Bert Dew was elected county sur
veyor of Sioux county, Nebraska. He
will filj the office well, and when Sioux
county people know him they will learn
that he has qualities fitting him for a
much Utter office than surveyor.

It is frequently remarked that the
dog ordinance appears to bo a dead letter
in Harrison. There are a great number
of useless dogs running at largo in town
and if the ordinance was enforced it
would either put quite a sum of money
in th treasury or greatly reduce the
number of dogs in the place.
The new time card went into effect
on the Elkhorn last Sunday but no
change in time occurred at this place.
The additional train service expected did
not materialise so the people along this
line have no better accommodations
than before. It is to be hoped that it
will not be long until we will have pas
senger service.
An entertainment will be given at
the M. E. church on Saturday evening,
Sov., 23, by Miss Mary E, Ilarter. This
is a graduate of the Iowa college
for the blind and the program will con-
of musical and literarv selections.
There is no one but would be benefited
the entertainment and none should
'ail to attend. Admission 25 cents;
children 15 oenta.

videA with a bell, the school bell is used
for calling the people together for
chnrch purposes. This makes it much
more pleasant as it causes all to feel
that Harrison is progressing and it will
not be long until other indication of
prosperity will be added. Schools and
churches go far to induce people to lo
cate in a place and we hoie to see Sioux

It is quite a surprise to the many
new settlers to see snow and ice disap
pear before tne northwest winds here as
most of the people are used to seeing the
mercury fall when the wind comes from
that direction. Nebraska is justly proud
of the fine climate which prevails all
over the state, but this locality is more
favored than the ffreater .pu-Uon . ot -tint
commonwealth. In addition to that, fi-
el i phnr Hmn in nnv other nnrt of
the state and that is a big item to a poor
man. In tlie eastern part of t he state it
is hard to get any fuel except high-
nriced coal, while here the farmer can co
and get wood for the trouble of hauling
it and cotil can be purchased at J3.50 to
fl per ton which is cheap enough.
Preparations are making for a grand
ball at the court house on Thanksgiving

pleasant forall whoattend. The good
time eujoyed at the ball last Friday ev
ening proves that good times can be had
here at dances and a large attendance is
looked for on Thanksgiving night.
The ball at the court house on last
Friday evening was a most enjoyable
affair. There was a good attendance
and everyone present appeared to enjoy
themselves immensely. The court room
makes an excellent place for dances and
the coiling and walls make the music
sound nicely. There was one thing no
ticable and that was tliat although the
ball was given in honor of the result of
the recent election there was nothing to
make it the least unpleasant to those
who had been supporters of the fusion
ticket, and a number of the most earnest
workers for the defeated ticket were pres
ent and had as good a time as any one.
It was demonstrated on that evening
tliat Harrison and vicinity can have as
nice dancing parties as any place and
those attending are as orderly and gen
teel as those who go to dances in older
settled localities. This indicates that
Sioux county is being settled by a very
desirable class of people to live among
and when you write to your friends to
come out here tell thsm we have just as
good society here a they have at home.
Another thing is deserving of, men
tion and that is that excellent music
is rendered by Messrs. Bartlett, B'unlj
Bron., Oalpin, McJrea nnd Patterson,
and that adds greatly te the pleasure of
the dancing parties.
