Files of the Jonrnal Dec. 6, 1876.
An observing gentleman expressed
the belief in our hearing the other day
that the old sod houaes are not very
wholesome dwellings. They are usually
close and hot, and the walls, unless well
plastered, become impregnated with the
odors of the house, and seem to be sort
of a hot honsefor disease.
'I could get only thirty pounds of
coal," remarked a man in onr hearing
Saturday, Coal, is more and more each
year, becoming the standby for fuel. H.
.1. Hudson must hurry up the manufac
ture of his hay twister, so that more
families can supply themselves with fuel
at little cost.
The following is one one of the meth
ods of constructing afram? house that is
thought to be among the best; put up
the frame in the usual way; sheet it with
lap-boards, on which put tarred paper
aud siding; board up on the inside, be
tween the studding at about half the
depth of the studding, fill between that
and the sheeting with grout, then lath
and plaster. This, we believe, would
make a warm house, which is an unmixed
good in any climate. One of our sub
scribers purposes trying the following
method for a cheap house; walls two
feet thick, made of clay and grass, mois
tened, and tramped to a mortor by a
horse, then moulded into a wall similari
ly to the method of moulding grout
houses, except that the mortar should
be tamped, a roof projecting all around,
two to three feet from the walls, nails
with large heads driven into the wall at
- distances about six inches apart, then a
hard finish of water lime. This is said
to make a durable 'house and certainly
would be cheap.

As the time for Postmaster Kramer's
reappointment gets nearer, the antis are
redoubling their efforts to defeat him, if
possible. Chairman Dickinson journey
ed to Kearney last week to interview
Senator Noris Brown regarding the ap
pointment Last Sunday afternoon
theirreport was made ib the Blackstone
club, at a' meeting held in W. A. Mc
Allister's law office. Those present at
this meeting were A. M. Post, 0. J. Gar
low, W. A. McAllister, David Thomas,
B 8. Dickinson. Mr. Dickinson had
been instructed not to make a personal
attack on Mr. Kramer, as he had done in
order to secure control at the primaries,
but to insist that Kramers'a reappoint
ment would injure the interests of the
republican party in Platte county. But
altogether Mr. Dickinson's report was
not very encouraging, so" other tactics
were discussed. The claim that the re
appointment of Mr. Kramer would be
injurious to the republican party of
Platte county does not fit very well with
the fact that Mr. Kramer has the endor
sement of nine-tenths of the patrons of
the office, and the same ratio will hold
good among the republicans. Very like
ly the prophesy of the antis will not be
seriously considered, in view of their
promises and the disastrous defeats to
the republican party during the two
years they have been in power.
During the last week there has been
some important changes in banking
circles in this city. Last Wednesday the
German National Bank increased their
capital stock to $100,000, and the new
issue of stock was taken by O. H. Shel
don, O. C. Sheldon and Frank Rorer.
Two of the new stockholders of the Ger
man National were formerly identified
with the Commercial National, Mr.
Sheldon having been president of that
institution for about twenty years, and
Mr. Borer, until he identified himself
with the German National, being assist
ant cashier of the Commercial National.
Mr. Rorer resigned his position at the
Commercial National Thursday, and
Friday transferred to the German Na
tional. The German National increased
their number of directors to seven, the
two new members of the directory being
0. H. Sheldon and Frank Rorer. Other
wise there was no change in the officers
of the institution.
"The Irish Senator" headed by thBt
popular comedian, Mr. James McOabe,
will be the attraction at the North Thea
tre next Monday night. The presenting
company is a most capable one, which
has been selected by Mr. McOabe with
great care, only artists of recognized
ability have been enrolled on its roster.
A complete scenic equipment is supplied
and every detail has been worked out to
make the production one of merit. It is ,
the aim of the management to present a
high-class entertainment which will ap
peal to all classes of theatre-goers. It
is seldom that our patrons have the op
portunity of witnessing a first-class per
formance at the prices that will prevail
for this attraction. No seats will cost
over 50c and good seats can be secured
for 25o and 35c. Seata now on sale.
The city council are preparing to take
up the matter of providing new wells at
the city water plant. Engineer Martz
made the neceesary estimates, and the
necessary -funds have been provided.
Another matter of importance to the city
is the voting of water extension bonds,
and it is the plan of the council to have
$10,000 available from a bond election
this year and another $10,000 in 1910.
This amount will probably be sufficient
to make all necessary extensions for the
present and do away with the dead
ends. For fire protection these exten
sions are badly needed, as there is quite
a good deal of the city that cannot be
reached so as to have adequate pressure
in case of fire.
Friday morning is the date set for
the hearing before Police Judge O'Brien
of Dr. and Mrs. L. B. Doxey on a statu
tory charge. In an interview given out
to the press at St. Louis, Miss Kate
Erder of that city, who filed the com
plaint, said she would be present at the
hearing in this city. So far nothing has
been heard from the result of the exami
nation of Erder's stomach for poison,
and it is not known what the next move
of the prosecution will be. The general
impression seems to be that a charge
will be filed against Mr. and Mrs. Doxey
in St Louis and that they will be taken
The dialogue of "The Irish Senator"
is bright, witty and at all times interest
ing. The story abounds in many com
edy situations, which never .descend to
horseplay or vulgarity, which is too
often the case in many of the so-called
comedies, Onjthe contrary there is a
fund of wit and humor permeating the
entire performance which is distinctive
ly enjoyable and free from suggestive
ness. The company carry their own scen
ery and at these popular prices there
should be a crowded house. J
Never before in the history of this sec
tion of Nebraska have the roads been in
such a condition as at present is fact
it is very .seldom in the spring of the
year that they get as bad as they are now.
It is almost impossible for the farmers
to get to town with an empty wagonto

only fortunate part of the last storm
of rain and sleet, was that it did not

stem being reported.

November is not usually considered a
month for rainfall in Nebraska, but this
year it is the exception. C. C Gray's
government gauge measured 2.73 inches

of the snow that fell melted rapidly and
was about the same as a rainfall, but al

Eight hours a day will be tbe rule for
Columbus painters shortly after tbe

Painters' union have been formulating,
plans for tbe eight hour day in this city,

bosses on January 1, 1910, but that it
shall not take effect until three months
later. The new union numbers twenty
men, which is practically nearly all the
painters employed here, and they ask
this concession, which is in line with the
hours of other cities.
