We are infermed that Mr. J. B. Beebe,

in that country. We would not be sur
prised to hear of good quarries of build
ing stone being opened there before long.
If we could only secure navigation of

good point for the welfare of Columbus.

In a letter just received by P. J. Mc
Caffrey from Charles Hudson, who left
here a short lime ago for Wilkeeon,
Washington, relates a thrilling adventure
that recently happened to Mr. Hudson,
and we tell it in his language: "About
two weeks ago we went out hunting, and
of all the rough countries and timber so
thick that it is dark at noon, and I got
lost for two days and very nearly perish
ed with cold, but the good Lord must
have sent me the help I prayed for. for
I was just all in, when I found a man on
a creek, and he had the necessaries of
life with him that brought the kinks oat
of me. I had fallen in the creek and
had to swim out, and I was so wet and
cold that I do believe that if I had not
found that man when I did I could not
have stood it that night, for my matches
and cartridges were all wet and I could
not get a fire, bo yon see the Lord sure
sent that man to me so I should be saved
a little longer, and I promise that I will
not go hunting in such a rough country

H. B. Hall, ""the man who was struck
by Union Pacific train No. 10 last Wed
nesday afternoon, is now a patient at St.
Mary's hospital, having been taken there
immediately after the accident. The in
jured man is suffering from a bad cut on
the head, a bruised shoulder and a broken
arm. At first it was thought that he
might have received an internal injury,
but we are pleased to state that this is
not the case and although the injuries
are very painful none of them ate con
sidered dangerous. When the accident
occurred Mr. Hall was walking down the
track, intending to come to Columbus

to let it pass, but in all probability did
not step far enough away and was sttnek
by the beams on the pilot of the engine

Returns from the east indicate a
heavier vote for Taft, in many states,

home of Senator LaFollette, gives

heavy majority for the republican
Nebraska is very close, with Shal
leuberger running ahead of Bryan and
the democrats claiming his election,
and also that of Bryan. While the
cities went for the democratic ticket,
the country precincts are expected to
show gains for Taft and Sheldon, and
a good chance that they will win.
In this congressional, district the re
sult is doubtful, and democrats claim
Latta by a small majority, but here
the cities are for the democrats and the
country for the republicans. One
other democratic congressman, G. M.
Hitchcock,is elected,and Omaha gives
a small majority for Bryan with Shall
enberger leading him.

the way from 900 to,rJ,200, and the

mocrats had a splendid organization
and got out their full vote.
