At Matt. Allison's sale Wednesday, what was sold brought fair prices, but, owing to the sale at Winslow's the same day, Mr. Allison concluded to postpone till later in the season, what he has to dispose of. Matt Allison feels pretty good since he has had his sale and paid off his mort gage indebtedness. Like Benjamin Franklin, he realizes that a man in debt is a man in slavery, and it is a good thing to be free. Has Platte county a single public school in which the English language is not taught to the children? It would seem so, when boys of eighteen, just out of school, are not able to talk, except in a foreign tongue. The Cedar Bapids Outlook speaks of the maltreatment of some of their citi zens who went to California this year, by real estate agents who disposed of land to them at enlarged prices and under false pretences as to value.

Wheeler on his recent trip to Missouri, when Sam bought land down there.

Fillman and Mrs. Frank Borer, who are enjoying the beauties of California, sent a package of orange blossoms from Los Angeles, to a friend, that came as a beautiful bit of spring time to this climate. The Baptist church of this city has extended a call to Rev. T. L. Smith of Chicago, who has occupied the pulpit two Sundays recently. The gentleman is now in Albion, and it is not known whether he will accept or not The funeral services of Mrs. Coulter, mother of Mrs. W. A.

We would like to make a suggestion to the managers of the new opera house as to the clearing of the house at the close of an entertainment. None of the exits should be locked, but all open; if this rule be followed, in case of fire the room can be quickly vacated. The Inter 8tate Grand Concert com pany gave their concert in the North opera house last Friday evening to a crowded house. The program was var ied to suit the taste of the public piano, violin, cello, instrumental, with soprano and bass soloists adding much to the entertainment. Miss Ella Rasmussen gave a valen tine party to the senior class Saturday evening at her home. The evening was spent in playing different games, Miss Ada Barter and Albert Becker winning first prizes for one of the games, which were handsome boquets of carnations. Late in the evening supper was served. Wednesday night of last week at Bagel's bowling alley quite an interest was manifested in a match game between Columbus and Schuyler teams.

It seems that after February 1st it is required that all petitions for rural free delivery be prepared on a uniform blank furnished by the department o that those interested in routes will prob ably have their work to do over. George Drinnia has received the necessary blanks and will call again on the former signers. Success to the route. Albert Tessendorf of Platte Center and Miss Lydia Henning of this city were married Tuesday afternoon of last week at the German Lutheran church, Rev. H. Miessler officiating. The wed ding supper in the evening at the resi dence of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ferdinand Henning, was enjoyed by invited guests. The Platte Center Signal says: "This makes the third Tes sendorf brother who married a Henning sister." The Globe-Journal of Dubuque, Iowa, tells of the marriage there Wednes day evening last of P. H. O'Callahan, who had lived near Platte Center, this county, to Miss Mina Kruse. They were lovers twenty-five years ago, but Mr. O'Callahan came to Nebraska, was mar ried and settled here. About a year ago his wife died. Last fall he sold his farm, drifted back to his former home, and the marriage with the love of his early years resulted.

The local lodge A. O. U. W. Thurs day evening enjoyed a visit from Jacob Jaskalek of South Omaha, Grand Master Workman. The order has certainly had a remarkable record since its organiza tion, October 27, 1868, by John Gordon Upchurch at Meadville, Penn.,with four teen of a membership, numbering on January 1, this year, 423,000. There is one thing about the order in this state that commends it to Nebraska people, which is that this state was set aside as a 'separate beneficiary jurisdiction in June, 1886. At that time there were here 2,060 members; now, 31,000. The lodge here has about 120 members; the Grand Master thinks it ought to have 400. He went from here Friday to North Bend, where he expected to help initiate a class of 65 to add to the 200 members of the lodge there. From the Redlands (Cal.) Daily Facts we learn that at an early hour on February 11, Mrs. Emily P. Gates, widow of the late William J. Gates, died, at her home there, at the age of 83 years. Funeral service at the family residence 10 o'clock, February 12, Rev. Dr. J. H. Williams officiating. Interment at Hill side cemetery. Mrs. Gates was born at Dover, Ohio, January 28, 1819. In the year 1812, she was married to Mr. Gates, and seven children survive them. Mr. and Mrs. Gates moved to Redlands in 1886. "Deceased was an earnest and conscientious member of the Congrega tional church, and always exercised her influence on the side of the high plane of morality and strict integrity." Mrs. C. G. Hickok of this city, daughter of Mrs. Gates, will have the sympathy of all her friends in her bereavement We are indebted to the Bucks County (Penn.) Gazette for a superb calendar for 1902, the work of that office, both as to scenes around Bristol, and as to printing. Remembrance of Jesse O. Thomas carry us back to the time when we roomed together near Franklin col lege and later at Antioch college, and later still when the same venturesome pair of young mortals contracted with Richard Hatton for a newspaper plant at the old native town. Nearly a half cen tury ago, what pictures hang upon memory's walls, scenes of the times that tried boys' souls, and faces, many of which long ago disappeared from "the light of day," to be all the more valued as precious memories! Our young-old friend may happily remember gentle Shakespeare's lines: "Lots all. tract a few. Do wrong to aoae; be able for thine eseair Bather ia power, than nan; and keep thj friend Under thj own life's key; be cheek'd for aileace. Bat sever taxed for speech." J. E.

One hundred and twenty-five years old and handed down in his family for many genera tions It is reported that three of George L Clark's children of Woodville have got the smallpox. They recently returned from a visit to Omaha and it is thought that they contracted the disease in that city. The Big Cut school is closed for a time Horace Eaton re turned from his trip down through Okla homa and Texas on Monday. He re ports that he visited the site of the new Fitzgerald colony in Texas and says the town lots that have been laid off for the members are so small that in order to build a store or a residence a person will be compelled to purchase the adjoining lot which of course is retained by the company for just this purpose.

From the Bellwood Gazette of Friday last we condense: A. H. and R. C. were arraigned in county court Wednesday. A. H. Gould, the cashier waived his preliminary ex amination and was held to the district court R. C. Gould, assistant cashier, entered a plea of not guilty, and his hearing was set for yesterday. Both were remanded to the county jail in default of bail. George Gould, who was arrested Monday evening pleaded not guilty and gave his bond to appear for bearing on February 24. He wae soon rearrested on complaint made by others and succeeded in giving bond for his appearance. A. H. Gould, the cashier, it is said, will probably plead guilty in district court next week and ask the leniency of the court Dick Gould was given a partial hear ing yesterday in the county court. The hearing will be continued today, after which his brother George will be put upon the stand. A gentleman writes from Kansas City, Mo, saying that he holds notes and mortgages, varying from $500 to $1,500 on the following named persons: Homer Earl, John N. Delehamet Matt Supan chik, Anton Moell, John P. Ferine, E. Eberly, Dan P. Burch, W. H. Rogers, James McKillips and S. W. Allen. In the letter he wants to know from his Bellwood friend what has become of all the money that wss sunk in the Gould bank. He thinks it must be buried for future use, or possibly gone to bucket shops; that if he drew others in as he did the writer of the Kansas letter, he probably has secured $100,000. He also wants to know if there is any move on the part of the victims to confiscate the Gould home, his stock farm, eta, or if there is an attorney on the -ground watching the disposition of what was left The writer of the Kansas letter, we learn, for many years past has at different times visited with the Gould brothers and was one of their most inti mate friends. How they could "let down" such a friend and in such a manner is beyond our comprehension. M. Holland has been appointed re ceiver of the bank. One of the proprietors of the Michigan City(Ind.) Dispatch wrote to the Ga zette last evening that perhaps it will be of interest to the victims of the Platte Valley Bank to know that one of the Michigan City victims has received a let ter from A. H. Gould, telling him that he need not investigate mortgages, as they are all forgeries while another resident who had $11,000 in Gould's hands re called all of it less than a month before the bank failed. He, certainly, may con gratulate himself on his good luck. J. B. Hookstra had $800 on deposit in the Platte Valley State bank when it went under, Elias Eberly $1175 and G. D. Meyer $160. Mr. Hookstra also holds several notes that he purchased from the bank, some of which, he thinks, are forgeries. For the benefit of numerous Jocb jcaii readers, especially among the farm ers of Platte county, interested in the subject we reprint from the St. Edward Advance the following paragraph: "The Commercial club has reason to be con gratulated upon the manner in which it is handling the telephone question. The reduction of fifty cents per month on the business and residence phones has been demanded and will be received, if not through the Nebraska telephone company, then through the Albion com pany who have expressed a desire to put in a system here and connect this town with five or six of the neighboring towns that are already on its system. The Albion people have offered to make the rate cheaper between here and Albion and, whether as a result of this offer or not we are not prepared to say, the Ne braska people have reduced the toll between the two towns from twenty-five to fifteen cents. The majority of the subscribers prefer to retain the phones now in use, but feel that the rate is too high, and for this reason and no other, the overtures from the Albion company have been very heartily welcomed. A very large number of the present sub scribers to the Nebraska company have given the company notice to take the phones out and every one of them will be as good as bis word if the matter should come to a test" DR.

In justice court last week Ittand got judgment against McPatry for 870. the nmonnt claimed by Ifland as still due on the purchase. McPatry's defense vras that he did not make the representations alleged and that this balance of 870 was paid by him to Itiand's deceased father. Verdict of the jury not guilty.
