The ladies' "aid society met at the M.
E. parsonage on Wednesday afternoon
and the following officers were elected:
Miss Minnie Smith, president; Mrs. C. E.
Verity, secretary ; Mrs. E. D. Satterlee,
treasurer. The society meets next
Wednesday afternoon at the residence of
Mrs. E. D. Satterlee.
Treasurer Gay hart remarked while
here the first of the week that he ex
pected to come to the county seat in the
near future and take a hand in looking
after the delinquent taxes, which should
have been paid into the treasury long
ago. Those indebted to the county need
not be surprised if an officer comes to in
terview them, armed with a distress war
rant, A party living a couple of miles out
of town occupied about a column and a
half of the last issue of the Herald with
a statement regarding the finances of the
village, in which he makes the situation
as clear as mud. It is not an official
statement by the board of trustees as the
law provides shall be published, so it
does not fill the bill.
Supt Southworth made a trip
the "bad lands" a few days ago and wai
rewarueu oy nnuing a number of very
nice petrifactions. Among the lot was
a perfect egg and also one that had been
cruslied; some young ducks which hod
also turned to stone, and a number of
pieces of bone, wood, etc., making quite
a collection. A great many curiosities
are to be found in the localities known as
the "ba lamia."
-The report comes to us' that's few days
ago the little child of A. E. Gates, of
White River, met with a terrible acci
dent, having been kicked in the head by
a horse. The little one was taken to
Fort Robinson and the post surgeon
dressed the wound. It was necessary to
nsTWehavenot teard how the
patient ia getting along.
F We are Informed that W. B. Wririifc
has handed in his resignation us a mem
ber of the board of village trustees. It
is apparent that he does not feel like be
ing one to attempt to get the matters of
the village in shape, after they have got
into the condition they are said to be in.
unless the public affairs are run ac
cording to law, trouble is certain to fol
low, for people have got tired ofhaving
things run hap-hazard.
On last Saturday, the suit of Hans
Denker against E. C. Lockwood and D.
W. Woody for damages done to tlje crop
of the former by the stock of the latter,
came up in the county court. Ho de
fence was attempted except to show that
it was for damage done at th same time
for which the replevin proceedings were
begun before J. W. Hunter and certified
to the district court, on account of the
stock being appraised at over $500. The
result was that the court rendered judg
ment for the plaintiff in the sum of $46,
the costs being taxed to the defendants,
amounting to about $35. As soon as it
was admitted that the case was for the
Su,m damage for which the stock was
taken up, the defence left the court room
and let the plaintiff go on with the cuse
alone, but why such a course was taken
is hard to surmise.
The board of county commissioners
met on Monday,' expecting to .find the
bond of the expert ready for approval,
but instead of a bond it was found that
he had backed out and would not give
the bond required. That settled the
matter, for the board do not want the
books examined unless the party doing
the work guarantees that it is correct.
On Tuesday the board began its work as
a board of equalization, and will proba
bly remain in session for that purpose the
remainder of this week and all of next
Week. The. returns show that the as
sessment is much lower this year than
last, a number of items listed in previous
years being left out this year altogether.
The total will be about the same as last
year as near as can be estimated at pres
ent . The state auditor has not yet sent
in the assessment of the railroad lines in
the county,, and the board will be obliged
to remain in session until that is received
even if they get the rest of their work
ftne before that time. So, far there lias
been no complaints of assessmenU being
too high, The levy will have to be the
same rate aa it has been every year since
the county was organised, 15 mills on
tt dollar valuation, and it will require
pretty close figuring to hay much, if
any surplus, to apply on the outstanding
Indebtedneas. The expenses of 1990 will
tap to bi paid flnt and what ia W wilt
