E. B. Feaster returned this morn
ing from Chicago, Detroit and Lans
ing, Michigan, where he had been vis
iting some of the big automobile fac
tories. E. N. Waide returned home Friday
from Cheyenne county, Kansas, where
he had been harvesting his wheat
crop. He reports that he had a very
fair yield of wheat, and that he will
make a fair return on the money invested.
Roy Chittick, the popular center
fielder of the Columbus team last sea
son, arrived in the city Monday morn
ing to resume his old place on the
team. He has not been playing ball
this season, but his return to the lea
gue and the old team will be hailed
with delight by Columbus people. He
will play his initial game this after
noon against Grand Island.
Next Saturday evening is the time
and Platte Center is the place where
the Platte county automobile associa
tion will hold its next meeting. At
that time it is expected to perfect a
permanent organization. President
Feaster, who has just returned from
the east, is now more enthusiastic
than ever, and everyone who is inter
ested in the subject will do well to
turn out to the meeting Saturday
Fifteen years ago the 3d day of
July of group of young men of the
Duncan neighborhood got together and
organized what afterwards became
famous as the Swiss band. Of late
years this band has not been very ac
tive, but once each year all the mem
bers get together and have a grand
reunion. This year the reunion was
held at the home of E. J. Ernst, the
occasion being last Sunday, and every
member of the original band was pre
sent. There are few things that give
a person more real pleasure than to
meet with the associates of bygone
times and talk over the things that
have happened in the long ago, and
the Swiss band is no exception. All
reports indicate that they enjoyed the
reunion to the fullest extent.
The Columbus team has not been
stirring things to a very great pitch
of excitement the past week. Two
days, Sunday and Tuesday, no games
were played by them on account of
rain. Monday a double-header was
played at Kearney, of which we lost
both ends the first one by a score of
two to one. and the second by five to
two. The latest change in the per
sonnel of the team is the release of
Weisenberger and the substitution of
Roy Chittick to his old place in cen
ter field. This move meets with the
hearty approval of practically all the
fans in the city.
Columbus is now at home for a ser
ies of twelve games, three games each
with Grand Island, Kearney, Hastings
In the precentage column Columbus
still holds the second place from the
bottom, with York forming a comfort
able cushion underneath.

The new automobile chemical and
hose wagon which was purchased by
the city for the use of the fire depart
ment last spring is somewhere on the
road between here and Columbus,
Ohio, Chief Galley having received
the bill of lading stating that it had
been shipped from there last Tuesday
by way of St. Louis and Omaha.
During the past week the fire com
mittee of the city council has gone to
each of the several automobile houses
in the city to solicit bids for the
housing, running and caring for the
machine, the contract finally being let
to Max Gottberg, whose bid was five
dollars a month for storage, seventy
five cents an hour or fraction there of
for running, and one dollar for clean
ing the machine each time. The
chief has detailed two men from each
of the four fire companies in the city
to act as a chemical company, but a
separate company will not be organiz
ed at the present time. The new ap
paratus is equipped to carry one
thousand feet of fire service hose, and
the hose from the cart of Hose Com
pany No. 1 will probably be used for
this purj)ose. There is also consider
able talk of redistricting the city into
seven fire distrticts, instead of the
present four districts, and the fire
committee of the council and the offi
cers of the department have been
working on a feasible plan of making
the new districts. Then the plan will
probably be presented to the council
at an early meeting for ratification.

The principal of construction in the Underwood was
found first in the Underwood, and every typewriter seeking
business in the same field with the Underwood which
has been put on the market since the advent of the Under
wood, has been an imitation of, and in general appearance
like, the Underwood.
The last "Blind" advocates of importance have now
fallen into line, and there is not to-day a single "blind
writing" typewriter actively on this market. Recall all
the arguments you have heard in past years by Underwood
opposition, and you will realize what an advance agent of
progress the Underwood has been; then bear in mind that
the Underwood was the first fully "visible," has had tim
to develope and improve, and is to-day the most perfect

A newspaper is like a man be
cause generally it reflects some man,
and as a man, it should be judged on
the whole. No man lives a perfect
life; no editor prints a perfect paper.
If an editor is honest he is bound to
offend some one everyday of his life.
If he doesn't offend some one he is
nambypamby and flabby. The same
is true of the average man. A news
paper is bound to make mistakes.
In getting news it must necessarily
take hearsay. But if in the long run,
week after week, and year after year,
a paper stands for decency, for honest
thinking and clean living, if it speaks
fair for those who are trying to do
good and condemns sneaks and cheats,
then it isa good paper.
The Best Road Material.
One of the best posted road experts
in the grain belt when asked as to
the best building material for roads
made the rather unexpected reply:
"Enthusiasm." Being pressed for
an explanation he declared that even
where the best materials lie close at
hand and where the cost of building
and maintaining roads is small, it is
impossible to get anything done un
til the people become enthusiastic
over the question of good roads.
More progress has been made in
road building in such states as Iowa,
Missouri and Illinois in the past two
or three years than in the ten years
preceding. Not because new road
building materials have been discov
ered or because the cost of road
building has lessened, but because the
enthusiasm of the people has at last
been aroused. Next to enthusiasm
the important question is that of local
materials. Mr. T. H. McDonald,
of the Iowa State Highway Com
mission, is authority for the state
ment that in his state fully 50 per
cent of the public highway could be
put in splendid condition with local
materials, by which he means materials
within easy hauling distance. There
is an all too too general impression
that to secure a good, permanent high
way it is necessary to send some dis
tance and secure material which can
not be had locally. Mr. McDonald,
from long experience, is convinced
that the road problem is much sim
pler than many people are inclined to
think. If the people of the different
states will simply utilize the road
building material which lies near at
hand the situation could be improved
immensely and at a much smaller cost
than is generally supposed.
Illinois is doing considerable to
solve the road building problem and
at the same time the problem of keep
ing its convicts employed at non-competitive
work. Under proper restric
tions the state will furnish free crush
ed rock to any township which will
use it for road building. The rock is
quarried and crushed by the convicts
confined iu the state penitentiaries.
In performing this labor the prisoners
do not enter into competition with the
free workingman, but at the same
time they aid the state in securing a
system of permanent highways which
must inevitably increase the agricult
ural profits and lessen the disadvanta
ges and discomforts of farm life in the
In every case and in every state.
however, the situation resolves itself
back to the condition which the expert
above quoted had in mind when he de
clared that enthusiasm is the chief
building material. Before anything
can be done the people must be awak
ened. After that comes the question
of material and of supervision, but en
thusiasm is the foundation in every in
stance. The Iowa Homestead.
