Twenty-five dollars and costs was
the penalty imosed upon Edward
Iliggins, Jr., as a result of a fight in
which he engaged with Frank Sul
livan at Platte Center on July 29.
Sullivan had his right eye injured
during the mill, and he brought action
against Iliggins on the charge of as
sault with intent todogreat bodiiy in
jury. This would require that the de
fendant be bound over to the district
court, but Saturday forenoon, after
examining a dozen or more witnesses
the county court found no just cause
to hold him to the district court. The
testimony of several witnesses show
ed that Sullivan was really the ag
gressor, and Iliggins claimed that his
fight was in self defence. When the
case was dismissed by the court a new
petition was immediately filed charg
ing assault and battery, to which Mr.
Iliggins pleaded guilty and was assess
ed the fine of twenty-five dollars and
costs which he paid.

The members of the Order of Owls
and their families and a few friends
will journey to Stevens' lake Sunday
to spend the day "next to nature."
The ball game that had been announc
ed for last Sunday between the Owls
and the railroad men did not mater
ialize very strongly. That is, the
the boys played alright, but the day J
was so cool that there was very few
sjectators. A game has been called
or September 10.
Columbus has known good things
before, but probably no musical event
in the history of the city has ever
been looked forward to with as much
expectation and eagerness as the com
ing of the Royal Italian Guards Band.
There is probably no band organiza
tion in Amreica today that contains so
many really musical artists as this
band. There are twenty-three musi
cians, and they are under the personal
direction of Signor Vito Lacerenzo.
The announcement of the leadership
along should be sufficient to fill the
North Opera House as it has never
been filled before. Lacerenzo is an
idealist in music. He does not be
lieve in the music that appeals to the
ear only to arouse the passion for the
moment and then be forgotten. He
believes in harmony and sweet melody
that gives quiet and refreshment to
tired souls, that pictures happy
dreams and strengthens purpose. He
believes in a kind of music that
stimulates one to high thoughts and
desire for achievement of good things.
In other words he plays only the
world's greatest music, such as the
grand seiections from "Faust," "II
Trovatore" and "Martha", the cele
brated "Sextette from Luca, "the
"Quintette from Rigoletto," the
"Star Song from Tanhauser," the
overtures from "Wiliam Tell", and
Orpheon, " the " Poet And Peasant, ' '
the Pilgrim's Chorus," "Lapholma,"
"the Medley of 1861," and other na
tional airs. Some of his own best
compositions are interperted through
out the progam. The members of the
band are, every one of them, great
artists. This accounts for their ex
traordnary value, their equisite shad
ings and superb interpretations. Four
of the men are graduates of the Con
servatory of Naples after fourteen
years of study there. A number of
them are from Royal conservatories
requiring ten and twelve year's study
there in before graduation. All are
conservatory graduates, several having
held high positions as instructors.
This magnificent band is coming to
Columbus for two performances on
Thursday, August 31. Any one who
missing to hear them will miss the
greatest musical that ever offered
them. The children will be admitted
in the afternoon for 25 cents. The
general admission are, afternoon, 35,
50, and 75 cents. Evening, 50, 75,
and $1.00 Seats are going fast

Columbus can now boast of one of
the finest shining parlors in the west.
James Politis has had the building re

He will also make a business of clean

The Reece Shoe Company held
their formal opening last Saturday in
the new Gerard bnilding on Thirteenth
street. Mr. Reece is a new man in
Columbus, having recently come here
from Ashand where he had been in the
same business for about twenty years.
Columbus is always glad to welcome
new business men into our city, and
to see that busness men in other
towns recognize the openings which
we have to offer.
A deal was made last Wednesday
by which Dr. N. Matzen sold his re
sidence property on Fourteenth street
to W. J. Walter, possession being
given, today. Dr. and Mrs. Matzen
expect to leave tomorrow for an ex
tended trip to the Pacific coast, visit
ing first in Washington and Oregon,
and then going to Southern Califor
nia, where the doctor has real estate
interests, and where they will visit at
the home of Dr. J. E. Paul. Dur
ing their absence, the doctor's office
will be in charge of his partner, Dr.
Rev. W. L. Dibble and family ex
pect to leave Columbus about Sept
ember 15, for Worthington, Minne
sota, where they intend to make their
future home. They report that there
is a movement on foot there to effect
a union of the Cngregational and
Presbyterian churches, making one or
ganization of about four hundred mem
bers. It will be remembered that Mr.
Dibble tendered his resigination to
the local Congregational church some
time ago, to be effective at any time
within one year, and as he has seen
this opportunity, he has decided to
take it. The many frends of the fam
ily in Columbus will regret to see
them leave here, and every one will
wish them well in their new home.
