Files of The Journal, July 22, 1874. t
Duriug tbe past week most farmers in
this locality have completed tbe harvest
of their small grain, oats generally, was
out before maturity, to preserve it from
tbe grass hoppers. Wheat is not so
large a yield as usual, but u, so far as
we have seen, superior in quality.
The last fraud we read about before
penning this item happened to be prac
ticed by a Maine rogue in this way. He
was selling rum by the keg, which was
supposed to contain ten gallons of rum
each, but the rogue had ingeniously
sealed a pint of genuine rum in each
side of the keg eo that by taking out a
cork tbe purchaser oould last the liquor;
the other nine gallons and seven pinta
was pure water.
At tbe last "training" of tbe engine
company, the new well near tbe Episco
pal church was tried for the first time,
and proved satisfactory. The engine
seemed to work even better than usual,
throwing a stream from the street
twenty feat above and over tbe spire of
the church. We again suggest the pro
' pnely of having more of these wells,
that wbsn an emergency arises, the eu
giue may be able to do full duty.
Wednesday afternoon of last week the
grass hoppers came down in part of Col
umbus, and commenced on tbe gardens
in a regular business way to obtain pro
visions. They are first rate feeders, and
by noon tbe next day few gardens in the
northern portion of tbe city contained
vegtables that would have amounted to
the value of a dollar. We examined one
garden containing some corn, potatoes,
cabbage, beets, watermelons, musk mel
ons, cucumbers, etc., and found that tbe
whole thing was so effectually cleaned
up as to render what was left, and what
had promised to be a tolerably good
garden, perhaps entirely worthless. We
noticed in tbe lot examined a few nice
young apple trees from which they had
eaten many of tbe leaves, leaving the
tender growth exposed to the scorching
The Special Train's.
Special train service has been secured
from Columbus to Albion for the Albion
Chautauqua on Sundays Aug. 3, and
Aug 9, 1906. These trains will be run
rain or 6hine. and if you want to hear an
excellent program come to Albion, either
or both of these dates. The trains will
leave your station about noon. Next
week we will give you the exact time of
departure. Tbe reason that we have
these .trains leave at this time of day is
that you will be able to arrive in Albion
just in time to secure good seats for the
entertainments -and not be required to
wait for tbe program to begin. For com
plete program write to W. B. Swyganl,
Manager. Albion. Nebr. Watch tbe
papers next week for particulars.

Austin White died at hk home in west
Columbus Thursday evening at eight
o'clock, death being due to heart fail
are. Tbe deceased has been a patient
sufferer for the past three months, and
although quite ill at times, death came
very unexpected. Mr. White waa born
in Ohio in 1856, and came to Nebraska
in early manhood settling at Greaham,
where he resided untill five years ago,
when, with his family, he came to this
city, where he has since resided. In
1882, at York, Nebr., he was united in
marriage to Miss Haldah Bell Fuller of
Oresbam. To this union eleven child
ren were born, three of whom are dead.
Besides his wife, Mr. White leaves eight
children, namely: William, George,
Lemmie, Ida, Clarence, Bollin and Fred.
The children all live here, with the ex
ceptions of William, who resides in
Lexington, and Lemmie, who is located
in North Dakota. The funeral was held
from the family residence Sunday morn
ing at ten o'clock, Rev. DeWolf, pastor
of the M. E. church, officiating. Music
was furnished by tbe Misses Elizabeth
Watkins, Elizabeth Lewis, and W. K.
Lay. Interment was in the Columbus
cemetry. Relatives who attended the
funeral from out of town were, Mr. and
Mrs. James Greig, of St Edward, Mrs.
Elizabeth Fuller and Mrs. Frank Holly
The four musical companies that will
furnish two concerts daily at the Chau
tauqua assembly which will open Tues
day. Aug. 4, are worth more than tbe en
tire cost of a season ticket. The Kirk
smith Concert company is composed of
four beautiful young ladies, three of
them sisters. They are all instrumenta
lists while one of them sings soprano
and another contralto. The Hesperian
Male quartette was the Chicago Uni
versity Male Quartette of twelve years
ago. They are all men of affairs, and
have won laurels in other lines, but
they have maintained their organization
all of these years and have been togeth
er every summer. Naturally they have
a wide selection of songs and their
voices have become beautifully harmon
ized. They are exoelled by no quartette
in America. The Sterlings are the
strongest company of colored artists ob
tainable. The peculiar timbre of their
voices is especially adapted to out of
door singing. Tbe Royal Hungarian
orchestra consists of eight superb artiats
and soloists." There is no bettaforcbesv
tra on the platform.
There is "war to the knife" between
the Prohibitionists and license factions
at Belgrade. At the spring election the
license element won out. But the pro
hibitionists, led by the resident minis
ters, were stayers and succeeded in keep
ing out tbe open saloon until Tuesday
of last week when ths village board is
sued licenses to two saloons. Last
Wednesday an attorney for the Prohibi
tionists come to Columbus and commenc
ed mandamus proceedings against tba
members of the village board on Judge
Thomas' court, citing them to appear
Thursday, July 23, and show cause why
tbe licenses recently granted should not
be revoked. The board will fight to sus
tain their action, and on Monday W. W.
Graham and Charles Robinson, members
of the board, came to Oolumbus and re
tained Judge Sullivan to take charge of
the village's interests in the oase. Bel
grade is the only wet town in Nance
county. Nearly all the business men
are in favor of license, and the attempt
of the Prohibitionists to defeat tbe will
of the people by raising technical objec
tions will be hotly contested.
The most agreeable surprise that Dud
ley Christy ever bumped up against was
in Columbus last Wednesday evening.
Er. Christy lives in Kansas City.
The day previous he had received a mes
sage from Genoa, informing him that his
brother, E. T. Christy, had perished in a
mill fire, and he was on his way to that
place to attend the funeral. He walked
up to tbe desk at tbe Clotber hotel and
was about to register when he noticed
his brother's name on the page. The
night clerk could give him no informa
tion except that E. T. Christy had reg
istered in the afternoon and left after
supper. The day clerk, who was asleep,
was routed out and furnished the infor
mation that tbe guest in question had
paid bis bill and departed after supper,
and that he was the man who was sup
posed to have been cremated when tbe
mill burned at Genoa. The Kansas City
brother boarded the Spalding freight the
following morning for Genoa.
E T.Christy, tbe miller, who was re
ported to have perished in the Genoa
mill fire last Tuesday afternoon, is alive
after all. When the explosion of dust
in the mill occurred, Christy leaped
through a window and escaped, but his
mind was temporarily deranged. He
walked to Chapman, eleven miles east of
Grand Island, before he came to himself,
and from there purchased a ticket to
Grand Island, and then wired his family
that be waa safe and well. When the
dispatoh arrived in Genoa citizens were
dragging the mill pond for his remains.
Previous search had been made in the
rains without success, and the work of
dragging the pond commenced, as it was
thought possible that if he had succeeded
in getting out of the mill that he had
jumped into the water to extinguish his
burning garments. Mr. Christy reached
Oolumbus last Wednesday evening and
drove to Genoa, reaching there late at
