North returned from the Bleak Hills Monday, where he went on a quick business trip. He says that gold duet ia plentiful, especially at Dead wood which ia tolerably strong evidence that it is a good mining country. One of our Platte county land ageata eaya that Platte oouaty ia not receiving proper share of imaugratioa. Ha com plains that the citizens of Columbus do not take pains to talk up the advantages of Platte county for eettlers as against the newer counties; that our land ia fully as good, it not better, than the new counties adjoining it, that our markets and ready access to market are much preferable to any other, and yet we do not receive oar just share of immigra tion. He explains by saying that part ies coming here with a view to purchas ing land stop 'at the Clother or Ham mond house, and that they . naturally come into conversation with farmers from other counties who present the claims of their respective localities for consideration, and thus the immigrant ia induced to go elsewhere. Our friend does aot wish to be understood as oen earing these farmers for trying to secure immigrants, but he does not believe that our own people are active enough. If the citizens of Platte county would make an effort to talk up their own lo cality he believes that we could retain a large share of the immigration to this section of the state, and thus immensely increase the value of land in Platte coun ty, and greatly benefit every business interest of Columbus.

The aatbor, who wrote that other phenominal ancoeea, "The Holy City" which we also hope to thu aeaaon, has ehosen for the action of the piece the most romantic penod in the history of Mexico, the brief reign of the unfortunate Maximillian. The character of Agnlia, the desoendent of the Monteznmas, the last of a race now extinct is a poetio creation whiob ap peals to oar uugiaation. The other characters of a long and interestiog oast are equally strongly drawn. The special: ties introduced by the comedy element are strictly in keeping- with theatraos pbere of the surroundings and the bit of sword-play in the duel soene, second act, is aa pretty an exhibition si one oould witness.

Duasell & Son of this city were awarded the oontract by the city council last Friday night for putting down the five new wells at the city water works, their bid being t240. These wells will be located north of the present building and will be at a euScient distance from each other to not interfere with the flow of water. Work oa them will be com menoed as soon aa the neoessary material arrives. Besides disposing of the well matter the council provided for the re vising of the city ordinances by the city attorney, his compensation for the work being fixed at $175. When thia work is completed, the council will then be in a position to ascertain the oost for print ing tbem, and should it be within the reach of the appropriation, thia will be done. B M. Garfield's "The Girltbat'sall the Candy" played before a good bouse at the Academy last night. In the langu age of the poet, it was some show. Hans Snitzel, played by Edward Niner was the main malefactor and Hans did hie duty. His big hit of the evening was the song "Paradise" in the last act Aramute by Miss Juliette Niner was the girl who peddled the candy,' her big. feature being when she tossed a big backet full of Candy biases to the audi- enoe. George -Clark played Adolphue Busch the retired brewer. H. L. Bich ardson played the minister, and Hiss Pansy Waldin played Kathryn Busch. The attending chorus was more than pleasing. Saginaw Courier Herald, Sept. 23. North Theatre Monday Dec. 27. An order has been received by Post master Kramer from the department directing. the rural carriers to make a report of all unmulable packages carri ed by them during, the month of Jan uary, 1910. This will be done by all the carriers in the service, and it is quite probable that the dta obtained will be used in connection with propos ed parcels post legislation. And in con nection with the rural service, another order has been issued regarding the penny nuisance. This is one thing the department ia trying to put atop, to and instructs the carriers and postmasters to use their efforts to induce patrons to place postage on their mail instead of depositing pennies in tbe boxes. 1 Lsst Wednesday afternoon Mrs. S. C Gray met with a very serious and pain ful accident. She had walked over to the home of her son. C. .C. Gray, and was stepping up on the back porch, when she slipped on some ice and fell, dislocating and fracturing her hip. Aa there was no one at home at the time, but Mrs. Vallier, who lives across the street, came to her. assistance, and suc ceeded in getting her home. On account of her advanced age, she being aboat seventy years of age. the injury is all the more serious, and at present abeia confined to her bed, and it will be quite a while before she will be able to be out again. In a few days tbenew mail box for the Union Pacific depot will be installed, and it will be in accordance' with the re quest of Postmaster Kramer that one be provided so clerks on passing mail trains could take out the contents. The boxes are provided with two locks one for the city carriers and the other for the postal clerks on tbe trains. Notices will be posted on the boxes telling what trains take mail from them aad also .what hours city collections are made. These new boxes will beappreoiated by the de pot employes, direct 'the person with a letter to the box. aad give the assurance that it will be the quickest way for tbe letter to get started oa its journey. 0 v. u. neuiuuo, wno nee oeea extra eeaductor on tae Union famfio out of this city for some time, resigned this week and goes to Genoa to take charge of his father's coal baejneae at that place.

A St. Louis dispatch of December 18, tells of the last step in the Doxey ones, as follows; Charged with murder in the first degree in connection with the death last July of William J. Erder. Dr. Lorea B. Doxey of Columbus, Neb., aad his wife, Dora EV Doxey. are tonight held ia tbe city jail. No eommsaiea- tioa may paw between them except ia writing and that only after the jailor hat approved the missives. They are charged with responsibility for the death here on July 10, of William J. Erder, who died after a brief illness. Mrs. Doxey, it is charged, was married to Erder a few weeks before hie death. Analysis of Krder'e visoera revealed considerable arseaio therein. The in formation of the oircuit attorney upoa whicfi Mm. Doxey was brought here from Nebraska charged that Erder waa gtVsn poison in his food. Tbe court's action waa taken on the application of Harry Roeskopf, aeaiatant circuit attorney, who appeared in open court and announced that indictments had been1 found against Dr. aad Mrs. Doxey. He then asked that the warraate be issued, adchag that the iadiotmenU would be returned into court as sooa as they had been drawn up and verified. Thia will take several days. Both prisoners todsy asserted their in- noosneeot the charges lodged against them. They added that their attorney had instructed them not to discuss the As" the Missouri statutes do not recog nize accessories to crime aa such, Dr. Doxey is charged with being n principal although he was not in St. Louis when Erder was taken ill. The circuit attornev'a office 'assorts that evidence will be produced to show that he was in communication with Mrs. Doxey while she, according to tbe chargea wssjninistering to Erder aa tbe letter's wife Mini Kate Erder. sister of the dead man. asserted that her effort to solve the mystery of her brother's death will not. cease. MI will do all in my power to furnish evidence needed by the prosecution." said MhwErder. "When I first reported the matter to the police I waa told that the burden of proof was on me. I have produced the proof thus far and I will still take part in the case." Y. M. C.A. Notes. Mr. Kienzel is putting the baskets up in tbe gymnasium, getting ready for basketball.
