Next time they will proba bly be in better ahape. The two Becker brothers of Grand Island were in' town a few hours one day last week on their return home from the David City Chautauqua where they had been filling a musical engagement.

Until recently the family have been making their home in Beatrice for about two years. Coming home from the convention last week we stayed over night in Co lumbua For the first time in our life we wandered out to the court house and as we journeyed we wondered why they didn't locate it in the business portion of Fremont instead of the suburbs. Ar riving at the seat of justice, or injustice, we were almost filled with envy when we observed the beautiful shady park in which the house is located and remem bered the other little fascinating spot where lovers wander in the gloaming, which belongs to the city. To think that Columbua haa two such dreams of Paradise and Albion has not even the picture'of one:is enough to make one weep over the frail shortsighted human ity of Loran Clark, John Peters and others that they did not make thia pro vision twenty-five years sgo. Cant some one suggest how it might yet be done? We must have a park and that right soon. Albion Argus. The following from the Platte Cen ter Signal may concern a good many of our readers and if heeded may save them trouble and expense: "Numerous com plaints have been made by farmers living along lower Shell creek about the dan gerous and inexcusable nuisance of throwing dead animate into the creek. A petition has been circulated among the prominent farmers of lower Shell creek and business men of Columbus, which petition sets forth that unless tha practice of throwing dead aniniala into the creek is abated the malefactors wUl be arrested aad punished according to law. We extend this warning to the farmers living along Shell creek in this part of the country for the reason that the petitioners have a stringent law on their aide aad they are determined to enforce it. The habit of throwing dead animals into streams is a criminal offease aad should not be tolerated ia a civilised commuaity. It spreade' contagion of disease to maa aad beast, and tha quicker aa example is made of a wrong doer in thia direction the bettor it will be for the commuaity." Ralph Wiggins, Eber Smith, Howard McCray, Qareaee Watdroa aad Charlie Graves are all employed by the Emerson Seed company at Monroe to work ia their fields. The bade in that vicinity have beea pretty well covered with water and. the workers have not beea abb) to get ia the fields bat a portion of the time. The boys came down Wednesday and until Monday. The aew hospital building oa cast Fifteenth is neeriag completion and will make a epkadid addition to the city. The brick aad stone structure has three fall stories, a high basement aad an attic, will coataia forty rooms for the use of patients besides operating room, parlors, dining rooms, ate. The old hos pital accommodates 150 patiente includ ing the dormitories. The new building will cost $50,000 aside from the furnish ing. The wood work, plumbing and electric lighta are now receiving the fin ishing touches aad the magnificent structure will probably be ready for occupancy the latter part of August There win be 310 electric lights con trolled by oae awitchboard, electric belle for each room for the accommodation of patients, telephones on each floor, dumb waiters and many other conveniences. The operating rooms have been built on striot sanitary plana with tile floors, rounded corners in the wall, ventilators, sky light, etc. The chapel, which ie complete bat for the seating, occupies the third sad fourth storissof the build ing. The walla are beautifully frescoed ia brown and red shades with trimmings in gold leaf. A small' gallery for the choir ia at the rear of the room. The altar pieces are in place, but not uncov ered. , There is one large kitchen with a modern range, with dumb waiters and telephones connected with each floor. There ia also a separate kitchen and oven for bread baking. One of the valuable pieces of furniture in the house will be a Urge refrigerator, whioh ia now on ita way from Indiana. Charles Wurdeman haa had the superintending of the build ing, the Dnssolle had the contract for all the plumbing and heating, Jacob Glur has the cement work and Echols A Dietricha oiling the wood and painting. Besides these there are many other workmen from the city. The Sisters of the hospital deserve all credit for the great undertaking they have assumed and for the splendid reputation they have established for the hospital all over thia section of the west When the new building is completed there will not be a better equipped hospital in the state both as to nurses and sanitary condi tions. In a few months several more nurses will be added to the list of helpers. The Cetebrmtiaa. On the morning of the Fourth, after two or three weeks of very wet weather, the eun came up clear with good pros pects for a spell of fine, clear, sunshine, hence all roade led to Columbus, but among the thousands who came, there are few who would not come again and brave the rain storm we were favored with in the evening. Dealers in fireworks were well stocked with all kinds of combustibles, from small crackers two for a nickel up to the largest cannon crackers which look so innocent yet are so dangerous and de structive. The only question waa aa to which would disappear first the blank cartridges, fire crackera and other noise producing instruments, or the money; and aa all seemed to be well supplied with cash, dealers did a rushing busi ness ss' the din commenced early and did not let up until the early hours of Saturday morning. The St Edward contingent arrived at 9d0on aspecisl train of eleven cars, on board of which were several hundred enthusiaatic young patriots also the St Edward band of seventeen pieces, be sides the base ball team. The passen gers were wreathed in smiles which plainly said we are coming for a good time, and they surely had it The train waa met at the depot by the Columbus City Band amid the firing of thousands of guns, pistols and cannon crackers. After the train arrived the participants in the parade congregated at court house square and at 10:30 sharp started, headed by the St Edward band, with the Rev. Ed. King as drum major. While passing 1st us stop to compliment the little city of St Edward on the appearance of its band as a whole, also on the excellent musio rendered; we think we can truth fully say that it is one of the very beet bands in the state, everything consid ered, and composed of a gentlemanly lot of musicisns. The parade waa a surprise to many who were not expecting to aee much. The committee worked hard for this feature of the celebration. The mer chants were loth to take the responsi bility of decorating floats on account of the changeable weather so that there were but a few of these exhibits. Those who did, however, showed excellent taste in their decorations. The parade formed at the court house square and after marching through the principal business streets disbanded at Frankfort park. Peter Duffy, mounted on horseback, headed the procession, aa one of C J. Garlow's aides. The St Edward band came next then C. J. Gar low, Wm. Terry, C. a Eaaton and Ray Young, all mounted on horseback; the base bell teams; the mayor and city council in carriages; Urge float with caorua giris who furnished selectione of vocal musio later in the park; after these came decorated carriages; Columbus City Band; mounted riders; floate of merchants; comic wagons, etc. We give a list of prizes awarded to those ia the parade.

There had been no application for admis sion in this class so that the judges are wholly responsible for their decision. The program in the park was excellent, the Columbus and St. Edward bands, the singing of the chorus of girls, the address by Mayor Dickinson, the read ing of the Declaration of Independence by Rev. Hayes, were all listened to with interest. In the afternoon the sports were held on Eleventh street, while at the same time a band concert was given by the two bands in the park. The prizes for the sports were as follows: Boys' foot race under 15 years, Myron Gray first, Eber Smith second; same under 10 years, Oscar Baker; 100 yard dash, John Ran dall first, Arch Ball second; we were unable to procure the name of the boy who secured the first prize in the slow bicycle race, the eecond was given to Alfred Anderson; sack race, Howard McCray first, Henry Kohler second; three legged race, Ralph and Fred Sny der first, and Henry Kohler and George Plath second; running broad jump, Joe Gutzmer first, Ralph Snyder eecond; same, Joe Gutzmer first, Ed.

The balloon ascension that was adver tised had to be dispensed with on account of the high wind and rain. The ball game scheduled to commence at 4 o'clock waa one feature of the sports that brought out a record breaking crowd to the grounds, and long before the hour arrived the grand stand waa filled, most of the occupants being from St. Edward, who were ready to give their favorites all possible encouragement. The game wss a good one; there would perhaps have been more scores recorded but for the wind which was strong from the south. The tallies at the end of the game stood 4 to 0 in favor of Columbus. NOTES. Frank Clark wss authorized to make aa much noise aa possible with anvile between 12 o'clock and sunrise, but aa the police objected to hie using the park in which to plant his battery, the citi zens were allowed the extra allowance of aleep.
