Forty-one freighters wagons went
north from Sidney on Saturday last,
thirty-two on Sunday, twenty-five on
Monday, thirty-four on Tuesday, forty
on Wednesday and twenty-eight on
Thursday. It would almost seem as
though the Black Hills people consum

bined. People cannot be too careful in getting
on and off the cars, especially when the
grounds and platforms are slippery.
Only a few weeks ago a man was thrown
violently to t he ground when jumping

cars, and but for the timely assistance of
a bystander would probably have been
injured.

Last Sunday afternoon, January 1G,
Adolph Jaeggi, manager of the Elevator
Roller Mills of this city, died at his re
sidence, Eighth and Ernst streets, after
an illness of four weeks with pleurisy.
Mr. Jaeggi was born in Berne, Switzer
land, August 2, 1848, and was the second
son of a Swiss minister. He received an
excellent commercial education in a
wholesale house in Elmdorf, in Emman
than. He spent a year in Italy for the
purpose of learning the language, and
while there was an eye witness, in St.
Peters1 dome, of the concilium, de
claring Pope Pio Nono infallible. Hav
ing absolved bis military services in his
native country, reaching the rank of
lieutenant, he immigrated to Columbus
in 18G9, taking a homestead eighteen
miles southwest in Polk county,
where he enjoyed the blessings and
suffered the hardships of the pioneer.
Later he was the first book keeper in the
Columbus State Bank under Leander
Gerrard and Abner Turner. Later he
engaged in the lumber businss under
the firm name of Jaeggi & Schupbach
and then became manager of the Eleva
tor Roller Mills, which position he held
at the time of his death. Mr. Jaeggi had
enjoyed good health until a year ago,
when he suffered from a severe attack of
rheumatism, from which he failed to
And relief, even at the Hot Springs of
South Dakota. Eight weeks ago he
was taken with fainting spells and com
pelled to remain at home, and the last
four weeks he was bedfast during which
time he received the best of care, but
this did not avail to prolong his life.
Besides his wife he leaves three sons,
Paul, Walter and Ernest, all grown to
manhood, and one brother Leopold, all
of thtj city, and one sister in Salt Lake
City and another one in Berne, Switzer
land. Funeral services were held
Wednesday, at 2 p. m.from the residence
and were conducted by Rev. Neumarker
of the German Evangelical Protestant
church. During his long residence in
Columbus was always interested in the
growth and advancement of the city,
and in his quiet way gave substantial
encouragement to all improvements.
One of the most important and sweep
ing changes in the Union Pacific time
table, for many years, was put into effect
Sunday. Besides adding four new
trains, two, the Los Angeles Limited,
Nos. 7 and 8, are taken off temporarily.
Of the westbound trains, there are no
changes in No. 1, the Overland Limited,
and North Platte and Grand Island lo
cate, the two latter arriving here at the
same time as before, but under different
numbers. No. 3 and 15 are changed but
very little, and arrive in the evening as
before. No. 17, the Portland Special,
runs on the time of the former Los
Angeles Limited, arriving about 3 o'clock
in the afternoon. No. 13, the Colorado
special, is the night train, and leaves
Omaha at 11:48 p. m., and carries the
mail. The time for this train is the
fastest on the division, making the run
from Omaha here in one hour and forty
seven minutes, and from here to Grand
Island in one hour and ten minutes
No. 11 leaves Omaha about seven o'clock
in the morning, making it an early morn
ing train for Columbus people. No 5,
now follows No. 3 in the evening, the
same as before the last change. In the
westbound trains, No. 12 is an evening
train instead of in the morning, arriving
at 10:27 p. m. No. 14, the Colorado
special, arrives at about the same time
as No. 12 did. No. 18, the eastbonnd
Portland train, takes the place of the
eastbonnd Los Angeles Limited No. 8.
No. G. which formerly arrived in the
night, is now a day train, following No.
1G and arrives at 2:4(1 This new ar
rangement provides for three Denver
trains each way, and provides splendid
service for that travel.
Columbus and Omaha high school
basket ball teams played a very close
and interesting game in this city Friday
night. Judging by the game put up by
the Columbus team when in Omaha,
the team from the metropolis expected
an easy victory. But they soon discov
ered that Columbus made a big improve
ment, and that their play was ahead
of the former game. The score at the
end of the first half was 12 to 5 in favor
of Omaha, but in the second half Colum
bus played to win, and at the end of this
half the score stood 30 to 22 in favor of
Omaha, The lineup was as follows:
Omaha, Rectar, Carson, Patton, Finely,
Dodd, Burdick, Trimble, Knlakofsky.
Columbus, Becker, A. Wilson, West

Ever since the town of Monroe was
started they have at different times
considered ways and means for provid
ing a bridge over the Loup south of
town. At one time they had a tempor
ary bridge, but the high water washed
it away, and later they put in a ferry.
But now they have another idea and
that is to put in a pontoon bridge.
Those interested in this project have
been ascertaining the cost of such a
bridge, and they believe it will be possi
ble to raise the required amount and put
in the bridge Monroe has long felt
that the trade from the south side of the
river in Loup township and now hope
that a pontoon bridge will be the means
of securing it for them.

For a Court House.
At their last session, the board of
supervisors seriously considered provid
ing more room at the present court
bouse, and Architect J. F. Guth of
Omaha submitted plans for a remodeled
building, to cost about 50,000 and
utilize the present building. The board
discussed the plans and various ways of
raising funds, bnt before adjourning the
following resolution was presented by
Supervisor Goetz and adopted:
Whereas, A movement has been start
ed by this board to submit to the tax
payers of Platte county the question of
either building an addition to the old
court house or to build a new court
house for the county, therefore, be it
Resolved, That the question of pro
viding for a new court house for the co
unty of Platte be made the special order
of business for the second day of the
next session of the board of supervisors
at 2 p. m. of said day.
The date of the second day of the
meeting is March 16, 1910, and at that
time the remodeling of the present
building, or the building of an entirely
new one will be taken up and discussed.
The court house question is one that
every taxpayer in the county is interest
ed in, and has been before the people on
different occasions. Platte county has
long needed a new court house and it is
hoped that the 'present movement will
result in providing more and better ac
commodations for the county officers.

Next Sunday the meeting will be held
in the Y. M. C. A. and will be entirely
in the hands of the boys. There will be
four or five speakers.
The boys' Bible classes will meet at
6:30 and all the boys are welcome. Rev.
Dibble will give a short address on Bible
study before the boys separate to their
classes.
The Men's meeting will be held at the
usual time next Sunday afternoon at

Messers Lamie and Putnam sang a duet.
Mr. Jones spoke to the boys from the
incident of Joshua's battle with the
men of Ai. And he had in evidence an

More than Co different monthly and
weakly magazines and daily and weekly
papers are on file in the Y. M. C. A.
reading for the free use of the members,
When these magazines have been read
and replaced by later issues they are of
no further use to the association. This
fact and the fact that it costs the as
sociation a largo sum in subscriptions
for this matter has caused the education
al committees of the association under
the approval of the board of directors
to offer for sale most of the mugazines.
Any one desiring to secure these maga
zines can get information how to do so
at the office of the association.

He pleaded extenuating circumstances,
but County Attorney Hensley reminded
Ruppert that this was the third time he
had been up on the same charge, and
that twice before he had been dealt
with leniently, on a promise to not dis
obey the law again, and he was bound
over to the district court under a $600
bond. As he desired to plead guilty
Judge Thomas said he would hold court
Wednesday afternoon, and it is quite
probable, as Ruppert said, that after he
gets through with this trouble, Platte
county will not have any more bother
with him.

Herman Weyen of the northwest part
of Monroe township, was in the city
Tuesday on business. In speaking of
his corn crop, Mr. Weyen said he still
had about twenty acres in the field, bnt
that he did not anticipate it would be
damaged by the snow, and rain, and he
would be able to get it out as soon as
the snow melted. He also believes in
feeding his grain to stock, and the other
day marketed two loads of hogs at Platte
Center that brought him almost 8200.
February first is the date that those in
charge expect to have the new double
track Union Pacific bridge, west of the
city, so that it will be out of the way of
danger from the ice. All the steel
trusses, except the east one, are in posi
tion, and all that delays the finishing
of this one is the concrete and mason
work on the cast pier. The emergency
track and false work would very much
impede the movement of the ice and
throw tho strain on the bridge, but by
the first of next month all of this will
be removed.
