Mr. Geo. W. Slocking, a Saunders
county sheep raiser, was in the city

and possibly investing in a tract of
land in the vicinity.

expect to cast their lot.
The official who does not intend
to enforce laws that may be obnox
ious to his own feelings, can nearly
always plead the apathy of public
opinion, which, however, ought not
entirely soothe the conscience of him
who has taken a solemn oath to exe
cute the laws pertaining to his office.
Owners of hogs will do well to
look to their feed and care now.
Hog cholera is reported in various
points in the state. Nebraska had
her bitter experience of this disease
years ago, and if, as many suppose, it
was caused mainly by the monoto
nous feed of corn, it will befell to
1 vary the feed a little.
An old subscriber, remitting mon
ey for more than a year in advance,

A. C. laid down the scissors and gave

notice that out of fourteen papers that
find their way to onr boose, she sorts
out the Jouenal."
The infant child of Brother Hens
loy of the Democrat was very serious
ly ill last week. So critical was the
little fellow's condition on Wednes
day evening that the attending physi

ents any encouragement to hope their
child would live. At this writing,
however, he is rapidly recovering.
A Fable. Once upon a time a
preacher, in a very lengthy sermon,
undertook to demonstrate the general
proposition that man is mortal. He
labored assiduously, and at the end of
the discourse there was not an intelli
gent man in the congregation who
would have disputed the truth of the
proposition, any more than he would
have done before.
A liquor dealer at O'Neill has
sought the protection of law against
several men who shot through his
windows, lamps, etc., by having them
arrested for drunkenness. Every
class of citizens needs the protection
the law gives against those who in
vade the legal rights of others, aud
hence all right-minded people should
be in favor of enforcing the laws of
the land.
Wm. J. Wynand, of Walker pre
cinct, was in the city Saturday, and
by a little incidental conversation he
disclosed to us the fact that he is
working into the tame grasses, having
succeeded in getting a fine stand of
10 acres of timothy, from which he
has taken two good crops, and he in
tends soon to put in another lot. He
cultivated his first lot on wheat stub
ble and had good success.
Last Saturday, as an east-bound
U. P. freight pulled out from the
depot, a gentleman who had a car
load of fat cattle billed for through
shipment without delay, side-tracked
aud waiting at this point, might have
been heard in no very measured
terms expressing his disapproval of
the conductor who for some reason
failed to take the cattle, departing
with his train only about half loaded.
At Judge Gaslin's last term of
court in Buffalo county, a man who
had forged a note for fifteen dollars
was given fifteen years' bard labor iu
the penitentiary. It was a pretty
heavy sentence, but, as tho judge ex
plained, be knew the man and gave
him fourteen years on general princi
ples. Hastings Journal.
The judge probably went upon the
theory that the man had acted up to
the full measure of bi& ability to
The Swedes who moved to Ne
braska from Illinois and settled in
communities together, have generally
(so far as we have observed) entered
largely into the raising of broom corn,
and they make it pay. The Wahoo
Tribune Bays: "LaBt week Mr. Frank
Peterson sold eight and a half tons of
broom corn at $90 per ton. This was
raised on thirty-five acres of ground,
making a return of nearly $22 per
acre from the ground cultivated."
Levi Jenkins of Madison county
arrived here Monday on his way
home from a visit to old friends in
Illinois and Iowa. Before this trip,
in all the years since he has lived in
Nebraska, he has not been further
away from homo than Lincoln. Like
the visits east of all Nebraskans that
we hear tell of, Mr. Jenkins enjoyed
himself first-rate and was treated
splendidly, but he is more than ever
assured that Nebraska is the place to
have a farm.
Our contemporary, the Sun, has
changed bands, Mr. McMurphy, late
of Plattsmoutb, this state, succeeding
Messrs. Cady & West. Since the
latter gentlemen assumed control of
the Sun they have made it a paper
second to none in the etate as a county
newspaper, and as we understand Mr.
McMurphy is an experienced news
paper man, we predict for the readers
of the Sun a first-class paper in the
future, ab it has been in the past.

The ColumbuB correspondent of
the Norfolk Journal, whoever he may
be, has, we are told, been saying some
"unprctty" things concerning our
board of supervisors. The board, so
far, seem to be getting In some very
good work, and this Jouenal rather
surmises that if they keep looking
after affairs right along as sharply as
they have started out (and they are
the kind of men to do so) the tax
payers of old Platte will have no
reason to grumble.
It is understood that the B. & M.
road will not get into Grand Island
without a contest with the U. P. There
will probably be a brief contest after
it gets in, and then business will be
come monotonous and uninteresting
again to the general public. Numer
ous roads don't always make compe
tition in prices, and unless a town is
so large aB not to take much account
of an additional railroad or two, it
would seem that for all ordinary pur
poses one road is sufficient.
Mayor Whitcomb of Seward en
forces the law in regard to liquor
dealers, aud Instrncts his subordinates
as to their duty in suppressing all in
famous practices. The Seward mayor
has, therefore, no bawdy-houses in his
jurisdiction. Recently a 6trumpet
visited the place, was arrested (with
her male companions) and the Blade,
after giving all names and particulars,
says : "We believe it is right to pub
lish the names of anybody who will
get down low enough to be caught in
such company nnder such circum
stances. Parents having young girls
ought to know who it is that is guilty
of such shameful conduct, so they can
guard against them."
Under date of Jan. 4th, Joseph
Gardner writes U9 from Walker, la.,
that he was snowed in at that place,
that the snow was a foot deep on the
level, and that from 7 a. m. to 5 p. m.
the train had made only 60 miles and
stuck in a snow bank for the night ;
the passenger train of the day before
was in a like condition 50 miles ahead.
At 9:40 a. m. of the 5tb, the ther
mometer marked 37 degrees below.
This incident in Mr. Gardener's trip
shows that the cold wave swept Iowa
An interesting law question late
ly came up at Hastings. Notes were
secured by chattel mortgage. Under
the "insecure" clause common in such
instruments, the mortgagee took pos
session and sold tho goods bofore the
notes became due, and now brings
suit for a balance yet due. The Jour
nal remarks that the present practice
of foreclosing chattel mortgages is
rather arbitrary, and suggests that
the proper method would be some
thing like the foreclosure of real es
tate mortgages.
A special meeting of the school
board was appointed for Monday
evening at Speice & North's office ; a
meeting of the Cemetery Association
superseded tbem. The latter held
tbeir annual meeting, electing their
officers for the next year same as
last. The treasurer reported a bal
ance on bands of $507.94. Tho fenc
ing of the cemetery grounds was left
to the executive committee, Messrs.
Ernst and North. There seems to be
a difference of opiniou as to whether
the fence should be of iron or wood.
We believe there is an exhibition
to be given in Columbus this evening,
the nature and character of which
does not commend it very strongly
to a respectable, intelligent commu
nity. Some sluggers from Omaha
will exhibit their skill in the "knock-
ing-on." science. Physical power,
when rightly directed, is a great
blessing, the value of which cannot be
overestimated, and causes deserved
admiration for its possessor, but when
prostituted to exhibitions that appeal
only to the brutal feelings, it Is con
temptible. The Central City Nonpareil, in a
little discourse upon the treatment of
newspapers by "hosts of little-souled,
narrow-contracted people," who ex
pect the local newspaper to be "a sort
of public convenience at its own ex
pense." The fraternity proper will
subscribe to the closing sentiment:
"A newspaper is not a beggar, and
should be willing to stand on a foot
ing with other business, but when it
comes to asking it to give about half
its resources, and then attempt to beat
it down on the other half, the strength
of liberality is a little on the extreme."
Uncle Morton, a grain man of
Chicago, tells a very short story con
cerning an Irish friend of his, a mem
ber of the Board of Trade, who had
bought largely of hog product, and
was pondering over the amount of his
losses on a falling market. "What is
the matter, John, you look very sober
about something ?" "I was thinking,"
said John. "Well, what were you
thinking of that makes you look so
sober? asked Morton. "I was just
thinking," said John, "that the hog is
a contrary animal while be is
alive, and uo less so after he is dead."
The following from the Lincoln
Journal will be of interest to Ohio
soldiers living iu this part of the state :
"At the last re-union of the G. A. R.,
held at Hastings, the Ohio soldiers
met and perfected an organization,
and instructed Col. E. P. Roggen,
their secretary, to take immediate
steps towards preparing a list of Ohio
soldiers. The colonel has labored
faithfully ou what has seemed to be
an endless task, and tho work is now
nearing completion, and when finish
ed will comprise 1,400 names, repre
senting all but two or three Ohio
regiments. Wc understand rosters
will be mailed to each comrade whose
name appears thereon."
At this time wheu snide shows are
fairly flooding the state, aud have
nearly exhausted the patience of a
much suffering public, it is refreshing
to be able to announce the coming of
an entertainment with an establish
ed reputation one that travels on its
merits and does not ask to be taken
"on trial." Such is the popular Sam
Lucas Colored Comic Opera Com
pany, billed for next Wednesday
evening at the Opera House. They
will appear in the new operetta, en
titled "The Dude," in three acts writ
ten expressly for this organization, in
which they have appeared with uni
versal satisfaction in their tour of the
principal towns of the state.
There is no use in mincing mat
ters or piling up words to no good
end. If a law is good, enforce it ; if a
law is bad, enforce it still, so that it
will the sooner be repealed and out of
the way. The executive or judicial
officer, sworn to enforce or interpret
the laws, who fails to do so, to the
best of his knowledge and ability, in
other words, the men who do not in
tend to do their duty, should receive
all the blame that comes from the
violation of law, because a little lax
ity in the official begetB considerable
license in the criminal. When the
law can be violated with impunity, it
simply means that the criminal class
or tbeir sympathisers are in power.
We are indebted to Mr. Wm. H.
Weeks, one of Grand Island's typo
graphical orotnernoou, for a very
pleasant call Monday morning. He
tells us that he has graduated from
publishing a daily paper, a thing we
were not at all surprised to hear. It
seems to us that it would take a pretty
good sized national bank to ruu a
daily any where in Nebraska outside
of Omaha and Lincoln, and even there,
only the enterprise and vim of the
business men makes it possible. We
may say, however, that we have been
surprised that Hastings so handsome
ly supports her daily paper, which is
by all odds the best representative
she has to make her known to the
ontside world.
The committee appointed to so
licit subscriptions for the purpose of
defraying the expenses of the re
union have, so far, met with com
mendable success, and feel encour
aged over the prospect. Our citizens
need not be backward in imisting
upon the meritorious claims of Co
lumbus as against any other place in
the state. To be brief, it is centrally
located with complete railroad facili
ties in every direction; a splendid
place for encampment, with shade,
shelter and most excellent water; a
commodious and nice opera house,
where the visiting comrades can be
entertained with music and drama;
nearly a score of churches where the
church militant can meet ; fine roads
for drives into tho country in every
direction, besides which we have a
people who in all things will deal
fairly and justly with the hosts that
will gather at the re-union.
Tke PlaMter's Wife
Will be presented Friday evening,
Jan. 18th, at the Opera House by the
Edwin Clifford Dramatic Compauy.
The troupe is a favorite one, and they
will doubtless have a good house.
The Sioux City Journal remarks con
cerning a recent rendering of the play
at that place :
Miss Stanley's support was good
throughout, and especially on the
part of Mr. Clifford, who at times
pleased the audience with some vory
effective acting. Haven in his char
acter of Simeon Cincoe, fairly set the
bouse wild, and has established his
reputation as a first-class comedian.
He is immensely funny, and to miss
seeing and hearing him is to miss
a good thing. Lanagan and Miss
Haven are also deserving of especial
mention for the very pleasant way in
which they carried through their
parts, and if Burton could only un
bend a trifle, and be a villian with a
little more sang froid in his composi
tion, he would be a little more ac
ceptable." Alllaace Itfeetlag.

Editor Journal : I wish to say a
few words through your columns in
reply to an article published in the
Norfolk Journal, on Township Or
ganization, but the writer failed to say
much on that subject. The drift of
his conversation was directed to the
actions of the board of supervisors ;
he would have the dear people of
Platte county to know they had sent
a set of numbskulls to represent their
interests, and further an outsider
must infer from the tenor of talk, they
act green, look green, and work green.
This would be the natural conclusion,
and the only task they would be com
petent for would be feeding cattle.
I will bet the writer a gourd seed he
cannot tell by the looks of a toad how
far be can jump. Then remember
this that no man's tiny fingers were
made to scratch out people's eyes.
No ; not even with pen and ink. Some
men are wise in tbeir own conceit, so
wise they imagine all others fools.
This imaginary wisdom of theirs
leads tbem to believe tbey are proph
ets, capable of prophesying and fore
telling future events. I would sug
gest to the anti-man, as long as he
lives in a gloss house not to throw
stones, aud to remember wc have
read about prophets, ghosts, bugbears,
&c, aud still got the first one to see.
