passenger on the Albion and Cedar

11:20 a. m., and iadue to return at 2p.m.
The Great and only Herrmann, the
most expert adept in the art of magic
the world has ever seen will mystify and
delight the theatre-goers of this city at
the North opera house next Saturday
evening. Herrmann is a name that is
synonymous with all that is mysterious
and awe inspiring and most mystifying
and incomprehensible feats of magic are
performed by him with a charm of man
ner and running fire of wit that would
lore a confirmed cynic into admiration.
For his present engagement in this city
he brings many new novelties that have
never been seen here before. Several
sensational illusions presented by him
have set all America talking.

tiff, together with interest oa the $500
since last March and the expenses of the
case. The suit waa brought by A. Dus
eel for $500 for fulfillment of a contract
made in Denver last March at the time
of the marriage of Miss Jessie Duaaell to
Robert Henry, the money to be given for
defraying expenses of the young wife.
The suit waa brought against Mrs. Mary
Henry, mother of the groom. The dis
trict court has adjourned until January
5th, when the Borchers' boys trial for
the murder of their father will be heard.
A certain man has treasured for
years among his valued possessions a
little tin horse and wagon. It was a
Christmas gift from a little boy who was
blind, deaf and dumb. The thrice-affiict-ed
child had no conception of other
wants or pleasures than his own; he
could not understand that the toy would
not be valuable, intrmaically, to the man
as it was to himself. It was one of the
boy's treasures, and because he loved
this friend, he shared his best with him.
And throughout all the world at that
Christmastide there was given no gift
more truly in the spirit of the day than
this. When we give of our best, un
grudgingly and lovingly, we give after
the fashion of the Father's gift of his Son.
Christmas is the day of the year on which
a man can least afford to think ungener
ous thoughts of anybody. William Ellis.
The High school debating team of
this city, consisting of Bertha Chapin,
Albert Brugger and Harry Jerome, went
to Seward Friday to contest with the
High school team of that place on the
question: "Resolved, That cities should
own and control their own franchises."
Columbus taking the affirmative. The
question waa well discussed on both
sides. The decision of the judges was
two to one in favor of Seward, but Co
lumbus has no reason to feel ashamed of
its team. The visitors were given a
reception at the magnificent residence of
Mr. Jones on the evening of the debate.
They returned Saturday night well
pleased with their visit. Those who
accompanied the debaters were: Mrs.
Brugger, Martha Stauffer, Nellie Evans,

The Great and only Herrmann comes
to the North open house Saturday, Dec
27th, in his magnificent exhibition of
magic and occult phenomenon. The
critical theatre-goers of the United
States have long since endorsed the
marvellous work of this Great Herrmann,
and it is safe to say that as an enter
tainer in magic and sensational illusions,
his standard ia absolutely secure as being
the foremost purveyor of this style of
entertainment on the American stage.
Novelties in magic are as essential to
success as in the field of the drama and
it is probably to this one fact that Herr
mann always presents something new
and startling, something that starts the
tongues to wagging in the cities he visits
as well as to the marvellous dexterity
with which these feats are performed
that much of his phenomenal success
While the question of distributing
more state normal schools throughout
Nebraska is being discussed, it would be
well for Columbus people to put in her
claim. Norfolk and Fremont both want
a normal institution- Columbas is a
better place than either of these towns,
is accessible to the cities as well as' all
the western part of the state and can be
reached easily from all directions. This
section of the country has need of a
normal or college. Platte county alone
has sent many pupils to higher schools
over the state and many more could take
advantage of normal training if it were
nearer home. For several years past
Albion baa felt the need of normal
school work, and educators conduct a
summer school each year which is well
attended. If a normal should be built
in Columbus, students and teachers from
Albion and other towns along the branch
roads would give it hearty support.
The All-American bowling team, on
a tour of the United States, met Colum
bus players at Hagel's alleys Wednesday

On account of "stage fright" the Colum
bus trio wen unable to get their usual
quota of pins, nevertheless then was but

a better showing against the All-Americans
and that was Nebraska City. The
