A Bplendid sample of rye was brought
to the Journal olllce last Monday from
the fields of Mrs. Brady, who resides a

has a healthy appearance.

A western farmer suggests the use of

aa follows in relation to the. matter: In
Kngland and Ireland they have no fences.
I have een them m this country oc
casionally, but 1 think if our farmers
knew their practical merits, we should
see them oftener. Only dig two ditch
es, three feet apart, three feet widrt and
two feet deep. Throw the dirt from the
ditches on the space between, beat it
down until it has some hardness, and
cive it enough slant to prevent caving,
aud you have a fenco for a lifetime. In
most cases here we need no turf or whim
hushes as they do in the old country,
for in a year the bank will be covered
with a luxuriant growth of blackberry
bushes answering every purpose. Even
where limber is plenty, we can uiBke
this fence cheaper than moat any other.

The following from the Crete News
tells of the musical success of a former
Columbus girl, who will eoon return to
this city with the family and make her
home here: The junior recital given last
Saturday evening by Miss Edith Waite,
voice, Mies Dora NeumeUter and Mr.
Richard Gray, piano, was one of the
most pleasing concerts of the season.
A large audience was in attendance and
many expressions of pleasure and enjoy
ment were heard on all sides. Miss
Waite, pupil of Mrs. Luce, has developed
very remarkably in the past year. Her
voice is clear aud full und under perfect
control at all times. Her selections
were of a wide range and proved her
equally versatile in all styles of vocal
composition. Her singing waa a great
surprise to many of her friends. Purity
of tone, distinct enunciation and good
expression made all her numbers very
enjoyable. Mies Neumeiater proved
herself a very talented pianist. Her
numbers were all clearly executed, show
ing careful training. She possesses an
unusually musical and pretty touch and
has a sure and Grin technique, She plays
with the greatest case, entering into the
spirit of each composition . Her playing
throughout was greatly admired by all
and a brilliant future is predicted for
her. Mr. Gray showed himself to be a
genuine musician. His playing is mast
erly and forceful, showing a well balan
ced mental equipment as well as a good
technique. All of hia numbers were
played with ease and precision and a
general air of repose and confidence.
Hearty applause greeted all bis selec
tions. The concert closed with a dnet
by Miss Nenmeister and Mr. Gray which
was enjoyed by all. The entire concert
was u pronounced success.
At the ripe old age of eighty-two years
Louis Phillipps, sr , passed away at the
home of his daughter, Mrs. Plath. Mr.
Phillipps was born in Germany, October
27, 1828, and was 83 years 7 months and
'. days old at the time of this death. At
the age of twenty-eight he left his native
land and came to America, settling in
Knoxville, 111., where he took oat bis
citizenship papers. From there be went
to Macon Oity, Mo., where in 1853 he
married Elizabeth Hoffman. In 18C1,
when the country was still new, they
came to Oolumbus and located on a
homestead south of the river, while he
worked at his trade of a shoemaker, and
opened up the first shoe store in the city.
Later he engaged in the grocery busi-
noes, and during considerable of his I
fifty years1 residence here was identified
with the business interests of the city.
Before coming to this country Mr.
Phillipps served in the German army
during the war of 1848. He leaves five
grown children, Mrs. J . J. Dodds of
Cambridge, J. C. Phillipps of Belgrade,
Mrs. L. Plath, L. F. Phillipps, aud II.
A. Phillipps of this city. Funeral servi
ces were held Sunday afternoon at St.
Bonnventuru's church, and he was buried
beside his wife.
Friday evening the city council hld a
special meeting to consider the proposi
tion of the Columbus Light, Heat and
Power company to establish a maximum
rate of fourteen cents per killowat, with
a discount of ten per cent for prompt
payment. The proposition had been re
ferred to the committee, and the council
turned down the proposition, preferring
the present rates to the ones proposed
by the light people. At the same meet
ing the light company submitted anoth
er proposition to the city for all night
service, making a price for such service
of 8100 per year for the arcs, in place of
$70 under the present agreement, and
20 for all tiight incandescent lights,
instead of $15, the price at presenL This

be taken up at a later meeting.
Just what to do with the water that
accumulates west of the Union Pacific
depot after a rain, seems to be puzzling
the engineering department of that road.
Soon after the street had been paved and
everything seemed lovely, there waa a
heavy shower of rain and the pond on the
paving resulted. An engineer and the
paving man came out and a flection of
the pavement wan torn up and relaid,
and the supposition was that the pond
would be no more, even if it did rain.
But it did not work out that way. With
the last heavy rain the pond returned,
a little larger than before aud a few feet
from the old location. Tuesday an
engineer came out again and the pave
ment taken up once more, and it now re
mains to be seen whether the offending
pond has disappeared for good.
Jacob Tfichudin, living in the Gruetli
neighborhood, across the river from
Monroe, was injured by a vicious bull
last Wednesday. Mr. Tschudin. with
his sons, was preparing to ship a car of
cattle and the animal, which had never
shown a vicious disposition before, was
with the herd. Withont any warning he
attacked Mr. Techudin and knocked him
down, and trampled him, bruising him
considerably. Fortunately the sharp
horns of the animal were not brought
into play, or his attack might have re
sulted differently. Mr. Techudin was
not injured seriously, but he will feel the
effects of the encounter for some time.

Columbus will not celebrate the Four
th this year, as was planned at first.
The committee on soliciting funds did
not meet with an enthusiastic response,
and it became evident that Columbus
business men were not in favor of having
a celebration this year, and the commit
tee finally concluded to call the celebia
tion off. The Kearney-Columbus ball
game will be the only attraction in the
city that day.
Last week Geo. Lehman completed
arrangements to again secure control of

Arrangements for Oolumbus races
next week are practically completed.
The entry list has been published, and
for the events of the three days there
are over one hundred entries, and many
of the horses have been at inter-state
meets. The management and stock
holders of the association are boosting
harder than ever this year, to make the
meet a success, notwithstanding the com
paratively early date. Arrangements
have been made for special trains on the
branches the last day so that people who
attend may return that same day.
Some time ago the board of supervis
ors of Platte county presented a bill to
Butler county for their share of the
amount expended in repairing the south
end of the Platte bridge, the work
being done last winter. A few days ago
Chairman Scbwarz of the board received
notice that the bill had been rejected
by the Butler county board and that
they did not propose to pay anything
toward the btidge. Upon receipt of this
County Attorney Hensley was instruct
ed to bring suit against Butler county,
and compel them to pay their propor-
I tionate cost of the repairs.

With the exception of Monday, the
board of supervisors have been in session
this week as a board of equalization this
week, and it is only a matter of form
this year, as there are practically no com
plaints. Monday was the date for the

Thursday's game with Fremont went
fourteen innings, Columbus succeeding
in scoring in the last inning. A shower
interfered in the twelfth, but the game
was continued after that.

Secretary Putnam was in the city Sua
day afternoon, returning to the boys"
camp early Monday morning. He re
ports that everything ia coming along
fine. Although soaked to the akin the
first day ont, the boy soon dried them

some ideal weather. Several returned
Saturday and Sunday, but the others
are sticking it out, and declare they
would stay all anmmer if allowed to do
so. The camp is nicely located on Joba
Blaser's farm, fifteen miles west of the
city. Mr. Putnam attempted to get
three men to go along as leaders, but
waa unable to do so, and consequently
be is now in sole charge of the camp.
The amount of work he baa to do can
only be understood by those who have
attempted to take care of twenty hungry
mischievous boys for a few days. Sever
al have visited the boys during the last
few days, and of course were given a roy
al welcome. Mr. Putnam expects to
bring them back to civilization Thurs
day, and needless to say the town will
wake up a little when they arrive.
