He has three sows that raised 25 pigs

He says he gets more pigs from pure

serf forms the focal point of a story
of intrigue, strife, and heroism, told
in dramatic form in the Russo-Siber-ian
melo-drama, FOR HER SAKE,
which comes to North's opera house
Monday night, August 21). It is said
to be one of the strongest Siberian
plays of recent years, and the comedy
element is said to be especially novel
and consistent. There are scenes in
peasant's huts, in a magnincent ap
pointed ball room, in the interior ot a
Siberian mine, and other character

The Columbus fire company was
represented at the Norfolk tourna
ment by only two men, B. J. Galley
and Fred Urich. B. J. Galley, who
acted as judge in the events of one
day, says that not so many firemen
were present as usual, nut that the
attendance from outside was unusual
ly large, and that the urogram was in
teresting. York won the state cham
pionship, made the 200 yards run, lay
ing hose 150 feet and making the ne
cessary couplings in 32 and two-fifths
seconds. Stanton was close second.
And in the free-for-all, Stanton beat
York, winning in 32 and one-fifth
seconds. J. J. Johnson, well known in
Columbus, now manager of the Fre
mont Steam Laundry, acted with Bert
Galley as judge. The toarnament was
a sacoeas financially, netting a profit
of 600. This is a good place to call

Columbus already has a state wide
reputation as a city of beautiful houses.
And Columbus citizens are evidently
bent on keeping that reputation good.
Four new houses costing from $300 to
$5000 are in process of construction
besides a number of smaller anas. M.
EL White's house, the building which
is in charge of Jas. Peanall, will be
completed in about six weeks. The
interior of this house will be finished
up in cak3 and maples, no expense be
ing spared to make it strictly modern
and up-to-date. J. N. Heater is
building a fine home on thirteenth
street, presonally superintending the
work so that no possible provision for
comfort and convenience will be over
looked. Mr. Heater is pushing things
and expects to have his new home ready
for occupancy in September. H. Mar
cock has just completed a neat and
commodious residence also on thir
teenth street and J. C. Freydig has
commenced the building of a modern
home on seventeenth and L street that
will cost about $3000 when completed.

The onlcer found the bag. It con

scription of a prairie fire which raged
in Butler county. Over 150C0 tons of
hay were consumed. Fallowing is
the closing paragraph of the letter:
"I reached the Platte valley an Wed
nesday and found some twenty men
near in consultation as to the best
method to be adopted to secure some
thousand tons of hay which was
scattered over five or six sections of
land. The dark column of smoke just
visible over the blunts warned them
to take immediate action. "They
chose Mr. Will son to act as leader,
who at once took charge of the men
assembled. There then commenced
a race against wind and fire, which
resulted in the men coming out just
one minute ahead, with the loss of
two stacks of hay containing some
ten tana. This wild, rushing fire was
a fearfully grand sight."
