Manager Corbett says that he is one of
the fastest men pluyiug either short or

expects exceptionally good work from

After an illness of two months, Mrs.
Ellen F. Gerrard, wife of C. L. Gerrard,
died last Saturday at the family home at
1820 North street, aged forty years.
Mrs. Gerrard who was the daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Lynch, pioneer
settlers on the Shell Creek valley, was
born on the old homestead, northwest of
this city, December JG, 1870. Here she
grew to womanhood and after completing
her studies in the public sohools, began
teaching. She followed this calling suc
cessfully at Platte Center, David City,
and also in the Columbus city schools.
She was married to Clarence L. Gerrard
in Omaha November 27, 190S, and
since that time they have made their
home in this city. After the birth of
her second child, a little daughter, on
December ol, 1'JIO, her health has been
poor, and she did not regain her strong
tb. She is survived by her husband and
one son, Thomas Leander, and three
brothers and three sisters, Dan Lynch
of Af ten, Wyo., James Lynch of Payette,
Idaho, Thos. Lynch of Platte Center,
Mrs. Morse, of Brooklyn, N. Y., and
Mary and Margaret Lynch of Platte
Center. Shu was taken to the home of
her brother Thomas in Platte Center

were held Wednesday morning at St.
Joseph's church, Platte Center, and
burial was in the family lot in St.
Andrew's cemetery, east of Platte Center.
During the last week the stone col
umns, which had been put into place at
the new post office building, were taken
down. When these were put in place
they were a trifle out of line, and atten
tion was called to it by Inspector Dir
nam, but the superintendent did not
make the change, and it was finally re
ferred to the treasury department, who
notified the main contractors that unless
the plans und specifications were follow
ed, the building would not be accepted.
This change,' with other delays, will
probably make it impossible for the
contractors to complete the building in
the time specified iu the contract.
Wednesday of this week the board of
supervisors began a short session for the
transactiou of routine business. Ono of

Among the bill now before the legisla

tbat would directly affect districts situa
ted like the one which includes Colum
bus. They were introduced by Senator
Albert and Representative Reagan of thie
county, and provide for the division of
the districts. In view of this the hoard
of education of this city have taken an
active interest in them and will direct
their efforts toward seeing that such bill
does not become laws.
For some time the church has been
under criticism us being out of harmony
with society. I am frauk to admit that
I believe there is some truth in the crit
icism. The church has narrowed its
inlluence until its only standing ground
is the souls of men. To the christian
this is a tremendously broad standing
place. However, to thu thousands un
touched by christian sentiment it seems
tremendously small. There are men
who sit in the church pews, who can
draw a check any hour of the year to
cover the expense of every desire who
grow out of sympathy with the Icsb for
tunate and are inclined to blame the
man who continually looks want in the
face. There are dear christian grand
mothers who can discount the preacher
in christian graces who look rather
askance at the frolic of youth. It is to
be regretted that the church is ever
under thu criticism as out of sympathy
with a single member of society in the
legitimate straggle of life.
The pastor of the Congregational
church will discuss this problem in a
series of Sunday evening sermons from
the subject: The Man God Created and
His Development. The sub-topics will
1. Man and His Physical Wants.
2. Man und His Desire for Recreation,
o. Man and His Intellectual Longing.
4. Man and Spiritual Aspirations.
5. .Jan and His Immortal Hope.
0. Man und His Hereafter.
The series will begin next Sunday
night. Wu believe you cannot afford to
miss this series. Next Sabbath morn

American Sentiment. Wc will be glad
to welcome you.

that the association is not n building,
not a gymnasium, not a social club but

the cause of spreading the Kingdom of

that the association is not losing its
