From the number of new business
enterprises just opening in Harrison and
the excellent prospects for still further

! A Steam Flouring Mill for HarrUou
I Almost Assured.
The indications are that Harrison will
have a fine steam (louring mill ready for
operation by the time the wheat crop of
1H90 is ready to be converted into flour.
For some time the writer lias been in
correspondence with E. A. Thomas, of
Sioux City, and as a result on lust Sat
urday Mr. Thomas arrived here to look
the matter up. He has been busy since
bis arrival investigating the prosiects of
such an enterprise and is highly pleased
with the prospects for the future of this
locality as a wheat growing country.
He will not fully decide until he returns
home, but it will lie hut a short time
until he will determine what he will do
in the matter. We have known the
gentleman for over twenty years and he
is a practical miller of lurge experience
and should he decide to come here,
as he is almost certain to do, our ieople
can rest assured th:it Harrison will have
as fine a flouring mill as any town in
In addition to the mill work Mr.
Thomas will also prepare to handle all
the wheat and other grain which would
come to this market. With a good mar
ket assured for their crops the
farmers should go to work in earnest
and put out a large acreage of grain and
it will be but a short time until excel
lent returns will lie realized.
If ieople can afford to raise wheat on
high-priced land where only ten to fif
teen bushels is harvested, there is no
reason on eartli why our jieople cannot
realize good profits from wiieat in Sioux
county, where land is cheap on which
they can raise wheat which yields from
twenty to thirty-live bushels per acre.
That this can lie done is evidenced by the
crop last year. The season.was unusual
ly dry, but the farmers raised wheat
which yielded from sixteen to twenty
live bushels per acre, and a wheat of
excellent quality. There is no reason
why Sioux county cannot lie the banner
wheat growing county of Nebraska.
The acquisition of a good mill will
naturally attract other business enter
prises and town and the entire county
will be greatly benefitted thereby.
The Jockkai, vgl iuforfu jit read,f
soon as the question of the mill is set
The Five Points land row is still go
ing on in the legal course. Last week
Bannon had the Rand brothers arrested
on the charge of false imprisonment be
fore the County Judge. Thoy ap;ared
on Saturday and waived examination
and gave bonds for their appearance at
the district court, where it will probably
lie settled. IL T. Conley is retained as
attorney for the Rands and E. D, Sat
terlee as attorney for Iiannan.
It may le of interest to our readers
who are corresponding with parties, in!
the east to get them to come here, to
know that good brick are offered for sale
at the kiln at $ per thousand. This in
addition to the low price of lumber, the
excellent building stone and the oppor
tunity to secure wood and posts free of
cost, are inducements that no other new
country can offer.
The (irst snow of any account fell
hero Saturday. It; began to fall quite
early in the morning and kept it up well
into the night, nnd was accompanied by
a good deal of wind which drifted the
snow considerable. The people were
glad to see the suow fall, for it is one
more indication of a good crop the com-!
ing the coming season. Everything isj
working to the interest of the settlers 1
and they all feel good over the prospects,
Oil" people hardly realize the advan
tage Sioux county has over other jwr
tions of Nebraska on account of being
situated so that fuel is scarcely needed
to lie taken into account as a matter of
exjiense and the result will be that
every thing that is raised here ought to
be manufactured right here. This
ought largely assist in the securing of
manufacturing industries. If the ex
pense of fuel is reduced fifty per cent, or
more, that alone would make a very
npnt net profit to be derived from any
of the largo manufacturing establish
ments, if beet sugar can lie manufact
ured at points in the eastern part of the
state on high, priced land, where fuel
costs from four to six dollars per ton,
at a profit to the fanner and also to the
manufacturer, a much better result
ought certainly to be obtained in this lo
cality where as good if not better beets
can be grown on land that has not yet
acquired a high value, and where fuel
can be had for about one-half or one
third what it costs at other points. It
was the choiip fuel which attracted the
ireiitleman who is here with a view to
I putting in a mill and cheap fuel will cert
j tiiinly attract other iudustries if our peo
I pie will only press the matter upon the
j atteulii,n of the public.

of the people of the town to assist them
in celebrating the event. Accordingly
about thirty invited guests assembled at
the family residence. After a season of
pleasant conversation and social games
the host and hostess were reunited by
Rev. I. L. Lusk, after which the compa

groaned under the weight of good things
thereon, and it is needless to say 'that
all did ample justice to the tempting vi

Relative to the snow fall in the
mountains and its effect on tlie rainfall
in this locality a number have spoken of
the subject to us since our last issue.
It is the universal statement that last
year there was little or no snow In the
mountains north and west of here and
all the old scouts and hunters predicted a
dry season, during the summer of 1889.
The result showed that their theory was
correct. Reports from the mountains
this season are to the effect that there is
a vast amount of snow in the dis
tricts, and it is impossible to travel
through them. This indicates a plente
ous rainfall during the season, of 1890.
Our settlers need not lie afraid to urge
their friends to come, come to Sioux
county to live, in fact, now is the timo
to use ull your influence to get them
here so that they can see the biggest
crop of the best quality of grain they
ever saw raised.
