Owing to the present condition of the
bond market the bids received for the
Platte river bridge bonds were far from
satisfactory, and in view of the conces
sions required by bond buyers, Mayor
Held and the council did not feel justi
fied in assuming the entire responsibility
of effecting their sale. A fairly good
offer had been made and accepted, but
was later withdrawn, and the offer of
Halsey fc Co. of Chicago for their pur
chase at 31,000 discount was before the
council. Mayor lleld decided to appeal
to the citizens for their views in the
matter and called a citizens' meeting for
Tuesday evening to discuss the proposi
tion. The case was laid before the
meeting and discussed, and in view of
the present situation the council was
instructed to accept the Chicago bid,
that being, in the opinion of many, the
proper course to pursue. In addition
to effecting the sale of the bonds the
council passed the levy ordinance. The
amount required for running the city for
the routing year is $40,000, and the levy
will be thirty-three mills. This is much
heavier than before, the laBt levy being
twenty-two mills. The reason for the
extra heavy levy aud estimate is that the
present fiscal year will he fifteen months
instead of twelve, or iu other words it
will extend from May :i, 1010, to August
Superintendent of schools U. S. Conn,
the new president of the Wayne Normal,
has forwarded his resignation to the
board of education, and at a special
meeting held last Monday night It was
accepted. This action on ihe part of
Superintendent Conn had been autici
pated for some time, and after the board
had taken action they requested the
committee on teachers to sift the list of
applicants and present names at the reg
ular meeting next Monday night. Among
those who have in applications for the
position of superintendent are Professor
Teach of Lincoln, Prof. Campbell of
West Point, and superiuteudent E. B.
Sherman, formerly of this city. Prof
Walton of Wahoo is also being consider
ed in connection with the superintenden
ry of the Columbus schools is one of
the desirable positions in the state, and
the board will experience no difficulty in
securing a first class man for the place.
Tuesday of this week, state conven
tion day, was the hottest day of the
year, so far, the thermometer registering
iS degrees. This is but one degree war
mer than several days this month, the
tueremometer iegiatering 17 several
times and once it reached this mark in
June. In the rain fall this year has
been quite deficient, and the only month
of the previous year that it was lighter
than this being May. when for 1909 it
measured .'5 02 inrhes while for this year
the precipitation was 3.42 inches. For
June the rainfall is much less than a
year ago, as the record shows 7.52 for
June n year ago as compared with 2 .'55
inches for the same month this year,
and for July this year the record is 1.70
as compared with 5 57 a year ago.
"The Soldier Girls of the Red Cross"
is one of the new songs and its composer
is a Columbus boy, J. G. McOormick,
general signal foreman of Union PaciGc,
now stationed at Lexington, Neb., but
located here for the last two or three
years. Mr. McCormick was born in
Columbus and is a relative of the Mc
Allister family, his father being one of
the early day druggists. The song,
which was written by Mr. McCormick
while he has stationed here, has brought
many favorable comments, several of
them being from officers of the Ameri
can Bed Cross Society. The publishers
of the piece are Jerome H. liemick A: Co.
of New York.

The Druggist on the Corner
Today is the last one of the third
Chautauqua held in this city. While it
ha3 not been u financial success, still it
is far ahead of its predecessors, and the
pi on ram has been exceptionally good.
The location of the grounds, in the heart
of the city, has been to its advantage,
and the crowds have been very good. It
is quite probable that the chastauqua
will be held next year, but the sessions
will not be as long as heretofore, about
four dajs being the limit.
In mentioning the list of candidates
filed for legislative offices the name of a
democrat. Then. Koch of Fullerton, was
omitted. Mr. Koch, who is a banker in
his home town, has tiled for the nomina
tion of float representative from the
Twenty-fifth district, and has for bis
opponent R. C. Regan of Platte Center.
This makes two candidates for each
party on the primary ballot for this nom

not only for Columbus Eagles, but for

slate. On that date Platte Aerie, No.
IK'H, will hold a big picnio at Stevens'
lake, two ami one-half miles west of the
city, and have issued invitations to all
the aeries in the state to be present. As
Columbus has taken quite a prominent
place in Esgle circle h in the state, and is
the place for holding the next state con
vention, no doubt many of the members
throughout the state will accept the in
vitation and be present at the picnic.
Route No. 1.
Monday night there was a fine rain on
Shell Creek and also at the Will Ernst
farm. The shower paesed over a limited
sera, it was very beneficial to the crops.
Farmers along the route are well
pleased with the quality of email graia
they are threshing. The outlook in the
spring was that the harvest would be
very light, but the opportune rains and
conditions have given them an except
ionally good crop.

very satisfactory and landed Carrier

the patrons would not be inconvenienced
by the change, the carrier notified them
by telephone, and they were Drenared

auto was made Wednesday and should
this prove as satisfactory as the first the
automobile will no doubt become a fix
