Fred. Gottscbalk is one of the few who
can tell of the earliest history of our
county and town, and one of the very
few who have lived continuously in the
same place. He, with Jacob Lewis and
George Rausch, started out from Omaha
in April, 1859, to found a city. Passing
North Bend they reached the Loup and
marked the site of the future Columbus.
Hon. L N. Taylor, ' in his Centennial
pamphlet history of those times, says of
Our Columbus party passed this spot
a month later and pressed on to their
destination on the Loup. Of course,
Gottschalk and Lewis could point out
the spot for they had been there. The
others too would readily recognize it, for
the river had been described aa a clear
and pladd stream, deep but narrow and
abounding with fish. They halted at
noon on the enchanting shore and gazed
with delight at the great fish lying far
down in the quiet water. Wolfel, as boss
carpenter, was enthusiastic and could
scarcely wait 'till dinner was finished,
before commencing the Loup bridge and
thus sealing the destiny of the new city
against all rivals. Only Eummer was
somewhat incredulous about that thing
being a river, and he strayed away along
the bank. Having rounded one end of
the river, legend saith not which end,
suddenly he confronted the camp from
the opposite Dank, at which surprising
event the original explorers subsided and
the bridge builder withdrew his propo
sition; and what is now known as
"McAllister's Slough" was left alone in
its glory. Proceeding westward eight or
nine miles they came upon the veritable
Loup whose rushing tide and boiling
quicksand put to shame the pretensions
of McAllister's pond. Here they wisely
located, neither too far east nor too far
west as the whole sequel has proved, for
the true crossing of the river on the
permanent line of transportation over
On returning to Omaha, a town com
pany was formed with the following
members: Vincent Kummer, captain;
Charles Turner, surveyor; John Wolfel,
carpenter; Fred. Gottschalk, Jacob
Lewis, Jacob Outer, Carl Reinke, Henry
Lusche, Michael Smith, Adam Denkand
John Held, privates.
Mr. Gottschalk is identified with all
the hardships of pioneer life and now
lives on the old homestead adjdning the
dty on the north near St Francis
Academy. Mr. and Mrs. Gottschalk
have one son, Fred., jr., who lives about
one block west of his parents' home.
In the program sent out for the
State Teachers' association to be held in
Lincoln, December 26-29, we notice that
Columbus is wdl represented. In a
debate, open to all on "Resolved that the
Public Schools afford a Natural and
adequate preparation for Citizenship,"
Mrs. Sarah Brindley leads the negative
side. Superintendent Leavy is also ou
for a discussion of the question "How to
raise the standard of our schools." In
the school board section, Hon. J. H.
Galley talks on the subject, "School
board versus Truancy." The programs
throughout are very well selected, and
will no doubt be interesting to all.

to be baying for n large Arm in Chicago;
bargained for some eleven horses to be

505 Eleventh Street,-
Saturday evening lost John Behrens,
a farmer living in a northeasterly direc
tion from the city some fifteen miles,
came to the city with his son, a lad of
twelve years, to do some shopping.
Late coming to town, it was later than
his usual time for starting home, bnt
still only late dusk. The team took
fright when near the Monastery, tnrned
east at the four corners at the sheep
ranch, where they turned the wagon
over into the ditch on north side of tho
road, throwing out the driver and his
little son. The father was fatally hurt,
the boy escaping with only a few slight
bruises. The rear of running gears and
wason-box were left in the ditch, tho
team continuing east with the fore
wheels, and soon turned to the right,
crossing the roadside ditch and breaking
through the fence into Gottschalk's pas
ture, then taking a southeasterly course
until they struck the east line of fence
about a hundred rods north of Louis
Zinnecker's place, whore they broko off
about a dozen posts, killing ono horse,
which fell upon the other in such n
manner that the live horse conld not
extricate itself, and remained in that
position until daylight, when it was
found and rescued.
The boy came to the sheep ranch and
informed them of the runaway, telling
them he believed his father was killed.
He was immediately brought into the
office on a cot, and Dr. Evans summoned
in haste from his residence, the doctor
pronouncing the injuries fatal in a very
short time, but suggested he be taken to
the Sisters' hospital. A sled was got
ready with abundant bed of straw, the
cot placed thereon, but' death ensued
before the hospital was reachod. Tho
chest was crushed in, and it is probable
that some broken ribs may hnvo pene
trated a vital part.
We learn that Mr. Behrens lost his
wife by death some two years ago. How
many children have been so suddenly
deprived of their only parent we do not
know. They will have the heartfelt sym
p'atby of all their acquaintance in their
time of anguish.
High School Lectare Coarse.
The Western Stars, who gave the first
entertainment of the lecture course on
last Thursday evening, were fully up to
our expectations. Many words of praise
from those in attendance and tho appre
ciative manner in which every number of
the program was received and encored
by the audience are sufficient evidences
of the high character of the evening's
Each of the three remaining entertain
ments are also of high order. William
Hawley Smiths who will give the second
number of the course in January, needs
no introduction to the people of Colum
bus. S. Wright Butler of Omaha, who
might fittingly be called "the Silver
tongued," will be with us in February.
Herbert Sprague, the eminent lecturer
and impersonator, will give the closing
number in March.
We have now met the total cost of the
course, and have seventeen dollars to
apply on the piano fund. We most
heartily thank those who have given us
their support. We now wish to sell one
hundred tickets at one dollar each, for
the rest of the season. Every purchaser
would receive full-value for his money
and every dollar would be applied direct
ly to the piano fund. Tickets may be
had at Pollock's.

We left Columbus about two hours
lato as the train was delayed by snow
storms. Our progress was necessarily
slow owing to the drifted snow and we
reached North Platte about two hours
and thirty minutes late. Leaving this
point we encountered tho samo con
ditions farther westward and Cheyenne
was reached about three hours behind
time. Here we waited about one-half
hour for the Denver train, and shortly
after this snow-clad monster arrived we
departed westward. The climb to the
summit of the Rockies was laboriously
accomplished, owing to the slippery con
dition of the rails, but at length Ames
monument is passed and we are moving
swiftly down the western slope of the
mountains. The snow-clad peaks on
every hand is a very inspiring sight
with the sunlight glistening upon the
snow along their sides. At length Lar
amie ia reached and then we have a
comparatively level stretch of track for
several hundrod miles. But we continue
to lose time throughout the dsy and
night, and Focatelle is reached in the
early morning, five hours late. Here
the Oregon Short Line train is waiting
for us and those who are going north
change cars snd are ready to pursue
their journey. There is a heavy snow in
Idaho, but we manage to make schedule
time and arrive at Lima. Moat, ia time
