Orson. Douglas Butler, formerly living
north of this city, bat later a resident of
Lincoln, died last Thursday evening at
the home of his son Al, after an illness
of ten days. Mr. Butler was born in
Bennington, Vermont, September 12,
1839. When the civil war broke out he
was a resident of Illinois and in Decem
ber, 18G1, enlisted as n volunteer in Com
pany D, Fifty-first Illinois infantry, ser
ving three and one-half years, one year
and a half of which was a re-enlistment.
He served first as a private, and then
was promoted successively to a corporal,
scargeant and second lieutenant, and
for one year was in command of two dif
ferent companies on account of leave of
absence and disability of officers. He
waB taken prisoner at Nasville, Tenn.,
November 10. 18(51, and confined in the
Andersonville, Ga.f prison for seven
months. On March 10, 18G1. he was
married to Margaret Louise Taylor at
Metamoras, 111., who still survives him.
Mr. Butler moved to Columbus and
Platte county with his family in 1882,
and settled on a farm four miles north
of the city, where, he lived for seventeen
years, moving to Lincoln in 1!M)8. Ue
was on a visriL to his sons, Al, Ed and
Forest, when taken with his last illness.
Besides the widow, he leaves four sons,
Walter W. Butler of Lincoln, Alvin and
l'.d ward Butler of Columbus, Forest of
Monroe and Mrs. George Mentzeu and
Mrs. Elon Nelson of Lincoln. Funeral
services weic held Saturday from the
home of his sou Al, being conducted by
I lev. C W. It-iy, pastor ot the Methodist
church, and burial was in the Columbus
Monday evening of this week the board
of education reorganized for the year ot
1911 and the new members, C. L Pick
e, who succeeds G. A. Scott, and L A.
Lachnit, who succeeds L. II. Leavy
taking up their duties. After electing
W. A. McAllister, president: L. F. Phil-lippj-.
ice president nnd K. II. Nan
niuiiii. n rret-iry, the board took up the
matter of the bids for the remodelling of
the High school building, which had
heen taken up by the old boatd last
Saturday night, but referred to the new
board for action. As the bids were
much higher than the board anticipated,
they finally rejected all of them, and for
the present the building of additional
room will not be taken up. Geo. W.
Thomas of Menominee, Wis., was elected
manual training teacher, and Hoy Good
rich of Seward selected foe the position 1
of science teachers. The standing com
mittees for the coming year have not
been announced by the president, but
in event of a special meeting in a few
days the assignment will he made.
A change in the present service by the
city letter carriers was up lor considera
tion at a i eccnt meeting of the Columbus
l.eti.ilers' association. Since the city
delivery was established practically one
carrier has been serving the business dis
trict, while at first there were two and
later three for the residence portion.
The nv-nlt of the present arrangement is
that a portion of the business district is
served between ten and eleven o'clock in
the morning nnd between three and four
o'clock in the -afternoon. The arrange
ment suggested by the Association is for
the carriers to each take a portion ot the
business district and also a portion of
the residence district, so that the former
will gel a much prompter delivery. It
1? thought that the route could be re ar
ranged to meet this requirement and the
Association aud also the Commercial
club will probably request Postmaster
McAlhuter to take the change up with
the post ollice department.
Brginuutg with May 1 the local post
otlicu will weigh, count and classify all
the mail passing through the office.
This means that every piece of mail
handled by the city and rural carriers
will be counted and weighed by them
and separate reports made out by them.
The clerks in the ollice will also hc.ro-
iiiied to count and weigh nil incoming
I and outgoing mail, tn that when the
uork is completed on June 1, they will
be able to tell exactly what has been
il.me. and how much time has been re
ijnireil to perform it. This order for
weighing, which was issued by the de
partment, applies to all offices, and the
statistics thus obtained will he used by
the commiiUo that has been appointed
to investigate the workings- of the pos
tal be i vice.

Columbus base ball fans are preparing
to give the home team a good start
when the season opens on May 1'2. This
was decided on nt a meeting of the direc
tors Inst Saturday evening, and has re
ceived the hearty support of the fans.
It is proposed to have tbo business houses
closed so that they and their employes
may attend the game. The City Band
will furnish music am: the manage
ment anticipates a record breaking at
tendance for the opening game. An
other meeting of the directors will be
helil to complete plans for thisjevent.
As jet this season the fans have not
had an opportunity to witness nny ex
hibition games, the one scheduled Sun
day between the Omaha Shamrocks and
the home tenm being postponed on ac
count of rain Manager Corbctt bus se
cured this team for two later dates, how
ever, and they will play here Saturday
and Sunday, May G and 7.
So far there have been no selections
of who will play with the team this year,
as the tryout has not progressed far
enough for Manager Corbett to begin to
make his selections.
Later arrangements for the oponingof
tho state league in this city include a
concert in the park by the City Band,
followed by au automobile parade to the
grouudc. And for this parade the man
agement extend an invitation to all uuto
owners to be present nnd take part in it.
TickctB for the opening game will be on

a granu stand admission. This price for
tickets for the opening day was suggest
ed by many who did not feel like taking
slock, but were willing to purchase two
or three tickets in order to give the club
a good start off. A committee of bnsi
iii sm men has secured the signatures of a
iiiiij jrity of the business houses signify
ing their intention of closing from 3 to 5
