A great many inquiries have recently
been made by parties who desire to pur
chase lands on the Pawnee reservation,
when the sale will take place, and in
what way it will be eo'.d. We are in
possession of very little reliable informa
tion upon the subject. It appears that
the Secretary of the Interior has the
control of the matter nnd is authorized
to advertise and cause these lands to be
sold at earns not lesB thnn the appraised
value in any crbbT We do not fnrtber
know the terms of the sale, whether
for cash in hand or on deferred pay
ments. We are not advised whether
the sale will be conducted at public
auction or private bids at the appraised
valoe. Just now n large number of
persona are seeking homes in Nebraska,
and are muking anxious inquiry about
the reservation lands.
The fire northeast of town Monday
night was a fearful looking night until
the rain Bet in and quieted it down.
The wind was high and the Jinnies
pushed their way rapidly. At the foot
of the bluffs, east of J. II. Keed'a it de
stroyed two small stacks of hay for Pat
Griffin, and sweeping westward it took
in one small stack and three large ones
(in all, probably one hundred and fifty
tonBofhay). belonging to Mr. Reed.
These last had been plowed around, a
double line of fire guards, and those at
them watching and Ghting the Ore were
congratulating themselves on having
saved them, when nil at once, and as
quick as a man could turn his hand, the
wind veered to the west and whirling
the Haines backward climbed the stacks
and consumed them. We learn that the
same tire burned seven stacks for Mr.
8tenger and about four tons in cock
for Mr. Reagan, four stacks for Mr.
Crites, and Dan Sbedee lost a lot of
corn, and it was only by the hardest
work that his house and wheat stacks

Last Thursday there was a shooting
affray foutbwest of Platte Center that
might have ended fatally. The affair
occured on the Mylet farm and the
participants were J. W . Mylet and John
Dalton. During the forenoon there had
been a dispute over the division of the
farm products, the Dal tons being rent
ers on the Mylet farm. According to
the version given the Journal, the My
Iete, J. W. and his father, went to the
place to make arrangements regarding
the division of the crops and the first
trouble started over some potatoes.
This was for the time apparently settled
but later there waB a dispute over the
millet, which led to the shooting. This
they could not agree on and the youn
ger Dalton struck Mylet in the face,
when he shot the aggressor in the ohin
with a 22 calibre revolver. Dalton kept
on coming at Mylet, when he received a
second bullet, this taking effect in the
side, but striking a rib and glancing.
After the shooting Mylet came to Platte
Center and gave himself up and later
was taken to Columbus by Deputy
Sheriff Burke. The wounded man was
brought to the hospital in this city, but
it is understood that since he has been
able to return home. So far no com
plaint has been filed againBt Mylet, and
at present it looks as though none would
be, as the wounded, man will be all right
in a few days.
Henry Inman, father of Emmett In
mnn of this city, died at the hospital
Friday morning, aged 05 years. Mr.
Inman was born in Peru, 111., Novem
ber 2, 1845, and in 18C8, he moved to
Council Bluffs, la. In 1879 he located
in Omaha and for twenty years was an
employe of the Willow Springs distillery.
Later he was employed by the school
board, nntil poor health prevented him
from continuing his work. Mr. Inman
came to thia city with his son, who is
conductor on the Spalding freight, and
made his home with him, except for the
two months he was at Portland. Ore.,
and other points in the west for bis
health, having been sick with stomuch
trouble, which caused his death. Since
his return from the west his condition,
instead of improving, became worse,
and he was taken to the hospital for
treatment. Seven children, five sons
and two danghters, survive him, Wm.
Inman of SL Louie, Emmett Inman of
Columbus, Uny Inman of Emerson, Neb.,
Frank Inman of Lusk, Wyo., Walter
Inman of Omnba, Mrs. J. J. Nelson of
Omaha and Mabel Inman of Emerson.
Funeral services were held Saturday
from the home of Emmett Inman,
Seventeenth and Speice streets, and
were conducted by Rev. Ray of the
Methodist church, nnd burial was in the
Monday evening the school board de
cided to equip the high school building
with a safety fire escape, of the same
pattern as the one demonstrated at the
Second ward building a short time ago.
The other buildings will be provided
with these escapes later. This year the
teachers arc only asking for n leave of
one day with pay so they can attend the
stale teachers1 meeting. In former
years this meeting has been held in Oc
tober and the teachers given a two days
leave with pay, but the date this year
has been changed to Thanksgiving week,
and as there is no school on Thursday
and Friday of that week, the additional
day will give them three days to attend
the meeting. Hereafter the high school
tnition for non-resident pupils will be $3
per month, the same as is paid by the
district under the high nchool law.
Formerly it was S2 per month and the
scholar whose tnition was not paid by
the district received it for less than other
wise. Miss Clara Reeder was elected
instructor of the physical science de
partment. Elmer Guiles, living in the Okay
neighborhood, northwest of Monroe,
met with an accident last Thursday
morning that resulted in his death a few
hours later. He was working with a
threshing crew and just as they were
coming to the Guiles home place he was
riding on the tongue of the separator.
A sudden jolt threw him to the ground
and be fell in front of the machine, and
before it could be stopped ran partially
over him, breaking his collar hune, and
crushing him bo he died in the after
noon. At first his injuries were not
considered fatal, but it later developed
that he bad been injured internally.
Mr. Guiles, who was about forty-five
years of age bad lived with his parents
on the old home place for the last thirty
years, and was unmarried. Funeral
services were held Saturday at the Okay
chnrch and burial was in the New Hope
John Kyle, from Loup township, was
in the city Tuesday, and in speaking of
the conditions during the last season
said something occurred this year that
bad not before in his forty years' resi
dence in Platte county the west side
of the old Barnum pasture became so
dry this summer that it was impossible
for cattle to find grass and they were
compelled to eat the green leaves of the
trees. Located as this pasture is, be
tween the two rivers, and the distance
to water being very little, it is surpris
ing that these conditions existed.
Miss Minnie Glur of the Journal force
returned home Sunday evening after a
month's holiday spent with relatives in
Omaha and at other points in the eastern

Frank Davis ot Oklahoma Oity was in
the city a few days last week visiting
relatives and shaking hands with old

years since Frank left Nebraska, and
during that time has wandered over most
of the United States and Canada. In
all his travels he tells us thst he has
saw nothing that looked better to him
than Nebraska does at present, and that
Columbus has improved more than any
small city he knew of.
A meeting ot the Commercial club has
been called for this (Wednesday) even

moters to make this a big event for
Columbus, and also a welcome to those
on the south side ot the river who have
been compelled to go elsewhere since
early in the spring. A definite program
will be decided on at the meeting and it
is quite probable that the day will be
one of the events of the year in this city.

We sometimes hear men say. "I am as
good as the church member.' The pro
position reels on what goodness is. If
goodness ia negative; if it is simply
keeping ones self oleitn, pure, we might
grant the claim. Christ's view-point of
goodness is serrice. The best helper is
the beet man. Patriotism bares its
arms in country's cause; philanthropy
seeks the needs; knowledge finds its ex
pression in serviceable activity and
Christ tells us that goodness is not
wrapping ones talent in a napkin and
keeping it clean and secure, but invest
ing it in noble service. The church
offers the largest opportunity for service
of any organization today. Its Gj!d is
unliantcd. Its opportunity outstrips its
capacity because so large a per cent of
men shrink from under the obligation
and leave the burden on the few. We
must contend that the active worker in
the church is a belter man than the
