The "Black Flag" store, which has
been tied up some extremely comlpex
litigation for about a month was aold
at public auction last Monday, J. J.
Richards of Farnam, Nebraska bid
ding it in for about $4000. This
store was opened in Jane, 1903 by
Richards Brothers and London. In
May 1904 it went into bankraptcy,
J. D. Stires being appointed trastee.
When the store was closed the stock
was invoiced at f 7,?& which repre
sented the total assets that could be
found. Later the stock was appraised
at $300 and Several suits were
brought against trastee Stires by
creditors. The Hamilton Brown
Shoe Company 6ued to recover pos
session of ft4tf worth of shoes, claim
ing the bankrupts had bosgbt them
under false pretense. Of this lot of
shoes bought in April 1904 bnt $3S9
worth were in the store at the time
of its closing in May. This suit is
still pending. R. P. Smith and Sons
Co. instituted a similar suit for 950
worth of shoes which are practically
all in the store at this time. This snit
is also pending.
The creditors have proceeded oa the
theory that the bankrupts had bought
goods, knowing themselves to be in
solvent and had shipped these goods
to various parties, principally to S.
Richards of North Platte and A. Lon
don of Newman Grove, with intention
to defraud their creditors Several,
claims were presented against the
bankrubpts. Morris London claimed
420 for wages said to be due him for
wages on a verbal contract br the
terms of which he was to receive $70
per month, but says he has received
only 95. Sam Richards claims 700
said to be due him for merchandise.
The largest creditor is Richards and
Roberts Dry Goods Co. of St. Joe,
who have a claim of $2800.
The liabilities of the bankrupts
amount to $10,000. The costs of liti
gation and the amount that will be
left to the creditors are still in the
balance. The testimony in the case
already covers about 500 tvpe written
J. J. Richards will continue the
busiueess at the "Black Flag".
A Host Iaaastry.
The Columbus Cream Company,
under the management of '. N. tev-
euson. has made wonderful progress
since last spring. Mr. Stevenson is
churning daily from 800 to 1000
pounds of butter besides selling from
40 to 50 gallons ot sweet cream daily.
The butter output absorbs the product
of about 1000 cows, and the sweet
cream sold takes the product of 200
Tne company keeps two men on the
road gathering cream, but most of the
farmers deliver their own cream at
the creamery. The company's busi
ness in neighboring towns is also in
creasing, the product being shipped
Mr. Stevenson uses what is called
the Babcock test in determining the
amount of butter-fat in each can of
cream. The process is very simple. A
slender half-pint bottle is filled with
cream from each can and numbered
to correspond with the number on the
can. A small amount of sulphuric
acid is added and the mixtnre churned
five minutes in a fast-revolving appa
ratus. The butter-fat rises to the top
ot the long-necked bottles which are
marked with a graduated scale to in
dicate number of ounces of butter-fat
contained. The test is absolutely ac
curate so that each customer is paid
for every ounce of butter-fat contained
in his cream.

county farmer within three cents per
pound as much as the New York mar
ket. Prices are a cent or two lower
this summer than they have been
since 1V.9. This is due, Mr. Steven
son says, to the unusually large prod
uct this year, caused by the abandant
rains which have made the pastures
If the business increases next year
as much as it has this year, the plant
will have to be enlarged and an in
creased number of men employed.
There is no single industry that
would increase the productiveness c
Platte county farms more than the de
velopment of the dairy, and no fac
tory that would help the merchants of
Columbus more than a creamery plant
that would take care of every pound
of cream produced in the county and
relieve the merchants of handling bat
ter at a loss.
There is no reason why the milk
industry should not be developed ia
this section as it is in Iowa aad Illi
nois where on many of the railroads
regular milk trains are ran. The
Journal hopes the day is near whaa a
carload of cream will come to Co
lumbus on every railroad and braack
entering our city, to add to the pros
perity of every retail merchant aad
every other business interest represent
ed here.

The fire alarm sounded yesterday
at about noon and within five min
utes the fire department and a large
number of citizens were at the resi
dence of G. T. Everett, where the fire
was reported.
The fire had started in the roof of
the kitchen, at the base of the chim
ney. Mr. Everett was working in
dustriously with a backet of water
when the department arrived. A hole
was soon made through the roof at
the seat of the fire and a small
amount of water sufficed to do the
rest. Indeed some of the eye wit
nesses say that the fire was cxtin
guished by the use of a dipper and
abucket in the aaads of Chas. Easton.

recites that in 1903 a oertaia judg
ment was issued agaiast the plaiatiff
aad an execution oa the same was
delivered to the defendant, aathoriz
ing him to collect the judgment oat

plaintiff alleges that although he

full at the office of a justice of the
peace in Lindsay, a few days after
the execution was issued, aad had his
attorney notify in writing, the defen
dant that said payment had been ten
dered, said payment was refused, and
the defendant went to his farm, ac
companied by a hired assistant, to
levy on plaintiff's property. The
plaintiff alleges that he again offered
to pay the judgment if defendant
would go with him to his bank ia
Newman Grove, and upon the defen
dant's declining to aooept paymeat
in Madison county, the plaiatiff
agreed to go and did go with defea
dant to Lindsay where he agaia offer
ed to pay the judgment by three o'
clock in the afternoon. This offer is
also alleged to have been refused, and
the defendant proceeded to levy on
the plaintiff's team and baggy,
wherepuon the judgment is alleged to
have been paid. The plaintiff says the
charge of $4.45 for the levy of the
execution and for assistance in levy
ing same was unnecessary and unauth

subpoenas in the ease was excessive
and illegal; that he is a peaceful citi
