of the bridge across the Loup being
"damaged by the ice gorge. Many of the
pine pileing, in the dykes above the
bridge, were broken off by the Hood.
L. M. Beebe began work on the tem
porary bridge bcdm the Loup, on Mon
day, sad hopes, with favorable weather,
to have it completed for travel by Sat
urday next. . The money for this week
was contributed by the business men of

up tbe tree daring the whole night and
came near freeciag. Imagine the suf

a rapreasatative gathering
of the repablieaa rotera at the city con
vention, beW at the city hall Thursday
eveaiag. Henry Bagmtz was chairman
and GnsO. Beohsr, jr., ascretary. The
republicans favoring a non-partisan
tieket, selected a committee, consisting
of J. D. Stires. M. D. Karr and M. Whit-
moyer, to confer with the democrats
aad aubmit a proposition for a division
of ofices as follows : Let the republicans
name a member of the school board,
water commissioner and one connoilman
each from the Third and Fourth wards.
The democrats were willing to accept
the division provided the republicans
would withdraw the request for a coun
cilmaa in the Fourth ward. This they
coald not agree on and the republicans
named O. A. Scott, for the school board,
Ctrl Kramer withdrawing his name and
adjourned until Friday night. At the
adjourned oquveaUoa Friday evening it
was decided to adhere to the proposition
made the democrats anu nominate such
officials as was asked for the previous
evening, and Geonre Fairchild was notn
nated for water commissioner and
Julias Nichols councilman in the Fourth
ward and B. 8. Dickinson in the Third
ward. A city committee waa named
with Bert J. Galley as chairman and G.
Frischolz. First ward; Chas. Wurdeman.
Second ward; W. A. McAllister, Third
ward; M. D. Kaar. Fourth ward. Thost
present from the Fourth ward organized
a repablieaa club vhich will be a perm
anent organization, the committee in
charge being Bert J. Galley. Frank J.
Gerharz and H. G. Fricke.
Lute North has been fortunate in
securing the services of Louie Frilts,
lecognized as one of the best caretakers
of race horses in the west. Mr. Fritts
has had long experience and has gone
through the big eastern circuit many
times. In Mr. North's stable this season
will be the fast pacer 'Black Douglas,"
a hone in whom all Platte county takes
a lively iaterest, and who at the present
time is looking atronger and better than
ever, and it ia safe to predict that any
horse in his class that beats him to the
wire will have to do a lot of fast going.
He also has three colts aired by "Spo
kane," dam by "Saedeiaad Onward,"
that will be given their first lessons in
cased making. In this connection we
willssy that Ed. Kennedy of St. Edward
is coming to Ootambnstp train hia
harass car the rases. He will 'havem his
stable such good ones aa "FredO" and
MPhul Kaae" by 4 Spokane" and "The
Picket" by "Pacotolue." Although Mr.
Kennedy has disposed of 'Surens," the
guideless wonder, that horse will remain
in hia stable to be campaigned by him.
These two racing stables will take op
quartern at the Columbus Driving Park
on April 1st, and with other additions to
come later on, it will be a very lively
place until the bell rings for the racers
The Colambus Game and Fish pro
tective associatioa, which was organised
last week, has made arrangements to
liberate twelve pairs of pheasants, in
accordance with their intention to stock
thie section with game birda. The lo
cation aud number to be liberated is ss
follows: Two pair at each of the follow
placea, Buck inland, Clark and Sheldon's
ranch, southwest of town, John Schiltz's
near Oconee, Adam Smith's, west of
town, on Shell Creek near O. J. Osrrig's,
Steve Jaretzskfs west of town and south
of the Loop. Thtoe birds are to be lib
erated April 1 and all should assist in
protecting them aa this eventually means
a replenishing of tbe now almost ex
hausted aupply of game birds. Tbe
state game laws provide thst it is un
lawful to kill any Mongolian pheasant,
China pheasant, or other imported game
birda at aay season of the year, and pro
Tides a fine of 15 for each bird killed.
In addition to this the local association
offers a standing reward of $25 for the
arrest and conviction of anyone killing
The democratic c:ty convention, held

' Moat of the boya from the country who
attend the Commercial oollege have re
turned ..to their respective vocations,
farsusg. . Ws believe the boys think
whati is there on earth which can mors
eatirely charm the eye or -gratify the
taste, than aaobls farm ;. Tusy no doubt
ffsel as a work sf art, few thinga are moi
pleasing to tbe. eye, or more capable of
affording scope and gratification to a
taste for the beautiful than n well sit
uated, well cultivated farm. While the
city is refreshed and renovated by the
pare tides poured from the country into
its steamy and turbid channels, the cul
tivation of the soil affords at home that
moderate excitement healthful occupa
tion, and reasonable retnrn which most
ooodace to the prosperity and enjoyment
of life. It is boys in fact the primitive
employment of man. From scripture
ws find it was first in time, first in im
portance. The newly created father of
mankind was placed by the Supreme
Author of his being in the garden which
the hand of Omnipotence .itself had
planted, "to dress and to keep it." Be
fore the heaving bellows bad urged the
furnace, before the gleaming waters had
flashed from an oar, before trsde had
hung up its scales, or gauged ita meas
ures, the culture of the soil began." Stick
to it boys, for while we labor and while
we rest, while we wake and while we
aleep, God's chemistry, which we cannot
see, goes on beneath tbe clods, and with
gentle showers and kindly, sunshine,
well filled wagons will bring home tbe
treasures of the year.
