All because of- a hungry cow, a new
rope and a sharp knife in the hands of
an angry woman, Morris Ladenberger
is in serious trouble. He was tried last
Saturday under a charge of, assault with
intent, to do great .bodily harm on com
plaint of Mrs. Mathilda Prieb. On the
same day a civil suit was instituted
in the'district court by the complainant
asking for damage of 81000. Laden
berger was discharged by Judge Ratter
man on the first charge and now a war
rant is out for his arrest on the charge
of assault and batter-. The evidence is
conflicting, but it tends to show that
Ladenberger tied his cow to a post near
Mrs. Priebs yard. The cow was devour
ing the grass when Mrs. Prieb appeared
on the scene with a large butcher knife
and cut the rope. Ladenberger asked
for an explanation and became engaged
in a free-for-all in which Mrs. Prieb got
kicked and received a black eye. Laden
berger claims he was attacked and threw
up his feet and arms in self 'defense.

Harpers Weekly: A "doctor's bill of
$2,000 for seven days attendance on the
late Marshall Field strikes some observ
ers as more generous than it should be.
and is the subject of some current com
ment in the newspapers. The whole
subject of extra-big doctors hills is an
active,, and rather a sore, one with laity,
who grope rather blindly after the gen
eral principle that regulates, or should
regulate, the dealings of medical men
with rich patients. Legitimate oppor
tunities of blackmail used to be humor
ously included among the attractions of
the profession of journalism. Perhaps
they belong' to the profession of medi
cine also.". No-one can sny .that it was
not worth $25,000 to the late Mr. Field
to command for a week the services of a
man whom he wanted. From that point
of view the doctor's cnarge may seem
not, nnreasoname, nut wnetner it was
consistent with a doctor's dignity to lift
$2i,000 out of a deceased patient's estate
for a week's work remains still to lie
discussed. Perhaps the doctor's idea
was that the Field estate needed treat
ment, and that to relieve it lawfully of
even 825,000 was a useful medical service.
There is some merit in that idea. Let
us hope the bill will be paid,
Texas Siftings: There is no bravery
like that involved in the forgivnejs of
injuries. The man who forgives has two
victories one. over himself, one over the
person who has injured him. Men are
not slow to appreciate and applaud vir
tncR they arc not so ready to imitate.
They will understand that the suhlimest
human act is that of forgiveness. But
to appreciate a noble act is a great deal
easier than to perform one precisely like
it, just as it is compartively easy to look
upon the sublime heights of a mountain;
but it. requires npowerful, long-eontinued
effort to reach and stand Uon these
heights. The man of meanest capacity
makes himself more than the peer of the
man of the lnftiest capacity, if he for
gives him. He who revenges an. injury
makes himself the inferior, not only of
his enemy, but of all others, because he
has stooped to a base act. Revenge is
generally disproportionately severe, even
if a man's judgment is taken as a
standard, and he who. practices it' has
laid up for himself a long harvest of
regret and remorse, while the man who
forgives is at peace with himself and all
the world, and has transformed his
enemy into a friend.

anything to buy or sell.

Samuel M. Bector, one of the moat
popular young men in Columbus, was
drowned yesterday afternoon while
swimming in the Loup River aouth of
the court house.-
In company .with three other younger
boys he hud swum across the channel of
the river to a sindbar and was return
ing when he was attacked by cramps,
and went down in water about eight feet
deep after calling for' help. Ilia body
was washed .to shallow water about two
blocks down stream where it was re
covered by Clarence Pitman and the
other boys who were with him Al
though he hail not been under water
more than twenty minutes the boys were
unable to resuscitate him and they sent
for E. O. Rector, father of the drowned
young man who drove quickly to the
scene of the accident. The body was
taken directly to the undertaking rooms
of II. Gass where four physicans were
called and pronounced him dead.
Sam Rector hail just returned the
night before from Fort Riley, where he
had been in camp with Company K in
which he was a sergeant. At Fort Riley
he had trouble with his stomach and
was nnnblc to be on duty and it is be
lieved that it was this trouble which was
responsible for the attack of cramps.
Samuel M. Rector. youngest son of
Mr. and Mrs. E. O. Rector, was born at
Guide Rock, Neb., December 14. 1883.
He came to Columbus with his parents
about fifteen years ago, completing' the
course of study in the Columbus schools
graduating from the high, school in 1903.
Ho taught school two years, one year id
Platte county and one year in Hotter.
But being of a mechanical term of mind
he had decided to take up electrical
He was a member and First Lieuten
ant of the local camp of Sons of Veter
ans and a member of the Woodman
' Sam Rector was clean in his personal
habits, ambitious to get on in the world
and his bright, kind disposition made
him a general favorite among the boys
The funeral will be conducted from
the Rector home in South Columbus by
Rev. Munro of the First Congregational
church, at 2:30 p. m' tomorrow (Thurs
day.) The Woodman lodge, the Sons of
Veterans and Company K will attend the
funeral in a body.
The deceased leaves besides his par

StatAJournal-rSfeveral opposing cam
paign committees in the east, apparent
ly tako a hint from the movement for
international disarmament, have ag.eed
to place a limit on their campaign ex-
penilitures this year. The democratic
and republican committees of Mon
mouth county, New Jersey, have agreed
"to abstain from the use of money or
other valuable things to control elec
tions" and one or two other places in
New York and Ohio report similar
truces. The popular sentiment against
contributions has caused slim campaign
purses, and this probably accounts more
than anything else for such arrange

of committees will in time make man

Farm horses are supposed to know a

sight of a load of watermelons in Tom
MoTaggarl'a dray yesterday caused a
farm team from Polk county to break
out the tongue of a buggy and throw the
occupant Mrs. Christensen against a
post in front of Gray's store. Mr. and
Mrs. Christensen had just finished their
shopping at Gray's and Mrs. Christen
sen was sitting in the buggy waiting for
her husband when Tom McTaggart
backed up. to the walk to deliver a load
of watermelons. The team took fright
at the green objects and started to run.
Mrs. Christensen was thrown against a
hitching post, striking it with her chest.
She was taken to a physician and in a
few minutes was able to proceed home.

One of the most beautiful lakes in the

The Overland Route," fi.220 feet above

in by mountain walls, whose rugged
peaks rise in many places to' an addi
tional height of from 2.000 to 4.000 feet.
It is twenty-three miles wide and from
100 to 2,000 feet deep. The ent ire region
surrounding the lake is picturesque al
most beyond description, and a never
ending delight to the eye. This region
is reached only over the Union Pacific

one of the best American plays, high

Schuyler Free Lance: To the charges
that the Columbus Journal man was the
worst case of corporation editor in the
state and that his editorials on the rail-"
roail subject made us wear) he replies:
"Here's a prescription that will cure
that tired feeling yon have. Admit,
that your editorial mileage is an essen
tial part of the pass system, and join the
Journal in demanding a clean sweep of
the whole business. Just a little, self
purification tonic is, what yon need.
You will feel better in a few days." The.
Free Lance editor has ever done railroad
advertising and taken his pay in mileage
and, while not liking the system any
more than ho did a trade-out ' store ad
vertising contract, he was unable to get'
the business- any other way and so sub
mitted. However,- we know that, the
railroad companies look upon tue.whole
editorial mileage plan just as. they do
the pass to the lawyers and politicians
and we are. with the Journal man in
.favor of wiping the mileage and. pass
schemes all out together as they belong
to the same family! The Free Lame
editor has reason to know that, the, rail
road companies nse their editorial
mileage as a sort of bribe liecanse he is
shut off by one of our local, roads be
cause his editorial utterances were not
satisfactory to that road and so the
advertising contracts for this year were
renewed with the Sun and Quill and
not with- the Free Lance. There can
never be any t'rne reform in railro..d
matters till the mileage hook and pass
are of the past. If the Journal man
will stay by that we are with him and
that "tired feeling is already somewhat
relic veil. .
