John McMahon has purchased the
lot on which his business boose stands,
together with the one adjoining, f ormer
ly occupied by W. T. Bickly. In the
coarse of time it ia proposed to make
the entire block brick which will present
n mach better appearance than now.
'Orlando Rose has just completed n
brick building, each, for ChaaReinke
and John Held, who reside eight miles
northeast of Oolumbns, on Shell Creek,
for which he had taken the oontract aad
which he completed ia the very short
space of the month of September. When
the eize of the building ia known, this
fact will be appreciated. Each bnilding
is twenty-eight by thirty-fonr fast, two
stories high, twelve iaobes thick, with
a one story brick kitchen, fonrteea by
twenty feat to each.

paay of Oolnmbns repaired to the Loup
river to give their new fire angina a trial.
Under the direction of John Hnber,
fcremaa, they soon got the engiae in
position aad foreman Brandt soon had
twohaadredand fifty feet of hone ran
out. The wind was blowing n strong
gale from the aomth. the foreman laid
oat the hoae toward the north, and en
gineer Wells directed the watertobe
pat on and the little engine seemed to
do its work well, both on aingle aad
doable streams. Including the length
of hose the engine forced the water
aboat three hundred nod seventy feet,
and from the mouth of the hose about
nti hundred and tweaty feet.
A few auantea after eleven o'clock
last night fire broke oat in theOaanon
barn south of the Leeland hotel,
aad was oompletly destroyed. The
building was formerly used as a livery

except transiently, and there was noth

iron and the toss was not great. The
origin of the fire ia naknown, but the
members of the Naaoe-Merrick eoaaty
A. U. A. were at the lire and will un
doubtedly ferret the matter out.
After a search lasting nearly S weeks,
sheriff Hollister finally secured posasa
aioa of Clara Hunt, the 15 year-old
oaaghter of Eli Hnnt who disappeared
from home September 1. It was sup
posed that she had been brought to Sil
ver Greek by Henry Havens and from
here ehe left with Henry's mother, Mrs.
Tillie Laaigan. It was supposed that
they had gone to Omaha and this turned
out to be a fact. After Havens arrest ia

aad eherin Baamsn of Fremont have
been trying to trace Mrs. Laaigan thro
her numerous relatives, many of whom
reside in Fremont and Omaha, and last
8eturday the women and the girl were
found at Browuell Hall ia Omaha.
Mrs. Laaigan was working in the laund

Ever since the orgaaiaatioa of the
Commercial dub one of the mattota that
haabesarbrought before it ia the encour
agement of the nee of the Kiag road
drag. The fact that better roads leading
iato Columbus were needed was empha
sized, and the olab had a number of
these drags made. According to the in
ventor of this drag, the proper time to
use it is just after a heavy rain, the idea
being to noddle the surface of the road
jast the same as the bottom of a reser
voir is paddled to hold water, and a
very good opportunity to test this pro
see ted itself after ihe three inch and a
hall rain of the last week. Road over
seer John Kendall desired to give the
drag a good trial and put it ia use on the
four miles of the Meridan road, just
north of this city. The result was a
nice smooth road, aad with continued
dragging thia will aoon be a model piece
of road, instead of full of rata and bumps.
The experiemeat on this stretch will
thoroughly test the oMoieacy of the
drag, aa a portion of the road ia under
water when Lost Creak gets high, aad
if the work with the drag will make it
aolid enough to withstand this, aaditia
claimed it will, it will certainly be n
It makes quite a difference as to what
time the ground is plowed for winter
wheat, or at least that is the experience
of John Groesnicklaus. From one piece
of bis wheat yielded thirty-five bushels
to the acre and another field but twenty
bushels. The secret of the large yield
lies ia the fact that the land was plowed
in August and was not planted until
September, when the twenty bushel field
plowed aad pleated immediately. Of
course, it is not always convenient for n
farmer to plow hie land in August, but
the difference in the two yields should
bean incentive for early plowing if possi

And, whereas, satisfactory evidence

The above proelamatioa means much
of Columbus, and besides marking an
important change in the government of
the city it places it in the same class as
Grand Island, Fremont and Hastings.
It also means that Columbus will take
a more important position among Nebr
aska cities aad indicates that the city is
slowly but surely going ahead.
In the matter of city government there
will be n number of changes, one be
ing the addition of another ward, which
means two .more councilman, and will
divide the work of that body among
more members. Under the new regime
the water commissioaer will be elected
instead of appointed, and a raise can be
made inthe salaries of the city officials,
but this is not likely to be done.
Changing to a city of the first class will
not necessarily increase the burden of
taxes, but at the same time places the
city in n position to make improvements
that must eventually come with the con
tinued growth. It will make quite an
amount of work to get everything in
running order to meet the requirements
when the additional officers and the
main change will take place after the
election next spring.
