Columbus Telegram, February 29, 1906 -- Tarnov Tattlings
    ___ three of them had diphtheria, two of them since Tuesday before. Having run so long without attention, the cases were very serious. Anti-toxin was ordered at once and the home quarantined. They are now reported as slowly improving. This case, with many similar ones fully shows Tarnov's need for a physician. It is rather expensive to call a physician from a neighboring town every time a person feels ill and many times serious cases develop before one is called. There is a good territory here for a physician, and it would be a god-send to humanity to any person that can help us in locating one.

Carnival Week in Columbus
    Parker's "White City on Wheels", a late innovation in the amusement world, will be exhibited in Columbus all week, July 9 to 14. East Thirteenth street, in the vicinity of North opera house, will be the scene of gayety and color, four of the vacant lots in that vicinity having been engaged by the management. The carnival company will come on its own responsibility, just as any other amusement concern, depending upon its own ability and merit to draw the crowds and patronage. The Parker company is said to be one of the best on the road in every respect, and deserving of the kindliest consideration.
    Following are some of the attractions offered:
    The White City is headed by the Beautiful Bagdad, employing forty performers and musicians, including Clara Maria Adams: prima donna soprano; J. S. McCabe: the Peerless quartette; DeVere Bros., comedy acrobats; and Lavole & O'Sherna, wire artists, who give a two-hour performance twice daily under canvas.
    Hale's "Tour of the World" is another novelty never seen outside of the large cities.
    In Electric Theatre are to be found attractions of absorbing interest. Moving pictures of the San Francisco fire and earthquake, guaranteed to be actual scenes, depict in startling realistic manner the details of that horrible catastrophe. Buildings are seen to crumble and fall before the devouring flames, which in turn are seen in all their hideous fury to dart out and in amid the clouds of black smoke. The scene of desolation following the first day of the tragedy is also vividly portrayed.
    In addition to this feature are displayed upon the canvas several other subjects, including the beautiful biblical production offered in "Creation" which is entirely new and unlike anything ever yet presented.
    Granada, Fedora, and the wire-walking elephant, Rajah, will give two performances daily, at 8 o'clock and 10:45 p.m. Beautiful Bagdad will give two performances daily, at 3:30 and 8:45 p.m. All the other attractions will give continuous performances from 1:30 until 5:30 p.m. and from 7:00 until 11 p.m.

Columbus Telegram, July __, 1906 -- Tarnov, Nebraska
    ___ from here went to Platte Center where the principal attractions were an able and patriotic address by Judge HENSLEY, a ball game between Platte Center and the Genoa Indians which resulted 6 to 5 in favor of the Indians: the Oldenbusch band and the dance in the bowery. Outside of the above the attractions were very slim. A few families from town went to the Jacob MAUSBACH grove one mile east, a picnic was held at Mr. BRAUN's northeast of here, one at John CHOHON's northwest, and one at Peter SCHMIDT's southwest of here, so that more people attended the picnics than anything else.
    A. VOLZ went to South Omaha last Wednesday with a car of hogs.
    A man from Humphrey, who had indulged to freely in Platte Center lemonade on the Fourth, stepped off the train in Tarnov that evening thinking he had reached his destination.

Now we hope that Humphrey will not feel jealous of her neighboring village because he could not tell the difference. Come, "Gabriel," blow your horn, wake up and look before you leap.
    The four carpenters doing the repair work at the Kehoe elevator, celebrated the Fourth with home folks at Schuyler. Sunday afternoon they went to Platte Center to relieve the boredom.

    Tarnov narrowly escaped a conflagration Monday evening. Mrs. John FLAKUS discovered smoke in the ware shed at their store room and notified her husband. He secured a bucket of water, rushed into the smoke and as near as he could see, tossed the water into the blaze. It happened to be kerosene that was burning and the water spread the blaze which caught Mr. Flakus' clothing. He ran out of the building and John BRYGG came to his assistance to tear the burning clothes from his body, but before this was accomplished Mr. Flakus was burned somewhat. Also Mr. Brygg's hand was burned. Little damage was done to the building. This demonstrates Tarnov's need of a small water plant for fire protection and should cause all to keep their property insured.
