One of the most brazen examples of
petty larceny ever committed in Co
lumbus is reported by Captain August
Wagner. National guard supplies
consisting of leggings, blue shirts and
coats, have been missed from Company
K's armory for some time, aggrega
ting between $25 and $80 worth. At
first no cine could be discovered, and
no one thought of suspecting a mem
ber of the company. Finally, how
ever. Capt. Wagner's suspicions were
aroused and he succeeded in ferreting
the matter out.
Tte name of the culprit is withheld,
but when accused he confessed his
guilt. The offense is a serious one
and has been taken under oonsidera
tiou by Adjutant-General Culver.
Meanwhile Captain Wagner warns
the public against buying or wearing
any army apparel, for which the law
imposes a penalty.
Another member of the company ia
under suspicion and some interesting
developments may follow soon.

Another victory was added to the list
of thaOolambaa base ball team Sunday,
wheathe strong Fremont team was de
feated by a score of 8 to 7.
The game was devoid of excitement
until the ninth inning. Up to that time
the home boys had seven score to Fre-
moat's three, and the game looked like
a walk-away. Jim Corbett was ofHciat
iag in the box for Columbas and had
done a good job until the ninth when
the cunning departed from his strong
right arm and the enemy brought in
four runs without losing a man and
tied'the score. At this critical moment
Bjad.Lohr strolled up from second base
aad took charge of the feeding end of
MM machinery. As soon as be got his
feeVin the box be began tossing the
tiatl' around so recklessly that the Fre
mont laddies lost all track of it and
many of them were still striking at it
when it was on the way back to the
pitcher's box. Jack Corbett completed
the aircuit, behind the bat, and the es
timated time for the round trip was two
seconds. The side was retired without
any more runs, and Columbus came to
the bat in the latter half' of the ninth
with a tied score. Two men went out
andLohr came to the bat. In the first
half of the inning the Fremont pitcher
while at the bat had got in the way of
Lohr's grapevines and was called out for
striking at a dead ball He now seemed
disposed to get even and the first two
he sent up made Dad take to the grass
to save his ribs. Having thus demoral
ized the enemy by heavy artillery fire,
he sent one close to the plate and Dad
roee.rlp and lit on it. The ball was last
seen going over the canvas behind the
center field and was still rising. S core,
Columbus 8, Fremont, 7.
There was some rag-chewing over a
decision of the umpire in the first half
of the exciting ninth inning when he
called out a Fremonter for interfering
with Shortstop Jimmy Jones while the
latter was in the act of catching a ball.
Joe Mahaffey was umpire, and be con
vinced the Fremont boys that the de
cision was in accordance with the rules,
whiph declare any man out who inter
fere with members of the opposing team.

Miss Aggie Early entertained a few
girl friends Monday evening at a six
o'clock luncheon. The refreshments
were served in six courses, and Mr. John
Early acted as the chef of the occasion
in an admirable manner. Nasturtiums
were used as the flower decorations, and
place cards and menu cards helped to
make the table attractive. Those pres

Jalius Nichols in company with
Frank Rankin of Shenandoah, Iowa,
visited Schayler yesterday to examine
the clay south of that place with the
view of establishing a brick yard
there. They foand the material about
what they were looking for, aad it is
not improbable that there will some
time in the near future, be established
a yard with Karr, Nichols and Ran
kin as proprietors. This does not
mean that the business of Karr &
Nichols will be lessened here by aay
means as the firm are well pleased
with their trade, aad have hopes of
steadily improving it. This season
the yard has made two million brick
and expects to barn half as aay more
before winter. Mr. Rankin, who has
been a maaafactarer of brick in
Shenandoah for fifteen years, recently
sold his interests there and expects to
invest somewhere la this locality.
He has beea ia the city since last
week and is the guest of Mr. Karr,
his old time friend.
' The festive tented season is once more
upon us and our hearts beat in unison
with our happy youngsters in the glad
anticipation of again witnessing the
thrilling acts of trained athletes; the
antics of the perennially amusing clowns,
the marvelous intelligence of the highly
trained animals, and the fearsome, awe
some, yet fascinated wonder which
thrills our hearts when we gaze upon
the wild beasts confined in the mena
gerie. It is always an event when the
ever welcome Norris A Rowe's big shows
give exhibitions in this city, and this
season more than ever before will the
excitement run higher, for to the really
splendid show they brought us last sea
son, these clever young managers have
added a huge circus world in itself It
contains gymnasts, acrobats, tumblers,
equilibrists, clowns, and athletes, whose
marvelous flights through the air will
prove spectacularly thrilling to the au
dience. The greater show is just twice
as large as it ever was before. It will be
given in two rings and upon an elevated
stage. A multitude of new features
never before presented in this country
will be shown. It will contain a
menagerie of wild and native beasts
performing elephants, camels, lions, tig
ers, tapirs, Hamas, buffaloes, kangaroos,
ostriches, elk,deer, ponies, goats and
monkeys, but most wonderful of all will
be thrilling acts performed high up in
mid air by the athletes. Managers Nor
ris and Rowe have secured this season
to make good their claim that they have
a big circus and though there has been
an enormous outlay of capital in order
to secure these acts and novelties, no
other than the old established scale of
prices will prevail. The mammoth new
tents will therefore surely hold immense
audiences and this way will repay the
owners for their generous outlay. The
new big shows will give two perform

At O. E. Sterns claim beyond Shell
Creek a well is being sunk and at a
depth of forty-five feet they have found
the same formation of soil as at the sur
face. On the 6th of January fifteen men
started from Columbus to explore the
Loup Fork oouotry some with an
eye to any stray game that might be
lurking around, and others with a mind
to business in the land line. Of the
latter was our friend James E. North
who made the trip with a view of look
ing out locations for colonies. He tells
us that the trip extended as far west as
the fork of the main Loup with the
North Branch. It is a fine ooantry,
splendid land and timber. The reser
vation and the land west of it as far as
the party went, is spoken of as equaling
the best in the state.

perhaps, be sufficient, and of all the
available stations we regard the North
Banch at a point forty or fifty miles
from its mouth as the best. It is cen
trally located and is in the Indian range.
At the Opera. Hi
The fanny New England comedy,
"Uncle Josh Spruceby" will be the next
big event at the North Opera house
commencing Tuesday Sept 20. This
charming drama is a series of pictures
of New England life on the farm, and
the troubles of "Uncle Josh" in making
a visit to New York are incidently touch
ed upon; the characters are all taken
from Vermont rural life and are true to
nature, the play containing a mixture of
pathos and humor. Special scenery is
used to mount the different sceses, and
the great saw mill scene used in this
production is the most realistic piece of
stage mechanism ever presented.
Twenty people are in the company. In
the cities visited this season the press
are lavish in their praise of the pro
duction. Many new and catchy special
ties are presented. A solo operatic
orchestra and a big band are the mus
ical features. A big parade is given at
noon daily and the concert of popular
music rendered by band is very popular
and attracts large crowds.
