Educational Institutions
Public Schools.
The public schools of Columbus
occupy live buildings, four of which
are two story bricks. Twenty-five
teachers are employed, including the
superintendent. The high school
building is modern in the strictest
sense. It was erected at a cost of
over .27.000, has u line assembly room,
abundant light, high ceiling, end
tinted walls. The schools are under
the control of a most efficient Board
composed of i tract ical business men
who take the time lrom their various
affairs to see that the children of the
district are provided for liberally.
Credit is due the Hoard, in large meas
ure, for the excellent conditions that
prevail. Throughout the grades every
line of eleiiientarv school work receives
careful attention, including music
and drawing, the latter under the
supervision of a special teacher. The
nigh school offers courses in the lan
guages, mat hematics, sciences, manual
training and fre-hand drawing.
Thn school spirit of the peoplo is
most commendable, and is manifested
in various ways. Recently a large
subscription bus been raided towards
a high school gvmuasium, one of the
improvements contemplated for the
near future.
Graduates of the Columbus high
school occupy prominent places among
Columbus business men and in the
foremost universities in the country.
Catholic School.
The Catholic parish at Columbns
conducts n school which has develop
ed into au academy with all high
school grades. The school is in charge
of Franciscan sifters. Being not only
a day school but likewise a boarding
school, it has become a point of at
traction tor all Romnn Catholics of
the West as au educational center.
The building is spacious and of brick,
embracing six beautifully furnished
class rooms, the residence and chapel
for the sitters and boarders. This
year an addition was erected to the
building by which the whole struc
ture gained nor only in size but in
uniformity and beauty. The entire
building represent? a value of :!(),
000. It can easily acenmedate :?0
children, the present enrollment being
200 day scholars and C.'.i boarders.
CoiiiiiicTcial Collcjrt'.
The Columbus Commercial college
was opened by W. W. Waters in 1D0:5
and has made a steadv growthg since
that time. Thorough courses in busi
ness, shorthand and type-writing,
and other courses are also offered.

It is regretted that space can not be
given to describe every one of the ex
cellent retail establishments in Co
lumbus. No city in the state of its size has
more up-to-date retail stores and enjoys
a larger retail business thanColombus.
Brief sketches will be given of only
those businesses illnstrated by cuts.
Other business firms just as note
worthy, we are forced to ommit on
account of lack of space.
Gray Mercantile Company.
The Gray Mercantile Co., the larg
est ratail store in Columbus, is locat
ed on one of the best corners in the
city, with a frontage of 44 feet on
13th street and 172 feet on North
street. This firm commenced business
in the spring of 181)0, with a hard
ware department only, in a room
22x"J0. This room is still occupied by
them with their hardware stock.
The Gray firm has kept pace with
the rapid and substantial growth of
eastern Nebraska, and has added new
tJjtumlus licit
departments until now no retail es
tablishment in the West ontside of
Omaha c Denver exceeds it in size or
volnme of business done. They now
occupy as sales rooms a floor space of
10,1(00 square feet, while the storage
rooms cover 16.000 square feet, or a
total of 2o,lHX) square feet. Besides
the four proprietors they employ a
torce of nineteen clerks.
Owing to the completeness and vari
ety of stock carried in each depart
ment, this firm is not dependent upon
tbe trade of Columbus alone, but has
a large patronage from the territory
within a radius of more than 50 miles
and does an extensive mail order bus
iness. In thn year 1904 tbe Gray company
shipped in twelve carload lots of
goods, in addition to their large and
constant local shipments. Their equip
ment is perfect for handling their
large business. A large freight eleva
tor is operated by a gasoline motor
which is also connected with the
machinery for cleaning and grading
all kinds of seeds in the seed depart
ment. The hardware department occupies
a floor space of 24x70 ; the grocery
44x.0 ; shoes and gents' furnishings
44xW ; and the dry goods 44x80. The
dry goods department is under the
management of W. L. Chenoweth who
came to Columbus from Chicago. He
is an experienced merchant in that
Gray's Dry Goods Department.

Mills buy ami ship L'raiu. The large
trade of these eompnnies abroad keeps
thi'in running nt full capacity most of
tho time and farmers are assured all
th time more than the market price
for their millnble product. No insti-
i tutions do more good for the home
community than the mills. People
should remember this when they buy
flour. Both these mills have tho very
latest improved machinery.
The HxreJleut finnucial condition
of Columbus is well illnstrated by

School Lecture Course committee on
Febr. 1st is one of Chicago's most
successful clergymen. As a lecturer
in regular lyceum courses, on com
mencement occasions, before teachers'
insiitntes and at Cbautauonas. Dr.
Fox is in constant demand. No
better evidence of his popularity need
be presented than the fact that he has
received as many as six return en
gagements in some places. He is a
favorite everywhere. Tho lecture
course committee considers him one of
their strong numbers, and he should
be greeted by a full house.
The following is what one of the
foremost of lecturers says :
"Dr. D. F. Fox. my Congregational
co-laborer in Chicago, is a man with a
message. It is an unfeigned pleasure
to speed the work of such a speaker.
Let that man be nntronbled who in
troduces him to an audience. He
never fails to move and uplift. I say
do not miss his lectrue unless you have
a grudge against yourself. Hear him.
Robert Mclntvre "
Dr. C. E. Leach, who has been
practicing dentistry at Sargent, Neb ,
for tbe past year, comes to Columbus
February 1, and will enter tbe em
ploy of Dr. Paul. Dr. Leach comes
well recommended from Sargent, ani
is certainly making a forward step
in coming to Columbus. He is a Platte
county boy having been born and
raised in the country three miles north
of Humphrey where his father, R. N.
Leach, still resides. From what we
can learn of Dr. Leach and what we
know of Dr. Paul, we wonld say that
both are to be congratulated.
