The worst used op flelds of grain that
we saw during the late grasshopper raid
were those of C. A. Newman. He said
Monday that he would have a pretty
good crop after all,
Abner Turner of the firm of Turner &
Hulst returned from Missouri last week,
where he bad been to institute the pur
chasing of a large number of sheep,
which the enterprising firm above named
will utilize on Nebraska prairies. Know
ing that many of our farmers desired to
purchase a few sheep we made inquiry
as to whether any of those to arrive
within the next month would be for sale
in small lots, but we found they were
just like the Missourians and all others
who have sheep don't like to part with
The Wild oats or Devilfc,-lariB, jae
they are more appropriately called, are
very abundant this year, especially on
the uplands, owing to the wet season,
and those who are herding sheep should
see to it that they are not left to suffer
by them. Where sheep are allowed to
graze all season you will find very few
of these peels, and they should now be
confined to those places for a few day?,
until the "darts" have dropped, as they
are now rapidly doing when there will
no longer be any trouble from them.
If your flock has been permitted to graze
where these darts grow it will be a
measure of economy, as well as mercy to
dumb animals under your care, to go
over your entire tloek and pull out every
one of these sharo. barbed needles. We
found in one spring lamb as many as
could be pressed into a coffee cup, and
in that number, ai least twenty-five that
had entered the flesh and several that
had caused festering sores The dart
strikes the fieece and through the mo
tions of the animal and owing to the
barbs of the dart, gradually makes its
way to the hide and into the llesh. Mr.
L. Gerrard informs us that he has known
wolves to die from the effects of these
darts, and, though we do not think that
the sheep would lie troubled so much
with them, because of the peculiar kinky
Bature of their covering, offering greater
resistance to the penetrating power of
the barbed darts, yet we think the mat
ter of sufficient practical importance to
warrant especial care on the part of
shepherds. You will not neglect it if
you value your sheep and think they
have any rights or feelings, "which you
are bound to respect."

On Friday last Mr. and Mrs. Charles
Hamer of this city received by telegram
the sad news of the death of their
daughter, Anna, that morning at Basin,
Wyoming. The news waa quite a shock
to the aged parents, as it waa the first
intimation they had of any illness of
their daughter. Anna Hamer was born
on the Hamer homestead two and one
half miles west of Monroe, this county,
thirty-eight years ago, coming to this
city with her parents when she was five
yeare of age. She attended the city
schools and was a graduate of the class
of 1890. She was a bright student and
after graduation was a teacher for many
years, both in her home county and in
Wyoming. On the 11th day of May,
1902, at Casper, Wyo., she was united in
marriage with Mr. Joseph Henry. They
resided on their ranch at Big Trail for
several years, and about three months
ago removed to Basin where her death
occurred on the 25th inat., the burial
taking place the day following. She died
of child birth. She leaves a loving hus
band, her aged parents, Mr. and Mrs.
Charles Hamer, of this city, and one
brother, A. J. Hamer, of Toledo, O.
Peace to her memory.
After suffering for several years with
cancer, W. II. Lewis passed away at bis
home on West Fourteenth street last
Saturday evening. Mr. Lewis was born
near Rochester, N.Y., Decembers, 1843.
At the outbreak of the rival war he en
listed in the Thirteenth New York In
fantry and served until 1863. He was
wounded in the second battle of Bull
Bun and left on the field for dead, being
taken prisoner by the Confederates, and
afterwards being paroled. After the
war he went to Wisconsin, and October
22,1881, married Catherine B. Munson
at Wilmot, that state. In Ootober, 1887,
they came to Nebraska and settled in
Columbus, where Mr. Lewis was employ
ed in the packing house, at that time lo
cated east of town. After thiB industry
was discontinued he engaged in the
stock buying business, which he followed
as long as his health would permit Be
sides his wife h leaves two daughters,
Miss Mary Lewis and Mrs. Forrest But
ler, both of this city. Funeral services
were held Monday from the home, being
conducted by Bev. Dibble, pastor of the
Congregational church, and burial was
in the Columboe cemetery.
Affiliation with the national assooia-
tjon.by the local clerks' Taagoe of the
city seems almost a certainty, as the
sentiment of the members, and especial
ly those who have taken the lead in the
local organization, is almost unani
mous in favor of this step. While the
clerks and their employers are on friend
ly terms, and it would hardly seem ne
cessary to do this, yet Columbus is a
growing city and now that the organiza
tion has been perfeoted, it's quite proper
to make it permanent. When affiliated
with the national organization, the local
will be better able to work for both the
interests of themselves and the employ
ers, as they are both interested in the
welfare of each other. The social time
enjoyed by the members of the league at
the Mannerchor hall last week was for
the purpose of talking over the feasibili
ty of taking this step, and at the next
meeting of the league in July the per
manent organization will no doubt be
Last Sunday afternoon the Platte co
unty rural carriers held their annual
convention at the home of H. B. Beed
north of this city. Besides the rural
carriers, substitutes and city carriers.
Postmaster Kramer and daughter. Miss
Florence, attended the convention. Offi
cers elected for the coming year were,
II. B. Reed, president; J. F. English, of
Humphrey, vice president; Q. M. Hall,
secretary; W. D. Benson, treasurer; O.
M . Hall, delegate; J. B Brock, alternate.
After convention adjourned refreshments
were served, consisting of ice cream and
cake. Besides transacting the regular
business of the convention, committees
were appointed and preliminary arrange
ments made to take care of the state
convention of rural carriers, wbioh
meets in this city September 6, at which
time at least 150 rural carriers will be
present as delegates.
Candidates for county superintendent
and county judge will have their names
on the primary ballot, the same as two
years ago, as the decision of Judge Cor
nish on the non-partisan law affecting
these offices was to the effect that it waa
unconstitutional. County Clerk Oral
has his primary call ready to issue, bat
is awaiting instructions from Lincoln
regarding the addition of offices affected
by the decision. So far in this county
there have been three filings for county
offices, iJohn Graf for county clerk,
Jerry Carrig for the new office of record
er of deeds, and H. C. Laohnit of Lind
say, who was formerly deputy sheriff,
for sheriff. These are all democrats, aad
so far no republicans have signified their
willingness to run for office, but the tic
ket will probably be filled up before the
time for filing expires.

For the last few months the business
men and farmers living in the vioinity of
Monroe bare been working to secure an
independent elevator at that point, con
trolled by the farmers, and it looks very
much as though they would have a bouse
ready to handle the wheat crop this fall.
.When the other elevator men discovered
that they were ia earnest about putting
up an elevator and practically had the
funda subscribed tbey were given an op
tion on the Omaha elevetor building at
that place, until July 10. The promo
ters of the elevator are now convassing
the stockholders in regard to securing
the Omaha house, wbioh would giye
them a chance to begin business at once,
and the proposition is meeting with
much favor, especially among the farm-
era. For some time the grain market at
Monroe has been such as to send all
grain to other towns, and those interest
ed in the new organization determined
to put a stop to the poor market and
bring their full share to the town. The
result was an organization which will be
handling the grain, and tbey will either
purchase the elevator already there or
build one of their own. It is the inten
tion of the organization to later handle
live stock, and probably during the win
ter engage in the lumber and coal busi
ness. Unable to withstand the shock of the
second operation for appendicitis, Miss
N'Rose Rasmussen died at New Meth
odist hospital in Omaha Wednesday
morning at 1230. Last August the first
operation was performed and at that time
it was known that a second one would
be necessary. Mies Rasmussen was
born in this city January 30, 1888, and
was a little over twenty-one years of age,
this city having always been her home.
She was a graduate of the Columbus
schools and taught in the Platte county
rural schools, going to near Elkbern last
year, and where she was again employed
as teacher for the coming year. After
the second operation it waa thought she
would recover, but Monday evening rel
atives were telephoned for, and she be
came worse rapidly and death followed.
Besides her mother she leaves one bro
ther, Albert, and four sisters, Mrs. Frank
Scbram, Mrs. Carl K. Becker and Olga
Rasmussen of this city, and Mrs. H. A.
Sanders of Edgemont, S. D. Funeral

of the attempted suicide of Mrs. Mabel

From here they moved to Omaha. Mrs.
Schneiderheinz declared on several oc
casions that she would take her life, but
'when she bought choloroform the drug
gist surmised what she was going to do
and gave her aloohol, with just enough
of the other drug to give it an odor.
Monday evening four sections of the
cement sidewalk in front of Hinkleman's
saloon, at Eleventh and M streets, bul
ged up about six inches, and cracked
some of the adjoining walk. No cause
is assigned for this peculiar action, but
some years ago the cement approach
from the street crossing was cracked in
the same manner. There are no tree
roots in the vicinity to cause this and
the only probable reason is that it was
caused by the excessive moisture, follow
ed by the intense heat of Monday.
Automatio block signals are being put
