were offered at public sale at Sidney, on
Tuesday ; several sections along the rail
road were sold at from $10 to $16 per

near Chappell, paying $51 per acre. He
is confident of the division of the county

The romance writer on the Advocate is
still at it. This time it happened on the
tributary to the upper Frenchman. To
tell it briefly, Peter Scblegel, an old
German farmer, had a daughter, ' buxom,
handsome and pleasing to the eye," es
pecially attractive to the italic optic of
Hans Upperman. The old farmer had
serious objections to Hans, but the girl
reciprocated to the best of her Teutonic
ability. After a row, they "bucked and
gaged" the irate paternal sire, and the
young couple, with all sails set, headed
for Akron. The old man missed the trail
and started towards Sterling. An
Akron minister pocketed the fee, and
the wheel turns. Julesburg Tri-
probablethat before the season is over
the terminus, which is now at Onowa, a
point on the river some 50 miles above
Omaha, will be removed to some point in
the western part of- the state, if not in
Colorado. There sterns to be but little,
reason to doubt that North Platte is the
present objective point of the road, which
is about equivalent to saying that the road
will be built trough Broken Bow, as it
lies on a practicable route and in the
direct line between Onawa and North
Platte. Broken Bow Statesman.

During the past week we were over the

This penetrates what has heretofore been
considered the heart of the Great Ameri
can Desert, supposed to be utterely value
less for anything except grazing. The
land between this point and Sterling is
unquestionably good and capable of great
development. "West of that section the
fertility the soil has never been tested to
any great extent. The surface is diver
sified. The soil that has been cultivated
the past year has produced good crops.
It is as yet but sparsely settled and land
is to be had under all the "entries granted
by the government. "Water is obtained at
various depths from five to one hundred
feet. A stratum of coal has been discov
ered and a fairly good quality is found.
Building stone is also obtained in many
portions, suitable and of a good quality.

Tough on Charley.
Some two or three yeara ago Charley
Yeamans proved up on his claim in
Furnas county, Nebraska, receiving a
receipt for the amount of money paid.
Now comes notice from "Washington to
the effect that the entry has been can
celled for want of sufficient residence, and
gives him thirty days iu which to go into
the land and complete his residence.
Charley makes affidavit that he was not
off the land except at short intervals, and
tben only to earn a livelihood and money
to improve the claim. What effect this
affidavit will have with the powers that
be, remains to be seen. Akron Press.

A gentleman named Stearns was a
passenger on Sunday's noon train going
east . He had with him John Delaney , a
miner, who had both of his legs blown off,
his left arm shattered, and his eye sight
ruiued, by an explosion in a mine near
Leadville. Both of the unfortunate man's
legs had been amputated below the knees,
and Mr. S. was taking him to Chicago in
hopes that something might be done to
restore his eye-sight. Sterling Advocate'.

The board of county commissioners has
been in session several days this week.
Not much business of of importance was
transacted excepting the purchase of land
for a poor farm, the leasing of Mr. Fitch's
for a temporary poor farm and the decis
ion arrived at by the board to submit to
four county division petitions. The
eastern third which petitions to be cut off,
will be called Dual county. The west
third will be divided into three counties,
the north county to be called Scotts Bluffs
county, the center Banner county and, the
south third Kimball county Cheyenne
county's lines will be just west of Potter
and east of Lodge Pole. This is the
division decided on at the Kimball con
vention and there is every probability
that it will carry. Potter county and
Wright county petitions were both denied
as they conflicted with the division that
has been proposed. Commissioners Davis
and Neumann voted in favor of the three
county plan, Commissioner Smith oppos
ing. The board has acted wisely in this
matter by favoring the practical plan and
the only one there was any hope of carry
ing. It will compel Potter people to
make the fight if they have good legal
grounds on which to oppose division.

As per previous announcement the
state veterinary surgeon visited the city
yesterday to examine the deceased horses
of the county, with a view of killing all
that had glanders. There were among
the number examined, fourteen head con
demned and ordered killed There were
some very fine horses that were fat and
likely lookins that had to be shot. It is
hard-to see horses thus shot down, but the
work should be continued until the county
is freed of glandered horsas. It entails
quite a loss.upon the owners as they only
receive about fifty per cent of the value of
those condemned. Broken Bow Repub

this article is acquainted with the bride
but does not know the groom. As it were
both parties attended a wedding which
took place in the city in which the young
lady resides (the victim of the. latest
"wrinkle"), and we presumed where they
formed acquaintance. The parties in
person are a Mr. Martin, of Brooklyn,
N. Y., and a Miss PofTenburger, of
Sheperdstown, W. Va. The young lady
is quite fascinating and accomplished, and
is of well-to-do parents. The youug

groomsmen on the day previous to his

In October 1886, the Union Pacific rail
way company contracted with the A. L'.
Strang Co., of Omaha, to build a pipe "
line from Green River Station to Rock
Springs, for the purpose of supplying the
camp and coal mines and the town with
water. For the past eighteen years a
water train has run daily between those
two points, and all water used by the town
and all mines but one has been supplied
with water by train. The average amount
hauled from Green River was about one
hundred thousand gallons daily
and some seasons of the year the water
train was not able to s upply all the water
needed any some of the mines were un
able to work during the short supply
