John Elliott, in the seventy-seventh year of his age. John Elliott was born October 14. 1823, in Cumberland county, Pennsylvania, and during his childhood and younger manhood lived with his parents on a farm. He enlisted in the Mounted Rifle regiment, when yet young, going from Carlisle, Pennsylvania, into active service July 10, 1846. He had many interesting expe riences in the three years of service, and was promoted to be second sergeant of his company. A parchment certificate of honorable mention signed by James K. Polk, president, and Wm. L. Marcy, secretary of war, August, lSi7, was one of the souvenirs greatly prized by him. He served under General Taylor at Monterey, and under General Scott on the Vera Cruz line and in the taking of the City of Mexico, fighting in the battles of Contrares, Cherubusco, Molena del Rey and Chapultepec, receiving honors for distinguished services in the first-named engagement. After returning from the war Mr. Elliott was a merchant at Carlisle, Penn sylvania, until in 1376, when he came to Platte county, settling on his farm on Shell creek. In about 1S83, he came to Columbus, where he has ever since resi ded. For seven years he was street commissioner, and was bailiff of the District court many years, serving in that capacity at the term before his last sickness, which began December 27, with a stroke of paralysis, since which he had been con fined to his bed, suffering other strokes, and finally departed this life Monday morning at 2:40. He was one of the very first members of the order of Knights of Pythias in the United States, and was an ardent knight at all times. Mr. Elliott was married November 1, 1849, to Mary Jane Smiley, who survives him, with their five children: Joseph of Salt Lake City, Utah; Mrs. Charles Gil Ion, Neosho, Missouri; Hanson S., of Columbus and Mrs. E. H. Andrews of Lead ville, Colorado. The grandchildren are all now here except Miss Florence Elliott and James E. Gillon.

After getting her diplomas, she expects to see Paris before her return to this country. Miss Rasmussen's many friends here, where she formerly resided, will wish her a pleasant time abroad and a safe return. James Cady of Beatrice, an old time, boy acquaintance of Thk Joutcax. family dropped in on us for a few min utes the other day, and during that brief time recalled many incidents of the 1850 and 1860 decades at Cadiz, Ohio. As a boy of ten years, he was both a poet and an artist, of great re nown among his fellows, added to which, he was bidextrous. with his hands in any shape, whether in play, work or battle, and on sudden emergencies could do double duty, and double-discount oppo nents. The reception given by the Woman's club Thursday afternoon at the resi dence of L. Gerrard was attended by over one hundred people, members and friends of the club.

The dining room was decorated with the club colors, green and pink. Large rose bowls of pink carnations were on the tables and mantles. The refresh ments were served in the dining room by several young ladies. The ladies are very proud of the work their different departments are accomphehing, aad are anxious to strengthea the club by more interest from outsiders, which these annual reeeptaoaa aadoabtedly will do. Tk properties By Tharsday evening. January IS, at the latest, it is aeeaasary we should have the fund in hand to pay the contractor for the monument, and we urgently request those who have subscribed to the fund to pay ap before that time. " Respectfully. J. H. GT.T,TT. Chairman Monument Committee, i i There is talk, as spring approaches, ' of the improvement of the park in the part of that city. It ia a good location, the trmaa in mipm mm mm th sod mast be good. It isnt far from a i water-main, aad if we remember rightly, one of the big arguments for extending the mains ia that direction was the fact that the park should be improved, and why not aow? The extension one block and the beautifying that park (do you know the name of it), should be a labor of love for the opening of spring. J. M. Hili of Virginia, Gage county, was in the rity Saturday on his way home from attending the funeral of his mother, Mary A. Hill, who died Wednes day last at St. Edward, Boone county, aged 79 years. She suffered a stroke of paralysis the previous Sunday, from which she never recovered. Mrs. Hill was a resident of this city some years ago, and made a number of warm friends during her stay. Her husband died in the army in 1864. Mrs. Hill was grand mother of Lieutenant Lester Sisson, who was killed in the Philippines. She leaves four children, fourteen grand-children and seven great-grandchildren. Johnny Baker, the celebrated crack trap shot, who has been with Buffalo Bill's Wild West show since its organiza tion in this city in 1963, passed through the city Monday on his way from North Platte to New York city. He had been called home by the death of his father, who was a pioneer in this country, and a man much respected in the community where he lived. Besides being a crack shot, Johnny is CoL Cody's first lieuten ant, and in giving orders to the army of employes connected with the show, he does it in such a manner that everything moves like clock-work, and at the same time he is very popular with all hands. He was accompanied by his two bright, little daughters. R. B. Thompson, a character pretty well known in this county, recently a resident of Creston, it seems has gotten himself into trouble at Emerson, where he located to practice law, and is now in the county jail at Ponea, awaiting the continuance of bis preliminary hearing on the charge of obtaining money under false pretenses. The trial is set for Feb ruary 5. A special to the Omaha World Herald gives the following in regard to his doings: "Smiley, an Emerson mer chant, having some financial entangle ment, sought Thompson's advice. The charge is that Thompson represented that he had bills for collection which he was compelled to push as Smiley s cred itors were getting alarmed. Shortly afterward he called on Smiley and in formed him that warrants were out for his arrest and that the sheriff was in town to serve them, and the best thing he could do would be to gire him (Thompson) power of attorney, and turn over his property. Meanwhile an ac complice called, saying he was the sheriff of Dakota county, and was after Smiley. Thompson conferred with him and put him off while Smiley turned his prop erty over to Thompson and with Thomp son's assistance left the state. In a short time Smiley found a trick had been played on him, and returned and caused Thompson's arrest." Wm. T. Allen, who has for some months been in the employ of the Mexi can Central Railway company at Tam pico, Mexico, has returned home to stay, not liking that country as a home. He says he did honest work for his dollar, but when he received his 31.000 in Mex ican money he was compelled to ex change it for $47250 of United States money. He would like to have every free silver advocate of Nebraska live awhile in Mexico to fully appreciate the value of the situation. United States money, whether metal or paper, is eagerly grabbed up. Much trading is done with pennies, and they illustrate the relative merits of the currency; it takes three of ours to weigh as much as one of theirs, while one of ours is worth two of theirs. He says that a suit of man's clothing costing 313 here would be 355 there; shoes 32 here, 36 there; a hat 31.50 here, same kind there $6; everything in mer chandise is bought and sold on a gold basis except tobacco and cigars. Mr. Allen speaks very highly of President Diaz, as a patriot, an official who enfor ces the law, and as an intelligent man comprehending the needs of the people, and exerting his energies to accomplish good for the nation. He says that the railroads are doing very much in the development of the natural resources of the country and the civilization of the people, but the natives are fitly named "greasers," being slippery, treacherous, shiftless, lazy; many of them have no house to shelter them at night, but wherever they find themselves when night overtakes them, they wrap their blanket around them and he down on the bare ground to sleep. Near the coast fhe climate is warm. Until the winter of '96, which was cold enough to cut down the coffee farms, the oldest settlers had not seen frost there, but back in the mountains, it is colder. Three clerks in the railroad office, all former residents of Missouri and also advocates of the free and unlimited coinage of silver, wrote their old friends, detailing their experi ence with the coin and advising them not to give countenance to say political party who gave encouragement to such doctrine. Mr. Allen leaves with us two samples of lignum-vita, a solid wood very much in use there. He says that ebony, which is so costly elsewhere, is used there for railroad ties, and is so dense that holes are bored into it in order to receive the spikes. A singular custom of theirs is to allow no corpse to be brought out of the country. Poor people are wrapped in a blanket, and put under seal barely sufficient to hide them from daylight. The rich rent a burial place, but if the pay ceases, after a year the dead bodies are cast out. Mr. Allen's grandson, Georgie, accompanied him, and awing the first big flag of the Union, he was very much delighted, and sang oat a lad's salate to the Stars and Stripes. Mattie Post and Miss Madge Cashing of Columbus were guests of the Follerton Poet. CHBJSTMAS IS PAST !
