He himself has been ill several days, his daughter Mabel is severely afflict ed with inflammatory rheumatism, and Charles, in the west, is very seri ously ill with mountain fever and erysipelas. Those who use base burner 6toves should look to it that there is no leakage in the pipe or absence of proper draft from defective flues. An entire family at West Point, consist ing of eleven persons, nearly lost their lives by asphyxia, caused by a defective flue. A through train is now run on the B. & M. from Atchison to ColumbuB without change at Lincoln, which is a great convenience for through passen gers, as well as the employes in the mail service-and train hands gener ally. The first trip of the through train was made Satarday. Henry Carrig was in town Thurs day. He nays Platte Center is flour ishing finely. Henry may be counted among the old settlers of Platte. He says Columbus looks very different from the old time, when you could mow grass nearly all over the site the town now stands on. The Ulysses Dispatch says the scholars of the high school at that -place recently presented Mr. W. B. Backus, the principal, with a band some gold watch chain, ma a token of their appreciation of hit services as a teacher. Mr. B. spent a part of his holiday vacation in this city, accom panied by his wife. It is not an uncommon practice now to construct large school build ings to be occupied by children so that there can be easy and rapid exit in case of fire, the- bouses generally being one-story. They are not very sightly structures, but then they are comparatively safer than the two and three-story buildings. A correspondent writes to the Omaha Republican from Platte Cen ter this county over the Finature of P. W. H. Among other items of local interest he states that Platte Center is very much in need of a banking house and offers superior advantages to some live energetic party, of even a limited capital. Rev. Father Flood, for several years past in charge of the Shell Creek Catholic church and missions attached thereto, will remove to Oma ha and take charge of a church in that city. The good wishes of many friends he has made in his intercourse with the people of Platte county will go with him to his new charge. The board of supervisors met on the 2d inst. for the purpose of settle ment with the retiring county treas urer. They will probably complete their work of examining the books this week. On the day following the convening of the board Mr. Early formally delivered the office into the hands of bis successor, C. A. Newman. At the regular meeting of Baker Post No. 9, G. A. R., Saturday even ing, the following officers were in stalled for the ensuing term: Com mander, H. P. Coolidge ; Senior Vice Commander, D. N. Miner; Junior Vice Commander, H. D. Coan ; Chap lain, John Hammond ; Adjutant, W. A. McAllister; Officer of the Day, John Tannabill ; Quartermaster, J. B. Schudy ; Sentinel, Dan. Bennett. Our old time friend and neighbor Andrew Eikemeyer, writing to us from. Wilmington, Cal., says that on account of continued ill health be is obliged to leave his home there and seek a more congenial climate. He will start for Portland, Oregon, some time during the present month, and expresses his regrets that he is com pelled to give up the Journal, even temporarily. We sincerely hope the change may prove beneficial to him. Several changes have taken place at the B. & M. headquarters in this city. We understand that a new agent will take the place of Mr. Hovey who has for more than a year filled that position. R. N. Irving, the telegraph operator, has resigned and gone to his old home in Iowa. Christ. Tscharner, car tender 6ince the road was completed here, has been remov ed. We have not learned the name of his successor. Mail agent Hough has resigned his position in the mail service of this road. Mr. John Rickly celebrated New Year's day keeping open house for about fifty of his friends, who were heartily welcomed aud most sumptu ously regaled. Notwithstanding the fact that Mr. R. haB reached that pe riod in life when the accumulation of years cause most men to seek rest and retirement and forego many old-time pleasant customs, he still retains a high relish for that social intercourse with his friends for which be has been noted through life. May be live to witness many happy returns of the "Glad New Year." John Hoflmau returned Saturday from his holiday trip, ostensibly to attend a family re-union back at bis old home in Wisconsin, bringing with him a wife. The lady who has be come the sharer of John's life voyage, through sunshine and shadow, was formerly Miss Mary Mooncy, and re sided at St. Paul, Minn., where the happy couple were mated on Dec 20th. On the way home a few days were spent visiting relatives at Emmetsburg, Iowa. And so this was the family re-union that our young friend went to attend a re-union of "Two souls with 'nit a single thought, Two hearts that beat as one." At the citizens' meeting Thursday evening last for the purpose of con sidering the advisability of making an effort to secure the re-union of the G. A. R. for 1884 at this place, it was decided, inasmuch as it appeared that about $4,500 would secure it, that the effort be made, and the preliminary steps looking to that end were taken. The following gentlemen were ap pointed a committee to solicit sub scriptions from the citizens : George Lehman, John Hammond and John Tannabill. John Hammond was ap pointed a committee of one to confer with the railroad officials of the U. P. for the purpose of ascertaining how liberally they would act in the prem ises. & An exchange very truthfully re marks: "Running a good country paper for less than $2 in this country is about on a par with selling goods at cost it don't pay. ChumpB and men who are not practical printers and very thin as editors, think they can add to their list by reducing. Better rely on legitimate prices, and give your readers the worth of their money. In the larger cities, where the circulation rnns into the tens of thousands, cheaper papers pay. But they do not build np your section of the country or advocate your home interests. All newspapers conducted on other than legitimate business principle will sooner or later go to the wall." 8chel Report. The following is a synopsis of the several summary for last month : Number Av.

The first ten days of this mouth combined with the last week of No vember were remarkable for the brilliant red glow of the sky before sunrise and after sunset. This was not of the dull character caused by the smoke of prairie fires, nor can it be attributed to refraction from clouds for during all this time with scarcely an exception the sky was entirely free from clouds of any kiud. On several occasions this appearaucc assumed the form of the flashes or waves of an aurora, so that had it been in the northern heavens I should have con sidered it as being of this character of phenomena, aud as it was witness ed over so large a portion of country the solution of the cause will be awaited with much interest. School Board. At the regular meeting Monday evening last, full board present. Communication from B. Wood, ask ing for increase of salary. J. Sulli van, attorney for the city, made state ment that the city loaned in 1871, to the district, $500, which amount with the accrued iutereat, the city wants to get back again. Referred to finance committee. Courae of study in high school reported and accepted. Motion made and carried that 300 copies of the course of study be printed.

Resolution carried. Hamphrey. We are having some sleighing at present. Twenty-eight degrees below zero Saturday morning last. How is that for low cold? M. C. Bloedorn is improving in health ; we hope soon to see him at his usual duties. Wm. Eimers is justly refusing to accept coal which comes having from Me to three tons per car load short weight. It is not often we have to chronicle stealing in our supposed honest little town, but if the party does not bring back or settle for the oysters stolen of C. H. Graham we will have to call him a thief. F. M. Cookinghatn is taking a vaca tion tbiB month, but can be found at home to transact any business in his line either as Justice of the Peace, or taking orders for any printing or subscription for the Journal.

Uhlig, Sec'y. :4 of Mercy A. !Vew Order f Chivalry. "I will try to be kind to all harm tess living creatures, and try to protect ihem from cruel usage." Education in morals, training in the Christian graces faith, hope and charity; an old theme, yet ever new. The best of mothers haye to mourn over way-1 wara sons; tne Hearts of faithful teachers must still ache on account of seed sown on stony ground. But discouragement will not avail ; more striving, more effort is needed. Mind must instruct mind, heart move heart, and character build character. Kind ness and mercy are the very core and centre of morality. Within the last year two noble men of Boston have shown us how, through Bands of Mercy, seeds of kindness may be planted in the hearts of our children ; offering to parents and teachers effi cient: help in educating the heart along with the intellect. Slowly we are waking up to the truth that crime and illiteracy are not co-extensive. We have plenty of educated knaves, and large numbers of criminals who are by no means illiterate. On the 20th of July, 1832, the first "Band of Mercy" in America was formed in the office of the president of the "Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals." To-aay 621 bands in over twenty states have a membership of 71,000. Among the earliest members of the "parent band" were John D. Long, ex-governor of Massachusetts; Sam A. Green, mayor of Bostop;. Chief Justice M. Morton and other judges ; Wendell Phillips ; many editors and nearly all the prominent clergymen of different denominations, Protestant and Roman Catholic, including the Most Rev. Archbishop John J. Will iams. The movement originated in Eng land and now extends over the con tinent as well as to America. In a single department of France about five hundred societies of school chil dren have been formed. 'Bands are being organized in Germany, Den mark, Russia, Switzerland; and in Great Britain, probably more than a hundred thousand children belong to them. In the public schools of Phila delphia about five thousand boys now belong to these societies, having meetings, badges, banners, etc. The Roman Catholic Band in the Boston Cathedral numbers fifteen hundred teachers and scholars. But why should these organizations be carried into our public schools? Let Mr. Augell, president of the "Massachusetts Society for the Pre vention of Cruelty to Animals," pres ident of the "Parent American Band of Mercy" and director of the "Amer ican Social Science Association," answer this question. In his address before the annual meeting of the Massachusetts State Teacher's Asso ciation, December 29th, 1882, be says : "Statistics show that the vest increase of crime comes mostly from those classes who receive little or no hu mane instruction anywhere. They can be reached in the public schools, aud nowhere else. Through these Bands of Mercy the whole humane literature of the world may be used to pour into their minds noble, ele vating, and merciful thoughts, which will make both them and their pa rents better in all relations of this life, saying nothing of the life here after. The literature of the world may be drawn upon for poem, anec dote, illustration, and instruction, and each .child, and the parents in many cases, may be set at work, in leieure moments, searching for gems of thought on the snbject. To sprinkle ashes on the icy streets; put the blankets, that had blown off, on the horse again ; feed the birds and spare their nests; kill the fish as soon as caught, as Agassiz taught his pupils; protect the toad ; avoid treading upon the harmless and useful worm, etc." In short the teaching of kindness to lower (human, too,) creatures, will make happier the whole future life of those so taught. Protection of all who need protection is for the highest interest of our commonwealth. Ministers, Sunday-school teachers, teachers in the public schools, magis trates, judges, lawyers, all good men and women of Columbus and Platte county, let these lines be an appeal to you to "go and do likewise." Simple directions, "how to form a Band of Mercy,'' and additional information may be obtained without charge by addressing George T. Angell, 96 Tre inont St., Boston. Remember, the pledge is only : "I will try to be kind to all harmless living creatures, and try tft-'protect them from cruel usage." No one can refuse to sign that. May we all hasten the dawning of that day "When peace shall over all the earth It's ancient splendors flinff, And the whole world give back the song That now the angels sing." Teacher. For the Journal. Tame Grtumen, Mb. Editor: With your request for articles on tame grasses you have hit the mark. It is a sure fact that our old prairie grass is getting thin ner and shorter and weedier every year. Hence we will haye to look out for substitutes. Your writer has, like some others, experimented on a small scale. He would like to say to his brother experimenters, don't be discouraged! The man who intro duced the umbrella into England was hooted at. When your writer brought short-horns into Platte Co. some wise acres shook their heads, and now, after a few years, everybody wants shorthorns, some paying much bigger prices than he ever bought or sold for. He also was the first so far as he knows, to sow German Millet, and write about it, and now, after the lapse of only three or four years, everybody sees how good a thing Millet is. I have also experimented with Alfalfa or Lucerne clover. The first little patch we sowed did well enough the fin t year, and came op all FOE BAEGAITSTS IN" STOVES, HARDWARE & TINWARE, GO C. T. BARLOWS, right the next spring as far as it was mulched, the rest was frost killed. While others on more sandy soil praise Alfalfa highly, the writer of this can give it only faint praise thus far, bnt having sowed a good deal last spring, some of which in the grain, he is waiting further develop ments. I last season planted a little seed of Teosinte of which it was as serted that on one plant a yoke of cattle could feed for 24 hours. My plants did not succeed very well, the leaves stretched oat might have been about two feet long. It is a southern plant and may do well for the sunny south, but not for Nebraska. The question has often occurred to the writer of this whether grasses and plants congenial to our soil and cli mate ought not to draw more atten tion. There is, for instance, the sun floweran unmitigated nuiaance in its wild state but who knows if the tamo Russian sunflower would be cultivated, but it might be made a great success and benefit to the coun try ? I have raised one plant, many years ago in my garden in Pennsyl vania, which srrew twelve feet high and produced 430 flowers, the main one of them at the head was as big as a good large sized soup-plate. How much 6eed would an acre of such plants raise ? Would it not beat corn all to pieces? In my next I will give my expe rience with timothy, blue grass, etc. A.H. MeBiaaa. Missoula, January 3, 1884. Editor Journal : Enclosed please find one dollar to apply ou my ac count for your paper, the Columbus Journal, as I cannot get along with out it. It is just one week old when I receive it, but it is not laid down until it is all read through. It is the nearest to a visit home with its home and county news that we can imagine and be so far away. Missoula is quite a stirring city, situated at the mouth of Hell Gate canon on the Missoula river. It is surrounded with high and lofty moun tains as far as the eye can reach. I have lived this past year on the south side of the Missoula river. The val ley here is about five miles wide from the river to the foot of the mountains and I have lived about in the center. The soil is a gravelly, sandy sub stance, intermingled with a deep, black loam, an excellent soil for rais ing all kinds of produce with irriga tion (of course). It is a good market here for the farmer if he works hard enough. Wheat 80c per bu. ; potatoes l)c per lb., and all garden truck the same rates ; butter 50c per lb. ; eggs 50c per doz.; turkeys $400 apiece chickens $6.50 per doz. Meat markets are crowded with buffalo, deer, elk, and occasionally a bear. It has been snowing now for twenty-four hours and still continues to fall. It is about eighteen inches deep and the beauty of it is there has not been a breath of wind to move a flake. It is truly an undisturbed mantle of white snow. I will close now for fear I may tire you with my ramblings,and hope you and your valuable paper may still flourish and cheer all homes it shall chance to visit as much as it does mine. I will bid you good-bye and a Happy Now Year and a heart full of cheer. Ma-tor Christmas. Letter 1.1st.

After the ceremony and congratulations the bride and groom, closely followed by guests, passed from the parlor to the din ing room, where a table stood, richly laden with good things, and there partook of the many varieties of food prepared for the occasion. Many valuable and useful presents were made to the fair young couple, too numerous to mention; how ever we will say a gold watch was pre sented by the bride's father. Mr. Burns is always well remembered on Christmas but this time he received a present which cannot be compared to money nor gold, a present which will make clouds tunihine, heretofore long dreary days, short and pleasant, one that will cherish him in sickness and in health a loving, indus trious, intelligent lady. And Miss Swortsley has received the same in Mr. Burns, he being an industrious, honest, christian gentleman. We wish them many happy years together and prosper ity while they do live. Zbbby.
