done for him. . The story of the

property including some nnhnsked
corn in the field. Ha returned with
his wife and started to husk it

Gas for Columbus,
An ordinance granting to George A
Scott, C. J. Garlow and O. T. Roen, their
heirs rnd assigns, the right to manufac
ture and sell gas for power, fuel and
light and such other purposes to which
it may be properly applied to oonstrnot
gas works, buildings, tanks, reservoirs
and machinery, to lay pipes on and along
streets and alleys and public grouses
and to build man-holes on the pipe-lines;
to fix rates for the use of gas for all pur
poses to which it may be applicable."
This is the title of an ordinance which
passed to its second reading at the coun
cil meeting last Friday night and which
promises gas for Columbus, if it passes,
to be furnished by a company composed
of local business mew who can be de
pended upon to make' the enterprise a
The maximum rate for gas fixed in the
ordinance is 81.50 per thousand cubic
feet, and extensions are to be built when
ever the income from said extensions
guarantee an income of 4 per cent on the
investment. The ordinance provides for
the commencement of the plant withiu
90 days, and the promoters declare that
they have provided every safe-guard for
the public interest. If the ordinance
passes, a company will be incorporated
and local investors will be given an
opportunity to buy stock.
C. J. Garlew, one "of the promoters of
the enterprise .said to a Journal repre
sentative: "Gas for fuel and light under
our plan will save Columbus citizens
many dollars and we propose to push it
as fast as possible."

Gnat Crowds Attending the Lyon
The big tabernacle was the scene on
Sunday of three remarkable meetings,
the like of which was never seen before
in our city. The address on The Great
Fight brought out in the afternoon a
large audience of men. For an hour Mr.
Lyon spoke on the battle every man has
to wage against, his own lower nature.
Itis one of the most scathing indict
ments of the vices and sins of our day,
but was presented with a spirit of kind
ness as well as intense earnestness.
Frequently the crowd broke forth in
applause, and at the close it was a most
thrilling sight to see the entire audience
spring to their feet in token of their pur
pose to stand for a better life. The solo
by Mr. Patterson. "Tell Mother I'll be
There," was also well received. The
evangelist stated that he had but started
upon his theme and would continue the
address next Sunday at the same honr.
At the morning service Mr. Lyon gave
a most able and scholarly address on the
Lordship of Jesus as the basis for a great
spiritual awakening. He has recently
written a book upon this subject which
has already gone into the third edition.
The central truth of the sermon was that
many have professed to receive Christ as
their Savior from the guilt of sin that
have never acknowledged Him as the
Lord and Master of their entire lives.
The speaker then proceeded to apply this
great principle to modern domestic, edu
cational, social, commercial and political
In the evening the great building was
filled to the doors. Many had driven in
from the surrounding country and neigh
boring towns. A chorus of more than a
hundred voices led by Mr. Patterson
filled the platform. The volume of song
could be heard for many blocks. The
favorite pieces seem to be "Just Lean on
the Arms of Jesus" and the famous Glory
song. The solo, "Would you Believe"
was also very effective. Mr. Lyon spoke
on "The Great Election." He pictured
the choice between Jesus and Barabbas.
It is a choice everyone must makt. At
the close many men and women came
forward in response to the invitation to
those who would accept Christ as their
personal Savior and Master.
In the after meetings there is nothing
that could be termed excitement, but the
most thoughtful and seriour spirit pre
vails. In a few words the evangelist
explains what it is to be a christian and
the steps into the christian life. During
the season of prayer each one is urged to
call personally upon God for help and
pardon, and to make a definite surrender
to Christ. Those who make confession
of their purpose to begin the christian
life are given the blue button which Mr.
Lyon uses in his work, a badge with the
emblems of the cross and crown signify
ing Christ as both Savior and King.
These buttons are becoming much in
evidence on the streets.
The meetings will continue every even
ing except Saturday. On Thursday
afternoon Evangelist Lyon will speak to
women only. And on Friday night there
will be a special talk on the "Deadline in
Local Keglsters Report for April,
Thirteen births and thirteen deaths
for Columbus and vicinity.

The Military History of FlattoCoty.
There is another department of oar
history which we will dignify with the
title of Military. For we have onr little
"wars and rumors of wars."

eloquent chief Know, O white man, that
there is enmity between mo and thee,
have been tbe standing motto of all

insulted and threatened, until their in
solence became insufferable, and the
governor of the territory called upon
the Militia to chastise them. Platte
county furnished more than 50 of the
little army of 300 that pursued the fu
gttive criDe and overtooK tnem at e
creek afterwards called Battle Creek, in
memory of the event. Without a battle
however, the Beds succumbed, and were
permitted, on promise of good behavior,
to return to their home below Fremont.
This "Pawnee war" occurred in July
A number of little parleys occurred
during tbe next few years after the
tribe occupied their new quartern on
the Loup. Such was that, for illustra
tion, when Quinn, six miles below Co
lumbus shot an Indian dead whom he
canght the third time' after warning
him, in the act of steeling grain. The
Reds rushed down from Genoa ia large
numbers, armed to tbe death, and de
manded the slaver. Bnt Columbus and
the big road rushed down too, armed in
like manner and refused to deliver
Quinn. The matter was finally adjust
ed by the sacrifice to Pawnee Justice of
a penny and six sacks of dour.
A similar affair occurred at Barnnm's.
Not Barnum himself but someone in
his employ. When the avengers come,
Barnum was not immediately at hand,
and tbe terrified family and neighbors,
present ouly in small numbers, were
about delivering over not the' slayer but
a whole cart load of floor and goods,
when suddenly Barnum appeared oa

rors properly goes before my account
bat must be omitted" The horrors of
tho west and south, some of them aa
near to ue as Kearney and the Blue had
for weeks filled our valley with pain
ful apprehensions. But not until the
"Looking Glass Meadow Massacre" had
we realised the possibilities of our situa
tion. Then pillage, wounds and death
opened onr eyes. Pat Murray had a
hay making camp on tbe Looking Glass
near Genoa. Mrs. Murray accompanied
her husband and they tented on tho
meadow. One evening when Pat was
absent at hie farm, at the sunset hour,
there rode down from the hills a squad
of 25 Sioux into the camp. They enter
ed peaeably and asked for food and Mrs.
Murray supplied them. This done, they
began to nntie the team from their
fastenings. The men resisting, in n
moment, in the twinkling of an eye,
their deadly weapons were in play. An
old man was instantly brained and
scalped. Adam Smith, Murray's broth-er-in
law, fell pierced with eight arrows;
others in like manner yielded to tho fa
tal poisoned arrows. Mrs. Murray with
hay fork in hand defending the proper
ty received the barbed arrows bnt not
in any vital organ. Only one escaped n
boy who hid beneath a pile of hay.
The report of the distress being heard
at a distant farm, parties came in the
darkness and carried away the dead and
dying. Mrs. Murray had crawled away
a distance into the tall damp grass and
spent the lonely night in sgony of pain
and horror. She yet lives and is here
today, but she will never fully recover
from tbe shock of that hour or the poi
son of those arrows.
