it developed that the mortgage upon

the mortgage indebtedness at the time

Smallpox in Colombo! .
There are three cases of smallpox in
Columbus, but all are under strict quar
antine, and are all of a very mild form.
Mrs. C D Hccox, who lives at the home
of T. Napier on west 15th street, was the
first ca-e brought to the notice of the
health officers, and quarantine was at
once enforced. Later, Mr. Napier was
stricken by the disease. W. J. Deland
and family, who live on west 17th street
are nlao under quarantine.
While smallpox is a very loathsome
disease and is very in fee tons yet it is
esentinlly a cold weather disease and
does not attain its more virulent form in
warm weather, and as strict isolation is
enforced on the sufferers, there is little
danger of an epidemic.
Some good advice as to the protection
against smallpox is to keep clean, inside
and out, body, dooryard, backyard and
alley, and the danger from smallpox is
reduced to the minimum.

The Manila Cable News stabw that
with a preferential tariff on the importa
tion into the United States of Philinnin
products there is but little doubt that
tbe pineapple canning industry in the
Philippines could be made one of the
most productive that could he intm.
duced. At the present time some of the
nnest pineapples ever erown am haimr
cultivated in Bataan and Bulacan, and
even in tbe red clay soil of Benguet there
are growing plenty of plants producing
this luscious fruit which is in so much
demand in the United States.
The product imported into the United
States is derived from foreign countries
and it is only the size of the fruit at
present grown and the tariff that keep
the industry from assuming great pro
portions in the Philippines. The Phil
ippine pineapples now grown are re
markably suitabie for cenning, as they
are relatively free from fiber.

The Civil History tfPlatUCematy.
In August 1857, tbe counties of Platte
and Monroe were organized. By what
authority does not appear, but Judge
Smith of Fremont issued a proclamation
calling elections for county officers and
the location of county seats. In Platte
county the result was as follows:
Probate Judge, A. B. Pattison; Clerk,
George W. Hewitt: Recorder. J.P.Becker.
Treasurer; V. Kummer; Sheriti, Cyrus
Tollman; J. P., C. B Stillman: Constable.
J. Guter: County commissioners, Gusta
vus Becber, George Spaulding, and
Abram Root.
And in Monroe county:
Probate Judge, Chas. H. Whaley;
Clerk, George W. Stevens; Recorder,
G. E. Yeaton: Treasurer, C. Whaley:
Sheriff, N.Davies; Representative, Lean
der Gerrard: Surveyor. P. Kimball;
County commissioners, H. Peck, C. H.
Pierce, and H. J. Hudson,
The canidates for Territorial Delegates
in Congress were Bird B. Chapman, of
(Ohio?) and Judge Fenner Furguson, of
Bellevne, and B. P. Rankin of Omaha.
At this early date commenced in Cen
tral Nebraska the quiet working of a
power in proposing aud afterwards car
rying nominations and public measures,
which has maintained its prestige with
out much remission to this day, the re
sponsibility of which thing may be laid
at the doors of such chaps as the Ger
rard boys, Ed Arnold, Pete Becker and
so onv In this case, Furguson was the
choice of Monroe county, then quite
strong t the polls, aud a balance power
in the election. Furguson was elected
and the remembrance of what he owed
for it and to whom he owed it, was at
the bottom of the first mail and stage
line of any importance ever granted to
Northern Nebraska. For Leander Ger
rard went down tbe valley on foot with
a petition in hand which everybody sign
ed, and in a surprisingly short time the
mail coaches, were runuing three times
a week from Omaha to Columbus, and
once a week from Columbus to Genoa.
The first election in Monroe county
was also tbe last that was practically
availing for in tbe winter session of the
territorial legislature 18589, a joint pe
tition of the two counties, headed in
double column accordingly by J. Rickly
of Platte and G. W. Stevens of Monroe,
for the consolidation of the two counties,
was largely signed by the people and
the whole area of the two was thence
forth Platte county, and the offices of
the county have since been filled suc
cessively as follows: Probate Judges,
