A good acreage of barley is likely to
be sown in Sioux county next wsison.
It bas been demonstrated that that is an
excellent crop to grow here, both for
quantity and quality produced.
By an oversight in the make-up on
the third puge of this issue the date line
was printed bearing date of iJec. 19th,
instead of Dec. 20th, but this being
Qiristman week all such things are ex
cusable. . It would be a good plan at this time
of year if the hose, was taken oil" the
town pump every evening and put in
some of the places of business, so it will
not get filled with ice and inconvenience
those who want to use it.
R. Wilson ha completed house on
his place just southwest of town and
(low occupies it with his family. He ar
rived here only a couple of months ago,
and now he hits it arranged so he will
soon have a quarter section of land from
Uncle 8am.
Tell your friends in the east, to come
to Sioux county if they want to live in
a place where they have nice,
leather the greater part of tjie year. It
would be hard to find a place where
finer weather prevails than the people of
Sioux county enjoy.
Tlie report that the mountains west
nd north of here are full of snow is
good news to the people of this section
of country, as it insures a plentiful rain
fall during the coming season, Every
judication points to a prosperous future
ami good times for Sioux county.
A number of the farmers are ex
pressing their intention to put out quite
a quantity of sugar beet seed. This
will give an opportunity to see just how
much an acre of land will produce and a
thorough test of the sugar yield can be
made. The beets make excellent feed
for stock.
Mrs, J, T. Weir received the sad in
telligence a few days ago of the death of
her moUwr, Mrs. Susan Taylor, which
occurred at Woburn, Mass., on Dec. 19,

death was past 89 years old, thus having
exceeded tlie three score years and ten
allotted to member of the human fam
ily by nearly a score of years.

Don't forget the meeting of the
tecwr association, Jan. 2nd and 3rd,
18S9. The program is prejiared to be in
teresting to all who may attend. A
good attendance will do much to encour
age the teachers in their work.
On last Friday tlie school was given
a treat by the teacher, Asa Davis. The
good things were brought to the school
house without the scholars having any
idea of what was in store for them. The
affair vaa highly enioved by all, and
lends to make good feeling between the
teacher and scholars.

We received a communication from
Squaw creek last week, but the writer
neglected to sign his name. It is a rule
that cannot be broken, that we cannot
publish any communications unless the
name of the writer accompanies it, not
necessarially for publication, hut as a
guarantee of good faith. Our .friends
will please bear this in mind in future.
The trouble in one of the northern
nreeinots mentioned in 'our last issue
grew out of a claim held by young Ban
nan, and contested by Dave Rands. Tlie
latter was building a house on the land
and Bannan tried to prevent him from
doing so and a row ensued. Albert
Rands, a constable, ordered a cession of
hostilities in the name of the law and at
tempted to take a knife away from Ban
nan, and as a result got quite a severe
cut across the hand. It is likely the
matter will have to be settled
in the courts. It was fortunate that no
more physical injuries were inflicted.
On last Tuesday a couple of tlie
nm,iirs of Urn school board of school
district No. 7 were arrested, charged
with emliezzlement. The case grows
out of the school board letting the board
,.fi,..-inr ili village of Harrison
have some money, which has not been
paid back to them. The proceedings
were dismissed as the action was not
brought in proper shape. The school of
ficers may be liable for the amount u
they fail to got it from tho village, but
it is a mystery how the charge of em
bezzlement can be made out of it. The
complaint was sworn out by H. Mern
lleld. The long-looked for and much de
uiNJ nassentrer train on this line is now
. .... cin 'i..u Mnndnv morning the
a ia t. vyi, I...,.,
n.i train of the new service passed up
the road. It is a nice train, consisting
of a combination mail and express car,
umnljor. dav coach and sleeper. This
gives the people along this Hue an op
portunity to travel rapidly and comfort
ably and in making a trip to Onvalia or
return they can get into the sleeper and
not have to change at all during the trip.
Th nassenger tram going west arrives
here at 8:1)1 a. m., and going east arrives
at 6:30 p. m. The freight going west ar
rives at 11:33 a.m. and.going east arrives
at 2:05 p. in. This makes it possible for
