The old Buckeye state looks natural; the grain crop is not so large as had been expected, but John says he never saw such a crop of grass; the fruit will be scarce. Parts of Ohio are suffering from drouth. Rev. E. L. Sherman has receiv ed a call to the pastorate of the Congregational Church at Harlan, Iowa. He expects to take his de parture from Us this week, visiting awhile at Omaha, going thence to his new Iowa home. He is an able minister, and this commuuity will feel his loss. W. S.

Lat Saturday morning an east bound cattle train on the Union Pa cific ran off the track three mile east of Chapman' station, ditching teu cars, killing about forty head of cattle, and injuring quite a number. The cause of the accident could not be ascertained. None of the train men were injured. The track wa cleared in a few hour and the road ready for busiuess. Calling names cau never take the place of argument, with an in telligent community. Any who wish to debate matters of public iuterest are welcome to the use of our columns, which are dedicated to the exchange of opinions, but low personalities should never be in dulged in, aud this has become so fixed a custom with the Journal that we are not annoyed by the re ception of such articles. "Wildey Lodge I. O. O. F. will have their railroad excursion aud basket pic-nic, Friday, August 2Gth, starting from here so as to arrive M Mil ford between 9 and 10 a. m., starting back at 5 two aud a half hours on the road, and only $1 for the rouud trip. David City friends can go from therefor the same price. Among the enjoyments of the day will be boating, fishing, bathing, croquet, &c. There is not a better place in the state, and those who go may expect to have a very enjoyable time. Tickets will be on sale by every member of the Lodge, so that there will be no rush for them on the morning of departure. The civil suit which was about to be instituted by Mr. Scharner against Rev. Hullhorst for alleged mal-practice in a very delicate case of surgery in his family, was com promised Monday by Mr. Hullhorst agreeing to pay Mr. Scharner $550. Under the law passed last winter, Mr. Hullhorst had no right (so we are credibly informed having no diploma, and not a sufficient prac tical experience) to attempt to prac tice either medicine or surgery, and this affair will probably cost him much more than he has realized from his practice. As there are scores of others practicing medicine in the state who are in a similar attitude toward the law, it may be well for them to make a note of this case. Mr. Berry, who sometime since sold his farm iu Booue county, and went to Missouri, pissed through the city Monday on his way to Holt county, there to live and die, both he and bis wife. Land that sells here for six to eight dollars, is held iu Missouri at f40 to $75; while there is an abundance of cheap land, thousands and thousand of acres which can be bought for 15 cents an acre, it is not fit to live upon, owing to the stones, sand, brush and ague, the last of which enumeration of evils is by all odds the worst. Mr. Berry liked southern Kansas no better than Missouri. He has lost some money by his move, but he has gained very valuable informa tion, which he expects to utilize out ot Nebraska climate, soil and stock. "We are in receipt of a copy of the Glenwood (la.,) Journal, con taining a three column account of the golden weddingof Mr. aud Mrs. Wm. "Wheeler, parents of Mrs. U P. Coolidge of this place.

Her iudden departure is a sad blow to husband, children, relatives and frnnJs, but they can always dwell ujdd the comforting thought that she was a kind Christian wife and niotaer, which will ever keep her meiury green and bright with hiisbaud, children aud friend?. Another Bridge ."Heel tag. Thursday evening last another meeting wi held at Town Hall, to take further action, if necessary, toward tie early repairing and completioc of the Loup Fork and Platte rive: bridges, Col. John Rick ly iu the clnir. The conniittee appointed at a previous metiug presented quite a lengthy and interesting report,which was, on motion of J. E. North, adopted, and the following named gentlemen were added to the com mittee with instructions to wait upon the Board of Couuty Commis sioners and pes the matter of an immediate letting of contract for repairing the Platte river bridge, as the necessary funds are now availa ble for that purpose: J. P. Becker, John Hammond, L. Gerrard, Jacob Ernst, E. D. Sheehau, D. Schupbacb, R. U. Henry, R. Stewart, and Guy C. Barnnm. On motion, tbe secretary was in structed notify the above committee of their appoiutnent. On motion, the meeting adjourn ed to meet at call of the chairman. D. Anderson, Sec'y. The Loap Bridge. Saturday noon there were yet four piles to drive to complete the sub structure ready for the cerpenters to lay the plank for the floor of the bridge. All the plank had not been received, but it was expected that the piles would be driven by Mon day evening, and that to-day ("Wed nesday) would see the bridge so far completed as to allow of the cross ing of teams in safety. The new part of the structure is considerably lower than the old, but the connection has been made by an easy grade. For safety, a railing is being placed on both sides. The flooring is of cottonwood plank, which we believe will be more durable than pine, though not so smooth. The contract for driving the piles was let on the 30th of April, to be completed by the 30th of June sixty days. There were 140 piles to be driven. Work was begun Junelst. The Journal thinks that the bus iness men of Columbus, and the farmers south of the Loup (who are the parties most interested), have been exceedingly patient at the delay in the completion of the bridge. We believe that Mr. Rob inson, the contractor, is a well-meaning man, but, at present, the com munity do, and until better advised, will believe that this work might 1 have been completed a great deal sooner. Jos. Gardner sends us a nice sample of English bide oats raised on his place. By the way, if any farmer has what he regards aa an extra good kind of grain or veg etable, we would like to make the fact knowu through the columns of the Journal, so that farmers may become posted in what others are doing. You know that emulation is one of the powerful levers that move the world of thought and en deavor. If your neighbor can raise seventy to one hundred bushels of corn to the acre, you want to find how it is done; you may excel him in some other line, and thus ex chaugc benefits with him. Some man may have taken pains and a little money, and prepared a nice milk-hou-e, with water fresh from t .. . . ,, ,i i ;. ,, iue wen running turuuu ii luubi ut the day, while the wind-mill is pumping for stock, and by this means making it possible for the good wife and daughters to keep milk, cream aud butter sweet, and thus command the highest price tor dairy products. His neighbors and other, knowing exactly how these things are done, will not rest easy until they have as good. And so it goes with the ten thousand things that make up our life, whether they be the mere physical necessities and comforts, or the higher intellectual enjoyments and benefits. Let us emulate. Let us improve by em ulating our neighbors, friends and acquaintances in those good qual ities which make them better men and women. So, don't be backward in coming forward with accounts of all you have that is excellent, and how it became so. City Affairs. Editor Journal : Since the mat ter of refunding bonds, as I am cred ibly informed, is not likely to come before the city council or people very soon, it is perhaps not worth the while to occupy any more space in pnblic print in discussing the ex pediency of the project, further than to answer the statements in last week's Journal about the cost of revising ordinances, and concerning the city debt, coming trom a coun cilman whose judgment is entitled to consideration. But with due de ference to the gentleman's opinion, while it i admitted that no more can be paid under the published notice of the aunual appropriation bill than $150.00 for printing ordi nances during the current fiscal year, which began on May 3d, 1381, it was stated to me by the party above referred to that the printing of the city charter and ordinances would probably cost $100 00, and I had learned before from two other city officials that there would be an expense pertaining thereto of $100 00 aside from printing. That was the reason for making the assertion, that such work would cost the city $200.00. This statemeut was made iu connection with the subject of official salaries, as directly pertinent to the funding question, without any intent to reflect on any one, not withstanding that the course of in discreet parties has been the cause ot creating a suspicion of crooked ness somewhere. As to the other proposition rela tive to the city debt, no attempt was made to state thu exact figures. From the late delinquent city tax list prepared under direction of Treasurer Early, it appears that the amount of delinquent city taxe, real and personal, from 1S73 to 1S79, inclusive, is $3,CC5.97, which, added to the amount of outstanding war rants on the levies of 1SS0 aud 1S31, less the money ou hand, would show about the state of the city's indebt edness, excluding those claims which have not yet been audited. Mr. Early states, that about one third only of such delinquent taxes are collectable. The council, by its finance com mittee, have arranged to meet him the present week, who, with the assistance of the city attorney, are expected to adopt such measures as will insure the speedy collection of such taxes. With the showing made, and the city's resources it will be observed that if we never have any larger debt on us than the one at present, by fair economy on behalf of our corporate authorities, no refunding bonds can possibly become necessary to carry the city along. The gentleman further states, in effect, that there would likely be more satisfaction on the part of citi zens with the Council's proceedings if its meetings were more largely attended. The timber on the square about the Town Hall, as well as the hot weather, have doubtless kept some away, but a better plan is sug gested in publishing such proceed ings in some local paper, so that the public may know what the city fathers are doing. They are public servants, and it is proper for us to ask that their transactions, as such, be communicated to us through the press. Spectas tt tu spectabere. Byron Millett. Weather Report.
