County Treasurer's Notice
Owing to the time it took to forward all

notices but now give all due notice that I
am going to give everybody not having re
ceived notice, a statement of their delin
quent personal tax and if the same is not
paid in ten days, I will be compelled to
collect same with extra costs. Now, I
mean business and am going to collect
taxes due the county from everyone,
S. C. Reck will quote you prices on
all kinds of milt work, tanks, screens,

County Assessor Sweeney Engaged
in Listing Property for Taxation.
1 What you goiii' to do when the as
sessor comes 'tound?" ,
This is the nil importnut question
that now confronts tho tax payers of
Box Hutto county. County Assessor
E. P. Sweeney and his deputies are
busily engaged in listing nil property
subject to tnxulion. Now, it is well for
those affected by this proposition to
sea to it Unit they mnka full and com
plete report of their holdings so (lint
there will bo no trouble later on, or
discovery that certain property has
been overlooked. Moneys in banks,
loans, mortgages and securities arc
subject to tnxation and licnco must be
listed with the assessors or his deputies.
So strict lias the law been mndo on this
point, that in default of same, the
county assessor is empowered with tho
right to double the taxes on property
not listed. Hence it will be seen that
it is best to make a complete report of
Boys and Girls
The Box Butte county educational
rally will be held in Hemingford April
18, at 1:30 o'clock p. in.
A subject of equal interest to teach
ers, patrons, boys and girls will bo dis
cussed by Deputy State Superintend
ent E. C. Bishop and several of tho
best local talent speakers of tho county
that can be secured. No one who can
possibly nttend can afford to miss this
meeting. An important feature of the
program wiil be the organization of tho
boys' and girls' clubs, consisting of
potato growing, bread baking, butter
making, sowing, etc., and it is desired
to have every boy and girl in the county
enter these contests.
A lecture will also bo given in the
evening by Superintendent Bishop on
"Tho Progress of Education." Tho
fact that Mr. Bishop has been invited
to give lectures in several of the east
ern colleges is sufficient to show Ida
efficiency along these lines. Come and
The First Locomotive.
When and whero was the first loco
One of tho standard encyclopedias
gives this history of tho origin of the
locomotive: "Although there were
numerous predictions aud suggestions
of steam propelled carriages, notably
those of Sirlssaac Newton in 1680 nnd
others, tho first locomotive that de
serves tho name was that of Richards
Trevithick in 1803, True, Cugnot made
a steam-driven road wagon in 1769 and
Murdock in -4, but Trevithick was
without doubl '.'iu father of tho loco
motive. Ho found that plain wheels
had sufheient adhesion and that cogs
were unnecessary; ho used high pres
sure steam; he turned the exhaust into
the stack and so discovered its effect
on the fire, called it the "Blast pipe."
His first engine had four wheels, all
drivers four feet six inches in diameter.
The boiler was six feet long and had a
return line, bringing the chimney or
stack at the same end as the fire door.
Thete was only one cylinder but tho
length made up for two, as it was eight
inches in diameter by fifty four inches
long. Unfortunately circumstances pre
vented Trevithick from following up the
developement of the locomotive and as
a consequence many of his ideas have
been accredited to others. Between
Trevithick's engine and the 'Rocket
(1829), which is sometimes called the
first locomotive, men had not been idle
by any means. Bleukinsop in 1812,
Hcdley with his Puffing Billy in 18 13,
Oliver Evans in tho same year, and
others make up the list. Iu 1825 the
first public railway was opened, in
Stockton and Darlington railway, and
George Stephenson was engineer. Its
first engine was the locomotive which
was built by Stephenson hi 1825. He
also built tho Hope, Black Diamond,
Diligence and Experiment in 1826.
Timothy Hackworth's Royal George, a
rebuilt engine, went into service in
1827, but none was entirely satisfactory
and a prize of $500 was offered in 1829
for the best engines. The Rocket,
Novelty and Sauspareil entered and the
Rocket won, although some claim this
was due solely to the failure of the
others, caused by poor work aud mater
ial, This was the famous Rainhill,
England, trial which is so often quoted
and in which twenty-nine miles per
hour was made."
