"We have received our copy of
Hill's Manual of Business and Social
Forms, from Mr. W. II. Motter, the
agent who has been canvassing in
this vicinity. "We have not had
time for examining the work at

index of its character and contents.
It is a treatise ou the art of penman
ship, on short-hand writing, on letter-writing,
on intercourse on
courtship marriage &c. &c. The
book is printed on heavy, tinted
paper, is neatly bound, and is orna

David Anderson informs us
that "Western Nebraska, Colorado,
and a large portion of "Wyoming has
becu covered for weeks with six to
twelve inches of snow ; that the
cattle on the great western ranges
arc already suffering for food, and
especially do they run wild iu search
of water, as the rivers, ponds, lakes,
&c, are all completely frozen over.
Barton, of North Platte, the Schi
dles and other large owners of stock
along the Platte, have their herders
break the ice at various points along
the river, and thus their cattle are,
in a measure, provided with water
enough to satisfy the demands of
nature. Mr. Anderson thinks there
will be a lively demand for fat cat
tle during March, April and May in
the Rocky Mountain region, and
that Nebraska and Kansas will find
a good beef market west between
now and grass. Cattle on the west
ern plains arc accumulating so fast
that large owners of stock told Mr.
A. the feed was becoming poorer
each year, and that heavy snows
and great prairie fires were a great
hindrance to the growth and fatten
ing of their cattlo.
Krause's Hardware Store and Wm.
Lamb's Grocery Burned to
the Ground.
All Praise to the Fire Department and
a still air for Confining the Flames.
Monday morning at 1 o'clock an
alarm of fire was given, and a great
many of the citizens of Columbus
were wakened from their slumbers
to find that the fire was at work on
the hardware store of G. II. Krause
& Sons aud the grocery store of
"Wm. Lambadjoiningiton the south,
both of them south of Bouesteel's
two-story brick building on the
corner of Nebraska Avenue and 13th
street, west side. There was but a
breath of wind, so that the fire de
partment was able to keep it in
check. George Fairchild and Otta
Baker, who slept at Arnold's jewel
ry store on the opposite side of the
street, and who went to bed at 20
minutes after twelve, were awaken
ed by the light at five minutes after
one. Just at that time John Mc
Mahon, night watchman, rushed
around the bank corner, crying
"fire." He says that he first noticed
the light when at Grcisen's, on 11th
street, and thinks that the fire must
have originated iu the hack room of
the Krause building, as he had pass
ed it only a few minutes before, and
had uoliccd nothing cut of the way.
It was but a few minutes alter
citizens and the fire department
reached the spot when the walls of
the Krause building gave way and
the Lamb building was past saving.
Nothing was taken out of the hard
ware store, but a few things were
saved out of the grocery, the safe
being carried into the street un
scathed by the fire. In a few min
utes both buildings were burned
down, and the summer kitchen at
tached to the Bonestccl building,
and the small frame west belonging
to E. A. Gerrard were on fire. The
former was torn down and the lat
ter was flooded with water, and all
but tho rear cud saved. Both fire
companies were promptly on hand
and worked like beavers, under the
general supervision of R. II. Henry,
chief of the department, who re
ceives unbounded praise for his
management. He was ably assisted
by George Clother, foreman of the
Hook & Ladder Co., aud his first
assistant Herman Oehlrich, and Jno.
J. Rickly, 1st assistant foreman of
the Engine Co., who took charge in
the absence of the foreman, and
likewise by George Spooner.
The hardware store building be
longed to Will. II. Winterbotham,
and was insured for $1,000. The
stock of hardware, owned by G. II.
Krause & Sons, estimated to be
worth $6,000, was insured to the
amount of $5,000, in the Hartford,
Franklin, Springfield aud Home
Mr. Limb had an insurance ol
$1,G00. His stock is variously esti
mated from $800 to $3,000.
Rev. Sherman, whose family oc
cupy the upper story of the Bone
steel building, lost about fifty dol
lars worth of goods that were stored
iu the summer kitchen.
The south wall of the Bonesteel
building is cracked iu several places.
The fire was most admirably
handled or it would have made sad
havoc iu that part of town the
large frame hotel of Clother's being
just south of the fire. Indeed it was
iu imminent danger at one time,
.some of the shingles on the roof
being on fire. It was exceedingly
fortunate that there was no wind, as
in that case, with the headway the
tire had when first seen, nothing
would have prevented a wide fire
swath through the very heart and
business portion of the city.
Cinders were strewn in every di
rection, aud a small hay-stack in
the rear of T. C. Ryan's grocery on
11th street, south of the R. R. track,
was set on fire, but was immediate
ly put out by Thomas Coffey.
There were powder cans in both
stores, and cartridges, besides, iu
the hardware store, all of which
exploded at intervals, adding to the
iutcrest and danger of the occasion.
The shock of the explosions was
sufficient to break glass on the op
posite side of the street, and loud
enough to he heard at E. M. Spar
hawk's, three miles away.
Kraue's safe ( a Diebold ) was
opened, after being "as red as a
cherry," having fallen into the cel
lar, and the contents were intact
steamed a little, the backs of the
ledgers and day-books warped
somewhat, but the contents all right,
and the money, some two huudred
dollars, iu prime condition.
John J. Rickly had his back bad
ly wrenched, and in removing
Krause's safe he mashed the thumb
of his right hand, so that the nail
had to be pulled off.
Herman Oehlrich had his left
shoulder put out of joint.
The clerk at Lamb's was aroused
from his slumbers by the falling
The only life lost was that of
' Frank," "Will Winterbotham's
larirc dog, that wa3 at the time in
the hardware store.
Several pieces of silver money
were found, some blackened, some
slightly curved and some melted
out of shape, which the boys will
keep as relics.
Georgo Spooner 6aye that when.
the door of the grocery was knock
ed in, he saw a man enter, pick up
a large box full of soap, and make
way with it. If it had been con
venient to do so, he says he would
have water-marked him.
From all we can learn, the night
watchman was tho first or nearly
the first to give the alarm, and,
judging by the rapidity of its work
after it was seen, there can be little
doubt that It was seen very soou
after it began.
Tho fire originated iu the Krause
building, but just where or how can
not be ascertained. They had had
no fire in the shop, and a bracket
lamp over the writing desk iu the
store had been put out at 11 o'clock.
Probably half the town was asleep
through the fire, and heard nothing
of it until breakfast time. This
suggests to us to recommend that
in case of fire everybody should
yell at the top of his voice, and all
the bells in the city be rung.
Now will be the harvest of the
The "Man up a Tree," the re
publican editor of our Democratic
contemporary, the man who keeps
the Diary, pretends great concern
for the Journal, and wants to know
where it stands on the U. P. R. R.
question; whether its editor has a
pass, &c. For fear the anxious soul
aforesaid may burst its mortal
prison if the desired information is
not forthcoming, wc will state that
the Journal is now standing where
it always has stood, and where it
expects ever to stand in the future
for justice to the road, and justice
to the public. The Journal be
lieves that a railroad corporation is
equally as amenublc to law as is a
hank corporation, an insurance cor
poration, or any other sort of com
pany to which special powers for
special purposes nie given. If the
legislature has the right to say that
money shall not be loaned for more
than eight or ten or twelve percent,
per annum, it has the right to fix a
reasonable tariff for the transporta
tion of goods aud persons, within
the limit of its jurisdiction. Cor
porations (the whole brood of them)
arc the creatures of law, and can not
rise above their creator. There are
all shades of opinion, on all sorts of
corporations, but justice to all will
hurt no one, although it may be of
fensive to demagogues, who are but
as bubbles on the current of public
opinion, and yet pretend to be the
cause of the current.
As to whether the editor of this
paper has a pass or not, it may sur
prise our anxiously-inquiring friend
to 6ay, we have not, but if w e had it
would not influence our opinion or
action one way or the other. There
are men, no doubt, whose possession
of an invitation to even a partially
free ride would be "sufficient to put
a collar" on their necks, and, judg
ing from the language of our pecu
liar friend, we might reasonably
suppose that he was one of this kind,
as men are prone to judge of other's
motives by their own.
It may be well enough to add that
wc attach no particular importance
to the above except as a possible
means of saving our very peculiar
friend from wearing anxiety aud
carking care on our behalf.
