time to put it out. This should be a les

Mr. Inghram, who has been running a

"Agricola," a correspondent from this
place to the Lincoln Co. Tribune,
writes to that sheet as follows:
"I noticed in last week's Herald a call
for an attorney to locate here. An at
torney would do well here but a lumber
yard would do better. We are not so
particular about the yard so we get the
lumber, as we have already two yards
and no lumber. What our farmers and
merchants ought to do is to ship their
own lumber, as one of our merchants did,
and we glory in his spunk. Give us a
company that can carry a stock of lum
ber not a yard."
The identity of Agricola being unknown
to the Herald we connot say exactly what
is gnawing at his vitals . After reading
the above we interviewed our lumber
yard managers and elicited the fact that
credit is not now being given without se
curity: Possibly Agricola may have also
found it out. We understand an edition
booming North Platte is soon to be is
sued from that town and withont a doubt
a few correspondences from Wallace of
the above stripe will be liberally paid for.
The fact is our lumber yards carry as
large a stock in season as those at any
other town doiag the same amount of
business. As very little building is done
in the winter it would be folly to carry a
large stock. As well might a "restaurateur
lay in a stock- of ice cream for winter use
or an implement dealer lav in a stock of
plows in the fall . People cao come right
along to Wallace and be treated as white
as " " XTT.n -gri-tj a.141'
Nothing; not even any of th lumber
which our yards have been carrying in
stock this winter, but judging by the way
the Herald bristles up one would natur
ally suppose that its editor had been fed
on lumber this winter, and his digestive
organs being of a weak nature have
failed to digest all of the knots and there
fore be is of the opinion that our yards
are well stocked with lumber. We have
interviewed the managers several times
and find it is no fault of theirs as they
have shown us orders which were sent
out the early part of December and
which have not been filled yet Our
merchants carry a full stock of goods;
our bankers have the best of facilities
which has been proven by the loans they
have made, where others have failed to
get the money. We know of a number
of men who have come here after lumber
who had money to pay for the same and
who have since gone to North Platte and
Paxton after it and as a natural conse
quence would do considerable trading at
these points which would come here had
our lumber yards carried such stock of
lumber in proportion to stock of dry
goods, groceries, etc., which our mer
chants carry. Is it justice to our mer
chants and bankers to tolerate such com
panies? Answer this ye consumer of
knot-holes. The Herald is off again
when it says an 'edition booming North
Platte is soon to be issued from that
town." There is talk of an edition being
issued from North Platte booming this
county, and should Agricola have any
thing to do with it, Wallace and vicinity
will have her share of the boom. Again,
Agricola is not unknown to the Herald
as Agricola made himself known to the
Herald editor as well as to three fourths
of the business men of the town. Ob,
yes, come right along to Wallace and you
will be treated white, just as white as
you were ever treated in this wide world
and you will find as agreeble managers
and clerks as ever weighed out a pound
of coffee, measured off a yard of calico,
sold a load of coal or figured up a bill of

From the Curtis Record.
Frontier county boasts of a citizen who
is nearly a centenarian . His name is
James Moffat and he lives about five
miles south of Curtis. In three yeara.
more he will hav completed his one
hundredth birthday, and is still able to
walk a mile without becoming fatigued.
During the active period of his life he was
a minister of the gospel. He was born in
the year 1791, fifteen years after the
United Colonies declared themselves free
and independent of Great Britain. During
the the eventful course of his life he has
witnessed the wars of 1812, the Mexican
war and the civil war. He was born in
the time when stage coaches were the
only means of conveyance, when the
steamboat was unknown, and the railroad
was a thing unheard of. Since that time
he has witnessed the arrival of all these,
together with the telegraph, telephone
and the innumerable and countless inven
tions and improvements in the way of
machinery. The thoughts of what this
man has seen, leads one to compare the
present age with that in which the morn
ing of his life was spent, and to cause
those who are in the active period of their
lives to appreciate more fully the advant
ages which the present age of thought
and progress affords.

The B. & M. has abandoned the work

On the trial of Darius Brown, last
Thursday, for the sale of liquors, on Sun
day, the accused was proven guilty and
fined $100 and costs of trial. Attorney
Starr, of Indianola, appeared for the
defense and County Attorney Stewart
prosecuted. Other cases against theuame
party will be tried at the April term of
the district court. It is generally believed
that Brown has been selling without
government license. If this proves true,
it is likely to go very hard with him.
