Quite a number of farmers last spring
,- sowed flax. This is a new feature in
farming in this county. 8uoh things
evince enterprise in the right direction.
The parties who have fisx growing state
. that the aame is looking finely.
' There'is some talk among onr citizens
in regard-to constructing and launohing
"a steamboat on the Lonp river, provided
the proper material aid can be realized.
Wonders never cease, and oar citizens
' may yet see a steamboat gliding beauti-
fully up the Lonp river.
It hs been noticed that a great many
trees, from the tough Cottonwood to the
tender peach were killed during the past
' winter. Several farmers, who keep. well
posted in matters of this kind, say that i
it was owing to an early frost in Septem
ber last. Many cottonwoods as much as
four years old, have been killed, what-
ever may have been the cause.
Messrs. E. J. Baker, T. C. Ryan, J. C.
Morrlseey, Hugh Oompton, Wni. HoAl

generously donated the necessary nam
.ber of buckets to the Columbus Hook
and Ladder Co. The requisite number
of buckets having been contributed 'by

There were a great many people in
town on Saturday last purchasing sup
plies. Most, if not all, the corn ground
' has been ' planted, and many farmers
began harrowing Monday. It is reck

fore the weeds make their appearance
above the surface. Columbus is to have
two base ball clubs this season. Go in,
boys, there is good material here for two
No. 1 clubs.

Adolph F. Gores of this city and Miss
Amelia Oorrey of New Auburn, Wis.,
were married at the Grace church rec
tory Friday evening, Rev. Dr. Westcott
preforming the ceremony. Mr. and Mrs.
Gores will make this city their future
home. The groom is now employed by
G. B. Frieb.
Now that spring is on
the way, would it not be
a good idea to think '
about repapering the

and all who have had
work done by us have
been well satisfied.

For many years the problem of pre
venting the river from washing away
land adjacent to it has perplexed those
owning it and it and thousands of dol
lars have bean expended in trying to
prevent this damage, but without sao
oess. The owner of the land was com
pelled to sit by and see his property
eaten away. Bat a new plan has been
devised that seems to fill the bill, and it
is so simple that one wonders why it was
not thought of before. The Omaha
Oorrent Deflector company, who own
the patients, have been patting in some
work here which speaks for itself. On
J. H. Galley's farm, southeast of the city,
the river was rapidly eating away the
land and the current next the bank was
from eight to ten feet in depth. This
was about fonr weeks ago, and today
there is only about two feet of water
ana no current to speaK or, tne main
ohannel being to the south. Their sys
tem consists oi wire netting, wnicn is
anchored in the river above where the
current strikes the bank, thereby check
ing it and causing a deposit of sand to
be made so as to form a sand bar where
the channel formerly was. Besides this
work they have been doing some for M.
Brugger and also for the connty at the
Loup bridge. At the latter place the
current threatened to wash around the
south end of it and necessiate a longer
approach, but this danger has been re
moved. The cost of the work is very
reasonable. $3.55 per rod, and as the
diverting of the channel seems to be the
remedy for catting, it looks as though
the problem had been solved.
Last Saturday a couple of knights of
of the road entered Friedhofs store and'
asked to look at coats. While one was
thus engaged the other managed to get
away with a pair of pants, but was
caught in the act by the clerk and forced
to disgorge. After the pair had left the
store it was discovered that another pair
of pants was missing, and Chief Schack
was notified. He was given a description
of the culprit and about five o'clock lo
cated him and placed him under arrest.
He was taken to the Friedhof store and
searched, bat nothing was found, and he
claimed the other fellow was the culprit.
The other fellow, who was a printer by
the name of Collins was discovered Sun
day morning just after he had boarded
the blind for Central City, and the au
thorities there were notified to look out
foxtin and placed, him under arreet as
soon as the train arrived 'and Monday
he was brought back to this city by the
sheriff and placed in jail, and will have
to answer for his work. There was a
large number of tramps in town last
Saturday and it was rather a strenuous
day for the police.
Patron's day will be Friday, May 29.
All the schools will be adjourned in the
afternoon, in order that the patrons and
pupils may have an opportunity to see
the display of school work at the High
school. This work will be from every
room in the city. It will consist of
writing, drawing, map work, industrial
work, mechanical drawing, wood work
and iron work from the manual training
department, and biological work from
the science department. Every patron
is urged to be present and see something
of what is being done by the pupils.
Many patrons on aocoant of other mat
ters do not visit the school often, but at
this time we hope ever' patron will avail
himself of the opportunity to come any
time from 1:15 to 4:90. It will be an
encouragement to the children and will
enable you to see how your child's work
compares with that of others in the lines
The first of the weekly band concerts
will be given in the park next Friday
evening, as the boys have been success
ful in raising the amount of the sub
scription required. The change from
Wednesday night, which has long been
the regular sight, to Friday is forth
benefit .of the traveling men. During
the last few years quite a number of
traveling men have moved to this city
and this year they donated liberally to
the band concert fund. As they cannot
be in the city the first of the week, and a
good many of them are hen Friday, the
change was made for their benefit, and
it will make no material difference to
the oitlsens of Columbus.
Platte county farmers an beginning
to take an interest in the stocking of the
country with game birds. Boy .Clark, of

work of the Columbus Game and Fish
Protective association, and that they
