Young Laudenberger.tbe most seriously injured, was formerly a Co lumbus boy and his father is a resi lient of our city aud went to the assistance of his son as soon as "the accident was reported. The dispatch says: "Morris Laudenberger and Roy Killian, bovs about i: vears old. of Morse Binds, were injured by experi menting with a piece of gas pipe fill ed wim powder yesterday afternoon and ate now in the Fremont hospital. The boys found tho cas pipe, which had been charged with powder, and decided to see if it wonld explode. .Morris took it out into the middle of the tfreet. while Roy observed the situation from the side of a building across the way. He proved beyond a reasonable doubt that the contents of the pipe were of au explosive na ture, for as soon a he dropped a liebt ed match into it there was a terriffic concussion, throwing him to the cround and almost serveriug his left foot ami lee below the knee. A piece cf the pine took off two fingers from Roy's hand aud another went Through the wall of a nearby house just over rhe head of a baby asleep in its cradle, but fortunately injnrine no one. The ioys were brought to Fremont on the afternoon train and young Laudenber cer's leg amputated. Both are doing well this noon. No one seems to know how the gas piv came to be there or who fixed it.

Poole's pupils, assisted by local mu sicians, Monday evening, was attend ed by an audience that filled the Pres byterian church. Pupils of all grades took part in the program and all per formed very creditably. The numbers played b? the ad vanced pupils were of a higher grade musically and greater difficulty tech nically than is usually heard at stu dent recitals of that class. The solos that were played by Wal ter Eoettcher, Hedwig Jaeggi and Mande Galley were selection that are often used by teachers and pro fessional soloists. Of the assisting soloists, MissUaller, Prof. Fnnk and Prof. Poole, nothing more need be said than they lived np to their usual standards of public per formance, and their nambera were warmly applauded by theaadieace. Mr. Poole plaved a most difficult fantasie of Vietempa in a manner that has never been surpassed in Colum bus. He played with better style, better tone and surer execution than wo have ever beard him plav before. A vocal sextette of ladies. withMis Whitmoy-r accompanying, was enjoy - j e.1, and the juvenile orchestra plavcd several numbers with credit. The proceeds of this very successf ul concert go to the Ladies Aid society. Supt- Kern Hay Leave. (Monday's Daily) The Colnmbns schools are in danger of being without a Bupjriutenent. Prof. W. M. Kern has been elected to the presidency of the State Manual Training school of South Dakota, lo cated at Ellendale. Mr. Kern has not yet accepted the place, a he is under contract with the Columbus board for another year and unles the board will voluntarily release him he says he will fulfill his contract. The matter ha not vet been presented to the beard officially, so that it is not known what action will be taken, but individual members have expressed themselves to the effect that when a man has rendered the district such faithful and etuin entlv successful services it would be a poor kind of return for the board to take advantage of their technical right to hold him and compel him to forego a signal advancement in his piofession. The Dakota position pays a salary of 1,800 a year. The school offers a four years course in academic work and four-year courses in various industrial lines. such as manual train ing, domestic science, etc. A course in music is also offered. Prof. Kern wr? elected by the vote of everv man on the electing noard except one, though there were nnmerons appli cants for the place, inclcding the man who was for many years super intendent of the famous school at Menominee, Wis. ' The election is a high compliment to Prof. Kern's standing in the teach ing profession. It is needless to say that teachers, pupils and patrons of the Columbus schools are grieved over the prospect of losing Superin tendent Kern. Mr. Kern received notice of his elec tion last week, but requested the papers not to announce it until he had in formed the school lioard. Destructive Storm. (Monday's Daily) Two strokes of lightning cansed some damage iu Colnmous yesterday afternoon. The central office of tho Independent Telephone Co. was struck and about l."0 telephones put ont of bnsiness. Miss Julia Fox, the day operator, was alone in the exchange at the time the bolt struck. She was painfully shocked.fbnt not seriously, injured. Her right hand was in con tact with the switch board and as a result of the shock her right arm is still lame. Wires were tangled up in confudion. The damage has not been estimated. The lightning 6et tire to the wood work of the switch board, but with her wires all out of commission Miss Fox was unable to send in an alarm. At about the same time an alarm was turned in from the residence uf Fred Gottschalk where the lightning had struck a tree near the house and fol lowed a telephone wire into the house setting it on fire. The fire department turned ont and found both tires, which were extinguished without damage. At Monroe the rural mail carriers had difficulty in going over their routes this morning. Mrs. Kenyon who drives the wagon on route No. 2 ont of Monroe was almost compelled to turn back before her trip was fin ished and was able to complete it only by doing considerable fording. Baccalaureate. The high school baccalaureate ser mon preached by Rev. Cash of tho Episcopal church last Sunday was from the text of Revelation 11 :10 "Be thou faithful unto death and I will give thee a crown of life." A brief ontline of Rat. Cash's very excellent sermon to the graduates is as follows : The question which we ail ask our selves, "Why are we here?" is to be answered by asking ourselves another question, "What is the next thing to be dene?" Every detail of daily work accomplished suggests the next detail. Great achievement's are not isolated incidents but are made up of small units of endeavor and accomplishment. to live one's life best, one needs only to be faithful to the task in hand. Christ came into the world ird made the opportunity of life greater for succeeding ages. And the problem of life is the same in great things and small: He faithful unto death. Never give up. When you finish one thing look around and 6ee what is next. Faithfulness unto death is the road to the crown of life. A BARGAIN. A scholarship with the International Correspondence School for sale.

That the Platte County Independent Tele phone Co. is a heavy stockholder in the i.eigh Telephone 'o. and that said agreement was entered into without their knowledge or consent : That said action on the part of the Leigh Telephone Co. would tend lo depreciate the value of the stock of the Platte County Telenliooo Co.

Following is pirt of the Memorial ser mon preached by Rev.G.A.Munro May J. Ir is printed at the'reqnest of mem bers of the Grand Army and for the special benefit of the patriotic readers of the Journal who were prevented from attending the service : "Is. 2: 3,4. 'Out of Zion shall go forth the law and the word of Jehovah from Jerusalem. And he will judge between the nations and will decide concerning metiy people; and they shall beat tb- ir words iuto plow shares and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift np sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. ' ' The sentiment of the world has greatly changed with re card to war. It is no longer the only business in which a gentleman may engage It is no longer the unques tioned sport of Kings. It may be glor ious or ignoble according as the pur pose for which it is waged is good or bad. It mu it be explained, justified. Rusisa protests to the world that she had no thought of war ; that she had been tryiug to get out of Manchuria but could not -.that the insolent foe bad taken her unawares and driven her into n contest for which she had no liking. Japan on the other nand ex plains that with her it was a question of uational existence; that Russia with the eight of a glacier and the strength of a tiger was creeping down upon her: that Manchuria was being crushed be neath one cruel taw and Corea groan ed beneath another, and it was not the part of wisdom to wait for the tiger to spring; that sudden and com plete destrnction at the hand of the powerful enemv were better than years or centuries of insult, of oppres niou, of dwindling power and fading glory and consequent degeneracy. physicial aud moral. But both have found it necessary to represent to the conscience of the world that they did not rnn lichtly into war but that it was the last resort." "I say the sentiment has changed since the old day, and it is still chang ing. War is being recognized as not in itself a good but an evil. Nations are busy explaining that their armies and armaments are in the interest of pea-e and not of war. In the interest of peace England Keeps a uavy twice as i;r eat as any other nation ou enrth and her vessels police the seas. Russia hurries her million soldiers across two continents that there may be peace on earth, good will among men. Onr own incomparable president advocates an efficent navy so that when we speak for peace in the councils of the nations we may back up our argument if need be with force, so that when we ask for peace we may be in shape to fight for it. The ' big stick'he main tains, is to ba invoked iu the interest of justice aud good will and for the chastisement of the trouble-mater, just as a father might be compelled to buy his peaceloving son a pair of brass knuckles and teach him boxing lessons iu the interests of neighbor hood tranquillity." " Th ancient seer saw truly. The time is coming when nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learu war any more; when having no longer any use for them, 'hey shall beat their swnrdn into plows shares ami their spears iuto pruning hooks" But that day is not yet. There are signs of its dawning. The sun is be neath the Horizon, but it may be a lonz twilight it will not dawn un til'out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of .lebahvah from Jer usalem'. It will not dawn until He will judge between the nations and decide concorning many peoples. That is, the day of peace waits on the day of justice. Righteousness must be realized iu human character, in human institution?, in human law before there can be peace between nations or any general converting of swords iuto plow-shares or of spears into pruuing-hooks. There cau be no agreement between evil and good, no permanent peace by winking at wrong So long sis tho foot of the strong is on the neck of the weak ; so long as the hands of the cruel are red with the blood of the helpless and innocent ; so long as the depraved have power to destroy manhood aud despoil woman hood there can bo no peace that is Dleasing to God or creditable to man. If we shut our eves to crimes against humanity and turn deaf ears to the cry of the wronged, the suffering, the des pairing then is onr peace not a virtue but a vice. If wo rail evil good and 2lazr the crimes of the gr-at and pro- i fit by the dfpoiling of tho defenseless and fea: on ill c'-ttc-ii cain. fawiiine upon the head of the plunderer, then are weot heroes but cravens and de serving the contemnt of all high mind ed men." "We are glad to honor yon today, soldiers of a victorious nation because refusing to enjoy a selfish and in glorious peace, yon have helped to win for your country and for the world a peace that will be permanent, be cause founded upon the impregnable rock of justice. You came with no reluctant step to the help of the Lord and your efforts have contributed to bring forth the law ont of Zion and the word of Jeohvah from Jerusalem.' You have brought perceptibly nearer the day when nation shaU not lift np sword against nation, for you have helped usher in the day of truth and righteousness that must first come." "Once again Jince beginainit the preparation of this talk to you. I have read the sad and humiliating and sick ening story of tin causes which led I up ro ne great civil straggle. I have shuddered as I tho't hc.w near was tho undoing of onr fair and beloved land. A little more and our great United nation had fallen inro many pieces. petty, jealous, mutually suspicious, discredited at homo and abroad. The fetters were being forged that should halt her progress for ever, the mill stone of slavery was being banged about her neck that should yet draw her in the depths of the sea. " "Again and again as I turned the pages or history ir seemed ro me that ine awxoi events 01 the sixties were casting their shadows before. Would not men see and heed0 There was the low rumbling of the gathing storm that shook and trembled, but men laughed and swapped jokes and listened to the song of the siren. But, be not deceived : God is not mocked : for whatsoever a man soweth that shalil he aleo reap. And the same is true of nations. The peoples that have waxed great and made fat their hearts and plundered and oppressed and forgot justice and mercy are one with Nineveh and Tyre.' The wages of national sin. is national death." "You to whom I am speaking know more about my subject than I do, for you lived in those precuant days. You witnessed the increasing boldness of the slave power and the weak, va cillating, comprouuisine policy of the political power. You witnessed the strnggle and the failure to make Ne braska and Kansas slave territory Yon heard with amazement the decis ion of the supreme court of the Unit ed States in the DredScott case.declar ing that a negro was not a man but a thing with no mor rights before tho law than a mule or a watch or a hand saw thus with one stamp of its un holy foot did that august body crush nut the hope from six million hcarts Yonr amazement was turned to indie nation when the law compelled you to become slavechasers, and many, perhaps some of you, said in the spirit if not in the language of tho early heroes of the cross, ' We must obey God rather than men ' lnsticctively you telt that the law was lawless that the law of the land violated the law of mercy, the law of tho heart, the law of humanity, the law of the uni verse.
