J. E. Roberts of Butler county called
at the Journal office on Thursday of last
week, who informed ua that so far as he
knew the grasshoppers have in bis
country done no material injury to the
crops or garden. He also states that
the crops, so far as he has had opportuni
ty of seeing them, look well.
J. W. Witchey tells us that the little
whirlwind at his house on Tuesday of
last week mashed in window sash, lifted
the top logs of his house a sufficient dis
tance to knock the chinking oat and the
plastering off, tore off the tops of seventy-five
trees, eight to eighteen inches in
diameter, and palled one tree np by the
Sloagb grass makes a good roof for
sheds, etc., the longer the grass the bet

Tie in bnudles with the same'grass.'
Lay like shingles and take the bands off
before you lay them. Put it on as green
as possible. Lay the ends of the band
ies a little above the roof poles, the low
er layer may be held in its place by a
board edge against which the ends of
the grass may rest. The layers ought
to be say three to four inches thick, and
tied to the roof poles with wire or tarred
twine, say every four feet. On the
bridge lay the bundles having them to.

Busier to'-vnsliip, thib county, authorized
tiie turn or $1,500, tbfir diurof the coun
ty road ami bridge fund, to be need in
couBtracting a bridge acros the Platte
river south of Duncan, and Monday of
this week County Commissioners Habn,
Herman and Eystone of Polk county, ac
companied by Attorney Johnson of
Osceola met with the Platte county
board of supervisors to talk the matter
over. Polk county and the citizens re
siding in the precincts interested have
raised enough money to baild the struc
ture, with the aid of the $1,500 from
Butler township and they wanted to en
ter into a joint contract with Platte
county to build the structure. After
some discussion Supervisor Schwarz in
troduced a resolution giving Butler
township the privilege of using their
road and bridge fund for their portion
of the new bndge and also imposing up
on them the maintaining of their portion
of the structure after it was completed,
Platte county as a county assuming no
responsibility in the deal. This did not
seem to exactly meet the approval of the
Polk county representatives, and they
were requested to draw np a reeolution
that would cover the case from their
stand point, and present it to the Platte
county board. This they did, and the
resolution presented was practically the
same as introduced by Supervisor Sch
warz, which authorizes a joint agree
ment between Polk county and Butler
township in the building of the Duncan
bridge. Next Tuesday the supervisors
will meet with the Butler township offi
cials and representatives of thevarious
bridge companies and decide on the
plans for the structure, and later adver
tise for bids. This structure will give
the people on the Island southwest of
Duncan an opportunity to market their
produce at that point and be of great
convenience .to them. Should their
plans materialize favorably, it is expect
ed to have the bridge ready for crossing
by late in the fall, and sooner if possi
ble Whether or not Platte county will
elect a recorder of deeds this fall will be
decided by the board of Supervisors Fri
day of this week. Counties having a po
pulation of over eighteen thousand are
required to elect a register of deeds, and
as this county has a greater population
than that, the new office will be added.
This change, however, wonld not come
until next year, when the government
cencuB is taken, but this would makefe
the new official take the office in the
middle of the county clerk's term, and
as he would relieve the clerk of about
half the work he now has, it was thought
by some that the change could be
made better this year, and a register of
deeds and county clerk start in on new
terms January 1. If the register should
be elected this fall, it would be for a term
of one year, as that official is elected for
four years on the even years. And there
will be two offices omitted from the call
for the primary election county super
intendent and county judge, these being
non-partisan and not requiring a party
primary nomination. Besides this change
in the primary law, the date for hold
ing the primary is changed and also the
date for candidates on file, July 17 being
the last date for filing There will be
a county convention this year to select a
platform committee and also a new coun
ty central committee, and Chaiiman
Dickinson is preparing a call for it,
which, with the apportionment of dele
gates, will be published later.

tended and interesting monthly banquet

The Exposition Circuit Amusement
company are to present their organiza

Exposition, while not known here, comes
highly recommended, and under the
management of the above popular organ
ization is a sufficient guarantee of good

a varied nature that will be presented,

and up-to-date. Two bands will furnish
the music. Performances will be given

Last Friday morning as tbe Norfolk
passenger, due in this ciiy at ten min
utes to one, was coming into the yards
at Madison, the engine, baggage and ex
press car and smnkerVere derailed at the
switch. The train was in charge of
Conductor Fox and Engineer Hines.
After the wreck occurred the switch
was examined and found to be open and
locked for the .west siding. Who is re
sponsible for tbe accident is a question
to be settled by an investigation, as the
freight crew are positive that the switoh
was set properly when tbey left Madison
going north. The freight crew returned
to Madison and succeeded in getting the
cars on the traok and an extra engine
was sent np from here and brought in
the train at five o'clock. The engine,
however, was not gotten on to the rails
until late at night, and will have to be
sent to tbe shops for repairs. One theory
regarding tbe accident is that someone
tampered with tbe switch, as this was
done sometime ago and a railroad detec
tive has been investigating the matter.
The following from tbe Omaha World-
Herald tells of the aftermath of tbe ex
plosion of the acetylene gas plant at the
Thurston hotel last winter: "Rena
Hunter has brought suit in federal court
against George Lehman of Columbus,
Neb , for $50,000. She was employed as
a pastry cook at a hotel at Columbus,
owned by Lehman and operated by Dan
E. Peaaley. She alleges that on January
25 1909, she was badly burned by tbe
explosion of acetylene gas. She avers
that tbe pipes of the gas plant were
leaky, and that insufficient care was used
to protect the lives of persons employed
in the hotel kitchen. She says that it
was necessary to make forty-eight akin
graftings to restore her cuticle after tbe
As the names of tbe candidates for
county judge and county superintendent
are to be planed on a non-partisan and
separate ballot this fall, they do not
require a primary nomination. But in
place of this they are required to file a
petitioqof five hundred names, asking
that their names be placed on tbe ballot.
So far there are two petitions out for
county judge, John Ratterman, the pres
ent incumbent, and Judge T. D. Robison
of Humphrey. For county superintend
ent, F. S. Lecron,the present incumbent,
has bis petition out securing Bigners,and
so far he is the only candidate for the
office, but no doubt there will be others
before the time for filing expires.
