Lieutenant Young has added forty five

This miikes a total of 453 families in
Platte county that will actually need

will average live persons to each, mak
ing a grand total of 2'380 person. View

We learn fiotu Mr. .lames Davis that
Isaac Allison, of this county, met with a
serious loss one night last week. Dur
ing the night his cattle broke out of an
enclosure and it seems gathered to
gether on a iMif of a stable which ap
pear? to have been built so that the
cattle could approach it from the gound
and while on the roof, it gave way, and
the cattle went down, smothering and
killing four valuable horses and one
row. Mr. Davis believes that his loss
cannot be replaced for les than 9525,

There were two gentlemen in our san
ctuiu Monday tiho gave us some account
of their experience in Nebraska years
ago, when the county was new and the
times were hard indeed. Corn was
ground in a coffee mill, for flour and
niuui uk titan used as a subst lute for
eorTee. Goods were hauled from Oma
ha with ox teams. The inhabitants
wore moccasins and haVcst hands work
ed with nothing but squash to eat. Peo
pie worked hard, lived low, kept out of
debt "legged along" aud many such are
now well-to do. If some one who could
"write up" the old times would do so,
it would make interesting reading for

Among the heavy loosen is D. Frank
Davia, editor of the Silver Creek Sand,
and a former Columbas citizen and
business man. His printing plant and
material was almost totally destroyed
without insurance. However the "Sand'
came out on time notwithstanding the
seventvof the calamitv. Below we
prist the story told by the "Sand:"
"Between 12 and 1 o'clock Thursday
morning fire broke oat in the rear of
the bHildiiig occupied by J. 8.' Math
ews, as a pamp and repair ahop. There
was ao stove aad ao fire in the building
aad the origin of the fire is a mystery,
but generally sapposed to be of incen
diary origin. Wbeahe fire started,
the wind was just aboat in the south,
and it looked for a time aa though all
the buildings in the north part of the
block were not worth the proverbial 80
cents, bat shortly the wind changed to
the west, and our fire boys fought the
fire to a finish at the bailding occupied
byMissBoro, adjoining Floyd Bucb
aaaa's store. Da the south it was
stopped in time to save Charlie Spra
gae'e blacksmith ahop.
It was the initial work of our new
fire company, and the boys worked like
veteraaa. It also proved that our much
decried waterworks ere not to be sneez
ed at, aa they aaved several times their
cost. The insurance adjusters who are
here thia moraine; speak in admiration
of the work done and say they can't
aaderetand it. They think more of the
effectiveness of our fire department and
water works than before.
"Everybody worked but father," and
and he worked too, even people coming
in from 7 or 8 miles oat ia the country.
The buildings buraea were L. Tow

by B. E. McLain, and G. W. Merrils,
occupied by himeelf.
Tuesday evening Edward Tschudy,
Anton Hughes and Peter Mostek con
cluded they wanted some booze to cele
brate Christmas, and selected Daniel
Metbeney's saloon for their operations.
While one of the three created a dis
turbance in the front part of the saloon,
the other two entered the rear door and
took what they wanted. The loss was
not discovered by Mr. Metheny, but
Policeman Burke wra looking for
Tschudy, and when he found him he
had the liquor. When he was placed
under arrest Tschudy told Burke about
taking the liquor and implicated his two
companions. They were placed under
arrest and the hearing will be held be
fore Coanly Judge Batterman. Tschudy
is serving a term in the county jail on a
sentence imposed for disturbing the
peace, and when he was given some
privileges he made hie escape and got
into the present scrape.
