Nebraska presents a Rood record. Her
population will now exceed one hundred
and twenty-three thousand. She sup
ports 781 public schools, 42 periodicals,
181 churches, and only 60 persons con
fined in prison.
The law of Illinois requires all thresh
ia? machine tumbling rods to be boxed,
and it is stated that in consequence of a
failure to comply with this law eighty
three persons in that state have been
killed or maimed for life.
A company has been formed at Fre
mont for the purpose of digging for coal.
The company are now eagaged at work
ten or twelve miles northwest of Fre
mont, and feel quite confident of success,
aa they have found a three inch vein aad
etroag indications of more.
Preparations are bow 'being aoade to
bring to n public sale about 50,000 acres
of laad belonging to the Pawnee reserva
tion. The lands which will remain un
sold are mostly of an excellent quality,
but 50,000 acres taken off will narrow
down their range and confine them to
much closer boundaries, and anyone
acquainted with the Indian character
knows that he wants "heaps" of land,
and unless he can have a large range will
be dissatisfied, and, like a wild animal,
ek a new home.
As potatoes are scarce and corn meal

receipt for hulling corn. We can eat
Mbog and hominy" anyhow: One quart
of etroag lye, prepared by pouring warm
water apon a peck or more of ashes; add
two quarts of boiling water to it, and put
in the corn; let it boil until the hulls
begin to start, which you can determine
by taking out a few kernels and washing
them in cold water. Skim ont all the
corn; rinse ia two or three waters; put
it into cold water, and let it boil ap;
tare off that water so as to extract all
the lye; fill ap with boiling water, and

since it sever failed to keep abreast of
the lively competition. Political fac

those engaged in the business. A noa

Monday morning, Charles E. Mat
thews, one of the pioneer residents of
Columbus, died at St. Mary's hospital,
aot being able to withstand the shook
of the operation he passed through the
day before. Mr. Matthews was bora in
London, Canada, December 14, 1833, and
was married to Elizabeth Hannan in
1859. In 1869 they removed to Colum
bus, where they have since made their
home. For many years Mr. Matthews
was engaged in blacksmithiag, his ahop
being located at first where the Oolam
bus Boiler mill now stands aad later on
Thirteenth street. Mr. Matthews is
survived by his wife and two children,
George D. Matthews of Enid, Okla.,
and Mrs. G. L. McKelvey of Fallarton.
For a aumber of years Mr. Matthewa
has been in poor health aad he was
taken to the hospital with the hope that
the surgical skill might prolong his life,
but his condition and advanced aged, 76
years, made it impossible for him to re
cover. The funeral will be held Thurs
day afternoon at 3 o'clock from the
Presbyterian ohuroh, being conducted
by Rev. Hayes, the pastor.
The Lincoln State Journal has the
following, to say regarding a former
Platte county resident who has made his
mark in the world: Charles T. Magoon,
former -citizen of Lincoln and aow gov
ernor of Cake, is said to. have decided to
enter into a matrimonial engagement
after many years of bachelorhood. Hie
friends in Lincoln have not been appris
ed of his engagement, and they doubt the
correctness of the report. Milss Hin-
shaw. writing from Cuba to his home
paper, the Richland (la.) Clarion, aaya:
"The Cuban capitol or palaoe, occupied
by Gov. Charles E. Magoon, both In an
official capacity and as a residence, is on
the Obispo. This palace was formerly
occupied by ex-President Palma, who
since the insurrection has settled on a
cattle farm in the eastern end ef the
island. Governor Magooa'a marriage to
a Cuban lady of high family has recent
ly been announced."
Dan Bray of this city won the diamond
medal for the interstate championship at
Kansas City last week. His nearest
competitor was Dick Lindermana, who
also broke fifteen straight, and in the

through the tournament, except ia the
challenge event, which was shot on the
second day of the toarney in the rain,
when Nebraska lost to Kansas City by
the score or 89 to 93. W. D. Townsend
