the lad escaped unharmed.

The covering over the old town well
has been caving in some of late. This is
a mutter thai tthoiild have careful

whereby the village would be in for a
damage suit.
The prediction by tho IlriUd that

on Wednesday announcing the death of
his sister, Mrs. C T. Brady, at Crete,
Neb. He leaves for that place
this evening to attend the funeral,
which will occur on Saturday. The sad
news was quite a shock to Mr.. Guthrie,

show some indications that they were
going to get the finances of the town in
shape. A statement of the finances
would lie a good start.

the commissioners which appear in an
other column, that un expert is to be
employed to go through the county rec
ords and see who lias got more of the
public money, than they were entitled to.
it will soon be known just who of the
old ottlcers where boodlers and to what
extent and as soon as tliat is learned ac
tive stops should be taken to recover all
that can be civilly and if any have bled
the county by criminal acts, they should
lie made to feel the power of the law.
A petition is being circulated for the
establishment of a mail route starting
at Hemingford, Box Butte county, and
connecting with Lawn, Canton and Roy
ville postoflices and terminating at Har
rison. This is an excellent move for the
postal advantages of the settlors in the
south part of this county are very mea
ger, At present mail addressed to some
of the settlers of Sioux county has to go
either to Fremont or Grand Island, then
west on the U. P. to Kimball and from
there taken by stage aliout seveuty-flve
miles north. If a route can lie estab-'
lislied connecting these people with the
county seat it will be greatly appreci
ated. It is reported that the boiler used at
the pumping station is in bad shajw nnd
will have to be handled with care and
also be repaired some in the near future
in order to do its work proerly. Some
of our jM'ople have been investigating a
Kills and it is found that a windmill can
be put up at th well for $:i00.00 cash,
guaranteed to pump 500 barrels a week
into the reservoirs now in use and par
tially constructed in the town. That is
hut little more than it would cost for
fuel and a man to run the steam ar
rangement, and the boiler could lie kept
as a reserve in case anything should get
wrong with tho wind engine. The use
of a windmill would do away with the
paying an engineer and the expense for
fuel, as it would need little care except
to be oiled occasionally. It ( cost last
year about $16 a month for running the
pump, and since Jan. 1st it has cost
ntarly 97 a month for fuel. To use a
windmill and save the two items men
tioned above, would almost pay for the
windmill, and with proper care a mill
j good policy to make the investment.

Benntiful May!
Weather cool and pleasant.
(xrn is coming up nicely and the
hopes are that it will make a good crop.
Small grain is just a booming and is
screwing in fine shape. The weather be
ing cool and the ground moist gives it a
first class chance for stool ing out finely
and if nothing serious turns up will
rive a rousing crop and make the grang
ers feel happy n e more. s .
Turning over the virgin soil seems to
lie the order of the day at present. Tbe
granger still seem to have faith in
Sioux county soil.
The proof of the pudding is tle eatiag
and judging by that County Treasurer
Gayhart seems to think more of granger
ing than he does of the county treasiir
ership as he has for the pawt "few weeks
been busy putting in his crops and at
present is turning over the sod in great
shade. No objections, but the delin
quents ought to be looked after, just th
same, since the bonds failed to carry
and the county is Iiadly in debt. Mr,
treasurer you war.t to look a little out.
How is the tax business, anyhow?
Hope it will not be as hard on us the
coming year as in the post.

From the reKrts which come in of

It has teen suggested that a good
time for the stock-owners of the north
part of the county to organize to pro
tect themselves from horse thieves,
would lie on Saturday, June 7th, at
Montrose. The alliance is called to meet
there on that date and an organization
to protect each other from loss by horse
thieves can lie effected at tho same time.
A good organization of the farmers will
soon put a stop to the loss of horses, for
not even a horse-thief cares to get into
the hands of a lot of angry farmers, for
'tjvy are not noted for lieing very nierci
ul under such circumstances,
f It will be remembered that about

nas in the village treasury with WBWflT
to purchase wood, the outlook was not
very bright. G. H. Turner took hold of
the matter, stating that he would see
that wood was furnished until spring.
He circulated a paper and got 19.05
subscribed, all but 50 cents of which
has been paid in. In addition to that
three loads of wood were subscribed and
hauled. During the time lietvveen Jan.
1st and this date Mr. Turner has had
thirteen loads of wood hauled, at two
dollars a load and he also paid one dol
lar for having the lead pipe repaired.
This shows that Mr. Turner has received
118.55 and has paid out $27.00. He
therefore has paid out of his own pocket,
in addition to his subscription of one
dollar, $8.45. That the town has been
benefitted by the action of Mr. Turner in
this rnattt'r there is no question and now
it would be no more than justice for the
village trustees to re imburse him to the
amount he has paid more than his
