It is claimed that they have found in the Beaver valley a genuine article of peat. A. V. Sutton, t peat bed No. 1, Boone county, Nebraska, baa got a quan tity which he is distributing for trial. Mrs. Jones and Mrs. Manington called at the Journal office Tuesday morning of last week, and stated in conversation that they are friends and neighbors of Mr. Geo. Lehman, and have, one 15, and the other 30 acres of wheat, which looks nicely, stand evenly on the ground, all in head, and they believe it is a little better than friend Lehman's. From a well informed citizen of Butler county we learn that some of the official of the Atchison & Nebraska R. R com pany have gone east to see if negotiations cannot be entered into with eastern cap italists to extend the A. & X. road to Columbus. We hope that they may be successful in their efforts, for the con nection is a very desirable one, not only for Columbus, but also for the oompany which proposes it. Such a road would, at Lincoln, give us three competing lines east, which with our present facilities for shipping, would give us a good deal more elbow room. Last Wednesday the western bound express on the Union Pacific brought the Georgia exoursionists, for whose visit to our city we are indebted to S. A. Echols. Omaha had given them a warm reception, and their journey hither had been a very pleasant one. After supper, theColumbus band serenaded the party, discoursing their best music, to which Mr. O. G. Jordan responded in a nsat speech. A visit to the Pawnee reserva tion, twenty-two miles west of the city, was made Thursday. To Georgians, as to all those who have never seen Indians in their lodges, these were a great curi osity. The party generally were well pleased with the country, and we may expect quite an accession to our popula tion asja result. AiTtrttced Latteri.

On June 12th, the Indian School base ball team journeyed overland to the city of Golumbus, and crossed bats with an aggregation of men representing the City of Columbus in the baseball world. The game started out very nicely and to all appearances looked as though the un pire was inclined to give both sides a square deal and did fairly well up to the last half of the ninth inning when, ac cording to the idea of the major part of the gentlemen of Columbus who witness ed the game, he rendered three of the rankest decisions ever rendered on a baseball diamond. The result of the game was a score of 4 to 3 in favor of Columbus, this being the flrst time the Indians were beaten this season. We did not like it very well but took it and looked good natured no matter how we felt. Arrangements were made before leaving the city for a return game to be played on i he Indian athletic grounds on June 25th. Accordingly Columbus came over and were taken down the line to the tune of 4 to 2 in favor of the Indians. We learn that at the Colum bus game, well any way one of the Co lumbus papers said that the Indian catcher got a bug in his ear and walked down to the pitchei to have him take it out, and thereby let a man walk in from third base bringing in the winning score. It is true the Indian catcher did walk down toward the pitcher, but not uutil after be had asked the umpire to call time, and then Mr. Man did walk in, and the umpire called it O. K. If that is square ball playing, then we will admit that we do not ''know anything about the game However, at the game on June 25, we had the bug taken out of the catcher's ear and the ear filled with batton so as there might not another bug get in the ear, but after we found Mr. All. Crolf, of Silver Creek, was going to umpire the game we had the batton taken out, for we knew he would be square and if there was going to be a good square man in the box we knew there would be no bugs Hying. The game was witnessed by 700 enthusiastic people. Indian School News. Another wedding was added to the already large list of June weddings Wed nesday, when at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Kauffman, occurred the marriage of their daughter, Miss Ida, to Harry Lohr. The hour of the wedding was four o'clock. The home was beautifully decorated in smilax, roses and carnations. At the appointed hour the bride and groom descended the stairs to the strains of wedding march played by the groom's sister, Mrs. E. M. Taylor, and found places under an arch of smilax and roses, which formed the marriage altar. The bride was gowned in white organdie and carried white roses. They were attended by Mips Gusta Kauffman. sister of the bride, and Will Dawson. Rev. Meissler, pastor of the German Lutberean church, perform ed the ceremony, which was witnesed by relatives and a few intimate friends. The only out of town guest was Miss Minnie Biaer of Weeping Water. After the wedding a six course dinner . was ser ved, after which the happy couple de parted for Portland, Oregon, where they will visit for three weeks. The bride is well known, having taught in the public schools of this city for the past three years, and by her kind and gentle man ner has won many friends. The groom is also well known and has lived here the greater part or nis lire with the ex ception of the past few months, which has been spent in Grand Island, where he is employed by the railroad. The bride and groom have many friends, who will join the Journal in extending to them the heartiest congratulations. Mr. and Mrs. Lohr will reside in Grand Island. P. J. Barron, formerly of this city, we see by the daily papers, recently distin guished himself by rendering a violin solo in a theater at Scotts Bluffs, and averted a fire panic. We have always thought from the first time we ever heard Pete scratch that old fiddle, that it would either get him in trouble or bring him fame, and we are tickled at the outcome. Pete is also entitled to lead the orchestra in a play house where they have something better than kerosene lamps for footlights. He says the solo he played to quiet the exoited audience, was the Austrian National hymn, but we rather imagine it was a tune (original) that he "pilfered" from the "soothing" bow of Scotty Brainard in the "chapel" of the old Journal office, where the bunch used to assemble, after the weekly forms were washed and the mail carted to the postotBoe, to take a new lease on li'e with the aid of a rather large hunk of cheese, five pound of crackers and the office sprinkler. Anyway, Pete is a hero. Will the medal man kindly hand him something worth the inspiration? The commencement exercises of the Jennie Edmundson Memorial hospital, a training school for nurses, took place Tuesday evening, June 16th, at the First Presbyterian church parlors in Council Bluffs, Iowa, under the auspecies of the Woman's Christian Association. Di plomas of graduation were presented to six persons, Mrs. Mary Healer Hunger ford of Columbus, being one of the graduates. Mrs. Hungerford formerly lived in this city, but for the past three years has been receiving instructions in this hospital and her many friends will chose work.

O'Neil passed through town Saturday with twenty Indian boys and girls from the Genoa Indian school en route to their home in Browning, Mon tana. The school year at the Genoa institution olosed last Saturday, and many of the 350 pupils "will return to their reservation homes, some of them to remain permanently. It appears to be the policy of the Indian department to encourage reservation schools, and employees of non-reservation schools will be prohibited in the future from go ing onto reservations to solicit pupils for the Genoa and other non-reservation schools. The prediction is nude that some of the non-reservation schools will be compelled to olose, as parents of Indian children favor the reservation schools in preference to the old system of sending pupils away from ijome for in struction. W. E. Huffer of Lost Greek township, was in the oity Tuesday, returning home from Colby, Kas.. where he owns a piece of land. There has been a number of conflicting reports concerning the crops in that locality and he decided . to go down and see juet'how crops were. What he aaw more than pleased him, as hisi renter has 170 acres of wheat almost ready to cnt, that will yield from twenty to twenty-five bushels to the acre. In view of this Mr. Huffer has made a good investment in western Kansas. In the days of long ago, the Indian walked ahead and his squaw followed him, dragging the tent pole. When they approached a settlement he did not take the pole from her; she continued to drag it till their destination was reached. Nowadays, when a woman carries a heavy burden, her husband is apt to step back and relieve her when they reach the place where the people will see them. This is Civilization. Atchison Globe.

Some time ago the post office depart ment requested the names of all road overseers and county supervisors who have charge of the roads traveled by rural carriers. That they intend to look after this direct from 'Washington is shown by the department taking up a report on the condition of the Platte bridge with Supervisor Schwarz. They state that the bridge is reported in a dangerouw condition and unless it is looked after rnral route No. 5 will bedii -continued As this is the bridge in which Butler and Polk county are interested in as well as Platte. Mr. Schwarz is doing all he can to have these counties do their share and place the bridge in ood con dition. The discontinuing of this route would not only inconvenience Columbus merchants, but also the residents of Polk and Butler counties served by the route.

When a rnral route bandies more than 5,000 pieces of mail during each month for three months, the department does not require them to count the number of pieces handled. Until July 1 all the Columbus routes but No. 3 were count- ing their mail, but routes No. 1. 2 and , 4 have bandied over the required amount of mail for the last three months and will ' discontinue this after the first of July. Besides relieving the carriers of extn work, this inriicttes that the business of" the local post office ia steadily increas ing. People do not seem to be aware of the ruling made by the postoffice department regarding the sending of nouvenir post cards enclosed in tissue envelopes. When cards are maile-I in this manner tlie stamp should be placed on the outbid of the tissue envelopes, otherwise tbft department will treat it as though there was no postage on it, and hold it for postage due. If the card is one that can be sent without enclosing in the en velope, it will bn taken out and forward ed. Some people resort to cutting out the portion of the envelope over the stamp, but this is held by the depart ment to be the same as though this was not done. So if you want your cards to go without Iwinir held for postage, nut the stamp on th outside of the envelope.
