John Keeler, living west of Platte
Center, was in the city 8aturday. Mr.
Keeler is an old soldier, and served in
the 38th New York regiment during the
War of the Rebellion, and was wounded
four times. At the battle of Winchester
be received a bullet in his leg nnd another
in one of his arms. While limping
around after the battle separated from
the Union army, and trying to find a
place to obtain a drink of water, a Con
federate officer rode up and to him Keeler
appealed for aid. The officer stopped,
drew his sword and struck the wounded
and bleeding man a terrific blow on the
side of the head, felling him to the
ground. Toe old veteran carries the
soare indicted by the inhuman officer to
this day. and although Keeler has long
since ceased to feel any animosity to
ward the men he fought, yet be woald
like to meet that fellow who struck him
thirty-six year ago for just about five
minutes. He said there would be some
thing doing in that brief time as old
as he is. Comrade Keeler was near
General James Shields when that officer
was wounded and assisted in carrying
him off the battle field and helped the
surgeon in dressing his wounds.
'One of the first bills introduced in the
next legislature should be an act increas
ing the compensation paid to county as
sessors. The assessor of Platte county
is paid $600 ayear, a compensation whol
ly inadequate for the amount of time
put in and labor performed. The county
board has not shown much of an inclina
tion to give the assessor the necessary
assistance, and as a result County Asses
Shell Clark was compelled to work from
twelve to sixteen hours a day in order to
keep up with the work and have his
books in readiness for the board of
equalization when it met. In many
oounties throughout the state tbe asses
sors were not ready for the board at the
appointed time, and it become necessary
for the boards to adjourn and meet again.
All the other county officers have state
organizations, and have succeeded in
lobbying bills through the legislature in
creasing salaries or fees. Take the office
of sheriff, for instance it is now what is
termed "a snap." Salaried deputies do
the work at the county's expense while
the sheriff-rakes in a good sized salary,
doing practically nothing in comparison
with tbe compensation received.

recommended that the work be given to

The first newspaper -advertisement
appeared in Great Britain in 1612. In
Greece it was the public crier who
announced sales or bid the people come
to the theatre or visit the public baths.
In England the first printed advertise
ment was got up by Caxton, the cele
brated printer. The advertising card is
of modern origin, although the Egypt
ians, Greeks and Romans knew some
thing about advertising. They accom
plished the desired results through the
medium of posters, as bills painted in
black and red were discovered on tbe
walls of Pompeiian dwellings. Tbe first
authentic advertisoment was published
in the Mercurius Politicus in 1652. In
the year 1657, a weekly newspaper de
voted to the interest of advertising, made
its appearance in London. It was not
until tbe eighteenth century that news
paper advertising became the recognized
medium between the merchant and the
buyer. If you desire to learn more about
advertising, call at tbe Journal office and
the publisher will be pleased to quote
you prices on any space desired from
an inch to a page.

Here is an opportunity for some bright
Columbus boy to receive an appointment
to the Aunapolis Naval academy. Tbe
failure of one boy to paas tbe mental
examination, and tbe other to pass tbe
physical elimination, leaves two vacan
cies from this congressional district. In
order to qualify for tbe naval academy
the appointee must pass an examination
in geography, history, arithmetic, algebra
and geometry. Examination papers are
marked on a schIo ranging from 4 to 0,
and a mark below 2.5 may cause the re
jection of the candidate. Any Columbus
boy who aspires to an appointment to
Annapolis, can obtain full particulars by
writing to Congressman J. F. Boyd,
Omaha papers have announced that
through tbe efforts of tbe Commercial
club of that oity, a New Jersey firm will
erect a large alfalfa mill in the Nebraska
metropolis. Tbe place to erect alfalfa
mills is near the locality where raw ma
terial can be secured. Columbus would
be a good location for an alfalfa mill, and
it would not be necessary to Bbip tbe raw
material very far in order to keep a mill
of moderate capacity in operation. With
the completion of the new plant, Omaha
will have two alfalfa mill, using forty
carloads of alfalfa every week. This will
make a demand for alfalfa in this part of
the state, and tbe demand will increase
as the demand for alfalfa meal increases.
