A note from.E. Pierce of New
Tacoma, W. T., under date of Aug.
12th, informs us that he desires the

from this fact and this query that
our former friend and fellow-citizeu

John Strasscr of Jackson was in

of preventing any body else from
taking it, and that he does not pur

An other incident showing the
importance of hitching teams took
place Saturday last. Wm. Grant
had purchased a threshing machine
and had loaded it ou his wagon and
stepped iuto Lamb's grocery on Ne
braska Avenue, being just a few
feet from the lines, wheu his team
became frightened at something and
ran tearing up tho 6treet, upsetting
tho machine at tho corner near the
residence of L. Gerrard Esq. No
one was hurt, or even narrowly
escaped iujury, that we know of,
but the very next team that ruus
away in the city, may perchance
kill some one. It is important that
those in charge of teams should see
that they aro secure.

Saml. A. Russell, Esq., paid a
short visit to friends in this city last
week. He left on the Thursday
morning train for his home at
Washington, Iowa. He is the same
amusing, social aud companionable
gentleman as iu days of yore. We
inquired as to his sight now, if it
had improved "never better," was
his reply, "can seo ninety-five mill

"Why, I saw the eclipse and they
say it was ninety-five million miles
A week ago yesterday, a son
of Geo. Graham, living eighteen

about fourteen years old, shot him

muzzle towards him. Drs. Mitchell
aud Martyn of this placo were sent
for, but before their arrival tho lad
was out of misery, living just four
hours after the accident. Dr. Mar

Ou Saturday last wc witnessed
the operation of Juo. Routson's hay
press for putting hay, straw, &c, in
shape for use as fuel. We suggest
ed to John the propriety of rigging
his machine for, exhibition at the
Couuty Fair, so that the public
could see its utility. There is heat
enough goes to wate every year by
prairie fire to warm every body in
tho land during the severest winter,
if we can but put hay and straw
in convenient shape for burning iu
our etoves. John's plan is certainly
unique, and experienco alone will
tell whether it will be profitable.
On last Thursday afternoon
Edward Jesse Curtis and a boy by
the name of Cory, who livo about
twelve miles from Columbus, aud iu
Butler county, were out hunting
prairie chickens. In shooting at one,
Cory accidental! v shot young Curtis,
tho load being scattered from the
breast bone to the groin. Dr. E. L.
Siggins of this city, who was in the
neighborhood at the time, was call
ed in, arriving fifteen minutes after
the accident. He lived about twenty-four
hours, resting easily most of
the time, until nature called for a
motion of the bowels, when he was
seized with violent retching and
vomiting, aud died iu great pain.
How do our Democratic friends
who have the matter iu hands pro
pose to run the machine this fall ?
August 17th, was the day appointed
for the meeting of the Democratic
Central Committee, and the com
mittee met on that day, but what did
they do? Where is the report of
their proceedings? Why aro they
not published? When arc nomina
tions to be made and how? Why
all this silence? We believe it was
Thomas Jefferson, the father of De
mocracy who proclaimed open, fair
discussion of all public matters, or
words to that effect, and is it possi
ble that our friend A. W. Crites, an
avowed disciple of aposflc Thomas,
is afraid of the light shining ou the
doings of that central committee of
ten days ago ? Let us have the facts,
not as political opponents, but as
neighbors interested iu public mat
tcrs. An interested citizen sends us
the following quips:
Detroit, Michigan, has long been
noted for its quaint nnd funny re
ports of the police court. Among
all of which there were none where
in Bijah was told to release the pris
oucr because he was too drunk for
When a man is too drunk for trial
is he sober enough to run loose in
Is it a fact that a man from tho
country when too drunk to under
stand that a court has power to try,
aud to inflict punishment, he is too
drunk to run at large in the streets?
What is the differenco between a
rural drur.t and a city tight?
From our knowledge of our Po
lice Judge, wo think the questions
imply an injustice to him. Ho has
requested the Marshal not to bring
drunken men before him for trial,
and this the Marshal has not done
It is singular what effect a little
paragraph in a newspaper will have.
Even a small country paper, which
gives scarcely any news or anything
else, has its influence. Yea, even a
professed newspaper, whose items
can not always be taken as strictly
in line with perpendicular facts, has
its power. As for instance: our
eight-paged, marginal cotemporary
had the following last week: "A
two-story brick hank building will
be erected on 11th street, on Vincent
Kummer's lot. Work will com
mence the latter part of this month."
There is nothing on tho face of this
little four-line item that looks out of
the way, and yet it was the cause of
considerable talk on Monday. Wm.
Gerhold was in town that morning,
and meeting John McMahon, the
president of the new bank, secured
the position of cashier. We have
not heard who the other officers of
the bank are or are to be Mr.Kum
mcr disclaims any connection with
it except as builder of the building.
Last Friday being the fifth an
niversary of the organization of the
Engiue Co., was celebrated in fine
style by a parade of the Department
in the afternoon, and a ball in the
evening. The procession attracted
no little attention, the Brass Band
discoursing lively music, a mounted
guard, dressed in Japan uniform
keeping the streets clear, and the
companies following in full uniform,
the hook and ladder truck, the en
gine and the hose cart being splen-
aiuiy aecoratcd, and drawn by gray
horses. Tho Department were "re
ceived" at the Opera Houso by the
City Council (his honor, the Mayor,
being sick and absent) and short,
appropriate speeches were made by
Wm. Bnrgcss, J. E. North, E. J.
Baker, and E. Pohl, of the Council,
and J. W. Early, Foreman of the
Engine Co., J. A. Baker, Chief of
the Dep't., Geo. Clother, Foremau of
the Hook and Ladder Co.. and Mr.
P. B. Bonesteel. Notwithstanding
the heat and dust and general disa
greeableness of the day aud evening,
the ball wa3 well attended and cverv
thiug passed off pleasantly.
One day recently wc spent ten
minutes with C. A. Speicc, Esq.,
Columbus's steady-headed mayor,
in his garden iu the eastern portion
of the city. He invited us down to
sec his bees, thinking that wc were
an old bee-raiser which we woren't,
aud of course couldn't give him any
information. Mr. S. has ten col
onies of bees and has had good suc
cess with them. He is very fond of
them ; takes great delight in study
ing their habits, and in caring for
them, aud consequently has his re
ward in the harvest of honey which
he gathers. We admire tho men
who strike out in new lines in new
lands. With Mr. A. J. Arnold and
Fred. Reiuicr, wo believe, Mr.
Speicc is one of the pioneers here
in this industry, which wc hope to
sec extended with the growth of
flowers and applo-blossoms, the
thicker coming of the fragraut
peach, and tho sweet clovor blos
som. Little by little the timo will
come when we can sit down iu tho
morning to strawberries aud cream,
sweet honey on bread spread with
clover butter, with plenty of rich
fruit besides, and all other things in
proportion, the great beauty of
which will be, not that wo have
them, but that we raised them,
they are our own. Although Mr.
S. wished us to sec nothing but his
bees, wo could not fail to notico his
apples and grapes, which he has in
quantities sufficient to show the ca
pabilities of Nebraska soil when
presided over by Intelligence and
Hope, and cared for by Industry
and Perseverance. One other thing
we must mention, viz., a cave. Wo
had seen but two of these bofore,
here, one at S. J. Marmoy'a iu the
city, tho other at John ill-owner's.
These are not made above the sur
face, as is the custom east,, but,
nearly altogether, under tlic surface,
simply a house iu the ground, the
walls, the natural earth, beveled to
wards the floor, the roof framed
strong, covered with boards, and
these, jn their turn, with earth,
making a very convenient milk
houso and place for storing vegeta
bles, which, to our mind is much
better, moro convenient, and more
wholesome than the cellars under
our dwellings. Those Ncbraskaus
who aro dilatory about planting
trees, would havo their energies
aroused somewhat by a sight of the
large, broad-brauchiug,cottou woods
and box-elders iu Mr. Speice's gar
den, and would straightway go and
follow his example.
Wo learn from Mr. Huuucman,
who it is well known is a large
dealer in grain in this city, that the
wheat of tho new crop already
brought to market falls short in
quality with the average crop of last
year, but due allowance, he thinks,
should be made ou account of it's
not having passed through the prop
er sweat. He still hopes that after
proper curing tho present crop will
grade up better. He gives tho dif
ference in prices in the Chicago
market by which the buyers hero
will have to be governed. Wheat
