I. H. Jewell's Body Found.
Journal readers will be interested in
the Stat Journal's article which tells
of the discovery of L. H. Jewell's
"What Ik believed to be the body of
Lather H. Jewell was found near
Liano, Mexico, in an abandoned mine
with the Elcnll crashed. Mr. Jewell
was a brother of Ool. Fred Jewell of
San Dingo. Oal . formerly private
secretary to Governor Poynter of Ne
baska. Mr Jewell had often visited
friends in Nebraska. He disappeared
lat May while on a mining expedi
tion and it is believed he wbb killed
by a robber. He had a larce amount
of money and a gold nuegntt worth
f500 in his nopsession at the time of
his disappearnce. The San Diego
Union of September 12 contains the
following account of the discovery of
the body: Tho body of Anther H.
Jewell, lato of this city, was lonnd in
in abandoned mine near Liano, Mexi
co. Saturday, near whero he was last
seen alive, about the lirst of last May.
The sknll was fractnred and the
clothes were ridled. giving every evi
dence that Mr. Jewell had been mur
dered and robbed. Colonel Fred Jew
ell of this city, a brother of the long
missing mau, recjivtd a telegram last
night that the .identificatisns of tb?
remains was complete.
Lather H. Jewell was last seen near
Liano on May 2, w th a large amount
of cash and a gold nugget worth 100
on his person. Toe location ot the
body, six miles from Liano, indicates
that he nad not traveled a day before
he was murdered,. Tne missing man
was known to have money with him,
bo it is not improbable that he was
followed from Liiano. He was on a
mining trip. After his disappearance
it was suspected that the body might
be in one of the old shafts but tbete
are so many of these around Liano
that it was a hopeless task to search
them all. Colonel Jewell offered
$MK) for the recovery of the body of
Saturday H. G Glore and P.
Barnes came upon the body by the
merest , chance. Tney are metallur
gists and were making a tour of the
Liano mines. Tney found tho body
partly dceouipostd and with tbetkull
crashed by some heavv instrument.
They at once carried the news of
their find to the village, and were told
that the bodv was probably that of
the missing San Diegan. A telegram
was diBpan.bc d to Col Jewell, via
Nogales, Atizona. This message
reached Col. Jewell Sunday night.
The parties m sending it weie un
known to him, so be decided to take
steps fur a positive idenri Ovation bo
fore taking any action. He wired to
M. K. Hopwood. a Southern Pacific
conductor who knew Lnther Jewell
well, also Robert Tovey, a former
employe of the latter, to go from No
gales to Liano to see the body. These
men were familiar with certain pecu
liarities of the misting man, especial
ly regarding his teeth. Mr. Jewell
had retained one of his first eye teeth
and the other had dropped out with
out another taking its place. The
gold fillings were abo such as would
sake identification easy.
. If these men have identified the
body Col. Jewell will have it shipped
here for interment On the other
hand, if they say it is not the body of
Lnther H. Jewell, their word will be
taken as final. But if the body is in
such a condition that they are unable
to decide one way or another regard
ing it. Ool. Jewell will make a trip
to Liaao to investigate the matter

I H. Leavy Takes Examination.
ThlrteenPlatte county teachers, in-cludinirL.H.Leavy,GountySuperinten-
dent, took the teacners examination
at tho court house last Saturday.
The examination was conducted by
Superintendent E. 13. Sherman of the
Columous schools, who is one or tne
three stato examiners. Under the new
law the questions are sent out sealed
from the office of the state superin
tendent and net opened until the
morning of the examination. This is
to prevent collusion between the
county superintendent and any favor
ire teacher and to prevent any d's
liouebt teacher from gaining access to
the questions before the examination.
After the questions are answered
they are sent to the slate board or
examiners to mark. In this case the
answers passed directly to Superin
tendent Sherman to mark. Com
menting on his taking this examin
ation, Superintendent Leavy said to
the editor of the Journal: "I Eat
down with my teachers and took the
examination for a first grade certifi
cate. It was not necessary, as the
state superintendent has written me
that under the ruling of his depart
ment, he will honor the certificate
which I gave to myself last June for
two years yet. I simply want to
prove that I can pass the examination
1 have passed examinations before
under Moncrief Tedro and Boihlei-ner."

Two Good Entertainments
Columbus people have given most
liberal patronage to two attractions
at tho North Opera house within the
last week and the attractions both
merited the patronage.
" Under Southern Skies last Satur
day night was a pretty and a pore
drama made affective by clever acting
and good staging.
"Liberty Belles." Tuesday night
was a real treat to lovers of musical
comedy of the radical type. Pretty
girls, gay costumes, catchy music and
good acting combind to make the per
formance one of the best of ita class
ever seen in Columbus. The Journal
predicted at tho beginning of this sea
son that North Opera house would
attract crowds of out-of-town people
from the branch towns if Manager
Saley would establish a reputation for
nothing but first class plays. And'the
attractions this year, with bnt few
