By the dissolution of the firm of
Jones & Verity S. H. Jones severed his
connection with the flrni and also with
the Bunk of Harrison, where he held the
position of assistant cashier. This posi
tion is now tilled by C. E. Verity, and C.
E. Holmes retains his position in the
bank as cashier.
John Messing and Oeo. Heckman
have entered into partnership and en
gaged in the well and pump business.
They also handle hydraulic rums and
windmills, and have their headquarters

see preparations being made to furnish
the settlers with nulls and well fixtures.

1 A fair number of the voters of
school district No. 7 attended the special
school meeting on lust Monday alter-j
noon. All the meeting was called forj
was to elect a treasurer to fill the vu-1
cancy caused by the rumovul of John
l'hoi iiUjii from the uiatl'ict. U. Gis
wold was elected, there being 110 opposl-
tion. Mr. Gnswold will make an elli

interests of Uie school district are pro
tected. ' The "Chinook" winds of last week
caused the snow to disappear very rapid- '

The farmers have already begun to,
make preparations for beginning their '
spring -work. They seem determined to
get their -rops ill as early as possible,
It is going to be a little inconvenient'' for
some of them to get the necessary wheat :

way will bo provided so that us large an

We should like to have every farm

same for shipment., report the fact to
The Jor-RKALso that the proper showing-

the Grand 'slnnd sugnr factory. This is
a matter of great importance to the peo
ple of Sioux county and should be taken
hold of in a business manner,
J. Jensen, who has been postmaster
(it Glen, has resigned and I). Klein has
been nppointed to fill the place. While
Mr. Klein's place is close to the railroad
track it is some distance from the stop
ping place nnd the mail will either have
to lie carried quite a long way, or else a
mail hook put up so that the mail pouch
can be caught on the fly as the train
passes. It has not Wen learned when
the change will take place.
It is understood that L. O. Hull will
begin quo warranto proceedings in the
supreme court against Oeo. Walker, in
order to determine who is the rightful
county attorney. That court will do
justice in the matter, and there is one
case in the report of the decisions of the
supreme court which governed the
county board in the appointment of
Walker, and as a rule the supreme court
does not reverse its own decisions, but
if the case is tried all parties will be sat
isfied. G. E. Lunsford met with a peculiar
accident last Friday. He was hauling
water and turned to shut down the
cover on the top of the tank, when by
some means he got his arm in such a po
sition that his shoulder became dislo
cated. The joint was put in place and at
last accounts he was doing well, but the
mishap will disable him for some time.
Lunsford as he Is dependant on his labor
for a living for himself and family and
can illy afford to lose the time be will be
County Treasurer Gayhart has an
orchard of five acres on his farm near
Montrose which he put out last spring.
Luring tlw summer all the trees did
well but a few have died during the win
ter. These he intends to replace in the
spring. He sayH he has no doubts that
apples, as well as other fruits, can be
grown here successfully. All unite in
baying that this is one of the best locali
ties for growing grapes that can be
foiinj. ' There is certainly do question
that the wild, fruits which grow in Sioux
county are equal to those of any part of
Nebraska, and if wild fruits thrive it is
evident that tame fruits will also tie a
success. A little time and experience
will settle that point.
Among the most valuable works of
travel and adventure in which actual
occurrences form the foundation is
"Stanley's Wonderful Adventures" by
Hon. J. T. Hundley. It contains a com
plete history of Stanley's explorations
on the dark continent covering a
period of twenty years. Beginning
with the first adventures of explorers on
that continent the work describes all the
various attempts to reach the source of
the river Nile, until the feat was at last
accomplished by Stanley. Tiie book
contains many line illustrations, show
ing some of the features attendant Uxm
the hazardous undertaking of seeking the
source of the Nile, through a coun
try filled with hostile savages. B. F.
Thomas has the agency of the book for
northwest Nebraska. He has canvassed
a little in Harrison and vicinity and has
met with the most fluttering success.
On last Thursday and Friday the
pump was run, but as the pipes leading
to the resorvoirs were frozen up ail that
could be done was to pump the water
and tin u I it to cisterns. This liad to be
paid for which is not just the right
way to do, and as it is now there is no
water in the public cisterns und the re
sult is great inconvenience to the people.
A farmer comes to town and is unable to
get water for his team without a good
deal of trouble, if he is fortunate enough
to get it at all. Something ought to be
done to remedy this, trouble. if water
cannot be hud here the people will be
obliged to go elsewhere and' the result
will be a great injury to the business of
Harrison, if it is desired that the farm
ers come here to buy goods, care should
be taken thai, it is made as pleasant for
them as possible and a farmer does not
care to go to a town nnd send his mon
ey where he cannot even get ' wuter for
his horses free. Cannot some means be
devised for overcoming thie difficulty ?
