since graduating from the Chicago
Art Institute at Chicago. Miss Kusche
was tin- youngest of her class, which

Columbus has certainly been uu
against the real thing in baseball cir
cles the p:it week. A fellow by the
name of liockuvitz was sent here to
do the work of an umpire, but who
ever made the blunder-well he may
have Mime excuse but it is not clear
what that ecuse may be. Columbus
fan have at times, like all other fans,
roasted the umpire at times during
the progress of the game, but last Sun
day was the first time that we can re
member when that figurehead became
so outrageously wrong that the mob
spirit got the upper hand in the crowd.
It was a matter to be regretted that
the boys carried the thing as far as
they did. and indeed it might have
gone even further but for the cool
headedness of Manager Kissell and a
few of the real sports present. To
the credit of the players, be it said
that they took no part in the demon
stration, neither did they make excep
tion to the rank injustice of some of
the decissions they were compelled to
abide by. Yet in spite of the fact
that they were compelled to play ten
men at times the team has won sever

Joseph F. Meyer, died early this
(Thursday) morning at the home of his
father Theodore Meyer, in the east
part of the city. He was born on a
farm near Humphrey, June 19, 1887.
Last spring he went to Saskatchewan,
where he was .employed on a ranch
belonging to his brother, but on ac
count of failing health returned home
a few weeks ago. Last night he was
not feeling well but no alarm was felt
as to his condition, and he died sudden
ly this morning from an attack of
heart failure. Definite arrangements
for the funeral have not been complet
ed, pending an answer from the bro
ther in Canada, but it will probably
be held Sunday afternoon from the
Catholic church. He is survived b
his parents, five brothers, Henry and
August Meyers, of Landis, Saskatche
wan, and George, John and Michael
Meyer, of Coumbus, and one sister,
Mrs. Anna Kuhlmann, of Melrose,
A rather heavier vote than was gen
erally expected was polled at the pri
mary election held yesterday over
Platte county. While the presence of
a circus in Columbus was thought to
have an appreciable effect on the vote
in the country precincts, still many
fanners left the city in time to reach
home and vote before the polls had
closed in the evening. There had been
much speculation as to who would he
the winners of democratic nominatons
for county treasurer, judge and clerk,
there being seven candidates for the
former position, and four each of the
two latter. However, the indications
today are that Otto Heuer has won by
a small margin for treasurer, with
Shell Clark a close second and
Edmund Miles third. There is no
question but that had either Miles or
Clark been out of the race, the other
would have been an easy winner, as
many of those who voted for one
would in all probability have voted
for the other with the one out of the
way. In the first ward, which is the
home of both Heuer and Schwarz, the
former had a very heavy majority. In
the race for county judge, Judge
Ratterman appears to have been an
easy winner, while John Graf had
smooth saiing in his campaign for
county clerk. Another interesting
fight was on between C. M. Gruenther
and Louis Held for clerk of the dis
trict court. Mr. JLJtuenther finally car
rying the honors off with a tremendous
majority, apparently carrying every
voting precinct in the county. No
returns are available today on the re
sult for the republican nominations,
but it is supposed that John R. Lucs
chen has been nominated for sheriff.
Daniel Schram for treasurer, Gideon
Braun for superintendent and F. W.
Edwards, of Lindsay, for surveyor.
Many republicans wrote in the name
of Eugene H. Tiffany for clerk of the
district court, and others wrote in the
name of Mr. Gruenther. At this
writing it is not known whether Mr.
Gruenther will have undisputed sway
by reason of having the nomination of
both parties, or whether he will have
an opponent in Mr. Tiffany. Then
again, it is reported that Mr. Tiffany
has a number of votes for county
judge, and that he may decide to file
an acceptance for that office, in case
no other candidate whose name may
have been written in shall have more
votes. Nothng like definite news
from the state at large are available
today, the afternoon papers presenting
returns from but a few scattered pre
cincts throughout the state, so that it
is impossble to form any conclusion
who the state nominees of either party
Myopia is the most dreaded of all
eye defects, and unless corrected
early with glasses, becomes pro
gressive until the eyes seem to
want to pop out of their sockets.
In high degrees of this trouble it
disfigures the appearance of a
person more than any other eye
trouble. Most all myopic people
think they see as good as normal
because it is so gradual in devel
oping, and as a rule there is no
pain or headaches accompanying
it, it is usually allowed to pro
gress. In school children the first
symptoms are that they cannot
see the blackboard as clearly, as
they should. Near vision may
remain good, but as the case de
velops they must hold their books
too close and has a tendency to
make them stoop-shouldered.
School days are still three weeks
off. Bring your boy or girl to me
if you have any suspicion that
their eyes need help. Properly
fitted lenses always stop the pro
gress of myopia.

Bright and early Tuesday morning
the circus came to town, accompanied
by the usual quota of horses, wagons,
elephant, camels, and other parapher
nolia and followed by the usual num
ber of small boys,- who were on hand
ready to give them the necessary wel
come to the city. The crowd that was
here from all parts of the surround
ing country, is estimated by many to
have been one of the largest ever as
sembled in Columbus, some, having
driven as far as forty miles. It was a
banner day for everybody that had
anything to offer to eat fort he hungry
masses, and as one restauranteur said
this morning, "When we got through,
there was nothing but myself, the ice
box and the stove left in the kitchen. "
By the way, did you ever go out and
see a circus crowd when they are not
busy? A representative of The Tribune-Journal
took advantage of the
opportunity to see a few things aside
from the regular show. Some were
doing their laundry work, some wash
ing dishes, some eating, some had
sought a shady spot in the shade of a
tent and were enjoyng a midday nap,
others had gathered in little knots and
were talkng of something perhaps of
home,-or possibly of their experiences
in some other town where they had
appeared and in one place, apart
from any of her companins, one young
lady was writing a letter. And as
we watched this phase of life, we
thought of the old savin? that "One
naif the people do not know how the
other half lives." Where do all
these people come from, and why do
they submit to the hardships incident
to their lives of apparent pleasure and
luxury? Far from home and friends,
exposed to a score of perils, and all
for the sake of the few paltry dollars
which the spectators are willing to pay
for this entertainment, a single mis
paced step of which might provoke a
tragedy before your very eyes. Yet,
as you look at all this and think of
it, the words of the world's greatest
showman come instinctively to your
mind, that "the American people like
to be humbugged. "
