Howard Whitaker was seen plowing
through the snow drifts in our neigh
borhood Sunday p.m. He seemed
lost, but it later developed that there

Mason City, Nebr., to bo at tho bed
side of his dying father.
Mr. Leathers, Sr., we are told, wants
to sell out and get back toward Missou
ri. He'd better stay with Sioux county.
Wc arc reminded of the pepple who
became discouraged and left Sheridan

ago, and today the farms they left are
worth from J20 to J50 per acre. Of
course, we don't raise tho same kind of
apples and roses here that they do in
Missouri or rocks, either.
If we are going to have school during
the winter season in this district,
wouldn't it be well and much more hu
man to build some sort of a shelter

how much hardship and sulfating
might ho avoided. During tho past
several weeks of bad ronds and weath
er thero has necessarily been a short
age of supplies in the stores at Canton
and Curly. Charlie, instead of taking
advantage of tho homesteaders' hard
position and ''sticking it onto them"
with high prices, has sold his goods at
a lower prico, in most cases, than the
Hemingford, Alliance and Marslaud
merchants. Not only this, but seeing
hard times ahead, ho has limited tho
supply of flour, kerosene, otc, to each
customer in order to make these neces
sities help most of tho people. For
iustanco, how can tho Marsland mer
chants blame us for knocking a little
when they charge us twenty-five cents
for a gallon of kerosene that wo can
get at Canton for eighteon cents.
