A few days ago Andrew Christian,
who lives in the edge of Wyoming, was
lifting a log when his foot slipped and
a piece ' of wood went nearly through
his foot. No bones were injured, but
he will be laid up for some time.
The farmers are all talking of put
ting out quite a quantity of sugar beet
seed, if they can get the seed. It would
be a good plan for some of our mer
chants to see if they can get a supply of
the best seed so that the farmers can ob
tain what they need.
The contest on Tuesday evening
at the M. E. Church for the Demorest
gold prize medal was well attended and
a great interest shown. The gold
medal was won by Miss Emma Weir.
This closes the work of the first class,
Sid it is probable that a new class will
be organized and the contests continued.
The school meeting announced in
the last issue for the 27th inst was for
school district No. 7 instead of No, 9 as
stated. By an oversight the figure 9
was put in when it should have been a 7.
The meeting will be at the school house
in Harrison at two p. m. on Jan. 27th.

We bear it remarked that there is a
dearth of wheat in Sioux county for
seeding purposes, owing to the small
acreage which was raised last year, it
will be necessary for organized action in
this matter. The acreage of grain
should not be permitted to sutfer for the
want of wed for the farmer to tow.
The railroad has a special rate on grain
to be used for seed and if it could be as
certained how much mora would be
needed than there is in the county a uni
ted effort would do much ' toward secur
ing the needed grain. It is getting to be
the time of year when this matter should
bt looked after.

State Auditor Benton reported to
the county clerk that during the year
of 1889 tliera were 170 pieces of land
proved up on in Sioux county. This,
with the increase in personal property
and railroad in the county will make
quite an addition to the taxable prop
erty to be listed next spring.
County Clerk Lindeman and ex
Treasurer Lockwood put in a good deal
of liard work during the past week
getting the records of the clerks office
relative to the doings of the treasure
in sh.ie. Everything in the treasure's
office has lieen checked up so that it
is known in just what shape the finan
ces are in.
The commisHioners paused an or

that all justices of the tieace in the
county deliver their dockets to tl
county clerk, prior to the next meet
ing of the county board. Notice of tlie
meeting will appear in TlfE Journal so
that the justices can be thus informed of
the date at which the dockets will be
Some time ago the hearing in the
case of Brookmire vs. Rosa &. Thompson
was had before J. W. Hunter, who was
then county judge, and a judgment ren
dered in favor of the plaintiff. The at
torney for Brookmire states to us that
the time for taking an appeal has ex
pired and therefore the case has termi
nated in favor of his client. We are in
formed tliat P, E. Baifd, of Chadron. at
torney for Rosa & Thompson, did not in
tend to appeal the case, but is preparing
to take it to the -district court on error.

tlie village funds were used up for
officers saleries, the towri is now short
of water. A subscription was circula
ted some time ago and enough contribu
ted to complete the large cistern near
the well, and enough was pledged to
do the work, but for some reason no
work has ever been done on it. As it
is something will have to be done or
water will have to be btought from
some other place. It wa understood
when the contract was let for running
the pump that a bond was to be given
for the performance of the work but
the supply of water is about exhausted.
Some action should be taken to prevent
such it state of affairs.
While the snow on the ground is a
good thing for the farmers it is rather
bad for the cattle men who have let
their cattle range for a living without
providing feed or shelter. It is said
that many of the cattle are already
getting quite poor and if the snow re
mains much longer it will cause se
rious loss to the cattle men. As the
locality is settling up quite rapidly,
the days of ranching are past and this
also goes much against the large
cattle ranches. The opening of farms
makes it necessary for the cattle to lie
herded during the entire year and it is
plainly evidenced that it is but a ques
tion of a very short time when the range
cattle will all be removed from this
part of the country.

It is a case of necesity for the compa

Mr. William T. Price, a justice of the
peace, at Richland, Neb., was confined
to his bed last winter with a severe at
tack of lumbago; but a thorough appli
cation of Chamberlain's Pain Balm ena
bled him to get up and go to work. Mr.
Price savs: "The remedy cannot be
recommended too highly." Let anyone
troubled with rheumatism, neuralgia, or

C. H. Andrews, druggist, desires to in

most successful preparation that lias yet

treatment. The article referred to is
Chamberlain's cough remedy. It is a
medicine that has won fame and popu
larity on it's merits and one that can al
ways be depended upon. It is the only
known remedy that will prevent croup.
It must be tried to be appreciated. It is
put up in 50 cent and SI bottles. For
sale by C. H. Andrews.
The new county officials have got
fairly into harness. County Clerk Lin
deman has got pretty well fixed in the
running of his office. Treasurer Gay
hurt has got his duties well in hand and
as he cannot be here all the time he has
appointed S. H. Jones, of ' the Bank of
Harrison, deputy treasurer, so that par
ties having buisness with the county
treasure can always be able to transact
it when at the county seat. The recent
ruling of the land coramisioner prohibit
ing the county judge from taking testi
mony in final proof cases cuts off the
buisness of that office so that a man can
not afford to put in his time for the
amount he would receive, and commis
sioners having provided that tho clerk
could have a deputy Mr. Lindeman has
appointed Judge Barker to that place.
That makes it so that the county
judge can always be found at , the court
house when needed and at the same
time gives Mr. Lindeman a careful,
painstaking and competent deputy. Su
perintendant Southworth is getting the
details of his office in shape and will do
all in his power to advance the educa
tional interests of the county. Sheriff
Reidy lias not selected a deputy so
far, as he does not see the demand for
one. Surveyor Dew is ready to fulfil
the duties of his office whenever called
on, and Dr. Sliafer wears a solemn look,
in keeping Vith the duties of the office
of coroner, while County Attorney Walk
er is ready at all times to do the du
ties devolving upon him as prosecuting
attorney for Sioux county. By the
amount of buisness transacted during
tlie first session of the board of commis
sioners it is pretty well demonstrated
tliat they propose to accomplish some
thing while in session. The prospect
are that under the new administration
the affairs of the public will be well
looked after. The new officers realize
that their action in all matters will be
'ilosely watched by both friends and ene
mies and as they are pledged to the peo
ple to give tliem honest, just and eco
nomical government they will put forth
