stewardship of the county funde over to
his successor every cent was accounted
for, besides every man in the county waa
his friend." That kind of a man will
make a good governor.

Coming home from the convention
last week we stayed over night in Co
lumbua For the first time in our life
we wandered out to the court house and
as we journeyed we wondered why they
didn't locate it in the business portion
of Fremont instead of the suburbs. Ar
riving at the seat of justice, or injustice,
we were almost filled with envy when
we observed the beautiful shady park in
which the house is located and remem
bered the other little fascinating spot
where lovers wander in the gloaming,
which belongs to the city. To think
that Columbua haa two such dreams of
Paradise and Albion has not even the
picture'of one:is enough to make one
weep over the frail shortsighted human
ity of Loran Clark, John Peters and
others that they did not make thia pro
vision twenty-five years sgo. Cant
some one suggest how it might yet be
done? We must have a park and that
right soon. Albion Argus.
The following from the Platte Cen
ter Signal may concern a good many of
our readers and if heeded may save them
trouble and expense: "Numerous com
plaints have been made by farmers living
along lower Shell creek about the dan
gerous and inexcusable nuisance of
throwing dead animate into the creek.
A petition has been circulated among
the prominent farmers of lower Shell
creek and business men of Columbus,
which petition sets forth that unless tha
practice of throwing dead aniniala into
the creek is abated the malefactors wUl
be arrested aad punished according to
law. We extend this warning to the
farmers living along Shell creek in this
part of the country for the reason that
the petitioners have a stringent law on
their aide aad they are determined to
enforce it. The habit of throwing dead
animals into streams is a criminal offease
aad should not be tolerated ia a civilised
commuaity. It spreade' contagion of
disease to maa aad beast, and tha
quicker aa example is made of a wrong
doer in thia direction the bettor it will
be for the commuaity."

The aew hospital building oa cast
Fifteenth is neeriag completion and will
make a epkadid addition to the city.
The brick aad stone structure has
three fall stories, a high basement aad
an attic, will coataia forty rooms for the
use of patients besides operating room,
parlors, dining rooms, ate. The old hos
pital accommodates 150 patiente includ
ing the dormitories. The new building
will cost $50,000 aside from the furnish
ing. The wood work, plumbing and
electric lighta are now receiving the fin
ishing touches aad the magnificent
structure will probably be ready for
occupancy the latter part of August
There win be 310 electric lights con
trolled by oae awitchboard, electric belle
for each room for the accommodation of
patients, telephones on each floor, dumb
waiters and many other conveniences.
The operating rooms have been built on
striot sanitary plana with tile floors,
rounded corners in the wall, ventilators,
sky light, etc. The chapel, which ie
complete bat for the seating, occupies
the third sad fourth storissof the build
ing. The walla are beautifully frescoed
ia brown and red shades with trimmings
in gold leaf. A small' gallery for the
choir ia at the rear of the room. The
altar pieces are in place, but not uncov
ered. , There is one large kitchen with a
modern range, with dumb waiters and
telephones connected with each floor.
There ia also a separate kitchen and oven
for bread baking. One of the valuable
pieces of furniture in the house will be a
Urge refrigerator, whioh ia now on ita
way from Indiana. Charles Wurdeman
haa had the superintending of the build
ing, the Dnssolle had the contract for
all the plumbing and heating, Jacob
Glur has the cement work and Echols A
Dietricha oiling the wood and painting.
Besides these there are many other
workmen from the city. The Sisters of
the hospital deserve all credit for the
great undertaking they have assumed
and for the splendid reputation they
have established for the hospital all over
thia section of the west When the new
building is completed there will not be
a better equipped hospital in the state
both as to nurses and sanitary condi
tions. In a few months several more
nurses will be added to the list of helpers.
On the morning of the Fourth, after
two or three weeks of very wet weather,
the eun came up clear with good pros
pects for a spell of fine, clear, sunshine,
hence all roade led to Columbus, but
among the thousands who came, there
are few who would not come again and
brave the rain storm we were favored
with in the evening.
Dealers in fireworks were well stocked
with all kinds of combustibles, from
small crackers two for a nickel up to the
largest cannon crackers which look so
innocent yet are so dangerous and de

plainly said we are coming for a good
time, and they surely had it The train
waa met at the depot by the Columbus
City Band amid the firing of thousands
of guns, pistols and cannon crackers.
After the train arrived the participants
in the parade congregated at court house
square and at 10:30 sharp started, headed
by the St Edward band, with the Rev.
Ed. King as drum major. While passing
1st us stop to compliment the little city
of St Edward on the appearance of its
band as a whole, also on the excellent
musio rendered; we think we can truth
fully say that it is one of the very beet
bands in the state, everything consid
ered, and composed of a gentlemanly lot
The parade waa a surprise to many
who were not expecting to aee much.
The committee worked hard for this
feature of the celebration. The mer
chants were loth to take the responsi
bility of decorating floats on account of
the changeable weather so that there
were but a few of these exhibits. Those
who did, however, showed excellent
taste in their decorations.
The parade formed at the court house
square and after marching through the
principal business streets disbanded at
Frankfort park. Peter Duffy, mounted
on horseback, headed the procession, aa
one of C J. Garlow's aides. The St
Edward band came next then C. J. Gar
low, Wm. Terry, C. a Eaaton and Ray
Young, all mounted on horseback; the
base bell teams; the mayor and city
council in carriages; Urge float with
caorua giris who furnished selectione of

came decorated carriages; Columbus

by Rev. Hayes, were all listened to with

The balloon ascension that was adver

of the high wind and rain.
The ball game scheduled to commence
at 4 o'clock waa one feature of the sports
that brought out a record breaking
crowd to the grounds, and long before
the hour arrived the grand stand waa
filled, most of the occupants being from
St. Edward, who were ready to give their
favorites all possible encouragement.
The game wss a good one; there would
perhaps have been more scores recorded
but for the wind which was strong from
the south. The tallies at the end of the
game stood 4 to 0 in favor of Columbus.
