Mis. Martha Walts went to Norfolk
Tuesday evening to visit her sister, Mrs.
W. S. Fox, and attend the meeting of the
North Nebraska Teachers' association.
Oaring -the last six months the sub
ject of early closing of the stores has
been up for discussion on different oc
casions, and at one time it was thought
ttie Commercial club would take action
regarding it, but owing to the fact that
very few merchants were present at the
meeting, it was postponed. Bnt the
clerks, who are as much interested as
anyone, decided to take bold of the
matter, and the result was a meeting
held at the Firemen's hall Tuesday eve
nine, at which fifty-two clerks where
present. An organization was effected
with Henry Ott, president; Carl Becker,
vice president; Dan Echols, secretary;
and Mrs. A. M. Covert, treasurer. The
organization is not solely for the pur
pose of securing early closing, bnt to
promote a higher Btandard of efficiency
among the clerks, and also adjnst any
differences that may arise between the
clerks and employers. There -will also
be a social side to the organization.
The president appointed a committee to
draft by-laws, to be presented at the
next meeting of the organization, to be
held upon call by the president. A com
mittee, with W. H. Murry, chairman and
Miss Emma Hoppen and Carl Becker are
circulating a petition asking all the
merchants to close at six o'clock, with
exception of Saturday evening, and dar
ing the holidays. The clerks believe
that it will be just as convenient for the
pnblic, after becoming accustomed to the
new order, as at present, and that the
buying will be done between seven in
the morning and six in the evening.
There are a number of cities in the
state no larger than Columbus where
the early closing is in vogue, and the
clerks of this city are going to ask for
the same privileges here.

Besides electing six members of the
boird of directors Monday evening the
Commercial Club discussed the Platte
river bridge proposition. L. A. Carna
ban, president of the Commercial college
addressed the meeting in the interest of
that institation. Following are the di
rectors elected: First ward; O.- W.'
Viergutz, Louie Held; Second ward,
Sam Oass, Jr., L. F. Phillipps; TLird
ward, Gus Becher, jr., KS. Dickinson;
Fourth ward, M. D. Karr.G. W. Phillips.
The board of directors will elect the
officers from their membership, at a later
date. Friday night the annual ban-,
quet of the dob will be held at the Or
pbeos hall, and the committees in charge
report that arrangements are almost
completed. From the number of tickets
sold at present, indications 'are that the
two hundred mark will be easily reached.
The list of speakers, which includes
Senator Burkett, Governor Shallenber
ger and General Manager A. L. Mohler
of the Union Pacific, assures an excellent
treat in the speech making line. This
year the banquet will begin at seven
o'clock prompt, and those in charge wish
this to be borne in mind by alt .who at
tend. Up at the city water works, where
Pete McCaffrey makes smoke, there has
been a gathering every Sunday of fisher
men and those who think they know all
kinds of ways to fool the finny tribe.
Most of you have heard some fisherman
tell of how he bad the "daddy of them
all" almost landed, when something
happened that allowed the old fellow to
cough up the hook, spit it out and wink
the other eye as he headed up stream
lookisg for more fresh bait dangling
from some poor "fathead's" ten dollar
fishing outfit Well, last Sunday the
gang was pumping some pretty strong
ones into a couple of the new members
when one of them starting to leave turn
ed at the door and made the remark
thai he had been a victim of "hot air"
fish stories in different parts of the
country for a number of years, but as
the fishing season opened this'week he
hoped the old yarns would be placed in
cold storage, and something done to
substantiate them. He must -be a native
The effect of filing complaints against
Union Pacific conductors for blocking
crossings unnecessarily has been much
in evidence the last few. days, and it
looks as though the officials were more
than willing to meet the public half way.
Formerly, when two trains met at this
place, the second one would pull in just
before the first one was ready to leave,
resulting in blocking of a crossing from
fifteen to twenty minutes. But the last
week this has been done away 'with, and,
the second train does not pull up across
the crossings until the first one has
cleared them and given all who wish an
opportunity to cross. Other trains re
frain from blocking the crossings any
longer than is absolutely necessary, and
if this policy is continued there will
be a much better feeling toward the
railroad in Columbus than heretofore.
Few plays of recent years have made
the bid for popular favor that "The Cow
Puncher" has since its production. It is
from the pen of the well known author,
Hal Reid. Beginning with our 8anta
Clans days we paint startling pictures in
our mind of the great and boundless
west. It is a field that affords a wonder
ful scope for our imaginations. And
the cowboy with broncho and' lariat,
wild and generous nature, has always
been our hero, and stands on the bul
wark of American independence. Mr.
Beid has made his characters live true
to life. W. F. Mann has chosen players
suited to each individual part and sur
rounded them with a lavish scenic pro
duction. "The Cow-Puncher" will be
seen at the North Theatre on Saturday
April 3. For one night only.
Mrs. Wm. Luge, residing eleven
miles north of this city, passed away at
the family home Thursday afternoon at
1:90 o'clock, death resulting from a com
plication of diseases. She had been in
poor health for the past year, and since
December has been confined to her bed
most of the time. Mrs. Lange, nee
Katherina Albers, was born in Germany
in 1850, and was at the time of her death
fifty-nine 'years of age. She was the
mother of two children, William and
Mary, who with their father, Wm. Lange,
mourn the loss of a kind and loving wife'
and mother. The deceased also leaves
one brother, Wm. Albers of this city.
The funeral was held Monday afternoon
from the Shell Greek Baptist church
and interment was made in the cemetery
near the church.
The last of the two new electric pumps
at the city water works is now being
installed. When the meter was placed
ten days ago the connections for the new
pumps were also put in and the one
new pump connected up, so all there is
to do with the second one is to place it
on the foundation that has been built for
it.' This second pump takes the place
occupied by one of the old steaai pump,
and .this had to be removed before the
foundation could be built. Motors for
the new pumps are here and placed and
all that is necessary to connect them up
is to lay the cable from the power boaee
to the station. This will be placed
aboat two feet under ground so that
there can be no interference with it. in
