In spite of the annual and aometi
more frequent occurrence "circus day,"
the majority of the people of this city
are always ready to welcome the white
tents and red wagons. Now that the
date fixed for the appearance of the Ha-geabeok-Wallace
Combined Shows is al
most here, the interest is becoming; acute
and thousands of people are planning; to
visit the shows. There are people who
really object to the coming of a circus,
especially one of the magnitude of the
Hagenbeek-Wallace Shows, because of
the tendency of the average citizen and
countryman to make it a holiday. Such
people, however, are born pessimists and
undesirable citizens and should be sup
pressed. They forget that, while they
may be able to attend and enjoy the
theater every week, most of those who
attend a circus are only -able to do so
about once or twice a year. The latter
is the amendment of all classes of peo
ple, because it is a bargain counter of I

Monday night a meeting of the voters
of Alexis township, Butler county, which
was called by the township officers, wss
held for tbe. purpose of discussing the
proposition of assisting in the building
of a bridge across the Platte to replace
the present one. A delegation of Colum
bus men, composed of A. R. Miller, G.
W. Phillips and Louis Lightner were
present at the meeting and took-part in
the discussion. The Alexis township
people were quite anxious for the bridge
and were willing to do everything possi
ble to assist in making it a go, but they
were .adverse to voting bonds at the
present time, one of the reasons being
advanced that tbey would be compelled
to maintain their end of the structure,
which would be quite an expense. This,
however, seems to be awrong idea, as
tbe law provides that tbe counties, and
not the townships, shall- maintain such
After several weeks of suffering with
acute kidney trouble, Elizabeth Doersoh
died at the home of her daughter, Mrs.
C. A. Lutz, Wednesday evening. Mrs
Doerscb wss born in .Rosenthal, Hansen,
Germany, in 1825. She came to Platte
county twenty-five years ago, after tbe
death of her husband. For a number of
years she resided in the neighborhood
north of Columbus, keeping house for
her son-in-law; Henry 8chultz. She is
survived by one son and four daughters,
John Doereoh and Mrs. C. A. Lutz of
this city, and Mrs. Emil Heier and Mrs.
Wm. Hageman of Milwaukee, and Mrs.
Henry Brock of Fort Worth, Texas.
Funeral services were held Saturday at

and burial was in the Columbus ceme
tery. Tuesday of this week, L. F. Phillipps
sold bis interest in the firm of L. F.
Phillipps & Bro. to Frank Budat and
the new firm took charge at once. Mr.
Phillipps bought the business about six
teen years ago from Carl Schubert and
has since devoted his entire attention te
it and built it up very succeasfuly.
8ometime ago he sold a half interest to
his brother Alvin. who still retains it
and the new firm is Phillipps & Rudat.
Louie thinks he is entitled to a well
earned rest and says that his summer
address will be Buck island, where he
will, take care of the game and fish.
Painting the water works stand pipe
inside and out was completed last week,
and while this was being done the stand
pipe was given a thorough cleaning.
During that time it was necessary to
pump into the mains and use direct
pressure, and it was soon discovered
that the new pumps were working too
fast for the amount of water consumed,
especially during the night. In order to
handle the supply properly it was neces
sary to fire np tbe boiler at the old city
plant and pump with steam, as in that
way the supply could be regulated.
Judge Thomas has overruled the mo
tion for a new trial in the case of Ed
