Deputy Oommissioner John J. Dyder.
of the bureau of labor and statistics,
who was in the city. last Thursday, has
tha following to aay regarding- Colum
bus institutions: What I had in mind
to aay was that the manual training, de
partment At the high school has the best
workshop I have seen yet, in Nebraska
schools. At Omaha, the equipment
may be a little more complete, but your
shop is a real one in all respects. After
a conversation with the chairman of the
bnilding committee of the schools, I
think a stairway escape will replace tb
present ladder on the Second ward
school, and a similar escape ought to be
placed on the First ward school. Tour
opera bouse strikes me as being a very
good building for its purpose, and I
mention this because there are so many
that are not at all well planned for quick
exit in case of great emergency. The
same is true of the small electric theatre,
which is one among dozens, in that it
has a real rear exit. Your mayor . and
Are chief exhibited to me a, spirit that
ought to prevail among all officers of
cities, and while such a spirit does pre
vail among Columbus officials charged
with the safety of the publio there is
little to be feared.
The program committee for the Oraud
Island District EpworthLsague conven
tion to be held in Genoa. June 23 and
34, 1908, have engaged Hev. Fletcher M.
Siason, D. D., LL. D., of Albion, to de
liver a lecture. It will be remembered
that his lectures delivered at the Schuy
ler and Columbus conventions in the
years of 1896 and 1897, were of great in
spiration, and the expectation for the
convention at Genoa is many times great
er from his later lecture, "From Between
the Plow Handles." Dr. Sisson is rec
ognized as one of the best orators in
Nebraska Methodism' and his magnetism
attracts attention from beginning to end
of his lecture. He also presents plenty
of thoughts worth remembering through
life. The committee is planning to make
this convention one of the best ever held
in the Grand Island district.
There are some people to whom the
sight of a pretty flower or shrub creates
within them a desire to destroy it, at
least it would seem so from the experi
ence of Mr. Jacob Greisen. In the front
yard at the Greisen home was a very
nice peony, but some vandal noticed it
and about a week ago it was dug up by
the roots and taken away. When such
people as this lire in a community, it is
rather discouraging ,for those .who en
joy beautif&l flowers and' yards." "L. W.
Snow also had a similar experience, as
last Saturday night one half of the
plants in his fine tnlip bed were dug up
and taken away.
Mrs. J. A. Barkley 'leaves tomorrow
(Thursday) for New York to meet her
husband, who will arrive .from South
Africa in about a week. From there
tbey will make a tour of the United
States while Mr. Barkley inspects a num
ber of the large electrical plants of the
country in the interest of the corporation
in whose employ he is. They expect to
return to Columbus about the middle of
June for an extended visit before return
ing to South Africa. While on their
trip Mr. and Mrs. Barkley'e two little
daughters will remain with their grand
parents, Mr. and Mrs. Leander Gerrard.
The Modern Woodmen are planning
for a large delegation to go on the special
excursion to Lincoln for the state meet
ing at Lincoln May 5 and 6. The pros
pects are that Columbus will furnish
about twenty-five candidates for the
grand initiation. TLis state meeting
.will select delegates to the national con
vention at Peoria, and Postmaster Kra
mer has been mentioned as one of the
delegates. He has some good backing
and it will be no surprise should he be
selected to represent Nebraska at the
national meeting.
Next Sunday there will be an impor
tant function at St. Bonaventura's
church, as on that day the Bt. Rev.
Bishop Scannall of Omaha will preach
at High Mase, and'at 3 o'clock in the
afternoon confirm a class of about one
hundred and fifty, wbirh will include
one hundred and twenty-five children.
This is the first visitation of.the bishop
for confirmation for about three years,
and will be a red letter day for the con
gregation. The masquerade ball given by the
Engine Company No. 1 at tbe Orpheus
hall last Saturday evening was attended
by a large crowd, the receipts being
about $130. MissJosie Thompson and
Marion Enyart were awarded the prize
for being the best masked couple, and
each received $2.50 in cash. Tbe Maen
nerohor orchestra furnished music for
the occasion.
Miss Gusta Schubert, daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Carl Schubert of this city, was
married to Mr. C. A. Tucker on April 22,

a visit with relatives. There was a social
gathering at the home of her parents in
this city on the same evening of tbe wed
ding to celebrate the event.

The fellowiag letter from Qua. Lock
ner, a former citizen of Columbus, and a
man who took a very great interest in
all matters that related tot. ha welfare of
the city, and who also was one of the
fire boys in the old days, will be read
with interest. Mr. Lockner attended the
smoker held by tbe firemen this winter,
and in a talk to tbe boys related many
incidents of the early day firemen that
was a revelation to the younger men
now at the helm:
Omaha, Nebr., April 27, 1908.
Editob Journal: Some days ago, I
noticed a magazine article on the sub
ject of volunteer firemen, fighting fire in
small cities and towns, which reminded
me very much of Columbus in years
gone by its vicissitudes, its ups and
downs. Do the younger generation of
your readers know and realize that Columbus-is
one of the very foremost pio
neers among Nebraska's cities? Pioneer
in enterprise and push. Columbus had
a steam flouring mill in 1867 (Hoffman' ).
Columbus was the first city that had the
nerve to vote $20,000 in bonds and build
a tree onage across tne riatte river.
Columbus was the first city of its class
to adopt and build city waterworks of
its own. Columbus was a leader in many
other early enterprises, but the above
two will always stand a credit to its cit
izens, as they were so timely and prac
tical, and I might say successful, that
other cities, all over the state, have fol
lowed the plan and lead of Columbus,
and time has proven that there was no
mistake made in these schemes, and I
am going to say right here, at the risk
of having it said that I am throwing
boquets at myself, that it has always
been a source of satisfaction to me to
contemplate; the part which I took in
bringing about tbe adoption and build
ing of waterworks in Columbus.
This brings me to tbe point where I
wish to say a word for the live and husky
young firemen of the Columbus fire de
partment At their smoker recently I
hnet as enthusiastic and lively a set of
volunteer fire lads as I ever saw any
where, and those boys should receive
some practical show of appreciation
from the city, if not from the property
owners, (who really are the beneficiaries
of their efforts). Let there be a fund
set aside for their use in getting up a
function of some kind, a smoker, a dance.
or some sort of a jollification, at least
once a year. Now if this sort of thing
has to bejjorq by tbe firemen it will not
come about regular, but-if it was a free
treat,.it wouM'be looked for with pleas-,
tire each year, and would make the
organization interesting to the young
man who owns no property.
Yours truly,
Augustus Locknek,
Ex-Chief Columbus Fire Dep't.

There is a differeaee of opiaioa as to
the effect of the cold weather upon the
fruit crop. Those who looked into the
matter say that the wind and cloudy
nights saved the buds 'from harm in
most cases, and the temperature was not
as low as it seemed on account of the
sharp wind. Tbe fruit was well advanc
ed and tbe amount of damage cannot be
definitely determined for several weeks.
The county clerk's office is being paint

He was sorting out the accumulation of
papers for years and among other rub
bish fonnd a box. This he thought was
of no value and threw it with other rub-
oish into a boo fire. The first thing
Jerry knew he found ont that he had
touched off some fire works, for there
were about a dozen cartridges in the bos,
and when tbey began to explode every
body thought it was time to look for
shelter. But no one was injured and
Jerry is now examining more carefully
what he consigns to that bun fire.
