A story is told by and of one of our
Columbus school boys about as follows:
Friday afternoon last he was making his
way to school when he was accosted by
a gentleman who inquired for the High
school building. The young man said
"That is where I am going; are you
headed that way?" Walking along to
gether, the young man used quite a
number of slang expressions, and came
to the conclusion that the man beside
him was at least a professor. He had
been talking to Chancellor McLean, and
will doubtless hereafter be more choice
in his language, even among his com
panions. A visit to Tannahill's place east.of
the city will convince doubtful ones of
the utility of having waterworks for
gardening and orchard purposes. Mr.
Tannahill has a windmill, large, strong,
durable, common-sense, and of his own
construction (described minutely in
former numbers of The Journal), which
runs two large pumps while the wind is
blowing, and keeps full a large reservoir
from which he can put water on all his
grounds garden and orchard. Besides
the windmill he has another well and
horse-power, water elevator that he can
use in case of necessity. All together it
is a valuable plant. We noticed the
Wisconsin weeping willow, two years
from the planting of the cutting, with a
growth of ten feet, and cottonwoods two
years, twenty feet
The kinetoscope gives the most
realistic picture of movable things, and
is simply marvelous in the exactness,
the minuteness, of its reproductions.
It is only when man in his efforts coin
cides with nature that he even seems to
accomplish anything in the way of
creative art The sun paints the pic
ture, the artificial strong light repro
duces it, the artist manipulates, the
people pay a little money, and in com
fort view the great moving scenes in the
world's life. What a record for the pre
servation to future generations of the
knowledge of these times! Not only the
pictures of our great and good people,
our beloved friends, but also their walks
and talks, their gestures and their
voices stored away for the information
of future generations.
Last Monday at Columbus Robert
McKee and Miss Jennie Costello were
made man and wife. Miss Costello re
sided in Fullerton last summer where
she made many friends. Robert needs
no introduction to Nance county people
as he is well known all over the county.
As a member of the rustling firm of
Kennedy & McKee, our people have
seen a modest beginning grow into one
of the most flourishing firms in town.
The best wishes of all our people go out
to this newly married couple who wish
them all joy and comfort that come to
married life. Tuesday evening the band
boys accompanied by the hose team and
their cart, called on Mr. and Mrs. McKee
and gave them a serenade. Robert ap
peared on the scene and thanked the
boys kindly and passed the smokes.
Friday John Ahrens, a farmer of
Bismark township, lost a $100 mare as
the result of a runaway. His team was
tied to post, and in information is that
there was no trouble until a base-ball
struck the animal and frightened her;
she threw up her head, breaking the
snap by which she was held, and thenH
the race began, the team colliding
against a U. P. crossing sign-post on
North street snd horsespoet and buggy
badly demoralized. One of the team
got loose and was afterwards caught in
the southern part of the city. The oth
er struck the post so hard that a num
ber of her teeth were knocked out, and
Veterinary Gabler said that the colli
sion was so hard that the animal's spine
was paralyzed; no relief could be given,
and Policeman Schack shot the animal.
The buggy was badly demolished.
Thursday afternoon Joseph Zwein
ner and his daughter were going home
when the team took sudden fright on
the Loup bridge, made a sudden twist
sideways, broke the tongue of the buggy
short off behind the neckyoke, letting
the tongue down, the end catching on
the floor of the bridge, and the force was
such as to throw the buggy forward onto
the team. The man was hurt on face
and hands and was unconscious for
quite a while. His daughter was pretty
badly hurt and will probably not re
cover for two or three weeks. The bug
gy, which was nearly new, was a top
buggy, and reduced to kindling wood.
The horses were caught at the end of
the bridge, and the injured couple
started to walk home, but were over
taken at Barnum's creek by Henry
Hauser who took them to their home,
about five miles away. They were very
fortunate in escaping with their lives.
The Newspaper Auxiliary of Omaha
has this to say in its last issue, which we
reproduce for our readers. The man
who wrote this reads hundreds of news
papers daily, and appreciates their good
qualities, at least: The Columbus Jour
nal the past month began its twenty
eighth year,with M. K. Turner, who was
the moving spirit when it started, still in
charge. Papers in Nebraska that have
been on the ground longer than The
Journal are few and far between. It
started about the time statehood com
menced, and it has been uninterruptedly
appearing every week since, always reli
able, always truthful, always giving full
measurement for value received. Col
umbus and all that section of Nebraska
hadn't a great deal to boast of when The
Journal undertook the work of enlight
ening people, of educating- them to suc
cessful pursuits, of setting forth the then
present and future possibilities of that
section of the state, but now at the age
of 28 years it looks back on these won
derful accomplishments that the Auxili
ary is free to confess The Journal has
been an important factor in bringing

der his new march', which he has dedi
cated to that club. The club decided
to make this a Pohl day, changing the
date of meeting for his convenience.
The members of the club, having pic
tures of the distinguished German artist,
brought them along and arranged them
in prominent places about the house.
This part of the arrangement was a sur
prise to Mr. Pohl and his emotions may
be imagined. After he had rendered the
new piece to the satisfaction of the club,
his other pieces ware played by club

Abaer Gerrard Dead.
One by one are passing to the Spirit
Land the early settlers of this region of
the state. Among the many who very
frequently came to Columbus to trans
act business, bringing their farm prod
ucts for sale and carrying home needed
groceries, dry-goods, farm implements,
etc., (and there were a host of them in
every direction), none were more fair
minded or more welcome than Abner
Gerrard of Butler county.
The Bellwood Gazette of the 14th says
that he departed this life Sunday, May
9, at 11 a. m., at the home of bis son,who
resides three miles west of Bellwood,
Abner Gerrard, aged 74 years, 9 months
and 25 days. Funeral services were held
at the M. E. church Monday afternoon,
Rev. Smith officiating, after which the
remains were laid away to rest in the
Abner Gerrard was born in Ohio, July
15, 1822, was married to Miss Hanna
Eees, Feb. 14, 1846, she preceding him
to the grave nearly four years ago. He
came from Indiana to Nebraeka among
the early settlers in March, 1869, settling
on a homestead three miles west of Bell
wood where he has always resided until
three years previous to his death which
time he lived with his son and daughter.
He has been a great sufferer for over
three years, first taken down with la
grippe then that dreaded disease paraly

The deceased leaves one son and one
daughter, three sisters and one brother
to mourn bis great loss.

SufEbring Humanity !
To aijj Sufferers: I write this for
the benefit similar sufferers may derive
from it, unsolicited and out of pure
sympathy to those poor mortals who
may be afflicted with that dread disease
In September of 18S7 tho disease
known by the medical fraternity as
hipuserethemustosns first made its ap
pearance on my face and soon spread
across the nose and over a greater part
of the face, causing unsightly sores.
After nearly ten years of constant doc
toring with many noted physicians aud
deriving temporary benefit ut times, my
system at last reached a stage of com
plete collapse, and I was fiat on my back
with no ray of hope. At this stage I
was recommended to try Dr. Lieber of
Omaha; after an examination he said he
could cure me. As a drowning person
grasping at a straw I entered his private
hospital, and in a short space of time I
was able to leave the hospital a well
woman. My face is now clear and shows
but little sign of the dread disease.
While iu tho hospital there wero also
removed from my body seven cancers,
and that without the use of the knife.
The medical fraternity scoff at the idea
of cancers being removed without the
knife. But I am a living proof that it
can be and is done by Dr. Lieber. To
all those poor mortals who have given
up the battle against this dread disease,
T snv flnn't desnair. but consult with the
doctor. I make this statement out of'
pure sympathy for similar sufferers, and
will be glad to see or answer any in
quiries in regard to my case.

vicinity of Madison are very busy these
days. One day last week Manager Liv
inghouse of the Butter k Egg company,
took in 51 cases of eggs. That is 1,530
dozen, or 18,360 eggs. The industrious
hen should set a good example to the
average calamity howler. She attends
rignt to her "knitting" in good times or
bad, and works all the harder during the
prevalence of low prices.
"Kearney Era: What is the matter with
somo of the farmers? Have they not
got all the land they can cultivate with
out cultivating the highways? In trav
eling over the county last week we saw
a number of places where the roads
have been plowed on either side until no
more than one rod is left and in some
places no more than a wagon track is
left, and where the roads have been
graded the ditches are plowed full, thus
leaving no chance for the water to run
off. What use is it to work the roads
and then have them destroyed? This
kind of work should stop. Sixty-six
feet is the width of a public highway.

naturally gravitate to Chicago as the
great commercial center. Passengers
re-visiting friends or relatives in the
eastern states always desire to "take in"
Chicago en route. All classes of passen

the Chicago, Milwaukee k St. Paul Rail
way, via Omaha and Council Blaffs,
affords excellent facilities to reach their
destinations iu a manner that will be
sure to give the utmost satisfaction.
A reference to the time.tables will in
dicate the route to be chosen, and, by
asking any principal agent west of the
Missouri river for a ticket over the
Chicago, Council Bluffs k Omaha Short
Line of the Chicago, Milwaukee k St.
Paul Railway, you will be cheerfully
furnished with the proper passport via
Omaha and Chicago. .Please note that
all of the "Short Line" trains arrive in
Chicago in ample time to connect with
the express trains of all the great through
