Correspondence between Colonel G.
A, Eberly and a number of former
members of the Nebraska National
Guards would indicate that a company
of the guards will soon be organized in
Columbue. The efforts at this end of
the line have been mainly under the
guidance of former Leuutenant A. C.
Boone, who announces that there is
still room for a number of enlistments
to make the enrollment complete.
Colonel Eberly, in a recent letter ex
pressed the opinion that there would
soon be room for a Columbus company,
and hoped that the enlistment would
be completed as soon as possible.
The organization of a company will
mean a good thing for Columbus in
several ways. It will bring the mem
bers into a closer intercourse with
each other; it will mean training for
them, which they could receive in no
other way; it will mean an advertise
ment of the city, particularly at the
time of the annual encampments; and
it will mean the disbursement of sev
eral hundred dollars annually in the
city in the way of salaries paid to the
Try Herring's C. O. D. Laundry.
