Perhaps Nebraska never before raised
so good h crop of small grain. Doubtless
she never raised so much. The amount
for bale will simply be immense.
iMany farmers are preparing to put up
an abuudance of hu and are going at

for the time and labor.

During the lost few montuB two of the
sewer companies of this city have been
threatened with serious trouble with the
outlet of their sewers, where they empty
into the river. When these sewers were
first constructed the channel of the river
was near the north bank and afforded
ample water to carry away whatever the
sewer emptied, but of late the channel
has been moving toward the south side
until nil the water available for the two
companies is the stream from what is
known as the Black ice house pond.
This would be sufficient were it not for
the fact that people have been using the
river at and above the sewer outlets for
a dumping ground, and this has, besides
stopping what stream there was, pushed
the river channel further south. The
stoppage became so serious that the
companies interested took the matter up,
and are now opening the channel so that
a stream of water can run from the pond
to the river to provide an outlet for the
sewers. While the sewer people have
been looking after their properties, and
employed a watchman, that has been of
no avail and the dumping practice still
continues. In order to further prevent
a repetition of the present condition re
garding the dumping, those interested
in the sewer companies appeared before
the council last Friday night and asked
that all streets near the sewer outlet be
closed at the river to prevent people
from driving there with refuse, and the
council appointed a committee to in
vestigate the matter. The very slight
fall of all the sewers makes it imperative
that there shall he no obstruction at the
outlet, as it takes very little in this line
to make serious trouble.
As a result of inflrmities, due to old
age. James Davis passed away Sunday
evening at the home of his daughter,
Mrs. O. C. Shannon, at Sixth and Gra
ver etreets. Mr. Davis, who had been in
poor health for some time, has been
gradually growing weaker since the
death of his wife in May. James Davis
was born near Oswego, N. Y., Jane 20,
132.1. Here he grew to manhood and in
1850 married Miss Hannah Alston, who
died in May this year. After leaving
his native state Mr. Davis located in
Wisconsin in 1864, and made that state
his home until 1873, when with his fam
ily became to Platte county and took up
a homestead in Sherman township. He
continued to reside there until 1903,
when he and bis wife moved to this
city. Some time ago Mr. Davis eyesight
failed, and for a time was helpless.
Three children survive him, Fred E.
Davis of Creston and George Davis and
Mrs. O. C. Shannon of thiB oily. Funer
al services were held at the home of his
daughter Tuesday afternoon, being con
ducted by Rev. W. L. Dibble of the
Congregational church, and he was laid
to rast beside his wife in the Columbus
cemetery. Among those from out of
town who attended the funeral were Mr.
and Mrs. Fred . Davis and Walter
Davis of Creston, Clarence Devinney
and Mrs. Esther Heck and Mrs. Ida
Cutis of Palmer. Nebraska.
Sunduy was Eagles day in Columbus
or rather at Stevens' grove, two and one
half miles west of the city. Besides the
members of the local aerie, many Eagles
from out in the state, besides a large
number of local visitors, were in attend
ance at the state picnic. The weather
was all that could be desired and the
program of entertainment provided
consisted of a tug of war between
North Bend and Columbus, base ball
game between Fremont and Columbus,
and the shoot between Grand Island and
Columbus. All these contests were won
by the Columbus teams, they carrying
off the trophies otTered. The ball game,
which was quite interesting, was won by
the locals, the score being '! to 1 lie
sides the contests the bowling alley
furnished amusement for many and in
the afternoon and evening the large
dancing platform was well tilled, the
music being furnished by the Eagles or
chestra of this city. So well arranged
was the picnic that not a single incident
marred the enjoyment of the day, altho
ugh there were many visitors in the city,
a special having been run from Spalding
for the ball game and picnic.
Sometime ago the statement was made
that should Columbus build sufficient
additional sidewalk, an additional city
carrier would be granted by Uncle Sam
Those interested in free city delivery
have taken hold of this matter, judging
from the amount of new walks built, and
now that this has been done, a new map
of the city showing these improvements,
has been made, and will be forwarded to
Washington for action by the depart
ment. There is every prospect of favor
able action on this request, and the
new carrier will be substitute carrier
Jackson, who is first in line for promo
tion. When the new change is made,
all the present routes will be changed
slightly in order to make room for the
new route.
One of the shortest meetings of the
city council, for the tiret meeting in the
month, was that of last Friday evening.
Outside of the routine business and al
lowing bills, the council accepted the
report of City Attorney Louis Lightner,
who had disposed of the Platte river
bridge bonds. The transaction netted
the city S2T1,000. the remainder of the
amount being required as a bonus for
the purchase of the bonds. The ordin
ance providing for prospective builders
I taking out a building permit was before
the council for its second reading.

tion of the building and last week the

northeast corner of the building and
will move its offices there.
Tuesday of this week parties from
Monroe Gled a complaint in Police Judge
O'Brien's court, charging Wesley Mc-
Neeley of that village with disorderly
conduct. It seems that Sunday evening
McNeeley, accompanied by a younger
boy, followed two girls home from church
and when the girls declined the com
pany of the boys, they were insulted and
had their clothes torn by the boys. It
seems as though this is not the first of
fense for McNeeley, and as he does
not bear a very good reputation, no
doubt there will be something done at
the hearing Wednesday afternoon. The
police judge issued a warrant, which was
placed in the hands of Sheriff Lacbnit.
On The Diamond.
Columbus still continues to play good
ball and is climbing toward the top of
the percentage column. But there
seems to be' one team that Columhu
cannot win from, and that is Grand Is
land. Last Wednesday and Thursday's
games were with that club, and the vis
itors took both of them.
But when it comes to the leaders, the
Fremont team, Columbus wins almost
every time. Thursday and Friday of
last week at Fremont that team lost
three straight games to Colnmbns, the
second day, Fiiday, being a double head
er. When the boys arrived home that
evening, enroute to Seward, they were
met at the depot by tbeCity Band and a
large crowd of people and given a rous
ing welcome. This incident no doubt
made the boys feel good and it also
shows that Columbus, whioh is consid
ered one of the best ball towns in the
state league, appreciate good playing by
the team.
Saturday Columbus played a double
header at Seward, breaking even by
wining one and losing one. and Sunday
the transferred game with Seward was
played in this city. The Seward team
played good ball until their pitcher,
weakened, allowing eight runs in one in
ning, and then they become discouraged.
A large crowd from the branches, and
those who were attending the Eagle pic
nic, attended the game, which was called
at 1:30.
Monday Columbus played at Grand
Island, and again lost to the Islanders,
being shut out while the other team
scored seven times.
Columbus defeated Grand Island on
their grounds in Tuesday's game, the
score being 4 to 1 in favor of Columbus.
Kissel), who pitched for Columbus, evi
dently broke the hoodoo, as this is the
first time Columbus has been able to
win from Grand Island on their home
diamond.
Wednesday and Thursday Columbn
plays at lied Cloud, where Joe Dolan is
now managing that team.
With the present game that Columbus
is putting up, they ought to have no
trouble in keeping up their winning
streak, and they now are in third place
with every prospect of going higher.

Charlie Dickey, Henry Uockenberger,
Superintendent Lecron and A. L Koon
crossed bats along with their sons and
daughters. The Noah's Ark Camp pre
pared supper for the Band which ar
rived on the grounds about 7 o'clock and
many thought the band concert which
followed was the best our band has ever

music resounded freely through the trees
and clear atmosphere of the country.
Some returned early in the evening while
others enjoyed the whole evening at the
grove.
