Novor in tho history of Sutherland

A card to tho Indopondont from A.

"Sunday mbrning. January 29, tho

Ilonningston. who was tho successful
bidder for building tho transmission
line from hero to North Platte. Tho
Bady board has glvon up all hopes
that a right of way cai bo secured
west to North Platto, but after a
conforenco with Mr. Honnlngslon
Maxwell decided next Monday to bo
curo tho right of way west, and It
tho effort meets with failure, Mr
Honnlngslon agrees to return tho
bonds to tho twd villages with only
a just expense account for his ex
penditures. So far Brady Is concern
ed, with tho return of tho bonds
Brady can go on negoLatlng with
Gothonburg, where current can be
socurod cheaper than with North
Platte, and tho right of 'way almost
assured. Maxwell can hook on to tho
lino at any time, with tho same
agreomont as drawn up for tho lino

Miss Ross, our county Red Cross
nurse, has completed the physical in
spection in tho Pdxton schools. She
was pleased to find tho schooj using
papor towels and containing shower
baths. Miss Ross gives us the follow
ing report of defects of the pupils of
our school: Forty-three pupils with
abnormal eyes; 43 pupils with abnor
mal throat or n so; 2 pupils with
poor hearing; 47 pupils with defec
tivo teeth; 7 pupils ovor 20 per cent
over weight, and 43 pupils more than
7 per cent' under wolght. Miss Ross
wishes to express her appreciation of
tho snlondld cooperation glvon by
tho teachors and the school board
Recently an agent of tho Midland,
Bureau was hero and closed up a con
tract for a four numbor, ?40 course
Wo, with tho fifteen, signed, but let
us say hero it is the last That's final.
Such entertainment courses might not
havo been out of placo back In tho
days of literary Bociety when folks
had very little amusement, and no
placo to go, but now wo cant seo for
tho life of us why tho bureaus should
bo kept In exists nco. Porhaps It Is
because of such suckers as us. Hero
Is tho Idea: Who guarantees us a liv
ing and a big profit? Then why not
tho entertainment companies and tho
talont whoso business Is not a bit
moro "preferred" than oura, bo car
ried about on a chip It used to bo ar
gued that they wore imperativo on
chaugo and only movo tho yard and Dlflt
roundhouso 13 miles runner east oi
Its present location. So wo feel sure
that Oshkosh or Llsco will bo tho
one In lino for tho location, Oshkosh
being 87 miles from North Platto and
about 110 miles from Yodor, but of
courso on tho heavier frolght end
of tho road, tills, If any difference In
distance would bo considered, Bhould
bo tho shortest. Besldo Oshkosh has
an up-to-date, sufficient water and
sowor Bystom, together with a modorn
light plant, and these no doubt will
bo taken Into consideration by tne
railroad officials. Garden County

causo this Item is of great interest to
its roadors, to tho pooplo of this

Especially tho final paragraph, In
which this is Btatod:
"Wo can assuro you (that is, tho
stockholders) that tho lncrcasod rato
ot dividend has boon earned with a
substantial margin as usual."
