On Thanksgiving, a team belonging to
a Mr. Hyden, contrary to the usual quiet
of the day, ran off and colided with Dr.
Stillman's drug store, making a hole in
the front, and racking the corner of the
building considerably. We didnt ascer
tain what amount of "damages" Mac
claimed, but we have no doubt that he
was very reasonable.
B. S. Dayton informs us that a meeting
is soon to be called in the Humphrey
school district to .take measures to build
a school house; also, tht a county bridge
now fipass Tracy creek near his dwelling
on the road from Oolumbus to Madison.
These are important matters to that
neighborhood. They show the enter
prise of the citizens of Humphrey pre
There are numerous complaints against
the condition of the public highway be
tween Columbus and the south side of
the Platte river in other words, the
bridge across the Loupe is by no means
what it ought to be. The trade that
now comes from south of the Platte is
going to slip away from us if we do not
make a permanently safe crossing over
Experiments in raising cotton in Kan
sas have been made the past year with
entire success, and the crop for that
locality is urged upon the farmers as one
that will prove profitable. In many
places in Nebraska the same experiment
has been tried with good results. Two
years ago since we were shown a fine
specimen of cotton raised in a town lot

Max Betterton, of the manual train

table for Prof. Britell.
Notwithstanding the present epidem
ic, the attendance during the last
months was larger than that for the
same month a year ago.
The Thanksgiving football game be
tween Columbus and Madison resulted
in a victory for Madison by a score of 6
to 4. The attendance was very good
and the boys netted a neat little sum for
the benefit of the Athletic association.
Much disappointment was expressed
on account of Father Tihen in being un
able to fill bis engagement under the
auspices of the High school lecture
course, as he was very sick at his home

At the regular meeting of the beard ef
education Monday evening the only
matter of importance, outside of routine
business that was taken up, was the sit
us ion in the city regarding email pox,
diphtheriaand scarlet fever. From the
beginning the board has been working
in harmony and under the direction of
the board of health in their endeavor to
stamp out these diseases, and especially
toward preventing the school rooms
from being a source from which they
could spread. All the buildings are
taken care of according to beet known
sanitary methods and fumigated regu
larly, so 1 hey are the safest place for
the children. Whenever a child shows
any symptoms whatever of sickness
they are at once sent home by the teach
er and not allowed to return until the
physician permits it. Under present
conditions the board and faculty of the
school feel they are doing everything
that can be done, and with the co-operation
of the parents, expect to maintain
the present healthful conditions of the

F. T. Walker returned from Texas
last Saturday evening laden with sam
ples of vegetation produced by that lo
cality. Among the specimens were sev
eral bunches of oranges still hanging to
the branches of the trees which looked
rather out of place here in December.
Samples of sugarcane, which make the
ordinary kind look like dwarfs, are also
exhibited. J. C Barnes, who
panied him, remained in Texas to
around a large party of land-seekers,
who left Columbus Tuesday of this
week for Houston aad Galveston. 1
During the last week the quarantine

While out bunting last Friday, P.O.

came very nearly costing him the sight
of one of his eyes. He stooped down to
pick up a dead quail, and did not notice
a stem of grass protruding upward, until
it penetrated his eye, inflicting an in
jury that required medical attention.
Mr. Cunningham is nursing a very sore
optic, but at present no serious results
The favorable weather has given eon
tractor Parker an opportunity to peek
work on the new T. M. O. A. building,
and the walls are now nearly to the top
