school aad since 1894 has been superin

no business or normal college is behind
the times, and if there is sny enterprise
we have needed it is in those lines. The
railroad facilities sre excellent and there
is every encouragement to believe that
the promoters will meet with success.

A pretty wedding ceremony took

city last Sunday evening between 8 and
9 o'clock when Miss Christina Kipple
and Mr. W. W. Ogden were united in
marriage, Bev. Miesaler officiating. Mr.

There were about seventy-five invited

Monday morning for Tina, Missouri, the
former home of the groom. They will
return in about two weeks to begin
housekeeping. The bride is the daugh
ter of a well known farmer living about
two miles east of town and the groom
has been a clerk for some time in Hoist
Jfc Adams' store. Tax Jocbsai. joins
with their many friends in extending to
the couple best wishes for the fullest
happiness which life can bring.
Saturday's Fremont Tribune con
tained the following information: "A
joint meeting of the directors of the
Commercial club and the power canal
company was held Thursday morning.
A telegram had been received fromL. D.
Richards, now in New York asking if it
would be satisfactory for the Fremont
company to join with the Columbua com
pany in the matter of guaranteeing the
cost of a survey. Knowledge of the ex
act status of affairs waa so limited that
nothing definite could be done. The
supposition was that Fremont and Co
lumbus will join on the survey and each
will take its chance on a favorable re
port in its behalf. Each one has already
had a survey and it ia not known why
these are not regarded aa satisfactory
All the committee could do under the
drcumstancea was to authorize Mr.
Richards to proceed aa hia judgment
dictated, since he is 'on the ground' and
knows the situation aa no one here
does." Since the above waa pat in type
word has been received by interested
partiea here from H. E. Babcock who is
in New York City that the proposition
submitted by him to the promoters of
the Fremont project has been accepted.
The proposition is to submit the two
plana to expert engineers who are to
determine which is the better; having
this decided the promoters of both
schemes are to join to make the better
plan a success. Mr. Babcock states
that it will be at least six weeks before
anything more definite will materalize.
The infant son of Mr. and Mrs. J. G.
Becher last Wednesday about 5 o'clock
in the afternoon got hold of a bottle of
medicine which was in a harness chest
in the stable and swallowed a portion of
the contents. He then ran to the house,
the bottle still in his hand, and the
mother saw immediately that the child
had taken some of the deadly poison.
Within five minutes, several physicians
were present bat nothing could be done
to save him, and aboat 7 o'clock little
Paul David's spirit psssed to the world
beyond. The poison was a preparation
used for external purposes on horses and
contained red iodide of mercury and
corrosive sublimate. Paul was born
November 18, 1901, and was a sweet,
lovable child indued with a beautiful
nature. Mr. Becher had been called
away to Omaha in the morning by the
serious sickness of his mother and did
not reach home until after the baby had
passed away. Funeral services were held
from the home Friday afternoon, con
ducted by Rev. Cash of the Episcopal
church. The pall-bearers were Louise
Bncher, Dene Kavanaugh, Mary Howard
and Susie Boon. Neighbor girl friends
of the family lined the grave at the cem
etery with flowers. Relatives from out
of town who came to attend the funeral
were Miss Stella Becher and Miss Emma
Wake of Omaha, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas
Wake of Seward, Frank Wake of Genoa
and Charles Wake, jr., of St. Edward.
The family have sincere sympathy of the
entire community in their great sorrow.
The present interest in the power
canal reminds us that in the early days
of Columbus the settlers were conscious
of the power to be derived from the
waters of the Loup river. A pamphlet
history of Platte county printed in 1876
and written by LN. Taylor, one of the
brightest men of the early settlers, indi
cates that serious thought waa given the
problem. Early files of Tax Jocmsxl
also contain many articles upon the sub
ject. We quote from the pamphlet of
Mr. Taylor the closing paragraph, which,
should the power eanal materialize.
would seem now to have been well
prophesied: ''Columbus ia a town of far
more promise than a casual observer
would suppose. It has the natural posi
