We learn ol a large enterprise that ib talked of, viz, the settlement on farming land in this vicinity next spring of a thousand families from various parts of the eastern states. Three sharpers managed recently to ride from Omaha to Chicago on one ticket. They took seats at some dis tance from each other and established communication by means of a string run along the outside of the car, on which, after giving up his ticket, No. 1 eent his check to No. 2, and No. 2, after showing his check forwarded it to No. 3. The new bridge that is to span the Loup west of this place is manufactured by Kellogg Maurice of Athens, Pa. Mr. Clark Grant is foreman of the con struction gang, and tbe work will go forward as fast as the old bridge can be got out of the way. The U. P. company know the nature of the stream and will doubtless put up one of tho strongest bridges in the west. From all parts ot the state comes the good news that the inquiries for land are numerous, and that there will be an unprecedented inflow of immigrants next spring. Now let every man in the state make an extra effort to help settle up our vacant lands. We will all be be nefitted by it, iuclnding ihose who come. Nearer neighbors, more schools and more churches, better roads, more business ot all kinds, more enjoyment and more animation. There is 'room and work and prosperity for thousands of families. Help them to come west "and itrow up with the country," and this you can best do by disseminating f&cta among your acquaintances and friends. Advertised Letters.

KAVANAUGH Friday night's; meeting ot ths stock holders of the Columbus Baas Ball Club left no doubt about what would be done daring the season of 1911 . Besides the fifty stockholders, there was an enthusi astic crowd of fans in attendance. The election of a board of directors was ths principal business ot the masting, and when this was being disposed of ths question of reducing the number ot dir ectors was brought up. and resulted in but five being elected, ss follows: C. E. Pollock, Walter Lucre, H. A. Fritz, Chaa. Segslke. jr..' and Sam Gasa, jr. With the smaller board of directors the business can be transacted to much bat ter advantage, as there will be lass trou ble and the smaller number can be got ten together much easier. One of the instructions of the masting was that the board Lire manager Corbett for the com ing season; and this was complied with at once. Officers ot ths club will be se lected from the board ot directors, and this will be done at their mstting Satur-' day evening of this wssk. 8o far tbe only one mentioned for president is O. E. Pollock, and as he is a director ot the state league, his election to the head ot the local dab would place him in a better position to look after the interests of the club. The directors have appointed a soliciting committee to secure funds, and they will begin their work soon, so toe dab will be in a position to make a good report at the first meeting ot the direotors of the state league. With manager Corbett at the head of the team there is no question but that Columbas will have first class ball all season, and the ettendance nuke the season a big ger success from a financial standpoint than last year. Chief Bert J. Galley, Lester Jenkinson, of the Pioneer Hook & Ladder Co., EmilKumprof Hoes Company No. 1, Louis Meier of Hose Company No. 2, and A. J. Mason of the Bissell Hose Company, are representing Columbus at the annual meeting of the Nebraska Volunteer Firemen's association, being held at Alliance this week. The boys left Monday afternoon over the Union Pacific, going to Grand Island, and from there to Alliance. They were accom panied by a number of delegates from other towns who were enroate to the convention. John Parker of this dty. but formerly of Albion, will be the next president of ths association, as he at present holds the position of vice presi dent, and is in 'ine for the higher office, that being the rale followed by the as-' socistion. This will give Columbus Jhe president, although he will be credited to Albion, Mr. Parker being a resident of that town when elected vice president. The convention will conclude Thursday and the boys expect to return Friday. Some of the delegates were asked as to Columbus1 prospects for entertaining tbe next meeting, and he said it was generally understood that this city was not making an effort to secure it. Last week the county board were ask ed by the Columbus Commercial club to assist with tbe proposed improvement of the road between the Platte and Loup rivers, south of the dty. Tbe committee from the club asked that the board pay one-half ot the cost of the road, whioh is estimated at $800, and request ed that such an amount, which has been collected as inheritance tax, be appro priated. This tax is to be used only for permanent road improvement, in count ies having less than 30,000 inhabitant on roads radiating from towns and dties in these counties. The law also provides that this money cannot be divided among the various townships and cannot be used except for permanent roads . Ths board took the matter under advisement and before adjournment laid it over until their meeting in March, when they will take definite action. The committee having charge ot the raising of funds are going ahead and complete their other ar rangements and hope to be able to have the necessary funds for the road when the time arrives for beginning the work.

I am conviaoed that the primary secret of lack of power of or ganized religioa is that a large perceat ot church members have never gone thro ugh to Jesus. They have gone en fares some church, dead dogma, for mulated creed, snd are epeadiag their time and finding their joy in dl manaer of worldly devises, they are long on so cial gatheringa and short on prayer, meet ing. Let us ss church members go through to Jesus, to the Christ touch, the Christ experience, the Christ forgive ness, the Christ sanctiflcation then we will have power ia saving men.
