subject that corn planted previous to

with water, more or less rotted.
Guy C. Bariitim, sr., informs ua that
on laat Thursday the large hoppers, sup
posed to be direct from Texas, were on
the wing, but not in so large numlier as
to give themselves the appearance of

few of the wearied dropped down, which
he caught and t xamiued, and it is reas
onable to suppose Mr. liarnum knows
the genuine 'hopper.

The event of the year in lodge circles
in Columbus was the organization of
Columbus Lodge No 1195, B. P. O. E..
last Friday evening. For several weeks
local members of the order have been
preparing for this, and everything was
iu readiness when the Norfolk degree
team arrived to put on the work. Ac
companied by members of the order to
the number of about sixty, the Sugar
City team arrived in a special train about
8 p. m. They at once repaired to the
Orpheus hall, where the initiatory cere
monies were held, and proceeded with
the work. After the lodge, which starts
out with over a hundred members, was
instituted, the following officers were
elected: E. II. Chambers, exalted ruler;
W. U. Schroeder, esteemed leading
knight; George J. O'Brien, esteemed
loyal kniiht; Louis Lightner. esteemed
lecturing knight; Charles L. Dickey, sec
retary. Oua Q. Becher, jr., treasurer; Dr.
O. U. Campbell, tyler; Charles E. Pol
lock, C. C. Gray, Sam Gass, jr., trustees.
The Klks then repaired to the Maenner
chor hall, which had been tastefully de
corated, and were seated at the banquet,
which was served by the Ladies' guild
of Grace church. Colonel Carroll D.
Evans presided as to&stmaster and re
sponses were made by N. A. Iluse. editor
of the Norfolk Daily News, ltev. W. U.
Xanders and Edgar Howard. At the
conclusion of the banquet the remainder
of the work was put on at the Orpheus
hall, being concluded at about 5 a.m.,
Saturday morning. Deputy it- It
Ilorth of Grand Island, who has been
assisting in the organization of the Col
umbus lodge, had charge of the work.
One of the first steps taken by the new
ly instituted lodge will be to secure a
permanent home. Already they have
under consideration several propositions,
and will no doubt accept one soon.
June 1, 2 and :, Wednesday, Thurs
day and Friday, the Nebraska State
Sportsmen's Association will hold their
aunual tournament in this city under
the auspices of the Columbus Gun
Club. There will be 150 shooters in at
tendance from the various towns of the
state, aud a good program ha9 !een ar
ranged, consisting of ten twenty target
events each day, jack rabbit per cent
system. The grounds will be north of
GottschalkB grove, nortbeastof the city,
and the local committee have arranged
for lunch for the shooters, and also
plenty of shells on the ground. The lo
cal gun club has added $500 to the var
ious events. Officers of the state as
sociation are D. D. Bray. Columbus,
president; W. H. Ilhan. Albion, vice
president; G. A. Schroeder, Columbus,
secretary-treasurer. On Tuesday, May
:. which is practice day, there will, very
likely, be a number of events shot off be
tween the visiting clubs on that day.
This tournament promises to be one of
the largest and best ever pulled off in
the state, as great interest is being
shown by a great nian3T of the sportsmen
of the state.
Next Monday the Doxey trial will be
gin at St. Louis and it will he watched
with more tLan ordinary interest by Co
lnmbus people. Among those who will
probably go from here as witnesses are
Mrs. C. II. Buschman, ,0. F. Todenhoft.
A. P. Grover, C. J. Carrig and Myron
Wilson and OhaunceyGaeth. who was at
the time a clerk in the Dack drug store,
but now a resident of Schuyler. Mr.
Gaeth was employed in the drug store at
the time it is alleged that Dr. Doxey
shipped the poison to St, Louis. Boed
er .t Lightner, who were employed by
the Eders will continue in the case,
but they will in all probability be the on
ly lawyers from this city who will take
part in the case.
Jacob Laun, one of the well to do
farmers of Shell Creek township, resid
ing northeast of the city, committed
suicide Monday at noon, by shooting
himself in the forehead with a :i$ caliber
revolver. Mr. Laun had been despond
ent at times, and was subject to attacks
of this kind, and it is supposed that it
was one of these spells that caused him
to commit the rash deed. He was a
married man and leaves a wife and two
children. Funeral services will be held
Thursday at the German Baptist church
north of the city, and will be conducted
by llev. Kock.
Twelve inch water mains are being
put in by the Union Pacific to connect
their water cranes at each end of the de
pot, with the supply tank. This will
provide an ample flow of water and re
duce the time required for taking water
to about one-half. Trains are usually
through with their work before the large
tanks on the engines are filled, and a de
lay and blocked crossing is the result.
With the improvement this will be done
away with and much of the complaint
about blocked crossings will cease.
Washington dispatches of last Friday
in the dailies brought the information
that Senator Burkett had introduced a
bill to increase the appropriation for the
Columbus post office building to $75,000,
which is $10,000 additional. When the
bids for the building were opened it
was found that the cost would be more
than provided for. and instead of cut
ting down the plans the additional ap
propriation is asked for, 6o that Colum
bus may have that much better building.
Two well known Columbus people, O.

Saturday the state league season was
opened in this city, and there was a goal
attendance, despite the chilly weather.
Mayor Held pitched the first ball and
Chief of Police Schack was behind the
bat. and president G. Frischhols of the
Commercial club was at the bat.
Dolan's men opened the game by
landing on the Hastings pitcher for
three runs in the first and at the end of
the fourth inning the score was G to 1 in
favor of the home team. But Hastings
tied the score in the last half of the
eighth, and there was an exoiting finish
when Columbus scored in the last half
of the tenth. Score by innings:
Columbus 3 0 2 10 0 0 0 0 17

Hastings evened up matters Sunday
by defeating Columbus 4 to 2. An ex
cursion was run on the Spalding branch
and this swelled the crowd to over 1,000,
notwithstanding the day was cold and
disagreeable. Cook of Hastings put the
ball over the fence for a home inn.
Twice during the latter part of the game
the home team had the bases filled, but
were unable to score. The score:

played their first game of the series
Monday, but rain and muddy grounds
compelled them to postpone it until
Tuesday, when Columbus won the game.
In the first inning Clair, the Columbus
catcher, was forced to retire on account
of an injured linger and Kemp finished
behind the bat. Kissel was in the box
for the home team. Pasha of Columbus
was hit in the head by a pitched ball in
the seventh. One of the features of the
game was the double play from Melum
to Kemp to Dolan, in the fourth. Dolan's
hard and timely hitting won the game
for Columbus. Score:

Y. M. C. A. Notes.
E. F. Dennison of Omaha, spoke at the
Boys' meeting, and also at the Mothers'
and Teachers' meeting Sunday after
noon. The Y. M. O. A. is issuing a special
short-term membership for the summer
months. Privileges of full membership
toSeptember-2.7;V, Intermediated 2T;
Elementaiy boys $l.r0.
The boys department of the Y. M. C.
A. will run a camp during the summer.
For the benefit of parents who may want
their boys to go, the following brief out
line of the camp idea is given. The
object of the camp will be to give the
campers the lient time of their lives out
among the beauties of nature, and to
cultivate a manly and robust christian
oharacter among the boyB. The cam pers
will start just as soon as school is out
and stay about ten days. Not more than
25 boys between the age of 12 and 16
can go along. The camp will be organ
ized in suoh a way as to do away with
the common evils of an ordinary camp
of boys. A camp of boys, in fact any
sort of young people's camp, without
proper organization and supervision
does more barm than good. There will
be four men. one for every eight boys,
called ctrnp leaders, to help the boys
plan for and to have good times and
accomplish the object of the camp. Be
sides the usual camp-fire fun the camp
will include field athletics, base ball,
tennis, swings, hammocks, swimming,
boating, fishing, daily Bible Btudy and
devotional meetings. There will be
nothing lacking to make the camp lively
and enjoyable as well as character
building. The camp government will be
in the bands of a "camp council" com
posed of a representative from each
squad of boys, the head leader of the
camp and the secretary. No fire arms
will be allowed and every boy will be ex
pected to use good "horse sense," keeping
in mind the other fellow and the wsll
fareof the whole camp. The cost of
each lioy is estimated at about $3 00. A
refund will be given in case the average
does not go that high. Applications
can lie secured at the Y. H.C.A at any
time. The application must be signed
by both the boy and his parents and filed
at the Y. M. C. A. office on or before
Jnne 1st, with the fee of $3 00. The
money must be paid iu advance in order
to make necessary purcnasea. n is
hoped that a good bunch of boys will be
signed up for this camp and the earlier
they sign up the better it will be.

On account of the very bright moon
light, many Columbus people who arose
early Wednesday morning to see Hal
ley's comet, were somewhit disappoint
ed. About four a. m. the telephone
girls were very busy calling people who
bad expressed a desire to see the comet
at what was supposed to be the most
Tuesday of this week the Commercial
National Kank. which held a $2.o00
mortgage on the furniture of the Thurs
ton hotel, began foreclosure proceedings
and the same day landlord Peaslee gave
the bank a bill of sale of the mortgaged
property. At present the hotel is in the
hands of the hank, and meals have not
been served since Tuesday evening, but
the rooms are being used. Interested
parties are trying to effect a settlement
so the hotel can be opened up at once,
and the serving of meals resumed. Quo.
Lehman, who owns the building, had
the matter of enlarging it under con
sideration for some time, and may make
some arrangements to do the work this
summer. Mr. Peaslee'd lease dors not
expire until October 1 and it is probable
that a manager will be placed in charge
until that time.
Last Friday, during the absence of
Superintendent Oonu in Lincoln, the
senior class of the High school presented
themselves at the building, dressed in
overalls, mother hubbards and odd
wearing apparel, and principal Britell
sent them home to remain until notified
to return. When Superintendent Conn
returned he fully approved the course of
Mr. Britell, and later took the matter up
with the parents of the pupils who were
concerned in the prank. The meeting
was held at the High school building
Tuesday afternoon, and the parents
were practically unanimous in uphold
ing the superintendent in his action.
Superintendent Conn has taken a firm
stand against such pranks by the pupils,
and the only thing parents can do is to
uphold him. Such actions as those of
last Friday, while seemingly harmless,
cannot be countenanced, as they have a
tendency and will, ultimately, destroy
the discipline in the schools. All the
class returned to their studies Wednes
day, and the action in the matter of all
concerned will have n tendency to check
any future foolishness of this kind.
