Something like a bald eagle came
down upon a goose the other day, near
Mr. Gerhard Loseke's dwelling on Lose
ke creek. It is described as a very heavy
bird, one person saying its legs were as
large as those of a child six years old.
Several farmers in the northern part
of the county have expressed a willing
ness to exchange their cattle for sheep,
at the first favorable opportunity. We
have no doubt on the question of sheep
raising in Nebraska properly conduct
ed. We are informed that a great deal of
timber has been stolen from timber land
on Taylor creek, this county, and that
the school land on Ihat creek has been
entirely stripped of timber: Those who
have timber there, had better look after
it a little.
The weather prophets in Nebraska are
sadly at fault, they cannot tell what a
day may bring forth. Saturday last the
dark clouds rolled up under a strong
wind, the lightning flashed, and a sound
came out of the clouds resembling the
discharge of distant artillery. That was
Nebraska weather at Oolumbus on the
?th day of November, 1874.
Monday evening the board of directors

On next Thursday night November
12ib, one of the most faseinating xtories
ever told in play will be the offering at
the North Theatre. "The Girl and the
Stampede," a story of the life encounter
ed upon the American frontier in the
early days of strife with the invaders of
Wyoming. The author baa endeavored
to picture in a true manner the scenes
and incidents just as encountered and
experienced by those who braved the
storms and hardships of life in the days
that the play demonstrates. The piece
comes to us with the very highest en
dorsements as 'to its worth and from
authentic reports from the various cities
in the east where the company, appeared,
it is a production of exceptional merit.
The western play has been an important
factor in the amusement field during the
past five years. A natural question pro
voked by this circumstance is summed
up in the word Why? A person who has
seen "The Oirl and the Stampede" will
not hesitate a monent for the proper re
ply. They will say the western play ex
ists and is patronized and admired be
cause it pulsates with youth, life and
manhood. It presents scenes and char
acters with which we are familiar from
present recent associations. It revives
memories of the most cherished days
among the strongest reasons for its pop
ularity is the fact it is clean and whole
some. It shows sturdy, manly men and
women. A representation of such men
and women and life as lived in the west
in the earlier days attract the best which
is today the largest element in any com
munity. A man of family finds in it the
spirit he would inculcate in his eon and
daughter and have them admire. The
western play restores to all who have be
come tired many of the inspiring illu
sions of their early days. It has de
lighted a million people in the past three
years, it will- be the same for you. 'The
Girl and the 8tampede" will be the offer
ing next Thursday night.

Tuesday of this week the Oolumbus

received between two and three thou

they planted in the various ponds, in
cluding Stevens' lake and the ice house

a consignment of bull frog tadpoles, and
these were also distributed. The asso
ciation has been doing 'some good work
since its organization and those having
charge of the fish and game of the state
are willing to help them whenever they
can. The result of the organization will
be that when other parts of the state
are without game and fish this locality
will be supplied.
