A recent issue of the Geological Sur vey PreBs Bulletin, issued by the govern ment, conveys the information that Platte and other counties in the state are said to be overlain by natural pum ice. The Bulletin says that "the pumice produced in the United States in 1907 amounted to 8.112 short tons, valued at S:',:),818 a decrease, as compared with the 1900 production, of 4,088 tons. The price per ton, however, rose rrom 5i. in the earlier year to $4.17 in the later year, chielly because of increased cost of handling the material at the mines and "ettinir it into the cars. The imports of pumice into the United Stales in 1907 were valued at 8.,G47 a decrease of 2;.04S from the value of the imports in the preceding year. All of the domestic pumice marketed in this country comes from Harlan and Lincoln counties, Neb.f but deposits are also known in South Dakota. Kansas, and Oklahoma. Scat tered deposits occur in other Western States. Tne term pumice is applied to a form or volcanic rock which may be either massive or in a linely comminuted state. The massive variety is largely imported from the Liparl Islands, a vol canic group in the Mediterranean sea north of Sicily. The roek owes its pe culiar porous, vesicular, or pumiceous condition tc the ra'pid expansion of in cluded moisture or gases due to sudden release of pressure at the time of its ejec tion from the volcano. This expansion may be carried to such an extent that the rock is completely shattered, and the resultant finaly powdered material may he carried to unknown distances by wind and air currents and then deposited in beds that may reach several feet in thick ness. This explanation is usually as signed to the Nebraska deposits. Prac tically the entire State of Nebraska is said to he overlam by natural pumice, deposits of which extend as far east as Omaha. The extent and thickness of the beds are evidence of extraordinary former volcanic activity. North of Nebraska, in the heart of the Bad Lands of South Dakota, beds of pumice 10 to 15 feet thick have been noted. In Scotts Bluff and Banner counties, in the west ern Dart of Nebraska, there are beds 100 feet thick, which, though not consisting wholly of volcanic ash, have been rend ered white by it. The material in indi vidual beds differs greatly in purity, tex ture, and physicial condition. Some of it is pure and white; some is adulterated with silt, sand, clay, particles of lime stone, etc. In texture also it exhibits great variety, the materials being found in almost every stage of consolidation, from incoherent dust to fairly compact rock. Nearly all the material iB used for abrasive purposes, either in the form of polishing powders or soap." General Manager Frank Walters and Sunetintendent O. H. Reynolds, of the Northwestern, have just returned from a trip to Gregory and Dallas, where they conferred with the city officials of those two towns regarding preparations for the forthcoming Tripp county land rush. They found the two towns in the Rose bud, which will lie registration points, to be alive and on the qui vive in anti cipation of the rush which begins two weeks from Monday. Superintendent Reynolds said that preparations for pol ice protection are being made at both Gregory and Dallas. At Dallas there will be one Pinkerton man imported to take charge of the local special police men, uregory will nave rniipie puuee protection also. As matters now stand, gambling will not be allowed on the streets and will be restricted to the sa loons in both Gregory and Dallas. Plans have been made to regulate other condi tions which usually accompany such throngs. Both Gregory and Dallas are already crowded with people awaiting the rush Tents have sprung up on the nrairie in that region. The first Tues day during the rush October 6 will be a big day in the opening by reason or the fact that on that day homeseekers' rates apply on railroads from the east and that is the only day upon which any excursion rates will be made. O'Neill and Valentine, affidavit points, are pre paring also to handle good sized orowds. Many people desiring to keep out of the crush are expected there. Norfolk News. The people of Columbus will not have an opportunity to hear William H. Taft, who, according to the dispatches, will pass through this city some time after midnight on the morning of October 2nd.

Millinery Opening Friday & Saturday Sept. 25th and 26th H. H. STIRES n Platte County Argus January 1, 1906. Eugene W. Chafin, prohibition candi date for president of the United States, addressed a fair sized audience at the city park Tuesday forenoon. The speak er was introduced by the Rev. DeWolf, pastor of the Methodist church. Candi date Chafin is a pleasing speaker, and in a humorous vein alluded to the fact that he was one of seven candidates running for president, but only six of them were taking part in the campaign, the seventh being confined in a penitentiary out in Nevada. He said there were two Eu genes, two Williams and two Thomases in the list of candidates; he alluded to Taft as the fearless leader, Bryan as the peerless leader, and himself as the beer less leader. The speaker took the ground that there could not be two standard of morals in this country, and that within five j ears there would not be a licensed saloon doing busiuess under the Ameri can flag. He argued that if the saloon business is wrong it cannot he made right by law; that if a vote on the pro position to license the liquor traffic were overwhelmingly in its favor it would not mean that it was right; that the on ly way to subdue the traffic whs by the enactment of a national prohibition law tie claimed that Taft was on record against the enactment of any law which the people wore not in favor of; that Bryan had declared himself in favor of the slate and not the general govern ment deciding the liquor question. He said that Bryan stands today on the li quor question where Stephen A. Douglas stood on the question of slavery half a century ago; that in fifty years he would probably catch up to the procession and run for president with some chance of succe-s. Mr. Chafin contended that every man wno recognizeu iui mmc was only one standard of morals under the American flag was an Abraham Lin coln republican, and that every man who believed in two standard of morals one for the state and one for the na tion was a Stephen A. Douglas demo crat. Mr. Chafin's address was differ ent from that usually delivered by the average prohibition speaker. From a prohibition standpoint the address was a strong one and the prohibitionists present were highly elated at the success of the meeting and the impression made by their candidate for president. The ringing of the police alarm in Frankfort park called officers Burke and Nelson to that place where they found Arthur Clay, a young man, about twenty one years of age, who told them a story about trying to commit suicide. lie said he was out on West Sixteenth street. and intended killing himself there and make it look like a case of murder. He had a revolver, railroad spike, a bottle of carbolic acid and a piece of rock. He tried the acid first, but it tasted bad, then he shot off his revolver, and then lost his nerve, lie told the policemen later he had turned his pockets inside out and thrown everything away, and a search in the morning revealed the truth of his statements. Clay worked on the Reisch Bros, ranch at Richland and was considered a steady man. He came there from Iowa where bis folks live. As his mind was not considered sonndt he was locked up in the county jail until Sunday, when his father came from the east and took bim home. From xemarks made by his father the family is in poor circumstances. mrrircL Charley Hirschbrunner has returned from Central City, where he went several days ago to work for A. Dussell & Son, who have contracted some work in that city, but on account of being ill had to abadon work for the present. George Bloedorn and Wm.

Miss Gertrude Jaeggi returned Friday evening frotu Kansas City, Missouri, where she has been visiting friends for the past six weekB. In company with a nnmber of friends Miss Jaeggi spent much of the time at a summer resort She reports a pleasant outing. The attendance in the Columbus pub lic schools is becoming so large that it is already a problem to take care of the scholars. In the Sixth, Seventh and Eighth grades there are 200 pupils and four teachers, and practically the same conditions exist in a number of the other rooms. Dr. Harry Arnold arrived in the city Saturday from California, and after a short stop here, will go on to Chicago on a business mission. It is his inten tion to make a longer 9tay on his return trip. The Arnold family and other old time Columbus people now living in California, are enjoying good health. W. W. Wuittacker, who is employed by the city to do the street sprinkling, accidently fell from the water wagen last Wednesday morning and in some manner fell beneath it, the wheel pass ing over his foot badly crushing it. Al though the injury is very painful it is not considered dangerous. Louis RAnrnemann is now sprinkling the streets. Mr. and Mra. L W. Snow returned Snndav evenintr from Madisonvillc. Kentucky, where they were called several days ago by the serious illness of Mr. Snow's sister, Mrs. J. A. Rudy, who passed away before Mr. and Mrs. Snow reached her bedside, death resulting from neritomtis. They were accom panied home by a little niece, who will remain here. One of the attractive features in the educational building at the state fair at Lincoln was the manual training and general display of the Columbus schools, and it carried off three first and one sec ond prizes. The first prizes amounted to 825 in cash, but the second carried nothing, being given in recognition of the general excellence of the display. In addition to this there was an excep tionally fine display of clay modeling. considered the best in the building, bnt no prizes were offered on this. On Tuesday, October 20, a proposition will be submitted to the electors of Co lumbus to vote bonds in the sum of J $15,000 for the construction of a sewer age system. The plans provide for a sewer on Olive street commencing at Sixteenth Street and running south to Pacific avenue. At the north end the proposed sewer will be 3G incheB in dia meter, gradually increaaing in size to a diameter to 60 inches at Tenth street. The sewer will be constructed of brick and cement. Th estimated cost is $14.f00. At the same election a proposi tion will also be submitted to the voter to issue bonds to the amonut of 84.000 for the purpose of purchasing land for park purposes. That Columbus has had more fires than the average City of it9 size, in the past two weeks, was proven beyond a doubt Saturday afternoon, when the firemen were called out twice within twenty minutes. The first call waB sounded about three thirty, when the store house belonging to the Columbus Light, Heat and Power Company was seen on fire. It was only a matter of a few minutes' work to extinguish the flames after the firemen were upon the scene, but if it had not been for the prompt response of the firemen, Colum bus would have had a fire long to be re membered. A south wind was blowing, and as this building is situated between the power house and the Columbus Roller Mills, which is owned and operat ed by G. A. Schroeder, considerable damage could have been done had the fire gained much headway, but the dam age done was very slight. As the firemen were returning from the power houee the fire alarm was sounded again, this time they were directed to the second fire district, where upon nearing the fire it was found to be a small prairie fire about fifteen blocks from a hydrant. With a little assistance the people in that vicinity bad little trouble in extinguish ing the flames. In either case it is un known just how the fires originated. Uiitcrlas 1,1, WHOLE NUMBER 1,923.
