' 'Fred. Blaeer baa bean laid ap with rheumatism since last Febraary, bnt gat noma better last weak aad moved to bit arm three miles aorta of the city aad thea started Thursday for Mr. Height's, south of tha river te pot ap a aaw school aaase. Tale is brisk saving aboat for a rataawtk aatieat. Treasurer Early was at Llaeela Taeeday of last weak makiag nettle-meat with tha state treasurer, taral eg over to him $11,900 collected oa state taxes since October last. Platte county, for the amount of her property, Mr. Early says, paya mora state taxes than any other in tbe state, as a comparison of figures will show. The Pratt & Ferris cattle company aad the Converse cattle company of Wyoming, we leans have purchased twenty-five thousand acres of land in Boone and Platte counties, from John R. Clark, of Lincoln. These lands formerly belonged to the Burlington k Missouri land great, and will be used for cattle ranges. Mr. Sheldon, who purchased 600 acres north of A. W. Clark's farm, will probably have it enclosed this week. He is going right along to improve it otherwise, and expects his family in three or fonr weeks. Mr. S. is from Ford Co., 111., knows what good stock is, and the value of it. He has come to the right spot, and is an acquisition to the community. Sheriff Kavanaugh returned Fri day from tha Insane Asylum at Lincoln, bringing with him Frank Chambers, Henry Relge, Nicolas Mattis, Mrs. Farley and Mrs. Grip. The discharge is made by Dr. Matthewson on the ground that the patients are incurable and harmless, and room must be made for new applicants. The removal of them costs Platte county about $55. Joseph Rash was brought down from the west Saturday and taken before the Commissioners of Insanity who found that he had no legal residence in Platte county. Rash afterwards tried to preach a sermon on the street, and was put under arrest, and confined in safe quarters till Monday evening, when be was taken to Merrick county, his legal residence. The burden of his talk is religion. A St. Paul harness maker named Stephen O'Grady, got fifteen months in the state penitentiary last week, for embezzling bis employer's funds to the amount of $35 ; to raise which he sold two or three times tbe worth of the sum named in goods. Two accomplices were indicted, but they have not been tried yet, and will not be until the next term of the District court. Qrana Island Independent. The live land men, Tasker & Routson, are doing a good business. They Bold a big stock farm In Polk county to an Illinois man last week. People prefer to buy from them because they survey the land sold without charge, and a purchaser knows what he is buying no guess work. A house and lot in town put in their hands on Saturday were sold on Monday, and the cash down paid for the same. Sonthworth & Underwood's stable of race horses arrived in the city from tbe South Friday night, and are now quartered at the track, where they will receive their finishing touches for the Jnne races. Among them are "Daisy Dean," "Kate McBride," "Libby," "Big Kesene," and "Dan. Haney." They are a fine lot, and Charley Bell, the trainer, thinks it will take some good ones to beat him "any jump in tbe road." The man or company who will venture the investment of money in the wholesale business of groceries and dry goods in Columbus, will, we predict, receive large returns from such investment. There are a great many towns, villages and country stores within trading distance of Columbus that would give their custom and induce others to deal at this point The right men to conduct a wholesale business of the kinds mentioned, would in a short time build up a large and profitable trade, and one that for many years to come could be held, solid. A business man asks us why he should have his printing done at home, when he can send it away and get it done at lower prices. We answer the question because occasionally there comes along a runner from a house away east somewhere carrying several lines of goods, and also taking orders for job printing. Often tbe low-priced printing Is used as a bait to sell high-priced wares ; or samples are shown that are not duplicated when the printed matter comes; or (as we have known) the 1,000 cards ordered turn out to be only half so many ; or, the order is given in large quantities and no cheaper than your local printer would make the same run for. We venture to say that nine cases out of ten your local printer will do the work more satisfactorily and at cheaper rates haa the foreign fellow. Aside from these facts, you send money out of town that might be kept ia tha community to yonr benefit. A trading center is a cluster of business enterprises, which may be made mutually beneficial by each one buying of each other, such articles of merchandize as he himself does not keep for sale. To illustrate : suppose your local printers do tha entire work of the community at fair, living rates (don't aver pay them more) ; they will then ba enabled to better their facilities for work they will grow with the growth of yonr town; they will employ more help, who will again increase the business done. The true business man recognizee the mutuality of benefits, and furthers bis own in- tereet by building ap his community. I The Wit Buffalo Bill, with his Indians, buffalo, elk, and Dr. Carver, tbe famous marksman, have been the town talk foi several days, Dr. Carver's wonderful feats with tbe rifle being the special attraction here. On Saturday a party of Omaha Indiana arrived with their ledge pole, teats aad other camp equipments. A party each of Sieux aad Pawnees are expected to complete tha display of Iadiaas,which will undoubtedly be an immense attraction for eastern people. Wbaa the compaay. shall have got wall eater way, we prediet for It aae of the greatest aaecaseee aver made by shews, any oaa af tha many faatarae being worth tha price of ad-mtoalaa. They started, six full car loads, yesterday morning for Omaha, where their opening performance will ba given Thursday. AWauece. The Shell Creek Alliance No. 407 met ia attendance with Grand Prairie Alliance, at Redenbaugh school-bouse, April 23d, '83, with a fair attendance. The meeting was called to order by the president.

Jacob Goodson, Pres't. F. P. Hoffman, Sec'y. Fire! On Saturday last about 2 o'clock tbe alarm of fire was given from tbe Engine House, and a heavy column of smoke was seen to rise on Nebraska Avenue. In a few minutes a goodly number of the active citizens of the town were present and at work assisting tbe firemen, who were promptly on hand and at work. The building ablaze was the property of Mr. Sutton of Boone county, on tbe alley north of Arnold's jewelry store and south of Honaban's shoe store, and occupied recently by James Kay and Mr. Phln-ney. The fire originated in the rear apartment used by Mr. Kay as a work room. Mr. K. had locked up the store about ten minutes before tbe flames were noticed and had started for the fair ground. The fire engine was placed at the well near Fried-hoff s, and a strong stream of water kept constantly at play on and in tbe burning building, while volunteer firemen with buckets did what execution they could. The firemen worked hard, managed admirably and soon the flames were under control, and the buildin? partial I v saved. The ship on Kay's front was not burned, not a rope scorched. The building was of cottonwood. Goods were removed from Arnold's store aud some one stole about $25 worth before they were returned to their place. Mr. Kay claims a loss of twelve to thirteen hundred dollars partially insured. Hampkrey. The heavy rains of Sunday last filled the wells, streams and earth iu general, the overflow being one of the heaviest rains known for a long time in this neighborhood. Parties were in town last week prospecting with intention of starting a general store here. We understand he has secured the refusal of a building site for a short time. We hall with delight business men to our thriving town. Mr. Jacob Steffes will again rebuild ; his plan is to build a hotel and saloon in separate buildings; he has bought an addition of one-half lot from Newell South, which will give him more room. He began bis foundation on Monday. We are pleased to state that- Mr. Newell South has decided to rebuild bis hardware store here as soon as he can make his collections among tbe farmers ; be sorely feels his loss, but being built of the right stuff, endeavors to follow the example set by tbe Industrious ant, "if at first you do not succeed, to try, try again." Yonr correspondent learned from tbe secretary of the Farmers' Alliance that at their regular meeting Friday evening, May 10th, at Creston, fifty-two members voted to assist Newell South by their sympathy and trade to rebuild. Mr. South has been here for a little over one year and has a host of friends who truly sympathize with him in his loss. C. Seal Estate TraaNfen.

Some mouths ago the editor of this paper saw lying on a table at a hotel in Fullerton a book entitled the Encyclopedia of Health aud Home. Casually opening and examining some of its pageB, be became immediately interested, devoting perhaps an hour to its examination. Ho has recently had an opportunity to procure a copy, aud takes this opportunity to call public attention to it. The Encyclopedia is a book of eighteen hundred pages, in two volumes, (or the two combined in one at a less prhe), and treats upon all diseases, accidents and ailments of men, women and children, giving simple home remedies. It gives causes, symptoms, remedies and preventatives. The medical portions of the work are by Prof. Wood of Philadelphia, Dr. Ruddock ofEnglaud and Dr. Frost of New York. It contains eight or nine divisions or departments not strictly medical, all of them, and they aro of extraordinary value to every family and every individual. A department entitled the "Ladies Manual" has one hundred and eighty pages, which every woman, sick or well, should be familiar with. Its information is designed not only to cure the sick, but to enable those who are well to keep well. One hundred pages are devoted to domestic animals, giving causes, symptoms and cures for all ailments of horses, cattle, hogs, sheep and poultry. Tbe book is an exceedingly practical, common sonse work that every family should have. An important fact in regard to it is that it contains all tbe new and important remedies which modern science and skill have developed. It is new, reliable and comprehensive. One of its strongest claims to consideration is the nigh estimation in which it is held by the very best people, all over the country, and the immense sale it is having everywhere. The publishers employ about two hundred flrst-clas3 men as general agents, each having his allotted territory, and these two hundred have about one thousand sub agents and canvassers who carry the book to the very door of every family throughout the Union. It is expected that five years will be required to thoroughly canvas the United States. Thus far, about two hundred thousand copies have been published, and the canvas is ouly just heguu. Any of our subscribers who fail to see the canvasser and would I liko a copy, may leave word at this uuiuu aim we win iiimisn me agents address. Tbe book cannot be procured except by subscription.
