your misfortune. Piky kas been demo
cracy's maaoott ia Platte county for
upwards of thirty years. He was ita
oracle at the time Curly Caldwell was
elected eneriff, but that is a part of Ne
braska history. John 6. Maker was a
little boy when his father took a home

barefooted to school ia cummer, walking
a mile aad a half aad taking a licking
when he came horns late without bring

He crew aa a stalwart democrat, for
which phenomenon he kas never been
able to give a coherent reason. When

At the adjorned meeting of the city
council Taesday evening, for the purpose
of considering the redietrioting of the
eity, .Ooaaoilmsa Johannes introduced
an ordinance which will repeal the old
ordinance passed March 19, 1877, eree'
ing three wards, and also provide for
four Wards. The proposed redistnetieg
will be ss follows, subject to the pro
bability of some minor changes. The
irst warn will iaclade all territory east
of Washington avenue oa both sides of
the Untie PaerBc railroad, the tteoond
ward will hsdude everything west of
Washington avenue aad south of the
UsuM'lftseene trieka, the Tiird1 ward

For the last six months, ending Dec
ember 31, 1907, Uncle Sam has been hav
ing all the outgoing mail from the var
ioas poatomces weighed, so that con
gress may have the information. - Par
lag that period the Columbus post oBee
handled 48,74 pounds and three ounces,
or over twenty-ooe toon of outgoing
mail, divided sa follows: July, 7,182
pounds aad two ounces; August, 8,352
pounds aad 11 ounces; September, 6,181
pounds sad 15 ounces; October, 6,841
pounds und 4 ounces; November, 6,340
pounds aad 5 ounces; December, 7,86
pouuds aad five ounces. This does not
include the incoming mail, which is
always much heavier than the outgoing
in places of this sise. When one stops
to think that this is made up largely of
letter mail and that the weight of each
is less than aa ouaee.it will be seen that
the number of pieces is considerable.
If Columbaa people will number their
houses, there is every probability that
the post office department will grant the
request made for an additional carrier
for thia city. Tfaie matter has been up
before the department during the laat
year, aad the inspector did not recosa
msad it because of the lack of numbers
an the houses. Let the Commercial
dab take thin np aad urge the people to
place aumbers on their reidences, there
by giving them better mail service and
furnishing steady employment for an
other reaideat of the city.
