It is noticed that some of the boys
are in the habit of going to the depot at
train time and jumping on the train to
take a ride, getting off when the train is
in motion. It would be well for parents
to look to this matter before some of the
boys are killed or crippled for life by the

Tim first of week J. W. Hunter
went liefore Justice Jones and asked to
have the replevin case against E. A.
Weir dismissed at his cost. This is the
case growing out of Weir taking up a
horse belonging to Hunter for getting in
to his grain field. The latter filed an af
fidavit asking an adjournment, a letter
press copy of which affidavit was framed
and hung up in the store of the former
for a long time, and read by the most of
the people who visited the sfore.
Al the meeting of the commission
ers on last Monday the bond of the treas
urer for the ensuing term was fixed at
twenty thousand dollars. A nmnlwr of
hills were allowed and the consideration
of the official bonds of the new county
officers were deferred until Jan. 6, 1890.
The resignation of E. D. Salterlce as
county attorney was handed in and ac
cepted, but no action was taken in the
matter of appointing a successor. This
action will put a stop to all impeach

The fifth contest for the Demorest
prize medal occurred at the M. E. church
on last Friday evening. The medal was
won by W. E. Patterson. Only one
more contest will lie necessary liefore a
class can le organized to compete for the
gold medal. The interest in these con
tests is increasing all the time, as on last
Friday evening there were not seats
enough to accommodate near all who
were present. There is need of more
seats for the church and it is likely that
an effort will be made in the near future
to secure more chairs.
The prospects are that SiouX county
will have another line of railroad in the
near future. A mortgage has been
placed on record on what is supposed to
be the line of the Sioux City & Ogden,
better known as the Oregon Short Line,
running across the south part of the
county. Of course there is nothing cer
tain about a railroad until it is built, but
this action looks favorable. The road
will not come near Harrison, but will
materially help in the settlement of
that part of the county and as a conse
quence Harrison will derive some benefit

It is also stated that a sleeper will be at

To the Legal Yoters of School District
A petition signed by a number of the
legal voters of school district No. 7, re
questing a special school meeting to be
called on Dec. 30, 1889, has been handed
to me. There not being sufficient time
between the receipt of said petition and
the date named to give legal notice,
and said petition providing for the elec
tion of a school district treasurer, when
no vacancy exists, I do not deem it ne
rMsarv to take anv official notice of said
petition. If a special meeting is desired
let a legal request be made therefore and
it will receive proper attention.

The New Photography.
Photography is certainly a most inter
esting and delightful study, and the re
sults obtained by means of the improved
system of film photography are so beau
tiful, and the apparatus employed so
simple it is no wonder thousands of our
most cultured people are becoming en
thusiastic amateurs. The most inge
nious, and it seems by far the most pop
ular in use among experts and amateurs
alike, is the Kodak, a little instrument
measuring but 3J x Z x 6i inches, and
weighing only 82 ounces. It is a
complete photographic outfit, with lens,
instantaneous shutter and material for
making one hundred negatives, and so
compact and neat in appearance, that
any lady can carry it without making
herself in the least conspiciouS. The
Eastman Dry Plate & Film Co., of
Rochester, N. Y., are the makers, to
