THE CATHOLIC CONGREGATION AT HUMPHREY was organized in
the year 1883, when the first church was built where the present building
stands and in 1885 it was found necessary to enlarge the building. The present
ohurch, a picture of which we give above, was erected in 1893 and finished in 1891.
Dedicated, September 20th, 1891, by Rt. Rev. Bishop Scannell of Omaha. The
cost was $32,000. The bnilding is handsomely erected in pressed brick, is 164
feet long and GO feet wide. The steeple is 170 feet high, with a tower clock cost
iug$725. The main altar, a present from Mr. Thomas Ottis, cost $1,500; the two
side altars cost, each, $500. The paintings on the walls and ceilings were done by
Mr. Kloer of St. Louis at a cost of $1,000. The pipe organ also cost $1,000. The
windows, with the exception of the three sanctuary windows, cost each $55. The
sanctuary windows cost each $155, given by the following: The window represent
ing St. Francis was presented by the members of the 3d order of St. Francis; the
window, "St. Anthony," was given by Anthony Eisenmenger, Anthony Osterhoff
and Anthony Weibel. The window, "Sacred Heart of Jesus," was presented by
Mr. Sullivan. The fourteen stations of tho Cross were imported from France, and
were given by Gerhard and Joseph Brockhaus at a cost of $070. The steam heat
ing apparatus for the church cost $1,630.
The congregation consists of about 200 families, mostly Germans. The first
pastor was Rev. Theodor Arenty, succeeded by the following named priests: Rev.
Jacobus Nolte, Rev. Rudolph Korstmann, Rev. Angelus Bill and the present pas
tor who has been there since January 99, Rev. Florentius Kurzer. Beside the
pastor, there reside three priests, the pastors for St. Mary's, for Tarnov, Madison
and St. Anthony's.
The monastery is immediately back of the church, and the school building
west of that. The school is attended by about 280 children with four teachers as
instructors. The bnilding seen to the left of the church is the monastery. The
church structure is the most magnificent in Platte county, and one of the very
finest in the state of Nebraska.

Schnyler needs a park and needs
one badly. Columbus has a nice little
park that adds considerably to the value
of the town, to say nothing of appear
ances. Let us have a park. Schuyler
Quill. Not very many residence prop
erties in Columbus but are supplied with
trees in abundanco and lawns, making
scores of fine private parks. The found
ers of the city provided at an early day
for a number of public parks, setting
aside blocks of land in different quar
ters of the city for tbe specific purpose
It is one of these, near tbe business por
tion of the city to which the Quill re
fers, and which is a wonderful satis
faction to the city and its temporary
guests, as well, many of whom, traveling
salesmen, make it a point to reach Co
lumbus to enjoy any extra time they
may have. A good public park, con
veniently located, well kept and safely
guarded against toughs is a great good
thing for a city.
