The Oolambas 'Game and Protective
association is the name of a Columbus
organization which was launched at a
meeting held at L F. PhiUipps' store
Monday evening. As its name indicates
it is composed of those who are lovers of
the rod and gun, and its object is to
replenish and protect the present game
birds and fish of this locality. The tem
porary organization elected O. B. Speice
chairman and L. F. Phillipps secretary.
A committee to draft by-laws, consisting
of G. W. Turner, H. A. Phillipps, A. L.
Bollin, O. V. Cmmpbell.and George Fair
child, was appointed and after adopting
the name for the association, the follow
ing permanent officers were elected:'
Dan Bray, president; G. W. Viergutz,
vice president; G. B. Speice, treasurer;
L. F. Phillipps, secretary. Dan Bray, A.
L. Bollin, L. F. Phillips, C. J. Carhg
aad Will Swader were appointed a com
mittee, with power to act, to select suita
ble places and to liberate twelve pairs of
pheasants, purchased of Lee Rollin, the
time and place the birds are liberated,
and also the game laws relating to these
birds, be published jin the county papers.
The association offers a standing reward
for the arrest and conviction of anyone
found guilty of violating the state game
law regarding pheasants and also unlaw
fully fishing with nets or seine. It has
been evident that sooner or later game
birds and fish in this locality would be
exterminated, and no one realized it
more than the men in this movement,

The other day one of our townsmen
went to one of the hardware stores to
purchase some nails. The clerk wrapped
them up and laid them on the counter
and the two engaged in conversation.
While thus engaged a young lad from
the country "gobbled" the nails and
started forborne, but he did not get far
from town until the owner captured him
and aeeured his sails.
An eastern paper pays the following
compliment to the country pram of Ne
- breaks: If there is anything of which
the people of Nebraska ought to feel
proud, it is the excellence of the state
press, and if anyone going to that state
will look into its country papers he will
be satisfied that he is bound for any
thing but a wilderness without education
and good newspapers.
We see that our county clerk has com
menced to enlarge his office. This is a
move in the right direction for the busi
ness of this omoecsn no longer be con
fined to one small room. The oBly
rooms now unoccupied in the court
house are those in the jail. We can
boast of a jail, and can refer with pride
to the fact that it has contained fewer
criminals from our own county than any
other jail in the state, consideriag the
number of years it has, been built.

The prompt action of the Columbus
fire department last Thursday afternoon
saved one of the best business blocks in
Columbus from destruction. Ed Brad
ley, porter at John Janing's barber shop
was cleaning the bath tubs with gasoline,
aad as he went to the large five gallon
can to fill a bottle, stepped on a parlor
match, and an explosion followed and
the back room was a mass of flame in an
instant. The loss will be in the neigh
borhood of 92,000, which was well in
sured. The plate glass windows were
broken end the interior of the shop,
mirrors, chairs and fixtures, were dam
aged beyond repair. While this is quite
a misfortune for Mr. Janing, he showed
true pluck by opening his shop up for
business Friday morning. Decorators
are now at work repairing the damage
caused by the flames, but it will take
sometime to complete the work, as
much of the interior was made to order.
