D. Frank Davis, an old timer in Co'
iumbus, editor, postmaster, and lawyer,
and who is now editing a rattling good
local paper in Silver Creek, says in an
ewer to queries why he adopted the
name "Sand" for his publication as fol
lows: This paper was named Sand be
cause we knew it would take sand to run
a paper in a town which had been a
graveyard for newspapers. We made
good and were making a living, thanks
to the good people of the town and
country, when the fire struck us. We
lost the profits of three years' labor in a
few minutes, but we still have the "sand"
and will make good, so don't worry
about us. We need your patronage and
will work to deserve it. Silver Creek
needs a paper and we will furnish it.

Merv Kuntzelman and C. L. .Baker
report thai woiye are playing thavoc
with chickens and young bogs in the
neighborhood just north of town. Last
Thursday Mr. Kuntzelman chased a
large gray wolf out of his yard, and the
animal was so hold as to loiter about the
place, but remaining a safe distance from
the muzzle of a shot gun. He has lost
much, small stock through the work of
these pests, and the other day together
with a Journal reporter it was decided
for a general round-up in the near future.
The town is long on hounds and enough
people can be had for the chase by say
ing the word, and a general "cleaning-up"
of the coyote will be the result.
There are many mean tricks and jokes
played on some one every day of the
year but the very meanest to be thought
of is one to be played oa an editor or a
preacher. The editor of the Lindsay
Post is the very latest victim, and says:
"The editor was greatly surprised last
Thursday morning on going out to his
chicken coop to find the door open and
five of his nicest fowls missing. Not
surprised alone at finding the chickens
missing, as there are anch tilings hap
pening in every town, bat surprised
when we were informed as to who did
the work. I am told that it has base a
passtime with a few of our citizens for a
number of years to have a chicken fry
several times during the season, and to
get their birds through this dishonest
method, thinking it sport I am really
at a loss to know what steps to take in
this matter, or whether to pass it up as
a cheap joke, as I know every maa that
took part in the deal, three reliable gen
tlemen having given me their Barnes. It
is not the loss of the chickens so much
as it is the fact that Lindsay.bss men

All Columbus people know Prof.

faactioaa. He is now located at North

from the Tribune, n paper at that place,
says of him: The writer believes in
speaking the word of appreciation and
totaisintsat desires to commend the
work aad painstaking' care of Prof.
.Garliaab, an instructor of innsic in our

surprise that the children took hold of
the musio so readily,' remarking that
the eoatraat with that of preceding!-

therefor. To me the result in
measure, at least, is to be
attribatad to the instruction received
under the direction of Prof. Garliseh in
the public schools, and for this I am
heartily glsd. All of us recognize how
incieuaingry useful, we might almost
say aeosssary, is the ability to sing or

Governor Mickey made tha list act of
his administration the issuing of a'fuH
and complete pardon to Maa, Lena Lillie
She wa serving a, Hftv sentence ia th
penitentiary for the. supposed murder of
her husband, Harvey Liilie. at David
City. 'The governor had given this case
particular'stucly, and the flood of politi
cians and prominent people working for
her liberation, had much.to.do with the
oake.x She had served about two yearsof
her sentence. The following history of
the crime, for which she was convicted,
is given below, taken from the Bellwood
Gazette, published at the home of her
parents, and formerly her old home:
"The murder of Harvey Lillie occurred
in David Cityia October, 1903 His wire
was arrested soon afterwards, and her
trial a few months later resaltedin her
conviction and sentence 'for life. Prior
to that she bad, been out on bail. .She
was kept at David City until .after the
supreme court had twice decided against
her. Then she was brought here. Alf
though Mrs. Lillie did not take the stand
in her own defense or attempt to explain
away the charges. There has1 always
been a large contingent of Nebraakans
who do' not believe her guilty, and
regard her aa the victim of a great wrong;
Many of these have been active ia bring
ing pressure to bear upon the governor
and their efforts have been supplement
ed by attorneys and friends and rekv
tives. The mother of Mr. Lillie has
always insisted that down in her heart
she has a conviction that Mrs. Lillie did
not kill her husband, and she is anxious
that a pardon issue. Mrs. Lillie hsf
been well treated at the prison. One
correspondent who has visited her saya
her room is more like a parlor' than a
cell, and that she has been given uunsua)
freedom, being permitted to take long
walks attended, and otherwise been
favored above others. She slill stoutly
maintains her innocence, and has im
pressed many besides the governor with
the justice of her cause. The bearing
this afternoon before the governor is
being warmly contested, protest sgainat
as well as appeals for a pardon being
made.' On behalf of Mrs. Lillie it is in
sisted that the evidence was not con--clusive,
and that an insufficient motive
was shown. That motive was that she
killed him to get money to gamble on the
local board of trade. It is iusisted that
in view of the very cordial relations ex
isting between hnsband and wife, a fact
uncontradicted, this i.s improbable espe
cially on the partpf a -woman or Mrs.
Lillie s refinement. It is also contended
mat tue evidence is entirely -circum
stantial, and that it does not conclusive
ly prove her guilt. On the other hand
it is contedned that the woman has had
a fair trial, that a jnry of intelligentmen
in her home connty hud reluctantly con
victed her, and that the supreme court.
after tvrb hearings, bad held that the
evidence was sufficient to uphold a con-'
vie t ion and that she bad a fair trial."
Mrs. Peter Bender sr. for more thsn
21 ytars a continions resident of- Hum
phrey, died at her home in this city last
Saturday morning at 6:45 o'clock after
an illness of short duration. Mrs. Ben
der, seemingly, was possessed of a strong
and hearty constitution and not with
standing her advanced age she bad every
appearance of being able to live for sev
eral years yet. But when the ravages
of disease once took hold of her it was
soon apparent that her constitution, due
to old age, was not strong enough to
free her. She passed away peacefully,
surrounded by her lifelong partner aad
her children, happy in the thought that
she was heir to all that is good in the
world above us. Catherine Mailman
was born in Udenbauaen, Germany, on
April 17, 1832, consequently at the time
of her. death ahe was 74 years, 8 months
ann 12 daya old. Deceased was an act
ive member of the Christian Mother's
society of St. Francis Catholic church,
and during her entire life she has dis
played a truly Christian spirit, always
exemplifying her Christianity by deeds
of sisterly love. The funeral was vheld
Monday forenoon from St.- Francis
oharch and the remains were laid to
rest in St. Francis cemetery. Hum
The hearing of A. Heagey, charged
with statutory rape, was held before
Judge Ratterman last week and it was
discovered the crime was committed in
Merrick county. The Judge discharged
the prisoner and the father of the girl
went to Central City to secure a
warrant in Merrick county. But as
soon as Heagey was discharged he gave
a bill of sale of all his belongings, 'to
another party and left at once for Ger
many on the first train. If be had re
mained he would undoubtedly have
paid the penalty, as there was no doubt
as to his guilt.

fore upon no estsblishsd beam, with the
result that at certaia large post oflees
rates i are 'lever' than at many small
offices; that taa oharga for email bases
is ia many eases higher than that which
ahonld.be nmde. for large boxes; that
rents are sometisMS collected at the
saaae rate for boxes of all sizes; aad that
at post offloeu of like elass, ia the same
vicinity, equipped with similar boxes,
rente are collected at widely different
rates. In order to mmedy these condi
tions aad to provide a definite and satis
factory rule for the collectioa of box
rents tbe4 following schedule, based upon
the kind and capacity of boxes, and the
gross receipts at post offices, has been
adopted and will be strictly adhered to
by the-Department in the establishment
of all box rent rates, from and after Jan
nary 1, 1907: . .
Under this order box rents in Colum
bus will be sixty cents aad 91 for three
months. This is quite a .raise and hss
oreated a good deal of dissatisfaction,
but the postmaster is not to blame for it,
exoept that! perhaps herotofore he baa
not charged enough for box teats. The
highest prises for box rente, are charged
in Chicago and Nsw York city, where
large boxes rest for Pfi per year.
