Kilea of the Journal February 15, 1878.
The man who will steal lumber from a
public bridge must be a pretty mean
rascal, and yet there are several such in
Nebraska. A bridge plank gets broken
or loose and away it is "yanked." Per
haps, after all the intent is to make sure
that the supervisor will see the bridge.
For those who have to move west in
wagons we believe it is u good plan to
build u little, movable house on the wa
tfnn. We hit ve .seen such with "ledgea"
putting out over the wheels, and having
in it a door, windowx, stove, etc., and
looking oomfortable and cosy. When a
settlement is made on the claim, the
house can be need temporarily for oc
cupancy by the family, instead of camp
ing out, and when the peruiiuc.tr dwell
ing is erected run lie put to very good
use on the farm. There is nothing like
consulting health and economy in Httch
On last Sunday Mr. Able, who resides
west of the Loup river, hnd a very nar
row escape from drowning. After cross
ing to the east end of the bridge while
on bis way to church in Columbus, his
hat blew off into the river. He left his
team in the care of his daughter, while
lie advanced on the ice toward the open
channel to recover his hat, but the ice
gave way, precipitating Mr. Alite into
the water six feet deep, and would have
drowned had not a couple of Polanders,
who were also wending their way to
church, came to his relief and rescued
him from a watery grave, ilatless, wet
and fearfully chilled with cold, Mr. Able
soon arrived at David Anderson's bouse,
where he was furnished with dry cloth
ing and stimulants, but was so long de
layed that he failed to reach the Monas
tery for devotional services.

sistant chief wae confirmed by that body.
The library board presented tbe name of
Dr. N. Matzen to fill tbe vacancy caused
by the resignation of I. H. Britell, and
the council made the appointment.
The annual report of the chief of the
Fire Department, Bert J. Galley, was
read and placed on file. It told in de
tail what apparatus the department had
on hand, and what wae needed for the
coming year. . T. Barnum of De
troit. Mich., presented a bill for $187 for
the new cells at the city jail, and the
committee reported the work completed
and satisfactory, and the bill waa allow
ed. R. O. Boyd and A. L. Bollin were
served with notices to remove obstruc
tions from the streets, the former having
a barn projecting into Monroe street,
and the latter fences across Lincoln
street. The committee on fire, to whom
the petitions for tbe purchase of a $5,000
chemical auto truck was referred, re
ported that CM) names were attached to
the petition, andthat being; a majority
of the voters of the city of Columbus,
the proposition was carried. The coun
cil then adopted tbe report and passed a
resolution looking toward tbe purchase
of the track, which will be done as soon
as the report of the judiciary committee
to whom it was referred, reports, which
will be at the next meeting. Tbe coun
cil are taking their time in tbe matter,
and want to be sun- of their ground, so
that there will be no question regarding
tbe legality of tbe proceeding.
About twenty residents of Columbus
and Columbus township, interested
in the petition and remonstrance, were
before the board regarding the divid
ing of district No. 1. The petitions for
division contained forty-eight names,
thirty-four from the township and four
teen from tbe city, and remonstrance
contained 638 names, all from tbe city.
Several who signed the petition spoke in
itsfavor, and Judge Poet, who represent
ed the petitioners, also spoke in favor of
it. Several talks were made by mem
bers of the board, and after both sides
had been heard action was deferred on
both the petition and remonstrance.
Miss Sheehan, primary teacher in the
High school building, presented her re
signation, to take effect at once, as she
has apoflition in the.Liccole city schools.
The resignation was accepted, and pend
ing the election of her successor Miss
Clara Weaver is acting as a temporary
substitute. Superintendent Campbell
was granted a leave of absence to at
tend the National meetings of school
superintendents, which is held at Mobile,
Ala., February 22, 23, 24, 25 and 26. At
this meeting tbe board elected Superin
tendent Campbell for a term of three
years, tbe salary for the first two being
$1,650 per year, and for the third year
$1,700. Spring vacation this year will
begin March 111 and continue for one
week, until April 10. Chancellor Avery
of the state university has been invited
to deliver an address at tbe annual com
mencement to be held on June 1, a mo
tion extending the invitation having
been passed by the board.

Beginning with Saturday of last
week. No's. 7 and 8. the Los Angeles
trains on the Union Pacific, were discon
tinued, owing to high water on tbe Salt
Lake road. These trains are solid Pall
man trains and do not carry local pas
sengers, so tbe change does not affect the
service in this city. No's. 1, 2. 3 and 10

until the service on the west and is re-esUblished.
Last Saturday the second annual
meeting of the Platte County Teacbera'
association waa held at Humphrey.
Teachers from all parts of the country

of tbe county beiag present. The pro
gram waa an excellent one, and the mae
io was furnished by the pupils of the
Humphrey schools. "Higher Educa
tion" was the first paper, and was by
Prof. Good of the Greatoa schools.
Prof. Good is a new man in tbe county
and hie first appearance before the as
sociation wss well received. "Work in
Spelling" by Lola Knight of Oreaton
brought many points regarding the pre
sent methods used. "School Boom Hy
giene,"' by Pearl Elley of Humphrey,
took up tbe new system of heating
school rooms, and also the proper ventila
tion, and also care of the eyes of the pu
pil, which has much to do with their
progress in school work. Tbe system of
medical examination was also dealt with,
and tbe feasibility of such examinations
in country schools discussed. "Reading
in tbe Lower Grades" by Alice Davies of
Creston. wsa one of the interesting pa
pars of the session. The last number
was "Temperance Work in tbe Schoole"
by Milton Tranche!, and when this wss
completed the arrival of tbe southbound
freight required an adjournment with
out transacting tbe regular business ses
sion. The next meeting, which will be
the last one until fall, will be held in this
city sometime in April.
Louis Henry Hoppe, brother-in-law of
Chas. Segelke of this city, disd Tuesday
at his home at Benton, aged sixty-nine
years, one month and twenty-four daya.
Mr. Hoppe was born in Hildershetm,
Hanover, Germany, and resided in his
native country until he grew to man
hood. While in hie native land he waa
a soldier in the German army, and fou
ght in the German-Austrian war of 1866
and also the Franco-German war of 1870-
71 . On April 7, 18TC, he was married to
Doretta begelke, at Dowerden, Hanover,
Germany, and the same year with his
wife came to America and located .in
Omaha. Here they resided but a abort
time, moving to Holt county the next
year. This wss their home for nine
years, and they then moved to Platte
county, and three years later they took
up their residence in Colfax county,
which has since been their home. Mr.
Hoppe was one of tbe prominent resi
dents of tbe western part of Colfax coun
ty, and since leaving tbe fararasided in

ring, and two sons, Fred and Henry at
home. Funeral eervioes will be held
Thursday at ISO from the home, and
burial will be in the Kenton cemetery.
Improved mail service for this locality
will soon be a reality should tbe change
forecasted by the Union Pacific offioials
be put into effect. Tbe proposed change
would make the Grand Island local, No.
23 leave Omaha at 11:30 p. m., the form
er time of No. :(. This would bring
the morning dailies here at tbe usual
time, and also gave the branches the
same service. People from Fremont
and intermediate towns could attend the
theatre in Omaha and return home the
same night. No. 5, at present a fast
train, would do tbe local work between
Omaha and Grand Island. This arrange
ment would be temporary, for as soon aa
the Denver business picks up. No's. 13
and 14 would again be placed in service.
When the new Union Pacific depot
was built a pipe was laid under the
tracks so tbe telegraph wires would be
underground. But when tbe cable ar
rived it was found to be too large for the
pipe and was sent hack. Severs! cables
were sent out here, but esch proved too
large until the one received last week,
and this wss placed in tbe pipe, and the
work of connecting it up with the
switchboard has been in progress during
tbe last week. When the present over
heat! cable is removed, it will improve the
appearance of the front of the depot.
Peter Ernst filed a complaint in Jus
tice O'Brien's court charging' J. E.

I sometimes thiak that as the maa who
ie aotaehriatiaa looks into the chureh
he must feel we are mskiag a great ads
about nothing. Unless there is a greater
need of a personal application of the
gospel to individual life than ia generally
accepted, evea by ohristisa people, the
preacher ie several kiadaof afoel. We
have reached aa ace whea it w consid
ered a virtue to be at peace ia Zioa.
When men will mt for twaaty years ia a
church pew aader several pastorates
without showiag the least sign of a
change of life aad the demand ia not to
dieturb them in their indifferent woi
snip. Without reference aa to what we be
lieve today aa tbe need of Jesus in tbe
soul there waa a time when the church
believed that one without Chriet i
lost, and under the spell of that belief
men became tremendous preachers.
Under tbe spell of tbst belief Jesus
wept over the city and said "ye would
not come noto me that you might have
life." Peter preached tbe sermon on
Pentecost and Paul cried, "Lay bold oa
eternal life." According to New Testa
ment teaching letting a man drown that
we might save is nothing in comparison
to letting a man go to hell we might
save for heaven.
The gosple of Jesus is not simply
another power of evolution: not simply
another power working for social cul
ture: not simply another religion; it ie
man's only hope of immortality.
The ohurch throws open its doors of a
Sunday not as another plaee'of eater
tainment but a place where the gospel,
the power of God and the will of God,
ia preached to bring aalvation to dyiag
