We are reliably informed that an or
dinance will he introduced at the next
meeting of the city council providing
for the punishment of disorderly con
duct and disturbances or peace, the old
town ordinance under which our author
ities have been obliged to do their work,
not being applicable to the government
u' a city of the hecond class.
A private letter from George McNaiu
ara at Silver Creek. Black Hills, gives a
thrilling account of u light with Ihdians,
who attacked him and a party of five
others while engaged in their mines near
that place, and drove them into camp,
where they succeeded in diapering the
reds with no low-, of life to their party.
The IndianB numbered two to one
Three emigrant wagons from Dickin
son county, Iowa, passed through the
city Saturday, bound for Kansas. In
conversation with one of the party we
are told that the part of Iowa from which
they came had been cleaned out by
'hoppers hatched there tins spring, and
he had concluded that the state was no
more safe from the ravages of these peBts
than Nebraska or Kansas, aud in the
latter stock could be raised and fattened
on grasses, which the "hoppeis did not
molest.
The improvements that our city has
this seasoti made in the way of new side
walks epeaks well for its citizens and
city government. Nothing in the up
pearance of a city or town will more
strongly impress a new comer and stran
ger than the condition of its sidewalke,
which is. undoubtedly, as relating to en
terprise, a pretty good inde to the com
munity which they should accomodate.
For this reason, as well as for the gen
eral comfort which they bestow, we are
pleased to be able to say that we believe
Columbus to be on a par with any city
of its size in the state in the matter of
good walks.

Prof. It. M. Campbell of West Point,
and a former teacher in the Columbus
schools, was elected superintendent for
the coming year at the regular meeting
of the board of education Monday even
ing. Prof. Campbell succeeds Superin
tendent Conn, who becomes the bead of
the Wayne normal. Another resigna
tion was before the board, that of Prof.
I. II. Britell, who takes the department
of physical science at the Wayne normal
to which position he was elected by the
state board last week. Prof. Britell
was also an applicant for the snperin
tendency of the Columbus schools, and
in view of his record here, stood a very
good chance of being selected, but with
his resignation he also withdrew this ap
plication. After the fact of Prof, Bri
tell's appointment to Wayne became
known, the board received an application
for the position, but have not as yet,
considered it. There is also one other
vacancy to fill, that of the position held
by Mrs. Conn, who oIro resigned when
Mr. Oonn received the normal appoint
ment. Action will no doubt be taken to
till these two vacancies in the near fut
ure, aud the board adjourned to meet at
the call of the president, should they de
sire to take any action.

Warden of this city. Only immediate
relatives and a few invited friends wit

ding dinner was served. Mr. and Mrs.
Wordeu are both Columbus young peo
ple, Mr. Worden residing here until live
years ago, when he took up a position in
the Exchange bank at Ogallala and
was finally promoted to the position
of cashier. The bride is the daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. F. W. Farrand and has
been a resident of the city for a number
of years, and attended the city schools
with the groom. Among those who were
present from out of town were Mr. and
and Mrs. L. A. DeVoe and Miss Margar
et Welpton of Ogallala. Mrs. Will Far
rand of Koskia. Idaho, and Mrs. Silas

An almost fatal accident occiured at
the home of Forest Butler, four miles
west of Monroe, last Thursday afternoon,
Fred Kay of London, Eng., being the
victim. Ray, who has been m this
country a short time, was working for

a team hitched to a load of hay. Some
thing went wrong, and before any of
them could reach him the team tipped
the load of hay over, and when they
reached Kay he was lying unconscious
under the load, lie was given medical
treatment, but failed to regain consci
ousness, and Friday was brought to St.
Mary's hospital. For several days he
did not seem to make any improvement,
hut at present he is slowly regaining
consciousness and there is every pros
pect for his recovery. .Inst how the
accident happened, no one knows,
though it is probable that he lost con
trol of the team .

take charge of the department of physi
cal science iu the new Wayiie normal.

position.

eight dozen more towels 21 few days ago

for each day is about GO, while one day
Inst week there were fully 100 baths
taken.
Do not forget the Y. M. C. A. picnic

for some interesting features to be given
nt tho picnic ground.
The swimming classes which have
been organized at the Y. M. C. A. with
Harold Kramer as tutor are becoming
popular and are delivering the goods.

Colnmhu? should not learn to swim and
parents should appreciate this oppor
tunity. There is a class for men also
and arrangements can lie made by call
ing nt the Y. M. C. A- olllee any time.
It yon have never tried to swim, you can
Innrn to Hwim fairlv well in less than a
month and if you can swim already, yon
can learn more aliout it and become a
much better swimmer under able instruc
tion. The doubles of the tennis tournament
