two to three weeks to complete the sur

will be seventy-five mfles long, six feet

W. H. Lewie returned Tuesday of
last week from a week's visit to Battle
Greek, Michigan. He nays that through
Iowa and JJlinoia the fields were very
wet, but corn looked immense and Ne
braska led tbem all for that crop. Battle
Creek ia a city of lr563 inhabitants,
about 165 miles from Chicago and 130
from Detroit, with n great many manu
facturing industries; among them are
Niebolx k 8hepards and the Advance
threshing machine plaata; a great many
factories making cereals, where costly
machinery ia required. The large Sani
tarium which was destroyed by fire is
being re-built and will be one block in
length, 535 feet. Electric ears ran west
25 miles to Kalamacoo, also to Gnll
Lake, a summer resort, another line runs
south, and one east Mr. Lewis says the
reason Battle Creek is such a prosperoas
city is becaaee of its manufacturing in
dustries. Platte county has bettor farm
ing laad. When Colambus succeeds in
getting the power canal there ia no
reason why we can not be a city of 20,000
ia a few years.-
D. L. Hough, president of the United
Engineering aad Contracting Company
of New York, who recently made a tour
of Nebraska in the interest of the irriga
tion facilities of the state, has made an
encouraging report on the electric power
possibilities of the Loup river canal in
Platte county, which is to empty into the
reservoir north of Colambus and is
known aa the property of the Nebraska
Central Irrigation Company. He says
the flow of water can be made to develop
an average of 10,000 horsepower a day, to
be sent n distance from Columbus to
Omaha, Part of the time the flow will
be capable of generating 20100 horse
power a day. A plant to do this would
oost not to exoeed $3,000,000. The pro
posed canal ia to be twenty-three miles
long, emerging from the Loup river near
Genoa. It will approach Columbus over
high land aad when near will undergo n
fall of eighty-five feet. Direct action
upon the turbines could be secured from
1,800 cubic feet of water per second,
according to the figures of the engineer.
Now it eastern capitalists can only be
induced to take hold of the scheme what
a magnificent improvement it would
prove for thia vicinity!
The city council met in regular.
sion lust Friday evening. A petition
signed by Frank J. Gerharx and twenty
four other resident tax payers praying
for the extension by the city council of
additional water mains through certain
streets in the northern part of the city,
aa being mack needed for fire protection
and for other uses, was presented and
read and upon motion was referred to
the committee oa public property sad
water works. The finance oommittoe
submitted n report finding the accounts
for Jaly of City Treasurer Galley, correct.
Councilnuui Clark introduced the fol
lowing resolutions: "Whereas, The
waterworka of Colambus at present rates
charged for water, which ia far below
rates charged by other cities, do not pay
running expeasss, therefore be it Resolv
ed, by the city council, the rates should
be raised to a price that will make the
waterworka self sustaining." The reso
lution was adopted by the council. The
council find that some change must be
made in the price of water rente, as they
are running behind in the expenses.

Edrob Journal: Thinking a few
words from here at this time would be
like n chat with eome of your readers, I
jot a few notes. I arrived at my brother
William's in Williamsfield, Knox county,
HL, early Tuesday morning. Next morn
ing, in company with brother went to
Wyoming, took livery-there for mother's
on the old homestead which lies about
midway between Wyoming and Toulon;
found mother, two brothers and three
sisters there looking for me, and sure
enough, a happy greeting it was. The
next day waa old settlers' meeting at
Toulon, so all rose early on Thursday,
Aag. 14, the women folks having pre
pared a huge picnic dinner for the
occasion, your humble servant and oth
ers were preparing for a big day. Arriv
ed at O. S. M. at 10 o'clock a. m., and
having lived in Toulon for seventeen
years prior to moving to Columbus I
thought I would know them all, but
there is where I made a mistake. Many
of them had moved away, many have
died, even then, a few I met had to tell
me their names before I could recognize
them, but nearly every one I saw and
recognized seemed to be as happy to
meet me aa though they were a near
relative, and the day will always be fresh
in my memory as one of the happy events
of my life. We returned to grandma's
in the evening after I had promised about
twenty persons that I would spend one
dsy in Toulon before returning my time
will be up one week from next Monday.
A heavy rain fell last Wedneedsy morn
ing and another Thursday night. The
bottom lands on Spoon river and Indian
creek have been overflowed most all
spriag and the corn has been submerged
so many times and so long that it is
almost a complete failure. The oats
harvest looks just like ours, lodged,
weedy sad patches left which were too
wet to operate the harvester. Sinoe my
arrival the days have been cloudy but
pleasant; will probably spend day in
Wyoming on tomorrow.
