Columbus claims to be the very best
starting point for the Black Hills, as the
road traverses a settled country for
more than half the distance.
Lieut. Young informs us that the list
of those who will require aid to obtain
seed for Polk county has been swelled
from 386 to 452; for Butler county from
495 to 536. It is now generally under
stood that the appropriation made by
congress was for food and clothing only,
and it is supposed that the enrollment
being made for seed is designed for use
by the Stat Aid society. - ,
There were two gentleman in our sanc

Latest 1908 Fall Styles of
Tl.e oratorical contest which was held
in the gymnasium of the High school
Monday evening wa well attended. The
program began at eight-thirty. Profes
sor Britell addresed the audience for a
few minutes and stated that he was
sorry to imform his hearers that Super
intendent Conn would not be present as
he was called to Norfolk Friday after
noon by a message announcing the death
of a friend, there was also some very im
portant business which needed immedi
ate attention, and as it was a personal
request from the deceased, Mr. Conn
-felt in duty bound to comply with the
request. The first number on the pro
gram was a song by the sixth grade,
Mi68 Rorer being the instructor. Se
cond, a song by the pupils of the third
and fourth grades, Second ward, with
Miss Schupbach as teacher. Following
this Miss Maud E. Galley appeared be
fore the audience and chose for her sub
ject "Wild Zingarella" (A Gypsy Flow
er Girl of Spain.) The recitation was
well rendered. This was followed by a
song by the pupils of Miss Lucbsinger's
division of the third and fourth grades.
Following this fifteen little girls chosen
from Miss Turner's division of the third
and fourth grade sang two songs. Har
old Kramer then delivered a recitation
entitled "Roosevelt's Tribute to Lincoln"
(at Lincoln's log cabin home on the 100th
anniversary of his birth.) Miss Week's
then sang a vocal solo entitled "Florian
Song." "The Death Disk" a recitation
written by Mark Twain, was then de
livered by Miss Velma Cover. Then
Miss Elsie Jaeggi and Anna Marty
played a piano duet and Miss Marguerite
Willard played a piano solo. Rev.
Rouf-h, pastor of the M. E. church an
nounced the decision of the judges, who
awarded Miss Velma Cover first place,
and Bhc will represent the Columbus
High school in the State Oratorical Con
test which will be held in Norfolk soon.
The contestants were all members of the
Senior class and owing to the fact that
this was their first time to participate in
a programme of this character, we can
say that each contestant did splendidly.
The judges chosen to make the decision
were Mrs. D. Rurr Jones, Rev. Rouen,
and County Superintendent Lecron.
The gymnasium was beautifully decor
ated in the Senior and High School
colors and throughout the programme
was a success.
jMre. T. J. Lynam, who has been the
guest of her mother, Mrs. Thomas Lyoss
for several months, was called to Omaha
several days ago by a message announc
ing the serious illness of her husband,
who for the past year has been receiving
treatment in an Omaha hospital, where
he was suffering from a nervous brake
down. Shortly after her arrival in Oma
ha Mrs. Lynam was advised by the at
tending physician that her husband's
recovery was very doubtful. From this'
time.on Mr. Lynam continued to grow
worse until Wednesday morning at 4:30
when death relieved him from his suffer
ing. Mr. Lynam was a plumber by
trade and followed this line of work un
til his health failed. Deceased was born
in 1871, and was the oldest son of Mrs.
Ellen Lynam who now resides in Oma
ha, llis father passed away nine years
ago. In 1901 Mr. Lynam was united in
marriage to Miss Katberine Lyons, for
merly of this city, and to this union four
children were born, one boy and three
girls, ranging in age from seven years to
a babe live months old. Besides his wife
and children the deceased leaves a moth
er, two brothers and one sister, all of
whom live in Omaha. The funeral was
held in Omaha Thursday, morning at
nine o'clock. Relatives who attended
the funeral from this city were Mrs.
James Haney, and the Misses Nora and
The following from the Central Oity

Prof. Fritz W. A. Paul, the new leader of
the Columbus .City Band: Prof. W. A.
Paul and Miss Mae Porter were married
at Columbus last Saturday evening, Rev.
Neumarker of that place performing the
ceremony. It had been rumored for
some time that this event was to be
looked for, but nevertheless the friends
of the young people were taken some
what by surprise when the news was
given the following morning. The bride's
sister, Miss Margaret Porter, and Miss
Metta Cooper accompanied the contract
ing parties to Columbus and were pres
ent at the ceremony. The bride is a
Central City girl having been born and
raised here. A young lady of high con
nections, winning ways and accomplish
ed she has been prominent in social cir
cles here for many years. The professor
is a musican of rare ability, and came
herefrom New York. He especially ex
cels as a band leader, and to his training
the Central City Band owes' in a large
measure its recent high state of effloienoy.
His reputation in this respect has
become so generaL-that he has been en
gaged as leader of the Columbus band
at which point he and his newly wed
bride will make their home. Jfrof. Paul
will also instruct the bands at Schuyler
and North Bend.

The Columbus Fish aud Game Pr
tective association held their annual
meeting Monday evening at the Phi!
lipps sporting goods store. All the old
officers were re-elected for another year.
Good reports received from the pheR.'
ants released here last season, the asso
ciation have purchased a number of the
same species from Lee Rollins to be
released at tbe proper time, and besides
the bds they have arranged for ten
settings of eggs that will be hatched
under hens, to be liberated when able to
care for themselves. Last year tbe
association were fortunate in securing a
splendid lot of fish from the state hatch
ery, and will eudeavor to do the same
this year. A bill intfodnoed.in the leg
islature permitting seining in the Platte
river, above the mouth of tbe Loup,
brought forth a vigorous protest, and it
was tbe sense of the meeting that they
use their influence to defeat tbe bill.
This'year the association will introduce
the Hungarian partridge in this section,
having arranged for several pairs of these
birds, which will not be liberated, how
ever, until fall. New members are
always welcome in this association, and
the sport loving public should -get in
line and help the good cause along.

Columbus delegates to the state meet
ing of commercial clubs, held at Norfolk

G. Frischholz returned last Wednes
day from Pique, Ohio, where he wss
called on account of the death of his
brother-in law, Henry Lange. While in
Ohio Mr. Frischholz observed conditions
in that state as compared with Nsbras-,
ka. The locality where he was is plenti
fully supplied with electric railroads,
and as a consequence travel wss cheap

closed up, being bought by the trusts,
while others are rusning full time.
One of the strong candidates being
mentioned for mayor is Carl Rhode and
his friends have been urging him to ac
cept tbe republican nomination and be
lieve he has an excellent chance for elec
tion. For many years Mr. Rhode has
been identified with the business interests
of the city, and as mayor would give the
city a good administration . This will be
the first time that he has been an aspir
ant for office, and should he accept the
nomination his support will not be
measured by party lines.

l after birth the infants became ill snd
this illness terminated in lung fever, snd
for several weeks the babes were criti

the same until Friday afternoon when
Vincent, the stronger of the two, passed
away and on the following afternoon
death claimed Harold. The funeral whs
held Sunday afternoon from the resi
dence. Rev. Roasti, pastor of the Meth -list

One of tbe brightest and most enter
taining comedies wrilten recently is th"
Swedish-American play "Tilly Olson,'
tonounced to appear at the North Thea
tre Wednesday March 24. Tbe piece ia
a novelty in the way of Scandinavian
drama in that tbe leading character is a
yonng Swedish girl. The fair sex has'
been somewhat slighted by tbe construc
tors of Auglo-Swedish dramas hereto
f or. Several successful plsys of this olasa
have hitherto been of tbe sterner sex.
-'Tilly" will undoubtedly prove a quaint
and interesting type of stage creation.
Tbe scenes of the new comedy are laid
in tbe Northwest f nd tbe story has to do
with the tribulations of a daughter of
Scandinavia while serving in the capa
