Tb Sew Well 4 Hneews.
Last week the Journal made due men
tion of the new well and of the fact that
our citizens were fully confident that it
would prove satisfactory. Such is the
case. Last Saturday about 4 o'clock in
the afternoon the work of placing the
steam pump in the well was completed.
This pump raises about 45 to 50 barrels
of water an hour. It ran until about 10
o'clock that evening with only one
short stop and there was no appar
ent lowering of the water in the well.
The flow is demonstrated to be practi
cally inexhaustible. There is no quest
ion about there being an abundant quan
tity of water of excellent quality.
Plenty of water lias here-to-fore been
Harrison's most pressing need. The
large deep well at the corner of Main
and Second Streets was not a success for
some unexplained reason. The fact tliat
there are a number of good wells on the
divide near to town always gave assur
ance that we ought to be able to have a
good well here. The new well was drill
ed more as an experiment tlian anything
else in hopes that by putting down a
well in a new place a vein of water
might be tapped that would afford an
abundant flow. These hopes are more
than realized. Not a vein merely, but a
great stream seemingly lias been tapped,
and the steady jKwerf ul strokes of the
large steam pump working for hours
fail to perceptibly lower the water.
That there is gratification and rejoic
ing over the result no one can doubt.
The water works question is very mud
simplified now that it is proven tliat
there is an abundance of excellent water
to be had for the pumping of it. The
fact will be promotive of settlement and
establishment of business enterprises at
There are a number of plans being put
forward now for convenient system of
water works. Doubtless some one of
them will soon be adopted and will ev
entually crystalize into an accomplished
In the meantime the Journal wishes
the world to know that everybody can
get a drink of excellent water in Harri
son at all times and that there is enough
for man and beast.
How to Beat the Twine Trust.
L. W. Gilchrist, writing in the Ne
braska Farmer, says: "Beat the trust
by not using any twine. Farmers ask
how they can use a twine binder with
out using twine. I will explain how
Take your bmder and build a little out
rigged platform below the binding appa
ratus and along side of the frame, of
pine and not more than 1 j inches square
and the frame should be covered with
pine siding. The contrivnace should be
in the shape of a little cart open at the
rear end and so arranged that it can be
dumped by the driver by an arrangement
of a pulley and cord. By dispensing
with the twine you can commence cut
ting oats at least a week earlier, and in
wheat can commence at least five days
sooner. In both of these cases the value
of the straw is greatly enhanced for
feeding by reason of being cut when
green. Then let the grain remain in
bunches as they fall from the machine
until two-thirds dry, and then stack
loose. When you bind with twine the
bundles have to be shocked up. This la
bor, added to the labor of stacking will
more than take the same grain from the
field, thrown in bunches, and put in
good shape into a stack or a rick. The
money you pay for twine will gather
the grain in the bunches as they were
dropped by the machine and put the
same in a good safe stack. Top the
stack with a layer of hay and you will
have grain in better shape than you can
have by binding with twine. In using
twine to bind if you happen to com
mence a day or two too soon your bun
dles will mould in the center. Adoptf
this method and you can take off yoifr I
uiuuer aiutcnuiein. i our macmne runs
one horse lighter. Your grain will be
saved in just as good condition. The
straw will be worth fifty per cent more.
The cost of stacking will be less than to
shock and stack in the bundles. Just
leave the twine off your grain one year,
and I am satisfied that the twine com
bine will suffer a certain collapse."
The party of 80 Indians who are
compose Buffalo Bill's Wild West show
this season, came down from the Agency
Monday and left Rutthville at five o'clock
in the evening by special train over the
F. E. it M. V. railroad. They were in
charge of Major Burk, Broncho Bill and
John Nelson, all financially interested in
the Wild West show. They go direct
to New York, and from there they will
sail for Europe, where they will spend
the coming summer. The parting of In
dian friends at the depot was a scene
that might affect the most stony heart,
which goes to show that the American
Indians are not a heartless people, for
all the butchery that they have com
mitted upon "the whites" in the past.-

The first nauiud gentlutuan was a mem
ber of the legislature ad niado a good
record. The second is 4 man who has
long been identified with the banking
business and is well tilted for the posi
tion. The third is well known to the
people of this city and county, For
about fifteen years T. E. Sanders has
been in the kinking business and it us
safe to say tliat there is no detail con
nected with the business with which he
is not familiar. This fact taken togeth
er with liis pleasing address will make
him one of the most efficient and popu
lar examiners tliat could have been se
lected. Mr. Sanders is thoroughly hon
est and during his long residence in Sew
ard county he lias made hosts of friends
to whom the appo'Btment i highly satis
factory. The Reporter believes the new
law to be a good one and so long as su h
selections are made to look after the
hanks it will prove of immense ben
efit to the people and save heavy losses
to those who place their money in the
banks for safe keeping, Seward Reporter,
The Rushville Standard is justly indig
nant over the fact that a certain rea
dent of that county wrote Governor
Thayer to the effect that innocent and
peaceful settlers were oeing terrorized by
a band of lawless men under the self-assumed
name of vigilantes. Tlie Omalia
Bee reporter enlarged the already moun
tainous mole hill in a half column arti
cle and the Governor wrote a letter to
the Sheriff of Sheridan county admon
ishing him to use every effort in his
power to properly enforce the law and
bring the guilty parties to justice, if
such a state of affairs really existed.
An examination revealed the fact tliat
the letter was written by a person, or
bis next friend, who had such a taking
way about him that nothing loose in the
neighborhood was safe, and the indig
nant citizens had been goaded by repeat
ed losses to send him an anonymous
communication, stating the time at
which he was to consider himself at lib
erty to leave the country.

While looking up some fresh facts for
our W. C. T. U. column, our hearts have
been stirred within us while reading such
items as these: "More than 30,000 chil
