A literary society was organized there last Friday evening, and the first question for discussion is actu ally to be "Is the moon made of green cheese?" A meeting of citizens iu favor of the formation of a public library association will be held at the school house of Dint, No. (!, of Platte county on Saturday, December lit h, at 2 p. m. All persons friendly to the above object are invited to attend. ForSalk. A dwelling-house and lot iu a very desirable part of the city. Will be sold at a sacrifice, as the money is needed.

He brought back with him a sample of eight-row corn from S. 1). Avery's that we believe would he an excellent thing for farmers to raise. It is not like the common King Philip corn, but has a much larger kernel. Fred. Coan, whilo cleaning a job-press at the Urn oflice Thursday last had the fingers of his right hand caught iu the machinery, aud con siderably mashed. It was thought at 'first that amputation would be necessary, but it is hoped that some of them at least may be saved. Anti-prohibitionists believe that there will be an effort made to so cure the passage of a prohibitory law by the legislature; some of the other party claim that they will en deavor to secure the submission of the question to a vote of the people iu the form of an amendment to the constitution. At the anti-prohibitory meeting Monday evening, J. E. North pre sided, and a committee consisting of C. A. Spcicc, Ii. H. Henry, J. P. Becker, J. G. Higgins aud G. V. Hines was appointed to prepare a remonstrance against the prohibitory movement, to be presented ala meet ing next Saturday evening. The fire in our neighboring town, DaviirCity on the morning of the 3d inst., did considerable dam age, consuming nearly .$7,000 worth of property. It is thought the fire originated from the stove in the hack part of the furniture store building. Peebles, Pepper, Itell and Leonard were also losers by the fire. The literary correspondent who wants pay for a contribution should prepare manuscript reasonably good iu orthography at least free from such glaring inaccuracies as "coin Only," "inelial," "alow," &c An editor's time is worth something, and no one ought to interlerc with his prerogative of spelling at ran dom. At Fremont the city authorities interested themselves iu preventing the spread of that fearful disease, scarlet fever, aud now after three weeks, it is said to be nearly stamp ed out. It is a very contagious dis ease, may be carried in the clothes, many physicians fear it more than they do small-pox. Parents should take every precaution to save their little ones. John McMahou recently did a piece of nice detective work. S. D. Finch, alias J. O. Grout, absconded from Aldcn, la., with about $1200 ot somebody ele's money, and, it was supposed, came to Nebraska. John had a postal card giving particulars, and was on the lookout; fiually, he had a slight clue, and by a little in quiry and some personal inspection he found his man under a different name on a homestead west of Oak dale. He was playing honest gran ger. Of course John put him ou the right road, and he will probably go where he belongs-outside the pales of civilized society, and within the walls ot a penitentiary. Geo. Itanium says that the Col orado Central, from near Julesburg to near Evans, runs through a good country right along the Platte river. Wild game of all kinds is abundant, and iu warm weather the dreams of the citizens are enlivened by the movements of the rattle snake iu their beds. Geo. thinks our country here is much ahead of Colorado for the stock raiser. Just now there arc a considerable number of sheep and cattle dying there- because of the snow and extreme cold and hick of protection aud feed. It is expect ed that the It. & M. will push their Republican Valley road westward next season. A Inng;trou. Aii'miiicc. A gentleman who lives ou Shell Creel; tells us that there arc numer ous instances within his knowledge of men throwing the carcasses of animals into Shell Creek and this, too, of those that have died of dis ease such as black leg and hog chol era. If Shell creek was a stream used only for agricultural and man ufacturing purposes, this practice would not be especially injurious, but, on nearly all farms along its margin, the cattle, horses, hogs aud sheep are accustomed to get their daily supply ol water, and it is very important that that supply should he kept as pure a well-nieining, intel ligent and decent people can keep it. From time immemorial the pol lution of the waters has been regard ed as one ol the meanest aud most reprehensible of crimes, and if there are any men in this county who Irive no respect for the rights of their neighbors, and ihe welfare of the community iu this regard, they ought to be made to feel the full force of the penalty which the law attaches to their conduct. A (iSoimI 'riling. John Harris has invented a ma chine for rope-making that promises to be a grand success. S. T. Hill is preparing a neat model to show the beauty of the invention. It takes the strands, twists aud stretches them, and winds the rope on a spool ready for the market. The machine, for use, will :ot about 2fi5. and its capacity is estimated by Mr. Harris at a ton a day, $200 worth of rope, at wholesale rates. He estimates Ihe entire cost of building and other machinery necessary to carry on the. business would he $3,000. and is de sirous of forming a company here. There is a wonderful amount of rope used iu Ibis country. There is also a large quantity of flax straw that is now going to waste, that could be utilized. The culture of flax is already profitable for the seed alone, and it an enterprise of this kind could be put ou foot here, we would not only have better ropes than we now have, but the growth ol flax would become a money making business. Mr. Harris is a practical rope maker of many years experi ence, is evidently an honest man, aud we hope he may succeed iu securing stockholders enough to make his project a success. CoIuiiiImih liar ANxo:isitinn. The organization of this society was completed last Friday evening at a meeting of the lawyers at the otfice of W. S. Geer, Enq. . The object of this organization is to maintain among its members a high klaudard of professional integ rity among the members of the bar generally; to encourage a thorough and liberal education, Ihe acquisi tion of a law library, and the due administration of Justice to all classes of society without distinc tion. Certainly no higher or more ex alted purpose could be desired. The law of professional deportment and etiquette was declared to be the rule of action of every member. AVe are satisfied that the Columbus I:ir As sociation is second to none iu central Nebraska, aud that it may justly lay claim to legal talent aud ability equal to any county bar association in the State. The charier members arc as follows: Chas. A. Speice, M. Whitmoyer, W. S. (Jeer, Lcander Gerrard, A. M. Po?t, John G. Hig gins, George G. Itowmau, M. K. Turner, Ityrou Millett, Messrs. Cor nelius & Sullivan, Stephen McAllis ter and II. G. Carew. The first annual meeting will be held ou the second Tuesday of next month at the law otfice of Messrs. Whitmoyer, Gerrard & Post. Mr. Speice was elected temporary Pres ident and Geo. G. Bowman tempo rary Secretary aud Treasurer. iev man's (riv. Ep. Journal: Owing to the coa famine we were almost frozen out last week, but Old Sol has come round again aud thawed our .ink, hence this epistle. Ed. Carroll, a young man living about four miles north from here, accidental) shot himself through the left leg Saturday night while care lessly hand ling. a revolver. Mrs. Machalski, two miles east, gave birth lo a fine pair of twins Friday night ; all doing well ; hoys. Farm work is about over for the winter. Our citizens assembled en masse last night in the school house and were treated to a finetilciopticau exhibition by two youug men from the east. It was well appreciated, as we have had uo amusement for some time. Yours, H. E. Ward. Itntlcr County. As intimations of what our Slatr needs in legislation can do no harm. I would suggest that one of our greatest needs at the present time is railroad legislation. While we be lieve in strict justice, "and will not grumble if more is conceded to them,'' we do not certainly believe it proper that the industries of Ne braska should bear the euonnors and cruel rates on freight and travel, at the present time levied. As railroads increase iu the differ ent counties and bonds arc cheer fully voted, iu anticipation of com peting lines, so do tho rates on our railroads increase, and those who so emphatically dreamed of cheapci rales, by competing lines, waked up to find them pooled. Freight rates are higher now in this county than ever, and we believe they also are iu Platte, and it seems to us thai if the people of Nebraska do not soon wake up lo the emer gency of the case, and by legislation compel a stoppage of the cruel ex tortion as practiced by our railroads they had better quit fanning, and let the Slate again become "the desert," as of old. No industry can possibly bear, and assuredly farming cannot, the rates taken by these public carriers And, Mr. Turner, we do sincere!) hope that you and your co-laborers in the coming legislature at Lincoln, will receive such loads of petitions, from every school -district ; and without respect to parlies that will compel a respectful hearing, and the framing of a constitutional and just law on tills matter, just to the peo ple of Nebraska, and also just to the railroads. Improvements are still being made al Kising City, but our pres ent communication is loo long to particularize. Our paper (the Inde pendent) is well liked, and we be lieve Mr. Verity, Ihe editor, will be pecuniarily appreciated in W.st I'.ntler. VnvNor:j Humphrey Item. En. Journal: A communication appeared iu your paper some weeks ago, describing to some extent this busy little burg; since that time, quite a number ot additions have been made, among them a large store hy Messrs. Ripp & Fuelis, a brick blacksmith shop, and a bar room and hail by Louis Schroeder. 'Lou)" being a fiddler, himself, the "light laulastic" will he swung now for all that's out. We are informed that our friend, Nels Peterson, Esq., sold 200 busli of wheat to Hipp, tho dealer, at 80 cl., or the rise ol the market. A good contract. The literary society which has been conducted so successfully al the Mc Alpine school-house for the past three winters is about to begin its labors again. We wish them a pleasant time. The Catholic church, erected chiefly by the Polaudcrs iu this vicinity, is approaching completion. It will cost .$300. Some of our citizens attended the panorama aud dance given at the Fields house at Platte Centre, by Messrs. Maughau and Leisenring, on Thanksgiving evening, and re port a splendid lime. The school indistrict.il closed on the 23d. In the afternoon some of the patrons and friends visited the school to listen to the " patriots" perform, and after tho presentation of reward cards and so on, the friends and pupils went to their re spective horneo,all agreeing that the afternoou was most pleasantly spent and voting a repetition of the same. So says Victor, although by no means Victor IIu;o. ICailroad I.oilation. Editor Journal: In your issue of December 1st, under the heading "Railroad Oppression," yon repub lish a communication signed "Citi zen," taken from the Butler County Press, which I think goes right to the mark. If the legislature this winter shall fail to relieve the people from this oppression, I venture the predic tion that, the one which will assem ble in 18S3 will he not quite so solid republican as the present one. I desire to call atteulion to the fact that a convention of farmers and shippers has been called to meet at Lincoln January 5th, 1881, for the purpose of organizing the "Nebraska State Farmers' Alliance," and for the further purpose of impressing on the legislators the necessity for im mediate relief from railroad oppres sion. All Granges, Farmers Clubs, Farmers' Alliances and kindred as sociations are invited to send dele gates. Platte county has several Granges and Farmers' Clubs. Do they pro pose to ho represented? I hope so. Platte county ought to be represent ed. It certainly has had its share of radiuad oppression. Yours, Dec. 3, ISS0. Paiia.va Hoska. IN' for .Nule.
