Mr. A. R. Lew arrived in Harrisou
from (ireenllcM, Iowa, last Monday. In
the at tcriioou be went ovfr to his home
stead near Jim creek and found that
some one had called during his several
months absence 'and appropriated the
roof, door and window of his" house, be
sides a number of other articles from tho
inside. He proceeded to replace tlifi de

lias !en its limited water supply, and
the faij, lias occasioned no small amount
of worry and much anxiety has been ex
pressed as to the final result of fcecuring
a water supply of sufficient quantity to
meet all demands for years to come.
With a view to more fully developing
the natural resources for an increased
volume of water, the town board some
time ago contracted to have a well
drilled to the depth of 500 feet, and the
work had been going on for several
weeks until it was recently completed to
to the depth of 290 feet . when it was
foipid that a smaller drill bit would have
to be secured liefore the work cqnlu be
completed. The first water had been
tacped at 100 feet deep. Last Monday
it was decided to test' the volume of
water by drawing with a horse and buck
et, the bucket holding about 20 gallons.
Twenty-one barrels of water were drawn
all together. After the water in the
well (which stands aliout 140 feet deep)
had been lowered a little over three feet it
was found impossible to lower it further
and, although a rate of 2(5 barrels per
hour was reached, for several minutes,
the depth to water, as each succeeding
empty bucket was lowered, was found
to be exactly the same, and the proba
bilities are that the supply is inexhaust
ible. The steam pump, which has the
capacity of lifting 48 barrels per hour
from a depth of 500 feet, is to be moved
to the new well and it is sate to say that
the city of Harrisou will not again be
troubled on account of a scarcity of wa
ter. The quality is all that could be de

We recently overheard Mr. Smith say
that he heard S. Barker remark that Ed.
Weir told him that Chas. Jameson said
that he heard someone tell Slingerlaud
that Jack Pfost told him to tell the town
board to notice and see if the town cis
tern didn't need a new pump.

We call the attention of the Gordon
Herald to the fact that there was an
election held in Nebraska last fall and
that at said election George H Meikle
john was elected Lieutenant Governor,
Thos, H. Benton, State Auditor, John b.
Hill, Slate Treasurer and John Steen,
Land Commissioner. Tho above sugges
tion is made simply as a matter of good
faith, as a stranger in the state would not
know the same from reading1 the list of
State Olllcers as published ih the Herald.
Three horses belonging to VV. T. Moore
strayed away about two weeks ago and
after several days search two ot them
were found about 25 miles south-east of
Alliance. The third animal was taken
from a suspicious looking individual
who had stopped for the night at the
upper 33 ranch last Sunday. The ani
mal had been branded and it was un
doubtedly a clear case of theft. Sheriff
Pfost and Thos. Reidy made search for
the thief the next day but be bad silent

"What can I do':" she said,
"I am too weak to battle with the strong.
Brute force will conquer whether right
The world is lost in sin, and here I stand,
Armed only witha woman's slender hand,
What can I do?" she said.
Behind dark walls of stone,
Tossing upou his narrow prison-bed,
One lay upon whoso restless, fevered
That self-same woman's hand was gent
The while she told of heaven, and home,
And mercy at God's throne.
In foul, polluted ways,
'Mid want and wretchedness, I saw her
And scatter blessings with her voice and
Until the pallid children of the street
Stooped down to kiss the dust beneath
Hushing their noisy plays.
'Mid sorrow, shame and sin,
She walks as calmly as thro' guarded
Nor fears to go wherever duty calls;
And many a helpless wreck afar from
Has grasped the anchor of her slender
And been drawn sately in.
Oh strength from weakness born!
What though the jarring light be fierce
There swells above the mighty roar a
