Neither tbe summer sun nor wintry
winds have tanned Mrs. Ruth Eeoyon
a womau delegate to the letter carriers'
convention, aad well known all over tbe
United States for her persistence ia de
livering mail, rain or shine, along her
rural ronte. "I have not missed a day
since I went on over six years sgo," said
Mrs. Kenyoo, whose run of thirty-three
miles a day is out of Monroe, Neb. "Five
years ago the thermometer sank to 40
below, but I was after record and kept
on. My bands were frozen, bat I was
able to work next day just tbe same.
In saying I have not missed a day I
don't mean coventions, which the last few
years I have invariably attended. Then
one day last winter a blizzard was blow
ing sixty miles ah hour over the prairie
acd my customers did not get their mail
that day. I don't think that ought to
count either, for I rode into town on
horseback and the postmaster would not
give me tbe mail, saying that on account
of tbe wind it could not be handled. "I
have been in one runaway during these
years and have come near being in many
more, for my horses are awfully skittish
about automobiles. Seems as if they
can't get used to them and on a stretch
of improved road near Monroe there are
a good many chugging in tbe summer
time. The season is nearly over and I am
mighty glad. 'Yes, I take care of my
own horses, six of them, every night.
We are only required to have four, but
I can use the other two to advantage
even if there is no extra money for their
keep. I live at a farm house with my
father and mother, who are getting old
and my father rents out tbe farm. "We
are going to have a good convention,
don't you think? There seems to be a
good many coming, at all events." Mrs.

Rev. Li. R. DeWolf, who has been
pastor of the M. E. ohuroh in the city
for the past four years, has bten assign
ed the pastorate of the 8eward Street
M. E church of Omaha, by the confer
ence, which was held in Stanton a few
days ago. He went to Omaha Saturday,
where he preached his first sermons
Sunday. He then returned to this city
the following day to complete arrange
ments for moving bis household effects
to his new field of labor. He and his
estimable family will leave for Omaha
some time during the week to remain
permanently Jt-is,''inded,-with much
regret that people in general must part
with Rev. DeWolf and family and it is
largely through their efforts that the
Columbus church has grown and flour
ished as it has. During Rev. De Wolfs
pastorate the church has been remodel
ed and is almost free from incumber
ance. He will also be missed in tbe
ranks of the firemen and fraternal
orders, where he took a very active part.
In his church work he was always sin
cere and just and during his stay
in our midst the people in general loved
him, not only for the many good lessons
he taught us but for his noble traits of
character as well. Rev. De Wolfs suc
cessor is Rev D. I. Rou9h, formerly
pastor of the M. E. church of Tekamab,
and who comes here highly recommend

Drs. Carstenson and Hyland have let

erected at the corner of Fourteenth and
Kummer streets, and work has already

show the same as at -Cheyenne was
totalled in every respect. Thursday
2600 people were on the grounds, to wit
ness, the buoking and roping contests
and races'. The home trotting race was
one of the features on the program 'and
was won by Gns Becher horse, MDan
Brown," "Cyclone" being second, "Harry
Johnson" third and "Freddie 0" fourth.
The winner of the ladies' relay race, Miss
Nicholson.won tbe applause of the crowd,
her handling and riding of the wild
horses exciting admiration. The attend
ance Friday eclipsed that of tbe day
previous and brought a crowd of people
that amounted to a' regular jam, the
branches being especially well repre
sented, over 1,100 people arriving on the
two trains. In fact, no such crowd was
anticipated, and when tbe rush came
the hotels, restaurants and bus lines
were unable to handle them. The dust
and wind did not prevent the people
from filling all the available space at tbe
race track and also the additional bleach-
eis erected Thursday night Miss Nich
olson, who won the, ladies' relay race on
Friday was thrown from her horse just
as tbe race started, on account or a
broken saddle girth and the horse step-;
ped on her hand, but she pluckily re
mounted and came out winner. Tbe
roping, bucking and other coutests,on
Friday were similar to tbe day before,
but none the less interesting. Snoh
exhibitions are becoming 'rare, and the
men who perform are becoming sosroer
as the great grazing lands of the west
give way to the man with the hoe and
the wire fence. The great plains of tbe
west are being transformed into farms
or small grazing traots and herds of ten
thousand steers owned by one man or
firm are or will soon be numbered with
things that have been. Twenty-five or
thirty years ago, when the man with tbe
hoe poked his bead over the boundary
line of civilization in Texas and en
croached upon tbe domain of the cattle
kings, he was promptly shot. But times
have now ohanged. The range where
once fed millions of cattle and the cow
boy was mastecss he roped and branded
the steer, has been divided and sub
divided into farms, and the sod plow
and farm house now ornament' the land.
The domain of the cow boy and wild
steer has disappeared, and exhibitions
such ss were given in Columbus last
Thursday and' Friday will 'soon be, a
novelty even to people of the far west.
The rush to register for the Tripp
county (8. D.) land drawing is now on.
Several Columbus parties have already
registered and every train over tbe Nor
folk branch takes out a squad. When
the hands of the clock pointed to the
midnight hour Sunday,' and Monday
.was ushered in, registering commenced
in the different towns designated by the
government as registering stations. At
O'Neill twenty-nine notaries are at work
swearing those who desire a chance for
a quarter section in tbe big lottery. It
is estimated that when the word was
given that the hour for registration bad
arrived, five thousand people 'were in
line at the various registering booths at
O'Neill and the Northwestern specials
were pulling in at intervals of every two
hours adding to the crowd. One train,
running in fonr sections from Kansas
City, laided 2500 people Monday af
ternoon. The crowds going up the
Northwestern line from Norfolk are even
larger than the crowds going west over
the same road to O'Neill, Tbe country

a tract of land 38 miles wide and 53 miles
long. The soil is a deep black loam
with clay sub-soil and is covered with a
bountiful growth of the finest wild grass
es. There are five government town
sites recommended and all are well lo
cated and will attract the eye of tbe busi
ness man and tbe investor. Each of
these townsities is surrounded by the
best of land and as soon as they are
opened to entry to tbe business man
they will spring up as by magic and in a
few months will be oentera of attraction.
Another old settler has answered the

The Parker Carnival company closed a
very successful week's entertainment in,
this city Saturday evening. The com
pany occupied all the .available vacant
lots near the North opera 'house and
several of their attractions were placed
in the street. Tbe first of the week was
somewhat disagreeable owing to tbe
weather, but tbe latter part proved to be
very pleasant, and consequently large
orowds gathered on the grounds to wit
ness the different shows, both afternoon
and evening. The shows and different
amusements were very good, and of tbe
class that compose the modern carnival.
For several months past the Presby

he has accepted the same. He will arrive
in Columbus some time, during the week

terian church both morning and evening
this coming Sunday. A cordial welcome
is extended to the public to attend any
and all of the services.
It was in the year of 1857 that the
immortal Richard Wagner first conceived
his idea relating to the grand possibili
ties contained in the legend of tbe "Holy
Grail" for a wonderful spectacle and
drama. It was not until twenty-five
years later, namely 1882, that his idea
was carried out to his satisfaction and
the world was given the glorious work
of "Parsifal " It is said that his first
intention was to present "Parsifal" sim
ply as a dramatic production, but was
induced later to change his mind and
produce it in combination music form.
By his doing so, the world gained two
grand productions instead of the one.
It will forever remain as the grandest of
all music compositions. It will as surely
stand for all time as tbe grandest drama
ever written. It req oires a trained mind,
a cultivated musioian, to enjoy the music
of Wsgner. One must thoroughly un
derstand a thing to equally enjoy it.
But the simplest tyro in dramatic ex
perience can understand the exquisite
story of "Parsifal" and understanding,
cannot fail to enjoy it. It is this very
quality, simplicity, of tbe story, and
plot, that endears the play of "Parsifal"
to the hearts and souls of all those who
witness it. There sre no social problems
to dissect, neither are there any intricate
or-mysterious actions seen on the part
of any of the characters in the play.
But as a spectacle that appeals to the
visual senses, as a play that in its very
naturalness, soulful heart interest, ab
sorbing and thrilling plot that brings tbe
color to tbe cheeks with healthy excite
ment, that quickens tbe heart's action
with every ennobling instinct and
interest watching tbe gradual un
folding of the beautiful story, it stands
without a peer in the dramatic firma
ment. Such is "Parsifal," the play
that required a quarter of a century of
its author genius' life to make it what it
is today the drama of the world. The
Parsifal cngsgemcnKhere is for one per
formance at the North Theatre, Oct. 14.
