Monday among the business houses didn't look much like the day before New Year's generally does it was too severely cold for people to be out, except under the pressure of 6trong necessity. Elmer Sheets has been spending the Holidays among friends here. He is engaged in teaching the largest school he has ever bad charge of, fifty-five pupils, Coates's district, nine miles northeast of Schuyler. Diphtheria is reported as preva lent at St. Bernard, by a correspond ent of the Democrat. Mr. Bammacher lost two children; Mr. Adams one; Mr. Panly one; F. Smith one. It is i9 in six families now, in the neigh borhood. D. Anderson sold last week two car loads of bogs that were shipped to Leadville. These hogs after being unloaded right in the heart of the great Rockies, will be driven some 40 or 50 miles towards the Gnnnison mining region. Miss Constance Stanley, the beau tiful young actress that is the bright, particular star of the Edwin Clifford combination was raised in Columbus, Ohio, and is remembered in childhood by many citizens of this place, former rusidants of that city. P i The State agent for the Raymond patent flying machine, baby-jumper, and swing has 'on exhibition and Bale this complete combination at the store of A. & M. Turner. Come all and see the baby's delight, the mother's joy, and the father's pride. 1 ' The editor was laid up two days Uat week, during one of which it Beemed as though the elements of his corporosity were fighting for entire freedom from mortal restraint. "Cha os come again," would express the feeling about as exactly as language could measure it. Gus. G. Becher & Co. have an immense number of fine calendars for 1884 for free distribution. Call and get what yon need, and it wonld be well enough to renew your insur ance, or insure anything that may not bo covered by a first-class indemnity against loss by fire. Mr. A. Henrich informs us that he will have another long time sale of young horses, cows, and higbgraded young bulls, etc. in February. His last year's prices were the lowest of the season, some men would not part with what they bought there for three times the amount they paid for it. Seward is agitating the question of a new railroad from that point to tap the U. P., and thus give them a competing line. In the light of past experience that the Seward people ha7e had with competing roads, it is safe to surmise that they will be a lit tle charry about staking much on any new venture of that kind. Abont three days of last week would approximate the average win ter weather, and reminds us that we are really in the heart of that season, and so far have been blessed with an exceptionally mild, beautiful winter. We believe the lowest temperature iudicated by the thermometer waB about twelve degrees below zero. Mr. Small's phantom dance at the Opera House Monday night was a success, notwithstanding the weather. At midnight the tableau represented the old year personified by W. W. Damron, the new year by Miss Mamie Phillips. The lady floor managers after twelve o'clock were Miss Ida M. Small and Miss Phoebe Phillips. The following item of personal news, relating to a former respected citizen of Columbus we clip from the Schuyler Sun: "Rev. J. A. Hood's father was 92 years old on Christmas day of this week, and his mother will be 86 years old New Year's day of next week. The Reverend thinks he has one more reason to celebrate Chrintmaa and New Year's than oth ers have." The fact that there has been alto gether too much drunkenness and disorderly conduct exhibited on our streets the past week, especially about Christmas time, for the credit of the city and its officials must have been observed by all who happened to be out after nightfall. We cannot but think that a more rigid enforce ment of the city ordinance relative to this matter would be proper and meet the approval of all good citizens. The Schuyler Herald's corres pondent from our neighbor Richland says there is much agitation there over voting bonds to build a bridge across the Platte river, between that point and Beilwood, Butler county. From the same source we learn that Mr. and Mrs. Dan Condon have re turned from a visit to the mountains ; also that Mr. Isaac Eckelberry and family will soon leaye the state to make their future home in Colorado. The old fashioned three-day-blizzard won't work any more in this climate. The storm of last Wednes day was fairly inaugurated and for a few hours made the snow fly in a style to remind the old settler forcibly of early days in Nebraska, but in a few hours it bad lost its grip, as it were, and with the going down of the sun the storm had passed, to be fol lowed in a few hours by clear 6kies and bright, beautiful winter weather. We can scarcely take up a Chicago or Omaha paper but we see the an nouncement that Dave Anderson is in their city with a few car loads of cat tle or hogs. We suppose it is the same with the Denver and St Louis papers. Yet we seldom miss'David from our streets. How is it Dave? Do you daplicate yourself? How many of yon are there anyhow? Democrat. Columbus's D. Anderson will come as near duplicating himself in active business pursuits as any man in Ne braska. He can perform more, labor, transact more business and travel over more territory in a day, week, month or year, by the stop-watch than either I or both the editors of the Democrat. We notify each subscriber, every week, of just bow his account stands for subscription. If you wish the paper sent yon no later than the date printed opposite your name, please drop us a postal card so stating. tf On Christmas evening, at their ball in this city, the Columbus Maen nerchor held one of their private social musical entertainments for the benefit of the members of the society, their wives and friends, which la re ported as the most enjoyable occasion of the kind that has been held since the society was organized, which speaks volumes for the entertainment, for they certainly know bow to enjoy themselves and make their entertain ments a grand success always. After music and other amusements of the evening, dancing followed. During the evening, the leader, Mr. E. Pohl, was presented a beautiful gold headed cane, a gift from the society. We have had some pretty good literature from school-district No. 8 this county on both sides, so to speak. We don't know the heart of the troubles in that district. We are inclined to think that after all there is nothing so very serious. There gen erally should be some topic adequate to elicit lively discussion, and whether it be the relative value of dances, merry-makings, singings, social gath erings and the like, on the one hand, and revival meetings, debates on mooted doctrines of theology and the serious contemplation of death and judgment on the other, the Journal will be pleased to record any good natured discussion of such a general nature as to be interesting to readers outside of that district. Wfrereaboats Wasted. The friends of Thos. Troiba or Try ba desire to know where he is. The last they know of him, he had been working as a herder on 4 P Ranche, near Laramie, Wy. They have re ceived two letters directed to him at Columbus, Neb., seemingly from a comrade on the Ranche, indicating that Thomas had left there. He is 22 years old, abont 5 feet 8 inches high, blue eyes, no beard. Any informa tion will be very thankfully received. Address Andrew Troiba, Columbus, Neb. State papers please copy. Happy New Year! The heart of a business man natu rally warms towards his customers, those who favor him with a portion of their patronage. This comes from the idea of human fellowship, and grows so strong with men in business that it becomes a habit with them to consider the needs of their customers and adapt their methods of business to suit. This we think has been the secret of the great success in business here of J. B. Delsman, whose store on 11th street is nearly always crowded with customers, buying or bartering, customers who continue to deal with him year after year. As these added years go by, and all are mutually prosperous together, Mr. Delsman feels like thanking his numerous pat rons for the favors of the past, and asking a continuance through the new year, which he hopes will be a happy and prosperous one to all of bis cus tomers. The Week of Prayer. The week of prayer this winter will begin Monday, Jan. 7th. Union ser vices will bo held in the churches in the city at 7:30 p. m., in the following order, adopting the topics furnished to the world by the Evangelical Al liance. Monday, Presbyterian church, topic, "Praise aud Thanksgiving ;" Tuesday, Congregational church, topic, "Tem perance ;" Wednesday, Methodist church, "Prayer for Families and In structors of Youth ;'' Thursday, Bap tist church, "Prayer for the Church of Christ ;" Friday, Presbyterian church, "Intercession for the Nations ;" Sat urday, Congregational church, "Pray er for Missions at Home and Abroad." The citizens of Columbus and vi cinity are cordially invited to attend and assist in these meetings. J. Q. A. Fleharty, J. C. Rush, J. W. Little. Hampkrey. Winter! Mr. Frank Brookhouse, carpenter, is putting up a building 16x18 for Dr. Hampton, which the Dr. intends to use as an office. Mrs. Pat Condon has been qnile seriously ill for about three weeks; we are glad to annonnce that she is recovering. We saw Pat's friendly face in town on Saturday ; he is "one of the boys" when out and hopes his wife will soon be able to allow him to come to town as nsnal to attend to bis own errands instead of having to call upon his neighbors. The Union Sabbath school held its Christmas tree on Christmas eve at the school boose the largest assem blage of people ever seen by yonr correspondent in this house was there congregated, all space available for standing room was occupied. Every thing passed off pleasantly and many a heart went home glad that night that Kris Kingle remembered our little Sabbath school. We are now in position to do a thriving business again. Our little burg has been 6adly overlooked dur ing the fall and up to now by the R. R. Co., but to make amends it now allows our grain and produce dealers Columbus rates on freights, so that they can pay Columbus prices. All the fall farmers have been hanling their produce to Columbus and Platte Center which they would have brongbt here only for the high freights farmers getting high prices elsewhere ; this will now be changed and we expect to see all oor old patrons and new ones also disposing of their crops here at better prices than they have been getting else where. C. A YOUNG SOLDIER Cvafeaei ite Eteaa wealtl Afet Kill. There came before the examining board at its session In Columbus this week a man who was a young sol dier in a Michigan regiment during the late war. His case is an excep tional one. Twenty years ago the battle of Get tysburg was fooght. Among the many regiments and brigades that fooght in that memora ble battle and others that followed it to the close of the late war and the surrender of Lee at Appomatax, was the Fifth Michigan cavalry in the old First cavalry brigade. That regiment was one of the foor that formed the brigade with which Gen. Caster earn ed his repntation as a hard and dash ing cavalry fighter. It was the first in the United States army that fooght with Spencer repeating rifles. In its ranks was one bamuel K. Yanderkarr, a beardless yonth who was more conspicuous for his attenu ated form than for bis personal at tractiveness. He was six feet, two inches high when standing without boots and weighed only 145 to 150 pounds. In appearance he was a frail, slen der boy whose physique was the very opposito of that chosen for a hardy soldier. The second day after the close of the battle of Gettysburg, where the regiment lost heavily in killed and wounded, thu Fifth Michigan were pressing the columns of Lee's army, and by attacking the enemy sharply brought on an engagement at Smiths burg, Md. Skirmishers were deployed dis mounted, and advanced on the enemy through a piece of timber to an open field. The volleys of musketry came thick and fast, and men were falling along all parts of the line. A sergeant had just fallen mortally wounded by Vanderkarr's side, and died where be fell. 'A soldier also bad jut fallen near him, pierced through the breast with a ball, while mauy were wound ed less severely aud were being help ed from the line. Among the last who fell was Yan derkarr. A 44 calibre musket ball struck him in the left breast, and passed through the lung and lodged in the muscle near the spine. The surgeons of most regiments had all they could do to care for the thousands who were wounded at Get tysburg during the two days of that terrible slaughter. The Fifth Michigan bad no surgeon to attend their wounded at Smiths burg. Two soldiers were ordered to take Yanderkarr to the rear, and as soon as time wonld allow, his com manding officer rode back to examine him. Cutting the coarse army shirt from the soldier's back the young officer, who had not reached h is 21st year, found that the ball bad passed through the lung and lodged in the muscle near the spine where it bad made a bad contusion through which the blood had ceased to circulate. It was a hot July day aud the muscle in which the ball lodged was so swollen that it was seen the ball should be re moved at once. Time was precious, for the regiment to which the soldier belonged most "mount" and follow op Lee's retreating columns. The officer referred to having learn ed enough of anatomy during his school-boy days to assure him it wonld be safe to cut for the ball, re solved to do so at once. Learning that a country doctor lived near by, an orderly was dispatched for him, and the two amateur surgeons at once placed the soldier on his face, and then and there, with rude instruments of torture without an anaesthetic or stimulant to administer to the wound ed boy, they cut the ball from the soldier back. The patient was still strong and re sisted vigorously, but two determined doctors were quite enough to carve even the stoutest soldier when held with face downward. Time was an object, however, and the incision was made long and deep; the ball was soon found and taken from the back. Hemorrhage ceased from the month as the patient was placed on his back, for the new opening allowed the blood a more direct passage. The acting surgeons bad performed their part. The captain had placed the heavy ball in his pocket, when, calling a number of soldiers to the side of the rude bed on which their wounded comrade lay, with looks that betokened sorrow, all bid him "good-bye." They mounted and rode toward the front. As the horses galloped on the boy's courage during the day was spoken of, and all felt they would never see him again. Time passed on, the war continued and the officer who bad acted the part of a field surgeon, though wearing but bars then, was 60on made a col onel by Gen. Custer's recommenda tion and written request, on account of handling bis regiment so effectively when in command dnring the battles recently fought. That regiment continued to serve in the field during the war, following Generals Sheridan and Custer thro' all their campaigns. Yanderkarr was often spoken of by the colonel and the company officers, all agreeing that he certainly must have died. Eight months or more elapsed, when there appeared at the headquarters of the Fifth Michigan cavalry in the front, the soldier whom it was sup posed had died. Though he had but partially recovered, yet he was able to ride. When able to come out of the hospital, be bad earnestly protested against being transferred into the Invalid Corps, and insisted that he must be allowed to join bis regiment then serving under Gen's. Mead and Sheridan. On his return, the com manding officer of his regiment, who had assisted in taking the ball from his back, gave special orders to the officers of his company that Yander karr must not be required to lift sacks of grain or perform auy hard duty that would tax hiB strength, nor must he be required to do picket or guard doty. Io fact both his regimental and company officers protected him from the hardest duties of active field ser vice as his health demanded. Thongh relieved from many duties on the march and when in camp, yet "when preparing for action" one of the offi cers of the regiment states "Yander karr always took his place in the ranks." Whether it was in the dash ing cavalry charges against infantry, fighting from behind earthworks or against the enemy's artillery, by which Custer and bis cavalry brigade won their renown, or whether fighting dismounted as infantry, and charging rifle pits, "young Yanderkarr was found in the front." There was not a man in the regiment, we learn from good authority, who could fire more deliberately at all times when in action, nor with better effect than he. This young soldier for be was not yet seventeen, continued to bold his place with his regiment in the front dnring engagements, through nearly all the battles of Gen. Grant's cam paign through the Wilderness, until near its close, when he was fighting dlsmoonted and was again shot through the arm. He was taken to the hospital, bat when partially re covered from his second wound in sists that he most join his regiment again which was still servincr with Gen. Sheridan in the Army of the Shenandoah. He reaches his regi ment in the Shenandoah valley. His impaired health, shattered by two woonds, one of which wonld have killed most soldiers, caused the colo nel of his regiment to protect him from fall daty, remembering the bravery of the soldier which had been so conspicuously shown during all the engagements through which he had passed, the commanding officer of the regiment required bat little daty of him other than that which he most loved, a fair chance on all occasions to fight those who had twice wounded him. Again we find the young sol dier in the front, as Gen. Sheridan marches his Army of the Shenandoah across Virginia to join the Army of the Potomac, and to take part in breaking up the Confederacy. Yan derkarr is again using his carbine in the front and forces his wav to the extreme advance, when the enemy rash onto him, and made the yoong soldier their prisoner. He was taken to that filthy, verminous starving pen, which, should ever stand a shameful reproach to those who were responsi ble for it, called Libby Prisou. At the close of the war Yanderkarr was exchanged and returned to his home a disabled man for life. After the close of the war many officers with their commands were ordered west for service, among them being those of the Fifth Michigan. He had lost track of his old com mander soon after the war closed, and, drifting westward himself, settled in Butler county this state. He bad no idea whether the officer who bad tried experimental surgery on his person nineteen years before was yet living or dead. Sometime dnring the month of Feb ruary last he learned that the colonel of bis regiment was a grain dealer in the Queen City, built by the mountain side. He accordingly addressed a letter to Col. S. H. Hastings, of Den ver, asking an affidavit setting forth the facts of the field surgery practised on his person nineteen years before, and received an answer that the affi davit requested would be furnished as soon as time would allow. The chances are that Mr. Yander karr will now receive a more equita ble pension, based upon the justice of his case, after waiting sixteen years or more to perfect his claim. He now receives but two dollars per month. To afford the Denyer gentleman some consolation for his practice on the wounded soldier boy, we would say that the operation did not seem to check the growth of the youug wol verine, though when walking he now resembles the arc of a circle some what, being considerably curved, yet when he "braces up" and stands erect he in said to measure 6 feet 3 inches In height and balances at 180 pounds avoirdupois. Twice wounded, once left to die and afterwards a prisoner in the infamous Libby Prison, should entitle a good soldier to a better pension than two dollars per month. Shell Creek Ite: Mr. Mathew Farrel has finished a fine dwelling house. Mr. Rivet has completed his new dwelling house, and it is quite an im provement. Corn husking is mostly done. The average yield may be set down as about 35 to 40 bushels an acre. An old man near Platte Center, Obryan by name, who has been para lyzed for some time, died on Christ mas night. There was a febtival on Christmas eve at the Monroe Congregational church and an oyster supper at Mr. R. Wiley's bouse. Most of the hogs in this vicinity have gone to market and a little far ther by this time, viz: into the pork barrels and lard tierces, where all their hogish obstinacy ends. We hear of a tree festival to be held on New Year's evening at Burrows school house, and as the people in that neighborhood have the stuff that "makes the mare go," it will no doubt be a success. Several cases of sickness have oc curred in this neighborhood. Mr. David Thomas has been suffering from sore eyes for a long while but is on the mend now. In consequence of this he is back with his work, having quite a deal of corn unhusked yet. As this will be my last correspond ence of this year 1883, and will have to lay over till 1884, you will permit me, Mr. Editor to wish you and your whole editorial staff, aud all your typos down to the little printer's "devil," and all your numerous read ers a very happy New Year 1 The Sunday school folks at Platte Center bad a Christmas tree on Christmas day. The house was well filled and everybody behaved and en joyed themselves well. The presents for big and small wero quite numer ous. We only pitied poor Santa Clans in his big buffalo coat, in a close room". Mr. Martin Bloedorn at Humphrey has been very sick with lung fever, but was, at last report, over the dan ger. The old gentleman, Mr. Martin Bloedorn on Shell Creek, had a runa way the other day. Mr. B. keeps very good horses, in No. 1 order, and that is a very nice thing, but such spirited animals are not the teams for old men to drive in winter. X. Y. Z. District 44. Some may think too much is being said about 6eed corn, not so with me ; those living in this part of Platte county, who had their seed gathered and dried out prior to Nov. 11th are safe to plant, but those who have gathered their seed corn since that time should uot plant without being satisfied from a thorough examina tion or test of their seed ; the storm and freeze from Nov. 11th to 16th is when our corn in field was injured for seed. The past season has been an unfa vorable one for the farmer in this immediate vicinity ; owing to the se vere hail storm of July 13th there was only from one-fifth to one-half of a corn crop gathered, while np to that date the prospect was rather flatter ing ; it left the wheat to go from 5 to 8 bus. per acre, and oats not worth threshing. NotwithiUndisg the bad season, foe BA.RG-A.:nsrs IN- STOVES, HARDWARE & TINWARE, GO TO C. D. BAELOW'S, there have been some improvements in our neighborhood; the following persons havelbuilt new nooses, and otherwise improved their farms the past summer: Mr. Ingles, new house on sec. 1 ; Jo. Drinnin, new house on sec. 3; Mr. Griffin, one on sec. 4; Mr. Rossel, one on sec. 5; Mr. Blasser, one on sec. 9, and Mr. Picket, one on sec. 11, all in 17 north, and 1 east; besides just across the line north, Mr. McGill built one on sec. 32, Mr. Her ring, one on sec. 35, and the Gertach Bros., one near Shell creek ; there.are others who contemplate building early in the spring, of which we will make note in due time. Our school is pros pering with 30 scholars, and Wm. Gray, of Columbus, teacher. Mr.Gray has gained the good will of all the children, and they show a marked degree of improvement, which is cer tainly a credit to their teacher, but the old school house is much out of repair, twisted out of shape, aod cracked walls from being moved too much over the prairie9.
