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 lister. "A. Friedline and J. Stauffer have generously donated the necessary nam .ber of buckets to the Columbus Hook and Ladder Co. The requisite number of buckets having been contributed 'by the above nassed merchants and dealers; it was not necessary to call upon others though, donbtless they would have con- .tributed. 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 oned'the best-plan is to harrow just be 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. Karriagk LiceasM.' James R. VanBuskirk, Garner .... Nellie Alexander, Omaha Francis M. Byner, Cedar Rapids .. Maybelle Holt.

Wall Paper Now that spring is on the way, would it not be a good idea to think ' about repapering the rooms? Our line of wall paper has never been surpassed, either in qual ity, pattern or price, and all who have had work done by us have been well satisfied. Kmiiiih t Bttttrtai If you want 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 displayed. 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 Woodville township, who is serving on the jury this week, in speaking of the matter, said that a cumber of his neigh bors had read with interest retarding the work of the Columbus Game and Fish Protective association, and that they wen thinking very strongly of purchas ing a number of settings of pheasant eggs and stocking the timber in their lo cality. Those interested will see to it that the birds are properly protected, aa they will allow no hunting on their lands. Mr. sad Mrs. G. B. Speiee, Mrs. D. T.
