-The Easter services at the Epis
copal church on Sunday are said to
have been quite interesting. Seven
were received to the communion of
the church by letter of transfer and
tho whole number present larger
than at any previous communion.
The Rector stated that the nnmher
of communicant members had more
than doubled during the year.
A shrewd man claims that
money invested in cattle at any thing
like a reasonable price will pay and
pay richly. Think of it. They ca?i
be kept, on grass and hay, at a nom
inal cost; aud with a little feed of
grain during ver cold weather, will
thrive nicely. Invest in good stock
at every opportunity. If you al
ready have some, get more. If you
have none now, make a strong effort
aud invest your first ready money.
The entertainment at the Con
gregational church Wednesday even
ing of next week, for tho benefit of
the improvement fund of the society,
will consist, in part, of a lecture by
Mrs. J. H. Reed on "Tho Elevation
of Domestic Labor." The invaria
ble good 6eiisu which has charac
terized the utterances of this lady
on the platform is a guarantee of
the intellectual treat in store for the
audience who may hear her.
We are informed that "sharpers"
are at work in Kausas and Nebraska,
securing money from homesteaders
under the plea that it is necessary to
secure the passage of a certain bill
now before Congress, granting an
additional 80 acres to homesteaders.
Have nothing to do with them. Sign
none of their papers. Kick them
out of tho house. When any law
touching your rights is passed you
will learn of it, and can then apply
at the land office.
J. N. Moody formerly of this
county, now of Harlan, called on us
Friday. Since teaching here, he
has secured a tract of land near
Alma, the county-seat of Harlan,
and also, as a notice in to-day's
JoniNAL will show, a life-partner
in the person of Miss Mary, E.
Jones. Success to him. Of course
he wouldn't think of keeping house
without the Journal, which will
always rejoice to hear of good for
tune to him and his.
Some foreign curiosity hunters,
stopping oh" here tho other, day in
quired of Mr. Ileilzman who' that
long-haired man was standing on
the platform (referring to "Antelope
Dick.") "Oh, that's the King of all
the Indians," mysteriously whisper
ed Ileilzman. "What is he doing
here?'' anxiously inquired Curiosity.
"Teaching penmanship," was the
laconic reply. Curiosity followed
him up and spent several dollars in
drinks before he got through with
the "King of all Indians."
Columbus history, the coming
summer, promises to develop more
social scabs than at any time hereto
fore. Our policemen say there are
quite a number of suspicious char
acters around, and some that arc not
so suspicious, simply because the
object of their sojourn is definitely
known to those who keep posted in
public local matters. It would be
gratifying if Columbus, while grow
ing to metropolitan proportions,
could avoid the great vices that all
large cities seem subjected to.
The examination in Dist. No. 1
closed on Friday at noou. From the
fourth grade up they were entirely
written, except history. The stand
ings in geography and grammar
were unusually good. The third
grade arithmetic and history were
not so good. A few will be promot
ed from the Intermediate Depart
ment. The next term begins Mon
day, April 5th. The first grade
having completed arithmetic, will
begin the study of geometry. The
second grade will begin physical
geography and physiology.
One of the reasons why Nebras
ka, though a prairie state, is free.
from the destructive malaria so
prevalent in other prairie countries
is that she is the lowest shelf on the
Rocky mountain range, aud every
now and then is very completely
ventilated by the strong mountain
breezes that sweep down upon us
from the northwest, to say nothing
of the almost constant zephyrs that
whisper encouragingly in the ear of
weary toil and fan his heated brow.
Our grand young State has more
fine days in the year than any land
we know of.
The recent wind storm was a
very bad time for fires, and we have
several of them to note. On Friday
at the farm owned by John Wiggins,
in Butler county, (the old Tannahill
place,) a part of the corral, grove,
sheds, granary and grain were burn
ed. None of the 175 head of cattle
were injured, and the dwelling
house was saved. We learn from
Gus. Bechcr that the entire loss was
about $700, the loss to insurance
companies abotit $125. John Love
lace, near the same place lost every
thing he had except a threshing
machine. Mr. II HI, a few miles
south of Rising, lost all he had in the
shape of destructible? stable, gra
nary, harness, wagon and three
horses two of them perishing,
hitched to a wagon.
Charles Kiueep, the mail carrier
between this city and David, came
nearly being blown into tho PJattc
river last Saturday. While coming
in with tho mail, on the bridge the
wind had a fair sweep at him, lifting
the bed and cover of his hack oft' the
running gears, and throwing the
same against the side of the bridge,
lie grabbed the mail and held to it,
but the box and cover were mashed
to pieces, and the team was caught
near the Loup bridge. Those who
sit comfortably at the centre-lablc,
near a warm fire, and under the
bright rays of a kerosene lamp read
their letters and newspapers, are not
always mindful of the tronbles and
trials, the adventures and tho hair
breadth escapes of Uncle Samuel's
boys who carry the mails.
Quite a number of Odd Fellows
went to Albion last week to organ
ize a lodge. While there, an acci
dent which might have been serious,
happened to one of the number,
namel y John Hbcr, the fat, heavy
and jolly 'auctioneer from this place.
Going out to feed his horses with an
armful of corn, he dropped partly
into a well that was partly covered
over with boards, and clung to the
curbing, calling lustily for help
which came in the person of Fred.
Matthews, who with other help,
finally succeeded in pulling him out.
One of tho party declared that he
had often heard" of the old oaken
bucket which hung in the well, but
this was the first time he had come
across a tub in a well. The boys
who met John yesterday (his firdt
day ont).were singing "Ding, dong,
bell, Johnnie's in the well." We
may state that the armful of corn
went down into the water.
The Democratic Convention,
Mr. President and Gentlemen of
the Convention: Tho Journal, tho'
opposed to you in politics, takes
pleasure in welcoming you lo the
city, because you are rcprcseutativo
Nebraska meu imbued with tho
western spirit of progress; because
you arc cougregated from every
part of the State to give free expres
sion to your honest opinions on a
matter important to all of us, and
closely couuected with the public
welfare; because you are the plucky
representatives of a political party
which, like old Rough aud Ready in
Mexico, don't seem to know that
you have been whipped, but keep on
fighting; we welcome you as citi
zens of our great commonwealth,
and as the guests of our unsubdued
opponents, the Hickory Democracy
of old Platte. May your brief
sojourn be pleasant.
