Wo have not had an opportunity to interview him. He is reported as somewhat "under the weather."

He is, perhaps, one of the most robust men in Platte coun ty, and a few years ago be weighed only a hundred and fifty pounds, and in traveling on the cars was compell ed to stop and rest every alternate day. For appropriate and useful pres ents go to L- Kramer's New- York Cheap Cash Store. Professor McGiuitio thinks it would bo advisable to have side walks constructed within two or three squares of the school-houses of the city, 60 that a reasonable portiou of the mud which clings to shoes in moist weather, will be. deposited outside of the school-rooms. Not a bad enggestion. G. A. Kerr made a deposit of $2 Monday in tho Journal bank, for which we shall endeavor to give a full equivalent in local news. Mr. Kerr tells us that he has made from sorghum this season three thousand gallons of syrup, and all from cano grown iu the immediate neighbor hood of Metz, this county. Donayin's Original Tennessec ans gave an entertainment at the Opera House Wednesday evening and were greeted by a full house. All their music was excellent; their rendition of the old plantation songs was splendid, and received by the large audience, with rounds of ap plause. About two huudred of our cit izens were present at the Packing House Monday afternoon as inter ested spectators of the first 'killing.' Next week we wish to give tho full particulars, in a condensed form, of an enterprise which tho Jouhn-al believes marks a very important era in the history of Columbus. Rev. Ford of Kearney, delivered before the Woman's Temperance Association at the Congregational church Sabbath evening, a very able argument against the license system and in favor of an amendment of tho state constitution prohibiting the sale of intoxicating liquors altogeth er, except for medicinal and mechan ical purposes. Happening in at Justico Mil lett's office Saturday, wo woro con siderably amused by tho efforts of the proposed jurymen to get out of tho meshes of tho legal web. We didn't wait to see who slipped through. The jury is a serious affair to the business man who is called away from his work, but it is a very important part of the duty of good citizens to help iu the just execution of the laws. A Colfax county farmer stated to us on Friday last that our dealers were paying five cents a bushel more for corn than those of Schuyler, while hogs were selling here at $5.35 a hundred, and there at 15.10. Whatever the comparativo " prices may have been on Friday last, it cannot hut be admitted that a num ber of intelligent, Colfax county farmers havo been marketing here their hogs tho past week. The Columbus Fire Department ought to havo a substantial benefit from tho city. Their numbor is mostly composed of young men, who are not large property owners, and who literally (jive their time for the public benefit. Subject to call aud duty at any moment, day or night, their services should have that sub stantial, aud business-like recogni tion that they deserve. We hope an occasiou may soou offer to tender it. At a recent meeting of the city board of education some important changes were mado in the schools. The board decided in favor of a high school department which open ed Monday iu the old Congregation al church placing Prof. L.J. Cramer at its head. He is a most excellent teacher, and the school under his charge will flourish admirably. Mrs. Annie Coolidge, Miss Annie Gilbert and Miss Wood were chosen as ad ditional teachers. One night recently a fire was noticed alongside of Dr. Hoehen's barn, evidently just kindled, and, from all appearances, by an incen diary. It was very fortunac, for that evening at least, that a member of the household, with her compan ion, returned home late from a ball, and just in time to prevent what might have proved a fearful fire. In our opinion no punishment would be too severe for such a crime, be cause with the destruction of prop erty, thero is always a possibility of the loss of life. Mrs. F. J. Stetson gave one of her delightful entertainments at tho Congregational church Saturday evening, to a very appreciative au dience. She has rare ability as a dramatic reader, as is evidenced by the fact that her hearers retain thoir interest, from first to last, of a two hours entertainment. Considering that intellectual enjoyments are helnful of all that is good, this tal ented ladv. in tho exercise of herl genius, may well be congratulated upon the life of great usefulness that lies before her. S. C. Smith, Esq., reports land business lively the past week. Some I of the transactions at his office were the purchase of land in T. 19, R. 3 wcM, by Wm. Yates of Du Page county, III. ; land, in the same neigh borhood, by James Leggett of the same place ; in the samo neighbor hood, by Win. P. Gordon of Cban tauque county, New York; Lewis E. Jones, Jonathan Devore and L. C. Taylor of Milford, Iroquois coun ty, Illinois, each bought farms in Creston precinct, this county, while Chauncey L. Bailey of III., purchas ed in Butler county. J. C. Elliott was in the city several dayB last week. He haa re cently been in Chicago and St.Louis, preparing to establish himself in business at Omaha. A few years ago bo began in Columbus, on a small scale, and by hiB integrity, strict attention to business, and thorough knowledge of all the do-4 tails of his work, as well as his reasonable prices and accommodat ing spirit, he has flourished as a vine on a sunny slope. Wo commend him and his father, Jno. Elliott (who enters into partnership with him iu Omaha) to the good opinion of the citizens of Nebraska's metropolis. 1 The preliminary examination of Edmund Grant, charged with the murder of Richard Dress, on tho 3d inst. occupied last Friday, Saturday and part of Monday before Judge Higgins, and resulted in Grant's being held to bail iu the Bum of $600 for manslaughter, at the next term of tho District Court. Bail wasfur nished by his father. The court in timated in his decision that be found, as a matter of fact, that the crime resulted from a high degree of negligeuce iu the use of fire arms. The punishment for such offences is imprisonment in the penitentiary not more than ten years, nor lesB than one year. A GLANCE ABOUT TOWN. A Combination of Tina and Capital ProdBcen one of the 3loht Uxefal, Convenient, itad in the Near FntHre, Dent 1hj incr Enterprise in our City. A PleuMurc to IhhjmjcI, and well Worthy of Record. The past fall has developed so many public-spirited citizens, and so many far-reaching enterprises in our rapidly growing city, that we have hardly been able to keep pace with the march of improvement. We wore very forcibly reminded of this, as we dropped into Becher & Price's office yesterday, and inspected their new set of Abstract Books, now fully completed. The complete set consists of six, eight-quire, threo six-quire, and two four-quire volumes, manufactured of tho very heaviest and best quality of calendered paper to be procured, and very firmly as well as elegantly bound, and were manufactured ex pressly for the firm. Thoy are com pletely and elegantly written up and contain in their respective volumes, a full and accurate abstract of all deeds, mortgages, powers of attor ney, etc., etc., tiled or on record in tho clerk's office of this county, also a full and accurate abstract of tho District Court, and tho Probate aud County Court records of this county. Our attention was particularly at tracted to an Index Book and a ref erence Book, which readily and con veniently give a perfect synopsis of all deeds. The value of this work is simply inestimable, In more phases than one. If any accident should befall our county or court records they would be as standard authority as the orig inal record itself. If we are pur chasing or selling property, we can quickly and easily obtain an authen tic record of title, right here in the business center of the city, without a mile or less journoy to the court house, aud you can drop in at any time, early in tho morning, at noon, or in tho evening, they are always there. We predict for this energetic firm a thousand-fold return for thoir iuvesttnent. We can hardly close without a fow words of commenda tion of the clerical work which was performod entirely by Will. E. Rob inson, Esq., of Greenville, III., a gen tleman of large experienco in this branch of business. Mr. Robinson commenced this work on tho morn ing of (he 12th of May last, and bas labored almost incessantly up to the present timo. Ho is an expert pen mau, as bis work amply testifies, and probably has fow equals in Abstract work. We only"' marvel that he has accomplished so much in so short a timo. Will, has made hosts of friends during hiB stay among us, who will regret his departure to the land of "Suckers." Wo say to all our readers, a simple inspection will more than verify what we havo here chronicled, and which wo could profitably enlarge upon, if our space would justify. First Quality OoodMOnly !

Editor of the Times:! have been watching the correspondence in your paper for the past few weeks with much interest. Having been in the practice of medicine for many years, I have learned to have no confidence in tho many proprietary medicines which are on the market aud it was through the excellent recommenda tion given by Dr. Bates, and the knowledge I had of his veracity aud ability as a physician that over led me to lay aside my long existing prejudice, to try.the only wonderful remedy, named Kendall's Spavin Cure which I find so many of your readers havo also found to be so valuable. Rheumatism has afflicted me for years, and with all the skill I have professed to have in treating others I found myself unable to do anything to euro myself entirely. After suffering for years tho difficul ty became located in my hip and nothing that I could do seemed af fect it until I began to use Kendall's Spavin Cure, which has cured mo completely. In all my experience as a physician I have never been able to make any compound which penetrates so thoroughly and wprks so admirably in removing old stand ing ailments, and at the same time hardly produce any irritation of the skin. It has done such wonders with me that I have tho utmost con fidence in its efficacy, and can rec ommend it with the confidence that the proprietors do not claim too much for it. Respectfully, J. R Porter, M.D. . Scranton, Pa., Sept.24, '81. .I. Of all institutions, the newspa per must livo nearest the people, in their wants and purposes. It must, with more or less accuracy and earnestness, record these wantB and further, these purposes, or cease to exist as a social force. The papers that ride hobbies and those that are organs of a cliquo are comparatively short-lived and feeble, because tho central idea of their existence Is not in unison with tho community in which they try to live. During old slavery times a newspaper proprie tor of New York was threatened with the loss of the patronage or' the South if ho didn't recant his anti slavery sentiments. This was tlio't by his interviewers to be a very strong "argument," but his reply was so quick, crisp, truthful, crush ing and surprising to tho haughty and insolent southrons that it has become memorable: "Take away your patronage aa quick as you like. Wo get more money for tho adver tisemonts of the chamber maids of Now York City than from all the slave states put together." A Pleasant Gathering:. On Saturday evening, December 10th, a pleasant, sociable time was enjoyed at the residence of Mr. JJ E. North on 14th street. The mem bers of the Coruot Band had been invited thore aud at about ten o'clock woro asked to -take seats in tho spacious dining - room' before a tablo well laden with all the good and substantial, things that this market affords. After doing the excollcnt supper ample justice, tho party again took seats In the parlor whero they enjoyed two selections of music with piano accompaniment from Miss Rose North,who rendered them in her usual, artistic manner; also ono from O. C. Shannon of the Band, and ono from L. H. North, entitled "Grandfather Ben," which more than pleased the party. At a late hour tho membors of the Band took leave, voting thanks to J. E. North and family for their hos pitality. City Council. At their meeting last week, cros sings were ordered across the tracks of the A. & N. and the U. P., on 'A' st., west of the Packing House. An ordinauce was introduced, vacating a strip on the south side of twelfth st., for the use of the TJ. P. It is understood that this is nec essary for the company, to make connection with the new track of tho Branch road, past Martin Hointz's place. Henry Luers having proposed to furnish tho city with the now com bination drive-well, and guarautee sufficient water-supply,for$100 each, two wells woro ordered, one for the square at the Lindell House, the other at Hayes's square, ou Olive street. m Mr. Spencer of Butler county has mado during the season twelve hundred and twenty-five gallons of sorghum syrup, and of a good qual ity, too, as we can testify. He has had no trouble in selling what bo has made, and could readily dispose of threo times as much at fifty cents a gallon. He has no doubt that a good quality of sugar can be made from the syrup, and is now experi menting with some in a way that promises success. If this can be done as readily and cheaply as Mr. Spencer's process implies, Nebraska farmers need seek no further for their "sweetening," as sorghum can bo raised hero as cheap as corn can, of excellent quality, and in surpris ing quantity. Mr. Spencer tells us that he has known ten barrels of syrup as tho product of one acre. . Letter JLlNt.
