CATTLE STEALING FLOURISHES
IX KEITH COUNTY
The cattle stealing Industry In Keith
county has again begun to flourish
with the result that ovor thirty head
imve been stolen within the last three
monhs. The sheriffs of Hox llutto
and Keith county have. one man In Jail
at Alliance now on suspicion, which
may yet uncover the gang that is op
erating up there with assistants in
Keith county. Strong suspicion is nl-
rndy being cast ' upon one resident
of our "county who has always hereto
fore borne a good reputation. Mr.
Arch Scale went to Alliance Monday
night to recover six head of their cat
tle found up there. It is thought thnt
the eleven head stolen from the Thai
ken ranch went a different direction
than Alliance nnd the officers still
have hopes of getting a clew to these
cattle. Keith County News.

were hosts -to the winning team nt a
supper served in the buaquet hull last
evening at seven o'clock. Eighty men
took part in the tournament and all
but two surrounded 4ho two big tables
and were served with a splendid sup
per by Stcwrird Smith and a lialf doz
en assistants. The menu was pre
pared by Mrs. Smith and it was cer
tainly a good one; In fact practically
every Elk sould not resists In making .u
gourmand of himself. Roast pork nnd
bacon, baked potaloDs, b'lwe:! beans,
cabbage salad, white and brown
bread, pickles and olives, mlnco pie
and peaches and cream disappeared
with wonderful rapidity before thnt
hungry horde of hearty Elks. A testi
