John Tannahill recently took up some
soil containing grasshopper eggs, plant
ed corn in it, set it near the stove,
wittered it and watched developments.
He had a not ion that the alternate freez
ing and thawing of t'he soiled destroy
ed the 'hoppers' but one day after the
corn was up about two 'inches, he noti
ced some of the little hoppers on the
stalks, eating away. On a square foot of
land he counted forty-two sacks of
grasshopper eggs, averaging fifteen to
the sack. Mr. Tannahill tys the eggs are
only found in hard soil, and are not so
universally distributed as some think.
We have never known of any hoppers
hatched here doing erious damsge to
crops. When we have been despoiled
it has been by the migratory kind.

Mra William Terrell died at her home
in this city Wednesday evening .of last
week. For thirty-eight years she was s
resident of this city. Death was due to
paralysis, of which aba was stricken the
second Toes lay morning preceding.
The following mention is taken from the
Telegram: "Mrs. Terrell was formerly
Mary May Turner. 8he was born in
Cadiz, Ohio, April 8, I860, and in 1871
came to Columbus with the family of her
father. Judge A C. Turner, one of tfae
founders of the Columbus Journal. She
was married to William Terrell August
9, 1900. Her husband and a foster son
are the surviving members of her house
hold. She was a tister of J. A. Turner,
George W. Turner and Mrs. E H. Jen
kins, all of this city. Mrs. Terrell was a
lifelong Christian, having early in child
hood identified herself with the Metbo
diet Episcopal church. Her most effec
tive church work was along musical
lines. For seventeen years she wss a
faithful helper as organist and ohoir
leader in the city. In the church and
among personal friends she was known
as one of the best and most noble wo
men, une wno had known her intimate
ly for years voiced this sentiment : 'Too
much cannot be said of her life. She
was the best woman I ever Vnew. It
is often said that church people practice
one religion in the church, and another
in the home. That could not be said of
Mrs. Terrell. 8he wss a true church
woman, and her faith was her guide in
her daily life at home and in society.
I can conceive of no higher example of
living than that displayed by the good
woman who has just passed from among
us.'" "A short funeral servioe was held
at the home 8unday afternoon at 2
o'clock, Bev. Boush of the Methodist
ohurch officiating, his very impressive
remarks being taken from tbe fourth
chapter of II Timothy, part of 7th and
8tb verst-s, after which burial was made
in the family lot in tbe Columbus
Graustark," tbe magnificent produc
tion under tbe direction of Meters.
Baker & Castle, which was the hit of last
season in New York and Chicago, is
taken from George Barr MoCutcheon's
romantic and thrilling story of a love be
hind a throne, in which a typical
American hero defies tbe tradition hedg
ing old world royalty and wins the hand
of the princess be loves, lenrts itself ad
vantageouly to dramatic purposes, and
the prettystftge pictures and romantic
and heroic spoken dialogue arouse tbe
patriotic pride and quicken tbe popular
pulse even more than the printed words.
Saturday evening of this week Union
Camp, No 131, 8oob of Veterans, and
Baker Post No. 9, Grand Army of tbe
Bepublic. will hold a joint installation of
officers at their ball. At this meeting
the date for tbe annual encampment of
tbe Nebraska department of the Sons of
Veterans will be decided on as tbe'local
camp assists in the entertainment and
they are consulted as to tbe time. The
state encampment will be held some
time in February, and as soon as tbe
time is fixed, Commander Beed will issue
orders to the different camps.
Last Saturday forenoon the fire de
partment was called to L. W. Weaver &
Son's coal yards, the blaze starting from
an overheated stove pipe. The coal
shovelers had fixed up a temporary room
in the west end of the sheds in which to
stay when not at work, and tbe pipe
from their stove, which extended throu
gh tbe roof, became too warm and set
fire to tbe root. The west end of the
sheds was scorched, but the damage
During the few warm days like last
week quite a good deal of snow melted,
and the water commenced to raise in the
river. At Monroe tbey had fixed a road
for hauling grain across the ice, com
pleting their work Thursday evening,
but Friday morning there was so much
water running over tbe ioe that it was
impossible for them to haul. But the
last cold snap has made tbe ice as solid
Thursday evening of this week tbe
Columbus bowling team will give their
first annual ball in the Orpheus hall.
One of the features of tbe evening will be
a bowling match in the hall during tbe
intermicsion in which tbe following
bowlers will take part: Ed Kavanaugb,
Joe Gutzmer, Morris Whitmoyer, Jap
Nichols and G. J. Hagel. The Orpheus
orchestra will furnish music for the oc
casion. Hard coal, of the nut size, which is
naed in the ordinary base burner, is a
luxury, so far as Columbus is concerned.
The first of tbi week there was less than
a car load in town, and as such freight is
moved very slowly by tbe railroads, it is
quite likely the present supply will be
exhausted before it is received. Dealers
report plenty of other kinds of coal to
meet all demands.
Lee Beaty of Cedar Bapids was in the
city Tuesday and Wednesday, a guest of
his brother-in-law F-ed Curtis. Mr.
Beaty had been to South Omaha with
two car loads of stock, and went on to

days with a brother and also visited
another brother at Falls City, Nebraska,

not less than a score of times' the past
week, and further than this thV paper is
not going to be sold. We will admit
that there was some foundation for talk
of this kjind for the past couple of weeks
but ainoe the deal did not go through
and we have had time to take a more
sober view of tbe proposition, we have
began to realize what a serious mistake
we came near making. For the coming
year we have made arrangement with
John Zavadil who has practically had
the management of the paper tbe past
year,' to continue in tbe same capacity,
only .that his interests and those of the
paper will be more closely identified as
we have given him a working interest in
the business. We propose to continue
adding to tbe improvement of the paper
and we earnestly ask the co-operation of
our subscribers and advertising and job
work patrons that we may be able to
make Tbe Democrat better and bigger

devote as much of bis time as possible

A young man that bad been working
at E. T. Graham's ranch for several
moBths is now in the county jail at
Schuyler, on a eharge of forgery. On
Saturday last he forged a check to the
amount of $10 here in Creston. This
oheck wss caahed by W. J. Lueschen.
The young man then went to Leigh
where he forged another check for $20.
This check was cashed by a saloon
keeper at that place. On both of these
checks he had signed the name of E. T.
Graham. Shortly after tbe man at
Leigh had cashed the check he began to
investigate whether the check was good
or not. Finding out to the contrary, he
immediately began to look for the young
man, and found that he had gone to
Clarkson. An officer was sent after him
and captured him at Clarkson late Sat
urday evening and brought him back to
Leigh. He was placed in jail until Mon
day morning when ho wns given a pie
liminary hearing. He plead guilty, and
was taken to Schuyler to await tbe aotion

man. Another high water mark for post
office business was made during tbe
quarter ending December 31, 11)09, the
receipts for this period being 15,479. To
compare this increase in the last few
years, this amount is over $300 more
than the entire year preceding Post
master Kramer'd nrst appointment,
which was $5,123. When city delivery
was established, four or five years sgo,
the receipts for the year were $10,000.
Sinoe that time there has been a steady
increase until in 1909 the total reached
$17,000. Business of tbe local post
office is a good indication of the growth
of a city, snd the showing made for Col
umbus very gratifying.

Grauatark is entitled to rank high
among the romantic dramas of the pre
sent day stage. It is replete with
strong human interest, is full of life and
spirit and tbe comedy element is much
and enjoyably in evidence. The hero of
of the play, Greenfall Lorry, is a rich
young American who pursues a mjster
iotis Miss Guggenslocker across two
continents to her home in the little
country of "Graustark," where tbe at
tractive young lady is a reigning prin
cess. Tbe princess is about to marry a
man for whom she has a natural anti-path)-,
in order to free her country from
a burdensome and oppressive debt.
The rich American, however, after hav
ing saved tbe life of a young ruler,
comes to the rescue and saves tbe nation
from bankruptcy and insolvency by pay
ing the debt. As a matter of course the
accomodating American is enabled to in
duce tbe princess to banish all ances
tral prejudices and to become his wife.
