for damages alleged to
have been sustained by being struck by
one of the big gates at the twentieth
street main entrance' to the grounds on
October 12. She alleges that the gate
was insecurely fastened and swung
against her, knocking her down, severely
injuring her about the head and neck
and breaking the bone of her right hip.
S. 8. Green went to Omaha Wednes
day to buy. about three cars of cattle.
Mr. Green is one of our most practical
farmers. He buys a bunch of cattle
just like a merchant buya a stock of
goods. If the people generally demand
a certain kind of meat he buya the kind
of cattle needed to produce that quality
of meat. He says the medium grade of
feeders are the kind most in demand,
and consequently the most profitable.
The very high or the very low grades do
not satisfy the popular demand like an
intermediate grade. Mr. Green's knowl
edge of what it takes to make good feed
ers is based on experience and not the
advice of others. Schuyler Quill.
Prof. Trimmer of Chicago, who is
giving a two weeks' course of instruction

We have concluded best not to de
lay the issue of The Joubnax a day, al
though, of course, going to press on the
afternoon of the day of election, we can
give nothing of results. We only know
how we think it ought to be. We are
certain of that. But there are so many
other voting sovereigns in this country
that also think they think they know,
that this device of the ballot-box, and
election boards was long ago put into
use in order to determine a general aver
age of the voters' will and record it, so
that things could be governed by the
will of the majority. We can say hero
and now, before the election is over and
the count made, that we believe the re
publican party have made great gains;
that Nebraska has, at least partially re
deemed herself, and this mainly through
the temporary (if not permanent) acces
sion of many anti-populist, anti-fusion,
It is a caution, how many people in
the city read The Joubnax. No sooner
was the issue of last week distributed
in the city mail Tuesday evening than
all the friends of soldiers away from
home were immediately interested in
discussing what to send in an "18x8x8
inch box, outside measurement" as
Christmas presents to the soldiers. The
next day almost all the boxes were
ready, and the packing process began.
It was found that a box of that size
wouldn't contain a thousandth part of
what the friends would like to send, but
they had to make the best of it, and buy
and pack with reference to the limited
space. Tne most ol it all will be tne
fact that all are remembered by the
home folks. One of the most touching
and popular old-time, sentimental songs
is "Do they miss me at home, do they
It is said that during one week of
this fall there was not a single death in
the city of Boston by diphtheria a very
remarkable fact, due, it is thought, to
the general use of antitoxine in the
treatment of the disease and to the city's
excellent hospital accommodations for
the isolation and treatment of conta
gious diseases, and to the daily medical
inspection of the pupils of the public
school. This Boston notion seems to be
taking root in other large cities of the
country, and so long as the germ origin
of diseases is held by the medical fra
ternity and the general public, the notion
will doubtless be put into practice.
Certainly this dread 'malady is so for
midable an enemy to the human race
that if there is anything in the line of
remedies that gives good promise of
successfully withstanding it, and keep
ing it from entering the homes of the
people the remedy should be applied.
In all cases of evil "prevention is better
The power of the press is coming to
be acknowledged more and more every
year, in all lines of work or business,
where the public mind is to be reached
and influenced through the printed word.
It is a medium of exchange of thought
not equaled by any other used by men,
and this fact is appreciated in this year
of grace, 1898, more than ever before.
Progress has received an impulse that is
sending us forward at a more rapid gait
than ever before, and all intelligent
people must throw away useless incum
brances, and otherwise put themselves
in trim for the race, or be left behind.
Make the best use otyour opportunities,
seek greater knowledge for the purpose
of a better life, for yourself as well as for
others; there is nothing truer than that
"no one liveth to himself alone." We are
destined to move, and to move forward,

Thomas Carlyle who declared that every

best you know, and the end will be

and safe to travel in.
Ebber Smith, a 10-year old lad of
thk city, had quite an experience some
days ago. He asked a farmer who was
driving southward for a ride to the ball
grounds, and after getting into the
wagon the man held him so that he
couldn't yell out, and then so he couldn't
get loose. When the boy found that
his efforts were unavailing to get away,
he changed his tactics, and asked the
man whether he would let go of him (aa
he was hurting him) if he would atop
trying to get away. He answered that
he would, and in a short time he jumped
out of the wagon and ran aa hard as he
could towards home, the man after him
The boy was losing distance fast, but
fortunately, the man's team began to
move away, when he quit the race, leav
ing the boy to go on his way. When he
got home be was overcome by his scare
and the race. Such is the unusual ex
perience as given by the lad. The name
of the man ia not known, but he amid to

A great confidence game was played
on Rev. Dudley of Beatrice last week.
A young man of good appearance, about
25 'years old, asked him to identify him
at the bank, that be might draw a check
for $25, drawn on the First National
bank of this city. He said he wished to
join Rev. Dudley's church and handed
him a letter purporting to be from the
Presbyterian church of Columbus, and
asked to have the letter read in church,
Sunday. After getting the money at the
bank, he went to a jeweler's with
a draft for $50, with Dudley's
endorsement forged on the same, on
which after purchasing a ring, he receiv
ed the balance in cash, then got a car
riage and horse from a livery barn and
has not been heard from since.
The Daily Journal of Superior says
it "sincerely regrets the announcement
made by E. Schostag of his intention to
move his cigar factory to Columbus,
Neb. During his residence of several
years in this city, Mr. Schostag has es

business associates. A fairer, squarer,
more straightforward business man was
never in this town. His word, whether
given on the quality of his goods or up
on private matters, could be banked up
on at a hundred cents on the dollar just
as surely as upon his check. The fac
tory which he started here was a small
affair at first, but it had grown to be a
large establishment, employing a dozen
or so employes constantly. Mr. Schos

E. G. Adell recently completed a
well on John Nelson's farm, near Swede
burg, going to a depth of 375 feet, pass
ing through a stratum of red ochre 200
feet thick, and getting a fine flow of
water in white sea sand. The water
rises to within eighty feet of the surface.
Mr. Adell gives it as his opinion that if
the ochre was properly milled it would
be equal to the article now on the mark
et He further says that his son, E.
G. Adell, made two wells on farms in
the vicinity of Valparaiso recently, one
125 feet deep from which the water
spouts up twelve feet above the surface,
and the other 140 feet from which the
water rises twenty-five feet above the
ground. It seems that an underground
channel has been tapped. It is possible
that a plentiful supply of artesian water
could be obtained at no great depth in
this part of the state. Wahoo Wasp.

aad iateresting letter, under date of
October 4 published in the Lincoln.
Joaraal of Nov. 7, in which is detailed
the action of the boys of the regiment
there, on the receipt of a telegram from.
Governor Holoomb, asking for an ex
pression from the men on the question
of being mastered out The boys got
together, without their officers, aad did
a little extra marching of their .own,
singing "Home, Sweet Home" with wond
rous feeling, waking the echoes, with
"There's no place like home." Then, a
little more cheerfully, "Hot Time," and
"We Are, We Are, We Are Nebraska
Boys," winding ap with an expression
almost to a man, that since all fighting
is over, they protest against doing garri
son duty when regulars can just aa well
be sent in their places. Private Theo
dore Larsen of Company K died at the
hospital, October 1 of aggravated ma
larial fever. He was buried by his com
pany at ElPaco, October 4. For the
past two years, he had made his home
at Wahoo, with his uncle, Rev. Risdahl.
His parents live on a farm at Strand,
Iowa. He joined- Company K at Lin
coln. Up to now his health had been
good. The boys are going to send bis
rifle and equipments to his parents in
Iowa, standing good for the amount to
the government themselves. The total
number, of men lost from the regiment
since leaving 'Frisco is nine, or about 1
percent Considering the service seen
the wonder is there have not been more
to mourn. It is a deplorable fact, how
ever, that all but one have died in hos
pital. DBILL FOB HEDAL.
The members of Major Mulford's
battalion, the Third, are being stimu
lated to greater efforts in drill by com
peting for a handsome gold medal.
Every other night the whole battalion
turns out to have a try for the medal.
Each company drills down in the manu
al of arms, after the fashion of a spell
ing match at a country school, until but
six in each company are left. The
twenty-four men then compete against
eaoh other for the championship of the
evening. He who first wins the medal
three times, becomes its proud possessor
for all time.
, At the present writing Private Isaac
Brock of company K seems to have a
lead pipe sinch on the prize, having
held it twice already. As a company, K
is pretty much ahead of the others, hav
ing held the medal five times out of a
possible seven, with B and F coming
along with a record of one to one.

Deab Folks: I have put off writing
for some time, thinking that we were
coming home before long, but I am
afraid we are not going to come home
for some time to come.
There is nothing to write about now.
It ia the same thing day after day.
We can hear nothing but home, home,
home, and homesick -boys 'long for and
talk of home and mother, and how they
would like to see home before they die.
I am in good health, and am taking
good care of myself.
We have only one boy sick in the hos
pital, James O'Callahan, Platte Center.
I will send home some money if I can
get a poatoffice order, but if I can't I
am afraid to send it any other way.
The weather is not so hot, but it is
close and dry. It does not affect me
much, but some of the boys can't stand
it at all.
I have had no letter from any one
since the one in answer to my Honolulu
letter, from yon. I told you to write at
least once every two weeks, and have
only had two letters since the one I got
Everything is business here now. All
the business houses are open and run

I was at a Philippine show last night
and enjoyed it very much. I saw some
of the beet tumbling I ever saw in my
life. It ia run by an American.
I can't hear any news only after it is
about a month old. We don't know
now whether peace is yet established.
We don't know whether we are going
home or going to stay here the remainder
of our term, and will not until we. are
landed on the boat
Well, I will close hoping you are all
well, and wishing I were with you and
at work once more
Chas. T. Miner.
P.S. Tell all my friends that I send
my best regards, and that I hold a warm
spot in my heart for all of them.
This is a rotten, old city. It is filthy
and dirty, and almost unbearable. Ob,
if we could just get out of here! It is
the nearest to hell that I have ever been,
as I know of:
'Well, I hope by the time this reaches
yon, we will be on our way home.
J " September 25.
Dear Folks: As. there will be no
mail ship leaving here before tomorrow,
I have not sent my letter.
I have now made up my mind folly,
that we are going to stay here till our
term is out, so you will not see us home
for about eighteen months.
About five regiments are going, and I
think Nebraska will be with them, to the
Island Hoilo, to take it away from some
Spanish troops that refused to surrender.
There are about 3,000 of them, but I
guess we will not have much trouble.
It may be we will be permitted to
come home, but I dont think so, for
they toll us our recruits are coming, and
that 5,000 more volunteers are coming
to re-enforce us, so I guess there is no
danger of us leaving.

The Senior lecture course this year
promises to be superior to any yet offered.
Much pains has been need to secure
attractions of high order. The success
of the course has already been assured,
but as the proceeds are to be applied to
a fund to purchase a piano for the new
high school, we cordially solicit from the
patrons and friends of the public schools
a liberal patronage. The entertainments
are as follows: Wm. Hawley Smith will
give one of his best "Readings"; S.
Wright Butler of Omaha will lecture on
"Life on the European Plan"; Herbert
A. Sprague will give "Rip Van Winkle
in Monologue." He is a peerless deli
neator of character, and a fine imper
sonator. The Western Star Concert Co.
will complete the course. The last
named company is unusually fine, giving,
beside a musical program, Readings by
Alfred Palmer, and Crayon Sketches by
Franklin Caveny. Season tickets may
yet be secured from members of the
All Eyes Tamed to Lincoln.
The Omaha exposition has closed and
all eyes are now turned toward Lincoln,
the capital city, where the legislature
will soon meet. The istallation of new
state officers, the election of a United
States senator, and other matters of
much importance will make Lincoln the
centre of state interests and every Ne
braskan will want to read the old, reliable-standby,
The State Journal, dur
ing the coming year. As a special in
ducement to secure new readers, The
Semi-Weekly Journal, printed every
Tuesday and Friday, will be mailed
from now until January 1, 1900, for $1.00.
This is a mighty long time for the
money and the sooner you send your
dollar the more papers you get. There
isn't any other paper in Nebraska that
gives so much for the money,. It is
twice as good as the old fashioned
weekly. Try it. Address, The State
