with his well drill, and parties desiring
to have wells put down should see him

hours late. The cause of the delay was
O. W. Hester received his wind mill
last week and now has the mill up and

A number of covered wagons passed
. through Harrison last Sunday enroute
for tha state of Washington. It is not
often that people make a trip like that
by team in these days of railroads.
B. B. Smith has recently got up a
map of Box Butte county similar to
those of Sioux and Dawes county only
on a smaller scale. He has orders for
quite a large number of the copies to be
furnished to business men of that county.
E. M. Carrier has proved up on his
claim and has moved hit family to town,
occupying the residence owned by Judge
Barker. This is convenient to his black
smith shop, so that Bert will be better
able to take care of the work in his line
which comes to him.
Mrs. A. C, Stone, the fashionable
milliner of Crawford, will arrive in Har-j
rison on Saturday, June 7th, and remain
one week. She will have a line display
of all goods in the millinery line and in
vites all to call at W. R. Smith's store
and inspect her stock.
It will be but a few days until the
Cheyenne & Northern will have the line
completed, connecting with the Elkhorn,
. and then through trains to Iwnver will
pas over this line. It is quite likely
(hat when that is arranged a daily pas
senger train will be run, which will be a
convenience to this locality for then we
will have a Sunday mail.
It should be borne in mind that the
annual school district meetings in the
various districts will occurr on Monday,
June 30tb. The law also requires that
the levy made at such school meetings
' be reported , to the county clerk on
' -. or before the first Monday in July, which
will be the 7th day of that month.
School matters are of great importance
and should have the attention of all
The Chedron Journal says that nego
tiations are pending between the Pacific
Short Line and the Eikbora companies
for the purchase of the Wyoming branch
of the latter by the former company.
That it the line which paste through
Harrison, and should the deal be made it
, it quite likely that the road will be ex
tended into Wyoming quite a distance
beyond It present terminus thi season.
Complaint an being made that
tome settlers ur taking the water out
of streams in private ditcbta, greatly to
the inconvenience of those who live be
low Umui. Under the law there art no
streams in Sioux county which are large
enough to permit of a part of toe water
thereof to be turned from the natural
channel, an doing to would interfere
with the right of others. It it to be
; hoped that the right of all will be cared
for In this matter.
For farm loans go to 8. H. Jones.
For mixed paint, oils and varnishes

E. A. Weir has his well nearly com
plex! and the tower for his windmill is
being built ready to put up as soon the
well is finislied.
By taking advantage of oiir new
clubbing offer you can get a large
amount of good reading for a small
amount of cash.
O. W. Hester has his windmill up
and will soon have it drawing water.
A little delay was caused by some of the
pump fittings not arriving.
The board of county commissioners
Will meet on next Tuesday ax a board of
equalization and all who are not satis
fied with the way their property was
assessed will have an opportunity to
appear before the board and have it ad
justed. The increasing law practice of H. T.
Con ley has mailt! it desirable that he
have an office bV himself. To this end
he has secured the building formerly oc
cupied as a barber shop, two doors north
of The Journal office, where he is better
prepared than ever to look after the in
terests of his clients. Reidy it Pollard
still remain at the old stand.
The time for the completion of the
line connecting the Cheyenne & North
ern and the F. E. & M. V. will soon be
here and then this place will have direct
connection with Lienver and through
train service will then lie put on this
line. That will greatly increase the
importance of this line and will proba
bly necessitate the putting on of addi
tional train service.
The water supply ran out again the
first of tlie week and the only way new
supply was pumped was by a subscrip
tion being taken up to purchase fuel and
some of the boys doing the work for
nothing. If the board of trustees are
going run the affairs of the town it is to
be hoped that they will soon get at it.
For nearly six months all the fuel has
been furnished by donations and it is
about time some other way was devised.

out into the country with a ..horse, and

The prairies and canyons of tint lo

On last Monday Katie, the ten-yar-old
daughter of Cteua Christens of
Montrose, fell from the roof of j the
chicken bouse at her father's farm, and
broke her right arm, just above thf el

evening and on Tuesday Vr. Shaferi let

matter was in such shape that they jUre

The animal decided to return home and
jerked away from the Judge and after
getting in town the sulky collided with
a post, releasing the horse and racking
the vehicle to quite an extent. Judge
Barker bad tiie pleasure of returning
home on foot.
A few days ago C. H. Andrews, the
druggist, confessed judgment before J
W. Hunter for some bills held against
him by eastern wholesale houses, and, of
course, that was a signal for all his
creditors to jump in and secure their
claims. Judgments were recovered by
various creditors amounting about
11,800. The stock is estimated at about
$2,500, so that with proper care the
creditors will all be protected, and it is
to be hoped that Mr. Andrews will be
able to satisfy his creditors and resume
business in a few days. If the stock has
to be sold under execution the sacrifice
necessary and attendant expenses would
have to be borne by Mr. Andrews, while
if a settlement is made and tne business
continued, no sucritlce need be made.
A few days ago a herd of cattle be
longing to u. W. Woody and E. C. Lock
wood got on the farm of Hans Uenker
and destroyed his crop. Mr. uenkers got
tome of hit neighbors to help him and
gathered the cattle in. Mr. Lockwood
came to the place and Mr. uenker pro
posed to appoint arbitrators and settle
the matter, but the owner of the cattle
declined to do Una. The cattle were re
turned to Mr. Woody's place later and
Mr. Uenker has commenced suit against
Messrs Woody and Lockwood for dama
ge. It would have been better had the
matter been settled by arbitration, at
w ere informed that the plaintiff ha
plenty of witoesM and can prove all hit
allegations. There are a lew people in
lh coucty who still try to believe . that
herd law is not in lorce in Sioux county
but they cannot Und any law permitting
cattle to range any where in the state,
and it does not took reasonable tor the in
to expect any tiuug but deleat. Xbe idea
' that the suspension ot tile lierd law at a
time prior to the last session ot the leg

for such suspension was repealed) still

be entertained by any one. it would be

which will tend to lower the total is the
fact that improvement on claims on
which final proof has not been made
were not listed at all by the assessors.
Last week Joseph iTodgers, of Sol
dier creek, had a soldier by the name of
Fletcher arrested for procuring marriage
license for Charles Young and Nancy J.
Rodgers, the latter being the daughter
of the complaining witness and was but
fourteen years or age. rletcher was
arrested by Constable Columbia and on
Saturday was taken before J. W. Hunt
er at Bouarc. On their arrival there
the complaint was withdrawn by the
father of the girl, and the prisoner was
released. L O. Hull prosecuted the
case and E. D. Satterlee defended. The
costs were paid by the parties interested.
It looks a little singular that after tlie
parties had been put to the trouble and
expense of carrying the case as far as
as they did, that it should be dismissed
without a hearing. The man had either
committed a wrong or he tiad not, and
the matter should been inquired into
and a record made according to the facts
in the case. As it is now it looks like a
Both the B. A M. and the F. E. & M.
V. railroads are offering to sell home-
seekers excursion tickets to parties in
the east at reduced rates, in order to per
mit them to come to Nebraska and look
up a place to establish a home. Now is
the time for our people to induce their
friends in the east to take advantage of
the reduced rates and come to Sioux
county and see for themselves what a
desirable place it is to live in. The
crops are all in excellent condition, the
farmers are busy breaking more kind and
improving their farms and all , tend to
encourage immigration. There is no
question but that thousands of farmers
who are paying high rent in the east
year after year, for the high priced lands
which was a few years ago secured by
the owners for a mere trifle, can come to
Sioux county and secure a piece of gov
ernment lund and improve it, and tliere
by greatly improve their condition finan
cially, if each settler will take this
matter in hand he can certainly induce
one other to come here, and thus the
population of Sioux county will be
doubled and trie properly of every one
increased in value. There is nothing
which increases the value of real estate
except the density of population, so that
it is to the interest of all to get a uiuny
