It Is quite a loss an he had his winter supply of meat in the smoke bouse preparing it for urn. The grand masquerade ball on New Years eve promises to be the mrmt en jojiblts event of the season. 10 one hould fail to attend. Good times are alway had at the balls of Harrison. Rev. Lusk. nastor of the M. E. church, reports tliat he and his family tre highly pleased with northwest Ne braska and that the church is in a pros perous condition, and the attendance on the increase. All whd enlov dancing should be lure to attend the ball here on New Year's eve, The indications are that larger number will be costumed than ever before and the result will be that a grand time will be had. The indications are that a good ses sion of the teacher's association will lie had on Jan. 2nd and 3rd, IBM. Art ef fort should be made by all interested in the welfare of the educational interest s of the county to be present 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 cars. A subscription paper was circulated a few days ago to raise money to com pletethe large cistern near the town ell, and it was understood that work ould be commenced at once. There appears to be some hitch in the matter as thinn ifill mnain a thpv were. It i to be hoped that it will be completed n the near future. -Elsewhere in this issue appears a card of 8. L R Maine relative to a special chool meeting, which was petitioned for. It that than is some mis take in the matter as the petition con Wns a provision for the election of e achnnl A,r.t and there is no . .Mown ifi uiiihivi , - caocy on the board. The petition "b that the meeting be called on Dec. 0, 1980, but the petition was not filed In time to give the requisite fifteen days notice ao that the director does not feel that it is hi duty to call the meeting. -It is reported that the engineers of IftlT V a.

This is tood news for Harrison and Sioux eouoty for it will not be long until thie Une will become an important one and the development of the country west of fcw will aesist in the development of this MctJon.

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 ment proceedings against the county afr torney. 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 therefrom. The change in time on this line of fi ElUhnrn anbears to have been only for temporary purposes, as it is reported j i ..f! U.. rnctuin I on pretty gooo auiuuniy ui v -- gen train will be put on the first of the week, connecting with wnai is kuowu the Black Hills express, at Chadron. This will make it so that the passenger will arrive here at 8 a. m. from the east awl about 7 p.m. from the west. It is also stated that a sleeper will be at tached to the train. It takes a little time for the Elkhorn people to get a matter in shape, but they generally try to protect their interests. It is rumored that the B. A M. will change its time so Qa to hold the east bound passenger un til the Elkhorn passenger arrives from i l f Winnie will not care to change provided they can get just a Kood accommodations on u line. The people along this line will be , -.n(i htf the rivalry between the two roads and it is safe to say that the 4l n this line will be larger? creased when tig new train service is es- tablished.

Weir & Co., To the Legal Yoters of School District Jlumber 7. 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.

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.
