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. - - Thursday aftarnssa lest the fro ease, paay of Oolnmbns repaired to the Loup river to give their new fire angina a trial.

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.

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 atabb) but of late Las been unoccupied except transiently, and there was noth ing to bumbnt the frame work and sheet 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 Fremont aheriC Hollister of this county 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 ry and Clara was a kitchen maid. They were taken to Oeatral City Saturday night aad Monday sheriff Hollister brought Clara down ham and tamed her over to her pareata who took her home.

It Will he givea away 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 ble. Mr. aad Mm. Byron a Defenbaoh of Sandpoint, Idaho, were ia the city bat Thursday on their way to Texas. They stopped here to aee old friends of former days, both having lived their childhood in thij county but eay they were sadly disappointed in the many changes that have taken place. Mr. Defenbaoh has prospered ia the west, and has held various reeponaibls positions.- Mm. Defenbaugh waa a daughter of the late John Wise. They report Mason Beall aad family, formerly of thia city, as wall aad prosperous ia their new home at Saadpoiat. The High school desires to place the lecture course ia the North open house thia year if it can be done. It is a strong coarse, worthy of a good patronage. 8ince the cost of a ticket remains at $1.50, or thirty cents a number, the peo ple of Columbus will surely give the coarse the encouragement it deserves. Buy a ticket now and encourage the committee of High school students who have the unenviable task of selling the course. The usual Ak-aar-ben erowds passing through this city-from the bra aches are agaia a forcible argument for a new passenger depot for Columbus. Every year the crowds increase, and with bad weather they are packed into the depot like asrdiaea. Even a little extra heavy travel tile up the waitiag roomaand when in a rush like tuis week cornea tnere ia simply no room to take care of them.

Whereas, Section 2 of Article 3, Chap ter IS, Compiled Statute of Nebraska for 1906, provides aa follows: "Whenever say city of the second dens shall have attained a population of mora than Five Taoaeand (1,000) inhab itaate aa hereinafter aaeertained aad omcially promulgated by the census return and enamemtion taken under authority of the lawa of the United States or under the authority of the laws of the 8tate of Nebraska or by authority of the mayor and city council of any such city, the mayor of such city may certify auch fact to the governor, who, upon the filing of each certificate, shall by proelamatioa ao declare and thereafter auch city ahall be governed by provisions of auch act, upon auch pro clamation being made by the governor each and every officer of auch cities shall, withia 90 days thereafter, qaalify and give bonda aa provided by thia act." And, whereas, satisfactory evidence has thia day been filed in the executive office by the mayor, G. W. Phillips, of the city of Columbus, Platte county, in the state of Nebraska, in which it ia proven that the said city of Oolumbaa contains a population of more than five thousand inhabitants, and in accordance with the facta aad the requirements of the law, as above set forth. Therefore, L George Lawaon Sheldon, Governor of the State of Nebraska, do hereby issue my proclamation, and de clare the City of Oolambus a city of the first clem having more thanTive Thous and and leas than Twenty-five Thousand inhabitants, aad subject to the provis ions of an net to provide for the incorpo ration, government, regulation, dutica and powers of all cities having more than Five Thousand aad lees than Twenty- five Thousand inhabitants, and which act waa denominated "Senate File No. 74," duly passed and approved.

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.
