It has lice n remarked that the fact
pf the county clerk being allowed a dep
uty does not indicate economy on the
part of the new county administration.
The fact is that the clerk and his deputy
fire paid out of the fees, there buiptr
pone paid out of the taxes collected ex
ipt the 100 allowed tho clerk, as clerk
of the board of county cnipiissioners.
If the fees do not amount to enough to
pay the clerk and his deputy, the
fiUrk is the loser, oot ttw tax jwyr.

The supper at the M. E. church last
evening was well attended and all en
joyed themselves. The proceeds were to
lie used to pay for lifting up the parson
age and enough was taken in to clear up
the debt. The people of Harrison
always enjoy themselves at such gath
erings. EiJ A. Weir has purchased the quar
ter section of land recently owned by his
mother, east of town, the purchase
price being one thousand dollars. This
gives Mr. SVeir a half section of valuable
land in a body, close to town. There is
no question but that real estate will
greatly increase in value in the near
future. " - ' "' ',? '
' The initial nt the i-emdetM f D. if.
Oriswold on Inst Friday evening was
quite well attended and a pleasant time
enjoyed by all who Were present. It is
the intention to have such gatherings
each week, and all are cordially invited
to attend. The next one will occur on
tho evening of Thursday, Feb. l!!th, the
super at the church last evening tak
ing the place of the social this week.
With four men arrested on a crimi
nal charge in White River precinct, one
for grand larceny from Andrews pre
cinct, the numerous cases growing out
of the Rosa & Thomas matter, L. O.
Hull's suit for damage against the
county commissioners and a uunibcr of
other criminal and civil cases being pre
pared, the prospects are that the esti
mate of the county commissioners for
district court expences may not be far
out of the way.
A little controversy occurred on
Wednesday between Sheriir Reidy and
L. O. Hull. The latter bad received a
summons from the supreme court in
the quo warranto case and placed it in
hands of the sheriff for service on Mr.
Walker. After it had been served Mr.
Hull wanted Sheriff Reidy to return it
to him, but this he would not do as he
had to make his return to the supreme
court. Mr. Hull got quite healed, but
ho did not influence the sheriff to return
the document to any one but the clerk
of the court.
On last Thursday the papers in the
Brookmire vs. Rosa & Thompson case
were filed in the district court, tho case
going up from the county court on
error, and on Saturday Sheriff Reidy
served the papers on L. O. Hull as attor
ney for Brookmire. Mr. Rosa called at
our oflice ami in conversation stated
that but for the way in which tho goods
at this place had been handled they
would tw in buisness at this date, and
also that the loss would lie entirely on
himself and Mr. Thompson, and that the
creditors would get all their money.

Joe decker came up from White river
on the passenger last Monday morning,
bringing information regarding the as
sault on John Shay on Saturday.
D. II. Oriswold left on last Saturday
evening for Omaha to purchase goods
for the spring trade.
On last Saturday a row own red
in White River precinct in which John
Shay was pretty badly pounded up. It
seems Shay had taken up some cattle
which belonged to a man by the name
of Jewelt and went to the sawmill lie
longing to him to notify him of the
fact. Jewett was not present and the
notice was left with his man. Some
words were had between Shay and the
man and the result was that blows fol
lowed. There were four men at the
mill and Shay claims they all pitched
on him. At all events, Shay was so
badly pounded up that he was con li tied
to his bed for some days. On Monday
word was brought up asking that Coun
ty Attorney Walker and Sheriff Reidy
go down. Warrants were issued by
Justice Mcintosh for the arrest of Perry
Lew in, John Stratum, Frank Stratton
and Frank Sisson, charging them with
assault with intent U do great bodily
injury. The men were arrested anil
and asked a continuance) of the case
until the 14th i 11st., and gave bond for
their appearance at that time.
The lead pipes were opened the first
of the week and a supply of water is be
ing pumped into the resorvoirs, so that
the people can once more have a supply
of water. Had the pipes lieen drained
properly al ter being used they would
not have frozen, but as it is they are
busrted in some places and will have to
lie replaced in the near future. It is to
lie hojieil that the priqierty of the city
will have better care in future so that
it will not lie needlessly rendered useless.
Every effort should be made to keep a
good supply of water on hand all the
time. There is an inexhaustable supply
in the well and all that is needed is to
pump it. No town has a better supply
of water or that of better quality, than
Harrison, and it will do much to keep
away who would como here to do busi
ness if they cannot get accommodations
when they como here. How any per
son who expects to do business can be so
short sighted as to in any way cripple
the interests of the town is hard to un
derstand. H is just as necessary to
show to the farmers that we like to have
them cxiue here and do business and lie
our friends as it is to sell goods at fair
prices, to get them to come here. If
any riiun is not a friend to the farmers
he cannot expect to lie very successful,
especially in a farming community like

carried a spark from the chimney and set

horses out unharmed, but the fourth
could not tie reached in time to save it,
and died in the fire. The two loads of
hay and wagons were burned and in the
barn was a saddle, some harness and
other articles, so that the loss will reach
at least three hundred dollars. Tho fire
spread to the north and east and a party
went out from town anil succeeded in
stopping the fire before further damage
