It was a frightful risk Capt. O. Phillips
made, last week, at Curtis, when he
offered to bet $100 that Curtis would be
the terminus of the railroad for a year.
However, almost any man in the county
would have done the same thing. It
would surprise us if the road, was extended
in much less than a year. It isn't at all
likely that Curtis will have the road at all
for more than five or six months of that
time. Stockville Faber.
The Platte river is now remarkably
high. One of the old timers, who has
been here since 1S74. r. marked the other
day that he had never '"seen th"rtver so
high in summer. It is not fordable. The
ranchers who cross the river are obliged
to go to the bridge. The water has swept
off the waste way near the head of the
Sterling ditch, and no water can be run
through the ditch until considerable work
is done. This, however, is of little
consequence, as the ground is now so wet
that there is no need of having water in
the ditch. Sterling Xeics.

When the B. & 31. train pulled into

gentleman of the cloth, fine looking and
agreeable, sat near the door in a seat by
himself. To the intimation of a friend in
the seat back of him, to take a lady in the
seat with him, he said : "Wait and I will
select the best looking and share he seat
with her. Here she comes,' and he took
down his grip and made room for her,
when the beautiful vivacious creature
said : "Here mother take the seat. I can
stand up," which the mother did, and the
gentleman of the vacant seat stood the
laugh of his friends all the way to Hast
ings. A sylable never passed between the
couple. Harlan county Press.
The overstocking of western ranges
with cattle is a good thing in one import
ant respect for Nebraska. L'pon short
rations of grass cattle do not become fit
for market. Grass beef is almost unknown.
The result is the establishment of a large

properly feeding stables, in the corn
districts of Nebraska. In a short time
there will be ten million dollars put into
the plants for this sort of business- It
pays good returns to the investor and
makes a demand for corn and hay that is
felt in the prices paid for them. As the
