Do Not Hesitate
To bring us small repair
jobs because you may
think that we would not
care to be bothered with
them.
Why we've none hund
reds of five cent jobs
and glad to get them to
do, too.
Glad to have the oppor
tunity to be useful to
our customers.
We fix a broken brooch
as willingly as restoring
the wrecked internal
economy of an expensive
watch.
We are here to serve the
public, and we ask the
public to bother us all
they like.

Commits Suicide!
"Mrs. Jappa Skoog has committed
suicide" was the news that spread
through our city daring the noon
hour today. A is well known Mrs.
Skoog has been in poor health for
many months, and was operated on at
the hospital at Columbus a few
months ago. She has been suffering
from melancholia in an aggravated
form. The nurse who has been with
her since she came to Genoa, went to
Omaha with Mrs Nels Skoog. When
Mr. Skoog went to dinner tiday he
found the doors locked, and imme
diately called M. S. Starmer to his
assistance and forced an entrance to
the house where they found Mrs.
Skoog in an unconscious condition.
She lived only ten minutes after she
was found. The deed was committed
with carbolic acid A cup was round
on the table which emelled strongly
f the acid. Mrs Starmer, a close
neighbor remembers of seeing Mrs.
Skoog throw a bottle out of doors and
afterward saw her pick it up aad take
it to an out house in the vault of
whioh it was found. There is no
question but what the deed was caused
by the condition of the mind which
was effected by a disease of the
nerves. Thn deceit d leave a husband

Cornlea is to have a weekly paper,
and the first fssue will make its appear
ance next week. John Koza the popu
lar young druggist of Cornlea will be
editor, and the paper will be called the
Cornlea Independent. The business of
Cornlea has grown to such large pro
portions that the citizens feel that they
should have a paper of their own, and
while it would be impossible for them
to support a paper sufficiently for any
one to buy a plant ami eetnblish a re
gular office there, they have done the
next best thing the paper will be
printed in The Democrat office at this
place each week and sent to Cornlea to
be mailed. To start with the paper will
be a six column eight page paper.
Con Heesacker, rural mail carrier on
Route No. 3 out of Humphrey, is nurs
ing a bsdly cut and bruised head since
Monday as a result of his wagon being
tipped over a few miles south of Corn
lea. Mr. Heesacker was driving one
horse and he had the fills attached to
the wagon in such a way as to enable
the horse to walk on one side of the
road and the wagon would follow the
wagon tracks. The horse was used to
driving on the opposite side from which
he was traveling and in trying to get to
the other side of the road, on account
of the deep ruts in the road, the wagon
was tipped over. It appeaas that Mr.
Heeeacker's head went through the
glass in the side of the wagon and was
badly cut and scratched although the
horse stopped as soon as the wagon
went -over. Mr. Heesacker unhitched
his horse and started back to Cornlea,
but he was bleeding so profusely that he
became two weak to go further, so be
hailed a farmer near by who took him
in his wagon to Cornlea where the
wounds were dressed.
la Appeal.
To My Dear People:
I have noticed with keen disappoint
ment that Gongregationlists are not
present in great numbers at our meet
ings. While I do not mean to judge
anyone, I beg you to allow no ordinary
excuse to interfere with your attending
these nightly meetings and contribut
ing by your presence and your sympa
thy and your prayers to their success.
This is the opportunity of Christian
people of Columbus. God has sent to
us accredited servants, whose labors he
has abundantly blessed in other places,
and they will be blessed here. I covet
for you the spiritual growth that comes
to one who labors in the vineyard and
makes sacrifices. Do you wish your
boys and girls to come into the king
dom? Ihen attend these meetings and
lead them to the place where God's
spirit is in special manner at work. Are
your children already saved? Then for
the sake of your neighbors and friends,
for the sake of those who have gone in
the way of sin, for the sake of the
young men and women who are at the
parting of the ways and stand undecid
ed, will you not forego sotnetuiug of
ease, or comfort, or profit and "come up
to the help of the Lord?" We need
your presence; we need your construc
tion of spiritual power and influence.

Oa the subject we have
record. The first item Is the
of a pubsie schools ateetii

G W. Steyeas were elected a school

words:

presence of each other, " showiag how
scrupulously coascieatioas mea were
in these para primitive days; whea
they could swear to ao greater they
swore to themselves.
The first eaumeratioa was aside) ia
October 1800. Showing 46 males and
20 females of which whole number, 35
were east of the Meridian aad 31 west
of it. On the 10th of December I860.
the town board made a ptessat of the
old Uompaaya House to ska District
for a school hoase. It w
log hoase with gra roof of whioh we
have spokea aad whioh stood oa the
Breamer Brewery block. Its edaca
ional honors were brief, for oa the
23rd of Maroh following it was sold
to Charles A. Speieo for 9J0.5S aad
at a later date converted to stove wood.
The firrt school order ever drawn was
to G. W. Stevens for 967.45 for teaching
at $1 per day.
The school records of those dava
bring out few names to the surface.
The reason is plain. For reasons best
known to themselves, Becker, Stillstan,
Outer, Browner, Betake and Others were
those days a set of incorrigible bache
lors, though in later times they re
pented and are now bringing forth
works meet for repentanos.
Stevens was the teacher and the
Bickleys, Weavers, Wolfels and Ernsts
were the pupils. From out of town
there were also some active learners,
among them the Barnums from over the
river and the Hayes "from the oreek
over." It is well remembered that
George was an enthusiast though not a
fanatic on school matters, in those
days, and it is well known that be still
holds bis own in that regard, unchange
ably the same when he lived on parched
corn and walked three miles to school,
then, and when he eats strawberries
and cream and rides in a buggy now.
It is a proper tribute to record in this
connection, that it is to the seal and the
gifts of G. W. Stevens in the early day,
we are chiefly indebted for preparing
the way and laying the foundation of
our present High School property of
which we are all proud.
From the public records I take barely
enough to show, in a general way, the
progress of the common sobools of our
county.
In 1861, school youth 151; school fund
$157.51; in 1863, school youth 159; school
fund, $469.47; in 1864, school youth 167;
school $385.36; in 1865, school youth
198: school fuud $821.80; in 1868, school
youth, 207; school fund, $737 37: in 1667,
school youth, 267; school fund. tl,45&91.
Here the railroad day begins, and the
figures go up quite regularly and by
large additions, until we have in nine
years this result; in 1876, school youth,
1,667; school fund, 918.742J2. And we
now have the proud record of 48 organ
ized school districts, 32 good school
houses, which, with their sites and fur
niture, are valued at about $37,000.
And we have 50 teachers, whose aggre
gate salaries for a year is over 67,000.
Of the Snnday Schools of the county
we have the following account:
The first school of whioh we have any
record is that organized ia Columbus
in the spring of 1865, with I. N. Taylor
superintendent; G. W. Stevens eecre
tary and librarian; and H. J. Hudson,
C. A. Speice, M. Weaver and Johannab
Bauer, directors.
Like the day school it wss conducted
in the new Town Hall, since bought by
the church of Latter Day Saints; and
moved to its present site. Many came to
this school from the surrounding coun
try. With great liberality the people
contributed as much as $80 to purchase
a library. The school became too large
for the room, and this fact wss at the
bottom of the building of the Congre
gational Aurcb, at a time there wss
neither protestant preacher nor church
organization in the county.
As the progress of the Sunday School
cause io the eounty is of comparativaly
recent dnte, I give only the following
sonopais of its present condition:
The churches in the county ia the
order of their organisation and in their
leading facts are as follows:
